CONFETTI CAMERA

April 17, 2014

Hello and Happy Thursday, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Thursday and time for 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 two of their favorites to pair together on their project.

. . . . .

Today on Confetti Camera, the spotlight is on the wonderfully talented LEIGH PENNER

Today, I have a card to share that I made combining two of my favourite sets:

Forever Fall & Lots to Say.

 LPCCApr14

I started with some a My Mind’s Eye patterned paper background.

I diecut a couple of banners using the small tag from Tag Me.

I did this by diecutting only the flagged end with the die and trimming out the rest of the banner

with my paper trimmer.

I repeated this process with some cardstock for the second banner, which I stamped

with the woodgrain pattern from Forever Fall.

In the same colour ink, I stamped the woodgrain heart (love this!) and trimmed it

out by hand.

I stamped my sentiment from Lots to Say and assembled my card,

adding a button and some twine as a finishing touch.

For my color challenge card, I reached for the set PAPER CRANE

Color

I love that origami images are trending within the paper crafting industry!  The PAPER CRANE set features, you guessed it, a paper crane along with several geometric patterns and sentiments.  I embossed the solid triangles on the bottom and then stamped the outlined triangles in white pigment.  I mimicked the triangles with the zig-zag stitching on the center right of the card, as well as the triangles embossed on the main image panel.

Detail shot…

Confetti Crush

April 15, 2014

Hello and Happy Tuesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Reverse Confetti is happy to announce that we are sponsoring the new CURTAIN CALL challenge and it is so appropriately named…CONFETTI CRUSH!  Stacey, one of the amazing members of the Confetti Crew hosts this challenge and we are so thrilled to be a part of it for this inspiration piece.

You can find out all about the challenge details, including how to enter HERE on the Curtain Call blog.

Here’s the inspiration piece…

And how I was inspired (by the colors and circles) using the CARTON CUTIES stamps set and coordinating CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts from our last release…

CurtainCall_card

In addition to the Carton Cuties stamps and dies, I also used the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER for added detail on the rectangular panel.  The sentiment is stamped on the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set and attached to a skewer.  I kept thinking it needed just a little something, so I added the white linen thread tied in a double bow to give it that finishing touch.  Although it doesn’t give any color to the card, I love the texture and detail that it brings.

Stacey here and I’m thrilled to be and share this super fun birthday card/sticky note holder!  Who says that BEBE BUNNY has to be colored?!  I adore this sweet bunny and love to see her framed up with the LOVE NOTE like this, all subtle and sweet!

Here’s a closeup of Miss Bebe Bunny!  The two stamp sets that I used for my project today are BEBE BUNNY and ALL ABOUT YOU…a perfect pair!

bebe note holder

At CHA in Janaury, one of the make -n- takes was a really cute (and simple) sticky-note holder!  I knew I wanted to try this at home using some of my favorite Reverse Confetti stamps and dies!

Here’s how!

First, score a 4 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock at 5 1/2 and again at 2 3/4.

score

Then, fold the 5 1/2 score line down (like you would for your tent-style card), then fold the 2 3/4 score line up the opposite way.  Attach some strong adhesive and attach another piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card stock over the top.fold and adhere

Then, your sticky-note holder is ready for decorating!

The Confetti Cuts: TAG ME, CLASS ACT, and LOVE NOTE were all layered up together to create a fabulous frame and focal point for BEBE BUNNY and some birthday sentiments from ALL ABOUT YOU.

After adding some yummy paper and embellishments including ribbon, button, twine, and epoxy hearts….and this sweet gift is ready for giving!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

April 9, 2014

Hey there ‘Fetti Fans!

Stop the presses…I got in some studio time and was able to create a fun tag set for this week’s WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS post.

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.

For this week’s segment, I want to chat about using the negative of a die cut, as well as adding some texture to your project.

Tags_Neg

I really had a lot of fun creating these tags and it was easy to whip up 4 of them that I can keep on hand and add to birthday gifts as needed.

First, I cut 4 large tags from white cardstock (TAG ME Confetti Cuts).

Second, I stamp the sentiment from LOTS TO SAY on the top portion of each tag.

Next, I used one of the large flowers from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set to cut out the flowers on each of the tags.

I then added burlap behind the flower cut and embellished with a flower and leaves from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set, along with enamel dots.

Tags_detail

Tags_detail1

I love the look and feel that the burlap adds to the negative space on these tags, especially in contrast to those enamel dots!

Since the back of the tag now had a small square of burlap adhered to it, I cut 4 more tags in coordinating pattern paper and attached them to the back to cover it.

April Creative Hop

April 8, 2014

Hello and Happy Spring, ‘Fetti Fans!

As you know we release on the 8th of every other month, but we still hop on the 8th of every month.  Being that today is the 8th, we have a fun and inspiration filled hop…and, of course, there is a chance to win up for grabs!

So, grab that cuppa joe, sit back and click on through this amazing hop.  Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Comments are open until this Thursday at noon and the winner will be announced on the Week in Reverse post on Friday.  Happy hopping and good luck!

In case of a break in the hop or if you miss a hopper, there is a full list of participants at the end of this post.

. . . . .

The project that I am sharing today is created from our SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die.  If you are not familiar with this die, you cut 2 and adhere them together to create a “tent” that can hold a variety of goodies (perfectly sized for snack size M&M’s and like treats).  For this SWEET TREAT TENT project, I used pattern paper and then I embellished it with the BEBE BUNNY image and sentiment.  As you can see here, I stamped her with her glasses on.  The glasses are a separate stamp and she can be created with or without them…

HoppyBirthday

This SWEET TREAT TENT is “topped” with the banner die from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set, along with some grosgrain ribbon, button and linen thread.

Below BEBE BUNNY is a large scallop border cut from our DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts…

WEEK IN REVERSE

April 4, 2014

Howdy, Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

TGIF!  I am ready for the weekend!  Are you?  (stupid question, huh?)

We have our first house guest in our new house and I am sure that we will be doing a little exploring in Houston this weekend.  Hopefully, I will have fun pics and such to share next week.  I may just duck into the studio to create a thing or two, as well. (crossing fingers)

Well, being that it is Friday, it is time for the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a look back on what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.  Many of them posted for the new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY.  You can see that post HERE, as well as all the info on how you can enter to win.

. . . . .

Amy is just too clever!  She used the coffee oval from BE A BARISTA to create this awesome pattern.  She paired it will a simple sentiment from our everyday sentiment set, LOTS TO SAY, to create a perfectly unique any time card…

3.27.14

Lisa created this fun card for a “put a bird on it” using CARTON CUTIES, CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again…Heather never fail to WOW with our PEACOCK PRETTIES set!  I love the pattern that she created and the sweet sentiment from ALL ABOUT YOU compliments it perfectly.

Sarah is featured on this week’s episode of Iron Craft.  I love her card using BE A BARISTA and the ARROW Confetti Cuts!

. . . . .

Have a great weekend, and as always…
