Reverse Confetti December Blog Hop

 Hello and welcome to the Reverse Confetti Release Day! I'm super excited about today and I hope you are too. We have shared projects all week and have one more day of fun for you with the December Release Blog Hop. Start over on Jen's Blog. You can shop NOW, but you may want to wait to see what the DT has to share today. 



I just love these mice from Mouse Mail. I colored up the boy image and added some balloons from Monkey Business to turn him into a birthday mouse. RC makes it easy to mix and match it's stamp sets. I cut the Bar Tag Layer with Cloud White card stock and then layered the fun polka dotted paper from Warm Hearts. It was easy to do with the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cut


Here is a closer look at the sweet mouse. I tied on some Striped Charcoal twine


Did you know the You're So sentiment set and matching You're So Confetti Cuts (yes!!! more word dies!! they are a must have) were created to work perfectly with the Bar Tag Layer die? They were and it was so easy to make this sweet birthday greeting. I stamped the word in Navy Premium Dye ink and cut the word with black card stock. I then added some sparkle and shimmer to the die cut word with my Wink of Stella pen (I also added this to my balloons). The card base is a piece of Warm Hearts paper, layered with Baby Blue card stock and then all mounted onto a Cloud White top folding A2 card base. 


There is so much more to see. Don't miss the blog hop.

I stamped the Figure of Speech stamps in Iced Aqua, RC Aqua and Brick and then mounted them on a kraft Woodgrain Confetti Cut. I Used some Very Merry paper and RC Aqua pinking edges were added with the ease of Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts. It's all mounted on a Cloud White Card stock

Color Throwdown 422-Sparkle Trees




Hi, everyone! It's time for a new challenge! Barbara is here with your colors for this week. Remember, we're using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown: Navy, hot pink, turquoise, and orange, you'll be good...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun! And, feel free to incorporate any other neutrals you need in your design, as well. 

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD422, and please use #ctd422 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog--all of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so check 'em out to be sure. Importantly, though, no digital designs--only digital images that are printed off and colored with be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up. 



I was dying to use the darling tree from the RC set, Bearing Gifts. I stamped three of them in the challenge colors. I used RC premium dye inks in Navy, Iced Aqua, and Tangerine. I cut them out with the coordinating dies, Bearing Gifts Confetti Cuts and then topped them each with sequins. In the back ground I added the hot pink color with a water color wash. I then stamped one of my favorite sentiments ever from Tinsel 'n Trim. I tied on some solid navy twine to finish the card. 


Click the links above each designer photo for even more inspiration from our talented team to get you started. I cannot wait to see what you all create with this week's colors!

We have two fabulous guests with us this month.

Countdown to Confetti Day 2

So excited!! It's that time again, it's a new month and a brand new release!! The Reverse Confetti December Release Countdown to Confetti has begun! So much cuteness packed in to the next four days, you won't want to miss it. Stamps and Confetti Cuts fill the list this month, if you were looking forward to new colors and papers, don't fret....they will be back in January. All the Details are on the RC Blog, be sure to start over there.



Want to win a prize??  Leave comments on the DT blogs AND the RC Facebook page for a chance to win one of two prizes...free shopping from RC! Woohoo!

You'll want to start on the Reverse Confetti Blog so you get to see all the release details, Jen's amazing projects AND the line up from the Confetti Crew. 

I am totally crushin' on today's products. The You’re So and Outlined stamp sets are too good to pass up. I'll start today with the Outlined set. There are so many options for this one.....use just the outline, color the outline in, stamp just the solid words, or layer the two together like I did here. I was worried it would be hard to get the outline letters right over top of the solid matching words....NOPE! Easy peasy and I did the first time, each time I stamped with this set. Love it, and you will too. 



I use the awesome interactive, Peekaboo Tag Layer and stamped the outlines sentiment in Iced Aqua and then the matching outline in Black ink from my stash. I started the opening of the tag for my photos, but I love that this will be an interactive card for the recipient. yay! so fun! I also added some festive Tangerine Stars from Seeing Stars. I tied on some Charcoal Striped twine and added a Hang Ups, too to the top of tag in Iced Aqua. I mounted the fun birthday tag over the Big Stripes Cover Panel in RC Aqua card stock. 



The extra fun thing about this Peekaboo Tag Layer is that you can do up the inside. I stamped the cupcakes from  Lift Me Up and added the word celebrate in Iced Aqua. Love this. Here is a picture of the inside. 



For my next card today, I couldn't help myself and use three of the word dies from You're So Confetti Cuts. I love my word dies! I added some splatter on watercolor card stock with the RC Aqua, Lime Green, and Avocado inks. I then cut two layers each of the You're So Confetti Cuts word dies in the same color card stocks. 


I cut a Cloud White banner from Greetings Frame Confetti Cuts and then stamped a greetings from You're So in black ink. I love how the stamped sentiment coordinate with the word dies. It's so fantastic! I also used a strip of the triangle pattern from Very Merry....yes, it's not just for the holidays!...and mounted it all on a top folding A2 RC Aqua card base. Here is a close up of the details. 




How about a closer look at the products I used. 












That's it from me today. Be sure to check back tomorrow for more Countdown to Confetti. See you then.
