Countdown to Confetti-Day 1


Wahoo friends! How exciting is this? My first Reverse Confetti release! I'm so excited and I hope you are too, because there are so many fun new stamps, papers and dies to show you over the next few days! Welcome to Countdown to Confetti with Reverse Confetti. Each day the Confetti Crew and 'Fetti Friends are introducing new products that will be released at Reverse Confetti on March 8th. Win a $15 gift certificate for leaving comments along the way and an additional $15 gift certificate to one lucky person who leaves a comment at the Reverse Confetti Face Book page. 

Up first, is this card made using the new, absolutely adorable, set called "Sealiously"! I'm so in love! To begin, I used the new "Stitched Rays" cover panel and die cut it using a piece of the new "Fun Times" pattern paper. I loved the moody blue tone that it gives this card. The seal, clouds, and rain drops are all stamped onto a piece of Premier Polar White cardstock  and then die cut using the coordinating "Sealiously" confetti cuts. I colored the images using Copic Markers. I also splattered some Seafoam Ink that I had mixed with water onto the clouds and white "dashed line" tag. It gave it just the right rainy look I was hoping for. The "under the weather" sentiment is heat embossed in white onto a strip of Midnight cardstock.


I made this to go on the inside of the card, but after it was made, I thought it was a great CAS design, so I decided to show it on its own. It could be a great quick and simple card! I did adhere it onto the inside of my card later. I've listed pictures of all of the new products that I have used and they will be available for purchase on the 8th! Scroll down for my SECOND project!






 The next project is made using the new "Honey Bear" stamp set and coordinating Confetti Cuts. My son's fabulous 2nd grade teacher just earned her Doctorate Degree and I wanted to make her a little "Congratulations" gift and this new set is PERFECT!! Also, Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up in May and this set would work nicely for that as well. My project includes a gift card holder, a tiny 3 by 3 card to write a greeting and a small treat box.
The treat box is made using Midnight cardstock and the new "fun times" paper pad. The tag is from the new "stitched lines tag" and is the perfect size. I colored and cut all of the images using the coordinating "Honey Bear" Confetti Cuts.

This little tag was the perfect excuse to use another one of the cute sentiments.

I love all of the versatility that this new set has. I didn't even get into the darling honey pot and bee theme that you can also use with this set! Just wait! LOL!


I created this gift card holder by positioning the bears and pile of apples strategically with foam squares so that it could slide down easily. I had so much fun creating this project and I hope that my son's teacher likes it! Join me again tomorrow for the next Countdown to Confetti Sneak Peek!
