 There are crazy amounts of inspiration and creativity in store - not to mention lots of prizes to be won.  Best of all is the camaraderie with old friends and meeting new ones!!


 For my card, I chose to use some great products from Dare2B Artzy.  For the background, I used one of the images from the Be Bold set (I guess I like this set so much, I realized when I was making this card, that I purchased two of them!).  The coffee cups were created with Perfect Blend stamps and coordinating dies.

Looking forward to seeing your fabulous coffee/tea summer themed creations.  See you on the hop!!

 It's Monday!!  Why am I so excited about that?  Because it means it's time for a new Merry Monday Christmas card challenge!!  Linda has a very sweet challenge for us this week:  Create a Christmas card with a bear on it!

Roses of Thanks

 My card today was inspired by several challenges and one in particular...Mojo Monday sketch challenges.  This is the very last challenge for Mojo Monday which makes me very sad.  I've loved these wonderful card sketches and want to thank Julee and the rest of the design team for their amazing inspiration and talent!!

I used several pattern paper designs from My Mind's Eye Hello Gorgeous.  The roses were created with Papertrey Ink's The Sweet Life stamps/dies and the word die is also from PTI.  The pretty rectangle panel is Reverse Confetti's Lacy Scallop Frame Confetti Cuts.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:

Reverse Confetti June Sketch For You To Try

There's a new Reverse Confetti June Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) and a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the store!

For my card, I started by watercoloring the three background panels and laid them over a piece of Midnight cardstock.  Using the newly released Work of Art set and coordinating Confetti Cuts, I stamped the sentiment on Cloud White cardstock cut from one of the Lacy Scallop Circle Confetti Cuts and stamped/cut the paint tube, brushes and pallet.  For the pallet, I cut from three different colored cardstock to match the background:  Bubblebee, Salsa and Iced Aqua.

 Hope you'll join in the fun!


 There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.

The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 29th. The SFYTT button is posted on the sidebar on the Reverse Confetti blog.  Click on it to be taken to the current SFYTT post and link list.

Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!  You may enter as many times as you wish.

There will be a winner each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog at the end of the month.
