CONFETTI CAMERA

November 25, 2014

Hello and Happy Tuesday ‘Fetti Fans!

We’re gearing up for Turkey Day and Black Friday here in the Reverse Confetti office.  How about you?

. . . . .

Usually, you would find CONFETTI CAMERA on Thursday, but we’re moving it up this week for a special edition.

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 cards completed inside and out 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 follow the same “theme” 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.

Today on Confetti Camera we have the very talented, KATHY MARTIN

Hi, Kathy here taking on Camera Confetti’s ‘Inside & Out’ challenge to create a card design that’s finished on the inside as well as the outside. For my card I couldn’t think of a better way to say thank you than with a couple of sprinkled donuts! I adore the DONUT YOU KNOW stamps and DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts…if I could I’d add donuts to every single project, but then how would I show off my other ‘fetti faves? ;)

141114-Sweet-Thanks-Dimensi

And, the inside…

141114-Sweet-Thanks-Inside

Speaking of my ‘fetti faves… the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts set is one of them! I’d say I use this Confetti Cut on just about every other RC project! It’s perfect for framing focal points, like this strawberry frosted donut with chocolate sprinkles. Okay…who’s craving sweets now? ;)

WEEK IN REVERSE

November 21, 2014

Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

TGIF…really!  I thought it was Thursday on Wednesday, so imagine my surprise (and slight disappointment) when I came to realize that I was a day ahead of myself!  I even got on my daughter’s case for not having her weekly homework done for Friday.  Oops!  No wonder she was looking at me like I had two heads.  I’m going to go ahead and say that this is probably not the first or last time that she will think that I am crazy (or that I will make a parenting mistake, for that matter).

It’s hard to believe that just a week from now Thanksgiving will be over and the mad rush to Christmas will have begun (I’m guessing it already has for some).   For those that are traveling, I wish you safe travels and that everyone enjoys a safe and happy holiday (or regular day of the week for those not in the US).  Next week, there will be minimal blogging by the Confetti Crew, as I have asked them to spend time in front of their families instead of their computers.  We’ll have a few posts here on the Reverse Confetti blog.  Stay tuned for a fun announcement!

. . . . .

Well, it’s Friday and you know what that means!…

Let’s take a peek back at what some of the most talented gals on the planet (in my humble opinion) have been up to this week.

CONFETTI CAMERA

November 20, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!  It’s time for another installment of CONFETTI CAMERA!

Can I just tell you how much I LOVE this segment!?  It’s so fun to see how each of the Confetti Crew designers takes on the new challenge/theme!

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 cards completed inside and out 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 follow the same “theme” 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.

Today on Confetti Camera we have the super sweet and incredibly talented, HEATHER PULVIRENTI

HeatherIntroPic

Hi ‘Fetti Fans! Heather P. here today with my take on “Inside & Out” cards.  To create my card, I started by first cutting a bunch of wave pieces from white card stock using the Doin’ the Wave Confetti Cuts.  I then fiddled with the arrangement of the waves on the card front, and adhered them to the base once I was happy with their placement.  Next, I covered the two smaller wave pieces with Stickles.

 112014

I then die cut one of each of the snowflakes from the Let It Snow Confetti Cuts from silver glitter card stock, and attached them to the card front with pop dots.  The Tag Me Confetti Cuts was used on a piece of mint CS, and stamped with one of the sentiments from Seasonal Sentiments before heat embossing in white.  To create a banner, I simply trimmed off the top of the tag before attaching it to the card base.  To finish off the front, black enamel dots were added.

112014CUa

To create the inside of the card, I started by first stamping the sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments in light gray ink.  I then cut a few more wave pieces from mint, white and glitter card stock using the Doin’ the Wave Confetti Cuts.  The pattern was arranged, then adhered to the inside of the card.  I then die cut a snowflake from white card stock using the Let It Snow Confetti Cuts, and adhered it to the card base.  To finish up, I covered the snowflake with Stickles, and embellished the center with a black enamel dot.

Well, that wraps it up for me today, but be sure to come back tomorrow for more Reverse Confetti inspiration!

Hello and Happy Wednesday ‘Fetti Fans!

The Confetti Crew have been sharing some amazing tags lately, and I just love a pretty tag on a plainly wrapped parcel at Christmas time – tres chic! I’ve made some burlap based tags with lots of different textures using some of my favorite Confetti Cuts and a bright pop of non traditional color!

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

November 18, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans…

Happy Tuesday!  Instead of Time for a CARD Tuesday, I thought that I would have a fun winter/Christmas PROJECT to share with you today.

I love working with wood blocks and making lil’ gifties.  HERE is one that I did a couple of years ago (a pin, because my former blog is no longer in use).

. . . . .

TTSBlock

This project makes a wonderful gift without breaking the bank or taking up too much time.  The length of what you will need to make one might seem long, but chances are that you have a lot (most) of this stuff in your craft stash.

Supplies:

Seasonal Sentiments Stamp Set

Confetti Cuts Dies: Branch Out, Let It Snow, Tag Me (flag ended panel)

Ink

Wood Block (Mine is one of the photo blocks from Michaels.  They come with metal swirlies coming out the top, but are easily removed.  I think I picked them up for a $1 each last year).

Wood Balls

Patterned Paper

Felt (I used 2 different colors of green)

White Cardstock

Brown Cardstock

White Paint

Paint Brush

Stencil

Embossing Paste (I used translucent)

Glitter

Sequins

Rhinestones

Ribbon

Button

Linen Thread or Baker’s Twine

Jingle Bells

Hot Glue

Adhesive (Dimensional and Liquid)

TTSBlock3

The How-To:

1. Paint and sand wood block.

2. Adhere pattern paper to front of blog and apply embossing paste over stencil, sprinkle with glitter and allow to dry.

3. Cut tree pieces from felt and trunk from brown cardstock. Add white cardstock detail covered in glitter to bottom of scalloped tree. Assemble, add sequins & rhinestones and add to block using dimensional adhesive

4. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock piece cut from the flag ended panel from TAG ME Confetti Cuts.  Tuck under tree and adhere to block with dimensional adhesive.

5. Cut snowflakes from LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts dies and adhere to block, adding sequins, as well.

6. Paint wood balls, allow to dry.  Cover in adhesive (such as Mod Podge or Martha Stewart Glitter glue) and roll in glitter.  Allow to dry and adhere to base of wood block using hot glue.

7. For the topper, stack ribbon (in a double bow), snowflake (cut from LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts) and button tied off with linen thread and jingle bells.  Attach to top of block with hot glue.

November 17, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

We are so pleased to be part of Tracey McNeeley’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags this year (year #4 for her!) both as participants and sponsors!  You can find out more about how you can win HERE.

25 Days of Christmas Tags

. . . . .

I think you all know that I LOVE making tags so, of course, when we were invited to participate I jumped at the chance to create a fun tag!

Tag2

This is a shaker tag that is embellished with a 3-dimensional tree (BRANCH OUT Confetti Cuts).

I was recently asked how I create my 3d elements.  It’s really very simple…

1. Cut 4-5 of the same shape and score in half

2. Adhere back together along score line

3. Fan out and adhere to project

Detail of tree, felt heart (LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set) and shaker filled with tiny sequins and sentiment from the new SEASONAL SENTIMENTS stamp set…

Tag4

The bottom portion of the tag (TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die) is cut from white cardstock, covered (generously) in Diamond Stickles and sprinkled with (Martha Stewart) glitter. It is so sparkly!  I love creating sparkly snow like this on my winter/holiday projects!

One more shot of the tag in its entirety…

WEEK IN REVERSE

November 14, 2014

Friday Greetings ‘Fetti Fans!

I hope you all are staying warm and that the Polar Vortex isn’t chilling you to the bone.  It’s certainly a wee bit cooler than the “sub-tropical” climate than I thought we were moving to here in Houston!  Fortunately, I still have all my fleece pants (and have been proudly wearing them around the house).

I want to say THANK YOU to everyone that ordered new release goodies this week!  I cannot wait to see what y’all do with all these stamps and dies!  Be sure to link up your blog posts to our Facebook page and use #reverseconfetti on Instagram.  If you haven’t already, follow us!

It’s Friday, so you know what that means!…We’re taking a look back at what the Confetti Crew was up to this week in our…

For this round, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from cards completed inside and out from each of our designers. A couple of things to note:

Today on Confetti Camera we have my bestie and a super talented stamper, SUSAN LILES

Well, today is my turn to have the spotlight for our new Confetti Camera theme, Inside and Out.

 It’s not a new idea to complete the inside of your card, but it’s one that isn’t hardly thought of once the card front is finished.  I know whenever I show my mom a completed card I’ve done, she always wants to open it to see what’s inside!  (Usually nothing.)

 DSC03154

DSC03155

A little about my card:  I used the Fabulous Flamingos stamps and Confetti Cuts for the main focus of my card.  The greeting is from the Lots to Say set.  I had a little fun making everything off-kilter and I used several other Confetti Cuts dies to finish off my embellishing–the Double Edge Scallop Border, a flower from the Petals ‘n Posies set, and a couple of hearts from the Love Note Confetti Cuts.  I love how everything is nestled around and on top of the large scallop circle from Circles ‘n Scallops!  The inside of my card, carried the same theme, but I used the Sweet Thing set for the stamped sentiment.

The inside…

 DSC03156

DSC03157

I have to say that taking the time to do this extra step was super simple, as I already had everything on my desk to do it.  It’s a great way to use up those scraps and extra Confetti Cuts that always seem to be hanging around, waiting for a “home”.  (And my mom was thrilled to see the inside finished out this time!)
