Reverse Confetti December Blog Hop

**if you are looking for my Sweet Sunday Sketch Card, Please Scroll Down**

Eight is Great! That's our motto. Yep.....it's December 8th, so that means it's time for some blog hopppin' with Reverse Confetti.  Last month’s release was full of holiday magic as well as some gorgeous everyday sentiments. As we look forward to the holidays, it’s now time to start thinking of those small gifts, tags, treats, or just sweet notes of encouragement to spread the “Merry” to our friends, family and coworkers. 



The Confetti Crew and a few other pals have designed some great cards and projects to give you just the creative spark you’ll need to make some of your very own RC magic happen!



The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Laurie Willson’s blog. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all of Reverse Confetti’s amazing stamp sets! 

As much as I wanted to make a holiday themed item, I also really wanted to play with the Be a Barista set. So I did. I created a gifty that I can give this holiday season, or later on during the winter months. I used the pretty wintery papers by October Afternoon, Bundled Up (my FAVORITE papers right now). I created a pretty tag to dress up some coffee and a pretty card to match. 
I have some of these frosted Tin Tie bags in my stash. I simply added some yummy coffee and folded it over. I created a pretty tag with the awesome Confetti Cuts Tag Me die.



 I couldn't decide which size to use, so I added both. I stamped some pretty pink stripes from So Stripey on the kraft tag. I then stamped the "coffee & friends" sentiment onto the double ended fishtail banner die, also included in the Tag Me set. ♥ that! I punched out a heart, ran it through my crimper and tucked that behind my sentiment. I tied this large tag on with some pink grosgrain ribbon. 





I cut the smaller tag from Pink Lemonade cs and stamped the two sizes of hearts and the word "coffee" from the I Like You stamp set. I have these yummy chocolate covered peppermint stir sticks I wanted to add to the gifty. This smaller tag was a perfect way to do this. I simply used some brown twine to tie them on. 


Next up, how about a closer look at my matching card. I LOVE how this came together, btw. The colors and THAT  Sweet Treat Tent die for a card panel.....SWOON!!!


 I just love tying on a bow around that oval opening. I ran the die through my Vagabond and then cut off the tabs by lining up the score marks on my paper trimmer. 
I was inspired by this past week's Mojo Monday sketch. My middle panel is just a wee bit bigger than the sketch. That's okay, though. 



Here's a close up of my pieced up mug. I stamped the mug twice, once on the cheveron print and again on the pink snow flake print. I then stamped my foam onto cream cs with Amuse Latte ink. I added some shading with my copics and then sponged on some Tea Dye ink around the edges of all the pieces to really make them POP! 

The sentiment, also from Be A Barista was stamped with Hot Fudge ink. Stitching and another Pink grosgrain bow finish the pretty look I was going for. 


 I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! Now it’s time to hop on over to my crafty friend, Laurel’s blog.
