Reverse Confetti-Count down to Confetti Day 1

So excited!! It's that time again, it's a new month and a brand new release!! The Reverse Confetti December Release Countdown to Confetti has begun! So much cuteness packed in to the next four days, you won't want to miss it. Stamps and Confetti Cuts fill the list this month, if you were looking forward to new colors and papers, don't fret....they will be back in January. All the Details are on the RC Blog, be sure to start over there for a full list of design team members sharing projects today. 

Today we are kicking things off with the adorable little mice called Mouse Mail. I colored two of them up with my Copics and then used the Mouse Mail Confetti Cuts to cut the pair out. Check out that sweet little 3D mail's a new Confetti Cut and so, so fun! It's called Mailbox Starter. The stamp set and confetti Cut are a perfect duo! 

Here is a close up of the Mailbox Starter. I cut it from my favorite Mist card stock and the flag from Stone card stock. I attached it with a pink brad, so it would really work. The Confetti Cut has all the parts, and then you cut a 1.75 x 3.5 rectangle of card stock or pattern paper to complete the top. I added a smaller 1 inch strip of Warm Hearts 6x6 pattern paper across the middle for an accent. I used a glue dot to hold the door close and I filled it with some chocolate espresso beans. 

Here is a closer look at the card. I stamped the sweet little envelops with Stone ink onto Cloud White card stock and then cut a Lacy Scallop Circle frame from Mist card stock. I then added the mice with some foam dimensionals. I added a trio of mini hearts cut from the Mail Box Starter Confetti Cut

I mounted all the layers onto a top folding A2 Stone card base. Gosh, I love those mice! Aren't they so sweet??!! 

How about a closer look at the products I used. 

That's it from me today. Be sure to check back tomorrow for more Countdown to Confetti. See you then.

Dec.1 Curtain Call-Sweet

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

 You should come play along, the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

I got busy with some Lil' Inker Designs stamps and dies. I used the candy cane striped paper from Reverse Confetti's Very Merry 6x6 pack. In place of the ginger bread man, I used this Santa from the Moody Santa set. He is too much! I love that you you change his expressions and the sentiments in the set are awesome. I did choose a different sentiment for this card, though. It's from the All the Christmas You'll Ever Need 2 and I stamped in on a kraft panel cut with the Side Stitched Rectangles die. I water colored the Santa and then cut him out with the matching Moody Santa Die

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

Sweet Designers

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll come play along.

Color Throwdown 421-Jingle

Welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge 421.  The colors from this week's inspiration photo are aqua, celery green, purple and black.  Keep in mind that the colors are generic and it's fine if you want to add in other neutrals!

Once you’ve finished your card or other paper crafting project using the colors, add a direct link to your creation using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.  And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD421 if you upload your project to an online gallery. You can use the keywords #ctd421 and #colorthrowdown if you upload to any social media sites (yes, we're on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!).  All of the challenge "rules" are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.

Now that we have celebrated Thanksgiving, I am full on holiday mode! I have been dying to use this awesome word die again by Reverse Confetti. It's called Jingle All the Way. So I made it the focal point of my card. I cut it from Iced Aqua card stock and then used the Pop Up Circle scalloped circle to add a bit more interest to main panel, and then I popped up the whole panel.  In the corner (I know, I know.....there are no corners on circles)  I incorporated the other challenge colors with the beautiful Layered Snowflake Confetti Cut in Spring Moss, Grape Soda, and Black Licorice cardstock. I tucked in a some bits of Cloud White, too. A sprinkling of festive sequins and this one was done. 

Click the links above each designer photo for even more inspiration from our talented team to get you started. I cannot wait to see what you all create with this week's colors!

Reverse Confetti-November SFYTT

Hope you all had a fabulous holiday and that you are still enjoying the weekend. I hosted my family for Thanksgiving and we had a great day. I am back today with a card for the November SFYTT with the Reverse Confetti crew. There is still time to play along. Come check it out. 

I used the fun and festive bear from Bearing Gifts. I stamped him on Cloud White Card stock and used my Zig Clear Color Brush markers. I cut it out with the matching Bearing Gifts Confetti Cut.  Circle Band Confetti Cut to create the diagonal panel with Mist card stock and then covered the circle up with the Dots Tag Layer to follow the sketch. I added in one of the Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts and stamped the sentiment along the bottom with Navy ink. In the background I layered on a piece of the dotted chevron paper from Warm Hearts paper pack.  

Here is the sketch. Be sure to stop on by the RC Blog for all the challenge details. I can't wait to see what you have created this month. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back, soon!

25 Days of Christmas Tags with Reverse Confetti

Welcome friends! Excited to be a part of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event.

 I am fortunate enough to get to post with two different teams. Today I am featuring a tag with the gang from Reverse Confetti. I love round tags, so I grabbed the Lacy Scallop Circles  cut with Mist card stock (oh, I love thee!!!) and made it into a tag. I layered on a  Pop Up Circle stitched plaid paper layer from the gorgeous paper pad, Warm Heart 6x6 paper pack. I stamped a sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments in Royal Purple ink

I added a small flake from Snowflake Trio in Cloud White and topped a tiny heart from the Layered Snowflake Confetti Cut. I tied on a piece of Natural Twine

Here is a close up of the products I used today.
