Before I get to all the wonderful inspiration that the Confetti Crew came up with using this sketch, let’s go over the details…

There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.

The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 29th. The SFYTT button is  posted on the sidebar.  Click on it to be taken to the current SFYTT post and link list.

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s been an amazing week here at the Reverse Confetti offices and I hope it has been for you, too!  We’re kicking off the weekend with the new Minion movie and hopefully getting some time by the pool, too…especially since our last couple of poolside attempts have gone up in flames.   I’m getting to that point that I am looking forward to the new school year starting…anyone else with me on this one?

. . . . .

It’s been a few Fridays since our last WEEK IN REVERSE, but we are back with it today.  Check out what the (amazing!) Confetti Crew has been up to this week…

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By Jen del Muro
on July 15, 2015

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Hump Day!

This week is zooming on by and we have a great WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS here for you today!

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS?

It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between. Today, Confetti Crew member, Sarah Gough, shows you how she uses the new YOU ARE A STAR stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts, as well as several of her other faves.  You are going to love the video she has come up with for you…and you may learn a trick or two!

. . . . .

SarahIntroPic

I don’t think it’s a secret that I love Confetti Cuts, and the new You Are a star Confetti Cuts and stamp set are so much fun! I use the dies in a number of ways on this card, and show you a couple of pieces that didn’t make the finished card but are ways to stretch your dies even further! And if you don’t know how very simple it is to cut out your stamped images with Confetti Cuts – I’m going to show you that too!

Photos of her project…

My hop project today features the new YOU ARE A STAR stamp set along with the coordinating YOU ARE A STAR Confetti Cuts die set…

Star1

I stamped the “Be Amazing” star in a coral ink on white cardstock and cut it out with the YOU ARE A STAR Confetti Cuts.  I then used the die set to cut more stars from glitter paper and patterned paper.

The paint splatters are from the previously released COLOR ME HAPPY stamp set, which was conveniently on the top of my stamp pile.

My finishing touches on this card are the clear sequins and the thread wrapped around the main star…I love what that brought to this card!

CONFETTI CAMERA

By Jen del Muro
on July 02, 2015

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

Happy Thursday and welcome to the latest CONFETTI CAMERA!

ConfettiCameraRCblog

A little bit about 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 throwback projects from each of our designers.  I have been stamping for a long time and I have seen things come and go and then come around.  A primary example of this is shaker cards.  We’re taking a look back to those “way back when” projects and breathing new life into them.

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.

. . . . .

Up on CONFETTI CAMERA today is the so very sweet (and super commenter), AMY TSURUTA…

AMYTIntro

I’ve had this great big jar of UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) for a while and thought I’d do a flashback to the Cracked Glass Technique!

I used the thanks stamp from Circle Sentiments.  I stamped and used the coordinating Scalloped Circle Confetti Cuts.  With the die cut sentiment flat on a piece of scrap paper, I pounced my embossing pad on it.   I loaded up the circle with UTEE while it was in my embossing tray.  I heat set and while it was still hot, I loaded up the circle again with UTEE {I did it a total of 3 times}.   
 
Here’s a photo of the triple embossed sentiment circle:
I popped it in the freezer for a couple minute and when I took it out, it was curled.  No worries because the next step is to literally bend the piece until you hear it crack/snap.  I did it a couple of times which then makes the circle ‘flat’ again.  I inked up the cracked piece with brown ink and wiped it off with a clean towel.
 
I incorporated the circle into my card with the July SFYTT as the inspiration!

I distressed the edges of all the card panels with the same brown ink that I used on the sentiment piece.   I also used a flag from the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts.

That was a fun flashback technique for me.  I think that it adds so much interest to my card!  Have you tried the Cracked Glass technique recently?  I would love to see how you would incorporate it in the July SFYTT:

Let’s celebrate our birthday with a little ice cream!

Introducing…

LOVE & ICE CREAM

LoveAndIceCreamProductGraphic

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

LoveAndIceCreamCCProductGraphic

. . . . .

This is such a fun set!  If you have the DONUT YOU KNOW stamps and Confetti Cuts dies, you can see that the fonts and such are very similar.  I knew when I did the donuts that I wanted to do more sets in that same style.  And, yes, that may just be a hint for upcoming goodies, too!

My first project today is a tag featuring the new LOVE AND ICE CREAM stamps and Confetti Cuts…

Scoops2

The LOVE AND ICE CREAM Confetti Cuts die set features a scoop of ice cream, cone, cup, 2 piece cherry, spoon and a super duper fancy squiggly line.  Say what?  What in the world is that squiggly line for?…to make toppings!

Here’s a quick visual…

Cut a scoop of ice cream out of cardstock in the color of your choosing/topping.  I am making hot fudge here.  Place the squiggly line across the scoop.

IceCream2Cut

Now, run this through your die cutting machine.

IceCreamCut

Viola…ice cream topping!

Scoops

I added some Stickles for a little sparkle.  I love how it turned out!

The spoon was cut from gray cardstock and tied off with kraft colored linen thread to coordinate with the kraft cup (which I ran through my corrugating press).

I topped it with a red heart cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set.  The tag is cut from the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts set.

Scoops1

. . . . .

My next project is a clean and simple card using the new LOVE AND ICE CREAM stamps and Confetti Cuts dies.  I kept wanting to add more to this card, but finally I decided to leave it as shown…I’m glad I did!

IC

For this card, I created an ice cream cone topped with a cherry mounted on circles cut from the (previously released) CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shots…

IC2

I coordinated the pink scoop of ice cream with the pink patterned paper.  I had more layers going on at one point and then decided that I just need to keep it simple.
