Reverse Confetti October Release Hop

Reverse Confetti's October release is now available, and today the Confetti Crew & Friends are celebrating with a new release blog hop. So glad you're here!

I have two cards to share today, the first one featuring Jingle All the Way Confetti Cuts, the four new colors (Brick, RC Aqua, Avocado and Stone) and the Pointed Out Stencil.

In the background is a Cloud White card stock panel with white texture paste stenciled on using the Pointed Out Stencil. I added just a touch of red and aqua splatter as well.

For the sentiment, I first die-cut Jingle All The Way out of white card stock, then inlaid the letters using other colors from the Reverse Confetti spectrum.

I tucked that panel into a Lime Green Insta-Frame Confetti Cuts and embellished with a mini clothespin, jingle bells, red wired cord, and Charcoal Striped Twine.

Last are a stacked Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts embellishment in Cloud White and some clear sequins for sparkle.

Confetti Cuts: Jingle All the Way, Snowflake Trio, Insta-Frame

Ink: Brick, RC Aqua

Paper: Cloud White, Lime Green, Brick, Avocado, Iced Aqua, RC Aqua, and Stone card stock

Other: Pointed Out stencil, white texture paste, Charcoal Striped Twine, clear sequins, mini clothespin, mini jingle bells



Next is a pretty, pastel number featuring Christmas Blessings and the Pop Up Circle Confetti Cuts. Don't be fooled by the pop up die -- this was easy breezy! (See Jen's tutorial HERE.)

I used the Pop Up Circle Confetti Cuts to create the card base and to cut the half-circle out of the patterned paper (Sugar Plum by My Mind's Eye).

I used the two layering circles to create the sentiment panel and the scalloped mat, then added a Holly Confetti Cuts accent.

Last, I added some coordinating patterned paper border strips and seam binding to the bottom. I was surprised at how quickly this came together!
