Bountiful Blessings


Good morning!
Long time no post on my blog... I'm sorry for dropping off the grid for awhile.  I've been busy with family, teaching school, and then got pretty sick - all which made for no crafting time for me!  I'm hoping to be able to get back stamping at least a little bit as I've missed it quite a bit!

I wanted to pop in with one more card for this month's Reverse Confetti's Sketch challenge that is now over and we're almost ready for a new challenge.  I was going to share this a bit earlier this week but was out of commission for the past week and a half... sorry!




I used one of my favorite sentiment stamp set and it's coordinating die to make this 'scrappy' card:








Have a great weekend!

Reverse Confetti October Release blog hop!



Good morning!  

I'm so excited to be joining the designers from Reverse Confetti in their October release blog hop!  If you've been following along on the hop today, you should have arrived from Amber's blog.  If not, please hop over to the RC company blog for all the necessary links and information on today's new release!

Today, I have a couple of projects made with the new Hanging Out Confetti Cuts.  I'm sorry I don't have a picture of this first project actually hanging on a door knob... the lighting in my house isn't the best.


This was door hanger was so fun to make!  I die cut the hanging out die on a Kraft and Chocolate Card front (4.25 x 5.5), layering them together (cutting the Kraft a bit down to layer over the Chocolate).  I used the apples from Class Act stamp set and Class Act Confetti Cuts to embellish the bottom.  The leaves were cut from felt.  I free hand cut a few stems from some Cork paper.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Banners and Beautiful Banners Confetti Cuts.


My second card uses the negative die cut from the Kraft card front above.  I trimmed the bottom of the 'knob' part of the hanging out die to make a flower vase.  The stamps are from the Round About and Round About Additions stamp sets.  The leaves are from Fresh Fruits.


Next up on the hop is Amy!

Here's photos of all the products I used on my projects today:









Happy hopping!

Reverse Confetti countdown to confetti sneak peek!

Good morning!  

Reverse Confetti is having a Countdown to Confetti sneak peek for surprise October release!  Please hop over to the RC company blog for all the links, photos, and details on today's sneak peek!


Today, I'm showing a couple of CAS cards and and an envie wrap project that I made using a couple of the products being released tomorrow.  The envie wrap die works awesome for decorating your envelopes (of course!) but it also works great on cards too!


I stamped a sentiment from the Give Thanks stamp set (I LOVE the sentiments and fonts in this stamp set!) and cut it out with a 2" circle punch, which fits perfectly inside the embossed circle part of the envelope wrap die cut.  I embellished the scallops just a bit with some small copper nailheads.


The matching envelope was a snap to make too!  I die cut the wrap again with more of the retired (a long time ago!) Stampin Up patterned paper and adhered it to the envelope.  Then, I stamped the 'deliver' image from the Round About stamp set and punched it out with a 2 1/4" scallop circle punch.  I love this wrap!


Here's another card I made with the Envie Wrap and the Roundabout stamp set - as you can see, they are so fun to play with!



Here's the Reverse Confetti products I've used on my projects for today's hop:






Have a great day!
