Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti - Day 2

Hello there!  It's day two of the Countdown to Confetti with Reverse Confetti!  All of the goodies that we will be sharing with you will be available in the Reverse Confetti store and at your favorite retailers on March 8th.

I've got a big post for you today, so grab a cuppa something and settle in!

My first card uses the new YOU Confetti Cuts, You Coordinates stamp set and the new Big Flower Cover Plate.  This card took lots of diecutting but I think it was totally worth it.  I started out by diecutting the Big Flower Cover Panel from black and white cardstock and a rainbow of colors.  I adhered the  white diecut panel to a white card base.   Then I inlaid each rainbow petal like a puzzle.

You Coordinates

With a background like this, you need a bold sentiment and the new You Coordinates stamp set and accompanying YOU Confetti Cuts die are the perfect solution!  I diecut the large YOU from black and white cardstock and adhered one on top of the other.  Then, I used the You Coordinates stamp set to heat emboss the rest of the sentiment in white embossing powder on black cardstock.  I popped a red heart, also from the die set, up in the center.

You Coordinates

Next up is Hope Coordinates, HOPE Confetti Cuts and the new Head in the Clouds Cover Panel.  To create this card, I started off by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper with blue to create the sky, then spattering it with metallic gold watercolor.  I diecut the panel with a previously released Stitched Rays Cover Panel.  Over top of that, I popped up the new Head in the Clouds Cover Panel cut from white cardstock. 

Hope Coordinates

Next, I diecut the HOPE Confetti Cuts from white cardstock.  I ink blended Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide inks over the rays of the sun.  Then I swiped the edges with an embossing pad, and heat embossed the tips of the rays with  gold embossing powder before popping the diecut up with foam tape.  I embossed a sentiment from the Hope Coordinates stamp set onto a banner, and added a scattering of clear sequins to finish things off. 

Hope Coordinates

Finally, Adorned Egg!  I made a little 4.5" x 4.5" square card using the basket image from the new Adorned Egg stamp set.  I diecut a square using the Along the Dotted Lines Cover Panel.  I ran it through my machine once, turned it sideways and ran it through again.  The result is a checked square.  I ink blended some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink over it, then stamped and colored the image before diecutting it with the coordinating Adorned Egg Confetti Cuts.  I popped everything up and gramed it with a scalloped frame before mounting it to a Piggy Bank cardstock base.

Adorned Egg

The sentiment is also included in the set, and I added some white gel pen accents to finish off the card.

 That's it for me today,  but be sure to hop along and comment as you go for your chance to win a Reverse Confetti gift certificate!  Hope to see you back tomorrow! :)
