THE COUNTDOWN IS ON!
Hello, 'Fetti Family!  I hope that you all are having a lovely and relaxing week (no stress, right?).  Let's put all of the election business to the side and concentrate on what we love...stamping and card making!  Today is the first day of our COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI for our November release.  This is our final release of the year and, I think you'll agree, we saved some of the best for last.  This release contains 6 stamp sets and 8 Confetti Cuts die sets and I think that you are going to love them all!  We have lots to share with you today.  There's a full list of our Confetti Crew and 'Fetti Friends at the bottom of this post.  Be sure to leave them a little love for a chance to win!

Are you ready?
Here we go!
 The first set I want to share with you is a hand drawn set and it contains everyday use images.

BOTANICAL

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
This elegant set pairs so well with our new sentiment set, too...

MIXED MESSAGES

There's a little bit of everything in this stamp set, making it versatile and something that you will use all year round.
Before I get to my first project of the day, I want to share with you 2 new Cover Panel that layer together perfectly and can also be used on their own.

PLAID LINES - BIG

PLAID LINES - SMALL

Today, I used these 2 independently, but you're sure to see some examples of them together from the Confetti Crew/'Fetti Friends and I, of course, will be using them in tandem later in the week.
This first card features the Plaid Lines- Big along with the new Botanical stamps and Confetti Cuts dies...
The card base is cut from Cloud White Cardstock, as is the Plaid Lines - Big panel, which is also mounted on dimensional adhesive.
From there, I stamped the sentiment from the new Mixed Messages stamp set in Midnight Ink and then layered that on another square of Cloud White cardstock.
I stamped, colored (Karin brush markers) and cut out 8 of the floral stem images and layered them behind the sentiment panel and then mounted it all with 2x tall dimensional adhesive.  I used double the adhesive because this panel is actually mounted in between the squares and onto the card base.
. . . . .
My next card features the Plaid Lines - Small panel along with the Botanical stamps and Confetti Cuts dies.  On this card, I did a little no line coloring by stamping the image in Stone ink first and then coloring it with Karin brush markers.
Again, I used Cloud White cardstock to cut the card base and the Plaid Lines - Small panel.  With the center focal panel, it kind of turns into a frame of sorts on this card (I'm totally loving that!)
The sentiment, from the new Mixed Messages stamp set, is stamped in Midnight ink on Cloud White cardstock and adhered in front of the vase.
Next up in the November line up is a beautiful hand drawn set that is so incredibly fun and easy to make a scene with...
HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
You'll be seeing more of this new Confetti Cuts die set in the days to come, but I wanted to go ahead and introduce it today...

AWAY IN THE MANGER

For my first card using this set, I again started with a Cloud White cardstock base.  From there, I stamped the tree image in Stone ink and the sentiment from the Peace Tree set (FREE with qualifying purchase) in Navy ink.  The edges of this panel are slightly distressed.
I stamped each of the house images in white pigment ink on Navy cardstock and then mounted them on the snow drift panels that I hand cut and added snowy glitter to.
The star on this image comes from the new Away in the Manger Confetti Cuts die set.  I cut 2 from Cloud White cardstock and then brushed on Ivory Seashell Nuvo drops to give it just a little touch of shimmer.  For a finishing touch, I added mini sequins around the star.
I have one more card to share with you today using the new Home for the Holidays stamps.  I gave this one a bit of a fall twist...
I stamped the trees multiple times in Midnight ink on Cloud White cardstock and then used an array of autumnal colors (Karin brush markers) to color them.  I added a very slight shadow on the right side of each tree my taking a light gray Copic marker and outlining that side.
I stamped the sentiment, from the new Mixed Messages stamp set, in Midnight ink and layered it and mounted it on top of the tree stamped panel.
. . . . .
Ok, that's all I have to share with you today.  I look forward to seeing you back here tomorrow.  Below is a list of all the amazing designers that will be sharing lots of beautiful projects with you today (trust me, I've seen them - AMAZING is the only way to describe them!).
