Countdown to Confetti: Folded Tag


Welcome to Day Two of Reverse Confetti's countdown to the March release! Today, we are featuring an ingenious little die and stamp set combo sure to become a go-to in your stamping arsenal -- the FOLDED TAG DIE and FOLDED TAG SENTIMENTS stamp set.

FOLDED TAG SENTIMENTS and the FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts die are the perfect way to personalize any gift packaging. And I love how these little tags double as mini cards. Add one of the stamped sentiments to the outside, then use the inside for a personal message or even just a signature.  Or decorate the outside and add a stamped sentiment to the inside. My stash of kid cards is pretty minimal, and my teen stash is pretty much non-existent, so I can see these being perfect to tie onto the gifts my kids take to their friends' birthday parties. 


For today, though, I had a grown-up friend gift in mind. A local mom-'n-pop coffee shop uses gift certificates instead of the ubiquitous gift card. The gift certificate is more like a card front size or postcard size than the small gift card size. I placed one into a decorative paper bag, folded up the bag, tied on a pretty bow, and added a FOLDED TAG stamped with one of the FOLDED TAG SENTIMENTS. Super quick, super easy, and super pretty! Sometimes that's the best kind of project!

Here's a look at how I did the inside, using stamps from the previously released sets ALL ABOUT YOU and FOREVER FALL (the woodgrain heart)

Countdown to Confetti: More Than Jellybeans and The Tweet Life


Welcome to Day One of Reverse Confetti's March release countdown! I am SO excited about the new products we'll be sharing over the next couple of days. We'll be counting down today through Saturday, new products become available Sunday, and we'll celebrate with a blog hop Sunday as well.  I hope you'll join in the fun!

Today we're featuring two new sets, THE TWEET LIFE and MORE THAN JELLYBEANSeach with corresponding Confetti Cuts dies. In addition, on some of the design team blogs, you'll start seeing new spring-themed Quick Card Panels, and some new dies.

My card today features the SUPER adorable new THE TWEET LIFE stamp set and coordinating dies, as well as a fun new border die, the DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts. I started by watercoloring a background in different shades of blue Distress inks and two sweet birdies in yellow Distress inks. 


I arranged my birds, branches, and clouds onto the background panel, then layered the whole thing onto some music note paper, patterned vellum, and a blue card base. The sentiment is heat embossed in white. The clouds are die-cute out of felt.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Lucky


It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

The LEAD of Lucky will be invited as a Guest Designer in our next challenge!

For today's card, I went rummaging around in my green embellishment drawer and found three heart-shaped clips that I tied together to make a shamrock. I added a stem using baker's twine, and created a scene with some felt grass, a sponged background, and die-cut clouds. The sentiment is from Verve's Lucky You stamp set.




Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!

Sweet Thanks Tag



Hey there, crafty friends, just wanted to stop in and share my take on the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Donut Delight

photo source: howsweeteats.com

Even though I didn't have my act together enough to post a sample on challenge day (or reminder day yesterday), there was no way I was going to sit out altogether. After all, I have the perfect stamp set -- Reverse Confetti's DONUT YOU KNOW.



I die-cut the donut, the frosting, and some heart sprinkles from DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts dies. The tag is Reverse Confetti's TAG ME, TOO stamp set. Also making an appearance is the TRIPLE CHEVIES Confetti Cuts.



To play along with Curtain Call's Donut Delight challenge, link up HERE by 8 am CST on February 25. The LEAD of the Donut Delight challenge will be invited as a guest designer in our next challenge.
