Time For a Card Tuesday + Winner Announced

By admin
on February 11, 2014

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

I write this as we just found out that we lost out on our first choice house in Katy, TX.  After a very long crazy house hunting weekend, we finally found “the one.”  After putting our best foot forward, we found out that we weren’t “the one” and we were just one of ELEVEN offers submitted within a 2 day period.  Lucky for the seller, I suppose.  I will now be able to relate to the tears of those people on HGTV…except, they always seem to be the winner in the end.  The good news is that we did find a different house that is a wonderful fit for our family and they accepted our offer.  Houston…here we come (in a few weeks)!

. . . . .

Thank you to everyone that hopped with us over the weekend!  Announcing the winner (randomly taken from Stacey’s blog post)…

It’s Tuesday and TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  I’ve been a little bit of a time crunch lately and I love how quickly and simply this card came together…

YouveGotMail

I started off by using a white base and adding (Crate Paper) pattern paper panel.  From there is was just a little bit of stamping and embellishing.  I overlapped two of the sentiments from the CRUSHIN’ set.  The black scallop panel was created using the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts (large scallop side used).  The banner from TAG ME Confetti Cuts was cut from bright pink cardstock and stamped with hearts from WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS in VersaMark.  I topped it off with an ARROW Confetti Cuts die cut and large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set.  I love the texture that the cork gives this card!  You know me and that I love some bling…black rhinestones with enamel dots were my finishing touch.

Do you have your Valentine’s projects completed?  Better get crackin’!  Cupid’s arrow hits on Friday!

Confetti Camera

By admin
on February 06, 2014

Howdy and Happy Thursday!

Being that it’s Thursday, it’s 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, Val Stangle

Here’s her darling Confetti Camera project using WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS (heart background), CRUSHIN’ (sentiment); SWEET TREAT TENT, LOVE NOTE, ARROW and TAG ME Confetti Cuts…

RC - Feb2014MomslunchUC

For my project today I created shortened Sweet Treat Tent candy treat containers for my mom’s critique group luncheon.  Die cuts don’t always have to be used as is and in this picture tutorial I will show you how I shortened them to create a smaller, more compact, treat holder to hold 4 little Dove chocolate morsels for her luncheon guests.

2.TrimTab

3.Trim4inches

After die cutting, shortening, stamping, die cutting a window and adhering together, it’s time to decorate the front of the treat holder.  I used the same heart from Love Note to die cut another heart from patterned paper which I topped with a gold die cut Arrow.  I adhered both to the left of the die cut heart on the Sweet Treat Tent.  A stamped banner with a Valentine greeting from Crushin’ is adhered above the hearts and arrow before adding the cello wrapped candy inside and tying it all off with a big red grosgrain knotted bow.

These will look so cute with her Valentine themed table, I can’t wait to hear what a hit they were with her artist friends!

This sweet Valentine treat was created by stamping the outlined solid hearts from WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS on the scallop rectangle panel cut from LOVE NOTE.  It’s topped with a M&M filled clear pillow box tied off with red and white baker’s twine.  The sentiment is built from the SWEET THING set from our Key Words Collection and is stamped on the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts and backed with the large heart from theLOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

Here’s Lisa’s project using WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS, CRUSHIN’ and the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts…

cc-spotlight heart card

Hello! I’m so happy to be here today and have the chance to share a quick and easy technique to show off your sentiments and dies. I loved the comments I had on THIS tag.

I did for the latest release. I wanted to show you how this Spotlight Technique can help your words pop in a few easy steps!

 I am still in the LOVE mood, so I have a lovey card today to show off one of my favorite sentiments from the new Crushin’ stamp set. I used the smallest heart from Love Notes Confetti Cuts to add that WOW factor with this Spotlight Technique.

Here’s how.

CC-spotlight heart1

1. Cut out the papers you want to use for your sentiment. You’ll need two different colors or patterns. My base will be the polka dotted print and the grey is for my Heart and will be the Spotlight.

 CC-spotlight heart 2

2. Stamp your sentiment on the base piece of paper first.

CC- spotlight heart 3

3. On your Spotlight shape (really can be anything: circles, paper strips, and even hearts like I did here) stamp your sentiment again in the same colored ink.

 CC-spotlight heart 4

4. Line up your Spotlight piece over top of the base paper. Take great care that you have all your lines matched up. I like to do this first without adhesive to get a feel for exactly where it goes. Once you have it just right…..Add adhesive.

That’s it. I hope you’ll give it a try.

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Wow…Friday already!  This week has flown by! Anyone else ready for the weekend? We are having my lil’ man’s birthday party this weekend.  It’s a Batman theme and most of the RSVPs have been girls.  Looks like I’m going to be figuring out a way to incorporate some pink here and there for this party…good thing that comes naturally to me!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and it’s time for WEEK IN REVERSE…where we take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Val’s own (not so) lil’ (anymore) man had a birthday this week and this is the fabulous card that she created for him.

SO STRIPEY, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS, TAG ME Confetti Cuts

CHA was wonderful and I am so glad that I got to share a lot of the time there with two of the Confetti Crew team members: Stacey Schafer and Amy Kolling.  Stacey made these super darling burlap sacks filled with a personalized stamp for each of us.  How sweet is that!?

SWEET THING, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, ARROW Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts

Lisa really made me say, “Awww” out loud when I saw this over the top cute (and foxy!) card.

FREIDA FOX, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts

Here’s another one of Lisa’s cards with a much more masculine feel to it.

LOTS TO SAY, CELEBRATE CAKE, LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS, INNER ROCK STAR

I mentioned that I love creating for Valentine’s Day, right?  Well, today’s creation is just a little proof that I really am just getting started on all my Valentine goodies.

My card today features a combination of the new set, CRUSHIN’ along with the new LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and ARROW Confetti Cuts.  Of course, a little bling goes a long way, too…

JDCrushin

Detail of the focal panel…

I added a small rounded edge white cardstock panel that I embossed on top of the LOVE NOTE rectangle and then layered my hearts, arrow and sentiment circle.

Note: The two four.teen circle is easily punched out with a 1 1/4″ circle punch.

For a little added detail, I adhered a couple small heart strips from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts dies set to the inside of the card…

It’s no secret that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Remember how much I love creating for Halloween?  Well, Valentine’s Day is a pretty close second!  The cards, the tags, the gifties, the goodies…oh, my! I’m just getting started with my Valentine projects today!

This month, our KEY WORDS COLLECTION sets are a little more on the lovey dovey side and perfect for all those Valentine’s creations, but they can definitely be used year round for those special people in your life, too!  I {heart} versatility!

We are releasing TWO KEY WORD COLLECTION sets this month.  It was just too hard to pick one, so we went with both and I am so glad that we did!  The first of our reveals is for the set, GO TOGETHER

GoTogether300

Like all of our KEY WORD COLLECTION sets, this set features a “key word” that you can mix and match to create a variety of different sentiments,  like those shown in this graphic…

GoTogetherMixSheet

 The office geek in me couldn’t resist reaching for the CTRL C + CTRL V sentiment right off the bat to create this card, which will mostly likely be my hubby’s Valentine’s card…

JDTogether2

I also used the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die (the small side), the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and the banner from the (previously released) TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

LoveNote  ScallopBorder

In addition to the “We Go Together Like…” and the other mix ‘n match sentiments, there is is also a house that has the “HOME is wherever we are TOGETHER” sentiment that I just LOVE!  I’ve used it on a card here, but I have some cute home decor ideas up my sleeve.  The main image panel base is the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts solid scallop rectangle and it is layered with the sentiment house, hearts (also from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set) and new ARROW Confetti Cuts.  Beneath that panel is a black cardstock strip cut from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts (large side used on this card).

JDTogether

The new ARROW Confetti Cuts die…

And you thought that I was just revealing KEY WORD COLLECTION sets today!  Here is the full reveal for WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS, a set of 6 heart backgrounds that are the perfect addition to your cute and lovey projects.  I stamped the solid hearts with outlines on the kraft panel in VersaMark for a subtle pattern to accompany that loving TOGETHER sentiment.  (Detail shot below).

Our second KEY WORDS COLLECTION reveal is for the new set, SWEET THING.  This is such a fun set that I can definitely see myself using over and over throughout the year!

My project using SWEET THING also features both of the Confetti Cuts dies from our last release: TAG ME and SWEET TREAT TENT, as well as the new DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts from this release…that’s a whole lotta dies on one project!

I layer the sentiment and die cuts on top of the SWEET TREAT TENT that is filled with a fun size bag of M&M’s.
