RC Release: TINSEL 'N TRIM & BRING ON THE MERRY

Welcome to the November Release for Reverse Confetti
Jen has put together some amazing sets this month......
featuring Christmas, Lattes and lots of lovely sentiments! 
And, they're also releasing dies and calling them Confetti Cuts-- isn't that fabulous?


Today we are sharing two sets called Tinsel 'N Trim & Bring On The Merry.  
These sets have a lot of sentiments that can be mixed and matched to your hearts content.  
You can see the product graphics at the bottom of my post.  

Here are the cards I made with these sets:

Tinsel 'N Trim is such a fun set that I decided to make a card that reflects that.


I wanted to play up the "sparkle" from the sentiment, so I stamped my sentiment
& images onto cream shimmer card stock.
Along the side, I stamped "joy" repeatedly along the side in Perfect Pearls Medium 
and then dusted some cream perfect pearls over top.
I adhered the cream shimmer panel over top of the pink using dimensional adhesive.

Here's a close up to show off the sparkle.


My next two cards use the Bring on the Merry stamp set.

For the first one, I combined five sentiments from this beautiful set 
to create the focal point of my card.


Two sentiments were stamped in black. 
Two were heat embossed in white and one was heat embossed in red.
After stamping and heat embossing my sentiments, I masked them and used a new stencil 
and some embossing paste to add some falling snow to my card. 
I love the texture this adds!

And my last card for today combines three sentiments from Bring on the Merry and 
one stamp from another stamp being released this month: So Stripey.

And, it used one of the new dies that Reverse Confetti is releasing this month 
-- a set of dies called Tag Me -- but in a different way.


I stamped my red card stock background repeatedly with So Stripey.
Over this, I layered a strip Fancy Pants patterned paper.
Then, to create my long tag, I used the smallest tag from the Tag Me set, 
but I only ran the top of it through my die cutting machine and then backed it up. 
I trimmed the rest of the tag with my trimmer.
I die cut the red ring using the coordinating die from Tag Me and added it to the tag.
I stamped three sentiments from Bring on the Merry and tied on some twine 
before adhering it to my card.

That's all for today!
There will be a $15 gift certificate up for grabs, so you need to leave a comment
