By Jen del Muro
on October 07, 2015

Holiday Greetings, ‘Fetti Fans!

Welcome to the third and final day of our COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI.  Tonight at midnight EST we will be releasing 3 new stamp sets, 6 new Confetti Cuts die sets, a new *limited edition* set of Quick Card Panels and the new twine and pillow boxes.  Needless to say, I think this is a pretty incredible release!

As always, here is our release schedule…

ReadyForConfetti

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

One of my most favorite parts of Christmas is the decorating!  And, you can’t have Christmas decorations without lights, so in the spirit of making things bright let me introduce…

MERRY & BRIGHT

MerryBrightGraphic

MERRY & BRIGHT features 5 light bulbs with 4 sentiments and one with a filament.  The base of the bulb is separate so it is easily stamped in a neutral color.  And, of course, we have a coordinating Confetti Cuts die…

MerryBrightCCGraphic

. . . . .

I absolutely love creating with the MERRY & BRIGHT set!  It’s so easy to put together bold and beautiful holiday creations, like this card using a slightly non-traditional color palette and the new HOLLY Confetti Cuts die set…

DSC05821

On this 4.25″ square card I added the (open) DOUBLE SCALLOP GARLAND Confetti Cuts in white as a subtle detail.  This has easily become one of my “go-to” Confetti Cuts!

Detail shot…

. . . . .

My second project that I have to share with you today is both fun and practical.  Fun because it’s crafty and uses both new and previously released Reverse Confetti goodies and practical because the holiday are quickly approaching and this is a fun way to dress up little gifties and gift cards.

Here’s what I started with…

DSC05712

To the left is a little glassine gift sack that I picked up from Michaels.  To the right of it you see a light bulb stamped from the new MERRY & BRIGHT stamp set, 2 cuts from the LEAFY Confetti Cuts die set, a gold banner cut from the LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts die set, CAPPUCCINO TWINE (my favorite) and a black button.

Assembly line…

DSC05709

I layered all the details and attached them to the bags using a little clothespin.  Now I just need to add a gift card and these are all set to go!

The finished product…

OCTOBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By Jen del Muro
on October 01, 2015

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

Happy October and hooray for fall, although it hardly feels like it is upon us here in North Texas.  October pretty much marks the turn of the seasons…and you never know if you’re going to freeze or sweat on Halloween.

If you’ve been watching the MAKE IT WITH ME MONDAY scopes (via Periscope), you’ve heard me mention that we are having an October release.  We generally release every other month, but we have bumped up our Holiday Release to October 8th this year.  There are new stamps, new Confetti Cuts dies, new Quick Card Panels and MORE!  Sneak peeks start Monday, but you can WIN IT BEFORE YOU CAN BUY IT over on Facebook starting at 8am CST today!

Oct8Release

 . . . . .

Being that it’s the first of the month, it is time to introduce a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

OCT15_SFYTT

Here are all the details you need to know…

Before I get to all the wonderful inspiration that the Confetti Crew came up with using this sketch, let’s go over the details…

There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.

The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 29th. The SFYTT button is  posted on the sidebar.  Click on it to be taken to the current SFYTT post and link list.

Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!

Let’s get hoppin’ onto the projects for today!

If you were on Periscope with me yesterday afternoon, you got a sneak peek at the projects that I have to share with you today.   Here’s a little something to get you in the spirit of all things fall…

My first project today is a card featuring the new Fall Fun QUICK CARD PANELS along with the new TOO CUTE TO SPOOK stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts.  The cat is placed on a black cardstock SCALLOPED CIRCLE Confetti Cuts panel.

These bats are just too cute!  I have them flying around clouds cut from WEATHER IT TOGETHER Confetti Cuts.

. . . . .

This next project features the (previously released) TAGGED TOTE and GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die sets along with the new WALK BY FAITH stamp set and PUMPKIN PATCH stamps and Confetti Cuts die set…

DSC05669

I cut the black panel with the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die and then stamp and embossed the WALK BY FAITH sentiment.  I gave it a bit of a chalkboard look by sketching in the white outline and rubbing white pigment ink on the edges and over the embossing.

The pumpkin is cut from the PUMPKIN PATCH Confetti Cuts die set and then I added the leaves and stamped/cut swirlies and stem.  Inside is a bag of candy pumpkins…yum!

First, let’s introduce the new limited edition…

FALL FUN QUICK CARD PANELS

FallFunQCP_ProductImage

If you recognize any of the patterns, it’s because we’re listening to you about what you love!  We took some ‘Fetti Fan favorites and put a fall color twist on them.

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!

. . . . .

Illustrator, Dawn Machell, has been busy creating darling critters for Reverse Confetti and I think you are just going to ADORE this new lil’ friend!  Introducing…

TOO CUTE TO SPOOK

and the coordinating Confetti Cuts…

. . . . .

While this set definitely has Halloween written all over, I decided to go in a different direction for my first project for today…

DSC05676

Not only does this clean and simple card feature the new TOO CUTE TO SPOOK stamps and Confetti Cuts dies, I’ve also used the new…

THANKS TAG

ThanksTagCC_ProductImage

This four piece Confetti Cuts tag set features a tag base, rounded rectangle (to create frames, shakers and/or layers), as well as the word “THANKS” and a reinforcer circle.

On this tag (created with new Fall Fun QUICK CARD PANELS!), I used the rounded rectangle to cut out a window and create a frame from the polka dot panel.

DSC05629

For the word “THANKS,” I cut out three and layered them on top of each other to create some depth.  The balloons were borrowed from the previously released, MONKEY BUSINESS stamp set.  And, YES!, all of these sets have complementing images that can be used with each other on purpose…it’s just more fun that way!!

A couple of detail shots…

. . . . .

If you’ve been a blog reader of mine for a Halloween season, you *know* that I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE creating for Halloween!  Needless to say, I’ve had a blast creating Halloween projects with this set.

Here’s a treat bag that I did using TOO CUTE TO SPOOK stamps and Confetti Cuts dies along with the previously released FOLDED TAG and TASSEL Confetti Cuts…

I just love that stripey tissue paper…perfect for Halloween and the TASSEL Confetti Cuts die!

Can we all agree that you can’t go through fall without at least one piece of pie!?  What’s your favorite?  I love apple pie and pecan pie…yum!  And, to celebrate the upcoming season of pie, introducing…

EASY AS PIE

EasyAsPieS_ProductImage

And, a perfect lil’ pie Confetti Cuts die set to go with it…

EasyAsPieCC

I can’t wait to pass these out to my kiddos’ teachers…

DSC05549

I used the THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts and then added the EASY AS PIE sentiment and Confetti Cuts.  Do you see something else that is new to the Reverse Confetti product line up?  Introducing…

DOUBLE SCALLOP GARLAND

DoubleScallopGarlandCC_ProductImage

This Confetti Cuts die set features two scallop borders: one solid, one outline.

I’ve attached these tags to Little Debbie Apple Pies.  These are the perfect size…and are quite yummy heated up with a little ice cream (just sayin’).

And, at about $3 for a pack of 8, it was hard to beat!  Great lil’ gifties!
