Countdown to Confetti Day 1
Tropical Leaves, Lovely Day Sentiments

Oh happy day! There's a new Reverse Confetti release just around the corner - it will be available on July 8. Until then we're counting down to confetti with peeks at the new release. Today we're sharing projects made with the new Tropical Leaves and Lovely Day Sentiments.
You know I can't resist a rainbow of color and this one is no exception! I started with the Split Circles Cover Panel cut from white cardstock. I cut colorful cards stock scraps from the panel and inlaid the half circle die cut openings. Double sided adhesive behind the panel keeps the inlaid pieces in place.

My favorite way to add even more color to a design is to stamp with colored ink on colored card stock. These leaves are beautiful! I love the clean lines!
I topped the Tropical Leaves with a sentiment stamped on Vellum with Staz On ink. I didn't want to cover up those beautiful leaves and the vellum lets the color show through!
Some gold glitter enamel dots add a little bling and help secure the vellum so no adhesive shows through.
My second card features the new Peek A Boo Cover Plate die cut. It cuts stitched sunray lines and lots of half circle cuts.

Using post it tape I masked the rays and inked them with distress ink in citrus colors.

I bent the half circles up and layered the panel over a sheet of gold glitter paper so you can see the gold if you look from an angle.

The center seemed like the perfect place for a simple sentiment. All of the sentiments in the new Lovely Day set are large so I decided on this one from the Sentimental Gems set.
Here's a good look at the card at an angle so you can see all the popped up half circle cuts.
The photo of this card really doesn't show how stunning it actually is!
