Countdown to Confetti - You Lift Me Up


Welcome to Day One of Reverse Confetti's third birthday celebration and countdown! We have a fun week planned for you, and some fantastic new products to showcase. I'm so excited for what we have in store for you this week!

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

Leave comments on each designer's blog for a chance to win extra generous Reverse Confetti gift certificates (three $30 gift certificates)! Also, head over to the Reverse Confetti Facebook page for an additional giveaway.





I couldn't wait to create an sweet scene for the adorable giraffe and birdies from Lift Me Up. I pulled in some branches from The Tweet Life Confetti Cuts to make it look like the giraffe is giving the little birdie a lift back up to her tree branch. 

The cloudy sky was done with sponging and the Wonky Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts die, as well as a few Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts die-cuts.


The giraffe, birds and branches are all watercolored.. The background is sponged and splattered. I also added some grass tufts using a colored pencil.
