By Jen del Muro

Greetings ‘Fetti Fans and Happy (almost) 2016…

We are completing this year with one last Confetti Camera that is sure to inspire you to ring in 2016 in style!

A little bit about 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 each of our designers will be coming up with a SET of something. You’ll see gift sets, card sets, pocket scrapping sets and much more this time around.

A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will follow the same theme 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.

In the spotlight today is Amy Sheffer

Hi ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy here today with the latest installment in the Set ‘Em Up Confetti Camera series. The theme is to create a set of something. With it being New Year’s Eve, I thought a set of New Year’s shaker tags and mini champagne bottles would be fun and appropriate!

RCconfetticamera1215_1-1

The shaker tags were cut with the THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts from a crisp, white card stock, then filled with silver, gold, clear, and white sequins for a glamorous look.

RCconfetticamera1215_1-4

RCconfetticamera1215_1-3

The word “hello” was die-cut with the HELLO Confetti Cuts die out of black card stock. I stamped the year using the new ALPHABETICAL stamp set. The year is white embossed on vellum, then stitched onto the tag frame using gold metallic thread. I curled the loose thread ends for a festive look.

Happy New Year!

Yesterday we introduced the first of two tag sets that we are releasing this month.  That’s right ‘Fetti Fans, we have another tag set releasing on November 8th and I think you’re gonna love it!

TOPPED OFF TAG

ToppedOffTagCCProductGraphic

This is a piece die set that features a tag and then two complementing layers, one for the top and one for the left side of the tag die.

This was one of those “light bulb” ideas that came to me while I was doodling in my sketch book and I am so pleased with how this product (and some others…hint, hint) came out.

My first project that I have to share with you today is a set of 3 tags using the new TOPPED OFF TAG along with the new HANG UPS Confetti Cuts and the MERRY & BRIGHT stamp set (with coordinating Confetti Cuts – released last month)…

DSC06071

For this tag set, I cut 3 white tags and then 3 black cardstock cuts of the diagonal stripe layer for the left side of the tag.  I added the light bulbs on dimensional adhesive and finished it all off with hangers from the new HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die set…

DSC06075

. . . . .

While I do love making tags, I really wanted to incorporate one into a card.  For this next project I’m sharing, I used both the new GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts and the new TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts (I love how these layer!!!)…

DSC06066

The vellum piece is cut from the GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts die and then I layered a piece of pink cardstock and a TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts.

The word is cut from the HELLO Confetti Cuts die in gold cardstock and I created a hanger with the HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die set to coordinate.  Here’s a close up of both the hanger and the stripe layer that “tops off” the tag (hence the name)…

CONFETTI CAMERA

By Jen del Muro
on May 14, 2015

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

TGI…almost F!  The weekend is *this close*!

It’s Thursday and CONFETTI CAMERA time!  Woot Woot!

ConfettiCameraRCblog

A little bit about 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 throwback projects from each of our designers.  I have been stamping for a long time and I have seen things come and go and then come around.  A primary example of this is shaker cards.  We’re taking a look back to those “way back when” projects and breathing new life into them.

A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will follow the same theme 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.

. . . . .

Today, the spotlight is on the fabulously talented and sweet HEATHER PULVIRENTI

HeatherIntroPic

Hi ‘Fetti Fans! Heather P. here today with my take on the “Everything Old is New Again” theme.  When I first started becoming more active in the stamping community, matchbook candy holders were totally the IN thing. You could find countless samples popping up in the Splitcoast Stampers gallery and on various blogs.  I am always *way late* when it comes to trends, so it’s fitting that I would finally make one years later. Lol!

 051415

To create my candy holder, I used the Matchbook Candy Holder tutorial over on SCS.  I simply cut and scored the green CS and silver glitter CS using the tutorial specs as a guideline, and adhered where appropriate.  Now for the fun part… Decorating! The Pina Colada Quick Card Panels are some of my favorite, and I’ve been hoarding this offset black chevron card since first receiving it.  To embellish the front, I simply trimmed the card to fit and adhered it to the front flap.  I then die cut two Hello Confetti Cuts from silver and yellow CS, and adhered them together slightly offset before attaching them to the QCP and embellishing with teal enamel dots.

 051415c

To decorate the inside, I cut a strip of white CS and stamped it with a portion of the sentiment from Donut You Know in black ink.  I love that by simply leaving off the “happy birthday”, it becomes the perfect sentiment for this little treat! To finish up, I trimmed the ends of the white CS strip into flag shapes and adhered the sentiment to the silver glitter CS insert.  For a little added fun detail, I left the flag ends just long enough so they would peek out from behind the closed flap.

 051415b

Well, that wraps it up for me today, but be sure to come back tomorrow for more Reverse Confetti inspiration!

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By Jen del Muro
on April 14, 2015

Hello and Happy Tuesday ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s  TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY and I have a super fun and easy card to share with you that uses some of the new April release goodies.

What kind of cards to you send?  For me aside from holidays, it’s birthday, friend/hello, thank you and sympathy for the most part.  I love sending a card just to send one and I know that the person on the other end gets a smile from it.  Seriously, when is the last time you got snail mail “just because?”

This card is the perfect card for just that “occasion…”

HelloNote

I stamped the word “hello” from the new COLOR ME HAPPY stamp set on the lined card from the Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANELS. Then layered it with a white die cut from the HELLO Confetti Cuts die.  It needed just a little something, so I added the banner/flag from the new LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts set and stitched across.

I added that panel to a card base that I had already adhered patterned paper and gray cardstock to and viola…easy peasy “just because” hello card…

I have had so much fun playing with this release and I just know that you are going to love creating with it, too!

My first project I have to share with you today is a tassel garland that I created using the new TASSEL Confetti Cuts die…

TassleGarland

Needless to say, not only have I had a little bit of fun creating with this new Confetti Cuts die, but I have also had a blast shopping for tissue paper.  Imagine my jaw dropping when I saw this gorgeous gold “tissue” paper at Michaels just after I picked up the black and white stripey one at Target.  I could not get home fast enough to make this!

Detail shot…

TassleGarlandDetail

. . . . .

This next card that I have to share with you uses the same color palette.  I have to admit that was not planned at all.  Apparently, my subconscious knew what it was doing when it kept me reaching for these colors!

GeometricHello

This card features the new GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die along with the new HELLO Confetti Cuts die.

I cut the GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND from a piece of white cardstock and then adhered it to a white cardstock base.  I then cut it from gold shimmer cardstock and filled in the triangles on the one adhered to the card base.

The HELLO Confetti Cuts die is cut from a couple of pieces of black cardstock and layered for a little extra depth.

GeometricHelloDetail

As evident from many of my release projects, I just can’t keep away from the sequins!  I layered 2 sizes and topped them off with an enamel flatback pearl here as my finishing touch to this card.

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: Shine From Within, Color Me Happy and More Confetti Cuts Dies

By Jen del Muro
on April 06, 2015

Greetings ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Monday!

It is, indeed, a very happy Monday here as we continue our COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI (a.k.a. sneak peeks) for our special April release.  In case you missed Day One, be sure to scroll down and check it out as we introduced A LOT of new goodies yesterday.  Today, we have even more to share with you, including 2 new stamp sets and more Confetti Cuts dies.  We’ll be showing off the new Quick Card Panels, as well.

ConfettiCountdown

Just a note…all of our releases will happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month.  We generally release new product every other month.  This is a special release, as April is usually a non-release month for us. We’ll still be hopping on the 8th, whether there is a release or not.  Just remember, “Eight is Great!”

. . . . .

Don’t forget to leave a comment here and on each sneak peek post this week for a chance to win!

In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion.  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic pinned to the top of our feed…

NextRelease

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on April 7th will be randomly chosen to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Winners for both the blog comments and Facebook comments will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog as well as on Facebook.

Grab that cuppa joe, because here we go!

I love the look of paint on my paper crafting projects, but sometimes it’s just not all that practical or I just want something a little quicker (and easier).  Enter…

COLOR ME HAPPY

ColorMeHappyProductGraphic

This set is filled with paint swashes and splatters, as well as a couple of sentiments.  The “hello” sentiment was also made into a Confetti Cuts die (same size)…

Hello

HelloCCProductGraphic

I created a set of 3 mini cards using the template you can find HERE using these 2 new products together…

HelloPaintTrio

I stamped the paint swash from COLOR ME HAPPY in aqua and then added the olive green splatters.  I then adhered the HELLO Confetti Cuts die cut, with centers attached in the letters.  As a finishing touch, I added 3 gold sequins.

This clean and simple trio is going to make a great gift set!

HelloPaint1

 . . . . .

While I don’t intend to put the above cards in the box featured in this next project, it would be perfect for sweet cards sets just like it!

I love packaging.  There I said it.

Actually, that is no secret, as I love creating Confetti Cuts dies to make cute packages and such. I also love collecting (ahem, hoarding) other types of packaging and I have been collecting (ahem, hoarding) this particular box just waiting for the perfect opportunity to dress it up.  I saw it as I was looking through my drawers prepping for this release and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!

HappyThoughtsBox

I started with one of the Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANELS (love these panels!!) and then layered it with the largest rounded square from the new SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts set (this die set is never leaving my desk).  The sentiment is stamped in dark pink and then I stamped the swash over each word after I stamped off one time in the same color ink.

HappyTHoughtsbox2

I added the heart (cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set) and a few gold sequins as embellishments.

My favorite embellishment on here is the tassel cut from the new TASSEL Confetti Cuts die.  I added some gold curling ribbon to tie in with the gold sequins.  Viola…super easy and cute gift packaging!

HappyThoughtsBox3

. . . . .

I’ve had so much fun inking up this next set!  It’s a sentiment set that I know I will find myself reaching for over and over because I love giving uplifting cards.  These sentiments are perfect for all those upcoming graduations, or just to let someone know that you care and are cheering for them.

Introducing…

SHINE FROM WITHIN

ShineFromWithinProductGraphic

SHINE FROM WITHIN goes great with the new GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die.  Before I had either one in my hands, I already had sketches done of how I wanted to use them together!

Here’s my first card pairing the two…

FromWithin

To make this card, I created an A2 card base.  I then cut 1 piece of patterned paper and one piece of black cardstock to A2 size, too.  I adhered the patterned paper to the card base and then cut the GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die from the piece of black cardstock.  I layered both the negative of the die cut, and the GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die cut on top of the patterned paper.

I then stamped the sentiment on coordinating patterned paper, matted it with black cardstock and adhered it to the card with dimensional adhesive.  Finally, I added some clear sequins (I keep reaching for sequins, don’t I!).

Detail shot…

FromWithin1

. . . . .

My final project for today is a card that features the new SHINE FROM WITHIN stamp set.

As you can see, I didn’t go for the clean and simple look here.  I had a good time playing with lots of layers…

DreamBig1

This sentiment is the perfect size to be paired with the large tag in the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.

DreamBig2

When I thought I was all done with the card, I kept looking at it and thinking, “This needs something.” You know that feeling, right?  It looks fine, but it’s just not all the way done.  That’s how it was for me and then I added the scalloped detail (cut from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die) and the 3 black enamel pearls to the left of the tag.

DreamBig3

. . . . .

That’s all I have for you today, ‘Fetti Fans, but the Confetti Crew has been very, and I mean VERY, busy creating lots of FABULOUS creations to share with you!
