Jen here and I am excited to be back from CHA with a renewed creative energy that will sure translate into more wonderful things for Reverse Confetti. We have been working tirelessly to get all of the orders from the release out the door. Keep an eye on those mailboxes, as your new RC goodies should be there very soon…if not already!
This is the final day for this round of Confetti Camera. A new round begins in just a couple of weeks. We hope that you have enjoyed the “Set ’em Up” projects that the fabulous Confetti Crew designers have shared with you.
A little bit about Confetti Camera…
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 each of our designers will be coming up with a SET of something. You’ll see gift sets, card sets, pocket scrapping sets and much more this time around.
A couple of things to note:
1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Sketch for You to Try 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). To see previous Confetti Camera post, simply click on “Confetti Camera” under the categories link on our sidebar.

In the spotlight today is the lovely and talented, Heather Pulvirenti…
Hi ‘Fetti Fans! Heather P. here today with my take on the “Set ’em Up” theme. For my project today, I’ve created two mini-sets of Project Life cards using most of the items from January’s release, as well as some of my favorite go-to dies from prior releases.
To create my cards, I started by die cutting all of the QCPs from both sets with the large rectangle die from the Documented Confetti Cuts. Once that was done, I started cutting the elements to use on the first set of cards:
The penguin, hat and hearts were first stamped in Versafine ink onto watercolor card stock, then heat set with clear embossing powder. I then colored the images with watercolor markers and set them aside to dry. While I was waiting for the images to dry, I assembled the first set of cards as shown. Once the images were dry, they were cut out with their coordinating Confetti Cuts and attached to the gray card front.
I then die cut the elements to use on the second set of cards:
The penguin, hat, marshmallow and fire were first stamped in Versafine ink onto watercolor card stock, then heat set with clear embossing powder. I then colored the images with watercolor markers and set them aside to dry. While I was waiting for the images to dry, I assembled the second set of cards as shown. Once the images were dry, they were cut out with their coordinating Confetti Cuts and attached to the pink card front.
Well, that wraps it up for me today, but be sure to come back tomorrow for more Reverse Confetti inspiration!
Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to our second day of CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS!
Today, we are filling you up with inspirational GIFT GIVING ideas!
. . . . .
I think that we can all relate to food related gifts when it comes to the holidays. I know that I seem to both give and receive plenty of them, and that is why I chose to do a food related item for our GIFT GIVING segment of CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS.
I love to bake and give cookies and breads and that is where this idea started. However, I do have to admit that I ran a little short on time and had to actually buy the loaf of bread that is featured below. It is “fresh baked,” just not by yours truly…
I wrapped the bread (baked at a local bakery) in parchment paper. I had planned to tape down the edges of the parchment paper and simply put the wrap around it. Well, I learned something…nothing sticks to parchment paper. I tried 5 different tapes before throwing my hands in the air in need of having to coming up with plan B to keep the parchment paper actually on the bread. This problem lead to a great (in my humble opinion) design solution…CAPPUCCINO TWINE wrapped around the the loaf of bread 3 times. After the twine (and the parchment paper) were securely in place, I added the belly band…
The belly band consist of a few different pieces:
-a kraft strip of cardstock that is run through the paper crimper (again, yes, I still own one of those!)
-a cream strip of cardstock that is stamped repeatedly with the “Fresh Baked” sentiment from the new “WITH LOVE” stamp set
-a large wreath created from 2 cuts of the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set
-an embellishment consisting of the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set, a button tied off with CAPPUCCINO TWINE and jingle bells and the “with love” sentiment from the WITH LOVE stamp set
Whether you are baking or buying your bread/treats this year, this is a fun and easy way to dress up the packaging and make it more personal.
. . . . .
Of course, we have even more inspiration waiting for you!
The clouds are double layered. The top layer is white and I went ahead and added some flock to them. Who doesn’t love fluff white clouds? I matted them with aqua clouds. To tie in the aqua color with the rest of the card, I added the aqua ribbon to the top. As you can see, the sun is also double layered and the heart on top is from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.
As a finishing touch, I added the sequins. It’s “funny”…I have 14 million (slight exaggeration) sequin colors and I reach for the clear ones…every.single.time. Am I the only one?
You’ll get more sketch and Reverse Confetti inspiration from these gals today…
Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the NEW RELEASE BLOG HOP!
We are excited to announce that all 5 stamp sets, 6 Confetti Cut die sets and the new limited edition Quick Card Panels are now in the store!
. . . . .
To celebrate the new release, the Confetti Crew has put together a fabulous hop with a ton of “Confetti Creativity” using the new stamps, Confetti Cuts dies and Quick Card Panels (QCPs).
Note, there is a full list of hoppers at the bottom of this post in case there are any breaks along the way.
. . . . .
The new release…
Let’s Celebrate QUICK CARD PANELS
. . . . .
I just love our birthday release! It’s been a blast to play with and I know that I will find myself reaching for these products over and over again.
My first project that I have to share with you uses the CIRCLE SENTIMENTS, the coordinating SCALLOPED CIRCLE and STAR GARLAND Confetti Cuts dies…
I added the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER across the card to tie in the green of the stamped sentiment.
The STAR GARLAND Confetti Cuts was used as a white on white detail on the circle (cut from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set). It’s such a subtle detail, but I love what it brings to this card.
. . . . .
My second card today also features the new CIRCLE SENTIMENTS stamp set along with the new limited edition LET’S CELEBRATE Quick Card Panels and STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts dies…
This card literally came together in about 5 minutes…gotta love quick and easy, yet still eye catching!
. . . . .
Can I just say that I absolutely LOVE the new PARTY HATS stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts die set!?
Here, I paired them with the new STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set, FANCY WORD COORDINATES stamps, GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND, LOVE NOTE (heart) and DOCUMENTED (rounded rectangle) Confetti Cuts dies.
I can’t stop creating fringe detail, either! If you missed the how-to on this, you can see it HERE on day one of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI.
. . . . .
I have one more project to share with you and this one may just be my favorite from this release. It’s actually the first project that I made for the sneak peeks/hop and I’m pretty pleased this was how I got my creative juices flowing.
*LOVE* this quote from the new GOD IS GOOD stamp set…
In addition to the new GOD IS GOOD stamp set, I also used the new STITCHED FLAG TRIO, PETALS ‘N POSIES and PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts and the DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOP Confetti Cuts dies.
This was originally created to go into a frame, but then I couldn’t find the frame that I was searching for so I went with sticking it on a card front and calling it done.
. . . . .
There is so much more “Confetti Creativity” to see today!
Check out what the Confetti Crew Design Team & ‘Fetti Friends have created…
