WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on August 06, 2014

Hello and Happy Hump Day!

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 another fun and different way to use your Reverse Confetti Confetti Cuts dies…as stencils!

So, I think that I have said it before, but I will say it again…I am not a technique person.  The thought of the mess and the time and the mess is enough to send me over the edge.  I mentioned the mess, right?  So, when we got to chatting about embossing paste over this past weekend, you would think that I would check out of the conversation.  Nope.  I was actually intrigued.  I’ve seen lots of samples and loved them, so when we got to talking about how easy it was…and not all that messy…I thought that this was something that I could get into.  So, off I went and purchased a couple different embossing pastes.

paste

I got some stencils, too, but I decided to make my own for today’s project.   Yes…make my own.  Easy peasy.  I cut out the CHEVRON PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts die from heavyweight vellum.  Then, I placed it on a piece of pattern paper and taped it down with washi tape.

stencil

I applied the embossing paste and went down to fix dinner and came back up and viola…

(this pic shows it cut out using the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die)

SWAKdetail

Ok. so it is not perfect, but not bad for the first time trying a technique.  I decided to use it as a panel on a card…

SWAK2

The heart (in felt) and scalloped rectangle are from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  The tab cut from kraft cardstock is from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set and is stamped with a sentiment from CRUSHIN’.  The flag ended panels under the heart are cut from heavyweight vellum using the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die.

Detail shot…

SWAK1

I wouldn’t consider myself a technique person just yet, but I will admit that I really did enjoy this, especially since it was easy to use with a homemade Reverse Confetti stencil.

Howdy and TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans!

For those following our relocation…more of the same happening over here in the del Muro household…hurry up and wait.  Everyone needs a decision about this or that here and now, but on the flipside we are just sitting and waiting and trying to get ready to go.  I still have ants in my pants about not being able to pack up anything so I’m just sorting a few things and getting ready of the release…NEXT SATURDAY!  Getting inky has been able to take my mind off of the move a little…thank goodness!  More updates to come as the move date approaches (mid-March).  Until then, the focus is here…

Before we get to the WEEK IN REVERSE portion of this post, we need to get a drumroll going for this month’s COLOR CHALLENGE WINNER…

winner_color

Here’s Cathy’s card using the February colors: cranberry, light blue and gray along with the HAPPY HARBOR stamp set and TAG ME Confetti Cuts…

Cathy, please email info@reverseconfetti.com for your prize.

Thank you to everyone that played along.  The submissions were absolutely INCREDIBLE…as always.  It makes my heart swell to see all your Reverse Confetti creations!

It’s Friday and time for WEEK IN REVERSE, where we take a look back at what the most awesome design team, The Confetti Crew, has been up to this week.

Susan broke out her Copics and played with FREIDA FOX this week!  Isn’t she darling?  And, if you are wondering…we will soon be introducing you to a friend of hers!

I like card making, but I LOVE seeing Reverse Confetti stamps and Confetti Cuts dies being used in a variety of paper crafting project, like Leigh’s beautiful scrapbook page featuring SWEET THING and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.  You can also see Leigh on this week’s Confetti Camera post (Thursday, 2/27).

Another great ABC (anything but a card) project from Amber using SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, SWEET THING and WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS.

Sarah says she’s on a tag making kick…I think I’ve been on one of those for the last few years! It’s easy with the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set (and ARROW Confetti Cuts, too)!  Here she paired it with CRUSHIN’ and WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS for a very sweet giftie…

Pink+Orange+INNER ROCK STAR= awesome cards from Stacey and Heather!

Heather created part of her background with WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, too.

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3748/12688465995_b8b63605d4_b.jpg

As proven above, great minds think alike.  I love all the positive energy coming from the PAPER CRANE set!  Lisa, Susan and Amy all inked it up this week for wonderfully creative and original designs…

Susan’s card also uses WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS and the TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

Amy also added the TAG ME Confetti Cuts to her creation.

Amber also used PAPER CRANE this week.  Her creation features on of the other sentiments and a very cool layout!

Amy K.’s card is a cool collection of a variety of Reverse Confetti products including the Christmas(!!) set, BRING ON THE MERRY, INNER ROCK STAR and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

2.27.14

Amy S.’ GO TOGETHER card with those darling die cuts to match the oh-so-perfect sentiment makes me smile!

Val shares more than moolah on her blog.  You can check out her Pocket Tag tutorial using  HERE.  Such a fun card (and tag!) and she always WOWS me with how she combines her RC products.  On this card she used CRUSHIN’, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS, SWEET THING and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

See you tomorrow with a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!

Hello and Happy Thursday!

For those of you following along with my relocation updates…nothing terribly exciting of new.  Things went well on the inspection of our current home and we are awaiting the inspection on our to-be home.  I am getting excited and picked up some new things at Home Goods yesterday for our new home.  I’ll be sharing pictures of the new place as soon as we are there and settled.  I’ve become a pro at unpacking and making a house a home as soon as possible.  I can’t stand to have boxes laying around!

With all of the hustle and bustle of the move, you will see some of the Confetti Crew team members taking over posts here over the next several weeks.  I’ll be busy prepping for the move, as well as our March 8th release.

. . . . .

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.

. . . . .

Today the spotlight is on Confetti Crew member, AMY KOLLING

Here’s Amy’s fresh and fun Confetti Camera project using WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, CRUSHIN’, SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts and LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts…

2.13.14#3

Hi everyone!  I thought I’d show you a smaller than an A2 size card using the Sweet Treat Tent Confetti Cuts.  I love to get more use out of my dies and I especially like to use them in different ways!  The Sweet Treat Tent Die is such a versatile die…….I’ve used it on card fronts, as treat tents, and here as a card base!

 2.13.14#1

2.13.14#2

I started with a usual fold at the top, A2 size card base.  Placing my folded card just below the cutting line at the top and securing with Washi tape, I ran this through my Big Shot as a normal die.  When it comes out of the die, it makes for a sweet little “skinny” card!  Now, I cut my card the full length which left a tiny score line in my card front.  You can either trim your card down or simply cover this score line like I did here.  Either way works!  I then stamped the card front with Whole Lotta Hearts with pigment ink.  Since GOLD has become popular, I splattered some Color Shine in Gold across my card with a small paintbrush.

 2.13.14#4

Let’s talk about that foil paper……love this stuff.  I took several scrap pieces and placed them on the Sweet Treat Tent Die where I wanted them on my card front once cut and die cut.  I also die cut some Tag Me Dies and stamped a sentiment from Crushin’ in Delicata Gold Ink.  See that tiny gold ring around the tag hole?  Yep….Jen’s included a tag hole dies!  Lastly, I stamped an arrow stamp from Crushin’ randomly over my hearts in Delicata Gold Ink.

Time For a Card Tuesday + Winner Announced

By admin
on February 11, 2014

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

I write this as we just found out that we lost out on our first choice house in Katy, TX.  After a very long crazy house hunting weekend, we finally found “the one.”  After putting our best foot forward, we found out that we weren’t “the one” and we were just one of ELEVEN offers submitted within a 2 day period.  Lucky for the seller, I suppose.  I will now be able to relate to the tears of those people on HGTV…except, they always seem to be the winner in the end.  The good news is that we did find a different house that is a wonderful fit for our family and they accepted our offer.  Houston…here we come (in a few weeks)!

. . . . .

Thank you to everyone that hopped with us over the weekend!  Announcing the winner (randomly taken from Stacey’s blog post)…

Amy, please claim your prize by emailing info@reverseconfetti.com

. . . . .

It’s Tuesday and TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  I’ve been a little bit of a time crunch lately and I love how quickly and simply this card came together…

YouveGotMail

I started off by using a white base and adding (Crate Paper) pattern paper panel.  From there is was just a little bit of stamping and embellishing.  I overlapped two of the sentiments from the CRUSHIN’ set.  The black scallop panel was created using the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts (large scallop side used).  The banner from TAG ME Confetti Cuts was cut from bright pink cardstock and stamped with hearts from WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS in VersaMark.  I topped it off with an ARROW Confetti Cuts die cut and large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set.  I love the texture that the cork gives this card!  You know me and that I love some bling…black rhinestones with enamel dots were my finishing touch.

Do you have your Valentine’s projects completed?  Better get crackin’!  Cupid’s arrow hits on Friday!

Another crazy week gone by!  For those of you following our housing adventure…we have accepted an offer on our house (YAY!).  We are still on the hunt for one to move into, and we will see how that all pans out in the next few weeks.  We just backed out of one due to some (multiple) issues with the home.  I think it was God’s way of saying that it wasn’t the one for our happy family.  I look forward to being off of real estate web sites this weekend and having my nose buried in my sketch book prepping for upcoming releases!  I need the break and my mojo needs a boost!

It’s Friday and time for WEEK IN REVERSE, where we take a peek back on what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Here’s her darling Confetti Camera project using WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS (heart background), CRUSHIN’ (sentiment); SWEET TREAT TENT, LOVE NOTE, ARROW and TAG ME Confetti Cuts…

RC - Feb2014MomslunchUC

For my project today I created shortened Sweet Treat Tent candy treat containers for my mom’s critique group luncheon.  Die cuts don’t always have to be used as is and in this picture tutorial I will show you how I shortened them to create a smaller, more compact, treat holder to hold 4 little Dove chocolate morsels for her luncheon guests.

 1.2STT

2.TrimTab

3.Trim4inches

After die cutting, shortening, stamping, die cutting a window and adhering together, it’s time to decorate the front of the treat holder.  I used the same heart from Love Note to die cut another heart from patterned paper which I topped with a gold die cut Arrow.  I adhered both to the left of the die cut heart on the Sweet Treat Tent.  A stamped banner with a Valentine greeting from Crushin’ is adhered above the hearts and arrow before adding the cello wrapped candy inside and tying it all off with a big red grosgrain knotted bow.

These will look so cute with her Valentine themed table, I can’t wait to hear what a hit they were with her artist friends!

It has been a whirlwind of a week over here!  As I noted yesterday, change is upon our family…we are moving!  I’m going to take you on this journey with me.  I won’t have updates everyday, nor will I bore you with every minute detail,  but I’ll be keeping you in the loop and hope that you will share your experiences, too.  For those of you that are interested…we are moving to Houston, TX because of my hubby’s job.  Fortunately, I can do Reverse Confetti from just about anywhere, so nothing is changing (other than location) here.

So, as of today, we in contract to purchase a home in Houston.  I am a bit nervous as the inspection report came back with a few (big) red flags.  This was to be expected, as we are purchasing a home that is a little older.  Hopefully, we can come to an agreement on what needs to be done.  I’ll know more next week when we have area specialists review the inspection report and the home.  Wish us luck!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and time for WEEK IN REVERSE! The Confetti Crew has been busy this week creating cards and projects that are sure to inspire!

Val is so super clever!  I love this magnetic board to hold dies so they don’t get lost in the paper crafty craziness that I know happens on everyone’s desks!
