WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on November 21, 2014

Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

TGIF…really!  I thought it was Thursday on Wednesday, so imagine my surprise (and slight disappointment) when I came to realize that I was a day ahead of myself!  I even got on my daughter’s case for not having her weekly homework done for Friday.  Oops!  No wonder she was looking at me like I had two heads.  I’m going to go ahead and say that this is probably not the first or last time that she will think that I am crazy (or that I will make a parenting mistake, for that matter).

It’s hard to believe that just a week from now Thanksgiving will be over and the mad rush to Christmas will have begun (I’m guessing it already has for some).   For those that are traveling, I wish you safe travels and that everyone enjoys a safe and happy holiday (or regular day of the week for those not in the US).  Next week, there will be minimal blogging by the Confetti Crew, as I have asked them to spend time in front of their families instead of their computers.  We’ll have a few posts here on the Reverse Confetti blog.  Stay tuned for a fun announcement!

. . . . .

Well, it’s Friday and you know what that means!…

Let’s take a peek back at what some of the most talented gals on the planet (in my humble opinion) have been up to this week.

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on November 20, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!  It’s time for another installment of CONFETTI CAMERA!

Can I just tell you how much I LOVE this segment!?  It’s so fun to see how each of the Confetti Crew designers takes on the new challenge/theme!

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 on 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.

Today on Confetti Camera we have the super sweet and incredibly talented, HEATHER PULVIRENTI

HeatherIntroPic

Hi ‘Fetti Fans! Heather P. here today with my take on “Inside & Out” cards.  To create my card, I started by first cutting a bunch of wave pieces from white card stock using the Doin’ the Wave Confetti Cuts.  I then fiddled with the arrangement of the waves on the card front, and adhered them to the base once I was happy with their placement.  Next, I covered the two smaller wave pieces with Stickles.

 112014

I then die cut one of each of the snowflakes from the Let It Snow Confetti Cuts from silver glitter card stock, and attached them to the card front with pop dots.  The Tag Me Confetti Cuts was used on a piece of mint CS, and stamped with one of the sentiments from Seasonal Sentiments before heat embossing in white.  To create a banner, I simply trimmed off the top of the tag before attaching it to the card base.  To finish off the front, black enamel dots were added.

112014CUa

To create the inside of the card, I started by first stamping the sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments in light gray ink.  I then cut a few more wave pieces from mint, white and glitter card stock using the Doin’ the Wave Confetti Cuts.  The pattern was arranged, then adhered to the inside of the card.  I then die cut a snowflake from white card stock using the Let It Snow Confetti Cuts, and adhered it to the card base.  To finish up, I covered the snowflake with Stickles, and embellished the center with a black enamel dot.

Well, that wraps it up for me today, but be sure to come back tomorrow for more Reverse Confetti inspiration!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on November 19, 2014

Hello and Happy Wednesday ‘Fetti Fans!

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, Confetti Crew member, Sarah is sharing a great holiday project with you on a new video..

SarahIntroPic

The Confetti Crew have been sharing some amazing tags lately, and I just love a pretty tag on a plainly wrapped parcel at Christmas time – tres chic! I’ve made some burlap based tags with lots of different textures using some of my favorite Confetti Cuts and a bright pop of non traditional color!

Stamps: Seasonal Sentiments

Confetti Cuts: Tag Me, Tag Me Too, Let it Snow, Circle Garland

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on November 18, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans…

Happy Tuesday!  Instead of Time for a CARD Tuesday, I thought that I would have a fun winter/Christmas PROJECT to share with you today.

I love working with wood blocks and making lil’ gifties.  HERE is one that I did a couple of years ago (a pin, because my former blog is no longer in use).

. . . . .

TTSBlock

This project makes a wonderful gift without breaking the bank or taking up too much time.  The length of what you will need to make one might seem long, but chances are that you have a lot (most) of this stuff in your craft stash.

Supplies:

Seasonal Sentiments Stamp Set

Confetti Cuts Dies: Branch Out, Let It Snow, Tag Me (flag ended panel)

Ink

Wood Block (Mine is one of the photo blocks from Michaels.  They come with metal swirlies coming out the top, but are easily removed.  I think I picked them up for a $1 each last year).

Wood Balls

Patterned Paper

Felt (I used 2 different colors of green)

White Cardstock

Brown Cardstock

White Paint

Paint Brush

Stencil

Embossing Paste (I used translucent)

Glitter

Sequins

Rhinestones

Ribbon

Button

Linen Thread or Baker’s Twine

Jingle Bells

Hot Glue

Adhesive (Dimensional and Liquid)

TTSBlock3

The How-To:

1. Paint and sand wood block.

2. Adhere pattern paper to front of blog and apply embossing paste over stencil, sprinkle with glitter and allow to dry.

3. Cut tree pieces from felt and trunk from brown cardstock. Add white cardstock detail covered in glitter to bottom of scalloped tree. Assemble, add sequins & rhinestones and add to block using dimensional adhesive

4. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock piece cut from the flag ended panel from TAG ME Confetti Cuts.  Tuck under tree and adhere to block with dimensional adhesive.

5. Cut snowflakes from LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts dies and adhere to block, adding sequins, as well.

6. Paint wood balls, allow to dry.  Cover in adhesive (such as Mod Podge or Martha Stewart Glitter glue) and roll in glitter.  Allow to dry and adhere to base of wood block using hot glue.

7. For the topper, stack ribbon (in a double bow), snowflake (cut from LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts) and button tied off with linen thread and jingle bells.  Attach to top of block with hot glue.

Friday Greetings ‘Fetti Fans!

I hope you all are staying warm and that the Polar Vortex isn’t chilling you to the bone.  It’s certainly a wee bit cooler than the “sub-tropical” climate than I thought we were moving to here in Houston!  Fortunately, I still have all my fleece pants (and have been proudly wearing them around the house).

I want to say THANK YOU to everyone that ordered new release goodies this week!  I cannot wait to see what y’all do with all these stamps and dies!  Be sure to link up your blog posts to our Facebook page and use #reverseconfetti on Instagram.  If you haven’t already, follow us!

It’s Friday, so you know what that means!…We’re taking a look back at what the Confetti Crew was up to this week in our…

NOVEMBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By admin
on November 01, 2014

Happy November ‘Fetti Friends!

I just have to say that I can’t believe that it’s November already and that means that holiday season is about to be in full gear…yay (and yikes!).  We had a great time last night for Halloween and trick-or-treating!  We just hung around around block until an hour into it my 4 year old said, “I think I have enough candy now.  Let’s go home.”  Yes, really!  And then, to top it off, his sister agreed.  Baffled we took them home, watched a short movie and put them to bed. Of course, when Halloween has fallen on a school night it’s been torture to take them back home.  I hope y’all had a fun and safe celebration.  Here’s a pic from last time (applause for not forgetting the camera)…

TGIF!

Ever have on of those weeks?  Yep, it’s been one of those.  I realized yesterday that I haven’t had a chance to create anything and today, I am setting aside some time to do just that.  I have a feeling my perspective on things might just be a little sunnier after that happens (and during, too).  What have you been up to creatively this week?  Have you had a chance to play along in this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY?  If not, check it out HERE and play along for a fun chance to win.

Being that it is Friday, it is time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to lately.
