OCTOBER SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

Happy October and hooray for fall, although it hardly feels like it is upon us here in North Texas.  October pretty much marks the turn of the seasons…and you never know if you’re going to freeze or sweat on Halloween.

If you’ve been watching the MAKE IT WITH ME MONDAY scopes (via Periscope), you’ve heard me mention that we are having an October release.  We generally release every other month, but we have bumped up our Holiday Release to October 8th this year.  There are new stamps, new Confetti Cuts dies, new Quick Card Panels and MORE!  Sneak peeks start Monday, but you can WIN IT BEFORE YOU CAN BUY IT over on Facebook starting at 8am CST today!

Oct8Release

 . . . . .

Being that it’s the first of the month, it is time to introduce a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

OCT15_SFYTT

Here are all the details you need to know…

Before I get to all the wonderful inspiration that the Confetti Crew came up with using this sketch, let’s go over the details…

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 29th. 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 30th of this month.

The Confetti Crew has been busy whipping up some fabulous inspirational cards!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Hump Day!

Time for WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!

What 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. Today, Confetti Crew member, Sarah Gough,

. . . . .

I’m about to be an Aunt for the first time, any day now in fact. While we wait for an overdue little miss to make an appearance, of course I’ve been shopping! And that means lovely tags on pretty baby bundles. Today I wanted to combine the FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts die with a larger tag base for a combo tag/card that can be filled out and sent on its way just as soon as the little sweetie arrives!

tagcard (1)

I’m using the FOLDED TAG SENTIMENTS stamp set and coordinating FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts along with the LOVE NOTE, TAG ME and TAG ME TOO  Confetti Cuts dies today.

tagcard (3)

I wanted the FOLDED TAG Confetti die to have the same design on both the front and the back, so I cut a second piece and simply trimmed along the score line.

tagcard (4)

This is a great way to cover up using a single sided paper for the tag, and gives a cohesive look. tagcard (2)

I’ve cut the TAG ME TOO Confetti Cuts die from designer paper, and layered with a vellum LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die cut. I love the way these two scalloped pieces look together.

tagcard (5)

To top the layered tags, I cut the long flag ended piece from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set, and curled it in my fingers before adhering it over the layered piece with glue dots. This stops it from creasing when you bend it around your piece.

I love that the FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts die gives you lots of space for a personal message, and I think it looks amazing layered on any of the other larger Reverse Confetti tags!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

Welcome to this week’s edition of WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS?

It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  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.  Today, Confetti Crew member Sarah Gough has a great video to share with you about how to make a darling gift wrap card.

. . . . .

SarahIntroPic

For Wednesday in the Works today, I turned to that little workhorse of a die set, the Office Edges Confetti Cuts! I’ve used a tab from the Office Edges to create a little pocket, turning your card into the perfect giftwrap for a little piece of jewelry, giftcard or cash. My card features a magnetic closure, but you can also use ribbon and I’ll show you both options.
