A {MOJO FILLED} TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on July 02, 2013

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Tuesday and that means it’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  Each week on Tuesday you’ll find a bit of inspiration here using Reverse Confetti stamps.  Today’s card is Mojo filled!  A few weeks ago, Julee (owner of Verve Stamps) contacted me and asked me if Reverse Confetti would like to be a sponsor for her 300th Mojo Monday sketch that she hosts.  Julee has been a big cheerleader of mine, both when I was part of her design team and also when I told her that I was leaving to start my own company.  I appreciate all that Julee has done for me and I was happy to be a sponsor for this AWESOME celebration!  Congrats, Julee!

Here’s my card using Mojo Monday #300 using PEACOCK PRETTIES

JULY SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

Howdy and Happy Monday!  Before I get to the newest SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY, I just wanted to remind everyone that we are just a week away from our next release.  Stay tuned this week for sneak peeks and a chance to win!

NextReleaseGraphic

It’s July 1st and it’s time for this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  We’re keepin’ it pretty simple again this month and there are a lot of chances for you to make it your own.  Be sure to link up your creations to the link list at the bottom of this post.

RC_SFYTT2

I had so many ideas for this sketch!  At first I was going to switch the circle out with a label shape, but then I came across something that was ombre and decided that was the direction that I wanted to take.  I stuck with the circle, like shown on the sketch, and used my Silhouette to cut a variety of different size hearts.  The size of the hearts, as well as the intensity of the aqua increased as they got lower on the circle…

JulySFYTT1

As you can see, there are a few other creative liberties taken with this sketch, but “the bones” are still there.  I really encourage you to let your creativity help you make this your own!  My liberties were a bit accidental, as the circle/heart panel came out a wee bit bigger than I anticipated.  Short on time, and figuring that everything happens for a reason, I just went with it.

Detail shot of how this card is layered and bling’d (rhinestones on top of sequins) and the sentiment from DREAM IN COLOR from our Key Words Collection

JulySFYTT1_detail

I took some pics along the way so that you can see how I created the ombre heart panel.

First, I cut the circle panel with the hearts from my Silhouette and punched out some circles in the 3 colors I used to create the ombre effect.  The punched circles are attached to the reverse side…

JulySFYTT1_reverse1

TIP: To avoid a gooey glue-y mess, use a little glue around the hearts and then put the circles on top of it.

JulySFYTT1_glue

I’m a glue person, but I understand you may be using a tape runner.  If so, just apply the adhesive to the heart panel instead of the punched circles so that you will avoid any adhesive showing through on the other side.

Here’s the completed reverse side…

JulySFYTT1_reverse2

This panel is attached to a large white cardstock mat with dimensional adhesive and then added to the card, also with dimensional adhesive.

Want more inspiration using this sketch?  The Confetti Crew will have lots of creations for you to see.  Today, check out what Dawn as made…

‘FETTI FINDS

By admin
on July 01, 2013

This is the first of two posts for today! The new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY is posted in the second post.

. . . . .

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!  It’s time to announce this week’s ‘FETTI FINDS!

Each week I am just in awe with your creations using REVERSE CONFETTI stamps.  Thank you all for playing and keep those awesome creations coming!  Please check out the details under the FIND pics, along with the current link list.

LISA HENKE is our first ‘FETTI FIND. 

She created not just one, but two cards with HAPPY HARBOR that just made my jaw drop!  Congrats Lisa on being a ‘FETTI FIND!  Here are her cards…

LISAH1

LISAH2

JUDY ROZEMA is also a ‘FETTI FIND!

Congrats, Judy!  Let’s take a peek at the great HAPPY HARBOR card she created…

JudyR

Lisa and Judy, grab the button from below for your blog (or email me and I will send it to you).

. . . . .

Now for the details, which I am switching up just a tiny bit. 

Why am I switching things up?  Glad you asked!

Last week when I was writing the ‘Fetti Find post which also had the ‘Fetti Fave voting, along with the new link list I got to thinking that it was all a little confusing.  Also, in talking with the design team and others, I found that people are not interested in the voting for the ‘Fetti Fave and that there is a concern that it would turn into a popularity contest.  Taking my own feelings into account, as well as the comments from I others I decided to tweak a few things…for the better!

FettiFind_L

Each Monday we’ll be posting:

  • The ‘FETTI FINDS from the previous week’s link list.
  • A new link list at the bottom of the ‘Fetti Find post.  It will remain open through Saturday of that week.

NOTE: You’ll be able to find the current ‘Fetti Find post quickly by clicking on the button the sidebar.

The last day of the month:

  • The ‘FETTI FAVE will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog.  This will be one of the ‘Fetti Finds from that month and they will be chosen based on their project and creative use of REVERSE CONFETTI stamps.  The ‘FETTI FAVE will receive the ENTIRE NEXT STAMP RELEASE and be invited to play along with the Confetti Crew for sneak peek days and the new release hop.

Just a couple of rules…

  • Anything goes, as long as Reverse Confetti stamps are the only stamps used OR are the main focal point of the project.
  • No limit to the number of projects linked, but they must be posted to your blog or gallery that same week (no linking older projects).

Alright, it’s your turn now!

WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on June 28, 2013

Hello and TGIF ‘Fetti Friends and Fans!  I hope you all are enjoying a fantastic summer vacation.  We are knee deep in new release prep…and swim lessons here!  Needless to say, it’s been a crazy (and fun!) week.  And, it looks like there is more of that to come as the summer rolls on.  To that I say, “bring it!”

. . . . .

It’s the CONFETTI CREW that has been “bringin’ it” all week!  These girls never cease to amaze me with their talent.  Here’s what they came up with this week…

AmyS_ILY

Amy S.  has such a beautiful style!  I always love looking at all the details to her creations, especially this one using I LIKE YOU.

Heather_ILY

Heather’s I LIKE YOU creation is just too cute!  Who wouldn’t love a giftie topped with this tag!?

val

Val’s I LIKE YOU card simply makes me smile!  Her use of colors, fresh design and that lil’ bit of sparkle are just perfect!

Sav_DIC

Savannah’s card using DREAM IN COLOR is so graphic and fun!  I love how fun this card is that she cut her stamps to make her own sentiment…clever!

Amber_PP

Amber’s PEACOCK PRETTIES card is just so pretty!  Great details and a fun take on the sketch she used!

PeacockPrettiesDS107byDawn

WOW, does this pack a punch of bright fun summer-y color!  Dawn’s card uses the same sketch as Amber’s card above and even uses PEACOCK PRETTIES, too.  I love how different designers can come up with different takes on the same sketch (inspiration, etc.).  Way to go, girls!

Laurie

Whale Done, is right!  This card by Laurie using HAPPY HARBOR is cuteness perfected!

AmyK_HH

Another card Whale Done!  This HAPPY HARBOR creation is from Amy K. and just love all the clean cut lines and the rope detail!

. . . . .

Have a great weekend, friends!  I’ll be working on my tan as we build a playset for the littles in the backyard.  Of course, a bit of time will be spent stamping away in the cool air conditioning, too.

And, as always, I send you off with this special note…

Howdy, Friends!

Have you voted for your ‘Fetti Fave yet?  If not, take a peek at yesterday’s post and vote for your fave!

As for today, it’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  I’ve been itchin’ to stamp with PEACOCK PRETTIES again and finally got a chance to ink it up again.  I was inspired by this color palette…

I just adore aqua and yellow together! In combination with black and white to set those colors off, I came up with this card…

Detail shot…

PP_TFACT_detail

I absolutely LOVE using the geometric “feather eye” with VersaMark ink to create tone on tone pattern paper that coordinates with the rest of the stamps in this set.  And, while I didn’t use it here, did you know that the other geometric pattern will “fit” with this one shown? So many design options with this set!

It’s Friday…hip hip hooray!  All week I’ve been off on my days, so this Friday seems to have been a long time coming.  It’s been a good start to summer over here… I spent time with friends, old and new; got a little bit of sunshine by the pool and worked on projects for the JULY 8th REVERSE CONFETTI RELEASE. All in all, I can say it was a good week.  Now, if all those pesky piles of laundry would fold themselves!  I swear I could use a minion…or three!  Can anyone else relate?

Being that it is Friday, time is running out for you to get your entry in to be a ‘Fetti Find!  Weekly Finds will be announced Monday and VOTING FOR THE ‘FETTI FAVE will also begin.  The ‘Fetti Fave will receive the ENTIRE NEXT RELEASE and be invited to join the Confetti Crew for sneak peeks and the new release hop.  Get your Reverse Confetti creation from this week uploaded HERE today!

Time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we shine the spotlight on Confetti Crew creations from this past week…

Heather’s card using HAPPY HARBOR and DREAM IN COLOR used her daughter’s personality as inspiration (love that!)…

Val, too, used HAPPY HARBOR for a completely different look.  I simply adore this card.

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on June 18, 2013

What an amazing week this is already…and it’s only Tuesday!  What’s been happening here at Reverse Confetti…

1. DREAM IN COLOR is back in stock and we are packing and shipping orders.

2. Susan and I met for a working dinner (and oh-so-refreshing ice cold adult beverage) last night and our cup overfloweth with ideas!  We have concepts on paper through the first release of 2014.  Now that’s being productive!

3. Prep work for our next release is well underway! Stay tuned for details about the July 8 release…you won’t want to miss it (promise!).

4. We’re keeping our eye out for the next ‘Fetti Find!  Have you uploaded your card to the weekly link list post on Monday?

. . . . .

Being that it is Tuesday, it’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY.  I’m pretty happy about DREAM IN COLOR being back in stock and just had to get it inky once again.  In the spirit of summer and the upcoming Fourth of July holiday…and the fact that I have Katy Perry’s “Firework” song in my head from watching Madagascar 3 with my kiddos…

DreamInColorFireworks

I stamped the sentiment in white pigment ink on top of black cardstock.  I chose black cardstock because fireworks are seen at night and the colors pop of the panel.  These fireworks were cut from my Silhouette.  Each one is layered with the darker tone on bottom and the lighter tone on top to give it added dimension.  And, since you can’t have fireworks without a little sparkle, I added silver sequins to represent the tail/trail and coordinating rhinestones in the center of the stars.

I’ll leave you with part of the inspiration…
