Reverse Confetti Mini-Release -- Day 1

Welcome to the Reverse Confetti mini-release!




I'm so excited that Jen decided to have a mini-release this month -- such a fun idea!
And the products she's releasing this month are super fun, too
-- you'll definitely want to check them out!

For today's post, I created projects using the new
Roundabout & Roundabout Additions stamp sets,
as well as the Envie Wrap Confetti Cuts.


Here's my first card & coordinating envelope:



This is such a fun new die & a fabulous stamp set with excellent fonts!
Here's my card:


I stamped some circles from the Roundabouts stamp set in different colours
on my background.
I stamped my birthday wishes sentiment (from Roundabouts Addittions) and
diecut it with the largest circles from Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts  --
I love how Jen created these to coordinate perfectly together!
Then I tilted it the panel on my aqua mist background and adhered it with
dimensional adhesive and added a few Pretty Pink Posh blush sequins to finish it off.

Then, I decorated my envelope to match:


I stamped the circles again in the same colours.
I diecut the Envie Wrap from aqua mist cardstock and adhered it to my envelope.
I stamped my "just for you" sentiment (from Roundabouts) and
diecut it with the largest circles from Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts 
before adhering it to the Envie Wrap.

And here's the back:



The "hb2u" sentiment is also from Roundabout Additions.

I also wanted to show you how I used the Envie Wrap
(along with the Roundabouts Additions stamp set) on some cards.


Here, I layered the aqua mist Envie Wrap diecut over some MME Chevron patterned paper.
A few buttons & twine finish it off.


Here I adhered it from the top of my card, like a tag and added a MME decorative brad.
The patterned paper I used here is Crate Paper.


On this card, I adhered the Envie Wrap at the bottom of my card, so
that the design of the Crate Paper background points to it.


And lastly, I made a band by diecutting the end of the Envie Wrap a second time
and adhering it to my card under the full Envie Wrap.
Again, I added some buttons & twine to finish it off.


 

   


Well, that's it for me today.
