Greetings, 'Fetti Fam!  As I stated on my first post of the new year, we are kicking off this year in a fabulous way...with a new release! Our January releases have always been one of my favorite releases of the year and this one is no exception. Of course, it's filled with lots of Valentine's goodies, but there is also lots of everyday, year round products, too!  I have LOTS of product introductions for you today.  I usually span them over the course of the Countdown to Confetti, but when I sat down to create all these projects just came together.  Before I get to all that, here's a look at our schedule for the next few days...

In the past, I've saved our cute critters for the last day of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI, but I decided to switch things up a bit and have them as our first introduction today...

LOVE BUG

Coordinating Confetti Cuts available
In this release, we have not just one, but TWO new Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die sets.  What's really fun about these is that they were designed to work independently, but they are perfect together, too!

POSTAL COVER PANEL

STITCHED DAISIES COVER PANEL

For my first project to share with you today, I created a card using the new LOVE BUG stamps and Confetti Cuts along with both of the new Cover Panel Confetti Cuts...
This card starts with a base created from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  I used the same cardstock to cut out the POSTAL and STITCHED DAISIES Cover Panel Confetti Cuts.  Each of those layers is popped up on dimensional adhesive.
I then stamped and colored (Copic) 3 of the darling butterfly images and popped them up on the STITCHED DAISIES panel along with the stitched flight detail and "bugs & kisses" sentiment.
Finally, I added a few sequins for a little touch of sparkle...

Before I get to my next projects using the new LOVE BUG stamps and Confetti Cuts, I have another stand alone product introduction

LOVELY TAG

This is a 4 piece die set that features a tag, 2 hearts and a hole reinforcer.  It's perfect for all of your Valentine projects, but can also be used over and over throughout the year.
I love adding a cute tag to a sweet treat/giftie and these paired up perfectly...
I wish I could pick one of the these LOVE BUG images to call my favorite, but at the moment I think that they are all just so cute and adore how they work so well on cards and tags alike.
To start these, I cut 2 tags from MIDNIGHT cardstock and then ran them through my die cutting machine with the new STITCHED DAISES Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die.  This creates a subtle detail with the beautifully intricate pattern.
I also cut both sizes of hearts (BRICK AND SUNSHINE cardstock) and then stamped them with the same color with the solid line from the BACKGROUND BUILDER stamp set.
Each of the images is colored with Copic markers and die cut along with multiple layers of the cuts to create dimension.  On the bee tag, I cut multipules of the bee shape with vellum to create beautiful wings.  On each of the images, the wings have glitter detail, as well.
As you can see, the bee tag is attached to a movie theater box of Milk Duds.  I did this to match up the colors and you can play mix and match with any candy and color combo.
What's in the ladybug's container?  Yummy Hershey Kisses...

Ready for the next THREE reveals?
We know that you love our word dies and we couldn't think of anything better for Valentine's Day...

LAYERED LOTS OF LOVE

This Confetti Cuts die set featured the adjoined sentiment "lots of love" along with a matting layer.
Speaking of products that our 'Fetti Fans love, the Circle with Burst tag is definitely a fan favorite and we made another Confetti Cuts die to pair with it...

LARGE CIRCLE OF HEARTS

This is a 3 piece Confetti Cuts die set that features a circle of hearts that layers perfectly with the CIRCLE WITH BURST TAG, but of course, you can use it on its own on cards and other projects.
Also included in this release are 2 FABULOUS sentiment sets.  The first of these sets is...

VALENTINE SENTIMENTS

For my next project, I combined all three of these new products along with the CIRCLE WITH BURST TAG and LARGE DETAILED CIRCLE FRAME to create this fun Valentine's giftie...
For this tag, I started with a CIRCLE WITH BURST TAG cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  From there, I layered a PIGGY BANK cardstock cut of the LARGE DETAILED CIRCLE FRAME (mounted on dimensional adhesive).  The next layer is the new LARGE CIRCLE OF HEARTS cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE.  I added hearts cut from ROSE and BRICK cardstock on dimensional adhesive along the outside.
In the center is a circle cut from BRICK cardstock using the circle die cut included in the LARGE CIRCLE OF HEARTS Confetti Cuts die set.  I then layered a heart (new POSTAL COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts die set)cut from PIGGY BANK cardstock and stamped with stripes from the BACKGROUND BUILDER stamp set.
The LAYERED LOTS OF LOVE Confetti Cuts die set was used to cut the sentiment 3x from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  Finally, I slipped the "be mine, valentine" sentiment from the new VALENTINE SENTIMENTS just under the "lots of love" cuts.

You would think that it would be time to send you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew and our 'Fetti Friends have been up to with these goodies, but I still have another reveal and project to share with you today!
As I noted above, we have 2 new sentiment sets.  The first being the VALENTINE SENTIMENTS and the second being this fun and bold sentiment set (that also has a coordinating Confetti Cuts die set!)...

BIG HEART SENTIMENTS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts available
.
.
This next card combines the new BIG HEART SENTIMENTS with the new STITCHED DAISIES Cover Panel, POSTAL Cover Panel (hearts), LOVELY TAG (heart) and VALENTINE SENTIMENTS...
I started with a PREMIER POLAR WHITE card base (as I pretty much always do) and then layered a panel cut with the new STITCHED DAISIES Cover Panel, matted and popped up on dimensional adhesive.
From there, I added 3 hearts (2 from the POSTAL Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die set and one from the LOVELY TAG Confetti Cuts die set).  These are cut from BRICK, ROSE and PIGGY BANK cardstock.
I then added the 2 sentiments.  The first sentiment being the "it's always been you" sentiment from the new BIG HEART SENTIMENTS stamp set.  It is cut out with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set (cut 3x and layered).  I then added the "you're my forever" from the VALENTINE SENTIMENTS stamp set.
As a finishing touch, I added a few matte black dots.
