Reverse Confetti Release Day!

It’s a new year, and what could be better than to start it off with a brand new shiny release from REVERSE CONFETTI?!  

Love is definitely in the air with the 6 new stamp sets (including our new QuirkyCuties line) and 3 new Confetti Cuts Dies.  
We invite you to hop along with the Confetti Crew, Challenge Crew, and a few other friends today as we share our cards and projects using the new products.  
We think you’ll fall in love over and over with this release!


The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Heather Pulvirenti’s blog. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all the new Reverse Confetti stamp sets!

Isn't Freida Fox the cutest...yes she's a girl in the set but I have made "her" a "boy" for this project lol! So I'm naming him FRED FOX for my project today bwahahaha! This stamp set is from Reverse Confetti's new line of "Quirky Cuties" that are being released today...hop over to the store to check them ALL out!  I am looking ahead towards Valentine's Day so I decided to make a fun V-Day card boy style.  My last project with this set HERE was girly themed so I decided to switch it up a bit.

The papers are a mix of Docrafts Papermania (b&w) and Bazzill Basics (red). I used a few of my Spellbinders dies to make the pinking circle element and the hearts...and a CB folder to emboss the white cardstock.  The arrow I made myself because I lack any arrow dies (need the Confetti die here) and stamped the "Hey Foxy!" in white palette ink on it.  HINT: she/he would be cute flocked.

So YES Freida Fox can be turned into Fred Fox to make my stamps versatile in many ways so by cropping off the bottom of "her" it eliminated the dress.  I paperpieced his sweater and scarf to match the papers I used.  TIP: always shade your paper pieces when you have a colored image or else the paper piecing looks flat next to your lovely shaded and colored image. I shaded mine with C7 & C5 to add in some dimension.  And I colored the image with Copics...the C Grays and then added Diamond Glaze to his "optional" glasses you can add on.  I also decided to cut him out and pop him up with dimensionals on my embossed circle...I love lots of layers and textures on my cards!

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper:  Docrafts PaperMania and Bazzill Basics
Copics, Diamond Glaze, button, bakers twine
Stickles, Zutter Distress Tool, Spellbinders dies, Scor-Tape
Cuttlebug folder, dimensionals, heart rhinestones
