First up is our new 6x6 paper pad...

FROM CUPID

. . . . .
Love is definitely in the air here at Reverse Confetti!  Many of our sets have a very Valentine-y theme, but the cool thing is that you can use them throughout the year, too!  I'm going to kick of the stamp and Confetti Cut reveals with one of my favorites from this release...

HELLO LOVELY

Before I get to my card that uses this fun Confetti Cuts die set, here's the first of our stamp reveals...

PATTERNED HEARTS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set...
 . . . . .
My first card is very clean and simple and uses a combination of the HELLO LOVELY Confetti Cuts and PATTERNED HEARTS...
I stamped the heart image in BRICK ink and then added it to the PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock panel that is backed with BRICK cardstock.  I have it popped up just a bit for a little added dimension.
I added the small sentiment below the HELLO LOVELY cut.  I'll get to those diagonal stitches here in just a second *wink*.
. . . . .
So, about those stitched diagonal lines...

DIAGONAL STITCHES COVER PANEL

Isn't this the best?  I have a feeling that I may be reaching for it on every project!
I paired it (slightly trimmed down) with the new PATTERNED HEARTS in a cute shaker card here...
The dotty heart is stamped in ROSE ink and is mounted on top of the acetate of the shaker, which is cut from the larger heart in the PATTERNED HEARTS Confetti Cuts die set. 
I just love this sentiment!  I love to give thank you notes and this is such a sweet and fun way to say thank you.
 
. . . . .
This next card is the first on that I actually made when I sat down to create.  I had it in my head for a long while.  It's very simple, but I love how the tone on tone hearts pop off the white.
I stamped the bold striped heart in SALSA ink on SALSA cardstock.
This is definitely going to be hubs' Valentine card...good thing he stopped reading my blog ages ago LOL!
. . . . .
We are completely the Halloween-Christmas-Valentines trifecta of circle sentiment stamps with this new set...

LOVE YOU MOST

Like its sister sets, BOO YEA and CHRISTMAS CIRCLES, this set can be cut with the circles in the BAG & TAGS CREATOR and SCALLOPED BAG & TAGS CREATOR Confetti Cuts die sets.
For my final project today, I used the LOVE YOU MOST set along with the PATTERNED HEARTS set to create this card...
Do you spy the stitched heart that was cut from the card above?  It was just sitting there on my desk begging to be layered with the FLAMINGO heart cut and layered with a dotty heart (also stamped in FLAMINGO ink) and the "love you" sentiment (yep, stamped in FLAMINGO ink).
The strips of hearts (in PIGGY BANK and SALSA) are from the XOXO HEARTS Confetti Cuts die set and the bottom layer is cut from SALSA cartstock with the SMALL DIAMOND TILES COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts and is layered with PIGGY BANK cardstock.
. . . . .
Ok, it's time for me to send you on your way to see what the fabulous ladies of the Confetti Crew & Friends have to share with you today.  Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way!

'FETTI FRIEND INTRODUCTION

Greetings, 'Fetti Fans!
Our new release is just around the corner (January 8th!) and today is one of my favorite pre-release days.  Today we get to introduce you to the 2 'Fetti Friends (guest designers) that will be joining us for the next couple of months.
Hey crafty friends! My name is Ashley Tucker and I live in Upstate New York with my husband and two children (ages 1 and 10!) I am a huge nerd and in my free time (when I am not crafting) I enjoy playing video games, playing board games, and reading. I have always been interested in art and design ever since I was little. I am a Graphic Designer and I opened a photography business in 2010. My photography and the birth of my son led me to start scrapbooking in 2012. It wasn't long after that I realized my passion for card making! I started a YouTube channel in February of 2018. I am so happy to be a part of this amazing community and I am looking forward to creating with you for the next two months!
. . . . .
My name is Lindsay and I've been sharing my cards on social media for a little over a year now. I love playing with new supplies and I am so excited to be guest designing for Reverse Confetti this month. I like to try different card making styles and techniques so you should see a variety of cards from me. I've recently moved to Oregon with my husband and our dog, so outside of card making we have been busy exploring what the Pacific Northwest has to offer for traveling and hiking.

CONFETTI CAMERA WITH AMY ROHL

Hi, 'Fetti Fans! It's Amy here today with another round of Confetti Camera - For A Friend. I've gone with a masculine gift set for my feature because we've all got those men in our lives that we love and want to smell good, right?
 
I've created two tags using the ever so adorable gnome set, Holiday Gnomes, along with Bags & Tags Creator Confetti Cuts. I thought the pinked edge of this set of dies was a bit more masculine than the Scalloped Bags & Tags set.
 
To make the bottle tag, I scored about 2 inches from the straight edge of the tag, opposite the pinked edge, and then die cut a circle for the bottle head to poke through. I then added my Copic colored gnome and a sentiment from Tie-rific. I think the combo is hilarious.
 
The house tag is made with more of the dies from Holiday Gnomes and Bags & Tags Creator Confetti Cuts, along with patterned paper from the Winter Solstice 6x6 pad which is perfect for masculine themed creations.
 
Here's a final look at the tags, super simple and a fun way to dress up a little gifty for your man. Thanks so much for stopping by for this week's Confetti Camera!
~Amy

Greetings! Heather here today to share a uniquely shaped long and thin card! This shape allows you to have fun with some unique scene building opportunities - AND, it fits in a legal size envelope! So you're even able to pop it in the mail if you wish!

Here is this week's video detailing my process:


I give the dimensions in my video - but you basically want to trim your white cardstock to 9" by 7 1/2", then score it in half at 3 3/4" to create the cardbase. Then it's just building your scene!
I used Furever Friends to create this fun scene - the length of the card accentuates the distance between these furry friends as the kitty uses her toy mouse to send a little bone over as a gift to her dog buddy! A bit of Iced Aqua distress ink provides the perfect backdrop to ground these images!


Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

CONFETTI CAMERA WITH OLGA

Hello, dear friends! Olga is here today with my Confetti Camera post. This months we're focusing on friendship. And I think, that December is the most friendship month of the year! Because this month is full of warm meetings with family and friends. We give gifts and send a huge amount of mail and delight each other. Therefore, today the focus on the packaging cute small gifts for friends. 

 

 

 

I made this packaging using our new Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator Confetti Cuts. Using this set you can create an incredible number of cute bags and labels, it is very convenient. This can be done especially quickly with our paper, as I did. In addition to this, I also used Christmas Circles stamp set with very cute sentiments. 

Everything turned out very quickly, and looks incredibly festive!

I think my friends are gonna love it!

Hello! Heather here today to share some simple and fun little Christmas Note Cards with you - perfect for turning into a coupon to tuck into a stocking by writing a simple little gift on there (i.e. a free hug, a batch of cookies, night off from chores, etc...) - something we have loved doing as a family over the years! Or, you could tuck then into a lunchbox for those last few days of school before the holiday break, or use as gift tags as you wrap up those presents to tuck under the tree! As you can see - lots of possibilities! And also a great way to use some of those Christmas stamp sets one last time before tucking them away for next year!


Here is this week's video detailing my process:



I used Kindness Cards Confetti Cuts to cut out my rainbow of cards - using the coordinating colors of dye ink to match each color of cardstock I used - Flamingo, Tangerine, Sunshine, Lime Green, Iced Aqua, and Grape Soda.



I used Kindness Cards Stamp Set for the dotted lines on each one, and a different stamp set for each image and sentiment - Sweet Holiday, Christmas Bear, Holiday Gnomes, Bearing Gifts, Cool Friend, and Christmas Cheer!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

CONFETTI CAMERA WITH TRICIA

By Reverse Confetti

Hello!   I am up this week on the Confetti Camera sharing with you a unique card and gift idea for the holidays that you can share with a friend.   Around the holidays, I am always looking or ways to add my crafty touch to my holiday gifts.   Tags are the best way to add that little something to a present.   So I thought I would make a set of tags in a cute little bag to share with a friend.  
 
 
 
 
 
First up, I made a card using the Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator.   Instead of the card opening up with a fold, the greeting can be placed on the pull out Grid Stitched Tag or you could attach a gift card to the pull out and write your message on the back of the card.    I die cut two pieces of Iced Aqua card stock with the Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator and then ran one of the pieces back with my die machine using the Criss Cross Cover Panel to emboss it onto the cut card stock.   I did this for both the card and the bag for my tags.   
 
 
 
 
 
The pull out is made with the new Grid Stitched Tag and die cut from Polar White card stock.  I just added a ribbon and a bell to the top.   
 
 
 
 
I stamped and die cut the images from Holiday Gnomes using Premier Polar White card stock.   I also die cut and stamped some trees onto some green patterned papers from Under the Umbrella and Cheerful & Kind paper pads.   I die cut more Polar White card stock with the Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator Confetti Cut and then die cut a small piece with the border die from Nuts about You to create my snow banks on both the bag and card.    
 
 
 
 
 
 
I stamped several tags out with the Christmas Circles stamp set and then die cut some Iced Aqua, Salsa and Polar White card stock with the tag die.    I added some twine to the package and then stapled it closed and stapled to the back of the bag.  I closed up the bag with a cute red clip and added a bow.   I thought about adding some sequins but I did not want to cover up the embossing.   It adds texture to the plain card stock.  But I did add a little sparkle with my glitter pen to the star and the heart.   
 
 
 
 
 
 
  Happy Holidays to all!   I hope you have a wonderful holiday!  
 
Supplies: 
Stamps:  Holiday Gnomes, Christmas Circles
Confetti Cuts:  Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator, Nuts About You, Grid Stitched Tag, Criss Cross Cover Panel 
Papers:  Premier Polar White, Iced Aqua, Salsa, Midnight, Under the Umbrella paper pad, Cheerful & Kind paper pad
Inks: Salsa, Iced Aqua

Good morning! Heather here today to share some fun sparkly Christmas tags - just in time for packaging up those Christmas gifts and goodies and making them sparkly and fun!


Here is this week's video detailing my process:



I used lots of different Confetti Cuts for these - mixing together some older and newer ones.

The base of the die is from Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts, die cut from Stone Cardstock.

I used Stitched Rays Cover Panel to add the texture to the tag, and Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts to die cut the sparkly snowflakes.

The sentiment from Triangle Trees is stamped on a thin strip of Iced Aqua Cardstock. A bit of glitter washi tape and a jewel for the center of the snowflakes finishes these off!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
