November 2014 Collection

I created this fun card and matching envelope with the new Pinecone Christmas set!


I stamped the branch, leaves, and pine cones from Pinecone Christmas randomly on the 4x4 card base in brown and green inks from Impress (Fresh Inks). I cut out the Classy Label from white cardstock and stamped the coordinating frame from Unto Us in Steel Blue ink (also from Impress). The sentiment is from Pinecone Christmas and the snowflakes are from Glad Tidings, cut out with the Snowflake Tidings die set

Weary WorldStarry Stable Die Set
 
Psalm 119:105 Plain Jane

Here's my card using Weary World and the Starry Stable die set 


On a 3x3 inch square of Tim Holtz watercolor paper, I sponged a few blue Distress Inks to create the night sky. Next, using the Starry Stable dies, I cut out the stable and the smallest star. I colored the images with my Tombow markers and then adhered the small star into the big one at the top of the stable. I attached this piece to the 3x3 sponged background with dimensionals and created some snow fall and the snow drifts with white dimensional effects. 


I have a few piece of this polka dot vellum from Michaels that I've had forEVER and decided to finally use some! It looks a bit like snow to me, so I thought it worked! I finished the card off with a couple stamped sentiments and the silver cord.

Pinecone Christmas

Holiday Sequin Mix


I created this fun card using papers from a few different collections, and don't know what they are cause they're all scraps, haha! Sorry! More than likely it's MMM or Simple Stories! I stamped the largest poinsettia image and clear embossed it on the green striped panel. I stamped a sentiment on a piece of cardstock in brown ink, and then attached a poinsettia I cut out of a piece of book paper using the new Poinsettia Pinecones dies. We have new sequins this month too, the Holiday Sequin Mix. If you have any Verve sequins, you know these are sparkley beyond all imagining! So gorgeous! I took three red sequins and glued them to the center of the poinsettia. 


The "holiday favorites" piece you see is just a pice of the patterned paper I cut out:)

Here's my SUPER clean and simple card!


I have a piece of silver glitter washi tape on the card base and wrapped some red and white twine around the front. I stamped the candle trip and colored in with Copics, and then did a little outlining with my Crystal Ice Stickles. Super simple card, but I wanted this beautiful image to take the stage!

25 Days of Christmas Tags


Hey there! Tracey McNeely is hosting her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again on her blog this year for the 4th year! Tracey has invited the Confetti Crew members to join in as her guests! We were asked to make a Christmas Tag using some awesome Reverse

We just had an AMAZING stamp release at Reverse Confetti so you may recognize some of the new goodies on my tag/bag! The red tag base was created with the Tag Me Too die. The white tag is the largest in the Tag Me dies. I took the largest snowflake from Let it Snow and cut a snowflake out of the middle of the white tag. Then I cut another, smaller, snowflake out of silver foil cardstock and nested it in the negative of the larger snowflake. The flag that "Merry" is stamped on is also from Tag Me. The smaller silver tag peeking out from behind the white tag is the smallest tag from Tag Me. The sentiments are from Bring on the Merry from last Christmas. I cut a few garlands from silver foil cardstock using the new Circle Garland confetti cuts.


There are so many fabulous prizes to be won, just head over to Tracey's blog, In My Creative Opinion, to find out how you can have a chance to win! Also make sure that you also leave a comment here for an extra chance to win, thanks for stopping by!!

Reverse Confetti November Sketch for You to Try

Hi there! Happy Veteran's day to all you Vets out there!! Thank you all for your service:)


*** I'm here today with a card for this month's Reverse Confetti SFYTT ***



I had this scrap paper sitting on my desk for the longest time. I was testing out some fun new enamel embossing powder but never did anything with the piece. So I saw it and finally decided to put it to good use! The sentiment is from Seasonal Sentiments and the holly leaves and berries are from the North Pole Wishes dies. The flag the sentiment is stamped on is the largest tag from Tag Me, with the top of the tag cut off. 



Make sure to head on over the the Reverse Confetti Blog for a list of the other girls playing along today, and for more details on this month's sketch challenge! Also, if you didn't know, we just had an amazing stamp release! Check out all the new goodies HERE! 

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
