Fall is in the air


Hello! The weather here has finally started to turn and temps are much more appropriate for this time of year.  While fall is one of my favorite seasons and I absolutely love the cooler temps, I sure could do with a little less monsoon-like rain. Lol :) I had a little incident this morning involving flip flops and ankle deep water.  Let's just say it wasn't pretty! Haha

To create my project today, I started by filling one of the plastic Treat Tubes with a nut mixture, then started working on the topper.  I die cut the large dot patterned paper from the Fright Night paper pad using the Treat Tube Topper Confetti Cuts.  The topper was folded along the perforations, then adhered to the top of the tube with scor-tape before being wrapped with jute twine.



Next, I stamped one of the acorn images from Happy Harvest in Lime Green ink, then die cut it with the coordinating Happy Harvest Confetti Cuts.  The acorn topper was die cut from kraft woodgrain CS, then adhered to the acorn base.  I then used the Wheat Confetti Cuts on gold, Cloud White and Lime Green cardstocks, and adhered the die cut pieces behind the acorn.  The Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts were used to die cut a Cloud White CS circle, and the acorn and wheat die cut pieces were then attached using foam tape.  To finish up, I adhered the acorn layer to the treat tube front using foam tape, then I embellished with yellow enamel dots.

You're So Fab{BOO}lous


Hello! Hope your week has been going well! :) I'm popping in to share one of the cards from the last Reverse Confetti release that I hadn't had a chance to share yet here on my blog.  

To create my card, I started by first creating a card base using Cloud White CS.  I then mixed together some embossing paste with Lime Green ink and used the Lotsa Dots Stencil to add some texture to the card base.  Next, I die cut a ghost shape using the Halloween Bits Confetti Cuts on Iced Aqua CS, then covered it with stickles.  While the die cut was drying, I then used the Woodgrain Confetti Cuts on a piece of light gray CS.



I then stamped one of the sentiments from Treat Yo' Self in black ink, and added a strip of Fright Night patterned paper to the bottom of the card before wrapping it with Charcoal Striped Twine.  I then adhered the sentiment panel to the card front using foam tape before securing the ghost to the card front with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with purple enamel dots.



  




Have a great one!

RC Blog Hop - Grateful for You



Hello! It's the 8th of the month, which means it's Reverse Confetti blog hop time AND all the goodies we've been showcasing for the past few days are now available.  Awwww yeah! :)

To create my card, I started by first covering a Cloud White card base with a piece of patterned paper from the Fright Night paper pack.  I then used the Leaves Cover Panel Confetti Cuts on a 4.25 x 5.5 piece of Cloud White CS, then adhered the die cut to the card front.  Next, I stamped some of the flower and leaf images from Blooms 'n Buds in Iced Aqua, gray, and black ink before cutting them out with the coordinating Blooms 'n Buds Confetti Cuts.  The die cuts were then adhered to the negative circle die cut from the leaves cover panel before being adhered to the card front with foam tape.



The Grateful, Thankful, Blessed Confetti Cuts were then used on a piece of silver foil cardstock, then carefully cut apart.  The die cut was then adhered to the card front , using foam tape to pop up the ends overhanging the circle die cut.  Next, I cut a piece of Iced Aqua CS and stamped it with a partial sentiment from Because of the Brave.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment to the card front and embellished with green enamel dots.

RC Sneak Peek Day 3 - Thank You


Hello! It's the final day of previews for this month's Reverse Confetti release, and all the new stamps, dies, ink and paper we've been showcasing will be available for purchase tomorrow! :)

For my project today, I created this adorable treat container using the new Treat Tubes & Topper (die comes with a set of 6 tubes, additional tubes can be purchased separately).  To start, I first used the Topper die on a piece of Tangerine CS and a piece of Fright Night patterned paper.  I adhered the two die cuts together (6x6 patterned paper is just a smidge too short to wrap fully around the tube), folded the perforated marks, then adhered it to my (filled) treat tube with scor-tape.  Next, I used the Envie Wrap Confetti Cuts on a piece of Cloud White CS to create my tag, then cut off the top portion at the perforation.  I then die cut the largest circle using the Circles 'N Scallops Confetti Cuts on light gray CS, then adhered it to the tag with foam tape. 



I then die cut a small Tangerine CS scalloped circle using the Circles 'N Scallops Confetti Cuts, and stamped it with a partial sentiment from Because of the Brave in black ink.  I used the Wheat Confetti Cuts on silver foil, black and Tangerine CS, and adhered the die cuts behind the scallop circle.  Flowers and one of the leaves from Blooms 'N Buds were stamped in Tangerine, black and gray inks and die cut using the coordinating Blooms 'N Buds Confetti Cuts.  The die cuts were then arranged and adhered to the orange scallop die cut using foam tape.  The scallop die cut was adhered to the tag front with foam tape before embellishing with clear gems and securing the tag to the treat tube with Charcoal Twine.

RC Sneak Peek Day 2 - Give Thanks


Hello! It's the second day of Reverse Confetti September sneak peeks, and today I'm sharing a card created using the new Happy Harvest stamp set, as well as some new coordinating dies, twine and the Fright Night paper pad.  I love every. single. thing. in this month's release, but I'd be lying if I didn't say the paper pad makes me a little giddy every time I pick it up... ♥♥♥ 

To create my card, I started by first cutting a piece of aqua blue herringbone patterned paper from the Fright Night paper pad to 4 x 5.5", and adhered it to a Cloud White CS base before embellishing with Charcoal Twine.  I then used the Lacy Scallop Frames Confetti Cuts on Cloud White CS and adhered it behind a gray CS circle die cut using the Circles 'N Scallops Confetti Cuts.  Next, I stamped one of the acorn bases and the topper from Happy Harvest in black and Iced Aqua inks, die cut them using the Happy Harvest Confetti Cuts and adhered them together.



I then used the Wheat Confetti Cuts (love love LOVE these dies!) on silver foil and Lime Green CS, and adhered them behind the acorn.  To finish up I adhered the acorn to the gray die cut circle, covered the acorn top with sugared stickles and embellished with green gems.
