It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY here on the Reverse Confetti blog.  HAPPY HARBOR has been on my desk and I can’t seem to put it away!  Here, I used it in combination with a (Silhouette) die cut tag, where I used the negative of an off-set anchor…

HappyHarborTFCT

I stamped the whale image multiple times to create my own patterned paper and then added the sentiment as an embellishment to the tag (along with some sequins for bling!) …

HappyHarborTFCT_detail

I love this color combination, especially for the nautical theme!  It gives it a little bit of a hip and girly feel to it.

‘FETTI FINDS AND VOTING FOR ‘FETTI FAVE

By admin
on June 03, 2013

Happy Monday, dear friends!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  While most the weekend was spent having fun with the kiddos, I did manage to work on several designs/ideas and I look forward to sharing them with you here.

It’s Monday and that means it’s time to announce the ‘FETTI FAVES from last week’s entrants.

Be sure to keep scrolling down and VOTE for your favorite card from May.  Voting will be open through Wednesday and the ‘FETTI FAVE will be announced on Thursday.   The person that is voted the ‘FETTI FAVE will receive the ENTIRE JULY RELEASE and is invited to play along with the Confetti Crew for the sneak peeks and hop. This will normally take place on the last Monday of the month.  I lost track of my days last week!…this mama is not ready for preschool to be done for the year!

This week’s ‘FETTI FINDS are…

CASH_FF

Melissa Cash made a statement with her fun, bright color palette and simple sparkle!  The sentiment from DREAM IN COLOR makes such a statement against this background.

THOMAS_FF

Nancy Thomas’ happy and fun card has so many great elements!  I love that she used so many of the stamps from the HAPPY HARBOR set.

Congrats to Melissa and Nancy for being this week’s ‘FETTI FINDS!  Ladies, you may grab the badge below or email me for the code to add to your sidebar.

JUNE 2013 SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By admin
on June 01, 2013

It’s baaaaack!

SFYTT_postgraphic

Yep, SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY (SFYTT) is back…but a little different, in a good way, of course!  Same awesome sketches, just a slightly different format.

For starters, it’s here on the Reverse Confetti blog, not at my “old” blog (iheart2stamp.com).

Second, Reverse Confetti is hosting and sponsoring the sketch.  And, because we’re the sponsor we get to give away REVERSE CONFETTI stamps!!  More on that in a minute, along with all the other details you will want to know.

For now, let’s get this party started!  Here’s the very first SFYTT here at Reverse Confetti…

RC_SFYTT1

Here’s my sample using stamps from both HAPPY HARBOR and I LIKE YOU

SFYTT1-1

I created my own pattern paper focal panel by repeatedly stamping the anchor from HAPPY HARBOR and the hearts from I LIKE YOU.  Detail shots…

So, here are the details…

  • There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.
  • The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 14th. The sketch will be posted in the sidebar and you will be able to click on it to get to that month’s SFYTT post with the link list during this time.
  • We originally stated that you must play with Reverse Confetti stamps to win; however, we are allowing “anything goes” until the end of the year. Note, that we will be adding this requirement in January.
  • You may enter as many times as you wish.
  • There will be a winner each month and that person will receive ALL OF THE STAMP SETS for the next release and be invited to share their creations during our sneak peeks and hop!  The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 15th of each month.

Are you ready?

WEEK IN REVERSE

By admin
on May 31, 2013

TGIF blogland and ‘Fetti Fans!  It’s time once again for the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has done this week.

Before I get to all of their craftiness, I want to remind you that there is still a little bit of time to enter our ‘Fetti Finds for a chance to win the ENTIRE NEXT RELEASE!  You can find all the details HERE on Monday’s post.  Keep in mind that we’ll be posting a new ‘Fetti Find post each week (on Monday) in case you miss this one.

Amber, Amy and Val got inky with I LIKE YOU, but in totally different ways.  Amber played with lots of layers, colors and sentiments from the set…

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on May 28, 2013

Hello ‘Fetti Fans! For those of you that had a long weekend, I hope you enjoyed the extra time that could be spent and cherished  with family and friends.  Here in the del Muro household, we definitely had a great relaxing weekend.  Part of the weekend was spent prepping for my daughter’s upcoming birthday party.  I always say that I am not a theme person, but the last few years I have really gotten into preparing my kid’s parties.  I don’t do anything too crazy, but I definitely try to put a personal touch on it.  This year’s “theme” is a splash party.  I’ve been working a little here and there all weekend with the HAPPY HARBOR set making cupcake toppers and then some. I can’t wait to show you the finished product!  Sorry for the tease, but it’s just not quite ready yet!

What is ready is my card for TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY using PEACOCK PRETTIES

BlkPP

I have really been wanting to do a few things with this set and stamping the feathers in just plain ol’ black is one of them.  I’ve been drawn to stamping them in color because peacocks are so beautiful and colorful, but stamping them in black and making the rest of the card in color makes them stand out a little more.  The feather in this set is substantial enough to be a large focal image. But, by stamping and cutting two, I basically made them into embellishments for the feather eye and sentiment panel.

Detail shot…

BlkPP_detail

I had to reach for the gold sequins to play off the rest of the color palette.  The aqua sequins are adorned with charcoal sequins to give a little extra, yet understated bling.

LOOKING FORWARD

By admin
on May 23, 2013

Happy Thursday, ‘Fetti Fans!

I can imagine that you are all busy lil’ bees this time of year.  We’re wrapping up school with the kiddos, prepping for summer and looking forward to a few things here at REVERSE CONFETTI.  One of those things is SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY.  If you were a follower of my personal blog, iheart2stamp.com (update on that below), you are familiar with SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY or SFYTT.

Well, sadly iheart2stamp.com is currently in blogosphere heaven.  I’m not a technical person, but I have been told that it was not updated properly (oops!) and no longer supported the version of php that I was using.  Translation: it went kaput.  I had, for the most part, stopped blogging there; however, we (<–meaning hubby) is trying to restore the older posts so that they can be accessed.  SFYTT was a big part of my blogging adventures there and I look forward to continuing with those fun sketches here on the Reverse Confetti blog.

You may have noticed the badge on the sidebar, but if not I am here to tell you today that SFYTT will be back on JUNE 1st!

SFYTT2

Some details about the Reverse Confetti version of SFYTT:

There will be a new sketch each month.  The first one will be posted on June 1st.

The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 14th. The sketch will be posted in the sidebar and you will be able to click on it to get to that month’s SFYTT post with the link list.

Reverse Confetti stamps must take center stage in your creation to be eligible to be the SFYTT winner.

We will be adding this requirement after the first of the year.  For now, anything goes!

You may enter as many times as you wish.

There will be a winner each month and that person will receive ALL OF THE STAMP SETS for the next release and be invited to share their creations during our sneak peeks and hop!  The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 15th of each month.

Be ready to play along June 1st!

TIME FOR A CARD (OR TWO!) TUESDAY

on May 21, 2013

Greetings ‘Fetti Friends and Fans!

I’d first like to take a moment to say that our hearts go out to all of those affected by the tornadoes in Texas last week and in Oklahoma yesterday. I grabbed this sign on Facebook yesterday and wanted to share it here…

OK

. . . . .

It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY, where I get to share a bit of inspiration using REVERSE CONFETTI stamps.  This week, I’m getting inky with the HAPPY HARBOR set.  This first card has lots of layers and elements…

Watermarked sand dollar image…

Compass rose and sentiment combo…

This second card follows the same color scheme, but is a little more tame when it comes to layers and elements…

It’s hard to play favorites, but I think that the large anchor and small anchor border might be my favorite images in this set…of course, that will probably change next time I play with this set!
