We have TWO new “critter” sets that are being added to our line-up and I think that you may just LOVE them!

Our first introduction today is the fun new set…

NO TOMORROW

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

Amy has come up with the cutest card featuring this set!  Ahhh, swoon…

I love how she used the LEAF LATTICE stencil in the background with our STONE ink.  You can also she she added clouds from the SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set and the sentiment “tab” was created using the new PIERCED ROUND TOP LAYERS Confetti Cuts.  The balloons and hats are from the MONKEY BUSINESS stamp set and are a fun complement to this card!

 . . . . .

The next “critter” set really isn’t a critter at all but rather the cutest princess you ever did see…

MAGICAL DAY

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

While you’ll be seeing mostly Amy’s projects for this release, I did manage to squeak this card in…

To start with, I used the STRIPED FRAME COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts atop the base.  From there, I added the “hill” created with the scallop circle from the POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts die set.  I added the princess (colored with Copics) and the sun and clouds from the WEATHER IT TOGETHER Confetti Cuts die set.

With a Sakura Stardust pen, I added a little shimmer to her dress and tassel…

. . . . .

We also have a couple more stand alone Confetti Cuts dies that are going to make card making so easy breezy and fun!  Check out these 2 new die sets…

HELLO SQUARE

THANKS SQUARE

These dies measure 4.25″, making them the perfect panel for your square cards. They can be used alone or dress them up with ink or other Confetti Cuts and stamps for unique and fun cards.

. . . . .

Amy created a matching pair of cards with a marbled background (video HERE) and she sponged HELLO and THANKS SQUARE Confetti Cuts with the new PISTACHIO and LAGOON inks.

To create the thickness/height of the die cut, Amy cut 3 and stacked them.  Such a simple detail that makes a lot of impact!

. . . . .

You’ve gotta see what the Confetti Crew has come up with using these fun new products.  You may even see a couple other new products along the way, too!  Don’t forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way to have a chance to win a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store!

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI

Greetings, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s the first day of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI for our July release!  We are so excited about this release that brings 16 new ink colors, 7 new stamp sets, 11 new Confetti Cuts die sets, 1 new 6×6 paper pad and a fabulous new cardstock.

Here’s the schedule for the next few days…

. . . .

Don’t forget to leave a comment here and on each sneak peek post this week for a chance to win!

In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion.  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic pinned to the top of our feed.

. . . . .

Well, ‘Fetti Fans, here it goes!  You know the drill…sit back, enjoy that cuppa and all of the Confetti Creativity we have in store for you today!

We have lots of introductions today including the new inks, papers and some of the new stamps and Confetti Cuts dies.  Let’s kick it off with our new 6×6 paper pad…

. . . . .

In addition to the 6×6 paper pad, we have one other paper product that I know that you are going to LOVE!  It’s our new PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  This heavyweight cardstock is pure white and is perfect for stamping solid images and Copic coloring.

 . . . . .

I mentioned during our May release that those colors completed our core Confetti Colors with coordinating cardstock; however, we decided to add more colors to our line of dye ink.  Why just ink, you ask?  I think that this has been addressed by some other companies in the industry, but I will reiterate that it is very costly to do custom paper colors and you have to order a lot, and I mean A LOT.  We felt this was the best way to provide new colors AND, while there is not coordinating cardstock in the new Confetti Colors, you will find that the new 6×6 pad (as well as all of our 6×6 pads) coordinate with our inks.

The 16 new colors of ink will be available as full size ink pads, re-inkers and cube sets.

 

Aren’t these colors GORGEOUS?!?  It was a fun, yet slightly tedious project of selecting new inks, as I wanted the best colors for our line up.  It was a lot of fun testing them out and putting them into their groups for the ink cubes…and then un-doing and re-doing the groups (just a few times to make sure it was perfect!).

. . . . .

In addition the the great paper and ink additions to the Reverse Confetti product line, we are introducing a few new stamps and Confetti Cuts today.  I want to make note that you will see projects from Confetti Crew member, Amy Sheffer, here on the RC blog during this release.  Between my surgeries and recoveries and her schedule, we had to play a little bit of virtual “musical chairs” and I am so happy to be able to share her beautiful projects here.

The first of a few introductions is a beautiful new floral set that can be used on so many projects…

BUILD A BUNCH

Of course, we have a coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

BUILD A BUNCH CONFETTI CUTS

This set pairs perfectly with our new large script stamp set…

SENTIMENT ESSENTIALS

Which also has a coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

SENTIMENT ESSENTIALS CONFETTI CUTS

We also have a few stand alone dies that you are going to LOVE!

SQUARED OFF COVER PANEL

PIERCED ROUND TOP LAYERS

. . . . .

Amy’s card features all of the above products.  She used a variety of new ink colors on this card, too.  Isn’t it gorgeous?  (Olive, Parakeet, Pistachio, Bellini, Coral, Magenta, Wisteria, Blueberry, Lagoon)

I love the pierced detailing on the PIERCED ROUND TOP LAYERS.  These are going to be a staple item on my desk, as they provide a unique, yet simple, layer to projects.

. . . . .

We are also introducing another beautiful floral set today…

BANNER IN BLOOM

BANNER IN BLOOM CONFETTI CUTS

. . . . .

Amy’s card features these stamps and dies, along with the new SENTIMENT ESSENTIALS stamp and Confetti Cuts.  She blended peach, bellini and coral (top to bottom) on the PIERCED ROUND TOP LAYERS panel.

Isn’t that strip of paper from the UNDER THE UMBRELLA 6×6 paper pad the sweetest detail?

I love how punched a hole and added the stitched reinforcer from the HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die set to the top of this “tag.”

. . . . .

You’ve gotta see what the Confetti Crew has come up with using these fun new products.  You may even see a couple other new products along the way, too!  Don’t forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way to have a chance to win a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store!

Design Team Announcements

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Monday!

Eep!!  The new release is just around the corner…

. . . . .

We have a couple changes to the Confetti Crew and I am excited to announce those, as well as our welcome our ‘Fetti Friend for July and August.

I am so pleased that these 2 ladies are now joining us on the Confetti Crew… (click on pics to go their blogs)

. . . . .

And, our ‘Fetti Friend for July and August is the wonderfully talented…

A little about Therese in her own words…

Hi it’s Therese and I am over the moon excited to be a Fetti Friend here with you for the next two months!   I live in Northern NSW in Australia, near some of the most amazing beaches in the world.  I work full time shift work and when I’m not at work I am in my crafty space creating, with my husband and two rescue cats to keep me company.  I have been making cards for 12 years and it got real when I started blogging in 2010 and then launched myself into the Youtube world in 2012.  A massive computer learning curve later (and still learning) it has been well worth all the effort and so much fun to do.  My ‘go to’ card style would have to be clean & simple but I will try my hand at anything and love to learn and share new techniques.

. . . . .

Needless to say, we are super excited that these ladies will be working with us!  Please join us in saying “WELCOME!”

JULY SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy JULY!

Wow, can you believe that this year is already half over?  I have to say that I am happy that this year is flying by because I am so ready for it to be over already!  Thank you all again for your love and support as I go through my treatments for breast cancer.  June was a little rough with 2 surgeries, but I am so thankful that my margins came back all clear and I am on the road to complete this seemingly uphill journey.

Right now, I’m back in the office and focusing on the new release that is just a week away.  I am sure you saw in our newsletter yesterday that we will be releasing SIXTEEN new ink colors.  This will complete our line of inks (for awhile now, at least).  I am super excited about all the new stuff coming out and I cannot wait to share (did you see the sneak peek I showed on Instagram yesterday?).

Mark your calendars for July 8th…of course, the Countdown to Confetti begins July 5th.

. . . . .

Ok, now onto the “meat” of this post!  It’s a new month and that means it’s time for a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  Here’s the new sketch…
