WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on October 22, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Wednesday and time for a fun and kind of technique-y WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS.  I know what you’re thinking…two days in a row with techniques(s).  Parenthesis around the “s” because it’s the same technique, but YES!  I am having quite a bit of fun adding texture to my Reverse Confetti projects.  So much so, that I thought that I would share a little “how to.”

First, 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.  And, as I noted above, I am sharing how to add some fun texture to your Reverse Confetti cards and projects…with embossing paste.

So, here it goes…

First, what you are going to need are a stencil, embossing paste and color/shimmer spray (totally optional, but wait ’til you see how cool it looks with the embossing paste).  Of course, the other elements of your card, too.  I am showing you how to use the stencil and paste on a TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die cut…

Supplies

I cut out one TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die cut and then applied the embossing paste to it using a piece of cardstock (no fancy tools, here).  After I peeled up the stencil and allowed it to dry, this is what it looked like…

TagWithEP

I then sprayed the color spray on top of the embossed tag.  I used the amethyst that is shown above and it made gigantic mess because there was a clog in the sprayer (ugh!).  Fortunately, when I buy things I sometimes buy them in just about every color I can get my hands on.  Then it was off to the aqua color color spray, which I actually like a lot better!

I apologize that I don’t have a stop out picture showing just the die cut, embossing pasted, color sprayed tag, but here it is on my completed card…

(pardon the smudgy marks…that was me trying some new settings on the camera).

TreatsCard2

The main image panel has a sentiment created from the LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS stamp set, along with the “TREATS” die from the TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  The debossed circle is part of the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set.

Recognize the sketch?  Yep, it’s this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  There are still a few more days to play along for a chance to win.  All the details can be found HERE.

And, one more shot of the completed card.  I just love the texture and color pop of the tag behind the main image panel!

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s a big day here at the del Muro house…it’s OU/TX weekend.  If you follow college football at all, you know this is Big (yes, with a capital B).  I wanted to get married on OU/TX weekend 11 years ago…Tony looked at me like I had two heads.  With that, I learned that I may not be Sooner born or Sooner bred, but you better believe I am Sooner wed!  BOOMER!

For those of you that aren’t taking in the college football action today, and maybe have a little crafty time…come play along with the October Sketch For You To Try!

NEW RELEASE HOP

By admin
on October 08, 2014

Hello and THANK YOU for such a wonderful response to our October Special Mini Release!  I’ve received so many sweet comments and emails! Love you guys!

NowAvailable

Since our prize schedule change a little with this special mini release, here’s a reminder of times, etc…

ReadyForConfetti

All of the new release are available in the store now.

To celebrate the new release, the Confetti Crew has put together a fabulous hop with a ton of “Confetti Creativity” using the new stamps and Confetti Cuts dies.

Note, there is a full list of hoppers at the bottom of this post in case there are any breaks along the way.

. . . . .

TWO NEW CONFETTI CUTS

EnvieWrapProductGraphic   HangingOutProductGraphic

TWO NEW STAMP SETS

RoundaboutProductGraphic   RoundaboutAdditionsProductGraphic

. . . . .

I have A LOT to share with you today!

My first project for you today is a fun project that was very inexpensive to put together and the colors can be switched to accommodate any special occasion or holiday!

BirthdayCup

I started with a empty clear cup and lid that I snagged from my local deli and then added the front panel that is create with the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set, CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts and stars from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.

To get this shape from the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, I trimmed it at the perforation mark and then rounded the corners.  Easy Peasy!

I filled the cup with Jolly Rancher candies, put the lid on and tied a ribbon on top.

TIP: Secure your ribbon on the bottom of the cup with a little bit of double sided tape.

Finally, I added dangles created from the HB2U sentiment from the ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set stamped on CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die cuts, along with some addition stars that I cut our from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.  I topped the stars off with sequins and enamel dots.

Detail shot…

. . . . .

This next project also features the new ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die (in a more “traditional” way) along with the new ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set…

SpecialDeliveryEnvie

This is a baby boy inspired envelope.  I love this color combination (gray, navy and orange) and this was so fun and easy to create!  Again, switch up the colors to accommodate your special occasion or holiday.

Here’s the flip side to write a to and/or from…

SpecialDelivery_Back

. . . . .

As promised yesterday, I’m back in Halloween mode!  (EEK…I still need to get my decorations up at home).

This project features the new HANGING OUT Confetti Cuts die that creates a door hanger…

HangingOutPocket

It was very easy to create this pocket door hanger (holding 2 snack size Hershey bars).

To create the base:

Cut a sheet of cardstock to 4.25″ x 11″

Score at 3.5″ x 3.27″ (these create the folds for the pocket)

I layered the top portion of my hanger with pattern paper.  To do this, you can cut both the pattern paper and the cardstock at the same time (you may have to run it back and forth a few times).  Or you can run them through separately.  If you choose to do them separately, mark lightly on the second sheet with pencil where to cut to insure that you get the pieces lined up.

A few detail shots…

HangingOutPocket_HangDetail

The sentiment is from the September release set, CAST A SPELL.  To embellish, I cut the witch hat from the CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts set from black felt and added a star from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.  I then added a purple heart button tied off with linen thread.

HangingOutPocket2

It’s a chocolate pocket!

HangingOutPocket_Detail1

. . . . .

Yes, I still have MORE to show you using this fabulously fun Confetti Cuts die!  Just one more project.  Here’s a fun lil’ Halloween themed giftie (again, switch up the theme/colors to create your unique hanger for any occasion)…

HangingOutDC

Instead of putting the hanger facing to the side, I did it on the top of this sheet of cardstock.  The perforated line was created using OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts…

HangingOutDC2

Detail of witch and sentiment from CAST A SPELL (cut with coordinating CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts), along with the rounded tag panel (turned upside down) from TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts…

Roundabout

Around and around we go! Have fun with these great versatile circle sentiments made to coordinate with the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die and the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set (both large and small non-scallop circles). In addition, the dashed lines create the return address portion on the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts, die. Also included in this set are 4 circles so that you can create your own bokeh effect project, or just use them as the polka dots (my favorite!).

 Set of 9 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

Large Circle 2.05”

Reverse Confetti stamps are high quality photopolymer mounted on an acetate sheet.

CONFETTI CUTS: Envie Wrap

We all know how to make a cute card, but now you can make a cute (and coordinating) envelope with the ENVIE WRAP. Simply cut from cardstock or pattern paper and add your sentiment/address label from the ROUNDABOUT and ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp sets to create one of a kind, jaw dropping envelopes. Just imagine your Christmas or birthday cards arriving and standing out against all the others! This die includes detailed debossing, a perforated line to easily crease over your envelopes and the center circle is the same size as the large non-scallop circle in the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set

SIZE REFERENCE:

Envie Wrap 5.76” x 2.4”

CONFETTI CUTS: Hanging Out

The Hanging Out die creates a cut out to create a door hanger. Imagine leaving a festive door hanger on your neighbor’s door or creating one for yourself. You know that the kids will love them for themselves, their friends and teachers! Create fun one-of-a-kind door hangers easily using the Hanging Out Confetti Cuts die.

While you can use this on any size cardstock, note that best results for centering the cut out hole are done using a 4.25” width sheet of cardstock.

OCTOBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By admin
on October 01, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Can you believe it’s already October?  I’d love to say that fall is in the air, but it’s still hot and humid here in Houston.  I’m crossing my fingers in hope.

With or without the changing of the leaves, it is time for the new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

Oct14

The Confetti Crew has whipped up some fabulous inspiration, but let’s go over the details of this challenge first (notice the new dates!)…

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!

You may enter as many times as you wish.

There will be a winner each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 30th of each month.

. . . . .

I know that you will have a blast with this sketch!  Feel free to make it your own, as long the sketch can still be recognized on your project.

Here’s my take on the sketch using GIVE THANKS, CAST A SPELL, SO MANY STARS, GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts, CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts

SFYTTOct143

I love making my own patterned paper.  To do that, I used a couple of different stars from the SO MANY STARS on the green panel.

I added the the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts in orange on the side of the right rectangular panel because it was desperately needing a pop of color.  I love how it looks!

SFYTTOct142

For my finishing touches, I added the crow from the CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts die set that I covered in Diamond Glaze, as well as a few sequins.

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on September 30, 2014

Hello and Happy Tuesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY, but instead of a card I have something extra special to share with you…

HalloweenBanner

I created this banner for the CKC event that we attended earlier this month in San Marcos, TX.  Just about everyone that came into the booth asked about the dies, etc.  Originally, I didn’t think that  I was going to blog it, but since it was such a hit I thought I would share it with you.

Do you recognize the banner?

Yes!  It’s the pennant from the WINNING Confetti Cuts die set…

I flipped it so that the point was down and cut it from a variety of pattern papers in my stash.

Then, I layered it with the smaller circle from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set and topped it with a stamped (LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS) pink circle, also from the WINNING Confetti Cuts die set.  To embellish, I cut stars from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set and topped them with green sequins and orange enamel dots.

Detail shot of a single embellished pennant…

HalloweenBanner_detail

I love when I get to “stretch” the use of my stamp and dies.  This is just one way to get more from the WINNING Confetti Cuts die set.  Don’t be too surprised if you see another banner or two using these Confetti Cuts and stamps for the upcoming holidays!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on September 10, 2014

Hello and Happy Hump Day!

It’s Wednesday and time for WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!

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.

Today, I am focusing on something super simple and a way to get more out of your stamps and Confetti Cuts dies…create your own embellishments.

I’ve done that here on this tag (TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts) I attached to a few cookies in a cello bag…

CookieTag

I have to admit, that I first reached for some pre-fabricated embellishments that I bought at a big box store, but then I thought better of it as I looked at the CAST A SPELL stamps on my studio desk.

I layered the broom and and witch hat, both cut from the coordinating CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts die set.  To dress it up a little, I paper pieced the ribbon around the hat and added a star (OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts) topped with a sequin and rhinestone.

Easy peasy, right?

Here’s a few tips to keep in mind when creating your own embellishments…

Keep it simple.  I stamped in black on kraft paper.  Because of the subdued color, it doesn’t take away from the main focal point, but rather enhances it.  I also want to mention, that I brought this project to the CKC convention last week and A LOT of people commented on how they loved the look of the black on kraft.

Still keeping it simple, layer coordinating images to create a fun, clustered look.

Dress it up a little if needed.  I added the paper pieced strip (same paper as the top of the tag) and the embellished star for just a little pop of color and bling.

. . . . .

I’m keepin’ it short and sweet as I have all your orders to get out the door!  Have a great day!

My first project for you today features the new TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

TreatTote1

Tutorial for how to assemble both of our new totes can be found HERE (video) and HERE (picture tutorial).

To create this TREAT TOTE, I used black and white patterned paper as I really wanted the colors on the “TREATS” panel to pop.  I cut 2 “TREATS” sentiments out…one in orange and one in white and layered them, slightly offset.  The circle reinforcer at the top of the bag is from the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shot…

TreatTote1detail

. . . . .

My second project today features a fun mix of new and previously released Reverse Confetti products…

GotCandy1

I saw these cute bags at Michaels and immediately knew what I wanted to do with them!

First things first…fill them with candy.  I put 2 mini Hershey bars in the bags.

Second…make them cute!

To do that, I cut the rounded top tag from the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die (I love when I get to use these dies in fun and different ways) and then made a score mark 1 inch in from the straight end (opposite the rounded end).  This is where the tag is folded over the bag.  I wanted a little more detail, so before I attached them to the bag I used the perforation line from the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts to add the perforation/dashed line.  To attach the tag to the bag, I simply used a small stapler.

On the bottom/round portion of the tag, I added patterned paper and then layered my embellishments.  The Kraft panel is cut from the new GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts and then stamped with the large dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS.  I created the spider with circles from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set, a small circle punch, enamel dots and strips of black cardstock.  The orange panel is cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set and is stamped with a sentiment from SPOOKY SENTIMENTS.

I’ll be giving these out to my kiddos’ teachers for Halloween.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again…I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!  Not the dressing up part, so much, but all the decor and projects that are all about Halloween!  I know most people love Christmas the most, but for me it’s Halloween, then Valentine’s Day and then Christmas.  Being that it’s (just about) fall, it is time to get started all those fun Halloween and Thanksgiving projects!

So, without further adieu let me introduce you to our Halloween stamp set and its coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

Introducing GIVE THANKS and the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

The GIVE THANKS Confetti Cuts die set contains two label dies.  The larger die coordinates with the label image in the GIVE THANKS stamp set.  The smaller label is to use with other sentiments or as a layer on your cards, scrapbooks or other paper crafting projects.

I paired this set with the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts to create a fun giftie that’s perfect for a hostess, friend, teacher, family member (ok, well anyone, really!)…

I created my own embellishment by taking the apple (yes, the apple) from our CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set and flipping it upside down to create a pumpkin.  This was an idea I got from Confetti Crew member, Leigh Penner.  I tell ya, she is CLEVER!  I cut leaves from felt with the leaf swag die from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set.  The finishing touch is a button with twine and tulle that I popped on top of the pumpkin.

PumpkinDetail

This is just part of the gift set that I created!

I also made a shadow box with the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die and GIVE THANKS stamp set…

ShadowBoxandTote

To create this 3D pumpkin, I cut 5 of the large GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts, folded them in half (crease with a bone folder) and adhered them together.  I topped off with leaves from FRESH ‘N FRUITY Confetti Cuts and a button tied up with linen thread…

There is so much more inspiration to see using these stamps and dies that are releasing on September 8th!

Do you love big sentiments on your cards, scrapbook layouts and other paper crafting project?  So do we!

Introducing IN A BIG WAY

InABigWayProductGraphicA

In addition to introducing you to this great new sentiment set, I also want to show you one of the two new PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts that I used on my first couple of cards for this post.

Introducing PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts…

PPTrianglesProductGraphicA

For these cards, I kept it very clean and simple.  I love how the IN A BIG WAY sentiment pops against the colored PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES layer and white base.

TrianglesHelloCard

The PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts die cut is cut from watercolor paper that I colored with pink, orange and yellow.  I then applied a very thin layer Diamond Glaze so that it would have some sheen to it.

TrianglesHello

As you know, I love dimension.  Here is a shot of how it is all popped up…

TrianglesHelloDetail

I had so much fun creating this card, that I also made it in blue and purple with the “Thanks” sentiment from IN A BIG WAY

Yesterday, I showed you the new TREAT TOTE.  That is just one of the totes that we are releasing this month!

TAGGED TOTE

TaggedToteProductGraphicA

This die set contains SEVEN Confetti Cuts dies!

The base of the tote has a rounded top and we have included a rounded top panel to coordinate with it.  This rounded top panel can be used as a layer on the tote (or any other paper crafting project); however, you can also turn it into a tag.  The small round circle acts as a hole punch and then the larger circle is the reinforcer to be placed over the “punched” hole.  You can easily create handles on the tote using the half oval die.  Also included is a bow die, just as a fun detail.

Here’s my sweet birthday tote using the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set and IN A BIG WAY stamp set…

TaggedToteBirthdayStarDetail1

The scalloped edge panel was cut using the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die (previously released).  The stars are cut from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set (previously released).

As promised yesterday, I have a photo tutorial on how to assemble the two totes that are being released September 8th.  For the tutorial, I have used the TAGGED TOTE, but note that assembly is the same for both totes.

Step 1: Cut 2 of the totes and one of the base of the tote.  I have trimmed the 2 smaller tabs off of one of the totes.

Step1

Step 2: (Optional) You can create handles on your tote by using the half oval die.

Step2

Step3

Step 3: Adhere the two totes together.

Step4

Step 4: Add the bottom of the tote to the small tab in the center.

Step5

Step 5: Assemble into tote, adhering the 2 other side flaps.

Step 6: Fold the bottom in and adhere tabs to it.

Step6

Now your tote is assembled and ready to be embellished.

Step7

Step8

Here’s mine all done up with the “Thanks” sentiment from the new IN A BIG WAY stamp set…

Notice something else that might be new?  Yep, there’s the other PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts die AND the brown panel is the new GIVE THANKS LABEL (more on this one tomorrow!).
