Reverse Confetti December Blog Hop!


12.8.13 #2

It’s the 8th of the month –Blog Hop time from REVERSE CONFETTI!  Last month’s release was full of holiday magic as well as some gorgeous everyday sentiments.  As we look forward to the holidays, it’s now time to start thinking of those small gifts, tags, treats, or just sweet notes of encouragement to spread the “Merry” to our friends, family and coworkers.  The Confetti Crew and a few other pals have designed some great cards and projects to give you just the creative spark you’ll need to make some of your very own RC magic happen!
 
 
 
The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Daniela Dobson's blog. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all of Reverse Confetti’s amazing stamp sets!  Don't forget to leave a comment along the way for a chance to win a $15 Reverse Confetti GC!!

I love to use my dies to create cards......Here I've used the Sweet Treat Tent die to make a card.  I simply laid my folded cardstock over the die making sure not to extend it over the side of the fold and die cut.  I then trimmed the flaps of the die off and stamped my card with stripes from So Stripey.    I stamped and cut several of the arrows from Arrows 'n Elements  and added those with foam adhesive.  I used 2 different sentiment stamps (Bring on the Merry and Dream in Color) and selectively inked my sentiments exactly the way I wanted it to read!  I LOVE LOVE this about Reverse Confetti's KEY Words collection!!!
