. . . . .

Well, ‘Fetti Fans, here it goes! Jeanne Jachna is sharing projects here for the sneak peek days.  I’ll be back for the hop! Now, you know the drill…sit back, enjoy that cuppa and all of the Confetti Creativity we have in store for you today.

First up is our brand new 6×6 paper pad…

CHEERFUL & KIND

This paper pad has all the right designs and colors for seasonal projects, but easily transitions into a pad that you can reach for all year long.

The Confetti Colors that are in this pad are: Midnight, Lime Green, Flamingo, Rose Red, Baby Blue, Mist and Stone

. . . . .

We have 3 great stamp set introductions for you today (and lotsa Confetti Cuts dies, too).  First up for the stamps is…

CHRISTMAS CHEER

Coordinating Confetti Cuts

Before we hop into the projects, I need to introduce another Confetti Cuts die set that is already gaining a lot of attention…

SCALLOPED SQUARES

. . . . .

Jeanne’s first project of the day features a combination of the new CHEERFUL & KIND 6×6 Paper Pad, CHRISTMAS CHEER stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts and the new SCALLOPED SQUARES Confetti Cuts…

These Santa’s Helpers will have you smiling all season long!

There’s lots of accessories (presents a stocking and a sack) and fun sentiments so you can personalize them for everyone on your NICE list!  Matching Confetti Cuts make them a breeze to cut and arrange as you like.

Do you love that Scallop Square frame?  Jeanne used the largest layer of a nested set of 3 dies.  The finished card is 4 ½” Square, and the die cut Scallop Square is 4 1/8”.

. . . . .

Next up in our introductions is a pair of frosty pals…

COOL FRIEND

Coordinating Confetti Cuts

We have a fabulous new 3.25″ x 4.5″ panel, too…

SCALLOP STRIPE PANEL

. . . . .

This next card pairs the new COOL FRIEND stamps and Confetti Cuts dies with the SCALLOP STRIPE PANEL and CHEERFUL & KIND 6×6 Paper Pad…

Layering the SCALLOP STRIPE PANEL with the pattern paper is a fun way to build detail and texture to your projects.  Note, the panel can be used in any direction, for even more possibilities.

The snowflake on this card come from the LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts die set…

One more detail shot…

. . . . .

Here we are at the final introductions for the day and then I’m sending you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew has been up to using the new release goodies.  But first, a little story…

Last year, hubs and I were at Costco doing some Christmas shopping and I picked up a couple of gingerbread house kits.  We had relatives coming in for the holidays and I figured it would be a fun activity to do all together.  I wanted them to be a surprise, so I hid them away in my closet.  Our company came and we had a fabulous time.  They left and then January came and went and before long, I was getting out some stuff in our closet when I spot the 2 gingerbread house boxes sitting up there…in March.  Yes, for 3 months I totally forgot about them.  I didn’t want to bring them out then, so I figured we would do a Christmas in July thing.  Guess what?  I totally forgot about them again!  Granted, I have had A LOT on my plate this year with chemo, surgery, radiation and just life in general, but it’s a little embarrassing to admit that they are still on the top shelf of my closet.  Hopefully, I’ll remember to bring them out after Thanksgiving.  I think we’ll pass on eating them, though!

So why that story?  Because it was a bit of an inspiration for developing this new set…

SWEET HOLIDAY

Coordinating Confetti Cuts

Here is the first of 2 Cover Panels that we are releasing this month…

LARGE DIAMOND COVER PANEL

 . . . . .

Jeanne: I have lots of fond memories of decorating ginger bread houses with my kids. I think more candy made it into our mouths than onto the houses!  This stamp set is calorie free and super sweet!

 

 The details on this confection are amazing!  This card has such a tempting scene…a gingerbread house surrounded by gum drop trees…

 

The chimney has a swirl of gems rising from it, and there is a peppermint walk way to the front door.

 

The Large Diamond Cover Panel makes for a beautiful background. Here it is layered over a watercolor background.  This Cover Panel is magical! You can see the cut out diamonds, X’s between the diamonds,  and ovals surrounding the diamonds!

 . . . . .

It’s time for us to send you on your way to see more fabulous creations using the November release products.  You may even catch a glimpse at another new Cover Panel, too!

HAPPY FALL-IDAYS: CHRISTMAS

Greetings, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s our third and final day of this 2nd annual HAPPY FALL-IDAYS celebration here at Reverse Confetti!  I’m sure you have enjoyed the Halloween and Thanksgiving projects that we have shared the last two days and we have a fun finale for you with Christmas today!

Fallidays_Christmas

. . . . .

Being that I did banners for days 1 & 2, I thought that I would keep with the same theme for today.

dsc_0307

The bases for this banner with cut from the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die set.

Each end is cut from kraft cardstock and then adorned with a bow created from the LAYERED BOW Confetti Cuts die set.  I topped it off with a button tied off with CHARCOAL Striped Twine.  On the bottom of the panel is a LIME GREEN strip cut with dots from the EDGE ESSENTIALS Confetti Cuts die set.

dsc_0299

The next panel is a white TOPPED OFF TAG that is layered with a BRICK cardstock layer cut with the BIG STRIPES TAG LAYER Confetti Cuts die set. From there, I added the tree from the MERRY CHRISTMOOSE Confetti Cuts die set and two snowflakes cut from the SNOWFLAKE TRIO Confetti Cuts die set…

dsc_0308

The center banner is cut from CLOUD WHITE cardstock and is layered with a kraft panel that I cut with the JINGLE ALL THE WAY Confetti Cuts die.  I popped it with dimensional adhesive for added dimension.

Ok, I’m sending you on your way to see all of the fabulous creations from the Confetti Crew…

HAPPY FALL-IDAYS: THANKSGIVING

Greetings, ‘Fetti Fans!

Welcome to the 2nd day of the 2nd annual HAPPY FALL-IDAYS creative event!  Yesterday we shared a spooky and sweet Halloween projects and today we are sharing THANKSGIVING projects.  I think that you’ll find yourself reaching for your Reverse Confetti stash to create lots of these projects for yourself!

Falliday_Thanksgiving

. . . . .

I was so tickled with the way that my little Halloween banner turned out that I decided to stay on that track and create a THANKSGIVING one, too!

dsc_0288

For the bases, I used the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die set cut from kraft (in my stash) and STONE cardstock.

Each of the ends has cuts from the WHEAT Confetti Cuts die set (from STONE cardstock).

dsc_0292

The pumpkin banners are cut from STONE cardstock then layered with the PUMPKIN PATCH Confetti Cuts die cut (using TANGERINE and AVOCADO cardstock)  The SO STRIPEY stamp set was still sitting on my desk, so I went ahead and inked it up with our TANGERINE ink for a tone on tone striped pumpkin.

dsc_0291

The center banner panel has an acorn from the HAPPY HARVEST stamp set (cut with the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set).  The top of the acorn is cut from STONE cardstock and then textured by using the new POINTED OUT stencil and translucent embossing paste.  After the embossing paste was dry, I used a sponge and added a little bit of STONE ink.

One last shot…

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!

dsc_0280

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″.

dsc_0282

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.

dsc_0283

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

Today we are introducing 2 new stamp sets along with some great new Confetti Cuts dies!

I absolutely LOVE real vintage ornaments!  So much so that I wanted to have them as stamps here at Reverse Confetti!

Introducing…

VINTAGE ORNAMENTS

vintageornamentsproductgraphic

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

ccvintageornamentproductgraphic

Before I jump into my first card for today, I want to share with you another new Confetti Cuts die…

2 WAY STRIPES COVER PANEL

cc2waystripescoverpanelproductgraphic

(Yep, just like the 2 WAY STRIPES TAG LAYER that I revealed yesterday).

. . . . .

My first card today features both the VINTAGE ORNAMENTS stamps and Confetti Cuts dies along with the new 2 WAY STRIPES COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts die…

dsc_0234

I stamped the ornaments in BRICK, RC AQUA and LIME GREEN Confetti Colors ink and place them on top of the 2 WAY STRIPES COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts with a piece of ICED AQUA under the bottom stripes.  I love the white on white, but it needed a little extra pop of color and the ICED AQUA does just that.

Detail shot…

dsc_0237

The ornaments are “hung” with Caribbean TWINE and sequins were added for a little touch of bling…

dsc_0235

. . . . .

Before I get to my next card using this duo, I’d like to introduce you to another Confetti Cuts die that will be available on October 8th…

JINGLE ALL THE WAY

ccjingleallthewayproductgraphic

This is a single die that cuts all 4 words at once.

I’ve used the new JINGLE ALL THE WAY Confetti Cuts die along with the new 2 WAY STRIPES COVER PANEL and VINTAGE ORNAMENTS stamps (ornament hanger) and Confetti Cuts dies here…

dsc_0271

“Jingle All The Way” is cut directly from the card base and then is backed with BRICK and AVOCADO cardstock.

dsc_0266

The ornament consist of 2 VINTAGE ORNAMENTS cuts layered/popped up and embellished with leaves (I’m about to reveal those in just a sec), Cappuccino TWINE and jingle bells.

For this card, I cut the 2 WAY STRIPES COVER PANEL cut in half and backed with our new STONE cardstock.  The scalloped edge was created by cutting our new AVOCADO cardstock with the (previously released) WONKY DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die…

dsc_0267

. . . . .

Our second stamp set that we are revealing is the latest addition to our faith based line of stamps…

CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS

christmasblessingsproductgraphic

One of the Confetti Crew Design Team members asked, “Can we please get a wreath with leaves on?”  How about one with leaves, holly and pine needles?…

LEAFY WREATH

ccleafywreathproductgraphic

The CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS stamp set pairs beautifully with the LEAFY WREATH Confetti Cuts die set…

dsc_0190

The wreath is built up with leaves cut in AVOCADO and LIME GREEN and is adorned with holly and pine needles.  I put in atop a piece of patterned paper from the new VERY MERRY 6 x 6 PAD and gave it a bow made from Natural TWINE

dsc_0192

Detail shot of the CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS sentiment…

dsc_0193

. . . . .

Wishing for a white Christmas?  Well, you can have one on paper with the new snowflake Confetti Cuts…

SNOWFLAKE TRIO

ccsnowflaketrioproductgraphic

My last introduction for today is a SUPER FUN new Confetti Cuts die set that will set your cards apart from anyone else’s!

POP UP CIRCLE

cccirclepopupproductgraphic

Here’s what you can do with the new SNOWFLAKE TRIO and POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts (and new CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS stamps)…

dsc_0216

With the POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts, you are able to “pop up” a portion of your card and embellish.  The card still opens and closes as normal and can still fit into an A2 size envelope (**see tutorial below**).

Detail shot of the popped up portion of the card with the stitched circle and scalloped circle included in the POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts die set used to create layers…

dsc_0217

. . . . .

On my next card, I did it just a little differently.  I cut the card base from the new STONE cardstock and then created a stitched circle using the DETAILED CIRCLES Confetti Cuts (as opposed to adding the stitched circle layer included in the POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts die set)…

dsc_0272

I layered the scalloped circled included in the POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts die set behind the STONE base.  The sentiment, from the new CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS stamp set, is stamped in black ink in the center…

dsc_0274

To create the snow drift on this card, I used the rounded edge from the EDGERS Confetti Cuts die set along with Stickles and some matte/shiny glitter.  The trees are from the new MERRY CHRISTMOOSE stamp set and are watercolored and cut using the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.  I added the same glitter to the limbs as “snow.”

dsc_0273

My finishing touches for this card are Charcoal Striped TWINE tied through a wood button, along with sequins and a star cut with SEEING STARS Confetti Cuts die set from ICED AQUA card stock.

. . . . .

As promised, here is a short tutorial on how to use the POP UP CIRCLE Confetti Cuts die set…

step2

cp4

Yep, that easy! *wink*

Other than the fact that you will be making seriously awesome cards with this Confetti Cuts die set, the best part is that (using these measurements) your card will still fit into an A2 size envelope!

. . . . .

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!  Don’t forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win!
