We're 8 years into this wild adventure and I think you know the drill...grab that cuppa, sit back and enjoy all of our reveals for today!
This release is chock full of great stamps, Confetti Cut dies and the return of the 6x6 paper pad...

HELLO HOLIDAYS

As you can see, there is a little bit of this (Halloween) and a little bit of that (fall colors and Christmas patterns) in this pad.  These new pads contain 24 sheets of 80# uncoated printed cardstock.
The first stamp set I want to share with you today is the latest addition of our "critter" stamps, as you all have so cutely dubbed them.

BOO DAY

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
In addition to these stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts dies, we have a couple fantastic stand alone Confetti Cuts dies to share with you today!  First up is the newest tag die that we are adding to our collection...

CIRCLE WITH BURST TAG

This is a 2 piece Confetti Cuts die set that features a round tag with a tab plus a stitched burst detail that can be used to cut a window or to layer.
Next up in our reveals is a really unique Confetti Cuts die that you can use on its own or layer it with the CIRCLE WITH BURST TAG Confetti Cuts (I literally cannot stop doing this, as you'll see!)

LARGE DETAILED CIRCLE FRAME

We also have a couple of new word dies that are part of this release and the word of the day is...

LAYERED BOO

I know that I have said it before, but I'll say it again...

I LOVE HALLOWEEN!

It is by far my most favorite holiday to create for and when the new product came in, I was so excited to create Halloween projects first.
I have become a little obsessed with the new CIRCLE WITH BURST TAG Confetti Cuts die set and have made "a few" tags in the last few weeks, including all of these...
There are basically two different designs here.  The first is the personalized tags for my neighbor's niece and nephew...
I started with a CIRCLE WITH BURST TAG cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  From there, I layered the new LARGE DETAILED CIRCLE FRAME cut from MIDNIGHT cardstock. When you cut the LARGE DETAILED CIRCLE FRAME, you get a center that has what I will refer to as an inverted scallop.  That is what the next layer is, popped up on dimensional adhesive.  On Addy's it is LIME GREEN and on Will's it is TANGERINE.
I used the opposite colors for the burst that is layered next.
From there, I added the cute lil' ghostie that is stamped on PREMIER POLAR WHITE.  As you can see, I added a little shadow with my Copic marker (BV31).
Both of their names are cut from ICED AQUA cardstock with letter from the LETTER CUTS Confetti Cuts die set.  I cut each latter 3x and layered them for dimension.  The letters are adhered to a piece of GRAPE SODA cardstock that is stamped with the dots from the BACKGROUND BUILDER stamp set, also in the color GRAPE SODA.  That strip is attached with dimensional adhesive.
Finally, I added the "happy boo day" sentiment (PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and MIDNIGHT ink). On Addy's, I added a few purple sequins but I left those off of Will's.
Finally, I added black sparkly ribbon with a button and some black and white twine to the tops of the tags.
. . . . .
Before I jump into the other tags, let me first introduce you to our newest sentiment set...

HALLOWEEN SENTIMENTS

The other tag design incorporates the new CIRCLE WITH BURST TAG, LARGE DETAILED CIRCLE FRAME and LAYERED BOO Confetti Cuts along with the new BOO DAY stamps and Confetti Cuts dies.  I also used cuts from the previously released CIRCLE RAYS DUO Confetti Cuts die set.
Both of these have the same base design:
CIRCLE RAYS DUO Confetti Cuts cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock
CIRCLE WITH BURST TAG Confetti Cuts cut from TANGERINE cardstock (with the burst cut from center)
LARGE DETAILED CIRCLE FRAME Confetti Cuts cut from MIDNIGHT cardstock.
They also both have spiderwebs stamped and cut from the BOO DAY stamp and Confetti Cuts die set, along with the LAYERED BOO front and center.  On each of the LAYERED BOO cuts, I did something a little different.  I used elements from the BACKGROUND BUILDER stamp set to stamp and emboss detail on each.  One has the solid line and the other has the dots.
Each of the tags has its own sentiment, as well.  These are from the new HALLOWEEN SENTIMENTS stamp set and they are stamped in MIDNIGHT ink on LIME GREEN cardstock.
. . . . .
In addition to these tags, I enjoyed sitting down and creating this card using the sweet lil' kitty and spider images from the new BOO DAY stamps and Confetti Cuts die set...
I started with a card base created from CLOUD WHITE cardstock.  From there, I layered the LARGE DETAILED CIRCLE FRAME cut from MIDNIGHT cardstock and popped up on dimensional adhesive.
Behind the images are 2 strips of paper cut from the new HELLO HOLIDAY 6x6 paper pad.  These are also popped up on dimensional adhesive and the sentiment from the HALLOWEEN SENTIMENTS stamp set is stamped below them on the card base.
The "BOO" sentiment is from the new BOO DAY stamp set and is stamped in MIDNIGHT INK on CLOUD WHITE cardstock.  The kitty images are stamped on CLOUD WHITE cardstock and watercolored with Karin brushmarkers.  The spider/web is colored with Copics.  For a finishing touch, I added a few of my favorite sequins to give the card a little texture and sparkle.
. . . . .

And, that's a wrap for me! Well, for today at least. I'll see you back here tomorrow with lots of Fall/Thanksgiving goodies to share.

There's lots more to see from the Confetti Crew and our 'Fetti Friends.  Be sure to leave a little love (comments) along the way for a chance to win some money to spend in the Reverse Confetti shop.  Now, head on out to see what the rest of the crew has created to share with you today...
