Reverse Confetti October Mini Release


Yay! It's time! The October Mini Release from Reverse Confetti is LIVE! I couldn't be more excited! 

Up first, my two faves....the Gift Card Holder Cover Panel and Cookies & Milk. Oh, and the new sentiment set, Seasonal Says It All. I cut the Gift Card Holder twice, once from Premium Polar White and again from some pattern paper, Sweet as Sugar,  for the inside. I adhered them together and then folded along the perforation line. I created the front panel with the rounded rectangle cut from another design from the same paper pad. I added some sweet little images from Cookies & Milk and the sentiment from Seasonal Says it All. 



I added a gift card to the inside and when closed I tied it all up with some twine. It's perfect and can be customized for ANY occasion. 

Up next is the Star Ornament and I created a blue shaker ornament for a tree or a gift bag. I used the Star Ornament Confetti Cut to make the whole ornament, including the star cut out. I added accents with the Star Ornament stamp set. .  




The sentiment from Seasonal Says it All was stamped to the Three Tags Trio in Baby Blue ink. I added some ribbon and a blue bell and looped some silver twine through the opening of the orangment.

Countdown to Confetti Day 2

Surprise! Reverse Confetti had so much good stuff to share, they couldn't fit it all in on the September Release. So lucky us....we have a MINI RELEASE in October. We are on day two of the Countdown to Confetti. Release Day is TOMORROW!

Today I have a fun gift card or money gift giving option using the
Ornament Star set and coordinating Ornament Star Confetti Cut. It is so much fun to work with and it's large. It will be great to hang on your tree or clipped to a gift bag. 

I cut it three times, to create the base. I started with the sparkly one and layered on  Circle Rays Duo Confetti Cuts in Piggy Bank. I then stamped the giant star in Mist ink onto Premium Polar White ink and cut it out with the Ornament Star Confetti Cut



I then thought the Wreath of Joy would look beautiful layered on top. I used Mist, Iced Aqua, and RC Aqua to layer up that wreath. Here's a close up. 


I used the slot die from the Star Ornament Confetti Cut to create the perfect spot for some cash or a gift card. I also stamped the sentiment from Seasonal Says It All. I love this font and it is so fun to add just a touch of color too. I used my copics to make it match the colors on the front of the ornament.

Countdown to Confetti Day 1

Surprise! Reverse Confetti had so much good stuff to share, they couldn't fit it all in on the September Release. So lucky us....we have a MINI RELEASE in October. 



Now, let's jump into the REAL good stuff....like this adorable stamp set called Cookies & Milk. I am in love. There is this giant stamp with it's own little scene, but then there are LOTS of other bits and parts to make your own scene, to use on their own, or to build an even bigger scene. I stamped in Midnight ink and colored with copics and used the Cookies & Milk Confetti Cuts to cut it out along with those trees. 

The other star of this card is that new cover panel. It's called Gift Card Holder Cover Panel and it is so so cool! I used it here today as a card panel. I cut out the top panel with the rounded rectangle die included in the set. I was able to tuck in the Cookie & Milk scene as well as the trees and a little cloud from Cloudy Day Cover Panel


Then I used the same rounded rectangle die and cut a Sweet Stripes panel and stamped a sentiment from the Cookies & Milk stamp set in Midnight ink. I added in a few enamel dots to help fill the space. I Love this and can't wait to show you how else I use this die on release day. 


Check out what the rest of the team and some friends have created with this stamp set.

Hi, everyone! It's time for a new challenge! Barbara is here with our colors for this week. Remember, we're using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown: light blue, aqua, rust, and off white you'll be good...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun! And, feel free to incorporate any other neutrals you need in your design, as well. 

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD612and please use #ctd612 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog--all of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so check 'em out to be sure. Importantly, though, no digital designsonly digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up. 

These cute trick or treaters are ready for fun! I used this week's colors and the Spooktacular stamp set to add another Halloween card to my stash. 

I colored up the cuties with copics, in the challenge colors, cut them out with the matching Spooktacular Confetti Cuts and framed up the scene with All Framed Up

Reverse Confetti/ September Release is HERE

Yay! It's RELEASE DAY for Reverse Confetti and I couldn't be more excited. This release is so fabulous and it fills all those holiday desires and needs. It's full of beautiful stamps and Confetti Cuts. You are going to love it all. 


Don't forget about the FREE with PURCHASE set. 
Peace Tree. 



I was excited to color up the In All Things wreath with my copics. I combined the neutrals with pops of aqua and wine.  I pulled out a frosted pillow box and filled with some mixed nuts. I wrapped a piece of Sweet Stripes designer paper. After I cut out the wreath with the In All Things Confetti Cuts, I added it to the top of my box. 


I created a custom tag with Sand card stock and the sentiment from In All Things. I stamped it on RC Aqua ink. I rounded the corners and tied it on with some natural twine. 


So much to see! Come follow me to see all the design team members and guests.

Day 3/ Reverse Confetti/Countdown to Confetti

We are one sleep away from the big Holiday release from Reverse Confetti. This is our last day of the Countdown to Confetti and we have so much to share today. Don't forget to leave a comment 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.  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for the graphic pinned to the top of our feed…


This first card today makes me so happy. It has NO stamping and full of confetti cuts. It came together so easy and quickly. The new Wreath of Joy Confetti Cut is beautiful and so fun to layer up. I can't wait to try this with other color combos. Today I chose, Piggy Bank, Iced Aqua and Premium Polar White. 


I added in a panel of glittery white card stock for some shimmer, because all holiday card need shimmer. In the background I used the Layering Scallop Circles Cover Panel in Polar White card stock. They remind me of little snowflakes. 


My next card just might be my FAVORITE from this release. It's from the new Holiday Boughs stamp set, and I think it is beautiful. I colored it up with copics and used the Holiday Boughs Confetti Cuts to cut out each of the beautiful pieces. 


I stamped the sentiment in Midnight ink to the center of the card front. It's a wonderful holiday stamp set called Joyful Holiday Wishes. Here is a closer look. 


My final card was created with the stamp set you can get for FREE with purchase. It's so fun and totally worth it. It's called Peace Tree. You'll love it. I framed it up with the Center Frame Cover Panel
