Countdown to Confetti: Shine Bright and The Buzz


It's Day Three of Reverse Confetti's Countdown to Confetti -- welcome! 



Today, we're featuring two new stamp sets, SHINE BRIGHT and THE BUZZ, as well as coordinating Confetti Cuts for the THE BUZZ. I'm sure you've seen the new SUN 'N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set, which goes with everything in this release, but especially SHINE BRIGHT.

I have two cards to share today, both quick cards using the new SPRING FLING QUICK CARD PANELS. Don't you love these?! For the first one, I started with the Hello Sunshine quick card panel, and added a sun and a cloud from the SUN 'N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts set, a strip of washi at the bottom, and sweet bee from THE BUZZ stamped in turquoise and die-cut with THE BUZZ Confetti Cuts.


At the top, I added some turquoise twine, a button, and a red and white polka dot flag from the previously released DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set. I placed everything on a dark gray card base, which really helped the whole composition just pop.



For my second card, I stamped a SHINE BRIGHT sentiment onto the Quick Card Panel, added a stamped/die-cut/colored bird from THE TWEET LIFE, a cloud from SUN 'N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts, tied on some twine, and added a couple of offset mats. Super quick and cute, thanks to the Quick Card Panels.
