Color Throwdown 518 / Reverse Confetti


Welcome and hello! It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge

Okay, some would say it's too early for Xmas since we haven't celebrated Thanksgiving yet (US) but.... it is time to work on the Xmas cards... or... whatever you wish, since the only requirement is to use the colors!! These are some of my fav colors!! This week we are playing with red, aqua, and silver

We are using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown, you are all set! As always, please feel free to incorporate any neutrals that you need in your design as well!

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD518, and please use #ctd519 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog. All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, please check them out if you are in doubt! One last detail to remember, no digital designs - only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.

I colored up these cuties with my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers on some Cloud White card stock. I just love these new Snow Bunnies and once they were dry, I used the coordinating Snow Bunnies Confetti Cuts to cut out the images and the clouds. 


I used the Mojo Monday sketch for the layout and framed up the image panel with the Lacy Scallop Frame Confetti Cuts and RC Aqua card stock. I added the touch of silver with the giant Let it Snow Confetti Cut and a scattering of sequins. I added a strip of Winter Solstice paper and stamped the sentiment in Salsa ink.

Lil' Inker Designs/ Season's Greetings



Hello friends. Woohooo it's Friday! I have been excited to share this card with you. It was so easy to create and it's such a classic holiday card with a bit of glam! I started with the new Classic Christmas stamp set from Lil' Inker Designs.


 I stamped in in Midnight ink onto Premium Polar White card stock. I used the larger corner image, stamped it twice. I used my Misti and was able to just flip my card stock without having to reposition my stamp. I did stamp one of the smaller images to fill in the center of the card base. I added a strip of designer paper.   


I then used some glitter paper and used the Season's Greetings Word Die to cut out my sentiment. I used a metal shim to ensure a good cut with all the word details. I decided to add a panel of vellum to help make the sentiment pop! A scattering of sequins and this was complete. 


I love the look and like I said, it was a quick card to make. Have a great weekend. Thanks for hanging with me today.

Reverse Confetti November Release

Wooohoo! it's release day! It's been an exciting week and we are so ready for the Big Release of all the September goodies. I can't wait to see what you all purchase AND most of all what you all create with the new products. CLICK HERE for the New Release products, but don't miss the hop.....it's full of awesomeness!  



 How fun is this new Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator Confetti Cuts? I just all the uses for this and that you can customize them for any occasion. I cut the base twice from Premium Polar White card stock and scored the bottom at .5 inch and adhered them together. Before I adhered them together, I added a strip of paper from the Winter Solstice 6x6 across the middle of the front panel. I then used the cute little stitched rounded square to cut out the window.


I still had the super cool Snowflake Magic stamp set on my desk and I played around with the layers, only adding the two larger ones. I stamped them in Lagoon and Iced Aqua inks. I used the Snowflake Magic Confetti Cuts to cut them out. I then added some clear glitter to the tips of the darker, Lagoon flake to give some sparkle. In place of one of the sentiments included in the Snowflake Magic set, I wanted to add one of the Christmas Circles in Salsa ink. I love how the larger circle looks with the tips of the flakes sticking out. I clipped the top of the bag closed with a twine and embellished with some twine and jingle bells. Such a simple way to show some love this holiday season or any reason.

Color Throwdow 518/Reverse Confetti Snowflake Magic


Hello there! Lynn is our hostess for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #518!  She chose some cozy fall colors for all of us to create with this week. I hope you'll like creating with the colors Slate Blue, Orange, Brown and White for this week's challenge and I hope they inspire you to create something special. We are using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown, you are all set! As always, please feel free to incorporate any neutrals that you need in your design as well!

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD518, and please use #ctd518 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.

 We are right in the middle of the Countdown to Confetti (scroll down to see that post) for the November release from Reverse Confetti. Today is our sneak peek of the awesome new layered snowflake set called Snowflake Magic (available Nov.8). So I decided to use it for this week's challenge. I inked up the layers in softer, muted tones of the challenge colors: sand, Mist, Tangerine. I am diggin' the non-traditional colors for this snowflake. 


For the background I used the Wonky Stripe Panel (the negative pieces) in Sand and mounted it onto some Mist card stock. I tucked in some sequins in orange and brown to play up more of the challenge colors. Simple, but packs a punch, I think.

Reverse Confetti November Countdown/ Day 3

We are on our final day of the Countdown to Conftti. You'll want to check out the last two days of posts if you missed it.

I am super excited about today's stamp set, Snowflake Magic. It's super cool and really easy to work with and layer up.It's similar in style to the previously released My Sunshine set. I used some wintry purple colors to show off this beauty today. I started with the Snowballs Cover Panel in Premium Polar White and left some of the die cut pieces in place. This allowed me some extra space to add my foam dots so I could pop up this layer. 


I stamped the Snowflake Magic images in Mist, Abyss, and Wisteria inks. It's so pretty in real life, it was really hard to photograph the light colored details. I then used the Snowflake Magic Confetti Cuts to cut out each piece and adhered them together. The mist snowflake pieces on the bottom layer I had to stamp and cut 8 times. With the help of a stamp positioning tool the stamping went quickly and the dies line up easily, so the die cutting went fast, too. 




Before I adhered the completed snowflake down, I added a few strips of the yummy Fun Times 6x6 paper pad. I added a touch of sparkle with a scattering of sequins.



Here is the list of projects for today's Hop!
So much Inspiration.
