Countdown to Confetti - Day Two

I'ts day two of Countdown to Confetti May birthday release! Today we are sharing two new Reverse Confetti sets called Circle Sentiments and God is Good. 

As a card maker I can always use sentiments and the new Circle Sentiments contain seven phrases I'm sure to use over and over again, like this new baby one. 






Additionally, there's a Circle Sentiment Scalloped Circle Confetti Cut to match. For this card design I used it to create a window in my card. 

Next up, God is Good. 





The background of my card was created by cutting strips of card stock in neutral tones, taping them together on the back and then cutting them into a rectangle. I added a doily, ribbon, vellum, jute and buttons to create lots of layers and texture with my sentiment stamped on top of the background layer. 

Seems I'm in a button mood lately with these two cards! Love buttons...such a versatile accent.

And check out the incredible deals on fabulous retired stamp sets, patterned paper, and more by clicking here. 



My first card uses three retiring stamps, Cocktail Party, Two is Better and the background stamp called Potion Shelf. Can you believe these stamps are retiring? They're ideal for birthday cards, cocktail party invites and more! They're a couple of my favorite sets on the retirement list! 



The ATC Two is Better tandem bicycle and sentiment are super cute together or pair the sentiment up with the Cocktail Party stamps. 



How adorable is this bicycle?!?! It's such a cute and versatile image! Swoon! 

Next up a Floral Notes card. I think the Newsprint background stamp works wonderfully with these daffodils! Heck it would go well with just about any occasion or theme, don't you think?

Countdown to Confetti - Day One

Hip Hip Hooray it's Reverse Confetti's 2nd Birthday Countdown to Confetti celebration! What better way to celebration a birthday than with the new Monkey Business stamps and Confetti Cuts?!?! This adorable little guy is ready to party with his hat, balloons and presents! 





Isn't he the cutest?!?! He's going to be featured on a number of my future projects! 

Next up, Party Hats! These adorable hats are perfect for all kinds of parties from birthday to graduation. I created this set for Christopher's 14th birthday celebration last week. 



Remember the cool new Tassel Confetti Cuts that debuted last month? I used it to create this fun frilly bow for the present. 


The Folded Tag Confetti Cuts is perfect for the tag! 


To make the curly present bow I cut three of the Tassel Confetti Cuts with different colored card stock. 


Then I folded them in half.


With a hand punch create a hole to tie tassel to the gift. 

Lastly, using a pencil, wrap each tassel 'string' around it until you reach the end. 


For best results roll one Tassel 'string' toward you and then next away from you. 

What do you think of today's releases? Pretty fabulous, huh?!?! If you would like a chance to win one of four $25 Reverse Confetti Gift certificates leave a comment here on my blog, visit my teammates and do the same. Good luck and enjoy today's projects.

Home Is With You

 Have you seen Janglin'? It's one of Scraptastic Club's 2015 May kits that I used to create this home sweet home little card with. For me, home is wherever the hubs, our son and the kitties roam! 






I created this card with the main kit only along with a bit of thread and a sentiment stamp from a previous Scraptastic Club kit to show what you can create with it. I love the gold foiled accents included in this month's kit from Pinkfresh Studio...so fresh!
