WEEK IN REVERSE

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Friday and time to take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Lisa’s take on the “Tab Tuck Card” (name courtesy of Confetti Crew member, Sarah) using the new CLASS ACT stamp set and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts (along with arrows from ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS)  is absolutely FABULOUS (and it uses March’s Color Challenge colors, too!)…

Lisa also made this darling cheerful Easter card using CARTON CUTIES stamp and CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts…

**For those waiting on Carton Cuties Confetti Cuts, we are awaiting our shipment.  They were sent overnight from the manufacturer… to the wrong address.  Ahhh!!   Thank you for your patience as they make their way to us!**

Sarah’s take on the color challenge with the PETALS ‘N POSIES and I LIKE YOU stamp sets along with the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set is just gorgeous!

Amber did a whole lot of mixing and matching of Reverse Confetti products on this card!!  How many can you spot?  Here’s the breakdown on what was used… PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set with the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts; BEAUTIFUL BANNERS stamp set and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts; ALL ABOUT YOU stamp set; SO STRIPEY stamp set; LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and finally, the tab from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set…

Seriously, every time I looked at this card I saw something new! Wow!

Stacey’s style is just so fun!  Love how she layered the colors from the March Color Challenge in the great card using GO TOGETHER from our Key Words Collection…

I’m loving this birthday card from Val using the WHOLE LOTTA DOTS and ALL ABOUT YOU stamp sets paired with the TAG ME and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts.

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Jen here with a quick note, before we get to today’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY post from Confetti Crew member, Heather…

Just as a reminder, our shipping department is closed for new orders until 3/20.  We will be checking emails, but please note that there may be a slight delay in response times as we settle into our new home and office.

Two of my favorite sets from this month’s release are PETALS ‘N POSIES and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS, I love how well they coordinate together!

 031814

To create my card, I first started by stamping the flower centers from Petals ‘n Posies onto vellum, and heat embossing them with white embossing powder.  Next, I used the coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts to die cut a few different flower shapes.  Once that was done, I assembled the flowers with pop dots of varying thickness.

 031814 CU

I then stamped one of the stripe strips from SO STRIPEY (haha, say that five times fast!) on a diagonal slant, before heat embossing with white embossing powder.  I trimmed the end of the  turquoise card stock to give it a banner shape.  Next, I stamped one of the banner images and sentiments from Beautiful Banners onto white card stock.  To cut it out, I used the coordinating BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts.

To finish up the card, I created a 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base in white, and layered it with gray polka dot patterned paper before adding some coral twine.  I attached the striped strip, flowers and banner to the card front before embellishing with white enamel dots.

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

Well hello there, ‘Fetti fans!!

AmberIntroPic

Amber here today with Time for a Card Tuesday! I’m so excited I get to hijack the RC blog today and share a card with you:)

By now, you should have ordered yourself some new RC goodies, right? I mean, that was one fabulous release. So many fun new stamps and dies.

Today I have a card to share with you made with PETALS ‘n POSIES and the coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set.

 WishYouWell1a

I used this week’s Retro Sketch for the layout and some fun, springy colors.  I embossed the kraft cardstock with the Chain embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts and then added a scalloped border I created with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts. I also used the same scallop border on the yellow panel. For the sentiment, I cut the sentiment into a couple different pieces so I could use them on different lines. I do this often, it makes the stamps that much more versatile. If you don’t want to cut your stamp, you could always mask of the part you don’t want to ink and then stamp, and then mask off the other side and stamp again.

 WishYouWell1c

I have a whole bunch of these flowers already cut out and stored with my dies so I can pull them out and stamp right away. I used some yellows and blues for my flowers and then of course, the green leaf sprig.

WishYouWell1b

I finished the card off with a half of a doily and a rhinestone. Here’s a picture of the supplies I used:

I am so happy to share with you a couple of projects using many of the new release products.  My first project is a shaker card that I made for my sweet daughter using the new KEY WORDS COLLECTION set, ALL ABOUT YOU, along with the new PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set (and the previously released DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die)…

I don’t like taking a whole lot of time on the inside of cards, but it’s always nice to dress them up a little with some die cuts and a simple sentiment (shown here stamped on the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set-which is also used on the front of the card).

Spring may not be in the air, but it certainly is in mind.  Fresh flowers and outdoor fun are just what inspired the two sets that we are featuring today.

Introducing PETALS ‘N POSIES, a fresh and fun set that can be used over and over year round…

PetalsPosiesProductGraphicSheet250

And, the coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set…

PetalsNPosiesConfettiCuts

This fabulous floral set pairs perfectly with our new BEAUTIFUL BANNERS set, too…

BeautifulBannersProductGraphicSheet250

And, its coordinating CONFETTI CUTS die set…

BeautifulBannersConfettiCuts

Both of these stamp sets and their coordinating Confetti Cuts are awesome on their own, but put them together and the possibilities are endless!

Here I combined them on a tag (TAG ME Confetti Cuts) attached to a gable box to give this giftie a punch of color and a great personal touch…

PnPGableBoxTag

PETALS ‘N POSIES contains different size and different pattern florals and floral elements that are fun to play mix ‘n match with to create a variety of looks.  As you can see, I layered the larger 5 petal flower with the smaller polka dot version of it (popped up with a glue dot).  I stamped and cut a couple of the leaf swags out and snipped them apart to create just the look I wanted.  The sentiment is also from the PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set and I curved it a little to fit nicely with the curved banner stamp that is cut from its coordinating BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts die…

PnPTag

. . . . .

My second project today is a card that features the PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp and coordinating Confetti Cuts die set, along with a die cut of one of the banners from the BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts set.  I love to be able to use die cuts as elements, not just to go with the coordinating stamp (2x the amount of use!).  Here I used it to ground the group of flowers and leaves against the white scalloped rectangle (LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts).

Sympathy

. . . . .

On the flip side, for this project I used the BEAUTIFUL BANNERS stamp set and coordinating Confetti Cuts set, but only used the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts set (again, loving that these can be used with or without the stamp set for double the use).  These die cuts were easily adorned with some white and clear sequins to give this monochromatic card a little bit of pizazz…

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