Let’s get hoppin’ onto the projects for today!

If you were on Periscope with me yesterday afternoon, you got a sneak peek at the projects that I have to share with you today.   Here’s a little something to get you in the spirit of all things fall…

My first project today is a card featuring the new Fall Fun QUICK CARD PANELS along with the new TOO CUTE TO SPOOK stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts.  The cat is placed on a black cardstock SCALLOPED CIRCLE Confetti Cuts panel.

These bats are just too cute!  I have them flying around clouds cut from WEATHER IT TOGETHER Confetti Cuts.

This next project features the (previously released) TAGGED TOTE and GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die sets along with the new WALK BY FAITH stamp set and PUMPKIN PATCH stamps and Confetti Cuts die set…

DSC05669

I cut the black panel with the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die and then stamp and embossed the WALK BY FAITH sentiment.  I gave it a bit of a chalkboard look by sketching in the white outline and rubbing white pigment ink on the edges and over the embossing.

The pumpkin is cut from the PUMPKIN PATCH Confetti Cuts die set and then I added the leaves and stamped/cut swirlies and stem.  Inside is a bag of candy pumpkins…yum!

It’s my birthday today (29 again, of course) and I’d like to celebrate by giving YOU a present…

SummerSale20

It’s our biggest sale of the year happening over the next few days…20% off your entire order.  That even includes our already discounted retired sets!  The only exclusion is gift certificates…so, fill up your cart and get this awesome discount!

The Confetti Crew is ready to party, too!  Celebrating with me today is…

The word “ELATED” does not even begin to describe how I felt getting into my craft room this week.  Let’s just say that this week started out with me and Monday getting not agreeing on how things should work (you’ve had one of those days, right?).  Fortunately, the rest of the week has proved to be much better.  And, of course, it’s always better when crafting is involved!

I’ll be sharing all of my creations with you soon.  For today, here’s a cute little treat holder done up in sweet summer style…

TreatHolder

This treat bag is created with the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set and dolled up with the LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts popsicles…

Popsicles

To get the frosty look on these popsicles, I applied Diamond Stickles to the die cut and then added a shimmery glitter (one from my stash with no label – sorry!).  Of course, you use just glue, but I live by the rule that if you can added more sparkle, do it!

Popsicles1

The word “TREATS” is cut from our TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  I layered the pink cardstock with aqua to offset the word for a little added dimension.  I’m kinda loving doing that right now, so consider yourself warned *wink.*

Treats1

For a finishing touch, I added sequins with a little white enamel flatback in the center…

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.

By Jen del Muro

BlogHop

. . . . .

((Fair warning…this is kind of a long post.  Grab that cuppa, sit back and enjoy this post and the entire hop))

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the February Confetti Creative Hop!

It’s the 8th of the month and, as you know, we hop on the 8th of every month.  Since this month is  a non-release month, we “just” have some fabulous Confetti Creativity to share with you.  We know that you love to see Anything But a Card projects and that is what we have for you today!  There’s a Valentine’s theme to all our projects, but these really can be used throughout the year with a tweak of a sentiment or color scheme.

You’re at the first stop along the hop.  In case of a break or if you detour, there is a full list of Confetti Crew members and ‘Fetti Friends hopping today later in this post.

***Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win!  Comments are open until Thursday at noon CST and a winner will be announced on the WEEK IN REVERSE post on Friday.***

. . . . .

If you are newsletter subscriber (link on sidebar) you already know why this is an “extra sweet” hop…

SaleGraphic

I had a Valentine’s sale planned for next weekend, but I figured today is as good a day as any to tell you that WE LOVE YOU with a 3-day sale.  We really do love all our ‘Fetti Fans!  Be sure you share your Reverse Confetti creations with us!

The coupon code is valid February 8, 9 and 10 on new retail orders placed through the Reverse Confetti site.  The coupon code must be entered at the time order is placed.  No refunds or adjustments will be made.  Limited to in stock items.  No rainchecks.

. . . . .

I was recently sketching out a die design for a box when I had a little bit of a “lightbulb moment.”  The shapes that I was working with were are part of our TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  I ran up to my studio to see if what was in my head would work.  It is my pleasure to say, “YES…it worked”  Don’t you love when that happens!?!

Here’s the finished box I created using the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

(tutorial follows)

ABCVal15

Totally cute.  Totally easy.

Here’s the how to:

1. Cut 4 of the rounded top tag from the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set and 1 square measuring 2 9/16″.

ABCVal_pieces

2. Score all 4 of the rounded top tags at 1″ from the straight edge.

AMCVal_1inch

3. Score 2 of the rounded top tags at 1/4″ from the rounded edge.

ABCVal_topscore

4. Layer the 2 rounded top tags that you scored in step #3 and punch 2 holes side by side.

ABCVal_punch

5. Attach 2 panels to the bottom of your square.  The 2 with the holes punched at the top must be opposite each other.

AMCVal_Glue2

6. Attach the other 2 panels to bottom of square.

AMCVal_Glue4

(optional) 7. Cut another 2 9/16″ square, stamp/embellish and add to inside center.

I stamped the “It’s ‘o-fish-al’…” sentiment from SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS and my daughter’s name with LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS.  The heart is cut from red cardstock with the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

ABCVal_InsideStamped

8. Add treats.  I used Swedish Fish to coordinate with the sentiment.

ABCVal_InsideStamped2

9. Overlap 2 panels without holes punched and adhere together. (no pic)

10. Pull hole punched panels together and close off with ribbon.

ABCVal15_1

Top view…

ABCVal15_top

I am so pleased with how this turned out and how quickly it came together.  I know I’ll be making a few more of these and giving them out as little gifties for friends, family, teachers and neighbors.  I can already see pastel colors and jelly beans as  little tweaks to make these more spring/Easter themed.

WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on January 30, 2015

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Friday (and Super Bowl weekend).

Do you have fun plans for the game?  I have to admit, we’re going to be duds and just hang out at home.  I’m more interested in the commercials than the teams playing this year.  I guess that’s just about every year though, but sometimes cheering occurs in between the commercials, too.  My (8 year old) daughter is excited to see Katy Perry perform at half-time.  I’m crossing my fingers for no wardrobe malfunctions, etc!

. . . . .

It’s Friday, so you know what that means…

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on December 09, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s time for a special TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  You may recall, over the summer Confetti Crew member, Heather, made this card…

I just adore this clever card!  So much so that I asked if she would be willing to make a Christmas/wreath card using the same concept to showcase the versatility of this Confetti Cuts die set.  Well she did, and I am so excited that Heather is here sharing it with you today!

. . . . .

HeatherIntroPic

Hi, everyone! Heather P. here with a festive take on a card I created using  Fresh ‘n Fruity Confetti Cuts.  A few months ago, I created the card above using the lemon and orange dies to create a flower, and paired it with one of the lovely sentiments from Fabulous Flamingo.  I love using dies in unexpected ways, it’s a great way to stretch your stash!

 120914

To create my wreath, I used the following Confetti Cuts dies:

Fresh ‘n Fruity

Donut You Know

Circles ‘n Scallops

Branch Out

Tagged Tote

Here’s how:  I started with a piece of light green card stock, and layered together the circle die from the  Donut You Know Confetti Cuts with the largest circle die from the Circles ‘n Scallops Confetti Cuts.  Once run through my machine, this game me a thin, hollow circle to use a guide for my leaf placement.  I die cut 10 green lemons using the Fresh ‘n Fruity Confetti Cuts, and adhered 5 of them (evenly spaced) to the top of the hollow circle.

120914b

I then used my bone folder to score a line down the center of the remaining die cuts, and adhered them to the hollow circle (using pop dots) between the first set of die cuts.  So easy!

120914c

Next, I used the Triple Chevies Confetti Cuts to die cut some vellum, and adhered the strips to a medium gray card base.  I then stamped one of the sentiments from Seasonal Sentiments in Versamark ink onto a piece of aqua card stock before heat embossing with white powder.  I then adhered the sentiment to the card base with pop dots.

Once I figured out how much of the wreath I wanted to display on my card, I used my guillotine paper trimmer to cut off the excess.  I then adhered the wreath to the card front with pop dots.  To decorate the wreath, I used the bare tree from the Branch Out Confetti Cuts on silver glitter paper, and secured them to the petals leaves with Tombo multi-glue.  I die cut a pink bow from the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts, adhered it to the wreath with pop dots, and covered it with Stickles.  To finish up, I embellished with white enamel dots.
