WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

October 22, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Wednesday and time for a fun and kind of technique-y WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS.  I know what you’re thinking…two days in a row with techniques(s).  Parenthesis around the “s” because it’s the same technique, but YES!  I am having quite a bit of fun adding texture to my Reverse Confetti projects.  So much so, that I thought that I would share a little “how to.”

First, 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.  And, as I noted above, I am sharing how to add some fun texture to your Reverse Confetti cards and projects…with embossing paste.

So, here it goes…

First, what you are going to need are a stencil, embossing paste and color/shimmer spray (totally optional, but wait ’til you see how cool it looks with the embossing paste).  Of course, the other elements of your card, too.  I am showing you how to use the stencil and paste on a TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die cut…

Supplies

I cut out one TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die cut and then applied the embossing paste to it using a piece of cardstock (no fancy tools, here).  After I peeled up the stencil and allowed it to dry, this is what it looked like…

TagWithEP

I then sprayed the color spray on top of the embossed tag.  I used the amethyst that is shown above and it made gigantic mess because there was a clog in the sprayer (ugh!).  Fortunately, when I buy things I sometimes buy them in just about every color I can get my hands on.  Then it was off to the aqua color color spray, which I actually like a lot better!

I apologize that I don’t have a stop out picture showing just the die cut, embossing pasted, color sprayed tag, but here it is on my completed card…

(pardon the smudgy marks…that was me trying some new settings on the camera).

TreatsCard2

The main image panel has a sentiment created from the LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS stamp set, along with the “TREATS” die from the TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  The debossed circle is part of the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set.

Recognize the sketch?  Yep, it’s this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  There are still a few more days to play along for a chance to win.  All the details can be found HERE.

And, one more shot of the completed card.  I just love the texture and color pop of the tag behind the main image panel!

CONFETTI CAMERA

Hello there, ‘Fetti Fans!

Do you have your badge?  Get it HERE.

Fetti Fan Badge

. . . . .

The weekend is in view!  Do you have anything fun planned?  We are having a get together with another family for some Halloween fun.  I’m looking forward to preparing/eating Halloween themed foods and letting the kids make Zombie Goo (slime).  I’ll post pics of the good times next week.

Any other pics you want to see?…like, maybe a super duper sneak peek of the November release?  Hmmm… (wink).

. . . . .

I love Thursdays here on the Reverse Confetti blog!  Why?  Because it’s 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 have been focusing on ABC (anything but a card) project.  Prepare to be inspired!

Today on Confetti Camera we have the ridiculously talented (and just as sweet), LAURIE SCHMIDLIN

Hi Confetti fans! Laurie here to share a couple of fun Fall ABC Projects (Anything But a Card/Tag)!

Having a lot of kids means having a lot of cards and gifts to give around the Holidays! With Halloween and Thanksgiving approaching quickly, I thought I had better get started on those! Two of my sons go to a small rural school which has only a handful of students in it. I like to give out small gifts this time of year, but because I still have a toddler to tend to, I need something that I can mass produce in a short amount of time. This first box is one that I will be making for Halloween.

 Ghostie Box by Laurie Schmidlin

I started by stamping the fence image (from the SPOOKY CUTIES set) onto the acetate box using Black Stazon ink. A tip that I have found to help me when stamping on very slippery surfaces is to make sure I hold the stamp straight over the surface (not at an angle). I added the cute ghostie to the front of the box, popping him up so that he appears to be floating. I stamped the sentiment (from the SPOOKY SENTIMENTS set) using Black Stazon ink.

 . . . . .

My next box is one that I will be giving to my sons’ teachers for Thanksgiving. I started by using the TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die to create the treat box. To decorate the front, I stamped the woodgrain image (from the FOREVER FALL set) onto strips of matching cardstock and then sponged the edges a bit with a dark ink. The label was created by stamping the sentiment from the Give Thanks stamp set and cutting it outusing the coordinating GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die set. I filled the box with a clear bag of mixed roasted nuts. I also might add some homemade candied almonds…mmmmm!

I hope this has inspired you to come up with an easy to mass produce gift item! They don’t need to take a lot of time to be super cute and heartfelt!

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

October 21, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

I have to admit that most times I create just to create.  Those projects go into my stash to be used later.  However, when I create with a certain person/event in mind, I have so much fun.  That was the case with this card that I made for my hubby’s cousin’s upcoming wedding.

BestWishes

Flowers from the PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set, along with the coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts were an obvious choice, but I decided to do a slightly non-traditional color palette for this fun couple.  The sentiment is from the IN A BIG WAY sentiment stamp set and I love how it takes center stage here (on a debossed circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS).

Stop the presses…I got technique-y again.  I had so much fun with embossing paste the last time I used it, I went ahead and reached for it again to create the textured chevron background on the white panel. (Sorry, I don’t know who made the stencil, as it was a find at a craft show with no label).

I put the finishing touches on it with a few sequins…since every wedding card should have a little bling!

Detail shot…

BestWishes_detaill

Guess what?  I had so much fun with the embossing paste again that I made another card.  I’ll be blogging that tomorrow, along with how I took another “technique-y” step with it.

WEEK IN REVERSE

October 17, 2014

TGIF!

Ever have on of those weeks?  Yep, it’s been one of those.  I realized yesterday that I haven’t had a chance to create anything and today, I am setting aside some time to do just that.  I have a feeling my perspective on things might just be a little sunnier after that happens (and during, too).  What have you been up to creatively this week?  Have you had a chance to play along in this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY?  If not, check it out HERE and play along for a fun chance to win.

. . . . .

Being that it is Friday, it is time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to lately.

TIME FOR A…TAG TUESDAY

October 14, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Oh.My.Goodness.

I have to tell you that we (I) have been working on some super fabulous stuff for upcoming releases!

Prepare to be amazed.  Seriously.  I am so excited about what is about to be in store in the upcoming months.

I have had several people ask when the holiday release is coming out.  Our winter holiday release is on November 8th.  I promise that it is worth the wait.

For now, it’s TIME FOR A CARD TAG TUESDAY!

I’ve been having a lot of fun using the extra circles that are part of the brand new ROUNDABOUT stamp set.   I stamped them in pink and gold here on a TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die cut (this may be one of my favorite dies EVER) and stamped a sentiment from the new IN A BIG WAY stamp set…

BokehTag

The circles are stamped and stamped again in pink and orange and then I added the sequin stamped in gold for a fun bokeh effect. I didn’t want to take away from the colors in the bokeh, so I kept the reinforcer circle white and then added pink ribbon and tied it off with orange/white baker’s twine.

I’m keeping it short and sweet today, my friends.  Have a great day!

PLAY ALONG WITH THIS MONTH’S SFYTT

October 11, 2014

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s a big day here at the del Muro house…it’s OU/TX weekend.  If you follow college football at all, you know this is Big (yes, with a capital B).  I wanted to get married on OU/TX weekend 11 years ago…Tony looked at me like I had two heads.  With that, I learned that I may not be Sooner born or Sooner bred, but you better believe I am Sooner wed!  BOOMER!

For those of you that aren’t taking in the college football action today, and maybe have a little crafty time…come play along with the October Sketch For You To Try!

Today on Confetti Camera we have the fabulously talented, JONI ANDAYA

. . . . .

Hello Everyone, Joni here sharing the new ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set. I really love how this was created with so much possibility. To begin my card I cut a white panel just a tad smaller than the A2 card and adhere those triangles from the Confetti Cuts Pretty Panels: Triangles. I also adhere some of the stars from the Confetti Cuts Pretty Panels: Stars all over the panel.

1st pic

 Next, I cut a strip of patterned paper from MME and adhere at the bottom of the card panel. I then stamped the sentiment “birthday wishes” from the new ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set and die-cut using the Confetti Cut Circles ‘n Scallops and on the card panel. Next, I added some chip board flower from Prima and resin flower from Maya Road. I also added some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the card.

 3rd pic (2)

 Here’s the full view of the card.

 I hope you guys enjoyed this birthday card project. Until next time, thank you so much for stopping by.
