CONFETTI CAMERA

July 31, 2014

Hey ‘Fetti Fans!

I am ready for this weekend to begin…are you?  This weekend a few girls from the Confetti Crew are making their way down to Houston for CKC!  Reverse Confetti will be doing Make ‘n Takes at The Little Blue House booth #500.  If you are planning to be at the event, be sure to stop by and give us a big hug!

. . . . .

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 ABC (anything but a card) projects.  Keep your eyes peeled for some fabulous ways to use your Reverse Confetti stamps!

. . . . .

Today on Confetti Camera we have a great home decor project from the super sweet and ever so talented, LISA HENKE

LisaHIntroPic

((Please note: Lisa’s project uses the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set which will be back in stock early next week.))

I always get excited to share on the Reverse Confetti Blog. Today I’m showing you how easy it is to use the great stamps and Confetti Cut dies to make a burlap frame for your home. Yep, I said home decor….don’t freak. It’s just like working on a card, but on a little larger space. To me, that means you get to add some extra little pretties to fill in the spaces.

LHCC- 1

I started by covering a 6×6 canvas frame with burlap. It’s a NO sew project, just use a strong adhesive, like Scor-Tape to secure the burlap to the back of the frame.

LHCC-2

I start with a focal point. Today, I used the FABULOUS FLAMINGO stamp set for my inspiration. I just love the beautiful sentiments included in the set. I then began layering. I pulled out TAG ME, TOO, CIRCLES ‘ N SCALLOPS and the banner piece from TAG ME. I cut all my pieces, stamped the sentiment, and decided to add some black accent to the banner piece. The trendy diagonal stripe from SO STRIPEY was perfect for the job.

Once I had my focal point complete, I moved outward from there adding bits and pieces of handmade embellies. It’s easy when you have such pretty Confetti Cut dies to work with. I die cut plenty of flowers with PETALS ‘N POSIES and two FABULOUS FLAMINGOS. I like to use papers from within the same paper pad, that way I know they will look great together.

LHCC-3

After I have all my pieces cut and stamped, I layered them up and place them on my frame where I think I want them. I take a step back and make sure I have a good balance of embellies. Then I adhere the pieces down and added the sequins. The last step was to add the ribbon to hang the frame.

LHCC-4

Home Decor items, don’t need to be hard. Stick to what you know and create something beautiful.

QUIRKY CUTIES HOP

July 24, 2014

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

Instead of Confetti Camera, today we are having a super fun hop with super fun prizes!

If you are looking for the start of the hop, you are in the right place!  There’s a full list of hoppers later in this post in case of any breaks.

QCHOPGraphic

(card by Confetti Crew member, Sarah Gough)

. . . . .

Today’s hop is all about our QUIRKY CUTIES line of stamps here at Reverse Confetti.

Originally, “Quirky Cuties” was going to be a single set.  However, I am a little indecisive and I just *love* how fun these cuties are, so I developed them into an entire line.  So far, we have four cuties…with more coming with each release.

Today, I am sharing a card I made with our very first cutie, FREIDA FOX.

FreidaProductSheet200

QCHOPCard

Frieda is ton of fun to color, paper piece or just leave as line art!  It’s just one of the reasons that I adore this image (ok, well, I adore all of them).

I used my Copics to color her fur, flower and shoes and then I paper pieced her dress, scarf and heart.  Here is she is on circle panels cut from the new CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts.  I went with white on white for those panels so that Freida would stand out more.

Detail pic of Freida Fox and the heart topped with Diamond Glaze…

QCHOPCard2

To embellish the card, I cut out the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set and topped it with a button tied off with green linen thread.  I also added a trio of colorful enamel dots to mimic the pattern paper.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

July 23, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!

We have had several inquiries to when the FABULOUS FLAMINGO stamp set will be back in stock.  While I do not have an exact date as of yet, I do want you to know that it has been re-ordered and we have requested that it ships to us as soon as possible.  When our inventory is replenished, we will update our Facebook page and send out a newsletter.  If you are not connected to either/both of those, please click the graphics with links below.

It’s Wednesday and time for WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS? It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between.

Today, I’m focusing on fun ways to use your CONFETTI CUTS dies

I actually came up with this project idea while making the card that I shared yesterday.  I am all about getting the most use/creativity from products, and I keep that in mind when designing stamps and Confetti Cuts dies.  For today’s project I created a floral notecard set, but I did not use any floral stamps or Confetti Cuts.

SunflowerCards

Can you tell what I used to create this flower and leaves?

SunflowerCards2

To create this flower with leaves:

First, I cut 1 small scalloped circle from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set from yellow cardstock.

Then, I cut 1 small circle from brown cardstock using the same die set and stamp with even lines from SO STRIPEY, attach to yellow scallop circle using dimensional adhesive.

Of course, I had to add enamel dots for embellishment.

The large leaf is cut from green cardstock using the lemon/lime die from the FRESH ‘N FRUITY Confetti Cuts die set.  I stamped it with the large dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS and scored it down the center (for a more leafy look).

The other leaf is the large leaf stamp and Confetti Cuts, also from FRESH ‘N FRUITY.

Isn’t that a fun way to create a flower?

As for the rest of the card…

The sentiment is from the LOTS TO SAY stamp set and is stamped on the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set, cut from kraft paper and mounted on the scalloped rectangle from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  The entire panel is mounted to the white card base using dimensional adhesive.

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
