SFYTT June - Masculine Birthday

Hello! I'm popping in with my take on this month's Sketch For You To Try! This is my lovely husband's birthday card, he's 33 today!

Here's my take...

Roundabout Additions was just perfect for this sketch, and I've used lots of lovely Confetti Cuts to build the layers - Documented, Circles 'n Scallops, Triple Chevies, Shakers 'n Frames.

I used the Oh My Stars Confetti Cuts to cut some embellishments. The balloons are from the fun Monkey Business set.  

Here's a peek inside...

There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.
The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 29th. 
Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!
You may enter as many times as you wish.
There will be a winner each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 30th of this month.

Reverse Confetti Creative Hop!

Welcome to the June Reverse Confetti Creative Blog Hop! Today the Confetti Crew are sharing Masculine Anything-but-a-card ideas - so if masculine projects are hard for you, you'll find tons of inspiration along the way!

Someone will also win a $15 gift certificate to Reverse Confetti just for leaving comments along the way! You should have arrived here from the talented Kay Miller and if you need to start at the beginning of the hop, you can jump over to the Reverse Confetti blog.

I love the Sugary Sweet Sentiments - they are perfect for masculine or feminine projects. Here I've filled a store bought clear pillow box with root beer candy. The papers are actually Christmas themed, but I thought they looked great with the color of the candy!

I used a Folded Tag Confetti Cuts to decorate the box, adding the sentiment stamped on a Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts - I LOVE these dies!

I love texture on masculine projects, and the Tassel Confetti Cuts cut from felt add great texture! The stars are cut with the Oh My Stars Confetti Cuts.

Thanks so much for visiting - leave a comment to be in to win then pop over to see the fabulous Laurie to continue on with the hop!

I am definitely a coffee girl! I reached for the wonderful Coffee stamp set for my card today. This actually started off as a full size, really layered card - but as I came to stick everything down I just loved the simplicity of the focal layer. I switched to a 3.75x4 card base and accented with the coffee bean stamp.

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!

TGIF! I had a moment to play along with the lovely Fusion Card Challenge this morning, using some great Reverse Confetti goodies.

I used both the sketch and the inspiration graphic for my card. 

I hadn't had a chance to use this beautiful sentiment from God is Good yet - it looks gorgeous stamped in Hero Arts navy ink. The papers are Flea Market from Crate Paper. I've used one of the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts for the flag, and embellished with the sun from the Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts.

I added a couple of stacked wood veneer pieces and sponged the edges with kraft ink. Thanks for stopping by!
