Freshly Made Sketches #265

Happy Thursday, all! I couldn't resist this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge and put my stash of Confetti Cuts 'extras' to work on this week's sketch.

I started with two felt trees from Merry Christmoose, added a whimsy Wreaths Confetti Cuts and topped it with a woodgrain peace from Winter Words Confetti Cuts. I don't know what I'll do when I run out of my beloved wood veneer stars, they're just the perfect complement to the trees and woodgrain sentiment.

I hope you get a chance to play along with FMS #265. Why not challenge yourself to dig into your stash and see what you come up with? Thanks for stopping by to see me, enjoy your day!

Color Throwdown 421 - This Could Be Vodka


I mean, anyone with a purple-tipped (tipsy) tail just might be bumping up their hot beverage.

It is the holidays after all.

I bought this adorably funny set from The Cat's Pajamas as an early stocking stuffer gift to ME because I just 'needed' it, and then combined it with this week's Color Throwdown Challenge colors - green, light blue, purple and black. LOVE this combo.
Keep in mind that the colors are generic and it's fine if you want to add in other neutrals, and use the keyword CTD421 on public galleries and #ctd421 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites when uploading your projects, because we love to see what you're doing!

The Color Throwdown Team is on hand with lots of inspiration, including our November Guest Designer and this week's Star Stamper:

Crazy for Chritmas - Decor & More

Welcome to the final day of Reverse Confetti's three day event - Crazy for Christmas. Today's feature is all about home decor. I just happened to have another small embroidery hoop in my stash, and this is what I came up with using the Jingle All The Way Confetti Cuts.

Because the letters are thin, I used iron-on interfacing on the back of the charcoal felt before running it through my Big Shot with the Jingle All The Way Confetti Cuts die. I then ironed it onto a piece of fuchsia felt and secured it within the double hoop configuration. 

My final step was to embellish with a pair of jingle bells secured with natural twine and leaf stick pins for added color and just plain fun. 

Look no further - these lovely ladies have even more Crazy for Christmas - Decor & More ideas and inspiration for you. Thanks for stopping by today!

Color Throwdown #419

It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge.This week's colors can be seen in the graphic above, and  as always are generic, so it's OK to use whatever shade of the colors that works for you, or that you have in your stash. We just want you to come out and play along with us. And, when you do, please use keyword CTD419 in public galleries and #ctd419 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites so we can see what you've made!

I've used Reverse Confetti's Jingle All The Way Confetti Cuts as the focal image of my card front, embellished with Lime Green Holly Confetti Cuts leaves and sparkly orange enamel dots for the berries. What do you think - is it working for a Christmas card? It sure is warm and perhaps a bit tropical, yes?

Ok, it's your turn! The Color Throwdown Team is on hand with lots of inspiration, including our November Guest Designer and this week's Star Stamper:

Crazy for Christmas - Treat Tubes

It's day 1 of Reverse Confetti's Crazy for Christmas three day event highlighting fun ways to dive into Christmas prep with tons of fun and inspiration provided by the Reverse Confetti design team.  Today's theme is Treat Tubes, and I've got a coffee lover's idea to share with you, so let's get started!

I picked up this darling reindeer coffee mug for $2 at Family Dollar last week along with a package of Pirouline coffee wafer sticks for $1 and knew (hoped) they'd fit perfectly in the Treat Tubes available at Reverse Confetti.  

Here's a side view of the Treat Tube, and yes, they DID fit perfectly! I cut the Treat Tube Topper Confetti Cuts from Navy cardstock and then again in the snowflake paper from Very Merry.

I used the reindeer image from Jolly Holiday and colored him with Zig markers in colors that matched the coffee mug. I then layered him on the new Holly Jolly Tag Layer Confetti Cuts that I die cut from the Warm Heart paper pad and embellished with the largest Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts snowflake in Navy cardstock.

I decided that I wanted to add a gift card to my Treat Tube ensemble, so I cut the Gift Card Holder Tag Confetti Cuts twice from Lime Green cardstock and placed them back to back. Here's a look at the back of the tag with another Navy snowflake and sentiment from Jolly Holiday stamped in Navy ink on a double fishtail banner from Tag Me Confetti Cuts . I 'held' all of the tags together with Hang Ups, Too Confetti Cuts in Iced Aqua

Time to hop on over to Reverse Confetti for today's lineup of participating designers. I can't wait to see what they've done with the Treat Tubes! Thank you for stopping today.
