First up is the awesome new holiday sentiment set,  Winter Word Coordinates and Winter Words Confetti Cuts! We know you love word dies and our fancy words was a hit, so here is a holiday version! This makes me so happy!

I went pretty and sweet with this Tis' The Season Quick Card Panel to set the color theme for my card. I love that peach and pink combo with the red. That new Wreaths Confetti Cut (there are 2 sizes!) is gorgeous, dontcha think?? I cut it from white card stock and added some enamel dots scattered around it. The Winter Word Confetti cut, "peace" was cut from some glitter card stock and then I stamped the Winter Word Coordinate in brown ink. 

Another favorite from this release I know is REALLY going to knock your socks off! It is a gorgeous new Layered Snowflake die. It was designed by the fabulously talented,  Kay Miller and I am thrilled that Jen made it into a die. Isn't it stunning?? Check out the graphic below to see all the different configurations for constructing your own Layered Snowflake

I started this  card with my snowflake in a combo of blues and purple. I then decided on a water colored background in similar colors. 

When that dried I stamped the Winter Words Coordinates in black ink along the bottom, leaving room for my glittery "snow" cut with the Winter Words Confetti Cuts. I just adore die cut words. Love them! And I love them cut in glitter! A scattering of sequins and a strip of striped dp along my left edge finish off my card. 

Don't forget to hop on over to the RC Blog for all the release details and to see the full list of DT members with posts today.

Sweet Sunday Sketch 289 {Happy Hello}

Welcome to the latest and greatest from the Sweet Sunday Sketch. We have a wonderful diagonal panel to work with this week. We sure hope you'll play along. It was the perfect excuse for me to use the awesome Block Party-Happy die from Taylored Expressions. 

I added a sweet little greeting from C'mon Get Happy and added a Little Bits Flowers & Stems. I thought is was the perfect little embellie!

Here is the sketch for this week.

Curtain Call-Going Batty

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

The LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

It's so exciting to see an inspiration photo and know  you have JUST THE RIGHT products to rock a card with. I made a spooky cute scene with some older RC stamps and dies. The bats from Spooky Cuties were stamped in Black Licorice hybrid ink and then cut out with scissors.

 I used the fence from the same stamp set along the bottom and added a few more Confetti Cuts to finish off the scene. The branch is from Tweet Life and the clouds are cut from Sun 'n Clouds Confetti cuts. I mounted it all up on the Woodgrain die.  I simply punched out the orange moon. The sentiment is from Too Cute To Spook

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!

Have a beautiful day! Happy October first!

National Coffee Day-Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello coffee drinking fans AND all paper crafters! I'm joining in on the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog hop and it only seemed appropriate to jump in on National Coffee Day! 

Reverse Confetti is one of the many amazing sponsors for this hop, so I couldn't help my self and had to use the recently released For the Love of Latte  and Caffeinated Cups stamps on my card today. I stamped my latte cup and then used the Caffeinated Cups Confetti Cuts to cut it out. I added a touch of texture to my sleeve by running it through my crimper. 

I used the Mojo Monday Sketch for my card layout and was also inspired by the colors from last week's Color Throwdown Challenge (Yep, missed the link up on this one, but I'm ok with that). My black panel was cut from the Woodgrain Confetti Cut. I stamped my sentiment on the circle from Fresh 'n Fruity and then layered that up with the small scalloped circle from Circles 'n Scallops. I couldn't help but tuck in some Leafy dies.  

Thanks so much for checking out my card. 
Be sure to head over to the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop for all the details.

Sweet Sunday Sketch 288- Happy Halloween

Hello Sunday folks! Are you ready for the next Sweet Sunday Sketch? Well, good, cuz I am and I just so happen to have a not-so-spooky Halloween card to kick off the day with. 

I really love the Too Cute To Spook stamp set. Up until last week I had only water colored these images. Today, I decided to color them up with my Copics. I just love my Copics. They really are so easy to blend colors with. I colored up a trio of the smaller images and used the Too Cute To Spook Confetti Cuts to cut them out. 

Following the sketch I used the Envie Wrap Confetti Cut in kraft and then layered on a Shakers 'n Frames square. I cut out a Circle 'n Scallops solid circle to show off the awesome Fall Fun Quick Card Panel. I embellished with my Too Cute To Spook images and even gave the spidey a bit of silk to hang from. I still can not stop using the new Leafy Confetti Cuts. Seriously.....get them....they look great cut from any color and can be added to just about any project!

 Here is this week's sketch!
We sure hope you'll join us for the challenge this week. 

There is more inspiration from the won't want to miss it!
It's all up on the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog.
You'll also find the link up and challenge details over there. 
Have fun and good luck!
