WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By Jen del Muro
on October 28, 2015

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

We have a great new WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS for you today!

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, shares a fun a few sweet tags, along with a video!

Homemade baking – it’s the perfect gift, especially when packaged up with a gorgeous tag. The Easy as Pie stamp set and Confetti Cuts make giving your sweet treats, well, easy as pie! I’ve used them to create three tags, one for Christmas, one that would look excellent on a hostess gift and one that is just sweet for sweetness sake. I also discovered a fun little Confetti Cut combo, the Thanks Tag works perfectly with one of the very first Confetti Cuts sets ever released!

FALL COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP

By Jen del Muro
on September 25, 2015

((second post of the day, please scroll down to see the WEEK IN REVERSE post))

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

HopGraphic

Here’s a bit about participating in this hop from the coordinators:

The inlinkz will be posted to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog at 6 am pacific on Friday, September 25. Anyone is welcome to link up on Friday, September 25th at 6 am pacific through Friday, October 2nd @ 11:59 pm pacific. There are no limits to the number of entries, the more the merrier. Please remember to keep the projects with a FALL theme.

You can also see more caffeine crazed creations HERE on the Pinterest board for this hop and HERE in the Flickr group.

. . . . .

I had A LOT of fun creating for this hop!  Fall + Coffee…YES, PLEASE!

DSC05685

The black tag is cut from the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die set and then I just started layering!  The gray polka dot panel is cut from the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die set and is topped off with the tall coffee cup from the new CAFFEINATED CUPS stamp set (cut with coordinating die set).  To give this card a bit of fall flair, I stamped the “Eat, Drink & Be Scary” sentiment from Spooky Sentiments (a Halloween lovers must have) and topped it off with a bat from the SPOOKY CUTIES stamp set.

Detail shots…

DSC05690

The latte art from the CAFFEINATED CUPS stamp set looks good enough to drink!  Did you know that the latte art from this set and the BE A BARISTA stamp set work with BOTH sets?  Also, the mug from the CAFFEINATED CUPS Confetti Cuts die set works with both sets…just another way to get more bang for your buck with Reverse Confetti!

DSC05689

This card uses the latest Reverse Confetti SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  All details on how to play along and win can be found HERE.

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,

. . . . .

SarahIntroPic

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!

The weather is cooling down here in New Zealand, so it’s a good time for some summer escapism with the fab LET’S CHILL stamp set and LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts. I’ll show you how I make an icy popsicle…and let you in on the silly name we have for these summer treats downunder!

I think we are all ready for a little more sunshine in our lives about this time of year!!  I know it hardly feels like spring here and I am turning lighter shades of pale with each passing day.  If I can’t get my sunshine outside, I guess I’ll have to take it in paper and ink form!

Introducing…

SHINE BRIGHT

ShineBrightProductGraphic

Mix and match these words/sentiments for lots of great possibilities!

These stamps coordinate with the SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set that I revealed on Day One…

SunNCloudsCCProductGraphic

I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with this set and mixing and matching the sentiments and pairing them with new Confetti Cuts dies.

hellosunshine

For this card I stamped the sentiment on the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set (previously released) and adhered it to the scalloped rectangle from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set (also previously released).

To embellish, I added the sun from the new SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set with a few yellow enamel dots and used both of the banners from the new DOUBLE BANNER GARLAND Confetti Cuts.

The words on the stamped image are colored in with Copics.

Detail shots…

I told you that I didn’t think this die set would be leaving my desk anytime soon!  *wink*

. . . . .

So far in this release we have birds and bunnies.  It’s time to throw bees into the mix, too! Birds and bunnies and bees…OH MY!

Introducing…

THE BUZZ

TheBuzzProductGraphic

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

TheBuzzCC_ProductGraphic

My first project today using THE BUZZ stamp and Confetti Cuts die is this cute lil’ tag…

BuzzTag

To create this, I cut out the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die and then stamped the “You Are So Bee-You-Tiful” sentiment on it.

I then cut out another TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts tag from gray and white polka dot paper and used the bottom portion to layer.  From there, I added a yellow strip cut with the new DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.

DoubleEdgeWonkyScallopBorderCCProductGraphic

The bees are stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black ink and then colored with Copics and then popped up on dimensional adhesive.  The small bee is adhered to the tag at the end of his “trail” (one of 2 different ones included in the set).

BuzzTag1

. . . . .

My second project using this fun stamp and Confetti Cuts die set is this card that also features the new SPRING FLING QUICK CARD PANELS

SweetCard

SpringFlingQCPProductGraphic

For this sweet bee, I layered the wings for added dimension.  It’s hard to tell in the photo (thank you Mother Nature for terrible lighting), but I also did add a little bit of glitter to the wings, as well…

SweetCard2

The beehive is also colored with Copics and adhered with dimensional adhesive.

WEEK IN REVERSE

By Jen del Muro
on February 13, 2015

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Friday!

As I noted yesterday, we are working on a brand new website and I am thrilled to launch it later this weekend.  Here’s how everything should go (note that times are approximate)…

8:30 pm tonight : We take the current site down.  All traffic into our site will reach a landing page saying that we are under construction.

We test, retest, work out any bugs and make it sparkly (kinda, sorta) over the weekend.

By 10:00 pm Sunday we go back up with the new site in place.  We will send out a newsletter either Sunday night or Monday morning announcing that the new site is live.

This new site is on the same platform and all customer information should remain intact, so there won’t be a need to re-register, etc.

We will be accepting orders until the site is taken offline.  Orders made before 11am today will go out today.  Monday is a mail holiday and shipping will resume on Tuesday.

If there are any questions, we may be reached at info@reverseconfetti.com

. . . . .

Thank you to all that hopped with us this week!  The winner of the $15 gift certificate is…

(from Amber’s blog)

Lieve, please email info@reverseconfetti.com to claim your prize.

. . . . .

Now, let’s take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week!  Many of the Confetti Crew posts were part of our Valentine ABC Hop that was mentioned above.  In case you missed it, click HERE to go to the start of the hop.
