Howdy and welcome to the December Confetti Crew Creative Hop!

As you may know, we release on the 8th of every OTHER month, but we still have fun on our non-release months with a creative hop featuring all of the Confetti Crew and a few friends, too!

DecHop

This is the start of the hop.

There is a full list of hoppers toward the end of this post in case you get lost along the way.

As the graphic above suggests, there is a TON of AWESOME inspiration from not only the best design team anyone could ask for, The Confetti Crew, but also from some very, very special guests, or as we like to call them ‘FETTI FRIENDS!

So, get the cuppa joe or tea, get cosy and click on through this amazingly fun blog hop!  Don’t forget to leave a comment on each stop along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store. Comments are open until Tuesday, December 10th at 2pm CST, and the winner will be announced on the “Wednesday in the Works” post on the 11th right here on the Reverse Confetti blog.

I warned you a little earlier this week that I was having a little trouble steering away from the kraft, red, green, black and white color combo and this card using BRING ON THE MERRY  is just another example of my recent obsession of using these colors together.

HopCard

This is one of those cards that ended up looking nothing like what I had in mind when I started to create it. The one thing that I was certain of the whole time was the sentiment that I wanted…Merry Christmas & Happy New Year (it’s just one of SO MANY that you can create using the Bring on the Merry set).

All the other panels were tweaked, re-worked and a few may have ended up in the circular file!    To begin with, the “trees” were rectangular panels at first. After tweaking them in all different ways and not liking anything I came up with, I cut them into triangles to resemble Christmas trees. I like how they “break up” the card a little bit and resemble a tree without technically being a (paper) tree.  The embossed panel was a late addition, too.  Sometimes the creative process is much more of a process than I bargain for…LOL!  At the very end, I added the sequins for a some bling because every (Christmas) card needs that, right?!

I don’t want to keep you too long here because there is SO MUCH more to see!

Are you ready to HOP? Let’s go!
