My first project today features the November SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY and THREE of the new products available today: BRING ON THE MERRY, TINSEL ‘N TRIM and the TAG ME Confetti Cuts…

My second card features our new unique and fun coffee and tea themed set, BE A BARISTA from illustrator Angelica Suarez…

Latte

On the right side of the base of this card, I stamped the coffee cup image repeatedly in VersaMark ink.  It’s a subtle touch that compliments/mimics the cups on the pattern paper (Little Yellow Bicycle).  The coffee cup is paper pieced and lightly shaded (on inside) with C1 and C3 Copics.  This cup is super easy to paper piece and also lots of fun to color!

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: LOTS TO SAY

By admin
on November 07, 2013

Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans!

Welcome to the third and final day of our sneak peeks, also known as THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  Tonight at midnight EST we will releasing 5 new stamp sets and our first 2 Confetti Cuts!

Before I get too far into this post, I want to say THANK YOU for all the love and support that you have given Reverse Confetti over the this first six months.  It’s truly been an amazing adventure so far and I look forward to growing more with YOU!

. . . . .

It’s release week!  Here’s what’s going on…

NewReleaseSchedule

There are literally just hours left to leave your comments on sneak posts and on our Facebook page (direct link to comment thread HERE).  The winners from the blog comments and Facebook comments will be posted here on the Reverse Confetti blog and on Facebook today at 5pm EST.  Good Luck!

. . . . .

As you can imagine, I’m always on the lookout for trends and unique concepts to bring to Reverse Confetti as stamps and dies; however, there is something to be said for “the basics.”  That’s one of the reasons that we started with tag dies.  Those are one of the things that I feel is a staple item that every paper crafter should have in their stash.  Another thing on that list that I feel is a must-have, or staple item, is a good BIG sentiment set and that is just what we are revealing and previewing today.

Introducing LOTS TO SAY…

LTS_ProductGraphicSheet300

. . . . .

There are two members of the Confetti Crew that recently welcomed lil’ ones into their families and these are the cards that I made for them using the soon to be released sets,  LOTS TO SAY and SO STRIPEY.

For Val, the first time grandma…

LittleBabyBigLoveCAS

I used most of the same elements and colors to create this one for new mama (again!), Laurie.  Can you see the TAG ME Confetti Cuts panels that I snuck in there?  They are the white panels behind the navy circle…

LittleBabyBigLove2

The onsie was cut out with my Silhouette and then stamped in VersaMark with the even straight lines from SO STRIPEY.

SS_ProductGraphicSheet300

. . . . .

I’m constantly reaching for a notecard to say something to someone.  Sometimes it’s just to let my daughter’s teacher know that she will be going home with a friends or to tell my super sweet neighbor thanks for bringing me a bowl of soup (yes, I have a neighbor that does that!!).  For these notes, and many others I created some notecards for the “just a note to say…” sentiment.  This is also a quick and easy gift that people will love and use.  This set is actually headed over to that sweet neighbor of mine, so I packaged them with envelopes in a clear box (purchased online) with a TAG ME Confetti Cuts die…

NotecardBox_cards

NotecardBox

NotecardBox_tag

The word “notecards” was stamped with (previously released) LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS in alternating ink colors to coordinate with the pattern paper.

There is so much more inspiration to see using all these stamps and dies that are releasing TONIGHT!

Do you know what time it is? I do…

Today we are revealing and previewing the new set, BE A BARISTA, for coffee and tea lover alike…

ProductGraphicSheet300

Before I get to my samples using this fun and original set, I’d like to introduce you to Angelica Suarez.  She’s one of our new illustrators and I love how she was able to take my concept, sketches and list of ideas to create the artwork for BE A BARISTA.

AngIntroPic

I’m Angelica, an illustrator, graphic designer, mom and full time thinker-upper who can’t sit still for more than a few minutes. I live in Green Bay, Wisconsin with my husband Jorge, our two girls Lucy and Marlee, and three furry kiddos that keep us busy. It’s my joy to use all different kinds of media to tell stories, and explore new ways to communicate the gifts of life and love.

. . . . .

My first project for today is a clean and simple card that features one of the latte art images from the BE A BARISTA set and also the new TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set that was introduced yesterday…

Coffee&Friends

TagMe300

It’s been a long while since I last broke out my Copics to color an image!  Coloring this mug really reminded me of how much I love to color and use colored images on my projects.  I can say with some certainty, that you will be seeing some more line art coming to Reverse Confetti (wink).

Coffee&Friends1

. . . . .

If you’re not a colorist, don’t worry, this set looks great colored or not (you’ll see that on some of the Confetti Crew and Friends projects).  Of course, you can always paper piece it, a technique I actually LOVE to do!

Tea

This project features the new BE A BARISTA  and SO STRIPEY stamp sets, along with the SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts.

To get the look of tea, I stamped the solid liquid image and then hung the tea bag from the side of the mug.

TIP: Stamp the liquid and then stamp the mug for easier alignment.  Why is it easier this way?  It’s easier to do it this way because you can see through the negative portion of the mug better than you can see through ink on the solid/latte art images.

Here’s a side view of the project.  I took 3 tea bags and packaged them in a cello bag that I placed on the inside of the treat tent.  As a reminder from yesterday, you CUT TWO pieces of paper using the SWEET TREAT TENT and adhere them together to create the “tent.”

Tea_side

For the top portion of this SWEET TREAT TENT project, I cut a portion of a doily and adhered it to the yellow cardstock.  I love the soft feminine look of this against the solid stamped stripes (from SO STRIPEY)…

This is a long post. Grab that cuppa joe, sit back, relax and enjoy all the new Reverse Confetti inspiration!

It’s no secret, the holidays are just around the corner.  There are cards, gifties and decorations to be made along with family meals and cookies for friends and neighbors.  It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

. . . . .

Today we are introducing not only one or two, but THREE new stamp sets and our TWO new CONFETTI CUTS (our very own line of exclusive wafer-thin dies) that are just perfect for all of your holiday creations (and more!).

Some of my most favorite things to make, not only during the holidays, but throughout the year are tags.  So, when it came time to design our very first CONFETTI CUTS, I knew that we needed a standout die set that could be used on lots and lots of projects and gifties.  With this in mind, TAG ME, a set of 5 dies was born…

TagMe300

This die set features large and small flag-ended dies.  The larger tag has a debossing detail line and each have a coordinating circle to go around the hole on the top portion of the die.  The flag-ended banner is the perfect place to stamp many of your Reverse Confetti sentiments, including these fun and festive ones from the new set, TINSEL ‘N TRIM which is designed for all your holiday tags and scrapbooking pages, including pocket scrapping (i.e. Project Life) and daily albums (i.e. December Daily)…

. . . . .

In addition to making tags, I also love making little gifties that can be given to friends, family, teachers and hostesses.

For those gifties and more, I created the SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die…

SweetTreatTent300

Are you twisting your neck and wondering why this doesn’t quite look like a tent?  It’s because with this die, you CUT TWO, fold on the bottom scored (debossed) lines and adhere together like so…

TreatTentM&Ms_inside

This die also has a tab at the top.  You have a couple of options for using this tab when you have two of these cut…

1. Fold each tab inward and adhere tabs together.

2. Cut ONE tab off and adhere other tab to the inside top of opposite Sweet Treat Tent die cut.

3. Cut BOTH tabs off and either adhere top of SWEET TREAT TENT die cuts together with adhesive or tie together with ribbon, twine, etc.

The SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts die is made to perfectly hold snack size treats, like the M&Ms shown above and other goodies, too!  Here are few more pics of these gifties that I have made for a few friends using TINSEL ‘N TRIM, (the previously released, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS) and the new TAG ME Confetti Cuts…

. . . . .

The holiday fun isn’t quite over for today…

As I have mentioned in several posts before, I love being able to offer maximum versatility in our products.  Our KEY WORDS COLLECTION is a shining example of being able to get the most from your Reverse Confetti stamps.  This collection features one “key word” that can be mixed and matched with other words in the set to create a wide variety of sentiments.  Our holiday themed KEY WORD COLLECTION set is BRING ON THE MERRY

KW_BOTMProductGraphicSheet300

Here is a sampling of how you can mix and match these stamps to create some wonderful holiday sentiments…

MixSheet

And, speaking of versatility, the SWEET TREAT TENT can be used for more than just a treat holder (just wait until you see what the Confetti Crew has done with it)!  Here I created a mini album using BRING ON THE MERRY and this Confetti Cuts die by cutting several pieces out and binding them together…

MiniBookCover

Detail of cover, numbers from LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS (previously released) embossed on punched circles…

SO STRIPEY stamped on the binding…

I created embellished cards to go on the “pages.”  Not all adhered, since I want to wait until I have all the pictures from the holidays to include with them.

MiniBook1pg

“YUM” created with LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS and stripes from SO STRIPEY

MiniBook1

Tree created from polka dots chevrons from ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS (previously released)…

NOVEMBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

By admin
on November 01, 2013

Hello and Happy Friday!

I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!  Here at Reverse Confetti it was spent working on a lot of behind the scenes stuff and prepping for next week.  Of course, I stepped out of the office to enjoy the evening with the kiddos on their mission to induce a sugar coma.  Here are my very own sweets as Vanellope von Schweetz (from the Wreck it Ralph movie) and Spiderman (with unofficial head gear).

Happy Fall, my friends!

. . . . .

Yesterday, you got to meet some AWESOME new additions to the Confetti Crew!  Today, they will be sharing their creations using the November SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY (see pic links below)…

RC_SFYTT6

This is a really fun sketch with a lot of possibilities for placement of images and sentiments.  I know that you will have fun playing with it and making it your own.

Here’s my SFYTT card using FOREVER FALL (now back in stock) and WHOLE LOTTA DOTS

SFYTT1Nov13

I stamped the overlapping circles from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS in Delicata Golden Glitz Pigment Ink (love this stuff!).  The two lighter colored pumpkins (FOREVER FALL) are also stamped in gold, making this fairly clean and simple card really shimmer and sparkle in the light.

SFYTTNov13

I’ve mentioned a few times that there are a few things that we are tweaking and kicking up a notch.  I’ve tweaked a few of the SFYTT details, to be sure to read through them carefully and don’t forget that EVERYONE is invited to play along now no matter what stamps you are using!

SFYTT_postgraphic

NOTES TO KNOW:

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 a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 15th of each month.

NEW CONFETTI CREW INTRODUCTIONS

By admin
on October 31, 2013

I am just bursting at the seams…and it’s not because of all the Trunk-or-Treat Halloween candy I’ve politely relieved my children of already.  I’m bursting at the seams with excitement as today has finally arrived.  Ok, you know I LOVE HALLOWEEN, but that’s not why I am so thrilled (ok, maybe a little, but not for the sake of this blog post).  I am so very excited because today I get to announce our new Confetti Crew team members!

As I had mentioned before, we have decided to “kick it up a notch” here at Reverse Confetti.  While we concluded the ‘Fetti Finds/weekly link list, we also announced the addition of a color challenge that will be introduced in just a couple of weeks.  Now that we have both the SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY and COLOR CHALLENGE happening each month, we decided to bring on a couple of new team members to be dedicated to these challenges, as well as the hops.  You’ll be seeing their creations tomorrow when we introduce the November SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY.

So, without further adieu, let me introduce to you THE CHALLENGE CREW

(names and pictures linked to their respective blogs)

My name is Daniela Dobson and I live in Dallas, TX. I am married to Peter and we have a little boy, Alex, who is 5 years old. I have been scrapbooking and stamping for over 10 years. I really enjoy challenges and strive to be innovative. I love recording every day moments, especially now, with my son. I like using a variety of products and techniques to create lasting memories. I have always kept a record of my life through journaling and photos, and scrapbooking allows me to combine those two. I don’t want to forget the important and not so important moments. When I am not scrapbooking I enjoy cooking, running, reading and watching TV.

Hi!  My name is Laurie Willison.  I am a part time SAHM and part time RN.  I have 2 kiddos at home and an amazing husband who puts up with my hobby!  I started scrapbooking in 1997 and was taken over by card making in 2007!  I absolutely love this hobby!  It has given me such an amazing creative outlet.  The most amazing part of this whole thing are the friendships that I have made!  Crafty friends are truly the best!  I love Reverse Confetti and all the gorgeous fonts and sentiments they have available and am looking forward to being on the challenge team with these amazing ladies.  You can find me over at my blog, Soapbox Creations! 

And last, but not least, on the CHALLENGE CREW, is

LAURIE SCHMIDLIN

Are you scratching your head and asking, “Isn’t she on the CONFETTI CREW already?”  Yes, she is.  However, she is a new mommy (again) and has is taken a role on this team until the diaper cream settles.  You can read more about Laurie from her original introduction HERE.

Please note that the CHALLENGE CREW is a rotating team, so you will see new faces here from time to time.  Of course, we’ll always be keeping an eye out for those Reverse Confetti stamping rock stars to be part of this team.

. . . . .

In addition to the CHALLENGE CREW, I also am giddy about announcing a couple of newbies to the CONFETTI CREW.

Please join me in welcoming…

My name is Leigh Penner and I live in Southern Manitoba, Canada, with my husband of 17.5 years, Cameron and our three children: Austin (14), Jonah (11) & Sage (9). I work as a substitute teacher for our city’s school division. I started scrapbooking 10.5 years ago and discovered stamping almost three years ago. I love making layouts and cards! When I’m not stamping, I like to go for bike rides, read, play board games & do tae kwon do with my kids (I have my second degree black belt.)  I’m super excited to be joining the Confetti Crew & look forward to designing for RC!

How exciting to be part of the Reverse Confetti Crew!  Last spring, when I read that Jen del Muro was launching her own clear stamp company, I knew it would be fabulous!  I’ll never forget inking up my first Reverse Confetti stamp set, Peacock Pretties…needless to say, I’ve been an RC fan ever since!  Reverse Confetti designs are bold and graphical, trendy and fun…and I’m thrilled to be able to work alongside Jen and an ALL-STAR design team to share projects with our ‘Fetti Fans!

See you tomorrow with the new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY and don’t forget…
