CONFETTI CAMERA

December 18, 2014

Woot, Woot…time for 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 cards completed inside and out from each of our designers. A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such on 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.

On camera today is the sweet, stylish and creatively savvy, LISA HENKE

Hello, sweet Fetti’ Fans! Lisa Henke here bringing you this week’s Confetti Camera Challenge.  I pulled out the adorable Quirky Cutie: MARLEY MOOSE for my Inside & Out card today. I loved this challenge because I admit I have been horrible about doing up the inside of my cards recently. I used to do it all the time.  I forgot how fun (and cute) it is. It adds just that little something extra to your card that the recipient is SURE to love……AND it’s another great way to get more mileage out your supplies.

LH-photo1

I used the current Retro Sketch for my layout and added my favorite LET IT SNOW Confetti cuts done in vellum and topped with sequins. I hand cut a snowy hill and accented that with the CIRCLE GARLAND Confetti Cuts die.  I love this Marley Moose stamp set because it’s not just for holiday time. He can be used ALL winter long.  Here’s a closer look.

LH-photo2

With all the flakes flying, I decided to give him a hat. I stamped him and the hat on X-Press it blending cardstock and colored them up with Copics. I then cut him out and popped him up with some foam dimensionals.

LH-photo 3-INSIDE

Here is the INSIDE of my card. It’s a great way to pull in colors you used on the outside of your card. So I layered up some coordinating cardstock for the base. When using a line art image, like those from the Quirky Cuties line, I like to add a partially inked image of the same stamp done in a colored ink. I felt like there was a lot going on on the outside of my card, so the INSIDE was the perfect place for the sentiment. I also tied in another vellum Let It Snow flake. Still simple and super sweet! There is also plenty of space for a handwritten note.

COFFEE & FRIENDS

December 10, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the Reverse Confetti post for the Holiday Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop.

We are proud to be a sponsor for this fabulous caffeine injected hop filled with lots of fun…and prizes!  You can see a full list of details and sponsors HERE.  We hope you will play along, too!

. . . . .

My card today uses the BE A BARISTA stamp set, along with die cuts from our LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts and NORTH POLE WISHES Confetti Cuts die sets…

HCLHop2

HCLHop1

I embossed the coffee cup in white on kraft cardstock and then added a little bit of shading with my Copic T3 (toner) and Colorless Blender.  The heart and holly embellishment create the subtle, yet perfect holiday flair that I was going for…

 HCLHop

 . . . . .

So, here’s a little funny story.  The card below was the original card I created for this hop.  If you’ve taken a look down, you’ve noticed there is not one bit of holiday cheer on that card.  I don’t know what I was thinking when I made this card for a HOLIDAY hop, but I obviously didn’t have a whole lot of holiday spirit happening that day.  Anyways, I thought I would still share it even though it missed the mark on half the theme of this hop!  Go ahead…laugh WITH me!

As you can see, I used the same image and sentiment from the BE A BARISTA set, along with our DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts…

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

December 9, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s time for a special TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  You may recall, over the summer Confetti Crew member, Heather, made this card…

I just adore this clever card!  So much so that I asked if she would be willing to make a Christmas/wreath card using the same concept to showcase the versatility of this Confetti Cuts die set.  Well she did, and I am so excited that Heather is here sharing it with you today!

. . . . .

HeatherIntroPic

Hi, everyone! Heather P. here with a festive take on a card I created using  Fresh ‘n Fruity Confetti Cuts.  A few months ago, I created the card above using the lemon and orange dies to create a flower, and paired it with one of the lovely sentiments from Fabulous Flamingo.  I love using dies in unexpected ways, it’s a great way to stretch your stash!

 120914

To create my wreath, I used the following Confetti Cuts dies:

Fresh ‘n Fruity

Donut You Know

Circles ‘n Scallops

Branch Out

Tagged Tote

Here’s how:  I started with a piece of light green card stock, and layered together the circle die from the  Donut You Know Confetti Cuts with the largest circle die from the Circles ‘n Scallops Confetti Cuts.  Once run through my machine, this game me a thin, hollow circle to use a guide for my leaf placement.  I die cut 10 green lemons using the Fresh ‘n Fruity Confetti Cuts, and adhered 5 of them (evenly spaced) to the top of the hollow circle.

120914b

I then used my bone folder to score a line down the center of the remaining die cuts, and adhered them to the hollow circle (using pop dots) between the first set of die cuts.  So easy! :)

120914c

Next, I used the Triple Chevies Confetti Cuts to die cut some vellum, and adhered the strips to a medium gray card base.  I then stamped one of the sentiments from Seasonal Sentiments in Versamark ink onto a piece of aqua card stock before heat embossing with white powder.  I then adhered the sentiment to the card base with pop dots.

Once I figured out how much of the wreath I wanted to display on my card, I used my guillotine paper trimmer to cut off the excess.  I then adhered the wreath to the card front with pop dots.  To decorate the wreath, I used the bare tree from the Branch Out Confetti Cuts on silver glitter paper, and secured them to the petals leaves with Tombo multi-glue.  I die cut a pink bow from the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts, adhered it to the wreath with pop dots, and covered it with Stickles.  To finish up, I embellished with white enamel dots.
