This release is full of all things Halloween, Fall and Christmas.  Today, we are focusing on the new Christmas goodies that are part of this release.  Do you like to create cards and gifts ahead of the holidays like me?  I like to have a small stash of cards that I can send out without being stressed to get them done and in the mail by mid-December.
The first reveal that I have for you today is a joyful new stand alone die...

WREATH OF JOY

This die set cuts out the word "JOY" with the "O" being a wreath.  Also included in this set are layering elements and stitched detail leaves - 10 leaves get cut all at once!
I am not one for mass production, but when I have a design that I like and it's not to complicated to reproduce, I will make a few of the same card.  Like this one, using the new WREATH OF JOY Confetti Cuts die set...
The base of this card measures 4" x4" square and is cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE.  From there, I layered a 3.5" square of PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock with AVOCADO cardstock and adhered it to the card base with dimensional adhesive.
The large "JOY" was cut from ICED AQUA cardstock.  I then layered the large wreath in ROSE cardstock and stamped the J and the Y with the solid stripe in the BACKGROUND BUILDER stamp set in ROSE ink.
The stitched detail leaves are cut from AVOCADO and LIME GREEN cardstock and are adhered to the JOY base layer.  Finally, I added the "Happy Holidays" sentiment in MIDNIGHT ink on a strip of PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock. The sentiment is from a set that I will be revealing here in just a sec. 
I just love this color combo and how this card turned out.
. . . . .
The reveals keep on coming!  We have a new artist working with us and this is her debut stamp set...

HOLIDAY BOUGH

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
To go along with this gorgeous set, we also created a holiday sentiment set...

JOYFUL HOLIDAY WISHES

Here, I've combined the HOLIDAY BOUGH stamps and Confetti Cuts with the JOYFUL HOLIDAY WISHES stamps and the new CIRCLE RAYS DUO...
Black (MIDNIGHT) isn't a color I would normally find myself reaching for with holiday themed cards, but I love the elegance that it brings to this card.
The images are stamped on PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and then colored with Copic markers.  I then cut the images out with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set and then layered another cut of MIDNIGHT under it, just slightly offset.
Under the images and sentiment, stamped in MIDNIGHT ink, is the large circle from the new CIRCLE RAYS DUO Confetti Cuts set (cut in half).  As a finishing touch, I added a few sequins for just that perfect amount of sparkle.

Before I send you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew and Friends have to share with you today, I have one final reveal.  It's actually one that you probably have seen over the last few days on some of the Confetti Crew posts.  You know we love tags around here and I couldn't let the holiday release go without a fun new tag...

FOLD OVER WINDOW TAG

For my final project today, I've combined it with the new HOLIDAY BOUGH and JOYFUL HOLIDAY WISHES sets to dress up some plain kraft envelopes I had in my stationery stash...
I cut three tags out of CLOUD WHITE cardstock and then stamped the poinsettia in STONE ink.  I then came back and traced around the images in Copic BV32 and then took the Copic Blender to smooth out the edges.  This gives the poinsettia images just a little bit of shadow/dimension on the tag.

 

The sentiments are stamped in MIDNIGHT ink on the circle that the tag cut out.  It is adhered to the inside of the tag.  I then stamped and watercolored the single poinsettia and greenery images and layered them on each of the tags.  Finally, I attached them to the envelopes with black and white twine...

The Confetti Crew and our special 'Fetti Friends have lots of holiday goodness to share with you today.  We'll be announcing our comment winner later today and then just a little bit after that, all of the new goodies will be available in the Reverse Confetti store (midnight EST, to be exact).
