Countdown to Confetti: Dream in Color & Peacock Pretties


Hello and welcome to Day TWO of the Reverse Confetti May Release Sneak Peeks! Did you love yesterday's set or WHAT? Super cute little nautical set, every stamper needs it in her arsenal;)

Today we're peeking TWO new sets, and they are FANTASTIC! Yes I really am that excited, ha!


This card uses images and a sentiment from Peacock Pretties. I stamped the feathers in Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay ink and then cut them out. Someone yesterday commented on my post that they loved the stamps and dies. Well let me set the record straight, there are NO dies for these stamps, just my good ole' fashioned Cutterbee's ;)

I kept this one pretty simple since it has a bunch of bright colors!


My next card uses stamps from the new Dream in Color set...


I knew right away that this was going to have to be a colorful card:) Ya can't have a sentiment like that in brown or gray, now can you? I cut out a bunch of flags with some MFT die-namics and then layered and sewed them down. I colored the "color" in with different Copics. I love the rainbow effect and think you're going to see that concept a lot today, ha!

Well that's all I have for today, I'm so glad you stopped by! Thank you all for your lovely comments yesterday, you really know how to make a girl feel good:)
