By Jen del Muro
on March 01, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Sunday!

As you know, I don’t normally blog on the weekend unless something is happening over here at Reverse Confetti.  Well, it’s the first of the month and that means it’s time for a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!

SFYTT22_Mar15

This is a fun layered sketch with lots of chances for you to make it your own by flipping it, using Confetti Cuts dies and/or embellishing.  Have fun with it!

. . . . .

Here are all the details you need to know…

Before I get to all the wonderful inspiration that the Confetti Crew came up with using this sketch, let’s go over the details…

There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.

The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 29th. The SFYTT button is  posted on the sidebar.  Click on it to be taken to the current SFYTT post and link list.

Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!

You may enter as many times as you wish.

There will be a winner each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 30th of this month.

QUIRKY CUTIES HOP

By admin
on July 24, 2014

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

Instead of Confetti Camera, today we are having a super fun hop with super fun prizes!

If you are looking for the start of the hop, you are in the right place!  There’s a full list of hoppers later in this post in case of any breaks.

QCHOPGraphic

(card by Confetti Crew member, Sarah Gough)

. . . . .

Today’s hop is all about our QUIRKY CUTIES line of stamps here at Reverse Confetti.

Originally, “Quirky Cuties” was going to be a single set.  However, I am a little indecisive and I just *love* how fun these cuties are, so I developed them into an entire line.  So far, we have four cuties…with more coming with each release.

Today, I am sharing a card I made with our very first cutie, FREIDA FOX.

FreidaProductSheet200

QCHOPCard

Frieda is ton of fun to color, paper piece or just leave as line art!  It’s just one of the reasons that I adore this image (ok, well, I adore all of them).

I used my Copics to color her fur, flower and shoes and then I paper pieced her dress, scarf and heart.  Here is she is on circle panels cut from the new CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts.  I went with white on white for those panels so that Freida would stand out more.

Detail pic of Freida Fox and the heart topped with Diamond Glaze…

QCHOPCard2

To embellish the card, I cut out the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set and topped it with a button tied off with green linen thread.  I also added a trio of colorful enamel dots to mimic the pattern paper.

BLOG HOP PRIZE INFORMATION:

Leave a comment here and at each stop along the way for a chance to win!

Two lucky hoppers will each win a COLOR CUBBIE from Studio 3 Solutions and their choice of 3 Quirky Cuties!

Comments will stay open through Sunday at 5pm CST and a winner will be announced on Monday right here on the Reverse Confetti blog.

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on May 22, 2014

Howdy ‘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 uber fab, AMY SHEFFER

AmySIntroPic

Hi ‘Fetti fans! For today’s card, I’ve combined two sets from our latest release, OLIVER OWL and YOU MAKE ME SMILE, in a super fun, quirky way!

RCyoumakemesmile2_0522confetticamera_aks

I just adore the glasses in both Oliver Owl, Freida Fox, and BeBe Bunny, and thought Oliver’s square ones would be fun to use with the word “smile” in YOU MAKE ME SMILE. (There’s a third set in there, too – the eyes are from PETALS ‘N POSIES.) The grin, which I cut with my Cameo, is actually from a jack-o-lantern parts collection, of all things!

RCyoumakemesmile2detail_0522confetticamera_aks

The new DOIN’ THE WAVE CONFETTI CUTS die makes an appearance, as do old favorites, LOVE NOTE, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER, and OFFICE EDGES. (I love my RC dies!) For fun, I spritzed the main panel with some aqua mist and accented with clear sequins.

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: OLIVER OWL, WINNING AND NEW CONFETTI CUTS

By admin
on May 05, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

It is time to celebrate!  The sneak peeks for the May 8th release have officially begun, or as we like to call them: the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  For the next four days we will be sharing a bunch of inspiration featuring our SIX new stamp stamps and SIX new CONFETTI CUTS.  All of the products will be live in the Reverse Confetti store at midnight on May 8th.

And, did you know?…

IT’S OUR BIRTHDAY!

And, we’re celebrating with gifts for YOU!  See below how you could win!

 NewReleaseScheduleMay14

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 a $25 gift certificate or even THE ENTIRE RELEASE!

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…

NewReleaseFBLike

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on May 7th will be randomly chosen to win a $25 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 the drill…grab that cuppa joe (or tea), sit back and relax as we kick off this COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!

HOOT HOOT HOORAY, it’s our birthday!

In addition to it being out birthday, it’s that time of year when our focus turn to Dads and Grads and our latest “cutie” in the QUIRKY CUTIES collection is just perfect for all those guys (and gals) in your life.  Plus, you’ll find fun uses for him throughout the year.

Without further adieu, let me introduce you to OLIVER OWL

OliverOwl300

I just adore OLIVER OWL and had so much fun coloring and creating with him!  (Even if you are not a “colorer,” these images are lots of fun to play with!)

For this card, I had Oliver take center stage with the sentiment stitched to the rounded rectangle (CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts) just behind him.  I backed that panel with cuts from TAG ME and the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts.  He’s colored with both warm and cool grays and I think he goes perfectly with the woodgrain paper that I’ve been hoarding for a couple of months now…

Today, we are also introducing the new set WINNING, along with the companion WINNING Confetti Cuts die set…

A little side note and Reverse Confetti trivia for you…this was actually one of the first sets that I sketched and created concepts for when things got going last year.  However, it just wasn’t meant to be at that time and I am glad I hung onto it, edited it, sent it to a different illustrator (Angelica Suarez) and ended up with this fantastic set perfect for all the champs in your life…

 

WinningGraphic300

The Confetti Cuts die set features the trophy, the trophy base, the pennant and the starburst…

WinningConfettiCutsProductGraphic

The new OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set is the perfect compliment to the WINNING stamps and Confetti Cuts, too.  The (single) stars in this set are the same size as the stars in the WINNING stamp set.

OhMyStarsConfettiCutsProductGraphic

. . . . .

I was apparently channeling my inner Dallas Cowboys fan with this color scheme on my first card featuring WINNING stamps and Confetti Cuts, and the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set.  However, any Cowboys fan will tell you that colors are where the team stops as the muse for this card (sorry ‘Boys…hoping for a better season this year).

Winning1

I used the tab from the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts to display the word, “hooray” from a WINNING set sentiment.  You can also see the dimension on this card and the detail of the star strip behind the trophy/trophy base…

Winning1_detail2

It’s been awhile since I broke out the Diamond Glaze, but this card just needed a little “something” as a special touch and this was it!  On this shot, you can also see that I slightly shaded the trophy (Copic C3 and Blender), too.

Winning1_detail

I’ve been having quite a bit of fun in my studio lately creating with these new stamps and Confetti Cuts.  While I love doing lots of layers on cards and other paper crafting projects, it’s so nice to keep it simple sometimes.

For this card, I cut 3 of the star strips (OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts) and attached 3 shades of purple cardstock to create this ombre card with a sentiment from the WINNING stamp set.

Card2

Detail shot…

Card2_detail

I also did the same layout with a more masculine color scheme and embellishments (stars cut from OH MY STARS in cork)…

NOTE: Many of our Confetti Cuts 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).
