Case this Sketch - Reverse Confetti Nuts About You

Sunday, September 17, 2017

I decided to play along this week with the Case This Sketch challenge.   I used the new Reverse Confetti Nuts About You stamp set and the sketch to make a fall card.   I stamped my images on Kraft cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.    I cut them out with the matching Confetti Cuts.   I also stamped a trimmed out piece of Stone cardstock and stamped with two of the smaller images from the stamp set in Stone ink.   

I then trimmed down several of the patterned papers from the new 6x6 paper pad, Every Little Bit, and started building my card based upon this weeks sketch.   I trimmed a piece of Dark Roast cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment from Nuts About You in Liquid Platinum embossing powder.  

To finish it off, I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the leaves.

Reverse Confetti - September Sketch For You To Try

Saturday, September 16, 2017

Hello Fetti' Friends!   It's my turn to share with you my take on the September Sketch For You To Try.    I am using some fun new September release products for my Halloween card that I am sharing with you today.    I absolutely love the new Monsterous Stamp set!  

I started off using the Fa La La Confetti Cut for the scalloped circle and ink blended with Distress inks and also trimmed a piece of Midnight cardstock with the same scalloped circle and then die cut again with the Nuts About You grassy border die.  

I stamped the monster and pumpkin from Monsterous along with the bat and spider from Too Cute To Spook with Versafine ink and then clear heat embossed the images and colored them with my Distress inks and Zig markers.   The sentiment was white heat embossed onto the black grassy border. 

The patterned paper is from the new Every Little Bit 6x6 paper pad from the September release.   There are some gorgeous patterns in this pack and you will reach for it over and over!    The moon is made from using the circle die from the Lacy Scalloped Circle Confetti Cuts that I used some Distress ink on and then covered with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.   

This is such a great sketch!  Check out the Reverse Confetti Blog for what the other Confetti crew have to share with you on this month's sketch and check out your chance to win a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store!

Color Throwdown Challenge - Reverse Confetti Haunt It & Best Witches

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Happy Thursday!  One more day till the weekend! Woot! Woot!  I am still on my Fall and Halloween kick.   This week especially it has felt like fall because we have had cooler temperatures.  Only a couple weeks away from October - can you believe it!     I made a non traditional (if that is such a thing) Halloween card using the colors from this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!     The challenge is Navy, Green and White.   I was not sure how this would turn out but decided to give it a shot!  

I started out cutting some Navy and Avocado cardstock with the Wonky Stripe Panel and stamped with the stars from the Best Witches stamp set and white heat embossed the stars.    I stamped and colored the Mummy and Bat from Best Witches and colored with my Copic Markers.   I die cut the moon from white cardstock and the Lacy Scallop Circles Confetti Cuts and covered with clear glitter.  

The sentiment is from the new Haunt It stamp and die cut with the new Tag Duo Confetti cuts onto Midnight cardstock.   Everything was layered up onto a A2 sized Stone card base.   It turned out pretty cute for a non traditional Halloween card!

Addicted to Stamps Challenge - Holiday - Fab-BOO-lous

Sunday, September 10, 2017

I am back today playing with the Addicted to Stamps Challenge again this time the theme is Holiday which was perfect for me as I am in the Halloween creating mood!    I used my new My Favorite Things stamp set from Birdie Brown called Fab-Boo-lous!    It is just adorable.    I stamped my images and colored with Copic markers.  I also stamped and colored another MFT Stamp called Grave Situation.    It added just the perfect touch for my spooky scene.  

To make the scene for my little ghouls, I used Distress Ink Oxide in three colors: Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron and inked a full panel.   I then die cut the MFT Solid Birch trees and Grassy Fields border die in Black Licorice cardstock.    

For my greeting, I used the Stitched Oval Word Window die and cut a window for my sentiment from the Fab-BOO-lous stamp set.   I trimmed the panel with Blueprints 1 large frame and then layered it onto a Black Licorice A2 card base.  

I loved how it turned out!    I added some Clear Pico Embellisher to the sucker and some sparkle with my Clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.

Reverse Confetti New Release Blog Hop!

Friday, September 8, 2017

The Reverse Confetti September release is available now!   There are so many great goodies in this release.   It has some great products to start making your Halloween, Fall and Christmas projects!   We are celebrating with a Blog Hop and you have arrived from the fabulous Melissa Phillips blog!   

Today, it's all about treats and packages!    No cards today just ways to make some fun tags to share some handmade goodness! 

To start, I made some quick fall thank you gift tags to add to some yummy popcorn bags.    I used the Nuts About You and the Fall For You stamp sets along with the Fa La La circle Confetti Cuts.

Every year, I make my own gift tags for all my Christmas presents.    I created two really great tags for presents that I will be mass producing for all my gifts this year using the Christmas Bear stamp set.  

For my background I stamped with Avocado ink onto Avocado cardstock the Sentimental Christmas set to create my own patterned paper and cut it out with the largest Pierced Round Top Layer Confetti Cut.    

The large tag uses the Boo To You Circle along with the Fa La La Circle Confetti Cuts layered together, aren't they great together!   I also used the grassy border die from the Nuts About You Confetti Cuts again!   I have been wearing that die out this release!  

The second tag is a little more simple and will be really easy to mass produce. 

I used Mist cardstock along with some Salsa cardstock with the new Christmas Bear Stamp set and colored the little bear with Copic markers.  I stamped the background with the snowflakes from the stamp set.   I added glitter border to my snowy border (using the grassy border from the Nuts About You Confetti Cuts.)   The tag was die cut from the Fa La La Confetti Cut. 

Once last treat package idea to share that can be used for Fall or Christmas.    I made some candy bar wrappers with the Every Little Bit pattern paper pad and added more tags to the top to decorate using Boo To You and the  Fa La La Circle Confetti Cuts.  They were decorated with images from Nuts About You, Monsterous and Christmas Bear.

They are really quick to make:    Take a 6x6 piece of paper and score at 1/2 inch on one end and 2 3/4 inch on the other end.   Use some strong adhesive and add to the 1/2 inch patterned paper side and along the bottom inside.  I crimp the end of mine with a very old crimper but you could add some scoring lines at the bottom to add some more detail.   Take a circle punch or die (1/2 in) and cut a hole in the top for your ribbon and thread my ribbon thru.  

 I don't measure my ribbon,  I just take the ribbon and wrap around my candy bar and leave enough at the top to make a knot.   I normally use a Hershey size bar.  If you use a bigger bar size you will need to make adjustments with the patterned paper.     You then can slide the candy bar up by pulling on the ribbon knot.      

Next up on the hop is the wonderful Heather Pulvirenti!  

Please make sure that you hop along to see all the wonderful inspiration for the September release!  

Below is a complete list for the hop.
