Color Throwdown and Reverse Confetti: Trick or Treat

This is my third post today.

The next challenge that I wanted to play on World Cardmaking Day is color throwdown.  I love the natural, fall color scheme.

Trick or Treat

I envisioned the natural colors with the chunky Halloween sets from Reverse Confetti, so I also checked out their sketch and it all worked together!!  The sketch also allowed me to use one of their fun dies.  It's just a simple circle (and there are scalloped circles) - but check out the ridge along the edge which makes a clean and simple frame.



I thought I'd get quite a bit more done today for World Cardmaking Day, but I really do have to consider showering and getting ready to head out and cheer my kids on at a marching band competition.  They are virtually certain to make finals - so it's going to be a late night.  It's been a fun day, crafting uninterrupted for four hours (and, yes, I know I only made four cards) - I might have to figure out how to make tomorrow a card day too!

  • Stamps: Reverse Confetti Spooky Cuties and Spooky Sentiments
  • Paper: Carta Bella A Perfect Autumn 6x6, Stampin' Up Kraft and Tangelo Twist
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Tangelo Twist, Simon Says Fog, Black, Versmark
  • Accessories: Reverse Confetti Circle 'n Scallops die, Pretty Pink Posh 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins, Hero Arts white embossing powder
