Hello! I'm so excited to be participating today in Taheerah's Advent Calendar Extravaganza! :)

Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

Now, on to my project! :) Today's sponsor is one of my *favorites*, Winnie & Walter.  I adore Shay, she is one of the nicest people I've been fortunate enough to "meet" through this hobby, and I love being a part of her stamping family! :)


To create my card, I started by first stamping the Mini Scenery: Merry Berry image in Versamark ink onto coral CS, then heat set the image with clear embossing powder.  I then adhered the embossed panel to a piece of white CS before attaching it to a light gray card base with foam tape.  Next, I die cut my sentiment from silver foil using the In a Word: Noel Cutaway.  To finish up, a strip of aqua CS was adhered to the card front, the sentiment was attached to the card base using foam tape and glue (where needed), then I embellished with yellow enamel dots.

RC Blog Hop - Mouse Mail



Hello! It's the 8th of the month, which means it's Reverse Confetti blog hop time *AND* all the goodies we've been showcasing for the past few days are now available! :) 

To create my little mailbox ornament, I started by first die cutting the mailbox base using the Mailbox Starter Confetti Cuts die on Iced Aqua CS.  I then cut a strip of Cloud White CS to 1.75" x 3.5", and topped it with a piece of patterned paper from the Very Merry paper pad.  I then glued the the paper strip to the mailbox base, pressing the tabs securely.  


I then stamped one of the mouse images from Mouse Mail in Versafine ink, then heat setting it with clear embossing powder before coloring it with Zig Clean Color markers.  Once the image was dry, I cut it out with the coordinating Mouse Mail Confetti Cuts and adhered it to the mailbox top.  To finish up, I added aqua rhinestones to the outside of the mailbox, cut a little santa hat for the mouse, and stuffed the mailbox with origami cash. :) (The $ was folded into a heart shape, but it was a little large, so I gently folded it in half before putting it inside the mailbox.)





I hope you've enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of every month for more Reverse Confetti inspiration! 

Here's the full list of today's hop participants:


Have a great one!

December SFYTT - Good Cheer Headed Your Way


Happy December 1st! :) It's the start of a new month, which means it's also time for a new Reverse Confetti sketch challenge.  

To create my card, I started by first adhering a piece of gray tree patterned paper from the Very Merry paper pad to a Cloud White base.  I then adhered a strip of striped patterned paper from the Warm Heart paper pad to the bottom of the card front.  Next, I stamped the bear and tree images from Bearing Gifts in Versafine ink onto watercolor paper, then heat set the image with clear embossing powder.  The images were die cut using the Bearing Gifts Confetti Cuts, then colored with Zig Clean Color markers.  



Once the images were dry, they were adhered to the card front using foam tape.  I then used the Tag Me Confetti Cuts on a piece of Iced Aqua CS, then stamped one of the sentiments from Bearing Gifts in black ink.  The sentiment strip was then adhered to the card front with foam tape.  To finish up, I embellished with blue enamel dots.

To create my card, I started with a white card base and created a striped pattern using the single tear drop row in the In Bloom: Julie's Roses set.  I then stamped the rose and leaves images in Versafine ink and heat set them with clear embossing powder before coloring with Zig Clean Color markers.  


Once the images were dry, I cut them out and adhered several of the leaves behind the rose after coloring them with a Winks of Stella glitter marker.  The sentiment was stamped in black ink onto a strip of light aqua cardstock, trimmed into a banner, then adhered to the card front with foam tape along with the flower and leaves.  To fnish up, I embellished with yellow enamel dots.

25 Days of Tags w/Reverse Confetti - Merry Christmas



Hello! I'm so happy to be participating in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags Day 23 event today using some of my favorite Reverse Confetti stamps/dies and a fun, albeit unusual, holiday color combo. :)

To create my tag, I started by first die cutting a piece of aqua CS using the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts, then topping it with a piece of white CS that had been die cut with the Dots Tag Layer Confetti Cuts.  I then die cut a piece of silver foil using the Wreath Confetti Cuts, and nestled a light coral die cut Swirlie inside.  



Next, I die cut the trees using the Branch Out Confetti Cuts on gray, aqua, coral, green and yellow CS, then assembled the pieces before adhering them to the card front.  The sentiment from Jolly Holiday was stamped in black ink onto a piece of light gray CS cut out using the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts. A yellow tag topper was cut using the Hang Ups Too Confetti Cuts, then it was adhered to the tag front before tying it off with a coral bow.  To finish up, the sentiment was adhered to the tag front using foam tape, then I embellished with green enamel dots.



As a little something extra, Reverse Confetti is having a Black Friday sale! Here are the deets:


Have a great one!

W&W Blog Hop - Tour of the Stars



Hello! Today the Winnie & Walter team is having a blog hop to showcase some of the amazing goodies available for purchase this month. :) Hopefully you've reached my blog by way of Heather's blog (if you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please click HERE).

To create my card, I started by first stamping one of the leaf images from Framed with Evelin T Designs in Versafine ink, then heat setting them with clear embossing powder.  I then colored them in using Zig Clean Color markers and set them aside to dry.  I then stamped the berries from In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals with Angelica Suarez in Versafine ink, and heat set them as well in clear powder before coloring.  Once all the watercolored images were dry, I die cut them using the coordinating Cutaways.  



Next, I stamped the flower image from Frenchy's Florals in light peach ink, and die cut them using the coordinating Cutaways.  A large die cut circle was then cut, and the flower, leaf and berry pieces were laid out and adhered to the outer edge of the circle.  I used the In a Word: Shine Script Cutaways on silver foil and adhered it above a die cut created by using the In a Word: Bright Cutaway on coral CS.  I then adhered a strip of aqua CS near the bottom of a kraft woodgrain card base, and attached the wreath to the card front using foam tape.  To finish up, I embellished with clear gems.
