COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI | DAY ONE
Hello and Happy Thursday to all of our 'Fetti Fans!
 
Yes, you read that graphic correctly...this is our FIFTIETH release!  I still remember my hubby coming home from work the night of our first release with a bottle of bubbly (it may have even been cider so the kids could partake) and flowers with a balloon.  One of my dearest friends sent a card that she had hand drawn "Congratulations" on the front and the sweetest note inside.  That was nearly 7 years ago.  While we drank the bubbly and the flowers died as quickly as the release came and went, I still have that balloon and card in my office.  Hundreds and products and projects later and here we are at 50!  We have a wonderful COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI lined up for you over the course of the next few days and all of the new product will be live in the store at midnight EST on the 8th.

 

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.  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…
On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on on March 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 the drill, my friends!
Grab that cuppa and sit back, relax and enjoy all the Confetti Creativity we have to share with you today!
You're expecting a paper pad to be right here.  Well, we are skipping the paper pad this month, but be on the lookout for specials on our previously released paper pads!  Hint, hint...we need to make some room to move in more!
First up in this super spring release is this new stamp set...

CHOOSE JOY

Coordinating Confetti Cuts...
And, before I get to my projects featuring these products, we have a couple of stand alone items to introduce...

SCALLOP WINDOW TAG

This tag is a 2 piece die that cuts a large tag.  You then have the option to create a window with the other die that features scallops at the top and bottom.

DOUBLE STITCH WINDOW COVER PANEL

Using all of the above products, I created a set of tags and a coordinating card...
The card base is 4.25" square.  I used the new DOUBLE STITCHED WINDOW COVER PANEL, but cut it down.  I love that it fits perfectly on a 4.25" when just cut from the bottom (no additional trims needed at the top).
I stamped the flower and the triple leaf image all over the Cover Panel cut in Coral, Magenta, Buttercup and Lime Green Confetti Colors inks.
The woodgrain frame is stamped in white pigment ink on SAND CARDSTOCK.  Please note, the woodgrain on this circle frame is super intricate and not all water based inks will pick up on its intricate nature. 
I love all the hand drawn sentiments included in this set and had fun creating this set of tags with them...
As you can see, this tag set coordinates with the card above using the same color scheme.  I cut the SCALLOP WINDOW TAG from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and then stamped the sentiment in MIDNIGHT ink.  On the bottom is piece of cardstock that is stamped with the flower and leaf images and cut with the tag die and layered on the base tag.
. . . . .
We have had so many people bring our faith based stamps into their collection.  It's been a little while since we released one of these sets and I figured that with Easter on the horizon, it was the "perfect time."

PERFECT TIMING

The sentiments that I are partially blocked with the watermark are:
"praying that the Lord speaks to your heart"
"have faith"
"I prayed for you today"
"God's timing is perfect"
For my project using the PERFECT TIMING set, I used the "God made rainbows..." sentiment and I paired it with the OVER THE RAINBOW and SUN 'N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die sets...
I started with a PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock card base.  I then added a small strip of ICED AQUA cardstock to the bottom portion of the card base and added a PREMIER POLAR WHITE panel.  The sentiment is stamped with MIDNIGHT INK and is offset matted atop the rainbows, sun and clouds.
The rainbow is created from BRICK, TANGERINE, BUTTERCUP, LIME GREEN, ICED AQUA and GRAPE JELLY cardstock colors.

The time has come for me to send you on your way.  The Confetti Crew has some AMAZING projects to share with you today and you may even catch a glimpse at another fabulous product that we are releasing on the 8th (don't worry, I'll be sharing it here very soon).  Please note, some of our international designers are still awaiting their DT packages.  We will have a separate release celebration with them very soon so that they can share all of their inspiration with you, too.
