Happy Birthday, Jen!

Monday, August 13, 2018


Today is a very special day - it's Jen del Muro's (milestone inserted here) BIRTHDAY!  The Reverse Confetti Design Team is surprising her with a celebration blog hop!!  Be sure to stop by the Reverse Confetti blog and leave Jen a little birthday love :) then hop along with us!


For my card, I used Salsa cardstock as the base and layered a panel of Sunshine cardstock and a pattern design from Cheerful & Kind.  Then, using the inlaid die technique, cut a Premier Polar White cardstock square with the Candles Confetti Cuts die and 'filled in' with different colored cardstock.  I framed the candles with one of the Stitched Squares Confetti Cuts dies cut from Lime Green cardstock. The sentiment is from the Birthday Wishes sentiment set!


Jen, hope your birthday is filled with wonderful, happy surprises!!

Dies R Us - Puppy Love

Friday, August 10, 2018


It's not often I make cards for kids...we only have a few little ones in the family, but I couldn't resist this little puppy die which I felt was perfect for a child :)


For my card, I started by layering a few patterns from Doodlebug Designs Puppy Love paper pad - so cute with great patterns and fabulous bright colors.


I then used Frantic Stampers Rover Puppy Love dies to cut one of the patterns in the paper pad and layered little rover on a dotted circle die cut from Tutti Designs.  Then, I cut the words in this die set from black cardstock.  Super easy card!


Here are the products used:



 Tutti Designs - Dotted Nesting Circles

 The colors of summer are bright and beautiful.  We've had enough good rains to keep everything lush and growing -- it's fabulous -- and an inspiration for my card :)



I first layered Lime Green and Midnight cardstock onto the card base.  Using the new Geo Panel, I cut Premier Polar White cardstock as a backdrop.  For the colorful leaves, I cut several patterns from Cue The Confetti paper pad and coordinating cardstock using the new Mod Floral Stack Confetti Cuts.  The sentiment, from the Mod Floral stamp set, was white embossed on Midnight cardstock.

Saturday Coffee Cafe - Cuppa Cactus

Saturday, August 4, 2018



Welcome to the Saturday Coffee Café.  I’m so glad you stopped in today!



The cactus and succulent craze is still going strong.  I have to admit, these are the only plants that have any hope to survive with my brown thumb 😊  I guess you need to water plants…who knew?!  My daughter loves cactus and succulents and is able to keep them alive, growing and beautiful.  When she takes them back to school, I’ll be enjoying my ‘fake’ ones and I think the cactus (or is it cacti) are grateful for that!



These cactus, however, will live forever thanks to Lil Inker Designs!   For my card, I layered a bright pink cardstock and a pattern paper design from Lil Inker Designs So Prickly Paper pack.  I added a piece of kraft cardstock to the bottom and cut a dark brown cardstock using one of the Pink & Main Stitched Circle dies.   




I then used Lil Inker Designs Coffee Talk 2 die set to cut another pattern paper from the So Prickly Paper pack and cut green, pink and brown cardstock using this darling So Prickly Cactus dies!  I stamped one of the sentiments from the Coffee Talk 2 stamp set onto another pattern paper from the So Prickly Paper pack.
