Pretty Pink Posh - Winnie & Walter Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh and Winnie & Walter Inspiration Blog Hop!

I have two cards to share with you today using some fabulous Pretty Pink Posh dies, sequins and ribbon and some amazing stamps from Winnie & Walter!  

You should have arrived here by way of the amazing Nichol!  If not, you will want to start at the beginning of the blog hop over at Pretty Pink Posh!

Happy Halloween Card

For this Halloween card, I die cut the Stitched Film Strip Die from patterned paper and layered the strip along with the frames and embellished them with some fussy-cut pumpkins from Winnie&Walter's Moonlight stamp set.  The sentiment from Moonlight was stamped onto a piece of vellum and added to finish off the card along with some Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Tangerine, 4mm Sparkling Clear, 6mm Sparkling Clear and 6mm Pumpkin Sequins.

Thankful for You Card

For this fall-themed card, I used several Pretty Pink Posh dies to layer a fall-themed scene.  I used the rectangle from the Stitched Duo 2 Die, the tag from Stitched Duo 1 Dies, and the Stitched Borders 2 Dies along with some shiny 4mm Trick or Treat Sequins and the gorgeous Winnie & Walter stamp set, A Tree for All Seasons.  The tag was finished off with some gorgeous Brown Riffled Ribbon.

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!
