Confetti Camera

By Jen del Muro
on January 14, 2016

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans!

Jen here and I am excited to be back from CHA with a renewed creative energy that will sure translate into more wonderful things for Reverse Confetti.  We have been working tirelessly to get all of the orders from the release out the door.  Keep an eye on those mailboxes, as your new RC goodies should be there very soon…if not already!

This is the final day for this round of Confetti Camera.  A new round begins in just a couple of weeks.  We hope that you have enjoyed the “Set ’em Up” projects that the fabulous Confetti Crew designers have shared with you.

ConfettiCameraRCblog

A little bit about 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 each of our designers will be coming up with a SET of something. You’ll see gift sets, card sets, pocket scrapping sets and much more this time around.

A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will follow the same theme 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.

. . . . .

In the spotlight today is the lovely and talented, Heather Pulvirenti…

Heather

Hi ‘Fetti Fans! Heather P. here today with my take on the “Set ’em Up” theme.  For my project today, I’ve created two mini-sets of Project Life cards using most of the items from January’s release, as well as some of my favorite go-to dies from prior releases.

011416

To create my cards, I started by die cutting all of the QCPs from both sets with the large rectangle die from the Documented Confetti Cuts.  Once that was done, I started cutting the elements to use on the first set of cards:

Purple Card – heart strip from Love Note Confetti Cuts, die cut sentiment from Lovey Words Confetti Cuts

Gray Card – penguin, hearts and sentiment from S’more Love and S’more Love Confetti Cuts, white frame from Stamped Note Confetti Cuts

011416CU1

Teal Card – solid heart from Love Note Confetti Cuts, outline heart from Stamped Note Confetti Cuts, stamped sentiment from Lovey Words Coordinates, die cut sentiment from Lovey Words Confetti Cuts, scallop border from Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts

The penguin, hat and hearts were first stamped in Versafine ink onto watercolor card stock, then heat set with clear embossing powder.  I then colored the images with watercolor markers and set them aside to dry.  While I was waiting for the images to dry, I assembled the first set of cards as shown.  Once the images were dry, they were cut out with their coordinating Confetti Cuts and attached to the gray card front.

I then die cut the elements to use on the second set of cards:

Orange Card – frame from Love Note Confetti Cuts, die cut sentiment from Lovey Word Confetti Cuts, heart from Stamped Note Confetti CutsDiagonal Stripe Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts

Pink Card – penguin, fire and marshmallow from S’more Love and S’more Love Confetti CutsHeart Tag Toppers Confetti CutsStraight Stripes Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts

011416CU2

Yellow Card – Circles ‘n ScallopsLabeledGive Thanks Label Confetti CutsLayered Laurel Confetti Cuts

The penguin, hat, marshmallow and fire were first stamped in Versafine ink onto watercolor card stock, then heat set with clear embossing powder.  I then colored the images with watercolor markers and set them aside to dry.  While I was waiting for the images to dry, I assembled the second set of cards as shown.  Once the images were dry, they were cut out with their coordinating Confetti Cuts and attached to the pink card front.

Well, that wraps it up for me today, but be sure to come back tomorrow for more Reverse Confetti inspiration!

CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS: GIFT GIVING

By Jen del Muro
on November 11, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to our second day of CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS!

Today, we are filling you up with inspirational GIFT GIVING ideas!

CrazyForChristmas_2GiftGiving

. . . . .

I think that we can all relate to food related gifts when it comes to the holidays.  I know that I seem to both give and receive plenty of them, and that is why I chose to do a food related item for our GIFT GIVING segment of CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS.

I love to bake and give cookies and breads and that is where this idea started.  However, I do have to admit that I ran a little short on time and had to actually buy the loaf of bread that is featured below.  It is “fresh baked,” just not by yours truly…

DSC06012

I wrapped the bread (baked at a local bakery) in parchment paper.  I had planned to tape down the edges of the parchment paper and simply put the wrap around it.  Well, I learned something…nothing sticks to parchment paper.  I tried 5 different tapes before throwing my hands in the air in need of having to coming up with plan B to keep the parchment paper actually on the bread.  This problem lead to a great (in my humble opinion) design solution…CAPPUCCINO TWINE wrapped around the the loaf of bread 3 times.  After the twine (and the parchment paper) were securely in place, I added the belly band…

DSC06013

The belly band consist of a few different pieces:

-a kraft strip of cardstock that is run through the paper crimper (again, yes, I still own one of those!)

-a cream strip of cardstock that is stamped repeatedly with the “Fresh Baked” sentiment from the new “WITH LOVE” stamp set

-a large wreath created from 2 cuts of the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set

-an embellishment consisting of the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set, a button tied off with CAPPUCCINO TWINE and jingle bells and the “with love” sentiment from the WITH LOVE stamp set

DSC06028

DSC06029

Whether you are baking or buying your bread/treats this year, this is a fun and easy way to dress up the packaging and make it more personal.

. . . . .

Of course, we have even more inspiration waiting for you!

CHECK THIS OUT

By Jen del Muro
on August 19, 2015

Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans!

Reverse Confetti, along with a ton of other sponsors have joined up with FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES to celebrate their 200th sketch celebration!

Check it out HERE!

Of course, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play along, too.

Here’s the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches…

FMS Final 200

And, my take on it…

FMSCard

I stamped the “Hello Sunshine” sentiment from the SHINE BRIGHT stamp set and then colored it in a gradient with Copics.

To embellish, I used the SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set…

FMSCard1

The clouds are double layered.  The top layer is white and I went ahead and added some flock to them.  Who doesn’t love fluff white clouds?  I matted them with aqua clouds.  To tie in the aqua color with the rest of the card, I added the aqua ribbon to the top.  As you can see, the sun is also double layered and the heart on top is from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

As a finishing touch, I added the sequins.  It’s “funny”…I have 14 million (slight exaggeration) sequin colors and I reach for the clear ones…every.single.time.  Am I the only one?

FMSCard2

You’ll get more sketch and Reverse Confetti inspiration from these gals today…

I just love our birthday release!  It’s been a blast to play with and I know that I will find myself reaching for these products over and over again.

My first project that I have to share with you uses the CIRCLE SENTIMENTS, the coordinating SCALLOPED CIRCLE and STAR GARLAND Confetti Cuts dies…

BabyCard

I added the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER across the card to tie in the green of the stamped sentiment.

The STAR GARLAND Confetti Cuts was used as a white on white detail on the circle (cut from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set).  It’s such a subtle detail, but I love what it brings to this card.

BabyCard1

. . . . .

My second card today also features the new CIRCLE SENTIMENTS stamp set along with the new limited edition LET’S CELEBRATE Quick Card Panels and STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts dies…

ThanksCircle

This card literally came together in about 5 minutes…gotta love quick and easy, yet still eye catching!

Detail shot…

ThanksCircle1

. . . . .

Can I just say that I absolutely LOVE the new PARTY HATS stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts die set!?

Here, I paired them with the new STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set, FANCY WORD COORDINATES stamps, GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND, LOVE NOTE (heart) and DOCUMENTED (rounded rectangle) Confetti Cuts dies.

PartyHatsCard

I can’t stop creating fringe detail, either!  If you missed the how-to on this, you can see it HERE on day one of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI.

Detail shot…

. . . . .

I have one more project to share with you and this one may just be my favorite from this release.  It’s actually the first project that I made for the sneak peeks/hop and I’m pretty pleased this was how I got my creative juices flowing.

*LOVE* this quote from the new GOD IS GOOD stamp set…

Shine

Detail shots…

Shine1

In addition to the new GOD IS GOOD stamp set, I also used the new STITCHED FLAG TRIO, PETALS ‘N POSIES and PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts and the DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP Confetti Cuts dies.

This was originally created to go into a frame, but then I couldn’t find the frame that I was searching for so I went with sticking it on a card front and calling it done.

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: Fancy Words

By Jen del Muro
on April 07, 2015

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s the third and final day of our COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!

All of the new products…5 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts die sets and the new *limited edition* Piña Colada Quick Card Panels… will be available in the store tonight at midnight EST.  We still have a couple of more product introductions to share with you today and don’t forget to get those comments in for a chance to win!

. . . . .

As you may know, I love to mix and match my stamps and Confetti Cuts dies with each other.  With that concept in mind, I wanted to develop an all word/sentiment stamp and Confetti Cuts die combination.  These two products work fabulously together and, of course, play nicely with many of our other stamp and Confetti Cuts die sets.

Introducing…

FANCY WORDS

FancyWords

And…

FANCY WORD COORDINATES

FancyWordCoordinatesProductGraphic

. . . . .

My first card that I have to share with you today, features the new FANCY WORD Confetti Cuts and the coordinating stamp set, as well as, the new SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set (I told you this one wasn’t leaving my desk **wink**).

Shaker1

I created the shaker box using the medium and large rounded squares from the SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set and then added in some confetti die cuts (part of the die set) and mini sequins.  From there, I embellished the outside of the shaker box with the word “friend” from the new FANCY WORDS Confetti Cuts, a banner from the new LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts die set and a  heart from the (previously released, and very loved) LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

ShakerDetail

The stamped sentiment “i can always count on you” is stamped under the shaker box in VersaFine ink.  To “frame” the shaker box I added a strip of gray cardstock to both the top and bottom of the card base.

Shaker2

. . . . .

I just know that I am going to get a ton of use out of this “birthday” word and sentiment combination!

Birthday1

The white paint/black stripes Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANEL was the *perfect* backdrop for the banner created with the new LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts die set (stars from OH MY STARS).

Birthday3

I added the word “birthday” in mint green and then stamped the “let’s celebrate” sentiment right beneath it.

Birthday2

. . . . .

My third and final card today features the FANCY WORD Confetti Cuts dies and coordinating stamp set along with “stripes” made from the new COLOR ME HAPPY stamp set and (previously released) LOVE BLOOMS stamp and Confetti Cuts dies.

I love how this entire card came out…

Thanks1

This card really came together quite quickly, making it an “in the pocket” design that I’ll be holding onto for when I need a fast thank you (I know you’ve been there, too).  Of course, it will work for any of the sentiment combinations available with the FANCY WORDS Confetti Cuts dies and stamp set sentiment combinations.  Just switch out the colors and embellishments to personalize for your needs.

Thanks2

. . . . .

Enough of my stuff…it’s time to see what the fabulous Confetti Crew has come up with to share with you today using these great new products!

Just a reminder…all of the new goodies will be available tonight at midnight EST and we’ll be hopping tomorrow for one more dose of “Confetti Creativity” with all the new stuff.

. . . . .

Grab that cuppa joe, because here we go!

I love the look of paint on my paper crafting projects, but sometimes it’s just not all that practical or I just want something a little quicker (and easier).  Enter…

COLOR ME HAPPY

ColorMeHappyProductGraphic

This set is filled with paint swashes and splatters, as well as a couple of sentiments.  The “hello” sentiment was also made into a Confetti Cuts die (same size)…

Hello

HelloCCProductGraphic

I created a set of 3 mini cards using the template you can find HERE using these 2 new products together…

HelloPaintTrio

I stamped the paint swash from COLOR ME HAPPY in aqua and then added the olive green splatters.  I then adhered the HELLO Confetti Cuts die cut, with centers attached in the letters.  As a finishing touch, I added 3 gold sequins.

This clean and simple trio is going to make a great gift set!

HelloPaint1

 . . . . .

While I don’t intend to put the above cards in the box featured in this next project, it would be perfect for sweet cards sets just like it!

I love packaging.  There I said it.

Actually, that is no secret, as I love creating Confetti Cuts dies to make cute packages and such. I also love collecting (ahem, hoarding) other types of packaging and I have been collecting (ahem, hoarding) this particular box just waiting for the perfect opportunity to dress it up.  I saw it as I was looking through my drawers prepping for this release and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!

HappyThoughtsBox

I started with one of the Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANELS (love these panels!!) and then layered it with the largest rounded square from the new SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts set (this die set is never leaving my desk).  The sentiment is stamped in dark pink and then I stamped the swash over each word after I stamped off one time in the same color ink.

HappyTHoughtsbox2

I added the heart (cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set) and a few gold sequins as embellishments.

My favorite embellishment on here is the tassel cut from the new TASSEL Confetti Cuts die.  I added some gold curling ribbon to tie in with the gold sequins.  Viola…super easy and cute gift packaging!

HappyThoughtsBox3

. . . . .

I’ve had so much fun inking up this next set!  It’s a sentiment set that I know I will find myself reaching for over and over because I love giving uplifting cards.  These sentiments are perfect for all those upcoming graduations, or just to let someone know that you care and are cheering for them.

Introducing…

SHINE FROM WITHIN

ShineFromWithinProductGraphic

SHINE FROM WITHIN goes great with the new GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die.  Before I had either one in my hands, I already had sketches done of how I wanted to use them together!

Here’s my first card pairing the two…

FromWithin

To make this card, I created an A2 card base.  I then cut 1 piece of patterned paper and one piece of black cardstock to A2 size, too.  I adhered the patterned paper to the card base and then cut the GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die from the piece of black cardstock.  I layered both the negative of the die cut, and the GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die cut on top of the patterned paper.

I then stamped the sentiment on coordinating patterned paper, matted it with black cardstock and adhered it to the card with dimensional adhesive.  Finally, I added some clear sequins (I keep reaching for sequins, don’t I!).

Detail shot…

FromWithin1

. . . . .

My final project for today is a card that features the new SHINE FROM WITHIN stamp set.

As you can see, I didn’t go for the clean and simple look here.  I had a good time playing with lots of layers…

DreamBig1

This sentiment is the perfect size to be paired with the large tag in the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.

DreamBig2

When I thought I was all done with the card, I kept looking at it and thinking, “This needs something.” You know that feeling, right?  It looks fine, but it’s just not all the way done.  That’s how it was for me and then I added the scalloped detail (cut from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die) and the 3 black enamel pearls to the left of the tag.

DreamBig3

. . . . .

That’s all I have for you today, ‘Fetti Fans, but the Confetti Crew has been very, and I mean VERY, busy creating lots of FABULOUS creations to share with you!

Today we are reveal 2 more stamp sets, along with coordinating Confetti Cuts die sets.

I think we are all ready for a little more sunshine in our lives about this time of year!!  I know it hardly feels like spring here and I am turning lighter shades of pale with each passing day.  If I can’t get my sunshine outside, I guess I’ll have to take it in paper and ink form!

Introducing…

SHINE BRIGHT

Mix and match these words/sentiments for lots of great possibilities!

These stamps coordinate with the SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set that I revealed on Day One…

SunNCloudsCCProductGraphic

I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with this set and mixing and matching the sentiments and pairing them with new Confetti Cuts dies.

For this card I stamped the sentiment on the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set (previously released) and adhered it to the scalloped rectangle from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set (also previously released).

To embellish, I added the sun from the new SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set with a few yellow enamel dots and used both of the banners from the new DOUBLE BANNER GARLAND Confetti Cuts.

The words on the stamped image are colored in with Copics.

I told you that I didn’t think this die set would be leaving my desk anytime soon!  *wink*

So far in this release we have birds and bunnies.  It’s time to throw bees into the mix, too! Birds and bunnies and bees…OH MY!

Introducing…

THE BUZZ

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

TheBuzzCC_ProductGraphic

My first project today using THE BUZZ stamp and Confetti Cuts die is this cute lil’ tag…

BuzzTag

To create this, I cut out the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die and then stamped the “You Are So Bee-You-Tiful” sentiment on it.

I then cut out another TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts tag from gray and white polka dot paper and used the bottom portion to layer.  From there, I added a yellow strip cut with the new DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.

The bees are stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black ink and then colored with Copics and then popped up on dimensional adhesive.  The small bee is adhered to the tag at the end of his “trail” (one of 2 different ones included in the set).

My second project using this fun stamp and Confetti Cuts die set is this card that also features the new SPRING FLING QUICK CARD PANELS

SweetCard

SpringFlingQCPProductGraphic

For this sweet bee, I layered the wings for added dimension.  It’s hard to tell in the photo (thank you Mother Nature for terrible lighting), but I also did add a little bit of glitter to the wings, as well…

The beehive is also colored with Copics and adhered with dimensional adhesive.
