Countdown to Confetti - Be a Barista

Super busy day on my blog...click HERE for my Blogaversary post.

Click HERE for my first Artful Delight Card Kit post.





I'm super thrilled to be a part of Reverse Confetti's November release...a Countdown to Confetti!  Be sure to stop by the Reverse Confetti blog to see everyone who is featuring today's awesome set...Be a Barista...by a super NEW Reverse Confetti Illustrator....along with the super awesome Reverse Confetti Design Team, there are 'Fetti Fave's (that's me!), SFYTT Winners and 'Fetti Friends!

In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, Reverse Confetti is also running a Facebook promotion.  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to REVERSE CONFETTI FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this red and white striped graphic.


Yesterday I was absent from the festivities due to the lack of stamps but USPS finally delivered them yesterday so I spent all last night stamping up a storm!

Today we're featuring Be a Barista....oh yes, this set is calling my name!  I combined it with November's Sketch for You to Try (SFYTT):


I managed to incorporate a star that I die cut from yes, a Starbucks coffee sleeve.  There is an antique doily and some cork!  Oh my java...don't you love that coffee cup and the the coffee swirls?  GENIUS!!!!!  

The swirls are separate from the coffee cup and yes, there are a couple choices to pick from!

Don't you love the font on the sentiment?!!!!


Here's the SFYTT that inspired my card!


paper:  Studio Calico
stamps:  Reverse Confetti Be a Barista
ink:  memento rich cocoa
other:  Timeless Twine Cherry Red, cork, Starbucks coffee sleeve

I have a bit of catch up to do since I missed out on the fun yesterday!  Here's a tall skinny card that incorporates all the sets from yesterday, along with today's Be a Barista:


The sentiments are from the set, bring on the merry.  I swiped some color from Derwent pencils onto the Merry.  I followed them up with my Aqua Painter.  I stamped the coffee mug in white and did the coffee swirl/foam in Memento Rich Cocoa.

Here's the interior of the card:


cardstock:  PTI
stamps:  Reverse Confetti Be a Barista, Bring on the Merry, So Stripey, Tinsel 'n Trim
ink:  Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo/Rich Cocoa, WPlus9 white
other: Derwent pencils, cork, kraft bags, Basic Grey button, embroidery thread, misc kraft tag

I stamped the the kraft bag with white ink using the so stripey set.   The Ho. Ho. Ho. is from the tinsel 'n trim set...looks great on the cork, eh?

Of course I popped a starbucks card into the kraft bag!









Reverse Confetti has a $15 gift certificate up for grabs!  All you have to do for a chance to win by leaving comments on each sneak peek stop!  You have until November 7th at noon CST and winner will be announced at 5 pm that same day!

Enjoy the peeks!
