Hello and TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans!

I am definitely looking forward to this weekend!  The weather is supposed to be beautiful and I am excited to spend some quality time outside with the littles and my hubby.  I think I’ve convinced them to help me wash/clean out my car.  We’ll see if they are anywhere to be found when it comes time for that, though!

It’s a super special weekend at Reverse Confetti, too!  Sunday is our (monthly) blog hop and I promise you do not want to miss it!

Time to take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week!

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!

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Friday and time to take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Lisa’s take on the “Tab Tuck Card” (name courtesy of Confetti Crew member, Sarah) using the new CLASS ACT stamp set and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts (along with arrows from ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS)  is absolutely FABULOUS (and it uses March’s Color Challenge colors, too!)…

Lisa also made this darling cheerful Easter card using CARTON CUTIES stamp and CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts…

**For those waiting on Carton Cuties Confetti Cuts, we are awaiting our shipment.  They were sent overnight from the manufacturer… to the wrong address.  Ahhh!!   Thank you for your patience as they make their way to us!**

Sarah’s take on the color challenge with the PETALS ‘N POSIES and I LIKE YOU stamp sets along with the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set is just gorgeous!

Amber did a whole lot of mixing and matching of Reverse Confetti products on this card!!  How many can you spot?  Here’s the breakdown on what was used… PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set with the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts; BEAUTIFUL BANNERS stamp set and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts; ALL ABOUT YOU stamp set; SO STRIPEY stamp set; LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and finally, the tab from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set…

Seriously, every time I looked at this card I saw something new! Wow!

Stacey’s style is just so fun!  Love how she layered the colors from the March Color Challenge in the great card using GO TOGETHER from our Key Words Collection…

I’m loving this birthday card from Val using the WHOLE LOTTA DOTS and ALL ABOUT YOU stamp sets paired with the TAG ME and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts.

Another crazy week gone by!  For those of you following our housing adventure…we have accepted an offer on our house (YAY!).  We are still on the hunt for one to move into, and we will see how that all pans out in the next few weeks.  We just backed out of one due to some (multiple) issues with the home.  I think it was God’s way of saying that it wasn’t the one for our happy family.  I look forward to being off of real estate web sites this weekend and having my nose buried in my sketch book prepping for upcoming releases!  I need the break and my mojo needs a boost!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and time for WEEK IN REVERSE, where we take a peek back on what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Love is in the air!  I just love the projects that I am seeing from both the Confetti Crew and YOU!

Stacey’s daughter’s Valentines are just too cute!

CRUSHIN’; ARROW, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER, LOVE NOTE

Amy’s daughter’s Valentine’s are so super cute, too!

SWEET THING, WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS

Stacey’s fun, quirky and layered card was the perfect match for this not-so-sly, but oh so cute fox!

Amber’s gold hearts are right on trend!  I love all the details on this card!

Oh my goodness…love these layers that Lisa created! Wow!

BE A BARISTA; LOVE NOTE, SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts

Sarah’s card has so many delicious details!  I could sip up that cocoa right from the card!

BE A BARISTA, I LIKE YOU; LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts

I love all the tones of aqua that Leigh used to make this simply elegant card.

CONFETTI CAMERA

Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans!

We’re glad that you are joining us for this week’s 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.

. . . . .

This week the Confetti Camera is zooming in on Confetti Crew member SARAH GOUGH.

I love dies. As my SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts flew over to NZ, I started day dreaming about ways to get even more fun out of this already awesome die. Thinking about the oval, I thought it might be perfect as a speech bubble! I was so excited to try it out and love how it looks!

Here’s the simple how to:

concamSarahGoughTUTE (1)

Cut the Sweet Treat Tent – you only need the top portion, this is great for using up card scraps.

concamSarahGoughTUTE (2)

Trim off the top tab.

concamSarahGoughTUTE (3)

Decide which side you want the speech bubble to point – make an angled cut as long as you want your pointy bit.

concamSarahGoughTUTE (4)

Make a second cut, straight down.

concamSarahGoughTUTE (5)

Voila!

If you like, you can leave your panel edge straight. I wanted my corners to match up. I don’t have a corner punch this exact size, so I used a trick I often utilize with dies (especially when trimming borders to size)

concamSarahGoughTUTE (6)

Lay your panel on the die, making it as long as you want the panel to be.

concamSarahGoughTUTE (7)

Using your finger or a bone folder, rub over the die to create an impression in the cardstock.

concamSarahGoughTUTE (8)

Trim away on the lines and you’ll have perfectly matching corners!

concamSarahGoughTUTE (9)

concamSarahGoughTUTE (10)

 A couple of more detail shots…

ConCamSarahGoughCLOSE (3)

ConCamSarahGoughCLOSE (2)

I also made a panel for the inside of my card – this time I cut the Sweet Treat Tent once, then laid the panel back inside the die and carefully re-cut it, making sure to only run my cutting plates through enough to cut the oval again, then cranking in reverse to avoid cutting too far. I trimmed off the excess and had a fun double bubble panel!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a look back and see all the fun creative goodness that the Confetti Crew has come up with this week.

Savannah is always making me do a double take with her masking and mixing ‘n matching of stamps!

This week the Confetti Camera is zooming in on Confetti Crew member VAL STANGLE!

ValerieIntroPic

Her Confetti Camera project…

RCOct2013Anniversary

This project uses: I LIKE YOU, FOREVER FALL, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS and ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS

What do you like best about this project?

The way the stamped elements and pre-printed cards guide the viewer around the card; “I love you, today, yesterday, tomorrow & always XO.”  That, and I made sure to use red, Jay’s favorite color.

What was your process on making this project? Did you have a starting point (color, inspiration, sketch? )

I had a stack of Simple Stories cards leftover from a quickie vacation scrapbook I put together recently, and the tab page was something I knew could be worked into a card for our anniversary.  From there, I added another card strip and elements from several RC set to bring it to life.

Stitching adds visual interest to the striped panel and to the pre-printed tabs that would otherwise look flat.

 What inspiration can others take from this project?

Don’t be afraid to mix up sets when working on a project, I used 5 RC sets on this card and it all works.  Also, patterned paper can be your friend if used in ways to compliment your stamped images.

 Describe/Share your stamping space.

RC-CCSpace

I am a standing stamper, I just can’t sit and stamp at all!  My space is a 10’ section of cabinet height cupboards topped with a Corian counter that is in our small great room off the kitchen.  A bonus, we when entertain, it becomes a buffet. I hide everything in the cabinets below or in another room.

 Do you have to clean your desk before starting a new project?

Absolutely.  As my space is not in a room that is closed off from the rest of the home, I clean it up after every whirlwind session.  A clean, organized space also allows me the think clearly.

I store my RC stamps in clear sleeves that have a computer printed graphic for easy viewing.  The sleeves are kept in a RC photo box in the bookcase at the end of my counter.

RCCCStampStorage

 What is your must-have tool?  Why do you like it so much? 

My Tonic guillotine cutter.  I use it every single time I craft.  It cuts precisely and is not an expensive cutter. And, since I use dies on almost every card, my Cuttlebug and/or Grand Calibur.

Do you always make A2 sized cards?  If you deviate from the standard size, what favorite size to make?  

I make A2 cards frequently, but love square cards as well as other non-standard sizes.

What is your favorite RC project so far? Why?

It’s hard to pick a favorite, but if I have to choose just one, it is my monthly home décor scrap project.  It sits on my workspace and I see it every day.

WEEK IN REVERSE

on October 04, 2013

WOW…Friday, already!?  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, but this week seemed to zooooom by!

I know that part of my weekend will be spent cheering for my alma mater, Arizona State University, who will be duking it out (here in Dallas) with Notre Dame.  Do I have tickets?…no (sniffle), but I’ll be cheering them on from the comforts of my living room sofa.  I’m hoping to get some crafty time in, too!

. . . . .

It’s time to take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew has created this week in our WEEK IN REVERSE.

Heather is just one of the designers that decided to use her Reverse Confetti stamps on a scrapbook page this week!  I just adore how this layout (the October SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY) and sentiment, along with the graphic background compliment the picture of her beautiful daughter with her face painted!

PEACOCK PRETTIES, I LIKE YOU

HeatherScrap

Val also did a scrapbook page.  I love all the elements and how she flipped the SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY to create this page featuring her son playing water polo.

ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS, LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS, COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS

ValScrap

This might just be one of my favorite cards from Amy Kolling!  I love all the colors and details and how stacked up all the images, dots and large sentiment.

SPOOKY CUTIES, SPOOKY SENTIMENTS, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

AmyK2

Amy also used the latest SFYTT on this card that is just so sweet!  It’s the perfect card to give to a loved one!

COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS

AmyK

Susan had a mind-share with Amy and came up with this fun card that also features 1-2-3.  Now, they’ve got me thinking I need to make one that says ABC!

COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS, FOREVER FALL, LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS

Susan

Amy Sheffer sure knows how to WOW with her cards and this one is no exception!  I love how the simple white sentiment panel stands out against all the fun details.

I’m batty for  Dawn’s card using this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  I love how she stamped the fence multiple times  for a bold panel.

Laurie’s bright and cheerful card put a huge smile on my face!  Love the use of the buttons as the rainbow and her sparkly and colorful “COUNT.”

It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

I love being able to mix and match my stamps, so the other day I was brainstorming  which (previously released) sets I could match up with the Halloween sets.  ** LIGHT BULB** when my eyes hit I LIKE YOU.  Since I can’t stop saying how much I love Halloween, I figured I might as well make a card that says it, too.  You can pretty much bank on a Christmas version of this in the coming months (don’t say I didn’t warn you).

I LIKE YOU, along with SPOOKY CUTIES and SPOOKY SENTIMENTS

ILikeYou

This card definitely has a lot of layers and depth.  Here’s a detail shot of the main image panel, which has a die cut circle base, a pinked circle and another circle layered on top.  By matting the pinked circle it is set off and catches the eye a little more than if it had not been.  From this angle, you can also see I popped up the pumpkin and the bat (both from SPOOKY CUTIES), as well as the “&” punched circle (from I LIKE YOU).  Did you know that a 3/4″ circle punch works perfectly for popping out/up the “&” circle?

ILikeYou_closeup2

I bet you didn’t expect to see aqua on a Halloween card!  I love how it pairs with the orange, black, purple and green!  I added aqua/teal colored sequins to tie into the aqua cardstock panel and to give the card a little bit of sparkly flair.
