Reverse Confetti - Warm Winter Wishes



Hello stampin' friends! I'm popping by to share a card I made today with the NEW Reverse Confetti Happy Winter Stamp set and Happy Winter Confetti Cuts. I also used the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts


I used MFT Heaveyweight Cardstock in Kraft, Steel Blue, Smooth White and Whip Cream

I've been on Pinterest swooning over, chuckling at and pinning letterboards. I've totally fallen in love with letterboards, so, I wanted to make my own little "letterboard" for my card. I  wasn't able to get my hands on any corrugated felt so I decided to paint some Kraft corrugated cardstock with grey craft paint. I let it dry and then cut it out with my MFT Square STAX Die-namics and cut out the little letters from MFT Whip Cream Heavyweight Cardstock with the MFT LLD Little Letters Die-namics.

I framed my "letterboard" with the NEW Scallop Square Confetti Cuts and stamped the toque and nordic snowflakes from the Happy Winter Stamp set on Smooth White Heavyweight Cardstock with MFT Steel Blue and Timber Green Premium Dye Ink. I embellished with some steel grey hemp twine and sparkly white Gumdrops

I finished off the inside of my card too....I added another Scallop Square frame and used the large tag from the Tag Duo Confetti Cuts. I stamped a sentiment from Sentimental Christmas Stamp set.

My Favorite Things - MFTWSC360 & Color Challenge 82...Warmest Wishes


Hello stampin' friends! I'm quickly stopping by with a card for the My Favorite Things Stamps Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch challenge # 360 and the MFT Color Challenge # 82. I used the Winter Warmth Stamp Set and coordinating Winter Warmth Die-namics to make a non-traditional Christmas card.



I made a 5X5 square card and used Blueprints 14. I flipped the sketch around so I could put the sentiment at the top of the card. 

 photo MFTWSC360C_edited-RS3_zps38qmezcq.jpg
I used the rounded corner panel from the Blueprints 14 cut from Natural Heavyweight Card Stock and stencilled with Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink with the Reverse Confetti Pointed Out Stencil. I cut two mitred corner strips from yellow sparkly card stock and then clustered the various stamped images from Winter Warmth Stamp set along the strips.

I stamped a white embossed sentiment from the Hug in a Mug Stamp Set on Neutral Heavyweight Card Stock cut with the fishtail flag from Blueprints 12. I tied the sentiment panel with coral hemp twine and embellished with coral enamel dots. I flicked on some little white splatters with watered-down Sweet Tooth Pigment ink.

Color Throwdown # 469 & Reverse Confetti SFYTT # 54 - Beary Christmas


Hello stampin' friends! I'm glad I found some time this weekend to make this card with my Reverse Confetti Bearing Gifts Stamp set for the Color Throwdown Challenge # 649...such a gorgeous colour combo! I used the November Reverse Confetti Sketch for You To Try # 54 again....love, love, love this versatile sketch too!


I used Reverse Confetti Card Stock in Navy and Baby Blue and MFT Heavyweight Card Stock in Grout Grey.  I also used Distress Ink in Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Black Soot
Here is the fabulous Reverse Confetti SFYTT # 54!


I used the "smooshing technique" on watercolour paper with Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Black Soot Distress ink and then cut it out with the Gift Card Holder Tag Confetti Cuts and cut a second tag from Navy Cardstock then stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Bearing Gifts Stamp set.


I colored up the sweet Bearing Gifts bear and the mountains with my Copics and stamped several trees on the "smooshed" watercolor paper. I popped the bear up on the Navy Scalloped circle cut with the Pop Up Circle Confetti Cuts. I cut everything out with the coordinating Bearing Gifts Confetti Cuts.  Finally, embellishing with Navy hemp twine and sparkly silver YNS Gumdrops.


I finished the inside of my card too....I stamped a shadow image of the Bearing Gifts bear in Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink and embossed another sentiment from the stamp set cut with the Tall Tag Trio Confetti Cuts

Hello stampin' friends! It is time for another FUN challenge over at Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge for Nov. 15 - Acorns. We have another fabulous inspirational photo for you to use if you choose or anything goes! When I saw this photo I knew this Your Next Stamp Autumn Animals Stamp set would be perfect and I'm playing along with the Your Next Stamp Sketch Challenge # 77 too. 




I used the YNS Sketch # 77 but swapped out the circle element with the largest Cool Tag Die Set from Your Next Stamp.

I wanted to colour up the SWEET squirrel for my card. I just adore the wee acorn he's holding with a smiley face! Too cute! I stamped the images with  Your Next Stamp Black Olive Premium Dye Ink and coloured them with my Copics. The YNS Black Olive ink is specially formulated to be compatible with Copic Markers. I then cut out the images with the coordinating Autumn Animals Die Set and created a little scene on the tag with the YNS Spring/Summer Create a Scene Die Set.

The sweet sentiment is from the Autumn Animals Stamp set, stamped on Grout Grey Heavyweight Card Stock with MFT Paver Red Premium Dye. I embellished with American Crafts Brown Hemp Cord and Your Next Stamp Gumdrops.

I stamped the images from the Forest Friends set on Bristol paper with Archival Brilliance Black Pigment Ink and then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then I coloured them up with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush pens. I used the Woodgrain Panel Confetti Cuts and coordinating Documented Confetti Cuts for the main panel. I cut the scalloped panel from the Love Note Confetti Cuts from Brick Cardstock and tucked it under the Woodgrain panel. I also tucked the Avocado fishtail banners cut from the Hang Ups Confetti Cuts

Your Next Stamp Sketch and Colour Challenge # 76...Deck the Halls


Hello stampin' friends! I made some time this weekend to play with NEW stamps from Your Next Stamp - Deck the Halls and join the Your Next Stamp Sketch and Colour Challenge # 76. This set is SO darn cute and I'm totally in love with these cute little animals dressed for winter and decking the halls. I'm excited that I was able to get a start on my Christmas cards and I know I will be making more cards with this darling Deck the Halls stamp set



The YNS Sketch Challenge # 76 is such a great sketch....I flipped it around so that it would work better with my images. 



 photo YNS76B_edited-RS2_zpslfepybj2.jpg

I used the Tim Holtz Crackle Stencil and embossing paste tinted with Pumice Stone Distress Ink to make a stone textured background for the Deck the Halls door. I then cut out the stone panel with Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics. I tucked the scalloped Reverse Confetti Love Note panel cut from Reverse Confetti Baby Blue Cardstock under the tag. I tied the tag with some Hemp cord and added a sprinkling of Sparkly Navy Blue YNS Gumdrops.  

 photo YNS76E_edited-RS6_zpskdnfhw5j.jpg
I stamped the poinsettia and holly and berries stamp from the Deck the Halls Stamp set randomly on the Brick Cardstock with embossing ink and embossed the images with clear embossing powder. I coloured up the door, steps and cute little animals from the Deck the Halls Stamp set with my Copics cut them out with the coordinating Deck the Halls Die set. I popped up the images on the embossed stone tag. I stamped a sentiment from the set on Kraft cardstock cut with the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics

 photo YNS76F_edited-RS7_zpshonmcrmv.jpg

I finished off the inside of the card too....I adore the little fox from this set...he's my favourite and I coloured a second image for the inside of the card. I used the Reverse Confetti Love Note Confetti Cuts cut from Reverse Confetti Navy Cardstock and cut the Reverse Confetti Brick Cardstock with the Class Act Confetti Cuts. I clear embossed the Brick panel again and stamped another sentiment from the Deck the Halls Stamp set.  

Thanks SO much for stopping by and having a little look at my card for the Your Next Stamp Sketch and Colour Challenge # 76 with the Deck the Halls Stamp set
