Countdown to Confetti: In a Big Way

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 new stamp set, IN A BIG WAY.  It's a new and fabulous general sentiment set, perfect for complementing your collection and can be used easily with other images from Reverse Confetti.

I've made a couple of different cards to share as samples for this sneak peek.  For the first one, I started out with some really bright and bold color and pattern choices (surprise, surprise!), and was a little shaky about it.  I just kept poking away at it, and I think I pulled it off nicely.  The sentiment is from the IN A BIG WAY set and you can see I used the new SO MANY STARS to stamp the green panel.  I love that green on green!  The sentiment panel is cut from the large new GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die (there's also a small one) and I made the stars from the older OH MY STARS die.

And because we all need them sooner or later, my second card is a sympathy card from the same IN A BIG WAY set.

I layered the sentiment flag over the GIVE THANKS LABEL which I dry embossed with a houndstooth folder.  With a cluster of the larger TAG ME tag, DIAGONAL STRIPE PRETTY PANEL and a combination from the PETALS 'N POSIES stamp set and Confetti Cuts, I was able to project a serene feel with muted colors for my card. 

Here's a look at the NEW products I used that will be available on the 8th:


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 (September 5-8) for all the sneak peeks over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog HERE.
