December Reverse Confetti Blog Hop


It's the 8th of the month, which means it's time for the Reverse Confetti Blog hop! 

Last month’s release was full of holiday magic as well as some gorgeous everyday sentiments.  
As we look forward to the holidays, it’s now time to start thinking of those small gifts, tags, treats, or just sweet notes of encouragement to spread the “Merry” to our friends, family and coworkers.  
The Confetti Crew and a few other pals have designed some great cards and projects to give you just the creative spark you’ll need to make some of your very own RC magic happen!



The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog
and you should have made it here from Kim Kesti'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 inspiration for you to see using all of Reverse Confetti’s amazing stamp sets!

Today, I'm sharing a card that I made using one of my favourite sets from
the November Release: Bring On the Merry.


I started with some vintage cream cardstock.
I created the snowflake pattern using a snowflake mask and some embossing paste.
While that was drying, I stamped my sentiments on a couple of banners that I cut using one of the Tag Me dies.
I layered my embossed panel over another piece of vintage cream cardstock and added my banners.
A few enamel dots finish it off.

Make Your Own Background.








I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today! 
Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more Reverse Confetti inspiration! 

Now it’s time to hop on over to Angelica Suarez's blog
If you get lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers 
over on the Reverse Confetti blog.

Would you like to win some Reverse Confetti goodies of your very own?  
Leave a comment on each stop along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to Reverse Confetti.
