Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti Day 1

Hello, friends! Hope your weekend has been refreshing and relaxing so far! Mine has! I'm here today with Day 1 of our Reverse Confetti April Release sneak peeks! Today, we're sharing peeks at two new sets!


First up is the new Pineapples a Plenty set and matching Confetti Cuts!


I had so much fun with this summery card! To start off, I rounded the corners on my card base and stamped some polka dots from Whole Lotta Dots in pink. The pineapple pattern paper is actually one of the new Pina Colada Quick Card Panels! I layered it on piece of Daffodil cardstock (from MFT) and rounded the corners on these pieces as well. I cut the scalloped panel with the Love Note Confetti Cut out of pink cardstock, and then the rounded rectangle from the Class Act Confetti Cuts. Next, I cut out three pineapples from the Pineapples a Plenty Confetti Cuts and stamped with coordinating stamps. I thought, this summery card needs something else. How about a flamingo from Fabulous Flamingo??? I cut it out with the Fabulous Flamingo Confetti Cuts and stamped in pink and black ink. The last touch on this card was the twine wrapped around the card front.

*********************************************

Up next is a card using stamps and die cuts from the new Leaping Lions set...


I cut out the lions with the Leaping Lions Confettti Cuts and stamped them in black archival ink. Next, I colored them with my Tombow watercolor markers. The triangle patterned paper is another card from the Pina Colada Quick Card Panels. I cut a circle out of the middle of it using the largest plain circle from Circles 'n Scallops.  I cut a couple banners out using the Leaping Lions Confetti Cuts and then stamped the coordinating banner fillers from the Leaping Lions stamp set. The black scallops are from the Love Note die. I just trimmed it up and used it to edge the main panel. I love this sweet sentiment too, isn't it adorable??? Super fun stamp set!!

Okay then, that's all I have to share today, pop on over to the RC Blog for more inspiration!!! You won't want to miss a thing! See you back here tomorrow with more!
