WEEK IN REVERSE

August 29, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Friday!

It’s the start of a long weekend and the kickoff to college football season…wahooo!  I hope to get some stampy time in, too!

I’ll be back tomorrow announcing the winner of this month’s Color Challenge, but today we have the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek at what the incredible Confetti Crew has been up to this week!

. . . . .

Many members of the Confetti Crew created cards this week for this month’s Color Challenge.  Scroll down a couple of posts, or click HERE to see their colorful creations!

Confetti Camera

August 28, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

The (long) weekend is in view and we have a fantastic CONFETTI CAMERA for you today!

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 oh-so-very talented, KATHY MARTIN

140822-Straws-III

Hello ‘fetti fans! It’s Kathy Martin here today to share with you a project I’ve been wanting to make ever since I first saw the HERE WE GO stamp set and HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts. I think this collection is perfect for creating invitations, cupcake toppers, straws and decorations for a little one’s birthday party. Just imagine all you can do with these adorable stamps and dies! Banners, thank you notes and more!

 140822-Straws-Details

140822-Straws-Tops

For this project I purchased some paper straws from the grocery store and attached the stamped and die cut pieces with a tiny glue dot. That’s it! For the display, I created a fun little tag with the TAG ME, TOO and CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts and attached it to a Ball jar with a pretty yellow grosgrain bow. To keep the straws standing up nicely I added a little rice to the bottom of the jar. Better yet, use some matching M&Ms! Have fun!

Say Hello…

August 27, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!

Today I have a couple of introductions (YAY!).

Last month, Savannah retired from the Confetti Crew.  We, of course, wish her all the best in all her endeavors.

This month, we welcome a new team member…

LaurelIntroPic

Hi! My name is Laurel and I live in sunny Florida where it is HOT HOT HOT! I am a Christian, wife and mother of two! I love Coke products, not Pepsi. I am short and love to laugh. I like breakfast for dinner and I am huge fan of the Harry Potter series. I am afraid of heights but am married to a pilot.  I was introduced to crafting a few years ago when I went to a friend’s house and saw some weird contraption. I asked her what it was and she said it was a cuttlebug. I laughed at the name and then asked what it did. Then she started talking about stamps. Stamps? Like postage stamps? Who knew?!? From then on, I took to crafting and never looked back. I am primarily a card maker but everything now and then I get daring and create something else. I would define myself as a very clean and simple designer. I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the Reverse Confetti Design Team. It is such an honor. Their stamps and dies are to die for!   I’m in love. You can find me on my blog at www.laurelbeard.org and my youtube channel at www.youtube.com/laurelscrafts.

While we are making introductions, I would like to introduce you to the September/October ‘Fetti Friend (guest designer)…

Tara

Hi, I’m Tara (Tar-ah). I live in Ontario, Canada about a 45 minute drive from Toronto. I’m married to a great guy, Chris and we have two awesome kids Hannah and Kieran and two cute cats Liam and Kato! I work full-time outside the home as an American Sign Language/English interpreter for a large non-profit organization. I started out scrapbooking shortly after my son was born…about 12 years ago. Several years later I stumbled across cute stamped images that could be colour with Copic markers…I was totally hooked!!! Soon after that, I started a blog and became involved in the on-line paper-crafting community and I’ve been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to design and or teach for several local scrapbooking stores, stamp companies and challenge blogs! I spend all my free time getting inky, colouring cute stamped images with my Copics and die-cutting until my hearts content. 

. . . . .

Last, but not least, I want to introduce you to SONNY!  He’s the latest addition to the del Muro crew!  Cute, huh?

CUTTING EDGE HOP

August 22, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Today we have a TON of inspiration on the blog!  This is actually the second post for the day.  If you came here looking for the WEEK IN REVERSE, just scroll on down after you are done reading this post.

What is this post?…it’s super fun and exciting!  Reverse Confetti is pleased to be a sponsor for THE CUTTING EDGE blog hop…

cuttingedge

You’re invited to play along in this blog hop!  It officially opened today and will close on August  25th at 11:55pm PST.  This hop is being hosted by the fabulous Paulina of Pretty Pink Posh.  You can link up your creation and find out more details on the PPP blog HERE.

I had so much fun creating for this hop!  I love using my Confetti Cuts dies and I used a *few* of them together on this card…

PPPHopCard

The main panel consists of the following Confetti Cuts:

TAG ME

CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS

PETALS ‘N POSIES

Detail shot of the flowers cut from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts set (the centers are stamped with images from the coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set).  The sentiment is from the LOTS TO SAY stamp set and is heat embossed…

PPPHopCardDetail

Don’t you just love those Pretty Pink Posh sequins?!

When people see my cards in person, they are often surprised at my layers and use of dimensional adhesive.  I thought I’d include a “depth” shot so you could see it on this card…

PPPHopCardDetail1

In addition to using the above mentioned Confetti Cuts dies, I also used the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts die set to create a tab tuck.

You can see the video how-to HERE.

I know you love die cuts just as much as me!  So, won’t you join Reverse Confetti and these great sponsors on this fabulous hop?

Today on Confetti Camera we have the sweet and talented, AMY KOLLING

AmyKIntroPic

Hi everyone!  With school having just started, I want to have a few teacher projects in my stash for this upcoming year.  Today I am sharing some bag toppers that are embellished with CLASS ACT and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts.  These will be perfect to have on hand to top off a gift card or a bag of sweets for that special teacher!

ConfettiCamera 8.21.14

I started with some kraft bags that I picked up some time ago at Target.  I used the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts for my bag topper scoring and folding the top of the tag over the bag.  My topper was stamped and heat embossed in clear embossing powder with the alphabet block stamp from CLASS ACT.  I added a stamped sentiment tab to my topper with a tiny staple and added a stamped and die cut apple from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts.

 Here are the toppers I created:

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

August 20, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

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, Confetti Crew member SARAH GOUGH has a super fun card and video to share!

. . . . .

SarahIntroPic

Sarah here, sharing how I like to color the trophy from the Winning stamp set with Copics. I’ll also show you the assembly of this patriotic looking card using SO STRIPEY, WINNING, WINNING Confetti Cuts and OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts!

Here’s my take on this regal combo…

08colorcard

This scrappy card is perfect for sending a sweet hello to a friend.

The gold cardstock is cut with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER die.  I love the glimmer of the gold, which I mirrored with the sequins.

The main panel consists of the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set, CHEVRON PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts and the heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shot…

08colordetail

The “oh hello” sentiment from the ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS set is stamped with white pigment ink on the navy panel.

One more shot of this card…
