TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Jen here with a quick note, before we get to today’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY post from Confetti Crew member, Heather…

Just as a reminder, our shipping department is closed for new orders until 3/20.  We will be checking emails, but please note that there may be a slight delay in response times as we settle into our new home and office.

Two of my favorite sets from this month’s release are PETALS ‘N POSIES and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS, I love how well they coordinate together!

 031814

To create my card, I first started by stamping the flower centers from Petals ‘n Posies onto vellum, and heat embossing them with white embossing powder.  Next, I used the coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts to die cut a few different flower shapes.  Once that was done, I assembled the flowers with pop dots of varying thickness.

 031814 CU

I then stamped one of the stripe strips from SO STRIPEY (haha, say that five times fast!) on a diagonal slant, before heat embossing with white embossing powder.  I trimmed the end of the  turquoise card stock to give it a banner shape.  Next, I stamped one of the banner images and sentiments from Beautiful Banners onto white card stock.  To cut it out, I used the coordinating BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts.

To finish up the card, I created a 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base in white, and layered it with gray polka dot patterned paper before adding some coral twine.  I attached the striped strip, flowers and banner to the card front before embellishing with white enamel dots.

Confetti Camera

By admin
on March 13, 2014

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, STACEY SCHAFER

Wednesday in the Works

By admin
on March 12, 2014

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

For those of you following my relocation adventures…the packers come today!  We have 2 days of packing and then another day of loading and then we are on our way and moving in to our new home on Monday.  So, now the answer to the question that I have been getting a lot of lately…Is there downtime for Reverse Confetti?  I wish I could wave a magic wand and say no, but…Yes, there is.  Orders placed by Friday at midnight (EST) will be processed and shipped on Saturday.  While the store will still be open for shopping, shipping on new orders will not resume until Thursday, 3/20, while our family gets moved in and (slightly) settled in our new home.

This week’s WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS is brought to you by Confetti Crew member, Val Stangle.

Please note, this project feature the CARTON CUTIES stamps and Confetti Cuts.  The CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts will be back in stock next week.

ValerieIntroPic

Today’s Wednesday in the Works in an Easter themed home decor frame for our entry table.  CARTON CUTIES takes center stage with die cut bunnies and Easter grass nestled in the die cut egg carton.

val1

Two cartons were die cut and the top trimmed off one; the bottom was popped up with dimensional foam to give the carton a bit of dimension and a place for the easter grass before adding the bunnies.

val2

 The SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts provided the mat for the egg carton.  Tip: The treat tent was die cut twice, once from patterned paper, once from cardstock; both were glued together and trimmed before assembling.

This made for a sturdy base for the focal image that will hold up over the years.  Versafine black ink was quickly embossed with clear ep and heat set to give it a crisp look and to prevent it from fading over time.

Reverse Confetti stamps and die cuts are fun to mix and match, in this project you’ll see I’ve combined several sets and dies to create a fun, coordinated piece that will be fun to set out every year!

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on March 11, 2014

Well hello there, ‘Fetti fans!!

AmberIntroPic

Amber here today with Time for a Card Tuesday! I’m so excited I get to hijack the RC blog today and share a card with you:)

By now, you should have ordered yourself some new RC goodies, right? I mean, that was one fabulous release. So many fun new stamps and dies.

Today I have a card to share with you made with PETALS ‘n POSIES and the coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set.

 WishYouWell1a

I used this week’s Retro Sketch for the layout and some fun, springy colors.  I embossed the kraft cardstock with the Chain embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts and then added a scalloped border I created with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts. I also used the same scallop border on the yellow panel. For the sentiment, I cut the sentiment into a couple different pieces so I could use them on different lines. I do this often, it makes the stamps that much more versatile. If you don’t want to cut your stamp, you could always mask of the part you don’t want to ink and then stamp, and then mask off the other side and stamp again.

 WishYouWell1c

I have a whole bunch of these flowers already cut out and stored with my dies so I can pull them out and stamp right away. I used some yellows and blues for my flowers and then of course, the green leaf sprig.

WishYouWell1b

I finished the card off with a half of a doily and a rhinestone. Here’s a picture of the supplies I used:

I don’t like taking a whole lot of time on the inside of cards, but it’s always nice to dress them up a little with some die cuts and a simple sentiment (shown here stamped on the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set-which is also used on the front of the card).

As I have mentioned, I was “thinking spring” when I designed these sets and this new set (and coordinating Confetti Cuts) is about as spring as it can get…eggs and chicks and bunnies, oh my!  And, don’t forget the Peeps!

Introducing CARTON CUTIES (which may just be my favorite RC set to date!)…

CartonCutiesProductGraphicSheet250

And, the coordinating CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts die set…

CartonCutiesConfettiCuts

My first project today is a tag that stars the darling chicks from the CARTON CUTIES set. I colored them with Copics and popped them into the cracked half egg (stamped and die cut).  The scallop edge on the top is cut from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts and then cut again using the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.

HeyChickieTag

I knew exactly what I wanted to create with the “you’re good peeps” sentiment…a Peeps on a stick project!

CartonCutiesPeeps

Detail of the tag…

CartonCutiesPeepsTag

To create this sweet lil’ Peeps on a stick project I skewered 3 pink Peeps and then placed a (food safe) cello bag over them.  I tied the bag with pink gingham ribbon and added the small tag (cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set).  I embellished the tag with a banner die cut (cut from the *new* BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts) stamped with the “you’re good peeps” sentiment and a bunny head head die cut (from the CARTON CUTIES Confetti Cuts die set).  Such a fun, cute and easy spring/Easter giftie!

. . . . .

Spring Break is just around the corner (it’s next week for us) and then we are in the home stretch of the school year, meaning it’s time to get that Teacher Appreciation and end of year giftie thinking cap on!  And, don’t forget those fun school days scrapbook pages, too!

Introducing, CLASS ACT

CAProductGraphicSheet250

And, the coordinating CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set…

ClassActConfettiCuts

When I design stamp sets and dies, I am not always just looking forward.  I want all of our products to be as compatible with each other as possible.  With that in mind, the rounded rectangle in the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set was made to be able to fit inside the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts scalloped rectangle die cut, like shown on this card…

ClassAct2

ClassAct2_detail

To create the focal panel, I first cut two rounded rectangles…one from the pink polka dot paper and one from white cardstock.  I then cut the apple from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set from the pink polka dot paper.  I layered the 2 sheets on top of each other and then centered the sentiment, stamped in navy dye ink.  Next, I popped up the pink polka dots panel and added the leaf (remember that as the flame from Wednesday’s project?) and the linen thread.  That panel was then added to the scalloped rectangle panel and adhered to the card base with two TAG ME Confetti Cuts large tags cut from navy cardstock.  I think that these would be great to duplicate in different colors and give to teachers as card sets.

My final project I am sharing with you today is a card featuring the CLASS ACT stamp and Confetti Cuts sets, as well as the *new* OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts set that I revealed on Wednesday.  I really had a lot of fun creating this card!  I started by stamping and die cutting two “sheets” of notebook paper and then added the alphabet to one. I embellished those panels with the stamped and die cut apple.  The quotation mark pattern paper was die cut with the perforation line and notebook edge from the OFFICE EDGES set.  My final touches were adding the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER strip on the left and the enamel dots (can’t seem to put those things away!).

ClassAct1

The double lined tab stamp set was designed to hold each of the sentiments included in this set.  Here I embossed it, and the “You’re a Class Act” sentiment in white on black cardstock and then attached it by stapling…which just happened to coordinate with the entire theme of the card.

ClassAct1_detail

. . . . .

There is so much more inspiration to see using all these stamps and dies that are releasing on Saturday, March 8th!

ProductDetails

Carton Cuties 

Carton Cuties is the must have Spring and Easter set that’s like no other ever created!  Fill up this egg carton with a variety of eggs or the bunnies and chick that are included, too.  What’s even more fun?…a matching Confetti Cuts die set!

Designed by Angelica Suarez

 Set of 15 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

Carton 2.4” x 1.9”

Chick 1” x .9”

Class Act

Class Act will be the set you reach for time and time again when in need of a fun card or project for that favorite teacher or class.  All three sentiments fit within the large outlined tab image, as well as on the notebook paper. Create lots of fresh and fun projects with the polka dot apple that will send you to the head of the class!  For an A+, be sure to pair this set with its matching Confetti Cuts die set!  It also pairs well with the Office Edges Confetti Cuts die set, too!

Set of 11 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

Notebook Paper 2.0” x 2.54”

 Apple 1.36” x 1.27”

CONFETTI CUTS: Carton Cuties

It doesn’t get much cuter than the Carton Cuties stamp set and the matching Confetti Cuts die set makes it super easy to cut out those images and create the perfect project!

Set of 6 wafer thin dies

 SIZE REFERENCE:

Carton 2.5” x 2”

Peep Head .75” x 1.18”

CONFETTI CUTS: Class Act

Go straight to the head of the class with projects made from the Class Act Confetti Cuts die set and coordinating Class Act stamp set (sold separately).  This set contains four dies…a rounded rectangle, tab, apple and leaf.  This rounded rectangle also fits perfectly within the scalloped rectangle of the previously released Love Note Confetti Cuts die set…just one way we like to make our products easy to mix and match.

Set of 4 wafer thin dies

NOTE: Many of our die sets are connected by thin wire and may need to be released from each other.  To do so, tin snips are best, but these can often easily be taken apart by a gentle hand.  Rough edges where the dies were attached may be sanded lightly (careful not to sand the cutting edge).
