CONFETTI CAMERA

Hello, sweet 'Fetti Fans!
It's been a bit since our last post.  After the release, we went on a spring break vacation.  Before last year, we never really did anything for spring break and then I read an article about making memories with your kiddos and felt that we should "do something" over spring break and make those happy memories.  This year we chose Disneyland, upon it being a wish from my daughter who quietly sat through lots of spring training games last year and even came home with valley fever (no complications or symptoms, thank GOD!).  I hope that you all have had fun spring break memories made with your families, too!
. . . . .
We're doubling up on Confetti Camera this week with both Audrey and Tricia having projects featured...
For my Confetti Camera project, I created a pair of birthday cards for my niece and nephew.  All of the elements are the same, but I changed up the color schemes to include their favorite colors.  To create my cards, I started off with an A2 card base. 
The girl card uses Piggy Bank cardstock and the boy card uses Mist cardstock. On top of each, I layered the Sunburst Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die.  I used Flamingo cardstock for the girl card and Navy carstock for the boy card.  On top of the circle opening, I added a pinked edge circle using the Flowers For Mom Confetti Cuts dies, Sunshine and Avocado cardstock and patterned paper from the Paper Bliss 6x6 paper pad.  Then, I stamped and colored images from the So Super stamp set and diecut them with the coordinating So Super Confetti Cuts dies.  I stamped a sentiment from the So Super stamp set onto a white banner diecut, also included in the Flowers For Mom Confetti Cuts die set.  Once I had everything arranged, I popped all of the pieces up with foam tape, and added some white gel pen accents to finish off my cards.
 . . . . .
Hello everyone!  It's Tricia with you today with this week's Confetti Camera where we are sharing two versions of a card.   I decided to create a birthday card for Mom and Dad using Moon Men and several new products from this past release.   I created a shaker card plus I used a technique that Jennifer McGuire shared, here is a link to Jennifer's post.  I suspended my space men inside the shaker with clear thread so that they can shake and move around more.     
 
For Mom's card, I used Magenta and Piggy Bank ink and blended them both onto Bristol smooth card stock.  For the Dad card, I ink blended with Island Blue and Iced Aqua inks and followed the same process as I did for the first card.    I then used the Stitched Rays Cover Panel to provide some additional details.   To create my galaxy background, I embossed a few stars and flicked on white and black paint.   I added the galaxy panel to an A2 card base and then layered two layers of foam tape onto the card panel.  
 
The Moon Men images were stamped onto Premier Polar White card stock and die cut out with the Moon Men Confetti Cuts.   I colored my images from Moon Men with my Copic markers and then added the clear thread to the back with some washi tape.  You then stretch the thread across the panel and give a little bit of wiggle room for the image to move around.   For the second image, I made it a little tighter so that the shaker bits can move around underneath.   The sentiment comes from Word Up stamp set and I used the new Mom & Dad Word Duos Confetti Cuts.     The shaker frame is from the new Stitched Note & Frames Confetti Cuts.

Hooray, it's RELEASE DAY here at Reverse Confetti!  All of the new goodies (6 new stamp sets, 11 new Confetti Cuts die sets and a new 6x6 paper pad) are available in the store now.  Click HERE to shop all the new release products.
. . . . .
I have a funny card to share with you, but first a quick recap of all the new stuff released today...

6x6 Paper Pad

. . . . .

STAMPS

 
. . . . .

CONFETTI CUTS

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
. . . . .
 

Ok, I really hope you think that this is as funny as I think it is!  I'm calling all moms out there that hear their name 4,591,396 times a day.

 
 
Haha...I crack myself up! I really think that my kids should give this to me for Mother's Day!  Something tells me there is someone out there that is relating to me at this moment (surely there is, right?)!
I started with a white card base and cut the frame from the new STITCHED NOTE & FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set.  I added the sentiment strip (with hand cut grass in Lime Green cardstock) to the back of the frame and adhered it behind the frame and then popped the frame up on the card base.
The stamped sentiment is from the new WORD UP stamp set.
 
The lil' duckies from the new SPRING PALS stamp set and are colored with Copic markers and cut out with their coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.
 
 
Finally, I cut out the word "mom" with the new MOM & DAD Confetti Cuts die set - 4 times from Bumblebee cardstock and 4 times from Premier Polar White cardstock (layered behind the Bumblebee).
 
 
I find it very strange that both children rolled their eyes at me after I told them I went ahead and made my own Mother's Day card.  Haha!
. . . . . .

Ok, enough of me thinking that I'm so darn hilarious!  Time to send you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew and some very special friends have come up with for this amazing hop!

THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI FINAL DAY

By Jennifer del Muro

Hooray, hoorah...it's the THIRD & FINAL day of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!!  Tonight at midnight EST (or maybe even a few minutes earlier than that bc I like to get to bed!) all of the new products will be available.
A quick recap of our schedule this week before we introduce a truly gorgeous set to you...
On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST TODAY will be randomly chosen to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Winners for both the blog comments and Facebook comments will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog as well as on Facebook.
. . . . .
I am just head over heels in love with these final introductions...
FLORAL GEM
Coordinating Confetti Cuts...
To go along with the floral gem set is a sentiment set that all the sentiments fit inside the gem.  Of course, you can use it without the image, too.
SENTIMENTAL GEMS
. . . . .
I created a couple of cards to share with you today using all of these new products...
The FLORAL GEM set features a large gem image adorned with leaves and flowers.  Also included in the set are separate leaves and flowers that can be popped up or used separately on your projects.
On this first card, I popped them up on top of the large image.
Per the norm with so many of my projects for this release, I reached for the new STITCHED HEX TAG.  I used it as a layering panel between the main image panel and the LEAF LATTICE COVER PANEL (layered with Stone cardstock).
Can you see the sparkle that I added to the flowers with a Sakura Stardust pen?  I love the little hint of glimmer it gives.
The images are all colored with Zig Watercolor markers.
. . . . .
I like that this main floral gem image can be used in both horizontal and vertical directions.  As you can see, I flipped it up for this card...
Like the card above, I popped up some of the flowers and leaves.  I also added a few extra behind the image.  There is also a touch of glitter on this card.   This time, I added it to the gem.  It's hard to see in the pics because it's so light, but the gem is watercolored with a light blue/aqua color.
I used the new STITCHED NOTES & FRAMES Confetti Cuts here in Midnight cardstock.  I like how it sets off the main image.
. . . . .
Ok, it's time for me to send you on your way to see what the fabulous ladies of the Confetti Crew & Friends have to share with you today.  Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way!

. . . . .
Are you ready for some "super" reveals?
First up is a sentiment Confetti Cuts die.  This is much like the "hello lovely" die that we released in January.  It is one die and cuts out all the letters/words at once.
YOU'RE SUPER DUPER
I love playing with all the colors of our cardstock and I had these colors (Brick, Tangerine, Sunshine, Lime, Iced Aqua and Royal Purple) stacked up on my desk.  The stack caught my eye after I cut the "you're super duper" from our Premier Polar White cardstock.  Here's what I came up with...
The smaller sentiment is from the new WORD UP stamp set that we introduced yesterday.  And, I still can't put down the STITCHED HEX TAG Confetti Cuts and used it here as a layering element.  I actually cut 2 and then cut them in half and used the bottom half of each on this card (the top half has the hang hole).
Detail of all the pretty colors...
. . . . .
Keeping with the "super" theme...
SO SUPER
Coordinating Confetti Cuts...
Isn't this such a fun set?!?  The lil' doggo truly has my heart and I made him the superhero of this card...
The frame on this card is cut from Midnight cardstock with the new STITCHED NOTE & FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set.
Under the frame is a STITCHED RAYS cut from Stormy cardstock.  I used a gray Copic to go over every other line to add a little detail.
The "BAM" sentiment is set off with circle punches (Brick and Premier Polar White cardstock)...
One last detail shot of this card...
. . . . .
I think that I can say that we are all ready for spring already...am I right?  It may not be too spring-y outside, but here in the craft room I am making cute spring projects with this new critter set...
SPRING PALS
Coordinating Confetti Cuts...
Here's my card using this super sweet set along with the new DARLING DOTS 6x6 paper pad and STITCHED HEX TAG Confetti Cuts (seriously, I can't stop using it!!)...
This sweet bunny was given a little puffy tail for some added texture and dimension to this card...
Pro tip...tie together colors on your focal image with patterned paper.  Here, I had just a little bit of orange with the carrots.  By adding the tone on tone paper, it sets off the carrots and ties it all together.
Ok, it's time for me to send you on your way to see what the fabulous ladies of the Confetti Crew & Friends have to share with you today.  Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way!

Howdy, 'Fetti Fans!  It's the first day of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI and, to say the least, the Confetti Crew and I are so excited.  This is a pretty big release for us and I think that it holds something for everyone.  Today we have lots of reveals for you.  Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments of each of the blogs for a chance to win some Confetti Cash (money to spend here at Reverse Confetti).

Alright, you know the drill...sit back, relax and hop on through all the amazing introductions and inspiration that we have to share today!
First up is our new 6x6 paper pad...
. . . . .
We have a variety of WORD DUOS Confetti Cuts die sets coming out this month.  I think that all of these are "staple" words that should be part of every collection and they pair very well with our stamp sets, too!
And, the new stamp set made to go with them...
WORD UP
. . . . .
I had a bit of fun with these new goodies!  Check it out...
I had a bunch of our colored cardstock out on my desk and decided to create a couple cards with a retro(ish) feel to them by using the colored cardstock as stripes.
On this card, I used Iced Aqua, Navy and Tangerine along with "hello" cut from Stormy cardstock (matted with Premier Polar White).  The stamped sentiment is stamped in Stormy ink.
Detail shots...
 For a finishing touch, I added a few matte white enamel dots...
. . . . .
Before I get to my next card, I have 2 really great introductions!

STITCHED NOTE & FRAMES

I seriously cannot stop using this Confetti Cuts die set.  The versatile frames and notecard are lots of fun to work with and add to projects in different ways.

STITCHED HEX TAG

I'll admit, I've used this one as a panel more than a tag so far.  I love that it's big enough to create a great focal point on a card.
I kept with that retro vibe I was feeling for this next card...
I cut one of the STITCHED NOTE & FRAMES notecards in half to create the "long" panel atop the base of this card.  I then added Brick, Tangerine and Sunshine strips of cardstock.
The "hooray" is cut from Stormy cardstock and matted with Premier Polar White cardstock and mounted on the STITCHED HEX TAG cut along with the "you're simply amazing" sentiment from the new WORD UP stamp set.
Another detail shot...
. . . . .
If you've been following me for any amount of time, you know that I love my white space.  This card did not start out with so much white but as I came along in the design process, this is what I ended up with...
I really like how the red is just so striking against the all white card!
The frame is from the STITCHED NOTE & FRAMES.  I added the "love to love you" sentiment across the frame and then I cut down the CRISS CROSS COVER PANEL cut to fit on the back of it and then popped up that panel.
The word "love" is cut from Brick cardstock and mounted just above the stamped sentiment.
. . . . .
 I have another stamp and Confetti Cuts die set reveal to share with you before I show you how I used the new "mom" cut.  I am really crushing on the simple beauty of this set!

HATBOX FLORALS

The HATBOX FLORAL set contains a variety of sentiments that are perfect for Mother's Day, but also several that can be used throughout the year.  The floral image without the hatbox is the same as the floral image in the hatbox so that you can pop it up or use separately.
Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
And, here it is paired with the "mom" Confetti Cuts...
I used the large frame from the STITCHED NOTE & FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set along with the STITCHED HEX TAG on this card, both in Premier Polar White.
The floral image is stamped in Midnight ink on Cloud White cardstock and then colored with Zig Watercolor Markers.
I cut "mom" from Sunshine cardstock (matted with Premier Polar White) and mounted it on the banner panel going across.  I have to say, this might by my favorite card I'm sharing today.
Detail shot...
. . . . .
I have one last card to share with you today.  Well, actually 2 versions of the same card.  AND, what's really special about this card is that you can make it with Confetti Crew member, Kathy Schweinfurth, at this year's Simon Says Create.  This is just one of our make 'n takes.  I can't be there personally, but I will be with you all in creative spirit.  If you're going, please be sure to stop by and share your pics with us, too!  Note, there is an alternative sentiment that will be offered along with this one.
This card has the new HATBOX FLORALS large hatbox image as the main focal point along with a sweet sentiment for mom.  The LARGE EYELET COVER PANEL cut is simply cut in half and mounted a piece of Stone cardstock.  The card in the back has panel turned vertical, whereas the card in the front has it turned horizontal and lined up with the bottom edge.  Do you have a preference for the layout?
The image is stamped in Midnight Ink on Cloud White cardstock and colored with Zig Watercolor Markers.
For a finishing touch, I added a few moonshine sequins...
. . . . . .

UPCOMING RELEASE & NEW 'FETTI FRIENDS

By Jennifer del Muro
on March 03, 2019

Hello, 'Fetti Fans!  Our new release is just around the corner and we are SO EXCITED about it!  The COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI starts on Tuesday where we will have product reveals, inspiration and chances to win.  Mark your calendars and don't miss a thing!

. . . . . .
With a new release, we have new 'Fetti Friends to introduce to you this month.  These lovely ladies will joining us for March and April and will be sharing lots of projects and creativity with you.
I live in Yekaterinburg - a beautiful city in the heart of Russia - with my husband, two kids, a golden retriever and a guinea pig. I am a university teacher and a teacher trainer by day; and an avid cardmaker by night. I’ve been crafty all my life, but it’s cardamking and papercrafting that have stolen my heart (and much of my budget) over the last four years. My style is predominantly clean and simple, I think it really brings the image or the message to the fore; I also like playing with watercolour, and sometimes I like getting artsy. Recently I have discovered the joy of scrapbooking and have been having lots of fun creating layouts.  When I don’t play with my stamps and inks, I cook, read, try to be an adequate mom to two teenagers (not always successfully), try to get back in shape (not very successfully either), and generally enjoy this beautiful ride, aka Life.
. . . . .
Hi there! My name is Dana Kirby and I am so excited to be a Fetti Friend for the next two months. I am a wife to my Wonderful husband, Ric. We have been married for 23 years and have two Beautiful daughters. Both of our girls are in college, so we are empty-nesters and enjoying our time. I have been a paper crafter for over 20 years and fell in love with stamping (again) about 8 years ago when I discovered clear stamps. I am so excited to share my projects with all of you!!

CONFETTI CAMERA WITH ALI

 

Ali here, so glad to be joining you for another round of Confetti Camera! The Theme for this round is 2 versions and today my cards are bright colours vs soft colours! Making two versions of your card is actually such a good idea to do on a regular basis while you have your craft supplies out – 2 cards for the time of 1!

 

Here are the Reverse Confetti products I used on each card:

Diagonal Stitches Cover Panel Confetti Cuts

Mod Floral Stack

 

For both cards, I stamped out all of the sizes of the petals twice in the pink distress Oxide inks (Soft = Spun Sugar, Bright = Worn Lipstick). I stamped the Leaves (1 in each size, Soft = Shabby Shutters, Brights = Twisted Citron). I die-cut the ‘petals’ with the corresponding dies and cut them apart. I curled the leaves gently around a pecil barrel. I used a die cut circle scrap to adhere the petals and leaves in a flower formation.

 

 

I made the background piece by running the Cover Panel through my bigshot, flipping it over and running it through again – LOVE this effect!I I trimmed this piece backed it with 3-d foam, adhered to a Kraft card base and attached the flowers. I finished the card with some twine and sentiments from the set white embossed on Kraft card strips.

 

Hope you enjoy them and thanks for joining me on the Reverse Confetti Blog.
