A Reverse Confetti Thank you!

I received some lovely stamps last week from Reverse Confetti - their latest release!.... so naturally I "needed" to ink them up!

Our family's Thanksgiving was celebrated at our home this year and we had a lovely bag of goodies given to us by our niece - her wonderful canning and some garlic goodies - ALL welcome and enjoyed!  Thank you's are in order - yay!

I used Roundabout (thank you), Roundabout Additions (heart circle) and Class Act for my stamping pleasure :) I used Tropical Teal ink and stamped onto Rustic Cream cardstock.....Love it!

The card was decorated using the NEW Envie Wrap Confetti Cuts and Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts along with the Class Act Confetti Cuts.

I stamped the large dots and large "sequins" all over the envelope, using Papertrey Ink Tropical Teal, Harvest Gold and Canyon Clay inks.

The Envie Wrap Confetti Cuts was die cut and wrapped around the back - where you can stamp again yay! A wonderful spot for your return address!

Hey there bloggers!  This week's Color Throwdown accentuates the perfect Hallowe'en colours - but since I am not a Hallowe'en lover....loser, I know ....I put together a pretty floral card to boost my spirits today.

I received an awesome Lattice Frame Die from WPlus9 and I had to put it to great use! - it gives such a fabulous cut - I love the look - I am pretty much swooning!

I die cut and stamped the Pretty Peonies stamp set with PTI Harvest Gold, New Leaf and Royal Velvet inks, along with Hero Arts Orange Soda ink.

I made a little bouquet of pretty peonies and adhered them to a Reverse Confetti Love Note die with a Confetti Cuts Pretty Panel Diagonal Stripe on top.

Using the Hand Lettered Hello Die I die cut two "hello"'s and layered them on top of eah other - then I attached them to the front of my creation.

After adding a few little Neat and Tangled sequins - well it turned out perfect and it is helping to brighten my day.

Make It Monday - Congrats On Your New Roost!

Hey there! I'm here with another Make it Monday creation!  This week Dawn has shown us a video on dry embossing over heat embossing.

I used the cute On the Farm stamp set and set about stamping and heat embossing the rolling hills and the beautiful sunrays.

I actually used white embossing powder for the sunrays and then watercoloured over the top with watered down Mustard Seed distress paint to create the colour.

Using the Picnic Plaid impression plate, I dry embossed over top of the stamped images.

Then I die cut and stamped the horse, pig and chicken and popped them up on top of each other - cute!  I also stamped the red barn on top of the rolling hills.

I cut two separate flags and stamped part of the sentiment on each flag - then I popped them up.

I cut two of the Journal Card Die #2 and layered them together and then adhered my front panel. - I am in LOVE with those dang junk bows that Melissa Phillips showed us in last week's video - soooo I made another to add to  my card!

Thanks for visiting today and try out this week's Make it Monday tutorial!!
