Howdy, Friends!

Have you voted for your ‘Fetti Fave yet?  If not, take a peek at yesterday’s post and vote for your fave!

As for today, it’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  I’ve been itchin’ to stamp with PEACOCK PRETTIES again and finally got a chance to ink it up again.  I was inspired by this color palette…

I just adore aqua and yellow together! In combination with black and white to set those colors off, I came up with this card…

Detail shot…

I absolutely LOVE using the geometric “feather eye” with VersaMark ink to create tone on tone pattern paper that coordinates with the rest of the stamps in this set.  And, while I didn’t use it here, did you know that the other geometric pattern will “fit” with this one shown? So many design options with this set!

I’ve had lots of inquiries regarding when the next release is…

Mark your calendars for JULY 8th!

For now, we will be releasing new product on the 8th of EVERY OTHER MONTH.  On non-release months, the Confetti Crew will be blog hopping on the 8th, so there is always something to look forward to.  Just remember, “Eight is Great!”

It’s Friday…hip hip hooray!  All week I’ve been off on my days, so this Friday seems to have been a long time coming.  It’s been a good start to summer over here… I spent time with friends, old and new; got a little bit of sunshine by the pool and worked on projects for the JULY 8th REVERSE CONFETTI RELEASE. All in all, I can say it was a good week.  Now, if all those pesky piles of laundry would fold themselves!  I swear I could use a minion…or three!  Can anyone else relate?

Being that it is Friday, time is running out for you to get your entry in to be a ‘Fetti Find!  Weekly Finds will be announced Monday and VOTING FOR THE ‘FETTI FAVE will also begin.  The ‘Fetti Fave will receive the ENTIRE NEXT RELEASE and be invited to join the Confetti Crew for sneak peeks and the new release hop.  Get your Reverse Confetti creation from this week uploaded HERE today!

. . . . .

Time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we shine the spotlight on Confetti Crew creations from this past week…

Laurie made my jaw drop with this fresh, fun and bold card using DREAM IN COLOR (now back in stock).

Laurie

Heather’s card using HAPPY HARBOR and DREAM IN COLOR used her daughter’s personality as inspiration (love that!)…

Heather

Val, too, used HAPPY HARBOR for a completely different look.  I simply adore this card.

Susan’s PEACOCK PRETTIES card is oh-so-pretty…

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on June 18, 2013

What an amazing week this is already…and it’s only Tuesday!  What’s been happening here at Reverse Confetti…

1. DREAM IN COLOR is back in stock and we are packing and shipping orders.

2. Susan and I met for a working dinner (and oh-so-refreshing ice cold adult beverage) last night and our cup overfloweth with ideas!  We have concepts on paper through the first release of 2014.  Now that’s being productive!

3. Prep work for our next release is well underway! Stay tuned for details about the July 8 release…you won’t want to miss it (promise!).

4. We’re keeping our eye out for the next ‘Fetti Find!  Have you uploaded your card to the weekly link list post on Monday?

. . . . .

Being that it is Tuesday, it’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY.  I’m pretty happy about DREAM IN COLOR being back in stock and just had to get it inky once again.  In the spirit of summer and the upcoming Fourth of July holiday…and the fact that I have Katy Perry’s “Firework” song in my head from watching Madagascar 3 with my kiddos…

DreamInColorFireworks

I stamped the sentiment in white pigment ink on top of black cardstock.  I chose black cardstock because fireworks are seen at night and the colors pop of the panel.  These fireworks were cut from my Silhouette.  Each one is layered with the darker tone on bottom and the lighter tone on top to give it added dimension.  And, since you can’t have fireworks without a little sparkle, I added silver sequins to represent the tail/trail and coordinating rhinestones in the center of the stars.

I’ll leave you with part of the inspiration…

TIME FOR A (SFYTT) CARD TUESDAY + WINNER ANNOUNCED…

By admin
on June 11, 2013

Howdy, friends!

It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY, but before we get to that I get to announce the winner of the $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificate from this weekend’s blog hop.  Thanks to all that hopped along with us!

Winner

Congratulations, Samantha.  Please email me.

. . . . .

As you know, SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY (SFYTT) is back!  In December, after several years of hosting SFYTT on my iheart2stamp blog, I retired it.  As the plans for Reverse Confetti  started to fall into place earlier in this year, I realized that I really wanted it to be part of what I do here, too…and I’m glad I did!  On June 1st, SFYTT’s inaugural sketch as part of Reverse Confetti went live and I just LOVE what y’all are doing with it!  It’s a pretty basic sketch and lends itself to just about any style.

RC_SFYTT1

I got out of my comfort zone just a little on this card, by using a black base.  I love how it makes the white and colors POP…

ILY_SFYTT

As you can see, I took a few creative liberties with the sketch on this card, and I invite you to do the same with your creations.

Detail shot…

ILY_SFYTT_detail

For this card, I used the base sentiment from the set, I LIKE YOU.  I had originally thought to add a die cut image in the center of the picture frame and tie in the “&…” sentiment, but decided to keep it sweet, simple and a bit scrappy.  The stamped heart and diagonal stripes on the bright pink panel are also part of this set.

‘FETTI FINDS

on June 10, 2013

Hello and Happy Monday, sweet friends!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  I think I need another weekend to recover from this past weekend!  Saturday was my daughter’s party (see Saturday’s blog hop post for all the crafty details). Here’s the topper atop an actual cupcake as I promised…

CupcakesWTopper

Sunday was a little of this and a little of that.  We (meaning mostly Tony) started a backyard landscape project.  Looks like a trip to Home Depot for a few things is in order this week.  I wonder how the kids will feel about that.  A little fro-yo bribery might be in order!

. . . . .

Being that it is Monday, it’s time to announce the new ‘Fetti Finds (YAY!).  As always, there were so many great entries!  Thank you all for playing and I look forward to seeing your Reverse Confetti creations each week!

This week’s ‘Fetti Finds are…

Lisa F. did an awesome job of incorporating the image and sentiment from HAPPY HARBOR into her darling scrapbook page.

It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY here on the Reverse Confetti blog.  HAPPY HARBOR has been on my desk and I can’t seem to put it away!  Here, I used it in combination with a (Silhouette) die cut tag, where I used the negative of an off-set anchor…

HappyHarborTFCT

I stamped the whale image multiple times to create my own patterned paper and then added the sentiment as an embellishment to the tag (along with some sequins for bling!) …

HappyHarborTFCT_detail

I love this color combination, especially for the nautical theme!  It gives it a little bit of a hip and girly feel to it.

It’s baaaaack!

SFYTT_postgraphic

Yep, SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY (SFYTT) is back…but a little different, in a good way, of course!  Same awesome sketches, just a slightly different format.

For starters, it’s here on the Reverse Confetti blog, not at my “old” blog (iheart2stamp.com).

Second, Reverse Confetti is hosting and sponsoring the sketch.  And, because we’re the sponsor we get to give away REVERSE CONFETTI stamps!!  More on that in a minute, along with all the other details you will want to know.

For now, let’s get this party started!  Here’s the very first SFYTT here at Reverse Confetti…

RC_SFYTT1

Here’s my sample using stamps from both HAPPY HARBOR and I LIKE YOU

SFYTT1-1

I created my own pattern paper focal panel by repeatedly stamping the anchor from HAPPY HARBOR and the hearts from I LIKE YOU.  Detail shots…
