As you know, 2017 was a #beastmode year for me.  A lot of that energy was directed to getting healthy and basically treading the water of day to day life.  That didn’t leave a lot of creative energy for me to work with and for the last half of the year, many designers were blogging here while my creative mojo and my energy re-booted.   I am happy to say that I AM BACK to creating like I used to and I am so excited to share my projects with you for the release!

So, you know the drill…sit back, enjoy that cuppa and enjoy all the Confetti Creativity we have for you today (and we have A LOT!).

First up in our introductions is the new 6×6 Paper Pad…

FOREVER MY LOVE

Coordinating Confetti Colors for FOREVER MY LOVE are: Navy, Peach, Coral, Seafoam, Sand, Dark Roast, Lagoon

. . . . .

Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it and we have the perfect sentiment set for all of your Heart Day celebrations…

HEART FILLED SENTIMENTS

Before I get to my first project using a bunch of these sentiments, let me share with you one of my new favorite Confetti Cuts dies…

FALLING HEARTS PANEL

For my first project that I will be sharing with you, I created a set of cards using both the HEART FILLED SENTIMENTS and FALLING HEARTS PANEL Confetti Cuts…

To begin this card, I cut the FALLING HEARTS PANEL from both PIGGY BANK and SALSA cardstock.  I offset the two colors and adhered them together using dimensional adhesive.

Each of the cards has a different sentiment stamped in MIDNIGHT ink.  I “dressed up” the sentiment panel by adding a banner layer (cut from MIDNIGHT cardstock) and an ICED AQUA cut of the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.  I used the small side on 2 of the cards and the large side on the other 2 cards.  I added 2 hearts cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set (SALSA and PIGGY BANK).  To finish it off, I added a double bow of CHARCOAL striped twine.

Here’s a shot of all 4 sentiments that I used…

. . . . .

Next up on our introductions today is a set that will be a go-to, for sure!  Especially for upcoming graduation and wedding season, but it really can be used for so much more…

CONGRATULATIONS

We love this set!  So much so that we created TWO Confetti Cuts dies to coordinate with it…

The CONGRATULATIONS Confetti Cuts die set has the coordinating cuts for the images in the CONGRATULATIONS stamp set, plus a “bonus” confetti swirl.

We also created a 4.25″ square panel to go with this stamp set, making it even more versatile and fun to play and work with…

CONGRATS SQUARE PANEL

The CONGRATS SQUARE PANEL Confetti Cuts die can also be used on its own.

. . . . .

You know when you sketch out a card/project and then when you go to create it, it looks nothing like what you had in your mind?  It happens all the time to me.  BUT NOT HERE!  I had pretty much just this image in my head and sketched it out.  Needless to say, I was pretty tickled (ok, so flippin’ happy) when it all came out just how I wanted it to.

I stamped the “Congratulations” sentiment and then added a complementing sentiment 3x and then added the fish tails (NAVY cardstock) which I sewed onto the card panel.

The “Congratulations” sentiment is stamped in NAVY ink and the other sentiments are stamped in LAGOON and LIME GREEN ink, respectively.  I wanted to highlight “we’re so proud of you,” so I added the coordinating cardstock strips across the back of this sentiment.

To embellish, I added a star stamped in SUNSHINE ink on SUNSHINE cardstock and then added the confetti swirls (ICED AQUA cardstock).

For a finishing touch, I added a sequin and clear acrylic dot atop the stars.

. . . . .

My hubs says that this next card is his favorite of the ones that I have made for this release (so far, a few more things to make still)…

For this card, I used a 4.25″ square card base and then layered a piece of STONE cardstock and then a SMALL DIAMOND TILES COVER PANEL in PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  From there, I cut the CONGRATS SQUARE PANEL from STONE cardstock and stamped “and best wishes” in MIDNIGHT ink.

I then cut the CONGRATS SQUARE PANEL from MIDNIGHT cardstock and trimmed off the word and layered it, offset, behind.  And, then I popped it up on top using dimensional adhesive  Here’s a pic from when I was working on it…

From there, I stamped the heart from the CONGRATULATIONS set in CORAL and FLAMINGO ink and added them to the card.

Now, I just need a wedding or anniversary party to go to give this card away.

Ok, it’s time for me to send you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew has been up to with these new goodies!  Don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance to win!
