Reverse Confetti Dec. Blog Hop


Super fun day! It's the 8th of December and that means it's time for the monthly Blog Hop with Reverse Confetti. It is a non-release month but we still have  a great line up of inspiration for you. So thanks for stopping by. The fun starts on the Reverse Confetti Blog. If you have not been to the beginning, I recommend you hop on over there. Otherwise I hope you have arrived from Lisa Adessa's blog.
There is a chance to win a sweet prize....a Reverse Confetti Gift Certificate. Be sure to leave a comment on all the design team members blogs. There is a hidden prize on one of the blogs and YOU could win. 

I have a sweet little holiday decor item for you today. I just love the Hanging Out Confetti Cut. After I made this door hanger, I thought how easy this would be to transform into a bottle tag to take as a hostess gift to any holiday party this year. Just make it a little smaller scale to fit a wine bottle. 


I cut my white card stock to 4.25 x 8 inches and then ran it through my die cut machine with the Hanging Out die. I rounded the top corners and then stitched on some pattern paper. I then set it aside while I worked on the other die cuts. 

I cut two pieces of the larger Wreath die. I glued them together, carefully, right in between each leaf, and then took some time to fold up the leave portion for some pretty dimension. 



I cut a pair of Holly leaves and added some red sequin berries for a touch of sparkle. I LOVE this die, the stitch lines on the leaves just make me happy! 


The sentiment was easy with the Winter Words confetti cuts and Winter Words Coordinates. I cut out three of the "merry" word die and glued them together for some dimension. The word Christmas was stamped in black ink.  Simple and classic. 


With December here and the end of another year closing in we thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of our favorite RC creations from the year. This was hard for me to do. I LOVE so many of the products for many different reasons. I did pick three, and I hope you LOVE them, too. 

First up is this sweet card. I packed in LOTS of my favorite new dies from the year.  Leafy and Thanks Tag are two dies I CANNOT put down. The beautiful Walk by Faith stamp set is such a heartfelt stamp set. Details about the card can be found on THIS original post. 




Up next is one of my many gator cards. I LOVE anything and everything Dawn Machell designs. Her images are so fresh and sweet and super fun to color up. This little guy is from the Later Alligator stamp set. It also makes me super happy to have the matching Later Alligator Confetti cuts. This card also uses two other of my favorite products released this year....the Quick Card Panels (this set is already sold out. Remember if you love the cards, then don't wait to order them. They are a limited edition product and once they are gone, they are gone) and the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts. You can read all about the card details on THIS original post. 


The third card I decided to share today is one that just makes me smile. The color combo and a combo of a shaker card with a word die....YES!!! The introductions of Shakers 'n Frames was a brilliant choice by Jen. This die makes it so easy to create a fun, shaker elements perfect for any occasion. I also love word dies! So when the Fancy Word Confetti Cuts released I was giddy. The Fancy Word Coordinates stamp set just sweetened the pot! You can read all about the details on THIS original post. 


Check out the products below that I used for my holiday door hanger. 








Have fun hopping along and being inspired. Follow me to the talented Jean Manis's Blog. Have a wonderful day!
