FEBRUARY SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By admin
on February 01, 2015

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Sunday!

Yes, I’m blogging on a Sunday.  That means that something fun and exciting is happening over here!  It’s time for a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!

Here’s this month’s sketch…

SFYTT21_Feb15

. . . . .

Here are all the details you need to know…

Before I get to all the wonderful inspiration that the Confetti Crew came up with using this sketch, let’s go over the details…

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 27th. 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 28th of this month.

. . . . .

Here’s my take on the sketch using DONUT YOU KNOW and DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts on the focal panel…

SFYTT1

In addition to the DONUT YOU KNOW stamps and Confetti Cuts dies, I also used the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die along the left side of the red chevron panel and the flag ended banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set on the two flag ended banners hanging from the top.

Detail shot of the card, along with the icing and sprinkles…

SFYTT12

To get the glazed looked on the icing, I used Ranger Enamel Accents and then added glass glitter and sprinkles (cut from the DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts dies).

SFYTT13

. . . . .

Of course, the Confetti Crew has some wonderful inspiration using this sketch, too!

WEEK IN REVERSE

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Friday (and Super Bowl weekend).

Do you have fun plans for the game?  I have to admit, we’re going to be duds and just hang out at home.  I’m more interested in the commercials than the teams playing this year.  I guess that’s just about every year though, but sometimes cheering occurs in between the commercials, too.  My (8 year old) daughter is excited to see Katy Perry perform at half-time.  I’m crossing my fingers for no wardrobe malfunctions, etc!

. . . . .

It’s Friday, so you know what that means…

SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By admin

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Monday (kind of an oxymoron if you ask me).  I do hope your week is kicking off to a great start!

The January SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY is still open for just a couple of more days.  There are lots of FABULOUS entries so far!  We’d love if you play along, too, for a chance to win a gift certificate to the store (think of it as free stuff you get to pick out yourself).

Here’s this month’s sketch…

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans!

Thank you all SO MUCH for the love and comments over the last few days!  We are so excited that the 6 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts and brand new QUICK CARD PANELS are now in the REVERSE CONFETTI STORE!

NowAvailable

. . . . .

We will be off the CHA later today, but packaging as many orders as we can before we leave.  Shipping will resume bright and early on Tuesday.  Thank you for your patience.  If you are also going to be at CHA, we hope to see you and give you a big Reverse Confetti hug!

. . . . .

We’re Hoppin’!

To celebrate the new release, the Confetti Crew has put together a fabulous hop with a ton of “Confetti Creativity” using the new stamps, Confetti Cuts dies and QUICK CARD PANELS.

Note, there is a full list of hoppers at the bottom of this post in case there are any breaks along the way.

. . . . .

We’ve had such a fabulous response to our brand new Quick Card Panels!  They’re perfectly sized for your A2 cards, but can be cut down and used in many other ways.  These are limited edition, so grab them while you can…

I have several new projects to share with you using these new products.  I just couldn’t stop playing!

My first card features 2 large heart images from the playful and sweet new HEART TO HEART stamp set, as well as the HEART TO HEART Confetti Cuts dies, PRETTY PANELS: BIG CHEVRON Confetti Cuts die and DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set (rounded rectangle)…

LoveToLove1

The PRETTY PANELS: BIG CHEVRON Confetti Cuts die is layered with the rounded rectangle from CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts (made to play together).  Detail shot…

This next card uses the new PUPPY LOVE stamp set, PUPPY LOVE Confetti Cuts dies, HAPPY HEART DAY Quick Card Panels and SQUARE TAG Confetti Cuts die (and, previously released, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die)…

PuppyLove2_1

Detail shot (isn’t she just too cute!?!)…

. . . . .

Next up is a project I created using the new sets HERE’S THE STORY, RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW, as well as the new DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set (and, previously released, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set)…

Frame1

This is frame that I picked up from a bin at Michaels.  It’s been sitting in my “do something with this” stash (everyone has one of these, right?).  I took out the glass so that I could make my project more dimensional.  I was able to make it a shadowbox(ish) by putting in the mat (covered with a piece of patterned paper cut to match) and then pressing down the tabs on the back to secure it.  I then added the back of the frame on top of the tabs that were pressed down and secured to frame with tape.  I was fortunate that the back of the frame sat on top on the tabs and was flush with the frame base.

Detail shots…

Frame3

Sewn hearts (cut from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts) and sentiment from HERE’S THE STORY

This card uses the new LOVE BLOOMS stamps and LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts die set.  I love how clean it looks and how the flowers pop off the white background…

LoveBlooms2

Detail shot of the heat embossed sentiment (on circle cut from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts) and florals…

. . . . .

One more project and then I am sending you on your way to see all of the other Confetti Crew creations.

This final project features the new SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS stamp set and SQUARE TAG in a way that is perfect for a guy’s Valentine or for anytime you want to give someone a sweet pat on the back…

YouRock1

I “popped” Pop Rocks into a chevron glassine bag and paired it with an embellished SQUARE TAG Confetti Cuts die (flag-ended piece from TAG ME Confetti Cuts and stars from OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts) and attached it with a mini clothespin.  Detail shot…

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW, HERE’S THE STORY & DOCUMENTED

By admin
on January 06, 2015

Greetings ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s DAY TWO of our sneak peeks, a.k.a. THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  We are beyond excited that in just a couple of days 6 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts die sets and the brand spankin’ new (limited edition) QUICK CARD PANELS will be available.

Before I get rollin’ on all the Confetti creativity that we have in store for you today, I want to wish my lil’ man a very HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY!  Wow, has time flown by!

This is one of my favorite pics of Nic running through the sprinklers, age 3.

 

. . . . .

ReadyForConfetti

Just a note…all of our releases will happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month.  We will release new product every other month.  We’ll still be hopping on the 8th, whether there is a release or not.  Just remember, “Eight is Great!”

. . . . .

Don’t forget to leave a comment here and on each sneak peek post this week for a chance to win!

In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion.  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic…

***JUST A LITTLE FYI: I copied and pasted the November info on Facebook, so it says November but it’s supposed to say January.  Unfortunately, Facebook won’t let me edit.  The one pinned to the top of the page is the right one (just with the wrong date).***

NextRelease

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on January 7th will be randomly chosen to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Winners for both the blog comments and Facebook comments will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog as well as on Facebook.

. . . . .

Today, we are introducing a few more of the 6 new stamp sets and 8 new Confetti Cuts dies releasing on January 8th.  Of course, you’ll see some more of the new QUICK CARD PANELS on design team projects, too!

Introducing…

RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW

And, the perfect Confetti Cuts die set to coordinate with these two sets…

DOCUMENTED

DocumentedCCProductGraphic

The stamp stamp sets and Confetti Cuts dies are perfect for pocket scrapping, traditional scrapping, as well as card making and everyday paper crafting projects!

I had so fun with these stamps and dies while creating this set of 6 panels, which can be used either in pocket scrapping or as panels on a card…

AllPocketCards

Detail shots of each panel…

Recognize that ampersand from my project yesterday?  I have a feeling that I’ll be reaching for that die and the flag (stitched down the side) quite a bit, as they’re such a fun lil’ elements!

(heart from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts)

HeresTheStory

I added a border cut with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die on this one for added detail.

HeyBaby

I can see this one getting popped on a card front!  The word “love” is cut from the new PRETTY PANELS: HEART LOVE Confetti Cuts die (see below for product graphic).

Love

The “on this date” circle can easily be punched with a 1″ circle punch.  I used it in a scrappy “collage” here with hearts from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and the smaller scalloped circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts.

OnThisDate

Simple layouts are simply the best!

SimplyTheBest

This geotag symbol with stitched detail is a fun added element!  I layered it here with the smallest circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts.

There are 3 PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts dies that are being released on January 8.  Here’s the 2nd reveal (although you probably have seen all 3 on Confetti Crew members’ blogs)…
