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.

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST TODAY will be randomly chosen to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Winners for both the blog comments and Facebook comments will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog as well as on Facebook.

. . . . .

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!

COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI: Heart Filled Sentiments, Congratulations, New Confetti Cuts and Paper

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to DAY ONE of the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI for our January release!

On January 8th at midnight EST, we will be releasing 5 new stamp sets, 6 new Confetti Cuts die sets and a new 6×6 paper pad.  We’re having a super inspiration and guest filled post that day, too (just sayin’)!

Here’s a look at our schedule for the next few days…

. . . . .

As you know, 2017 was a #beastmode year for me.  A lot of that energy was directed to getting healthy and basically treading the water of day to day life.  That didn’t leave a lot of creative energy for me to work with and for the last half of the year, many designers were blogging here while my creative mojo and my energy re-booted.   I am happy to say that I AM BACK to creating like I used to and I am so excited to share my projects with you for the release!

So, you know the drill…sit back, enjoy that cuppa and enjoy all the Confetti Creativity we have for you today (and we have A LOT!).

First up in our introductions is the new 6×6 Paper Pad…

FOREVER MY LOVE

Coordinating Confetti Colors for FOREVER MY LOVE are: Navy, Peach, Coral, Seafoam, Sand, Dark Roast, Lagoon

. . . . .

Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it and we have the perfect sentiment set for all of your Heart Day celebrations…

HEART FILLED SENTIMENTS

Before I get to my first project using a bunch of these sentiments, let me share with you one of my new favorite Confetti Cuts dies…

FALLING HEARTS PANEL

For my first project that I will be sharing with you, I created a set of cards using both the HEART FILLED SENTIMENTS and FALLING HEARTS PANEL Confetti Cuts…

To begin this card, I cut the FALLING HEARTS PANEL from both PIGGY BANK and SALSA cardstock.  I offset the two colors and adhered them together using dimensional adhesive.

Each of the cards has a different sentiment stamped in MIDNIGHT ink.  I “dressed up” the sentiment panel by adding a banner layer (cut from MIDNIGHT cardstock) and an ICED AQUA cut of the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.  I used the small side on 2 of the cards and the large side on the other 2 cards.  I added 2 hearts cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set (SALSA and PIGGY BANK).  To finish it off, I added a double bow of CHARCOAL striped twine.

Here’s a shot of all 4 sentiments that I used…

. . . . .

Next up on our introductions today is a set that will be a go-to, for sure!  Especially for upcoming graduation and wedding season, but it really can be used for so much more…

CONGRATULATIONS

We love this set!  So much so that we created TWO Confetti Cuts dies to coordinate with it…

The CONGRATULATIONS Confetti Cuts die set has the coordinating cuts for the images in the CONGRATULATIONS stamp set, plus a “bonus” confetti swirl.

We also created a 4.25″ square panel to go with this stamp set, making it even more versatile and fun to play and work with…

CONGRATS SQUARE PANEL

The CONGRATS SQUARE PANEL Confetti Cuts die can also be used on its own.

. . . . .

You know when you sketch out a card/project and then when you go to create it, it looks nothing like what you had in your mind?  It happens all the time to me.  BUT NOT HERE!  I had pretty much just this image in my head and sketched it out.  Needless to say, I was pretty tickled (ok, so flippin’ happy) when it all came out just how I wanted it to.

I stamped the “Congratulations” sentiment and then added a complementing sentiment 3x and then added the fish tails (NAVY cardstock) which I sewed onto the card panel.

The “Congratulations” sentiment is stamped in NAVY ink and the other sentiments are stamped in LAGOON and LIME GREEN ink, respectively.  I wanted to highlight “we’re so proud of you,” so I added the coordinating cardstock strips across the back of this sentiment.

To embellish, I added a star stamped in SUNSHINE ink on SUNSHINE cardstock and then added the confetti swirls (ICED AQUA cardstock).

For a finishing touch, I added a sequin and clear acrylic dot atop the stars.

. . . . .

My hubs says that this next card is his favorite of the ones that I have made for this release (so far, a few more things to make still)…

For this card, I used a 4.25″ square card base and then layered a piece of STONE cardstock and then a SMALL DIAMOND TILES COVER PANEL in PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock.  From there, I cut the CONGRATS SQUARE PANEL from STONE cardstock and stamped “and best wishes” in MIDNIGHT ink.

I then cut the CONGRATS SQUARE PANEL from MIDNIGHT cardstock and trimmed off the word and layered it, offset, behind.  And, then I popped it up on top using dimensional adhesive  Here’s a pic from when I was working on it…

From there, I stamped the heart from the CONGRATULATIONS set in CORAL and FLAMINGO ink and added them to the card.

Now, I just need a wedding or anniversary party to go to give this card away.

. . . . .

Ok, it’s time for me to send you on your way to see what the Confetti Crew has been up to with these new goodies!  Don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance to win!

HAPPY WINTER

Coordinating Confetti Cuts

. . . . .

From Jeanne: This set has so many possibilities!  You can create so many different looks to the hat by adding a pom pom top or some fringed ties!   I love the border and accent pieces too!

I stamped a colorful background using the border stamp in LOTS of CONFETTI COLORS!  Top to bottom…  Piggy Bank, Flamingo, Salsa, Tangerine, Bumble Bee, Buttercup, Lime, Avocado, Iced Aqua, Island Blue, Navy Blue, and Royal Purple.

I adhered the panel to my card base and then stacked on All Framed Up Confetti Cuts.   The stitched detail on the die is prefect with the knit caps.   The rainbow of colorful stamping peeks through the layered  frames and makes the perfect setting for the cap.

SNO AWESOME

Coordinating Confetti Cuts

. . . . .

From Jeanne: I love when I can play with my food!  LOL!  This snow cone set features a scoop of shaved ice, a paper cup and a cute little scarf! I stamped a background of snow cones and inked the ice in juicy colors!   The set includes accents that  I stamped in assorted colors to fill the gaps between the treats.  The sentiments have mixed fonts with a retro feel.   This one fit perfectly on the Tag Duo Confetti Cuts.

Detail shot…

. . . . .

Our next introduction is also food related, but in a much different way.  This set is fabulous for all those foodie gifts during the holiday season…

KITCHEN LOVE

Coordinating Confetti Cuts

Before we get to the project featuring this “delicious” set, we have one more introduction for you.  As I mentioned yesterday, we are releasing 2 different Cover Panels.  When designing these, I had both in front of me and I couldn’t decide if we should have large or small diamonds.  Seriously, can a girl have too many diamonds? *wink*

SMALL DIAMOND TILES COVER PANEL

I love how Jeanne’s card pairs the KITCHEN LOVE stamps and Confetti Cuts perfectly with the SMALL DIAMOND TILES COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts die…

From Jeanne: When I’m not crafting I’m cooking, and this time of year I love to bake!   This stamp set will be handy for dressing up some home baked goods to give to friends and family.

I love all the different images included in this set.  There’s everything you need to whip up something amazing!  And while this set is perfect for holiday baking I know I’ll be using it all year round for different occasions!

. . . . .

The Confetti Crew has lots of “sno-y” and “sweet” projects to share with you today!  Check ’em out and leave a comment for a chance to win at each stop along the way!
