I am definitely looking forward to this weekend! The weather is supposed to be beautiful and I am excited to spend some quality time outside with the littles and my hubby. I think I’ve convinced them to help me wash/clean out my car. We’ll see if they are anywhere to be found when it comes time for that, though!
It’s a super special weekend at Reverse Confetti, too! Sunday is our (monthly) blog hop and I promise you do not want to miss it!
. . . . .
Time to take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week!
Today we have another wonderful edition of CONFETTI CAMERA to share with you. Before we get to that, I want to remind you that Sunday we are having our monthly creative hop (remember, 8 is great!). This hop is going to be extra sweet and filled with so much Confetti Creativity!
. . . . .
CONFETTI CAMERA time!
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.

Up on Confetti Camera today is the super sweet, fun and talented STACEY SCHAFER…

Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans! Stacey here with my take on the “Inside Out” Confetti Camera segment!
Reverse Confetti has the most versatile and user friendly Confetti Cuts and Stamps.
We have a very special WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS to share with you today.
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 Amy Sheffer has a super clever way to “sprinkle” some fun into your cards and projects!
. . . . .
Hello ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy here today, with two fun ways to use your DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts sprinkles: in a shaker and to spell out letters!
I started by cutting three scalloped rectangles from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts for the shaker: red card stock for the top layer, acetate for the window layer, and a piece of designer paper for the background layer. On the top layer, I cut out a rectangular opening using the rounded rectangle from CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts. I used foam adhesive to sandwich my shaker layers together and filled the shaker with lots and lots of DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts sprinkles in rainbow colors.
For the sentiment (from DONUT YOU KNOW), I stamped in black ink on white card stock, then adhered more of those die-cut sprinkles on the sentiment panel, so it looks like the word “sprinkled” was spelled out of sprinkles. I won’t pretend this isn’t a tiny bit tedious, but I like doing stuff like this, and I think the end result is so worth it! What worked for me as adhesive was to squirt out a drop of matte multi-medium, then pick up each sprinkle using a pick-up tool, touch it lightly to the multi-medium, and then place it on the sentiment.
I die-cut the sentiment panel first with the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set, so that it would fit within the shaker frame, then cut the bottom notch using TAG ME Confetti Cuts.
I kept the background fairly simple to keep the focus on the sentiment shaker: two colors of twine, a white dry embossed background panel, plus some vellum and a tiny strip of designer paper. The embossed stars are coated with a clear Wink of Stella pen for some extra sparkle.
Birthday or not, I hope your day is sprinkled with lots of fun!
It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY and today I have a very clean and simple (CAS) card to share with you featuring PUPPY LOVE and the coordinating PUPPY LOVE Confetti Cuts dies.
I have to admit that when I started this card I did not have any intentions of making it clean and simple, but everything I did didn’t seem quite “right.” No matter what I did with paper, colors or embellishments I just wasn’t getting the results I was looking for. Then, I put these cute pups down on the card base and I love how they popped off the white. It’s *really* hard for me to do a single layer card (and be happy with it), so I popped them up on a white piece of cardstock that is matted with another white piece of cardstock…on top of more white cardstock. My husband jokes that I am going through my “white period.”
The pups are colored with Copics and I added a little rhinestone to her bow as a finishing touch. The heart sentiment is also die cut and popped up.
Yes, I’m blogging on a Sunday. That means that something fun and exciting is happening over here! It’s time for a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!
Here’s this month’s sketch…

In addition to the DONUT YOU KNOW stamps and Confetti Cuts dies, I also used the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die along the left side of the red chevron panel and the flag ended banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set on the two flag ended banners hanging from the top.
Detail shot of the card, along with the icing and sprinkles…
To get the glazed looked on the icing, I used Ranger Enamel Accents and then added glass glitter and sprinkles (cut from the DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts dies).

Of course, the Confetti Crew has some wonderful inspiration using this sketch, too!
