Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the REVERSE CONFETTI New Release Blog hop! It's a bittersweet day for me today, I've had so much fun playing along with the crew that I'm sad it's already come to an end! On the upside, I have some Christmas creations ready to go for the holiday seasons and you'll be able to get your hands on the FIVE new stamp sets and TWO new Confetti Cuts!! You can see all the new items right HERE!

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Amy’s blog - I know she had something amazing to share! 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 the new Reverse Confetti stamp sets! 

I wanted to make another gift set today. I've combined Bring on the Merry, Be a Barista and So Stripey - don't you love how fab these sets look together?!

I've paper pieced the cup from Be a Barista, fussy cutting right on the edge and trimming out the inside of the handle. I added light shading with a copic.  

The steam rising from the cup is one of the sweet little flourishes included in Bring on the Merry

The bottom of the tag layer was stamped with So Stripey. I've used my fave Seeing Spots embossing folder, and of course I finished with a button and twine!

Here's the inside of my card...

Don't you love Santa peeking out from that paper? These new sets sure have me wishing for Christmas!

I kept the same layout for my large gift sack. I stamped So Stripey on the corners of the kraft bag, then added all the embellishment to a piece of cardstock adhered to the folded over flap. Right now this guessed it...chocolate, and I'll add a gift card. 

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 the lovely Heather’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.

A few things before you hop along though, just to keep you “in the know”…
