Today, I’m sharing a project made with the Flower Medley stamp set by Magenta. When I was browsing through the store, I was immediately drawn to this stamp set, the flowers are absolutely gorgeous!
To create my card, I started with a standard A2 white card base. I then stamped the floral image in gray ink across the card front two times to create a solid floral strip.
I then die cut the sentiment onto a medium gray flag, and backed it with a piece of teal blue cardstock. Next, I trimmed off 3/4" from the card base to allow room for my sentiment to hang over the edge of the design. To finish up, I adhered the sentiment strip with foam tape, then embellished with teal blue enamel dots.

One of my favorite things to do is look for ways to use stamps other than for their originally intended purpose. The flowers on this card were actually created by using the tiny vase image from the Friends Forever stamp set. A little repeat stamping in a circle and BOOM, now you have flowers. Lol, I love that! :)
To create my mini-card, I started by first using one of the edge dies from the Stitched Notes on the top and bottom of a piece of white cardstock. One of the sentiments from Friends Forever was then stamped in Versafine black ink onto the white die cut panel. Next, I stamped one of the fox images from Fox Friends in Versafine black ink onto watercolor paper, then heat set it with clear embossing powder. The image was then die cut and colored with Zig Clean Color markers and set aside to dry.
I then stamped the tiny vase outline image from Friends Forever in Versafine black ink onto white cardstock in small circles to create the flowers. Next, I went back and offset stamped the solid images onto the flowers before fussy cutting them out. The sentiment stamped panel was adhered to a sea glass cardstock card base (3.5x5") with foam tape, and the flowers were adhered on top. To finish up, I adhered the fox to the card front and embellished with silver enamel dots.

Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created for the most recent Reverse Confetti release, but hadn't yet had a chance to share on my blog. :) I think the Hanging Blooms set is *so* versatile, you can make a ton of different floral arrangements just by changing colors, let alone swapping the positioning of the flowers and leaves within the basket. I wanted to go for a more minimalist design, so I turned the hanging leaves upside down, and I love how they look! :)
I then stamped the sentiment from Hanging Blooms in Dark Roast cardstock onto Iced Aqua cardstock. The All Framed Up Confetti Cuts were used on a piece of Lime Green cardstock, and the rectangle was cut into several pieces to create chevrons. The chevrons were then adhered to the sentiment strip before attaching to the card front with foam tape. To finish up, I embellished with gold enamel dots.
Have a great one!
Hello! It's the 8th of the month, which means it's Reverse Confetti blog hop time *AND* all the goodies we've been showcasing for the past few days are now available! Yaaas! :)
To create my card, I started by first adhering a piece of patterned paper from the Free Spirit paper pad to a Cloud White card base. I then used the Drop Cover Panel Confetti Cuts on a piece of Cloud White cardstock, and adhered it to the card front. Next, I used the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts on a piece of coral cardstock to cut out the scallop layer and topped it with a circle that had been stamped with one of the sentiments from the Easter Blessings stamp set.
Next, I stamped several elements from the Blooms 'n Buds stamp set in light pink, coral and Navy Blue ink. I then cut out the flowers and leaves using the Blooms 'n Buds Confetti Cuts and adhered them together. The Wheat Confetti Cuts were then used on Sand cardstock and adhered behind the flower clusters. To finish up, each cluster was adhered to the coral scallop layer before attaching the sentiment panel to the card front with foam tape, and gold enamel dots were added for extra interest.
I hope you've enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of every month for more Reverse Confetti inspiration!

Hello! It's the final day of Reverse Confetti March sneak peeks, and today I'm sharing a card created using the new All About Ewe stamp set and Striped Frame Cover Panel die. Isn't that sheep adorable??! I am a sucker for Dawn Machell's illustration style, I think she has such a unique eye and the perfect amount of whimsy!
To create my card, I started by die cutting a piece of Cloud White cardstock with the Striped Frame Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die. I then adhered a small strip of striped pattern paper from the Free Spirit paper pad behind the frame, and adhered the die cut to an Iced Aqua card base. I then stamped the sheep, bird, fence, grass patches and flower from All About Ewe in Versafine ink onto watercolor paper before heat embossing the images with clear powder. The images were then colored with Zig Clean Color watercolor markers and set aside to dry.
Once the images were dry, I cut them out using the coordinating All About Ewe Confetti Cuts, then adhered them to the card front using adhesive or foam tape. The sun and clouds were stamped and die cut from the Weather it Together set, then adhered to the card front with foam tape. To finish up, I stamped the sentiment in black ink directly onto the card front before embellishing with silver enamel dots.
