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.

OCTOBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By admin
on October 01, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Can you believe it’s already October?  I’d love to say that fall is in the air, but it’s still hot and humid here in Houston.  I’m crossing my fingers in hope.

With or without the changing of the leaves, it is time for the new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

Oct14

The Confetti Crew has whipped up some fabulous inspiration, but let’s go over the details of this challenge first (notice the new dates!)…

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 each month.

. . . . .

I know that you will have a blast with this sketch!  Feel free to make it your own, as long the sketch can still be recognized on your project.

Here’s my take on the sketch using GIVE THANKS, CAST A SPELL, SO MANY STARS, GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts, CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts

SFYTTOct143

I love making my own patterned paper.  To do that, I used a couple of different stars from the SO MANY STARS on the green panel.

I added the the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts in orange on the side of the right rectangular panel because it was desperately needing a pop of color.  I love how it looks!

SFYTTOct142

For my finishing touches, I added the crow from the CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts die set that I covered in Diamond Glaze, as well as a few sequins.

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on September 25, 2014

Hello, hello, ‘Fetti Fans!

The weekend is in view and boy, oh boy, am I ready for it!  Football, birthday parties, my anniversary and my feet up…sounds like a plan to me!

But, alas, the weekend isn’t here quite yet.  However, we still have fun things happening right here on the Reverse Confetti blog.  It’s Thursday and 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.

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 fun and fabulous, AMBER HIGHT

AmberIntroPic

Hello ‘Fetti Fans! Hope everyone is having a great week so far, I can’t believe it’s already Thursday! Thursday bring Confetti Camera here on the Reverse Confetti blog. This round, we’re creating ABC projects. I’m not big on projects or treat bags/boxes, I’m a card girl. Ha! But I’m also a VORACIOUS READER and love anything to do with books! I was thinking, what could I create that I could use for reading? A bookmark of course! I’m always on the look out for cute bookmarks, so it was really fun to make my own!

 PicC

I created a bookmark out of several Reverse Confetti Confetti Cuts and the PAPER CRANE stamp set. When going through my RC collection, I was looking for sentiments that I could use on a bookmark, and thought these sentiments from PAPER CRANE worked perfectly!

 PicA

I started out with my CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts and cut out the largest scalloped circle in turquoise, and then the next smallest plane circle in white watercolor paper. I made a little pallette of Peeled Paint distress ink and swiped the circles through the ink a few times and dried, then swiped through the wet ink and dried again until I got the amazing watercolor’y look I was going for. Unfortunately it got mostly covered up, but fortunately it’s with adorable RC Confetti Cuts, ha!  Next, I cut several flowers with the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts and stamped the matching stamps from PETALS ‘N POSIES in various ink colors. I cut a couple small labels from the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts and then stamped the sentiments from PAPER CRANE. I took a piece of ribbon and glued it in the middle of the scalloped and plane circles and that’s the bookmark. Super simple and super fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, hope you have time today to get inky!

CUTTING EDGE HOP

By admin
on August 22, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Today we have a TON of inspiration on the blog!  This is actually the second post for the day.  If you came here looking for the WEEK IN REVERSE, just scroll on down after you are done reading this post.

What is this post?…it’s super fun and exciting!  Reverse Confetti is pleased to be a sponsor for THE CUTTING EDGE blog hop…

cuttingedge

You’re invited to play along in this blog hop!  It officially opened today and will close on August  25th at 11:55pm PST.  This hop is being hosted by the fabulous Paulina of Pretty Pink Posh.  You can link up your creation and find out more details on the PPP blog HERE.

I had so much fun creating for this hop!  I love using my Confetti Cuts dies and I used a *few* of them together on this card…

PPPHopCard

The main panel consists of the following Confetti Cuts:

TAG ME

CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS

PETALS ‘N POSIES

Detail shot of the flowers cut from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts set (the centers are stamped with images from the coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set).  The sentiment is from the LOTS TO SAY stamp set and is heat embossed…

PPPHopCardDetail

Don’t you just love those Pretty Pink Posh sequins?!

When people see my cards in person, they are often surprised at my layers and use of dimensional adhesive.  I thought I’d include a “depth” shot so you could see it on this card…

PPPHopCardDetail1

In addition to using the above mentioned Confetti Cuts dies, I also used the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts die set to create a tab tuck.

You can see the video how-to HERE.

Amber, please email info@reverseconfetti.com to claim your prize!

Being that it is Tuesday, it is TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

ThankYouBunches

When I sat down to create this card, I had new I wanted to create a scrappy card.  I dug through my Confetti Cuts dies and grabbed a few that I wanted to work with.  I originally had 2 large hearts where the flowers are, but then switched over to the flowers when I grabbed this set for a sentiment.

Wanna know a secret?

There’s a pink polka dot flower under the pink solid flower.  I smeared the ink from the dots in the center and  took “the opportunity to embellish” with the larger solid flower I had already stamped and cut sitting on my desk.

The flowers are stamped from the PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set and the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set.  The leaves are cut from the FRESH ‘N FRUITY Confetti Cuts die set.

ThankYouBunches3

Under the flowers, I cut a panel from the CHEVRON PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts die set in white and layered it over a light gray panel.  The fun and chunky notebook paper panel is cut from the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts die set.

ThankYouBunches2

Poppin’ this one into my stash…and I just might make a few more just like it!

Hey ‘Fetti Fans!

The weekend is in view…wahooo!

It’s Thursday and time for another great 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:

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 a few of their favorites to pair together on their project.

. . . . .

Today on Confetti Camera we have a project from the very talented, JONI ANDAYA

JoniIntroPic

Hello Joni here, for my card I used the FABULOUS FLAMINGO, FABULOUS FLAMINGO Confetti Cuts, PETALS ‘N POSIES, PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts, and the DIAGONAL STRIPE PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts…

thanksAB-rc

I wanted to create another look for the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set. For my flamingo, I created a sorta scarf look using vellum with the sentiment “Thanks A Bunch” from PETALS ‘ POSIES (flowers and leaves cut from coordinating Confetti Cuts die set).

thanksAB2-rc

This will also work for holiday cards, as the image can easily change with different colors we can change the scarf with red vellum or red cardstock instead; I think that would be festive. I really like the scarf look I hope you agree.
