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.
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.
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.
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.
We’ve got a great WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS here for you today!
Confetti Crew member, Sarah, shares how to make this darling giftie…
Hello, Sarah here! I love giving little gift baskets to family that come in from out of town – no one needs to pay mini bar prices for a late night snack right?! Here I’ve taken a cute but plain little shopping basket and added a bright shaped tag using lots of Reverse Confetti goodies! I think this would make a perfect neighbor gift as well!
The rush of the holiday season is certainly upon us. I find myself running a little more ragged as each day passes. I’m looking forward to spending time with family and friends next week and celebrating Christmas.
Please note, our offices will be closed Dec. 22-26 so that we may enjoy time with our family and friends.
We hope that you will enjoy this time with those close to you, as well.

Check out the fabulous inspiration whipped up by some of the gals of the Confetti Crew!
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…
. . . . .
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!
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!
. . . . .
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!
To create my wreath, I used the following Confetti Cuts dies:
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!
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.
