Countdown to Confetti-April Release Day 1


I am so excited to kick things off today for the April Reverse Confetti release. We have a 3 day Countdown to Confetti hop followed with the April Release on the 8th! Remember 8 is Great! You will Love it, and I am so glad you are here to check it out. 

Jen as all the info over on the RC Blog. Be sure to stop by there to read all about it and to see her gorgeous creations! 

Don't forget, to leave comments on the DT Blogs and on theReverse Confetti FB page for a chance to win one of 2 RC Gift Certificates. 

I have 2 cards to share with the new All Apples set. It's perfect timing for all the end of the year, teacher appreciation cards and gifties. I made one teacher card and one any occasion card. I also wanted to show off the awesome new Bitty Banners on both cards. Love it! You will too. You'll notice lots of other new goodies, too! Let's jump in. 


First up is my teacher card. I started with the solid rectangle in black from the Insta-Frame Confetti Cuts. I am super excited about his basic die shape. I will be using it lots! I then added some fun texture with the newest Double Panel Circles Confetti Cut. I cut two and added them side by side. I stamped one of the solid All Apples stamps and a few stems and leaves and then used the All Apples confetti cut  to cut out the stamped parts. See the tiny hearts apple? That was cut from the April Quick Card Panel-School Days. I finished off the apples with some solid twine in 



How cool is that sweet little banner? It's from the Bitty Banner stamp set and there are two dies in the coordinating Bitty Banner Confetti Cut set.....they layer up perfectly!! I squealed with excitement when I cut these the first time. Crafting made easy! 

I used the Bitty Banner again on this next card, too. This time I didn't layer up the Bitty Banners Confetti Cut.   I paired hello banner with the alphabet apple from All Apples and stamped them in a row in a fun color combo. 



Keeping the design Clean & Simple, I layered some polka dots and set off the apple panel with the most adorable pinking edge ever! The Edge Essentials is an awesome new die set. I can't wait to show you more in the coming days. 



That's it from me today. Here is a closer look at the new products I used today. 














Don't forget to leave comments along the way

  7. Two beautiful cards which I adore for different reasons. I love the black, green, red and white colour combination on the first because you it's been done beautifully and it just works. The colours work together and every detail is perfectly matched. Then we have a CAS card and I love those too, the little zig zag border at the bottom makes it really pop beautifully and perfectly. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous creations and inspirations and for a fab blog hop too Karen x
