CONFETTI CAMERA WITH AUDREY
For my project today, I created a card with matching gift box and tag.  To create my card, I started off with an A2 card base cut from Polar White cardstock.   I die cut the Diamond Stripe Square Confetti Cuts die from Polar White cardstock and adhered it to the card base with a glue pen.  I  stamped the herringbone image from the Pattern Blocks stamp set in Piggy Bank ink onto the center portion of the die cut and inlaid it into the center opening. 
Then, I stamped and colored the large outline formal image from the Elegant Florals stamp set, and die cut it with the coordinating Elegant Florals Confetti Cuts dies. I stamped a sentiment from the A Friend Life You stamp set in Midnight ink in the center square, then popped the floral image up with foam tape just to the left of the sentiment.  To finish off my card, I added a scattering of clear sequins.
 I used the Clear Treat Box & Box Wrap Combo to create a coordinating gift box.  The clear box holds two bottles nail polish perfectly, and I thought it would be a fun gift for a friend.  I assembled the box and added some paper shred to the bottom of the box.  I die cut the box wrap from Piggy Bank cardstock, and stamped the herringbone image from Pattern Blocks in Piggy Bank ink on the center panel of the wrap. 
I die cut a tag from Polar White cardstock using the Rounded Top Tag Confetti Cuts die set, and stamped the herringbone pattern on the bottom 2/3 of the tag.  On it, I stamped a sentiment from the Simply Sentiments stamp set in Midnight ink, and just underneath, another floral spray from the Elegant Florals stamp set.  I added it to the gift box with coordinating satin ribbon and added a few clear sequins to finish off the tag.

Greeting, 'Fetti Fans! Heather here today to share a some cute treat packaging I created for some Hot Cocoa, using the fun new Scallop Bags & Tags Confetti Cuts, paired up with Christmas Circles and Drink More Coffee!


Here is this week's video detailing my process:



Isn't it fun how easy that is?!?!?



I love how versatile these dies are! You can customize them to whatever size treat you are packaging up, or use them for banners or card front details!



And speaking of versatile - I also love how the images from Drink More Coffee can double as hot cocoa or tea - or whatever other cozy drink you love to enjoy!


Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

NEW RELEASE NOW AVAILABLE

Greetings, 'Fetti Fans and HAPPY RELEASE DAY!  We are so tickled that our new release is now available.  This release contains 5 new stamp sets, 7 new Confetti Cuts die sets and a new 6x6 paper pad.  What's on your list?

We're having a hop today to celebrate the new release.  Prepare to be WOW'd by all of the fun project that the Confetti Crew & friends have to share with you today!
Before I get to my project for today, let's recap this release...

WINTER SOLSTICE 6x6 PAPER PAD

STAMPS

 
 

CONFETTI CUTS

 
 
 
 
 
 
. . . . .
My project today uses the new SCALLOPED BAG & TAG CREATOR Confetti Cuts die set (which I will be using for tons of Christmas goodies for teachers, friends and neighbors!) along with the new SNOWFLAKE MAGIC set...
 
 
I started by cutting 2 of the scalloped panels (BRICK cardstock) and scoring them at about 1" from the bottom.  I then cut the stitched detail window (die included in this set).  From there, I stamped the large solid snowflakes first in BRICK ink and then in white pigment ink (the opposite of how I stamped them on yesterday's card.
I added a window sheet to the opening in the front and then added the snowflake as an embellishment.  For the snowflake, I used white pigment ink on BRICK cardstock and then OLIVE and MIDNIGHT ink on PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.
To close it up, I just punched two holes in the top and then laced ribbon through and tied it in a bow.
. . . . .
As noted above, there are a lot of seriously awesome projects being shared today.  Here's a full list of everyone hopping...have fun!

Our final reveal is a whimsical winter wonderland set that has tons of possibilities depending on how you choose to stamp and layer it.

SNOWFLAKE MAGIC

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set
 . . . . .
I love playing with non-traditional colors when it comes to images like this.  For my first project today, I picked a pink palette that I thought was a lot of fun.  I pared this set along with the new GRID STITCHED TAG Confetti Cuts.
I cut the GRID STITCHED TAG from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and then added some tulle (I had it on my desk from the other day still) and a fish tailed PIGGY BANK strip of cardstock.  From there, I layered the snowflake which is stamped in FLAMINGO and PIGGY BANK.
I added the gold cuts and clear sequins for a little bling.
. . . . . .
A few years back, I saw I designer offset a large solid image.  I was so impressed with how it looked.  It's such a fun and creative way to stamp and get a really dynamic look.  I used this technique on this card...
To achieve this look, start with a dark piece of cardstock.  I chose our LEAD cardstock.  From there, stamp the image in a light pigment ink (mine is white) and then, when it is dry, stamp over the pigment image (slightly offset) in a dye ink color.  I chose RC AQUA for my color because it really pops against the white ink and dark background.
When the entire panel was complete, I added detail to one of the snowflakes using the other images in the SNOWFLAKE MAGIC set.  To finish it off, I adhered sequins and rhinestones.
. . . . .
Ok, it's time for me to send you on your way to see all the fabulous creations from the Confetti Crew and our Nov/Dec 'Fetti Friends.  Be sure to leave a comment on each stop along the way for a chance to win!

Today, we have a few new critters to introduce to you!  Our critters are definitely a favorite among the 'Fetti Fans and we know that these sets will warm your heart!
First up in our introductions is a sweet dog and cat set...

FUREVER FRIENDS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
Before I get to the card I made with these new products, let me show you the new Cover Panel that is being released this month...

SNOWBALLS COVER PANEL

While the name of this is "snowballs" and it's going to be perfect for holiday and winter themed projects, we really look forward to paring this with other sets for birthdays, celebrations and more!
This card uses all three of these new products...
I started with a PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock base and then added a layer of gold (from Michael's, I think).  From there I added the SNOWBALL COVER PANEL cut.  I love how the shimmer of the gold is subtle, yet makes this card sparkle.
Detail of the gold under the die cut...
For the main image panel, I used the shape of the HELLO & THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts and layered the images from the new FUREVER FRIENDS set along with a tree (TRIANGLE TREES) stamped on AVOCADO cardstock in AVOCADO ink.
The images are all colored with Copics. 
Aren't they so sweet!?!
. . . . .
Before I get to the next critter set, I want to reveal the tag that I sneak peek on the 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS TAGS post a few days ago.  This tag may be my favorite tag to date!  It features stitched details and a separate re-enforcer piece.

GRID STITCHED TAG

These cute critters are all bundled up and ready for you to bring them home (on the 8th, that is!)...

SNOW BUNNIES

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
. . . . .
My first project using these cute lil' bun buns also uses the new GRID STITCHED TAG Confetti Cuts die set...
The tag is cut from our STORMY cardstock and I then stamped the snow and sentiment on it before layering the clouds and skating image.
The image is colored with watercolors.
I just adore this stitched detailing on the tag!
. . . . .
My next card uses the new SNOWBALLS COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts along with the new SNOW BUNNIES set.
The base of the card is cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and measures 4.25" square.  From there, I layered a panel of MIST cardstock (perfect subtle falling snow color!) and the SNOWBALLS COVER PANEL cut.
I then popped up a (handcut) snow drift with the sentiment centered towards the bottom. I added some Stickles to the top of the drift for a little added detail.
I used the largest frame from the STITCHED SQUARES Confetti Cuts die set to frame out the card.  The image is colored with Copics and adhered with dimensional adhesive.   The heart is from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set and is topped off with a button and twine.
. . . . .
Ok, it's time for me to send you on your way to see all the fabulous creations from the Confetti Crew and our Nov/Dec 'Fetti Friends.  Be sure to leave a comment on each stop along the way for a chance to win!

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...

WINTER SOLSTICE

The first of our stamp introductions is a holiday play on one of the sets that we released in September (Boo Yea) than became an instant favorite with 'Fetti Fans...

CHRISTMAS CIRCLES

We have a fun new giftie creator to go with it, as well!  Introducing...

SCALLOPED BAG & TAGS CREATOR

Like its sister product, the original BAG & TAGS CREATOR, you can use the large panel flat or fold the bottom to create a tent like container to hold treats and such.  For this trio of gift card holders, I left the panels flat together...
To create this fun lil' bags, I first cut 2 of the scalloped panel from the new SCALLOPED BAG & TAGS CREATOR Confetti Cuts die set from our PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  I then brought out the (previously released) SMALL DIAMOND TILES COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts and cut that from SALSA cardstock and the new 6x6 paper pad.  I adhered the PREMIER POLAR WHITE panels together to create the bag and then layered the SALSA and striped cut panels on top.
From there, I added strips of coordinating patterned paper from the WINTER SOLSTICE 6x6 paper pad and attached ribbon.  The hanging tags are stamped with sentiments from the new CHRISTMAS CIRCLES stamp set and are cut with the darling scalloped tag from the SCALLOPED BAG & TAGS CREATOR Confetti Cuts die set.
These are perfect little gift card holders and I love the way the confetti tulle looks peeking out of the top!
. . . . .
Next up in the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI reveals is a new stamp and coordinating die set that is just "brew-tiful!" 

DRINK MORE COFFEE

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set, with bonus "coffee" word cut...
. . . . .
I had a lot of fun playing with this set and creating this duo of cards...
. . . . .
For the first card, I cut the word "coffee" out 3x from SAND cardstock and added it to DARK ROAST cardstock strips, which are mounted on a PREMIER POLAR WHITE panel.  That is all popped up on a panel that is stamped with the coffee mug (in SAND ink).  The striped patterned paper is from September's AUTUMN ABUNDANCE 6x6 paper pad.
Detail shots...
I also stamped the inside of the card with this awesome sentiment...
 
. . . . .
I have been on a watercoloring kick lately and decided to color those mugs with a few different colors and stack them up for a fun caffeinated card...
The base of the card is created with PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and then I layered the center panel with SAND and PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  From there, I added the sentiment and images.
Sentiment detail...
. . . . .
Ok, it's time for me to send you on your way to see all the fabulous creations from the Confetti Crew and our Nov/Dec 'Fetti Friends.  Be sure to leave a comment on each stop along the way for a chance to win!

Hey, hey 'Fetti Fans!  It's November and our new release is just around the corner!  The COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI starts on November 5th with full set reveals, inspiration and chances to win.  Mark your calendars so you don't miss a beat of this great release!

One of my favorite parts of new releases is having new guest designers join us.  I'm here to introduce them to you today.
. . . . .
Hi there! My name is Melissa Bickford and I live in the beautiful state of Maine with my husband and our two wonderful children. My love for paper-crafting started when I discovered scrapbooking after the birth of our daughter in 1998. I enjoyed that for many years and was then introduced to stamping and card-making in 2007. I fell in love immediately and the rest is history. I'm a big fan of bright, happy colors and love creating cards with words that will uplift and inspire others. I am so excited to be guest designing with Reverse Confetti and look forward to sharing my projects with you! 
. . . . .
Hi There! I’m Leanne West and I’m very honored to be here joining in on the fun for the next two months.
I live in Iowa with my husband of 17 years. We have two children - age 9 and 15 - and a 2 year old Cocker Spaniel. I have been stamping and making cards for almost 20 years now. I have seen and tried it all when it comes to paper crafting. My style has evolved over the years but my favorite cards to make have always included whimsical images paired with bright cheerful colors.
