Reverse Confetti December Blog Hop and Exclusive Release!

Sunday, December 8, 2019


Welcome to Reverse Confetti's December Blog Hop!  The Design Team and and our special 'Fetti Friends are sharing lots of inspiration using an EXCLUSIVE RELEASE stamp/die set!!   C'mon and hop along...




 
My card features the NEW Snowflakes stamp set and coordinating dies!  I began layering Royal Purple cardstock onto a Cloud White card base then created a watercolor background with distress oxide inks.

For the snowflakes, I used Iced Aqua and Royal Purple ink pads; the top/left snowflake was silver embossed as was the sentiment.   To finish, I 'hung' the snowflakes using a light aqua twine and added light aqua pearls to the centers.


Join the hop and check out what the DT is sharing today featuring this exclusive release!

Saturday Coffee Cafe - Cozy Christmas

Saturday, December 7, 2019


Welcome to the Saturday Coffee Cafe -  I'm so glad you stopped in today!  Grab a cup of brew (or cocoa) and get cozy while you see what I'm serving up today...


We put up our Christmas tree and I love to just sit on the couch with a cup of brew and look at it!  If it were up to me, I'd leave it up all year long, but my family says it wouldn't be as special as when we first put it up for Christmas.  Sigh -- they may be right.


 For my card, I first adhered a plaid paper and dark brown cardstock onto the card base.  Then came the fun part...stamping, diecutting and coloring these adorable images from My Favorite Things Merry Christmoose! This set recently came out of the MFT vault and I was thrilled...it's one of my favorites!  It really makes me feel warm all over ;)

Pink & Main and Therm-O-Web Collaboration!

Wednesday, December 4, 2019


 Pink & Main is thrilled to be collaborating with Therm O Web!!  To celebrate, we have TWO prizes to be won! Scroll down to the end to see how!



Below are two cards I created using both Pink & Main and Therm O Web products together...


For my first card, I used the Gina K Petals & Wings Stencil with Gina K Gold Glitz Glitter Gel.  I first sprayed the stencil with Pixi Spray which keeps the stencil flat and in place when applying the gel -- it's a game-changer!  The Glitter Gel is soooo sparkly and goes on so easy (I had to get several colors!)


 The flowers are Pink & Main Mum Dies which I thought went very well with the stencil leaves.  The sentiments are from Pink & Main's Just Because sentiment set!


For my next card, I cut the aqua and white cardstock using dies from the Stitched Rectangle Set 1 Dies.  I then used the Gina K Crazy Daisy stencil and Gina K White Glitz Glitter Gel for the background.  I cut the snowflakes from three different shades of blue using the smaller of the Bold Snowflake Dies.  To finish, I used Silver Glossy Dots for the snowflake centers and added the sentiment from Just Because sentiment set.


 Here is what you’ll need to do, like BOTH Therm O Web AND Pink & Main Instagram page and Subscribe to our YouTube Channels.

Warm Hugs

Tuesday, December 3, 2019

During the holidays, I'm always looking for quick treat gifts for friends, co-workers, neighbors and others.  This sweet hot cocoa pocket card is very simple to make.  Taking an A2 card base of CLOUD WHITE cardstock (with fold on the left), I made an angle cart on the front then cut a pattern paper from the WINTER WONDERLAND paper pad slightly smaller to layer.  On the inside, I layered a piece of ROYAL PURPLE cardstock.  Then, I adhered the card together at the bottom and right side. 

The adorable bear is from the BIG BEAR stamp set which I copic colored.  I cut ROYAL PURPLE and silver glitter cardstock using the WARM HUGS Confetti Cuts and offset them.  Adding a packet of hot cocoa and a candy cane put the finishing touches to this tasty treat!

Divinity Designs December Release is Here!

Sunday, December 1, 2019


December is here...and so is Divinity Designs newest release!  If you're like me, you are still working (or maybe just started) creating holiday cards and gifts.  Divinity Designs December release has you covered!


For my first card, I created a distressed oxide sky and then cut white cardstock using Cloud Border Dies for the snowy ground.  I love the new, festive Christmas Lights dies and the True Lights sentiment set works perfectly with these dies.  I created the little scene using Trees & Deer Dies.


My next card features the new Book Fold Card with Layers!  I really like this new card die design which works great for a vertical or horizontal card.


On the outside, I used papers from the Rustic Christmas paper pad, Scalloped Rectangles, Scalloped Circles and Merry Christmas Cap dies.  On the inside, I used the new Home for Christmas stamp/die duo and Good Tidings sentiment.


 Great news!  Divinity Designs sale is still going on...but hurry as today is the last day!
