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.

CONFETTI CAMERA

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Thursday and time for another great CONFETTI CAMERA!

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 our Kiwi pal, the very talented…Sarah Gough!

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, my thoughts turned to the gorgeous Rose Garden stamp set – and how great it would be to send a bouquet of roses that’ll last a little longer than real ones! With that thought in mind I made a card-in-a-box using lots of Confetti Cuts to create a garden of blooms celebrating Mother’s Day.

To create a box this size, I started with a 5×11″ piece of cardstock, scoring at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″ then again at 1.5″. Trim off a 1″ piece and set aside. Cut off the end of the cardstock (crosshatched in the photo) leaving a little tab and cut down the smaller scored lines to create flaps. Using the 1″ piece, create two or three inserts and adhere inside the box as shown (one of mine bent as I put it inside the box, this won’t matter in the long run). Your box will still fold flat, but will also stand upright with sections you can decorate with pop ups!

Using thin strips of acetate and glue dots, I stamped and cut lots of roses and leaves from Rose Garden using the Rose Garden Confetti Cuts. Some are adhered directly to the thin strips of cardstock, others are “floating” on acetate. As I fill the box, I fold it down to see how the flowers will layer when the box is flat.

I also used the Whole Lotta Happy stamp set, the Give Thanks Label Confetti Cuts and added borders to the flaps with the Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts. I used the Leafy Confetti Cuts to add extra leaves and the Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts for some sparkly accents.

When it’s all finished the card-in-a-box should lay relatively flat for easy mailing!

Today’s Confetti Camera is brought to you by the fabulous, LISA HENKE

Lisa

. . . . .

Hello! Lisa Henke here today with the next edition of Confetti Camera. We were asked to create something other than a card and for a celebration other than a birthday! Easy Peasy, here…..it’s Spring Break for my kiddos and myself since I work part time in a school. So we are celebrating Spring Break with an ice cream party! Brownie sundaes to be exact and I love that I have just the right products for the party! My plan is to have this all set out on the table, ready for my boys after the last day of school to kick off the start of Spring Break!

LisaH-Celebrate Spring Break

The banner was my starting point. I used the Hang Ups Confetti Cuts and the small circle die from Donut You Know Confetti Cuts and stamped the letters from Alphabetical to spell out CELEBRATE. I tied the banner on to some Solid Mandarin Twine and attached it to some paper straws. I set the Spring Break theme with some stamped suns from Weather It Together.

I then got busy with a fun way to show off a few of the toppings the boys could add to their sundaes, sprinkles and chocolate chips. Yum! I cut the pinking circle from Flowers For Mom Confetti Cuts and layered on the large solid circle from Circles ‘n Scallops Confetti Cuts. I love how these two layer up. It was a perfect place to add my sentiments, one from Love ‘n Ice Cream and the other from Donut You Know. I attached both to paper straws and simply stick them in the topping bowl.

LisaH-sprinkles

The final celebration piece was a tag to go with MY favorite topping….chocolate sauce or hot fudge. This one is from a locally famous ice cream parlor here in Cincinnati. If you ever visit, check out Graeter’s! It’s awesome! I cut one of the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts and layered on the pierced circle from Flowers For Mom Confetti Cuts. I stamped a greeting from With Love and then added a die cut Love ‘n Ice Cream cone. I added some Donut You Know sprinkles and a Hang Ups tag topper.

LisaH-celebrate happy tag

This idea could work for many occasions, simply Swap out colors and any of the die cut elements to customize your party pieces. Have fun and if you are celebrating Spring Break……relax, enjoy yourself and have a little ice cream party!

SPRING FLING BLOG HOP

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and HAPPY SPRING!

We’re celebrating the flowers blooming and birds chirping with an inspiration filled SPRING FLING Blog Hop!

SpringFlingGraphic

We’ll be giving away a $15 gift certificate to one lucky commenter, too!  Just leave a comment at each stop along the way for your chance to win.  Comments will be open today through Sunday with a winner announced next week.

. . . . .

My project today is a sweet and simple treat basket that I created from the GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts die set (how-to information below)…

DSC_0500

The “main image panel” on the front of the treat basket is created from the FLOWERS FOR MOM and BUTTERFLY DREAMS Confetti Cuts die sets.  I stamped the “happy spring” sentiment (from HIPPITY HOPPITY) on the banner in white pigment ink…

 DSC_0503

The treat basket is filled with paper grass and a little plastic carrot “egg” that I picked up at Hobby Lobby (I think)…

DSC_0512

While this treat basket is all about “spring,” it will be easy to switch up the color/theme for year-round fun!!

How to create this treat basket…

  • Cut 4 of the GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG from cardstock
  • Cut one 3 3/16″ square from same cardstock as tag
  • Score tags at 1″ from the top of the tag & 3/4″ from bottom
  • Adhere top end of tag to each side of square
  • Wrap with patterned paper and embellish
  • Optional: add a 1/2″ handle (mine started at 8.5″ in length and is adhered almost an inch in on each side)
  • Fill it up and give to a family member or friend

. . . . .

It’s time to get hoppin’ and see what the rest of the Crew came up with!

In the spotlight today is the incredibly talented and sweet, KAY MILLER

Kay

Hello! Kay here with the next installment of Confetti Camera! We are challenged this time to create something to celebrate, but not a birthday theme. So being as it’s getting close to Easter I chose to Celebrate Spring’s arrival and the upcoming Easter Holiday. I created two cute little Easter treat boxes to give my kids for Easter, featuring the new Hippity Hoppity stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts dies.

K1

I started by putting together two of the Tagged Totes boxes, one in blue and one in pink. I cut the arched piece that comes with the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts die set out of some cute patterned paper to decorate the fronts. For the blue box with the boy bunny, I used the scalloped frame from Love Note Confetti Cuts and cut one out of white. I cut a coordinating piece of patterned paper out with the Class Act Confetti Cuts and glued that on. I adhered this to the box front with foam tape. For the pink girly box, I did the same, but used Circle N’ Scallops Confetti Cuts.

K4

I then colored the two little bunnies with Copic markers, cut them out and adhered them to their bags with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out like a banner and adhered this along the bottom of each with foam tape. I added the little eggs and die cut some greenery with the Leafy Confetti Cuts to tuck in behind each of them. I then cut out four of the little bows from the Tagged Tote and glued two, slightly skewed, to the top of each bag.

K5

K6

I was so tickled at how cute these turned out. I can’t wait to fill them with Easter candy for the kids! My daughter’s going to love the box as much as what’s in it. My son, while he’ll appreciate that I went to the trouble, he’ll be all about the candy!
