Countdown to Confetti - Day #1


Hello there!  I am so excited to be joining the amazingly talented Confetti Crew and Reverse Confetti for their new release this month!  All of the new products that I am using will be available for purchase in the Reverse Confetti store on January 8th, just a few short days away!

For my project today, I pulled out an old Reverse Confetti favorite and paired it some of goodies that will be available in the January release.  I started off by watercoloring a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper with Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick distress inks.  While I was waiting for it to dry, I stamped and colored the adorable puppies from the Puppy Love stamp set, and then used the coordinating Puppy Love Confetti Cuts to cut them out.  Then I diecut a few of the new Lovey Words from dark pink cardstock to create my sentiment along with the help of the new Lovey Words Coordinates stamp set.  I love being able to mix and match the stamp and die combination to create a ton of different sentiments!  I diecut the new Double Heart Garland from white and dark pink cardstock, and strung it across my watercolor panel where I wanted it, and then adhered it with a glue pen.  The Lovey Words diecuts didn't stand out enough for my liking, so I outlined each word with a white gel pen to  highlight them better.  I popped the little dogs up on the card front using foam tape, and then popped the entire panel up on a white card base using more foam tape.


I Love You Forever

Here is my card a little closer, so you can see all of the fun texture from the watercolor paper, and that white gel pen.  I just love how it adds so much life to the images and word diecuts!


I Love You Forever

That's all for me today, but I will be back with more Reverse Confetti inspiration soon! 

Be sure to hop along and visit the rest of the Confetti Crew to see more of the new products! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Love the wator color background and how it softens the card and the coloring on the dogs came out beautifully. Also, just noticed how the writing and the color of the heart banner matches, very nice.
