For my tag, I started with CUTplorations Manila Tag Nesting dies.
I created the background on the top tag using a beautiful new stamp set - Layered Holly.  The Delight In The Joys Typographia sentiment was gold embossed on vellum.

STAMPlorations November CUTplorations Challenge REMINDER

 There's still time to play in STAMPlorations November CUTploration challenge!!

 

For my card, I was inspired by the leaf in the photo.  I chose a wood grain pattern paper for the backdrop.  I then stamped and fussy cut the leaves from the Trendy Leaves set; sponging the edges.  I layered the leaves over the tag which was cut from pattern paper using the Tags #1 Nesting dies and adding the Blessings word die cut from two different colored cardstock to create a shadow effect.  To finish, I added a natural twine bow to the tag and a few red sequins!

Thankful for You

 It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week -- 2017 is just speeding to an end!  I'm glad we have a holiday dedicated to giving thanks -- and there is so much to be thankful for even in the midst of the chaos in our world.  Hoping you and yours have a blessed Thanksgiving!

 For my card, I started with Sand cardstock for the base.  Using Premiere Polar White cardstock, I used the Leaves Cover Plate die and then sponged on Lime Green, Rust and Bumblebee ink.  I then cut gold shiny cardstock with one of the Wheat dies.  For the acorns, I stamped the one using Happy Harvest stamps/dies and then die cut Rust cardstock and a pattern paper design from Every Little Bit paper pad for the other.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:

Reverse Confetti November Sketch For You To Try


 Thanksgiving may be right around the corner, but this week's temps felt like it was Christmas!  The leaves just seemed to disappear from the trees and there was actual frost on my car windows!  Burr....  These cute little penguins that I used for my November SFYTT like this weather though!  What will inspire you?!

There is 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.  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.


For my card, I started with the new Small Diamond Tiles Cover Panel die for the backdrop. I cut Cloud White cardstock with the Topped Off Tag, Brick cardstock with the Bubbly Tag Topper die and the tab was cut from Midnight cardstock using one of the Hang Ups dies.  These super sweet penguins are from S'more Love stamp set and coordinating dies.  For the pretty snowflake, I cut Cloud White cardstock using one of the Snowflake Trio dies.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
