I used Reverse Confetti Stamps and Confetti Cuts for this card! I wanted to make a bunch of fresh coconuts, so I pulled out my Reverse Confetti Fresh 'N Fruity Stamp set and inked up the solid "orange" stamp from the set with green and brown chalk ink to resemble the coconuts. I cut them out with the co-ordinating Confetti Cuts. I also stamped and cut out several flowers with the Petals 'N Posies Stamp set and Petals 'N Posies Confetti Cuts. Everything is clustered on a cute tag stamped with the MFT Woodgrain Background Stamp and cut with the Reverse Confetti Thanks Tag Confetti Cuts. I tied the tag with some Hemp cord and embellished a few yellow YNS Gumdrops. I stamped the sentiment from the Petals 'N Posies Stamp set with Hot Fudge Premium dye Ink directly on the main panel cut from Primitive White Heavyweight Cardstock.

Thanks SO much for poppin' by and havin' a wee peek at my Reverse Confetti card for the Curtain Call Challenge - Tasty Tropics!

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - May 1 - Flowers for Mom


Hey Stampin' friends! Welcome to the NEW Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Charming! This month's challenge totally inspired me to make a Mother's Day card with my Reverse Confetti Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts. This inspirational photo is SO charming and I hope you have a chance to get crafty and join us!

The Lead of this challenge will be invited to to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge! 

I took inspiration from the photo for the colour palette and used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Grape Jelly, Grapesicle, Cotton Candy and Smooth White.



I know I'm too late to enter the Reverse Confetti SKFYT #35 but I just loved this fun sketch and it was perfect for my Flowers for Mom, Mother's day card, so I used it anyways.

The colours and patterns in the inspirational photo made me reach for one of my all time favourite BasicGrey 6X6 paper pads - Soleil. I layered the Circles 'N Scallops and Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts to build my circle panel and cut the "mom" die from the Flowers for Mom Confetti cuts four times and adhered them together to create a little more dimension and stability.  I adhered it to the fishtail banner from the Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts and added the flower from the Flowers fro Mom Confetti Cuts. I embellished with some purple AC hemp twine and a sprinkling of Grape YNS Gumdrops

I finished off the inside of my card too....I stamped the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Rose Garden Stamp Set on the Thanks Tag Confetti Cuts and I added a tab and a few little flowers from the Hang Ups Confetti Cuts.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - April 1 - Enjoy Today - Happy Birthday!



Hello stampin' friends! Welcome to the NEW Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Neon Nicknacks. Yet another FUN challenge...I was totally inspired by the photo and reached for my Reverse Confetti Pineapples Aplenty Stamp set and Pineapples Aplenty Confetti Cuts.

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!


I took inspiration from the photo for my colour palette too and used MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Black Licorice and Sour Apple. I also used MFT Premium Dye Ink Lemon Drop, Razzle Berry, Sour Apple and Gumdrop Green.

I've been on a bit of a "watercolouring" kick as of late and I wanted to make my own watercoloured paper with my MFT Fishnet Stencil inspired by THIS tutorial post/video by Barbara Anders on her fabulous blog Paper Pursuits and the green pineapple nicknack in the inspiration photo. I decided to use my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers instead of an inkpad and waterbrush. I used the the Pink, Light Green and Lemon Yellow markers and water to watercolour in each section of the stencil on Ranger Watercolour paper. I then cut the sheet down with the stitched rectangle die in Blueprints 13. I added a few splatters with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Black Velvet.

I stamped and cut out several pineapples with the Reverse Confetti Pineapples Aplenty Stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating Pineapples Aplenty Confetti Cuts. I also used the NEW Reverse Confetti Swirlies Confetti Cuts. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in AC Zing White embossing powder from the With Love Sentiment Stamp set on Black Licorice Heavyweight Cardstock cut with the wavy banner from the NEW Flowers For Mom Confetti Cuts
