It's Sherbet Day!

I am still giggling over this punny sentiment from Reverse Confetti's new stamp set aptly named Punny Party! The first time I read it, I didn't really "get it". It must've been the moment I actually stamped the sentiment on my card that it hit me "it's yer birthday". Still rolling!

I colored the kitty and sherbet image using both Zig markers and good ol' Crayola colored pencils for a bit of depth. This week's colors are pink, red, green and brown. Check out the inspiration piece below and then keep on scrolling for CTD team inspiration. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Reverse Confetti!

No lion - it's a party on the blog today! 

I'm hopping with the Reverse Confetti crew to honor this month's new release and the 8th birthday of Reverse Confetti. As with all parties, there are fun prizes, party favors (products) and eye candy galore, so keep on a scrollin' to take it all in.

I'm kicking off the party with a cute little lion gift box using the adorable lion image and sentiment from Punny Party. I colored the lion image with Zig Clean Color Markers and then layered it on the You Confetti Cuts and Leafy Confetti Cuts.

Reverse Confetti's Mini Clear Box(es) are the perfect size for candy treats. Gifts don't have to be over the top, just a simple little something that says I care about you. 

Next is a card using the fish from Punny Party and sentiments from Hooray which is FREE with qualifying purchase. The open letters are perfect places to add a little color to extend the theme of the card. 

I did a bit of stamp surgery to create "Birthday Fishes", replacing the 'w' in wishes with 'f' from Hooray.

Here's a peek at the new products I used today...

And now for the blog hop!
It's a fun one, so grab a comfy seat, your favorite cuppa and enjoy the party:

You Anchor Me - CTD 641

It's been some time since I've done a nautical theme and this week's Color Throwdown colors were just perfect for it! I used a couple old, old dies to create the surf board + anchor combo and then simply tore a piece of kraft paper for the beach. In the back is my favorite YOU word die from Reverse Confetti and a coordinating sentiment, also from Reverse Confetti.

How about some inspiration from the CTD Team...

Color Throwdown #638 - I'm Missing You


This week's Color Throwdown colors are yellow, green, blue and white. What a joyful combination! My card features images from Reverse Confetti's Honey Bear set. I felt like I needed a little something in the background, so I added a random strips of white along the upper right side to balance out the bottom sentiment strip. 

Isn't this inspiration piece just something?
And speaking of something, how about inspiration from our team and guest...they're something special!

Color Throwdown #637

This week's Color Throwdown is up and ready for you to be inspired and play along! Our cast of colors include green, yellow, pink and kraft. I just LOVE the inspiration photo that you can see a little further down in the post. And now for my card...

 I just love this puppy set from Reverse Confetti, Corgi Cuties. I paired it with an old, retired die set from My Favorite Things to create a subtle background.

Color Throwdown #635

I'm calling this one my visual for a socially distanced Easter, everyone staying within their pod, or in this case, mushroom. Only the ladybugs seem to be traveling but staying within CDC guidelines. Dang, looks as if they've forgotten their masks again! Thanks for taking a peek inside my creative brain, ha!

This week's colors are pink, purple, aqua and yellow, and our lovely host is the lovely Susie Moore. I do hope you'll have time to check out Susie and the team for more inspiration.

Happy Birthday, RBG!

I have been thinking and planning, searching and inspiring to make a tribute card creation of some sort to the Notorious RBG and have finally accomplished it! This week's Color Throwdown Challenge colors and RBG's heavenly birthday provided the perfect platform for my scheming to see fruition - yeah!

Reverse Confetti New Release Hop!

I'm so excited to kick off Monday with new goodies and blog hop from Reverse Confetti! I'm hopping with the RC team and guests with more inspiration for the new stamps and dies that are NOW available, so please take a look and a hop through the entire blog list detailed below.

My creation today is featuring one of the new adorable stamp sets, Enchanted Garden. I've also used a new word die simply named You, and a sentiment from the coordinating stamp set,You Coordinates. All of the adorable images are watercolored and nestle on a birch tree background which I made using Reverse Confetti's own Vertical Stripes Cover Panel. To create the birch trees, I simply swiped a medium gray Zig brush from the left and right edges of the die cut stripes in a random pattern.

I've got a second card in honor of today's hop in my signature clean and simple style, easily mass produced using any pattern papers you've on hand.

Color Throwdown #629

Happy Wednesday! 

It's time for a new set of colors for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.
We've got red, pink, black and white, just in time for handmade Valentines.

I found my way back to my favorite Numbers Plate  from The Cat's Pajamas, my favorite hearts from Home & Hearth, and a teeny sentiment from Sending & Wishing. And then, just for old time's sake, I added a snit of black gingham ribbon for just the right amount of fun.

How about a little inspiration from our team...

Color Throwdown 628

Soft hues of pink, purple, yellow and green make up this week's Color Throwdown Challenge,  featured in the timeless Valentine heart candies. Those sweet little boxes used to be such a big deal back in the day, and now I'm afraid they get lost among the plethora of candies that line the shelves for Valentine's Day. Anyone out there able to relate? 

My card once again features stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti. I also did a bit of ink blending behind the XOXO to pull in that purple mountain majesty. 

Time to click through more inspiration from the CTD team and guests. Thanks for stopping by today!

Late to the Party...

Welcome to my weekly Color Throwdown Challenge post. This is typically the only time I post on my blog and I sure do appreciate you handful of faithful followers! As you well know, I tend to stick to a puh-lain jane white background, but I am here to tell you that I have buh-roken out of the big white house with a [insert audible gasp] lightly stenciled background! Yes, you've read that correctly, my dear friends, a stenciled background. And I lurve it!

xoxo | love is in the air 

Now...I'm sorry to say that the heart stencil is no longer available from RC...but maybe you have it or something similar? I know, I know...that just goes to show how stinking late to the stenciling party I am, right?! Either way, I'm gonna be home stenciling my little heart out if you need me, using THIS fancy brush from The Cat's Pajamas

How about more inspiration from the team for this soft, sweet color combo...
