Time For a Card Tuesday

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

We are busy lil’ bees here in the Reverse Confetti office prepping for the next release.  Be sure to mark your calendars for our anniversary & biggest release yet….

It’s Tuesday and TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

I can’t seem to keep the PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp and Confetti Cuts dies off my desk!  I had a blast making this card (with a sentiment from LOTS TO SAY)…

FloralHappyBirthday

I started by stamping the “berries” on the base of the card and then added the stamped and die cut flowers and leaves.  The sentiment is stamped in navy, giving it a very preppy feel.

This floral ensemble was extremely easy to put together and I look forward to doing a few more cards like this to keep in my stash.   By switching out the sentiment, you can easily have cards for birthdays, weddings, sympathy, thank you and general note cards.

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on April 17, 2014

Hello and Happy Thursday, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Thursday and time for 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 wonderfully talented LEIGH PENNER

LeighIntroPic

Today, I have a card to share that I made combining two of my favourite sets:

Forever Fall & Lots to Say.

 LPCCApr14

I started with some a My Mind’s Eye patterned paper background.

I diecut a couple of banners using the small tag from Tag Me.

I did this by diecutting only the flagged end with the die and trimming out the rest of the banner

with my paper trimmer.

I repeated this process with some cardstock for the second banner, which I stamped

with the woodgrain pattern from Forever Fall.

In the same colour ink, I stamped the woodgrain heart (love this!) and trimmed it

out by hand.

I stamped my sentiment from Lots to Say and assembled my card,

adding a button and some twine as a finishing touch.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on April 09, 2014

Hey there ‘Fetti Fans!

Stop the presses…I got in some studio time and was able to create a fun tag set for this week’s WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS post.

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.

For this week’s segment, I want to chat about using the negative of a die cut, as well as adding some texture to your project.

Tags_Neg

I really had a lot of fun creating these tags and it was easy to whip up 4 of them that I can keep on hand and add to birthday gifts as needed.

First, I cut 4 large tags from white cardstock (TAG ME Confetti Cuts).

Second, I stamp the sentiment from LOTS TO SAY on the top portion of each tag.

Next, I used one of the large flowers from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set to cut out the flowers on each of the tags.

I then added burlap behind the flower cut and embellished with a flower and leaves from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set, along with enamel dots.

Tags_detail

Tags_detail1

I love the look and feel that the burlap adds to the negative space on these tags, especially in contrast to those enamel dots!

Since the back of the tag now had a small square of burlap adhered to it, I cut 4 more tags in coordinating pattern paper and attached them to the back to cover it.

WEEK IN REVERSE

Howdy, Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

TGIF!  I am ready for the weekend!  Are you?  (stupid question, huh?)

We have our first house guest in our new house and I am sure that we will be doing a little exploring in Houston this weekend.  Hopefully, I will have fun pics and such to share next week.  I may just duck into the studio to create a thing or two, as well. (crossing fingers)

Well, being that it is Friday, it is time for the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a look back on what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.  Many of them posted for the new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY.  You can see that post HERE, as well as all the info on how you can enter to win.

. . . . .

Amy is just too clever!  She used the coffee oval from BE A BARISTA to create this awesome pattern.  She paired it will a simple sentiment from our everyday sentiment set, LOTS TO SAY, to create a perfectly unique any time card…

3.27.14

Lisa created this fun card for a “put a bird on it” using CARTON CUTIES, CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again…Heather never fail to WOW with our PEACOCK PRETTIES set!  I love the pattern that she created and the sweet sentiment from ALL ABOUT YOU compliments it perfectly.

Sarah is featured on this week’s episode of Iron Craft.  I love her card using BE A BARISTA and the ARROW Confetti Cuts!

Have a great weekend, and as always…

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

I hope everyone has fun weekend plans ahead.  It’s more of the same here for the del Muro household…these boxes just will not end!  Of course, a little exploring time and R&R are most definitely in the works, as well as some time to GET INKY!  I had a chance to create yesterday and it felt so good to play again!  I’ll be sharing what I made next week.

Right now it’s time to take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has done this week in the WEEK IN REVERSE.

Lisa did a great job of combining sets to create this fun, sports themed card.

ALL ABOUT YOU, PETALS ‘N POSIES, BEAUTIFUL BANNERS

Val had fun mixing and matching a variety of Confetti Cuts die sets to create this darling journal for a lil’ friend of hers.

TAG ME, PETALS ‘N POSIES, OFFICE EDGES, LOVE NOTE, WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

Val also created this card that I am swooning over!

PETALS ‘N POSIES, PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, ALL ABOUT YOU, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

Leigh’s card is so soft and elegant.  I love the multi-colored feather.

With Teacher Appreciate just around the corner, Amber is the perfect muse with this card!

Sarah’s card is a showstopper!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Welcome to 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.

As noted last week, a few of the Confetti Crew design team members will be guest blogging here.  Today, we welcome Lisa Henke to the Wednesday in the Works post.

Trends. They are a fun way to add some extra pizazz to your stamps and supplies. Especially simple, sentiments. I used three trends on my card today along with  the LOTS TO SAY stamp set.  I used two of the sentiments to create this custom thank you note.

rc-wed works thanks-2

I love that stencils and modeling paste (or embossing paste) are trending right now. I pulled out a dotty stencil to make a custom backdrop for my sentiment.

You’ll want to make sure to secure your stencil over top of your card stock and before swiping some Modeling Paste (you can find it in any craft or art store). I used an old credit card or gift card to apply my paste, an off-set spatula works great, too. For an extra bit of depth and interest, I did move my stencil just a little bit when I applied the paste to create the ghosting effect. Set this panel aside to dry.

wedworks-stencil

I also love the angled panels I’ve been seeing on lots of cards across blog land. It adds great visual interest to any card. Cut a rectangle panel, angle it off the side and bottom (or top, depending on where you want the angle to be) of your card base and then use your trimmer to snip off the overhang.

rc-wed works thanks detail

The final trend so hot right now are sequins. They are just the sweetest little embellishments and with all the different color choices your options are endless. I used the Rule of Three on my card and added a trio of sequin clusters across  my card front.

I used the sentiment flag from TAG ME Confetti Cuts to pop up the ” just a note” stamp. Keeping the sentiment simple, really allows the trendy items to shine!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you feel inspired to try one or all of these paper crafting trends.
