Countdown to Confetti Day 2: Cotton & Thistles

Hello there!  Welcome to day 2 of the Countdown to Confetti with Reverse Confetti!  Our September release is just around the corner!  All of the new goodies that we will be sharing with you over the next few days will be available on September 8th in the Reverse Confetti store and at your favorite retailers!

Today, we are showcasing a few new goodies, and my card uses the new Cotton & Thistles stamp set and coordinating Cotton & Thistles Confetti Cuts dies along with the new Bag & Tags Creator Confetti Cuts die set.  To create my card, I started off with an A2 card base cut from Sand cardstock.  I diecut the zigzagged rectangles from the Bag & Tags Creator die set from Sand cardstock as well, and ran it through my diecut machine with the Stitched Rays Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die to add a fun stitched detail.  Then, I popped it up  on the card base with foam tape, and splattered the entire card front with white acrylic paint.  I added a piece of pattered paper from the  previously release Free Spirit paper pad to act as a table cloth for my scene.  Running it though my diecut machine with the zigzagged rectangle die from the Bag & Tags Creator die set ensures that it matches up perfectly with the panel.

I stamped the wildflower bouquet and jar from the Cotton & Thistles stamp set onto Sand cardstock with Sand ink, and diecut then with the coordinating Cotton & Thistles Confetti Cuts dies.  I colored then with colored pencils and added some white gel pen accents.  Then, I glued them together, and added a tiny twine bow to the  neck of the jar before popping it up on the panel with foam tape.  For my sentiment, I pulled out my Bitty Banners stamp set, and stamped a banner in Sand ink on to Sand cardstock and diecut it with the coordinating Bitty Banners Confetti Cuts dies, then I popped it up on the jar with foam tape.
