Reverse Confetti January Release Blog Hop

Well, it's been a fast and furious week for us here as we packed up the Christmas stuff and put it away, got the kiddos back in school, Eric back to work after 2 weeks of vacation, several projects made and blogged for this REVERSE CONFETTI release, and today I'll be doing laundry and packing to go to CHA on Friday.  Whew!  Even if y'all have as much going on as I do, I hope you get a chance to sit back and enjoy our new release blog hop from REVERSE CONFETTI today.  With 6 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts, and the introduction of the new Quick Card Panels, there's a lot to love on this month!

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Laurie Schmidlin's blog.  It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all the new Reverse Confetti stamp sets and dies!

I couldn't resist making more than one project for our hop today!  My first one to share is this cute "sucker" card that I used the new SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS on for the tag to go with the sucker.  The background came together in a snap, as I just used 2 of the new HAPPY HEART DAY QUICK CARD PANELS.  The "love love love" one is whole, and the ombre hearts are a strip I cut from another one of the panels to make my card square.  Added the sucker and boom!  DONE!  Those QC Panels sure live up to their name!

My next card is one focused on the new LOVE BLOOMS stamp set and coordinating LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts dies.  

I decided I'd try layering the flowers for dimension since they come in 3 different sizes (in the stamp set and die sets).  It worked out nicely!  I stamped and diecut the bottom and top layers of my main flower and only diecut the middle layer with coordinating patterned paper.  I furled them up a little bit to make the petals curly, then started just "clustering" them all together onto my tag for my card front.  I love this saying, even though I think it's Jen poking fun at my age (again)!  

Ok, I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! You've reached the end of the hop!  If you got lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers over on the Reverse Confetti blog.

A few things before you hop along though, just to keep you “in the know”…
January's SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY is open for you to play along.  Click HERE for a chance to win and become our newest ‘Fetti Fave! 

SUSIE Q-TIP:  I love the look of the scalloped edge around the first base layer on a card.  I accomplished this by piecing together 4 strips cut from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die, and gluing them to the underneath side of my large base layer after I had embossed it.  Fairly simple.
