WEEK IN REVERSE

on May 31, 2013

TGIF blogland and ‘Fetti Fans!  It’s time once again for the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has done this week.

Before I get to all of their craftiness, I want to remind you that there is still a little bit of time to enter our ‘Fetti Finds for a chance to win the ENTIRE NEXT RELEASE!  You can find all the details HERE on Monday’s post.  Keep in mind that we’ll be posting a new ‘Fetti Find post each week (on Monday) in case you miss this one.

Amber, Amy and Val got inky with I LIKE YOU, but in totally different ways.  Amber played with lots of layers, colors and sentiments from the set…

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on May 28, 2013

Hello ‘Fetti Fans! For those of you that had a long weekend, I hope you enjoyed the extra time that could be spent and cherished  with family and friends.  Here in the del Muro household, we definitely had a great relaxing weekend.  Part of the weekend was spent prepping for my daughter’s upcoming birthday party.  I always say that I am not a theme person, but the last few years I have really gotten into preparing my kid’s parties.  I don’t do anything too crazy, but I definitely try to put a personal touch on it.  This year’s “theme” is a splash party.  I’ve been working a little here and there all weekend with the HAPPY HARBOR set making cupcake toppers and then some. I can’t wait to show you the finished product!  Sorry for the tease, but it’s just not quite ready yet!

What is ready is my card for TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY using PEACOCK PRETTIES

BlkPP

I have really been wanting to do a few things with this set and stamping the feathers in just plain ol’ black is one of them.  I’ve been drawn to stamping them in color because peacocks are so beautiful and colorful, but stamping them in black and making the rest of the card in color makes them stand out a little more.  The feather in this set is substantial enough to be a large focal image. But, by stamping and cutting two, I basically made them into embellishments for the feather eye and sentiment panel.

Detail shot…

BlkPP_detail

I had to reach for the gold sequins to play off the rest of the color palette.  The aqua sequins are adorned with charcoal sequins to give a little extra, yet understated bling.

Greetings ‘Fetti Friends and Fans!

I’d first like to take a moment to say that our hearts go out to all of those affected by the tornadoes in Texas last week and in Oklahoma yesterday. I grabbed this sign on Facebook yesterday and wanted to share it here…

OK

. . . . .

It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY, where I get to share a bit of inspiration using REVERSE CONFETTI stamps.  This week, I’m getting inky with the HAPPY HARBOR set.  This first card has lots of layers and elements…

It’s hard to play favorites, but I think that the large anchor and small anchor border might be my favorite images in this set…of course, that will probably change next time I play with this set!

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on May 14, 2013

Well, we’re starting to get into the groove of things here at REVERSE CONFETTI. I hope you like what you’ve seen so far…as there’s lots more up ahead!

Yesterday, you saw that we will post our ‘Fetti Finds, along with a new link list for that week every Monday.  If you missed yesterday’s post, be sure to check it out so you can find out how you can get Reverse Confetti stamps before they are released!

On Tuesdays, you will find more inspiration using Reverse Confetti stamps on our Time For a Card Tuesday posts.  Of course there will be cards shared, but I may choose to do a tag or other project featuring our stamps.  I think I may be getting talked into doing it in video form, too.  While that won’t be immediate, be sure to stay tuned!

. . . . .

This week’s Time For A Card Tuesday features our just released set, PEACOCK PRETTIES.  My go-to colors for this set have been the traditional color scheme of peacock feathers…blues, greens and purples.  I wanted to break that mold and mix it up a little with some pink and oranges.  I stuck with the aqua, because it compliments the other colors nicely…and it was just sitting on my desk begging to be used.

PinkPeacock

The peacock feathers were stamped in bright pink on a white panel so they would POP, even with the sentiment on top of it.  The feather “eye” and “Live.Laugh.Love” sentiment were both stamped repeatedly in VersaMark watermark ink to give a subtle appearance that adds to the overall design of the card.

I love this sentiment, as it applies to every creative soul that I know and it’s such a great motivational quote…perfect for those graduates!  Truth be told, I did not originally have it stamped in black on aqua paper.  In fact, I tried a few different color combinations, but I love the way that the black ink makes the smallest panel on the card stand out, and the aqua ties into the other aqua panel…

PinkPeacock_detail

For finishing touches, I rounded the corners of the card and added some coordinating enamel dots.

CLEAN AND SIMPLE WITH PEACOCK PRETTIES

By admin
on May 10, 2013

WOW!  What a week! Thank you all for the wonderfully warm reception. Many of you have stamps on the way to you already and I see that a few of you have them already!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with using REVERSE CONFETTI stamps!  Speaking of seeing what you make, we are in the process of getting a gallery set up for you to upload your Reverse Confetti creations. For now, please link them on our Facebook Page.

. . . . .

Today, I am sharing a card using the *just released* set, PEACOCK PRETTIES.  It’s actually the very first card that I made using REVERSE CONFETTI stamps.  I had the sketch and colors for this card in my head long before I even had the stamps in my hand.  While the card does have a few layers, I still consider the overall design clean and simple.

PeacockPretties_HelloFriend

The rectangular green and purple panels have been stamped in Versamark repeatedly with the “feather eye” graphic.  Although I have a (strong) admiration for pattern paper, I love when I can make my own and it’s even better when it pulls the whole theme/look of a project together.

The peacock feather on the main focal panel is embossed with gold tinsel embossing powder.  It is so shimmery!

PeacockPretties_HelloFriend_detail

The “hello friend” sentiment is one of the sentiments included in this set.  I always like to have friend/just because cards on hand so I can reach for them as needed.  While this one might not go anywhere since it’s my very first Reverse Confetti card, I know that several more like it will be made for my stash.

For the crafter/glitter girl in all of us, here’s a card using the I LIKE YOU set…

Glitter

I had a lot of fun creating this card, although I am pretty sure that I still have glitter my eye from it!  While the glitter was spark-a-lay enough on it’s own, I decided to kick it up a notch and make it even more fun with sequins and rhinestones.

To create the glittered panel, I used circle sticky dots in various sizes on a single white cardstock panel and then sprinkled yellow, orange and pink NEON glitter (a purchase I completely blame on Susan Opel) over the dots.  Then I cut the panel in half and flipped one so that the colors were opposite.  The sentiment panel covers up the seam.
