Reverse Confetti October Release * Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the October Mini Release Blog Hop by Reverse Confetti. 

I'm so happy to join the Design Team and some special guests as a Fetti Friend! We shared loads of inspiration over the last two days using the new goodies and NOW, the wait is over, they are available in the shop! Yay!


  • I rarely make gift card holders, so I was excited to play with the Gift Card Holder Cover Panel, such a fun die! I also wanted to make a set of cards to highlighting the Seasonal Say It All sentiment set and give you an idea for quick and easy Christmas cards.

 Instructions:  for the gift card holder
  • stamp your images from the Cookies and Milk set onto watercolor paper using a waterproof ink
  • color them with watercolor markers and cut them out
  • die cut the Gift Card Holder Cover Panel from light gray card stock
  • die cut the gift card from white card stock twice
  • stamp your greeting onto the first white gift card piece
  • color the second gift card piece using Distress Inks and a blending tool
  • glue the colored gift card to your gift card holder base
  • adhere the critters and images to the card with foam tape
  • insert the white note card / gift card 
  • glue your card front to white paper and cut off the access paper

 Instructions:  for the card set
  • stamp the tree from Cookies and Milk twice and some cute critters from your stash as well onto watercolor paper
  • color them with watercolor markers and cut them out
  • use a stamping tool (like the MISTI) to position your sentiments from the Seasonal Say It All set
  • ink up and stamp all the sentiments in one go, you can repeat this for multiple backgrounds and change the colors in between
  • add a little blue ink blending to create a horizon
  • adhere your images with foam tape
  • add some glitter (I used Stickles) to give the snow some shine

Bonus idea: I would have added a cute little star to the "sentiment sky" if I had one, I feel like a visual triangle between the critter, the tree and on single star would have worked very well.

  • Backgrounds that are made with small stamps or multiple sentiments give your project a fun look and are perfect for making multiples of one layout, like for Christmas cards.


Find loads of inspiration on your way from blog to blog. The Design Team and Fetti Friends created wonderful projects using todays highlighted stamp and die set.

Products used:


  1. Nicole, such DARLING projects!

  2. Darling gift card holder and cards! Love the cute Cookies and Milk scene, and the cards have great backgrounds and adorable images! Sweet!

  3. The cookies are milk are my favorite so far! It is so sweet to see them atop this gift card holder! I like how you did the A2 cards with the multiple sentiments kind of faded into the background! Such cute critters and while a star might be a great addition, it looks fab as it is!

  4. Nicole, I think your critters in the woods are just adorable and this scene is so serene and sweet! I really wish I was with them eating cookies!
    I also really like the multiple sentiments all lined up with the hedgehog and the tree. A star would be a nice touch, but not necessary. It looks fab, as is! :)

  5. Wow, awesome projects! Love the C&S cards with tree & critter! Again, love your watercolor projects & I loved the added “Tip” at end of post about the star!
