post 2 of 2 for today...click HERE for the Reverse Confetti December Release Blog Hop


We're celebrating the Hero Arts 2017 Valentine's Collection Release with a blog hop!  All products are now available in the Hero Arts store!  You should have arrived here from Mariana's blog!  If not, all the fun starts on the Hero Arts blog!

Check out the 2017 Valentine’s Collection supplement by clicking right HERE. You’ll see the ten new products we’re introducing today!

Today, I'm featuring the Destination Paris and Heart Pattern Bold Prints:


I'm so excited to see that Paris (and London!) have been added to the Destination Collection!

I made a shaker card, the confetti/sequins are iridescent hearts!  The Destination Paris has been heat embossed in copper <-- love that stuff!


Do you see the Heart Pattern Bold Prints in the background?  It has been heat embossed in white.

We hope to visit Paris next Fall!  My boy should be there on a Study Abroad program and we can't wait!

Next up is Clare Prezzia!  In case you get lost along the way, here's the entire hop listing!

Reverse Confetti December Blog Hop!

Today is the day!  It is the Reverse Confetti December Release Blog Hop!  That means all the new release products that we've been sneak peekin' are now available in the shop!



I have an ABC, anything but (a) card, to share:


I tend to squirrel away things that would be fun to use for blog hop projects.  That coffee sleeve was in my stash.  I love it because it's embossed and black.  I started off with the Lacy Scallop Circle and then popped the fun Mouse Mail guy on there.  I've used Cloud White + Lime Green Cardstock.


I've stamped a sentiment in Avocado from the Outlined stamp set onto the Peekaboo Tag Layer.  Check out what is inside the Peekaboo Tag Layer:


When the recipient gently rips open the tag, they'll read the Be a Barista sentiment that has been stamped in Lime Green.  The reusable Starbucks cup can be filled with a Gift Card, Via coffee, chocolate...you name it!

The Heart Desires Challenge #7: Merry Howlidays



post 2 of 2 for today...click HERE for Reverse Confetti's Countdown to Confetti Day Three

Hello, today is the start of the new The Heart Desires challenge #7!  Check out this gorgeous inspiration:


I'm a huge fan of color so I had fun putting together this card.  It combines a couple different companies.


Let's start off with that sweet Happy Howl-idays dog from Avery Elle.  Isn't he the cutest?  He's sitting on the Hero Arts Winter Cheer tag by Lia.  I used the Farm Fresh Gingham paper by MFT.


The green watercolor wash for the background was created with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.

I can't wait to see how my teamies were inspired!  I hope that you'll play along too!




Reverse Confetti : Countdown to Confetti Day Three: You made my day!

Hey there 'Fetti Fans, it's the Countdown to Confetti Day 3!!!!

On the 8th all the new Reverse Confetti stamps + confetti cuts will be available for purchase. We will be counting down the fun until New Release Day! 




We have a FABulous December 'Fetti Friend:


Today we are featuring:
Figure of Speech stamps + coordinating confetti cuts

Here's how I was inspired:


I decided to team up the Figure of Speech stamps + coordinating confetti cuts with the adorable previously release, Coffee and You set.  I'll start on the bottom and work my way up!  The star panel is from the Fright Night paper pad.  I dry embossed the Lime Green panel.  The Figure of Speech has been stamped with Avocado ink.


All of the Coffee and You images have been stamped with Versafine Onyx and colored with Zig Clean Color Markers.
