WEEK IN REVERSE

on February 06, 2015

Hello and TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans!

I am definitely looking forward to this weekend!  The weather is supposed to be beautiful and I am excited to spend some quality time outside with the littles and my hubby.  I think I’ve convinced them to help me wash/clean out my car.  We’ll see if they are anywhere to be found when it comes time for that, though!

It’s a super special weekend at Reverse Confetti, too!  Sunday is our (monthly) blog hop and I promise you do not want to miss it!

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: NEW STAMPS, NEW CONFETTI CUTS & A BRAND NEW PRODUCT

By admin
on January 05, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

We are kicking off the new year with new stamps, new Confetti Cuts dies and a BRAND NEW PRODUCT!

It’s the first day of sneak peeks, or as we like to call it: THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  On January 8th we are releasing 6 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts (we know you love your dies!) and the new QUICK CARD PANELS!

ReadyForConfetti

. . . . .

Just a note…all of our releases will happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month.  We will release new product every other month.  We’ll still be hopping on the 8th, whether there is a release or not.  Just remember, “Eight is Great!”

. . . . .

Don’t forget to leave a comment here and on each sneak peek post this week for a chance to win!

In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion (starting at 9am EST today).  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic pinned to the top of our feed…

NextRelease

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on January 7th will be randomly chosen to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Winners for both the blog comments and Facebook comments will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog as well as on Facebook.

. . . . .

You know what to do now…grab that cuppa, sit back and enjoy all the wonderful inspiration that the Confetti Crew has put together using products from this fabulous release!

. . . . .

I wear a lot of hats…first and foremost, the Mom and Wife hats. Then, of course, just about every single one that comes with owning/running a business.  A lot of times, I wear all of these all at once which makes it a little difficult to carve out a lot of time to create.  That is always something that is in back of my mind when I design products for Reverse Confetti.  It’s important to me that our products are not only high quality and on trend, but also easy to use.  As so many of you have noted, our products work well together and make paper crafting and card making FUN and EASY!  We’ve added one more product to make creating FUNNER (not a word, I know) and EASIER (read: saves time when creating)!

I’m so happy to introduce to you our new HAPPY HEART DAY QUICK CARD PANELS…

QCPJan15ProductGraphic

 QUICK CARD PANELS are limited edition premium heavyweight cardstock panels measuring 3.25″ x 4.5″.  Each package contains 2 of each 8 printed design.  They are designed for A2 card making, but you can easily use them on all of your paper crafting projects!  We will have a new set of QUICK CARD PANELS with each release. Grab them while you can, because once they’re gone, they’re gone!

You’ll see the new limited edition QUICK CARD PANELS used on a variety of projects from the Confetti Crew.  We can’t wait to see how you will use them on your creations!

. . . . .

Before I get to my projects using these awesome QUICK CARD PANELS, let’s reveal our first new set…

PUPPY LOVE

PuppyLoveProductGraphic

Puppy Love is the first set in a new line by UK artist, Dawn Machell.  We are so excited about these cute characters!

In addition, there are coordinating PUPPY LOVE Confetti Cuts dies…

PuppyLoveCCProductGraphic

This card uses both the new HAPPY HEART DAY QUICK CARD PANELS along with new PUPPY LOVE stamp set and Confetti Cuts dies…

PuppyLove1

On this card I used the stripe frame panel to frame in the pups and the heart on top was the perfect touch!

I just *ADORE* these pooches!  Here’s a cute tag I made using them along with (previously released) TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die…

Aren’t they so sweet!?!

. . . . .

This next card features the new HAPPY HEART QUICK CARD PANELS, along with the “Happy Valentine’s Day” sentiment from PUPPY LOVE

QCPCard

QUICK CARDS PANELS are the perfect size to use on A2 cards and they are fun and easy to layer, as well!  Here I cut down the main image QUICK CARD PANEL and layered it with the one I have centered and stamped.

In addition to the new HAPPY HEART DAY QUICK CARD PANELS and PUPPY LOVE stamps and Confetti Cuts, there’s more to reveal today!

Introducing HEART TO HEART stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts dies…

HeartToHeartProductGraphic

HeartToHeartCCProductGraphic

I love the HEART TO HEART set because it is so versatile.  It’s easy to go big and bold or to create something clean and simple with a fabulous focal panel.  Here I took the latter of those design themes to create this card…

GoldLove2

I really wanted the gold heart to take center stage on this card, so I die cut several of the hearts in white and layered them on a white cardstock panel.  I then stamped the “love” heart in Delicata Gold, die cut it and popped it up.  The sequins weren’t actually part of the original design plan, but when I accidentally smudged black ink on a completed card and didn’t want to start over they ended up as the perfect pairing to the gold heart.

GoldLoveDetail

. . . . .

Now for one that’s a little bigger and bolder…

Notice anything else you haven’t seen before?

The ampersand is part of a new Confetti Cuts die set that I will be revealing here tomorrow.

However, I will show you one (of 3) of the new PRETTY PANELS today.

NEW RELEASE HOP

By admin
on October 08, 2014

Hello and THANK YOU for such a wonderful response to our October Special Mini Release!  I’ve received so many sweet comments and emails! Love you guys!

NowAvailable

Since our prize schedule change a little with this special mini release, here’s a reminder of times, etc…

ReadyForConfetti

All of the new release are available in the store now.

To celebrate the new release, the Confetti Crew has put together a fabulous hop with a ton of “Confetti Creativity” using the new stamps and Confetti Cuts dies.

Note, there is a full list of hoppers at the bottom of this post in case there are any breaks along the way.

TWO NEW CONFETTI CUTS

EnvieWrapProductGraphic   HangingOutProductGraphic

TWO NEW STAMP SETS

RoundaboutProductGraphic   RoundaboutAdditionsProductGraphic

. . . . .

I have A LOT to share with you today!

My first project for you today is a fun project that was very inexpensive to put together and the colors can be switched to accommodate any special occasion or holiday!

BirthdayCup

I started with a empty clear cup and lid that I snagged from my local deli and then added the front panel that is create with the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set, CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts and stars from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.

To get this shape from the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, I trimmed it at the perforation mark and then rounded the corners.  Easy Peasy!

I filled the cup with Jolly Rancher candies, put the lid on and tied a ribbon on top.

TIP: Secure your ribbon on the bottom of the cup with a little bit of double sided tape.

Finally, I added dangles created from the HB2U sentiment from the ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set stamped on CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die cuts, along with some addition stars that I cut our from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.  I topped the stars off with sequins and enamel dots.

Detail shot…

BirthdayCupDetail

. . . . .

This next project also features the new ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die (in a more “traditional” way) along with the new ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set…

SpecialDeliveryEnvie

This is a baby boy inspired envelope.  I love this color combination (gray, navy and orange) and this was so fun and easy to create!  Again, switch up the colors to accommodate your special occasion or holiday.

Here’s the flip side to write a to and/or from…

SpecialDelivery_Back

. . . . .

As promised yesterday, I’m back in Halloween mode!  (EEK…I still need to get my decorations up at home).

This project features the new HANGING OUT Confetti Cuts die that creates a door hanger…

HangingOutPocket

It was very easy to create this pocket door hanger (holding 2 snack size Hershey bars).

To create the base:

Cut a sheet of cardstock to 4.25″ x 11″

Score at 3.5″ x 3.27″ (these create the folds for the pocket)

I layered the top portion of my hanger with pattern paper.  To do this, you can cut both the pattern paper and the cardstock at the same time (you may have to run it back and forth a few times).  Or you can run them through separately.  If you choose to do them separately, mark lightly on the second sheet with pencil where to cut to insure that you get the pieces lined up.

A few detail shots…

HangingOutPocket_HangDetail

The sentiment is from the September release set, CAST A SPELL.  To embellish, I cut the witch hat from the CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts set from black felt and added a star from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.  I then added a purple heart button tied off with linen thread.

HangingOutPocket2

It’s a chocolate pocket!

HangingOutPocket_Detail1

. . . . .

Yes, I still have MORE to show you using this fabulously fun Confetti Cuts die!  Just one more project.  Here’s a fun lil’ Halloween themed giftie (again, switch up the theme/colors to create your unique hanger for any occasion)…

HangingOutDC

Instead of putting the hanger facing to the side, I did it on the top of this sheet of cardstock.  The perforated line was created using OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts…

HangingOutDC2

Detail of witch and sentiment from CAST A SPELL (cut with coordinating CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts), along with the rounded tag panel (turned upside down) from TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts…

Roundabout

Around and around we go! Have fun with these great versatile circle sentiments made to coordinate with the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die and the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set (both large and small non-scallop circles). In addition, the dashed lines create the return address portion on the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts, die. Also included in this set are 4 circles so that you can create your own bokeh effect project, or just use them as the polka dots (my favorite!).

 Set of 9 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

Large Circle 2.05”

Reverse Confetti stamps are high quality photopolymer mounted on an acetate sheet.

Set of 6 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

Large Circle 2.05”

4”x6” stamp set

CONFETTI CUTS: Envie Wrap

We all know how to make a cute card, but now you can make a cute (and coordinating) envelope with the ENVIE WRAP. Simply cut from cardstock or pattern paper and add your sentiment/address label from the ROUNDABOUT and ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp sets to create one of a kind, jaw dropping envelopes. Just imagine your Christmas or birthday cards arriving and standing out against all the others! This die includes detailed debossing, a perforated line to easily crease over your envelopes and the center circle is the same size as the large non-scallop circle in the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set

SIZE REFERENCE:

Envie Wrap 5.76” x 2.4”

CONFETTI CUTS: Hanging Out

The Hanging Out die creates a cut out to create a door hanger. Imagine leaving a festive door hanger on your neighbor’s door or creating one for yourself. You know that the kids will love them for themselves, their friends and teachers! Create fun one-of-a-kind door hangers easily using the Hanging Out Confetti Cuts die.

While you can use this on any size cardstock, note that best results for centering the cut out hole are done using a 4.25” width sheet of cardstock.

SIZE REFERENCE:

Hanging Out 3.1” x 2”

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on October 02, 2014

Howdy there, ‘Fetti Fans!

Anyone else excited about this weekend?  You probably already know, but in case you didn’t…Saturday is WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!  We have a very special announcement to make on Saturday, so stay tuned you won’t want to miss it!

It’s Thursday and time for a great Confetti Camera where you will learn how to make an adorably scary tote!

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 ABC (anything but a card) projects.  Keep your eyes peeled for some fabulous ways to use your Reverse Confetti stamps!

. . . . .

Today on Confetti Camera we have the super fun and wildly talented, HEATHER PULVIRENTI

HeatherIntroPic

Hi ‘Fetti Fans! Heather P. here today to share a frightfully fun Frankenstein treat tote I created entirely from Confetti Cuts! I had such a blast putting together the pink monster for September’s Color Challenge, and wanted to see what else I could come up with.  With the great range of Reverse Confetti die shapes, the possibilities are endless!

 100214

To create the tote, I used the following Confetti Cuts to cut out my pieces:

Tagged Tote (tote base and eyes)

Treat Tote (Frank’s hair)

Office Edges (scars/stitches)

Fresh ‘n Fruity (larger eye)

Circles ‘n Scallops (smaller eye)

Carton Cuties (nose)

Let’s Chill (glitter neck bolts)

Doin’ the Wave (smile)

Once I had all the elements ready to go, assembly was a breeze! First, I started by adhering the sides and bottom of the Tagged Tote, then attaching the black card stock for Frankenstein’s hair.  Next, I adhered the smaller white card stock circle directly on the tote base, then added the larger white card stock circle with pop dots before adding in the nose piece.

I then adhered the two black scars (wrapping around the edges of the tote), and the red, squiggly mouth.  An exacto knife was used to cut a slit on each side of the tote to hold the glitter card stock neck bolts.  Glossy accents were then added to the gray card stock pupils, two black scars and red mouth.

 100214 CU

While the glossy accents were drying, I die cut a tag using the Give Thanks Confetti Cuts frame on a piece of turquoise polka dot patterned paper. I then stamped one of the sentiments from Spooky Sentiments in versamark ink before heat embossing it with white embossing powder.  I punched a hole in the top of the tag, then secured it to a cellophane treat bag with orange twine and a yellow clothespin.  To finish up, I placed the treat into the tote.

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

I gotta say that starting a new week with a new release is pretty darn fabulous!

My first project for you today features the new TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

TreatTote1

Tutorial for how to assemble both of our new totes can be found HERE (video) and HERE (picture tutorial).

To create this TREAT TOTE, I used black and white patterned paper as I really wanted the colors on the “TREATS” panel to pop.  I cut 2 “TREATS” sentiments out…one in orange and one in white and layered them, slightly offset.  The circle reinforcer at the top of the bag is from the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shot…

TreatTote1detail

. . . . .

My second project today features a fun mix of new and previously released Reverse Confetti products…

GotCandy1

I saw these cute bags at Michaels and immediately knew what I wanted to do with them!

First things first…fill them with candy.  I put 2 mini Hershey bars in the bags.

Second…make them cute!

To do that, I cut the rounded top tag from the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die (I love when I get to use these dies in fun and different ways) and then made a score mark 1 inch in from the straight end (opposite the rounded end).  This is where the tag is folded over the bag.  I wanted a little more detail, so before I attached them to the bag I used the perforation line from the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts to add the perforation/dashed line.  To attach the tag to the bag, I simply used a small stapler.

On the bottom/round portion of the tag, I added patterned paper and then layered my embellishments.  The Kraft panel is cut from the new GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts and then stamped with the large dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS.  I created the spider with circles from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set, a small circle punch, enamel dots and strips of black cardstock.  The orange panel is cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set and is stamped with a sentiment from SPOOKY SENTIMENTS.

I’ll be giving these out to my kiddos’ teachers for Halloween.

CUTTING EDGE HOP

on August 22, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Today we have a TON of inspiration on the blog!  This is actually the second post for the day.  If you came here looking for the WEEK IN REVERSE, just scroll on down after you are done reading this post.

What is this post?…it’s super fun and exciting!  Reverse Confetti is pleased to be a sponsor for THE CUTTING EDGE blog hop…

cuttingedge

You’re invited to play along in this blog hop!  It officially opened today and will close on August  25th at 11:55pm PST.  This hop is being hosted by the fabulous Paulina of Pretty Pink Posh.  You can link up your creation and find out more details on the PPP blog HERE.

I had so much fun creating for this hop!  I love using my Confetti Cuts dies and I used a *few* of them together on this card…

The main panel consists of the following Confetti Cuts:

TAG ME

CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS

PETALS ‘N POSIES

Don’t you just love those Pretty Pink Posh sequins?!

When people see my cards in person, they are often surprised at my layers and use of dimensional adhesive.  I thought I’d include a “depth” shot so you could see it on this card…

In addition to using the above mentioned Confetti Cuts dies, I also used the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts die set to create a tab tuck.

You can see the video how-to HERE.

Here’s my take on this regal combo…

08colorcard

This scrappy card is perfect for sending a sweet hello to a friend.

The gold cardstock is cut with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER die.  I love the glimmer of the gold, which I mirrored with the sequins.

The main panel consists of the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set, CHEVRON PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts and the heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shot…

The “oh hello” sentiment from the ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS set is stamped with white pigment ink on the navy panel.
