Reverse Confetti January Color Challenge


Happy Friday! Ok, so it's Friday here in New Zealand, but if it's still Thursday for you don't hate me - I bring great news! It's time for the January Color Challenge at Reverse Confetti!


Gorgeous right? Even better, get your Reverse Confetti stamps inky, link up and you'll be in to win $20 to spend in the Reverse Confetti store!


My palette is a little more muted than the gorgeous inspiration pic - I promise that floral is more orange, not red in real life! The layout is this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch.

I inked up the fabulous Paper Crane set today. The crane was pieced twice, folding up the wings on the top crane. I've used the large tag from the Tag Me Confetti Cuts for the banner. I've also used the Love Note die and the Arrow Die...

Speaking of the Arrow Die, I found this awesome new way to use it...


Cut two, layer as shown and you get an amazing tribal looking border! The best part? it is the exact width of a standard US card base! Love that! I've used this border on my card, running it through my xyron and giving it a coat of glitter before layering it under the love note.

Here's the inside of my card...


Head on over to the Reverse Confetti blog, I've seen some gorgeous cards from the Confetti Crew using this combo, you won't want to miss them!




Stamps: Paper Crane (Reverse Confetti) Paper: RSVP (Basic Grey) Ink: Espresso Truffle (Memento Luxe) Dies: Confetti Cuts: Tag Me, Love Notes, Arrow (Reverse Confetti) Other: Sequins, Glitter

Clever use of the die! I hate it when color doesn't photograph right. But the card overall looks really wonderful and the photo is clear and sharp. And you made 2 cards! Nice CAS one, right up my alley!
