I have a lot to share with you today, as I just couldn’t put these new sets and dies down!

My first project today features the new DONUT YOU KNOW stamp set and DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts die set.  Can I just say that I LOVE that donuts are trending!!?

For the icing on this donut, I used white t-shirt paint, clear glass glitter and the “regular” sprinkles from the DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts die set…

My second project today features the new NORTH POLE WISHES stamps and NORTH POLE WISHES Confetti Cuts on a bag cut with the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  This was such a fun and easy project to make.  I can’t wait to make a few more for Christmas packaging…perfect for gift cards and small sweet treats!

The snow drift on the bottom is cut with with DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts die and topped with Diamond Stickles and flaky glitter.  For a little bit of Christmas flair, I added the red and green (layered with white) garland cut from the new CIRCLE GARLAND Confetti Cuts die…

Marley is colored with Copics and paper pieced. The ribbon on the gift is colored with a gold Wink of Stella pen…

One more project before I send you on your way to see all of the fun projects put together by the Confetti Crew and ‘Fetti Friend!

This last project features a tag cut from the (previously released) TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die set and embellised with a sentiment from the new SEASONAL SENTIMENTS stamp set and a layered tree cut from the new BRANCH OUT Confetti Cuts die set.  As you will recall from yesterday’s post, I was having a lot of fun with gold cardstock and I kept that going on this tag by using it with the trunk/branches of the tree.  It’s the perfect bling-y detail for this tag!

PeaceLoveJoyTag1

Heart cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

The black and white striped ribbon is tied off with double bows of red and green linen thread to match the tree and heart.

CONFETTI CAMERA

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Merry Halloween Eve…or as I’ve seen it called Elsaween.  Just how many Elsa costumes will we be seeing tomorrow?  I’m glad that my kids did not go the Frozen  route (I’m Frozened out!) and will be dressing up as a pirate and a vampire.  Yes, my 4 year old is going to be a vampire…”with bloooood,” as he says.  Needless to say, it should be interesting.  Let’s see if I can remember to take pictures!

. . . . .

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, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from an ANYTHING BUT A CARD project from each of our designers. A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such on Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will answer the same set of questions/show a tip 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.

Today on Confetti Camera we have the very kindhearted and over the top talented, AMY SHEFFER

AmySIntroPic

. . . . .

Hi everyone, Amy here today for this week’s Confetti Camera installment. Today, I’ve created a gift for a very dear friend who is undergoing chemo treatments for breast cancer. She is nearing the end of her eighteen treatments, and I thought I’d give her a way to count down the very last of these treatments and get to the finish line.

 The outer packaging is a matchbook-style wrap, with the bound side held together with a binder clip.

chemocountdown1

For the front label, I used the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, topped with a circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts. The sentiment is made up of the word “count” from COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, plus the word “chemo” and “down,” which were done by combining individual letters in the same font from a whole bunch of different sets. I added in some die-cuts for extra design elements: DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts, PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts , and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts.

chemocountdown3

 On the inside are three tiny paper gift sacks, one for each chemo treatment that’s left. The outsides of the each bag are numbered, and the inside has a motivational tag (plus a Ghirardelli chocolate square).

chemocountdown2

The #3 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: DIAGONAL STRIPE Confetti Cuts , ARROW Confetti Cuts and LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts. The tag inside has a motivational sentiment from ALL ABOUT YOU.

 The #2 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: CHEVRON Confetti Cuts and TAG ME Confetti Cuts. The sentiment on the inside tag was cut on my Silhouette.

 The #1 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts , OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts, and TAG ME Confetti Cuts. The tag inside uses the PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts again, as well as a sentiment from WINNING and a star accent from OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts.

One last view, from the side:

chemocountdown4

This same idea could easily be repurposed for any type of countdown, or simply used as a mini-album for photos, a collection of favorite quotes, funny kid sayings, even a collection of gift cards for a teacher or coach.

WEEK IN REVERSE

TGIF!

Ever have on of those weeks?  Yep, it’s been one of those.  I realized yesterday that I haven’t had a chance to create anything and today, I am setting aside some time to do just that.  I have a feeling my perspective on things might just be a little sunnier after that happens (and during, too).  What have you been up to creatively this week?  Have you had a chance to play along in this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY?  If not, check it out HERE and play along for a fun chance to win.

. . . . .

Being that it is Friday, it is time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to lately.

SEPTEMBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy September!

Our September release is just around the corner…mark your calendars, as our sneak peeks begin on Friday!

NewReleaseSept

. . . . .

But, before we can get to the excitement of our new release (that is chock full of a bunch of new stamps and Confetti Cuts) we have a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY (SFYTT) today…

Sept14

The Confetti Crew has whipped up some fabulous inspiration, but let’s go over the details of this challenge first…

There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.

The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 14th. The SFYTT button is  posted on the sidebar.  Click on it to be taken to the current SFYTT post and link list.

Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!

You may enter as many times as you wish.

There will be a winner each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 15th of each month.

. . . . .

Ready to have fun with this sketch?

You can flip it, embellish it and make it your own.  We’re all looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
