Confetti Camera

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans!

Jen here and I am excited to be back from CHA with a renewed creative energy that will sure translate into more wonderful things for Reverse Confetti.  We have been working tirelessly to get all of the orders from the release out the door.  Keep an eye on those mailboxes, as your new RC goodies should be there very soon…if not already!

This is the final day for this round of Confetti Camera.  A new round begins in just a couple of weeks.  We hope that you have enjoyed the “Set ’em Up” projects that the fabulous Confetti Crew designers have shared with you.

A little bit about 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 each of our designers will be coming up with a SET of something. You’ll see gift sets, card sets, pocket scrapping sets and much more this time around.

A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will follow the same theme 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.

In the spotlight today is the lovely and talented, Heather Pulvirenti…

Hi ‘Fetti Fans! Heather P. here today with my take on the “Set ’em Up” theme.  For my project today, I’ve created two mini-sets of Project Life cards using most of the items from January’s release, as well as some of my favorite go-to dies from prior releases.

011416

To create my cards, I started by die cutting all of the QCPs from both sets with the large rectangle die from the Documented Confetti Cuts.  Once that was done, I started cutting the elements to use on the first set of cards:

Purple Card – heart strip from Love Note Confetti Cuts, die cut sentiment from Lovey Words Confetti Cuts

Gray Card – penguin, hearts and sentiment from S’more Love and S’more Love Confetti Cuts, white frame from Stamped Note Confetti Cuts

011416CU1

Teal Card – solid heart from Love Note Confetti Cuts, outline heart from Stamped Note Confetti Cuts, stamped sentiment from Lovey Words Coordinates, die cut sentiment from Lovey Words Confetti Cuts, scallop border from Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts

The penguin, hat and hearts were first stamped in Versafine ink onto watercolor card stock, then heat set with clear embossing powder.  I then colored the images with watercolor markers and set them aside to dry.  While I was waiting for the images to dry, I assembled the first set of cards as shown.  Once the images were dry, they were cut out with their coordinating Confetti Cuts and attached to the gray card front.

I then die cut the elements to use on the second set of cards:

Orange Card – frame from Love Note Confetti Cuts, die cut sentiment from Lovey Word Confetti Cuts, heart from Stamped Note Confetti CutsDiagonal Stripe Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts

Pink Card – penguin, fire and marshmallow from S’more Love and S’more Love Confetti CutsHeart Tag Toppers Confetti CutsStraight Stripes Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts

011416CU2

Yellow Card – Circles ‘n ScallopsLabeledGive Thanks Label Confetti CutsLayered Laurel Confetti Cuts

The penguin, hat, marshmallow and fire were first stamped in Versafine ink onto watercolor card stock, then heat set with clear embossing powder.  I then colored the images with watercolor markers and set them aside to dry.  While I was waiting for the images to dry, I assembled the second set of cards as shown.  Once the images were dry, they were cut out with their coordinating Confetti Cuts and attached to the pink card front.

Well, that wraps it up for me today, but be sure to come back tomorrow for more Reverse Confetti inspiration!

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.

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!

. . . . .

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.
