CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on January 22, 2015

TGI {almost} F, ‘Fetti Fans!

I had so much fun creating yesterday and will have lots to share in the weeks to come.  If you follow Reverse Confetti on Instagram, you saw live shots as it was happening.  Don’t follow us on Instagram?…we sure wish you would!  We’re just now getting active with it (a little behind the times, huh?), but you’ll see sneak peeks of projects, and product, along with day to day activities from yours truly.

{click on camera to go to Reverse Confetti’s Instagram page and follow us!}

. . . . .

Now for a little camera I created myself…

ConfettiCameraRCblog

Yep, it’s Thursday and time for CONFETTI CAMERA! {yay}

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 cards completed inside and out 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 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.

. . . . .

On camera today is the very talented, JEAN MANIS

JeanIntroPic

Hello, Fetti’ Fans! It’s Jean Manis bringing you this week’s Confetti Camera Challenge. I’m sharing a card created with the Here We Go stamp set and its coordinating Confetti Cuts for the In and Out theme. As the mother of two boys, I have always been on the lookout for cards featuring forms of transportation. To connect the outside and inside of the card, I created an air scene on the front and a below-the-water scene on the inside.

ConfettiCamera-Outside-JM

Confetti-Camera-JM

The Lots to Say sentiment set has the fun “Just a Note to Say…” sentiment, which I used for the outside, leading the recipient to open up the card to the “Happy Birthday.” In both cases, the sentiments were heat-embossed.

ConfettiCamera-Inside-JM

I used the Oh My Stars Confetti Cuts set to create the big star and the Stars Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts to create some small stars. I wanted to tie the outside in with the yellow submarine on the inside. I also wanted some color above the dark blue sea to set off the “Happy Birthday” sentiment.

The card base is a light blue. With the Double Edge Scallop Border I cut darker blue cardstock to resemble ocean waves.

Both the airplane and the submarine were attached to the card with dimensional adhesive for some depth.

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

The (long) weekend is in view and we have a fantastic CONFETTI CAMERA for you today!

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 ABC (anything but a card) projects.  Keep your eyes peeled for some fabulous ways to use your Reverse Confetti stamps!

. . . . .

Today on Confetti Camera we have the oh-so-very talented, KATHY MARTIN

140822-Straws-III

Hello ‘fetti fans! It’s Kathy Martin here today to share with you a project I’ve been wanting to make ever since I first saw the HERE WE GO stamp set and HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts. I think this collection is perfect for creating invitations, cupcake toppers, straws and decorations for a little one’s birthday party. Just imagine all you can do with these adorable stamps and dies! Banners, thank you notes and more!

 140822-Straws-Details

140822-Straws-Tops

For this project I purchased some paper straws from the grocery store and attached the stamped and die cut pieces with a tiny glue dot. That’s it! For the display, I created a fun little tag with the TAG ME, TOO and CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts and attached it to a Ball jar with a pretty yellow grosgrain bow. To keep the straws standing up nicely I added a little rice to the bottom of the jar. Better yet, use some matching M&Ms! Have fun!

WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on June 20, 2014

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.

ClosedGraphic

. . . . .

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)

Kathy created this fabulous card using WINNING and OH MY STARS

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

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on June 18, 2014

Happy Hump Day…the weekend is now in sight!  Do you have fun plans?  I’ll be burying myself in the studio in preparation for the JULY 8th release.  Mark you calendars as this release is gonna knock your socks off!

. . . . .

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’m focusing on our current color challenge (yes, again…I LOVE IT and you should play along!).

Color challenges are such a great way to kick start your mojo.  Be inspired by the colors and let them lead the (creative) way!

Here’s this month’s color palette once again.  You can click on the pic to go to the post with the link list to upload your project for a chance to win!

June14ColorChallenge

A few months ago I got a new camera (thank you Target clearance!) and I’ve been playing around with different photography techniques.  I did some research and took some tips from a few sources to change the look of my photo set up.  I love the results and this might just be one of my favorite cards I have done with Reverse Confetti…

LifeIsAnAdventure

To create this card…

I started with a A2 card base.  For anyone wondering, I do not buy my bases.  Simply, it’s a piece of white cardstock cut in half and then folded.

I then cut a panel 1/4″ smaller on each side.  On this panel I added the large star strips from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set and sewed across each of them.

Here’s what the back of the panel looked like when I was done sewing and tucking the remaining thread on the back (I didn’t want to just snip off the ends)…

LifeIsAnAdventure_Back

From there,  stamped the sentiment, plane trail and added the plane from HERE WE GO (cut from the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set, HERE WE GO).

Next, I added the stars with rhinestones popped up on dimensional adhesive.

Finally, I rounded the corners of the card base and large panel and adhered the large panel to the card base with dimensional adhesive.

Finally? Wait…”Something’s missing!” I thought.

The kraft strips were a complete afterthought, but I love what they brought to this project.  Something so simple and it was such a great finishing touch!

A shot of the dimension of this card…

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on June 10, 2014

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

We’ve survived the first day of the first week of summer.  Hey, you gotta start somewhere!  Yesterday was filled with swim lessons, a glitter bottle craft (a la Pinterest), grocery shopping, reading,  laundry, Wii playing and more swimming.  I see feet up and crafting on the list for the rest of the week!  We were actually supposed to go to the beach tomorrow, but seeing as they are having a bit of a shark issue we are going to pass and get right on that feet up and crafting!

It’s Tuesday and TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  I had fun creating this scrappy card using HERE WE GO, HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS, CLASS ACT, CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts and LOVE NOTE and TAG ME Confetti Cuts (remember how I told you I like to mix ‘n match our products?)…

WhereverYouGo

I started with just the 2 strips of pattern paper and the car (stamped and die cut).  From there, I used the notebook paper image to “ground” the car and I used the arrow and “Take Note” sentiment from the ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS along with the sentiment from HERE WE GO.

This is such a fun card using a variety of elements and products along with an awesome color combo.  I’ll definitely being using this combo of lime, aqua, orange and navy again soon!

Have you played along with this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY?  Come play along for a chance to win!  All details can be found HERE and once more, here’s the sketch…

SFYTT13_Jun14

It’s Friday and time to take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew was up to this week for our WEEK IN REVERSE.

. . . . .

Amber made my jaw drop with these mixed media pages using PETALS ‘N POSIES stamps and PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts, as well as the COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS stamp set…

This is such a beautiful baby card from Sarah using LOTS TO SAY and PETALS ‘N POSIES stamps and PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts, as well as our DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die…

She also completed the inside using BEAUTIFUL BANNERS stamps and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts…

Laurie created this darling card using the HERE WE GO stamp set and coordinating HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts, as well as the BEAUTIFUL BANNERS stamp set and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts…

Let's Celebrate by Laurie Schmidlin

Leigh’s thank you card gift set is so sweet…

The packaging for this gift set was created with the SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die and embellished with TAG ME Confetti Cuts dies stamped with a sentiment from the SWEET THING stamp set from our KEY WORDS COLLECTION.

Each of the cards in this set is so sweet!  You can see the full collection on her blog HERE.  This is just one of the several using LOTS TO SAY and WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS

I’m lovin’ Lisa’s super cute and clever shaker card featuring the WINNING stamp set along with the TAG ME and OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts…

This card from Amy rocked this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY with this fun and fabulous card using BEAUTIFUL BANNERS stamps and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts as well as the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set stamped with the small dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

6.4.14

Kathy’s post for this card is titled “Feels Like Summer” and this bright and colorful card using LET’S CHILL stamps and LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts just epitomizes that…

It’s amazing how two people can get such different (and totally wonderful!) projects from the same set!  Here’s Heather’s card that also uses the LET’S CHILL stamps and LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts along with the DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts…

Last, but not least, is this beauty from Amy using this month’s sketch along with BE A BARISTA
