Confetti Camera

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Thursday and 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 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 how Reverse Confetti stamp sets are compatible with each other and each of the Confetti Crew members is picking two of their favorites to pair together on their project.

Today the spotlight is on the one and only, Stacey Schafer

Stacey here and I’m thrilled to be and share this super fun birthday card/sticky note holder!  Who says that BEBE BUNNY has to be colored?!  I adore this sweet bunny and love to see her framed up with the LOVE NOTE like this, all subtle and sweet!

Here’s a closeup of Miss Bebe Bunny!  The two stamp sets that I used for my project today are BEBE BUNNY and ALL ABOUT YOU…a perfect pair!

bebe note holder

At CHA in Janaury, one of the make -n- takes was a really cute (and simple) sticky-note holder!  I knew I wanted to try this at home using some of my favorite Reverse Confetti stamps and dies!

Here’s how!

First, score a 4 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock at 5 1/2 and again at 2 3/4.

score

Then, fold the 5 1/2 score line down (like you would for your tent-style card), then fold the 2 3/4 score line up the opposite way.  Attach some strong adhesive and attach another piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card stock over the top.fold and adhere

Then, your sticky-note holder is ready for decorating!

The Confetti Cuts: TAG ME, CLASS ACT, and LOVE NOTE were all layered up together to create a fabulous frame and focal point for BEBE BUNNY and some birthday sentiments from ALL ABOUT YOU.

After adding some yummy paper and embellishments including ribbon, button, twine, and epoxy hearts….and this sweet gift is ready for giving!

Week In Reverse

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

I hope everyone has fun weekend plans ahead.  It’s more of the same here for the del Muro household…these boxes just will not end!  Of course, a little exploring time and R&R are most definitely in the works, as well as some time to GET INKY!  I had a chance to create yesterday and it felt so good to play again!  I’ll be sharing what I made next week.

Right now it’s time to take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has done this week in the WEEK IN REVERSE.

Lisa did a great job of combining sets to create this fun, sports themed card.

ALL ABOUT YOU, PETALS ‘N POSIES, BEAUTIFUL BANNERS

Val had fun mixing and matching a variety of Confetti Cuts die sets to create this darling journal for a lil’ friend of hers.

TAG ME, PETALS ‘N POSIES, OFFICE EDGES, LOVE NOTE, WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

Val also created this card that I am swooning over!

PETALS ‘N POSIES, PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, ALL ABOUT YOU, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

Leigh’s card is so soft and elegant.  I love the multi-colored feather.

PAPER CRANE, PEACOCK PRETTIES

With Teacher Appreciate just around the corner, Amber is the perfect muse with this card!

CLASS ACT, CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts

Sarah’s card is a showstopper!

PEACOCK PRETTIES, PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts

Heather never ceases to amaze me with her use of PEACOCK PRETTIES (and embossing powder)!

PEACOCK PRETTIES, LOTS TO SAY

Stacey’s card is fun and full of color!  I love the combo of stamps here!

PETALS ‘N POSIES, PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts, CARTON CUTIES, CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts

Hello there, ‘Fetti Fans!

Yes, it’s been a little quiet here on the Reverse Confetti blog.  My intention was to be getting inky by now, but that hasn’t exactly been the case as the boxes seem to be multiplying as we unpack them.  Who knew we had so much stuff?  I keep thinking that minimalist must have it made when moving!  Needless to say, I do not fall into that category.  With most of the moving turbulence in our rear view, we are settling in nicely to our new home, neighborhood and schools (both kiddos started this week).  Getting inky is top priority, although I am a little worried about my stamping mojo.

I couldn’t wait to dive into our newest Confetti Camera round and gladly went first!  Don’t y’all LOVE how easily all of Reverse Confetti’s stamps work so well together?

DSC02534

I chose to use the little notebook sheet image (times two!) from the CLASS ACT stamp set and Confetti Cuts as a backdrop for my main focal point of my card.  Then I grabbed my GO TOGETHER set and put “together” a sweet sentiment, popping up the “together” onto a BEAUTIFUL BANNER Confetti Cut.  The aqua piece of the sentiment is a partial cut also from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts dies.  I love getting more from my dies and finding other ways to use them!  Finally, a few cuts from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts dies in white and popped up on foam boosters made for some fun flowers to finish off my card.

WEEK IN REVERSE

on March 20, 2014

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Friday and time to take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Lisa’s take on the “Tab Tuck Card” (name courtesy of Confetti Crew member, Sarah) using the new CLASS ACT stamp set and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts (along with arrows from ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS)  is absolutely FABULOUS (and it uses March’s Color Challenge colors, too!)…

Lisa also made this darling cheerful Easter card using CARTON CUTIES stamp and CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts…

**For those waiting on Carton Cuties Confetti Cuts, we are awaiting our shipment.  They were sent overnight from the manufacturer… to the wrong address.  Ahhh!!   Thank you for your patience as they make their way to us!**

Sarah’s take on the color challenge with the PETALS ‘N POSIES and I LIKE YOU stamp sets along with the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set is just gorgeous!

Amber did a whole lot of mixing and matching of Reverse Confetti products on this card!!  How many can you spot?  Here’s the breakdown on what was used… PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set with the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts; BEAUTIFUL BANNERS stamp set and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts; ALL ABOUT YOU stamp set; SO STRIPEY stamp set; LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and finally, the tab from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set…

Seriously, every time I looked at this card I saw something new! Wow!

Stacey’s style is just so fun!  Love how she layered the colors from the March Color Challenge in the great card using GO TOGETHER from our Key Words Collection…

I’m loving this birthday card from Val using the WHOLE LOTTA DOTS and ALL ABOUT YOU stamp sets paired with the TAG ME and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts.

I don’t like taking a whole lot of time on the inside of cards, but it’s always nice to dress them up a little with some die cuts and a simple sentiment (shown here stamped on the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set-which is also used on the front of the card).

As I have mentioned, I was “thinking spring” when I designed these sets and this new set (and coordinating Confetti Cuts) is about as spring as it can get…eggs and chicks and bunnies, oh my!  And, don’t forget the Peeps!

Introducing CARTON CUTIES (which may just be my favorite RC set to date!)…

CartonCutiesProductGraphicSheet250

And, the coordinating CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts die set…

CartonCutiesConfettiCuts

My first project today is a tag that stars the darling chicks from the CARTON CUTIES set. I colored them with Copics and popped them into the cracked half egg (stamped and die cut).  The scallop edge on the top is cut from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts and then cut again using the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.

HeyChickieTag

I knew exactly what I wanted to create with the “you’re good peeps” sentiment…a Peeps on a stick project!

CartonCutiesPeeps

Detail of the tag…

CartonCutiesPeepsTag

To create this sweet lil’ Peeps on a stick project I skewered 3 pink Peeps and then placed a (food safe) cello bag over them.  I tied the bag with pink gingham ribbon and added the small tag (cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set).  I embellished the tag with a banner die cut (cut from the *new* BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts) stamped with the “you’re good peeps” sentiment and a bunny head head die cut (from the CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts die set).  Such a fun, cute and easy spring/Easter giftie!

. . . . .

Spring Break is just around the corner (it’s next week for us) and then we are in the home stretch of the school year, meaning it’s time to get that Teacher Appreciation and end of year giftie thinking cap on!  And, don’t forget those fun school days scrapbook pages, too!

Introducing, CLASS ACT

CAProductGraphicSheet250

And, the coordinating CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set…

ClassActConfettiCuts

When I design stamp sets and dies, I am not always just looking forward.  I want all of our products to be as compatible with each other as possible.  With that in mind, the rounded rectangle in the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set was made to be able to fit inside the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts scalloped rectangle die cut, like shown on this card…

ClassAct2

ClassAct2_detail

To create the focal panel, I first cut two rounded rectangles…one from the pink polka dot paper and one from white cardstock.  I then cut the apple from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set from the pink polka dot paper.  I layered the 2 sheets on top of each other and then centered the sentiment, stamped in navy dye ink.  Next, I popped up the pink polka dots panel and added the leaf (remember that as the flame from Wednesday’s project?) and the linen thread.  That panel was then added to the scalloped rectangle panel and adhered to the card base with two TAG ME Confetti Cuts large tags cut from navy cardstock.  I think that these would be great to duplicate in different colors and give to teachers as card sets.

My final project I am sharing with you today is a card featuring the CLASS ACT stamp and Confetti Cuts sets, as well as the *new* OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts set that I revealed on Wednesday.  I really had a lot of fun creating this card!  I started by stamping and die cutting two “sheets” of notebook paper and then added the alphabet to one. I embellished those panels with the stamped and die cut apple.  The quotation mark pattern paper was die cut with the perforation line and notebook edge from the OFFICE EDGES set.  My final touches were adding the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER strip on the left and the enamel dots (can’t seem to put those things away!).

ClassAct1

The double lined tab stamp set was designed to hold each of the sentiments included in this set.  Here I embossed it, and the “You’re a Class Act” sentiment in white on black cardstock and then attached it by stapling…which just happened to coordinate with the entire theme of the card.

. . . . .

There is so much more inspiration to see using all these stamps and dies that are releasing on Saturday, March 8th! 

Check out the Confetti Crew & Friends’ posts.

Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win!

Carton Cuties 

Carton Cuties is the must have Spring and Easter set that’s like no other ever created!  Fill up this egg carton with a variety of eggs or the bunnies and chick that are included, too.  What’s even more fun?…a matching Confetti Cuts die set!

Designed by Angelica Suarez

 Set of 15 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

Carton 2.4” x 1.9”

Chick 1” x .9”

Class Act

Class Act will be the set you reach for time and time again when in need of a fun card or project for that favorite teacher or class.  All three sentiments fit within the large outlined tab image, as well as on the notebook paper. Create lots of fresh and fun projects with the polka dot apple that will send you to the head of the class!  For an A+, be sure to pair this set with its matching Confetti Cuts die set!  It also pairs well with the Office Edges Confetti Cuts die set, too!

Set of 11 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

Notebook Paper 2.0” x 2.54”

 Apple 1.36” x 1.27”

CONFETTI CUTS: Carton Cuties

It doesn’t get much cuter than the Carton Cuties stamp set and the matching Confetti Cuts die set makes it super easy to cut out those images and create the perfect project!

Set of 6 wafer thin dies

 SIZE REFERENCE:

Carton 2.5” x 2”

Peep Head .75” x 1.18”

CONFETTI CUTS: Class Act

Go straight to the head of the class with projects made from the Class Act Confetti Cuts die set and coordinating Class Act stamp set (sold separately).  This set contains four dies…a rounded rectangle, tab, apple and leaf.  This rounded rectangle also fits perfectly within the scalloped rectangle of the previously released Love Note Confetti Cuts die set…just one way we like to make our products easy to mix and match.

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).
