Countdown to Confetti: Puppy Love and Heart to Heart


A new REVERSE CONFETTI release is around the corner, and today, the peeks begin! 



Today we're previewing two new stamp sets, PUPPY LOVE and HEART TO HEART, and both have coordinating Confetti Cuts dies. There are also three new PRETTY PANELS dies, and a SQUARE TAG (plus dies that go with the stamp sets you'll see the rest of this week). AND ... we have a brand-new product this month, something called QUICK CARD PANELS, which you'll see later in this post. Exciting stuff!

Be sure to visit the Reverse Confetti blog for links to all of today's peeks. We have two giveaways this month. One $15 gift certificate winner will be drawn from blog comments, and the other will be drawn from comments on the Reverse Confetti Facebook page.

I couldn't wait to ink up these sweet little pups from PUPPY LOVE. (Don't look too closely at my Copic coloring -- my skills are rusty, or maybe it's my eyes!) Aren't these little guys adorable?!! The heart behind them is one of many fun, graphic heart art images from HEART TO HEART.



I stamped one of the darling PUPPY LOVE sentiments onto a banner strip and accented with a button and two twine bows.




I colored over the eyes and noses with a black glaze pen, and added some sparkle to the pink and blue bows with a clear Wink of Stella pen.











STAMPS: PUPPY LOVE, HEART TO HEART

DIES: PUPPY LOVE, HEART TO HEART, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER

INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black

PAPER: rustic white card stock, Webster's Pages Beautiful Chic collection

OTHER: pink twine, black baker's twine, wood veneer hearts,
Copic markers, foam tape



Now, about those QUICK CARD PANELS. They are beautiful, themed, pre-designed printed panels. They come in a set of sixteen -- 2 each of 8 designs. Use them alone or add a few embellishments -- either way, they are what they promise: quick! This first collection of Quick Card Panels has a strong Valentine theme, to go beautifully with the Valentine stamps and dies in this release. You can add to them, cut them down, stamp on them -- whatever your heart desires!


For this card, I started by layering a white BIG CHEVRON PRETTY PANELS die-cut onto a QUICK CARD PANEL. I wove five lengths of metallic twine through the chevrons, alternating the over/under for a basketweave look. (I was inspired by the weaving on this card of Kathy Martin's.) The ends were secured to the back of the QUICK CARD PANEL, which was then adhered to the card base with foam tape. I then added a die-cut heart from PUPPY LOVE and a gold heat embossed "love" from the HEART LOVE PRETTY PANEL











DIES: PUPPY LOVEHEART LOVE PRETTY PANELS, BIG CHEVRON PRETTY PANELS

INK: VersaMark

PAPER: HAPPY HEART DAY QUICK CARD PANELS, white card stock, My Mind's Eye Jubilee 6x6 collection

OTHER: gold embossing powder, silver metallic twine, gold sequins, foam tape



Remember to leave comments on blog posts (the full list is on the Reverse Confetti blog) and on the Reverse Confetti Facebook page for a chance at one of two $15 Reverse Confetti gift card giveaways. Good luck!

Thanks for joining me today. Stop by again tomorrow for more Countdown to Confetti peeks!
