OCTOBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By Jen del Muro
on October 01, 2015

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

Happy October and hooray for fall, although it hardly feels like it is upon us here in North Texas.  October pretty much marks the turn of the seasons…and you never know if you’re going to freeze or sweat on Halloween.

If you’ve been watching the MAKE IT WITH ME MONDAY scopes (via Periscope), you’ve heard me mention that we are having an October release.  We generally release every other month, but we have bumped up our Holiday Release to October 8th this year.  There are new stamps, new Confetti Cuts dies, new Quick Card Panels and MORE!  Sneak peeks start Monday, but you can WIN IT BEFORE YOU CAN BUY IT over on Facebook starting at 8am CST today!

Being that it’s the first of the month, it is time to introduce a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

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!)

NOVEMBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By admin
on November 01, 2014

Happy November ‘Fetti Friends!

I just have to say that I can’t believe that it’s November already and that means that holiday season is about to be in full gear…yay (and yikes!).  We had a great time last night for Halloween and trick-or-treating!  We just hung around around block until an hour into it my 4 year old said, “I think I have enough candy now.  Let’s go home.”  Yes, really!  And then, to top it off, his sister agreed.  Baffled we took them home, watched a short movie and put them to bed. Of course, when Halloween has fallen on a school night it’s been torture to take them back home.  I hope y’all had a fun and safe celebration.  Here’s a pic from last time (applause for not forgetting the camera)…

Well, I said it already…it’s November.  That means it’s time for a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on October 30, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Merry Halloween Eve…or as I’ve seen it called Elsaween.  Just how many Elsa costumes will we be seeing tomorrow?  I’m glad that my kids did not go the Frozen  route (I’m Frozened out!) and will be dressing up as a pirate and a vampire.  Yes, my 4 year old is going to be a vampire…”with bloooood,” as he says.  Needless to say, it should be interesting.  Let’s see if I can remember to take pictures!

. . . . .

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 an ANYTHING BUT A CARD project 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 on Confetti Camera we have the very kindhearted and over the top talented, AMY SHEFFER

AmySIntroPic

. . . . .

Hi everyone, Amy here today for this week’s Confetti Camera installment. Today, I’ve created a gift for a very dear friend who is undergoing chemo treatments for breast cancer. She is nearing the end of her eighteen treatments, and I thought I’d give her a way to count down the very last of these treatments and get to the finish line.

 The outer packaging is a matchbook-style wrap, with the bound side held together with a binder clip.

chemocountdown1

For the front label, I used the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, topped with a circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts. The sentiment is made up of the word “count” from COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, plus the word “chemo” and “down,” which were done by combining individual letters in the same font from a whole bunch of different sets. I added in some die-cuts for extra design elements: DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts, PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts , and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts.

chemocountdown3

 On the inside are three tiny paper gift sacks, one for each chemo treatment that’s left. The outsides of the each bag are numbered, and the inside has a motivational tag (plus a Ghirardelli chocolate square).

chemocountdown2

The #3 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: DIAGONAL STRIPE Confetti Cuts , ARROW Confetti Cuts and LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts. The tag inside has a motivational sentiment from ALL ABOUT YOU.

 The #2 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: CHEVRON Confetti Cuts and TAG ME Confetti Cuts. The sentiment on the inside tag was cut on my Silhouette.

 The #1 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts , OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts, and TAG ME Confetti Cuts. The tag inside uses the PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts again, as well as a sentiment from WINNING and a star accent from OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts.

One last view, from the side:

chemocountdown4

This same idea could easily be repurposed for any type of countdown, or simply used as a mini-album for photos, a collection of favorite quotes, funny kid sayings, even a collection of gift cards for a teacher or coach.

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on September 30, 2014

Hello and Happy Tuesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY, but instead of a card I have something extra special to share with you…

HalloweenBanner

I created this banner for the CKC event that we attended earlier this month in San Marcos, TX.  Just about everyone that came into the booth asked about the dies, etc.  Originally, I didn’t think that  I was going to blog it, but since it was such a hit I thought I would share it with you.

Do you recognize the banner?

Yes!  It’s the pennant from the WINNING Confetti Cuts die set…

I flipped it so that the point was down and cut it from a variety of pattern papers in my stash.

Then, I layered it with the smaller circle from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set and topped it with a stamped (LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS) pink circle, also from the WINNING Confetti Cuts die set.  To embellish, I cut stars from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set and topped them with green sequins and orange enamel dots.

Detail shot of a single embellished pennant…

HalloweenBanner_detail

I love when I get to “stretch” the use of my stamp and dies.  This is just one way to get more from the WINNING Confetti Cuts die set.  Don’t be too surprised if you see another banner or two using these Confetti Cuts and stamps for the upcoming holidays!

Here’s my take on this regal combo…

08colorcard

This scrappy card is perfect for sending a sweet hello to a friend.

The gold cardstock is cut with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER die.  I love the glimmer of the gold, which I mirrored with the sequins.

The main panel consists of the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set, CHEVRON PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts and the heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shot…

The “oh hello” sentiment from the ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS set is stamped with white pigment ink on the navy panel.

WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on June 20, 2014

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

What a fun week it has been here in the del Muro house!  The kids had VBS all week, which I have to admit was awesome for me.  I had a few extra hours a day to prep for the upcoming release.  I’m doing a lot of prep ahead of time because we are having a family fun week next week.  It’s time to turn of the computers, phones, etc. and focus on what is most important in everyone’s life: family.

ClosedGraphic

. . . . .

Friday brings the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek back at what the super talented Confetti Crew has been up to!

I love that Laurie combined the anchor from HAPPY HARBOR with the sentiment from HERE WE GO.  The stripes on top (from SO STRIPEY) are great for the theme and the finishing touch of the heart strip (LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts) is perfection!

Sometimes having little color makes for big impact, like shown here on Amy Sheffer’s card using TAG ME Confetti Cuts and the WINNING stamp set…

Heather is the master with PEACOCK PRETTIES!  I love the large feather paired with the sentiment from LOTS TO SAY

Sarah had fun with this month’s color challenge and FREIDA FOX

I love this color combo on Lisa’s card using the WINNING STAMP set paired with the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set…

Here’s another one from Lisa featuring her fun and creative style along with HERE WE GO, HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts and DOIN’ THE WAVE

Reverse Confetti + scrapping + altered art + Amber Hight = WOWZAS

(CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts, GO TOGETHER, YOU MAKE ME SMILE, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS)
