CONFETTI CAMERA WITH KELLY

Hi Fetti Friends, It's Kelly here today! This month's Confetti Camera theme is all about friends! The whole reason I started stamping in the first place was to create gifts and cards for my friends, so this month's theme is right up my alley! I love creating handmade sewn gifts as well, so the fabric I used for the key wristlet and tissue cozy was the perfect starting point for this entire ensemble.
 
To begin, I created a cute little tag to attach to the key wristlet to give it that little something extra. I cut a piece of https://reverseconfetti.com/collections/cardstock-8-5x11/products/piggy-bank-cardstock-8-5-x-11 Piggy Bank cardstock and rounded the corners. I also used the https://reverseconfetti.com/products/stitched-rays-cover-panel-confetti-cuts Stitched Rays Cover Panel to give it some extra detail. The sentiment, which is from https://reverseconfetti.com/collections/all-stamp-sets/products/the-most-beauty The Most Beauty, is heat embossed in silver to coordinate with the metal on the key wristlet. I also colored four of each image from the https://reverseconfetti.com/collections/all-stamp-sets/products/tall-blooms Tall Blooms stamp set using Copic markers. I used colors that are present in the fabric for a cohesive gift set.  Once I had all of the them colored, I used the https://reverseconfetti.com/collections/confetti-cuts/products/tall-blooms-confetti-cuts Tall Blooms Confetti Cuts to die cut them. I chose the purple one to add to the tag to bring in some additional color.
 
The friend that I made this for always compliments me on my cards, so I thought it would be fun to create a 3 by 3 card collection with envelopes that I could put inside of a container made with the https://reverseconfetti.com/collections/confetti-cuts/products/bag-tags-creator Bags and Tags Creator Confetti Cuts.  I scored the bottom of each piece at one inch, but then I adhered them further apart to create a larger inside area to make sure the bulk of the 4 cards and envelopes would fit. It ended up being perfect. I decorated the front of the box, as well as each of the four cards using the same stamp sets and elements as the tag.
 
Each card measures 3 by 3 and uses a different sentiment from either The  Most Beauty stamp set or Tall Blooms. I realized that this will be a gift that keeps on giving, as my friend sends these little cards to 4 other friends! How fun! Two of the cards are made with Piggy Bank cardstock and the other two are made with https://reverseconfetti.com/collections/cardstock-8-5x11/products/iced-aqua-cardstock-8-5-x-11 Iced Aqua. It is almost a perfect match to the blue in the fabric! 
 
 
I love how each sentiment looks embossed in silver to highlight the beautiful flowers and leaves from Tall Blooms. Once the cards were finished, I tucked them inside of the box and tied it shut with some grey gingham ribbon. I also tied up the tissue cozy with the same ribbon to keep it cohesive. I also made a quick tag to add to the cozy as well. It really ties in the "friend" theme nicely! I can't wait to give this handmade gift to my friend! I've found that gifts from the heart always mean so much more than something store bought.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS VIDEO

Greetings! Heather here today to share a fun way to package up some fall treats - and create a shaker tag with an autumn theme!



Here is this week's video detailing my process:



I started off by filling one of the cute Bitty Window Bags with some candy corn that I picked up from Whole Foods. I know it still isn't healthy...but it feels a little better! Plus, I kind of love the slightly more rustic feel to them due to the natural colors!

I created my tag using Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts with Sunburst Tag Layer Confetti Cuts layered over the top. I did some ink blending with Bumblebee and Tangerine Dye inks, and then added my sentiment from Autumn Blessings stamp set. It is filled with sparkly flat confetti mix, some jute string tied at the top, and then attached with a square of foam adhesive to my treat packaging! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

Hi, ‘Fetti Fans!  Kathy here to share a project for our October Confetti Camera:  For A Friend.  Creating a handmade gift/card always seems to mean so much to the person you give it to and makes them feel very special!
 
I found this great mug for a friend who loves coffee.  I thought it would be fun to have a special coaster to go with the mug – which I filled with chocolate and Baileys!  I took a plain coaster and used a few colors of alcohol inks including gold for the background and then stamped a sentiment and leaves from the Fall Foliage set; coloring in the leaves with more alcohol ink.
 
For the tag, I cut Tangerine and Dark Roast cardstock using the Round Top Tags Confetti Cuts.  I stamped and die cut two leaves from Sand cardstock and one from Premier Polar White cardstock which I copic colored.  The ‘friend’ word is from Fancy Words Confetti Cuts cut from gold cardstock.
 
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you’re inspired to create something for your special friend!

Hello! Heather here today to share a a fun fall scene with you that uses a slightly unexpected fall color combo - nice and feminine with a touch of florals and pinks!


Here is this week's video detailing my process:


As I was sitting down to make this video, I had no idea what I was going to make. I asked my daughter to pick a set for me to work with - and she pulled out the beautiful Autumn Blessings stamp set - so I went to work with it! The first idea that popped into my head was adding that cutie pie squirrel from Nuts About You sitting on top of the leaves and flowers - so I started there!



Couldn't resist adding a background with Triangles Cover Panel, and a bit of Bellini Dye Ink was the perfect shade to add some ink blending on the background behind it. Finally, a tag from Tall Tag Trio was perfect to place my sentiment on!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

FINAL DAY OF FALL-IDAYS HOP & SALE

FINAL DAY OF FALL-IDAYS HOP & SALE

Hello, 'Fetti Fans and welcome to the third and final day of our annual HAPPY FALL-IDAYS blog hop (AND SALE!) event!  Today we are celebrating with Christmas themed projects.

When I asked the question, "What is your favorite holiday to create for?" on Facebook, the answer was a resounding "Christmas" from you.  I, too, love creating for Christmas.  It's not my favorite, but it definitely ranks up there!  One of the things that I truly love creating for Christmas is unique tags.  I feel like they are just the icing on the cake of all the wrapping and it's so fun to make them unique to the person that is receiving the gift.
When you think of traditional holiday colors, black generally isn't what comes to mind, but I used black (our MIDNIGHT cardstock) as the backdrop of this embellished tag.  I love how everything "pops" off of it.
The tag base is cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock with the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die set.  It is then layered with the MIDNIGHT cardstock HOLLY JOLLY TAG LAYER die cut.
From there, I added a bulb from the MERRY & BRIGHT stamp set, stamped in SALSA ink.  I then added the HOLLY Confetti Cuts, layered in AVOCADO and LIME GREEN cardstock.  The berries are cut from SALSA cardstock with a layer of FLAMINGO cardstock underneath.
 
As a finishing touch, I added striped ribbon, tied off with red twine and gold jingle bells.
 
. . . . .
 

Ok, time to head off on your merry way to see what the Confetti Crew has created for the final day of HAPPY FALL-IDAYS!

My card today features one of my most favorite Confetti Cuts dies: GRATEFUL THANKFUL BLESSED.  It is such a wonderful sentiment for this time of year!
Here I paired it with the new FALL FOLIAGE stamp set leaves, which I stamped in STONE ink on our CLOUD WHITE cardstock and then watercolored in beautiful fall colors.
The sentiment is mounted on the SMALL DIAMOND TILES COVER PANEL that is cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and popped up on the card base using dimensional adhesive.
I've been on real watercoloring kick lately and it's just so perfect for the FALL FOLIAGE images!

HAPPY FALL-IDAYS: 3 DAY HOP AND SALE

Hello, 'Fetti Fans and welcome to HAPPY FALL-IDAYS!

This is a 3 day hop and sale event geared towards the fall and Christmas holidays.   Today's FALL-IDAY celebration is focused on HALLOWEEN (and Fall because not everyone celebrates Halloween).  There's a full hop list at the end of this post - be sure to stop at each designers blog for some fabulous inspiration!
. . . . .
I've created a cute little ghost-y card using a variety of Reverse Confetti products...
The base of the card is cut from our PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock and then I added a BIG STRIPES COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts layer, also in the white cardstock.  The sentiment (from FRIGHTENING FRIENDS) was stamped before I mounted it on dimensional adhesive to the card base
The main image panel contains 3 ghosts cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock with the HALLOWEEN BIT Confetti Cuts die set.  I mounted them on a smaller panel that I ran through the Big Shot with the STITCHED RAYS COVER PANEL.  I love the added detail of the stitched lines.  The moon was created simply with a circle punch.  For a finishing touch, I added the sequins and rhinestones as stars above the cute lil' ghosts.
. . . . .
Ready to see what spooky creations that the Confetti Crew has come up with?  Check 'em out...

Hey Reverse Confetti Friends!  It's Amy T here with a card and coordinating gift for a friend.   I used the same colors and overall theme for both:


Let's chat about the card first.  It's a 4.25 x 4.25 in card with a Midnight base and a RC Aqua panel that uses the square stitched window from the Bags & Tags Creator confetti cuts.


I inked up the Think Pink set on Premier Polar White cardstock.  The images have been colored with alcohol markers.  Do you the subtle pink clouds in the background?  I used the Wonky Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts as a stencil.  I blended ink on Bristol cardstock.  I finished off my card with a sentiment from the Think Pink set using Midnight ink.

The gift is a Treat Tube filled with washi tape.  This particular stack was sold as a set at a local chain craft store.  


The Treat Tube Topper has been cut from Midnight cardstock.  The Flamingo and sentiment are from the Think Pink set and are nestled onto one of Tall Tag Trio's.   I cut a bit of glitter cardstock for the top part of the tag and finished it off with a button and twine.  Do you spy the flamingo washi behind the tag?  That was my inspiration for the stamp choice.

A great gift for a crafty friend, who doesn't love washi?  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
