Countdown to Confetti: Day 1{Hey, Sugar & Birthday Wishes}





Hello, Friends! I feel like I've been a little MIA around here lately, but it's only because I've been working on lots of fun things, including today's Countdown to Confetti! If you haven't heard Reverse Confetti is turning FIVE! We're going to be celebrating with style over the next few days and we can't wait to show you all of the fun new goodies! Today the team is showcasing TWO new stamp set, coordinating Confetti Cuts and some awesome stand alone dies. You'll definitely want to head to each designer's blogs to see how they've used these new products! Also, there will be prizes up for grabs...a $25 gift certificate to one blog commenter and a $25 gift certificate to one Facebook commenter. The Blog link is listed below and this is the link to the Facebook page: Reverse Confetti Facebook page




I've been having SO much fun working on all of these samples! The set I used on these first projects is called "Hey, Sugar" and is just too cute! I can't wait to use it on all kinds of projects! 


My card uses the new POLKA PANEL confetti cuts, the previously released Dashed Lines Confetti Cuts, and the new "Hey, Sugar" set! I used an assortment of sugary sweet inks to blend onto the background as well as the Polka Panel. The popsicles are stamped and colored using Copic Markers. I also added some crystal glaze and chunky glitter over the top.


I couldn't resist making some popsicle shaped gift card holders as well. Teacher Appreciation Week starts on Monday and these will be headed out the door with my kiddos with a Baskin Robbins gift card tucked inside! 


They were so easy to make...I just made a small top-folding note card and attached the stick to the back using ScorTape for security. So easy, but so cute! I used the same design elements on these as the card.

For my next project, I used the new "Candles" confetti cuts and the new "Birthday Wishes" stamp set. They pair together beautifully! I loved making the pattern paper candles using the new 6 by 6 paper pad called "Paper Bliss".

The frames are from the new "stitched squares" confetti cuts and I know I will be reaching for these again and again! You will be seeing more of these this week so you can see how fun and versatile they are! Scroll down to see all of the products I used on today's projects and join me again tomorrow for Day 2 of the Countdown to Confetti! Thanks for fluttering by!

What a fun assortment of cards and GC holders! The ink blended polka panel is beautiful. I love your idea for the GC holder, especially since the GC is for ice cream. The candles look great with the patterned paper behind them.
