on November 10, 2015

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the first day of our three day event, CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS!

Over the next three days we are going to give you the ultimate in Christmas inspiration!  Today, we “READY TO PARTY!”  You’ll see all things party related using Reverse Confetti products.

A full list of Confetti Crew members participating today is toward the end of this post.  Be sure to stop by at each blog so you don’t miss a thing!

. . . . .

Today, I am sharing a simple HOT COCOA BAR.  I say “simple” because this really came together quite quickly.  I’ve seen much more elaborate set-ups, but I wanted to share something that was definitely “do-able.”

Included in this HOT COCOA BAR:

-Cocoa Mix

-Mugs with “Swizzle Sticks” (embellished paper straws)

-Chocolate Dipped Straws (easily homemade, but these are from Home Goods)

-Condiments: Mints, Cookies and Jumbo Marshmallows

Each of the labels is created from the new GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts die.  To embellish, I used the LAYERED SNOWFLAKE Confetti Cuts die set, the new HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die set, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set, CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set and the STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set.  The lettering is all done with the new ALPHABETICAL Confetti Cuts stamp set.

Although the chocolate dipped straws are store bought, I did personalize them a little by adding the word “STIR” using Brilliance Graphite Black Pigment Ink…

The swizzle sticks are green and white paper straws that I picked up in the Michaels dollar section and are embellished with snowflakes from the LAYERED SNOWFLAKE Confetti Cuts die set (heart from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set)…

Hello ‘Fetti Fans…

We are so excited to announce that the November release is now available in the Reverse Confetti store!  Today, we are celebrating with a new release hop.  A list of all hoppers is near the bottom of this post in case of any breaks, etc.  We just know you’ll love this one more dose of “Confetti Creativity” we have for you today with the new November products.

Here’s a little recap of the new products…

I have a few projects to share with you today using these new products.

This first one uses the new GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts die set…

Also on this money holder tag is the WREATHS Confetti Cuts, HOLLY Confetti Cuts, WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts and WINTER WORDS COORDINATES that we released last month and the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts.

Detail shots…

The holly leaves are cut from vellum and the word “merry” and holly berries are cut from glitter cardstock…

. . . . .

Here’s another project using the GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts die set.  This time I did not use the gift card “hole” for it, but rather kept it as a simple tag…

DSC06145

Also used on this tag is the new HANG UPS Confetti Cuts (re-inforcer),  WITH LOVE stamp set and the (previously released) WHOLE LOTTA DOTS stamp set, along with the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die set and HOLLY Confetti Cuts die set.

DSC06141

. . . . .

These next tags use the TOPPED OFF TAG along with the new HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die set and the new Holly Jolly QUICK CARD PANELS

DSC06196

Going from left to right, I added just a little more detail to each.  The tag on the left is simply cut from the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die and then I added the HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die cuts to the top.

The middle one is also cut from the TOPPED OFF TAG and has the HANG UPS detail on it, but I also added the small wreath from the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set and embellished it with sequins and rhinestones.  Here’s a detail shot of this tag…

DSC06162

The one on the right is the most embellished.  As with the others, it is cut from the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die. I added the “topper” to it, along with a re-inforcer.  Under the topper is a scalloped edge cut from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.  The bottom has both an embellishment from the HOLLY Confetti Cuts die set along with a sentiment panel stamped with the new WITH LOVE stamp set.

. . . . .

Just one more project to share before I send you on  your way…

DSC06192

This tag features the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts, BUBBLY TAG TOPPER Confetti Cuts, HANG UPS Confetti Cuts and the new WITH LOVE STAMP SET…I just love how these all play so well together!  I tied off the top with some the STRAWBERRY TWINE we now have in store.

Detail shot of the colorful bubbles…

We’ve been taking note of a new trend…DONUTS!

{photo credit}

Just looking at that picture is making my mouth water!

Introducing DONUT YOU KNOW stamp and Confetti Cuts dies…

DonutYouKnowProductGraphic

The DONUT YOU KNOW stamp set is full of cute, witty and sweet (of course) sentiments (and sprinkles!) that pair perfectly with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.

CCDonutYouKnowProductGraphic

This is a set of 6 Confetti Cuts dies: the donut base, the icing, the hole to cut the center of donut and frosting, as well as 3 different perfectly sized sprinkles.  You’ll be whipping up the cutest baker’s dozen in no time!  The best part?…no calories (and they’re super cute!).

My first card today features both the DONUT YOU KNOW stamp and Confetti Cuts die set together to make a sweet birthday card.  You could switch up the colors of the sprinkles to personalize it for a boy or girl…or even your recipient’s favorite team.

DonutCard1

Creating these donuts is much easier than making real donuts.  Here’s the how to:

1. Cut the base of the donut with a hole in the center

2. Cut the icing, also with a hole in the center (lining up center holes, adhere to base)

3. Cut your sprinkles out and adhere to frosting

Of course, there are lots of ways to dress up your donuts!  I’ve had tons of fun playing around with different ways to create a variety of different frostings.

For this particular card, I used Ranger white enamel (that I’ve been hoarding for a few years now), along with a white and silver glitter mixture that I picked up at Michaels (there’s a pic of it a little ways down on this post).  I sprinkled the hearts and rectangular sprinkles in two different colors of pink to create the perfect (girly) confection.

DonutCard1detail1

And, as you may know, sprinkles tend to fall off here and there so I made a sprinkling of sprinkles around the donuts on the card.

DonutCard1detail2

The sentiment is stamped on the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set and sewn on the card.

Notice anything else on this card that is new?  It’s subtle, but it’s there!

Introducing the new CIRCLE GARLAND Confetti Cuts…

CircleGarlandProductGraphic

On the card above, I layered it under my main image panel to give some dimension and detail without taking away from the focal panel.  I also used this Confetti Cuts die on the inside of my card that I peeked on Monday for the Caring Hearts Blog Hop.

. . . . .

My second project featuring the DONUT YOU KNOW stamps and Confetti Cuts is this sweet door hanger.  Our HANGING OUT Confetti Cuts door hanger die has been quite popular and it’s perfect for projects like this.  On this project, I used it in an upright manner.  It still fits perfectly on a door handle, or I could add it to a small bottle of milk…

ElliesHanger

What’s inside?  Real donuts, of course!

ElliesHanger2

The scalloped edge detail was created by cutting a pink piece of cardstock with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.

ElliesHanger1

I love this sentiment that plays on words!  It’s great for friends, teachers and neighbors!  I added the name using the LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS stamp set on the flag-ended panel from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set…

ElliesHanger3

For this frosting, I used t-shirt paint (!!), the glitter from Michaels that I mentioned above and some cute lil’ sequins…because some donuts need bling!

Here it is in the making…

DonutTip

. . . . .

My final project today is a tag cut from the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die set along with the new DONUT YOU KNOW stamps and Confetti Cuts…

DonutTag

For the icing on this donut, I used Diamond Glaze over the pink cardstock and then added my sprinkles.  Here’s pic that picks up on the how shiny the frosting is…

There is so much more inspiration to see using these stamps and dies that are releasing on November 8th!

Donut You Know

Donut You Know That You’re The Best? We love that donuts are trending right now and Donut You Know is the must have donut set! This witty and fun stamp set features 7 donut themed sentiments (a couple are mix and match) along with 3 sprinkle images that coordinate perfectly with our Donut You Know Confetti Cuts die set.

 Set of 11 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

“Hope Your Day…” sentiment 2.1” x 1.4”

CONFETTI CUTS: Donut You Know

The Donut You Know Confetti Cuts die set coordinates with the Donut You Know stamp set. No need for any cooking skills here. It’s as easy as 1-2-3…Cut the base of the donut along with the hole for the center; create the icing also with a hole in the center and finally sprinkle on hearts, stars, sprinkles…and a lot of love! You’ll have a baker’s dozen in no time at all. And the bonus is that these are calorie free!

This stand-alone Confetti Cuts die is sure to bring lots of fun detail to your paper crafting projects.

It’s a great detail for both the outside and inside of your cards, as it will stretch all the way across an A2 sized card. Layer it or make a long string of garland on your paper crafting projects.

I’d love to tell that spring has sprung, but it really seems like the winter of “polar vortexes,” “thunder sleet” and “cobblestone ice” is holding on for a bit longer.  Here’s to wishing that those terms are all put to rest soon and that spring will actually, well, spring!  You’ll notice that a few of our March sets are spring themed, and I think of spring, I can’t help but think of bunnies.  Cute, fluffy and sweet…they were the perfect inspiration to our new QUIRKY CUTIES line.

Let me introduce to you, BEBE BUNNY who is spring at heart, but can easily be used for occasions throughout the year…

BeBeProductGraphicSheet250

. . . . .

My first project for today features darling BeBe Bunny on an everyday “hello” card, perfect for sending to a special someone just because.

BeBeCard

As you can see, she is facing to the left.  This is so she can be paired with her friend, FREIDA FOX, if you wanted to put the two together!  (Yes, those are the little things I think about!).

I’m really happy to be breaking out my Copics again for the Quirky Cuties line!  To get the gray color on her “fur,” I used my blender along with T1, T3 and T5.  Here’s a detail shot of the some of the coloring, as well as the tab die from our new Confetti Cuts set: OFFICE EDGES

BeBeCard_detail

Full reveal of the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts:

OfficeEdgesConfettiCuts

This set features 5 dies that are the perfect element additions to your paper crafting creations.  You may be thinking, “What is that long skinny oval for?”  When you pair it with the large tab, you are able to make an envelope closure like shown on this card…

CardClosure

It’s SUPER simple to create this closure.  Here’s how I did it on this card…

I started with a panel of cardstock measuring 3.25″ x 10″.

Tutorial1

Tutorial2

Gate fold your card and then…

Tutorial4

Tutorial5

Open up your card before running it through your die-cutting system.

Tutorial6

Remove die and washi tape and this is the cut you will have.

Tutorial7

Tutorial8

Now, you can gate fold it once more and close.

Tutorial9

I embellished the top/left side of this card using pattern paper and a piece of white cardstock cut with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.

Tutorial10

Again, the completed outside of the card with my daughter’s name stamped with letters from LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS onto the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts set and paired with the heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set…

CardClosure

And, the inside featuring stamps from our newest KEY WORDS COLLECTION set: ALL ABOUT YOU stamped onto the scalloped rectangle LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts. For a little extra detail, before I adhered the panel to the card base, I stamped the large dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS in white pigment ink on the base.

CardClosure_Open

(See those flames?  You’ll be seeing those again later this week. *wink*)

Introducing the set, ALL ABOUT YOU

YOUProductGraphicSheet250

As with all of our KEY WORDS COLLECTION sets, you can use the “key word” YOU to build sentiments like shown below.  This particular set also features the “second half” of a sentiment that you can use like shown or on the inside of a card.

Say hello to BeBe.  She’s the second character in our QUIRKY CUTIES line drawn by Olivia McDaniel.  She’s both quirky and cute and a great image not only your spring and Easter projects, but for a year round cards and gifties, too.  This line art image is great to color and/or paper piece.

WEEK IN REVERSE

on January 17, 2014

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Wow…Friday already!  This week has flown by! Anyone else ready for the weekend? We are having my lil’ man’s birthday party this weekend.  It’s a Batman theme and most of the RSVPs have been girls.  Looks like I’m going to be figuring out a way to incorporate some pink here and there for this party…good thing that comes naturally to me!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and it’s time for WEEK IN REVERSE…where we take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Val’s own (not so) lil’ (anymore) man had a birthday this week and this is the fabulous card that she created for him.

SO STRIPEY, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS, TAG ME Confetti Cuts

CHA was wonderful and I am so glad that I got to share a lot of the time there with two of the Confetti Crew team members: Stacey Schafer and Amy Kolling.  Stacey made these super darling burlap sacks filled with a personalized stamp for each of us.  How sweet is that!?

SWEET THING, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, ARROW Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts

Lisa really made me say, “Awww” out loud when I saw this over the top cute (and foxy!) card.

Here’s another one of Lisa’s cards with a much more masculine feel to it.

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Please note, next week we will not be blogging and the Reverse Confetti office will be closed December 24-26 so that we may cherish time snuggled on the couch with hot cocoa, kiddos and “Elf.”  I hope that you will find yourself doing much of the same…or at least the like.  Reverse Confetti wishes you and your families the very best of the holidays.  May it all be fun, festive and free from stress!

. . . . .

TGIF and it’s time for WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek at all the fun and creative projects that the Confetti Crew has put together this week!

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!!

Just a reminder…

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: LOTS TO SAY

By admin
on November 07, 2013

Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans!

Welcome to the third and final day of our sneak peeks, also known as THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  Tonight at midnight EST we will releasing 5 new stamp sets and our first 2 Confetti Cuts!

Before I get too far into this post, I want to say THANK YOU for all the love and support that you have given Reverse Confetti over the this first six months.  It’s truly been an amazing adventure so far and I look forward to growing more with YOU!

. . . . .

It’s release week!  Here’s what’s going on…

NewReleaseSchedule

There are literally just hours left to leave your comments on sneak posts and on our Facebook page (direct link to comment thread HERE).  The winners from the blog comments and Facebook comments will be posted here on the Reverse Confetti blog and on Facebook today at 5pm EST.  Good Luck!

. . . . .

As you can imagine, I’m always on the lookout for trends and unique concepts to bring to Reverse Confetti as stamps and dies; however, there is something to be said for “the basics.”  That’s one of the reasons that we started with tag dies.  Those are one of the things that I feel is a staple item that every paper crafter should have in their stash.  Another thing on that list that I feel is a must-have, or staple item, is a good BIG sentiment set and that is just what we are revealing and previewing today.

Introducing LOTS TO SAY…

. . . . .

There are two members of the Confetti Crew that recently welcomed lil’ ones into their families and these are the cards that I made for them using the soon to be released sets,  LOTS TO SAY and SO STRIPEY.

For Val, the first time grandma…

LittleBabyBigLoveCAS

I used most of the same elements and colors to create this one for new mama (again!), Laurie.  Can you see the TAG ME Confetti Cuts panels that I snuck in there?  They are the white panels behind the navy circle…

LittleBabyBigLove2

The onsie was cut out with my Silhouette and then stamped in VersaMark with the even straight lines from SO STRIPEY.

I’m constantly reaching for a notecard to say something to someone.  Sometimes it’s just to let my daughter’s teacher know that she will be going home with a friends or to tell my super sweet neighbor thanks for bringing me a bowl of soup (yes, I have a neighbor that does that!!).  For these notes, and many others I created some notecards for the “just a note to say…” sentiment.  This is also a quick and easy gift that people will love and use.  This set is actually headed over to that sweet neighbor of mine, so I packaged them with envelopes in a clear box (purchased online) with a TAG ME Confetti Cuts die…

NotecardBox_cards

The word “notecards” was stamped with (previously released) LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS in alternating ink colors to coordinate with the pattern paper.

Welcome to our first day of sneak peeks, or as we like to call them THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI.  On Friday, November 8th, we will be releasing FIVE new stamp sets, as well as TWO Confetti Cuts (our BRAND NEW line of wafer-thin dies).  I am super excited about this release and just know that you will love all that we have in store for you this week!  Here’s our schedule…

As a reminder, all of our releases will happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month.  We will release new product every other month.  We’ll still be hopping on the 8th, whether there is a release or not.  Just remember, “Eight is Great!”

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 (starting at 9am CST today).  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this red and white striped graphic…

. . . . .

This is a long post. Grab that cuppa joe, sit back, relax and enjoy all the new Reverse Confetti inspiration!

It’s no secret, the holidays are just around the corner.  There are cards, gifties and decorations to be made along with family meals and cookies for friends and neighbors.  It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

Today we are introducing not only one or two, but THREE new stamp sets and our TWO new CONFETTI CUTS (our very own line of exclusive wafer-thin dies) that are just perfect for all of your holiday creations (and more!).

Some of my most favorite things to make, not only during the holidays, but throughout the year are tags.  So, when it came time to design our very first CONFETTI CUTS, I knew that we needed a standout die set that could be used on lots and lots of projects and gifties.  With this in mind, TAG ME, a set of 5 dies was born…

TagMe300

This die set features large and small flag-ended dies.  The larger tag has a debossing detail line and each have a coordinating circle to go around the hole on the top portion of the die.  The flag-ended banner is the perfect place to stamp many of your Reverse Confetti sentiments, including these fun and festive ones from the new set, TINSEL ‘N TRIM which is designed for all your holiday tags and scrapbooking pages, including pocket scrapping (i.e. Project Life) and daily albums (i.e. December Daily)…

In addition to making tags, I also love making little gifties that can be given to friends, family, teachers and hostesses.

For those gifties and more, I created the SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die…

SweetTreatTent300

Are you twisting your neck and wondering why this doesn’t quite look like a tent?  It’s because with this die, you CUT TWO, fold on the bottom scored (debossed) lines and adhere together like so…

TreatTentM&Ms_inside

This die also has a tab at the top.  You have a couple of options for using this tab when you have two of these cut…

1. Fold each tab inward and adhere tabs together.

2. Cut ONE tab off and adhere other tab to the inside top of opposite Sweet Treat Tent die cut.

3. Cut BOTH tabs off and either adhere top of SWEET TREAT TENT die cuts together with adhesive or tie together with ribbon, twine, etc.

The SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die is made to perfectly hold snack size treats, like the M&Ms shown above and other goodies, too!  Here are few more pics of these gifties that I have made for a few friends using TINSEL ‘N TRIM, (the previously released, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS) and the new TAG ME Confetti Cuts…

The holiday fun isn’t quite over for today…

As I have mentioned in several posts before, I love being able to offer maximum versatility in our products.  Our KEY WORDS COLLECTION is a shining example of being able to get the most from your Reverse Confetti stamps.  This collection features one “key word” that can be mixed and matched with other words in the set to create a wide variety of sentiments.  Our holiday themed KEY WORD COLLECTION set is BRING ON THE MERRY

KW_BOTMProductGraphicSheet300

Here is a sampling of how you can mix and match these stamps to create some wonderful holiday sentiments…

MixSheet

And, speaking of versatility, the SWEET TREAT TENT can be used for more than just a treat holder (just wait until you see what the Confetti Crew has done with it)!  Here I created a mini album using BRING ON THE MERRY and this Confetti Cuts die by cutting several pieces out and binding them together…

I created embellished cards to go on the “pages.”  Not all adhered, since I want to wait until I have all the pictures from the holidays to include with them.
