Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop

Today, I'm participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

Our challenge was to use this beautiful photo as inspiration:

Isn't it beautiful?
Here's the card that it inspired...

I started by stamping my sentiment from Phrases and Praises in
PTI Ocean Tides ink on stamper's select white cardstock, to match the colours of the pumpkins.
I made a border for my card with soft stone cardstock, stamped with the woodgrain stamp
from Concord & 9th.
I wet some watercolour paper and coloured over it with two Zig Markers
and then went over the colouring with water.
Once it was dry, I splattered ink mixed with water over top.
Once that was dry, I diecut some Fancy Foliage Detail dies from it.

A trio of pure poppy buttons and some button twine finishes it off.

Thanks for looking!

Inspired By Halloween Decor

Recently, I found this fun photo of Halloween mantle decor...


I was inspired by the top of the mantle, with all of the black and white
with just the pop of green!
I couldn't resist using my new Best Witches stamp set 
from Reverse Confetti to make my card.

I stamped the images & sentiment from Best Witches and decided to just 
colour in the potion in the cauldron with my Zig Markers.
I also added a little shading at their feet.
This reminds me of children's books from my childhood when only one thing was coloured in!

I used my Lotsa Dots Stencil to apply Lime Green Ink onto a piece 
of Lime Green Cardstock.
I trimmed my Cloud White Cardstock at an angle and layered it overtop.

Butterfly Reflections Ink October Mood Board & Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge #2

Today, I have a card to share for
 Butterfly Reflections Ink October Mood Board

Isn't it gorgeous?
I love those rich hues!

I decided to use my Concord & 9th Flourish stamp set to make my card.

I started by smooshing some PTI Hawaiian Shores ink mixed with water
onto my watercolour panel.
Once it was dry, I stamped the leaves from Concord & 9th's Flourish stamp set
 in PTI's Tropical Teal, after spritzing my inked stamp with water first.
I repeated this for the Summer Sunrise flowers I stamped.
Lastly, I stamped the flowers in Altenew's Cosmic Berry.
I didn't spritz it with water first, because the Altenew inks don't react to that
well, not like the PTI inks do.

I stamped my sentiment using SSS's Big Scripty Sentiments.

The Challenge #83 -- Guest Designer

Note: This is my second post for today.
Scroll down to see my Inspired By All The Little Things post
or click here.

I'm very excited to be guest designing for The Challenge today!

I was inspired by the colours (white, red and that fun blue!), the red & white stripes
and the pretty ornaments on the tree.
I decided to use some of my Reverse Confetti products to make my card.

I created a stencil using the Vintage Ornaments Confetti Cuts and blended ink 
onto my card front, using Delicata Silver Ink and Reverse Confetti Brick ink.
I stamped the hangers in Delicata Silver ink.

I stamped the "Merry Christmas" stamp from Vintage Ornaments
I added twine as well as a piece of patterned paper from the
Very Merry 6x6 paper pad to finish it off.

Be sure to check out The Challenge and see what the DT
came up with using the inspiration photo,
and to play along, if you'd like.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge -- Glittery Gourds -- Take Two

 I have another card to share that I made using the current

This time, I chose to use my Simon Says Stamp Hey Pumpkin stamp set.
Sage got invited to a friend's birthday party, so I made this card for her.

I heat embossed my image in gold and then cut around it and trimmed the panel.
It's hard to tell, but I impressed my black cardstock in the background with PTI's Super Stripes IP.

I stamped the sentiment using SSS's Big Scripty Sentiments
and added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish it off.

Remember, there's still time to play along with this
 Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

Happy Fall-idays: Thanksgiving

Hey there!
We are so excited to bring you Happy Falli-days this week,
filled with lots of inspiration from Reverse Confetti!
We have a theme for each day, so you'll want to check out 
the Reverse Confetti blog for details.

Our theme for today is Thanksgiving. 
We actually celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving a week and a half ago,
but I wanted to share an idea that my sister-in-law did for our meal.
She bought pears and tied a leaf shaped tag to each one.
At the end of our meal, she passed them all out.
On the front of the tag was a number, with a Bible verse that the recipient
read aloud and a sentence started like "I'm thankful for..."
Each person took turns reading their verses and finishing their sentences.
It was really cool!

I thought that the Reverse Confetti faith-based sets would be perfect for this project.

Aren't they pretty?
Just imagine a bowl full of these...

I started by diecutting the largest Swirlies Confetti Cuts from Stone Cardstock
and backing it with a piece of Cloud White Cardstock, on which I stamped a sentiment.
I added two stamped leaves using Blooms 'n Buds & Blooms 'n Buds Confetti Cuts,
which I stamped using Lime Green Ink & Tangerine Ink.

On this one, I used a sentiment from My Heart Trusts.

And here's the Bible verse I added to the back.

On this tag, I used God is Good.

And I added this verse to the back.

On for this tag, I used a sentiment from Walk By Faith, which I stamped twice --
once on the background and once on the swirled Confetti Cut.

And the verse on the back.






Here's a list of the other Reverse Confetti DT that are sharing
Halloween projects today on their blogs:
