WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on July 02, 2014

Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans!

rc watercolor smile full

It’s Stacey here with a “gotta wear shades” bright and sunny card using some happy Reverse Confetti goodies for this week’s WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS post!

So, how did I create that BRIGHT watercolored background?!

First, grab 2-3 coordinating colors of ink pads.  I used Ranger Distress Inks Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries.  Stamp the distress pads directly on to a craft mat using very little bold color and more of the more subtle color, then spritz liberally with water.

rc watercolor ink and spray

Next, press (and smear to desired effect) a piece of watercolor paper over your inked and water-spritzed craft mat.

 rc watercolor press

Reveal the beauty and keep pressing into color until desired color and boldness is achieved.

 rc watercolor reveal

To speed up the drying process, you can blot with a paper towel or use a heat tool.

rc watercolor blot

It’s that simple!  Hope you’ll give it a try!

 To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment near the bottom of the main panel, attached a couple of waves and a tag, and detailed with a bow and a few sequin sprinkles!

rc watercolor smile2

Creating your own watercolored background is sure to put a SMILE on your face!

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)

Kathy created this fabulous card using WINNING and OH MY STARS

Leigh cleverly created 2 pattern papers (card base and pattern strip) to create this gorgeous card using PETALS ‘N POSIES and LOTS TO SAY

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on June 19, 2014

It’s Thursday ‘Fetti Fans and it’s time for another fun installment of 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.

3) For this round we are focusing on how Reverse Confetti stamp sets are compatible with each other and each of the Confetti Crew members is picking two of their favorites to pair together on their project.

. . . . .

Today on Confetti Camera, the spotlight is on fun, friendly and super talented AMY KOLLING

AmyKIntroPic

Her Confetti Camera project…

6.19.14

I wanted to focus on the newest Color Challenge (link on sidebar) and the large booms from PETALS ‘N POSIES……my favorite RC set.  I decided to mask off my blooms while stamping.  What made this easy was to cut the coordinating Confetti Cuts with typing paper and use that.  I didn’t have to stamp and cut my mask because the dies are a pretty good match.  They are a bit larger than the stamps but it worked well!!  My sentiment was pieced together using 2 stamps from YOU MAKE ME SMILE……..I like how Jen included the large word “SMILE” and then many supporting words or phrases to compliment making it a breeze to stamp in multiple colors.

6.19.14#2

Now to focus on that scallop border down the left side.  The DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts is a brilliant die…..2 in one!!!  Because this die will cut a full length A2 size scallop, I needed to trim it down for my design but wanted it to look “finished”.  I die cut the scallop border and then placed it back into the die but at a shorter length and ran it through my machine cutting off the extra.  This makes a “finished” look to the other end of the scallop!

Tip:  Remember to use those dies in your stash for masks!

Hello and Happy Thursday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Whew…it’s the last day of school here and we are set for summer vacation!  I have the calendar made, the crafty kids and science projects planned, VBS booked and the school stuff printed (and laminated).  Summer…bring it!

Of course, I have some fun Reverse Confetti stuff planned, too!

Well, it’s Thursday and time for another fabulous installment of 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.

Joni just took my breath away with this watercolored PETALS ‘N POSIES card (also using BEAUTIFUL BANNERS and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts).

Stacey checked in with her “artsy” side for this beautiful watercolored card using COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

Lisa is shooting for the stars with this crazy cool card using WINNING, OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts, DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts and TAG ME Confetti Cuts

Only Leigh would think to make flowers into stars (so clever!).  I love this card using ALL ABOUT YOU and with PETALS ‘N POSIES.

Get ready for your jaw to drop!  This giftie using LABEL ME, LABEL ME Confetti Cuts, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and SO STRIPEY from Sarah is so crazy cute!

Beep! Beep!  Cute card from Kathy cruising by using HERE WE GO along with coordinating HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts.

Shore do love this card from Amy using HAPPY HARBOR and SO STRIPEY.

5.29.14

What a fun card from Lisa using lots of great patterns along with the PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set and PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts.

Susan’s trendy gold stripe notebooks (found at Target in the dollar section!) are perfectly adored with flowers from PETALS ‘N POSIES (and coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts), WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, sentiment from YOU MAKE ME SMILE and additional die cuts using TAG ME Confetti Cuts and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts.

Stay tuned this weekend for a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY coming June 1st!

Made you smile!

Our first set reveal today is the latest addition to our KEY WORDS COLLECTION that features a “key word” that you can mix and match to build a variety of sentiments.

Introducing YOU MAKE ME SMILE, featuring the key word SMILE…

YouMakeMeSmile300

Here’s how you can combine the key word with the various other sentiments…

MixMatch

I had a lot of fun in the studio with this set.  It’s really easy to bring a card together in minutes using this set.  The best part about it is that I know these creations will put a smile on the recipients face!

My first card features not only the new YOU MAKE ME SMILE stamp set, but also the new DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts die that cuts out three different width wavy lines at once.

DoinTheWaveProductGraphic

Smile1

I cut out the wavy lines in each color of the rainbow and then adhered them at an angle on my card base.  The heart is cut out with the large heart die from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

Smile1_detail

. . . . .

This second is just as full of color as the first (I guess that is what makes me SMILE), but with a few more layers…

Smile2

I stamped the key word SMILE in colors that coordinated with the pattern paper that I had chosen and then added the “happy looks good on you” sentiment along the side of the right panel.  The scallop edge was created with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die (love this die!).  As a finishing touch, I added the white enamel dots around the sentiment…

Smile2_detail

. . . . .

As paper crafters, we are always making little gifties and cards for someone special.  From this idea, the new stamp set and coordinating Confetti Cuts were born.

Introducing, LABEL ME…

LabelMe300

LABEL ME Confetti Cuts…

LabelMeConfettiCutsProductGraphic

I have to admit, that these next couple of projects have been my favorite to create for this release.  Of course, give me another hour or two in the studio and that all could change!

First up is a card that isn’t just a regular card.  When I sat down with my notebook to joy down and sketch out ideas I kept thinking about doing a “tab tuck card” (YouTube tutorial video HERE), but I wanted to make it a little different than I had in the past.  What’s a girl to do?  I made a card on top of a card base…

BirthdayCard

In the above photo, you can also see the wavy line cut from the new DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts, as well as the aqua panel stamped in stripes from the SO STRIPEY stamp set.  Yes!…the stripes coordinate with the stripes on the label stamp.  These are the things I think about when creating new sets.  Gotta love being able to coordinate and mix ‘n match your stamps!

The stars on this card were cut from the new OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set (featured yesterday) and topped with sequins and rhinestones.  The flag ended panels that you see are the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.

. . . . .

I was having so much fun with these colors that I decided to keep them around to create these fun lil’ gifties…

Bags

In addition to the new LABEL ME stamps and Confetti Cuts, I used WHOLE LOTTA DOTS on the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set, the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die and the small heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set (adorned with a matching enamel dot)…
