Hot Cocoa Package - Reverse Confetti Wednesday in the Works

Hello! I have a new edition of Wednesday in the Works on the Reverse Confetti Blog and YouTube Channel this morning - this week I have a fun treat packaging using some of the newest release from Reverse Confetti! I used the fabulous Scallop Bags & Tags Creator Confetti Cuts paired up with a sentiment from Christmas Circles, and some darling images from Drink More Coffee (but...made my coffee cup a cup of hot cocoa this time!)


Thanks so much for stopping by - have a great day!

Making a List - Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit

Good morning! I'm popping in to share another card created with the BRAND NEW December Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Holiday Cheer! This is such a fun and happy holiday theme kit - just like the name suggests! An adorable large stamp seta super fun candy cane die (with a bonus bow die too!), a NEW Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink pad - and lots of envelopes, tags, and cardstock as well! Here's is today's card with the kit:


For this card I started of by stamping that ADORABLE Santa on my white card panel, and then stamped and fussy cut it out from masking paper and applied that over the top. I also stamped and heat embossed several of the snowflakes from the Christmas Cheer stamp set around the background. Then, I blended lots of that lovely Festive Berries Distress Oxide Ink over the background. I added some water splatters, white paint splatters, and gold splatters with my Starry Colors Palette - then pulled the mask off. Once that all dried, I wiped the extra ink off the heat embossed snowflakes, stamped my sentiment, and die cut the panel with Stitched Rectangles. I matted it in a bit of white cardstock, then attached to a cardbase created from the Lipstick Red Cardstock.


Here is a closer look at the entire kit contents - you can find all the details HERE:


I love combining something with an unexpected color combo. While red easily fits the Christmas and Santa theme, using it as the background for the snowy sky is a little unique and different!

Christmas Cheer - Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit

Hello! I'm popping in to share my first card created with the BRAND NEW December Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Holiday Cheer! This is such a fun and happy holiday theme kit - just like the name suggests! An adorable large stamp set, a super fun candy cane die (with a bonus bow die too!), a NEW Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink pad - and lots of envelopes, tags, and cardstock as well! Here is my first card to share with this kit:


I started off by creating a simple ink blended background with the fabulous new Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink. I also smeared the ink pad on a clear block, added a bit of water, and added some splatters with the same color - and a few white paint splatters for good measure! I then die cut the new Candy Canes Die from white cardstock, and the included bow from green cardstock, assembled them together, and attached with foam adhesive behind the bow to my cardbase. Finished off by stamping my sentiment from the adorable Christmas Cheer stamp set!

Caroling Critters - Pretty Pink Posh New Release

Good morning! I'm stopping by today with another card using some more of the newest Pretty Pink Posh release! I totally adore this fun release - and had tons of fun putting this sweet little card together!


I used the new Caroling Critters stamp set, and colored up the cute bunch with my Copic markers, then just fussy cut it out. There aren't coordinating dies for this one, but it is super easy to cut out, and sometimes I find fussy cutting kind of relaxing!


I did some ink blending on my background with Distress Oxides, masking off the bottom, then die cut several of the new Pine Sprigs (adding some ink blending on them) and adding some gold splatters with my Starry Colors Palette, and some white paint splatters before removing the mask. I then added a die cut Picket Fence (and older release - but so fun!) - and attached my Caroling Critters with foam adhesive. Finished off with a stamped sentiment in the bottom corner, and a few of the jewels from the new Holiday Jewels Mix (leaving out the red ones).

Peace Love and Joy - Winnie and Walter Rerun Challenge

Good morning! Today is the start of a new Rerun Feature and Challenge at Winnie and Walter - this month our featured set is In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals - a lovely floral holiday set!

I used this beautiful set to create a stamped background - such a fun thing to do when you can't choose which images you want to use!


I started off by stamping my sentiment in the center of my cardstock panel. Then I built my stamped background using a variety of Catherine Pooler inks that are carried in the Winnie and Walter Store. 


Then, I decided it needed some depth and interest, so I did some die-cutting and inlaying using Essentials: Audrey Cutaways and Essentials: Lana Cutaways - adding some silver glitter cardstock as one of the layers. I tied some sheer white ribbon around in a bow, then mounted on a nice bright green cardbase to complete the card. Except for the sheer ribbon, this is a completely flat card - perfect for mailing! And this sheer ribbon compresses fairly well, so it would still travel through the mail fairly well!
