WINTER & HOLIDAY COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP

By Jen del Muro
on December 11, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans…

We’re super excited to be a part of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop both as a participant and a sponsor!

The theme for this one is Winter/Holiday and everyone is invited to play along!  All of the details for the hop, prizes and how you can join in the fun can be found HERE.

I had a lot of fun creating a card for this hop!

DSC_0375

The base of the card is covered with kraft plaid paper (LOVEEE this stuff)!  I stitched around the edges to add a little bit of texture and I think it’s the perfect touch to this card.

DSC_0372

From there I layered 2 large wreaths cut from the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set.  On top of wreath is a cup from the CAFFEINATED CUPS stamp set (cut with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set).  I colored it in ombre red, just like the red cups currently found at Starbucks.

I cut the cup sleeve from kraft paper and ran it through my paper crimper so that it would resemble a real sleeve.  On top of that is the word “joy” cut from the WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts.

For a finishing touch, I added gold hearts cut from the YOU ARE A STAR Confetti Cuts die set and topped them with gold sequins and gold rhinestones.

CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS: MEMORY KEEPING

By Jen del Muro
on November 12, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the third and final day of CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS!

CrazyForChristmas_3MemoryKeeping

Today is all about MEMORY KEEPING.  It’s not just scrapbook pages, but rather much more than that to get you inspired to create with your holiday photos.  You’ll find a full list of the Confetti Crew members posting today toward the end of this post.

. . . . .

As you know, I am a self-described “un-scrapbooker.”  This comes doing one scrapbook, my wedding album, and thinking that I needed much more instant gratification.  In short, that is how I got into card making.  However, I still love to play around with photos of my family and friends and create with them.  So, what’s an “un-scrapbooker” to do when they want to create with photos?

This…

DSC06311

If the first thing that you are noticing is that there are no pictures, you’re right (LOL!).  I’ll be adding pictures from this year to this creation.

Basically, it’s a scrapbook layout with out the actual scrapBOOK.  Instead, I have added it to a frame that I picked up at my local Michaels.  I usually buy a few of these at a time so that I can have them on hand for my “un-scrapbooking.”

The two kraft panels are cut from the WOODGRAIN Confetti Cuts die.  While I will be adding pictures over these, I will leave the edges showing so that it appears as a wood frame…

DSC06316

The word “merry” is cut from the WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts die set and mounted on a piece of white cardstock.  The scalloped polka dot edge is cut from our DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.  I did not completely adhere the border, as I curled the edges up for a little bit of detail and dimension.

DSC06312

Above the (to be) pictures is a wreath cut twice from the large wreath in the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set and is adorned with a heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  To top it all off, I embellished with a button tied off with CAPPUCCINO TWINE and jingle bells.  The wreath is only adhered to the project at the top so that I may easily add pictures…

Of course, there is a lot more to see today!

CONFETTI CAMERA

By Jen del Muro
on October 29, 2015

Hello and Happy Thursday, ‘Fetti Fans!

This week is just blazing right by us, I swear!  I have lots of design work planned out for the next few days in preparation of the upcoming November 8th release. This release is a bit smaller than most of our other releases and I think you’ll find the new goodies perfect additions to your RC collection!  More to come on that very soon!

As for today, it’s time for another edition of CONFETTI CAMERA!

ConfettiCameraRCblog

A little bit about 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 each of our designers will be coming up with a SET of something. You’ll see gift sets, card sets, pocket scrapping sets and much more this time around.

A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will follow the same theme 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.

. . . . .

Up in the spotlight today is the one and only, JEAN MANIS

JeanIntroPic

Hello, Fetti’ Fans! It’s Jean Manis bringing you this week’s Confetti Camera. I’m sharing a set of CAS holiday cards featuring the Layered Snowflake Confetti Cuts set in non-traditional colors.

RCSetemUp

For the card set, I created four variations on the same design.

To begin, I cut snowflakes from both white and silver cardstock (two each per card). For two of the cards, I stamped the sentiment “love & joy” from Winter Word Coordinates and heat-embossed it with silver embossing powder on a white cardstock panel. I used the largest die in the Layered Snowflake Confetti Cuts to cut a window in the panel. I adhered the snowflakes together and inside the window, backed with the colored cardstock using dimensional adhesive.

RCSetemUpver1closeup

The panels were attached to a silver cardstock bases.

RCSetemUpver1

For the other two cards, I die cut a sentiment from Winter Words Confetti Cuts from silver cardstock (twice for dimension) and adhered the sentiment to a colored cardstock panel onto which the snowflakes were attached with dimensional adhesive.

RCiSetemUpver2

RCSetemUpver2closeup

The colored cardstock panels were attached to white cardstock bases.

By simplifying the design and color options, and adding metallic accents with cardstock and heat-embossing, a CAS set of holiday cards are easily mass produced!

I’m not gonna lie, this is a long post…filled with TONS of AWESOME stuff (including a list of Confetti Crew members posting even more inspirational projects today)!   Grab that cuppa, sit back and check out what’s coming to the Reverse Confetti Store on October 8th!

First in today’s line-up is our brand new *limited edition* QUICK CARD PANELS

‘TIS THE SEASON

(this is an updated product image)

QCPGraphic

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!

. . . . .

You asked, we listened.  More words like the FANCY WORDS Confetti Cuts!  (We love this font, too)!

Introducing…

WINTER WORDS

WinterWordsCCGraphic

WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts contains 4 seasonal words.  The size of these is larger than the similar FANCY WORDS Confetti Cuts die set, making it easy to make a big, bold statement on your holiday projects.

Of course, we had to come up with a coordinating stamp set for those fabulous WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts dies!  Introducing…

WINTER WORD COORDINATES

WinterWordCoordinates

Mix and match these sentiments with the WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts for lots and lots of great sayings on your projects!

. . . . .

My first project today uses the new WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts, the WINTER WORDS COORDINATES stamp set along with the new ‘Tis the Season QUICK CARD PANELS and a couple more of our new additions to the shop (squeeeeeal!).

DSC05801

(Note, we have noticed a switch in the Quick Card Panels and this panel and an updated Product Graphic has been added).

For this project, I cut the one of the ‘Tis the Season QUICK CARD PANELS with the (previously released) TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die and then stamped the “bring on the” sentiment from the new WINTER WORDS COORDINATES stamp set to pair with the “merry” from the WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts (triple cut and layered for dimension).

The back side of the project…

DSC05807

Why would I show the back side?  It’s actually a detail shot of one of the new products we have in store! Introducing…

FROSTED PILLOW BOXES

PillowBoxGraphic

These pillow boxes are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS and definitely take your gift card, treat and small giftie giving to the next level!  In addition, they are food safe, BPA free and recyclable!

One more detail shot of this super easy and cute project

DSC05805

Did you notice that sweet snowflake on the tag, too?

Yep, that’s another one of the new products being released on October 8th and it’s designed by our very own Confetti Crew member, Kay Miller!  Introducing…

LAYERED SNOWFLAKE

LayeredSnowflakeGraphic

Take a look at just a few of the options using this incredible Confetti Cuts die…

SnowflakeIdeaSheet

This absolutely fabulous LAYERED SNOWFLAKE Confetti Cuts die set was inspired and designed based on Kay’s own beautiful clay ornaments that she has sold in her Etsy shop.  Here’s a look at one of those incredibly gorgeous ornaments created by Kay…

KMornament

We’ve made it easy to make your own creations like this with paper, felt, cork, etc. with the LAYERED SNOWFLAKE Confetti Cuts die set.  I love that everyone can create both smaller (like the one on the tag above), and larger ornate pieces very simply, like this…

DSC05783

I filled our FROSTED PILLOW BOX with red and green peppermints, added a belly band created from patterned paper and then topped it all with this beautiful felt ornament.

To make it an ornament, I simply added TWINE to the back (circle is cut from the die set)…

DSC05810

DSC05746

Are you wondering why it kind of looks like a sandwich on the bottom?  I added a sheet of cardstock in between the two layers of felt because my original intention/idea for this was for it to be a pin.  When I came up short searching for a pin back in my stash, I went ahead and made it into an ornament.

I added flatback pearls to this for a finishing touch.  I have to say that I LOVE how it turned out!

DSC05788

. . . . .

About that twine that I added to the back…

This is twine from The Twinery and I have had multiple colors in my stash for ages and I keep adding it to everything because it is such AWESOME quality 100% cotton twine.  As I kept reaching for it, I thought “I should just put this stuff in the Reverse Confetti store!”  So I did! I love being able to share great quality paper crafting items right along side all of the Reverse Confetti originals!

On October 8th we will be introducing ALL 16 COLORS (sold in 15 yard bundles)…

SOLID BAKER’S TWINE

Solid_Cappuccino     Solid_Charcoal     Solid_Stone   Solid_Natural

Solid_Blossom   Solid_Strawberry_   Solid_Pink_Sorbet   Solid_Maraschino

. . . . .

My next project uses the twine, as well as one more Confetti Cuts die set that is releasing on October 8th.  Introducing…

HOLLY

HollyCCGraphic

This 5 piece Confetti Cuts die set features two sizes of holly leaves with stitched center line detail, as well as a base for 2 different styles of holly berries.

I keep reaching for this Confetti Cuts die set over and over, so be warned that you will see a lot of it on my holiday projects as it makes the most perfect seasonal embellishment!

Here’s a trio of tags that use the new WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts, WINTER WORD COORDINATES stamps along with the new HOLLY Confetti Cuts and Cappuccino SOLID BAKER’S TWINE

DSC05795

The tags are cut from THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts die set that was released last month.  This has definitely been a best seller and I am glad to see everyone enjoying it!

I cut the holly leaves from (Halloween!) patterned paper and then used white cardstock for the base and then added two of the solid berries and one of the berries that has the highlight cut.  The red sequin was the perfect bit of bling to set it all off!

DSC05772

DSC05768

One last shot of this trio that is going to make the most perfect additions to my gifties this year…

DSC05767

. . . . .

I have one final introduction for you today and I think you’re going to LOVE it!  I know I do and it’s going to be on my crafting desk for a long time to come!  Introducing…

WREATHS

WreathsCC

This set of two wreaths is perfect for the upcoming holiday season, but the wonderful and unique thing about these wreaths is that they are not created from a typical leaf shape, but rather from hearts so you will find yourself reaching for this time and time again throughout the year.  I may just have to make a Halloween project with them, too!

Here, I paired the large wreath from the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set with the WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts die set and the WINTER WORDS COORDINATES stamp set for a lovely trio of cards…

DSC05761

For these cards, I cut two of the word “peace” and layered them on top of each other for a little added dimension.  I also did this with the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die cuts and then slightly pulled up the edges.  Red sequins were a finishing touch that brought it all together…
