DECEMBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY AND…

By admin
on December 01, 2014

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans!  Happy Monday and Happy December!  I hope all that celebrated Thanksgiving last week had a wonderful time with family and friends!

Our sale on Thursday and Friday was a huge success and we will be packing orders and shipping those out just as fast as we can.  We know you love fast shipping (and so do we)!  We did have a few people say, “Darn, I missed it.” So, we decided to extend the sale for today only…

EXTThankfulCoupon

. . . . .

Being that it is the first day of the month, it is time for a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!

I think that you will have a lot of fun with this one.  It’s just a little more challenging, but that is so good for the creative mojo!  I can’t wait to see what you do with it!

Dec14

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.

Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!

Here’s my take on the sketch using Seasonal Sentiments, Circles ‘n Scallops Confetti Cuts, Love Note Confetti Cuts, North Pole Wishes Confetti Cuts

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on October 28, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY and I am going to squeeze in another Halloween card here before my favorite holiday is all over with and we are left with a sugar high and an hour less time due to Daylight Savings (ending).  For the record, I’m pretty sure that the person that “invented” Daylight Savings did not have early rising children!  I’m thankful my kiddos are now old enough to occupy themselves for a good hour before coming to wake us with, “I’m huuuunggggrrryyy.”

And, with that I will get off my little Daylight Savings soapbox.

Happy (almost) Halloween…

Wickedly

I started with a white card base, as I almost always do, but then decided to switch it up to kraft.  This made it easier to bring in the broom stamped on kraft without making it look out of place.  This is one of the reasons I don’t glue anything down until the card is d-o-n-e.

Detail shot of the clear embossed stars from So Many Stars on the black cardstock.  I love how subtle they are, yet they add so much…

Wickedly1

The main image panel is cut from the (large) GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die and stamped with a sentiment from CAST A SPELL.  The hat, cut from felt, and the broom are also from the same set/coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.  The bow is from the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set (love that bow!).

One more…

WEEK IN REVERSE

TGIF!

Ever have on of those weeks?  Yep, it’s been one of those.  I realized yesterday that I haven’t had a chance to create anything and today, I am setting aside some time to do just that.  I have a feeling my perspective on things might just be a little sunnier after that happens (and during, too).  What have you been up to creatively this week?  Have you had a chance to play along in this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY?  If not, check it out HERE and play along for a fun chance to win.

. . . . .

Being that it is Friday, it is time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to lately.

NEW RELEASE HOP

By admin
on October 08, 2014

Hello and THANK YOU for such a wonderful response to our October Special Mini Release!  I’ve received so many sweet comments and emails! Love you guys!

NowAvailable

Since our prize schedule change a little with this special mini release, here’s a reminder of times, etc…

ReadyForConfetti

All of the new release are available in the store now.

To celebrate the new release, the Confetti Crew has put together a fabulous hop with a ton of “Confetti Creativity” using the new stamps and Confetti Cuts dies.

Note, there is a full list of hoppers at the bottom of this post in case there are any breaks along the way.

. . . . .

TWO NEW CONFETTI CUTS

EnvieWrapProductGraphic   HangingOutProductGraphic

TWO NEW STAMP SETS

RoundaboutProductGraphic   RoundaboutAdditionsProductGraphic

. . . . .

I have A LOT to share with you today!

My first project for you today is a fun project that was very inexpensive to put together and the colors can be switched to accommodate any special occasion or holiday!

BirthdayCup

I started with a empty clear cup and lid that I snagged from my local deli and then added the front panel that is create with the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set, CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts and stars from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.

To get this shape from the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, I trimmed it at the perforation mark and then rounded the corners.  Easy Peasy!

I filled the cup with Jolly Rancher candies, put the lid on and tied a ribbon on top.

TIP: Secure your ribbon on the bottom of the cup with a little bit of double sided tape.

Finally, I added dangles created from the HB2U sentiment from the ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set stamped on CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die cuts, along with some addition stars that I cut our from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.  I topped the stars off with sequins and enamel dots.

Detail shot…

BirthdayCupDetail

. . . . .

This next project also features the new ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die (in a more “traditional” way) along with the new ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set…

SpecialDeliveryEnvie

This is a baby boy inspired envelope.  I love this color combination (gray, navy and orange) and this was so fun and easy to create!  Again, switch up the colors to accommodate your special occasion or holiday.

Detail shot…

SpecialDeliveryDetail

Here’s the flip side to write a to and/or from…

SpecialDelivery_Back

. . . . .

As promised yesterday, I’m back in Halloween mode!  (EEK…I still need to get my decorations up at home).

This project features the new HANGING OUT Confetti Cuts die that creates a door hanger…

HangingOutPocket

It was very easy to create this pocket door hanger (holding 2 snack size Hershey bars).

To create the base:

Cut a sheet of cardstock to 4.25″ x 11″

Score at 3.5″ x 3.27″ (these create the folds for the pocket)

I layered the top portion of my hanger with pattern paper.  To do this, you can cut both the pattern paper and the cardstock at the same time (you may have to run it back and forth a few times).  Or you can run them through separately.  If you choose to do them separately, mark lightly on the second sheet with pencil where to cut to insure that you get the pieces lined up.

A few detail shots…

HangingOutPocket_HangDetail

The sentiment is from the September release set, CAST A SPELL.  To embellish, I cut the witch hat from the CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts set from black felt and added a star from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.  I then added a purple heart button tied off with linen thread.

HangingOutPocket2

It’s a chocolate pocket!

HangingOutPocket_Detail1

. . . . .

Yes, I still have MORE to show you using this fabulously fun Confetti Cuts die!  Just one more project.  Here’s a fun lil’ Halloween themed giftie (again, switch up the theme/colors to create your unique hanger for any occasion)…

HangingOutDC

Instead of putting the hanger facing to the side, I did it on the top of this sheet of cardstock.  The perforated line was created using OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts…

HangingOutDC2

Detail of witch and sentiment from CAST A SPELL (cut with coordinating CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts), along with the rounded tag panel (turned upside down) from TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts…

Roundabout

Around and around we go! Have fun with these great versatile circle sentiments made to coordinate with the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die and the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set (both large and small non-scallop circles). In addition, the dashed lines create the return address portion on the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts, die. Also included in this set are 4 circles so that you can create your own bokeh effect project, or just use them as the polka dots (my favorite!).

 Set of 9 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

Large Circle 2.05”

Reverse Confetti stamps are high quality photopolymer mounted on an acetate sheet.

4”x6” stamp set

Roundabout Additions

Around and around we go…some more! Have fun with these everyday (including holidays!) circle sentiments made to coordinate with the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die and the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set (both large and small non-scallop circles). In addition, the lines create the return address portion on the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts, die.

Set of 6 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

Large Circle 2.05”

4”x6” stamp set

CONFETTI CUTS: Envie Wrap

We all know how to make a cute card, but now you can make a cute (and coordinating) envelope with the ENVIE WRAP. Simply cut from cardstock or pattern paper and add your sentiment/address label from the ROUNDABOUT and ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp sets to create one of a kind, jaw dropping envelopes. Just imagine your Christmas or birthday cards arriving and standing out against all the others! This die includes detailed debossing, a perforated line to easily crease over your envelopes and the center circle is the same size as the large non-scallop circle in the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set

SIZE REFERENCE:

Envie Wrap 5.76” x 2.4”

CONFETTI CUTS: Hanging Out

The Hanging Out die creates a cut out to create a door hanger. Imagine leaving a festive door hanger on your neighbor’s door or creating one for yourself. You know that the kids will love them for themselves, their friends and teachers! Create fun one-of-a-kind door hangers easily using the Hanging Out Confetti Cuts die.

While you can use this on any size cardstock, note that best results for centering the cut out hole are done using a 4.25” width sheet of cardstock.

SIZE REFERENCE:

Hanging Out 3.1” x 2”

A SPECIAL WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on September 17, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Today I have a super fun WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS post for you!  Reverse Confetti is the sponsor for the new sketch over on StampNation…how fun is that?!?

Catherine (of CatherinePooler.com/StampNation) and I have collaborated on a few things in the past, but I have to admit that has been by favorite so far!

The sketch is posted over on the Stamp Nation site and here’s my take on it using CAST A SPELL, CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts and CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts…

SNCard

Today, you’ll see cards from not only the Confetti Crew, but also from the talented StampNation Design Team HERE.

Not a member yet?  Today’s the last day for the $1 trial (sweet!).  You can get that HEREIt’s a wonderful community of stampers and there is always something new and fun to learn and see!

Catherine is also up today here on the Reverse Confetti blog with her take on the sketch with some of your favorite Reverse Confetti products!  I told you today was special and fun!

First, a note from Catherine herself…

Thank you so much to Jen for having me as a guest designer today and for hosting the challenge at StampNation this week! We have been blown away at the creativity from both Design Teams, but I really shouldn’t have been too surprised! When you are using RC stamps, great things happen! I got to play with Fresh & Fruity and have made FOUR cards with the set. The oranges on this card were Rock and Rolled to create depth and dimension and I couldn’t resist adding Frosted Lace Stickles to the oranges…now they are almost good enough to eat! I hope you enjoy the video – be sure to watch until the end for a little surprise. Check out my blog tomorrow, too for another fun card with this set and an out-of-the-box way to use it.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on September 10, 2014

Hello and Happy Hump Day!

It’s Wednesday and time for WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!

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, I am focusing on something super simple and a way to get more out of your stamps and Confetti Cuts dies…create your own embellishments.

I’ve done that here on this tag (TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts) I attached to a few cookies in a cello bag…

CookieTag

I have to admit, that I first reached for some pre-fabricated embellishments that I bought at a big box store, but then I thought better of it as I looked at the CAST A SPELL stamps on my studio desk.

I layered the broom and and witch hat, both cut from the coordinating CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts die set.  To dress it up a little, I paper pieced the ribbon around the hat and added a star (OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts) topped with a sequin and rhinestone.

Easy peasy, right?

Here’s a few tips to keep in mind when creating your own embellishments…

Keep it simple.  I stamped in black on kraft paper.  Because of the subdued color, it doesn’t take away from the main focal point, but rather enhances it.  I also want to mention, that I brought this project to the CKC convention last week and A LOT of people commented on how they loved the look of the black on kraft.

Still keeping it simple, layer coordinating images to create a fun, clustered look.

Dress it up a little if needed.  I added the paper pieced strip (same paper as the top of the tag) and the embellished star for just a little pop of color and bling.

. . . . .

I’m keepin’ it short and sweet as I have all your orders to get out the door!  Have a great day!

My first project for you today features the new TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

TreatTote1

Tutorial for how to assemble both of our new totes can be found HERE (video) and HERE (picture tutorial).

To create this TREAT TOTE, I used black and white patterned paper as I really wanted the colors on the “TREATS” panel to pop.  I cut 2 “TREATS” sentiments out…one in orange and one in white and layered them, slightly offset.  The circle reinforcer at the top of the bag is from the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shot…

TreatTote1detail

. . . . .

My second project today features a fun mix of new and previously released Reverse Confetti products…

GotCandy1

I saw these cute bags at Michaels and immediately knew what I wanted to do with them!

First things first…fill them with candy.  I put 2 mini Hershey bars in the bags.

Second…make them cute!

To do that, I cut the rounded top tag from the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die (I love when I get to use these dies in fun and different ways) and then made a score mark 1 inch in from the straight end (opposite the rounded end).  This is where the tag is folded over the bag.  I wanted a little more detail, so before I attached them to the bag I used the perforation line from the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts to add the perforation/dashed line.  To attach the tag to the bag, I simply used a small stapler.

On the bottom/round portion of the tag, I added patterned paper and then layered my embellishments.  The Kraft panel is cut from the new GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts and then stamped with the large dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS.  I created the spider with circles from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set, a small circle punch, enamel dots and strips of black cardstock.  The orange panel is cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set and is stamped with a sentiment from SPOOKY SENTIMENTS.

I’ll be giving these out to my kiddos’ teachers for Halloween.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again…I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!  Not the dressing up part, so much, but all the decor and projects that are all about Halloween!  I know most people love Christmas the most, but for me it’s Halloween, then Valentine’s Day and then Christmas.  Being that it’s (just about) fall, it is time to get started all those fun Halloween and Thanksgiving projects!

So, without further adieu let me introduce you to our Halloween stamp set and its coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

CAST A SPELL

The PRETTY PANELS: STARS panel is backed with a gray piece of cardstock cut from the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set (these are made to coordinate together).

Love the shape of that sentiment panel?  It’s one of the new dies in the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die set (more below)…

Crisp cool air, fall festivals, family gatherings…all things to be thankful for.

Introducing GIVE THANKS and the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

GiveThanksProductGraphicA

GiveThanksLabel_productgraphicA

The GIVE THANKS Confetti Cuts die set contains two label dies.  The larger die coordinates with the label image in the GIVE THANKS stamp set.  The smaller label is to use with other sentiments or as a layer on your cards, scrapbooks or other paper crafting projects.

I paired this set with the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts to create a fun giftie that’s perfect for a hostess, friend, teacher, family member (ok, well anyone, really!)…

I created my own embellishment by taking the apple (yes, the apple) from our CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set and flipping it upside down to create a pumpkin.  This was an idea I got from Confetti Crew member, Leigh Penner.  I tell ya, she is CLEVER!  I cut leaves from felt with the leaf swag die from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set.  The finishing touch is a button with twine and tulle that I popped on top of the pumpkin.

This is just part of the gift set that I created!

I also made a shadow box with the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die and GIVE THANKS stamp set…

ShadowBoxandTote

To create this 3D pumpkin, I cut 5 of the large GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts, folded them in half (crease with a bone folder) and adhered them together.  I topped off with leaves from FRESH ‘N FRUITY Confetti Cuts and a button tied up with linen thread…

Cast a Spell Confetti Cuts

The Cast A Spell Confetti Cuts die set coordinates with the Cast A Spell stamp set, with many of the images being able to be used on their own. Create wickedly delightful projects that are sure to wow!

Set of 4 wafer thin dies

NOTE: Many of our die sets are connected by thin wire and may need to be released from each other. To do so, tin snips are best, but these can often easily be taken apart by a gentle hand. Rough edges where the dies were attached may be sanded lightly (careful not to sand the cutting edge).

SIZE REFERENCE:

Witch 1.7” x 2.8”

Give Thanks Label Confetti Cuts

The Give Thanks Confetti Cuts die set coordinates with the large label image in the Give Thanks stamp set. We have also included a smaller version of the label to be used with other sets or on its own as a fun and fabulous detail.
