Reverse Confetti - Tag You're It Challenge - Christmas Bear

I hope you had a fantastic Monday!   I decided to participate in the Tag You're It Challenge.   I have been on a streak making Christmas tags for my holiday presents.  It is the one thing that I try to do each year.    I love to make my own tags and if I make a few extra, I have a head start for next year.   I always need a lot of tags!    

This is one that you can easily reproduce.    I started off by using the Pierced Round Top Layers and cut two panels from Bristol Smooth cardstock.    I then ink blended with Island Blue and Abyss Reverse Confetti dye inks.    These are wonderful inks that blend so well together.    

I stamped the bear from the Christmas Bear Stamp sets and colored with Copic Markers and then die cut it out with the Christmas Bear Confetti Cuts.   I used the tree from the Merry Christmoose stamp set and stamped it in Abyss ink onto the background.   I used the Pierced Round Top layer and die cut it again for the snow bank so that it had the pierced detail to match the main tag.   

The sentiment is from Sentimental Christmas and it was embossed with silver embossing powder.   

I used the Tag You're It Challenge for my inspiration for my tag today!   Check out the link below for the current challenge and link up.   

I hope that you can play along!   Thanks for stopping by!    Share with me what you like to make for Christmas each year!

Reverse Confetti - Bearing Gifts

Happy Sunday!   I played along today with the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.   I saw this card on instagram and cased it to create my card today.    I used the Bearing Gifts stamp set from Reverse Confetti and the tree from Merry Christmoose.  

It is a non traditional Christmas card!     I used Distress inks for the trees and then lightly colored the bear and gifts with Copic markers.   

I added some clear sequins to finish off the card.   I am entering this card into the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge this week - the challenge was to make a card with a gift(s).    The sentiment was also from the Bearing Gifts stamp set.  I love the pop of black against the rainbow trees!

Christmas Tags - Reverse Confetti

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

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

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.   

Check out the Reverse Confetti Blog for what the other Confetti crew have to share with you on this month's sketch and check out your chance to win a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store!

Reverse Confetti Merry Christmoose

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.
