LOVEBUG CONFETTI CAMERA

Greetings, ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to our newest round of Confetti Camera!

In this weekly (usually 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 showcasing unique ways to use Confetti Cuts dies.
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).
Up in the spotlight today is LISA HENKE…

Welcome! It’s Lisa Henke here with the next round of Confetti Camera. Our theme this round is to use  Confetti Cuts in unique ways. I was in the mood for some cute and easy Valentine projects. I channeled my inner preschool self and pulled out a bunch of my heart Confetti Cuts and decided to make some LOVE BUGS.

I decided on using the Stamped Note Confetti Cuts hearts for my projects today. For my first project,  I cut them in Salsa, Premium Polar White, Midnight and vellum card stock.

My first one used four of the cut out hearts and I layered them together for a darling Love Bug for my tag and gifty.

I filled up a Clear Mini Box with red M&M’s and tied on a bow. I added one of the Tag Duo Confetti Cuts in Piggy Bank card stock. I stamped the sentiment from the just released Heart Filled Sentiments in Midnight ink. Gosh, how I love that black ink for my sentiments. Here is a close up of the tag and Love Bug. I added googly eyes and some twine antennas.

Next I have a rainbow cutie that I made with a row of hearts glued together, I call him a Lovepillar. I used Salsa, Bumble Bee, Tangerine, Lime Green, and RC Aqua card stocks and the Stamped Note Confetti Cut to create the body and head for the Lovepillar. I cut an extra heart in Piggy Bank for his head. I added googly eyes and twine for his antennas, too.

I used a different sentiment from Heart Filled Sentiments and the same Midnight ink along the bottom of the Kindness Cards Confetti Cut. I love how the rounded rectangle can make such a quick and easy little note card, perfect for handmade notes. I drew in the little feet and accented the card with the little teeny red hearts from the Shaker ‘n Frames Confetti Cuts.

It is fun to create little Love Bugs with hearts. You can make them all different sizes depending on which Confetti Cut hearts you choose to use.  Thanks for stopping by today.
Hugs, Lisa

Hey there! It’s my turn to share what I came up with for the Color Me Mine! Confetti Camera challenge! There are very few things that excite me more than gorgeous colors and Reverse Confetti has some of the best colors out there!

When it comes to Christmas, I normally am all about the traditional colors but this particular color combo is just too fun not to try! I chose the following Confetti Colors: Lagoon, Magenta, Iced Aqua, and Parakeet.

One of my favorite things to do to showcase fun color combos is to use bold and graphic images. I thought the Merry & Bright stamp set would be perfect for this! I started by die cutting five lights using the Merry & Bright Confetti Cuts die and then stamping each one with a separate color.

Another thing I like to do to really allow colors to pop is to pair them with a black background. For my background, I chose to add a black die cut panel, die cut from the Large Eyelet Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die.

For embellishment, I added some Baker’s Twine and festive greenery, die cut with the Holly Confetti Cuts die set.

What about you? Do you stick with traditional Holiday colors or do you like to explore different combos?

Hi all!!  This is my first time hosting Confetti Camera and I am super-duper excited!  As I am obsessed with Christmas, I chose a traditional palette using Avocado and Brick.  I wanted an extra colour and thought Sand would be a beautiful addition.

I LOVE mixing pattern papers so I chose a few of my favourites sheets from Very Merry and Free Spirit paper pads.  For my background I basically layered it with large scraps of pattern paper.  I placed them all on top of each other and decided they looked really, really pretty together!

Using Avocado, Brick, and Polar White cardstock, I built up my focal Fa La La Circle Confetti Cuts and added a bit of striped pattern paper from Free Spirit.

Lastly I added a Charcoal twine bow to the leaves of the Holly Confetti Cuts.

This was a FUN card to put together and is simple enough to make in multiples!

First up in the spotlight today is the super sweet and wonderfully talented, AMY SHEFFER…

Hi there, Amy S. here today with this week’s Confetti Camera. Reverse Confetti’s wide range of ink colors makes it easy to put together unique and interesting color combos. Today I’m using Pistachio, Wine, Blueberry and Stone.

 

 

I’ve used these colors to stamp and die-cut a non-traditional fall pumpkin arrangement using the Pumpkin Patch stamp set and coordinating Pumpkin Patch Confetti Cuts.

 

 

I adhered the pumpkin and leaves onto a white stitched circle that I die-cut using one of the Pop Up Circle Confetti Cuts dies. To ground the pumpkin and to bring in a little bit more of the Stone color, I added a simple horizontal strip of Stone card stock wrapped with white linen thread.

 

Nothing shows off a rich color combo better than white. Here I’ve used my new favorite Leaf Lattice Cover Panel to create a white-on-white background. Simple but so striking!

. . . . .
Next up in the spotlight is the one and only, LISA HENKE…

Hello Fetti fans! It’s Lisa Henke here with the latest Confetti Camera Feature. I was really excited for my turn this go-round. We were asked to create with a favorite color combo of RC inks and cardstocks. I love my neutrals, so right away I reached for Stone, Sand, and Mist and then I added in the gorgeous Wine color with the RC Premium Dye Ink.

 

I started with some tone-on-tone stenciling. I used the Leaf Latice Stencil to sponge on Stone Premium Dye ink. I love the subtle texture it adds. I used Sand and Mist card stock along with the Nuts About You Confetti Cuts stitched grassy hill die. I layered those along the bottom of the stenciled Stone card stock piece. I stamped the Christmas Bear and colored him up with Copic markers in the same color combo as my card.  I then used the Christmas Bear Confetti Cuts to quickly cut him out. I stamped the Sentimental Christmas greeting in Wine Premium Dye ink along the bottom of the Mist hill.

 I stamped the stars from Christmas Bear  in Mist Pemium Dye ink and the snowflakes from the same set in Wine Premium Dye ink. I finished the card off with a few sequins in the challenge colors and rounded opposite corners of the card to soften the feel of the card.

. . . . .

To create my card, I started off by cutting an A2 card base from Stone card stock.  I adhered a piece of patterned paper from the Under The Umbrella paper pad on an angle on the bottom  1/3 of the card base.    Just above the patterned paper, I added a thin strip of Midnight card stock.  I stamped and colored several images from the Build a Bunch stamp set, and then diecut them with the coordinating Build a Bunch Confetti Cuts die set.  To fill in my bouquet some more, I stamped one of the smaller floral images in Iced Aqua ink, and diecut those as well.  I stamped a sentiment from the One Day at a Time stamp set along the diagonal of the patterned paper in Midnight Ink, then I arranged my bouquet. Before I glued everything down, I decided that I needed to add a bit more black to the card for better balance, so I watered down some black acrylic paint, and spattered it on with a paint brush.  Once it was dry, I adhered by bouquet to the right of the sentiment.  Most is glued flat with a glue pen, and the two smaller flowers are popped up with foam tape for a little bit of dimension.  I also added white gel pen accents to all of the flowers and leaves.  Finally, to finish things off, I added a scattering of black sequins.
