By Jen del Muro

Greetings ‘Fetti Fans and Happy (almost) 2016…

We are completing this year with one last Confetti Camera that is sure to inspire you to ring in 2016 in style!

A little bit about Confetti Camera…

In this weekly segment, one of the Confetti Crew designers will have the camera on both themselves, as a designer, and on their Reverse Confetti creations. For this round each of our designers will be coming up with a SET of something. You’ll see gift sets, card sets, pocket scrapping sets and much more this time around.

A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will follow the same theme until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member (then it’s a new round with new questions/theme). To see previous Confetti Camera post, simply click on “Confetti Camera” under the categories link on our sidebar.

In the spotlight today is Amy Sheffer

Hi ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy here today with the latest installment in the Set ‘Em Up Confetti Camera series. The theme is to create a set of something. With it being New Year’s Eve, I thought a set of New Year’s shaker tags and mini champagne bottles would be fun and appropriate!

RCconfetticamera1215_1-1

The shaker tags were cut with the THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts from a crisp, white card stock, then filled with silver, gold, clear, and white sequins for a glamorous look.

RCconfetticamera1215_1-4

RCconfetticamera1215_1-3

The word “hello” was die-cut with the HELLO Confetti Cuts die out of black card stock. I stamped the year using the new ALPHABETICAL stamp set. The year is white embossed on vellum, then stitched onto the tag frame using gold metallic thread. I curled the loose thread ends for a festive look.

Happy New Year!

CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS: READY TO PARTY

By Jen del Muro
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.”

DSC06304

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.

DSC06282

DSC06280

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…

DSC06278

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.

. . . . .

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.

Hello, and welcome to DAY ONE of sneak peeks, or as we like to say THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!

Last month, we released our 2015 Holiday Collection and this month is a little bit of a continuation of that release, less the emphasis on “holiday.”  These 2 new stamp sets and 4 new Confetti Cuts die sets are ones that you are going to find yourself reaching for during the holiday season and then time and time again.  Of course, we have a new set of QUICK CARD PANELS, and those are definitely filled with lots of Christmas cheer!

. . . . .

Ok, ‘Fetti Fans, you know the drill…

Sit back, grab that cuppa and check out all the Confetti Creativity we have in store for you today with the new release goodies!

First, let’s introduce the new *limited edition* QUICK CARD PANELS

HOLLY JOLLY

QCP_ProductGraphic

. . . . .

QUICK CARD PANELS are limited edition premium heavyweight cardstock panels measuring 3.25″ x 4.5″.  Each package contains 2 of each 8 printed design.  They are designed for A2 card making, but you can easily use them on all of your paper crafting projects!  We will have a new set of QUICK CARD PANELS with each release. Grab them while you can, because once they’re gone, they’re gone!

You’ll see the new limited edition QUICK CARD PANELS used on a variety of projects from the Confetti Crew.  We can’t wait to see how you will use them on your creations!

One thing that you’ll notice with these QUICK CARD PANELS is that they are specifically designed to go with the tags that we are releasing this month.  Of course, they’re still perfect for card panels, too!

. . . . .

Next up on the introductions is a new tag set that I one of the Confetti Crew Design Team members described as “life changing!”  I don’t know how it will change your life, but it’s definitely changing how I package some of my Christmas gifts!

GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG

GiftCardHolderTagCCProductGraphic

This 5 piece Confetti Cuts die set features a large tag, a rectangle panel that cuts and leaves a debossed line on the negative, a gift card insert and 2 decorative banners that match up with the gift card insert.

. . . . .

As you know, it’s all about the details with me.  I created these super fun “hangers” to complement the tags being released this month.  It’s a simple design element that I think goes a long way…

HANG UPS

HangUpsCCProductGraphic

. . . . .

I have a couple of more introductions before I share my projects with you today.

This month, we are releasing 2 new stamp sets that are perfect for using on your holiday projects, but go well beyond these next couple of months.  They are perfect on tags (do you see a theme here?), as well as cards and all of your other paper crafting projects.  Without further adieu…

WITH LOVE

ALPHABETICAL

(seriously, how fun is this font!?!)

AlphabeticalProductGraphic

. . . . .

Ok, now I’m ready to share my projects with you (FINALLY!)…

This first project set features (well, everything above…) the new *limited edition* Holly Jolly QUICK CARD PANELS, GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG, HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die sets, as well as both WITH LOVE and ALPHABETICAL

DSC05989

The “Holly Jolly” QUICK CARD PANEL is cut from the new GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts.

I simply adhered it to a card that had stitched detailing and added the HOLLY Confetti Cuts that we released last month for a simple and fun embellishment…

DSC05993

One more detail shot…

DSC05992

The second part of this gift set is a candy jar that was so easy and inexpensive to put together.  I may just have to keep a few of these on hand for when I need a quick giftie for a friend, hostess or neighbor…

DSC05997

The jar is from a Japanese dollar store that is local to me (Daiso).  I then filled it with peppermints that I purchased in bulk.

The top of the jar has a few different elements adhered to it, making it more than just a dollar store jar.

First, I cut a small scalloped circle from kraft paper from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set.  I ran that through my paper crimper (yes, really, I still have one!). From there, I added a small wreath cut from the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set.   While that was cute, it still needed a little something. I painted a wooden ball/bead white, added a rhinestone to the top (to cover the hole) and then added ribbon and a name tag.

As you can see, the name tag is stamped with letters from the new ALPHABETICAL stamp set and then “embellished” with the scalloped edge HANG UPS Confetti Cuts.  The re-inforcer is also from the HANG UPS Confetti Cuts set…

DSC05995

. . . . .

I’ve mentioned a couple of times that these are necessarily holiday products and I want to show you how I used them on non-holiday projects.

Here are a couple of birthday tags that I did with the GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts die set and WITH LOVE stamp set (stars are from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set)…

DSC05999

Here’s a closer peek at each…

DSC06016

HOW TO CREATE A GIFT CARD POCKET:

  1. Cut 2 tags

  2. From one of the tags, cut the gift card pocket slot (it’s the die that kind of looks like a smiley).

  3. Stamp and embellish as desired

  4. Adhere tag from step 2 to other tag…adhering ONLY the edges

The mini banners are meant to embellish the slot that the gift card slides into.  They match up perfectly to the curve, or you can layer them across, too!

Detail shot of the gift card slot…

DSC06005

As you can see, I used the flower re-inforcer from the new HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die set on the top hole of this tag.  I tied it off with orange ribbon and STRAWBERRY TWINE (love this stuff!!).

The other tag features a slightly more “boy” color scheme.  I layered the banners on this one to go all the way across the tag and added both the hanger and re-inforcer from the HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die set.  This one has MIDNIGHT BLUE TWINE pulled through the HANG UPS loop…

DSC06023

On both of these the word “celebrate” is stamped in orange and then I used different colors on the “happy birthday” sentiment.

Detail shots…

. . . . .

I have one more project to share with you today and then I am going to send you on your way to see all of the creations that the Confetti Crew and our ‘Fetti Friends have put together.

I’m switching back into holiday mode for this one…a very sweet and simple ornament created from clay and personalized with the ALPHABETICAL stamp set.

DSC06031

Of course, I had the idea to do this yesterday afternoon…eek.  I had to use my oven to expedite the drying time of the “air dry” clay.  I set it to 175* and checked on it every 20 minutes or so and it was done within a couple of hours (YAY!).

Here are the supplies used for this project (stamp set not shown)…

20151104

The clay was purchased at Michaels and the cookie cutter is just one from my stash.  I used a plastic straw to cut the ribbon hole.  The rolling pin was used to flatten the clay out (on top of wax paper).

Here I am cutting the clay after it was rolled out…

20151104_12_resized

I then “punched” the ribbon hole out with the plastic straw and stamped the words “Christmas 2015” using the ALPHABETICAL stamp set.

Sorry for the poor lighting on the pic below (I’m still getting used to the sun setting an hour earlier!).

Here is a  shot that shows a bit of the depth of the lettering, as well as the ribbon and button embellishment (tied off with NATURAL TWINE)…

DSC06050

This clay can be painted, etc. once it is dry.  I wanted a more “rustic” feel to this particular ornament, but I think that I will have my kids do some and then have them paint them.
