QUIRKY CUTIES HOP

By admin
on July 24, 2014

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

Instead of Confetti Camera, today we are having a super fun hop with super fun prizes!

If you are looking for the start of the hop, you are in the right place!  There’s a full list of hoppers later in this post in case of any breaks.

Today’s hop is all about our QUIRKY CUTIES line of stamps here at Reverse Confetti.

Originally, “Quirky Cuties” was going to be a single set.  However, I am a little indecisive and I just *love* how fun these cuties are, so I developed them into an entire line.  So far, we have four cuties…with more coming with each release.

Today, I am sharing a card I made with our very first cutie, FREIDA FOX.

FreidaProductSheet200

QCHOPCard

Frieda is ton of fun to color, paper piece or just leave as line art!  It’s just one of the reasons that I adore this image (ok, well, I adore all of them).

I used my Copics to color her fur, flower and shoes and then I paper pieced her dress, scarf and heart.  Here is she is on circle panels cut from the new CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts.  I went with white on white for those panels so that Freida would stand out more.

Detail pic of Freida Fox and the heart topped with Diamond Glaze…

QCHOPCard2

To embellish the card, I cut out the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set and topped it with a button tied off with green linen thread.  I also added a trio of colorful enamel dots to mimic the pattern paper.

Confetti Camera

By admin
on April 10, 2014

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Thursday and time for 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.

2) Each designer will answer the same set of questions/show a tip 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.

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 the spotlight is on the one and only, Stacey Schafer

StaceyIntroPic

Stacey here and I’m thrilled to be and share this super fun birthday card/sticky note holder!  Who says that BEBE BUNNY has to be colored?!  I adore this sweet bunny and love to see her framed up with the LOVE NOTE like this, all subtle and sweet!

Here’s a closeup of Miss Bebe Bunny!  The two stamp sets that I used for my project today are BEBE BUNNY and ALL ABOUT YOU…a perfect pair!

bebe note holder

At CHA in Janaury, one of the make -n- takes was a really cute (and simple) sticky-note holder!  I knew I wanted to try this at home using some of my favorite Reverse Confetti stamps and dies!

Here’s how!

First, score a 4 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock at 5 1/2 and again at 2 3/4.

score

Then, fold the 5 1/2 score line down (like you would for your tent-style card), then fold the 2 3/4 score line up the opposite way.  Attach some strong adhesive and attach another piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card stock over the top.fold and adhere

Then, your sticky-note holder is ready for decorating!

The Confetti Cuts: TAG ME, CLASS ACT, and LOVE NOTE were all layered up together to create a fabulous frame and focal point for BEBE BUNNY and some birthday sentiments from ALL ABOUT YOU.

After adding some yummy paper and embellishments including ribbon, button, twine, and epoxy hearts….and this sweet gift is ready for giving!

I hope you are inspired to create something new today!

April Creative Hop

By admin
on April 08, 2014

Hello and Happy Spring, ‘Fetti Fans!

As you know we release on the 8th of every other month, but we still hop on the 8th of every month.  Being that today is the 8th, we have a fun and inspiration filled hop…and, of course, there is a chance to win up for grabs!

So, grab that cuppa joe, sit back and click on through this amazing hop.  Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Comments are open until this Thursday at noon and the winner will be announced on the Week in Reverse post on Friday.  Happy hopping and good luck!

In case of a break in the hop or if you miss a hopper, there is a full list of participants at the end of this post.

. . . . .

The project that I am sharing today is created from our SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die.  If you are not familiar with this die, you cut 2 and adhere them together to create a “tent” that can hold a variety of goodies (perfectly sized for snack size M&M’s and like treats).  For this SWEET TREAT TENT project, I used pattern paper and then I embellished it with the BEBE BUNNY image and sentiment.  As you can see here, I stamped her with her glasses on.  The glasses are a separate stamp and she can be created with or without them…

HoppyBirthday

This SWEET TREAT TENT is “topped” with the banner die from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set, along with some grosgrain ribbon, button and linen thread.

Below BEBE BUNNY is a large scallop border cut from our DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts…

I don’t like taking a whole lot of time on the inside of cards, but it’s always nice to dress them up a little with some die cuts and a simple sentiment (shown here stamped on the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set-which is also used on the front of the card).

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.

. . . . .

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