DAY 2 WITH MARIA

on September 25, 2018
Hi, 'Fetti Fans!
We're continuing to feature projects from our 'Fetti Friend, Maria.  Isn't her work just gorgeous!?!
I am a Spring person,because I love the feel and smell of fresh grass and flowers.But autumn is beautiful when the leaves turn into beautiful colors and slowly falling. I used some watercolors to create a background for my Fall Foliage stamps.
I rarely use embossing powder but the gold embossing powder was perfect for this card. I wanted a soft look, instead of using the harsh black ink pad. I used the matching dies Fall Foliage Confetti Cuts to create a frame around the sentiment from Cotton & Thistles .

Hey, 'Fetti Fans!
Due to a little postal mix-up, our sweet 'Fetti Friends Maria did not get to play along with all the fun during the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI earlier this month.  We're happy to say that it all got sorted out and she'll be on the blog several days this week with what would've been her sneak peeks.  Be prepared to be inspired by all of these projects using the new goodies!
I used to love my Inktense pencils a bit more than markers.But with this fun release from Reverse Confetti I feel brave enough to use my markers again. For this card  I used the Abundant Autumn 6x6 Pad as the front of my card and the square die from
Bag & Tags Creator Confetti Cuts to cut a window for my scene. I used Frightening Friends stamps and the matching dies Frightening Friends Confetti Cuts to add that touch of spooky, yet cute Halloween.
To finish off the card, I used the Boo Yea stamps and the circle die from Bag & Tags Creator Confetti Cuts. Who's ready for Halloween? I am! Even if we don't celebrate this holiday in my country, I think this card will have a home very soon. Someone that is into spooky yet cute things.

CONFETTI CAMERA

Hello from Lisa Henke! As a paper crafter, it is always fun to add a little handmade touch to a gift, and this round of the Confetti Camera segment is the perfect excuse to do that. The theme is For a Friend! The Rachel Hollis book, "Girl, Wash Your Face" is all the rage and has been sitting at the top of the Best Sellers list for awhile now. I have been dying to read it, so I picked it up at the store last week. It's also the perfect  gift to give to your girlfriend, and it just took a few minutes to dress it up. Let's me show you. 
 
 
I love using pattern paper to make a band for lots of different packaging and then I just add some ribbon and a tag to complete the look. I don't like to measure, so after I cut three 2 inch strips of pattern paper ( I used Every Little Bit here) and attached the ends together, I  then gently wrapped the strip around the book until the end met and snipped off the excess. I wasn't worried about the seams, they are easy to camouflage with some ribbon and the tag. I tied on some olive ribbon and cut the Dashed Line Tag Confetti Cuts from the leaf print paper from Every Little Bit and attached that with some natural twine. 
 
 
For my accent pieces, I water colored some of the leaf images from the new Fall Foliage stamp set. After they were dried I cut them out with the Fall Foliage Confetti Cuts. The sentiment is from  Mod Floral Stack and was stamped in Lime Green ink onto a strip of Stone card stock. I used used a hole punch to create a hole and tied it on with a few of the leaf images. 
 
 
I created a coordinating card, sticking with the same color combo and using a few more of the Fall Foliage water colored leaves. I started this one with the cool texture of the Striped Circle Cover Panel in Stone card stock. I used the same pattern from Every Little Bit 6x6 paper pad that I used on the tag and added a strip over the card base.
 
 
 I stamped the sentiment from My Tribe in Olive ink onto a Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cut. I tucked in a few of the leaves I water colored and tied on some twine to finish it off. 
 
No gift bag needed, just tuck the card into the handmade paper band on the book and give to your girlfriend. She'll Love it! Thanks for hanging with me today. 

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS | NEW VIDEO

Hello! Heather here today to share two cards featuring the newly released Cotton & Thistles Stamp Set used two different ways, outside of the obvious of combining the jar and the floral arrangement!


Here is this week's video detailing my process:


I started these cards with a basic idea of what I wanted to do, but mostly I was just figuring it out as I went along. And...the total time of my video from start to finish was 22 minutes before I sped up and edited it to make it a more manageable size! So neither of these cards took very long!
Here is a closer look at the one using the jar, and adding pattern paper from Pattern Play 6x6 Paper Pad die cut with Stitched Rays Cover Panel:

The stars inside the jar are from Christmas Cheer and Moon Men, stamped with Bumblebee Dye Ink.

This second card also featured the Criss Cross Cover Panel die cut from Sand Cardstock, and mounted on a Cardbase created with Stone Cardstock:

Isn't that Criss Cross Cover Panel fun to leave loose around the edges? I love the texture it adds!

What would you like to fill your jar with? Do you like to take one stamp set and use it in more than one way?

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

NEW CONFETTI CAMERA THEME: FOR A FRIEND

It's a new round of Confetti Camera!  Our theme now is FOR A FRIEND.  In this weekly segment, one of each of our Confetti Crew designers takes this theme and creates something to share with you, our 'Fetti Fans.
. . . . .
Hello 'Fetti Fans, Amy Sheffer here to kick off a new round of Confetti Camera. Our theme is: For A Friend. There is nothing better than surprising a friend with a random act of handmade kindness! 
Today I've created a fall gift and card ensemble using a combination of old and new products.

For my card,  I started by die-cutting a Cloud White panel using the Stitched Rays Cover Panelthen did some light ink blending in Iced Aqua.

Next I used the Wheat Confetti Cuts die to cut some wheat stalks from SandCloud White, and Dark Roast card stock.

The jar, from Cotton & Thistles Confetti Cuts, is cut twice -- one in vellum and one in Cloud White. Both are stamped with the coordinating Cotton & Thistles jar image in Iced Aqua ink. I slipped the wheat stalks in between the two jar layers and secured everything with adhesive.
Finishing touches include a button, some twine tied around the jar, and some clear enamel "water drops."

I created my coordinating gift bag using the new Bag & Tags Creator Confetti Cuts. 

To create the bag, I cut two panels, scored each at 1" up from the bottom, then adhered those two bottom flaps together. Before I adhered, though, I stamped the floral image from Autumn Blessings using white pigment ink. The sentiment, from Fall Foliage, is stamped in Dark Roast ink.

The top of the bag is scored 1/2" down from the top so that I could fold the pinked edge over. I punched two small holes and secured the front and back using some white twine, a button, and a sweet little tag from the Flower Wrap Confetti Cuts die set.

Here's a look at the bag from the side. Inside is a cello bag filled with some yummy caramels -- perfect for fall!

Greetings! Heather here today to share a card featuring the Fall Foliage Stamp set  and Coordinating Fall Foliage Confetti Cuts with some non-traditional colors for leaves! Sometimes it's fun to color images in a completely different way than you would originally think - and a great way to stretch this stamp set well beyond the fall season!


Here is this week's video detailing my process:


And here is a closer look at the finished magic:



I think it would be fun to do this in lots of different colors combos - there is just something about that blue though, don't you think?

And this lovely simple pattern paper from the new 6x6 Abundant Autumn is perfect for the canvas for all these leaves.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

NEW RELEASE CELEBRATION AND BLOG HOP

By Jennifer del Muro

Hello, 'Fetti Fans...
OH YEA, IT'S RELEASE DAY...We're just a wee bit excited for today and all the new goodies that are available now in the Reverse Confetti store!
. . . . .
We're celebrating the release with a SUPER DUPER FABULOUS blog hop filled with bunches of inspiration using the new products.  There is a full hop list at the end of this post.  Before I get to my projects, let's recap what's available now...

ABUNDANT AUTUMN 6x6 PAD

. . . . .

STAMPS

. . . . .

CONFETTI CUTS

. . . . .
When I sit down to put together a stamp set, whether it's just a concept (i.e. I converse with my illustrators about the set) or an actual set I design, I like to incorporate a way to make the stamp set usable year round.  Now, sometimes that is just not possible, but it's definitely a nice bonus when it is able to work out that way.  So, with that in mind and a little brainstorming I came up with a couple cards that are OUT OF THE BOX fun uses for what are actually labeled as "Christmas" stamp sets.
It is no secret that I LOVE creating for Halloween!  Seriously, I could create for Halloween all year round.  Sidenote:  I don't particularly care for dressing up, just making stuff to give to others or decorate my house.
I thought it would be fun to take the CHRISTMAS CANDLES set and create a spooky, fun scene...
The candles are colored with Copics and I added the jar from the new COTTON & THISTLES set.  The spider and web images come from the (previously released). TOO CUTE TO SPOOK.  I stitched the web he is hanging from with my sewing machine (which clearly needs to be tightened or something...lol).
The foliage accents are from the new FALL FOLIAGE set.  They are colored in browns to keep with the "darker" feel of the scene.
The base of the card has a STORMY cardstock panel on it and is layered with the LARGE DIAMOND COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts.  To get the webs behind each of the openings, I made a little mark where to stamp (there was a little bit of masking, too).
The sentiment flag is stamped with the "get your spooky on" sentiment from the new FRIGHTENING FRIENDS set.  As for finishing touches, I added the cotton webbing and sequins.
. . . . .
I really loved playing with the new TRIANGLE TREES set.  Yesterday I showed how you could turn those trees upside down to create a banner.   I kept those trees upside down to make this fun card (that I'll be holding onto for a few months)...
Yes, I made an Easter card in September...with a "Christmas" set!  Aren't those carrots cute, though!?!
Under the main image panel is the new TRIANGLES COVER PANEL popped up on the card base.  I love how the triangles all play together on this card.
For the carrot tops (made from TANGERINE cardstock), I took a scrap of LIME GREEN cardstock and cut off one inch sections, folded it in half and then cut the fringe with scissors.  To top it off, I added a double bow of twine.
The sentiment is from the (previously released) HIPPITY HOPPITY set...
. . . . .

I mentioned that we have a SUPER FABULOUS hop today and it's time for me to send you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew and some very special friends have come up with using the new goodies.

. . . . .
We've covered Halloween and Fall so far during the Countdown and now it's time to turn our focus on Christmas.  We have THREE Christmas themed sets in this release and a couple of them are versatile enough to use throughout the year (yay!!).
Our first introduction is a beautifully illustrated set that I have had a lot of fun with!

CHRISTMAS CANDLES

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
. . . . .
I've already set this card aside to give to my mom at Christmas.  She loves candles and I think that this card will speak to her...
I started with a white card base and then added gold glitter paper for a special sparkle.  From there, I layered the (previously released) SUNBURST COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE.
I then added a circle from the LACY SCALLOP CIRCLES Confetti Cuts die set (cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE).  The 5 candles on top are colored with Copics and popped up with dimensional adhesive.
I stamped and colored the holly and evergreen images and added some rhinestones for "berries" with a little extra bling.
 . . . . .
While I really enjoyed coloring the red candles, I knew that I wanted some white candles to make a card with.  I stamped and "colored" them with a Copic blender and gray.   While this is a Christmas card for sure, I think these white candles would be fitting for a sympathy card, too.
The base of the card is covered with a STONE cardstock panel and layered with the new CRISS CROSS COVER PANEL.  The candles, greenery and glow are attached to a piece of vellum cut from the PIERCED ROUND TOP LAYERS Confetti Cuts.  That is popped up (with very strategically placed pop dots).
I stamped the sentiment with Staz-On at the bottom of the panel.
. . . . .
Next up in our introductions is mod take on the traditional Christmas tree. 

TRIANGLE TREES

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
. . . . .
My first project using this set is a very clean and simple card that let's the TRIANGLE TREES take center stage.
The trees are popped up on the TRIANGLES COVER PANEL which I have cut down to fit this 4.25" x 4" inch card (will still fit in an A2 envelope).  I added a strip of STORMY cardstock to the top and bottom for a little added detail and I think that it really "grounds" the card (really at a loss for a better way to describe that...LOL).
The trees are all stamped in LIME GREEN ink and then layered with a slightly offset TRIANGLE TREES cut, also in LIME GREEN.  The heart is from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set and I love the pop of red that it gives!
 . . . . .
Ok, so you think you're just seeing Christmas stuff today, but I LOVE Halloween and had to make a Halloween project using this set!
I turned those trees into a banner...
First, I created a sack/bag with the new BAG & TAGS CREATOR Confetti Cuts die set.  It's actually cut from a lunch sack.
I stamped the wide striped tree from the TRIANGLE TREES stamp set in STORMY ink and then added the "boo yea" sentiment (stamped in MIDNIGHT) from the new BOO YEA stamp set.  The banner is strung together with black twine and it's all popped up on the sack.  The ghost from the HALLOWEEN BITS Confetti Cuts die set was the perfect finishing touch!
If you haven't tried our PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and inks...just look at that coverage!
This project could easily be transformed into just about any occasion.  Red/green for Christmas, Pink/Magenta or Navy/Baby Blue for a baby shower or any other combination of colors for a birthday celebration.
Here's one last peek at this cute lil' giftie (fits a Reese's pumpkin perfectly!)...
. . . . .
Alright, just one more stamp/Confetti Cuts die set reveal and then I'm sending you on your way to see all the holly jolly goodness that the Confetti Crew has been up to.
I am 50% Swedish and have always loved the Scandinavian style of things.  I came across a darling pic of some holiday gnomes and knew right away that they needed to be drawn into a stamp set!

HOLIDAY GNOMES

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
. . . . .
Aren't they just too cute!?!
The first project I made with this set is a card featuring "Papa Gnome..."
Can you tell that I am loving the new TRIANGLES COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts?  I used it here popped up on the card base. 
Papa and the trees are colored with Copics and layered on the simple snowy scene.
The snowflakes are stamped in MIST ink.  I stamped and cut 3 of them and then added sequins and rhinestones for a little sparkle.
The sentiment is stamped in MIDNIGHT ink on the snow drift (hand cut) that is topped with some Stickles.
. . . . .
My final project for today is a hostess or housewarming gift tag.  I've tied it onto a kraft corrugated container filled with yummies.
The tag base is cut from the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die set.  I made it a little bit longer by adding the PREMIER POLAR WHITE and STONE cardstock strips.
The images are colored with Copics.  I absolutely LOVE how this gnome came out!  Those blonde braided pigtails!  I'm not trying to toot my own horn, just saying how much I enjoyed playing with this set and Copics.  I do have to tell you that there was almost a Copic catastrophe!  The chevron stripe across her dress is colored in a dark blue Copic ink and I didn't realize how juicy my marker was.  It was one of the last things colored and the marker almost barfed blue all over the image.  I might have cried if that happened.  Fortunately, my crafting guardian angel must have been watching over me!
I was thinking I was done with this tag (except for gluing everything down) when I thought to stamp the stars in white pigment ink on the STORMY tag.  I'm glad I did because I love how it looks!
. . . . .

Are you ready for some more Christmas cheer?  Check out what the Confetti Crew came up with using these new goodies and set that alarm...new products will go live at MIDNIGHT EST TONIGHT!
