Sparkly Christmas Tags - Reverse Confetti Wednesday in the Works

Hello! I have a new edition of Wednesday in the Works on the Reverse Confetti Blog and YouTube Channel this morning - this week I have some fun and sparkly Christmas tags to share with you! Just in time for wrapping up those Christmas gifts and goodies and adding some sparkly fun to them! I combined Topped Off Tags with Stitched Rays Cover panel, added a sparkly snowflake using Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts, and a sentiment from Triangle Trees to build these - then some glitter cardstock and washi tape, jewels, and sheer ribbon to pull it all together! The silver and sparkly pink goes so well with the combo of Stone and Iced Aqua cardstock!


Thanks so much for stopping by - have a great day!

Happy Anniversary - Simon Says Stamp You Are Loved Release

Hello! So...did you think all the fun was over when the DieCember release for Simon Says Stamp came out at the beginning of this month? Well - you are in for a treat, because there is another FABULOUS release that just went live! The Simon Says Stamp You are Loved Release is simply amazing - and full of fabulous new stamps and dies! Click HERE to go shop the beautiful new goodies in this release! I put this card together to share today - and in honor of it still being DieCember, I also tried to mostly use die cuts - adding just a stamped sentiment from one of the new stamp sets.


I may have to gush for a moment here about this GORGEOUS new die called Outline Clustered Leaves - isn't it BEAUTIFUL?!?!? I wanted to make a somewhat graphic card with it, with some pops of bright colors, so I die cut it from white cardstock, then layered it over a couple layers of SSS cardstock die cut with Wonky Rectangles Dies. I used Audrey Blue and Green Apple for the layers. 


I actually trimmed the leaves in half to use at the top and bottom of my card - it is quite large, and more than covers the front of an A2 card - this is definitely a fun way to change it up and make it more versatile!


I heat embossed my sentiment from a new stamp set in the release - Always and Forever - on a strip of black cardstock, mounted it with foam adhesive, then finished off with some beautiful Pretty Pink Posh Pearl White Jewels to make it a little more glamorous!

Peace and Joy Glittery Layers - Simon Says Stamp DIEcember

Good morning! Today I'm sharing another Simon Says Stamp DieCember Release Card with you, featuring one of the fabulous new dies, paired up with some lovely glitter cardstock for a sparkly and fun card!


I started off by cutting the gorgeous new Holiday Knit background die from white cardstock. I played around with some different options to place behind it, until I popped some glitter cardstock behind there - and then I knew that was the way to go! I used two different shades of SSS glitter cardstock - Aqua and Silver - laying it out so the silver was behind one center stripe of the pattern, then adhered all those layers together.


Next, I added a sentiment from Tiny Words Christmas Stamp set, heat embossed on a thin strip of black cardstock, and with a bundle of silver thread tucked behind it. For just a touch more sparkle, I added a few silver PPP jewels. So hard to fully capture the sparkle in person - but this card is so sparkly and elegant in real life - and possibly the best part? None of that glitter will rub off or get everywhere! YAY!

Watercolor and Glossy Watercolor Card - Simon Says Stamp

Good morning! I'm actually a little slow to share this card, because it uses one of the lovely pre-printed watercolor cards in the (SOLD OUT) Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit - Holiday Cheer. While this isn't available on it's own, there are LOTS of similar ones that I've linked to at the bottom of my post today! All of the Suzy's Watercolor Prints for Simon Says Stamp are beautiful, printed on watercolor cardstock (that also works with Copics and colored pencils by the way!) - and are so fun and portable to take along for coloring on the go! THIS Happy Holiday's Collection has many similar images in it - but make sure and check them ALL out HERE to find your favorites!


I actually took this (along with several others!) and my Daniel Smith watercolors when I went to Hawaii last month. Funny, because I didn't end up with much time to color actually - this is the only one I actually finished! I restricted my colors for this to the dot card that came in the same card kit - so if you were lucky enough to get your hands on the kit, this is a peek at what you can do with just those four colors!


Once I got home and got some time, I added some Glossy Accents to some areas of the design for a bit of shine and dimension.


Once that dried thoroughly - actually for several days by the time I got to the next step - I die cut that panel with Stitched Rectangles, and mounted it on a Surf Blue Cardbase.
