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

RC_WIW0114_valentine3B

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!

WEEK IN REVERSE

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

What a fun week it has been here in the del Muro house!  The kids had VBS all week, which I have to admit was awesome for me.  I had a few extra hours a day to prep for the upcoming release.  I’m doing a lot of prep ahead of time because we are having a family fun week next week.  It’s time to turn of the computers, phones, etc. and focus on what is most important in everyone’s life: family.

. . . . .

Friday brings the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek back at what the super talented Confetti Crew has been up to!

I love that Laurie combined the anchor from HAPPY HARBOR with the sentiment from HERE WE GO.  The stripes on top (from SO STRIPEY) are great for the theme and the finishing touch of the heart strip (LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts) is perfection!

Sometimes having little color makes for big impact, like shown here on Amy Sheffer’s card using TAG ME Confetti Cuts and the WINNING stamp set…

Heather is the master with PEACOCK PRETTIES!  I love the large feather paired with the sentiment from LOTS TO SAY

Sarah had fun with this month’s color challenge and FREIDA FOX

I love this color combo on Lisa’s card using the WINNING STAMP set paired with the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set…

Here’s another one from Lisa featuring her fun and creative style along with HERE WE GO, HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts and DOIN’ THE WAVE

Reverse Confetti + scrapping + altered art + Amber Hight = WOWZAS

(CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts, GO TOGETHER, YOU MAKE ME SMILE, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS)

Leigh cleverly created 2 pattern papers (card base and pattern strip) to create this gorgeous card using PETALS ‘N POSIES and LOTS TO SAY

Hello and Happy Thursday!

Day 3 of summer was interesting, to say the least.  It included catching a garden snake and explaining what two “hugging” lizards were doing on our bricks.  I’ll spare you a pic of the hugging, but here’s the slithery friend I found wandering in the garden yesterday along with a lizard going solo…

DSC01267

DSC01285

It’s a good thing I was a tomboy growing up, because I don’t think that I could hack it otherwise.

In addition to catching critters, we managed to squeeze in a little crafty time this week, too.  Here’s a pic of the glitter bottles we did…

DSC01228

There are a variety of recipes for these out there.  I found that distilled water (warm to get glue to dissolve faster), plus glitter glue and a few extra sparkles was the best combination.

As for the rest of this week…I still need to come up with a Father’s Day project for Tony and squeeze in a science project, too!

. . . . .

I love sharing bits of me here on the Reverse Confetti blog, but I am guessing that you came here to see what’s been happening in paper and ink!

Since it’s Thursday it’s time for another fun installment of 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 are focusing on how Reverse Confetti stamp sets are compatible with each other and each of the Confetti Crew members is picking two of their favorites to pair together on their project.

. . . . .

Today on Confetti Camera, the spotlight is on the super-mom, super-stamper, LAURIE SCHMIDLIN

Little Baby by Laurie Schmidlin

Inspired by…

Screen Shot 2014-06-10 at 4.01.17 PM

One evening while getting my little guy ready for bed, it struck me how super cute his sleeper was! That may seem odd, but I had never before really looked at the color combo before. I immediately thought that it would make a pretty cute card! I also thought that the whale reminded me of the whale in the HAPPY HARBOR set! I used the exact colors of the sleeper (navy and mint) to create this baby boy card, but you could easily swap out the colors for a more girly card! I embossed the whale using white embossing powder (I really wanted it to stand out on the navy cardstock) and I stamped the baby sentiment (from the LOTS TO SAY set) using navy ink. That’s it! A quick card perfect for a baby gift or even mass producing for baby announcement/thank you cards!

Joni just took my breath away with this watercolored PETALS ‘N POSIES card (also using BEAUTIFUL BANNERS and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts).

Stacey checked in with her “artsy” side for this beautiful watercolored card using COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

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

Only Leigh would think to make flowers into stars (so clever!).  I love this card using ALL ABOUT YOU and with PETALS ‘N POSIES.

Get ready for your jaw to drop!  This giftie using LABEL ME, LABEL ME Confetti Cuts, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and SO STRIPEY from Sarah is so crazy cute!

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

Shore do love this card from Amy using HAPPY HARBOR and SO STRIPEY.

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.

Stay tuned this weekend for a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY coming June 1st!

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.

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!

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

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Wow…Friday already!  This week has flown by! Anyone else ready for the weekend? We are having my lil’ man’s birthday party this weekend.  It’s a Batman theme and most of the RSVPs have been girls.  Looks like I’m going to be figuring out a way to incorporate some pink here and there for this party…good thing that comes naturally to me!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and it’s time for WEEK IN REVERSE…where we take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Val’s own (not so) lil’ (anymore) man had a birthday this week and this is the fabulous card that she created for him.

SO STRIPEY, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS, TAG ME Confetti Cuts

CHA was wonderful and I am so glad that I got to share a lot of the time there with two of the Confetti Crew team members: Stacey Schafer and Amy Kolling.  Stacey made these super darling burlap sacks filled with a personalized stamp for each of us.  How sweet is that!?

SWEET THING, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, ARROW Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts

Lisa really made me say, “Awww” out loud when I saw this over the top cute (and foxy!) card.

FREIDA FOX, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts

Here’s another one of Lisa’s cards with a much more masculine feel to it.

LOTS TO SAY, CELEBRATE CAKE, LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS, INNER ROCK STAR

I’m loving all the great details and ink colors on Heather’s card!

I love how Confetti Crew Member, Laurie Schmidlin, added Kraft to this combo HERE.  It looks great and is the perfect neutral to pair with these colors.  I decided to use kraft on the small flag-ended panel on my card.  I topped it with the pinked circle focal panel with the sentiment and two anchors from HAPPY HARBOR.
