TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

July 22, 2014

Hello sweet ‘Fetti Fans!

I am so thrilled I got to PLAY in the studio/office recently.  In addition to packing orders, designing CHRISTMAS (yes, that is what I said) stamp (and Confetti Cuts, of course!!), I have been doing a bit of a studio/office reorganization.  When we moved to Houston, I had to get everything functional…fast.  If you are anything like me, you know that just functional is kind of boring.  Yes, the studio/office HAS to be functional and organized, but I needed a bit more of me and my creative side infused into it.  So, that just what I did…after I added more functional storage.  I’ll be showing pics next week, if all goes as according to plan and everything that is scheduled to be delivered is delivered on time.  Yea, about those deliveries…I’m looking forward to sharing those with you, as well.

And, while I am being a bit of a tease…

Mark Your Calendars:

Thursday, July 24th

It all starts here on the Reverse Confetti blog.

And, yes, there will be prizes.  A few of them, in fact.

. . . . .

Well, it’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  What I CAN share with you right now is this scrappy card that I made while I was playing in the studio…

Congratulations2

My kiddos’ former babysitter is getting married next month.  Instead of a traditional style wedding card, I went with something that matched her personality…fun, cool and hip (that’s totally what this card says, right?) *wink*

Congratulations

I used the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set as a base for the CHEVRON PRETTY PANEL Confetti Cuts. The base is in a lighter share of gray so that the chevrons pop out (subtly) against it.  I adhered those to the white card base and stamped the “congratulations” sentiment (BEAUTIFUL BANNERS stamp set), just offset.  From there I built the main “image” panel.  The base of it is the smaller scalloped/debossed circle from the new CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set, topped with the smallest circle from the same set, stamped/heat embossed with the small dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS.  Then, I topped it all off with flowers from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set and an enamel dot.  As a finishing touch, I added the flag-ended banners/tails (TAG ME Confetti Cuts).

Detail shot…

Congratulations1

WEEK IN REVERSE

July 18, 2014

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

The weekend is just about here…YAY!  I am hoping to get a little time in the pool and soak in the sunshine.   I {heart} summer!  Although, Houston is giving me a deeper love for air conditioning!

Since it’s Friday, it’s time for the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.  If you missed it, be sure to check out THIS post with tons of fabulously fun inspiration for the new color challenge.

. . . . .

CONFETTI CAMERA

July 17, 2014

Hey ‘Fetti Fans!

The weekend is in view…wahooo!

It’s Thursday and time for another great CONFETTI CAMERA!

In this weekly segment, one of the Confetti Crew designers will have the camera on both themselves, as a designer, and on their Reverse Confetti creations. For this round, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from a fun tip or technique from each of our designers. A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such on Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will answer the same set of questions/show a tip until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member (then it’s a new round with new questions/theme). To see previous Confetti Camera post, simply click on “Confetti Camera” under the categories link on our sidebar.

3) For this round we are focusing on how Reverse Confetti stamp sets are compatible with each other and each of the Confetti Crew members is picking a few of their favorites to pair together on their project.

. . . . .

Today on Confetti Camera we have a project from the very talented, JONI ANDAYA

JoniIntroPic

Hello Joni here, for my card I used the FABULOUS FLAMINGO, FABULOUS FLAMINGO Confetti Cuts, PETALS ‘N POSIES, PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts, and the DIAGONAL STRIPE PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts…

thanksAB-rc

I wanted to create another look for the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set. For my flamingo, I created a sorta scarf look using vellum with the sentiment “Thanks A Bunch” from PETALS ‘ POSIES (flowers and leaves cut from coordinating Confetti Cuts die set).

thanksAB2-rc

This will also work for holiday cards, as the image can easily change with different colors we can change the scarf with red vellum or red cardstock instead; I think that would be festive. I really like the scarf look I hope you agree.

. . . . .

Today on Confetti Camera we have a project from my super talented bestie,  SUSAN LILES

SusanIntroPic

. . . . .

For my project, I wanted to make something other than a card for a little change of pace.  However, I saw a squirrel and didn’t stick to the plan of using two different stamp sets on it.  Oh well, so y’all get a nice surprise today.

 DSC02951

I decided to make a little pocket from two tags.  I used the new TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die and cut out two of them.  I glued one on top of the other, which created a very long tag.  I then just folded the bottom scallop up toward the front and stapled it on the sides.

DSC02948

DSC02950

I used the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS for the top piece, and only glued it along the top, so that I could tuck in the Kool-Aid packet underneath it from the front.  Finally, I dressed up the completed tag envelope with elements from the FRESH ‘N FRUITY stamp set and added a cute heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts border die.

 DSC02946

The lemon from the FRESH ‘N FRUITY stamp set would look extra cute on this project too, with a packet of lemonade!

As promised yesterday, I want to show you how the PERFECTLY PAISLEY Confetti Cuts set can be used all on its own.  I first created the blue/green card using all of the paisley sizes and layered them.  I liked how it looked so much that I created the pink/orange one, too!

I stacked up a couple of the paisley panels on white cardstock cuts for a little added dimension…

My second project today features the new FRESH ‘N FRUITY set paired with the new CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts set on a (previously released) SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts…

FreshNFruityTreatTent

To create this fun lil’ treat/giftie, I cut 2 of the SWEET TREAT TENT and adhered them together.  Next, I stamped the sentiment and added the oranges stamped from the FRESH ‘N FRUITY stamp set and cut with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set (the leaves are also cut from this set).  To create the topper,  I cut out the 2 largest circles from the new CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set, folded them in half and added them to the top of the SWEET TREAT TENT.  Don’t you just love that debossed edge detail?  I then punched holes and added the ribbon.  The finishing touch was added the sequins topped with rhinestones for a bit of bling.

The inside contains a glassine bag filled with orange Jelly Bellies (yum!)…

I don’t want to keep you here too long, as there is so much more to see on this blog hop featuring our July release.
