Reverse Confetti - Coffee

I can't believe that Halloween is on Monday!  Last year I bought 2 bags of chocolate from Costco and only had a handful of kids stop by.  It was raining sideways that evening.  I sent each of my college kids about 6 lbs of chocolate..haha.  If you have young children, what do you do?  The traditional to a specific mall?  Not sure how much we'll buy this year...gotta hide it from a certain someone or else he'll break into them.  I made this especially for Darin...cracks me up.

I love the Reverse Confetti Fright Night paper pad!  So many fun colors and patterns.  Do you spy the bat paper on my card?

I teamed it up with the Lovey Word Coordinates

I used the Stamped Note confetti cuts as a tag!

My card was inspired by Retrosketches:

Happy Friday Eve!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Graphic 45!

Did you hear?  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Graphic 45 have collaborated this week!  I'm so excited to be part of this blog hop. My project features a Graphic 45 Mixed Media 5x5 Box - Kraft.  

All the panels of paper have been adhered using the E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser.  I combined the Safari Adventure and Cityscapes paper collections.  I did a bit of distressing on the edges with Ranger Tea Dye Distress Ink.

Here’s the top view of my project:

I made it into a shaker box!  This can be easily used to store various tea bags.  The tea pot and the tea cup are on Thin 3D Foam Squares – Mix White.   The sequins are in-between two panels of acetate and adhered to the backside of the lid.    This is a perfect gift for any tea loving friend!  

Make sure you pop over to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog for more inspiration today and all week + a chance to win!

Hero Arts: Cheers + Bridal Blog Hop Winners!

Hello and Happy Sunday!  I have a card that uses a total of five Hero Arts stamp sets and 3 Hero Arts ink pads:

Definitely not my typical design...lotsa inky goodness on this.  The background is made from the Color Layering Grateful Leaves.  Aren't they beautiful in Ombre Autumn?  The have been layered with Cup 'O Joe ink.  I smooshed Tea Dye distress ink on an acrylic block, spritzed with water and smooshed on top of the leaves.  

The tag has the Forest and Deer Bold Prints stamped in Soft Brown Shadow ink.  The Holiday Messages and Tags  has then been layered with the Ombre Autumn.  The coffee cup from City Adventures has been stamped in Cup 'O Joe and the sleeve has been colored with coordinating copics.  The sentiments, including Cheers Messages by Lia, are stamped in Cup 'O Joe ink.  I distressed the edges, finished off the bottom with a Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Border and topped the tag off with May Arts twine.

My card was inspired by the current  Coffee Loving Cardmaker's challenge:  CASEing DT

I'm giving you a sneak peek of one of my projects on my blog but you'll have to hop over to the Concord & 9th blog to see both of them.

So, I LOVE it.  I've taken classes but oy, it takes me forever to get anything written and I should be practicing more.

Here's how the new set inspired me:

I don't like meetings, I like cake♡  I used my mini misti to help me line up (& eyeball) things.  This set is a must-have....just think of all of the possibilities!

So I have another project up on the Concord & 9th blog.  It's a home decor one that I'm pretty pleased with ---> check it OUT.

Reverse Confetti: Happy fall-idays Christmas

Click HERE for my Hero Arts post.

Today is the final day of  Reverse Confetti's Second Annual Happy Fall-idays online showcase event!  We are going to share all kinds of fun projects with you, are you ready?!

Today's focus is Christmas!  I'm a big fan of treats, who isn't?  I love to gift and receive!  The Reverse Confetti Frosted Pillow Boxes are wonderful for gift giving!

The belly band is made with Avocado cardstock and a sheet from the Very Merry 6x6 pad.  I cut the Wreath from kraft cardstock and then layered up the Vintage Ornaments.  Don't you love how the Wreath adds a delicate touch to the project?

The Fa la la la la la was stamped in Iced Aqua dye ink.  I love the layering of the Very Merry paper ornaments.  I topped them off with white enamel dots.

Wondering what's inside the pillow box?

YUM♡  Who doesn't love Trader Joe's?!
