Countdown to Confetti - All Apples and Bitty Banners


Welcome to Day One of Reverse Confetti's April Release Countdown! Today we are featuring two stamp sets, as well as coordinating Confetti Cuts dies for both: All Apples and Bitty Banners.

All of the new products will be available in the Reverse Confetti store at midnight EST April 8.

I have two projects to share today, the first one featuring All Apples stamps and coordinating dies.



I did a bit of light watercoloring in the background, then flicked on some darker green speckle before layering on a grouping of two stamped and die-cut apples, some leafy branches, and a few wood veneer stars.

 I love the different sentiments on the apples!


Stamps: All Apples

Confetti Cuts Dies: All Apples, Leafy, Layered Laurels

Ink: Papertrey Pure Poppy, New Leaf, and Green Parakeet

Paper: watercolor paper, white card stock, black and white stripe patterned paper

Other: watercolors, brush, wood veneer stars, foam adhesive, black and white baker's twine






My next project features a floral grouping done with previously released products, along with one of the new Bitty Banners tucked in:


I started by lightly sponging some aqua ink onto the background. in the top center, I layered on two Squared Off Tag Toppers, then the pink heart-in-a-circle, and then various flowers and greens. Last, I tucked in a teal Bitty Banners sentiment.




To the main panel, I added tiny scalloped Edge Essentials borders, then mounted it to a pink card base.

Bitty Banners is one of those must-have, multi-occasion stamp sets. Just perfect or tucking little sentiments here and there!
