This first card from me, just might be my favorite from this release. I LOVE the new Big Flowers Cover Panel, the stitching detail is beautiful.  I started with some ink blending in the background on the card base. I then Cut the Big Flowers Cover Panel from Premium Polar White card stock and used foam dots to pop it up. 

These are the ink colors I used: Rose, Buttercup, Peach, Parakeet, Iced AquaAbyss, and Royal Purple for my background, and used the same blues to ink up the You Confetti Cuts. I love the outline layer with these word dies. I finished the sentiment with a greeting from You Coordinates stamp set. 


My next card showcases the Hope Confetti Cuts. I cut it from Cue the Confetti paper pad.

 I used some holographic paper to cut the sun background layer. I love the rainbow look it gives as you move it around in the light. I framed it all up with the Head in the Clouds Cover Panel. 



I finished the sentiment with the Hope Coordinates stamp set.  I stamped it in Island Blue ink. I added a scattering of sequins to embellish the finished card front. 


My final card for today shows the Big Flowers Cover Panel again, but in a different way. I cut it from Premium Polar White cards stock and kept the negative pieces in place so it is a solid panel. It is such a great look, don't you think?


The stamp set I used is the Adorned Egg. I colored the images with Copics and then cut them out with the Adorned Egg Confetti Cuts. I stamped the sentiment onto Iced Aqua card stock.

Reverse Confetti/ March Countdown to Confetti

Welcome! It's time for the March Countdown to Confetti for Reverse Confetti and I couldn't be more excited! There is so much amazingness to share, I just know you are going to flip!

Okay...so let's go! This first set is called Lily of the Valley and it's simple and beautiful and a great addition to any stamp collection. This image in the vase is my favorite. There are also a great variety of sentiments. This one was perfect for me, since I have a friend that needs some cheering up.


I started this with a beautiful bright and cheery color wash in Mustard Seed distress ink. I then stamped the image and colored it up with Copics. I used the Lilly of the Valley Confetti Cuts to cut it out and added it to my card base with some foam dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Midnight ink on a strip of Mist card stock. 



The next stamp set we are showcasing to day is called Orange Blossom. I am IN LOVE with it. I surprised myself because I seriously couldn't wait to color these beautiful citrus images up and THEN I had a total change in design as I wanted to do a set of note cards with the new Along The Dotted Lines Cover Panel. YOU know I am a sucker for anything with stitched lines....so this die was talking to me. 

I went with a trio of cards in ALL the citrus colors...Lime Green, Bumblebee, and Tangerine card stock! I embossed in white with Versamark ink and set aside while i worked on the cardbase. I used Sand card stock and ran three pieces thru my die cut machine with the Along the Dotted Lines Cover Panel. I stamped a sentiment from Orange Blossoms in Midnight ink, starting with the same beginning and finishing the sentiment with a different phrase for a variety in my note cards. 
I have a close up of each color. I also added a strip of different pattern paper tp each note card. I love how simple these cards are, yet they have so much detail.

I made the card on a smaller scale, 4.25 square, and then framed it up with the Scalloped Square Confetti Cuts in Rust card stock. I used just a bit of the sentiment from Better Together and snipped off the word hello. The background is my favorite Diagonal Stitches Cove Panel
