Countdown to Confetti Day 2

 Why, hello there! I'm so glad you've popped by today for Day 2 of the Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti! I hope you enjoyed everything that I shared yesterday! Aren't the new stamp sets SO cute? I know I will be using them again and again and today's products are no different! I've had such a fun time working on all of these Valentine's Day projects! Don't forget to head to the rest of the Confetti Crew's blogs to see what they've come up with as well!

My first project for today uses the new "Heart Pals" stamp set which is SO adorable and so easy and fun to color! There are quite a few super cute critters, which I will be sharing ALL of them later on in the week, so stay tuned! For this card, I chose to use this sweet little bear holding a heart.



I did some simple coloring but added some glitter to the heart and some Nuvo glaze to his nose for some extra detail. The sentiment is heat embossed in white to really make it pop! I used the coordinating "Heart Pals" confetti cuts to die cut the image.



For the "hello" portion, I die cut the "hello lovely" confetti cut 4 times out of white cardstock and once using the blue paper which is from the Warm Heart 6 by 6 paper pad. I glued them all together and then added some glaze over the top to  give them that "store bought" look. I actually did the word "lovely" as well, but will need to use that on another project since it didn't quite work for this one. I used a few of the new paper from the "From Cupid" paper pad.



My next project uses the new "Big Bear" stamp set which is so fabulous for so many different occasions. I was still in "valentines" mode, so I put together some hot cooca/gift card holders using the Scalloped Bags and Tags creator. I thought the bear looked so cute with his mug and the cute "warm hugs" sentiment. I stamped the "a little something just for you" sentiment on a strip for the inside to go with the gift card. I bought some from a local drink/cookie shop. 

I love sets like this because they remind me of my paper dolls that I loved growing up. The "Big Bear" set has so many cute accessories for the bear to hold/pull, etc. The coordinating "Big Bear Confetti Cuts" actually die cut a slit so the bear can actually hold the objects. I opted to use a foam square for dimension, so I didn't use the slit.



I also used the new "Love you Most" set that was showcased yesterday. I thought the sentiments looked so cute clipped to the top....and yes...more gold clips! LOL!


These will be so fun to give out to friends and family this Valentine's Day! Some say Valentine's Day is a made-up Hallmark holiday, but to me any excuse to tell someone how much they mean to you is a good day! Thanks for fluttering by!

Your little critter cards are super cute! I love that bit of deep blue, which has a nice feel against all the pink and red, and feels a little warmer than black too. Thanks for some fun inspiration!
