COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: Christmas Cheer, Cool Friend, Sweet Holiday and So Much More

By Jen del Muro
on November 05, 2017

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to DAY ONE of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!

Here’s our schedule for the next few days…

. . . . .

Well, ‘Fetti Fans, here it goes! Jeanne Jachna is sharing projects here for the sneak peek days.  I’ll be back for the hop! Now, you know the drill…sit back, enjoy that cuppa and all of the Confetti Creativity we have in store for you today.

First up is our brand new 6×6 paper pad…

CHEERFUL & KIND

This paper pad has all the right designs and colors for seasonal projects, but easily transitions into a pad that you can reach for all year long.

The Confetti Colors that are in this pad are: Midnight, Lime Green, Flamingo, Rose Red, Baby Blue, Mist and Stone

. . . . .

We have 3 great stamp set introductions for you today (and lotsa Confetti Cuts dies, too).  First up for the stamps is…

CHRISTMAS CHEER

Coordinating Confetti Cuts

Before we hop into the projects, I need to introduce another Confetti Cuts die set that is already gaining a lot of attention…

SCALLOPED SQUARES

. . . . .

Jeanne’s first project of the day features a combination of the new CHEERFUL & KIND 6×6 Paper Pad, CHRISTMAS CHEER stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts and the new SCALLOPED SQUARES Confetti Cuts…

These Santa’s Helpers will have you smiling all season long!

There’s lots of accessories (presents a stocking and a sack) and fun sentiments so you can personalize them for everyone on your NICE list!  Matching Confetti Cuts make them a breeze to cut and arrange as you like.

Do you love that Scallop Square frame?  Jeanne used the largest layer of a nested set of 3 dies.  The finished card is 4 ½” Square, and the die cut Scallop Square is 4 1/8”.

. . . . .

Next up in our introductions is a pair of frosty pals…

COOL FRIEND

Coordinating Confetti Cuts

We have a fabulous new 3.25″ x 4.5″ panel, too…

SCALLOP STRIPE PANEL

. . . . .

This next card pairs the new COOL FRIEND stamps and Confetti Cuts dies with the SCALLOP STRIPE PANEL and CHEERFUL & KIND 6×6 Paper Pad…

Layering the SCALLOP STRIPE PANEL with the pattern paper is a fun way to build detail and texture to your projects.  Note, the panel can be used in any direction, for even more possibilities.

The snowflake on this card come from the LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts die set…

One more detail shot…

. . . . .

Here we are at the final introductions for the day and then I’m sending you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew has been up to using the new release goodies.  But first, a little story…

Last year, hubs and I were at Costco doing some Christmas shopping and I picked up a couple of gingerbread house kits.  We had relatives coming in for the holidays and I figured it would be a fun activity to do all together.  I wanted them to be a surprise, so I hid them away in my closet.  Our company came and we had a fabulous time.  They left and then January came and went and before long, I was getting out some stuff in our closet when I spot the 2 gingerbread house boxes sitting up there…in March.  Yes, for 3 months I totally forgot about them.  I didn’t want to bring them out then, so I figured we would do a Christmas in July thing.  Guess what?  I totally forgot about them again!  Granted, I have had A LOT on my plate this year with chemo, surgery, radiation and just life in general, but it’s a little embarrassing to admit that they are still on the top shelf of my closet.  Hopefully, I’ll remember to bring them out after Thanksgiving.  I think we’ll pass on eating them, though!

So why that story?  Because it was a bit of an inspiration for developing this new set…

SWEET HOLIDAY

Coordinating Confetti Cuts

Here is the first of 2 Cover Panels that we are releasing this month…

LARGE DIAMOND COVER PANEL

 . . . . .

Jeanne: I have lots of fond memories of decorating ginger bread houses with my kids. I think more candy made it into our mouths than onto the houses!  This stamp set is calorie free and super sweet!

 

 The details on this confection are amazing!  This card has such a tempting scene…a gingerbread house surrounded by gum drop trees…

 

The chimney has a swirl of gems rising from it, and there is a peppermint walk way to the front door.

 

The Large Diamond Cover Panel makes for a beautiful background. Here it is layered over a watercolor background.  This Cover Panel is magical! You can see the cut out diamonds, X’s between the diamonds,  and ovals surrounding the diamonds!

 . . . . .

It’s time for us to send you on your way to see more fabulous creations using the November release products.  You may even catch a glimpse at another new Cover Panel, too!

HAPPY FALL-IDAYS: CHRISTMAS

By Jen del Muro
on October 20, 2016

Greetings, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s our third and final day of this 2nd annual HAPPY FALL-IDAYS celebration here at Reverse Confetti!  I’m sure you have enjoyed the Halloween and Thanksgiving projects that we have shared the last two days and we have a fun finale for you with Christmas today!

Fallidays_Christmas

. . . . .

Being that I did banners for days 1 & 2, I thought that I would keep with the same theme for today.

dsc_0307

The bases for this banner with cut from the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die set.

Each end is cut from kraft cardstock and then adorned with a bow created from the LAYERED BOW Confetti Cuts die set.  I topped it off with a button tied off with CHARCOAL Striped Twine.  On the bottom of the panel is a LIME GREEN strip cut with dots from the EDGE ESSENTIALS Confetti Cuts die set.

dsc_0299

The next panel is a white TOPPED OFF TAG that is layered with a BRICK cardstock layer cut with the BIG STRIPES TAG LAYER Confetti Cuts die set. From there, I added the tree from the MERRY CHRISTMOOSE Confetti Cuts die set and two snowflakes cut from the SNOWFLAKE TRIO Confetti Cuts die set…

dsc_0308

The center banner is cut from CLOUD WHITE cardstock and is layered with a kraft panel that I cut with the JINGLE ALL THE WAY Confetti Cuts die.  I popped it with dimensional adhesive for added dimension.

Ok, I’m sending you on your way to see all of the fabulous creations from the Confetti Crew…

Today we are introducing 2 new stamp sets along with some great new Confetti Cuts dies!

I absolutely LOVE real vintage ornaments!  So much so that I wanted to have them as stamps here at Reverse Confetti!

Introducing…

VINTAGE ORNAMENTS

vintageornamentsproductgraphic

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

ccvintageornamentproductgraphic

Before I jump into my first card for today, I want to share with you another new Confetti Cuts die…

2 WAY STRIPES COVER PANEL

cc2waystripescoverpanelproductgraphic

(Yep, just like the 2 WAY STRIPES TAG LAYER that I revealed yesterday).

. . . . .

My first card today features both the VINTAGE ORNAMENTS stamps and Confetti Cuts dies along with the new 2 WAY STRIPES COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts die…

dsc_0234

I stamped the ornaments in BRICK, RC AQUA and LIME GREEN Confetti Colors ink and place them on top of the 2 WAY STRIPES COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts with a piece of ICED AQUA under the bottom stripes.  I love the white on white, but it needed a little extra pop of color and the ICED AQUA does just that.

Detail shot…

dsc_0237

The ornaments are “hung” with Caribbean TWINE and sequins were added for a little touch of bling…

dsc_0235

. . . . .

Before I get to my next card using this duo, I’d like to introduce you to another Confetti Cuts die that will be available on October 8th…

JINGLE ALL THE WAY

ccjingleallthewayproductgraphic

This is a single die that cuts all 4 words at once.

I’ve used the new JINGLE ALL THE WAY Confetti Cuts die along with the new 2 WAY STRIPES COVER PANEL and VINTAGE ORNAMENTS stamps (ornament hanger) and Confetti Cuts dies here…

dsc_0271

“Jingle All The Way” is cut directly from the card base and then is backed with BRICK and AVOCADO cardstock.

dsc_0266

The ornament consist of 2 VINTAGE ORNAMENTS cuts layered/popped up and embellished with leaves (I’m about to reveal those in just a sec), Cappuccino TWINE and jingle bells.

For this card, I cut the 2 WAY STRIPES COVER PANEL cut in half and backed with our new STONE cardstock.  The scalloped edge was created by cutting our new AVOCADO cardstock with the (previously released) WONKY DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die…

dsc_0267

. . . . .

Our second stamp set that we are revealing is the latest addition to our faith based line of stamps…

CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS

christmasblessingsproductgraphic

One of the Confetti Crew Design Team members asked, “Can we please get a wreath with leaves on?”  How about one with leaves, holly and pine needles?…

LEAFY WREATH

ccleafywreathproductgraphic

The CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS stamp set pairs beautifully with the LEAFY WREATH Confetti Cuts die set…

dsc_0190

The wreath is built up with leaves cut in AVOCADO and LIME GREEN and is adorned with holly and pine needles.  I put in atop a piece of patterned paper from the new VERY MERRY 6 x 6 PAD and gave it a bow made from Natural TWINE

dsc_0192

Detail shot of the CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS sentiment…

dsc_0193

. . . . .

Wishing for a white Christmas?  Well, you can have one on paper with the new snowflake Confetti Cuts…

SNOWFLAKE TRIO

ccsnowflaketrioproductgraphic

My last introduction for today is a SUPER FUN new Confetti Cuts die set that will set your cards apart from anyone else’s!

POP UP CIRCLE

cccirclepopupproductgraphic

Here’s what you can do with the new SNOWFLAKE TRIO and POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts (and new CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS stamps)…

dsc_0216

With the POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts, you are able to “pop up” a portion of your card and embellish.  The card still opens and closes as normal and can still fit into an A2 size envelope (**see tutorial below**).

Detail shot of the popped up portion of the card with the stitched circle and scalloped circle included in the POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts die set used to create layers…

dsc_0217

. . . . .

On my next card, I did it just a little differently.  I cut the card base from the new STONE cardstock and then created a stitched circle using the DETAILED CIRCLES Confetti Cuts (as opposed to adding the stitched circle layer included in the POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts die set)…

dsc_0272

I layered the scalloped circled included in the POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts die set behind the STONE base.  The sentiment, from the new CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS stamp set, is stamped in black ink in the center…

dsc_0274

To create the snow drift on this card, I used the rounded edge from the EDGERS Confetti Cuts die set along with Stickles and some matte/shiny glitter.  The trees are from the new MERRY CHRISTMOOSE stamp set and are watercolored and cut using the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.  I added the same glitter to the limbs as “snow.”

dsc_0273

My finishing touches for this card are Charcoal Striped TWINE tied through a wood button, along with sequins and a star cut with SEEING STARS Confetti Cuts die set from ICED AQUA card stock.

. . . . .

As promised, here is a short tutorial on how to use the POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts die set…

Yep, that easy! *wink*

Other than the fact that you will be making seriously awesome cards with this Confetti Cuts die set, the best part is that (using these measurements) your card will still fit into an A2 size envelope!

. . . . .

Our CLOUD WHITE Cardstock is amazing to watercolor on and I had a lot of fun with this moose and my watercolors to create these darling tags…

dsc_0177

If you’re thinking, “That ‘No Peeking’ tag looks new, you’re right!”…

NO PEEKING TAG LAYER

ccnopeekingtaglayerproductgraphic

This is just one of the latest additions to the tag layers that worked with the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die set!

Here’s one of the other layers that we are releasing this month (used on the other tag)…

2 WAY STRIPES TAG LAYER

cc2waystripestaglayerproductgraphic

On the No Peeking tag, I cut the base (TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts) from the new BRICK cardstock and then layered it with the NO PEEKING Confetti Cuts cut from CLOUD WHITE.  The moose and tree are watercolored and I added a little bit of Stickles to the tree to mimic snow.  Finally, I added one of the hangers from the HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die set and attached it to the gift with Maraschino TWINE…

dsc_0182

The other tag uses the new 2 WAY STRIPED TAG LAYER Confetti Cuts (cut from *new* STONE cardstock layered atop the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts…

dsc_0181

The moose, trees and sign are all watercolored.  I added a hand cut drift of glittery snow for added detail…

dsc_0181

The tag is tied to the TREAT TUBE TOPPER Confetti Cuts (released last month) which is cut from STONE cardstock. I stamped the snowflake trio using white pigment ink for a little added detail on the topper.

WINTER & HOLIDAY COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP

By Jen del Muro
on December 11, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans…

We’re super excited to be a part of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop both as a participant and a sponsor!

The theme for this one is Winter/Holiday and everyone is invited to play along!  All of the details for the hop, prizes and how you can join in the fun can be found HERE.

BlogHopGraphic

. . . . .

I had a lot of fun creating a card for this hop!

DSC_0375

The base of the card is covered with kraft plaid paper (LOVEEE this stuff)!  I stitched around the edges to add a little bit of texture and I think it’s the perfect touch to this card.

DSC_0372

From there I layered 2 large wreaths cut from the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set.  On top of wreath is a cup from the CAFFEINATED CUPS stamp set (cut with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set).  I colored it in ombre red, just like the red cups currently found at Starbucks.

I cut the cup sleeve from kraft paper and ran it through my paper crimper so that it would resemble a real sleeve.  On top of that is the word “joy” cut from the WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts.

For a finishing touch, I added gold hearts cut from the YOU ARE A STAR Confetti Cuts die set and topped them with gold sequins and gold rhinestones.

WEEK IN REVERSE

By Jen del Muro
on December 04, 2015

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Do you have a fun weekend planned?  I’m really getting into the Christmas spirit this year and have the house decorated.  I look forward to putting up our trees this weekend.  We have a family tree with ornaments collected over the years and a pretty tree that I decorate all in red and gold for our entry.  I don’t think that the kids will argue too much when I tell them that we are going to make goodies, too!   Thankfully, most of my shopping is done.  I just have one more gift to get for one of the angels that we adopted.  This year we were able to adopt 4 angels.  I am grateful for the chance to be able to make another child’s Christmas a little brighter and to teach my kids about giving and not just getting.  One of our angels requested “arts and crafts items.”  I may have gone a little crazy with that one!

Here’s a look at one of the many decorations I put up this week (it’s from my hubby’s childhood)…

Bugs

. . . . .

Well, it’s Friday and time to take a peek at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

CONFETTI CAMERA

By Jen del Muro
on December 03, 2015

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans…it’s Thursday and time for 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 each of our designers will be coming up with a SET of something. You’ll see gift sets, card sets, pocket scrapping sets and much more this time around.

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.

. . . . .

In the spotlight today is the sweet and talented, SARAH GOUGH

SarahIntroPic

I’ve created a set of decorated FROSTED PILLOW BOXES today, this year Christmas is just the three of us, so I’ve made these in lieu of placecards. I intend to fill them with after dinner mints and a toy car for my little guy.

confettiCameraSarahGoughDec (5)

I’ve used the PARTY HATS Confetti Cuts to make Santa hats.

confettiCameraSarahGoughDec (2)

The believe sentiment from YOU ARE A STAR was perfect for the Santa theme!

confettiCameraSarahGoughDec (3)

To create a two tone sentiment flag, I cut the STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts, then adhered glitter washi to the lower half before stamping the names with the awesome ALPHABETICAL stamp set.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By Jen del Muro
on December 02, 2015

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

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

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS exactly?…

It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  It’s us taking a closer look at how something is created, etc.  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, Amy Sheffer, shares a fun technique with wow factor!

AmySIntroPic

RC120215WITW1-1

Hi ‘Fetti Fans, Amy here today, with an easy masking technique that gives a fun “how’d she do that?” look.

RC120215WITW1-2

I’ve used the technique to stamp the ornament on today’s tag. The basic steps are to first die-cut a shape, then, using the negative of the die-cut as a mask, repeatedly stamp a sentiment (or small image) to fill the unmasked area.

RC120215WITW1-3

First, I die-cut a Gift Card Holder Tag in white card stock along with a second Gift Card Holder Tag from recycled copy paper (this will be the mask, you could also use masking paper). Within the copy paper die-cut, I’ve cut out a large circle using one the dies in the Circles ‘N Scallops die set.

RC120215WITW1-4

I used a bit of washi to adhere the copy paper tag mask to the card stock tag, then repeatedly stamped the word “Christmas” from Winter Word Coordinates in light grey ink. Before removing the mask, I used a sponge dauber to apply some soft gray shadowing around the outer part of the circle. Remove the mask to reveal your stamped and sponged ornament.

RC120215WITW1-5

I embellished the bottom of the tag with some black and white striped paper, adorned the ornament with some holly and felt berries (both from the Holly Confetti Cuts die set) as well as a “merry” die-cut (from Winter Words Confetti Cuts), then finished with a Hang Ups tag topper, some Honeydew twine, and some gold sequins.
