Creating with Confetti December Blog Hop


It’s the 8th of the month –Blog Hop time from REVERSE CONFETTI!  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 Jen Tapler’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!

For my project today I've used the Sweet Treat Tent to create a gift card holder. I love giving gift cards, and dressing them up is the way to go!


Using the Tag Me Confetti Cuts, I've created a shaker tag. I die cut the large tag twice, cut out the middle with the smaller tag, taped in some acetate then sandwiched them together with lots of sequins in between.


The banner from Tag Me was stamped with Whole Lotta Dots on the edges and the sentiment is from Tinsel 'n Trim.


For the Sweet Treat Tent base, I stamped the candy cane stripes from So Stripey in memento luxe ink. I overstamped and heat embossed the wide stripe with a gold tinsel embossing powder. I added the flair from Tinsel 'n Trim. The dots are also stamped on the inside of the treat tent.

Here's a closer look at the fabulous products I've used today:
