ANNOUNCING…

Hello and Happy Monday, ‘Fetti Fans!

I’m still shaking my head that today is Monday and that tomorrow is the first!

I have some super special (and FUN!) announcements to make today.

First, I would like to introduce the newest member of the Challenge Crew, Jessica Fick

JessicaFickIntro

A little about our newest team member…

I’m so honored to be joining the Reverse Confetti Crew Challenge team!  I love all things paper crafting related: stamps, dies, scrap booking, patterned papers, twines, ribbons, markers, etc… the list could go on and on!  I’m not sure if I have a favorite crafty style but rather enjoy dabbling in everything just a bit to keep the creative juices flowing.  I’ve been privileged to be part of some amazing design teams over the past 5+ years that I’ve been stamping. I love getting to know our online paper crafting community and collecting items for my crafty stash along the way!

 My husband Brad (of 18 years) is my biggest supporter and encourager.  We have two great kids, Isaiah and Ashley, who are a true delight and joy to our family.  I teach K4-1st grade in a small private Christian school during the day and get as much crafty time as I can during my limited free time.

. . . . .

In addition to that super awesome announcement, I also would like to announce the winner of the June Color Challenge.  But first, let me thank everyone that played along.  What wonderful entries there were, as always!

Congrats to…

ColorWinner

Here is her fabulous, fun and colorful card using SO STRIPEY, DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts (will be back in stock soon) and the LET’S CHILL stamp set with the coordinating LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts…

WEEK IN REVERSE

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

What a fun week it has been here in the del Muro house!  The kids had VBS all week, which I have to admit was awesome for me.  I had a few extra hours a day to prep for the upcoming release.  I’m doing a lot of prep ahead of time because we are having a family fun week next week.  It’s time to turn of the computers, phones, etc. and focus on what is most important in everyone’s life: family.

. . . . .

Friday brings the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek back at what the super talented Confetti Crew has been up to!

I love that Laurie combined the anchor from HAPPY HARBOR with the sentiment from HERE WE GO.  The stripes on top (from SO STRIPEY) are great for the theme and the finishing touch of the heart strip (LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts) is perfection!

Sometimes having little color makes for big impact, like shown here on Amy Sheffer’s card using TAG ME Confetti Cuts and the WINNING stamp set…

Heather is the master with PEACOCK PRETTIES!  I love the large feather paired with the sentiment from LOTS TO SAY

Sarah had fun with this month’s color challenge and FREIDA FOX

I love this color combo on Lisa’s card using the WINNING STAMP set paired with the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set…

Here’s another one from Lisa featuring her fun and creative style along with HERE WE GO, HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts and DOIN’ THE WAVE

Reverse Confetti + scrapping + altered art + Amber Hight = WOWZAS

TIME FOR A CARD (OR THREE TAGS) TUESDAY

By admin
on June 17, 2014

Happy Tuesday ‘Fetti Fans!

On Tuesday, I usually have a card for the TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY post, but I’m mixing it up a little and today I have 3 coordinating tags to share with you.

These 3 tags all use this month’s COLOR CHALLENGE that was introduced yesterday.  I hope that you will play along with this fabulous color palette!

Click on image for more details…

June14ColorChallenge

Here’s what I came up with using this fun and fresh color combo…

ColorTags

To create these tags, I started with a white tag cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.  I also cut tags from yellow cardstock and used the bottom inch of those on top of the white tag bases.  I also used the yellow on the enforcer ring at the top of the tag.  The banner strip in the center of the tag is cut from aqua cardstock with the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set and then stamped and embossed with the thick stripes from the SO STRIPEY stamp set.  I love the subtle texture that this embossing brings to these tags.  Each of the tags is stamped with the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from LOTS TO SAY and then I embellished each one differently.

The first one has an apple and leaf on it from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set.  I cut 2 apples and popped one up for added dimension.  (I actually did that on all the tags with their respective die cut embellishments).

ColorTags2

This tag has the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set, along with some red rhinestones…

ColorTags1

I saved my favorite for last.  I just love this tag with the stars from OH MY STARS.  When creating these tags, I had 3 people in mind: a teacher (apple), my daughter (heart with bling) and my son who lives and breathes stars, stripes and superheroes (just like this tag)…

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on April 23, 2014

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

It’s hard to believe that the week is already half over…there is so much more to do (eek)!  I did get some serious studio time in this week and got some cute stuff done for Teacher Appreciation and the upcoming release.  I think you know which one I will be sharing with you today. *wink*

It’s Wednesday and time for WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS? It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between.

Today I’m focusing on easy 3D projects that can be used as gift for teacher appreciation…or any other time!

Using the SWEET TREAT TENT as the base for these projects, I created these…

DSC00456

The first one features a kraft panel stamped with the thick stripes from the SO STRIPEY set in white pigment ink.  I topped that panel off with a layered flower and leaves (PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts) atop a simple white banner (BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts).  This particular giftie can be used for teacher appreciation or for anytime that you just want to say “thanks” (great for favors, too).

DSC00450

Detail shot…I just love those stripes behind this fun flower!

DSC00454

This next one has a little more of a “teacher” feel to it, using the CLASS ACT stamp and Confetti Cuts set.  The base of the focal panel uses the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts.  I love the juxtaposition of the graph paper against those soft scallops!  That small heart border also is part of the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and it was just the finishing touch this project needed.

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on March 18, 2014

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.

. . . . .

HeatherIntroPic

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.

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Wow…Friday already!  This week has flown by! Anyone else ready for the weekend? We are having my lil’ man’s birthday party this weekend.  It’s a Batman theme and most of the RSVPs have been girls.  Looks like I’m going to be figuring out a way to incorporate some pink here and there for this party…good thing that comes naturally to me!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and it’s time for WEEK IN REVERSE…where we take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Val’s own (not so) lil’ (anymore) man had a birthday this week and this is the fabulous card that she created for him.

SO STRIPEY, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS, TAG ME Confetti Cuts

CHA was wonderful and I am so glad that I got to share a lot of the time there with two of the Confetti Crew team members: Stacey Schafer and Amy Kolling.  Stacey made these super darling burlap sacks filled with a personalized stamp for each of us.  How sweet is that!?
