Color Throwdown #411 - Forest Friends

It's been pretty quiet on the blog lately, so I'm happy to be back with this week's Color Throwdown Challenge. We've got a vibrant color palette for you this week - shades of purple, orange and yellow, which I've used to color up a cute little scene using the newly released Forest Friends. This set is part of the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Celebration, designed by Reverse Confetti exclusively for Simon Says Stamp.

I stamped, clear embossed the images from Forest Friends on Reverse Confetti's Cloud White Cardstock (yes, you can watercolor on it!) and then watercolored them with Zig markers, moving the color around just a bit with an aquash brush. I then arranged my woodland scene centered around one of the All Framed Up Confetti Cuts with a sentiment stamped inside the frame. I just adore these images and hope you are enjoying them as much as me!

Check out the links below for more inspiration, and come out and play along this week. Remember to use keyword: CTD411 if you upload to a public gallery and #ctd411 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. I'm also linking up my card for this week's CAS(E) this sketch: 190 and CASology cue card | Frame.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Color Throwdown #410

Hi all, and welcome to this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! This week's palette is soft shades of peach, blue and grey. I'm usually a neutral type of gal with a punch of color, so this was a bit of a challenge for me, but I'm pleased with the results using Reverse Confetti's Buds 'N Blooms. I especially love the larger grey leaf with the blue skeleton stamped on top. 

I used the same blue ink on the smaller stitched leaf and two shades of peach on the flower buds. Keeping things soft and subtle, I used the same grey ink on the mr. & mrs. sentiment from Bitty Banners and vellum foliage cut from Buds 'N Blooms Confetti Cuts

September SFYTT - Buds 'N Blooms

I have to tell you that Blooms 'N Buds really intimidated the point that I waited to use it until now on my September Sketch For You To Try design. I just couldn't decide on color combinations, and then I saw all the other gals making these uber-fantastic cards and projects with it which gave me total stage fright, so I got on Pinterest, searched for unusual Fall color combos and came up with this. Sorry for the novel, but I just want to make the point that you shouldn't let fear get in your way - even in the silliest of situations!

Once I stamped and die cut my Buds 'N Blooms, I knew I wanted them to really pop against the rest of the sketch layers, so I kept the rest of the layers uniform in white and vellum. I did sneak in a bit of texture though with a Lacy Scallop Frame Confetti Cuts and Leaves Cover Panel Confetti Cuts - they were just meant for each other!
I sure hope you'll get a chance to play along with this month's SFYTT challenge.Visit the Reverse Confetti blog for all the challenge details - did you know you can win a gift certificate to RC and become the next 'Fetti Fave? What are you waiting for - go get sketchy!

SugarPea Sweet 2 Repeat Hop

It’s time again for the SugarPea Designs Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop featuring more inspiration from the August Product Release!
 I was inspired by the ever so trendy modern farmhouse look when making this card. A Lovely Leaves sentiment combined with the SugarCuts - Farmscape die was the perfect combination. I did a bit of surgery to my die cut scene, omitting the tractor portion to keep things peacefully simple. There's nothing like being on the farm this time of year, watching the colors change and farmers working hard to harvest their bumper crops.
Would you like to WIN a $20 gift certificate to spend on some SugarPea Designs of your own?  Please visit with each of the design team members listed below and leave a comment for your chance to win!

STAMPtember Feature - Reverse Confetti

Hello, crafty friends! I'm so happy that you've stopped by today because I've got a special treat for you (and it's not even Halloween yet). I'm beyond thrilled to be sharing an adorable new Reverse Confetti stamp set exclusive for the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember celebration called Forest Friends

I stamped the sweet owl and mushroom image and colored it with Zig markers. I'm just tickled that I can watercolor on Reverse Confetti's new Cloud White Cardstock.

After stamping one of the Forest Friends sentiments above my scene, I framed it with the cross-stitched All Framed Up Confetti Cuts.
Here's a peek at the entire Forest Friends stamp set. Adorable, right?! Be sure to stop by the Simon Says Blog for STAMPtember fun all month long!

Reverse Confetti September Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the blog hop for the Reverse Confetti September release which is NOW available! If you're still undecided or looking for more ideas to stash away for your new purchases, check out the complete blog hop lineup listed below! I love Reverse Confetti new releases, and this one is especially one to love with the addition of cardstock, stencils, inks and patterned paper to the store!

 My final card for the September release week features a beautiful stand alone die called Grateful Thankful Blessed. I just love those swirlies above and below the stack of words. I combined my die cut sentiment with papers from the Fright Night 6x6 pad, a bit of vellum and black cardstock that I trimmed with the pinking Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts die. I love the variety of papers in Fright Night, and you will too, so put it in your cart immediately before its gone!

Thank you so much for stopping by during Countdown to Confetti! I loved hearing what you thought of the new products, especially the four new product lines! I can't wait to see what you decided you couldn't live without this release - happy shopping and crafting!

Countdown to Confetti - Treat Tube Topper

Boo-zing through the final day of Countdown to Confetti with Reverse Confetti with a fun adult Halloween treat idea using a fun new product and coordinating die - Treat Tube and Treat Tube Topper Confetti Cuts.  The Treat Tube Topper die will be sold in a bundle with 6 of the clear tubes. Additional tubes may be purchased separately.

I drew from the colors of this week's Color Throwdown Challenge. See the CTD team links below for more inspiration!

Here's a side view with the adult treat tucked neatly inside. I used Iced Aqua cardstock for the topper and then added a layer of Fright Night 6x6 patterned paper on the top of it.

I had fun creating a layered tag using more of the September release products, including Treat Yo' Self, Web Tag Layer Confetti Cuts and Halloween Bits Confetti Cuts. The tag is tied to the treat topper with Charcoal twine.

I also added an insert to the tube that I stamped with a sentiment from Treat Yo' Self on the front...

...and back. I used the Lotsa Dots Stencil to add dry embossed detail to each insert as well.

Cheers to the September Release at Reverse Confetti!

Be sure to leave comments for your chance to win one of these Reverse Confetti gift certificates being given away. Also, check in to see what Jen's been working on along with the rest of the Confetti Crew and 'Fetti Friend, Ruby Naz. I'll see you here in the morning for the new release blog hop!
