You will notice a “support design, not crime” watermark on all of Reverse Confetti’s new designs as we are discouraging the blatant theft of our original artwork.  YES, we know that it's ugly and we apologize that this may block part of the product graphic.  Note, this is only a watermark and is not part of the product or packaging.  We appreciate your support and understanding as we fight piracy of our products.

This release is FULL of great seasonal stamps and Confetti Cuts dies, but today we are featuring a couple every day products.  The first time I saw the artwork for the first set, my jaw dropped and my heart was all aflutter!  Isn't this set amazing?!?

 

PEONY

 

Coordinating Confetti Cuts...

We have another FABULOUS sentiment set coming out this month, too!

 

SENTIMENTALLY YOURS

 . . . . .

As soon as I got the PEONY set, I reached for my CLOUD WHITE cardstock so that I could watercolor this gorgeous flower and greenery.  I used Zig watercolor brush pens to color this peony.

I then stamped the large leaves on LEAD cardstock and colored them with Polychromos.  I love how the green pops off of the dark background. 

I added some "shading" by tracing the outlines of the leaves with a Copic marker (dark gray - can't remember the exact number).  The sentiment, from the new SENTIMENTALLY YOURS stamp set, is stamped in MIDNIGHT ink in the upper left corner.  I added layered sequins as a finishing touch.

For a little more dimension and detail, I cut gold cardstock with the peony die and layered it, slightly offset, under the colored Peony image.  It's such a pretty detail!

 

. . . . .

Before I get to my next card, I want to introduce our latest cover panel die.  I think you're gonna love how versatile and detailed it is!

 

STITCHED CIRCLES COVER PANEL

Anyone that knows me, knows that I don't always do things the obvious way.  It's not necessarily the wrong way, but just something a little different. 

When I was working on this next card using the new PEONY and SENTIMENTALLY YOURS stamp sets, it needed a little something.  I had cut a STITCHED CIRCLE Cover Panel from PREMIER POLAR WHITE and it was sitting on top of some of the LEAD cardstock that I had left over from the card above.  After playing around a little, I ended up cutting it down and using it as a design detail just in the corner of this card...

Both the flower and leaves are colored again with my Zigs on CLOUD WHITE cardstock.

I really do like the added detail that the STITCHED CIRCLES Cover Panel gives to this card.

The sentiment is stamped in MIDNIGHT on PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock that has a simple LEAD cardstock layer under it.

. . . . .

I have one more card to share with you before I sent you on your way to see what the incredible Confetti Crew and our 'Fetti Friends have come up with using these new release goodies (you may even see some more sneak peeks, too!).

I love playing with the different colors of our cardstocks and inks, so I grabbed a bunch to create a rainbow card with this sweet sentiment.

Colors used:  Salsa, Flamingo, Tangerine, Sunshine, Lime Green, Navy and Grape Soda.

The sentiment strips are popped up on dimensional adhesive.

Having fun taking pics...

. . . . .

Now it's time for me to send you along to see what everyone has created (hint: it's all awesome!).  Don't forget to leave a little love in the form of a comment for a chance to win!
