Hello and welcome to day 2 of the Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti! Today we're diving right into the "holiday" portion of this month's release starting off with a fun new Gnome Halloween set that you're sure to fall in love with! Before I get started, don't forget about the prizes for both a blog commentor ($15) and a Facebook ($15) commentor! Here are the links to the other designers' blogs so you can see how they have used these new products!
This card features the new set called Halloween Gnomes. If you saw last year's holiday set called Holiday Gnomes, then these will be a welcome addition to your collection. I think a few of the designers made their gnomes fall/halloween last year, so this was a natural choice, I think! LOL! I stamped ALL of the images, but only ended up using the ones you see here. I will save the others for a future project. I colored them using an assortment of alcohol markers. The background of today's card features the new This and That 6 by 6 pattern paper pad.
The new Rounded Stitched Window Confetti Cuts reminds me of a large headstone, so I chose to use it as the focal point of today's card as well as a place to add the Trick Or Treat Confetti Cuts. I die cut the word twice and glued it together using a 2 way glue pen and adhered it to the window. I added it to the focal panel using foam squares.
I die cut all of the colored images using the Holiday Gnomes Confetti Cuts and added them to the card using foam squares.
A few sparkling clear sequins finish off this festive design! My cute 5 year old asked if it was his Halloween card and if he could have it! I love that kid!
My second project for today uses a beautiful new fall set called With a Thankful Heart that you are sure to love! I used it to create these fall treat containers that will brighten anyone's day!
To begin, I stamped all of the images using black ink and then colored them using Copic markers! I originally started with an orange pumpkin, but then decided that I should try it in white, since I love them so much and they are so trendy right now! By leaving it white, it really lets the flowers pop! I die cut everything using the new With a Thankful Heart confetti cuts.
The sentiment, which is from the new Sentimentally Yours stamp set, is heat embossed in white onto a black strip of cardstock. The new "With a Thankful Heart" has a lot of neat sentiments as well, but I wanted to use these scripty ones for this particular project.
I added a strip of the new This and That pattern paper onto the Bitty Window Bag using ScorTape. Since it would be on a bendable surface,I wanted to make sure it would be secure. I added the die cut elements using foam squares.
Each bag is filled with chocolate covered raisins , but you could use any type of treat that you think the recipient would like.
I tied them up with some twine for some rustic detail! I had so much fun working on today's projects! I hope you'll join me for day 3 of the Countdown tomorrow! Thanks for fluttering by!
