WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

April 23, 2014

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

It’s hard to believe that the week is already half over…there is so much more to do (eek)!  I did get some serious studio time in this week and got some cute stuff done for Teacher Appreciation and the upcoming release.  I think you know which one I will be sharing with you today. *wink*

It’s Wednesday and time for 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 I’m focusing on easy 3D projects that can be used as gift for teacher appreciation…or any other time!

Using the SWEET TREAT TENT as the base for these projects, I created these…

The first one features a kraft panel stamped with the thick stripes from the SO STRIPEY set in white pigment ink.  I topped that panel off with a layered flower and leaves (PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts) atop a simple white banner (BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts).  This particular giftie can be used for teacher appreciation or for anytime that you just want to say “thanks” (great for favors, too).

Detail shot…I just love those stripes behind this fun flower!

This next one has a little more of a “teacher” feel to it, using the CLASS ACT stamp and Confetti Cuts set.  The base of the focal panel uses the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts.  I love the juxtaposition of the graph paper against those soft scallops!  That small heart border also is part of the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and it was just the finishing touch this project needed.

Please Welcome

Hello and Happy Monday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Today is a very special day here at Reverse Confetti…we are introducing TWO new CONFETTI CREW team members.  I am so very excited that these gals have joined “the crew” and will be sharing their incredible talents with us.

So, without further adieu, let me introduce…

Joni Andaya from PAPELL WITH LOVE

JoniIntroPic

Hello Joni here, I am a mom to a 9 year old girl with a very supportive husband. I also just recently acquired my Bachelor of Science in Information System concentrating on Software Engineering degree last month. I recently am working as a Web Developer at the moment. I started venturing in making cards when my daughter was born, but did not really create my blog until the year of 2012. I love to use bold colors and dimensions on my projects. I also love to use different elements that are available that can be incorporated on my projects as well. Most of all I love creating my own backgrounds.  I am so very happy and beyond ecstatic to be working with Reverse Confetti.  I hope I will inspire you creating projects using their amazing products.

. . . . .

And, Kathy Martin from CARD-BLANC

KathyMartinIntro

Hi! I’m Kathy Martin from North Carolina. I’ve been playing with paper…making cards, scrapbook pages, home decor and gift items for the past 11 years. I’m happily addicted! I’ve been married for 22 years and my husband Dan and I have a son, Christopher, who is turning 13 this month. We live with three cats, two parrots and pair of sugar gliders which keep us endlessly entertained. When I’m not knee deep in paper and adhesives, I enjoy cooking, baking, reading, antiquing, a little gardening and I’ve recently been hooked by the crochet bug.

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

LeighIntroPic

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!
