CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on August 07, 2014

Hello, Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

We have a super fun Confetti Camera here for you today!

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 ABC (anything but a card) projects.  Keep your eyes peeled for some fabulous ways to use your Reverse Confetti stamps!

Today on Confetti Camera we have a great video tutorial put together by the fun and talented, SARAH GOUGH

Today I’m sharing a sweet little basket made from the Tag Me Too Confetti Cuts as well as the Double Edge Scallop Border. Here’s a little tutorial on putting these together and getting even more use out of your fabulous Reverse Confetti dies!

. . . . .

The response to the FABULOUS FLAMINGO set has been…well, FABULOUS! We just received a large order of the stamps over the weekend and they are almost sold out.  The coordinating Confetti Cuts sets are sold out.  Both are on order and I will update the Facebook page and send a newsletter when our stock has been replenished again.  Thank you all for your support and patience!

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on June 24, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY and I have a super summer inspired card to share with you today…

DreamInColorFlowers

When I think of summer, I think of COLOR and what better sentiment to use (from DREAM IN COLOR) with a rainbow of blooms from PETALS ‘N POSIES.

To create this card, I took a strip of paper and stamped the various flowers in red, pink, orange, green and aqua.  I then added the flower centers and purple flowers/berries.  Once I had it all put together I thought that it was in need of a little dimension, so I stamped the large blooms again and cut them out using the coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die and popped them up using dimensional adhesive.

Hello and TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

expo

I hope you all have some fun weekend activities planned.  If you are local, be sure to stop by The Little Blue House booth at the Scrapbook Expo for a Reverse Confetti Make-n-Take on Saturday between 10-1.  See you there!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and time for Week in Reverse where we take a peek back at what the fabulous designers that make up the Confetti Crew have been up to with their Reverse Confetti stamps!

Heather knows how to rock clean and simple.  I love the details and textures used here.

PEACOCK PRETTIES, LOTS TO SAY

I just love Amy’s use of a variety of coloring mediums on her card.

DREAM IN COLOR, SO STRIPEY

Such a fun design and color combo from Lisa!

The new color challenge is live!  What will you make for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store?  Click on the graphic on the sidebar for all details and link list.  Here are some awesome samples to kick-start your creativity using this color palette.

I was amazed how many sets that Sarah used to create this fabulous card.  I love that it’s so easy to mix and match Reverse Confetti stamps (and, yes, we do that on purpose)!

COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, PEACOCK PRETTIES, PAPER CRANE, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts

Lisa card is just so…foxy! (sorry, had to)

FREIDA FOX, PAPER CRANE, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts

It’s amazing how differently people use this color palette.  I love the darker base of this card from Stacey…makes the light blue and cranberry just POP!

GO TOGETHER, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts

In contrast, Leigh’s lighter base is equally as powerful…and beautiful!

WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on October 04, 2013

WOW…Friday, already!?  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, but this week seemed to zooooom by!

I know that part of my weekend will be spent cheering for my alma mater, Arizona State University, who will be duking it out (here in Dallas) with Notre Dame.  Do I have tickets?…no (sniffle), but I’ll be cheering them on from the comforts of my living room sofa.  I’m hoping to get some crafty time in, too!

. . . . .

It’s time to take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew has created this week in our WEEK IN REVERSE.

Heather is just one of the designers that decided to use her Reverse Confetti stamps on a scrapbook page this week!  I just adore how this layout (the October SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY) and sentiment, along with the graphic background compliment the picture of her beautiful daughter with her face painted!

PEACOCK PRETTIES, I LIKE YOU

HeatherScrap

Val also did a scrapbook page.  I love all the elements and how she flipped the SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY to create this page featuring her son playing water polo.

ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS, LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS, COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS

ValScrap

This might just be one of my favorite cards from Amy Kolling!  I love all the colors and details and how stacked up all the images, dots and large sentiment.

SPOOKY CUTIES, SPOOKY SENTIMENTS, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

AmyK2

Amy also used the latest SFYTT on this card that is just so sweet!  It’s the perfect card to give to a loved one!

COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS

AmyK

Susan had a mind-share with Amy and came up with this fun card that also features 1-2-3.  Now, they’ve got me thinking I need to make one that says ABC!

COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS, FOREVER FALL, LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS

Susan

Amy Sheffer sure knows how to WOW with her cards and this one is no exception!  I love how the simple white sentiment panel stands out against all the fun details.

FOREVER FALL

I’m batty for  Dawn’s card using this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  I love how she stamped the fence multiple times  for a bold panel.

SPOOKY CUTIES, SPOOKY SENTIMENTS

Savannah knows how to put together some sweet treats!  If you missed the Confetti Camera post from yesterday, be sure you check it out!  I love her candy bag adorned with witch shoes here.

SPOOKY SENTIMENTS

Sav

Laurie’s bright and cheerful card put a huge smile on my face!  Love the use of the buttons as the rainbow and her sparkly and colorful “COUNT.”

COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS

Laurie

Lisa’s non-traditional rainbow colors are oh-so-fun paired with this sentiment.

COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS

LisaH

Lisa also made this spooky and sweet card featuring this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY.  The cauldron bubbles stamped repeatedly on the pattern behind the witch shoes is just one of the many awesome details on this card.

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on September 26, 2013

Howdy, Friends!

We’re glad that you are joining us for this week’s 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.  You’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration, as well as get to know each designer a little better through some interview questions that we have prepared.  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 until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member.

. . . . .

Before we jump into the CC post, just a quick reminder that we want to see YOUR Reverse Confetti creations!  Link ‘em up on Monday’s ‘Fetti Finds link list (new link list each Monday).  There’s a find-it-fast button over on the sidebar.  **For this link list only: ‘Fetti Finds will be announced Sunday and the ‘Fetti Fave will be announced Monday**

. . . . .

This week the Confetti Camera is zooming in on Confetti Crew member HEATHER PULVIRENTI!

Post Production Interview

What do you like best about this project?

My favorite thing about this card is the unexpected color scheme.  More often than not, cards/projects centered around a pumpkin theme are going to include colors that tend to have more of a fall vibe.  I like the pop of pink and green on navy!

What was your process on making this project? Did you have a starting point (color, inspiration, sketch)?

The only thing I had my heart set on when creating this card was the sentiment.  I love the “hello pumpkin” sentiment from the Forever Fall stamp set! The font is super cute, and I’m a sucker for the coordinating pumpkin.  I wanted the sentiment and pumpkin image to take center stage, so I opted for a very CAS design.

What inspiration can others take from this project?

This is a toughie! I would have to say if anything, don’t be afraid to step outside the box and try new color combos.  You never know, you might just be (pleasantly) surprised!

. . . . .

Describe/Share your stamping space.

HP Space

My craft room wears a lot of hats, it also functions as our office, extra storage and general catch-all.  We moved into our house 7 1/2 years ago, and always had the intention of doing something fun with the space.  Unfortunately, that has yet to happen! Invariably, something always comes up that needs our attention (like our surprise bathroom remodel), so that room has been a little neglected.  It’s the only room in our house that has yet to even be painted! Lol… So rather than blind everyone with the crazy amount of clutter and old white walls, I’m sharing a pic of my itty bitty stamping area. (Ha!)

Do you have to clean your desk before starting a new project?

I do normally try to put things away between projects.  With such a tiny amount of space, I can’t afford to give up any more real estate!

What is your must-have tool? Why do you like it so much?

Hmm… I think my favorite tool would probably have to be my heat gun.  I have been on a huge heat embossing kick lately, so a fully functioning heat gun is a must.

Do you always make A2 sized cards? If you deviate from the standard size, what favorite size to make?

No, not always. I also like to make 3 1/2 x 5 cards (today’s card), as well as 4 x 4 cards.  It helps break up the monotony.

What is your favorite RC project so far? Why?

My favorite so far would probably have to be this card:

Heather

It just makes me happy!

This card features PEACOCK PRETTIES, DREAM IN COLOR and WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

WEEK IN REVERSE will return next week.  Stay tuned to our FACEBOOK PAGE for some featured projects from this week.

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on September 03, 2013

There’s nothing like starting the week with a day off!  And, really “day off” is a bit of an exaggeration…I got a lot done yesterday!  It’s back to the real “grind” day and we are busy lil’ bees here at Reverse Confetti.  I *may* have mentioned that our next release is just around the corner.  You all (or as we say around here, “y’all”) are gonna LOVE the FIVE new sets that we will start sneak peeking on Thursday.  While I am so very excited for sneak peeks, I am also thrilled to be announcing a new Confetti Crew team member tomorrow!  I just know that you will adore her and her Reverse Confetti creations just as much as we do!

. . . . .

It’s Tuesday, which means TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

I was really inspired by Confetti Crew member Laurie and her card HERE when I made this card…

DreamInColor

To created the mottled dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, I colored them with 3 different color Tombow markers (purple, dark pink and a lighter pink) and then spritzed the colored stamped lightly with water.  Then, I barely tapped the stamp to the paper, which created the this look.  It’s a simple technique that can be done with a variety of backgrounds and/or images.

Detail shot…

DreamInColor_detail

The sentiment is from the DREAM IN COLOR set, which is part of our Key Words Collection where there is a “key word” that you can mix and match with a variety of sentiments to get the most use from one set.

Hello and Happy Monday!

It’s the first day of school here and I can’t believe that I have a second grader in the house.  Seriously, didn’t I just bring her home from the hospital yesterday?  Needless to say, it’s all a little bittersweet!  Although, I am happy that I will be finding a little more time to craft, create and, of course, design more stamps!  Right now, I am gearing up for our September release, which is happening in just less than two weeks.  Stay tuned for more info, sneak peeks AND an introduction to a new Confetti Crew member!

. . . . .

While Monday can be the most dreaded day of the week, we love it here at Reverse Confetti!  We get to recognize our customers and their awesome Reverse Confetti creations!

Drumroll, please!

The ‘Fetti Finds from last week’s link list are Taheerah Atchia and Sandy Allnock!
