Countdown to Confetti: Merry & Bright

Welcome, 'Fetti Fans to Day 3 of the October Release for Reverse Confetti


It's a fabulous holiday release, 
with three new stamps sets, six new Confetti Cuts
plus more great paper crafting goodies!

Today, we are introducing a really fun new set
with coordinating Confetti Cuts: Merry & Bright


I love Christmas lights and was pretty excited when I saw this set!
I decided to blend some in onto my background to created 
the idea of "light" coming from the bulbs.
I diecut a post-it note using curved border die and used that as
a mask to create my "string" for the lights.


I stamped each of the lights onto a coordinating Merry & Bright Confetti Cuts.

Giving myself a treat this morning: catching up on your gallery! As I mentioned before, falling behind does have its perks, because some serious spirit-lifting and 'dazzle' is about to unfold! Your glowing lights have me feeling aglow with how sweet and festive they are! I sent in an order this week and drat...didn't add these! Next time for sure! So pretty!
