WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on January 14, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Welcome to a very special edition of WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!  Confetti Crew member, Amy Sheffer has a few fabulous creations to share with you!

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.

. . . . .

Hello, Reverse Confetti friends, it’s Amy here today with some cute swivel-flap Valentine riddles. As soon as I saw the square tag, it reminded me of this little swivel cover on my bed post that covers up a bolt hole. To access the bolt, just rotate the cover. Inspired by that, I thought I’d try making some sort of project where the tag rotates and underneath is a surprise. First, I thought about having the tag cover a circle window to a treat box. But then lift-the-flap books came to mind, and I knew some punny Valentine riddles would be perfect! I looked up lots and lots of Valentine riddles, keeping Reverse Confetti products in mind, and came up with quite a few ideas using various images and sentiments, plus some computer-generated text. I’m showing four of those ideas today.

First, a look at all four Valentines closed, where you can see the riddles:

RC_WIW0114_valentinequartet

And here they are with the tag rotated out of the way to reveal the answers:

RC_WIW0114_valentinequartetopen

I started all four Valentines with the large rounded rectangle from DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts. Each riddle and answer is printed and/or stamped on a SQUARE TAG and tied onto the rounded rectangle. I kept the same color scheme for all four, embellishing each with a white embossed row of dots from I LIKE YOU, a row of hearts from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, a strip with a stamped XOXOXO from CRUSHIN’, and a “Happy Valentine’s Day” sentiment from PUPPY LOVE. The riddles are all done with computer-generated text, then stamped with dotted lines from ROUNDABOUT.

Bat Valentine:

The bats are from SPOOKY CUTIES. Inside, I stamped Batty for You from SPOOKY SENTIMENTS, the word “I’M” from SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS, and another bat from SPOOKY CUTIES.

 RC_WIW0114_valentine1A

RC_WIW0114_valentine1B

Envelope Valentine:

The envelope and postal stripes are from NORTH POLE WISHES. Inside is computer generated text die-cut into a scalloped circle using a die from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS, and a trio of hearts from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts

 RC_WIW0114_valentine2A

RC_WIW0114_valentine2B

Whale Valentine:

The whale is from HAPPY HARBOR. Inside I stamped “i love you a” from BE A BARISTA onto pink card stock, heat embossed in white, and die-cut into a scalloped circle using CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts. The red heart is die-cut using HEART TO HEART Confetti Cuts, and the word “ton” is done by combining individual letters from SPOOKY SENTIMENTS.

 RC_WIW0114_valentine3A

Pink Car Valentine:

The car is from HERE WE GO. Inside is computer generated text, another scalloped circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS, a heart die-cut from PUPPY LOVE and a smaller heart die-cut from LOVE NOTE.

 RC_WIW0114_valentine4A

RC_WIW0114_valentine4B

It’s fun to look at stamps and sentiments you already have, mixing, matching, combining in new ways! Here are a few other ideas:

  • the fish from HAPPY HARBOR + o-fish-al sentiment from SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS.
  • the fish from HAPPY HARBOR + hugs and fishes (use stamps from I LIKE YOU, making the word “fishes” from individual letters)
  • the plane from HERE WE GO + “it’s plane to see” on the top tag, and “you’re the Valentine for me” underneath
  • one of the sweet poochies from PUPPY LOVE + the “I Woof You” sentiment, also in PUPPY LOVE
  • a Valentine-themed donut with heart sprinkles + “donut you know” on the outside, and “you’re the best” on the inside, all from DONUT YOU KNOW
  • the acorn from SAMMY SQUIRREL or FOREVER FALL + “What did the squirrel say to his true love on Valentines Day?” on the outside and “I’m nuts about you” underneath
  • the cat from SPOOKY CUTIES + “you’re purr-fect for me, Valentine”

I’d love to hear your ideas as well! Thanks for joining me today!

Hello there, ‘Fetti Fans!

Do you have your badge?  Get it HERE.

Fetti Fan Badge

. . . . .

The weekend is in view!  Do you have anything fun planned?  We are having a get together with another family for some Halloween fun.  I’m looking forward to preparing/eating Halloween themed foods and letting the kids make Zombie Goo (slime).  I’ll post pics of the good times next week.

Any other pics you want to see?…like, maybe a super duper sneak peek of the November release?  Hmmm… (wink).

. . . . .

I love Thursdays here on the Reverse Confetti blog!  Why?  Because it’s 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.

3) For this round we have been focusing on ABC (anything but a card) project.  Prepare to be inspired!

Today on Confetti Camera we have the ridiculously talented (and just as sweet), LAURIE SCHMIDLIN

Hi Confetti fans! Laurie here to share a couple of fun Fall ABC Projects (Anything But a Card/Tag)!

Having a lot of kids means having a lot of cards and gifts to give around the Holidays! With Halloween and Thanksgiving approaching quickly, I thought I had better get started on those! Two of my sons go to a small rural school which has only a handful of students in it. I like to give out small gifts this time of year, but because I still have a toddler to tend to, I need something that I can mass produce in a short amount of time. This first box is one that I will be making for Halloween.

 Ghostie Box by Laurie Schmidlin

I started by stamping the fence image (from the SPOOKY CUTIES set) onto the acetate box using Black Stazon ink. A tip that I have found to help me when stamping on very slippery surfaces is to make sure I hold the stamp straight over the surface (not at an angle). I added the cute ghostie to the front of the box, popping him up so that he appears to be floating. I stamped the sentiment (from the SPOOKY SENTIMENTS set) using Black Stazon ink.

 Ghostie Box (Detail) by Laurie Schmidlin

 . . . . .

My next box is one that I will be giving to my sons’ teachers for Thanksgiving. I started by using the TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die to create the treat box. To decorate the front, I stamped the woodgrain image (from the FOREVER FALL set) onto strips of matching cardstock and then sponged the edges a bit with a dark ink. The label was created by stamping the sentiment from the Give Thanks stamp set and cutting it outusing the coordinating GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die set. I filled the box with a clear bag of mixed roasted nuts. I also might add some homemade candied almonds…mmmmm!

 Bountiful Blessings Treat Box by Laurie Schmidlin

I hope this has inspired you to come up with an easy to mass produce gift item! They don’t need to take a lot of time to be super cute and heartfelt!

Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans!

Stacey here today with this week’s Confetti Camera…bringing you Anything But a Card/Tag!

There’s nothing like some fabulous Reverse Confetti to get you in the mood to try something new!

I’ve collected a few pocket scrapbooking items this summer in hopes of beginning my very first album using this method!

Here are some closeup shots of the Reverse Confetti embellished pocket cards in my 6 x 8 layout!

Hello Pumpkin Pocket Card

I stamped the FOREVER FALL pumpkin and stem twice…once on the card and then again on a separate card and then fussy cut to prop up a bit for some dimension.   The FOREVER FALL sentiment, Hello Pumpkin, was stamped with black ink to accent the upper corner of the card, leaving plenty of room for a photo!

 hello pumpkin card

 Label Me Pocket Card

A LABEL ME CONFETTI CUTS die cut and twine bow were attached with a small staple to keep this card nice and simple.

 label me card

A Grateful Heart – FALL Pocket Card

Partial FOREVER FALL sentiments and the acorn were stamped for this fun card!  I fussy cut the acorn and propped it on a TAG ME CONFETTI CUTS banner.

Lisa is shooting for the stars with this crazy cool card using WINNING, OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts, DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts and TAG ME Confetti Cuts

Beep! Beep!  Cute card from Kathy cruising by using HERE WE GO along with coordinating HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts.

What a fun card from Lisa using lots of great patterns along with the PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set and PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts.

Susan’s trendy gold stripe notebooks (found at Target in the dollar section!) are perfectly adored with flowers from PETALS ‘N POSIES (and coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts), WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, sentiment from YOU MAKE ME SMILE and additional die cuts using TAG ME Confetti Cuts and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts.

Today on Confetti Camera, the spotlight is on the wonderfully talented LEIGH PENNER

LeighIntroPic

Today, I have a card to share that I made combining two of my favourite sets:

Forever Fall & Lots to Say.

 LPCCApr14

I started with some a My Mind’s Eye patterned paper background.

I diecut a couple of banners using the small tag from Tag Me.

I did this by diecutting only the flagged end with the die and trimming out the rest of the banner

with my paper trimmer.

I repeated this process with some cardstock for the second banner, which I stamped

with the woodgrain pattern from Forever Fall.

In the same colour ink, I stamped the woodgrain heart (love this!) and trimmed it

out by hand.

I stamped my sentiment from Lots to Say and assembled my card,

adding a button and some twine as a finishing touch.
