Confetti Camera

By admin
on September 18, 2014

It’s Thursday and time for a great Confetti Camera where you will learn how to “stretch” your dies…or at least their use!

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 one and only (my bestie), SUSAN LILES

SusanIntroPic

. . . . .

Hey ‘Fetti Fans!  Are y’all ready to see something fun you can do to make your dies work a little harder for you?  I love finding new ways to use them.

 This time, I’ve taken the rounded tag from the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts and made a sweet little party favor treat holder.

20140917_164156_resized

 Here’s what I put together to get started.  The sentiment is from the new IN A BIG WAY stamp set and the frame is stamped and cut from the GIVE THANKS stamp set and cut with the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die.

20140917_163405_resized(1)

 Once I cut 2 of the tags, I scored them at the bottom about a 1/2″ up.  Then placed them on top of one another and glued the circle down to the top of one of them.  Then with my paper piercer, poked a hole through all 3 thicknesses.  I also *very carefully* poked a hole through the center of the cardstock bow.  This will be where a brad will go to hold everything in place.

20140917_163107_resized

20140917_163502_resized

 Decorate the front of the tag with the circle on it.  I also added a strip of the stars from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.  Fold the bottom of the tags along the score lines, and adhere them together right there.  Fold both sides up.  Put the brad through the bow and both tags and secure.

20140917_164628_resized

 These are perfect little treat holders for a “fun size” pack of M & M’s!  A little secret:  If y’all are local, stop by The Little Blue House this Saturday from 10-2.  I’ll be hosting a make-n-take, and you can make one of your very own!

A SPECIAL WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Today I have a super fun WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS post for you!  Reverse Confetti is the sponsor for the new sketch over on StampNation…how fun is that?!?

Catherine (of CatherinePooler.com/StampNation) and I have collaborated on a few things in the past, but I have to admit that has been by favorite so far!

The sketch is posted over on the Stamp Nation site and here’s my take on it using CAST A SPELL, CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts and CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts…

SNCard

Today, you’ll see cards from not only the Confetti Crew, but also from the talented StampNation Design Team HERE.

Not a member yet?  Today’s the last day for the $1 trial (sweet!).  You can get that HEREIt’s a wonderful community of stampers and there is always something new and fun to learn and see!

Detail shot of the witchy hat embellished with a star from OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts…

Catherine is also up today here on the Reverse Confetti blog with her take on the sketch with some of your favorite Reverse Confetti products!  I told you today was special and fun!

First, a note from Catherine herself…

Thank you so much to Jen for having me as a guest designer today and for hosting the challenge at StampNation this week! We have been blown away at the creativity from both Design Teams, but I really shouldn’t have been too surprised! When you are using RC stamps, great things happen! I got to play with Fresh & Fruity and have made FOUR cards with the set. The oranges on this card were Rock and Rolled to create depth and dimension and I couldn’t resist adding Frosted Lace Stickles to the oranges…now they are almost good enough to eat! I hope you enjoy the video – be sure to watch until the end for a little surprise. Check out my blog tomorrow, too for another fun card with this set and an out-of-the-box way to use it.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Hello and Happy Hump Day!

It’s Wednesday and time for 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.

Today, I am focusing on something super simple and a way to get more out of your stamps and Confetti Cuts dies…create your own embellishments.

I’ve done that here on this tag (TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts) I attached to a few cookies in a cello bag…

CookieTag

I have to admit, that I first reached for some pre-fabricated embellishments that I bought at a big box store, but then I thought better of it as I looked at the CAST A SPELL stamps on my studio desk.

I layered the broom and and witch hat, both cut from the coordinating CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts die set.  To dress it up a little, I paper pieced the ribbon around the hat and added a star (OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts) topped with a sequin and rhinestone.

Easy peasy, right?

Here’s a few tips to keep in mind when creating your own embellishments…

Keep it simple.  I stamped in black on kraft paper.  Because of the subdued color, it doesn’t take away from the main focal point, but rather enhances it.  I also want to mention, that I brought this project to the CKC convention last week and A LOT of people commented on how they loved the look of the black on kraft.

Still keeping it simple, layer coordinating images to create a fun, clustered look.

Dress it up a little if needed.  I added the paper pieced strip (same paper as the top of the tag) and the embellished star for just a little pop of color and bling.

. . . . .

I’m keepin’ it short and sweet as I have all your orders to get out the door!  Have a great day!

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again…I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!  Not the dressing up part, so much, but all the decor and projects that are all about Halloween!  I know most people love Christmas the most, but for me it’s Halloween, then Valentine’s Day and then Christmas.  Being that it’s (just about) fall, it is time to get started all those fun Halloween and Thanksgiving projects!

So, without further adieu let me introduce you to our Halloween stamp set and its coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

CAST A SPELL

CastASpellProductGrapicA

CastASpellCCProductGrapicA

As you can imagine, I have been very busy creating with this set!

This card features the CAST A SPELL stamps and Confetti Cuts, as well as the (previously released) OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts and CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts…

CastASpell1

I added Diamond Glaze on the potion she’s stirring up and Stickles to the fire for some great dimension and detail…

My next card features the CAST A SPELL stamps and Confetti Cuts, as well as the new PRETTY PANELS: STARS Confetti Cuts, SO MANY STARS stamp set and the (previously released) DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER and OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die sets…

Witchie1

Detail shot of all the stars (OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts, PRETTY PANELS: STARS Confetti Cuts and SO MANY STARS stamp set) along with the witch hat from the CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts die set)…

The PRETTY PANELS: STARS panel is backed with a gray piece of cardstock cut from the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set (these are made to coordinate together).

Love the shape of that sentiment panel?  It’s one of the new dies in the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die set (more below)…

Witchie1Card

. . . . .

Crisp cool air, fall festivals, family gatherings…all things to be thankful for.

Introducing GIVE THANKS and the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

GiveThanksProductGraphicA

GiveThanksLabel_productgraphicA

The GIVE THANKS Confetti Cuts die set contains two label dies.  The larger die coordinates with the label image in the GIVE THANKS stamp set.  The smaller label is to use with other sentiments or as a layer on your cards, scrapbooks or other paper crafting projects.

I paired this set with the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts to create a fun giftie that’s perfect for a hostess, friend, teacher, family member (ok, well anyone, really!)…

BountyTote

I created my own embellishment by taking the apple (yes, the apple) from our CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set and flipping it upside down to create a pumpkin.  This was an idea I got from Confetti Crew member, Leigh Penner.  I tell ya, she is CLEVER!  I cut leaves from felt with the leaf swag die from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set.  The finishing touch is a button with twine and tulle that I popped on top of the pumpkin.

PumpkinDetail

This is just part of the gift set that I created!

I also made a shadow box with the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die and GIVE THANKS stamp set…

ShadowBoxandTote

To create this 3D pumpkin, I cut 5 of the large GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts, folded them in half (crease with a bone folder) and adhered them together.  I topped off with leaves from FRESH ‘N FRUITY Confetti Cuts and a button tied up with linen thread…

There is so much more inspiration to see using these stamps and dies that are releasing on September 8th!

Do you love big sentiments on your cards, scrapbook layouts and other paper crafting project?  So do we!

Introducing IN A BIG WAY

InABigWayProductGraphicA

In addition to introducing you to this great new sentiment set, I also want to show you one of the two new PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts that I used on my first couple of cards for this post.

Introducing PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts…

PPTrianglesProductGraphicA

For these cards, I kept it very clean and simple.  I love how the IN A BIG WAY sentiment pops against the colored PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES layer and white base.

TrianglesHelloCard

The PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts die cut is cut from watercolor paper that I colored with pink, orange and yellow.  I then applied a very thin layer Diamond Glaze so that it would have some sheen to it.

TrianglesHello

As you know, I love dimension.  Here is a shot of how it is all popped up…

TrianglesHelloDetail

I had so much fun creating this card, that I also made it in blue and purple with the “Thanks” sentiment from IN A BIG WAY

Yesterday, I showed you the new TREAT TOTE.  That is just one of the totes that we are releasing this month!

TAGGED TOTE

TaggedToteProductGraphicA

This die set contains SEVEN Confetti Cuts dies!

The base of the tote has a rounded top and we have included a rounded top panel to coordinate with it.  This rounded top panel can be used as a layer on the tote (or any other paper crafting project); however, you can also turn it into a tag.  The small round circle acts as a hole punch and then the larger circle is the reinforcer to be placed over the “punched” hole.  You can easily create handles on the tote using the half oval die.  Also included is a bow die, just as a fun detail.

Here’s my sweet birthday tote using the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set and IN A BIG WAY stamp set…

TaggedToteBirthday

TaggedToteBirthdayStarDetail1

The scalloped edge panel was cut using the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die (previously released).  The stars are cut from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set (previously released).

As promised yesterday, I have a photo tutorial on how to assemble the two totes that are being released September 8th.  For the tutorial, I have used the TAGGED TOTE, but note that assembly is the same for both totes.

Step 1: Cut 2 of the totes and one of the base of the tote.  I have trimmed the 2 smaller tabs off of one of the totes.

Step1

Step 2: (Optional) You can create handles on your tote by using the half oval die.

Step2

Step3

Step 3: Adhere the two totes together.

Step4

Step 4: Add the bottom of the tote to the small tab in the center.

Step5

Step 5: Assemble into tote, adhering the 2 other side flaps.

Step 6: Fold the bottom in and adhere tabs to it.

Now your tote is assembled and ready to be embellished.

Step7

Step8

Here’s mine all done up with the “Thanks” sentiment from the new IN A BIG WAY stamp set…

Notice something else that might be new?  Yep, there’s the other PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts die AND the brown panel is the new GIVE THANKS LABEL (more on this one tomorrow!).

SammyProductGraphicA

Sammy is a lot of fun to color and paper piece!   As I have mentioned before, even if you are not a colorista these QUIRKY CUTIES images are a lot of fun to play with!

Sammy takes center stage on this birthday card, where I colored him in brown with my Copics.  I colored and cut a couple of the acorns for fun element to add to this card…

In addition to Sammy, I have a couple of more fabulous new Reverse Confetti products to introduce you to!

I know you love packaging just as much as I do, so I am thrilled to introduce the TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

This Confetti Cuts die set also come with the word “Treats” that you can use on all your sweet gifties.

This sweet lil’ tote will fit snack size goodies, like M&M’s, perfectly.  I actually went out and bought a bag of the snack size treats when I was designing this!

***Please Note: I will have an  assembly (photo) tutorial tomorrow, along with a sneak peek of the other tote that is part of this release (which you may just see on a few of the Confetti Crew members’ sneak peeks today)***

Confetti Crew member, Sarah, has created a great assembly video:

My Halloween inspired TREAT TOTE

Also featured on this Treat Tote is the our new background set which is perfect for everyday use and all the holidays that are coming up quickly.

Introducing SO MANY STARS

I stamped the stars in white pigment ink on the green paper behind the “TREATS” panel.

TreatTote2detail2

I complemented the star background with OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts (previously released) and some color coordinated enamel dots…

TreatTote2detail

I just adore the big pinked edge on this tote!  I cut pieces of tissue paper out with the die so that I could have pinked tissue paper to coordinate with the tote itself…

As a finishing touch, I created a handle with 2 pieces of jute.

Simply cut TWO of this tote die and add the bottom piece to create a fabulously fun package (that fits a couple of snack size Treats like M&Ms perfectly). Included with this die set is the word TREATS that can be added to the front of the tote or to any of your other projects. Use the pinked edge panel for a fun detailed panel on cards, scrapbook pages or any other paper crafting project.

Set of 3 wafer thin dies

NOTE: Many of our die sets are connected by thin wire and may need to be released from each other. To do so, tin snips are best, but these can often easily be taken apart by a gentle hand. Rough edges where the dies were attached may be sanded lightly (careful not to sand the cutting edge).

 SIZE REFERENCE:

 Pinked Edge Tote 4.5” x 4.3”

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on August 20, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Wednesday and time for 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.

Today, Confetti Crew member SARAH GOUGH has a super fun card and video to share!

. . . . .

Sarah here, sharing how I like to color the trophy from the Winning stamp set with Copics. I’ll also show you the assembly of this patriotic looking card using SO STRIPEY, WINNING, WINNING Confetti Cuts and OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts!

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.
