Ok, 'Fetti Fam, you know the drill...grab that cuppa and sit back and enjoy DAY ONE of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI.  We have LOTS to share with you today!
The first of our reveals is a new FREE stamp set!  Yes, I said FREE!  We know that you all love the free FRIENDLY RAINBOW set and we loved packing them into your orders and seeing you create with them.  This release's freebie is a fun holiday set...

PEACE TREE

Note, this set must be added to your cart to receive it.  The discount for the set is automatic.
I've had a lot of fun creating with this set and there are so many possibilities for mixing and matching colors to create different color trees.  Of course, you can use the triangles and other elements on their own, too!
The color combo I used on the triangles (from bottom to top) is Lime Green, Mint and Pistachio.  For the branches, I used RC Aqua.  The scalloped edge is stamped in Magenta and the tree base/pot is Midnight with lines stamped in a white pigment ink.  The white pigment ink was also used to stamp the dot detail throughout the tree.  The PEACE ON EARTH sentiment is stamped on the card base below the main image panel in Midnight ink.
. . . . .
Did you notice anything else that might be part of this release on the card above?  We have a few FABULOUS Cover Panels that are coming out and 2 of them actually go together, but can also be used separately (like above)...

BIG POLKAS COVER PANEL

LAYERING SCALLOP CIRCLES COVER PANEL

Before I get to my projects using this fun duo of dies, let me introduce our new Halloween set...

SPOOKTACULAR

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
I absolutely LOVE all things Halloween.  I'm really hoping that Halloween will still be fun for the kiddos this year.  My neighbor asked me if I want to set up a walk through "cemetery" in our cul-de-sac...ummm, yes!!  And I will creating and decorating for Halloween all the way up until 10-31!
You're here for the reveals and inspiration, so I'll get to that!  But first, another reveal...

CIRCLE RAYS DUO

This Confetti Cuts die set is SO FUN to work with.  I had originally designed it for use with another set that we will be revealing soon, but then realized that I keep reaching for it over and over again as a unique design element.  What do you think?
You can see in this card how the BIG POLKAS and LAYERING SCALLOP CIRCLES Cover Panels work together.  On this card, there is a GRAPE SODA cardstock base.  I then cut the LAYERING SCALLOP CIRCLES Cover Panel from MIDNIGHT cardstock and layered in under the BIG POLKAS Cover Panel cut from LEAD cardstock.  The Cover Panels are popped up with dimensional adhesive over the GRAPE SODA PANEL.
The main image panel starts with a circle cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock with the larger of the CIRCLE RAYS DUO Confetti Cuts.  From there I layered the vampire (colored with Copic markers), stars (from SEEING STARS Confetti Cuts and stamped with the big stripe from BACKGROUND BUILDER), the bats and the sentiment strips.
I finished it off with a few sequins and rhinestones.  And, can I just say how much I love these cute little bats?!?
. . . . .
My husband, Tony, jokes that I have spent a lot of time in my "white period" of creating.  It's true, I love to create cards that are predominantly white.  I guess I'm drawn to the crispness of how the colors pop off of it...I don't know...lol!  Well, here's another card from my "white period" using the new SPOOKTACULAR stamps and Confetti Cuts dies...
I didn't even realize until I was photographing this card that it looks like the ghost is looking up to the pumpkin.  It makes me think of all the pictures I have of my kiddos with my son looking up so endearingly to his big sister.  Admittedly, I kinda miss those days.  They are 10 and 14 now.  I think that's probably all I have to say for anyone to realize there are no more endearing looks between the two at this point in time. Ha!
I started with a CLOUD WHITE cardstock card base and added the watercolored images on dimensional adhesive.  From there, I stamped the stars and added the sentiments.  A few sequins were added around the stars for a little extra twinkle.
. . . . .
In the continued spirit of all things autumn today, let's move on to our next product reveal...

PICK OF THE PATCH

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
Notice those shelves of pumpkins?  The inspiration from that image comes straight from our local pumpkin patch.  I'm hoping that we will still get to go this year and snag a few pics!  Until then, I'll just be here in my studio coloring pumpkins on a shelf...
This slimline card is created from CLOUD WHITE cardstock.  I layered a panel of CLOUD WHITE with RUST and adhered it to the base.  From there, I added the watercolored pumpkin shelves.
The HELLO FALL sentiment is stamped with MIDNIGHT INK on CLOUD WHITE cardstock and layered with strips of RUST cardstock.  I added the cute lil' hedgie and leaves.
. . . . .
I have one more card to share with you today using the new PICK OF THE PATCH set, along with the new Cover Panel dies I revealed above...
The base of this card is CLOUD WHITE cardstock.  On the bottom portion, I layered SAND cardstock with the Cover Panels cut from STONE and CLOUD WHITE.  On the top portion, I added the watercolored images on dimensional adhesive, with the sentiment strip just below them.
. . . . .
It is now time for me to send you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew and our very talented 'Fetti Friends have to share with you today.  Don't forget to leave a little love along the way for a chance to win some spending money for the new release!  All of the new goodies will be live in the store at midnight on September 8th.
