Oh Happy Day! The December Reverse Confetti Release has hit the store! You can find all the new goodies there ready for you! There's 4 new stamp sets and 6 new Confetti Cuts! To celebrate we're having a blog hop! If you're hopping along you should have reached me from Leigh Penner's blog. If you'd like to start at the beginning and get all the details you can do that here at the Reverse Confetti Blog!
There are so many great products this release - 4 new stamp sets, and 6 Confetti Cuts dies! I think you're going to want them all!

The new YOU'RE SO with matching word dies are so much fun.  The sentiments fit perfectly on the new BAR TAG LAYER!
 I dressed up the tag with A WHOLE LOTTA THANKS flowers and a HANG UP TRIO die. 
The LEAVES COVER PANEL is my favorite background die - it makes everything look elegant!

The Cut Shoppe Swap - Ho Ho Ho!

Oh Happy Day!! Pretty Little Studio has teamed up with The Cut Shoppe! All week we're showing projects made with products from both companies. The Cut Shoppe has loads of amazing digital dies to choose from!

My card has lots of pretty papers from the Holiday Cheer Collection! I added a little vellum over the pattern papers to create more layers. The musical print always seems like the perfect accent at Christmas time! 

A journaling card with Santa is the perfect setting for the Ho Ho Ho! die cut from the Cut Shoppe! I cut the digi die to 3.723" Tall x 2.659 Wide in gold foil paper. The holidays always call for some sparkle and shine! Some sequins never hurt either. I added some red (Gift Wrap) and green (Tree Topper) to compliment the traditional colors on this card.

Pretty Little Studio has lots of Christmas and Santa face flairs. This one is from the Kris Kringle Buttons set. Honestly when you see them you might want them all! I added a lacy 4" Cambridge Doily under the journaling card - it reminds me of a fancy cut snowflake!
Wishing you a bright and merry holiday season!

Countdown to Confetti Day 3 - Figure of Speech

It's Day 3 in our Countdown to Confetti!! The new stamps and dies will be ready for purchase tomorrow in the Reverse Confetti Store!   I know you've been good and I sure hope you find some under the tree!   Maybe you'll get luck and win some this week! 
Today we're showing the new FIGURE OF SPEECH Stamp set with matching Confetti Cuts!  This is a set of 6 Speech Bubbles that you can put together to make phrases or use all by themselves! 
I used Reverse Confetti inks to stamp and distress these.  I originally cut the dies and then stamped the panel underneath through the openings.  When I went to line them up some of the words weren't so straight.. so time to give it a second go.  This technique worked perfectly. 

Stamp the images where you want them on a panel of card stock.  I used my Misti so I could stamp them more than once and get the solid images really inky.  Next I laid a sheet of vellum over the stamped images and taped the dies in place. (Note: Tracing paper would work great too.)   Then I took the vellum sheet with the taped dies and laid it on a white card stock panel and ran it through my die cut machine.  Everything lined up perfectly and I have the white die cut bubbles to stamp on later.

Next I took a dauber and distressed the edges of the die cut speech bubbles.   I blended the colors and then splashed them with white ink.
I love the blending - this reminds me of cards I've been seeing with "outer space" backgrounds. I think this would make a great "guy" card. 
Here's a list of the other designers who have projects to share today....

See you tomorrow during the new release blog hop!

Countdown to Confetti Day 2 - You're So, Outlined

It's Day 2 of the Countdown to Confetti!  The new Reverse Confetti Stamps and Confetti Cuts dies hit the store on December 8.. .. that's THURSDAY!!!   In the meantime we're showing projects made with the new goodies!  Today we're showing YOU'RE SO and OUTLINED stamp sets.
The OUTLINED stamp set has 4 sentiments in solid or outline style.  You can also stack one on top of the other like I did on my card today!
The stamped sentiments fit perfectly on the new PEEKABOO TAG LAYER!   This is a die cut/perforated tab that the recipient can pull open and find another message or surprise under. 

This little bundle is three dies stacked.  The PEEKABOO TAG LAYER  goes over the BAR TAG LAYER - the band across the center is perfect for tucking in a little cash.   The TOPPED OFF TAG is the backer .
Because the sentiment referenced candles I added a CANDLES 'N CONFETTI cake embellishment.

Did you know Reverse Confetti has The Twinery Twine in the shop? This is Pink Sorbet. I love adding twine to layered designs... it's the "anchor" that grounds everything for me. I hate when things look like they're "Floating". 
Want to see more projects with the new products?  You can find them here....
