COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: I LIKE YOU SNEAK PEEK

By admin
on May 07, 2013

Hello and welcome to our third and final day of sneak peeks!

ReleaseScheduleGraphic

As you can see, product goes live TONIGHT in the Reverse Confetti store!  I’m just *a little* excited, and I hope you are, too!  We still have one more set to sneak peek and I think that you might just “LIKE” it! *wink*

. . . . .

Have you ever seen something and said, “I need a stamp that says that?” Well, that’s kinda what happened here.  Sometime last year I came across this picture on Pinterest and thought that very same thing.  (I wonder if a then 2 year old had any influence on my interpretation of whose nap this phrase references?!)

When I sat down to design the stamps I came back to this sentiment that had inspired me so.  While it turns out that I really do like naps (especially those taken by a now 3 year old), I like a lot of other things, too (and better).  Those things became what I used to build this new set, I LIKE YOU

ILikeYou_ProductGraphic3

      ILikeYou_Combos

There are MANY, MANY combinations that are possible with this set (not all are shown) and you can even create fill-in-the-blanks with the dotted or solid lines (or create patterns with them, too).  Because I like versatility, the word “and” can also be represented by the “&” and “‘n.”  The words “make” “makes” “everything” and “better”  are also included so that twice as many sentiments can be created using the words in this set.

On this card, I cut each of the words in the sentiment to create a playful tag focal panel, that is also stamped with the dotted lines in red and aqua.

The “&” is used to represent “and” on this project since I wanted to be able to use it as an embellishment, as well.

Chocolate does make everything better, doesn’t it?

The treat inside…

This treat wrap came together so quickly and easily and it makes the perfect giftie for a teacher, neighbor, co-worker or friend.

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: PEACOCK PRETTIES & DREAM IN COLOR SNEAK PEEKS

Happy Monday “Fetti Fans (<–we’ll have a blog button for that soon)!  What better way to kick off the week with not just one, but TWO set reveals and TONS of inspiration.   Just as a reminder, here is the play by play for this month’s release…

ReleaseScheduleGraphic

As I noted yesterday, all of our releases will happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month.  We will release new product every other month.  We’ll still be hopping on the 8th, whether there is a release or not.  Just remember, “Eight is Great!”

The first of our two reveals today is a fun, fancy and fresh set based around the peacock trend that is growing in popularity.  We’re starting to see it within the paper crafting industry now, and I just love the possibilities that come with our new set, PEACOCK PRETTIES

PeacockPretties_ProductGraphic3

Here’s a peek into some of the inspiration that has surrounded me for the past few months…

This card uses both of the sets that are being introduced today, as they compliment each other well…

DreamInColor_PP_card

Detail of the feather, graphics & sentiment…

DreamInColor_detail5

The multi-colored look of the  feather was achieved by dabbing my Color Box pigment ink cat eyes on the stamp.

DreamInColor_detail3

The word COLOR was colored and blended with Copic markers.

DreamInColor_detail4

The sentiment used on this card was created with the DREAM IN COLOR set, which is part of our Key Words Collection.  This set, as well as the others that will follow in the Key Words Collection, are center around a “key word” (or words) that you are able to mix and match the other stamps in the set with to create a variety of sentiments.

DreamInColor

DreamInColor_combos

As you can see, there are multiple sentiments that can be created and we have also included a couple of other sentiments focused around the same theme.

Crayons1

Using the chalkboard technique, I created the main focal panel…

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: HAPPY HARBOR SNEAK PEEK

 ReleaseScheduleGraphic

Welcome to day one of sneak peeks!  Months ago it seemed like this day was so far away and now it’s finally here!  While it seems like forever and a day ago that I was working with our illustrator on these sets, I can say that it was worth the wait.  The warm reception via comments, Facebook posts, email and even phone calls has been amazing.  THANK YOU!

I’ve created a graphic (above) to let you know how releases will work here at REVERSE CONFETTI. Our releases will always be on the 8th of the month.  Instead of monthly releases, we will have releases EVERY OTHER MONTH.  As the graphic states, sneak peek days will be on the 5th, 6th and 7th with a wrap up hop on the 8th.  (We’ll actually be hopping on the 8th of every month, but more on that later).  And, what’s a release without a prize?  Be sure to comment on each sneak post for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the REVERSE CONFETTI store.

. . . . .

It’s no surprise that the nautical theme is in full swing in the paper crafting industry, as well as just about everywhere you look…anchors, lighthouses and whales, oh my!

I couldn’t resist creating a nautical themed set that was full of fun and whimsy.
So, without further adieu, let me introduce to you the first of four sets being released on May 8th…

A couple of projects made with the HAPPY HARBOR set…

I had the idea for this next project well before the stamps were even in my hands.  I love how they turned out!  The tags and waves were cut with my Silhouette and then I stamped the whale, rope, compass and sentiment to create a happy scene.  These tags ‘n bags will be finding their way into my kiddos’ teacher’s hands for Teacher Appreciate week, and I’m sure I’ll be using this idea again for gifties and favors.
