Confetti Camera

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy *Almost* Friday!

Today, we have a gorgeous Confetti Camera to share with you!

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, MELISSA PHILLIPS…

“Hi there!  Melissa Phillips here with my very first Confetti Camera.  I’ve selected this beautiful card from Laurie Schmidlin…I’ve been a fan of hers forever and ever and just love her work.

I loved the basic sketch of her card and built mine around that.  I was also drawn to her beautiful watercoloring and incorporated that behind my sentiment just as she did.

Like in Laurie’s card, I used a faith-based stamp set, Easter Blessings, on my card. To make my sentiment stand out I anchored it to a die cut Lacy Scallop Circles Confetti Cut, and then layered it over patterned paper.

 I loved Laurie’s use of the flowers from Blooms ’N Buds stamp set, and used them here on my card as well.  I stamped the detailed flower images on watercolor cardstock using watermark ink, and then heat embossed them using white embossed powder.

I then stamped the solid flower image over the top of my embossing powder and added a bit more color using my Zig Clean Color Markers.

This was such a fun assignment and I found it so inspiring to get to create something inspired by someone I admire so much!”

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Hi ‘Fetti fans, it’s Amy Sheffer here today with a new Wednesday in the Works installment. I got some questions last month about the nail polish marbling technique that I used for my #beastmode blog hop card, so I thought I’d make a quick video to show you how to do it.

I turned one of those beautiful marbled panels from the video into today’s card.

I used the marbled panel as my background, then combined a stamped and die-cut sentiment using You’re So stamps and a word die from the You’re So Confetti Cuts die set.

I adhered the torn vellum with some liquid adhesive behind the word die-cut and behind the sentiments.

For extra good measure, I wrapped some metallic embroidery floss around the vellum panel too, which helped hold it in place.

Thanks for joining me today! Hope you’re inspired to do some nail polish marbling too. Warning: it’s addictive!

In the spotlight today is the sweet and talented, HEATHER HOFFMAN…

. . . . .

Good morning! Heather Hoffman here this morning to share my first Confetti Camera post with you! Since the theme of this time around is CASE-ing a card from another member of the Confetti Crew – I spent WAY too much time looking, thinking, and trying to narrow it down. I finally settled on this – almost the first Reverse Confetti project I pinned on Pinterest. This card by Amy Sheffer made me gasp out loud and stare the first time I saw it – and I still feel like I could stare at it for hours!

I changed mine up a bit for my version, but tried to keep the same light and airy feel with pops of color and sparkle that I loved about this one!

To begin with, I changed the location of my watercolor panel to fit the different stamp set I decided to use – brand new All About Ewe. I also changed the color of my watercolor background, going with a blend of greens and yellows instead of blues and greens  and adding some splatters as on Amy’s version. I liked the feeling of a pasture of green grass that it gave to ground my images!

I stamped and colored all of my images, then die cut them with the coordinating All About Ewe Confetti Cuts. Instead of stamping my sentiment under my scene, I stamped it above – then added some fun sparkle with some clear sequins sprinkled around.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! It’s so fun to CASE a gorgeous card and put your own spin on it! I hope maybe you’ll be inspired to give it a try sometime!
