I have lots of product introductions for you today, so let’s get to it!

When I was first planning the sets for this release I had SO MANY IDEAS that I had sketched out.  What took up a couple of large notebook papers ended up as 3 stamp sets.  These are all fun and fresh and I think that you will find yourself playing with them quite a bit!

First in today’s fabulous line up …

WORK OF ART

Coordinating Confetti Cuts

Before I get to my card using WORK OF ART, let me introduce one of my favorite Cover Panels in the RC line up…

SWOOSH COVER PANEL

I had a lot of fun creating this card…

I used our CLOUD WHITE Cardstock and Zig Watercolor Brush Pens to create the watercolored background.   The CLOUD WHITE Cardstock is PERFECT for creating watercolor background like this!  After it was all dry, I cut it using the SWOOSH COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts die.

I decided to keep the inlays on the left side and layer the pieces from the WORK OF ART set on top.  The “wet paint” look was achieved by adding clear Nuvo Drops on top of the stamped/colored images and cuts.

With this set you can stamp the paint images onto the palette, stamp and cut them or cut and then color in the paint colors.

Detail shot of sentiment…

. . . . .

Next up in our product introductions is a playful and whimsical set…

TAKE FLIGHT

Coordinating Confetti Cuts

I know that a lot of the Confetti Crew members showed off this fabulously fun Confetti Cuts die set yesterday.  Honestly, it was the first one that I reached for when I sat down to create for this release.

HELLO & THANKS LABEL

This Confetti Cuts die set cuts the label panel out and leaves the stitching on the negative.  Also included in this set are the words “hello” and “thanks” as I find those are just a couple sentiments that I use the most.

As you know, I am not much for techniques, but I do LOVE creating shakers…

The inside of the shaker is patterned paper from the new PATTERN PLAY 6×6 Paper Pad.  I stamped the “Let Your Dreams Take Flight” sentiment on top of the pattern paper and then layered the shaker portions of the card from there.

I thought the bottom portion of the card was looking a little bare, so I added a strip of LIME GREEN cardstock stamped with the slanted lines from the ELEMENTAL STRIPES with LIME GREEN ink.  I then wrapped it with HONEYDEW Twine.

TIP:  Need more height between your acetate and shaker base?  Use window seal from a hardware store.  It’s the perfect height and it comes in a roll, so you won’t be left with lots of spaces for the sequins to sneak out.

Detail shot of the sentiment, image and stitched detailing…

Shake, shake, shake…

. . . . .

Ready for the 3rd and final set introduction for today?

ROLLIN’

Coordinating Confetti Cuts

And, one more Confetti Cuts die introduction before I share my last card for today…

VERTICAL STRIPE COVER PANEL

I wanted to do something just a little different using this Cover Panel, so I used it as a slanted panel atop this card (and I really like how it turned out!)…

The skates, from the ROLLIN’ stamp set, are colored with Copics and cut from their coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

The “Let the Good Times Roll” sentiment is stamped and embossed on a circle cut from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set.  I almost didn’t emboss it, but I am so glad that I did, as it is just what this card needed.

For a finishing touch, I added the sequins that coordinated with the roller skates.

. . . . .

You’ve gotta see what the Confetti Crew HAS come up with using these fun new products.  You may even see a couple other new products along the way, too!  Don’t forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way to have a chance to win a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store!

. . . . .

Of course, we have new stamps and Confetti Cuts dies, too!

Today we are introducing not one, but TWO new “critter” sets (YAY!!).

THINK PINK

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts

Before I get to my card using this adorable feathered friends, let me introduce you to…

SUNBURST TAG LAYER

This is the latest tag layer that layers on top of the base tag from our TOPPED OFF TAG.

Now, I’m ready to share my card with you! *wink*

For this card, I started with a white card base and then added the largest frame from the ALL FRAMED UP Confetti Cuts die set.  From there I added a circle cut from the new PATTERN PLAY 6×6 Paper Pad with the Lacy Scallop Circles Confetti Cuts die set.

The tag uses the tag base from the TOPPED OFF TAG cut from the new SUNSHINE cardstock and then I added the SUNBURST TAG LAYER in BUTTERCUP cardstock (popped up with dimensional adhesive).

From there, I added my watercolored images.  First the water/greenery images and then the 2 flamingos facing each other.

The sentiment is stamped in MIDNIGHT ink below the main image panel…

For a finishing touch, I added the yellow button tied off with STRAWBERRY Twine.

. . . . .

Next up is a pair of critters that you are just going to want to squeeze!  Seriously, how adorable are these guys???…

MISO HAPPY

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

I had so much fun creating a scene using the images from this set!  I did “borrow” the sun from the THINK PINK set at the very end to complete this card.  I love how it came out…

First, I stamped several bamboo and rock images and colored them with Copic markers.  I layered those on the LACY SCALLOP FRAME layer and then added the darling lil’ pandas with their bowls.  I set that layer aside while I adhered the patterned paper layer (from the PATTERN PLAY 6×6 pad) and stamped the “you make miso happy) sentiment on the bottom right corner.  I then popped up the main image panel on top.

Detail shot…

You’ve gotta see what the Confetti Crew + the CardMaker team have come up with using these fun new products.  You may even see a couple other new products along the way, too!  Don’t forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way to have a chance to win a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store!

A little about Tricia in her own words…

Hello!  I am so excited to be a ‘Fetti Friend for May and June! I live in Cumming, Georgia with my husband, two boys (one in college and one in high school) and our lab, Snowball.  I just love Reverse Confetti; they have fun and unique products and I love creating with them!
I craft mostly on weekends till the wee hours of the night. I have been crafting and creating my whole life but only started stamping about six years ago.  It is such a great creative outlet and a way to wind down from a busy week.   I was absolutely thrilled to be invited to share my Reverse Confetti creations with you.    Thank you to Jen and her team for inviting me to join in the fun!
