Essentials By Ellen New Release

Hello there!  I have a fun post to share with you today!  I have been in the throws of hurricane preparation for the last few days as hurricane Irma is due to pass right over top of my home later today.  It was so nice to be able to sit down and write a blog post and distract myself with something that I love!

I am so honored to have been asked to join in the latest Essentials By Ellen release from Ellen Hutson!  The cutest little Leading Lady is being introduced, and she, along with a bunch of other fabulous new goodies are available in the Ellen Hutson store today!  Read on to find out more!


Let me introduce Leading Lady - Baker Lady!  She is as cute as a button and this stamp set is perfect for holiday as well as everyday cards!  To create my card, I started off by watercoloring a background using shades of Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover distress ink onto a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper.  I added a strip of polka dot paper to the bottom of the panel to serve as the counter top for my little Baker Lady.  (Now I wish I had polka dot counters!)  I stamped and colored a bunch of images from the Leading Lady - Baker Lady stamp set, and then diecut them with the coordinating Baker Lady dies.  I paper pieced her apron and hair bow with some plaid paper, and popped everything up with foam tape.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set, and mounted the panel on a red card base.  To finish things off, I added some white gel pen accents.

Isn't she just so cute?! :)

Reverse Confetti September Blog Hop


Hello there!  It's time for another awesome Reverse Confetti release!  It's blog hop day and that means that all of the new release items that you have seen over the last few days are available in the Reverse Confetti store NOW!



Today, I have a get well card to share with you!  I used a "holiday" stamp set to create a non-holiday card.  I love stamp sets that give you such versatility and more bang for your buck!

I started off with a Premier Polar White card base, and used the new Leaf Lattice Cover Panel, cut from Premier Polar White, to add a white on white layer.  I glued it down flat with a glue pen, and splattered some gold metallic watercolor over top.  Then I stamped and colored the wreath and some of the tiny flowers from the new Fall For You stamp set, then diecut them with the coordinating Fall For You Confetti Cuts.  I popped them up on the card base with foam tape.  For a sentiment, I stamped the "get well soon" image from the previously released Sentiment Essentials stamp set, and diecut it with the coordinating Sentiment Essentials Confetti Cuts.  Then I popped that up in the center of the wreath.

Get Well Soon

If you wanted to make this a more mail friendly card, you could glue everything flat to the card base instead of adding foam tape, but you all know  how much I LOVE my foam tape. LOL!  I think that the white-on-white pattern and subtle gold splatters add so much to the card without overpowering that gorgeous wreath image.  I think this wreath is perfect for every season, and you can get so many different looks just by changing the color scheme.

Get Well Soon

Hop along with the rest of the design team for more inspiration, make your wishlist, and then go shopping! :)  Thanks for stopping by!!

Countdown to Confetti - Day 3


Hello there!  It's time for another awesome Reverse Confetti release!  Today is day 3 of the countdown to Confetti!  All of the new release items that you will see over the next few days will be available in the Reverse Confetti store and at your favorite retailers on September 8th!


I have another ensemble to share with you today!  Another adorable critter, a Christmas Bear, and a tiny clear cube make for a perfect pair!  Keep reading to find out how I created this card and coordinating treat box!

Christmas Bear Ensemble

You all know how much I love the Reverse Confetti Critters, but the new Christmas Bear might be at the top of my list this release as my favorite addition to the lineup!  He, and his cute little bird friends have my heart!  To create this card, I started off with a horizontal card base cut from Premier Polar White cardstock.  I used the new Wonky Stripe Panel Confetti Cuts, cut from Premier Polar White to add some interest to the background.  I really love tone on tone patterns.  I stamped and colored a bunch of images from the Christmas Bear stamp set and diecut them with the coordinating Christmas Bear Confetti Cuts.  I arranged them on the card base, and popped them up with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from the new Sentimental Christmas stamp set on to a speech bubble, the previously released Figure of Speech Confetti Cuts.

Christmas Bear

I used the new Mini Clear Box to create a coordinating treat box.  The box is a cube, small enough to be oh-so-cute, but big enough to hold a bunch of little goodies!  These would make adorable place favors on your  holiday table.  Four Oreo cookies fit nicely in the box.  I tied a bow with some checkered ribbon from my stash, and used the little tag from the new Clear Treat Box and Box Wrap Combo to add a tag. I cut it from Premier Polar White cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the Sentimental Christmas stamp set.  I attached it to the box with some Peapod twine.

Countdown to Confetti - Day 2


Hello there!  It's time for another awesome Reverse Confetti release!  Today is day 2 of the countdown to Confetti!  All of the new release items that you will see over the next few days will be available in the Reverse Confetti store and at your favorite retailers on September 8th!


Today, I have an ensemble to share with you that features several new products from the September release!  There is not one product in this release that I don't love! It's such a good one!!  This card and coordinating treat bag features the new Nuts About You stamp set, the Autumn Blessings stamp set, and the adorable little Bitty Window Bags!  Keep reading for  more details on how I created this little pair!

Nuts About You Ensemble

I started off by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper with my Artist Loft watercolors from Michaels.  I cut it to size, then added a strip of patterned paper from the new Every Little Bit patterned paper pad at the bottom.  I stamped and colored the large leaf pile image from the new Autumn Blessings stamp set, diecut it with the coordinating Autumn Blessings Confetti Cuts, and popped that up with foam tape.  Then I stamped and colored the cute little squirrel from the new Nuts About You stamp set, and diecut him and his little acorn with the coordinating Nuts About You Confetti Cuts.  I perched him on top of the leaf pile.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the Autumn Blessings stamp set, and framed it was a scattering of tiny leaves from the Nuts About You stamp set.  Finally, I mounted the panel on a Rust card base with foam tape.

Nuts About You Card

I created a coordinating treat bag with the cute little Bitty Window Bags, new to the Reverse Confetti store this month!  They are tiny kraft bags with a window and ziplock closure with is great because food items stay fresh longer!  I added a strip of the same patterned paper to the bottom, along with a pumpkin and acorn from the Nuts About You stamp set.  Above the window, I stamped a sentiment from the Autumn Blessings stamp set, and added bow with some Solid Mandarin twine.

Countdown to Confetti - Day 1


Hello there!  It's time for another awesome Reverse Confetti release!  Today is day 1 of the countdown to Confetti!  All of the new release items that you will see over the next few days will be available in the Reverse Confetti store and at your favorite retailers on September 8th!



Let's get started, shall we?  This month is full of awesome products, perfect for all of your fall and winter holidays!  First up, halloween!

I created this little ensemble using the new Monsterous stamp set.  These little monsters are hardly spooky, and oh-so-adorable!  And how fun is that treat box!  It's a great size to hold so many things!  Keep reading for more details on how I created this card and coordinating box.

Monsterous Ensemble

I started off with a black card base.  On top of that, I diecut the new Boo To You Circle Confetti Cuts.  This die is so cool because you can keep the dies all attached or cut them apart for a totally different look.  For this project, I cut them apart.  I diecut the pinked edge circle from a piece of patterned paper from a new paper pad called Every Little Bit.  I cut the solid circle from Tangerine cardstock, and then cut the text layer from black cardstock.  I added a strip of the same polka dot paper to the bottom of the card base, and popped the circle up in the center of the card base.  I stamped and colored one of the cute little monsters from the Monsterous stamp set, and diecut him with the coordinating Monsterous Confetti Cuts. I couldn't resist giving him some google eyes! He's holding a cute little pumpkin treat bucket from the same stamp set, and to balance the design a bit more, I added a bat from the previously released Best Witches stamp set.  A scattering of tiny wood stars from my stash finished off the card.

Monsterous Card

I created a coordinating treat box using the new Clear Treat Box and Box Wrap Combo.  This set comes with the scalloped die, a tiny tag (not pictured here) and 6 of the clear boxes.  The boxes are also sold separately.  I diecut the scalloped piece from Tangerine cardstock and added a black satin bow.  The little tag is from the new Tag Duo Confetti Cuts, cut from Every Little Bit patterned paper.  I colored another monster just like the one on my card and popped him up on the tag with foam tape.  Then I tied it to the box with Charcoal Twine, and filled my box with pistachios.
