Count Down to Confetti-day 3 You Mean the World to Me

One more sleep until the big JULY Release from Reverse Confetti! I can't wait! Do you have your list ready?? Save some room, because we have one more day left  to show off more new products and today's set with a coordinating Confetti Cut is just too sweet! 

The stamp set is call My World and it's full of beautiful, heartfelt sentiments with the fabulous mix of fonts RC loves to use. Makes my heart happy. I stamped this one  in Gold Encore ink onto an insulation pink panel. 



Since I mention that panel....it's something special and a must have new Confetti Cut. It's our first embossing panel in a gorgeous Woodgrain, AND it also cuts out a rounded rectangle in the my favorite size, matching the Documented die. Yay, the one I use all the time! Love this new one! It's called Woodgrain!


I also can't wait to tell you about the die that is taking center stage on this card. It's a perfect addition to the My World stamp set. It's called Globe and it's awesome! I love the heart in the center and that the base is a separate piece so you can cut it in a different color card stock with ease.   





Today is the last day to get your comments in. Hurry, so you don't miss out on another chance to win an RC Gift Certificate. 
Stop by the Reverse Confetti Blog for all the details. 


Tomorrow is release day!
I have more fun to share with our New Release Blog Hop. 
Come on by and check it out. 
Thanks for all your sweet words this week.

You Are a Star, is a new star set, and it's oh-so great!!!  I water colored some paper with my distress inks and the "smooshing" technique and used the You Are a Star Confetti Cuts to cut out 4 of the stars. I love that there are a great variation of sizes with the stars. 

I used the Documented die to cut a light gray panel to hang my stars from. I stamped the "twinkle Twinkle" star with Ombre inks and then cut that out with the matching die. I topped it with a Love Note heart and button combo. The sentiment from Fancy Word Coordinates was stamped along the bottom of the panel. 


Up next is the  Posted Note Sentiments stamp set and Posted Note Confetti Cut dies. I started the card with a custom stamped star background from You Are A Star with a few of the smaller sized stars from with insulation pink ink. 


I created a clip board with a teal stand using the Posted Note Confetti Cuts and stamped the Posted Note Sentiment on to a striped designer paper piece. I used some silver card stock for the clip part.  I embellished it with a few more stars, but this time some die cuts from You Are A Star

Count down to Confetti-day 1

 
Let the excitement begin! I have been waiting for this day to arrive for a few weeks now. It's time for the next Reverse Confetti release and the new products are totally going to steal your  heart! The fun starts today with day one of our Countdown to Confetti. I have two cards today showing off two awesome stamp sets and coordinating Confetti Cut dies, and a few other goodies thrown in. Remember all the new products will be available on July 8! 

You have a couple chances to win some prizes, too! Who doesn't love a give away? All you need to do is leave comments on the DT blogs during the next 3 days.

The first set I have to share just might be my favorite!  It's called Later Alligator. Once again, there are coordinating Later Alligator Confetti Cut dies. Love that!  I have had a love affair with gators for a long time, so I was beyond giddy when I opened up this set. It's A-dorable! 

I stamped the gator in Black Licorice hybrid ink and colored with my Copics. I then did a quick and easy Copic technique to add some texture to my gator. Check out how to do it below. 




Adding texture with Copic Various Ink

1. Color up your image as you would like. 

2. Add some Copic Various ink to an old rag. Give it a good soaking. 




3. Quickly dab the ink soaked rag to your colored image. Use a quick dabbing motion over the areas you want to have texture. 

4. Set your image aside to dry. 



Ok, so back to the rest of the card details. How fun is the fringed "grassy" edge I added. It was easy to do with the Tassel Confetti Cut. I snipped the ends off and adhered them down. I stamped the sentiment from Later Alligator on a Stitched Flag Trio.  I added the birthday cake image from the stamp set and added some sweet little white polka dots with a white gel pen. Oh, I don't want to forget about the newest Quick Card Panels: Weather or Dot {& Stripes}. As always, super cool patterns and great colors!



I have another card to share using the Later Alligator stamp set and Later Alligator Confetti Cut. It was a perfect addition to the new Weather It Together stamp set. 


There are so many fabulous weather related images and as well as some fun sentiments in the Weather It Together stamp set. I used one of the Quick Card Panels: Weather or Dot {& Stripes}  for my main image panel. I stamped the sentiment at the top of the panel and added some stamped and die cut clouds from Weather it Together. I love how easy those panels are to work with, creating fast and easy cards.
