It wouldn't be a birthday release without a celebration set...

PARTY PALS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts...
And, what's a party without some balloons...

BALLOONS

. . . . .
My first card to share with you today features LOTS of new products:  PARTY PALS stamps and Confetti Cuts, BALLOONS Confetti Cuts, INSIDE SCALLOP CIRCLE TAG Confetti Cuts and CENTER CIRCLE COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts...
I started with a card base created from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and layered a piece of polka dot paper from the WINTER WONDER 6x6 paper pad.  From there, I added CENTER CIRCLE COVER PANEL cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE.
I added a strip of ICED AQUA cardstock across the panel and then layered the main image panel on top.
The main image panel is created from the INSIDE SCALLOP CIRCLE TAG Confetti Cuts - I love that I can use this as both tag, as its name intends and as a panel on my projects.
The balloons are cut from RC AQUA, ICED AQUA and GRAPE SODA cardstock.  I adhered sewing thread to the backs of them, as I felt there was already enough stitching happening on the card and chose not to use the stitched string details included with the BALLOONS Confetti Cuts die set.
The bear and presents image is colored with Copics and is popped up with dimensional adhesive.  Finally, I added the sentiment on strips of PREMIER POLAR WHITE and added a few sequins.
. . . . .
And, drumroll please!  Our final introductions of this release...

CORGI CUTIES

My love for Corgis started nearly 2 decades ago when we inadvertently adopted one.  Are you asking "what the heck do you mean by "inadvertently?!"  Well, let me tell you a little story...
Newly married and having just moved to Texas from San Diego, my husband, Tony, and I chatted about having a dog.  We had seen some puppies, but none of them really stole our hearts...until we met Abby.  We were driving somewhere when I looked over and in the parking lot of our local Albertson's grocery store, there was a family with puppies and a sign that said "free puppies!"  Remember when that was a thing??  Yea, that's how long ago this was - 16 years to be exact.  I begged him to pull over and he did and I rushed to hold one of the darling itty bitty pups and then looked at Tony with my own puppy dog eyes.  We asked a few questions.  Like, "what breed is this?"  We were told that she was a HUSKY and GERMAN SHEPARD mix!  We agreed that she needed to come home with us and so she did.  I took her to the vet the very next day and he said that she kinda looked like a St. Bernard, but he still wasn't sure what breed she really was...until I brought her in for her boosters a few weeks later and while the rest of her body had grown, her legs had not!!  He laughed and said, "Well, it looks like you have yourself a Corgi!"  Our best guess is that she is mixed with a shepard of some sort, but Corgi is definitely her dominant breed.  She's was such a fun puppy and soon we got her a playmate, Cooper.  He has since passed on and she is still with us.  It's been 17 years of memories with this sweet and stubborn (OMG-so stubborn!) girl.  She welcomed our babies home from the hospital, she has been in every house we've moved to (we've moved a lot) and she is "Ellie's fan club president," following her around everywhere.  She sleeps most of the time now, but is still happy and healthy.  I'm glad that we happened to be passing by those "free" puppies that day, as she has brought a lot of joy into our lives and our children's lives - although she has been anything but "free!" LOL!
  Here are a few photos of our sweet "ABBY-DOG..." from puppy to present...
In honor of Abby's youthful days, here is a sweet and playful puppy card.  Although I must say, Abby would never play with a ball.  She had this rubber chicken and it was the *only* toy that she would play with. I had to keep buying replacements off of Amazon, when Target ceased to carry them.  Stubborn little lady!!
The card base is cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and I ran it through with the twirly ribbon die from the BALLOONS Confetti Cuts to give the appearance of a bouncing ball.
The dog and ball are colored with Copic markers and are popped up with dimensional adhesive.
The clouds are from the, previously released, HONEY BEAR set and are stamped in NAVY ink on PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and popped up with dimensional adhesive...
The "grass" under the dog is a strip of AVOCADO cardstock and I stamped the sentiment on it in white pigment ink.  It's popped up on dimensional adhesive atop of strip of paper cut from the SWEET STRIPES 6x6 paper pad...

It's time for me to sign off for the day and send you on your way to see what the rest of the Confetti Crew has created to share with you today.  Don't forget that all new products will be available in the store tonight at midnight EST.
