WEEK IN REVERSE

By Jen del Muro
on September 25, 2015

Hello and TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans!

What an awesome week it has been here!  What’s happening here, you ask?  There’s the daily routine of shipping orders, checking emails and other little tasks that are all part of being a business.  I’m fortunate to do this from home with a couple of doggies at my feet most days.  We’ve been researching and looking at office space, but it looks like we are staying based at home for now.  I am grateful for the opportunity to work from home, to be available to my kids and to make my own hours (and there are lots and lots of odd hours in there!). I am grateful that I took this leap a few years ago and I get to share my creative passion with  you.  I am so very grateful for YOU, for your support and for you sharing your creativity with me.  Needless to say, I am grateful for A LOT and I am also VERY excited!  There is a lot happening behind the scenes here that I can’t reveal quite yet.  But those long, odd hours are being put to good use to bring new products and exciting events (both online and in person) to you!  Today, I have shelves being built in the Reverse Confetti office and soon those shelves will be packed with new goodies!  Stay tuned! XO-Jen

. . . . .

Now, let’s take a peek at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week!

WEEK IN REVERSE

By Jen del Muro
on July 17, 2015

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…

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:

I just love our birthday release!  It’s been a blast to play with and I know that I will find myself reaching for these products over and over again.

My first project that I have to share with you uses the CIRCLE SENTIMENTS, the coordinating SCALLOPED CIRCLE and STAR GARLAND Confetti Cuts dies…

BabyCard

I added the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER across the card to tie in the green of the stamped sentiment.

The STAR GARLAND Confetti Cuts was used as a white on white detail on the circle (cut from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set).  It’s such a subtle detail, but I love what it brings to this card.

My second card today also features the new CIRCLE SENTIMENTS stamp set along with the new limited edition LET’S CELEBRATE Quick Card Panels and STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts dies…

ThanksCircle

This card literally came together in about 5 minutes…gotta love quick and easy, yet still eye catching!

Detail shot…

. . . . .

Can I just say that I absolutely LOVE the new PARTY HATS stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts die set!?

Here, I paired them with the new STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set, FANCY WORD COORDINATES stamps, GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND, LOVE NOTE (heart) and DOCUMENTED (rounded rectangle) Confetti Cuts dies.

PartyHatsCard

I can’t stop creating fringe detail, either!  If you missed the how-to on this, you can see it HERE on day one of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI.

I have one more project to share with you and this one may just be my favorite from this release.  It’s actually the first project that I made for the sneak peeks/hop and I’m pretty pleased this was how I got my creative juices flowing.

*LOVE* this quote from the new GOD IS GOOD stamp set…

Shine

In addition to the new GOD IS GOOD stamp set, I also used the new STITCHED FLAG TRIO, PETALS ‘N POSIES and PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts and the DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP Confetti Cuts dies.

This was originally created to go into a frame, but then I couldn’t find the frame that I was searching for so I went with sticking it on a card front and calling it done.

. . . . .

Got that cuppa joe?  Here we go!

My first reveal today is a set that will be an everyday go-to set that provides a simple, yet bold, circle graphic along with sentiments for lots and lots of occasions.

Introducing…

CIRCLE SENTIMENTS

CircleSentimentsProductGraphic

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts die…

ScallopedCircle

. . . . .

This set is perfect for all sorts of paper crafting projects.  My first instinct was to use it on a card, but it morphed into something completely different and I love the outcome!

CircleTagTote1

This sentiment is perfect for all those upcoming grads and that was kind of my thought process/theme for this project as it came about.  I started with the flag ended panel (see below) and the CIRCLE SENTIMENTS stamp and coordinating Confetti Cuts die on a card.  From there I put it on the FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts die cut and layered it on the paper cut with the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts die set.  As you can see, I didn’t end up with a card, either.  I cut kraft cardstock with the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set to create a little gift bag/gift card holder.  The sentiments and colors can easily be switched out for just about any occasion!

CircleTagTote

CircleTagTote2

Here’ the FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts open.  Perfect for a little handwritten wish!

CircleTagTote3

Notice anything else that may be new?  Yep, it’s that darling string of stars AND that stitched flag-ended panel!

Introducing…

STAR GARLAND

StarGarlandCCProductGraphic

And…

STITCHED FLAG TRIO

StitchedFlagTrio

This STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set is a fun layering die set.  Each of the panels features a stitched, as well as a debossed, detail line.  Use on their own or all together for a great addition to your paper crafting projects!

 . . . . .

This second project using the CIRCLE SENTIMENTS stamps set and coordinating Confetti Cuts die is a set of tags I created for a friend that has her own clothing business.  I thought that these would a fun addition to her line of little girl tanks that she creates.

We have had several requests for a faith based set.  I really liked the idea of this and worked hard at making it fit with all things Reverse Confetti.  I adore how it came out!

Introducing…

GOD IS GOOD

GodIsGoodProductGraphic

This set is perfect for cards, scrapbook pages, Bible journaling and just about any other paper craft that you could think of!

Here, I created a card using the largest sentiment from GOD IS GOOD, along with a panel from the  new STITCHED FLAG TRIO and (previously released) SUN ‘N CLOUDS, LOVE NOTE (heart) and DOCUMENTED (rounded rectangle) Confetti Cuts die sets…

ShineHim

I love how bright and cheery this card is…the perfect addition to the flowers that I am giving to my son’s teacher this week for Teacher Appreciation!
