Reverse Confetti November/December Release Day 1

Delighted to be participating as a "'Fetti Friend," meaning I'm a guest designer for Reverse Confetti for the months of November and December. 

Today we are highlighting 3 new sets -- Mixed Messages, Botanicals, and Home for the Holidays. I'm also using a new Confetti Cuts Cover Plate, Plaid Lines Big

Mixed Messages and Plaid Lines Big

Took one look at the Plaid Lines Big Confetti Cut plate and I knew what I wanted to make with it. Such a great (and easy) way to make a fun, colorful, graphic card. Cut some strips of green and aqua cardstocks and die cut using the plate, and then die cut a white base and adhered to an A2 card. Popped up the colored pieces with foam tape. Added a sentiment from Mixed Messages and done! 

Botanical and Mixed Messages

Stamped and embossed the smaller images on watercolor paper. Added a quick wash of watercolor and die cut. Love how the dies cut out the center of the spaces between the leaves and blossoms. 

And the sentiment "Tomorrow is a new day" is spot on!

Home for the Holidays

Stamped a couple of houses in Versafine Onyx ink, embossed with clear powder, and then ink blended. The sentiment is from a set released earlier this year that I just love -- Best Sentiments

And that's it for today. I'll be back with more on Friday and Saturday and then a blog hop on Sunday.

I love the colorful village and the way you used the plaid die!

Leslie Miller said...

The color grabbed me right off! Clever use of the plaid cut plate. Really love your blend there. In total agreement about how great it is to have the die cut the inside spaces. I always look for that, and if it doesn't cut I generally won't even buy it. Pretty use of the smaller images in that set. Finally, your houses are so cute! great idea for the coloring. It would be fun to make a bunch for Christmas, but this set goes way beyond the season. Adorable!
