Hey, hey, ‘Fetti Fans…TGIF and happy first day of summer vacation!

Have you played along with this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY?  Come play along for a chance to win!  All details can be found HERE and once more, here’s the sketch…

SFYTT13_Jun14

It’s Friday and time to take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew was up to this week for our WEEK IN REVERSE.

. . . . .

Amber made my jaw drop with these mixed media pages using PETALS ‘N POSIES stamps and PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts, as well as the COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS stamp set…

This is such a beautiful baby card from Sarah using LOTS TO SAY and PETALS ‘N POSIES stamps and PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts, as well as our DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die…

She also completed the inside using BEAUTIFUL BANNERS stamps and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts…

Laurie created this darling card using the HERE WE GO stamp set and coordinating HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts, as well as the BEAUTIFUL BANNERS stamp set and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts…

Let's Celebrate by Laurie Schmidlin

Leigh’s thank you card gift set is so sweet…

The packaging for this gift set was created with the SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die and embellished with TAG ME Confetti Cuts dies stamped with a sentiment from the SWEET THING stamp set from our KEY WORDS COLLECTION.

Each of the cards in this set is so sweet!  You can see the full collection on her blog HERE.  This is just one of the several using LOTS TO SAY and WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS

I’m lovin’ Lisa’s super cute and clever shaker card featuring the WINNING stamp set along with the TAG ME and OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts…

This card from Amy rocked this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY with this fun and fabulous card using BEAUTIFUL BANNERS stamps and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts as well as the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set stamped with the small dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

6.4.14

Kathy’s post for this card is titled “Feels Like Summer” and this bright and colorful card using LET’S CHILL stamps and LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts just epitomizes that…

It’s amazing how two people can get such different (and totally wonderful!) projects from the same set!  Here’s Heather’s card that also uses the LET’S CHILL stamps and LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts along with the DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts…

Last, but not least, is this beauty from Amy using this month’s sketch along with BE A BARISTA

CHARMED, I’M SURE

By admin
on May 21, 2014

Hello and Happy Wednesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s 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 sharing a charm that I created using the CLASS ACT stamp set and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts…Apple5

Here’s the easy peasy how-to on creating this fun charm that makes a great addition to any packaging…

First, cut out:

1 stamped image apple

1 green cardstock leaf

4 thin chipboard apples

2 thin chipboard leaves

Apple1

Next, stack and adhere the apples together and the leaves together.  Using a Crop-o-dile, punch a hole at the top of the apple.

Apple2

Attach the leaf to the apple, add a linen thread bow and then thread a ball chain through.  Sidenote: I just *had to have* this mini ball chain when I found it at a craft show 5+ years ago.  This is the first time I have used it.  Lesson…never doubt that you need something.  It will come in handy one day.  (Yea, that’s what I’ll keep telling myself…LOL!)

Here it is attached to a SWEET TREAT TENT that I cut down to make a little shorter and then added the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER to.  The sentiment is from the CLASS ACT stamp set…

Apple4

It’s also a fun and easy way to dress up a store bought bag.  After the gift has been opened the charm can be attached to a school bag, etc.

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.

April Creative Hop

Hello and Happy Spring, ‘Fetti Fans!

As you know we release on the 8th of every other month, but we still hop on the 8th of every month.  Being that today is the 8th, we have a fun and inspiration filled hop…and, of course, there is a chance to win up for grabs!

So, grab that cuppa joe, sit back and click on through this amazing hop.  Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Comments are open until this Thursday at noon and the winner will be announced on the Week in Reverse post on Friday.  Happy hopping and good luck!

In case of a break in the hop or if you miss a hopper, there is a full list of participants at the end of this post.

. . . . .

The project that I am sharing today is created from our SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die.  If you are not familiar with this die, you cut 2 and adhere them together to create a “tent” that can hold a variety of goodies (perfectly sized for snack size M&M’s and like treats).  For this SWEET TREAT TENT project, I used pattern paper and then I embellished it with the BEBE BUNNY image and sentiment.  As you can see here, I stamped her with her glasses on.  The glasses are a separate stamp and she can be created with or without them…

HoppyBirthday

This SWEET TREAT TENT is “topped” with the banner die from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set, along with some grosgrain ribbon, button and linen thread.

Below BEBE BUNNY is a large scallop border cut from our DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts…

Wednesday in the Works

By admin
on March 12, 2014

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

For those of you following my relocation adventures…the packers come today!  We have 2 days of packing and then another day of loading and then we are on our way and moving in to our new home on Monday.  So, now the answer to the question that I have been getting a lot of lately…Is there downtime for Reverse Confetti?  I wish I could wave a magic wand and say no, but…Yes, there is.  Orders placed by Friday at midnight (EST) will be processed and shipped on Saturday.  While the store will still be open for shopping, shipping on new orders will not resume until Thursday, 3/20, while our family gets moved in and (slightly) settled in our new home.

This week’s WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS is brought to you by Confetti Crew member, Val Stangle.

Please note, this project feature the CARTON CUTIES stamps and Confetti Cuts.  The CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts will be back in stock next week.

ValerieIntroPic

Today’s Wednesday in the Works in an Easter themed home decor frame for our entry table.  CARTON CUTIES takes center stage with die cut bunnies and Easter grass nestled in the die cut egg carton.

val1

Two cartons were die cut and the top trimmed off one; the bottom was popped up with dimensional foam to give the carton a bit of dimension and a place for the easter grass before adding the bunnies.

val2

 The SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts provided the mat for the egg carton.  Tip: The treat tent was die cut twice, once from patterned paper, once from cardstock; both were glued together and trimmed before assembling.

This made for a sturdy base for the focal image that will hold up over the years.  Versafine black ink was quickly embossed with clear ep and heat set to give it a crisp look and to prevent it from fading over time.

Reverse Confetti stamps and die cuts are fun to mix and match, in this project you’ll see I’ve combined several sets and dies to create a fun, coordinated piece that will be fun to set out every year!
