CONFETTI CAMERA

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Thursday!

We have a fabulous Confetti Camera here for you today!

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 our ink and cardstock in their favorite color palette.  This is a fun way to see what you can do with your Confetti Colors!
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 talented, DEANNE KUNTZ

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!

CONFETTI CAMERA DOUBLE FEATURE

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Thursday!

We have an excellent Confetti Camera post here for you today featuring not just one, but TWO of the Confetti Crew design team members.

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 our ink and cardstock in their favorite color palette.  This is a fun way to see what you can do with your Confetti Colors!
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.
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.
