Countdown to Confetti - One Day At A Time and Simply Sentiments

It's the third and final day of Reverse Confetti's 4th birthday release countdown! New products hit the Reverse Confetti store tonight at midnight ET!

Today we are featuring two sentiment sets: One Day at a Time and Simply Sentiments.

You Are Awesome

I started by cutting the Round Top Tag in both Stone and Lime Green. I trimmed off the bottom of the the Lime one and layered it onto the Stone tag. Covering the seam is a banner die-cut from the Greetings Frame Confetti Cuts set, which stands in as a "road."

You Are Awesome

I stamped the Simply Sentiments sentiment on an angle, then heat embossed it in white and accented it with pink enamel dots. At the top of the tag is a Hang Ups Too Confetti Cuts die-cut in RC Aqua card stock.

You Are Awesome

The bicycle is from Rollin'. I stamped, colored and popped it up with foam tape. I also added some flowers to the back, using an image from Hippity Hoppity. Surrounding the tag are two clouds and a sun, all cut with Sun 'N Clouds Confetti Cuts dies. The sun is topped with a stitched-edge circle from the Detailed Circles Confetti Cuts die set out of the new Sunshine card stock.

You Are Awesome

The Cloud White card base is topped with a Vertical Stripes Cover Panel die-cut, also in Cloud White. 

Stamps: Simply Sentiments, Rollin'
Confetti Cuts Dies: Rollin', Round Top Tag, Vertical Stripes Cover Panel, Hippity Hoppity, Sun 'n Clouds, Detailed Circles, Hang Ups Too, Greetings Frame
Ink: Midnight, Versamark
Paper: Cloud White, Stone, Lime Green, and Sunshine card stock; Warm Heart patterned paper
Other: Charcoal baker's twine, enamel dots, foam adhesive, white embossing powder, Copic markers


You've Got This

My next card features a sentiment from One Day at a Time paired with the roller skates from Rollin' and the Pattern Play patterned paper pad.


Proceeds from One Day at at Time will be donated to THE PINK FUND. 

The Pink Fund provides 90 day non-medical cost-of-living expenses to breast cancer patients in active treatment for breast cancer, so they can focus on healing, raising their families, and returning to the workplace.


You've Got This

 I decided to give the skates some patterned paper legs and create a scene with them. (I was inspired by memories of my daughter learning to skate, thus the pink skates and colorful "tights.") The sentiment, from One Day At A Time, is stamped, trimmed down to a banner, and sponged with yellow ink.

You've Got This

The legs are cut from a pattern in the Pattern Play paper collection. I paper pieced the skates using a pink stripe pattern from the True Love paper collection. 

You've Got This

Same as with yesterday's cards, I added some metallic silver to the skates, as well as Glossy Accents on the wheels. I also adhered pom poms to the skates for a fun, girly detail.

Stamps: One Day at a Time, Rollin'
Dies: Rollin'
Ink: Reverse Confetti Midnight ink; Broken China, Cracked Pistachio, Peeled Paint, and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink
Paper: Cloud White and Stone card stock; Pattern Play and True Love 6x6 paper collections
Other: white linen thread, white pompoms, Glossy Accents, silver Sakura Gelly Roll pen

I love your first card with the bright colors- the hangup die in blue on your tag, the sunshine and cloud, and blue road all look so good with the bicycle! However, adding legs to the roller skates to that card all the way over the top! Great job on both!
