Reverse Confetti World Gratitude Day Blog Hop!


Fall is finally upon us and REVERSE CONFETTI is celebrating the
change of seasons along with a little known holiday.  Did you know that today is World Gratitude
Day?  World
Gratitude Day is your opportunity to show your gratitude and
appreciation for anything or anyone in your life with meaningful actions.  To get you in the spirit of gratitude, the
CONFETTI CREW has put together some fabulous creations with a “fall-ish flair” and a special
“Gratitude Blog Hop”.


The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog and I'm the next stop! 
We hope you take a few minutes to enjoy what we’ve put together.  We want the gratitude to be contagious enough
to inspire you to get creative and make something for someone you appreciate!


I have been really inspired by color combos including GOLD lately, and thought this was a really fun autumn color combination!


Gold and purple, *love*! Here's the picture that inspired me!


The stamps I used are from one of RC's newest releases, Forever Fall!


I did a lot of gold embossing. I love how it looks, especially on Kraft! Those tiny hearts are from Arrows n' Elements and the larger ones are from Forever Fall.


I also gold embossed the fabulous wood grain border stamp from Forever Fall. Again, *love*! Give it a try, I guarantee you'll love adding some gold embossing to your cards:)

We truly appreciate you hopping
along with us.  In fact, to show our
appreciation, we are giving away a $15 gift certificate to REVERSE CONFETTI to one lucky
hopper!  Just leave a comment at each stop along the way to be entered to win!  You have until Monday, September 23rd
at noon CST.  Jen will announce the
winner on the Time for a Card Tuesday post on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 24th.  We want to thank you for welcoming REVERSE
CONFETTI as your new favorite stamp company!
