on September 26, 2014

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…

Sept14Color

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…

. . . . .

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…

08colordetail

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

One more shot of this card…

Say Hello To Our ‘Fetti Friend

By admin
on July 03, 2014

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

There’s no Confetti Camera today, but rather, I would like to introduce you to our ‘Fetti Friend (guest designer) for July and August…

Monika

A little bit about the ever so talented Monika in her own words…

Hi, my name is Monika Davis aka buzsy. I live in beautiful New Hampshire with my two boys and supportive hubby. I am a SAHM. I was born and raised in Hungary, but have been living in the US for 18 years. I’ve been stamping on and off for about 13 years. It’s my passion, my hobby, and my lifestyle! Through crafting I’ve made so many wonderful friends. It is a wonderful community with so much love and positive energy. I’ve been on a number of Design and Challenge teams, and have been published in a number of magazines. I am so honored to work with the Reverse Confetti team! 

ReverseConfettiTagFeather

. . . . .

I just *love* how she says that it is part of her lifestyle!  Isn’t that the truth for so many of us?  For me, it’s what started as a hobby, grew into a little bit more when I met more like-minded creative people and from there it grew and grew into more than I could have ever imagined!

Week In Reverse

By admin
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!

PEACOCK PRETTIES, PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts

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

PEACOCK PRETTIES, LOTS TO SAY

Stacey’s card is fun and full of color!  I love the combo of stamps here!

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on February 27, 2014

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.

I hope you all have some fun weekend activities planned.  If you are local, be sure to stop by The Little Blue House booth at the Scrapbook Expo for a Reverse Confetti Make-n-Take on Saturday between 10-1.  See you there!

It’s Friday and time for Week in Reverse where we take a peek back at what the fabulous designers that make up the Confetti Crew have been up to with their Reverse Confetti stamps!

Heather knows how to rock clean and simple.  I love the details and textures used here.

I was amazed how many sets that Sarah used to create this fabulous card.  I love that it’s so easy to mix and match Reverse Confetti stamps (and, yes, we do that on purpose)!

In contrast, Leigh’s lighter base is equally as powerful…and beautiful!

Another crazy week gone by!  For those of you following our housing adventure…we have accepted an offer on our house (YAY!).  We are still on the hunt for one to move into, and we will see how that all pans out in the next few weeks.  We just backed out of one due to some (multiple) issues with the home.  I think it was God’s way of saying that it wasn’t the one for our happy family.  I look forward to being off of real estate web sites this weekend and having my nose buried in my sketch book prepping for upcoming releases!  I need the break and my mojo needs a boost!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and time for WEEK IN REVERSE, where we take a peek back on what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Love is in the air!  I just love the projects that I am seeing from both the Confetti Crew and YOU!
