As you know, Fridays are generally a re-cap of what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.  They sneaked behind my back (!!) and put together an AWESOME birthday hop for yours truly.  I’m not going to be posting all their cards here today, as I would love for you to go through the whole hop if you have not already.  It starts HERE on Stacey’s blog.

I do have a few more cards to share with you not featured on the hop…

AUGUST CREATIVE HOP

By admin
on August 08, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Friday!

Usually on Friday we take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week in the WEEK IN REVERSE.

However, today is the 8th and we ALWAYS hop on the 8th…remember: Eight is Great, so we have a bunch of new projects to share with you!  On today’s hop you are going to see fun ways to use your Reverse Confetti stamps and dies and many of us will be highlighting how to create your own background paper.

The entire hop order is listed later in this post in case of any breaks.

Don’t forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Comments close Monday at 5pm CST and the winner will be announced on the TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY post next week.  Good luck and happy hopping!

. . . . .

As I mentioned above, you will see many of the Confetti Crew and ‘Fetti Friends creating their own pattern paper using Reverse Confetti Stamps on our blog hop today.  The reason why I chose this “theme” is because it’s something that I really loved doing when I first got into stamping “a few” ago and I love connecting with those “roots” from time to time.  That’s also one of the reasons that we have background building sets.  Don’t get me wrong, I love (printed) pattern paper, but I also love being able to create my own.

HopCard1

For my project today, I stamped the large dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS on kraft paper with white pigment ink.  I then cut out 3 hearts using the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set from this “pattern paper.”

HopCard

I added these 3 hearts to my white on white panels stamped with the “thanks so much” sentiment from LOTS TO SAY.  While I think that kraft, black and white are great colors together, this card needed a little pop of color!  I added the small aqua heart (LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts) and 3 different color enamel dots.  I love how this card is clean and simple, yet has just the perfect pop of color!

HopCard2

. . . . .

Alright, I won’t keep you here any longer as there is so much more creativity to see today on our hop!

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

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

TIME FOR A CARD (OR THREE TAGS) TUESDAY

By admin
on June 17, 2014

Happy Tuesday ‘Fetti Fans!

On Tuesday, I usually have a card for the TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY post, but I’m mixing it up a little and today I have 3 coordinating tags to share with you.

These 3 tags all use this month’s COLOR CHALLENGE that was introduced yesterday.  I hope that you will play along with this fabulous color palette!

Click on image for more details…

June14ColorChallenge

Here’s what I came up with using this fun and fresh color combo…

ColorTags

To create these tags, I started with a white tag cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.  I also cut tags from yellow cardstock and used the bottom inch of those on top of the white tag bases.  I also used the yellow on the enforcer ring at the top of the tag.  The banner strip in the center of the tag is cut from aqua cardstock with the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set and then stamped and embossed with the thick stripes from the SO STRIPEY stamp set.  I love the subtle texture that this embossing brings to these tags.  Each of the tags is stamped with the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from LOTS TO SAY and then I embellished each one differently.

The first one has an apple and leaf on it from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set.  I cut 2 apples and popped one up for added dimension.  (I actually did that on all the tags with their respective die cut embellishments).

ColorTags2

This tag has the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set, along with some red rhinestones…

ColorTags1

I saved my favorite for last.  I just love this tag with the stars from OH MY STARS.  When creating these tags, I had 3 people in mind: a teacher (apple), my daughter (heart with bling) and my son who lives and breathes stars, stripes and superheroes (just like this tag)…

CONFETTI CAMERA

Hello and Happy Thursday!

Day 3 of summer was interesting, to say the least.  It included catching a garden snake and explaining what two “hugging” lizards were doing on our bricks.  I’ll spare you a pic of the hugging, but here’s the slithery friend I found wandering in the garden yesterday along with a lizard going solo…

DSC01267

DSC01285

It’s a good thing I was a tomboy growing up, because I don’t think that I could hack it otherwise.

In addition to catching critters, we managed to squeeze in a little crafty time this week, too.  Here’s a pic of the glitter bottles we did…

DSC01228

There are a variety of recipes for these out there.  I found that distilled water (warm to get glue to dissolve faster), plus glitter glue and a few extra sparkles was the best combination.

As for the rest of this week…I still need to come up with a Father’s Day project for Tony and squeeze in a science project, too!

. . . . .

I love sharing bits of me here on the Reverse Confetti blog, but I am guessing that you came here to see what’s been happening in paper and ink!

Since it’s Thursday it’s time for another fun installment of 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, the spotlight is on the super-mom, super-stamper, LAURIE SCHMIDLIN

Little Baby by Laurie Schmidlin

Inspired by…

Screen Shot 2014-06-10 at 4.01.17 PM

One evening while getting my little guy ready for bed, it struck me how super cute his sleeper was! That may seem odd, but I had never before really looked at the color combo before. I immediately thought that it would make a pretty cute card! I also thought that the whale reminded me of the whale in the HAPPY HARBOR set! I used the exact colors of the sleeper (navy and mint) to create this baby boy card, but you could easily swap out the colors for a more girly card! I embossed the whale using white embossing powder (I really wanted it to stand out on the navy cardstock) and I stamped the baby sentiment (from the LOTS TO SAY set) using navy ink. That’s it! A quick card perfect for a baby gift or even mass producing for baby announcement/thank you cards!

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
