OCTOBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By Jen del Muro
on October 01, 2015

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

Happy October and hooray for fall, although it hardly feels like it is upon us here in North Texas.  October pretty much marks the turn of the seasons…and you never know if you’re going to freeze or sweat on Halloween.

If you’ve been watching the MAKE IT WITH ME MONDAY scopes (via Periscope), you’ve heard me mention that we are having an October release.  We generally release every other month, but we have bumped up our Holiday Release to October 8th this year.  There are new stamps, new Confetti Cuts dies, new Quick Card Panels and MORE!  Sneak peeks start Monday, but you can WIN IT BEFORE YOU CAN BUY IT over on Facebook starting at 8am CST today!

Oct8Release

 . . . . .

Being that it’s the first of the month, it is time to introduce a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

OCT15_SFYTT

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 29th. 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!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By Jen del Muro
on August 12, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Hump Day!

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.  It’s us taking a closer look at how something is created, etc.  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, Confetti Crew member, Sarah Gough,

I’m about to be an Aunt for the first time, any day now in fact. While we wait for an overdue little miss to make an appearance, of course I’ve been shopping! And that means lovely tags on pretty baby bundles. Today I wanted to combine the FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts die with a larger tag base for a combo tag/card that can be filled out and sent on its way just as soon as the little sweetie arrives!

tagcard (1)

I’m using the FOLDED TAG SENTIMENTS stamp set and coordinating FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts along with the LOVE NOTE, TAG ME and TAG ME TOO  Confetti Cuts dies today.

tagcard (3)

I wanted the FOLDED TAG Confetti die to have the same design on both the front and the back, so I cut a second piece and simply trimmed along the score line.

tagcard (4)

This is a great way to cover up using a single sided paper for the tag, and gives a cohesive look. tagcard (2)

I’ve cut the TAG ME TOO Confetti Cuts die from designer paper, and layered with a vellum LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die cut. I love the way these two scalloped pieces look together.

tagcard (5)

To top the layered tags, I cut the long flag ended piece from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set, and curled it in my fingers before adhering it over the layered piece with glue dots. This stops it from creasing when you bend it around your piece.

I love that the FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts die gives you lots of space for a personal message, and I think it looks amazing layered on any of the other larger Reverse Confetti tags!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

Welcome to this week’s edition of 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, Confetti Crew member Sarah Gough has a great video to share with you about how to make a darling gift wrap card.

. . . . .

SarahIntroPic

For Wednesday in the Works today, I turned to that little workhorse of a die set, the Office Edges Confetti Cuts! I’ve used a tab from the Office Edges to create a little pocket, turning your card into the perfect giftwrap for a little piece of jewelry, giftcard or cash. My card features a magnetic closure, but you can also use ribbon and I’ll show you both options.

CONFETTI CAMERA

By Jen del Muro
on February 12, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Thursday!

I can’t believe it’s Thursday already…this week is zooming by at light speed.  My calendar is full and so is my heart!  It’s been a great week and I am looking forward to lots of stuff coming up…personally, and with Reverse Confetti.

One of those “things” coming up for Reverse Confetti is a BRAND NEW WEBSITE!  We will going offline this weekend and, if all goes well, when we come back live it will be shiny and new.  Stay tuned!

. . . . .

Today, it’s time for CONFETTI CAMERA!

ConfettiCameraRCblog

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 cards completed inside and out 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 as Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will follow the same “theme” 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.

The spotlight is on the incredibly sweet and talented, LEIGH PENNER, today…

Today I have a Valentine’s Day card to share.

I decided to make a window card using some of the new January Release products.

IMGP3187

To start, I folded a piece of white cardstock in half.

I die cut some Pink Paislee striped cardstock with the Documented Confetti Cuts journaling card die and some red cardstock using the rectangle die from Class Act Confetti Cuts.

I die cut the largest heart from Heart to Heart Confetti Cuts from the red cardstock diecut and adhered it to the striped die cut. Then, I ran it through my die cutting machine again with the same heart die, to die cut the heart from the striped journaling card.

I adhered these to my white card base and with the card open, I, once again, ran it through with the large heart die. This created the window on my card and made sure the negative spaces from the hearts were all lined up.

I created a banner by trimming a strip of black cardstock to 1″x 6″ and die cutting the ends using just the bottom of the smaller tag from Tag Me Confetti Cuts.

I stamped the sentiment (from Puppy Love) in VersaMark and heat embossed it in white.

I scored the fold lines and adhered it to my card.

IMGP3192

For the inside of my card, I diecut and stamped the boy puppy from Puppy Love (using the coordinating Puppy Love Confetti Cuts) and adhered him to my card, making sure he could be seen from the front through the window.

I paper-pieced his little bow tie and stamped the sentiment (also from Puppy Love).

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By Jen del Muro
on February 10, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Tuesday!

Today is the LAST DAY of our 3 day Valentine’s Sale…

SaleGraphic

. . . . .

We know you love fast shipping (so do we!) and we are working hard to get all your orders out the door just as quickly as we can.

 I am glad that I was able to get some creative time in the studio over the past couple of weeks, as I don’t see any happening this week (but it’s still early in the week, so I can still hope for it).  I have March release goodies to play with and they are calling my name!!  Ok, that was a little bit of a tease…sorry! *wink*

 . . . . .

I’ve been playing around with different ink and mediums.  I had my color mists (mainly Heidi Swapp Color Shine, but there are a few others in there, too) and I got playing around and created this fun flowers…

GrowWithLove215_2

Each of the flowers was created my cutting a coffee filter (folder over a few times) with the flowers from the LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts die set.  I then, sprayed them with the color mists and allowed them to dry.  From there, I layered them and pushed a brad through the center and wrinkled/poofed up the layers to create flowers.  In the end, the centers were adorned with sequins and rhinestones and added to this card…

 GrowWithLove215

The main image panel is cut from the rounded rectangle die in the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set and then stamped with the horizontal stripes from the SO STRIPEY stamp set and a sentiment from the LOVE BLOOMS stamp set.  I layered the flowers with green linen thread and a gold and black flag ended panel cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.  Before added the main image panel to the card base, I flicked (instead of sprayed) gold color mist onto the base of the card.

One more shot…

GrowWithLove215_1

I can’t wait to make more of these.  So easy and fun and they really give this otherwise simple card quite the wow factor!

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

By admin
on February 04, 2015

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Hump Day!

We have a very special WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS to share with you today.

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, Confetti Crew member Amy Sheffer has a super clever way to “sprinkle” some fun into your cards and projects!

. . . . .

AmySIntroPic

Hello ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy here today, with two fun ways to use your DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts sprinkles: in a shaker and to spell out letters!

I started by cutting three scalloped rectangles from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts for the shaker: red card stock for the top layer, acetate for the window layer, and a piece of designer paper for the background layer. On the top layer, I cut out a rectangular opening using the rounded rectangle from CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts. I used foam adhesive to sandwich my shaker layers together and filled the shaker with lots and lots of DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts sprinkles in rainbow colors.

 RC_sprinkles_aks

For the sentiment (from DONUT YOU KNOW), I stamped in black ink on white card stock, then adhered more of those die-cut sprinkles on the sentiment panel, so it looks like the word “sprinkled” was spelled out of sprinkles. I won’t pretend this isn’t a tiny bit tedious, but I like doing stuff like this, and I think the end result is so worth it! What worked for me as adhesive was to squirt out a drop of matte multi-medium, then pick up each sprinkle using a pick-up tool, touch it lightly to the multi-medium, and then place it on the sentiment.

 RC_sprinkles_detail3_aks

I die-cut the sentiment panel first with the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set, so that it would fit within the shaker frame, then cut the bottom notch using TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

 RC_sprinkles_detail2_aks

I kept the background fairly simple to keep the focus on the sentiment shaker: two colors of twine, a white dry embossed background panel, plus some vellum and a tiny strip of designer paper. The embossed stars are coated with a clear Wink of Stella pen for some extra sparkle.

 RC_sprinkles_detail1_aks

Birthday or not, I hope your day is sprinkled with lots of fun!

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).

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