Reverse Confetti / Countdown to Confetti Day 3

Christmas Candles 

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Reverse Confetti September Release!  
Reverse Confetti is releasing ..... 7 new stamp sets and 9 Confetti Cuts this month as well as the Abundant Autumn paper pad.    

Make sure to check out the Reverse Confetti blog for a list full of inspiration and information on all the new goodies!!


The next 2 days are all about Christmas!  

Christmas Candles has a few iconic images for the holidays.  I've used the single tall candle with the greenery stamped in Olive and Lime Green Reverse Confetti Dye Inks.  All images were die cut and arranged over an Distress Ink blended background using Scattered Straw.  The background was spritzed a few times with Gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine.  A gold heat embossed vellum sentiment strip was adhered above the image along with the frame.  To finish, I added some gold gems.

My second card goes RETRO.  I love pink and turquoise trees!  I spread this love using the Triangle Trees and coordinating Confetti Cuts.

Triangle Trees

I silver heat embossed each of the tree images onto either grey cardstock or Piggy Bank/Iced Aqua cardstocks.  After die cutting the trees, they were arranged over a Stitched Rays Cover Panel.  The trees were added in varying heights with foam adhesive.  A grey silver heat embossed sentiment strip was added with foam adhesive and a few silver gems were added!

Love the soothing quality of these cards. It just shows the power of color and how one stamp set can be so different depending on what color palette you choose. Thanks!

Pretty card with the traditional candle and cool details. The trees are absolutely retro. 'Back in the day' they even had pink and aqua appliances! Super cool!

I love how you made one traditional and one modern. Great designs. Very inspirational. Just lovely cards.

Your top card just prompted me to say, wow! And the bottom one reminded me of Charlie Brown looking at artificial Christmas trees in the class TV special. Very nice, both of them.
