TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on September 02, 2014

Happy Tuesday ‘Fetti Fans!

For those of you that had a long weekend, I hope you enjoyed yourself and found time to get inky and crafty!  On Friday, I got a call from each of my kiddos’ school nurses calling me to get them because they weren’t feeling well.  I made the call to go ahead and go to the doc and I am glad I did.  They spent most of the weekend on the couch, resting and recuperating.  My hubby played Mr. Mom/Nurse (thank goodness!) while I got a bit crafty.  I think I finished something like 10 projects and I can’t wait to share them with you later this week!

NewReleaseSept

On Friday we start our sneak peeks and on Saturday, I will be at CKC San Marcos doing some Reverse Confetti demos and make ‘n takes.  Will I see you there?

. . . . .

It’s TIME FOR A TUESDAY!

I had fun playing along with this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY…

Sept14

Want to play along or want to see more inspiration using this fun sketch?  Click HERE!

Here’s my take on the sketch…

SFYTT1

If you have followed me for any amount of time, you may know that I just LOVE making stuff and decorating for Halloween.  I have a little trouble making stuff for the fall holiday in the middle of summer, but as soon as that calendar inches towards September 1st, I am full steam ahead!

For this card, I used the SPOOKY CUTIES and SPOOKY SENTIMENTS stamp sets along with the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts.  I just love these lil’ ghosties!

SFYTT4

I heat embossed the fence image for added detail and texture…

SFYTT3

The rectangular panels going across the card base are layered with card stock and black and gold washi for a fun element…

Confetti Camera

By admin
on August 28, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

The (long) weekend is in view and we have a fantastic CONFETTI CAMERA for you today!

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 a fun tip or technique 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 answer the same set of questions/show a tip 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.

3) For this round we are focusing on ABC (anything but a card) projects.  Keep your eyes peeled for some fabulous ways to use your Reverse Confetti stamps!

. . . . .

Today on Confetti Camera we have the oh-so-very talented, KATHY MARTIN

KathyMartinIntro

140822-Straws-III

Hello ‘fetti fans! It’s Kathy Martin here today to share with you a project I’ve been wanting to make ever since I first saw the HERE WE GO stamp set and HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts. I think this collection is perfect for creating invitations, cupcake toppers, straws and decorations for a little one’s birthday party. Just imagine all you can do with these adorable stamps and dies! Banners, thank you notes and more!

 140822-Straws-Details

140822-Straws-Tops

For this project I purchased some paper straws from the grocery store and attached the stamped and die cut pieces with a tiny glue dot. That’s it! For the display, I created a fun little tag with the TAG ME, TOO and CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts and attached it to a Ball jar with a pretty yellow grosgrain bow. To keep the straws standing up nicely I added a little rice to the bottom of the jar. Better yet, use some matching M&Ms! Have fun!

CUTTING EDGE HOP

By admin
on August 22, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Today we have a TON of inspiration on the blog!  This is actually the second post for the day.  If you came here looking for the WEEK IN REVERSE, just scroll on down after you are done reading this post.

What is this post?…it’s super fun and exciting!  Reverse Confetti is pleased to be a sponsor for THE CUTTING EDGE blog hop…

cuttingedge

You’re invited to play along in this blog hop!  It officially opened today and will close on August  25th at 11:55pm PST.  This hop is being hosted by the fabulous Paulina of Pretty Pink Posh.  You can link up your creation and find out more details on the PPP blog HERE.

I had so much fun creating for this hop!  I love using my Confetti Cuts dies and I used a *few* of them together on this card…

PPPHopCard

The main panel consists of the following Confetti Cuts:

TAG ME

CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS

PETALS ‘N POSIES

Detail shot of the flowers cut from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts set (the centers are stamped with images from the coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set).  The sentiment is from the LOTS TO SAY stamp set and is heat embossed…

PPPHopCardDetail

Don’t you just love those Pretty Pink Posh sequins?!

When people see my cards in person, they are often surprised at my layers and use of dimensional adhesive.  I thought I’d include a “depth” shot so you could see it on this card…

PPPHopCardDetail1

In addition to using the above mentioned Confetti Cuts dies, I also used the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts die set to create a tab tuck.

You can see the video how-to HERE.

Today I’m sharing a sweet little basket made from the Tag Me Too Confetti Cuts as well as the Double Edge Scallop Border. Here’s a little tutorial on putting these together and getting even more use out of your fabulous Reverse Confetti dies!

The response to the FABULOUS FLAMINGO set has been…well, FABULOUS! We just received a large order of the stamps over the weekend and they are almost sold out.  The coordinating Confetti Cuts sets are sold out.  Both are on order and I will update the Facebook page and send a newsletter when our stock has been replenished again.  Thank you all for your support and patience!
