Again, here is an overview of our schedule...

. . . . .
Let's hop into that pile of leaves!
First up in our introductions is a wonderful set that can be used for so many things! 

FALL FOLIAGE

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
. . . . .
My first project today features both the new FALL FOLIAGE set and the new BAG & TAGS CREATOR Confetti Cuts die set...
I started by creating the bag from STONE cardstock and stamping the leaves on it, also in STONE.  The tag is made with the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die set and the BIG STRIPES TAG LAYER Confetti Cuts die set.
The leaves from the FALL FOLIAGE set are watercolored and layered under the sentiment panel (STONE Cardstock).
Here's a side view of the project.  I filled the bag with a cello bag filled with yummy caramels.  This will make the perfect teacher/neighbor/friend giftie this fall!
. . . . .
I had so much watercoloring these leaves that I kept on going to create this card...
This card packs a colorful punch with these bright fall colored palette.  The 2 leaves that are popped up are also offset with a gold glitter die cut leaf.  I love the detail that this gives!
I think that we all work on our thankfulness a little more during the fall/Thanksgiving season and I think this sentiment is a perfect way to let someone that you know that they mean a lot to you.
. . . . .
This next set is perfect for all the cards this season, but you can most definitely use it year round!

COTTON & THISTLES

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
Before I get to my next project, I have a new (and awesome) Cover Panel to share with you!

TRIANGLES COVER PANEL

This card features both the COTTON & THISTLES sets along with the TRIANGLES COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts...
One of my friend's dads just had heart surgery and I made this card with her in mind.  I started by cutting the TRIANGLE COVER PANEL from PREMIER POLAR WHITE and popping it up on the PREMIER POLAR WHITE card base. 
From there, I added the watercolored jar and florals.  To give the illusion that the flowers are in water, I stamped them in STORMY ink, rather than MIDNIGHT so that they would have a lighter colored edge.  The cotton and thistles are colored with watercolors, as well.
The sentiment is sweet without being overly mushy and something a little different than the standard "thinking of you."
. . . . .
My next card also uses the new COTTON & THISTLES set along with paper from the new ABUNDANT AUTUMN 6x6 paper pad.
For this card, I used only the floral image, which is watercolored (I had A LOT of fun watercoloring one day!).  I wrapped the bouquet in twine and tied it off with a tiny bow (so cute!).
One more detail shot of this unique arrangement...
. . . . .

Ok, it's time to see what the Confetti Crew has come up with using these fun fall goodies!  Enjoy all of the inspiration and don't forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way.

Howdy, 'Fetti Fans and welcome to DAY ONE of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  We have a VERY exciting release this month!  It's chock full of products for Halloween, Fall and Christmas.  Today, our main focus is on Halloween, but I think that you'll see that many of these products can be used well beyond the spooktacular holiday.

Here's what the next few days look like here at Reverse Confetti...

. . . . .

. . . . .
Alright, you know the drill...sit back, relax and hop on through all the amazing introductions and inspiration that we have to share today!
First up is our new 6x6 paper pad...

ABUNDANT AUTUMN

Coordinating Confetti Colors: Midnight, Lead, Sand, Magenta, Stormy, Tangerine, Royal Purple, RC Aqua
. . . . .
My first stamp set introduction today is from the line of "critters" that you all love so much.  Instead of animals this time, we have cuties in costumes out trick-or-treating...

FRIGHTENING FRIENDS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts
. . . . .
My first card today is a CAS design using our cardstock (Midnight, Lead, Stormy) to create an ombre "pattern" to set off my lil' friend in red...
I stamped both the devil and jack-o-lantern images on our PREMIER POLAR WHITE Cardstock and colored them with Copics.
This set is a lot of fun to play around with, as you can use the images on their own like I did here or create a cute scene (as shown in a project below).
. . . . .
There is no doubt that I love packaging...unique and fun packaging to be more precise.  I loved our TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts, but we have since retired it.  With that product in mind, along with my love of packaging, I created the new...

BAG & TAGS CREATOR

There are a few different things you can do with this Confetti Cuts die set.  What I have done on the projects below is cut 2 of the large panel and then scored them about an inch up from the bottom.  I then adhered the 2 scored flaps together to create a little bag/tote. 
You can also cut two and adhere the bottom and sides for a cute pouch.  Or use the panel on a card or projects. 
The square with stitched detailing is a separate die in this set that you can use to make a window.
Before I get to my projects featuring this fabulous giftie maker, I need to introduce you to another stamp set!

BOO YEA

These circle stamps are made to fit in the solid circle die included in the BAG & TAGS CREATOR Confetti Cuts die set. Just like this...
As you can see on the one on the left, I used the new ABUNDANT AUTUMN 6x6 paper pad to cut the front of the bag (back is Midnight).  The tag hanging from the tote is the THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts and I created a sweet little scene using the FRIGHTENING FRIENDS stamps and Confetti Cuts.  The "trick -or- treat" sentiment (stamped in TANGERINE ink) is from the BOO YEA stamp set and is cut out with the circle from the BAG & TAGS CREATOR Confetti Cuts die set.
The images on this tag are colored with Copic markers.
The next bag/tote also has patterned paper from the new ABUNDANT AUTUMN 6x6 paper pad.  I love the tone on tone orange polka dots!
The trick-or-treat sentiment is stamped in TANGERINE onto our PREMIER POLAR WHITE Cardstock and then popped up on the hang tag (cut from MIDNIGHT).
The last of the this trio of bags is cut from GRAPE SODA Cardstock.  I like the the solid color shows off the stitched detail just a little more.
The tag on this card has a bat cut from MIDNIGHT Cardstock with the (previously released) HALLOWEEN BITS Confetti Cuts die set.  I popped it up on the stripe detail panel on top of a PREMIER POLAR WHITE hang tag.
. . . . .
I have just one more introduction for you today.  It's a new cover panel die that I think that you are going to LOVE!  It's definitely fun to play around with and it's versatile and can be used throughout the year.

CRISS CROSS COVER PANEL

. . . . .
On this card, I cut the new CRISS CROSS COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts from MIDNIGHT Cardstock and then cut strips of TANGERINE and RUST Cardstock and layered them behind.
The sentiment is from the new BOO YEA stamp set and is stamped in TANGERINE ink.  I embellished with the sweet lil' bat from the (previously released) BEST WITCHES stamp set.
I can't wait to do a rainbow version of this!
. . . . .

Well, the time has come for me to send you on your way!  Enjoy all of the inspiration that the Confetti Crew has put together for you today and don't forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way.

INTRODUCING OUR NEW 'FETTI FRIENDS

By Jennifer del Muro

Hey, 'Fetti Fans!  It's September, which means it's RELEASE MONTH.  Just as a reminder, we have releases every other month on the 8th of the month.  Our COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI begins in just a few days on the 5th.  I think you'll love that we've packed Halloween, Fall and Christmas into this release (it's pretty fabby if you ask me!).
. . . . .
Of course, with a new release comes new guest designers, or 'Fetti Friends, as we like to call them.  With such a fabulous release up ahead we have THREE great new 'Fetti Friends joining us for the next couple of months.  I'm really looking forward to the magic they create with the new goodies!
First up...
Hello Reverse Confetti's friends ,

I'm Maria Sabina, a young crafter from a small town in Romania called Alba Iulia.
The story of my passion for papercrafting, goes back in 2009 when I came across some papercrafting videos on
Youtube.It all started with a pack of black cardsock,a paper trimmer and a bottle of pink glitter. I love a bit of everything and because of that I like to try new things. Cardmaking,3D projects,sewing,mixed media are just some of the things I enjoy.
I love coloring stamped images or do simple stamping,because they are the focal point of my final creation.I love challenges,because they take me away from my comfort zone and from my small craft space.This is a great opportunity to show you my creations using the Reverse Confetti goodies.
I hope you get inspired by my work and don't forget to challenge yourself with new things!
. . . . .
Hi! I'm Lea, and I currently reside in Minneapolis, MN. Wife to Josh and mom to 2 precious babies in Heaven, Ellie & Layton. I am a dog mama to Bailey, the grumpy...I mean precocious yorkie, and Sadie, the sweet but not so smart cocker spaniel. (We always tell her that she's lucky she's so pretty!) I have a Business Administration degree with my emphasis in Marketing & Management from the University of Montana. I also attended career training at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography for both intensive courses. I’ve been a creative soul & lover of photography since a very young age, and I adore that I get to utilize everything I love in all my different roles in the papercrafting industry. I’ve been papercrafting in some form since childhood, but officially became a part of the industry in 2002. I’ve loved watching it ebb, flow and change over the years, and look forward to seeing and being part of its continued growth!
. . . . .
Hi there! My name is Crystal Thompson, mamma to 4 tiny humans, 3 fur babies and wife. Currently living in the Pacific Northwest. I am an avid card maker, 3-4 a day! I got started back in 2012 wanting a creative outlet from all the day-to-day. Now I teach card making techniques online and throughout the PNW small classes groups. I am so excited to be guest designing for Reverse Confetti as I have always been a fan! Can't wait to spend some time with y'all. Cheers!

Confetti Camera with Olga

On this Confetti Camera we need to combine  3 stamp sets, 2 stand-alone dies and one paper pad. Hmm... This is a very interesting experience - to apply many products from Reverse Confetti at once.
I'm sure you'll agree that Reverse Confetti has very interesting and beautiful patterns. So, I decided to focus on this and got this simple scrap card.
To create a background, I put one layer of paper on the other ising Fun Times 6x6 Pad. Then I glued a charming Polka Panel Confetti on top. And then I glued the window which I made using  Dashed Line Tag Confetti Cuts to the foam tape and stuck into the center a large flower, which was made by combining 2 sets of stamps - Pattern Builder & Mod Floral Stack. Lovely sentiment from the Birthday Wishes stamp set.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you liked this simple but interesting kind of card!

VIDEO - WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By Reverse Confetti
on August 15, 2018
Greetings! Heather here today to share a card using a technique I don't see used very often these days, but is super fun - the Chalkboard Technique!


Here is this week's video detailing my process:



I used Stitched Squares Confetti Cuts to die cut my Midnight Cardstock panel, and the zig zag border from Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts to die cut the border on my Iced Aqua Cardstock border.

I used Elegant Florals for the lovely solid floral image, and the stunning sentiment set, The Most Beauty, for the sentiment. All finished off on a Flamingo Cardstock cardbase!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

CONFETTI CAMERA WITH TRICIA BARBER

By Reverse Confetti

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 3-2-1 cards from each of our designers. What that means: 3 stamp sets, 2 stand alone Confetti Cuts dies and 1 paper pad.
A couple of things to note:
1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Stock Your Stash on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.
2) Each designer will follow the same “theme” until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member (then it’s a new round with new questions/theme).
Today on Confetti Camera is the so very talented, TRICIA BARBER.
. . . . .

Hello everyone!   It is mine turn for this week's Confetti Camera where the theme is 3-2-1 Stamp!   We needed to use 3 stamp sets, 2 stand alone dies and 1 paper pad.   I started from the paper pad and then worked my way backwards.   I knew that I wanted to use the fun new Cue the Confetti paper pad.  So I pulled out three of the patterned papers and went looking thru my dies and stamps to see what I could come up with.    I decided to use the patterned paper to create a multi colored moon to go along with the Moon Men stamp set.     For the moon, I used the Boo To You Confetti Cuts for the large circle die.   I trimmed down the pattern paper to fit across the moon and to add some interest, I cut each rectangle into a triangle to lay across my moon.   

 

I stamped an astronaut from the Moon Men stamp set onto Premier Polar White cardstock and then colored with my Copic markers.   I added some Glossy Accents to his helmet.   I wanted to create a birthday card (both of my son's have birthdays coming up soon!) so I used the Congratulations stamp set and Confetti Cuts to stamp the balloons using Reverse Confetti Parakeet, Royal Purple and Iced Aqua inks.  

The sentiment is from the Birthday Wishes stamp set and was stamped directly onto Premier Polar White cardstock that had been die cut with the Stitched Rays Cover Panel.   I added some glittery accents using the Moon Men and Congratulations Confetti Cuts.   Try joining in with the 3-2-1 Stamp! and see what you can create! 

 

Supplies: 

Stamp Sets:  Moon Men, Birthday Wishes and Congratulations 

Confetti Cuts: Boo to You, Stitched Rays Cover Panel, Moon Men, Congratulations 

Paper:  Cue the Confetti 6x6 paper pad, Premier Polar White 

Inks: Parakeet, Royal Purple, Iced Aqua
