COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: Leaping Lions and Pineapples Aplenty

By Jen del Muro
on April 05, 2015

Greetings and Happy Easter, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s DAY ONE of our sneak peeks, or as we like to call them…THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  On April 8th we are release 5 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts die sets and a new *limited edition* set of QUICK CARD PANELS!

Are you wondering why in the world we are starting our Countdown to Confetti on Easter Sunday?  Well, we always kick off our sneak peeks on the 5th and since this is not a physical event we chose to go ahead and keep truckin’ along like we always do.

ConfettiCountdown

Just a note…all of our releases will happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month.  We generally release new product every other month.  This is a special release, as April is usually a non-release month for us. We’ll still be hopping on the 8th, whether there is a release or not.  Just remember, “Eight is Great!”

. . . . .

Don’t forget to leave a comment here and on each sneak peek post this week for a chance to win!

In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion (starting at 9am EST today).  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic pinned to the top of our feed…

NextRelease

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on April 7th will be randomly chosen to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Winners for both the blog comments and Facebook comments will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog as well as on Facebook.

. . . . .

Alright, ‘Fetti Fans, you know the drill…grab that cuppa, sit back and enjoy all the Confetti Creativity we have for you today!

. . . . .

Before I dive right into all the projects I have to share with you today, I just wanted to tell you a little bit about this special release.  As you know, April is usually one of our non-release months.  So, why have a release on a non-release month?  At CHA in January I had so much fun seeing all the creativity, trends and spirit of this industry.  There’s something about being surrounded by creative people, I guess!  It really helped my ideas flow and pretty soon my sketchbook was overflowing for ideas for (a few) upcoming releases.  So here we are, on Easter Sunday, kicking off a special Countdown to Confetti for our April release.  A couple of the Confetti Crew Design Team members have hailed this as “the best release ever.”  I hope you think so, too!

. . . . .

First, I’d like to introduce the new *limited edition*

Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANELS

PinaColadaQCP_April15ProductGraphic

QUICK CARD PANELS are limited edition premium heavyweight cardstock panels measuring 3.25″ x 4.5″.  Each package contains 2 of each 8 printed design.  They are designed for A2 card making, but you can easily use them on all of your paper crafting projects!  We will have a new set of QUICK CARD PANELS with each release. Grab them while you can, because once they’re gone, they’re gone!

You’ll see the new limited edition QUICK CARD PANELS used on a variety of projects from the Confetti Crew.  We can’t wait to see how you will use them on your creations!

. . . . .

One of prominent themes that I noticed at CHA this year was party and DIY fun!  Lots of banners and decor ideas swirled in my head and soon these 2 new Confetti Cuts die sets were born…

TASSEL Confetti Cuts

TasselCCProductGraphic

LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts

LayeredBannerDuo

And then, I made this…

Banner1

Detail shot of the TASSEL Confetti Cuts on each end…

Banner1Tassle

The TASSEL Confetti Cuts die is best used with tissue paper.  I took one sheet and folded it several times and then ran the die through my Big Shot. I then folded it over the piece of string the banner is strung on and “fluffed” it up. To secure it over the string, there is a piece of baker’s twine wrapped and tied around the top of the die cut (below where it is folded over string).

The LAYERED BANNER DUO features 2 different shapes of banners: rectangles and triangles.  As the title of the set suggest, you can layer these.  You can also use the smaller shape to cut out the center of the larger coordinating shape, creating a frame, like I did with the white panels here…

Banner1Layers

Also used on this banner are the previously released CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS and LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die sets.  The letters are foam letter stickers.

. . . . .

Have you noticed that pineapples seem to be popping up everywhere these days?  It’s a fresh and fun trend and I couldn’t resist turning them into stamps and Confetti Cuts dies!

Introducing…

PINEAPPLES APLENTY

PineapplesAplentyProductGraphic

and the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

PineapplesAplentyCCProductGraphic

My first card today features the new PINEAPPLES APLENTY stamp and Confetti Cuts die set, as well as the new Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANELS (and another  Confetti Cuts die set that I will introduce in just a moment).

Pineapples1card

The PINEAPPLES APLENTY Confetti Cuts die set features a full pineapple and a separate crown for layering.  Here’s a shot of the layered crown, along with the green flag ended panels cut from the new LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts die set…

Pineapples1card_detail2

The pineapple QUICK CARD PANEL and kraft panels (stamped with WHOLE LOTTA DOTS) are both cut from the new…

SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts

ShakersNFramesCCProductGraphic

I absolutely LOVE this Confetti Cuts die set.  It’s great for layering, like I did here.  And, as it’s name suggests, it’s perfect for making shakers and frames (I’ll get to that a little later in this post).

One last detail shot of this card…

Pineapples1card_detail1

. . . . .

My next card is a lot more clean and simple (CAS) and also features the new PINEAPPLES APLENTY stamp and dies…

CASPineapples1

The textured white layer was created using embossing paste and stencil.  I’m kind of wishing that I would have thought to make my own on this card, too…more on that later in this post.

Again, I layered the crown.  I also added twine and a sequin for a fun little added detail…

CASPineapples1_detail

Here’s one more detail shot of this card.  I just love this sentiment!

CASPineapples1_detail2

. . . . .

I am so stinkin’ excited about this release!  Can you believe I even have  a couple of more introductions for today!?!

First up is a great new addition to create awesome detail your paper crafting projects.

GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts

GeometricBackgroundProductGraphic

This Confetti Cuts die is smaller than A2 size making it perfect for layering.  It’s also great on it’s own or as a stencil, as hinted to above.

To create a stencil from the GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die, simply cut it from acetate and use with embossing paste.  I used translucent embossing paste on a piece of pattern paper with my homemade GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts stencil here…

DIYstencil

You’ll see how I used it on my card below…after a couple of more introductions!

Joining their puppy and birdie friends, I introduce to you…

LEAPING LIONS

LeapingLionsProductGraphic

Does it get any cuter?  I love the lions in this set and you can really make them  your own with the added tummy, face and tail detail stamps that are included.

And the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

LeapingLionsCCProductGraphic

Here’s my card using these cuties along with the paper shown above…

LL_Card

I really wish you could reach in your computer and touch this card!…lots of fun textures happening!

Here’s a shot of all the added details, including the banner and lion (check out the stripes and polka dots he’s “wearing”).

LL_Card_detail

. . . . .

One last card and then I’m sending you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew did with all these new goodies being introduced today!

This card also features the new LEAPING LIONS stamp and Confetti Cuts dies.  I’ve made a shaker using the new SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set.  In addition, I have also used the scalloped rectangle banner, 2 of them actually, from the new LAYERED BANNER DUO as a panel…

LLCard2

For the pink banners above the lions, I cut out the banner from the LEAPING LIONS Confetti Cuts die set, but did not stamp the outline stamp on it.  Instead, I just used the lined detail.  I love the look of this!

LLCard2Detail

Inside the shaker, I used the confetti that comes with in the SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set along with some itsy bitsy sequins.

LLCard2Detail1

. . . . .

That’s all I have for today, but all of the Confetti Crew and ‘Fetti Friends are sharing their creations with you, too.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By Jen del Muro
on March 25, 2015

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

We have a very special WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS for you today!

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, Confetti Crew member Sarah Gough, has an awesome video to share about how she uses some of her favorite Confetti Cuts dies.

I just love the new DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts – it’s such a fun border, and two sizes for the price of one die?…genius! Anything that saves money AND storage space is a winner in my book!

Not only can you cut this border in half to use either the large or small scallops, but in this video I show you how I like to utilize both sides of the Double Edge Wonky Scallop Border at once to create a unique layered border piece!

More detail pics of the sweet bee from THE BUZZ stamp set and coordinating Confetti Cuts…

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By Jen del Muro
on March 24, 2015

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Tuesday!

I hope that you all aren’t buried by the spring snow that I keep seeing all over my Facebook and Instagram feeds.  Mother Nature gave us so much rain last week, but now we are enjoying perfectly sunny days.  It’s only a matter of time before it becomes unbearably muggy, so we’ve been taking it in while the taking is good!

I’m glad I’ve had some indoor creating time, too!  I’m for some more of that this week (key word: hoping).  If anyone sees my mojo out there, go ahead and send it back my way.   It seems that it took off sometime yesterday morning and hasn’t been seen since.  Fortunately, I was able to create the TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY card for this post before it decided to go on hiatus.

I had fun with my Distress Inks with Heidi Swapp Color Shine here to create creatively colored Easter eggs (cut from the MORE THAN JELLYBEANS Confetti Cuts)…

EasterEggs

The grass was created with the new DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.  Since it’s a double sided die there is is seem between the bottom of the grass and the blades of grass that I (oh-so-creatively) “hid” with the sentiment (from Carton Cuties).  *wink*

EasterEggs1

I layered two suns cut from the new SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set and topped them off with a sequin and rhinestone combo.  The card seemed to need a little bling here and that tied in perfectly to the golden splashes on the eggs.

EasterEggs2

These eggs remind me of the ones that my lil’ guy makes when he can’t decide which color to dye his egg.  Well, except for the fact that a few of his end up just plain brown because of color indecision.  Any other mom that can relate to this?

CONFETTI CAMERA

By Jen del Muro
on March 12, 2015

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Thursday!

It’s time for CONFETTI CAMERA!

ConfettiCameraRCblog

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 cards completed inside and out 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 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.

Today on Confetti Camera is the so very talented and sweet, SARAH GOUGH

SarahIntroPic

Hi, Sarah here. I love to finish the inside of my cards, so this round of Confetti Camera was a blast! For my card today I’ve used the SPRING FLING QUICK CARD PANELS for a bright and fast Easter card.

 concameraSarahGough (1)

To create the scene on the front of my card, I cut clouds with the SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts, embossing them with a dotted folder. The bunny was layered in between two DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die to stand in for grass. The Quick Card Panel already featured a gorgeous sun, so I added a DOUBLE BANNER GARLAND Confetti Cuts die.

 concameraSarahGough (2)

concameraSarahGough (4)

Inside the card I thought one of the lined SPRING FLING QUICK CARD PANELS would make a perfect layer for a handwritten message. I used this one upside down, I thought the banners looked great behind the egg sentiment from MORE THAN JELLYBEANS! Of course I had to use the other DOUBLE BANNER GARLAND Confetti Cuts die because it’s just too cute to waste!

I have a few project to share with you today and then I’m sending you off on your way to see what the Confetti Crew and our ‘Fetti Friends have in store for you.

My first project today is one of my favorites from this release…

MasonJarLid

I started with a mason jar lid and then filled it with green crinkle paper (actually, it was white and a sprayed it green).  I then added the “Hello Spring” egg and a bunny cut from felt from MORE THAN JELLYBEANS and the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.  The small egg was created from the CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts die set and adorned with a flower from the new THE TWEET LIFE Confetti Cuts die set.

The DOUBLE BANNER GARLAND is “strung” between a kabob stick that I cut in half and hot glued to the mason jar lid.

MasonJarLid1

This project came together rather quickly and easily (minus the spraying of the white crinkle paper *wink).  I think these would be darling as part of a place setting for a Spring or Easter brunch!

. . . . .

My next project today features the new SHINE BRIGHT set, SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set and SPRING FLING Quick Card Panels.

YouAreMySunshine

On this card I layered the sun from the SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set on top of the sun on the new SPRING FLING Quick Card Panels.  The words on the sentiment are colored in a gradient with Copic markers.  I can’t wait to slip this card in my daughter’s backpack for her to find.

. . . . .

My final card today features THE BUZZ stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts dies, along with the new DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts.

BeeDay1

The main image panel is the rounded rectangle from the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set.

The bee is colored with Copics and then adhered with dimensional adhesive to the end of the dashed “trail.”

Detail shot of the bee (wings are double cut and layered for added dimension)…

Introducing…

SHINE BRIGHT

ShineBrightProductGraphic

Mix and match these words/sentiments for lots of great possibilities!

These stamps coordinate with the SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set that I revealed on Day One…

SunNCloudsCCProductGraphic

I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with this set and mixing and matching the sentiments and pairing them with new Confetti Cuts dies.

hellosunshine

For this card I stamped the sentiment on the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set (previously released) and adhered it to the scalloped rectangle from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set (also previously released).

To embellish, I added the sun from the new SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set with a few yellow enamel dots and used both of the banners from the new DOUBLE BANNER GARLAND Confetti Cuts.

The words on the stamped image are colored in with Copics.

Detail shots…

I told you that I didn’t think this die set would be leaving my desk anytime soon!  *wink*

So far in this release we have birds and bunnies.  It’s time to throw bees into the mix, too! Birds and bunnies and bees…OH MY!

Introducing…

THE BUZZ

TheBuzzProductGraphic

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

TheBuzzCC_ProductGraphic

My first project today using THE BUZZ stamp and Confetti Cuts die is this cute lil’ tag…

BuzzTag

To create this, I cut out the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die and then stamped the “You Are So Bee-You-Tiful” sentiment on it.

I then cut out another TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts tag from gray and white polka dot paper and used the bottom portion to layer.  From there, I added a yellow strip cut with the new DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.

DoubleEdgeWonkyScallopBorderCCProductGraphic

The bees are stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black ink and then colored with Copics and then popped up on dimensional adhesive.  The small bee is adhered to the tag at the end of his “trail” (one of 2 different ones included in the set).

BuzzTag1

. . . . .

My second project using this fun stamp and Confetti Cuts die set is this card that also features the new SPRING FLING QUICK CARD PANELS

SweetCard

SpringFlingQCPProductGraphic

For this sweet bee, I layered the wings for added dimension.  It’s hard to tell in the photo (thank you Mother Nature for terrible lighting), but I also did add a little bit of glitter to the wings, as well…

SweetCard2

The beehive is also colored with Copics and adhered with dimensional adhesive.

Alright, it’s time to grab that cuppa, sit back and enjoy all the Confetti creativity we have for you today!

. . . . .

First, I’d like to introduce you to the new *limited edition*

SPRING FLING QUICK CARD PANELS!

SpringFlingQCPProductGraphic

 QUICK CARD PANELS are limited edition premium heavyweight cardstock panels measuring 3.25″ x 4.5″.  Each package contains 2 of each 8 printed design.  They are designed for A2 card making, but you can easily use them on all of your paper crafting projects!  We will have a new set of QUICK CARD PANELS with each release. Grab them while you can, because once they’re gone, they’re gone!

You’ll see the new limited edition QUICK CARD PANELS used on a variety of projects from the Confetti Crew.  We can’t wait to see how you will use them on your creations!

. . . . .

The first stamp set that we are revealing today is from the same line as our HEART TO HEART set from our January release and I think you’re gonna love it just as much!

Introducing…

MORE THAN JELLYBEANS

MoreThanJellybeansProductGraphic

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

MoreThanJellyBeansCC_ProductGraphic

My first project today pairs the new SPRING FLING QUICK CARD PANELS along with these stamps and dies…

HappySpringCard

For this card, I used the sunshine and grass scene and simply added the stamped and die cut egg and some green twine.  The heart was added at the last minute for a little more dimension (cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set).

Detail shot…

HappySpringCard1

Notice anything else that might be part of the new release on this card?

Introducing…

The DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die (say that 3 times fast! *wink*)…

DoubleEdgeWonkyScallopBorderCCProductGraphic

This die is really TWO DIES IN ONE!  It features the large wonky scallops on one side and a smaller scale on the other side.  Like its cousin, the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die, simply cut off the side that you are not using or tuck in under the panel that  you are layering.  You can also fold it over for added detail!

. . . . .

My next card today features even more fun new products being released on MARCH 8th!

HappyBunnyDayCard1

Here, I used the “Happy Bunny Day” image from MORE THAN JELLYBEANS and cut him (her?) out with the coordinating bunny Confetti Cuts die.  I then adhered the bunny to the pattern paper circle cut from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set (previously released) and layered with grass I created by snipping blades on the DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.

This card also features a new product we are revealing today…

The DOUBLE BANNER GARLAND Confetti Cuts die set!

DoubleBannerGarland

I’m pretty sure that this Confetti Cuts die set is never going to leave my desk! It’s so much fun to play with!  In this set there are 2 banner garland dies.  One is “open,” in center and the other solid.  It’s perfect for layering, like I did on this card or each can be used on their own.

Also on this card are the clouds from the new…

SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set!

SunNCloudsCCProductGraphic

Detail shot…

HappyBunnyDayCard

. . . . .

Yep, there’s more! YAY!

The puppies from the PUPPY LOVE stamp set needed some friends…or something to bark and chase after.  Either way, we think this set is the perfect addition to this line!

Introducing…

THE TWEET LIFE

TheTweetLifeProductGraphic

And, the coordinating THE TWEET LIFE Confetti Cuts die set…

TheTweetLifeCC_ProductGraphic

. . . . .

This next card features one of THE TWEET LIFE birdies colored with the “no line stamping” technique where you stamp the image in a light color and then color it in with markers or watercolors, like I did here…

TweetCard

I also stamped the tummy with lined image from the set and then ran my watercolor brush over it to soften the lines.  To create a little more of a scene for the image, I watercolored grass under the birdie and added the clouds from the new SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shots…

. . . . .

Next up is a cute lil’ treat container I created with our TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set (previously released) and the new THE TWEET LIFE stamps and Confetti Cuts…

TweetTote1

This birdie was stamped and then I paper pieced her body, adding an extra layer for wings and added the stamped polka dot tummy.

TweetTote

The small flower was cut from several layers of a coffee filter and topped with the rhinestone.

TweetTote2What’s inside the tote?

Two M&M snack size packs.  It was designed to fit those, as well as lots of other snack size/small goodies!

. . . . .

One last project for today and then I am sending you on your way to see all of the creations that the Confetti Crew put together using these fabulous new release products!

Maybe it’s just me, but when I have a project in my head it rarely comes out with how I originally envisioned.  Sometimes it develops into something much greater, sometimes my trash can gets full of failed attempts.

Well, this one turned out just like it was in my head.  *fist pump*

Birdcage2

Yep, I made my own mini birdcage!

The base of the cage is a lid to a mason jar and then I added the cage, which is thin strips of kraft cardstock stacked on top of each other and bradded together on one end.  I spread out the strips and adhered them to the jar lid.  From there I embellished the bottom with doilies, patterned paper and Easter “grass” and embellished the top with a painted white wood ball (to cover the brad), ribbon, button with twine and a sentiment from THE TWEET LIFE stamp set.

The Copic colored birdie is sitting on a wood skewer that I cut down and attached to the birdcage by punching hole in two of the cage strips.
