WEEK IN REVERSE

Hello and TGIF, ‘Fetti Fans!

I am definitely looking forward to this weekend!  The weather is supposed to be beautiful and I am excited to spend some quality time outside with the littles and my hubby.  I think I’ve convinced them to help me wash/clean out my car.  We’ll see if they are anywhere to be found when it comes time for that, though!

It’s a super special weekend at Reverse Confetti, too!  Sunday is our (monthly) blog hop and I promise you do not want to miss it!

WEEK IN REVERSE

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Friday (and Super Bowl weekend).

Do you have fun plans for the game?  I have to admit, we’re going to be duds and just hang out at home.  I’m more interested in the commercials than the teams playing this year.  I guess that’s just about every year though, but sometimes cheering occurs in between the commercials, too.  My (8 year old) daughter is excited to see Katy Perry perform at half-time.  I’m crossing my fingers for no wardrobe malfunctions, etc!

. . . . .

It’s Friday, so you know what that means…

. . . . .

We’re Hoppin’!

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.

Note, there is a full list of hoppers at the bottom of this post in case there are any breaks along the way.

We’ve had such a fabulous response to our brand new Quick Card Panels!  They’re perfectly sized for your A2 cards, but can be cut down and used in many other ways.  These are limited edition, so grab them while you can…

I have several new projects to share with you using these new products.  I just couldn’t stop playing!

My first card features 2 large heart images from the playful and sweet new HEART TO HEART stamp set, as well as the HEART TO HEART Confetti Cuts dies, PRETTY PANELS: BIG CHEVRON Confetti Cuts die and DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set (rounded rectangle)…

LoveToLove1

The PRETTY PANELS: BIG CHEVRON Confetti Cuts die is layered with the rounded rectangle from CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts (made to play together).  Detail shot…

This next card uses the new PUPPY LOVE stamp set, PUPPY LOVE Confetti Cuts dies, HAPPY HEART DAY Quick Card Panels and SQUARE TAG Confetti Cuts die (and, previously released, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die)…

PuppyLove2_1

Detail shot (isn’t she just too cute!?!)…

. . . . .

Next up is a project I created using the new sets HERE’S THE STORY, RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW, as well as the new DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set (and, previously released, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set)…

Frame1

This is frame that I picked up from a bin at Michaels.  It’s been sitting in my “do something with this” stash (everyone has one of these, right?).  I took out the glass so that I could make my project more dimensional.  I was able to make it a shadowbox(ish) by putting in the mat (covered with a piece of patterned paper cut to match) and then pressing down the tabs on the back to secure it.  I then added the back of the frame on top of the tabs that were pressed down and secured to frame with tape.  I was fortunate that the back of the frame sat on top on the tabs and was flush with the frame base.

Detail shots…

Frame3

Sewn hearts (cut from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts) and sentiment from HERE’S THE STORY

Frame2

. . . . .

This card uses the new LOVE BLOOMS stamps and LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts die set.  I love how clean it looks and how the flowers pop off the white background…

LoveBlooms2

Detail shot of the heat embossed sentiment (on circle cut from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts) and florals…

. . . . .

One more project and then I am sending you on your way to see all of the other Confetti Crew creations.

This final project features the new SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS stamp set and SQUARE TAG in a way that is perfect for a guy’s Valentine or for anytime you want to give someone a sweet pat on the back…

YouRock1

I “popped” Pop Rocks into a chevron glassine bag and paired it with an embellished SQUARE TAG Confetti Cuts die (flag-ended piece from TAG ME Confetti Cuts and stars from OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts) and attached it with a mini clothespin.  Detail shot…

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: NEW STAMPS, NEW CONFETTI CUTS & A BRAND NEW PRODUCT

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

We are kicking off the new year with new stamps, new Confetti Cuts dies and a BRAND NEW PRODUCT!

It’s the first day of sneak peeks, or as we like to call it: THE COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!  On January 8th we are releasing 6 new stamp sets, 8 new Confetti Cuts (we know you love your dies!) and the new QUICK CARD PANELS!

ReadyForConfetti

. . . . .

Just a note…all of our releases will happen on the 8th of the month…just not every month.  We will release new product every other month.  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 (starting at 9am EST today).  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 on January 7th 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.

. . . . .

You know what to do now…grab that cuppa, sit back and enjoy all the wonderful inspiration that the Confetti Crew has put together using products from this fabulous release!

. . . . .

I wear a lot of hats…first and foremost, the Mom and Wife hats. Then, of course, just about every single one that comes with owning/running a business.  A lot of times, I wear all of these all at once which makes it a little difficult to carve out a lot of time to create.  That is always something that is in back of my mind when I design products for Reverse Confetti.  It’s important to me that our products are not only high quality and on trend, but also easy to use.  As so many of you have noted, our products work well together and make paper crafting and card making FUN and EASY!  We’ve added one more product to make creating FUNNER (not a word, I know) and EASIER (read: saves time when creating)!

I’m so happy to introduce to you our new HAPPY HEART DAY QUICK CARD PANELS…

QCPJan15ProductGraphic

 QUICK CARD PANELS are limited edition premium heavyweight cardstock panels measuring 3.25″ x 4.5″.  Each package contains 2 of each 8 printed design.  They are designed for A2 card making, but you can easily use them on all of your paper crafting projects!  We will have a new set of QUICK CARD PANELS with each release. Grab them while you can, because once they’re gone, they’re gone!

You’ll see the new limited edition QUICK CARD PANELS used on a variety of projects from the Confetti Crew.  We can’t wait to see how you will use them on your creations!

. . . . .

Before I get to my projects using these awesome QUICK CARD PANELS, let’s reveal our first new set…

PUPPY LOVE

PuppyLoveProductGraphic

Puppy Love is the first set in a new line by UK artist, Dawn Machell.  We are so excited about these cute characters!

In addition, there are coordinating PUPPY LOVE Confetti Cuts dies…

PuppyLoveCCProductGraphic

This card uses both the new HAPPY HEART DAY QUICK CARD PANELS along with new PUPPY LOVE stamp set and Confetti Cuts dies…

PuppyLove1

On this card I used the stripe frame panel to frame in the pups and the heart on top was the perfect touch!

Detail shot…

I just *ADORE* these pooches!  Here’s a cute tag I made using them along with (previously released) TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die…

Aren’t they so sweet!?!

. . . . .

This next card features the new HAPPY HEART QUICK CARD PANELS, along with the “Happy Valentine’s Day” sentiment from PUPPY LOVE

QCPCard

QUICK CARDS PANELS are the perfect size to use on A2 cards and they are fun and easy to layer, as well!  Here I cut down the main image QUICK CARD PANEL and layered it with the one I have centered and stamped.

In addition to the new HAPPY HEART DAY QUICK CARD PANELS and PUPPY LOVE stamps and Confetti Cuts, there’s more to reveal today!

Introducing HEART TO HEART stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts dies…

HeartToHeartProductGraphic

HeartToHeartCCProductGraphic

I love the HEART TO HEART set because it is so versatile.  It’s easy to go big and bold or to create something clean and simple with a fabulous focal panel.  Here I took the latter of those design themes to create this card…

GoldLove2

I really wanted the gold heart to take center stage on this card, so I die cut several of the hearts in white and layered them on a white cardstock panel.  I then stamped the “love” heart in Delicata Gold, die cut it and popped it up.  The sequins weren’t actually part of the original design plan, but when I accidentally smudged black ink on a completed card and didn’t want to start over they ended up as the perfect pairing to the gold heart.

GoldLoveDetail

. . . . .

Now for one that’s a little bigger and bolder…

Notice anything else you haven’t seen before?

The ampersand is part of a new Confetti Cuts die set that I will be revealing here tomorrow.

However, I will show you one (of 3) of the new PRETTY PANELS today.
