Reverse Confetti - Haunt It and Best Witches

Happy Monday to you!   I am sharing a Halloween card that I made and joining in along with the Simon Says Wednesday Sketch challenge.  This weeks theme was pop it up.   I popped up several images on my Halloween graveyard card to spook it up!     




I used several Halloween sets from Reverse Confetti - Haunt It for the sentiment, Best Witches for the mummy, large bat, Too Cute to Spook for the smaller bats and pumpkin and finally Frightening Friends for the pumpkin.  Whew!   That is a mouthful but I was really happy how it turned out.   






I started by ink blending with several Reverse Confetti inks in Iced Aqua, Lagoon and Island Blue inks onto a panel of Bristol Smooth card stock.   I then ran it thru my die machine with the Stitched Rays cover panel.    To create my grave stone, I used Midnight cardstock along with the Haunt it stamp set to create the grave marker.   I added a Midnight panel for the ground, it was also ran thru the die machine with the Stitched Rays Cover panel.    I added some rhinestone jewels to finish it off! 







Thank you for stopping by!   I would love it if you would follow me on Pinterest and Instagram.   
I will be sharing more Halloween inspiration all month!

My Favorite Things - Happy Haunting





Hey there!  Happy Friday to you!   Do you have any fun weekend plans?   I am popping in to share a card that I made this week for the MFT weekly Sketch Challenge.   







I used set that came out last year called Happy Haunting.    It turned out to look more like an encouragement card than a Halloween card.   I used several Distress Inks to get a really dark background and then used the Stencil Cloud border with the same inks to create a dark Halloween sky with a yellow moon.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend!  Thank you for stopping by!

My Favorite Things - Frightfully Sweet


Hey there!   I am popping in to share a card that I did for the My Favorite Things sketch Challenge at the Card Challenges blog.    I am on a Halloween kick and created this card with the new stamp set called Frightfully Sweet.  





 It has several different adorable images and I colored them all up but only ended up using two of them on my card today.     When I looked at the sketch, I decided that I wanted to create a window and make it look like the images are peeking around to say hello.   I started by die cutting a rectangle out of the a white card panel.    






I ink blended with several Distress inks (Black Soot, Seedless Preserves and Victorian Velvet) onto a panel of Bristol Smooth card stock.  I traced out where the rectangle would be and was sure to make sure that my blending was around that area and then some.   









 I added a die cut of a Halloween fence that is from a retired die at MFT.   You could use any fence, just die cut it from some Black Licorice cardstock.    You only see a small portion of it.   I die cut a sentiment banner using the Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips.  I white heat embossed a sentiment from the stamp set onto it.   I actually flipped the sketch upside down.   I added some Rainbow jewels from Lucy's Little Things and some clear sparkle from my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to the bunnies bat wing's and the band and bow on the squirrel.   








That is it for me today!   You still have some time to play if you would like to join in!    I hope you have a wonderful day!   Thank you for stopping by!    I would love it if you would follow me on Instagram or Pinterest!   I always post my projects to both!

Reverse Confetti - Frightening Friends

Hello!   I am all in the mood for Fall and Halloween.  I spent some time this weekend getting my Halloween decorations out and have the inside of my house all ready!   My hubby told me it was  a little too early to do the outside.   This year, I decorated my craft room.  Which was a first for me, I don't know why I have not done in the past.  





I made a Halloween card using the new Frightening Friends stamp set from Reverse Confetti.  I also used two challenges to create my card, the color scheme from the Color Throwdown Challenge and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.    I did a 4 1/4 inch square card and used Baby Blue and Navy Blue Reverse Confetti inks to create my background.  





To shake it up a bit, I white heat embossed my fence onto Midnight cardstock instead of coloring in.   I used my Copics to color in the other images.   I love that the Frightening Friends Confetti Cuts trims out the interior of the little devil!   I used a tiny bit of the Abundantly Autumn pattern paper to add some fun to the sentiment.

Reverse Confetti September New Release Blog Hop!


Today is the day!   Welcome to the September New Release Blog Hop!   Today all the new products are available for purchase in the Reverse Confetti Shop.    I am sharing two cards today with Frightening Friends and Triangle Trees.  

First up.....Frightening Friends!  I LOVE HALLOWEEN and this set is going to be so much fun this season!






For the Frightening Friends I ink blended with Wisteria and Grape Soda inks onto some Bristol smooth card stock.   I then splattered it with some Copic Opaque White paint that had been thinned with water.  








I stamped several of the images from Frightening Friends onto Premier Polar White card stock and then colored them with my Copic markers.  I trimmed them down with the Frightening Friends Confetti Cuts.   I added a Midnight hill trimmed with the Nuts About You Confetti Cut.   I heat embossed a sentiment in white from the stamp set. 









For my next card, I used the new Triangle Trees and created a Christmas card.   I white heat embossed the trees onto some Bristol smooth card stock and ink blended with Piggy Bank, Iced Aqua and Seafoam.  





I was inspired by vintage colors of Christmas ornaments.   I then trimmed then down with the Triangle Tree Confetti Cut.   I created a card base with Iced Aqua and then sprayed it with some Perfect Pearls.  Hard to see in the photo but very sparkly in real life! 







 I added the Christmas trees and added the window frame from the All Framed Up.  I stamped my sentiment with Midnight ink onto a strip of Premier Polar White and then backed it with a strip of glittered card stock.   I added a snowflake die cut from the Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts.  








We have a HUGE blog hop today with many guests designers to inspire you!  I can't wait to hop around to see all the wonderful creations!!!   Be sure to pick up your favorites from the release and start having some fun!

Countdown to Confetti - Triangle Trees, Holiday Gnomes, Christmas Candles

Today is the final day in our Countdown to Confetti!   Today we are sharing some fabulous new Christmas themed products!    There are three new Christmas/Holiday themed stamped sets along with the matching Confetti Cuts.  

I have two cards to share today showcasing two of the stamps sets.  First up, I just love the new Christmas Candles stamp set!   It reminds me of vintage Christmas candles.   







I stamped two of the candles onto Premier Polar White card stock and then colored them with Copics.   For the evergreen boughs, I stamped them with Lime Green and then added Avocado Green to the ends.  I used some Buttercup ink and inked the Circle from the Fa La La Confetti Cuts and then stamped the illumination  (I am not sure what you call these?) in the same Buttercup ink.   





 I then layered the circle onto a Salsa scalloped circle cut with the same Fa La La Confetti Cut.    I curved my sentiment slightly onto the banner from Flowers for Mom.   For my main card panel, I used the Triangles Cover Panel and die cut it from Avocado card stock and then ink blended with Avocado ink onto the edges.   I added it to an Avocado base.     I added some clear droplets and some Distress Stickles to finish it off.   










For my last project today, I made a cute little scene card with the new Holiday Gnomes.   I told you this release was fantastic!!!   Aren't these the cutest little Gnomes?    I ink blended Blueberry, Wisteria and Mist inks onto some Bristol Smooth card stock and then stamped it with the snowflakes from the Holiday Gnomes and white embossed them.    I love how smooth the Reverse Confetti inks blend. 






 I added two snow drift panels using the Nuts About You Confetti Cuts border die.   I stamped the trees, houses, the santa bag and gnomes onto Premier Polar White card stock and then colored them with my Copic markers.  I added a small amount of detail in with my Sakura white gel pen.   






I die cut them all out with the matching Holiday Gnomes Confetti Cuts.    I stamped the sentiment onto some Salsa card stock and then trimmed it down.   I finished it off with some red and white twine.

Countdown to Confetti - Fall Foliage and Cotton & Thistles

Welcome back to day two of the Countdown to Confetti!    Are you ready for some more great new products from Reverse Confetti's September release?    Today, we are sharing two new fall sets, Fall Foliage and Cotton & Thistles.    Can I tell you that I LOVE THIS RELEASE!   I had so much fun stamping and creating with this release.    Fall is one of my favorite time of the year and I cannot help but want to pull out all things fall right now!






I have two projects to share with the new Fall Foliage stamp set.   I created a tag and a card.   I stamped the Fall Foliage stamps onto watercolor paper and embossed with gold embossing powder.   I then watercolored the images with my Magellan Mission Gold watercolors and then die cut them with the Fall Foliage Confetti Cuts.  






For the card, I die cut the new Triangles Cover Panel twice from white card stock and then adhered them together but turned each direction to give a layered look with the panel.   I added my flowers and leaves on with foam tape and added a sentiment using the Stitched Flag Trio with Dark Roast card stock and white embossed the sentiment from the Fall Foliage stamp set.   





 For the tag, I die cut the Abundantly Autumn patterned paper and a piece of white card stock with the Pierced Round Top Layers and adhered them together.   I die cut a Wreath from Dark Roast card stock and a sentiment banner from the Flowers from Mom Confetti Cuts.   







For my next card, I used the new Cotton & Thistles stamp set.    Now you may notice that my cotton is pink!   Well I took some creative liberties here and really wanted to add that pop of color to my card!  





I stamped the images in Dark Roast ink onto watercolor paper and then used the partial die cutting method to die cut the flowers and the jar in one main piece, in the matching Cotton & Thistles Confetti Cuts the flowers and the jars are actually separate dies but it is really easy to do partial die cutting.   I also used the new Criss Cross Cover Panel die cut from Mist card stock and placed over a Sand card base.   





I layered my flower arrangement onto a Pierced Round Top Layer panel that had been covered with a little bit of Abundantly Autumn patterned paper.   The sentiment was also stamped onto Sand card stock with the Dark Roast ink.   I used my Zig's to color this image in.
