CONFETTI CAMERA

By Jen del Muro
on August 20, 2015

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Thursday!

It’s an exciting day here in the del Muro household…it’s Meet the Teacher day at the kiddos’ school!  The kids are buzzing with excitement and I may just have a heel kick, too!  Here’s a fair warning of Back to School pics to be posted soon. *wink*

 . . . . .

And, here on the Reverse Confetti blog it’s time for Confetti Camera!

ConfettiCameraRCblog

A little bit about Confetti Camera…

In this weekly segment, one of the Confetti Crew designers will have the camera on both themselves, as a designer, and on their Reverse Confetti creations. For this round each of our designers will be coming up with a SET of something. You’ll see gift sets, card sets, pocket scrapping sets and much more this time around.

A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will follow the same theme until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member (then it’s a new round with new questions/theme). To see previous Confetti Camera post, simply click on “Confetti Camera” under the categories link on our sidebar.

. . . . .

In the spotlight this week is the super talented AMY KOLLING.  I’m happy that I get to call her friend, too!

So for this round of Confetti Camera, we are showing off the theme “Set ’em Up!”  Since my kids just started back to school last week, I know I’ll be needing small gifts for the teachers here and there.  What a better time to whip up a set of mini cards for the kid’s teachers!

Confetti Camera4

I started by die cutting a black cardstock “frame” using the Shakers ‘N Frames Confetti Cuts.  I love this set of dies and I probably won’t ever cut these 2 rounded squares apart simply because it keeps them evenly spaced for a perfect frame!  I’ve added the frame to a 3×3 white top folding card and trimmed the corners to be rounded like the frame.

 Confetti Camera3

There are several sentiments included in the Class Act stamp set, so I stamped these in Versafine Onyx Black ink inside the frame.  To finish these mini cards off, the apple was die cut using the Class Act Confetti Cuts with traditional primary colors and added to my card using foam adhesive.  As a final detail, a 6mm Peridot sequin was added to the edge of the leaf.

 Confetti Camera2

Now, you can’t give a set of cards without coordinating envelopes, can you?  Of course not!  I’ve stamped each envelope with stamps from Class Act.  For presentation, I’ve wrapped my set of 4 mini cards and envelopes with twine.  Now, it’s all ready to add to a gift basket for a handmade touch!

AUGUST CREATIVE HOP

By Jen del Muro
on August 08, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the AUGUST CREATIVE HOP!  If where you are is anything like here in North Texas, the mercury is on the rise.  Good thing we have lots (&  lots) of COOL inspiration to share with you today!

SummerFunHop

Of course, we have a little something up for grabs, too!  Just leave a comment on each of the blog hop posts and we’ll select a winner for a $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificate.  Comments are open through Monday at noon CST and we’ll announce the winner on Tuesday, August 11th.

There is a full list of hoppers towards the end of this post in case of any breaks, etc.

. . . . .

I have a couple of projects to share with you today.  This first one is a card that uses the very trendy PINEAPPLES APLENTY Confetti Cuts die along with the HELLO Confetti Cuts die…

PineappleHello

I created this 3d pineapple by cutting 4 of the pineapples from yellow patterned paper and 4 pineapple crowns from thin green cardstock.  I folded all the pineapples in half and adhered them to each other.  I then folded the crowns in half and adhered them to the pineapples.

Are you thinking, “How could this fit in an envelope?”  Easy, actually…the pineapple can be pressed flat to fit into an envelope!

Detail shot…

PineappleHello1

The “hello” sentiment is cut from the HELLO Confetti Cuts die in navy and white.  I slightly offset the white under the navy for a little depth and detail…

PineappleHello2

. . . . .

A couple of weeks ago, my kiddos went to grandma’s house in California.   While they were there I got a lot done around the new (to us) house and office. They got to have a little break from Mom & Dad and get spoiled by all the relatives there.  They enjoyed a few days spent at the beach (maybe I should have gone, too!). When I got a few of the pics from the beach days, I knew that I wanted to do something crafty with them (…or the only one that actually printed well).

I didn’t actually know how this project would end when I started.  First, I thought I’d do a frame with a couple of pocket cards.  Then, I thought that I would do a mini book. That idea went down the drain when I picked up the photos and realized that there was only one worth doing anything with.  Alas, I came across an old photo display (think Christmas from 5+ years ago in the dollar section at Michaels).  It’s a 2x2x2 wood block with a wire swirly doo-dad and it was perfect for this…

PhotoProject

Here’s a closer look at each of the pieces…

The base is covered in squares of patterned paper cut just under 2×2″.  I cut 2 strips of the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die and wrapped it around the bottom and embellished it with sequins and rhinestones.  I kept it simple, as I did not want it to distract from the photo display.

PhotoProject1

The journaled panel is cut from the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set and stamped with the RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW stamp set.  I love that I can stamp these in different colors to coordinate with my palette/theme…

PhotoProject4

The base of this panel is cut from the WOODGRAIN Confetti Cuts die.  The FABULOUS FLAMINGO (cut with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set) takes center stage on top of the GIVE THANKS LABEL panel.  I cut 2 suns from the SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set and topped it off with the button and linen thread…

PhotoProject3

One more shot of the entire cluster…

PhotoProject2

This was a super fun project to create!  I think I’ve said before that I don’t really scrapbook.  However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t love to preserve (and embellish) the pics of fun times.   I guess, for me, it’s best to think “outside the (scrap)book.”  How do you like to preserve your memories?

. . . . .

As you know this is just your very first stop in this fabulous hop!  The Confetti Crew and ‘Fetti Friends have a lot of summer inspired projects to share with you today.  So, kick back, grab that cuppa and happy hopping!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By Jen del Muro
on July 22, 2015

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

We have an awesome WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS for you today!

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS?

It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between. Today, Confetti Crew member, Amy Sheffer, has a colorful set of pocket scrapbooking cards that will kick start your creative for scrapbooking or cardmaking!

. . . . .

AmySIntroPic

As soon as I saw the Posted Note Sentiments stamp set, I thought how perfect many of the sentiments would be for pocket scrapbooking filler cards. I also pulled out a couple of other sentiment sets that work well for pocket scrapbooking: Shine From Within and God Is Good.

reverseconfetti_pocketscrapfillercards2

 I started out by watercoloring eight backgrounds and die-cutting them using the rounded rectangle die from Documented Confetti Cuts die set. Just shy of 3″ x 4″, this die is designed for pocket scrapbooking. (It’s also a great size for background panels on cards.)

 pocketscrap1_dreambig

This first one is super easy. After watercoloring and splattering, I just stamped the big sentiment from Shine From Within and clear embossed to make it extra crisp.

 pocketscrap2_sparkle

Here, I’ve white embossed the sentiment (also from Shine From Within) onto the watercolored Documented panel, then accented with clear sequins, silver star sequins, and some silver metallic embroidery floss.

 pocketscrap3_littlethings

I love how this one turned out! I adhered a white Geometric Background Confetti Cuts die-cut over the watercolor background, trimmed off the overhang, and embellished at the “intersections” with clear sequins. The sentiment, from Posted Note Sentiments, is stamped on vellum and white embossed, then machine-stitched to the card base.

 pocketscrap4_takenote

I just adore the Posted Note Confetti Cuts die set! Here, I added a faux chalkboard layer by die-cutting a second Posted Note rounded rectangle, trimming it down, and re-rounding the corners. (I trimmed the corners by hand.) I white embossed the sentiment (from Posted Note Sentiments), then used a sponge dauber to lightly smudge on some white pigment ink for the erased chalkboard look.

 pocketscrap5_Godisgood

For this first one in the red/pink/orange/yellow group, I stamped and white embossed a sentiment from God is Good onto a vellum flag that I die-cut using one of the dies from the Layered Banner Duo Confetti Cuts set. I machine-stitched it to the Documented die-cut and embellished with some enamel dots. Last, I added just a touch of gold metallic splatter.

 pocketscrap6_lovelifelivelife

Here, the sentiment (from Posted Note Sentiments) is white embossed onto the Documented die-cut. I embellished with some Star Garland Confetti Cuts and more enamel dots.

 pocketscrap7_greatday

On this one, the sentiment (from Posted Note Sentiments) is stamped in black pigment ink and clear embossed. I machine-stitched some messy circles around the sentiment and embellished with clear sequins.

 pocketscrap8_amazing

Last up is another sentiment from Posted Note Sentiments, again stamped on vellum, white embossed, machine-stitched to the Documented panel. This design leaves lots of open space for optional journaling.

 reverseconfetti_pocketscrapfillercards

That wraps up the collection. Hope you’re inspired to use your stamps and dies in your scrapbooking. And if you’re not a scrapbooker, all of these easily could be turned into cards just by adhering the panels to card bases.

It’s been a few Fridays since our last WEEK IN REVERSE, but we are back with it today.  Check out what the (amazing!) Confetti Crew has been up to this week…

First up is a totally Pinterest inspired product.  First, here is one of my inspiration pics…

Photo credit

I wasn’t searching out anything when a few items like this came across my feed and I looked at them and thought that it would be a fun thing to make…and then…**lightbulb moment**

And, a new die set was born.  Introducing…

POSTED NOTE

CC_PostedNoteProductGraphics

This 4 piece die set contains a rounded rectangle that is the “board,” as well as a decorative stand (with debossing lines), a finial (also with debossing lines) and a clip (again, with a detailed debossing line).

We’ve also created a sentiment set that pairs perfectly with the POSTED NOTE Confetti Cuts die set (or it can be used on its own). Introducing…

POSTED NOTE SENTIMENTS

PostedNoteSentimentsProductGraphic

. . . . .

I see so many possibilities with these 2 products!

My first card today has the POSTED NOTE Confetti Cuts die set paired with the “thanks so very much” sentiment from the coordinating sentiment set.

PostedCard

After I cut the rectangle from kraft cardstock, I placed it in the center of the new WOODGRAIN Confetti Cuts die to get the woodgrain debossing detail.  I love how this looks!

WoodgrainProductGraphic

Detail shot…

PostedDetail1

To create the look of a piece of paper from a notebook, I used the perforated line die from the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts die set.  My finishing touch on this card is the leaves (FRESH ‘N FRUITY Confetti Cuts die set) along with the large orange rhinestone.  I love the pop of color that it gives!

PostedDetail

. . . . .

My lil’ guy is headed to Kindergarten in the fall (say it ain’t so).  I think I’ll keep this cute notecard set on hand to give to his teacher on the first day…

TakeNoteSet

I created 6 of these 4.25″ square cards and they came together in a jiffy…and you know me and my dislike for mass production!  It was so fun and easy that I may just have to make another set for my daughter’s teacher.

Detail shot showing debossing feature on the POSTED NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  The sentiment, from POSTED NOTE SENTIMENTS, is stamped on a paper that I had stamped with the notebook image from CLASS ACT in light blue…

TakeNoteSet1

. . . . .

There’s even more to see today!

Introducing…

YOU ARE A STAR

YouAreAStarProductGraphic

And the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

CC_YouAreAStarProductGraphic

I just LOVE this stamp set (and the dies, too, of course).  I made 2 cards the first time I sat down and played with it.

The stars with the “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” sentiment take center stage on this card.  They are mounted on a frame created with the SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set.

TwinkleCard1

Detail shots…

TwinkleCard1detail1

TwinkleCard1detail

. . . . .

As you can see, this second card was created with many of the same materials as the first.  I usually clean up my desk after each creation to start fresh, but I was having fun with what was in front of me (plus I had cut 3 additional stars) and I just went with it.

TwinkleCard2

Detail shot of the stars dangling by linen thread…

TwinkleCard2detail

Although I was tempted, I decided to forgo the sequins and rhinestones on this card as I didn’t want them getting bumped off by the movement of the stars.

Let’s celebrate our birthday with a little ice cream!

Introducing…

LOVE & ICE CREAM

LoveAndIceCreamProductGraphic

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

LoveAndIceCreamCCProductGraphic

. . . . .

This is such a fun set!  If you have the DONUT YOU KNOW stamps and Confetti Cuts dies, you can see that the fonts and such are very similar.  I knew when I did the donuts that I wanted to do more sets in that same style.  And, yes, that may just be a hint for upcoming goodies, too!

My first project today is a tag featuring the new LOVE AND ICE CREAM stamps and Confetti Cuts…

Scoops2

The LOVE AND ICE CREAM Confetti Cuts die set features a scoop of ice cream, cone, cup, 2 piece cherry, spoon and a super duper fancy squiggly line.  Say what?  What in the world is that squiggly line for?…to make toppings!

Here’s a quick visual…

Cut a scoop of ice cream out of cardstock in the color of your choosing/topping.  I am making hot fudge here.  Place the squiggly line across the scoop.

IceCream2Cut

Now, run this through your die cutting machine.

IceCreamCut

Viola…ice cream topping!

Scoops

I added some Stickles for a little sparkle.  I love how it turned out!

The spoon was cut from gray cardstock and tied off with kraft colored linen thread to coordinate with the kraft cup (which I ran through my corrugating press).

I topped it with a red heart cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set.  The tag is cut from the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts set.

Scoops1

. . . . .

My next project is a clean and simple card using the new LOVE AND ICE CREAM stamps and Confetti Cuts dies.  I kept wanting to add more to this card, but finally I decided to leave it as shown…I’m glad I did!

IC

For this card, I created an ice cream cone topped with a cherry mounted on circles cut from the (previously released) CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shots…

IC2

I coordinated the pink scoop of ice cream with the pink patterned paper.  I had more layers going on at one point and then decided that I just need to keep it simple.

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By Jen del Muro
on April 14, 2015

Hello and Happy Tuesday ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s  TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY and I have a super fun and easy card to share with you that uses some of the new April release goodies.

What kind of cards to you send?  For me aside from holidays, it’s birthday, friend/hello, thank you and sympathy for the most part.  I love sending a card just to send one and I know that the person on the other end gets a smile from it.  Seriously, when is the last time you got snail mail “just because?”

This card is the perfect card for just that “occasion…”

HelloNote

I stamped the word “hello” from the new COLOR ME HAPPY stamp set on the lined card from the Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANELS. Then layered it with a white die cut from the HELLO Confetti Cuts die.  It needed just a little something, so I added the banner/flag from the new LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts set and stitched across.

I added that panel to a card base that I had already adhered patterned paper and gray cardstock to and viola…easy peasy “just because” hello card…

I have had so much fun playing with this release and I just know that you are going to love creating with it, too!

My first project I have to share with you today is a tassel garland that I created using the new TASSEL Confetti Cuts die…

TassleGarland

Needless to say, not only have I had a little bit of fun creating with this new Confetti Cuts die, but I have also had a blast shopping for tissue paper.  Imagine my jaw dropping when I saw this gorgeous gold “tissue” paper at Michaels just after I picked up the black and white stripey one at Target.  I could not get home fast enough to make this!

Detail shot…

TassleGarlandDetail

. . . . .

This next card that I have to share with you uses the same color palette.  I have to admit that was not planned at all.  Apparently, my subconscious knew what it was doing when it kept me reaching for these colors!

GeometricHello

This card features the new GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die along with the new HELLO Confetti Cuts die.

I cut the GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND from a piece of white cardstock and then adhered it to a white cardstock base.  I then cut it from gold shimmer cardstock and filled in the triangles on the one adhered to the card base.

The HELLO Confetti Cuts die is cut from a couple of pieces of black cardstock and layered for a little extra depth.

GeometricHelloDetail

As evident from many of my release projects, I just can’t keep away from the sequins!  I layered 2 sizes and topped them off with an enamel flatback pearl here as my finishing touch to this card.

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: Leaping Lions and Pineapples Aplenty

By Jen del Muro
on April 05, 2015

Greetings and Happy Easter, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s DAY ONE of our sneak peeks, or as we like to call them…THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  On April 8th we are release 5 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts die sets and a new *limited edition* set of QUICK CARD PANELS!

Are you wondering why in the world we are starting our Countdown to Confetti on Easter Sunday?  Well, we always kick off our sneak peeks on the 5th and since this is not a physical event we chose to go ahead and keep truckin’ along like we always do.

ConfettiCountdown

Just a note…all of our releases will happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month.  We generally release new product every other month.  This is a special release, as April is usually a non-release month for us. We’ll still be hopping on the 8th, whether there is a release or not.  Just remember, “Eight is Great!”

. . . . .

Don’t forget to leave a comment here and on each sneak peek post this week for a chance to win!

In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion (starting at 9am EST today).  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic pinned to the top of our feed…

NextRelease

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on April 7th will be randomly chosen to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Winners for both the blog comments and Facebook comments will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog as well as on Facebook.

. . . . .

Alright, ‘Fetti Fans, you know the drill…grab that cuppa, sit back and enjoy all the Confetti Creativity we have for you today!

. . . . .

Before I dive right into all the projects I have to share with you today, I just wanted to tell you a little bit about this special release.  As you know, April is usually one of our non-release months.  So, why have a release on a non-release month?  At CHA in January I had so much fun seeing all the creativity, trends and spirit of this industry.  There’s something about being surrounded by creative people, I guess!  It really helped my ideas flow and pretty soon my sketchbook was overflowing for ideas for (a few) upcoming releases.  So here we are, on Easter Sunday, kicking off a special Countdown to Confetti for our April release.  A couple of the Confetti Crew Design Team members have hailed this as “the best release ever.”  I hope you think so, too!

. . . . .

First, I’d like to introduce the new *limited edition*

Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANELS

PinaColadaQCP_April15ProductGraphic

QUICK CARD PANELS are limited edition premium heavyweight cardstock panels measuring 3.25″ x 4.5″.  Each package contains 2 of each 8 printed design.  They are designed for A2 card making, but you can easily use them on all of your paper crafting projects!  We will have a new set of QUICK CARD PANELS with each release. Grab them while you can, because once they’re gone, they’re gone!

You’ll see the new limited edition QUICK CARD PANELS used on a variety of projects from the Confetti Crew.  We can’t wait to see how you will use them on your creations!

. . . . .

One of prominent themes that I noticed at CHA this year was party and DIY fun!  Lots of banners and decor ideas swirled in my head and soon these 2 new Confetti Cuts die sets were born…

TASSEL Confetti Cuts

LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts

And then, I made this…

Banner1

Detail shot of the TASSEL Confetti Cuts on each end…

Banner1Tassle

The TASSEL Confetti Cuts die is best used with tissue paper.  I took one sheet and folded it several times and then ran the die through my Big Shot. I then folded it over the piece of string the banner is strung on and “fluffed” it up. To secure it over the string, there is a piece of baker’s twine wrapped and tied around the top of the die cut (below where it is folded over string).

The LAYERED BANNER DUO features 2 different shapes of banners: rectangles and triangles.  As the title of the set suggest, you can layer these.  You can also use the smaller shape to cut out the center of the larger coordinating shape, creating a frame, like I did with the white panels here…

Banner1Layers

Also used on this banner are the previously released CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS and LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die sets.  The letters are foam letter stickers.

. . . . .

Have you noticed that pineapples seem to be popping up everywhere these days?  It’s a fresh and fun trend and I couldn’t resist turning them into stamps and Confetti Cuts dies!

Introducing…

PINEAPPLES APLENTY

PineapplesAplentyProductGraphic

and the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

PineapplesAplentyCCProductGraphic

My first card today features the new PINEAPPLES APLENTY stamp and Confetti Cuts die set, as well as the new Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANELS (and another  Confetti Cuts die set that I will introduce in just a moment).

Pineapples1card

The PINEAPPLES APLENTY Confetti Cuts die set features a full pineapple and a separate crown for layering.  Here’s a shot of the layered crown, along with the green flag ended panels cut from the new LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts die set…

Pineapples1card_detail2

The pineapple QUICK CARD PANEL and kraft panels (stamped with WHOLE LOTTA DOTS) are both cut from the new…

SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts

ShakersNFramesCCProductGraphic

I absolutely LOVE this Confetti Cuts die set.  It’s great for layering, like I did here.  And, as it’s name suggests, it’s perfect for making shakers and frames (I’ll get to that a little later in this post).

One last detail shot of this card…

Pineapples1card_detail1

. . . . .

My next card is a lot more clean and simple (CAS) and also features the new PINEAPPLES APLENTY stamp and dies…

CASPineapples1

The textured white layer was created using embossing paste and stencil.  I’m kind of wishing that I would have thought to make my own on this card, too…more on that later in this post.

Again, I layered the crown.  I also added twine and a sequin for a fun little added detail…

CASPineapples1_detail

Here’s one more detail shot of this card.  I just love this sentiment!

CASPineapples1_detail2

. . . . .

I am so stinkin’ excited about this release!  Can you believe I even have  a couple of more introductions for today!?!

First up is a great new addition to create awesome detail your paper crafting projects.

GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts

GeometricBackgroundProductGraphic

This Confetti Cuts die is smaller than A2 size making it perfect for layering.  It’s also great on it’s own or as a stencil, as hinted to above.

To create a stencil from the GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die, simply cut it from acetate and use with embossing paste.  I used translucent embossing paste on a piece of pattern paper with my homemade GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts stencil here…

DIYstencil

You’ll see how I used it on my card below…after a couple of more introductions!

Joining their puppy and birdie friends, I introduce to you…

LEAPING LIONS

LeapingLionsProductGraphic

Does it get any cuter?  I love the lions in this set and you can really make them  your own with the added tummy, face and tail detail stamps that are included.

And the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

LeapingLionsCCProductGraphic

Here’s my card using these cuties along with the paper shown above…

LL_Card

I really wish you could reach in your computer and touch this card!…lots of fun textures happening!

Here’s a shot of all the added details, including the banner and lion (check out the stripes and polka dots he’s “wearing”).

LL_Card_detail

. . . . .

One last card and then I’m sending you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew did with all these new goodies being introduced today!

This card also features the new LEAPING LIONS stamp and Confetti Cuts dies.  I’ve made a shaker using the new SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set.  In addition, I have also used the scalloped rectangle banner, 2 of them actually, from the new LAYERED BANNER DUO as a panel…

LLCard2

For the pink banners above the lions, I cut out the banner from the LEAPING LIONS Confetti Cuts die set, but did not stamp the outline stamp on it.  Instead, I just used the lined detail.  I love the look of this!

LLCard2Detail

Inside the shaker, I used the confetti that comes with in the SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set along with some itsy bitsy sequins.

LLCard2Detail1

. . . . .

That’s all I have for today, but all of the Confetti Crew and ‘Fetti Friends are sharing their creations with you, too.
