Christmas Tags - Reverse Confetti

Sunday, October 22, 2017

Hey there!   Hope you had an amazing weekend.   I had one crazy week, we created our Halloween graveyard for Halloween and I have been busy making tons of Christmas tags and cards!  

I am sharing some tags that I made for Christmas this year.    I love making my own gift tags and these really came together very easy.   I minimized the layers and just ink blended onto a circle to make it look like snow and stamped the main tag with Versamark ink for a simple strip.   I then added some images that I had colored up and cut out a while back.    These came together so quick!  

I love to match my wrapping paper and this is one of the papers that I will be using for Christmas this year.   It actually isn't Christmas paper but just plain wrapping paper that I got at Michael's.    I white heat embossed the sentiment from Sentimental Christmas onto some Brick cardstock and cut them out with the Tag Duo Confetti Cuts. 

I made them assembly line style which made it go really quick.    The main tag was die cut from Topped Off Tag and then stamped with Versamark ink and the So Stripey Stamp set.  The circle is from the Fa La La Circle Confetti Cut and sponged with Seafoam ink and then splattered with white paint.   

 I used the following stamp sets for all the images that I added to each tag:  Christmas Bear, Merry Christmoose, and Jolly Holiday.   I added some red and white baker's trimming to finish them off.  

I am entering these tags into the Addicted to Stamps Clean and Simple Challenge.

Beary Big Adventure - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Stamp Challenge

Thursday, October 19, 2017

Happy Almost Friday!   I played along with the Simon Says Wednesday challenge with add a sentiment!    I really was not sure what exactly that meant other than have a sentiment on your card!   I did my favorite coloring with my Copic markers and ink blending a background.  I did stamp and heat embossed the sentiment to make it really stand out on the card!    Walking on the edge people!  

I love this bear from the Beary Big Adventure stamp set from My Favorite Things.   It is just adorable  and fun to color.   The main panel and ground were ink blended with Distress inks and then I spritzed them with a Stampin UP Spritzer.   I know that it is retired but Tim Holtz came out with one.  I still love using it! 

I missed posting my card for the challenge but thought I would still share!   Thanks for stopping by! 

Reverse Confetti October SFYTT

Monday, October 16, 2017

Hey Fetti' Friends!   It's my turn to share my project for this month's Sketch For You To Try!  I am still trying to make a few more Halloween cards to send out.  I used this new Every Little Bit 6x6 paper pad for the layers on the card.

I used Too Cute to Spook and stamped the images and colored with my Copic Markers.   I added them to a white panel cut with the Lacy Scallop Frame Confetti Cuts and backed it with some Midnight cardstock.   Everything was placed on a Midnight card base and the sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Reverse Confetti Merry Christmoose

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

I played along with the CASology challenge this week sharing a card I made with the Merry Christmoose stamp set.    It is hard for me to do clean and simple cards.   I tend to be bold and bright in my card making.    I stamped and color my images from the Reverse Confetti Merry Christmoose stamp set and cut them out.  

I then ink blended some light blue inks onto a Bristol panel and then added some snow to the panel using embossing paste and a snowfall stencil.    I trimmed a piece of white card stock with the Nuts About You border and added some glitter to the edge.    I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Merry Christmoose on a scrap of red cardstock.   The panel was then trimmed down and placed on top of some Reverse Confetti Mist cardstock.  

The challenge this week was "ODD".   I used the design theory of odd numbers - for the focal image, I have the two trees and the moose - group of three.   Odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye because they will form a visual triangle.

Reverse Confetti October Blog Hop!

Sunday, October 8, 2017

Welcome to the October Reverse Confetti Blog hop!  You have hopped to me from the sweet Melissa Phillip's blog!  This month I am sharing a Spooky Halloween card with you using several of the products from the September release and combining them  oldie but a goodie stamp sets.  

I stamped several images from the Monsterous, Too Cute to Spook, and the Best Witches stamp set and colored them with Copic markers.   I ink blended several inks over some watercolor paper cut to 3.5 x 9 inches and used a circle mask to create my moon.  I splattered some white paint over the night side of the ink blended panel and set aside to dry.   I used the Pierced Round Top Layers Confetti Cut and some Lead cardstock to create my grave stones.  I sponged the edges with Stone ink.  

I also used the border die from the Nuts About You Confetti Cuts and trimmed a long piece of Midnight cardstock.   I just ran it thru my die cutting machine twice to get the elongated border.  Before assembling the spooky scene, I stamped the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Haunt It stamp set and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The finished panel was placed on a 4 x 9.5 inch card base of Midnight cardstock.

For my next project, I made two cute little treat packages for Halloween as well.   This time I stuck to the traditional Halloween colors of Black, Orange and White.    I found these yummy peanut butter eyeballs to put in the treat boxes!    I hope these make it till Halloween:-)

For the first treat, I used the Treat Tube Topper and Treat tubes along with the Best Witches stamp set.  I cut white cardstock with the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cut and layered it with Midnight cardstock cut with the Dots Tag Layer.    I added a Tag Duo Confetti cut tag stamped with the Haunt It sentiment and white heat embossed it.

For the other treat box, I used the Box Wrap and Clear Treat Box and cut it from Midnight cardstock. I stamped a monster from the Monsterous stamp set and a small spider from Too Cute to Spook stamps sets and added them to the box.    My tag was made from the Boo to You Circle Confetti Cuts.

Next up on the hop is the adorable Lisa Henke!
