Countdown to Confetti: Keywords--So Very Special



Well, today is the second day of sneak peeks from REVERSE CONFETTI.  We have some inspiring projects to show off today!


Today, the Confetti Crew is sharing what we've made with the newest set from our Keywords set, SO VERY SPECIAL.  Jen and I have both decided that this will be one of our favorite "go-to" sets ever!


I made a couple of cards for this one, as I kept getting more ideas on how to use it.  Again, the SO VERY SPECIAL set centers around one main word--special--and has several phrases that coordinate with it for various sentiments.  The first one I did in a splashy theme, and used the new PERFECTLY PAISLEY Confetti Cuts dies for the water.  Love!  The fish are from one of our very first sets, HAPPY HARBOR and the turquoise circle is from the new CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts set (of 4 dies).



The other card I made has an unusual layout that I found on Pinterest (you can follow me HERE).  I used the SO VERY SPECIAL set off-center to highlight the new CHEVRON PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts die that I backed in orange with the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT die set. Yep, it matches up perfectly. 



Here's a look at all the new REVERSE CONFETTI goodness I used today.  We're just cool like that.  I can't wait for y'all to see all the ways those paisleys can be used!



 


We have lots more sneak peeks to share over the next 2 days.  Then, everything will be available on the 8th.  Don't forget that Jen has a link list going daily (July 5-8) for all the sneak peeks over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog HERE.

SUSIE Q-TIP:  In case y'all haven't noticed, I've been really big into rounding the bottom corners of my cards lately.  Sometimes both at the bottom, sometimes just one in the bottom corner.  Why?  I couldn't tell ya.  I just like it for a change.  I also highly recommend the Zutter Round-it-All for this.  Cuts like buttah.  And it's pink, so there's that.  So very special.
