WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on June 20, 2014

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

What a fun week it has been here in the del Muro house!  The kids had VBS all week, which I have to admit was awesome for me.  I had a few extra hours a day to prep for the upcoming release.  I’m doing a lot of prep ahead of time because we are having a family fun week next week.  It’s time to turn of the computers, phones, etc. and focus on what is most important in everyone’s life: family.

Friday brings the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek back at what the super talented Confetti Crew has been up to!

I love that Laurie combined the anchor from HAPPY HARBOR with the sentiment from HERE WE GO.  The stripes on top (from SO STRIPEY) are great for the theme and the finishing touch of the heart strip (LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts) is perfection!

Sometimes having little color makes for big impact, like shown here on Amy Sheffer’s card using TAG ME Confetti Cuts and the WINNING stamp set…

Heather is the master with PEACOCK PRETTIES!  I love the large feather paired with the sentiment from LOTS TO SAY

Sarah had fun with this month’s color challenge and FREIDA FOX

I love this color combo on Lisa’s card using the WINNING STAMP set paired with the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set…

Here’s another one from Lisa featuring her fun and creative style along with HERE WE GO, HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts and DOIN’ THE WAVE

Reverse Confetti + scrapping + altered art + Amber Hight = WOWZAS

Kathy created this fabulous card using WINNING and OH MY STARS

Leigh cleverly created 2 pattern papers (card base and pattern strip) to create this gorgeous card using PETALS ‘N POSIES and LOTS TO SAY

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on June 18, 2014

Happy Hump Day…the weekend is now in sight!  Do you have fun plans?  I’ll be burying myself in the studio in preparation for the JULY 8th release.  Mark you calendars as this release is gonna knock your socks off!

. . . . .

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

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS? It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  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, I’m focusing on our current color challenge (yes, again…I LOVE IT and you should play along!).

Color challenges are such a great way to kick start your mojo.  Be inspired by the colors and let them lead the (creative) way!

Here’s this month’s color palette once again.  You can click on the pic to go to the post with the link list to upload your project for a chance to win!

June14ColorChallenge

A few months ago I got a new camera (thank you Target clearance!) and I’ve been playing around with different photography techniques.  I did some research and took some tips from a few sources to change the look of my photo set up.  I love the results and this might just be one of my favorite cards I have done with Reverse Confetti…

LifeIsAnAdventure

To create this card…

I started with a A2 card base.  For anyone wondering, I do not buy my bases.  Simply, it’s a piece of white cardstock cut in half and then folded.

I then cut a panel 1/4″ smaller on each side.  On this panel I added the large star strips from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set and sewed across each of them.

Here’s what the back of the panel looked like when I was done sewing and tucking the remaining thread on the back (I didn’t want to just snip off the ends)…

LifeIsAnAdventure_Back

From there,  stamped the sentiment, plane trail and added the plane from HERE WE GO (cut from the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set, HERE WE GO).

Next, I added the stars with rhinestones popped up on dimensional adhesive.

Finally, I rounded the corners of the card base and large panel and adhered the large panel to the card base with dimensional adhesive.

Finally? Wait…”Something’s missing!” I thought.

The kraft strips were a complete afterthought, but I love what they brought to this project.  Something so simple and it was such a great finishing touch!

A shot of the dimension of this card…

TIME FOR A CARD (OR THREE TAGS) TUESDAY

By admin
on June 17, 2014

Happy Tuesday ‘Fetti Fans!

On Tuesday, I usually have a card for the TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY post, but I’m mixing it up a little and today I have 3 coordinating tags to share with you.

These 3 tags all use this month’s COLOR CHALLENGE that was introduced yesterday.  I hope that you will play along with this fabulous color palette!

Click on image for more details…

June14ColorChallenge

Here’s what I came up with using this fun and fresh color combo…

ColorTags

To create these tags, I started with a white tag cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.  I also cut tags from yellow cardstock and used the bottom inch of those on top of the white tag bases.  I also used the yellow on the enforcer ring at the top of the tag.  The banner strip in the center of the tag is cut from aqua cardstock with the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set and then stamped and embossed with the thick stripes from the SO STRIPEY stamp set.  I love the subtle texture that this embossing brings to these tags.  Each of the tags is stamped with the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from LOTS TO SAY and then I embellished each one differently.

The first one has an apple and leaf on it from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set.  I cut 2 apples and popped one up for added dimension.  (I actually did that on all the tags with their respective die cut embellishments).

ColorTags2

This tag has the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set, along with some red rhinestones…

ColorTags1

I saved my favorite for last.  I just love this tag with the stars from OH MY STARS.  When creating these tags, I had 3 people in mind: a teacher (apple), my daughter (heart with bling) and my son who lives and breathes stars, stripes and superheroes (just like this tag)…

MAY COLOR CHALLENGE

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

The weekend is *this* close!  I’m capping off a long week by volunteering at my son’s Pre-K field day this morning.  (eek!)  Later, I hope to find myself in the studio today to wrap up some awesome projects I have started.  Crossing my fingers that they will turn out just like they are in my head.  (eek…again!)

. . . . .

Today, I am so super excited to bring you the MAY COLOR CHALLENGE.  For those of you that are new to Reverse Confetti, or if you haven’t participated before, here are the details that you want to know…

May14ColorChallenge

I love how these colors look against the kraft neutral base…

Color

To created this banner, I used the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die and cut out one from dark pink and one from orange.  I then trimmed off the small scallop side and made banner pieces by cutting across in the middle of the scallops.  I added the hearts from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set in light pink to complete all of the colors in the challenge.

While I loved the colors with the kraft, it needed a pop of white.  I cut a large tag from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set, trimmed off the top and sewed it to the top edge of the card.  Under the tag, I stamped “birthday wishes” from the SWEET THING stamp set.  I finished it all off by layering clear sequins, gold sequins and dark pink rhinestones (I guess I really like the bling!).

For my color challenge card, I reached for the set PAPER CRANE

Color

I love that origami images are trending within the paper crafting industry!  The PAPER CRANE set features, you guessed it, a paper crane along with several geometric patterns and sentiments.  I embossed the solid triangles on the bottom and then stamped the outlined triangles in white pigment.  I mimicked the triangles with the zig-zag stitching on the center right of the card, as well as the triangles embossed on the main image panel.

WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
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.
