WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By Jen del Muro
on January 27, 2016

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

Today, we have a special WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS brought to you by Confetti Crew Member, Amy Sheffer.

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.  It’s us taking a closer look at how something is created, etc.  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.

AmyS

Hi ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy here with a fun peek-a-boo tag for today’s Wednesday in the Works.

RCpeekabootag1-1

I started by filling a Frosted Pillow Box with some candy, then added a pretty tag that I die-cut with the Thanks Tag Confetti Cuts. Because the tag is nearly as large as the box, I decided to cut a window into the tag so that the contents would show through. Here’s what I did:

RCpeekabootag1-2

  1. Die-cut two tags using the Thanks Tag die, one from patterned paper and one from acetate.

RCpeekabootag1-3

  1. Die-cut one Globe from white card stock.

RCpeekabootag1-4

  1. Use the Globe die to cut a circle window in the patterned paper tag.

RCpeekabootag1-5

  1. In-lay the white Globe into the circle window and adhere, using the acetate Thanks Tag die-cut as a backer.

RCpeekabootag1-6

  1. Add a Hang Ups tag topper using a coordinating piece of patterned paper and a metallic gold grommet die-cut.

RCpeekabootag1-7

  1. Embellish with Leafy die-cuts and a metallic gold Lovey Words sentiment.

RCpeekabootag1-8

  1. I wrapped my Pillow Box with a coordinating patterned paper, making sure to cut a Globe opening in it as well.

RCpeekabootag1-9

  1. Note: the 6×6 patterned paper is just a smidge short to fully wrap the pillow box, so I just added some sparkly gold washi tape at the seam to hide the gap.

RCpeekabootag1-10

Thanks for joining me for this week’s Wednesday in the Works!

HAPPY FALL-IDAYS: THANKSGIVING

By Jen del Muro
on October 14, 2015

Hello and welcome to DAY TWO of our HAPPY FALL-IDAYS event, ‘Fetti Fans!

Falliday_Thanksgiving

I hope everyone enjoyed the first day of this special online showcase event that we are hosting this week!  I’ve had a blast making and sharing my projects, as has the rest of the Confetti Crew Design Team.  There are links to those posting towards the end of this post.

Today is all about Thanksgiving (and, my apologies for being a bit late for Canadian Thanksgiving!).

You are going to see some fabulous place settings and other projects (plus much more) from the Confetti Crew today, but I went in a slightly different direction with my project, a paper wreath…

DSC05972

Coming up with something for today was troubling me for a little white, but then while playing with some stuff on my desk (namely the STITCH FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set), a light bulb went off and this little wreath was born.

DSC05965

Here’s how I created this (it’s really quite simple!)…

I cut an “O” with 2 circles dies (I used my larger Spellbinders circles that I keep in my stash).

Then I cut out 20 of the flag ended panels from the STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set.  I folded them over the “O,” starting at the bottom, then the top, then the sides and then filling in between.  I overlapped 4 of the cuts for a little added dimension, without it being too overpowering.

I noticed that the center did not look quite as “clean” as I would like, so I grabbed my large wreath from the new WREATHS Confetti Cuts and cut one from kraft (I didn’t pop out the centers) and then one from a woodgrain patterned paper and layered them on top of each other and then folded/”fluffed” up the sides on the top one…

DSC05959

It still needed a little something to decorate it and I grabbed the PUMPKIN PATCH stamp and Confetti Cuts, along with the LEAFY Confetti Cuts die set and stamped and layered.  I added a few enamel dots and “dew drops” for a bit of texture and detail to finish it off.

DSC05958

When it was all done and just sitting there, I wasn’t immediately sure how to present it.  A quick call to the bestie for a creative chat and I added a paper straw and popped it in a bunch of mums, making it the perfect hostess gift or centerpiece.

DSC05967

Of course, either of my kids would have loved to have it hanging on their door, too.  It was easy enough that I may just have them make their own!

. . . . .

As you know, there is A LOT more inspiration being shared today by the Confetti Crew.  Happy Fall-idays!

on October 07, 2015

One of my most favorite parts of Christmas is the decorating!  And, you can’t have Christmas decorations without lights, so in the spirit of making things bright let me introduce…

MERRY & BRIGHT

MerryBrightGraphic

MERRY & BRIGHT features 5 light bulbs with 4 sentiments and one with a filament.  The base of the bulb is separate so it is easily stamped in a neutral color.  And, of course, we have a coordinating Confetti Cuts die…

MerryBrightCCGraphic

. . . . .

I absolutely love creating with the MERRY & BRIGHT set!  It’s so easy to put together bold and beautiful holiday creations, like this card using a slightly non-traditional color palette and the new HOLLY Confetti Cuts die set…

DSC05821

On this 4.25″ square card I added the (open) DOUBLE SCALLOP GARLAND Confetti Cuts in white as a subtle detail.  This has easily become one of my “go-to” Confetti Cuts!

Detail shot…

DSC05823

. . . . .

My second project that I have to share with you today is both fun and practical.  Fun because it’s crafty and uses both new and previously released Reverse Confetti goodies and practical because the holiday are quickly approaching and this is a fun way to dress up little gifties and gift cards.

Here’s what I started with…

DSC05712

To the left is a little glassine gift sack that I picked up from Michaels.  To the right of it you see a light bulb stamped from the new MERRY & BRIGHT stamp set, 2 cuts from the LEAFY Confetti Cuts die set, a gold banner cut from the LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts die set, CAPPUCCINO TWINE (my favorite) and a black button.

Assembly line…

DSC05709

I layered all the details and attached them to the bags using a little clothespin.  Now I just need to add a gift card and these are all set to go!

The finished product…

WEEK IN REVERSE

By Jen del Muro
on September 25, 2015

Hello and TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans!

What an awesome week it has been here!  What’s happening here, you ask?  There’s the daily routine of shipping orders, checking emails and other little tasks that are all part of being a business.  I’m fortunate to do this from home with a couple of doggies at my feet most days.  We’ve been researching and looking at office space, but it looks like we are staying based at home for now.  I am grateful for the opportunity to work from home, to be available to my kids and to make my own hours (and there are lots and lots of odd hours in there!). I am grateful that I took this leap a few years ago and I get to share my creative passion with  you.  I am so very grateful for YOU, for your support and for you sharing your creativity with me.  Needless to say, I am grateful for A LOT and I am also VERY excited!  There is a lot happening behind the scenes here that I can’t reveal quite yet.  But those long, odd hours are being put to good use to bring new products and exciting events (both online and in person) to you!  Today, I have shelves being built in the Reverse Confetti office and soon those shelves will be packed with new goodies!  Stay tuned! XO-Jen

Now, let’s take a peek at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week!

Have that cuppa?  Ok, then…sit back and enjoy the new product reveals and inspiration we have for you today!

First up is the most perfect pumpkin set (in my ever so humble opinion, of course).  Introducing…

PUMPKIN PATCH

PumpkinPatchS_ProductImage

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts…

PumpkinPatchCC_ProductImage

My first project today is really a set of four tags created using the new THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts die set on a couple of different projects.  On Periscope yesterday I was asked what my favorite product is of the new release.  I really do LOVE all of it (I wouldn’t release it if I didn’t), but I have to say I that I can’t stop playing with this new tag!!

We are heading into the season of pumpkin everything and gift giving.  I love making lil’ treats to give to friends, neighbors and teachers.  Here’s how I made this tag into a topper for these treats…

DSC05575

These are 2 of the 4 tags that I created using the THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts die set along with the PUMPKIN PATCH stamps and Confetti Cuts dies.  I attached them to kraft color paper straws (from Target last year) with hot glue and popped them into mason jars filled with fall colored Sixlet candies.

Detail shot…

DSC05582

The leaves, twigs and stem are all separate stamps and dies making this a fun set to play with and layer to get just the look you want!

DSC05580

For the other 2 tags, I paired them with the previously released, and ‘Fetti Fan favorite, SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die (holding a bag of the same Sixlet candies) to create this duo…

DSC05560

I love this sentiment!  Don’t you think these would be darling on a place setting at Thanksgiving?

Detail shot…

DSC05557

. . . . .

This next project feature the new PUMPKIN PATCH stamps and Confetti Cuts dies along with 2 more new Confetti Cuts die sets!

Introducing…

PRETTY PANELS: THANKFUL

PrettyPanelsThankfulCC_ProductImage

LEAFY

LeafyCC_ProductImage

For this card, I started with the PRETTY PANELS: THANKFUL Confetti Cuts die and then layered the pumpkin along with the LEAFY Confetti Cuts…

DSC05600

The edges of the white panel are distressed and then wonky stitched for texture and detail that didn’t take away from the main image panel.

Detail shot…

DSC05603

. . . . .

We received a wonderful response to our GOD IS GOOD set that we released earlier this year and have decided to continue with this line of faith based stamps with the new stamp set…

WALK BY FAITH

WalkByFaithS_ProductImage

. . . . .

I recently picked up a set of Kuretake Brush Pens and knew that they were a perfect pairing for this set.  I colored the THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts with blue and then stamped the “I Will Walk By Faith” sentiment in black.

DSC05614

Under the sentiment, I layered the new LEAFY Confetti Cuts, also colored with the Kuretake brush pen and a solid cardstock heart (LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts).  The white stitched and flag-ended panel is from the STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set…
