Hello and TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans!

I am definitely looking forward to this weekend!  The weather is supposed to be beautiful and I am excited to spend some quality time outside with the littles and my hubby.  I think I’ve convinced them to help me wash/clean out my car.  We’ll see if they are anywhere to be found when it comes time for that, though!

It’s a super special weekend at Reverse Confetti, too!  Sunday is our (monthly) blog hop and I promise you do not want to miss it!

WEEK IN REVERSE

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Friday (and Super Bowl weekend).

Do you have fun plans for the game?  I have to admit, we’re going to be duds and just hang out at home.  I’m more interested in the commercials than the teams playing this year.  I guess that’s just about every year though, but sometimes cheering occurs in between the commercials, too.  My (8 year old) daughter is excited to see Katy Perry perform at half-time.  I’m crossing my fingers for no wardrobe malfunctions, etc!

. . . . .

It’s Friday, so you know what that means…

CONFETTI CAMERA

on January 29, 2015

Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Thursday!

My, oh my, this week is flying by.  I’ve spent a lot of time in the office this week doing the normal stuff…packing orders, fielding emails, putting together product graphics and info for upcoming releases (so much good stuff coming up!) and, to my delight, CREATING!  It’s nice to get a little ahead so that I have time to do that!  I’ll be sharing my projects that I have been working on over the next couple of weeks.  Today, it’s time for…

ConfettiCameraRCblog

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, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from cards completed inside and out from each of our designers. 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.

. . . . .

On camera today is AMY SHEFFER.  She’s wildly talented and I am happy to call her friend, as well!

Happy Thursday, ‘Fetti fans, it’s Amy here today, with a sweet floral and hearts card featuring some of the new January release goodies. I’m loving our Inside & Out theme! I imagine it’s kind of a let-down for a recipient to open a beautifully hand-crafted card, only to find a plain ol’ card base inside! And yet, I don’t decorate the insides nearly often enough. I’m hoping today’s card is the beginning of a new habit!

RCloveblooms_CC012915_detail1

I absolutely adore the hand-written look of the sentiments in LOVE BLOOMS — so charming! I stamped my sentiment onto a TAG ME Confetti Cuts die-cut, then added lots of different hearts (die cut with the HEART TO HEART and PUPPY LOVE Confetti Cuts sets) as well as an ARROW Confetti Cuts die-cut. The large rounded rectangle from DOCUMENTED is a great background layer for TAG ME tags.

RCloveblooms_CC012915_detail2

RCloveblooms_CC012915_detail3

For the inside, I carried over the basic elements and theme of the outside: colors, hearts, and love. The hearts are stamped with images from HEART TO HEART and die-cut with the coordinating HEART TO HEART Confetti Cuts. The word “LOVE” is also from the HEART TO HEART stamp set. I arranged everything along the bottom, leaving plenty of room for a written message.

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on January 27, 2015

Hello and Happy Tuesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Well, we survived Monday so it’s time for TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

I had a lot of fun creating the card that I am sharing today.  Confetti Crew member and friend, Stacey Schafer, introduced me to the Ranger watercolor paper.  I love using this stuff in conjunction with Reverse Confetti goodies to create fun cards (and such)!

crushin

For this card I created a pink ombre watercolor background and then cut it out with the PRETTY PANELS: BIG CHEVRON from our latest release.  I backed it with the rounded rectangle from CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts (made to go together).

On top of the ombre BIG CHEVRON panel, I layered a BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts die cut (cut from gray stripe paper), an Arrow Confetti Cuts die cut and a sparkly gold heart cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

crushin1

The patterned paper panels underneath are cut from the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set from our January release (LOVE this die set!) and stamped with the CRUSHIN’ namesake sentiment.  As a finishing touch, I added a bit of bling with some gold sequins randomly placed.  It’s amazing how long it takes to “randomly” place these lil’ things!

crushin3

This wasn’t the only fun that I had playing with watercolors!  If you follow Reverse Confetti on Instagram, last week you caught a little peek of the base of the card that I’ll be showing tomorrow. (Yea, the one that looked like I was bleeding).  It turned out to be a super cute card (in my humble opinion)!  See you tomorrow with the finished product!

NOVEMBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By admin
on November 01, 2014

Happy November ‘Fetti Friends!

I just have to say that I can’t believe that it’s November already and that means that holiday season is about to be in full gear…yay (and yikes!).  We had a great time last night for Halloween and trick-or-treating!  We just hung around around block until an hour into it my 4 year old said, “I think I have enough candy now.  Let’s go home.”  Yes, really!  And then, to top it off, his sister agreed.  Baffled we took them home, watched a short movie and put them to bed. Of course, when Halloween has fallen on a school night it’s been torture to take them back home.  I hope y’all had a fun and safe celebration.  Here’s a pic from last time (applause for not forgetting the camera)…

Well, I said it already…it’s November.  That means it’s time for a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Merry Halloween Eve…or as I’ve seen it called Elsaween.  Just how many Elsa costumes will we be seeing tomorrow?  I’m glad that my kids did not go the Frozen  route (I’m Frozened out!) and will be dressing up as a pirate and a vampire.  Yes, my 4 year old is going to be a vampire…”with bloooood,” as he says.  Needless to say, it should be interesting.  Let’s see if I can remember to take pictures!

. . . . .

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, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from an ANYTHING BUT A CARD project from each of our designers. A couple of things to note:

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

Today on Confetti Camera we have the very kindhearted and over the top talented, AMY SHEFFER

AmySIntroPic

. . . . .

Hi everyone, Amy here today for this week’s Confetti Camera installment. Today, I’ve created a gift for a very dear friend who is undergoing chemo treatments for breast cancer. She is nearing the end of her eighteen treatments, and I thought I’d give her a way to count down the very last of these treatments and get to the finish line.

 The outer packaging is a matchbook-style wrap, with the bound side held together with a binder clip.

chemocountdown1

For the front label, I used the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, topped with a circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts. The sentiment is made up of the word “count” from COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, plus the word “chemo” and “down,” which were done by combining individual letters in the same font from a whole bunch of different sets. I added in some die-cuts for extra design elements: DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts, PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts , and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts.

chemocountdown3

 On the inside are three tiny paper gift sacks, one for each chemo treatment that’s left. The outsides of the each bag are numbered, and the inside has a motivational tag (plus a Ghirardelli chocolate square).

chemocountdown2

The #3 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: DIAGONAL STRIPE Confetti Cuts , ARROW Confetti Cuts and LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts. The tag inside has a motivational sentiment from ALL ABOUT YOU.

 The #2 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: CHEVRON Confetti Cuts and TAG ME Confetti Cuts. The sentiment on the inside tag was cut on my Silhouette.

 The #1 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts , OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts, and TAG ME Confetti Cuts. The tag inside uses the PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts again, as well as a sentiment from WINNING and a star accent from OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts.

One last view, from the side:

chemocountdown4

This same idea could easily be repurposed for any type of countdown, or simply used as a mini-album for photos, a collection of favorite quotes, funny kid sayings, even a collection of gift cards for a teacher or coach.

Hello and Happy Thursday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Whew…it’s the last day of school here and we are set for summer vacation!  I have the calendar made, the crafty kids and science projects planned, VBS booked and the school stuff printed (and laminated).  Summer…bring it!

Of course, I have some fun Reverse Confetti stuff planned, too!

Well, it’s Thursday and time for another fabulous installment of 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, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from a fun tip or technique from each of our designers. A couple of things to note:

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

3) For this round we are focusing on how Reverse Confetti stamp sets are compatible with each other and each of the Confetti Crew members is picking two of their favorites to pair together on their project.

Today on Confetti Camera, the spotlight is on the fun and talented SAVANNAH O’GWYNN

Howdy, Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

TGIF!  I am ready for the weekend!  Are you?  (stupid question, huh?)

We have our first house guest in our new house and I am sure that we will be doing a little exploring in Houston this weekend.  Hopefully, I will have fun pics and such to share next week.  I may just duck into the studio to create a thing or two, as well. (crossing fingers)

Well, being that it is Friday, it is time for the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a look back on what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.  Many of them posted for the new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY.  You can see that post HERE, as well as all the info on how you can enter to win.

. . . . .

Amy is just too clever!  She used the coffee oval from BE A BARISTA to create this awesome pattern.  She paired it will a simple sentiment from our everyday sentiment set, LOTS TO SAY, to create a perfectly unique any time card…

3.27.14

Lisa created this fun card for a “put a bird on it” using CARTON CUTIES, CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again…Heather never fail to WOW with our PEACOCK PRETTIES set!  I love the pattern that she created and the sweet sentiment from ALL ABOUT YOU compliments it perfectly.

Sarah is featured on this week’s episode of Iron Craft.  I love her card using BE A BARISTA and the ARROW Confetti Cuts!

. . . . .

Have a great weekend, and as always…

Howdy and TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans!

For those following our relocation…more of the same happening over here in the del Muro household…hurry up and wait.  Everyone needs a decision about this or that here and now, but on the flipside we are just sitting and waiting and trying to get ready to go.  I still have ants in my pants about not being able to pack up anything so I’m just sorting a few things and getting ready of the release…NEXT SATURDAY!  Getting inky has been able to take my mind off of the move a little…thank goodness!  More updates to come as the move date approaches (mid-March).  Until then, the focus is here…

Before we get to the WEEK IN REVERSE portion of this post, we need to get a drumroll going for this month’s COLOR CHALLENGE WINNER…

winner_color

Here’s Cathy’s card using the February colors: cranberry, light blue and gray along with the HAPPY HARBOR stamp set and TAG ME Confetti Cuts…

Cathy, please email info@reverseconfetti.com for your prize.

Thank you to everyone that played along.  The submissions were absolutely INCREDIBLE…as always.  It makes my heart swell to see all your Reverse Confetti creations!

It’s Friday and time for WEEK IN REVERSE, where we take a look back at what the most awesome design team, The Confetti Crew, has been up to this week.

Susan broke out her Copics and played with FREIDA FOX this week!  Isn’t she darling?  And, if you are wondering…we will soon be introducing you to a friend of hers!

I like card making, but I LOVE seeing Reverse Confetti stamps and Confetti Cuts dies being used in a variety of paper crafting project, like Leigh’s beautiful scrapbook page featuring SWEET THING and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.  You can also see Leigh on this week’s Confetti Camera post (Thursday, 2/27).

Another great ABC (anything but a card) project from Amber using SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, SWEET THING and WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS.

Sarah says she’s on a tag making kick…I think I’ve been on one of those for the last few years! It’s easy with the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set (and ARROW Confetti Cuts, too)!  Here she paired it with CRUSHIN’ and WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS for a very sweet giftie…

Pink+Orange+INNER ROCK STAR= awesome cards from Stacey and Heather!

Heather created part of her background with WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, too.

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3748/12688465995_b8b63605d4_b.jpg

As proven above, great minds think alike.  I love all the positive energy coming from the PAPER CRANE set!  Lisa, Susan and Amy all inked it up this week for wonderfully creative and original designs…

Susan’s card also uses WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS and the TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

Amy also added the TAG ME Confetti Cuts to her creation.

Amber also used PAPER CRANE this week.  Her creation features on of the other sentiments and a very cool layout!

Amy K.’s card is a cool collection of a variety of Reverse Confetti products including the Christmas(!!) set, BRING ON THE MERRY, INNER ROCK STAR and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

2.27.14

Amy S.’ GO TOGETHER card with those darling die cuts to match the oh-so-perfect sentiment makes me smile!

Val shares more than moolah on her blog.  You can check out her Pocket Tag tutorial using  HERE.  Such a fun card (and tag!) and she always WOWS me with how she combines her RC products.  On this card she used CRUSHIN’, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS, SWEET THING and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

See you tomorrow with a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!
