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

ShineBrightProductGraphic

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.

hellosunshine

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

TheBuzzProductGraphic

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.

DoubleEdgeWonkyScallopBorderCCProductGraphic

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).

BuzzTag1

. . . . .

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…

SweetCard2

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

I have several new projects to share with you using these new products.  I just couldn’t stop playing!

My first card features 2 large heart images from the playful and sweet new HEART TO HEART stamp set, as well as the HEART TO HEART Confetti Cuts dies, PRETTY PANELS: BIG CHEVRON Confetti Cuts die and DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set (rounded rectangle)…

LoveToLove1

The PRETTY PANELS: BIG CHEVRON Confetti Cuts die is layered with the rounded rectangle from CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts (made to play together).  Detail shot…

. . . . .

Next up is a project I created using the new sets HERE’S THE STORY, RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW, as well as the new DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set (and, previously released, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set)…

Frame1

This is frame that I picked up from a bin at Michaels.  It’s been sitting in my “do something with this” stash (everyone has one of these, right?).  I took out the glass so that I could make my project more dimensional.  I was able to make it a shadowbox(ish) by putting in the mat (covered with a piece of patterned paper cut to match) and then pressing down the tabs on the back to secure it.  I then added the back of the frame on top of the tabs that were pressed down and secured to frame with tape.  I was fortunate that the back of the frame sat on top on the tabs and was flush with the frame base.

Detail shots…

Frame3

Sewn hearts (cut from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts) and sentiment from HERE’S THE STORY

This card uses the new LOVE BLOOMS stamps and LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts die set.  I love how clean it looks and how the flowers pop off the white background…

One more project and then I am sending you on your way to see all of the other Confetti Crew creations.

This final project features the new SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS stamp set and SQUARE TAG in a way that is perfect for a guy’s Valentine or for anytime you want to give someone a sweet pat on the back…

YouRock1

I “popped” Pop Rocks into a chevron glassine bag and paired it with an embellished SQUARE TAG Confetti Cuts die (flag-ended piece from TAG ME Confetti Cuts and stars from OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts) and attached it with a mini clothespin.  Detail shot…

Christmas Porch Decorating Ideas-01-1 Kindesign

{photo credit}

The holidays are just around the corner and we have a few products that are going to become staples in your holiday stash.  You know, those ones that you reach for time and time again because they are fun and easy to use and make all your projects look like a million bucks!

The first set we are introducing today is NORTH POLE WISHES

NorthPoleWishesProductGraphic

This set features 2 large sentiments that fit perfectly on our TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts and on the rounded top panel from the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set (shown in my projects).  There are 7 images to complement the sentiments, including a variety of patterned holly leaves, holly berries, an envelope and what I like to refer to as a “postal element.”

Of course, there is a coordinating Confetti Cuts die set!

NORTH POLE WISHES Confetti Cuts…

CCNorthPoleWishesProductGraphic

My first project today uses the “Express Mail…” sentiment, along with an envelope popped up in the center.  That lil’ heart sealing the envelope is a sprinkle from the DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts die set that was introduced yesterday.

NorthPoleWishes1

Notice anything else that might be new?  Yep. those chevrons are one of our new Confetti Cuts die sets!

TRIPLE CHEVIES Confetti Cuts die set…

TripleCheviesProductGraphic

This is a single die that cuts 3 different size chevrons at once.  Mix and match to create fun and unique designs!

Detail shot of my card…

NorthPoleWishes1detail

. . . . .

Next up is a couple of tags that I created using the new NORTH POLE WISHES stamp set and coordinating dies…

NPWTags

For these tags, I used the “Holly Jolly” sentiment and added the stamped/die cut holly leaves and berries in the center.

Detail shot…

NPWTags1

For this tag, I dressed it up a little by adding pattern paper on the bottom and for the reinforcer.  In addition, I added bit of bling for a little sparkle and added detail.

. . . . .

Looking for that perfect sentiment set for all your holiday cards?  Look no further!

Introducing SEASONAL SENTIMENTS

SeasonalSentimentsProductGraphic

I couldn’t decide which sentiment to reach for first, so I created a card set with 3 different sentiments!

‘Tis The Season

CardTrio

Peace, Love & Joy

CardTrio_Peace

Holiday Wishes

CardTrio_Holiday

Each of the sentiments is stamped on a white piece of cardstock that I sewed around the edges.

The trees?  Oh, yes, the trees are also new!

Introducing BRANCH OUT

BranchOutProductGraphic

This Confetti Cuts die set features a tree base, a layering triangle, scalloped detail edge and trunk/branches.

For the cards above, I cut the trees from 2 different color felt and then added the trunk/branches cut from brown cardstock.

Can I tell you a secret?  I didn’t really plan on using the sequins in my original design plan. Don’t get me wrong, I love the way they look.  However, they came to the cards as a necessity to cover up a sloppy sewing corner (Peace, Love & Joy card).  Shhhh…don’t tell anyone!

Moving on…

. . . . .

My next card is perfect for the impending Polar Vortex hitting part of the US soon…

ColdOutside

All kidding aside, this is a “cool” sentiment for any of your winter themed cards, tags, scrapbook pages and home decor projects.

The snowflakes are cut from both gold and white cardstock and layered together.  I think I may be ruined for all other snowflake colors now.  I am swooning over the gold!

ColdOutsideDetail1

The snowflakes are from the new LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts die set that features 3 sizes of this great snowflake shape.  Perfect for lots of layers or on their own…

LetItSnowProductGraphic

Since I couldn’t stop at gold snowflakes, I added the gold scalloped panel cut with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die to tie it all together.  Then, I kept going.  Love those gold sequins, too!

ColdOutsideDetail

. . . . .

Did I mention that I was having fun with gold cardstock? Haha… It didn’t stop there!

WarmWinterWishes1

The gold on this card is used with the LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts snowflake dies and with the new PRETTY PANELS: MINI CIRCLE GARLAND Confetti Cuts panel.  This is another one of the eight sentiments included in the SEASONAL SENTIMENTS stamp set and it is stamped on the smaller scalloped circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts.

Detail shot…

WarmWinterWishes1detail

I just love this new Confetti Cuts panel!

. . . . .

Just a reminder: Tomorrow we’ll be hopping with even more inspiration using all the new products!

We’ve been taking note of a new trend…DONUTS!

Just looking at that picture is making my mouth water!

Introducing DONUT YOU KNOW stamp and Confetti Cuts dies…

DonutYouKnowProductGraphic

The DONUT YOU KNOW stamp set is full of cute, witty and sweet (of course) sentiments (and sprinkles!) that pair perfectly with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.

CCDonutYouKnowProductGraphic

This is a set of 6 Confetti Cuts dies: the donut base, the icing, the hole to cut the center of donut and frosting, as well as 3 different perfectly sized sprinkles.  You’ll be whipping up the cutest baker’s dozen in no time!  The best part?…no calories (and they’re super cute!).

My first card today features both the DONUT YOU KNOW stamp and Confetti Cuts die set together to make a sweet birthday card.  You could switch up the colors of the sprinkles to personalize it for a boy or girl…or even your recipient’s favorite team.

DonutCard1

Creating these donuts is much easier than making real donuts.  Here’s the how to:

1. Cut the base of the donut with a hole in the center

2. Cut the icing, also with a hole in the center (lining up center holes, adhere to base)

3. Cut your sprinkles out and adhere to frosting

Of course, there are lots of ways to dress up your donuts!  I’ve had tons of fun playing around with different ways to create a variety of different frostings.

For this particular card, I used Ranger white enamel (that I’ve been hoarding for a few years now), along with a white and silver glitter mixture that I picked up at Michaels (there’s a pic of it a little ways down on this post).  I sprinkled the hearts and rectangular sprinkles in two different colors of pink to create the perfect (girly) confection.

DonutCard1detail1

And, as you may know, sprinkles tend to fall off here and there so I made a sprinkling of sprinkles around the donuts on the card.

DonutCard1detail2

The sentiment is stamped on the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set and sewn on the card.

Notice anything else on this card that is new?  It’s subtle, but it’s there!

Introducing the new CIRCLE GARLAND Confetti Cuts…

CircleGarlandProductGraphic

On the card above, I layered it under my main image panel to give some dimension and detail without taking away from the focal panel.  I also used this Confetti Cuts die on the inside of my card that I peeked on Monday for the Caring Hearts Blog Hop.

. . . . .

My second project featuring the DONUT YOU KNOW stamps and Confetti Cuts is this sweet door hanger.  Our HANGING OUT Confetti Cuts door hanger die has been quite popular and it’s perfect for projects like this.  On this project, I used it in an upright manner.  It still fits perfectly on a door handle, or I could add it to a small bottle of milk…

ElliesHanger

What’s inside?  Real donuts, of course!

ElliesHanger2

The scalloped edge detail was created by cutting a pink piece of cardstock with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.

ElliesHanger1

I love this sentiment that plays on words!  It’s great for friends, teachers and neighbors!  I added the name using the LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS stamp set on the flag-ended panel from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set…

ElliesHanger3

For this frosting, I used t-shirt paint (!!), the glitter from Michaels that I mentioned above and some cute lil’ sequins…because some donuts need bling!

Here it is in the making…

DonutTip

. . . . .

My final project today is a tag cut from the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die set along with the new DONUT YOU KNOW stamps and Confetti Cuts…

DonutTag

For the icing on this donut, I used Diamond Glaze over the pink cardstock and then added my sprinkles.  Here’s pic that picks up on the how shiny the frosting is…

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

Donut You Know That You’re The Best? We love that donuts are trending right now and Donut You Know is the must have donut set!

CONFETTI CUTS: Donut You Know

The Donut You Know Confetti Cuts die set coordinates with the Donut You Know stamp set. No need for any cooking skills here. It’s as easy as 1-2-3…Cut the base of the donut along with the hole for the center; create the icing also with a hole in the center and finally sprinkle on hearts, stars, sprinkles…and a lot of love! You’ll have a baker’s dozen in no time at all. And the bonus is that these are calorie free!

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on October 30, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Merry Halloween Eve…or as I’ve seen it called Elsaween.  Just how many Elsa costumes will we be seeing tomorrow?  I’m glad that my kids did not go the Frozen  route (I’m Frozened out!) and will be dressing up as a pirate and a vampire.  Yes, my 4 year old is going to be a vampire…”with bloooood,” as he says.  Needless to say, it should be interesting.  Let’s see if I can remember to take pictures!

. . . . .

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 an ANYTHING BUT A CARD project 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.

Today on Confetti Camera we have the very kindhearted and over the top talented, AMY SHEFFER

AmySIntroPic

. . . . .

Hi everyone, Amy here today for this week’s Confetti Camera installment. Today, I’ve created a gift for a very dear friend who is undergoing chemo treatments for breast cancer. She is nearing the end of her eighteen treatments, and I thought I’d give her a way to count down the very last of these treatments and get to the finish line.

 The outer packaging is a matchbook-style wrap, with the bound side held together with a binder clip.

chemocountdown1

For the front label, I used the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, topped with a circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts. The sentiment is made up of the word “count” from COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, plus the word “chemo” and “down,” which were done by combining individual letters in the same font from a whole bunch of different sets. I added in some die-cuts for extra design elements: DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts, PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts , and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts.

chemocountdown3

 On the inside are three tiny paper gift sacks, one for each chemo treatment that’s left. The outsides of the each bag are numbered, and the inside has a motivational tag (plus a Ghirardelli chocolate square).

chemocountdown2

The #3 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: DIAGONAL STRIPE Confetti Cuts , ARROW Confetti Cuts and LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts. The tag inside has a motivational sentiment from ALL ABOUT YOU.

 The #2 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: CHEVRON Confetti Cuts and TAG ME Confetti Cuts. The sentiment on the inside tag was cut on my Silhouette.

 The #1 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts , OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts, and TAG ME Confetti Cuts. The tag inside uses the PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts again, as well as a sentiment from WINNING and a star accent from OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts.

One last view, from the side:

chemocountdown4

This same idea could easily be repurposed for any type of countdown, or simply used as a mini-album for photos, a collection of favorite quotes, funny kid sayings, even a collection of gift cards for a teacher or coach.

Hello there, ‘Fetti Fans!

Do you have your badge?  Get it HERE.

Fetti Fan Badge

. . . . .

The weekend is in view!  Do you have anything fun planned?  We are having a get together with another family for some Halloween fun.  I’m looking forward to preparing/eating Halloween themed foods and letting the kids make Zombie Goo (slime).  I’ll post pics of the good times next week.

Any other pics you want to see?…like, maybe a super duper sneak peek of the November release?  Hmmm… (wink).

. . . . .

I love Thursdays here on the Reverse Confetti blog!  Why?  Because it’s 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.

3) For this round we have been focusing on ABC (anything but a card) project.  Prepare to be inspired!

Today on Confetti Camera we have the ridiculously talented (and just as sweet), LAURIE SCHMIDLIN

Hi Confetti fans! Laurie here to share a couple of fun Fall ABC Projects (Anything But a Card/Tag)!

Having a lot of kids means having a lot of cards and gifts to give around the Holidays! With Halloween and Thanksgiving approaching quickly, I thought I had better get started on those! Two of my sons go to a small rural school which has only a handful of students in it. I like to give out small gifts this time of year, but because I still have a toddler to tend to, I need something that I can mass produce in a short amount of time. This first box is one that I will be making for Halloween.

 Ghostie Box by Laurie Schmidlin

I started by stamping the fence image (from the SPOOKY CUTIES set) onto the acetate box using Black Stazon ink. A tip that I have found to help me when stamping on very slippery surfaces is to make sure I hold the stamp straight over the surface (not at an angle). I added the cute ghostie to the front of the box, popping him up so that he appears to be floating. I stamped the sentiment (from the SPOOKY SENTIMENTS set) using Black Stazon ink.

 Ghostie Box (Detail) by Laurie Schmidlin

 . . . . .

My next box is one that I will be giving to my sons’ teachers for Thanksgiving. I started by using the TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die to create the treat box. To decorate the front, I stamped the woodgrain image (from the FOREVER FALL set) onto strips of matching cardstock and then sponged the edges a bit with a dark ink. The label was created by stamping the sentiment from the Give Thanks stamp set and cutting it outusing the coordinating GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die set. I filled the box with a clear bag of mixed roasted nuts. I also might add some homemade candied almonds…mmmmm!

 Bountiful Blessings Treat Box by Laurie Schmidlin

I hope this has inspired you to come up with an easy to mass produce gift item! They don’t need to take a lot of time to be super cute and heartfelt!

WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on October 17, 2014

TGIF!

Ever have on of those weeks?  Yep, it’s been one of those.  I realized yesterday that I haven’t had a chance to create anything and today, I am setting aside some time to do just that.  I have a feeling my perspective on things might just be a little sunnier after that happens (and during, too).  What have you been up to creatively this week?  Have you had a chance to play along in this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY?  If not, check it out HERE and play along for a fun chance to win.

. . . . .

Being that it is Friday, it is time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to lately.
