COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI

Greetings, ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to DAY THREE of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!

It’s our third and final day of reveals and tonight at midnight all of the new products will be live in the store.  We’re celebrating the release with a HUGE hop tomorrow.  You do not want to miss it!

. . . . .

It’s also the final day to enter to win on Facebook.  Check out our page HERE and look for the graphic below.  Winners announced later today.

. . . . .

Today we are revealing 2 new stamp sets with coordinating Confetti Cuts.  I love both of these for Valentine’s Day, but know that they will be used over and over throughout the year.

The first set features a gorgeous rose silhouette and 3 hand scripted sentiments…

SOMETHING WONDERFUL

Coordinating Confetti Cuts…

. . . . .

As you know, I am not much for messy techniques, but I do love clean, simple ones that create a lot of impact.  By stamping the rose image from SOMETHING WONDERFUL in white pigment ink and then stamping over it in STONE ink I was able to create a lot of depth on this card…

On the STONE cardstock base, I stamped the rose image 4 times and then stamped over those images in STONE ink.  I also stamped 2 more just like that and cut them out.  From there, I layered those cuts with cuts from MIDNIGHT cardstock and popped them over the sentiment.

I love this sentiment!  It’s uplifting and great for so many occasions, or just because.

One more detail shot…

. . . . .

There’s no doubt that this world needs more kindness in it.  What better way to spread a little kindness and cheer with our new set…

KINDNESS CARDS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts…

This set is makes the perfect little lunchbox notes for kiddos and sweet notecards for friends and neighbors to let them know what they mean to you.  Also included is a thank you sentiment for sweet thank you notes.

I created this coordinating set so quickly and easily and I can’t wait to pass them out…

Each of the cards was cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock with the rounded rectangle (3″ x 4″) from the KINDNESS CARDS Confetti Cuts.  I then stamped the “I think you’re,” “because” and dashed lines in LAGOON ink (I cannot seem to put this color away-swoon!).  From there, I stamped the diagonal lines from the ELEMENTAL STRIPES stamp set in FLAMINGO ink.

Each of the descriptive words is stamped in SUNSHINE ink and cut out and layered over a DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER cut from ICED AQUA cardstock. I then stamped the arrows in RUST and LIME GREEN inks, along with the heart in FLAMINGO ink.

You already know who you want to pass these out to, don’t you?  For me, it’s YOU!!  I wish I could make one for every ‘Fetti Fan out there!  These particular ones will probably make their way into my kiddos’ lunch boxes and into my son’s 2nd grade teacher’s mailbox.

Alright, it’s time for me to send you on your way to see more great projects made with the new goodies we are introducing today!

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: Heart Spots

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to DAY TWO of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI!

If you missed yesterday’s post, you missed A LOT, so be sure to scroll down and check it out.  We’re just a couple days away from our January 8th release when 6 new stamp sets, 5 new Confetti Cuts die sets and a new 6×6 paper pad will be available.  We have a BIG party (hop) planned for the 8th, too!

Here’s our schedule for the next few days…

. . . . .

You have a chance to win over on Facebook, too.  Just look for this graphic and instructions at the top of our feed…

. . . . .

We have a super duper cute critter set to introduce to you today…

HEART SPOTS

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

Aren’t they the cutest!?!  I call them cheetahs, but the design team has had a discussion on whether they are cheetahs or leopards (jaguars even came up).  Call ’em what you want as long as you call them cute…and then color them and pop them on a card!

I stamped the images on our CLOUD WHITE cardstock, which is **GREAT** for watercoloring and then I used Zig Watercolor Brushes to color the images on this card…

I started with a card base measuring 3.75″ square and then topped it with a STONE cardstock panel.  From there, I layered a MIDNIGHT cardstock layer cut with the DROP COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts and the large square frame from the SCALLOPED SQUARES Confetti Cuts die set (in STONE).  The frame is popped up with dimensional adhesive.

I then added the images and the hearts (from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set) and the “i love us” sentiment.  I had a few extra twine bows on my desk from yesterday’s project and decided to go ahead and add one here, too.

. . . . .

That’s all for me today.  The Confetti Crew has a lot to share with you today and we’ll be back tomorrow for our third and final day of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI with even more reveals.  Don’t miss a thing!

CONFETTI CAMERA

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Day Before Sneak Peeks Start!

Join us tomorrow as we kick off the party for our February release…

NextRelease

. . . . .

It’s Thursday and time for…

ConfettiCameraRCblog

A little bit about Confetti Camera…

In this weekly (Thursday) 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 each of our designers are working on Celebrations!  However, there is a little something different…I have challenged them to forego birthdays and to “think outside the card.”  I think you are going to LOVE what you see!

A couple of things to note:

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

2) Each designer will follow the same theme 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.

In the spotlight today is the sweet and talented, LAURIE SCHMIDLIN

Hi ‘Fetti fans! I’m excited to share with you what I came up with for the newest Confetti Camera theme, “Celebrate Good Times”! Even though the obvious birthday theme is off limits, I was still need some little gifties for my kids’ school Valentine’s Day party. I’ve been a part of our school’s Booster Club for a while and have gotten in the habit of giving gifts to each of the students and teachers. So naturally, I found this Confetti Camera theme perfect for me! Here is what I came up with…

Valentine's Giftie Ensemble

I started by covering these little 2″ boxes with some patterned paper to dress them up. I filled each of them up with some candy (of course) and a mini chapstick. To decorate them, I layered on a large and small heart (created with the Heart to Heart stamp set and coordinating Heart to Heart Confetti Cuts die set), a die cut arrow (from the Arrow Confetti Cuts), and the circular sentiment (from the Crushin’ stamp set).

Valentine's Giftie Ensemble4

Valentine's Giftie Ensemble3

Valentine's Giftie Ensemble5

For the teacher gift, I used many of the same elements as the little boxes but added a fun little notebook paper layer as well (created with the Class Act stamp set and coordinating Class Act Confetti Cuts die set).

I created the cute tote bag with the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts die set. I filled this one with candy, suckers, and some matching red pens! 🙂

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

Today, we have a special WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS brought to you by Confetti Crew Member, Amy Sheffer.

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.

AmyS

Hi ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy here with a fun peek-a-boo tag for today’s Wednesday in the Works.

RCpeekabootag1-1

I started by filling a Frosted Pillow Box with some candy, then added a pretty tag that I die-cut with the Thanks Tag Confetti Cuts. Because the tag is nearly as large as the box, I decided to cut a window into the tag so that the contents would show through. Here’s what I did:

RCpeekabootag1-2

  1. Die-cut two tags using the Thanks Tag die, one from patterned paper and one from acetate.

RCpeekabootag1-3

  1. Die-cut one Globe from white card stock.

RCpeekabootag1-4

  1. Use the Globe die to cut a circle window in the patterned paper tag.

RCpeekabootag1-5

  1. In-lay the white Globe into the circle window and adhere, using the acetate Thanks Tag die-cut as a backer.

RCpeekabootag1-6

  1. Add a Hang Ups tag topper using a coordinating piece of patterned paper and a metallic gold grommet die-cut.

RCpeekabootag1-7

  1. Embellish with Leafy die-cuts and a metallic gold Lovey Words sentiment.

RCpeekabootag1-8

  1. I wrapped my Pillow Box with a coordinating patterned paper, making sure to cut a Globe opening in it as well.

RCpeekabootag1-9

  1. Note: the 6×6 patterned paper is just a smidge short to fully wrap the pillow box, so I just added some sparkly gold washi tape at the seam to hide the gap.

Thanks for joining me for this week’s Wednesday in the Works!
