Countdown to Confetti - Too Cute to Spook and Easy As Pie




Welcome to Day One of Reverse Confetti's Countdown to Confetti. The September release is fabulous, and can be yours at midnight EST, September 8.

Be sure to visit the Reverse Confetti blog for links to all the designers posting peeks today. Leave comments on each designer's blog for a chance to win a $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificate. Also, head over to the Reverse Confetti Facebook page for another $15 giveaway.





Today, we are sharing two new sets, each with coordinating dies: Too Cute To Spook and Easy as Pie. The September release also includes many extra dies and some new Quick Card Panels called Fall Fun. You're going to LOVE!

My card features Too Cute to Spook and the coordinating Too Cute to Spook Confetti Cuts dies. 


First, I watercolored a soft sky background and a grassy mound using Distress Inks. Next I created a stitched circle frame, then added the cute kitty, broom, witch hat, and spider, all colored with Copics.


Finishing touches are some silver star sequins and a sentiment banner topped with a silver embroidery floss bow. Everything is mounted onto a light aqua card base.

INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaMark, Tumbled Glass and Mown Lawn Distress Inks
