Hey ‘Fetti Fans!

I have soooo much inky goodness to share with you today!

First, our September Color Challenge is coming to a close very soon.  There are just a few more days to get your project submitted for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  All the details and the link list to upload your project to can be found right HERE.

Another peek at this month’s colors…

And, a little announcement…this is the last color challenge for Reverse Confetti.  Why?  Well, to be honest, my heart just isn’t in this challenge.  I started SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY years ago on my old blog (now defunct since I didn’t update my php) and I want to focus on that being the challenge for Reverse Confetti.  I promise there are some fabulous sketches coming your way!  Stay tuned, the next one is coming up October 1st!

Here’s some more fabulous inspiration from the Confetti Crew for our very last Color Challenge…

SFYTT WINNER & CONFETTI CAMERA

on May 15, 2014

Hello and Happy Thursday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Thanks to all that played along in the May SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY and congrats to our winner…

maysfyttwin

Here’s her flipped sketch card using a sentiment from CARTON CUTIES and felt cut flowers from PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts…

Barb, please email info@reverseconfetti.com to claim your $20 Reverse Confetti gift certificate.

. . . . .

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 points down under to the fabulously talented and super sweet, SARAH GOUGH

SarahIntroPic

Hi ‘Fetti fans! Today I’m pairing one of my favorite Reverse Confetti sets, PAPER CRANE, with the newly released LABEL ME. I thought the angles in these sets would be complimentary, and I worked  diagonals into my overall design.

confetticameraSarahGoughMay (1)

Label Me contains gorgeous sentiments, but also works so well with tons of other Reverse Confetti sentiments. I’ve used the matching Confetti Cuts for a perfect border. The crane was stamped with gold ink on a very light vellum, and fussy cut to peek out from behind the label.

I’ve gone with a simple layout, but continued the angled theme by trimming the ends of the vertical paper pieces with my trimmer, and by stamping the outline arrows from Paper Crane in opposing corners.

 confetticameraSarahGoughMay (2)

 I finished off with some gold sequins for even more shine, and to help draw the eye into the center of the card.

For my color challenge card, I reached for the set PAPER CRANE

Color

I love that origami images are trending within the paper crafting industry!  The PAPER CRANE set features, you guessed it, a paper crane along with several geometric patterns and sentiments.  I embossed the solid triangles on the bottom and then stamped the outlined triangles in white pigment.  I mimicked the triangles with the zig-zag stitching on the center right of the card, as well as the triangles embossed on the main image panel.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on April 02, 2014

Hello and Happy Wednesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

We are settling in nicely here in Cypress, TX…and prepping for our first house guests this week.  Needless to say, there hasn’t been a dull moment around here for the past couple weeks! If there are any local ‘Fetti Fans out there, please let me know!

. . . . .

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.

While I have been keeping busy with all of the behind the scenes stuff for Reverse Confetti, my “studio time” has been next to nothing (sniffle, sniffle).  I did, however, get a little play time last week.  I am sure that many of you can relate to what happens when you are away from your stamps/inks/dies for a while…the mojo is a no go.  So, today I want to chat a little bit about the process I went through to create these cards, which ended up being some of my faves of all time.

The first thing I did was grab some paper I that I bought before the move.  I swear it has been calling my name every time I walk into my office!  Next, I thought about a few of the “techniques” or things that I have liked about past projects and I came up with layering the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die along with the large tag from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.  I really love creating “tab tuck” cards (created with the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts – tutorial HERE), too, so I put those few things together and came up with this card trio…

CardTrio

I dressed up the layered LOVE NOTE and TAG ME Confetti Cuts with the new PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts.

The tag is stamped with a sentiment from the PAPER CRANE set and was chosen because I thought it was a great sentiment for these cards that are going to the kiddos’ teachers.

CardTrio_detail1

This is just me having some fun with my new camera.  For inquiring minds…SonyHX300.  I have had my eye on a Nikon SLR for a long time, but I haven’t wanted to make that kind of investment.  I came across this one on clearance at Target and I am LOVING it!  Easy to use and I really like the picture quality.

Week In Reverse

on March 28, 2014

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

I hope everyone has fun weekend plans ahead.  It’s more of the same here for the del Muro household…these boxes just will not end!  Of course, a little exploring time and R&R are most definitely in the works, as well as some time to GET INKY!  I had a chance to create yesterday and it felt so good to play again!  I’ll be sharing what I made next week.

Right now it’s time to take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has done this week in the WEEK IN REVERSE.

Lisa did a great job of combining sets to create this fun, sports themed card.

ALL ABOUT YOU, PETALS ‘N POSIES, BEAUTIFUL BANNERS

Val had fun mixing and matching a variety of Confetti Cuts die sets to create this darling journal for a lil’ friend of hers.

TAG ME, PETALS ‘N POSIES, OFFICE EDGES, LOVE NOTE, WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

Val also created this card that I am swooning over!

PETALS ‘N POSIES, PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, ALL ABOUT YOU, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

Leigh’s card is so soft and elegant.  I love the multi-colored feather.

PAPER CRANE, PEACOCK PRETTIES

With Teacher Appreciate just around the corner, Amber is the perfect muse with this card!

CLASS ACT, CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts

Sarah’s card is a showstopper!

Heather never ceases to amaze me with her use of PEACOCK PRETTIES (and embossing powder)!

WEEK IN REVERSE

Howdy and TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans!

For those following our relocation…more of the same happening over here in the del Muro household…hurry up and wait.  Everyone needs a decision about this or that here and now, but on the flipside we are just sitting and waiting and trying to get ready to go.  I still have ants in my pants about not being able to pack up anything so I’m just sorting a few things and getting ready of the release…NEXT SATURDAY!  Getting inky has been able to take my mind off of the move a little…thank goodness!  More updates to come as the move date approaches (mid-March).  Until then, the focus is here…

Before we get to the WEEK IN REVERSE portion of this post, we need to get a drumroll going for this month’s COLOR CHALLENGE WINNER…

winner_color

Here’s Cathy’s card using the February colors: cranberry, light blue and gray along with the HAPPY HARBOR stamp set and TAG ME Confetti Cuts…

Cathy, please email info@reverseconfetti.com for your prize.

Thank you to everyone that played along.  The submissions were absolutely INCREDIBLE…as always.  It makes my heart swell to see all your Reverse Confetti creations!

It’s Friday and time for WEEK IN REVERSE, where we take a look back at what the most awesome design team, The Confetti Crew, has been up to this week.

Susan broke out her Copics and played with FREIDA FOX this week!  Isn’t she darling?  And, if you are wondering…we will soon be introducing you to a friend of hers!

I like card making, but I LOVE seeing Reverse Confetti stamps and Confetti Cuts dies being used in a variety of paper crafting project, like Leigh’s beautiful scrapbook page featuring SWEET THING and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.  You can also see Leigh on this week’s Confetti Camera post (Thursday, 2/27).

Another great ABC (anything but a card) project from Amber using SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, SWEET THING and WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS.

Sarah says she’s on a tag making kick…I think I’ve been on one of those for the last few years! It’s easy with the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set (and ARROW Confetti Cuts, too)!  Here she paired it with CRUSHIN’ and WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS for a very sweet giftie…

Pink+Orange+INNER ROCK STAR= awesome cards from Stacey and Heather!

Heather created part of her background with WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, too.

As proven above, great minds think alike.  I love all the positive energy coming from the PAPER CRANE set!  Lisa, Susan and Amy all inked it up this week for wonderfully creative and original designs…

Susan’s card also uses WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS and the TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

Amy also added the TAG ME Confetti Cuts to her creation.

Amber also used PAPER CRANE this week.  Her creation features on of the other sentiments and a very cool layout!

Amy K.’s card is a cool collection of a variety of Reverse Confetti products including the Christmas(!!) set, BRING ON THE MERRY, INNER ROCK STAR and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

2.27.14

Amy S.’ GO TOGETHER card with those darling die cuts to match the oh-so-perfect sentiment makes me smile!

Val shares more than moolah on her blog.  You can check out her Pocket Tag tutorial using  HERE.  Such a fun card (and tag!) and she always WOWS me with how she combines her RC products.  On this card she used CRUSHIN’, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS, SWEET THING and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

See you tomorrow with a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!

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.

Today the spotlight is on Confetti Crew member, LEIGH PENNER,

LeighIntroPic

Her Confetti Camera project…

IMGP5349

I love the feather image in the PEACOCK PRETTIES stamp set — it’s so fun & beautiful!

I was trying to figure out how I could “colour” it in so that the circle, the heart and the body of the feather were all different colours.

I decided to try doing this with some Pigment Pearls.

 Here’s what I did:

I stamped my feather onto some vellum with the Perfect Pearls medium.

Then, with a brush, I coloured in each section, using a different colour of pearls.

I decided to make a different feather and changed up the colouring slightly. I fussy cut them both out by hand.

Then, when assembled my card, I used the border stamp in the Peacock Pretties set and used the same technique to colour it in along the bottom of my card.

 IMGP5352

I just love how it shimmers in the light!

I stamped my sentiment (from PAPER CRANE), which ties everything together nicely.
