HAPPY FALL-IDAYS: CHRISTMAS

By Jen del Muro
on October 15, 2015

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the third and final day of the first annual HAPPY FALL-IDAYS showcase event!  Over the last 2 days we have shared numerous Halloween and Thanksgiving projects and today we are sharing Christmas projects.  You are going to LOVE what the Confetti Crew has put together today (full link list of those blogging today toward the end of this post)!

Fallidays_Christmas

. . . . .

My project for you today was really fun to put together and can be enjoyed by all ages…as proven by my kiddos that just want to shake it!

DSC05982

I bought this snow globe last year (or possibly the year before that) at Hobby Lobby and I have just been holding onto it waiting for the right opportunity to use it.  The Santa from the new JOLLY HOLIDAY set, along with the BRANCH OUT Confetti Cuts die set.

Side view so you can see how they stand up…

DSC05979

DSC05980

I cut 2 of the Santa and 2 of the branches so that when I put them down on the “puddle” of hot glue, they would stick and stay upright better.

From the Santa pic above, you can also see the fluffy detail on Santa’s hat (Stickles + Flower Soft).  The tree branches also have Stickles on them for the appearance of snow.  And, of course, the bottom is filled with “snow,” as well.

I wrapped ribbon around the base of the snow globe, as to cover up the opaque plastic that is there and then I decided to dress up the top of the snow globe, too!

DSC05977

The holly leaves are cut from the *new* HOLLY Confetti Cuts die set and I embellished it with a wood ball/bead that is painted red and covered in ultrafine red glitter and topped off with a red rhinestone.  The finishing touch is 2 jingle bells tied off with a piece of Cappuccino TWINE (have I mentioned I love this stuff!?!)

So, I could not stop playing with all the goodies in this release!  One project led to another, which led to another which led to me almost losing some of my dies in the chaos on my desk, which led to…well, you know how it goes!

Here’s my first project that I have to share with you today…

DSC05878

This project uses a few different Reverse Confetti products.  Front and center, you can see the new Joy light bulb from the the MERRY & BRIGHT stamp set (cut with the coordinating Confetti Cuts).  That is layered on top of a piece of the polka dot ‘Tis the Season QUICK CARD PANELS with the (previously released) STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die.

DSC05887

Under the polka dot panel is the DOUBLE SCALLOP GARLAND Confetti Cuts layered on top of each other and adhered to the belly band that goes around the new FROSTED PILLOW BOX.

DSC05888

For the fringy end detail, I cut tissue paper with the (previously released) DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die and then used my sharp scissors to fringe them.  Finally, I added a few sequins and rhinestones for a little bling, bling!

Of course, I filled it with some candies, too…

DSC05889

 . . . . .

My next project today is one that I peeked on my scope yesterday.  Quick sidenote: if you have not gotten the Periscope app, I highly suggest downloading it on your mobile device (you can watch on your computer, too, I believe) and joining in all the fun we have there!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set.  I promise you will use this well beyond the holiday season, as the leaves are made from hearts…perfect for Valentine’s and Spring projects, too.

I was just itching to cut it out of black and created something for Halloween…so, I did…

DSC05876

For this card, I cut 2 wreaths from black cardstock and layered them on top of each other.  In the center, I stamped the “bring on the” sentiment from the new WINTER WORDS COORDINATES stamp set and paired it with “candy” create from the LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS stamp set.

DSC05869

That darling bat is from the TOO CUTE TO SPOOK stamp set and is cut with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.  He sit on top of a button tied off with new CHARCOAL TWINE.

I added sequins around the wreath for a tiny bit of sparkle and then added the sentiment from TOO CUTE TO SPOOK atop a layer cut from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die…

DSC05867

. . . . .

This next project features both the new LAYERED SNOWFLAKE along with the WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts dies…

DSC05898

This card is definitely not a traditional size.  I just cut a piece of paper down to what I wanted it to be and ran with it.  The finished size ended up being 7.5″ x 3.75″

The snowflakes are dual layered.  The bottom one is a bright pink and the top one is white with glitter.  I added a rhinestone in the center for a little more bling, too!

DSC05906

I love the subtle hint of bright color on this card!   You could do this in just about any color + white and it would turn out beautifully.  The word “peace,” cut from the WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts die set is triple layered for added dimension.

One more detail shot…

DSC05903

. . . . .

One more lil’ card before I send you on your way!

Is this reindeer not just the cutest you’ve ever seen?  I’ve had a blast color him and Santa and that has definitely got me in the holiday spirit…I wonder if my family will notice if I go straight to Christmas decorating!

DSC05918

This is another card that is far from a traditional size…5.5″ x 2.25″!  At least this one is going to fit in one of my A2 envies!

I colored this guy up with my Copics and added the polka dot scarf and antler details from the JOLLY HOLIDAY stamp set and then cut him out with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.  He’s popped up on the “snow” (Stickles) with a pop dot and is being showered with felt snowflakes from the JOLLY HOLIDAY stamp set…

DSC05914

DSC05917

Over the top, I added the large tag from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.  The sentiment is from the JOLLY HOLIDAY stamp set and the cute little heart is from the LAYERED SNOWFLAKE Confetti Cuts die set.  I tied it all together with CAPPUCCINO TWINE.  Can you see just how beautiful that twine is and why I had to bring it into the store!?!?

DSC05919

. . . . .

Before I send you off to the rest of the hop, I want to invite you to our online showcase event.  Be sure to mark your calendars and prepare to be inspired!

One of my most favorite parts of Christmas is the decorating!  And, you can’t have Christmas decorations without lights, so in the spirit of making things bright let me introduce…

MERRY & BRIGHT

MerryBrightGraphic

MERRY & BRIGHT features 5 light bulbs with 4 sentiments and one with a filament.  The base of the bulb is separate so it is easily stamped in a neutral color.  And, of course, we have a coordinating Confetti Cuts die…

MerryBrightCCGraphic

. . . . .

I absolutely love creating with the MERRY & BRIGHT set!  It’s so easy to put together bold and beautiful holiday creations, like this card using a slightly non-traditional color palette and the new HOLLY Confetti Cuts die set…

DSC05821

On this 4.25″ square card I added the (open) DOUBLE SCALLOP GARLAND Confetti Cuts in white as a subtle detail.  This has easily become one of my “go-to” Confetti Cuts!

Detail shot…

DSC05823

. . . . .

My second project that I have to share with you today is both fun and practical.  Fun because it’s crafty and uses both new and previously released Reverse Confetti goodies and practical because the holiday are quickly approaching and this is a fun way to dress up little gifties and gift cards.

Here’s what I started with…

DSC05712

To the left is a little glassine gift sack that I picked up from Michaels.  To the right of it you see a light bulb stamped from the new MERRY & BRIGHT stamp set, 2 cuts from the LEAFY Confetti Cuts die set, a gold banner cut from the LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts die set, CAPPUCCINO TWINE (my favorite) and a black button.

Assembly line…

DSC05709

I layered all the details and attached them to the bags using a little clothespin.  Now I just need to add a gift card and these are all set to go!

The finished product…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here! Introducing…

JOLLY HOLIDAY

JollyHolidayGraphic

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

JollyHolidayCCGraphic

Isn’t this Santa just the cutest there with his reindeer?!?

I’ve had a blast coloring and playing with them to make the holiday cards that I have share with you today!

First is a very simple and small card, measuring only 3″ x 4″ using the Santa, snow and sentiment from the JOLLY HOLIDAY set…

DSC05835

(I think I notice a rhinestone missing from my snowflakes on the right…LOL!!)

I added the twine on the top corner to make this like a tag and card in one.  It will be the perfect addition to top a gift!

The edge of his hat is made fluffy by using the white Flower Soft that I have had in my stash forever.  I adhere it with Diamond Stickles to give it the tiniest bit of sparkle…

DSC05836

One more detail shot of the sentiment and the CAPPUCCINO TWINE (y’all are going to LOVE this stuff!)…

DSC05837

. . . . .

My next card today also features the new JOLLY HOLIDAY set, along with the new ‘Tis the Season QUICK CARD PANELS and some other ‘Fetti Fan favorites…

DSC05830

The lined aqua paper is one of our new ‘Tis the Season QUICK CARD PANELS.  I think that you will love the mix of patterns included in this months mix!

Also featured on this card is the (previously released) DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die along the edge of the main image panel.  To create the snow drift, I cut the large square from the SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set and then used the DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts die to create the wave.  I added Diamond Stickles and ultrafine glitter to give it the perfect snowy sparkle.  You can also see a little more on the coloring and polka dot scarf detail here, as well…

DSC05839

The sentiment is stamped on the flag ended panel from the STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts and attached to a decorative paper straw that I picked up at Target (I think) and added some delicious MARASCHINO TWINE

DSC05848

. . . . .

Thank you to everyone for joining me on Periscope TWICE yesterday!  On the second scope of the day, I demonstrated how to use the new LAYERED SNOWFLAKE Confetti Cuts die, designed by our very own Confetti Crew member, Kay Miller!  As promised, here’s the finished product using the snowflake that I was playing around with (with added bling and paper piercing)…

I’m not gonna lie, this is a long post…filled with TONS of AWESOME stuff (including a list of Confetti Crew members posting even more inspirational projects today)!   Grab that cuppa, sit back and check out what’s coming to the Reverse Confetti Store on October 8th!

First in today’s line-up is our brand new *limited edition* QUICK CARD PANELS

‘TIS THE SEASON

(this is an updated product image)

QCPGraphic

QUICK CARD PANELS are limited edition premium heavyweight cardstock panels measuring 3.25″ x 4.5″.  Each package contains 2 of each 8 printed design.  They are designed for A2 card making, but you can easily use them on all of your paper crafting projects!  We will have a new set of QUICK CARD PANELS with each release. Grab them while you can, because once they’re gone, they’re gone!

You’ll see the new limited edition QUICK CARD PANELS used on a variety of projects from the Confetti Crew.  We can’t wait to see how you will use them on your creations!

. . . . .

You asked, we listened.  More words like the FANCY WORDS Confetti Cuts!  (We love this font, too)!

Introducing…

WINTER WORDS

WinterWordsCCGraphic

WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts contains 4 seasonal words.  The size of these is larger than the similar FANCY WORDS Confetti Cuts die set, making it easy to make a big, bold statement on your holiday projects.

Of course, we had to come up with a coordinating stamp set for those fabulous WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts dies!  Introducing…

WINTER WORD COORDINATES

WinterWordCoordinates

Mix and match these sentiments with the WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts for lots and lots of great sayings on your projects!

. . . . .

My first project today uses the new WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts, the WINTER WORDS COORDINATES stamp set along with the new ‘Tis the Season QUICK CARD PANELS and a couple more of our new additions to the shop (squeeeeeal!).

DSC05801

(Note, we have noticed a switch in the Quick Card Panels and this panel and an updated Product Graphic has been added).

For this project, I cut the one of the ‘Tis the Season QUICK CARD PANELS with the (previously released) TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die and then stamped the “bring on the” sentiment from the new WINTER WORDS COORDINATES stamp set to pair with the “merry” from the WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts (triple cut and layered for dimension).

The back side of the project…

DSC05807

Why would I show the back side?  It’s actually a detail shot of one of the new products we have in store! Introducing…

FROSTED PILLOW BOXES

PillowBoxGraphic

These pillow boxes are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS and definitely take your gift card, treat and small giftie giving to the next level!  In addition, they are food safe, BPA free and recyclable!

One more detail shot of this super easy and cute project

DSC05805

Did you notice that sweet snowflake on the tag, too?

Yep, that’s another one of the new products being released on October 8th and it’s designed by our very own Confetti Crew member, Kay Miller!  Introducing…

LAYERED SNOWFLAKE

LayeredSnowflakeGraphic

Take a look at just a few of the options using this incredible Confetti Cuts die…

SnowflakeIdeaSheet

This absolutely fabulous LAYERED SNOWFLAKE Confetti Cuts die set was inspired and designed based on Kay’s own beautiful clay ornaments that she has sold in her Etsy shop.  Here’s a look at one of those incredibly gorgeous ornaments created by Kay…

KMornament

We’ve made it easy to make your own creations like this with paper, felt, cork, etc. with the LAYERED SNOWFLAKE Confetti Cuts die set.  I love that everyone can create both smaller (like the one on the tag above), and larger ornate pieces very simply, like this…

DSC05783

I filled our FROSTED PILLOW BOX with red and green peppermints, added a belly band created from patterned paper and then topped it all with this beautiful felt ornament.

To make it an ornament, I simply added TWINE to the back (circle is cut from the die set)…

DSC05810

DSC05746

Are you wondering why it kind of looks like a sandwich on the bottom?  I added a sheet of cardstock in between the two layers of felt because my original intention/idea for this was for it to be a pin.  When I came up short searching for a pin back in my stash, I went ahead and made it into an ornament.

I added flatback pearls to this for a finishing touch.  I have to say that I LOVE how it turned out!

DSC05788

. . . . .

About that twine that I added to the back…

This is twine from The Twinery and I have had multiple colors in my stash for ages and I keep adding it to everything because it is such AWESOME quality 100% cotton twine.  As I kept reaching for it, I thought “I should just put this stuff in the Reverse Confetti store!”  So I did! I love being able to share great quality paper crafting items right along side all of the Reverse Confetti originals!

On October 8th we will be introducing ALL 16 COLORS (sold in 15 yard bundles)…

SOLID BAKER’S TWINE

Solid_Cappuccino     Solid_Charcoal     Solid_Stone   Solid_Natural

Solid_Blossom   Solid_Strawberry_   Solid_Pink_Sorbet   Solid_Maraschino

Solid_Mandarin   Solid_Marigold   Solid_Honeydew   Solid_Peapod   Solid_Caribbean   Solid_Denim   Solid_Midnight_Blue   Solid_Lilac  

. . . . .

My next project uses the twine, as well as one more Confetti Cuts die set that is releasing on October 8th.  Introducing…

HOLLY

HollyCCGraphic

This 5 piece Confetti Cuts die set features two sizes of holly leaves with stitched center line detail, as well as a base for 2 different styles of holly berries.

I keep reaching for this Confetti Cuts die set over and over, so be warned that you will see a lot of it on my holiday projects as it makes the most perfect seasonal embellishment!

Here’s a trio of tags that use the new WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts, WINTER WORD COORDINATES stamps along with the new HOLLY Confetti Cuts and Cappuccino SOLID BAKER’S TWINE

DSC05795

The tags are cut from THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts die set that was released last month.  This has definitely been a best seller and I am glad to see everyone enjoying it!

I cut the holly leaves from (Halloween!) patterned paper and then used white cardstock for the base and then added two of the solid berries and one of the berries that has the highlight cut.  The red sequin was the perfect bit of bling to set it all off!

DSC05772

One last shot of this trio that is going to make the most perfect additions to my gifties this year…

I have one final introduction for you today and I think you’re going to LOVE it!  I know I do and it’s going to be on my crafting desk for a long time to come!  Introducing…

WREATHS

WreathsCC

This set of two wreaths is perfect for the upcoming holiday season, but the wonderful and unique thing about these wreaths is that they are not created from a typical leaf shape, but rather from hearts so you will find yourself reaching for this time and time again throughout the year.  I may just have to make a Halloween project with them, too!

Here, I paired the large wreath from the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set with the WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts die set and the WINTER WORDS COORDINATES stamp set for a lovely trio of cards…

For these cards, I cut two of the word “peace” and layered them on top of each other for a little added dimension.  I also did this with the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die cuts and then slightly pulled up the edges.  Red sequins were a finishing touch that brought it all together…

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on December 18, 2014

Woot, Woot…time for 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 cards completed inside and out from each of our designers. A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such on 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.

On camera today is the sweet, stylish and creatively savvy, LISA HENKE

Hello, sweet Fetti’ Fans! Lisa Henke here bringing you this week’s Confetti Camera Challenge.  I pulled out the adorable Quirky Cutie: MARLEY MOOSE for my Inside & Out card today. I loved this challenge because I admit I have been horrible about doing up the inside of my cards recently. I used to do it all the time.  I forgot how fun (and cute) it is. It adds just that little something extra to your card that the recipient is SURE to love……AND it’s another great way to get more mileage out your supplies.

LH-photo1

I used the current Retro Sketch for my layout and added my favorite LET IT SNOW Confetti cuts done in vellum and topped with sequins. I hand cut a snowy hill and accented that with the CIRCLE GARLAND Confetti Cuts die.  I love this Marley Moose stamp set because it’s not just for holiday time. He can be used ALL winter long.  Here’s a closer look.

LH-photo2

With all the flakes flying, I decided to give him a hat. I stamped him and the hat on X-Press it blending cardstock and colored them up with Copics. I then cut him out and popped him up with some foam dimensionals.

LH-photo 3-INSIDE

Here is the INSIDE of my card. It’s a great way to pull in colors you used on the outside of your card. So I layered up some coordinating cardstock for the base. When using a line art image, like those from the Quirky Cuties line, I like to add a partially inked image of the same stamp done in a colored ink. I felt like there was a lot going on on the outside of my card, so the INSIDE was the perfect place for the sentiment. I also tied in another vellum Let It Snow flake. Still simple and super sweet! There is also plenty of space for a handwritten note.
