Reverse Confetti Release: QUIRKY CUTIES: FREIDA FOX & PAPER CRANE

Sunday, January 05, 2014

Welcome to the January Release for Reverse Confetti
Jen has put together some fabulous sets this month......
featuring Valentines, friendship and lots of lovely sentiments! 
There are also some fantastic new dies this month, too!


Today we are sharing two sets called Quirky Cuties: Frieda Fox & Paper Crane.  
You can see the product graphics at the bottom of my post.  

Here are the cards I made with these sets...

First up is the card I made with Quirky Cuties: Frieda Fox.


Since I wanted to use the friendship sentiment in the set, 
I decided to stamp Frieda twice, using some masking, & make two fox friends.
I am planning on giving this card to my BFF and had lots of fun paper-piecing "our" outfits
with Crate Paper's Pretty Party patterned paper.
The glasses are included in the set, so I added those to "my" fox. 
I framed them in a polaroid die cut so it looks like "we" were caught on film.

My next two cards use the Paper Crane stamp set.


I used some Basic Grey patterned paper on this card.
I die cut the banners using the largest tag die from Reverse Confetti's Tag Me dies.
I just ran the die cut through my die cutting machine, but didn't run it though over the top of the tag. 
Then, I used my paper trimmer to trim the edges.
I stamped both the image and sentiment in versa mark and heat embossed them in white.
A few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finishes it off.

For my next card, I chose to use just a sentiment from Paper Crane.


I also used one of the new Confetti Cuts available this month: Double Edge Scallop Border.
I ran it through my die cutting machine with some Basic Grey patterned paper seven times
and then layered them on my card.

I stamped my sentiment in a matching blue ink.
I wanted to add an embellishment, so I die cut the smaller heart from Confetti Cuts: Love Note
five times and used these to make a flower.


I was quite pleased with how it turned out!














That's all for today!
