I just love our birthday release!  It’s been a blast to play with and I know that I will find myself reaching for these products over and over again.

My first project that I have to share with you uses the CIRCLE SENTIMENTS, the coordinating SCALLOPED CIRCLE and STAR GARLAND Confetti Cuts dies…

BabyCard

I added the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER across the card to tie in the green of the stamped sentiment.

The STAR GARLAND Confetti Cuts was used as a white on white detail on the circle (cut from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set).  It’s such a subtle detail, but I love what it brings to this card.

My second card today also features the new CIRCLE SENTIMENTS stamp set along with the new limited edition LET’S CELEBRATE Quick Card Panels and STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts dies…

ThanksCircle

This card literally came together in about 5 minutes…gotta love quick and easy, yet still eye catching!

Detail shot…

. . . . .

Can I just say that I absolutely LOVE the new PARTY HATS stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts die set!?

Here, I paired them with the new STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set, FANCY WORD COORDINATES stamps, GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND, LOVE NOTE (heart) and DOCUMENTED (rounded rectangle) Confetti Cuts dies.

PartyHatsCard

I can’t stop creating fringe detail, either!  If you missed the how-to on this, you can see it HERE on day one of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI.

I have one more project to share with you and this one may just be my favorite from this release.  It’s actually the first project that I made for the sneak peeks/hop and I’m pretty pleased this was how I got my creative juices flowing.

*LOVE* this quote from the new GOD IS GOOD stamp set…

Detail shots…

In addition to the new GOD IS GOOD stamp set, I also used the new STITCHED FLAG TRIO, PETALS ‘N POSIES and PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts and the DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP Confetti Cuts dies.

This was originally created to go into a frame, but then I couldn’t find the frame that I was searching for so I went with sticking it on a card front and calling it done.

I have had so much fun playing with this release and I just know that you are going to love creating with it, too!

My first project I have to share with you today is a tassel garland that I created using the new TASSEL Confetti Cuts die…

TassleGarland

Needless to say, not only have I had a little bit of fun creating with this new Confetti Cuts die, but I have also had a blast shopping for tissue paper.  Imagine my jaw dropping when I saw this gorgeous gold “tissue” paper at Michaels just after I picked up the black and white stripey one at Target.  I could not get home fast enough to make this!

Detail shot…

TassleGarlandDetail

. . . . .

This next card that I have to share with you uses the same color palette.  I have to admit that was not planned at all.  Apparently, my subconscious knew what it was doing when it kept me reaching for these colors!

GeometricHello

This card features the new GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die along with the new HELLO Confetti Cuts die.

I cut the GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND from a piece of white cardstock and then adhered it to a white cardstock base.  I then cut it from gold shimmer cardstock and filled in the triangles on the one adhered to the card base.

The HELLO Confetti Cuts die is cut from a couple of pieces of black cardstock and layered for a little extra depth.

GeometricHelloDetail

As evident from many of my release projects, I just can’t keep away from the sequins!  I layered 2 sizes and topped them off with an enamel flatback pearl here as my finishing touch to this card.

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: Leaping Lions and Pineapples Aplenty

By Jen del Muro
on April 05, 2015

Greetings and Happy Easter, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s DAY ONE of our sneak peeks, or as we like to call them…THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  On April 8th we are release 5 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts die sets and a new *limited edition* set of QUICK CARD PANELS!

Are you wondering why in the world we are starting our Countdown to Confetti on Easter Sunday?  Well, we always kick off our sneak peeks on the 5th and since this is not a physical event we chose to go ahead and keep truckin’ along like we always do.

ConfettiCountdown

Just a note…all of our releases will happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month.  We generally release new product every other month.  This is a special release, as April is usually a non-release month for us. We’ll still be hopping on the 8th, whether there is a release or not.  Just remember, “Eight is Great!”

. . . . .

Don’t forget to leave a comment here and on each sneak peek post this week for a chance to win!

In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion (starting at 9am EST today).  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic pinned to the top of our feed…

NextRelease

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on April 7th will be randomly chosen to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Winners for both the blog comments and Facebook comments will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog as well as on Facebook.

. . . . .

Alright, ‘Fetti Fans, you know the drill…grab that cuppa, sit back and enjoy all the Confetti Creativity we have for you today!

. . . . .

Before I dive right into all the projects I have to share with you today, I just wanted to tell you a little bit about this special release.  As you know, April is usually one of our non-release months.  So, why have a release on a non-release month?  At CHA in January I had so much fun seeing all the creativity, trends and spirit of this industry.  There’s something about being surrounded by creative people, I guess!  It really helped my ideas flow and pretty soon my sketchbook was overflowing for ideas for (a few) upcoming releases.  So here we are, on Easter Sunday, kicking off a special Countdown to Confetti for our April release.  A couple of the Confetti Crew Design Team members have hailed this as “the best release ever.”  I hope you think so, too!

. . . . .

First, I’d like to introduce the new *limited edition*

Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANELS

PinaColadaQCP_April15ProductGraphic

QUICK CARD PANELS are limited edition premium heavyweight cardstock panels measuring 3.25″ x 4.5″.  Each package contains 2 of each 8 printed design.  They are designed for A2 card making, but you can easily use them on all of your paper crafting projects!  We will have a new set of QUICK CARD PANELS with each release. Grab them while you can, because once they’re gone, they’re gone!

You’ll see the new limited edition QUICK CARD PANELS used on a variety of projects from the Confetti Crew.  We can’t wait to see how you will use them on your creations!

. . . . .

One of prominent themes that I noticed at CHA this year was party and DIY fun!  Lots of banners and decor ideas swirled in my head and soon these 2 new Confetti Cuts die sets were born…

TASSEL Confetti Cuts

TasselCCProductGraphic

LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts

LayeredBannerDuo

And then, I made this…

Banner1

Detail shot of the TASSEL Confetti Cuts on each end…

Banner1Tassle

The TASSEL Confetti Cuts die is best used with tissue paper.  I took one sheet and folded it several times and then ran the die through my Big Shot. I then folded it over the piece of string the banner is strung on and “fluffed” it up. To secure it over the string, there is a piece of baker’s twine wrapped and tied around the top of the die cut (below where it is folded over string).

The LAYERED BANNER DUO features 2 different shapes of banners: rectangles and triangles.  As the title of the set suggest, you can layer these.  You can also use the smaller shape to cut out the center of the larger coordinating shape, creating a frame, like I did with the white panels here…

Banner1Layers

Also used on this banner are the previously released CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS and LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die sets.  The letters are foam letter stickers.

. . . . .

Have you noticed that pineapples seem to be popping up everywhere these days?  It’s a fresh and fun trend and I couldn’t resist turning them into stamps and Confetti Cuts dies!

Introducing…

PINEAPPLES APLENTY

PineapplesAplentyProductGraphic

and the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

PineapplesAplentyCCProductGraphic

My first card today features the new PINEAPPLES APLENTY stamp and Confetti Cuts die set, as well as the new Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANELS (and another  Confetti Cuts die set that I will introduce in just a moment).

Pineapples1card

The PINEAPPLES APLENTY Confetti Cuts die set features a full pineapple and a separate crown for layering.  Here’s a shot of the layered crown, along with the green flag ended panels cut from the new LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts die set…

Pineapples1card_detail2

The pineapple QUICK CARD PANEL and kraft panels (stamped with WHOLE LOTTA DOTS) are both cut from the new…

SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts

ShakersNFramesCCProductGraphic

I absolutely LOVE this Confetti Cuts die set.  It’s great for layering, like I did here.  And, as it’s name suggests, it’s perfect for making shakers and frames (I’ll get to that a little later in this post).

One last detail shot of this card…

Pineapples1card_detail1

. . . . .

My next card is a lot more clean and simple (CAS) and also features the new PINEAPPLES APLENTY stamp and dies…

CASPineapples1

The textured white layer was created using embossing paste and stencil.  I’m kind of wishing that I would have thought to make my own on this card, too…more on that later in this post.

Again, I layered the crown.  I also added twine and a sequin for a fun little added detail…

CASPineapples1_detail

Here’s one more detail shot of this card.  I just love this sentiment!

CASPineapples1_detail2

. . . . .

I am so stinkin’ excited about this release!  Can you believe I even have  a couple of more introductions for today!?!

First up is a great new addition to create awesome detail your paper crafting projects.

GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts

GeometricBackgroundProductGraphic

This Confetti Cuts die is smaller than A2 size making it perfect for layering.  It’s also great on it’s own or as a stencil, as hinted to above.

To create a stencil from the GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die, simply cut it from acetate and use with embossing paste.  I used translucent embossing paste on a piece of pattern paper with my homemade GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts stencil here…

DIYstencil

You’ll see how I used it on my card below…after a couple of more introductions!

Joining their puppy and birdie friends, I introduce to you…

LEAPING LIONS

LeapingLionsProductGraphic

Does it get any cuter?  I love the lions in this set and you can really make them  your own with the added tummy, face and tail detail stamps that are included.

And the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

LeapingLionsCCProductGraphic

Here’s my card using these cuties along with the paper shown above…

LL_Card

I really wish you could reach in your computer and touch this card!…lots of fun textures happening!

Here’s a shot of all the added details, including the banner and lion (check out the stripes and polka dots he’s “wearing”).

LL_Card_detail

. . . . .

One last card and then I’m sending you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew did with all these new goodies being introduced today!

This card also features the new LEAPING LIONS stamp and Confetti Cuts dies.  I’ve made a shaker using the new SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set.  In addition, I have also used the scalloped rectangle banner, 2 of them actually, from the new LAYERED BANNER DUO as a panel…

LLCard2

For the pink banners above the lions, I cut out the banner from the LEAPING LIONS Confetti Cuts die set, but did not stamp the outline stamp on it.  Instead, I just used the lined detail.  I love the look of this!

LLCard2Detail

Inside the shaker, I used the confetti that comes with in the SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set along with some itsy bitsy sequins.

LLCard2Detail1

. . . . .

That’s all I have for today, but all of the Confetti Crew and ‘Fetti Friends are sharing their creations with you, too.

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans!

Thank you all SO MUCH for the love and comments over the last few days!  We are so excited that the 5 new stamp sets, 7 new Confetti Cuts and the Spring Fling Quick Card Panels are now in the REVERSE CONFETTI STORE!

NowAvailable

. . . . .

Note, there is a full list of hoppers at the bottom of this post in case there are any breaks along the way.

I have a few project to share with you today and then I’m sending you off on your way to see what the Confetti Crew and our ‘Fetti Friends have in store for you.

My first project today is one of my favorites from this release…

MasonJarLid

I started with a mason jar lid and then filled it with green crinkle paper (actually, it was white and a sprayed it green).  I then added the “Hello Spring” egg and a bunny cut from felt from MORE THAN JELLYBEANS and the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.  The small egg was created from the CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts die set and adorned with a flower from the new THE TWEET LIFE Confetti Cuts die set.

The DOUBLE BANNER GARLAND is “strung” between a kabob stick that I cut in half and hot glued to the mason jar lid.

MasonJarLid1

This project came together rather quickly and easily (minus the spraying of the white crinkle paper *wink).  I think these would be darling as part of a place setting for a Spring or Easter brunch!

. . . . .

My next project today features the new SHINE BRIGHT set, SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set and SPRING FLING Quick Card Panels.

YouAreMySunshine

On this card I layered the sun from the SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set on top of the sun on the new SPRING FLING Quick Card Panels.  The words on the sentiment are colored in a gradient with Copic markers.  I can’t wait to slip this card in my daughter’s backpack for her to find.

. . . . .

My final card today features THE BUZZ stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts dies, along with the new DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts.

BeeDay1

The main image panel is the rounded rectangle from the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set.

The bee is colored with Copics and then adhered with dimensional adhesive to the end of the dashed “trail.”

Detail shot of the bee (wings are double cut and layered for added dimension)…

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!

WEEK IN REVERSE

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…

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on January 28, 2015

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!

What day is it?  WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS day! *wink*

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, my focus is on… WATERCOLORS. Watercoloring on cards and other paper crafting project has seen a surge in popularity and I don’t think it’s going away anytime soon!

Yesterday, I showed you a card that I had used a die cut piece of paper that I had watercolored.  The ombre coloring added visual interest and the watercolor paper added just a touch of texture.

Today, I created a background using watercolors…

LoveToLoveYou

Can I tell you something?…I love this card.  It is so far from what I had originally envisioned and it may be one of my favorites that I have ever made.  Gotta love it when that happens!

To create this watercolor background, I colored from bottom to top.  I had to add a little water (and a touch or two of paint) along the way to get the fade that I desired.  It’s not quite what I would consider ombre, but I do like the faded effect that it has.  After it was dry, I saturated my paintbrush in the color that I used to watercolor and I flicked it a couple of times over the paper to get the splatters that you see…and the ones that you don’t.

What do I mean by that?

Well, the negative heart was really an “opportunity to embellish.”  There was a huge splatter there and I just didn’t like how it looked or how my layers looked on that side of the card.  Seeing that I was out of watercolor paper, I had to make something work.  So, I cut it out with the heart and it actually created a great piece of the focal element.

LoveToLoveYou1

From there, I layered the other pieces of the focal element.  The two flag ended pieces are cut from the flag ended banner in TAG ME.  The sentiment is from the January release set, Heart to Heart, and the heart dies are from the coordinating HEART TO HEART Confetti Cuts die set.

As a finishing touch, and to tie in the gold paper, I added gold sequins.

One more detail shot…

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on January 27, 2015

Hello and Happy Tuesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Well, we survived Monday so it’s time for TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

I had a lot of fun creating the card that I am sharing today.  Confetti Crew member and friend, Stacey Schafer, introduced me to the Ranger watercolor paper.  I love using this stuff in conjunction with Reverse Confetti goodies to create fun cards (and such)!

crushin

For this card I created a pink ombre watercolor background and then cut it out with the PRETTY PANELS: BIG CHEVRON from our latest release.  I backed it with the rounded rectangle from CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts (made to go together).

On top of the ombre BIG CHEVRON panel, I layered a BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts die cut (cut from gray stripe paper), an Arrow Confetti Cuts die cut and a sparkly gold heart cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

The patterned paper panels underneath are cut from the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set from our January release (LOVE this die set!) and stamped with the CRUSHIN’ namesake sentiment.  As a finishing touch, I added a bit of bling with some gold sequins randomly placed.  It’s amazing how long it takes to “randomly” place these lil’ things!

This wasn’t the only fun that I had playing with watercolors!  If you follow Reverse Confetti on Instagram, last week you caught a little peek of the base of the card that I’ll be showing tomorrow. (Yea, the one that looked like I was bleeding).  It turned out to be a super cute card (in my humble opinion)!  See you tomorrow with the finished product!

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on January 20, 2015

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

I hope those of you that had a 3-day weekend thoroughly enjoyed it.  I spent the weekend throwing a party for my “baby” that is now FIVE, working on new stamp and Confetti Cuts designs (oh.em.gee…you are going to love what we have designed/planned) and basking in the 70* sunshine that we were blessed with for the past couple of days.  Oh…and I got a little bit of “create time” in, too!  That’s what I call a pretty darn good weekend!

Well, it’s Tuesday so it’s time for TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

Shaker cards are back in a big way!  I remember creating these at my neighbors stamp camps just a *few* years ago and it’s exciting that the trend has come back around, especially with sequins being so hot, too!

GrowWithLove

To create the window, I used the large rounded rectangle panel from the new DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set and one of the PRETTY PANELS that I had on my desk.  I simply put both of them on top of the gray heart paper and ran it through my Big Shot and viola…window!

The acetate and the backing that the sentiment (from LOVE BLOOMS) is on, are also cut from the large rounded rectangle from the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set.

On the top of the frame, I stamped and die cut flowers and leaves from LOVE BLOOMS with the coordinating LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts.  Don’t you love that color?  It’s Papaya Cream pigment ink from ColorBox.  It just looks perfect with these flowers!

GrowWithLove1

As you can see, I used a variety of sizes and colors of sequins.  These soft subtle tones play well off of the flowers and coordinate nicely with the other colors on the card.  While we thought (and thought!) about bringing sequins into the Reverse Confetti product line-up, we ultimately decided to pass.  I get all of my sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Cartwright’s Sequins (they have a TON).

One last shot of all these pretty sequins…

GrowWithLove2

. . . . .

That’s all for now!  I have more stamp and Confetti Cuts designs to work on (squeeeeeel).
