CONFETTI CAMERA

January 22, 2015

TGI {almost} F, ‘Fetti Fans!

I had so much fun creating yesterday and will have lots to share in the weeks to come.  If you follow Reverse Confetti on Instagram, you saw live shots as it was happening.  Don’t follow us on Instagram?…we sure wish you would!  We’re just now getting active with it (a little behind the times, huh?), but you’ll see sneak peeks of projects, and product, along with day to day activities from yours truly.

. . . . .

Now for a little camera I created myself…

ConfettiCameraRCblog

Yep, it’s Thursday and time for CONFETTI CAMERA! {yay}

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 as 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.

. . . . .

On camera today is the very talented, JEAN MANIS

Hello, Fetti’ Fans! It’s Jean Manis bringing you this week’s Confetti Camera Challenge. I’m sharing a card created with the Here We Go stamp set and its coordinating Confetti Cuts for the In and Out theme. As the mother of two boys, I have always been on the lookout for cards featuring forms of transportation. To connect the outside and inside of the card, I created an air scene on the front and a below-the-water scene on the inside.

ConfettiCamera-Outside-JM

Confetti-Camera-JM

The Lots to Say sentiment set has the fun “Just a Note to Say…” sentiment, which I used for the outside, leading the recipient to open up the card to the “Happy Birthday.” In both cases, the sentiments were heat-embossed.

ConfettiCamera-Inside-JM

I used the Oh My Stars Confetti Cuts set to create the big star and the Stars Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts to create some small stars. I wanted to tie the outside in with the yellow submarine on the inside. I also wanted some color above the dark blue sea to set off the “Happy Birthday” sentiment.

The card base is a light blue. With the Double Edge Scallop Border I cut darker blue cardstock to resemble ocean waves.

Both the airplane and the submarine were attached to the card with dimensional adhesive for some depth.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

January 21, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Hump Day!

Hopefully, you are having a splendid week.  So far, so good over here in the land of Reverse Confetti.  I’m looking forward to some serious time to create today.  I have about 5 projects on my agenda and am I hoping to knock out at least 3 while the kiddos are in school.

Well, it’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for another fabulous edition of 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, Confetti Crew Design Team member, Sarah Gough has this special card to share with you…and a great video showing how she put it all together…

Adding depth to stamped images is easy with a little watercoloring…and it makes for a super pretty card!

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

January 20, 2015

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

I hope those of you that had a 3-day weekend thoroughly enjoyed it.  I spent the weekend throwing a party for my “baby” that is now FIVE, working on new stamp and Confetti Cuts designs (oh.em.gee…you are going to love what we have designed/planned) and basking in the 70* sunshine that we were blessed with for the past couple of days.  Oh…and I got a little bit of “create time” in, too!  That’s what I call a pretty darn good weekend!

Well, it’s Tuesday so it’s time for TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

Shaker cards are back in a big way!  I remember creating these at my neighbors stamp camps just a *few* years ago and it’s exciting that the trend has come back around, especially with sequins being so hot, too!

GrowWithLove

To create the window, I used the large rounded rectangle panel from the new DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set and one of the PRETTY PANELS that I had on my desk.  I simply put both of them on top of the gray heart paper and ran it through my Big Shot and viola…window!

The acetate and the backing that the sentiment (from LOVE BLOOMS) is on, are also cut from the large rounded rectangle from the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set.

On the top of the frame, I stamped and die cut flowers and leaves from LOVE BLOOMS with the coordinating LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts.  Don’t you love that color?  It’s Papaya Cream pigment ink from ColorBox.  It just looks perfect with these flowers!

GrowWithLove1

As you can see, I used a variety of sizes and colors of sequins.  These soft subtle tones play well off of the flowers and coordinate nicely with the other colors on the card.  While we thought (and thought!) about bringing sequins into the Reverse Confetti product line-up, we ultimately decided to pass.  I get all of my sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Cartwright’s Sequins (they have a TON).

One last shot of all these pretty sequins…

GrowWithLove2

. . . . .

That’s all for now!  I have more stamp and Confetti Cuts designs to work on (squeeeeeel).

LaurieIntroPic2

Hi there, it’s Laurie here! I am seriously loving the theme of this Confetti Camera! I

will admit to hardly ever stamping on the inside of my cards, but when I

do I absolutely love it! I need to remember to do it more often…it

just makes the card even more special! :-)

 Old Friend by Laurie Schmidlin

One of my favorite things about this new LOVE BLOOMS set is how I can

create a detailed looking card in a very short amount of time! Using the

coordinating LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts, I cut out the flowers and then

popped them up for some added dimension. Because the papers that I

chose to use are more on the dark side, I wanted to lighten things up

just a little by stamping the LOVE BLOOMS outline flower stamp using

white ink.

 Old Friend (inside) by Laurie Schmidlin

For the inside, I carried over several of the design elements from the

front. I stenciled some stripes on, and then stamped the sentiment

using a black pigment ink. I had a small scrap of the patterned burlap

paper that I used on the front left over, so I added it along with some

more stamped and die cut flowers. I didn’t want to add too much bulk to

the inside, so instead of rhinestones I added glitter to these flowers.

When I do stamp on the inside, I rarely leave room to write. I will,

instead, write my note to the recipient on a blank piece of paper so

that they will be able to reuse the card if they want to! That also

frees me up to stamp as much as I want to on the inside without feeling

limited! Hee!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

January 14, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Welcome to a very special edition of WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!  Confetti Crew member, Amy Sheffer has a few fabulous creations to share with you!

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.

. . . . .

Hello, Reverse Confetti friends, it’s Amy here today with some cute swivel-flap Valentine riddles. As soon as I saw the square tag, it reminded me of this little swivel cover on my bed post that covers up a bolt hole. To access the bolt, just rotate the cover. Inspired by that, I thought I’d try making some sort of project where the tag rotates and underneath is a surprise. First, I thought about having the tag cover a circle window to a treat box. But then lift-the-flap books came to mind, and I knew some punny Valentine riddles would be perfect! I looked up lots and lots of Valentine riddles, keeping Reverse Confetti products in mind, and came up with quite a few ideas using various images and sentiments, plus some computer-generated text. I’m showing four of those ideas today.

First, a look at all four Valentines closed, where you can see the riddles:

RC_WIW0114_valentinequartet

And here they are with the tag rotated out of the way to reveal the answers:

RC_WIW0114_valentinequartetopen

I started all four Valentines with the large rounded rectangle from DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts. Each riddle and answer is printed and/or stamped on a SQUARE TAG and tied onto the rounded rectangle. I kept the same color scheme for all four, embellishing each with a white embossed row of dots from I LIKE YOU, a row of hearts from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, a strip with a stamped XOXOXO from CRUSHIN’, and a “Happy Valentine’s Day” sentiment from PUPPY LOVE. The riddles are all done with computer-generated text, then stamped with dotted lines from ROUNDABOUT.

Bat Valentine:

The bats are from SPOOKY CUTIES. Inside, I stamped Batty for You from SPOOKY SENTIMENTS, the word “I’M” from SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS, and another bat from SPOOKY CUTIES.

 RC_WIW0114_valentine1A

RC_WIW0114_valentine1B

Envelope Valentine:

The envelope and postal stripes are from NORTH POLE WISHES. Inside is computer generated text die-cut into a scalloped circle using a die from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS, and a trio of hearts from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts

 RC_WIW0114_valentine2A

RC_WIW0114_valentine2B

Whale Valentine:

The whale is from HAPPY HARBOR. Inside I stamped “i love you a” from BE A BARISTA onto pink card stock, heat embossed in white, and die-cut into a scalloped circle using CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts. The red heart is die-cut using HEART TO HEART Confetti Cuts, and the word “ton” is done by combining individual letters from SPOOKY SENTIMENTS.

 RC_WIW0114_valentine3A

RC_WIW0114_valentine3B

Pink Car Valentine:

The car is from HERE WE GO. Inside is computer generated text, another scalloped circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS, a heart die-cut from PUPPY LOVE and a smaller heart die-cut from LOVE NOTE.

 RC_WIW0114_valentine4A

RC_WIW0114_valentine4B

It’s fun to look at stamps and sentiments you already have, mixing, matching, combining in new ways! Here are a few other ideas:

  • the fish from HAPPY HARBOR + o-fish-al sentiment from SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS.
  • the fish from HAPPY HARBOR + hugs and fishes (use stamps from I LIKE YOU, making the word “fishes” from individual letters)
  • the plane from HERE WE GO + “it’s plane to see” on the top tag, and “you’re the Valentine for me” underneath
  • one of the sweet poochies from PUPPY LOVE + the “I Woof You” sentiment, also in PUPPY LOVE
  • a Valentine-themed donut with heart sprinkles + “donut you know” on the outside, and “you’re the best” on the inside, all from DONUT YOU KNOW
  • the acorn from SAMMY SQUIRREL or FOREVER FALL + “What did the squirrel say to his true love on Valentines Day?” on the outside and “I’m nuts about you” underneath
  • the cat from SPOOKY CUTIES + “you’re purr-fect for me, Valentine”

I’d love to hear your ideas as well! Thanks for joining me today!

I have several new projects to share with you using these new products.  I just couldn’t stop playing!

My first card features 2 large heart images from the playful and sweet new HEART TO HEART stamp set, as well as the HEART TO HEART Confetti Cuts dies, PRETTY PANELS: BIG CHEVRON Confetti Cuts die and DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set (rounded rectangle)…

LoveToLove1

The PRETTY PANELS: BIG CHEVRON Confetti Cuts die is layered with the rounded rectangle from CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts (made to play together).  Detail shot…

This next card uses the new PUPPY LOVE stamp set, PUPPY LOVE Confetti Cuts dies, HAPPY HEART DAY Quick Card Panels and SQUARE TAG Confetti Cuts die (and, previously released, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die)…

PuppyLove2_1

Detail shot (isn’t she just too cute!?!)…

. . . . .

Next up is a project I created using the new sets HERE’S THE STORY, RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW, as well as the new DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set (and, previously released, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set)…

Frame1

This is frame that I picked up from a bin at Michaels.  It’s been sitting in my “do something with this” stash (everyone has one of these, right?).  I took out the glass so that I could make my project more dimensional.  I was able to make it a shadowbox(ish) by putting in the mat (covered with a piece of patterned paper cut to match) and then pressing down the tabs on the back to secure it.  I then added the back of the frame on top of the tabs that were pressed down and secured to frame with tape.  I was fortunate that the back of the frame sat on top on the tabs and was flush with the frame base.

Detail shots…

Frame3

Sewn hearts (cut from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts) and sentiment from HERE’S THE STORY

Frame2

. . . . .

This card uses the new LOVE BLOOMS stamps and LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts die set.  I love how clean it looks and how the flowers pop off the white background…

LoveBlooms2

Detail shot of the heat embossed sentiment (on circle cut from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts) and florals…

. . . . .

One more project and then I am sending you on your way to see all of the other Confetti Crew creations.

This final project features the new SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS stamp set and SQUARE TAG in a way that is perfect for a guy’s Valentine or for anytime you want to give someone a sweet pat on the back…

YouRock1

I “popped” Pop Rocks into a chevron glassine bag and paired it with an embellished SQUARE TAG Confetti Cuts die (flag-ended piece from TAG ME Confetti Cuts and stars from OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts) and attached it with a mini clothespin.  Detail shot…
