Countdown to Confetti: Count Your Rainbows


Well, I don't know about ya'll, but even for me, waiting for new stamps to debut from different companies is just plain torturous (and in ya'll's case, especially when they come from REVERSE CONFETTI, right?)!  Just so ya'll know, waiting to show off the new release stamps is equally as torturous for the designers!  Thankfully, I can finally share in my giddiness, as today starts the 3 days of SNEAK PEEKS from REVERSE CONFETTI!

Today, the Confetti Crew are serving up their creations using the new COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS stamp set.  It's the next installment in the Key Words Collection and it's brilliant, I have to say!


Because I couldn't put this set down, I made two cards to show ya'll today.  This first one is super clean and simple, almost scrappy and I love all the tiny details and thin lines from the keyword, COUNT to the small number circles, to the itty bitty dotted lines--all stamped from the COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS set.


Next I have a more detailed card where I indulged in the "more is more" look!


Ok, I'm going to be on my way now.  I've got to get to surfing the net to see all the new REVERSE CONFETTI creations, too!  

But before you go, be sure to leave a comment below (and on each designer's blog) for your chance to win a $15 gift certificate from Reverse Confetti.  Commenting closes at noon CST on September 7th, and the winner will be announced that night at 5pm CST.  Good luck!  Here's a look at the full set and a few examples of how the stamps can be combined...I know, it looks like fun, right?  



SUSIE Q-TIP:  When taping end of ribbon or twine to the back of a card panel, it's best to do this before you put glue all over the piece.  Otherwise, it's really hard to negotiate holding the ribbon/twine to tape it down without getting glue all over your fingers.  Don't ask me how I know this.  I don't want to talk about it.
