Countdown to Confetti: Crushin'


Well, today is the last day of sneak peeks for REVERSE CONFETTI.  That means the release is TOMORROW, January 8th!  Let's get on with the show and introduce one more new stamp set...

This set is my most favorite Valentine's/love set ever!  So cute and trendy with phrases and fonts to die for--it's called CRUSHIN'.  (who was your first crush?)


This card is pretty plain and simple with a "cluster" of elements as the focal point, rather than a definite sketch with layers and panels.  I stamped the sentiment on my old favorite, the smaller tag from the TAG ME die set.  The heart is the larger one from the new LOVE NOTES die set and it's layered on top of that fabby new ARROW die.  It's awesome and can be used for cards, scrapbooking or Project Life type books.  It makes me happy!  Well, what can I say?  ALL of Reverse Confetti makes me happy!

Here's the new stuff I used today:

 

 



Want to win some  
of your very own?  
There's TWO ways to do that! 
Leave a comment on each of the designer's blogs for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate.  Comments will close at noon CST on January 7th (today) and the winner will be announced at 5pm on January 7th on the Reverse Confetti Blog.  In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion. After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for the pink circle graphic.

SUSIE Q-TIP:  Washi tape--you have lots of it and I bet you won't have to dig too much to get to it because it looks so pretty just sitting there in its little jar.  You're obsessed with looking at it, actually.  Grab it and use it as an "anchor" of sorts to ground your main focus of your card, especially when there is no central image.
