Reverse Confetti October Mini-Release Hop

What did you think of the Reverse Confetti mini-release projects the Confetti Crew showed yesterday? Nice surprise, yes?! Today, the 8th, is hop day. All the new products from yesterday are now available, plus you get a whole new round of inspiration during today's hop!

If you arrived here from Leigh Penner's blog, you're right on track. If you've just happened to wander by, head over to the beginning of the hop, the Reverse Confetti blog. That way you won't miss a thing!

Today, my project features the new ROUNDABOUT and ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp sets, as well as the new ENVIE WRAP CONFETTI CUTS die. First, the card:

The brown piece with the scalloped edges was done with the ENVIE WRAP CONFETTI CUTS die. After cutting it once, I rotated the die-cut 180 degrees, nestled it back in the die, and ran it through again. This gave me a nice symmetrical shape with scallops on both ends. I stamped the "hb2u" sentiment from ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS in VersaMark on vellum, heat embossed in gold, and die cut it with the smallest circle from CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS (so great how all of these products coordinate size-wise!). The confetti background was done with the smaller circle stamps in ROUNDABOUT.

Next is the coordinating envelope:

I love that I can dress up my envelopes like this! Since most of my cards won't go through the mail in a traditional way anyway, the extra layers on the envelope don't change anything. That said, I can't wait to try making a mailable wrap next!

The "deliver to" circle is from ROUNDABOUT, and the smaller "hb2u" accent circle is from ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS. The confetti circles in the background, again, are from ROUNDABOUT.

That's it for me today! Next on the hop is the amazing and talented Sarah Gough. Enjoy!

Its like you learn my mind! You seem to grasp so much about
this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something.
I believe that you just could do with a few % to power the message
house a bit, however instead of that, that is magnificent blog.
A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
