Countdown to Confetti: Day 1...







Hey there!  I am really excited about today's post.  I am joining the DT over at Reverse Confetti to bring you some sneak peeks of the new release.  Today the girls are showcasing a couple different sets over on the RC blog, but I have 2 cards today using sentiments from a new set called Paper Crane.  Be sure to stop over to the Reverse Confetti blog to see what the other girls have made up....and also, don't forget to leave comments on the way.  There will be a random commenter chosen to win a gift certificate to the RC store.  :)

My first card is one using one of the new sentiments from Paper Crane.  I adore the font in this set!  So many adorable sentiments....

I used my cameo to make this digital cut and then stamped the sentiment below.  I kept it super simple for sure.

This next card uses another sentiment from the set, as well as a couple new dies.

I scored the card base every 1/2" using my MS score board.  I used the new scalloped frame to cut out 3 frames, gluing them all together in the middle.  I stamped the sentiment on the white frame and then curled up the edges along the embossed line.  

IMG_0943 I added in a small hear die and covered it in glossy accents to finish it off.

Here are the new stamps and dies I used for this card.  They new products will be available at Reverse Confetti on January 7th, at 11pm CST.





So glad you could come by today!  Don't forget to head to the Reverse Confetti blog to see a full list of the DT blogs.  Go check out today's peeks and comment for a chance to win!  Have a great Sunday!
