WooHooo!  Sneak peeks for the March release have now officially begun!  We like to call this time the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  For the next four days we will be sharing a bevy of spectacular projects featuring our new release of SIX new stamp sets and FIVE new Confetti Cuts!  All of the products go live in the Reverse Confetti store at midnight (EST) on March 8th. 

NewReleaseSchedule

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!”

Before I get started today, I just want to remind you to leave a comment here and on each sneak peek post this week for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate.

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…

As I always say when we kick off our Countdown to Confetti, this is going to be a long post (tutorial included!)… grab that cuppa joe (or tea), sit back, relax and enjoy!

I’d love to tell that spring has sprung, but it really seems like the winter of “polar vortexes,” “thunder sleet” and “cobblestone ice” is holding on for a bit longer.  Here’s to wishing that those terms are all put to rest soon and that spring will actually, well, spring!  You’ll notice that a few of our March sets are spring themed, and I think of spring, I can’t help but think of bunnies.  Cute, fluffy and sweet…they were the perfect inspiration to our new QUIRKY CUTIES line.

Let me introduce to you, BEBE BUNNY who is spring at heart, but can easily be used for occasions throughout the year…

My first project for today features darling BeBe Bunny on an everyday “hello” card, perfect for sending to a special someone just because.

BeBeCard

As you can see, she is facing to the left.  This is so she can be paired with her friend, FREIDA FOX, if you wanted to put the two together!  (Yes, those are the little things I think about!).

I’m really happy to be breaking out my Copics again for the Quirky Cuties line!  To get the gray color on her “fur,” I used my blender along with T1, T3 and T5.  Here’s a detail shot of the some of the coloring, as well as the tab die from our new Confetti Cuts set: OFFICE EDGES

Full reveal of the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts:

OfficeEdgesConfettiCuts

This set features 5 dies that are the perfect element additions to your paper crafting creations.  You may be thinking, “What is that long skinny oval for?”  When you pair it with the large tab, you are able to make an envelope closure like shown on this card…

CardClosure

It’s SUPER simple to create this closure.  Here’s how I did it on this card…

I started with a panel of cardstock measuring 3.25″ x 10″.

Tutorial1

Tutorial2

Gate fold your card and then…

Tutorial4

Tutorial5

Open up your card before running it through your die-cutting system.

Tutorial6

Remove die and washi tape and this is the cut you will have.

Tutorial7

Tutorial8

Now, you can gate fold it once more and close.

Tutorial9

I embellished the top/left side of this card using pattern paper and a piece of white cardstock cut with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.

Tutorial10

Again, the completed outside of the card with my daughter’s name stamped with letters from LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS onto the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts set and paired with the heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set…

CardClosure

And, the inside featuring stamps from our newest KEY WORDS COLLECTION set: ALL ABOUT YOU stamped onto the scalloped rectangle LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts. For a little extra detail, before I adhered the panel to the card base, I stamped the large dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS in white pigment ink on the base.

(See those flames?  You’ll be seeing those again later this week. *wink*)

Introducing the set, ALL ABOUT YOU

YOUProductGraphicSheet250

As with all of our KEY WORDS COLLECTION sets, you can use the “key word” YOU to build sentiments like shown below.  This particular set also features the “second half” of a sentiment that you can use like shown or on the inside of a card.

ProductDetails

BeBe Bunny

Say hello to BeBe.  She’s the second character in our QUIRKY CUTIES line drawn by Olivia McDaniel.  She’s both quirky and cute and a great image not only your spring and Easter projects, but for a year round cards and gifties, too.  This line art image is great to color and/or paper piece.

All About You

All About You is part of our original KEY WORDS COLLECTION, which provides you with a “key word” to mix and match to create a wide variety of sentiments.  This particular Key Words Collection set also includes “in and out” sentiments so that you can easily create a card, complete with an inside sentiment.

Set of 14 stamps

CONFETTI CUTS: Office Edges

The Office Edges Confetti Cuts die set is fun and versatile and will bring great detail to your cards, tags, scrapbook pages and other paper crafting projects.  The “chunky” notebook paper edge is a fun element that is unlike your traditional torn notebook paper edges.  Paired with the perforated edge, you can create your very own mini notebook paper panels…so cute!  Also included are 2 tabs.  The wider tab fits into the long skinny oval so that you can create your very own closures…talk about a versatile set!
