Hello and TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

expo

I hope you all have some fun weekend activities planned.  If you are local, be sure to stop by The Little Blue House booth at the Scrapbook Expo for a Reverse Confetti Make-n-Take on Saturday between 10-1.  See you there!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and time for Week in Reverse where we take a peek back at what the fabulous designers that make up the Confetti Crew have been up to with their Reverse Confetti stamps!

Heather knows how to rock clean and simple.  I love the details and textures used here.

PEACOCK PRETTIES, LOTS TO SAY

I just love Amy’s use of a variety of coloring mediums on her card.

DREAM IN COLOR, SO STRIPEY

Such a fun design and color combo from Lisa!

The new color challenge is live!  What will you make for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store?  Click on the graphic on the sidebar for all details and link list.  Here are some awesome samples to kick-start your creativity using this color palette.

I was amazed how many sets that Sarah used to create this fabulous card.  I love that it’s so easy to mix and match Reverse Confetti stamps (and, yes, we do that on purpose)!

Lisa card is just so…foxy! (sorry, had to)

FREIDA FOX, PAPER CRANE, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts

It’s amazing how differently people use this color palette.  I love the darker base of this card from Stacey…makes the light blue and cranberry just POP!

GO TOGETHER, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts

In contrast, Leigh’s lighter base is equally as powerful…and beautiful!

Time For a Card Tuesday

By admin
on February 18, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Tuesday!

A quick update on how everything is going here on the relocation front…To sum it up, slow and well.  I feel like we are in a hurry up and wait pattern and I know that this will continue for the next several of weeks.  Because this is a relocation, there are movers coming to pack us up just days before our world belongings are loaded up into a truck and whisked away to Houston (Cypress, to be exact).  Having moved many times, I feel like I have the packing process down and this time I am told to sit tight and they will do everything for me.  Let’s just say that the OCD side of me is going into overdrive just a bit!  The inspection on the house in Cypress is today.  Crossing my fingers we didn’t pick a lemon!  The inspection on our current home went well (YAY) and now I just need to keep the kids from causing any damage, etc.

Because things are so hectic here, I had to wave the white flag and call in reinforcements.  I’d love to say that we have family close by that will come get the kids when things get crazy, but we don’t.  I have great friends and neighbors that are helping out where they can I am so incredibly thankful to have them in our lives and for their assistance.  My “other” family is the design team (I seriously LOVE them) and they are coming to my aid and will be taking over a few posts here and there on the Reverse Confetti blog.  Don’t worry, I’m not falling off the face of the earth.  I’m working behind the scenes to get everything prepped and ready for both the big move and our biggest release yet on MARCH 8th!

. . . . .

Well since it is Tuesday that means it’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  I love this month’s colors for the February Color Challenge (click on graphic on sidebar for all details) and created this card using the cranberry, light blue and gray color palette along with the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and LOTS TO SAY stamp set to create this clean and simple card…

AlwaysAndForeverCard

This card came together very easily.  I started by cutting out the scalloped rectangle from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and then cut out the large heart (also from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts) from the center.  I used a solid strip of cranberry and light blue cardstock, as well as a piece of gray (w/ hearts) pattern paper to bring in the colors from the challenge.  While I was playing around with this panel, I thought that bringing in the neutral, kraft, would make the colors pop and did so by adding linen thread tied off with a wooden button and the kraft panel at the bottom (stamped with a sentiment from LOTS TO SAY).  I rounded the bottom corner to tie in with the softer lines of the scalloped panel.

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!

It has been a whirlwind of a week over here!  As I noted yesterday, change is upon our family…we are moving!  I’m going to take you on this journey with me.  I won’t have updates everyday, nor will I bore you with every minute detail,  but I’ll be keeping you in the loop and hope that you will share your experiences, too.  For those of you that are interested…we are moving to Houston, TX because of my hubby’s job.  Fortunately, I can do Reverse Confetti from just about anywhere, so nothing is changing (other than location) here.

So, as of today, we in contract to purchase a home in Houston.  I am a bit nervous as the inspection report came back with a few (big) red flags.  This was to be expected, as we are purchasing a home that is a little older.  Hopefully, we can come to an agreement on what needs to be done.  I’ll know more next week when we have area specialists review the inspection report and the home.  Wish us luck!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and time for WEEK IN REVERSE! The Confetti Crew has been busy this week creating cards and projects that are sure to inspire!

Val is so super clever!  I love this magnetic board to hold dies so they don’t get lost in the paper crafty craziness that I know happens on everyone’s desks!

PAPER CRANE, TAG ME Confetti Cuts

Like me, Susan, is in the process of moving.  This cute card is a sweet depiction of how her family is in between three homes right now…

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Wow…Friday already!  This week has flown by! Anyone else ready for the weekend? We are having my lil’ man’s birthday party this weekend.  It’s a Batman theme and most of the RSVPs have been girls.  Looks like I’m going to be figuring out a way to incorporate some pink here and there for this party…good thing that comes naturally to me!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and it’s time for WEEK IN REVERSE…where we take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Val’s own (not so) lil’ (anymore) man had a birthday this week and this is the fabulous card that she created for him.

SO STRIPEY, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS, TAG ME Confetti Cuts

CHA was wonderful and I am so glad that I got to share a lot of the time there with two of the Confetti Crew team members: Stacey Schafer and Amy Kolling.  Stacey made these super darling burlap sacks filled with a personalized stamp for each of us.  How sweet is that!?

SWEET THING, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, ARROW Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts

Lisa really made me say, “Awww” out loud when I saw this over the top cute (and foxy!) card.

FREIDA FOX, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts

Here’s another one of Lisa’s cards with a much more masculine feel to it.

LOTS TO SAY, CELEBRATE CAKE, LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS, INNER ROCK STAR

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on December 31, 2013

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

I am back in the studio creating and it feels so good!  After a little bit of down time, it was kind of hard to find my groove, but I am glad I did!  Right now, I am working on cards and projects for our upcoming release.  I am so excited for this release (and every release) that I can hardly contain myself.  You may just get a little sneak peek tomorrow on the SFYTT post (which will be combined with a super fun hop, too!).

. . . . .

I spent a little time in the studio last week (in my pajamas!) and created this 4.25″ square card for TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

ThanksCard

This card uses the ever-so-versatile set, LOTS TO SAY along with the large tag from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.

If you are anything like me, you can’t get your hands on enough Thank You cards this time of year!  I had the kiddos writing theirs a couple of days ago.  My almost four year old smacked his head and said, “Another one!?!” each time I put a card in front of him to sign.  We got them all done.  Now Mommy (who me!?) just needs to address them, get a stamp on them and send them on their way.

I wanted to keep this card simple (and reproducible), but have a little bit of a feminine touch.  I cut out one of the tag from a doily and then topped it with another one (top cut off) with the stamped sentiment.  The enamel dots match the coral corrugated paper (picked up from my local scrapbook store).

ThanksCard_detail

So long for 2013, see you in the new year!

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Please note, next week we will not be blogging and the Reverse Confetti office will be closed December 24-26 so that we may cherish time snuggled on the couch with hot cocoa, kiddos and “Elf.”  I hope that you will find yourself doing much of the same…or at least the like.  Reverse Confetti wishes you and your families the very best of the holidays.  May it all be fun, festive and free from stress!

. . . . .

TGIF and it’s time for WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek at all the fun and creative projects that the Confetti Crew has put together this week!

Lisa is certainly in the holiday spirit!

Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans!

Our December Color Challenge is now live and we’d love for you to come play along for a chance to win!  There’s a $20 gift certificate up for grabs, too!  Scroll down to yesterday’s post or click on the color challenge graphic on the sidebar for all the details.

This month’s colors…

Dec13Graphic

. . . . .

It’s Tuesday and TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  Today’s card features this month’s colors along with the SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts and the LOTS TO SAY and WHOLE LOTTA DOTS stamp sets…

ColorChallengeCard

The big dots from the WHOLE LOTTA DOTS set were stamped in red first and then topped with white pigment ink on the panel cut from the SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die.  I have stamped white pigment ink and then colored ink on the top, but this is the first time that I have done the reverse.  I love the way it looks!  It also brings in a bit of pink without actually stamping pink (how’s that for a happy ‘accident’?)…

ColorChallengeCard_1

What will you do with these colors?  I love the Christmas feel that these colors have together, but wanted to do something a little different…and I’m hooked on this “just a note to say…” sentiment, so it was easy to move away from the seasonal feel of the colors and create a more general note card.

WEEK IN REVERSE

on December 06, 2013

Hello and TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

I’m writing this post on Thursday evening as I listen to a light pitter patter against my windows only to look outside to see that it’s raining…ice.  Yes, ice is just falling out of the sky… and accumulating on the ground (eek!).  Needless to say, there may be a slight shipping delay.  Fortunately, living in North Texas also means that this kind of stuff doesn’t hang around for too long (thank goodness!).  We appreciate your patience and will be processing and shipping orders as fast as Mother Nature allows us.

. . . . .

Being that it is Friday, it’s time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek at what the fantastically talented CONFETTI CREW has been up to this week…

I love how Val incorporated Reverse Confetti stamps into her scrapping projects.  (Our stamps are designed for all your paper crafting projects).

Forever Fall, Whole Lotta Dots, Arrows ‘n Elements, So Stripey

Savannah always has a unique take on the SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  I love her elements that she used where the circles are shown on the sketch…a perfect way to make it her own!

Arrows ‘n Elements, Forever Fall, Celebrate Cake

Stacey is just one of the Confetti Crew designers that has take the Sweet Treat Confetti Cuts die and turned it into a panel on a card…such a fun idea and a great way to get the most use out of your Confetti Cuts dies!

Tinsel ‘n Trim, Bring on the Merry, Sweet Treat Tent Confetti Cuts

Lisa also used the Sweet Treat Tent as a panel on this gorgeous Christmas card.
