HAPPY FALL-IDAYS: HALLOWEEN

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to DAY ONE of our 2nd annual HAPPY FALL-IDAYS creative event!

Fallidays_Halloween

Like last year, myself and the Confetti Crew will be sharing Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas projects over the course of the next 3 days.  Enjoy all the Confetti Creativity!  We’d LOVE to see your Reverse Confetti Fall-idays projects, too!  Be sure to share them on Facebook and Instagram using #reverseconfetti

. . . . .

As you know, I absolutely LOVE Halloween and decorating for Halloween!  I try to create a new banner every year and I’ve had this idea in my head and knew this was the perfect time to share it!

This banner uses both older and newer Reverse Confetti products.  I LOVE being able to mix and match stuff!

The banners are cut from TANGERINE cardstock with the LAYERED BANNER DUO Confetti Cuts die set.  I then used the HALLOWEEN BITS Confetti Cuts to create the jack-o-lantern and then layered it with a piece of black cardstock (not in our line up yet, but it’s coming).  For the top of the jack-o-lanterns, I cut a banner from LIME GREEN cardstock and stamped it with WHOLE LOTTA DOTS and finally trimmed it down to about 1/4″.

The other banner panels are cut from our CLOUD WHITE cardstock and stamped with stripes from the SO STRIPEY stamp set.  I then added a black bat cut with the HALLOWEEN BITS Confetti Cuts die set.  The top of the tag is cut from STONE cardstock.

Finally, each piece of the banner is strung onto CHARCOAL striped twine.

In addition to the 4 new product lines, we, of course, still have our stamps and Confetti Cuts to share with you (YAY!).  As many of you already know, Halloween is my favorite time of year to create and this release has so many fun Fall/Halloween goodies.  With that being said, let’s get onto the introductions…

BEST WITCHES

BestWitchesProductGraphic

BestWitchesCCProductGraphic

My first card today uses the BEST WITCHES stamps and Confetti Cuts along with the new FRIGHT NIGHT 6×6 pad…

For the shaker portion of this card, I used the SHAKERS ‘N FRAMES Confetti Cuts die set.  You may have seen my “secret tool” for making shaker cards on Instagram the other day.  I’ll be doing a Facebook live post about that this week, too.

Detail shot…

The DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die was used to create the scalloped edge (from ICED AQUA cardstock).

. . . . .

Let’s do another product introduction before I get to my next project!  Introducing…

WEB TAG LAYER

WebTagLayerProductGraphic

The WEB TAG LAYER Confetti Cuts die set is the latest addition to the Confetti Cuts that layer with the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die set.

I’ve used it as the perfect spooky backdrop on my next project…

DSC_0965

It’s hard to get spooked with a witch this cute!

The GRAPE SODA tag was cut from the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts and then layered with the new WEB TAG LAYER Confetti Cuts and topped off with the witch, cauldron and sentiment from the new BEST WITCHES stamp set.

Detail shot…

DSC_0966

The tag is finished off with the pinked edge HANG UPS Confetti Cuts (to match the edge of her dress) along with a few green sequins.

. . . . .

Next up is a couple of Halloween themed products that pair well together…

HALLOWEEN BITS

HalloweenBitsProductGraphic

TREAT YO’ SELF

TreatYoSelfProductGraphic

This card uses a variety of new products.  The polka dot background was created with the new LOTSA DOTS stencil and glossy black embossing paste.  Once that was dry, I layered the sentiment from the TREAT YO’ SELF stamp set (on a SCALLOPED CIRCLE Confetti Cuts) and bats from the HALLOWEEN BITS Confetti Cuts die set.

DSC_0955

The bats are doubled up with our GRAPE SODA cardstock below an (in my stash) gray…

. . . . .

It’s so easy making lots and lots of tags when products go together so easily…

DSC_0968

I started off (again!) with the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die set and then stamped the “You’re so FAB-BOO-LOUS” sentiment (from the new TREAT YO’ SELF stamp set) in black.  I added the sweet (or is he spooky?) ghost along with hangers from the HANG UPS, TOO Confetti Cuts die set in ICED AQUA, TANGERINE and (in my stash) black.  As a finishing touch I added buttons tied off with the new CHARCOAL STRIPE twine.

. . . . .

The Confetti Crew has been super busy creating with all the new goodies and I know they are excited to share their creations with you!

HAPPY FALL-IDAYS: HALLOWEEN

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the first annual HAPPY FALL-IDAYS!

What exactly is HAPPY FALL-IDAYS?

It’s an online showcase event where the Confetti Crew will be sharing multiple holiday projects (these go way beyond cards!) and providing a serious dose of Reverse Confetti and holiday inspiration!  The fall and winter holidays are upon us now, so we are making this a 3 day celebration of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas!

As the graphic below would suggest, we are kicking off HAPPY FALL-IDAYS with HALLOWEEN today.  Just below the graphic is a list of all of the Confetti Crew members that are sharing their projects today.  Be sure to scroll past, as I have a little something to share with you, as well!

I love paper crafting.  I love memory keeping projects. I don’t love scrapbooking.

So, what’s a girl to do?

Create paper crafting projects that contain pictures, making them memory keeping projects.

Are you wondering what I am talking about?  (Don’t worry, sometimes nobody knows).

Here’s what I mean…

DSC05934

I created this triptych (geesh, it’s been a LONG time since I made one of these!) and embellished and added pictures of my lil’ ones from last year’s Halloween.  Nic was a vampire (hence the un-living look) and Ellie was a pirate.

The entire project measures 9″ x 5.5″, with folds on 3″ and 6″.

DSC05932

For both Nic & Ellie’s panels, I started with a black and white piece of patterned paper and added a green border with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.  From there, I layered a gray large wreath cut from the *new* WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set, and a tag (THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts) topped with a picture of each kid.  For embellishments, I added the bows atop the tag, the flag ended sentiments (both from TOO CUTE TO SPOOK) and 3 white enamel flat backs…

DSC05921

DSC05923

The center panel is 3 pumpkins cut from the PUMPKIN PATCH Confetti Cuts die set that are each covered in orange glitter.  Each of the pumpkins is popped up on a glue dot for some added dimension.

In short, this is what I call memory keeping…a fun project that I can display year after year that contains picture of a fun family time.

I’ll be on Periscope later today  (I’ll post time on IG)  going over this project, along with some of my other favorite un-scrapbooking projects, too.  See you then!

Let’s get hoppin’ onto the projects for today!

If you were on Periscope with me yesterday afternoon, you got a sneak peek at the projects that I have to share with you today.   Here’s a little something to get you in the spirit of all things fall…

My first project today is a card featuring the new Fall Fun QUICK CARD PANELS along with the new TOO CUTE TO SPOOK stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts.  The cat is placed on a black cardstock SCALLOPED CIRCLE Confetti Cuts panel.

These bats are just too cute!  I have them flying around clouds cut from WEATHER IT TOGETHER Confetti Cuts.

This next project features the (previously released) TAGGED TOTE and GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die sets along with the new WALK BY FAITH stamp set and PUMPKIN PATCH stamps and Confetti Cuts die set…

DSC05669

I cut the black panel with the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die and then stamp and embossed the WALK BY FAITH sentiment.  I gave it a bit of a chalkboard look by sketching in the white outline and rubbing white pigment ink on the edges and over the embossing.

The pumpkin is cut from the PUMPKIN PATCH Confetti Cuts die set and then I added the leaves and stamped/cut swirlies and stem.  Inside is a bag of candy pumpkins…yum!
