Countdown to Confetti: In A Big Way


Welcome to Day 2 of the September Release for Reverse Confetti


It's a fabulous fall release, 
with five new stamps sets & six new Confetti Cuts! 

Today, we are introducing a new set: 
 it's another fabulous sentiment set called In a Big Way.

You can see the product graphics at the bottom of my post.  

For my first card, I decided to pair one of the sentiments from this set with 
a new panel die that's being released this month: Pretty Panels: Triangles.


I had fun diecutting the panel from aqua mist, white & three shades of pink card stock.
On the background, I stamped a few triangles from Tinsel 'n Trim.
I stamped the sentiment from In a Big Way on some sweet blush card stock 
which I made into a banner by trimming the ends with the small tag from Tag Me.
I love the pretty yet graphic feel of this card!

For my second card, I paired In a Big Way with another new set
being released this month: So Many Stars.


 I started by stamping one of the So Many Stars stamps repeatedly
across my panel in Versamark and heat embossed it in white.
Then, I added some colour with watercolour paints.
I trimmed a vellum strip to 2 3/8" wide and die cut the end with 
the bottom of the larger tag from Tag Me.
I stamped my sentiment in Versamark on the vellum 
and heat embossed it in black.
A few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins finish it off.
