Countdown to Confetti Day 3 {Reverse Confetti}

Hello there!  Welcome to day 3 of the Countdown to Confetti with Reverse Confetti!  All of the new release goodies that we are sharing with you this week will be available tomorrow, November 8th!

One of the many things that I love about Reverse Confetti is the ability to mix and match so many of their stamp sets.  The card that I have to share with you today features a brand new stamp set called Happy Winter, and an older stamp set, Coffee and You.  I knew as soon as I saw the cute little beanie hat in the Happy Winter stamp set that I wanted to dress up a critter!  And I don't know about you, but I LOVE red cup season at Starbucks, my favorite time of year!  I think these sets work perfectly together, even though at first glance, they might not be a likely pair.  Just proves there are no rules when it comes to stamping! :)

To create my card, I started off with an A2 Premier Polar White card base.  I cut another piece of white card stock to 4" by 5.25", and stamped the patterned strip from Happy Winter about 2/3 of the way up the panel in Salsa ink.  To add a bit of definition between the white and the pattern, I added a strip of Salsa cardstock.  I stamped and colored the adorable elephant from the Coffee and You stamp set, and diecut it with the coordinating Coffee and You Confetti Cuts dies.  Then, I stamped the solid beanie hat image from the Happy Winter set in Piggy Bank ink, and stamped the beanie pattern image in Salsa ink, along with the cute tassles and pompom, and diecut them all with the coordinating Happy Winter Confetti Cuts dies.  I popped the elephant and her beanie up with foam tape, and then, on a banner diecut from the Flowers For Mom Confetti Cuts die set, I stamped a sentiment from the Cool Friends stamp set.  I tucked the banner behind the elephant, and to add some fun to the white space next to her, I added a white snowflake cut using the Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts die set.  To finish things off, I added a scattering of clear sequins and some white gel pen accents, then mounted the panel on the card base using foam tape.

I love thinking outside the box when I am creating.  I  love that images don't have to necessarily be meant to go together to create cute, fun scenes.  I hope this card inspires you to dig through your stash and look at stamp sets a little differently.  More bang for your buck and extra mileage out of your stamp sets! :)

This card is fabulous! I love your elephant with a hat! I also love that elephant because he loves coffee, just like I do. The red and white color scheme looks great, too! Wonderful job on this card!
