Reverse Confetti: Good cheer headed your way!



Hello and Happy Saturday!  I'm spending the day with a bunch of friends, going shopping and then out to dinner to celebrate a birthday!  What are your plans for today?

I have a card to share with you!  I'm trying to make a couple holiday cards a month so that this November things won't be so crazy chaotic.  I'm hoping to send out my holiday cards during the Thanksgiving weekend.  A tradition I use to do and need to get back to so that I can enjoy my December!

The Reverse Confetti Bearing Gifts stamps + coordinating confetti cuts are so cute, eh?!  They could easily work for a wintertime card too.  I watercolored and colored the images with Zig Clean Color Markers. 


The card base is RC Aqua and I used a sheet from the Very Merry 6x6 Paper Pad.







My card was inspired by Kimberly's Muse:  ChristmasVisions.


Isn't her card fun?!  Love that guy!  I stayed with the overall color palette and design.

  3. What an adorably sweet card Amy! I love the pp you used and the great dimension you added by fussy cutting the bear and popping him up off of the card!

  4. Super adorable, Amy!! Love the coloring you did and the patterned papers you used. So full of cheer - perfect for this year's batch of cards. I really should get started on my Christmas cards as well, but just can't get motivated to create. I did make a batch of New Year's cards that are still sitting on my desk waiting to be mailed. Hope you have a great day as it sounds like a fun one lined up! I hope to get some crafting done as it's a three day weekend.

  10. Such a great card! I love those soft colors, they really fit this winter scene. So you too are determined to regularly create Christmas cards this year. I make this resolution each year but as soon as the days get warmer I forget about it. ;o) Let's hope we'll stay true to us this year. :o)

  13. What a fun take on Kimberly's card. I hardly ever use PPs these days.
    I did quite well on getting my Christmas cards ready in time last year, but DH told me he would like me to finish them by November 1st this year, so he doesn't need to stress out putting them in envelopes and getting them to the post office lol. He's very happy that I'm off to a good start in reaching this goal.
