WEEK IN REVERSE

Hello and Happy Friday, my friends!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful creative week and is enjoying these last weeks of summer vacation.  I’ve been busy as a bee prepping for our fall sets to arrive and designed the winter sets.  You all are going to LOVE what’s in store for Reverse Confetti!  I may be just a little biased in saying so, but I really believe it’s true!  Just wait, you’ll see!

. . . . .

Being that is Friday (TGIF!), it’s time for our WEEK IN REVERSE where we get to take a look back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.

Savannah‘s crazy cool style is always so fun!

Amy Sheffer turns up the volume on this bright and beautiful card!

Val‘s anniversary card is simply perfect!  I love grunge style stamping of the large dots paired with the smaller dots on the heart and that sweet sentiment.

WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, CELEBRATE CAKE

Susan made a couple of samples for this week’s DARE TO GET DIRTY celebration and challenges over on Splitcoast Stampers.  What a fabulous gift set that uses an awesome color combo!

I am pretty sure that Dawn has more hours in a day than I do!  She always comes up with several fabulous Reverse Confetti cards each week.  I think Dawn needs to let us in on the secret!

Laurie never ceases to amaze me!  I would never think to mix modern, trendy stamps with Giddy Up paper, but she did it and she did it like a boss…

AUGUST SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

Happy AUGUST!  Wow…time flies!

I love August.  The hot weather, time by the pool or at the lake (like today), friends and family, back to school and birthday cake!  Yep, I’m a Leo (does that explain a lot?).  I’m one of those people that loves their birthday.  Do you?   I know some people want their birthday to be kept a secret, but not me.  I guess after being put on top of a table and getting sung to by a whole restaurant I just embraced the idea of my birthday being an extra fun and special day.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ll probably still be doing loads of laundry and playing chauffeur all day, but it will still be fun and special.

I love the idea of doing Random Acts of Kindness on your birthday…the same amount to match your age.  Have you ever done this?  What did you do?  I’d love some ideas!

. . . . .

Well, I’m sure you didn’t come here to discuss my birthday…that’s just an added bonus, right?

Today is August 1st, which means we get to introduce the new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY (aka SFYTT).  I know that I always say this, but this sketch really is full of possibilities!  I can’t wait to see how you will make it your own!

The August SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY…

RC_SFYTT3

While it might not seem like it, especially because of how I started this post, but it really is a coincidence that I made a birthday card as my sample.  I just really wanted to use the CELEBRATE CAKE set (from our Key Words Collection)…

SFYTT1

Confetti Crew Member, Heather Pulvirenti posted THIS card using the overlapping circles from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS embossed in neon green embossing powder and I immediately was in love and wanted neon green embossing powder so that I could do the same thing!  I even ventured to Hobby Lobby with both kids in tow to get it.  We’re just going to consider that “commitment to my craft” and not “crazy craft lady OCD.”  We’re all in agreement, right?  Ok good, glad we’re on the same page.

Pic of the various details on this card, including the said neon green embossing on the black panel and arrows from the ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS set…

I’ve also been playing around with some of my Heidi Swapp Color Shine sprays (purchased at Michaels).  Instead of spritzing it onto my card base, I put a small paintbrush into the bottle and then flicked the Tinsel color onto by card base to give it just a hint of splatter…
