WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on January 10, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and TGIF!

What a week it has been…chock full of creativity and inspiration from our sneak peeks and new release hop!  It’s been amazing, to say the least!

. . . . .

As a reminder, our offices will be closed on Monday. Normal office hours and shipping will resume on Tuesday.

All orders placed by 5pm CST today will ship before I head out to sunny California for some fun, friends and CHA.

. . . . .

It’s Friday and it’s time for WEEK IN REVERSE.  This WIR post is going to be a re-cap of some of my favorite projects from our Confetti Crew, Challenge Crew and our January/February ‘Fetti Friend.  Let’s get this party started!

Does it get any cuter than this? Daniela created the most A-DOR-ABLE decor piece with FREIDA FOX from our  *new* Quirky Cuties line.  The overlapping embossed hearts in the background are from the new WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS set and she is holding the XOXO banner from the set, CRUSHIN’

Amy Sheffer also created an A-MA-ZING decor piece using the new set, PAPER CRANE

Do you love making little gifties?  We do, too!

Here, Sarah used the new WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS and SWEET THING  sets, along with the TAG ME and (new) LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set to create this super sweet gift set…

Susan created a fun treat using the SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die paired with the new SWEET THING stamp set and (previously released) TAG ME Confetti Cuts banner…

Val’s gift card holder using a combination of the new LOVE NOTE, ARROW and (previously released) TAG ME Confetti Cuts with the sets CRUSHIN’, SWEET THING, WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS and SO STRIPEY is just too cute…

Amy has clever use of the SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die as a lollipop holder. She added a TAG ME Confetti Cuts tag and banner, along with the new ARROW Confetti Cuts.   She also used the new stamp sets WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS and SWEET THING. Super fun and easy kiddo Valentines!

Need a quick and easy addition to a gift sack?  Leigh’s tags using TAG ME and the new SWEET THING stamp set are just perfect!

Need a love note…or two, or three?  Check out Lisa’s sweet notes to her guys using the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set paired with the new CRUSHIN’ stamp set…

Great minds think alike!

Here ‘Fetti Friend, Wida, created a spinner card using SWEET THING and WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS

RC Guest Sweet

Heather used the same concept here with PAPER CRANE

Looks like Heather also had a brain share with Laurie Willison. I love these sweet and simple designs they came up with!

Here’s Heather’s card using WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS and SWEET THING along with the TAG ME Confetti Cuts…

And, here’s Laurie’s darling card using SWEET THING and TAG ME Confetti Cuts, too (love this color palette)…

IMG_0958

Do you love the new ARROW Confetti Cuts die?  We do, too!  Check out how the Confetti Crew played with it and metallic papers.

Stacey’s layers are just awesome, but that ARROW Confetti Cuts die takes center stage!  This card also uses the stamp set CRUSHIN’, as well as the new LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die…

Amber’s on trend gold arrow is the perfect embellishment to this card using the new CRUSHIN’ stamp set…

Savannah’s ARROW is red hot!  She also paired it with the new CRUSHIN’ stamp set…

Want to see how Savannah put this card together start to finish?  Check out her video…

Last, but most certainly not least, I leave you today with Laurie’s oh-so-colorful card, filled with lots of detail using the new WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS and CRUSHIN’ sets, as well as the ARROW Confetti Cuts…

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Please note, next week we will not be blogging and the Reverse Confetti office will be closed December 24-26 so that we may cherish time snuggled on the couch with hot cocoa, kiddos and “Elf.”  I hope that you will find yourself doing much of the same…or at least the like.  Reverse Confetti wishes you and your families the very best of the holidays.  May it all be fun, festive and free from stress!

. . . . .

TGIF and it’s time for WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek at all the fun and creative projects that the Confetti Crew has put together this week!

Lisa is certainly in the holiday spirit!

WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on December 06, 2013

Hello and TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

I’m writing this post on Thursday evening as I listen to a light pitter patter against my windows only to look outside to see that it’s raining…ice.  Yes, ice is just falling out of the sky… and accumulating on the ground (eek!).  Needless to say, there may be a slight shipping delay.  Fortunately, living in North Texas also means that this kind of stuff doesn’t hang around for too long (thank goodness!).  We appreciate your patience and will be processing and shipping orders as fast as Mother Nature allows us.

. . . . .

Being that it is Friday, it’s time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek at what the fantastically talented CONFETTI CREW has been up to this week…

I love how Val incorporated Reverse Confetti stamps into her scrapping projects.  (Our stamps are designed for all your paper crafting projects).

Forever Fall, Whole Lotta Dots, Arrows ‘n Elements, So Stripey

Savannah always has a unique take on the SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  I love her elements that she used where the circles are shown on the sketch…a perfect way to make it her own!

Arrows ‘n Elements, Forever Fall, Celebrate Cake

Stacey is just one of the Confetti Crew designers that has take the Sweet Treat Confetti Cuts die and turned it into a panel on a card…such a fun idea and a great way to get the most use out of your Confetti Cuts dies!

Tinsel ‘n Trim, Bring on the Merry, Sweet Treat Tent Confetti Cuts

Lisa also used the Sweet Treat Tent as a panel on this gorgeous Christmas card.

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!!

Just a reminder…

Next week, we will be taking time out of the office and studio to open our hearts to friends and family and to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.  We will be closed Monday through Friday of next week.  Limited shipping hours will resume on Saturday (11/30) and we will be back in the full swing of things the week following Thanksgiving.

. . . . .

It’s Friday and time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a look back and see all the fun creative goodness that the Confetti Crew has come up with this week.

Savannah is always making me do a double take with her masking and mixing ‘n matching of stamps!

I love how Confetti Crew Member, Laurie Schmidlin, added Kraft to this combo HERE.  It looks great and is the perfect neutral to pair with these colors.  I decided to use kraft on the small flag-ended panel on my card.  I topped it with the pinked circle focal panel with the sentiment and two anchors from HAPPY HARBOR.

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on November 14, 2013

Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans!

We’re glad that you are joining us for this week’s 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 until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member.  To see previous Confetti Camera post, simply click on “Confetti Camera” under the categories link on our sidebar.

. . . . .

This week the Confetti Camera is zooming in on Confetti Crew member SUSAN LILES. Susan is the fearless leader (a.k.a. Design Team Coordinator) for the Confetti Crew.

HER HOW-TO…

For my project today, I’ve made a super easy, “elongated” Sweet Treat Tent and I’m sharing a few pictures to show y’all how easy it was to make.  First, let me start with the “topper” (dk. brown).  I scored and folded a piece of cardstock in half.  Then I lined it up on the SWEET TREAT TENT die right under the die’s score line over the oval, lightly taped it down, and die cut it.  This kept the fold I had originally made intact.

DSC02294

Trim the bottom of the topper to the desired length.

DSC02295

For the bottom part (kraft), I simply made the the sweet treat tent the normal way.  (Cut 2 pieces and adhere at the bottom after folding where scored.)  Then I just glued the “topper” to the outside of the bottom “tent”, covering it right below the oval handles on the kraft piece.

DSC02297

I decorated the front using the TAG ME die stamped in SO STRIPEY, and stamped the little flag banner using TINSEL ‘N TRIM.  Use glue dots to adhere Hershey bars or treat of your choice inside!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on November 13, 2013

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

Just as a quick reminder, the November SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY is still open, but just until tomorrow at noon.  You can find the link to it on the

sidebar to the left.  Happy stamping and good luck!

Our **NEW** COLOR CHALLENGE will be introduced this Saturday, November 16th.

. . . . .

Are you local? Join us this Saturday for a Make ‘n Take at The Little Blue House in Keller.  See you there!

LBHgraphic

. . . . .

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.  Today we’re focusing on QUICK GIFTIES, but 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.

I adore making lil’ gifties…almost as much as I love Halloween! (wink).

With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s nice to have a few quick gifts (and stocking stuffers) on hand for friends, family, neighbors, teachers and hostesses.  Today I am sharing with a you a fast (and funny!) giftie.  And, while mass production is not my favorite thing, I will say that these are perfect for mass production.  I have already made 6, and I am sure that I will make more to have on hand.

MerryTreatBagsInBowl

To create these, I grabbed some mini kraft bags (from Hobby Lobby) that I have been hoarding forever.  I stamped the horizontal stripes from SO STRIPEY across the lower portion of the bag in white pigment ink (I love white pigment ink on kraft!).  I then added the “eat, drink & be” and “for tomorrow we diet” sentiments from the *new* BRING ON THE MERRY set in black pigment ink.  The flag-ended banner is cut from our *new* TAG ME Confetti Cuts and is stamped with “MERRY” (BRING ON THE MERRY).  I popped up the banner with dimensional adhesive, as well as the “dec. 25” circle from TINSEL ‘N TRIM.  To embellish this cute lil’ giftie, I added black and white baker’s twine tied in a bow, a punched star and red sequins.  What’s inside?, you ask.  Twix Santas!…yum!  I think I’ll add a Starbucks gift card to a few of these and give them to my kid’s teachers when Christmas gets a little closer.

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on November 12, 2013

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

I want to thank you all for such a wonderful release!  It was so fun introducing these new products to you.  We have already sold out of the TAG ME Confetti Cuts.  It has been re-ordered and I will post a “back in stock” update just as soon as they are in my hot lil’ hands.

Just as a quick reminder, the November SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY is still open.  You can find the link to it on the sidebar to the left.  Happy stamping and good luck!

Our **NEW** COLOR CHALLENGE will be introduced on Saturday, November 16th.

. . . . .

Well, it’s Tuesday and other than just being the day after Monday, it’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

Last month, I had a hard time putting down the Halloween stamps on my desk.  I have a feeling that I am going to face the same battle with our Christmas stamps.  For my card today, I reached for BRING ON THE MERRY along with SO STRIPEY ( and the previously released, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS) stamped in VersaMark…

TFACT1112

The sentiment is stamped in three different colors, just one of the fun things you can do with the KEY WORD COLLECTION sets, like BRING ON THE MERRY.  While I love the classic red and green color palette, it’s fun to change it up a little and go with a non-traditional scheme.  For this card I used pink, olive, gray, yellow and black.  I think I’ll be putting a few of these colors in my back pocket for a future color challenge.  I originally had an aqua colored panel as part of this card, but I chose to take it away as it didn’t seem to add anything as it was.  There’s still a smidge of aqua there…the rhinestones. Gotta have that lil’ bit of bling!

TFACT1112_detail

These stamps (and dies!) will be hitting a lot of your mailboxes this week.  I’m looking forward to seeing what you make!
