WEEK IN REVERSE

on February 06, 2015

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!

Time to take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week!

FEBRUARY SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By admin
on February 01, 2015

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Sunday!

Yes, I’m blogging on a Sunday.  That means that something fun and exciting is happening over here!  It’s time for a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!

Here’s this month’s sketch…

SFYTT21_Feb15

. . . . .

Here are all the details you need to know…

Before I get to all the wonderful inspiration that the Confetti Crew came up with using this sketch, let’s go over the details…

There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.

The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 27th. The SFYTT button is  posted on the sidebar.  Click on it to be taken to the current SFYTT post and link list.

Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!

You may enter as many times as you wish.

There will be a winner each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 28th of this month.

. . . . .

Here’s my take on the sketch using DONUT YOU KNOW and DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts on the focal panel…

SFYTT1

In addition to the DONUT YOU KNOW stamps and Confetti Cuts dies, I also used the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die along the left side of the red chevron panel and the flag ended banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set on the two flag ended banners hanging from the top.

Detail shot of the card, along with the icing and sprinkles…

SFYTT12

To get the glazed looked on the icing, I used Ranger Enamel Accents and then added glass glitter and sprinkles (cut from the DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts dies).

SFYTT13

Of course, the Confetti Crew has some wonderful inspiration using this sketch, too!

Week In Reverse

By admin
on March 28, 2014

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

I hope everyone has fun weekend plans ahead.  It’s more of the same here for the del Muro household…these boxes just will not end!  Of course, a little exploring time and R&R are most definitely in the works, as well as some time to GET INKY!  I had a chance to create yesterday and it felt so good to play again!  I’ll be sharing what I made next week.

Right now it’s time to take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has done this week in the WEEK IN REVERSE.

Lisa did a great job of combining sets to create this fun, sports themed card.

ALL ABOUT YOU, PETALS ‘N POSIES, BEAUTIFUL BANNERS

Val had fun mixing and matching a variety of Confetti Cuts die sets to create this darling journal for a lil’ friend of hers.

TAG ME, PETALS ‘N POSIES, OFFICE EDGES, LOVE NOTE, WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

Val also created this card that I am swooning over!

PETALS ‘N POSIES, PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, ALL ABOUT YOU, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

Leigh’s card is so soft and elegant.  I love the multi-colored feather.

PAPER CRANE, PEACOCK PRETTIES

With Teacher Appreciate just around the corner, Amber is the perfect muse with this card!

CLASS ACT, CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts

Sarah’s card is a showstopper!

PEACOCK PRETTIES, PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts

Heather never ceases to amaze me with her use of PEACOCK PRETTIES (and embossing powder)!

PEACOCK PRETTIES, LOTS TO SAY

Stacey’s card is fun and full of color!  I love the combo of stamps here!

By admin
on March 05, 2014

WooHooo!  Sneak peeks for the March release have now officially begun!  We like to call this time the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  For the next four days we will be sharing a bevy of spectacular projects featuring our new release of SIX new stamp sets and FIVE new Confetti Cuts!  All of the products go live in the Reverse Confetti store at midnight (EST) on March 8th. 

NewReleaseSchedule

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!”

Before I get started today, I just want to remind you to leave a comment here and on each sneak peek post this week for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate.

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…

FacebookGraphicMarch14

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST on March7th 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.

. . . . .

As I always say when we kick off our Countdown to Confetti, this is going to be a long post (tutorial included!)… grab that cuppa joe (or tea), sit back, relax and enjoy!

I’d love to tell that spring has sprung, but it really seems like the winter of “polar vortexes,” “thunder sleet” and “cobblestone ice” is holding on for a bit longer.  Here’s to wishing that those terms are all put to rest soon and that spring will actually, well, spring!  You’ll notice that a few of our March sets are spring themed, and I think of spring, I can’t help but think of bunnies.  Cute, fluffy and sweet…they were the perfect inspiration to our new QUIRKY CUTIES line.

Let me introduce to you, BEBE BUNNY who is spring at heart, but can easily be used for occasions throughout the year…

BeBeProductGraphicSheet250

. . . . .

My first project for today features darling BeBe Bunny on an everyday “hello” card, perfect for sending to a special someone just because.

BeBeCard

As you can see, she is facing to the left.  This is so she can be paired with her friend, FREIDA FOX, if you wanted to put the two together!  (Yes, those are the little things I think about!).

I’m really happy to be breaking out my Copics again for the Quirky Cuties line!  To get the gray color on her “fur,” I used my blender along with T1, T3 and T5.  Here’s a detail shot of the some of the coloring, as well as the tab die from our new Confetti Cuts set: OFFICE EDGES

BeBeCard_detail

Full reveal of the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts:

OfficeEdgesConfettiCuts

This set features 5 dies that are the perfect element additions to your paper crafting creations.  You may be thinking, “What is that long skinny oval for?”  When you pair it with the large tab, you are able to make an envelope closure like shown on this card…

CardClosure

It’s SUPER simple to create this closure.  Here’s how I did it on this card…

I started with a panel of cardstock measuring 3.25″ x 10″.

Tutorial1

Tutorial2

Gate fold your card and then…

Tutorial4

Tutorial5

Open up your card before running it through your die-cutting system.

Tutorial6

Remove die and washi tape and this is the cut you will have.

Tutorial7

Tutorial8

Now, you can gate fold it once more and close.

Tutorial9

I embellished the top/left side of this card using pattern paper and a piece of white cardstock cut with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.

Tutorial10

Again, the completed outside of the card with my daughter’s name stamped with letters from LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS onto the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts set and paired with the heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set…

CardClosure

And, the inside featuring stamps from our newest KEY WORDS COLLECTION set: ALL ABOUT YOU stamped onto the scalloped rectangle LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts. For a little extra detail, before I adhered the panel to the card base, I stamped the large dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS in white pigment ink on the base.

CardClosure_Open

(See those flames?  You’ll be seeing those again later this week. *wink*)

Introducing the set, ALL ABOUT YOU

YOUProductGraphicSheet250

As with all of our KEY WORDS COLLECTION sets, you can use the “key word” YOU to build sentiments like shown below.  This particular set also features the “second half” of a sentiment that you can use like shown or on the inside of a card.

There is so much more inspiration to see using all these stamps and dies that are releasing on Saturday, March 8th!

Set of 14 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

Confetti Camera

By admin
on February 13, 2014

Hello and Happy Thursday!

For those of you following along with my relocation updates…nothing terribly exciting of new.  Things went well on the inspection of our current home and we are awaiting the inspection on our to-be home.  I am getting excited and picked up some new things at Home Goods yesterday for our new home.  I’ll be sharing pictures of the new place as soon as we are there and settled.  I’ve become a pro at unpacking and making a house a home as soon as possible.  I can’t stand to have boxes laying around!

With all of the hustle and bustle of the move, you will see some of the Confetti Crew team members taking over posts here over the next several weeks.  I’ll be busy prepping for the move, as well as our March 8th release.

. . . . .

It’s Thursday and time for CONFETTI CAMERA!

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 a fun tip or technique 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 answer the same set of questions/show a tip 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 the spotlight is on Confetti Crew member, AMY KOLLING

AmyKIntroPic

Here’s Amy’s fresh and fun Confetti Camera project using WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, CRUSHIN’, SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts and LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts…

2.13.14#3

Hi everyone!  I thought I’d show you a smaller than an A2 size card using the Sweet Treat Tent Confetti Cuts.  I love to get more use out of my dies and I especially like to use them in different ways!  The Sweet Treat Tent Die is such a versatile die…….I’ve used it on card fronts, as treat tents, and here as a card base!

 2.13.14#1

2.13.14#2

I started with a usual fold at the top, A2 size card base.  Placing my folded card just below the cutting line at the top and securing with Washi tape, I ran this through my Big Shot as a normal die.  When it comes out of the die, it makes for a sweet little “skinny” card!  Now, I cut my card the full length which left a tiny score line in my card front.  You can either trim your card down or simply cover this score line like I did here.  Either way works!  I then stamped the card front with Whole Lotta Hearts with pigment ink.  Since GOLD has become popular, I splattered some Color Shine in Gold across my card with a small paintbrush.

 2.13.14#4

Let’s talk about that foil paper……love this stuff.  I took several scrap pieces and placed them on the Sweet Treat Tent Die where I wanted them on my card front once cut and die cut.  I also die cut some Tag Me Dies and stamped a sentiment from Crushin’ in Delicata Gold Ink.  See that tiny gold ring around the tag hole?  Yep….Jen’s included a tag hole dies!  Lastly, I stamped an arrow stamp from Crushin’ randomly over my hearts in Delicata Gold Ink.
