Well, today it's my turn to share my latest card for the OCTOBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY
from REVERSE CONFETTI
. It's a great sketch, but aren't they all??? Haha.
I've had this idea rumbling in my head for a week or so now to use the large flower from the BUILD A BUNCH Confetti Cuts
to create a sunflower, so I based my card around using that as an embellishment. I layered a piece from the EVERY LITTLE BIT 6X6 pad
for my pattern to really kick up the color of this card. The main panel is from my favorite die set right now--the PIERCED ROUND TOP LAYERS Confetti Cuts
onto which I stamped the AUTUMN BLESSINGS
sentiment and cute background toward the bottom in Tangerine
ink. I then made the two "sunflowers" with some Sunshine
cardstock, and then used the smallest "stitched" circle from the DETAILED CIRCLES Confetti Cuts
for the center of the larger flower. The smaller center was just circle punched. Here's a look at what I used today. Y'all be sure and head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog
to see what the other gals have created for today, and all the details on how to play along for a chance to win a Reverse Confetti Gift Certificate! Why don't you play along!?!?!
Well, it's the 8th of the month
and that means it's time for a little inspiration with our monthly blog hop from REVERSE CONFETTI!
There's no release this month, but you'll LOVE
what's coming in November! The hop started over on the REVERSE CONFETTI BLOG and then moves on over AMY KOLLING'S BLOG, and you should have made it here from LAURIE'S BLOG. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of projects for you to see focusing on all that Reverse Confetti offers. I think this weekend I'll start doing a little fall decorating, and thought this fall themed card would be a nice way to kickstart that little task. The patterned papers I chose to use are from the FRIGHT NIGHT 6X6 Paper Pad and also the UNDER THE UMBRELLA 6X6 pad. After I made a nice little base layer on my card, I created the main circle panel using the new FA LA LA CIRCLE Confetti Cuts and cutting them from Sand, Dark Roast, and Avocado cardstocks. I topped that layered circle panel with the GRATEFUL, THANKFUL, BLESSED Confetti Cuts die. I added a final touch of the small pumpkin on top of my bow by cutting it from the TOO CUTE TO SPOOK Confetti Cuts set.
Normally, I'm the last person on the hop every month, but this time, one of our very special guests is following me up to close us out...

To start my card off, I used this month's SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY
from REVERSE CONFETTI
. Although the main stamp from this set spans the width of a vertical 4 1/4" card, I decided to turn my card (and sketch) and create a horizontal layout since I wanted to add the cute cake from the Candles 'n Confetti set. Y'all be sure and head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog to see what the other gals have created for today, and all the details on how to play along for a chance to win a Reverse Confetti Gift Certificate! It would sure be sweet if you played along! LOL!
