I have a few projects to share with you today using these new products.

This first one uses the new GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts die set…

Also on this money holder tag is the WREATHS Confetti Cuts, HOLLY Confetti Cuts, WINTER WORDS Confetti Cuts and WINTER WORDS COORDINATES that we released last month and the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts.

The holly leaves are cut from vellum and the word “merry” and holly berries are cut from glitter cardstock…

. . . . .

Here’s another project using the GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts die set.  This time I did not use the gift card “hole” for it, but rather kept it as a simple tag…

Also used on this tag is the new HANG UPS Confetti Cuts (re-inforcer),  WITH LOVE stamp set and the (previously released) WHOLE LOTTA DOTS stamp set, along with the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set, DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die set and HOLLY Confetti Cuts die set.

. . . . .

These next tags use the TOPPED OFF TAG along with the new HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die set and the new Holly Jolly QUICK CARD PANELS

DSC06196

Going from left to right, I added just a little more detail to each.  The tag on the left is simply cut from the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die and then I added the HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die cuts to the top.

The middle one is also cut from the TOPPED OFF TAG and has the HANG UPS detail on it, but I also added the small wreath from the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set and embellished it with sequins and rhinestones.  Here’s a detail shot of this tag…

DSC06162

The one on the right is the most embellished.  As with the others, it is cut from the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die. I added the “topper” to it, along with a re-inforcer.  Under the topper is a scalloped edge cut from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die.  The bottom has both an embellishment from the HOLLY Confetti Cuts die set along with a sentiment panel stamped with the new WITH LOVE stamp set.

. . . . .

Just one more project to share before I send you on  your way…

DSC06192

This tag features the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts, BUBBLY TAG TOPPER Confetti Cuts, HANG UPS Confetti Cuts and the new WITH LOVE STAMP SET…I just love how these all play so well together!  I tied off the top with some the STRAWBERRY TWINE we now have in store.

BUBBLY TAG TOPPERS

BubblyTagToppersCCProductGraphic

These BUBBLY TAG TOPPERS Confetti Cuts dies are made specifically to go on top of the tag from the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die set, giving you more options for more great tag creations!

. . . . .

I have 2 tags to share with you today that both use the tag from the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts die set along with the BUBBLY TAG TOPPERS Confetti Cuts die set.

I switched back into non-holiday mode for these tags, but I know that I will be reaching for them over and over as I complete my holiday gift wrapping.

First up is one that I created for the hubster…

DSC06135

For this tag, I cut the tag from both white and aqua cardstock.  Then, I cut out the BUBBLY TAG TOPPERS Confetti Cuts from green cardstock and trimmed the aqua piece to layer underneath.

The top of the tag also has a new hanger from the HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die set…

DSC06137

The “celebrate” sentiment and the “to:/from:” are from the new WITH LOVE stamp set…

DSC06134

I used the new ALPHABETICAL stamp set to stamp our names on the lines…

DSC06138

Also used on this tag is a star cut from orange cardstock with the YOU ARE A STAR Confetti Cuts die set and then stamped with the large dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS.

This is a super easy tag template to have on hand for many occasions!  Simply switch the colors and shape of embellishment to coordinate with the event you are celebrating!

. . . . .

Next up is a sweet baby girl tag…

DSC06130

I had the same aqua cardstock on my desk and layered it under the BUBBLY TAG TOPPERS Confetti Cuts layer for this tag.

The sentiment (from the new WITH LOVE stamp set) is stamped on a circle from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set and embellished with a heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set and a button tied off with Cappuccino twine (my fave!)…

CONFETTI CAMERA

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

Are you local to North Texas?  If so, I hope you will join us this weekend!

MNT

. . . . .

Happy Thursday and welcome to the latest CONFETTI CAMERA!

ConfettiCameraRCblog

A little bit about Confetti Camera…

In this weekly 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, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from throwback projects from each of our designers.  I have been stamping for a long time and I have seen things come and go and then come around.  A primary example of this is shaker cards.  We’re taking a look back to those “way back when” projects and breathing new life into them.

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.

. . . . .

Today, the spotlight is on the fun and wildly talented, LISA HENKE

LisaHIntroPic

. . . . .

Hello! I loved the theme of this round of Confetti Camera, “Everything Old is New Again” challenge. I went looking back through the Tutorials page on Splitcoast Stampers. OH, MY there is a wealth of info and tutorials over there. I stumbled upon a beaded pen tutorial and remember that being one of the first non-card project I ever did when I began paper crafting. Lucky me, I still had half a container of clear micro beads. I didn’t just want to do the pen and then I remembered these Corner Bookmarks we made at a class I taught years ago.

RC-bookmark pen combo-A

The book mark was quick and easy. If you are a member on SCS you can find the tutorial listed under Corner Book Mark. You need a 4 inch square piece of card stock, mark the center of three sides and score them to fold in two triangles. Cut a smaller square, 2 3/4 inches and cut in half to create your customized stamped piece.

RC-bookmarkB

I used the gorgeous new YOU ARE A STAR stamp set and matching Confetti Cuts to decorate my book mark. My son is working hard om his summer reading for school, so I thought this would put a smile on his face. I picked some bright, fun, but boyish colors. I added some white dots along the bottom strip with WHOLE LOTTA DOTS. The orange dots are from ROUNDABOUT.

RC-camera book mark C

Here is the backside and how it slips onto the book page.

RC- camera-bookmark backside D

The coordinating pen was simple, too. I used a 2×4 mailing label to stamp my design on.

rc-camera pen and cap E

I used the same You Are a Star stamps in the same colors, but this time added punches of orange with the COLOR ME HAPPY stamp set. I needed to fill in the white space a little more since I would be wrapping the label around the pen.

rc-pen design F

Next use a strong double sided tape (I like to use Red Line tape) to cover the stamped label. Peel off the stamped label with the red line still attached and wrap it around the pen. When you have the pen wrapped, remove the liner and roll into micro beads. Give them a good pressing, I like to use a bone folder for extra pressure and to make sure the beads adhere to the tap.

rc-pen tape G

Here’s a closer look at the finished pen. A nice finishing touch was a small die cut star from You are a Star Confetti Cut tied on with some silver twine around the pen cap.

I hope you’ll feel inspired to try something old and make it new again. Thanks so much!

This is a fun layered sketch with lots of chances for you to make it your own by flipping it, using Confetti Cuts dies and/or embellishing.  Have fun with it!

Before I get to all the wonderful inspiration that the Confetti Crew came up with using this sketch, let’s go over the details…
