Reverse Confetti | Mini Release Inspiration Hop & GIVEAWAY Day 1 – Floral Chain Confetti Die Set

August 6, 2021

Hello friends! I’m thrilled to be hopping along for the first day of the Reverse Confetti August Mini Release Blog Hop. This Sunday, August 8th, there will be two new Confetti Cuts Die Sets as well as a coordinating stamp set which will be released.

I created a fun shaker card using the new Floral Chain Confetti Die Set. To start, I first diecut 6 of the base pieces (see photo below) and set 1 aside to create my shaker frame by adhering them together with liquid adhesive.

I then trimmed a piece of pale blue card stock slightly larger than 4.25″ x 5.5″ and blended some Distress Inks onto it. I started with my darkest color at the lower right corner and worked my way to the top, fading out until I reached my lightest color. For this blending, I used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. I then splattered this piece with some water as well as some diluted opaque white acrylic paint for added interest. Once this piece was dry, I then trimmed it down to 4.25″ x 5.5″. I also diecut a number of flowers from a variety of blue card stock pieces for the front of my card.

Once dry, I then stamped my sentiment from the new Scripty Sentiments Stamp Set onto the top left portion of my card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Next, I adhered a piece of clear acetate behind my top frame piece, added my embellishments, and created the shaker portion of my card.

Lastly, I added my flowers with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for lots of extra dimension.


Come hop along for more inspiration on this fun mini release! Leave a comment by 12PM CST on August 7th for a chance to win. There will be a $15 Gift Certificate for one blog commenter and also one FB commenter.  Pop on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog for more details!
