Well, how did ya'll like yesterday's SNEAK PEEKS of the new Happy Harbor set from REVERSE CONFETTI? Just to build on that excitement (leading up to RELEASE DAY ON MAY 8TH!), today we are featuring 2 new sets--DREAM IN COLOR AND PEACOCK PRETTIES!!
Here's a closer look at my first card using DREAM IN COLOR:
I loved that paper line from Simple Stories that I "procured" last summer and knew it would look great with this set, as I wanted to challenge myself NOT to go with a "rainbow" look like you'd first think of when using this set (which I totally plan on doing also). I chose some papers from it that had lots of colors to mix and match, and colored the letters in with my Copics also to match. A simple and sweet look, don't ya'll think?
Next up is a card I made using the new PEACOCK PRETTIES:
I know, I know, they both have very similar layouts (to me anyway), but look at what a different look and feel I got from them!
With peacock feathers being a rising trend right now, I think Jen hit it right on the money with this set. It's SUPER FUN to work with and since I LOVE to "fussy-cut", I had a blast cutting the feathers out. Look! I did 2! However, that's not always necessary and I'll be showing ya'll another card I did with them that aren't fussy-cut here in a few days (wink!).
Ok, ya'll want to see more? Jen has a link list of the Confetti Crew contributors for today's SNEAK PEEKS over on the REVERSE CONFETTI BLOG. But before you go, here's a look at the full sets (because we're cool like that):
But wait there's MORE!

SUSIE Q-TIP: I'm a big fan of instead of just stamping a sentiment onto my main panel (the circles in these 2 cards), giving it more depth by layering it on the main panel. This can be done in a variety of ways. Try the flag ended banner way the next time you're in need of that little extra sumthin' sumthin' for your card.
