TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By Jen del Muro
on February 24, 2015

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Tuesday!

I hope you all are keeping safe and warm!  I rushed home from the DFW area due to an impending ice storm and cheerfully arrived to a balmy 75*…and then woke up to 38* this morning and the mercury didn’t move upward much.  Gotta love Texas like that!  I am seriously ready for flip-flop weather! Can I get an AMEN?

. . . . .

It’s Tuesday and that means TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

I know that some might think that I live under a rock having only recently “discovered” Distress Inks.  It’s not that I haven’t know about them; it’s just that I’ve kinda steered away from them.  As you know, I’m a self proclaimed “non-techniquey” person, so these didn’t immediately speak to me.  But now that I’ve had a chance to play with them, I like them and the way they work with Reverse Confetti products.

Here’s a card I did where I basically created my own “patterned” paper with them and then used a large circle stamp from the ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set in a coordinating color to create a clean and simple, yet eye-catching card…

BirthdayWishes

The splash effect on the Distressed Inked panel was created simply by splashing water on the completed/colored panel.

The “birthday wishes” sentiment is cut with the coordinating CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set.

Hello and TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans!

I am definitely looking forward to this weekend!  The weather is supposed to be beautiful and I am excited to spend some quality time outside with the littles and my hubby.  I think I’ve convinced them to help me wash/clean out my car.  We’ll see if they are anywhere to be found when it comes time for that, though!

It’s a super special weekend at Reverse Confetti, too!  Sunday is our (monthly) blog hop and I promise you do not want to miss it!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

We’ve got a great WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS here for you today!

Confetti Crew member, Sarah, shares how to make this darling giftie…

WIWdecSarahGough (3)

Hello, Sarah here!  I love giving little gift baskets to family that come in from out of town – no one needs to pay mini bar prices for a late night snack right?! Here I’ve taken a cute but plain little shopping basket and added a bright shaped tag using lots of Reverse Confetti goodies! I think this would make a perfect neighbor gift as well!

Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

TGIF…really!  I thought it was Thursday on Wednesday, so imagine my surprise (and slight disappointment) when I came to realize that I was a day ahead of myself!  I even got on my daughter’s case for not having her weekly homework done for Friday.  Oops!  No wonder she was looking at me like I had two heads.  I’m going to go ahead and say that this is probably not the first or last time that she will think that I am crazy (or that I will make a parenting mistake, for that matter).

It’s hard to believe that just a week from now Thanksgiving will be over and the mad rush to Christmas will have begun (I’m guessing it already has for some).   For those that are traveling, I wish you safe travels and that everyone enjoys a safe and happy holiday (or regular day of the week for those not in the US).  Next week, there will be minimal blogging by the Confetti Crew, as I have asked them to spend time in front of their families instead of their computers.  We’ll have a few posts here on the Reverse Confetti blog.  Stay tuned for a fun announcement!

. . . . .

Well, it’s Friday and you know what that means!…

Let’s take a peek back at what some of the most talented gals on the planet (in my humble opinion) have been up to this week.

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.

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on October 09, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!  It’s Thursday and time for a 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:

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 have been focusing on ABC (anything but a card) projects, but today we’re giving you a great idea on how to use stamps and dies in a creative way and how to pair them with pre-made embellishments.

Today on Confetti Camera we have the fabulously talented, JONI ANDAYA

JoniIntroPic

. . . . .

Hello Everyone, Joni here sharing the new ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set. I really love how this was created with so much possibility. To begin my card I cut a white panel just a tad smaller than the A2 card and adhere those triangles from the Confetti Cuts Pretty Panels: Triangles. I also adhere some of the stars from the Confetti Cuts Pretty Panels: Stars all over the panel.

1st pic

 Next, I cut a strip of patterned paper from MME and adhere at the bottom of the card panel. I then stamped the sentiment “birthday wishes” from the new ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp set and die-cut using the Confetti Cut Circles ‘n Scallops and on the card panel. Next, I added some chip board flower from Prima and resin flower from Maya Road. I also added some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the card.

 3rd pic (2)

 Here’s the full view of the card.

 I hope you guys enjoyed this birthday card project. Until next time, thank you so much for stopping by.

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: SPECIAL MINI RELEASE

By admin
on October 07, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the one and only sneak peek day for our special October mini release!

As you know, we release every other month and this month is one of our non-release months; however, we have a few products that we just couldn’t wait to share with you!  You will be seeing a sneak of all of the products today and they will release tonight at midnight EST.  Tomorrow is another day filled with tons of fabulous inspiration from the Confetti Crew.

ReadyForConfetti

Just a note…all of our releases will  happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month…*usually*.  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 and hop post 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 (starting at 9am EST today).  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic pinned to the top of our feed…

MiniReleaseGraphic

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on October 8th 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.

. . . . .

You know the drill…grab that cuppa joe, sit back and enjoy some fabulous inspiration here and from the rest of the Confetti Crew!

I am so excited to share these new products with you!  These are items that are unique to Reverse Confetti and can be used year round.  I am especially excited about them and their potential for AWESOME holiday creations!

Without further adieu, let me introduce you to the 2 new stamp sets and 2 new Confetti Cuts that will be available tonight at midnight EST.

HANGING OUT

What in the world is this, you ask?  This sweet lil’ die creates a door hanger.

HangingOutProductGraphic

I’m not nearly done with all my Halloween projects, but I am switching it over to Fa La La La La Holiday mode today with this door hanger…

MeryXmas

The new HANGING OUT Confetti Cuts die cuts out the top notch that goes over the door knob.

Note, this is created with a 4.25″ width of cardstock, which I find to be the optimal width to have the circle centered.

MerryXmasCard_detail1

The wreath on this card is created with the leafy swag from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set (cut from felt).  I added sequins and rhinestones for the berries and topped it off with a double tied twine.  The sentiment is from our festive sentiment building set, BRING ON THE MERRY.  I’ll be using this door hanger instead of a card for one of my friends this holiday season.  On the heart (cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set), I’ll sign my name and leave it on her front door.

MerryXmasCard_detail2

I’ve created 2 more projects with the new HANGING OUT die that I will be sharing with you tomorrow…when I get back into the Halloween spirit.

. . . . .

The HANGING OUT Confetti Cuts die is just one of the four products that are part of our special October mini release.

The other Confetti Cuts die that we are releasing this month is the ENVIE WRAP…

EnvieWrapProductGraphic

The ENVIE WRAP is a die that will cut out a envelope wrap for you to customize with the two new coordinating stamp sets…

ROUNDABOUT

RoundaboutProductGraphic

and ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS

RoundaboutAdditionsProductGraphic

A little about this ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, ROUNDABOUT and ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS stamp sets…

1. Use the ENVIE WRAP to create unique and interesting envelope, packaging and more!

2. The circle portion of this die is the same size as the large non-scalloped circle in the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS die set. You can stamp the ROUNDABOUT or ROUNDABOUT ADDITIONS directly onto the ENVIE WRAP or stamp them on a circle cut from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts set and pop them up on the ENVIE WRAP (as done in the project below).

3. The gray lines on the product graphic indicate debossing lines.  We added these for extra detail and to coordinate, again, with the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set.

4. The smaller sentiment circles are made to fit on the reverse of the ENVIE WRAP, if you don’t use the return address lines or they also fit in the smaller, non-scalloped circle in the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set.

So, what does it look like on a project?…

CardSet1

These are all dressed up envelopes I created using the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, the ROUNDABOUT stamp set and the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set.  Each of the ENVIE WRAPs are cut from pattern paper, and then I stamped the “thank you” sentiment circle in a coordinating color on a circle cut from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS and popped it up on the ENVIE WRAP. I then cut 4.25″x 5.5″ notecards and stamped them the same for a fun and coordinated gift set…

CardSetAqua

CardSetPink

CardSetOrange

Because this is a gift set, I did not attach the back portion of the ENVIE WRAP, as that would close the envelope.  Here is a pic of it wrapped around, but not attached…

BackOfEnvie

. . . . .

The above “thank you” ENVIE WRAPs are not intended to go through the mail, but you can make them so that they can go postal.  First, make sure that the ENVIE WRAP is secured to your envelope.  It is best to use glue instead of tape runner in this case.  Also, be sure that it is flat.  If it is not totally flat, you can always put it in a clear envelope.  As always, check with your local post office for any additional postage fees (although, I don’t think there should be any), etc.

Here’s one that just needs to be addressed (to and from) and sent…

EnvieWrapPostal

I created the bokeh effect on this ENVIE WRAP using the additional circles in the ROUNDABOUT stamp set and masking the circle portion of this die cut.

The return portion of the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die cut…

EnvieWrapPostal2

Just imagine how darling your Christmas and holiday card will be with this ENVIE WRAP on the envelope!   I used aqua for my bokeh effect, but I think red and green or even just gold would be absolutely FABULOUS…of course, you could just use some festive pattern paper, too!

. . . . .

There is so much more inspiration to see using these stamps and dies that are releasing tonight at midnight EST!

Check out the Confetti Crew & Friends’ posts.

Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win!

Also included in this set are 4 circles so that you can create your own bokeh effect project, or just use them as the polka dots (my favorite!).
