NEW RELEASE HOP & MORE!

Hello 'Fetti Fans...
Today is a VERY SPECIAL DAY for a couple of reasons:
1) It's RELEASE DAY here at Reverse Confetti

 

 

2) We are part of the Layton's Legacy Hop with Lea Lawson and friends (begins at 7am CST).

 

. . . . .

If this were any other day, I might put these post these 2 events separately, but I felt that it was best to keep them together today.  That being said, this is a bit of a long post as it contains info to both events.

. . . . .
First, let's recap this release...

PAPER BLISS 6x6 PAD

 . . . . .

STAMPS

 

 

 

 

. . . . .

CONFETTI CUTS

 

 

 

 

 

 

. . . . .

I'm so honored that Lea asked Reverse Confetti to be part of the Layton's Legacy hop.  I met Lea at AFCI this January and she shared more of her story with me and showed me pics of Layton.  Her face beamed with pride and joy over this little boy that brought so much joy to their lives during his short time here on Earth.  I have no doubt that he watches over her and her husband every day.  If you haven't stopped at her blog yet, she is the first stop on the Layton's Legacy hop (see InLinkz at the end of this post)

Lea if you are reading this, know that you and your family, here and in Heaven, are so very loved!

Here is the mood board that was provided as inspiration for today's hop project...

 

My card, using the new MY TRIBE stamp set...

 

The base of this card is our PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  I used the POINTED OUT Stencil with white embossing paste on a panel cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE.  I added a strip of STONE cardstock on the right side and mounted it on the card base with dimensional adhesive.

The main image panel is LEAD cardstock stamped with the MY TRIBE sentiment in MIDNIGHT INK.  Behind the sentiment panel are triangles cut from the TALL TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts die set along with an ICED AQUA strip stamped with the SO STRIPEY stamp set, also in ICED AQUA.

 

I'm not going to lie. 
I wanted this card to be perfect -
just like Layton. 
It took a few tries to get it just the way I wanted and in the end I am so pleased with how it turned out.
I'm not the only one that created in the spirit of Layton today.  There are so many companies that came together and are offering prizes for your participation and donations.  See a full link list of hop participants at the end of this post.

MOON MEN

Coordinating Confetti Cuts
. . . . .
I had fun creating this card featuring the new MOON MEN set, along with my first ever galaxy background...
This scene was a lot of fun to create and I said above that this was my first galaxy background.  That is partially true.  I actually made 2 others on the same day but ended up messing up each of those after they were complete (and pretty!).  Please tell me I'm not the only one!!
Here's a detail shot of the galaxy background (created with Distress Inks) with the stars stamped in white pigment ink on top (other splotches created with water)...
The moon is cut with the CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set from STONE cardstock.  I used the LOTSA DOTS Stencil and STONE in to create the pattern on the moon.
Each of the elements is popped up on dimensional adhesive.  I wish I would have thought to put the floating moon man on a bobble!!  Next time, for sure!
. . . . .
Check out the MOON MEN (and more!) creations that the Confetti Crew is sharing today!

Hello, 'Fetti Fans!
It's OUR 5th BIRTHDAY!  I can't believe how time has flown by and we're already celebrating this wondrous occasion!  From what started as 4 stamp sets stacked up in my dining room to now having a stock room of stamps, Confetti Cuts dies, ink and paper products...it's been an amazing adventure (I think I say that every year!).  Of course, we wouldn't be here without YOU...the best customers ('Fetti Fans!) in the galaxy!  Thank you for all of your support over the past 5 years!  There are no words to express my sincerest gratitude that I have for being at this point.  Big squishy hugs to everyone!
Here's a look at the release schedule...

Yesterday we introduced the new PAPER BLISS 6x6 pad.  One of our dear 'Fetti Fans, Kristie Marcotte shared THIS VIDEO using the pad.  Check it out!  And, THANK YOU, Kristie for putting all those cards and video together!
Here's a look at that paper pad once again...
. . . . .
We continue our birthday celebration with the introduction of 2 new stamp sets and more fabulous Confetti Cuts today!
Have you heard the saying, "Find Your Tribe and Love Them Hard?"  That's the spirit behind this new set...

MY TRIBE

Before I get to my cards using this heartfelt set, I have another introduction for you...

BLOCKED OUT SQUARE PANEL

This 4.25" square panel is so much fun to play with.  It adds such a fun bit of detail and dimension!
My first card pairs the MY TRIBE and BLOCKED OUT SQUARE PANEL Confetti Cuts, along with the recently released TALL BLOOMS set...
I started with a 4.25" square card base and then added a layer of STONE cardstock.  From there, I added the BLOCKED OUT SQUARE PANEL cut and frame cut from LEAD cardstock with the new STITCHED SQUARES Confetti Cuts.
The flowers are stamped with MIDNIGHT ink on our CLOUD WHITE cardstock and watercolored and then cut with the coordinating die set.
. . . . .
My next card also features the new MY TRIBE stamp set with one of our floral sets, but this one has a completely different "feel" to it!
This time I combined the MY TRIBE set with the BLOOMS 'N BUDS stamp set.  I stamped the floral images in a combination of FLAMINGO, BRICK, ICED AQUA, BLUEBERRY and LIME GREEN ink on a panel that I then ran through the STITCHED RAYS Confetti Cuts die.
I absolutely love this sentiment and know exactly who I will be sending this card to!
The panels are matted with STORMY cardstock.  As a finishing touch, I added a few sequins for a little bling.
. . . . .
 Our next introduction today is to a very unique stamp set that creates beautiful (and easy!) cards...

PATTERN BLOCKS

This set features two patterned squares along with two scripty sentiments.  I think you'll love all the things you can do with this set!
Before I get to my first card with this set, I have one more introduction...

DIAMOND STRIPE SQUARE

I'm on a square panel kick over here and, from what I can tell, you guys are loving it, too!  This is a 4.25" square.  Why 4.25"?  Because you can still put a 4.25" square card in an A2 envelope!
Here's my card using a combo of PATTERN BLOCKS and the DIAMOND STRIPE SQUARE Confetti Cuts (and the new STITCHED SQUARES Confetti Cuts)...
I used the DIAMOND STRIPE SQUARE Confetti Cuts (in MIDNIGHT cardstock) under the STITCHED SQUARES Confetti Cuts frame and stamped herringbone image from the PATTERN BLOCKS stamp set.  The sentiment was added as a flag and then I embellished with cuts of the LEAFY Confetti Cuts die set in LIME GREEN and AVOCADO.
As a finishing touch, I added aqua enamel dots.
. . . . .
My second card features a similar color palette, as I was very drawn to this combination this past week!
I used the floral square from the PATTERN BLOCKS stamp set, stamped 2 times on ICED AQUA cardstock and heat embossed in white.
I only colored in the leaves with Copic markers.  I love the pop of green here.
The sentiment is stamped in MIDNIGHT and then matted with NAVY cardstock and attached across the card (mainly to hide the seam of the patterns).
. . . . .

It's time for me to send you on your way once again.  Enjoy all the Confetti Crew has put together for today using these fabulous new products!

You know the drill, 'Fetti Fans!  Grab that cuppa, sit back and enjoy the first day of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!
This release contains 5 new stamp sets, 7 new Confetti Cuts die sets and a new 6x6 paper pad.  First up in our introductions is the new 6x6 paper pad...

PAPER BLISS

Coordinating Confetti Colors:  Navy, Seafoam, Mint, Tangerine, Stone, Flamingo and Piggy Bank
As noted above, it's our birthday, so what better way to start off the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI today than with some new birthday themed products!

HEY, SUGAR

Coordinating Confetti Cuts
Before I get to my cards using the new HEY, SUGAR set I have another introduction.  I think you are going to love these stand alone Confetti Cuts dies!

STITCHED SQUARES

This is a set of 4 square dies where the outer edge of each is a cut line.  They can be used individually to cut stitched panels or use them together to create frames, like on this card...
This 4.25" square card features the donuts and sentiment from HEY, SUGAR.  I stamped the donuts in STONE ink and then colored them with Copics.
The stitched frame was created by cutting the the largest and 2nd largest squares together.
. . . . .
Before I get to my next card, I have another fun introduction!

POLKA PANEL

My next card features the POLKA PANEL Confetti Cuts cut in half diagonally along with the popsicles and sentiment from HEY, SUGAR...
Each of the popsicles is colored with Copic markers and topped off with some Diamond Stickles (holy cow it's been a long time since I used those!).  I love the texture that the white on white POLKA PANEL gives.
. . . . .
Our next introduction could be dubbed the quintessential birthday sentiment set...well, in my humble opinion, at least!

BIRTHDAY WISHES

It pairs up perfectly with this new Confetti Cuts die set...

CANDLES

Here's my first card, combining these two new products (and the PAPER BLISS 6x6 pad)...
This fun Confetti Cuts die cuts 5 candles from any panel or card front all at once.  You can add flame and candle color to the back side or fill the negative spaces with colored cardstock for detail.
Here I added gold glitter paper behind for the flames...
For the candle colors, I used LIME, BUTTERCUP, FLAMINGO, ICED AQUA and RC AQUA cardstock.  I added the sentiment from the new BIRTHDAY WISHES set on a panel cut and popped on top...
. . . . .
My next card uses a color combo that I can't seem to stop using...I just love it and am totally drawn to this combo!
I cut the "xoxo" from the XOXO HEARTS Confetti Cuts die set from NAVY, ICED AQUA and LIME GREEN cardstock.
I then added the sentiment from BIRTHDAY WISHES popped up on top of a NAVY cardstock strip that "sets off" the sentiment.
. . . . .

Ok, enough of me and off you go to see what incredible creations that the Confetti Crew have put together.  Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win at each stop along the way!

INTRODUCING OUR 'FETTI FRIENDS
Hello 'Fetti Fans!
Our 5th Birthday Release is just around the corner and we are busy making preparations for the celebration!  There is already a "Win It Before You Can Buy It" promo happening over on our Facebook page.  After you're finished here today, go check it out!
I'm happy to announce the 'Fetti Friends that will be joining us for May and June...
Hi! I’m Carly Tee Minner and I craft so much! I am lucky enough to have a crafty day job at a Ellen Hutson LLC so I actually have to think about stamps, dies & sequins all day! And don’t worry, I know how lucky I am! When I’m not making cards, I’m probably snacking on chocolate-covered gummy bears and hanging out with my husband & pup. I’m thrilled and honored to be Reverse Confetti’s guest!
Hi there! I'm Tatiana from Tatiana Craft And Art and I’m so excited to be guesting at Reverse Confetti blog as a ‘Fetti Friend! I live in sunny Rome with my hubby, stepson and two sweet kitties. I always loved everything handmade and crafty related and tried all kinds of hobbies from jewelry making to crocheting until I discovered and felt in love with a magical world of paper crafting. Cardmaking and coloring became my relaxing getaway. I like getting inky, experimenting, stretching my supplies, learning new techniques and coloring with any medium, especially cat images which I often make look like my kitties.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

We have a wonderful VIDEO EDITION of WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS for you today!

Are you asking “what exactly is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS?”  It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  It’s us taking a closer look at how something is created, etc.  A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between.

 . . . . .

Good morning! Heather here to share a fun dimensional Basketweave Background that I created with a Confetti Cut Cover Panel! Come watch the video below to see how it came together!

Here is a closer look at each card:

 

See that lovely texture?

 

I think this would be super fun to use different color cardstocks on as well! White is a classic simple look – but whether monochromatic, or in a rainbow of color – there are so many possibilities!

 

I used Vertical Stripes Cover Panel to create the background. The flowers are from Tall Blooms and die cut with the coordinating Tall Blooms Confetti Cuts. Sentiments from Simply Sentiments are heat embossed on circles of Lead Cardstock (sorry – in the video I said Smoke – ignore me!) that were die cut using Circles ‘n Scallops!

 

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
