I made two wintery cards with these adorable little Waddles - Snow Fun Stamp set and of course I had to use Your Next Stamp Gumdrops! I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these pretty Glittered Pink Gumdrops. If you've visited my blog before, you know I have just a little Gumdrop addiction ;)...they are my absolute favourite embellishment!

I made my card with this pretty BoBunny Candy Cane Lane 6X6 paper pad and stamped one of the many sentiments from the Waddles - Snow Fun Stamp set.

This is my second card with another one of the little Waddles from the Waddles - Snow Fun stamp set...this little tobogganing Waddle totally stole my heart...how cute is he?! I used more BoBunny Candy Cane Lane 6X6 papers and I just had to add these gorgeous Glittered Silver Gumdrops! Gosh, they are SO pretty and SO glittery!

Reverse Confetti...The Color Throwdown # 314 & DS172...Bountiful Blessings!

Hey stampin' friends! Well, Thanksgiving has come and passed for us! My Mom and Dad cooked an absolutely delicious Thanksgiving dinner for us with all the trimmings! I also did a little shopping on the Thanksgiving long weekend! Chris and I went to pick up our new kitchen flooring and since we were in the area I just had to stop by One Crazy Stamper and get my Christmas card papers. I fell in love with this Authentique Grateful 6X6 papers and it ended up in my cart too!  I thought it was the perfect paper for the fabulous color pallet that Lori selected for this week's Color Throwdown # 314!


Here is the great colour combo CTD314 that we have this week at
The Color Throwdown!
I used MFT Replenishments Heavyweight Card Stock in Kraft, Whip Cream, Paver Red, Pink Lemonade and a little touch of Olive.

I used this great sketch that they have over at The Deconstructed Sketch - DS172!

I made the card-base from Kraft Heavyweight Card Stock and used the Love Note, Class Act and the Give Thanks Label Confetti Cuts. I stamped a sentiment from the Give Thanks Stamp set in Paver Red Premium Dye Ink and I stamped the cute circle heart stamp from the NEW Roundabout Additions Stamp set and cut it out with the Circles 'N Scallops Confetti Cuts. I punched a hole in it to make a little tag and tied it with some cream Hemp twine. I embellished with some pretty YNS Sparkly Pink Gumdrops.

I finished off the inside of my card and stamped another sentiment from the Give Thanks Stamp set.

I also made these cute and easy to make, place setting name cards. They are perfect to dress up you holiday table! I used the NEW Envie Wrap and Circle 'N Scallops Confetti Cuts.

I used the Lighthearted Letters Stamp set to stamp the names of the fishtail labels from Tag Me Confetti Cuts

Here is a little step-by-step tutorial on how to assemble the Envie Wrap place setting name card.

Cut two Envie Wraps from Heavyweight Card Stock

fold both die-cuts along the dashed line and apply adhesive to the bottom of one of the Envie Wraps

Adhere the Envie Wraps

Apply more adhesive to the top of the name card and then adhere top together
lining up the scalloped edge. 

this is what it looks like once you have it put together

Cut pattern paper with the Circle 'N Scallops Confetti Cuts and stamp name with the Lighthearted Letters on the fishtail Label from the Tag Me Confetti Cuts.

Thanks SO much for stopping by and havin' a wee peek at my card for this week's Color Throwdown # 314! I hope you can join us for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!

I thought it would be fun to make a Halloween door hanger with the NEW Hanging Out Confetti cuts and used the Spooky Cuties and Spooky Sentiments Stamp sets. To pick up on the banners in the patterned paper I used the Winning Confetti Cuts and I cut out several of the die-cut word "treats" from the Treat Tote Confetti Cuts in Black Licorice Heavyweight Card Stock and stacked them up for some extra dimension. I also used the Love Note, Class Act Confetti Cuts and the Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts

Thanks SO much for hopping by and havin' a wee peek at my Halloween door hanger with the NEW Hanging Out Confetti Cuts. Now it is time to continue the Reverse Confetti Release Day Blog hop and hop on over to Laurie Schmidlin's Blog! I just know she has something fun and creative to share!!!
