INTRODUCING OUR ‘FETTI FRIEND…

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Today, we have a super sweet introduction to our March & April ‘Fetti Friend…

A little about Kathy in her own words…

I’m Kathy Schweinfurth and am beyond thrilled and honored to be the March/April ‘Fetti Fan for Reverse Confetti – it’s like a dream come true!

I live in the Midwest with my DH, Mark. We have a wonderful daughter, Danielle, who is in college.  Crafting has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and in 1997 a love affair began with stamping and has been my passion ever since. While I have a clean, layered style using stamps, dies and pattern paper, I have enjoyed “getting inky” and playing around with mixed media.

Thank you, Reverse Confetti!  I’m so looking forward to sharing my creations with your marvelous products for the next couple months!!

CONFETTI CAMERA

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans!

This week is flying by and we have so many preparations underway here in the Reverse Confetti offices for the March 8th release.  We start our Countdown to Confetti on the 5th.  Mark your calendars, as you won’t want to miss this!

. . . . .

Today, we have another wonderful CONFETTI CAMERA!

A little bit about Confetti Camera…

In this weekly (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 CASE-ing a card created from one of the other Confetti Crew members.  In stamping terms, CASE means to Copy And Stamp Exactly.  The Crew is taking a previously made card and making it new.  This is a fun way to see what you can do with your stamps and, I think, that it helps you grow as a creative person as it requires you to think outside the box a bit.

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.

In the spotlight today is the sweet and talented, AMY ROHL…

Hey there, ‘Fetti Friends, it’s Amy here with this week’s Confetti Camera. The theme for this round of Confetti Camera is CASE-ing a card from another member of the Confetti Crew and then changing things up a bit.

Let me tell you, I spent hours pouring over the beautiful creations of my fellow Crew members – talk about hours of fun! I finally decided on a recent card by Heather Hoffman that she’d done for the #beastmode blog hop.


​I love the contrasting card base and cover panel setting the scene for the beautifully stamped sentiment. I also really liked the flag end banners highlighting the sentiment from either side as well.

​I started by switching out Heather’s Leaves Cover Panel with the Big Stripes Cover Panel along with a change up in colors.


​Instead of layered circles, I opted for a Tag Me Confetti Cuts tag topped with an Seaside Confetti Cuts anchor and sentiment from the coordinating Seaside set. Finally, I added a flag end banner, also from Tag Me Confetti Cuts, peeking out below the tag in contrast to Heather’s side flags.
I hope you enjoyed my take on Heather’s card for this round of Confetti Camera!
