Thanks to everyone that played along in the July SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY(SFYTT). All of the cards were A-MAAAA-ZING! In the end, there could be just one winner and this card literally made me say “Whoa, WOW!” out loud…
What a week it’s been with our second release! It’s been a blast packing up orders and seeing all the different places Reverse Confetti is going! I can’t wait to see all your creations!…Don’t forget to upload them to the ‘Fetti Finds link list for everyone to see and for a chance to win free stamps (gotta love free stamps!). If you haven’t ordered yours yet…what are you waiting for? We LOVE fast shipping (and know you do, too) and ship daily Monday-Friday.

It’s time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we recap what the Confetti Crew has done this past week with Reverse Confetti stamps. Today we are going to have a little from this week and a little from last week because we did not have a Week in Reverse last week due to sneak peeks.
Amy Sheffer‘s new release project were outstanding, too, but I just had to share this card using DREAM IN COLOR and I LIKE YOU from last week. I just love the sweetness of the rainbow hearts and ribbons along with the coordinating sequins…
That wraps up our WEEK IN REVERSE. I hope you enjoyed taking another peek at these amazing projects. See you back here on Monday when we announce the new ‘FETTI FINDS. Will it be you? (Link list can be found by click on the button on the sidebar).
It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY…on Wednesday! (Since we had our NEW RELEASE HOP on Monday, we shifted our normal Monday and Tuesday posts by just a day).
On the new release hop, I showed you a tag that I had attached to an envie. Well, I had cut out several of those tags with the intention of being able to grab them and make more as I needed. When I sat down to make this TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY, I decided to grab one, along with the new ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS and WHOLE LOTTA DOTS sets to create this card…
I started by stamping the large dots from the WHOLE LOTTA DOTS set in white and then stamping the word “AWESOME” from the ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS set vertically in black ink. The pink and orange enamel dots were added to match the polka dot chevrons (from the ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS set). The black and white baker’s twin was tied around the pink ribbon to bring together the black on the tag.
Tags aren’t only for popping on a gift. I love being able to add tags to card, like I have shown here or even to an envie like I shared the other day. The color scheme and sentiment can easily be changed out on this design to create a card (or a tag) for anyone for any occasion!

The last day of the month:
The ‘FETTI FAVE will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog. This will be one of the ‘Fetti Finds from that month and they will be chosen based on their project and creative use of REVERSE CONFETTI stamps. The ‘FETTI FAVE will receive the ENTIRE NEXT STAMP RELEASE and be invited to play along with the Confetti Crew for sneak peek days and the new release hop.
Just a couple of rules…
Anything goes, as long as Reverse Confetti stamps are the only stamps used OR are the main focal point of the project.
No limit to the number of projects linked, but they must be posted to your blog or gallery that same week (no linking older projects).
Welcome to the NEW RELEASE BLOG HOP! Today, the Confetti Crew, the ‘Fetti Faves and a couple special friends are sharing some AWESOME projects using the FOUR NEW SETS. Sit back, relax and enjoy this hop. And, in case you get lost along the way, there is a full list of hoppers at the bottom of this post.
When I first started playing with this set, I knew that I wanted to do a gold embossed record. SOLID GOLD, BABY!…
Breaking out the embossing powder is kind of a big deal for me. I always end up getting it everywhere and driving me crazy. However, I was feeling a little adventurous and not only embossed the gold record, but I also embossed the WHOLE LOTTA DOTS along the left side of the card. I love black embossing on a black panel. Also, notice that you can easily line up this pattern to make it as long as you want/need…
My next project combines CELEBRATE CAKE along with ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS. I love making tags and I thought that it would be super cute to add it to an envelope to dress it up a little. The recipient’s name can be put on the dotted line is which is from our I LIKE YOU set. My sweet daughter, Ellie, turns 7 today and I will be writing her name on the line and filling the envie with some Despicable Me 2 movie tickets…
The tag was cut out with my Silhouette. The triangles at the bottom are the triangles from the CELEBRATE CAKE set, which can also be used as an ice cream cone or party hat. I am all about versatility, especially when it works with trends, too!
Detail shots (you can see I even broke out the embossing powder for this project, too!!)…
