Hey there! Welcome back to Day 2 of the Countdown to Confetti! If you missed my post yesterday, this month, Reverse Confetti is celebrating their 3rd birthday! We have been busy showcasing all of the new products that are coming your way on May 8th. If you want to take a peek at yesterday's post, you can find it here!
Today, we are showcasing two new stamp sets that you will find in the Reverse Confetti store in a few days! I just love the fun, sketchy, whimsical birthday cakes in the Candles n' Confetti stamp set! With all of the elements in this set, the mix and match possibilities are endless! Decorate a cake for any occasion, in any color scheme!!
For my project today, I created a set of watercolor birthday tags. I started off by watercoloring stripes in a bunch of different color combos using a 1/2" flat brush. When my pieces were dry, I diecut tags using the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts. I added a fun pinked edge to each tag using the new Top 'o the Tag Confetti Cuts die set. Instead of using the pinked edge as a topper, I adhered it to the bottom of the tag for a totally different look! I also added a coordinating hole reinforcer that you can find in the Tag Me Confetti Cuts die set. I stamped the cake, candles, candle flames, and cake plate. A little tip. Even though the Candles n' Confetti dies are open dies, it is best to cut, THEN stamp the image if you are using the cake image with the candles. It is much easier than doing the reverse, because it is easier to line up this way. After everything was stamped, I diecut the little scalloped icing from the Candles n' Confetti Confetti Cuts, and adhered them to each cake with a glue pen. Then I popped the cake up on the plate with foam tape, and centered them on the tag.
I love the stitched details on the Top 'o the Tag Confetti Cuts! It adds so much fun texture along with the texture from the watercolor paper!
I decided to add a second tag; a place to add a sentiment and write a little message since these will likely be added to gift packages. It eliminates the need for an additional card. To do this, I die cut a second Topped off Tag from white cardstock. I added a score line about 3/4 from the top of the tag and folded the top of the tag backwards at the score line, then adhered them together with a tape runner. The score line makes it easy to read the message inside.
Speaking of that... Before I adhered them together, I stamped a sentiment from another new stamp set called Celebrations. For a fun touch, I stamped a confetti image, also from the Celebrations stamp set, along the bottom of the tag in a coordinating ink color.
To finish things off, I added a bit of black and white striped twine and a tiny bow to each tag. I think tag sets like this would also make a great gift! I don't know about you, but I am usually scrambling at the last minute trying to decorate a gift while I am running out the door. Now I am good to go for at least the next 5 birthdays! Ha! :)
