OCTOBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

October 1, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Can you believe it’s already October?  I’d love to say that fall is in the air, but it’s still hot and humid here in Houston.  I’m crossing my fingers in hope.

With or without the changing of the leaves, it is time for the new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

Oct14

The Confetti Crew has whipped up some fabulous inspiration, but let’s go over the details of this challenge first (notice the new dates!)…

There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.

The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 29th. The SFYTT button is  posted on the sidebar.  Click on it to be taken to the current SFYTT post and link list.

Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!

You may enter as many times as you wish.

There will be a winner each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 30th of each month.

. . . . .

I know that you will have a blast with this sketch!  Feel free to make it your own, as long the sketch can still be recognized on your project.

Here’s my take on the sketch using GIVE THANKS, CAST A SPELL, SO MANY STARS, GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts, CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts

SFYTTOct143

I love making my own patterned paper.  To do that, I used a couple of different stars from the SO MANY STARS on the green panel.

I added the the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts in orange on the side of the right rectangular panel because it was desperately needing a pop of color.  I love how it looks!

For my finishing touches, I added the crow from the CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts die set that I covered in Diamond Glaze, as well as a few sequins.

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

Hello and Happy Tuesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY, but instead of a card I have something extra special to share with you…

HalloweenBanner

I created this banner for the CKC event that we attended earlier this month in San Marcos, TX.  Just about everyone that came into the booth asked about the dies, etc.  Originally, I didn’t think that  I was going to blog it, but since it was such a hit I thought I would share it with you.

Do you recognize the banner?

Yes!  It’s the pennant from the WINNING Confetti Cuts die set…

I flipped it so that the point was down and cut it from a variety of pattern papers in my stash.

Then, I layered it with the smaller circle from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set and topped it with a stamped (LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS) pink circle, also from the WINNING Confetti Cuts die set.  To embellish, I cut stars from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set and topped them with green sequins and orange enamel dots.

Detail shot of a single embellished pennant…

HalloweenBanner_detail

I love when I get to “stretch” the use of my stamp and dies.  This is just one way to get more from the WINNING Confetti Cuts die set.  Don’t be too surprised if you see another banner or two using these Confetti Cuts and stamps for the upcoming holidays!

COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP

September 29, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and fellow coffee lovers!

Today, we are taking part in the COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP, both as a sponsor and participant.

We hope that you will not only enjoy all of the coffee themed goodness shared today, National Coffee Day, but also participate for a chance at some great prizes (including a gift certificate from Reverse Confetti)!

Want FREE (or really cheap) coffee today?  HERE is a list of places offering up a free cuppa joe…cheers!

CoffeeLoversBloghopLogo

You can find all the details and link list HERE at Chaitali’s blog, CutsCropsCreativity.

. . . . .

My card features the set BE A BARISTA

CoffeeHop1

To create this card I masked the mugs, starting at the top, to create a stacked look.  I then used my Copics to color them in fun bright colors.  Finally, I cut the stack out as one single image and then popped it up on the white card base.

CoffeeHop2

The sentiment is also from the BE A BARISTA set…

One more pic of my card…

CoffeeHop3

Just for fun, we’re answering some coffee related questions, too…

1. When did you start drinking coffee?

I’ve always enjoyed a cup, but I didn’t *really* start drinking it until after I had kids.  I guess that’s when I started needing it!

2. What is favorite brand?

I drink Folgers Medium-Dark roast at home, but I always enjoy getting a Starbucks.

3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had? Remember where and when?

I don’t think I’ve had one so memorable, yet.  Maybe I’m not that sophisticated when it comes to coffee (hence the good ol’ Folgers at home).

4. If I don’t drink my needed coffee, I will…

Let’s just say this…My 4 year old recently asked my why I am such a monster before I get my coffee.

That was actually in reference to me saying “Coffeeeeeee, Coffeeeeee” like a zombie, but the truth is that he’s not really that far off on the reality of my mood pre-first cup!

. . . . .

Come play along in this caffeine crazed hop!  All details and prize information can be found HERE.

CONFETTI CAMERA

September 25, 2014

Hello, hello, ‘Fetti Fans!

The weekend is in view and boy, oh boy, am I ready for it!  Football, birthday parties, my anniversary and my feet up…sounds like a plan to me!

But, alas, the weekend isn’t here quite yet.  However, we still have fun things happening right here on the Reverse Confetti blog.  It’s Thursday and 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 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 fun and fabulous, AMBER HIGHT

AmberIntroPic

Hello ‘Fetti Fans! Hope everyone is having a great week so far, I can’t believe it’s already Thursday! Thursday bring Confetti Camera here on the Reverse Confetti blog. This round, we’re creating ABC projects. I’m not big on projects or treat bags/boxes, I’m a card girl. Ha! But I’m also a VORACIOUS READER and love anything to do with books! I was thinking, what could I create that I could use for reading? A bookmark of course! I’m always on the look out for cute bookmarks, so it was really fun to make my own!

 PicC

I created a bookmark out of several Reverse Confetti Confetti Cuts and the PAPER CRANE stamp set. When going through my RC collection, I was looking for sentiments that I could use on a bookmark, and thought these sentiments from PAPER CRANE worked perfectly!

 PicA

I started out with my CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts and cut out the largest scalloped circle in turquoise, and then the next smallest plane circle in white watercolor paper. I made a little pallette of Peeled Paint distress ink and swiped the circles through the ink a few times and dried, then swiped through the wet ink and dried again until I got the amazing watercolor’y look I was going for. Unfortunately it got mostly covered up, but fortunately it’s with adorable RC Confetti Cuts, ha!  Next, I cut several flowers with the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts and stamped the matching stamps from PETALS ‘N POSIES in various ink colors. I cut a couple small labels from the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts and then stamped the sentiments from PAPER CRANE. I took a piece of ribbon and glued it in the middle of the scalloped and plane circles and that’s the bookmark. Super simple and super fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, hope you have time today to get inky!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

September 24, 2014

Hey, ‘Fetti Fans!

Today, we have a very special 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.

Confetti Crew member, Laurel has created a video with a fun technique using this month’s color challenge colors…

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

September 23, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Tuesday!

I just got back from an amaaaazing crafty weekend at a retreat hosted by Confetti Crew members, Amy Kolling and Laurie Willison.  When you open the door and see this sign, you know there are good times ahead.

Awesome

Needless to say, a good time was had by all!

. . . . .

It’s back to work now and it’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

This is actually a card that I made for the release, and you may have actually taken a peek at it in the store, but I have held onto blogging it until today.   It’s simple and sweet and I love the way it came out.

The sentiment is from the September release set, IN A BIG WAY it is next to a heart panel created from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS and the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts.

BigWay

Detail of the heart panel…

BigWayheartDetail

To create the heart panel, I cut 1 pink circle (CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts) and 1 white circle.  I cut the large heart (LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts) from the white circles and then popped it up on the pink circle.  Easy peasy and it gives this card just the “umph” I wanted.

For finishing details, I added aqua colored sequins topped with orange enamel dots to coordinated with the orange scalloped edge (DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts).

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:

Today on Confetti Camera we have the one and only (my bestie), SUSAN LILES

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!
