Confetti Camera

Hello and Happy Thursday!

For those of you following along with my relocation updates…nothing terribly exciting of new.  Things went well on the inspection of our current home and we are awaiting the inspection on our to-be home.  I am getting excited and picked up some new things at Home Goods yesterday for our new home.  I’ll be sharing pictures of the new place as soon as we are there and settled.  I’ve become a pro at unpacking and making a house a home as soon as possible.  I can’t stand to have boxes laying around!

With all of the hustle and bustle of the move, you will see some of the Confetti Crew team members taking over posts here over the next several weeks.  I’ll be busy prepping for the move, as well as our March 8th release.

. . . . .

It’s Thursday and time for 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.

. . . . .

Today the spotlight is on Confetti Crew member, AMY KOLLING

Here’s Amy’s fresh and fun Confetti Camera project using WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, CRUSHIN’, SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts and LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts…

2.13.14#3

Hi everyone!  I thought I’d show you a smaller than an A2 size card using the Sweet Treat Tent Confetti Cuts.  I love to get more use out of my dies and I especially like to use them in different ways!  The Sweet Treat Tent Die is such a versatile die…….I’ve used it on card fronts, as treat tents, and here as a card base!

 2.13.14#1

2.13.14#2

I started with a usual fold at the top, A2 size card base.  Placing my folded card just below the cutting line at the top and securing with Washi tape, I ran this through my Big Shot as a normal die.  When it comes out of the die, it makes for a sweet little “skinny” card!  Now, I cut my card the full length which left a tiny score line in my card front.  You can either trim your card down or simply cover this score line like I did here.  Either way works!  I then stamped the card front with Whole Lotta Hearts with pigment ink.  Since GOLD has become popular, I splattered some Color Shine in Gold across my card with a small paintbrush.

 2.13.14#4

Let’s talk about that foil paper……love this stuff.  I took several scrap pieces and placed them on the Sweet Treat Tent Die where I wanted them on my card front once cut and die cut.  I also die cut some Tag Me Dies and stamped a sentiment from Crushin’ in Delicata Gold Ink.  See that tiny gold ring around the tag hole?  Yep….Jen’s included a tag hole dies!  Lastly, I stamped an arrow stamp from Crushin’ randomly over my hearts in Delicata Gold Ink.

Time For a Card Tuesday + Winner Announced

By admin
on February 11, 2014

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

I write this as we just found out that we lost out on our first choice house in Katy, TX.  After a very long crazy house hunting weekend, we finally found “the one.”  After putting our best foot forward, we found out that we weren’t “the one” and we were just one of ELEVEN offers submitted within a 2 day period.  Lucky for the seller, I suppose.  I will now be able to relate to the tears of those people on HGTV…except, they always seem to be the winner in the end.  The good news is that we did find a different house that is a wonderful fit for our family and they accepted our offer.  Houston…here we come (in a few weeks)!

. . . . .

Thank you to everyone that hopped with us over the weekend!  Announcing the winner (randomly taken from Stacey’s blog post)…

Amy, please claim your prize by emailing info@reverseconfetti.com

. . . . .

It’s Tuesday and TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  I’ve been a little bit of a time crunch lately and I love how quickly and simply this card came together…

YouveGotMail

I started off by using a white base and adding (Crate Paper) pattern paper panel.  From there is was just a little bit of stamping and embellishing.  I overlapped two of the sentiments from the CRUSHIN’ set.  The black scallop panel was created using the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts (large scallop side used).  The banner from TAG ME Confetti Cuts was cut from bright pink cardstock and stamped with hearts from WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS in VersaMark.  I topped it off with an ARROW Confetti Cuts die cut and large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set.  I love the texture that the cork gives this card!  You know me and that I love some bling…black rhinestones with enamel dots were my finishing touch.

Do you have your Valentine’s projects completed?  Better get crackin’!  Cupid’s arrow hits on Friday!

February Creative Hop

By admin
on February 08, 2014

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s time for this month’s creative hop where the Confetti Crew and friends bring you a ton of fabulous inspiration using a variety of Reverse Confetti products.

So, get that cuppa joe or tea, get comfy cozy and click on through this super fun blog hop!  Don’t forget to leave a comment on each stop along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store. Comments are open until February 10th at 12pm CST, and the winner will be announced on February 11th post right here on the Reverse Confetti blog.

If there are any breaks along the way, you’ll find the full list of hoppers at the bottom of this post.

. . . . .

The project that I am sharing today is a dressed up version of something a lot of you have made before…a 2-4-6-8 box.

Box1

I created the 2-4-6-8 box and then cut out a large heart (from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set) on one of the vertical score lines so that you can peek into the box filled with yummy Hershey kisses in a cello bag.

Box_heart

I embellished around the negative die cut space with another large heart cut from coordinating paper and popped up on a glue dot along with rhinestones matted with white punched circles.

For the top and bottom of the box, I die cut the rectangle from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set and then cut it in half and overlapped the two pieces to form a square. In the picture below, you can see the slight overlap line. I also wrapped with box with pattern paper cut out with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts.

Box1_base

I wanted to give the top of the box a little bit of pizazz!  I took a wooden ball (from Hobby Lobby) and painted it red and then added ultra fine glitter to it once it dried. I placed on top of a little piece of pink tulle and hot glued it to the top of the box. I then added the “sweet treats” sentiment and hearts (from SWEET THING and GO TOGETHER, respectively) to the banner cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.  The banner is tied onto the glitter ball with some red, white and pink baker’s twine.

Box1_top2

One more shot of the top and banner…

. . . . .

Another crazy week gone by!  For those of you following our housing adventure…we have accepted an offer on our house (YAY!).  We are still on the hunt for one to move into, and we will see how that all pans out in the next few weeks.  We just backed out of one due to some (multiple) issues with the home.  I think it was God’s way of saying that it wasn’t the one for our happy family.  I look forward to being off of real estate web sites this weekend and having my nose buried in my sketch book prepping for upcoming releases!  I need the break and my mojo needs a boost!

. . . . .

It’s Friday and time for WEEK IN REVERSE, where we take a peek back on what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Love is in the air!  I just love the projects that I am seeing from both the Confetti Crew and YOU!

Here’s her darling Confetti Camera project using WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS (heart background), CRUSHIN’ (sentiment); SWEET TREAT TENT, LOVE NOTE, ARROW and TAG ME Confetti Cuts…

RC - Feb2014MomslunchUC

For my project today I created shortened Sweet Treat Tent candy treat containers for my mom’s critique group luncheon.  Die cuts don’t always have to be used as is and in this picture tutorial I will show you how I shortened them to create a smaller, more compact, treat holder to hold 4 little Dove chocolate morsels for her luncheon guests.

 1.2STT

2.TrimTab

3.Trim4inches

After die cutting, shortening, stamping, die cutting a window and adhering together, it’s time to decorate the front of the treat holder.  I used the same heart from Love Note to die cut another heart from patterned paper which I topped with a gold die cut Arrow.  I adhered both to the left of the die cut heart on the Sweet Treat Tent.  A stamped banner with a Valentine greeting from Crushin’ is adhered above the hearts and arrow before adding the cello wrapped candy inside and tying it all off with a big red grosgrain knotted bow.

These will look so cute with her Valentine themed table, I can’t wait to hear what a hit they were with her artist friends!

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

Hello and Happy Tuesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

For those of you following our Dallas to Houston adventure, there are no real updates today.  Our house here is officially on the market and we are still waiting on some information on the house in Houston.  Stay tuned!  I gotta say that all this moving business is cutting into my creative time!  Don’t these people know that I love creating for Valentine’s Day?

. . . . .

It’s Tuesday and time for TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

Today, I am playing around with our current SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY challenge.  If you would like to play along, too, just click on the sketch on the sidebar to the left for all the details and link list.

Here’s this month’s sketch…

SFYTT9_Feb14

I changed it up just a little and made it into a square card.  Feel free to make this sketch your own.  As long as the “bones” are there, it’s all good!

FebSFYTT

This card uses a variety of Reverse Confetti products…  The embossed white panel is embellished with the small scallops from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts.  The main image panel is the large tag from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set and it is stamped with a GO TOGETHER sentiment and topped with the banner, also from TAG ME and the large hearts from LOVE NOTE (back in stock later this week).  I just adore the small heart border (seen here in black and white polkas) from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts!  This tag is super sweet on this card, but would be just as cute attached to a package!
