Hello, ‘Fetti Fans!

Thank you all SO MUCH for the love and comments over the last few days!  We are so excited that the 6 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts and brand new QUICK CARD PANELS are now in the REVERSE CONFETTI STORE!

NowAvailable

. . . . .

We will be off the CHA later today, but packaging as many orders as we can before we leave.  Shipping will resume bright and early on Tuesday.  Thank you for your patience.  If you are also going to be at CHA, we hope to see you and give you a big Reverse Confetti hug!

. . . . .

We’re Hoppin’!

To celebrate the new release, the Confetti Crew has put together a fabulous hop with a ton of “Confetti Creativity” using the new stamps, Confetti Cuts dies and QUICK CARD PANELS.

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

. . . . .

We’ve had such a fabulous response to our brand new Quick Card Panels!  They’re perfectly sized for your A2 cards, but can be cut down and used in many other ways.  These are limited edition, so grab them while you can…

I have several new projects to share with you using these new products.  I just couldn’t stop playing!

My first card features 2 large heart images from the playful and sweet new HEART TO HEART stamp set, as well as the HEART TO HEART Confetti Cuts dies, PRETTY PANELS: BIG CHEVRON Confetti Cuts die and DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set (rounded rectangle)…

LoveToLove1

The PRETTY PANELS: BIG CHEVRON Confetti Cuts die is layered with the rounded rectangle from CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts (made to play together).  Detail shot…

This next card uses the new PUPPY LOVE stamp set, PUPPY LOVE Confetti Cuts dies, HAPPY HEART DAY Quick Card Panels and SQUARE TAG Confetti Cuts die (and, previously released, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die)…

PuppyLove2_1

Detail shot (isn’t she just too cute!?!)…

. . . . .

Next up is a project I created using the new sets HERE’S THE STORY, RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW, as well as the new DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set (and, previously released, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set)…

Frame1

This is frame that I picked up from a bin at Michaels.  It’s been sitting in my “do something with this” stash (everyone has one of these, right?).  I took out the glass so that I could make my project more dimensional.  I was able to make it a shadowbox(ish) by putting in the mat (covered with a piece of patterned paper cut to match) and then pressing down the tabs on the back to secure it.  I then added the back of the frame on top of the tabs that were pressed down and secured to frame with tape.  I was fortunate that the back of the frame sat on top on the tabs and was flush with the frame base.

Detail shots…

Frame3

Sewn hearts (cut from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts) and sentiment from HERE’S THE STORY

This card uses the new LOVE BLOOMS stamps and LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts die set.  I love how clean it looks and how the flowers pop off the white background…

One more project and then I am sending you on your way to see all of the other Confetti Crew creations.

This final project features the new SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS stamp set and SQUARE TAG in a way that is perfect for a guy’s Valentine or for anytime you want to give someone a sweet pat on the back…

YouRock1

I “popped” Pop Rocks into a chevron glassine bag and paired it with an embellished SQUARE TAG Confetti Cuts die (flag-ended piece from TAG ME Confetti Cuts and stars from OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts) and attached it with a mini clothespin.  Detail shot…

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW, HERE’S THE STORY & DOCUMENTED

By admin
on January 06, 2015

Greetings ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s DAY TWO of our sneak peeks, a.k.a. THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  We are beyond excited that in just a couple of days 6 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts die sets and the brand spankin’ new (limited edition) QUICK CARD PANELS will be available.

Before I get rollin’ on all the Confetti creativity that we have in store for you today, I want to wish my lil’ man a very HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY!  Wow, has time flown by!

This is one of my favorite pics of Nic running through the sprinklers, age 3.

 

. . . . .

ReadyForConfetti

Just a note…all of our releases will happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month.  We will release new product every other month.  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.  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic…

***JUST A LITTLE FYI: I copied and pasted the November info on Facebook, so it says November but it’s supposed to say January.  Unfortunately, Facebook won’t let me edit.  The one pinned to the top of the page is the right one (just with the wrong date).***

NextRelease

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on January 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.

. . . . .

Today, we are introducing a few more of the 6 new stamp sets and 8 new Confetti Cuts dies releasing on January 8th.  Of course, you’ll see some more of the new QUICK CARD PANELS on design team projects, too!

Introducing…

And, the perfect Confetti Cuts die set to coordinate with these two sets…

DOCUMENTED

DocumentedCCProductGraphic

The stamp stamp sets and Confetti Cuts dies are perfect for pocket scrapping, traditional scrapping, as well as card making and everyday paper crafting projects!

I had so fun with these stamps and dies while creating this set of 6 panels, which can be used either in pocket scrapping or as panels on a card…

AllPocketCards

Detail shots of each panel…

Recognize that ampersand from my project yesterday?  I have a feeling that I’ll be reaching for that die and the flag (stitched down the side) quite a bit, as they’re such a fun lil’ elements!

(heart from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts)

HeresTheStory

I added a border cut with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die on this one for added detail.

HeyBaby

I can see this one getting popped on a card front!  The word “love” is cut from the new PRETTY PANELS: HEART LOVE Confetti Cuts die (see below for product graphic).

Love

The “on this date” circle can easily be punched with a 1″ circle punch.  I used it in a scrappy “collage” here with hearts from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and the smaller scalloped circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts.

OnThisDate

Simple layouts are simply the best!

SimplyTheBest

This geotag symbol with stitched detail is a fun added element!  I layered it here with the smallest circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts.

There are 3 PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts dies that are being released on January 8.  Here’s the 2nd reveal (although you probably have seen all 3 on Confetti Crew members’ blogs)…

LAST DAY OF THE YEAR

By admin
on December 31, 2014

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans and Happy (almost) New Year!

Many take this day to reflect on the year past.  It’s been a good one, indeed.  However, there isn’t too much time to reflect as I have a lot to prep for in the upcoming weeks.  We are so excited for our next release in which we will be release a new product…one that no one else has.  How’s that for a little teaser?

NextRelease

. . . . .

Today, we have a special year end project for WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS.

First, 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, Amy Sheffer, has a fun little way to make confetti and use it on a card.

RC_WiW123114_aks

How about a little confetti to ring in the New Year? Did you know, the little star cut-outs from the Stars Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts die make perfect confetti? Give it a try!

RC_WiW123114_detail1_aks

For today’s festive card, I filled a tiny glassine bag with silver and gold stars. The bag is embellished with some loops of silver thread and a silver star that I cut with the Oh My Stars Confetti Cuts die. The sentiment is a combination of the word “celebrate” from Beautiful Banners and numbers from Lighthearted Letters to make the year 2015.

RC_WiW123114_detail2_aks

With metallics being super trendy right now, the traditional silver, gold, and black New Year color combo is extra fun to design with. The narrow black and gold striped washi tape from K & Co. was perfect to help frame the card’s focal point.

RC_WiW123114_detail3_aks

I stamped an exploding confetti background using an image from Winning and heat embossed it in gold for extra shine. Along the bottom, I added a subtle white-on-white Circle Garland Confetti Cuts die-cut for a little extra interest.

Happy New Year to you and yours! May all your troubles during the coming year be as short as your New Year’s resolutions! (wink!)

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!…

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!

My second project today features the new NORTH POLE WISHES stamps and NORTH POLE WISHES Confetti Cuts on a bag cut with the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  This was such a fun and easy project to make.  I can’t wait to make a few more for Christmas packaging…perfect for gift cards and small sweet treats!

One more project before I send you on your way to see all of the fun projects put together by the Confetti Crew and ‘Fetti Friend!

This last project features a tag cut from the (previously released) TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die set and embellised with a sentiment from the new SEASONAL SENTIMENTS stamp set and a layered tree cut from the new BRANCH OUT Confetti Cuts die set.  As you will recall from yesterday’s post, I was having a lot of fun with gold cardstock and I kept that going on this tag by using it with the trunk/branches of the tree.  It’s the perfect bling-y detail for this tag!

Heart cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on October 22, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Wednesday and time for a fun and kind of technique-y WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS.  I know what you’re thinking…two days in a row with techniques(s).  Parenthesis around the “s” because it’s the same technique, but YES!  I am having quite a bit of fun adding texture to my Reverse Confetti projects.  So much so, that I thought that I would share a little “how to.”

First, 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.  And, as I noted above, I am sharing how to add some fun texture to your Reverse Confetti cards and projects…with embossing paste.

So, here it goes…

First, what you are going to need are a stencil, embossing paste and color/shimmer spray (totally optional, but wait ’til you see how cool it looks with the embossing paste).  Of course, the other elements of your card, too.  I am showing you how to use the stencil and paste on a TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die cut…

Supplies

I cut out one TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die cut and then applied the embossing paste to it using a piece of cardstock (no fancy tools, here).  After I peeled up the stencil and allowed it to dry, this is what it looked like…

TagWithEP

I then sprayed the color spray on top of the embossed tag.  I used the amethyst that is shown above and it made gigantic mess because there was a clog in the sprayer (ugh!).  Fortunately, when I buy things I sometimes buy them in just about every color I can get my hands on.  Then it was off to the aqua color color spray, which I actually like a lot better!

I apologize that I don’t have a stop out picture showing just the die cut, embossing pasted, color sprayed tag, but here it is on my completed card…

(pardon the smudgy marks…that was me trying some new settings on the camera).

TreatsCard2

The main image panel has a sentiment created from the LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS stamp set, along with the “TREATS” die from the TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  The debossed circle is part of the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set.

TreatsCard_detail

Recognize the sketch?  Yep, it’s this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  There are still a few more days to play along for a chance to win.  All the details can be found HERE.

Oct14

And, one more shot of the completed card.  I just love the texture and color pop of the tag behind the main image panel!

Do you love big sentiments on your cards, scrapbook layouts and other paper crafting project?  So do we!

Introducing IN A BIG WAY

InABigWayProductGraphicA

In addition to introducing you to this great new sentiment set, I also want to show you one of the two new PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts that I used on my first couple of cards for this post.

Introducing PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts…

PPTrianglesProductGraphicA

For these cards, I kept it very clean and simple.  I love how the IN A BIG WAY sentiment pops against the colored PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES layer and white base.

TrianglesHelloCard

The PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts die cut is cut from watercolor paper that I colored with pink, orange and yellow.  I then applied a very thin layer Diamond Glaze so that it would have some sheen to it.

As you know, I love dimension.  Here is a shot of how it is all popped up…

I had so much fun creating this card, that I also made it in blue and purple with the “Thanks” sentiment from IN A BIG WAY

Yesterday, I showed you the new TREAT TOTE.  That is just one of the totes that we are releasing this month!

TAGGED TOTE

TaggedToteProductGraphicA

This die set contains SEVEN Confetti Cuts dies!

The base of the tote has a rounded top and we have included a rounded top panel to coordinate with it.  This rounded top panel can be used as a layer on the tote (or any other paper crafting project); however, you can also turn it into a tag.  The small round circle acts as a hole punch and then the larger circle is the reinforcer to be placed over the “punched” hole.  You can easily create handles on the tote using the half oval die.  Also included is a bow die, just as a fun detail.

Here’s my sweet birthday tote using the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set and IN A BIG WAY stamp set…

The scalloped edge panel was cut using the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die (previously released).  The stars are cut from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set (previously released).

As promised yesterday, I have a photo tutorial on how to assemble the two totes that are being released September 8th.  For the tutorial, I have used the TAGGED TOTE, but note that assembly is the same for both totes.

Step 1: Cut 2 of the totes and one of the base of the tote.  I have trimmed the 2 smaller tabs off of one of the totes.

Step1

Step 2: (Optional) You can create handles on your tote by using the half oval die.

Step2

Step3

Step 3: Adhere the two totes together.

Step4

Step 4: Add the bottom of the tote to the small tab in the center.

Step5

Step 5: Assemble into tote, adhering the 2 other side flaps.

Step 6: Fold the bottom in and adhere tabs to it.

Step6

Now your tote is assembled and ready to be embellished.

Step8

Here’s mine all done up with the “Thanks” sentiment from the new IN A BIG WAY stamp set…

Notice something else that might be new?  Yep, there’s the other PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts die AND the brown panel is the new GIVE THANKS LABEL (more on this one tomorrow!).
