COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: Fancy Words

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s the third and final day of our COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!

All of the new products…5 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts die sets and the new *limited edition* Piña Colada Quick Card Panels… will be available in the store tonight at midnight EST.  We still have a couple of more product introductions to share with you today and don’t forget to get those comments in for a chance to win!

. . . . .

ConfettiCountdown

Just a note…all of our releases will happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month.  We generally release new product every other month.  This is a special release, as April is usually a non-release month for us. We’ll still be hopping on the 8th, whether there is a release or not.  Just remember, “Eight is Great!”

. . . . .

Don’t forget to leave a comment here and on each sneak peek post this week for a chance to win!

In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion.  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic pinned to the top of our feed…

NextRelease

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST **TODAY** will be randomly chosen to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Winners for both the blog comments and Facebook comments will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog as well as on Facebook.

. . . . .

As you may know, I love to mix and match my stamps and Confetti Cuts dies with each other.  With that concept in mind, I wanted to develop an all word/sentiment stamp and Confetti Cuts die combination.  These two products work fabulously together and, of course, play nicely with many of our other stamp and Confetti Cuts die sets.

Introducing…

FANCY WORDS

FancyWords

And…

FANCY WORD COORDINATES

FancyWordCoordinatesProductGraphic

. . . . .

My first card that I have to share with you today, features the new FANCY WORD Confetti Cuts and the coordinating stamp set, as well as, the new SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set (I told you this one wasn’t leaving my desk **wink**).

Shaker1

I created the shaker box using the medium and large rounded squares from the SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set and then added in some confetti die cuts (part of the die set) and mini sequins.  From there, I embellished the outside of the shaker box with the word “friend” from the new FANCY WORDS Confetti Cuts, a banner from the new LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts die set and a  heart from the (previously released, and very loved) LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

ShakerDetail

The stamped sentiment “i can always count on you” is stamped under the shaker box in VersaFine ink.  To “frame” the shaker box I added a strip of gray cardstock to both the top and bottom of the card base.

Shaker2

. . . . .

I just know that I am going to get a ton of use out of this “birthday” word and sentiment combination!

Birthday1

The white paint/black stripes Piña Colada QUICK CARD PANEL was the *perfect* backdrop for the banner created with the new LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts die set (stars from OH MY STARS).

Birthday3

I added the word “birthday” in mint green and then stamped the “let’s celebrate” sentiment right beneath it.

Birthday2

. . . . .

My third and final card today features the FANCY WORD Confetti Cuts dies and coordinating stamp set along with “stripes” made from the new COLOR ME HAPPY stamp set and (previously released) LOVE BLOOMS stamp and Confetti Cuts dies.

I love how this entire card came out…

Thanks1

This card really came together quite quickly, making it an “in the pocket” design that I’ll be holding onto for when I need a fast thank you (I know you’ve been there, too).  Of course, it will work for any of the sentiment combinations available with the FANCY WORDS Confetti Cuts dies and stamp set sentiment combinations.  Just switch out the colors and embellishments to personalize for your needs.

Thanks2

. . . . .

Enough of my stuff…it’s time to see what the fabulous Confetti Crew has come up with to share with you today using these great new products!

Just a reminder…all of the new goodies will be available tonight at midnight EST and we’ll be hopping tomorrow for one more dose of “Confetti Creativity” with all the new stuff.

SFYTT WINNER ANNOUNCED

Hello and Happy Saturday, ‘Fetti Fans!

So far, I’ve spent today picking paint colors for our kitchen and dining room.  The previous owners had chosen a baby poop green with a faux finish in the kitchen and I have just about had enough of it.  I guess I batted my eyelashes enough (or he’s just sick of me complaining about it) because Tony finally said “let’s do it.”  Needless to say, I’m happier than a pig in the paint color that is currently on the walls! *wink*

. . . . .

Thank you to everyone that played along in this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  As always, all of the entries were absolutely FABULOUS!  Congrats to our February winner…

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Tuesday!

Today is the LAST DAY of our 3 day Valentine’s Sale…

SaleGraphic

. . . . .

We know you love fast shipping (so do we!) and we are working hard to get all your orders out the door just as quickly as we can.

 I am glad that I was able to get some creative time in the studio over the past couple of weeks, as I don’t see any happening this week (but it’s still early in the week, so I can still hope for it).  I have March release goodies to play with and they are calling my name!!  Ok, that was a little bit of a tease…sorry! *wink*

 . . . . .

I’ve been playing around with different ink and mediums.  I had my color mists (mainly Heidi Swapp Color Shine, but there are a few others in there, too) and I got playing around and created this fun flowers…

GrowWithLove215_2

Each of the flowers was created my cutting a coffee filter (folder over a few times) with the flowers from the LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts die set.  I then, sprayed them with the color mists and allowed them to dry.  From there, I layered them and pushed a brad through the center and wrinkled/poofed up the layers to create flowers.  In the end, the centers were adorned with sequins and rhinestones and added to this card…

 GrowWithLove215

The main image panel is cut from the rounded rectangle die in the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set and then stamped with the horizontal stripes from the SO STRIPEY stamp set and a sentiment from the LOVE BLOOMS stamp set.  I layered the flowers with green linen thread and a gold and black flag ended panel cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.  Before added the main image panel to the card base, I flicked (instead of sprayed) gold color mist onto the base of the card.

One more shot…

GrowWithLove215_1

I can’t wait to make more of these.  So easy and fun and they really give this otherwise simple card quite the wow factor!
