Happy October, ‘Fetti Fans!

Oh my goodness, where has time gone.  I swear it was just yesterday that I was prepping for our first release (in May).  I blinked and it’s almost 5 months later.  I guess it’s true…time flies when you’re having fun!

. . . . .

Today it’s kind of a two-fer post…TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY + SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY.



There are so many ways to make this sketch your own!  For this card, I used lots of layers and textures…and some creepy sparkly spiders to dress it up a bit along with the SPOOKY SENTIMENTS and ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS sets


For the 3 circles on the right side of the panel, I chose to go with burlap for something a little different and I love the contrast against the sparkly spiders (which scared the heck out of my kids!)…


In addition to the 3 dimensional spiders and burlap, I also added texture and dimension by distressing the edges of my papers, sewing (I am now convinced my sewing machine has a personal vendetta against me after this experience) and embossing.  I even sanded down my embossed circles.

In addition to the sanded circles, you can also see the VersaMark stamped arrows from the ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS set on the the purple panel.  It’s subtle detail that I absolutely love.


The SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY details you need to know…

  • There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.
