I can't get enough of the new Masquerade stamp set with coordinating Gown Die and Mask Die Set!  I love the sweet gown that I can use for lots of girly projects, even after Halloween!  And...what would I do without those fabulous Signature Sequin Mix embellishments?!

Toil & Trouble Halloween - SFYTT


Hey there, Reverse Confetti fans!


There's still plenty of time to play along with this month's Sketch For You To Try!


Here is the sketch...fabulous, fun and so versatile!


I went all out for this one today...using LOADS of my favorite Reverse Confetti goodies!








What a fun card this was to put together!  Reverse Confetti makes it EASY to create fun projects!  
I layered up the Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts, the rounded-top rectangle from Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts and Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts all cut from some festive patterned paper.  After stamping the Spooky Cuties witches brew pot and fussy cutting it out, I added it to the circle along with a Spooky Sentiments stamped Tag Me Confetti Cuts.  The tag was tied with some ribbon and twine, then a few sprinkles of Pretty Pink Posh sequins were added as brew bubbles!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
Hope to see you and your favorite Reverse Confetti over in the SFYTT gallery!
