Color Throwdown no. 664

Short and sweet today. You can catch all the details over on the CTD Blog. I adored these colors this week, Turquoise, kraft, & Brown. I am starting to feel a pull towards creating more holiday cards. I LOVE this Tree Confetti Cuts die. I added some Pattern Panels to the background. 


I pulled out a holiday set from last year, Holiday Boughs to accent it and bring in the turquoise color. I also added some sparkle with glitter paper and the Layered Peace Confetti Cut.


Thanks for stopping by today. Come check out the challenge.

October RC Creative Hop


It's that time...October 8th means the Reverse Confetti Creative Hop is LIVE! Come follow me and check out all the amazing projects from the RC Design Team & Fetti Friends. 


I have a gift card trio for you today. My boys are older and no one goes Trick or Treating anymore, but they still love treats! Along with some candy, I am tucking in these decked out gift card holders for them. I know the way to their hearts, lol! 

I started with the Hello Holidays 6x6 paper pad and Gift Card Holder Cover Panel. I chose a different pattern for each one and added in different images from the Boo Day stamp set. 


This first one shows off the Layered Boo Confetti Cut and a greeting from Halloween Sentiments and mounted it all on to Grape Soda card stock. 



I just adore the spider and bat image from Boo Day. I added them to a Sand layer with some stamped stars. The sentiment was added in Midnight ink from Halloween Sentiments


This one might be my favorite. I adore that ghost paper and I cut a duo from Boo Day with the Boo Day Confetti Cuts. I added some Tangerine dots from Pattern Panels and repeatedly added the "boo!" sentiment along the bottom in midnight ink, again from Halloween Sentiments

Reverse Confetti/ Stamptember


Yesterday's release was awesome! Did you check it out? There is more excitement happening today! It's Reverse Confetti's day for the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Stamptemper stamp set and matching dies. It's a good one....you're going to love it. 


The stamp set is a gorgeous floral set called, Autumn Blessings. It's such a great set in the glass vase, but I decided to focus just on the blooms. I stamped just partial image in each of the corners and then colored them up in a pretty fall color combo with purples & orange. I stamped the sentiment from Autumn Blessings in the center of the panel. 



Here is a closer look at the floral details. I made sure to outline the images with a W1 copic maker to really help it pop against the white background. 


Here is a look at the stamp set and matching dies, both available today!

Reverse Confetti/ September Release

Join me and the rest of the Confetti crew & friends as we celebrate the September Reverse Confetti Release! You can SHOP THE NEW RELEASE HERE
BUT.... you might want to join me first with the amazing release day blog hop. 


I had fun combining products for my card today. I love the sunflowers from the Fall Flowers stamp set. I used the single floral image and colored it up with copics in a deep, rust fall color. I then used the coordinating Fall Flowers Confetti Cuts to cut it out. 

Rust and teal make a great fall color combo, so I stamped one of the background strips from Pattern Panels in RC Aqua ink and the sentiment from Fall Flowers in Rust ink onto a Premium Polar White panel. I then adhered my flower image with foam dimensionals and tucked in a scattering of sequins. 


I am grateful for all the love this week. Thank you. 
Come follow me and check out with Fetti Friends have to share today.

We've done Halloween and fall....now let's shift gears to CHRISTMAS!! It's the most wonderful time of the year! My first care uses the Pattern Panels for a fun & festive background in a variety of RC greens-avocado, lime green, and parakeet. I then added a sentiment from Sparkle & Shine Sentiments Midnight ink along the bottom. 


The new Tree Confetti Cut is perfect for all your holiday trees. I used three of the panels in Avocado & Lime Green card stock to make a small Christmas tree and topped it with a gold sequin. It's fun to customize the tree to any size. 


I used the Tree Confetti Cut again on one of the ornament tags below. The other one shows off the Layered Peace Confetti Cut. The Circle with Burst Tag is so fun and was the base for each of my tags below. 


Here's a close look at the Peace die. I used a few different patterns of paper from the Hello Holidays 6x6 paper pad. I hit the burst with some glue and clear glitter for some fun sparkle. 


For this tag, I added the Large Detailed Circle Frame in Premium Polar white. Along the bottom is a pretty scripty sentiment from Sparkle & Shine Sentiments in Salsa ink. I added a bit of clear glitter along the bottom.

One of my favorite parts of fall is apples! Honeycrisp are my top pick. I added a few to a bag to gift to a friend and the new Autumn Apple Cider stamp set was  perfect for creating a festive fall tag and card duo to add the perfect handmade touch to the gift. 


My card measures 4.25 x 4.25 cut from premium Polar White card stock. I added a Large Detailed Circle Frame Confetti Cut and added a scrap of the Hello Holidays 6x6 Paper behind it. I stamped the sentiment from Autumn Apple Cider stamp set. I colored up the apple and cinnamon bundle with copics, then cut out the images with the matching Autumn Apple Cider Confetti Cuts. 


I love the Circle with Burst Tag and used the Large Detailed Circle Frame again to dress it up. I added the apple cider mug and stamped a partial sentiment from the same set into the center of the mug in Midnight ink

My second project for today started with the cool new All Lined Up Cover Panel in Premium Polar White. I stamped the sentiment from Fall Flowers in Wine ink along the middle center strip. It was a perfect fit! 


I wanted to keep the sentiment simple since the Fall Flowers are the showstopper! I colored them up with Copic Markers and cut them out with the matching Fall Flowers Confetti Cuts. I used some foam dimensions to pop them up. Here's a closer look. I added the finished panel to the top of a Sand A2 card base. It's such a pretty autumn card, dontcha think?

Le's get to  my projects. I started with a cute ghostly card with the new Boo Day stamp set. I am super excited about the new 6x6 Paper Pad, Hello Holidays, this release. I picked a fun polka dotted pattern to add to the right side of the card base. I then cut the pretty Large Detailed Circle Frame Confetti Cut in Stormy card stock and layered it over a Circle with Burst Tag Confetti Cut in Premium Polar White. I pushed it off to the right of the card base and trimmed off the edge. 


I added the adorable ghost from Boo Day, cut out with the matching Boo Day Confetti Cut. I added it with some foam dimensions. I added the big bold Layered Boo cut with Midnight card stock and vellum. I then stamped a sentiment from Halloween Sentiments in Midnight ink. A handful of sequins finished off the details of the card. 


Sticking with the Halloween theme, I colored up the bat and cat image from Boo Day. I cut a some strips of pattern paper from Hello Holidays and used them to ground my images. I stamped a Boo Day sentiment in Midnight ink under the strips. 


I used the Boo Day Confetti Cuts to cut out each of the images and to complete the scene. I stamped a few stars in Tangerine ink.
