Color Throwdown #652 - AHOY!


Welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Bar is our hostess and has chosen an inspiration piece with the colors: turquoise, blue, green and kraft. As you'll see below, the inspiration piece is a dreamy tropical island theme and while looking through a bin of wonderful old stamps, I came across this fun image that reminded me of it. I paired my swash buckling crew with Reverse Confetti's Letter Cuts Confetti Cuts to spell out a sentiment as well as a cloud from Honey Bear.

This week's colors are blue, green, turquoise and magenta, and I've used a funny sweet image and sentiment from Paper Smooches. Monster love never ages, am I right?

Here is this week's inspiration and below are links to the rest of the CTD team and friends. Have fun playing along this week!

Reverse Confetti New Release Hop

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti New Release Blog Hop! I'm so excited to be part of this fun group of creative designers sharing our latest creations using products from the July release at Reverse Confetti. You may have arrived here from Tricia Barber's blog where I'm sure you were treated to something colorful and uber-creative! 


I'm going to start off with a clean and simple card using Hummingbird. I am a bird watcher and it always thrills me to hear and then see hummingbirds zooming around my flowers. They are truly amazing little creatures and so colorful. 


Oceans of Love is another set from this release that is full of fun images to color and create fun little scenes. My underwater scene is set atop Circle of Waves Confetti Cuts, another product from the July release. 

Here are images of the products I used today...have fun looking and shopping!

Color Throwdown #650

Welcome to this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! 
This week's colors are yellow, black, grey and white. 

My card uses fun dies and stamps from Reverse Confetti. I just love this gull from Let's Shellabrate and had to pair it with a punny sentiment, so I used the YOU die in addition to Letter Cuts letters to spell "You Go Gull"! 

And now for more inspiration from the CTD team linked below:

Color Throwdown Challenge #648


This week's colors are pink, lavender, green and orange. I've used a stamped image from Paper Smooches and coordinating sentiment. I watercolored the lighthouse in the challenge colors and it's looking almost a bit rainbow-ish, don't you think? Very fitting for June, Pride month.


Now for a look at this week's inspiration and the CTD team and guests. Enjoy the inspiration and come on out to play along with us this week.

Color Throwdown #646


Welcome to this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! I'm using a set from Reverse Confetti that just landed on the retired list which can be found HERE. These adorable friends are watercolored in this week's colors - light grey, aqua and navy. As I scrolled through the retired list over at Reverse Confetti, I couldn't help but get a little sentimental. But you know what they say...out with the old, in with the new, so I'm sure there will be lots of fun, new things coming our way from Jen at Reverse Confetti.



Here's a peek at this week's inspiration piece along with the hop list below. Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments, too!

Color Throwdown #645 - Rosie!


I couldn't help but use this week's color challenge combo to create a personalized card for our newest family member, Rosie. She's a darling little thing with sharp teeth and a small bladder, so we're working on a new routine for everyone at our house and loving it! My card uses an adorable stamp set from Reverse Confetti and the newest Confetti Cuts Letter Cuts die set. Both products are linked directly below the picture.

Color Throwdown 643 - It's Irrelephant!

Punny Party from Reverse Confetti will tickle your funny bone for sure. Last week I shared my "It's Sherbet Day" and this week is "Age is Irrelephant" - get it?!  I mean, who doesn't love a good pun. And besides the funny punny, who could pass on these adorable elephants and balloons. So cute.

It's Sherbet Day!

I am still giggling over this punny sentiment from Reverse Confetti's new stamp set aptly named Punny Party! The first time I read it, I didn't really "get it". It must've been the moment I actually stamped the sentiment on my card that it hit me "it's yer birthday". Still rolling!


I colored the kitty and sherbet image using both Zig markers and good ol' Crayola colored pencils for a bit of depth. This week's colors are pink, red, green and brown. Check out the inspiration piece below and then keep on scrolling for CTD team inspiration. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Reverse Confetti!

No lion - it's a party on the blog today! 

I'm hopping with the Reverse Confetti crew to honor this month's new release and the 8th birthday of Reverse Confetti. As with all parties, there are fun prizes, party favors (products) and eye candy galore, so keep on a scrollin' to take it all in.

I'm kicking off the party with a cute little lion gift box using the adorable lion image and sentiment from Punny Party. I colored the lion image with Zig Clean Color Markers and then layered it on the You Confetti Cuts and Leafy Confetti Cuts.

Reverse Confetti's Mini Clear Box(es) are the perfect size for candy treats. Gifts don't have to be over the top, just a simple little something that says I care about you. 

Next is a card using the fish from Punny Party and sentiments from Hooray which is FREE with qualifying purchase. The open letters are perfect places to add a little color to extend the theme of the card. 

I did a bit of stamp surgery to create "Birthday Fishes", replacing the 'w' in wishes with 'f' from Hooray.


Here's a peek at the new products I used today...



And now for the blog hop!
It's a fun one, so grab a comfy seat, your favorite cuppa and enjoy the party:

You Anchor Me - CTD 641

It's been some time since I've done a nautical theme and this week's Color Throwdown colors were just perfect for it! I used a couple old, old dies to create the surf board + anchor combo and then simply tore a piece of kraft paper for the beach. In the back is my favorite YOU word die from Reverse Confetti and a coordinating sentiment, also from Reverse Confetti.


How about some inspiration from the CTD Team...

Color Throwdown #638 - I'm Missing You

 

This week's Color Throwdown colors are yellow, green, blue and white. What a joyful combination! My card features images from Reverse Confetti's Honey Bear set. I felt like I needed a little something in the background, so I added a random strips of white along the upper right side to balance out the bottom sentiment strip. 

Isn't this inspiration piece just something?
And speaking of something, how about inspiration from our team and guest...they're something special!

Color Throwdown #637

This week's Color Throwdown is up and ready for you to be inspired and play along! Our cast of colors include green, yellow, pink and kraft. I just LOVE the inspiration photo that you can see a little further down in the post. And now for my card...


 I just love this puppy set from Reverse Confetti, Corgi Cuties. I paired it with an old, retired die set from My Favorite Things to create a subtle background.

Color Throwdown #635


I'm calling this one my visual for a socially distanced Easter, everyone staying within their pod, or in this case, mushroom. Only the ladybugs seem to be traveling but staying within CDC guidelines. Dang, looks as if they've forgotten their masks again! Thanks for taking a peek inside my creative brain, ha!

This week's colors are pink, purple, aqua and yellow, and our lovely host is the lovely Susie Moore. I do hope you'll have time to check out Susie and the team for more inspiration.

Happy Birthday, RBG!

 
I have been thinking and planning, searching and inspiring to make a tribute card creation of some sort to the Notorious RBG and have finally accomplished it! This week's Color Throwdown Challenge colors and RBG's heavenly birthday provided the perfect platform for my scheming to see fruition - yeah!

Reverse Confetti New Release Hop!


I'm so excited to kick off Monday with new goodies and blog hop from Reverse Confetti! I'm hopping with the RC team and guests with more inspiration for the new stamps and dies that are NOW available, so please take a look and a hop through the entire blog list detailed below.




My creation today is featuring one of the new adorable stamp sets, Enchanted Garden. I've also used a new word die simply named You, and a sentiment from the coordinating stamp set,You Coordinates. All of the adorable images are watercolored and nestle on a birch tree background which I made using Reverse Confetti's own Vertical Stripes Cover Panel. To create the birch trees, I simply swiped a medium gray Zig brush from the left and right edges of the die cut stripes in a random pattern.

I've got a second card in honor of today's hop in my signature clean and simple style, easily mass produced using any pattern papers you've on hand.
