Reverse Confetti October Blog Hop



Hello October and Hello REVERSE CONFETTI Fans!  It’s the 8th of the month –Blog Hop time! Are you ready to savor some sweet inspiration? Grab a cuppa and take some time to enjoy this month’s creative Blog Hop from REVERSE CONFETTI  Last month’s release was all about fall and spooks, and today we are inspiring you with projects and cards using those stamps and any other previously released stamps from REVERSE CONFETTI  Along with the Confetti Crew (our fabulous design team), we’ve also invited some extra friends to join in on the action!  




The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Gayatri Murali's blog. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all of Reverse Confetti’s amazing stamp sets!
For today's hop, I've created a simple treat project -- a wrapped Hershey bar with a SPOOKY CUTIES tag. The tag is an extra-small and modified version of the October SFYTT. (I changed the horizontal rectangle panel to a circle. )



Here's a close-up of the stamping. Bat and fence are from SPOOKY CUTIES , and the sentiment was done with LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS.



And here's what the (almost) whole thing looks like:





I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! Now it’s time to hop on over to Dawn Easton’s blog.
