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 DT......you 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!

Retro Sketch 182-let's celebrate

Welcome friends. I  am linking up the this week's Retro Sketch Challenge #182 using some Reverse Confetti pretties. 

I was inspired by Jen's card from her Periscope Make It With Me Monday segment. Have you followed Reverse Confetti on Periscope yet? You should, it's a lot of fun. Periscope is a video streaming app and you follow people and can watch them live stream from where ever they are. Kind of cool! 

I made my tag into a festive birthday layer for my card. I just love the new Thanks Tag Confetti Cut. I layered on some Stitched Flag Trio dies and then a sweet little Double Scallop Garland. I just loved the festive colors I used today. 

The birthday die is from Fancy Words Confetti Cuts and I used a coordinating sentiment, stamped in black licorice hybrid ink from Fancy Word Coordinates. I embellished with some rhinestones and some stitched ribbon. 

I followed the Retro Sketch layout, and trimmed off just a smidge of the left side of my tag. Here is the Challenge graphic.

Have a wonderful day!

Sweet Sunday Sketch- Thankful

A new Sweet Sunday Sketch is up for you! Always a great way to kick start a stamping session. I used all brand new Reverse Confetti products for today's card. 

I love the pumpkins from the Pumpkin Patch stamp set and used the matching Pumpkin Patch Confetti Cuts. I also stamped and cut out the other pumpkin bits, too and  added them over top of some stenciled polka dots. I sponged those on in a rounded pattern to matching the circle in the background of the sketch. 

I also cut some pretty yellow Leafy leaves and tucked those in. I LOVE this die. Get it if you haven't yet. I finished it all off with a scattering of sequins. 

Here is this week's sketch. 

Now hop on over to the

Welcome stampy friends! I have a sample for the September SFYTT Challenge with Reverse Confetti! I LOVE this layout and it was perfect for me to use for this not so happy of an occassion. I will tell you as sad as I was having to make this card, it sure was great therapy for me.

I used mostly all new products that were just released on this card. I can't stop using the amazing new Thanks Tag Confetti Cut. I then used the Fall Fun Quick Card Panel and cut it out with the large solid circle from Circle 'n Scallops. I stamped the sentiment from Lots To Say  in the middle of the circle and happily tucked in some of these sweet, sweet leaves from Leafy Confetti Cut

Here is the sketch!

Curtain Call-Pop Pop Pop {and a gnome}

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

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

Once again, my card might seem like a stretch from the inspiration photo. Once again, I'll tell you that is one thing I love about stamping, it can take you in many directions. So here I was inspired by the textured of the popcorn, the kraft and green and I had to bring in a patterned ribbon. Hey, I even pulled in  a bit of the buttery color of the popcorn on my gnomes hat! 

The texture of the popcorn was re-created with the Lots of Dots Embossing folder from TE. (I used all TE products here....you can find the links at the bottom of the post). I stamped my gnome from Under the Toadstool and colored him up with copics. I used the matching dies to cut him out. The small rectangle is from Build A Tag 4. I punched a hole and tied on the gingham ribbon. 

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