COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: NEW STAMPS, NEW CONFETTI CUTS & A BRAND NEW PRODUCT

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

We are kicking off the new year with new stamps, new Confetti Cuts dies and a BRAND NEW PRODUCT!

It’s the first day of sneak peeks, or as we like to call it: THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  On January 8th we are releasing 6 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts (we know you love your dies!) and the new QUICK CARD PANELS!

ReadyForConfetti

. . . . .

Just a note…all of our releases will happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month.  We will release new product every other month.  We’ll still be hopping on the 8th, whether there is a release or not.  Just remember, “Eight is Great!”

. . . . .

Don’t forget to leave a comment here and on each sneak peek post this week for a chance to win!

In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion (starting at 9am EST today).  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic pinned to the top of our feed…

NextRelease

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on January 7th will be randomly chosen to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Winners for both the blog comments and Facebook comments will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog as well as on Facebook.

. . . . .

You know what to do now…grab that cuppa, sit back and enjoy all the wonderful inspiration that the Confetti Crew has put together using products from this fabulous release!

. . . . .

I wear a lot of hats…first and foremost, the Mom and Wife hats. Then, of course, just about every single one that comes with owning/running a business.  A lot of times, I wear all of these all at once which makes it a little difficult to carve out a lot of time to create.  That is always something that is in back of my mind when I design products for Reverse Confetti.  It’s important to me that our products are not only high quality and on trend, but also easy to use.  As so many of you have noted, our products work well together and make paper crafting and card making FUN and EASY!  We’ve added one more product to make creating FUNNER (not a word, I know) and EASIER (read: saves time when creating)!

I’m so happy to introduce to you our new HAPPY HEART DAY QUICK CARD PANELS…

QCPJan15ProductGraphic

 QUICK CARD PANELS are limited edition premium heavyweight cardstock panels measuring 3.25″ x 4.5″.  Each package contains 2 of each 8 printed design.  They are designed for A2 card making, but you can easily use them on all of your paper crafting projects!  We will have a new set of QUICK CARD PANELS with each release. Grab them while you can, because once they’re gone, they’re gone!

You’ll see the new limited edition QUICK CARD PANELS used on a variety of projects from the Confetti Crew.  We can’t wait to see how you will use them on your creations!

. . . . .

Before I get to my projects using these awesome QUICK CARD PANELS, let’s reveal our first new set…

PUPPY LOVE

PuppyLoveProductGraphic

Puppy Love is the first set in a new line by UK artist, Dawn Machell.  We are so excited about these cute characters!

In addition, there are coordinating PUPPY LOVE Confetti Cuts dies…

PuppyLoveCCProductGraphic

This card uses both the new HAPPY HEART DAY QUICK CARD PANELS along with new PUPPY LOVE stamp set and Confetti Cuts dies…

PuppyLove1

On this card I used the stripe frame panel to frame in the pups and the heart on top was the perfect touch!

I just *ADORE* these pooches!  Here’s a cute tag I made using them along with (previously released) TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die…

Aren’t they so sweet!?!

. . . . .

This next card features the new HAPPY HEART QUICK CARD PANELS, along with the “Happy Valentine’s Day” sentiment from PUPPY LOVE

QCPCard

QUICK CARDS PANELS are the perfect size to use on A2 cards and they are fun and easy to layer, as well!  Here I cut down the main image QUICK CARD PANEL and layered it with the one I have centered and stamped.

In addition to the new HAPPY HEART DAY QUICK CARD PANELS and PUPPY LOVE stamps and Confetti Cuts, there’s more to reveal today!

Introducing HEART TO HEART stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts dies…

HeartToHeartProductGraphic

HeartToHeartCCProductGraphic

I love the HEART TO HEART set because it is so versatile.  It’s easy to go big and bold or to create something clean and simple with a fabulous focal panel.  Here I took the latter of those design themes to create this card…

GoldLove2

I really wanted the gold heart to take center stage on this card, so I die cut several of the hearts in white and layered them on a white cardstock panel.  I then stamped the “love” heart in Delicata Gold, die cut it and popped it up.  The sequins weren’t actually part of the original design plan, but when I accidentally smudged black ink on a completed card and didn’t want to start over they ended up as the perfect pairing to the gold heart.

GoldLoveDetail

. . . . .

Now for one that’s a little bigger and bolder…

Notice anything else you haven’t seen before?

The ampersand is part of a new Confetti Cuts die set that I will be revealing here tomorrow.

However, I will show you one (of 3) of the new PRETTY PANELS today.

Heart To Heart
Love is in the air! This bold and graphic stamp set features 5 large hearts with unique hand drawn sentiments, as well as 2 smaller solid hearts and a the word “love.” These hearts are a great focal image for Valentine’s cards or just for letting someone know how much you mean to them. Coordinates with the Heart to Heart Confetti Cuts die set.
Set of 8 stamps
4”x 6” stamp set
SIZE REFERENCE:
Large Hearts 1.8”x 2.03”

CONFETTI CUTS: Pretty Panels: Big Chevron
Our Pretty Panels line of Confetti Cuts dies are stand-alone dies that can be used on their own, or can be paired with the (same size) rounded rectangle from the Class Act Confetti Cuts die set and are also made to be paired with the Love Note Confetti Cuts die set.
Set of 1 wafer thin dies
SIZE REFERENCE:

NOTE: Many of our die sets are connected by thin wire and may need to be released from each other. To do so, tin snips are best, but these can often easily be taken apart by a gentle hand. Rough edges where the dies were attached may be sanded lightly (careful not to sand the cutting edge).

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Hey, ‘Fetti Fans!

Today, we have a very special WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS? It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between.

Confetti Crew member, Laurel has created a video with a fun technique using this month’s color challenge colors…
