Countdown to Confetti: Tie-rific & Insta-Frames

Welcome, 'Fetti Fans to Day 2 of the April Release for Reverse Confetti


This month is a fantastic release, 
with four new stamps sets & eight new Confetti Cuts!

Today, we're showcasing a new set that's perfect for dads 
called Tie-rific (with coordinating Confetti Cuts!) as well as a fabulous
new set of Confetti Cuts called Insta-Frames!

I made two cards using the new Tie-rific stamp set -- one casual and the other a little more formal.


For my card for the more casual dad, I diecut a circle (from Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts)
and a tie using the new Tie-rific Confetti Cuts from two of the new School Days Quick Card Panels.
I trimmed a couple of strips to make the collar for the shirt.


I stamped the sentiment from Tie-rific.

For my more formal card, I started with a piece of smokey shadow cardstock.


I scored two lines on my panel using my Scor-Pal and from there,
started stamping the adorable polka-dotted tie from Tie-rific  in either versafine onyx black & 
heat embossed in clear or in versamark, which I heat embossed in gold.



I stamped the sentiment (also from Tie-rific) in versamark and heat embossed it in gold.



 



That's it for today!

I like your second card with all the ties, but I LOVE the first one. How clever to give the illusion of a shirt and tie without all the fuss of an actual shirt. SUPER CREATIVE!! This release sure looks good to me.

Both of these cards are fabulous but I have to say the second one, with all the stamped and embossed ties, is my absolute favourite! It's not always easy to create something so graphic that has a little shimmer for men but you did it beautifully. Thanks for the blog hop and your awesome inspirations Karen x
