WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on August 23, 2013

Hello and TGIF!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week!  I’ve seen a lot of kiddos’ first day of school pics on Facebook and we are gearing up for ours next week.  Supplies-check, first day of school outfit-check, to bed early-check.  I have to admit that I have be looking forward to school being back in session, but now that it is upon us I want a few more weeks of fun, sun and a little bit of doing nuthin’.  I’m sure that warm and fuzzy feeling will wear off the next time I hear, “Moooooooommmmmm, can I/will you? or he/she’s doing this, that or the other…”  Anyone else know this feeling?  Certainly, I am not alone here.

. . . . .

A couple of notes before I get started on WEEK IN REVERSE:

1. ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS is BACK IN STOCK!!

2. Don’t forget to upload your Reverse Confetti creations to the weekly link list for a chance to win the ENTIRE NEXT RELEASE.  Find it Fast link on the sidebar.

This week, the Confetti Crew pulled out all the stops on their Reverse Confetti creations!

I love Heather‘s fun design and how she mixed and matched these sets!

Savannah‘s sunshine-y card makes me smile! And, WOW!, she has perfected masking! The word sunshine was created by masking 3 words (sunny days, shopping and chocolate) together.

Hello, my friends!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  We certainly enjoyed ours here in the del Muro house.  Tony got in some much wanted boys time on the golf course while the kiddos and I hung out at home and took care of prepping for the  upcoming school year and cleaning up the house.  I also managed to get in a project for the next release.  To say that I am excited about our fall release would be a bit of an understatement.  Stay tuned for all the details about the September 8th release…it will be here before we know it!

A couple of inventory notes…

1. Peacock Pretties, I Like You and Whole Lotta Dots are low in stock .

2. Arrows ‘n Elements will be shipping from our manufacturer this week.  I will be updating the Facebook page, as well as sending out a newsletter when we have those back in stock.  I know there are a lot of you waiting on this set; thank you for your patience.

WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on August 16, 2013

Hello and Happy Friday!  One of the last Fridays of summer vacation…oh where, oh where has the time gone?  I’ll be savoring these last few days of summer before school gets back in session (which, by the way, I am ready for!).  I hope that you all do the same.

I have had several inquiries regarding ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS.   It has been re-ordered and should be here next week.  I will post on Facebook and send out a newsletter when it is back in stock.  Thank you for your patience…and for loving this set so much!

. . . . .

Well, being that it is Friday, it’s time to take a look back at what the Confetti Crew created this week.  Enjoy this WEEK IN REVERSE

I know I’ve said this before, but I just adore the “crazy cool” style that Savannah has!

Amy Kolling was just as colorful with this fun card!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Happy Hump Day!

What’s everyone been up to this week?  Are you getting inky with your Reverse Confetti stamps?  Be sure to link up on the weekly link list for a chance to win Reverse Confetti stamps!  Also, the August SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY is up.  Won’t you come play along with us?

<—FIND IT FAST links are always on the sidebar—

. . . . .

It’s time for another WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS.  I am loving this new segment here on the Reverse Confetti blog.

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.  Today we’re focusing on a cool color combo AND a fun technique, but 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.

First, the color combo.  I am absolutely hooked on creating with black, green, gray and pink!

The second part of this WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS post is about creating your own pattern paper using a fun technique with paint .

DICcard_detail

Before I get started on the details, I want to share a little about this card’s recipient.  I’m sending this card to my kiddos’ former babysitter that is off to her freshman year at college.  She’s sweet as pie, super fun and has a little edge to her…which is exactly how I wanted the details this card to come across.  To achieve that “edginess” I created my own pattern paper with paint.

Do you have a lot of little paint bottles from various projects?  I have a ton of these bottles of acrylic and patio paint and every now and then, they come in handy for a paper project like this.

Paint

The black paint was poured on a plastic plate.

TIP: I use clear plastic cocktail plates from the $1 store (8 plates = $1).  Since the paint tends to bleed through on paper plates, and I really don’t want to use my dinner plate these are perfect.  Re-usable or tossable!

I added the green paint, along with a little water to thin it out, to one of two dixie cups I grabbed from my kids’ bathroom…

PaintCups

The rim of the blue paper cup was dipped in the black paint and then stamped repeatedly on the white cardstock.  When I was happy with the amount of black circles that I had “stamped,” I used my heat tool to dry the paint quickly.  Of course, you could wait for it to dry, but who’s got time for that? *wink*

After the black paint was dry, I dipped the paintbrush into the watered down green paint and flicked/splattered (using my thumb against the brush) the paint onto the cardstock.  I’m pretty sure that just as much splattered paint was on my panel as was on my workspace.  Take note of that, especially if you are working with a paint that cannot be washed out.

The end result…

DIC_paintpanel

From here, I cut two strips and added them to my card.

Easy peasy and a little fun ‘n funky!

Hello and Happy Friday, my friends!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful creative week and is enjoying these last weeks of summer vacation.  I’ve been busy as a bee prepping for our fall sets to arrive and designed the winter sets.  You all are going to LOVE what’s in store for Reverse Confetti!  I may be just a little biased in saying so, but I really believe it’s true!  Just wait, you’ll see!

. . . . .

Being that is Friday (TGIF!), it’s time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we get to take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Hello and Happy Monday ‘Fetti Fans!

Did you enjoy your weekend?  Did you get any crafting done or take a dip in the pool, lake or ocean?

I am currently working on holiday stamp designs and was knee deep in all things Christmas over the weekend.  It’s a little hard to get in the spirit of decking the halls when the mercury is pushing 100 degrees.  My mojo was refreshed with a great time with friends and some time spent poolside on Sunday evening.  I’m ready for a great week ahead and hope you are, too!

Have fun and play along in those challenges with your Reverse Confetti stamps and then link up on the new link list  for a chance to be the next ‘Fetti Fave and win THE ENTIRE NEXT RELEASE!  I’ll be sharing some of my DTGD creations here on the blog later this week…and I hope you will, too!

Howdy and Happy Friday!

Are you enjoying the new segments here on the Reverse Confetti blog? Yesterday, I worked on a tutorial for next Wednesday’s Wednesday in the Works post.  Confetti Camera will be on hold for a couple of weeks since the new Sketch For You to Try and monthly hop fall on the next 2 Thursdays.  Stay tuned for more inspiration when we point the Confetti Camera on each of the Confetti Crew in the weeks following.  While I have seen Susan’s space in person, I am looking forward to taking a peek into the rest of the Confetti Crew’s spaces; aren’t you?

. . . . .

It’s Friday and that means it’s time for the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this past week.

Heather‘s dark based card with the pops of pink is just stunning!
