Confetti Camera

September 18, 2014

It’s Thursday and time for a great Confetti Camera where you will learn how to “stretch” your dies…or at least their use!

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 the one and only (my bestie), SUSAN LILES

SusanIntroPic

. . . . .

Hey ‘Fetti Fans!  Are y’all ready to see something fun you can do to make your dies work a little harder for you?  I love finding new ways to use them.

 This time, I’ve taken the rounded tag from the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts and made a sweet little party favor treat holder.

20140917_164156_resized

 Here’s what I put together to get started.  The sentiment is from the new IN A BIG WAY stamp set and the frame is stamped and cut from the GIVE THANKS stamp set and cut with the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die.

20140917_163405_resized(1)

 Once I cut 2 of the tags, I scored them at the bottom about a 1/2″ up.  Then placed them on top of one another and glued the circle down to the top of one of them.  Then with my paper piercer, poked a hole through all 3 thicknesses.  I also *very carefully* poked a hole through the center of the cardstock bow.  This will be where a brad will go to hold everything in place.

20140917_163107_resized

20140917_163502_resized

 Decorate the front of the tag with the circle on it.  I also added a strip of the stars from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.  Fold the bottom of the tags along the score lines, and adhere them together right there.  Fold both sides up.  Put the brad through the bow and both tags and secure.

20140917_164628_resized

 These are perfect little treat holders for a “fun size” pack of M & M’s!  A little secret:  If y’all are local, stop by The Little Blue House this Saturday from 10-2.  I’ll be hosting a make-n-take, and you can make one of your very own!

A SPECIAL WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

September 17, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Today I have a super fun WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS post for you!  Reverse Confetti is the sponsor for the new sketch over on StampNation…how fun is that?!?

Catherine (of CatherinePooler.com/StampNation) and I have collaborated on a few things in the past, but I have to admit that has been by favorite so far!

The sketch is posted over on the Stamp Nation site and here’s my take on it using CAST A SPELL, CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts and CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts…

SNCard

Today, you’ll see cards from not only the Confetti Crew, but also from the talented StampNation Design Team HERE.

Not a member yet?  Today’s the last day for the $1 trial (sweet!).  You can get that HEREIt’s a wonderful community of stampers and there is always something new and fun to learn and see!

Catherine is also up today here on the Reverse Confetti blog with her take on the sketch with some of your favorite Reverse Confetti products!  I told you today was special and fun!

First, a note from Catherine herself…

Thank you so much to Jen for having me as a guest designer today and for hosting the challenge at StampNation this week! We have been blown away at the creativity from both Design Teams, but I really shouldn’t have been too surprised! When you are using RC stamps, great things happen! I got to play with Fresh & Fruity and have made FOUR cards with the set. The oranges on this card were Rock and Rolled to create depth and dimension and I couldn’t resist adding Frosted Lace Stickles to the oranges…now they are almost good enough to eat! I hope you enjoy the video – be sure to watch until the end for a little surprise. Check out my blog tomorrow, too for another fun card with this set and an out-of-the-box way to use it.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

September 10, 2014

Hello and Happy Hump Day!

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 am focusing on something super simple and a way to get more out of your stamps and Confetti Cuts dies…create your own embellishments.

I’ve done that here on this tag (TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts) I attached to a few cookies in a cello bag…

CookieTag

I have to admit, that I first reached for some pre-fabricated embellishments that I bought at a big box store, but then I thought better of it as I looked at the CAST A SPELL stamps on my studio desk.

I layered the broom and and witch hat, both cut from the coordinating CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts die set.  To dress it up a little, I paper pieced the ribbon around the hat and added a star (OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts) topped with a sequin and rhinestone.

Easy peasy, right?

Here’s a few tips to keep in mind when creating your own embellishments…

Keep it simple.  I stamped in black on kraft paper.  Because of the subdued color, it doesn’t take away from the main focal point, but rather enhances it.  I also want to mention, that I brought this project to the CKC convention last week and A LOT of people commented on how they loved the look of the black on kraft.

Still keeping it simple, layer coordinating images to create a fun, clustered look.

Dress it up a little if needed.  I added the paper pieced strip (same paper as the top of the tag) and the embellished star for just a little pop of color and bling.

. . . . .

I’m keepin’ it short and sweet as I have all your orders to get out the door!  Have a great day!

NEW RELEASE BLOG HOP

September 8, 2014

Happy Monday, ‘Fetti Fans!

I gotta say that starting a new week with a new release is pretty darn fabulous!

 

NowAvailable

. . . . .

All of the new release are available in the store now.

To celebrate the new release, the Confetti Crew has put together a fabulous hop with a ton of “Confetti Creativity” using the new stamps and Confetti Cuts dies.

Note, there is a full list of hoppers at the bottom of this post in case there are any breaks along the way.

My first project for you today features the new TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

TreatTote1

Tutorial for how to assemble both of our new totes can be found HERE (video) and HERE (picture tutorial).

To create this TREAT TOTE, I used black and white patterned paper as I really wanted the colors on the “TREATS” panel to pop.  I cut 2 “TREATS” sentiments out…one in orange and one in white and layered them, slightly offset.  The circle reinforcer at the top of the bag is from the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shot…

TreatTote1detail

. . . . .

My second project today features a fun mix of new and previously released Reverse Confetti products…

GotCandy1

I saw these cute bags at Michaels and immediately knew what I wanted to do with them!

First things first…fill them with candy.  I put 2 mini Hershey bars in the bags.

Second…make them cute!

To do that, I cut the rounded top tag from the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die (I love when I get to use these dies in fun and different ways) and then made a score mark 1 inch in from the straight end (opposite the rounded end).  This is where the tag is folded over the bag.  I wanted a little more detail, so before I attached them to the bag I used the perforation line from the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts to add the perforation/dashed line.  To attach the tag to the bag, I simply used a small stapler.

On the bottom/round portion of the tag, I added patterned paper and then layered my embellishments.  The Kraft panel is cut from the new GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts and then stamped with the large dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS.  I created the spider with circles from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set, a small circle punch, enamel dots and strips of black cardstock.  The orange panel is cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set and is stamped with a sentiment from SPOOKY SENTIMENTS.

I’ll be giving these out to my kiddos’ teachers for Halloween.

There is so much more “Confetti Creativity” to see today!

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again…I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!  Not the dressing up part, so much, but all the decor and projects that are all about Halloween!  I know most people love Christmas the most, but for me it’s Halloween, then Valentine’s Day and then Christmas.  Being that it’s (just about) fall, it is time to get started all those fun Halloween and Thanksgiving projects!

So, without further adieu let me introduce you to our Halloween stamp set and its coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

CAST A SPELL

CastASpellProductGrapicA

CastASpellCCProductGrapicA

As you can imagine, I have been very busy creating with this set!

This card features the CAST A SPELL stamps and Confetti Cuts, as well as the (previously released) OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts and CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts…

CastASpell1

I added Diamond Glaze on the potion she’s stirring up and Stickles to the fire for some great dimension and detail…

My next card features the CAST A SPELL stamps and Confetti Cuts, as well as the new PRETTY PANELS: STARS Confetti Cuts, SO MANY STARS stamp set and the (previously released) DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER and OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die sets…

Witchie1

Detail shot of all the stars (OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts, PRETTY PANELS: STARS Confetti Cuts and SO MANY STARS stamp set) along with the witch hat from the CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts die set)…

The PRETTY PANELS: STARS panel is backed with a gray piece of cardstock cut from the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set (these are made to coordinate together).

Love the shape of that sentiment panel?  It’s one of the new dies in the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die set (more below)…

Witchie1Card

. . . . .

Crisp cool air, fall festivals, family gatherings…all things to be thankful for.

Introducing GIVE THANKS and the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

GiveThanksProductGraphicA

GiveThanksLabel_productgraphicA

The GIVE THANKS Confetti Cuts die set contains two label dies.  The larger die coordinates with the label image in the GIVE THANKS stamp set.  The smaller label is to use with other sentiments or as a layer on your cards, scrapbooks or other paper crafting projects.

I paired this set with the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts to create a fun giftie that’s perfect for a hostess, friend, teacher, family member (ok, well anyone, really!)…

BountyTote

I created my own embellishment by taking the apple (yes, the apple) from our CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set and flipping it upside down to create a pumpkin.  This was an idea I got from Confetti Crew member, Leigh Penner.  I tell ya, she is CLEVER!  I cut leaves from felt with the leaf swag die from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set.  The finishing touch is a button with twine and tulle that I popped on top of the pumpkin.

PumpkinDetail

This is just part of the gift set that I created!

I also made a shadow box with the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die and GIVE THANKS stamp set…

ShadowBoxandTote

To create this 3D pumpkin, I cut 5 of the large GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts, folded them in half (crease with a bone folder) and adhered them together.  I topped off with leaves from FRESH ‘N FRUITY Confetti Cuts and a button tied up with linen thread…

ShadowboxDetail

There is so much more inspiration to see using these stamps and dies that are releasing on September 8th!
