WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By Jen del Muro
on May 20, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome the latest edition of WEDNESDAY OF 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, Confetti Crew member, Sarah Gough, shows you how to create a fun summer inspired project.  You are going to love the video she has come up with for you!

The weather is cooling down here in New Zealand, so it’s a good time for some summer escapism with the fab LET’S CHILL stamp set and LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts. I’ll show you how I make an icy popsicle…and let you in on the silly name we have for these summer treats downunder! I’m also making a fun messy background that features the Color Me Happy Stamp Set.

ANNOUNCING…

By admin
on June 30, 2014

Hello and Happy Monday, ‘Fetti Fans!

I’m still shaking my head that today is Monday and that tomorrow is the first!

I have some super special (and FUN!) announcements to make today.

First, I would like to introduce the newest member of the Challenge Crew, Jessica Fick

JessicaFickIntro

A little about our newest team member…

I’m so honored to be joining the Reverse Confetti Crew Challenge team!  I love all things paper crafting related: stamps, dies, scrap booking, patterned papers, twines, ribbons, markers, etc… the list could go on and on!  I’m not sure if I have a favorite crafty style but rather enjoy dabbling in everything just a bit to keep the creative juices flowing.  I’ve been privileged to be part of some amazing design teams over the past 5+ years that I’ve been stamping. I love getting to know our online paper crafting community and collecting items for my crafty stash along the way!

 My husband Brad (of 18 years) is my biggest supporter and encourager.  We have two great kids, Isaiah and Ashley, who are a true delight and joy to our family.  I teach K4-1st grade in a small private Christian school during the day and get as much crafty time as I can during my limited free time.

. . . . .

In addition to that super awesome announcement, I also would like to announce the winner of the June Color Challenge.  But first, let me thank everyone that played along.  What wonderful entries there were, as always!

Congrats to…

ColorWinner

Here is her fabulous, fun and colorful card using SO STRIPEY, DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts (will be back in stock soon) and the LET’S CHILL stamp set with the coordinating LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts…

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on June 26, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Just a quick reminder…

SaleGraphic

 . . . . .

Time for another fun and fabulous 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 we have a project from the uber talented, KATHY MARTIN

KathyMartinIntro

Hey Confetti Fans! I’ve got a colorful happy card to share with you today using the LABEL ME and LET’S CHILL stamp sets along with the LABEL ME and LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts.

140514-Hey-Sweetie-II

Once I decided on these yummy popsicle stamps and polka dotted papers, I ran with a circle theme. To create this card I first cut a white piece of card stock to 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ and folded it in half for my card base. Then I cut the black background paper to 5 1/4″ by 3 3/4″, added a few die cut circles in it and attached it to the card base with foam mounting tape to for dimension. With more foam tape I layered on the popsicles and sentiments.

140514-Hey-Sweetie-Detailst

Finishing touches include a little craft string bow and enamel dots. Notice how the dots are partially tucked under the background paper? This accentuates the layers. Yummy!

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

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on June 04, 2014

Hello and Happy Wednesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Anyone else counting down the last days of school…followed by “I think I can, I think I can”?  Tell me I’m not the only one! While I absolutely love this time of year it’s definitely the home stretch of a marathon!  I love summer and am looking forward to playing in the pool, doing fun science experiments (a la Pinterest) and getting crafty!  I’ll be documenting it all here, so be sure to stay tuned!

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’s topic is none other than our fabulous and fun June SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY.  If you missed the post from last week introducing the post, here is the sketch once more…

SFYTT13_Jun14

You’ll find all the details about the sketch and how to enter your creation HERE, or just click on the SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY button on our sidebar.

I’ve been having a lot of fun using the LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts and LET’S CHILL stamp set…

MeltMyHeart

For the long rectangular panel behind the circle, I used 2 TAG ME Confetti Cuts die cuts.  I added the large side scallops from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER for detail under the sentiment panel.

Detail shot (anyone else craving lime popsicles?)…

MeltMyHeart_detail

To create the dimension on the popsicles, I cut out 4 popsicles (2 from each pattern paper) and then cut out the center lines (which can be separated on your die set) on 2 of the popsicles.  I mounted the popsicles that had the center lines cut out on dimensional adhesive over the solid popsicles.

Gotta keep this short and sweet today.  See you tomorrow for another great Confetti Camera post you won’t wanna miss!

A LITTLE OF THIS, A LITTLE OF THAT & A CARD…

By admin
on May 13, 2014

Hello and Happy Tuesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s still sinking in that this adventure started over a year ago and that we just had our first release of our SECOND year.  From the time that I started Reverse Confetti, I said that I never wanted to be the biggest, I just wanted to do and be the best.  Of course, the first year presented a few learning opportunities, plenty of fun, lots of creativity and tons of moments where I sat back and thought about how thankful I am that I get to share my passion in this format.  Of course, I wouldn’t be sitting back and reviewing the past year in awe without YOU!  Our customers/’Fetti Fans are amazing!  Thank you all for such a wonderful first year…here’s to many more!

. . . . .

Our next order of business today is pretty “FAB!”  Did you see?…we’re the featured company over on MOXIE FAB WORLD this week.  I’m just *a wee bit* excited Teri featuring us.  Thanks, Teri!!

Here’s a pic of the Moxie Fab Teri, along with me and Freida Fox and the CHA Winter show this year…

. . . . .

A little of this.  A little of that.  Now, a card!

It’s Tuesday and TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY.  I am really digging the watercolor trend that is in full swing right now.  My Facebook feed is flooded with images of “homework” from a class that I just know that I should signed up for.  No time for classes at the moment, but I gave watercoloring a go on my own for this card using the new LET’S CHILL stamps set and LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts..

MeltMyHeart

The popsicles are done in ombre watercolor.  When I created this, I didn’t have any watercolors other than my kid’s Crayola ones (with colors are mixed together), so I opted for using my Tombow markers.  I colored on a plastic plate and then picked up the ink using an aqua-painter.  I saturated the (watercolor) paper in yellow and then brushed upward to get an ombre effect…perfect for these popsicles!  I just love the way it came out!

MeltMyHeart_1

As you can see, the top portion of the popsicle has the center lines cut out.  I then popped this up on a solid popsicle (light yellow) for added dimension.  I kept the embellishments simple…sequins with rhinestones and washi tape, as I really wanted the popsicles to take center stage.

I’ll be experimenting a little more with watercolors, too.  I just picked up a Kuretake Gansai Tambi set of 24 from Amazon.  WOW, these colors are amazing!  Vibrant and rich.  I need to get used to them, as these aren’t your kid’s Crayolas!…and when I do, good things are to come of it!  If anyone else has this set, I’d love to hear your take on it or see what you have created with it!
