Get Cracking on Christmas Challenge


I am so excited to be joining Jenn Shurkus and this fabulous group of crafters for this fun Holiday Hop. Every year so many of us card makers say we run out of time to create our own holiday cards. Jen and Chari started this monthly feature on their blogs to help kick their own booties in gear and not be stuck without cards this holiday season. It's the third Thursday of the month, and  we are inviting you all to join us. Come make a holiday card, or two or three to get a jump start on your own holiday stash. You should have arrived here from Teri Anderson's Blog. You'll find the full blog hop listed below. 

I had fun with the Reverse Confetti Mod Floral Stack stamps and all the green inks by RC. I created a Christmas tree and love how it turned out. I started with the darkest ink, Olive,  at the bottom with the largest Mod Floral Stack stamp and worked my way up with the smallest image in the lightest ink (in order here are the other colors I used: Lime, Pistachio, and Seafoam). I used the Mod Floral Stack Confetti Cuts to cut them out. I topped the tree with a white glittery star from Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts



I added all the pieces to a Premium Polar White card stock panel cut from the Lacy Scallop Frame Confetti Cut. I stamped the sentiment from Sentimental Christmas in Avocado ink. I finished the panel off with some clear rhinestones for another little extra bit of shimmer. 



I am so excited to see what the rest of the line up has in store for us. Lot's of holiday inspiration, that's for certain. I'm the end of the line up, so follow me back to Jenn's blog so we don't miss any of the excitement.

Color Throwdown 501- birthday sheep


Hello everyone! Amy Rysavy here as your host for week's Color Throwdown challenge! I still find myself obsessed with the color combo of grey and yellow together so when I saw this room picture I HAD to use it for inspiration this week! The colours for this week are to use grey, yellow, kraft, and white. Remember we just use generic colors (so any brand/type/whatever you have will work) and you can always feel free to add in neutrals (white/black/etc) to make your creation pop!

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD501, and please use #CTD501 and #colorthrowdown on social media so we can find your gorgeous creations!  When linking up your creation using the linky tool below, please be sure to link your specific post, not a general link to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, and you can always check there to be sure!

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.

Here's some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the CTD team to get y'all started!

I shopped my stash today and boy am I so glad I did. I discovered something exciting with this sweet little sheep from Lil' Inker Designs. The stamp set is called Farm Love and I colored up the sheep and the little heart bouquet with Copics. I then used the Farm Love Dies to cut them out. When I did this I discovered that the sheep had extra cut lines around his arms so he can hold all the things! yay! I know I should have already been aware of this, but I never used this image during the release. So it was a happy discovery! 

I used one of my favorite cover plates for the background in Sand card stock. It's called Quilted Stitched Harlequin. I just love it in kraft. The sentiment is from Hand Drawn Happiness (isn't is soooo pretty??!!) and I mounted it all on a Dual Stitched Circle die



Check out the beautiful creations from the team this week! They are sure to inspire you, they always inspire me!! Have fun creating, we cannot wait to see what you come up with using these colors!!

Reverse Confetti July Release

 Wooohoo! it's release day! It's been an exciting week and we are so ready for the Big Release of all the July 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!  

I have two quick projects to share today. I love our blog hop days, they are full of so much inspiration. I hope you'll follow along. So let's kick things off here with an easy treat box with the Treat Tubes. I love these to give little boxes of yummies. Today I filled on with goldfish crackers to go along with my sentiment. I used some Sand card stock and the Treat Tube Topper Confetti Cut


For the tag I used some Premium Polar White card stock and cut the larger solid circle from Falala Circle Confetti Cut and then stamped a sentiment from the Great Adventure stamp set in Midnight ink. I gave the stamp a little curve to fit the bottom of the circle. I colored up the critters in the boat image with copics and used the Great Adventure Confetti Cuts to cut out the image and a few of the waves in Iced Aqua and RC Aqua card stock. I made it into a tag simply by punching a sweet little hole in the top and adding some twine to it. 


 Here is another look at the finished product. I love that aside from the coloring, it was really easy to pull together. 

I also have a sweet card with the new Pattern Builder stamp set and the matching Pattern Builder Confetti Cuts. I stamped each later in a different color, cut them out and then pieced them together. 
 


I used some Premium Polar White card stock for the base and used the Stitched Squares  Confetti cuts for a border and then stamped one of the Pattern Blocks in Pistachio ink on the inside for my background. 


The sentiment was inked in Iced Aqua ink and is from the One Day at a Time stamp set.

Reverse Confetti July Release Countdown-Day 3

  It's such an exciting four days coming at you. we are on Day 3 of our Countdown, and  I'm so glad you are here.  It's time for Countdown to Confetti.....the July release sneak peeks start today. All the new stamps, dies, and paper will be available for purchase on July 8!

Please go to the RC blog for all the details.

You know I looooove all things by Dawn Machel and this sweet set is no exception. I started coloring all this sweet images from the new Great Adventure stamp set with my Copic markers. I created a sweet little scene centered around the campfire. I knew I wanted to use the S'more sentiment. I often decided on which creatures to use based on the sentiment I want to ink up. I used the coordinating Great Adventure Confetti Cuts to cut them out. 


I kept the panels on this card long and narrow and added the Geo Panel in Premium Polar White over Mist card stock. I then added two strips of the green pattern paper from Cue the Confetti paper pack. I set it up up on a Sand card base. I stamped the sentiment from Greatest Adventure in Midnight ink onto the double ended flag banner piece from Tag Me Confetti Cuts. Here's a closer look at all the details.
