Thanks


I needed a quick thank you card today, I think I like making thank yous the best - it's nice to have something to be thankful for! Confetti Cuts make it SO quick and easy to create something pretty fast, I'm so thankful for that!


I wanted to pair some geometric elements with floral, so used the Triple Chevies Confetti Cuts to die cut some striped paper. The stamps are Love Blooms and I've used the matching Love Blooms Confetti Cuts.


The fabulous thanks was cut with the Fancy Words Confetti Cuts. I love the font on these!

Reverse Confetti New Release Blog Hop!


It's time! Happy Birthday Reverse Confetti! The brand new 2nd Birthday release is available RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!


You should have arrived here from Kay Miller, if you need to start at the beginning, head on over to the Reverse Confetti blog!

We're hopping today and showing off all the goodies you can add to your stash finally! My card today uses the new Circle Sentiments stamp set.


My card started with the fabulous Let's Celebrate Quick Card Panels. I die cut the chevron panel with the Documented Confetti Cuts to make a frame for the lower panel. The Quick Card Panels are so lovely and thick they layer like this popped up on foam really nicely. 


I cut the sentiment with the Scalloped Circle Confetti Cuts. I've used the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts to add an award ribbon feel to the sentiment. The Star Garland Confetti Cuts was cut from gold foil cardstock. 

It's time to head over and visit with Laurie now!

Countdown to Confetti: Love and Ice Cream!


Welcome to the last day of peeks at the Reverse Confetti Birthday Release!


Today we're looking at Love and Ice Cream and the matching Confetti Cuts. This set is TOO. MUCH. FUN. 


Jackson is 3 next month - it took him 2 seconds to recognize this ice cream sundae - I had to promise him some ice cream this weekend! Not too hard, making this card definitely gave me a craving!


I sprayed the spoon with silver mist and added some glossy accents to the cherry and chocolate fudge. 


The hearts are from the Love Note Confetti Cuts. The striped layer was cut with the Documented Confetti Cuts and the sentiment from Love and Ice Cream was stamped on a layer from Circles 'n Scallops

It's very rare that I duplicate a card - but Mother's Day has snuck up on me this year! In the interest of getting things in the post on time (I am terrible at this!) I used the wonderful Button Best stamp set and Petal Points Cut Above Dies to make two matching cards today.

Countdown to Confetti Day One!


Woohoo! It's time for sneak peeks at the new Reverse Confetti release to begin, and this month is EXTRA special - it's our birthday!!


Today we're sharing two fabulous new sets, perfect for celebrating the birthdays in your life!


This adorable monkey is from Monkey Business and I LOVE him! He has lots of fun accesories, I've used the balloons here. The tag features the fun new Party Hats stamp set. 


I've used one of the wonderful new Let's Celebrate Quick Card Panels for the shaker element - cutting it with the Documented and Class Act Confetti Cuts. That wonderful star element is the Star Garland Confetti Cuts - I love this one!


I coloured this cutie with Copics. 


To go with the card, I created a tag...


I used the leftover piece from cutting the shaker window - I love to use every little piece of these Quick Card Panels! The Tag Me Too Confetti Cuts was the perfect base for this tag.
