Hello, ‘Fetti Fans…

What a fun week it has been so far!  Don’t forget to mark  your calendars for June 5th when we start the COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI for the June 8th release!


. . . . .

It’s Thursday and time for 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 working on something a little different!  I have challenged them to  us black, white and only ONE other (main) color.  I think you are going to LOVE what you see!

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 very talented…Leigh Penner


This round’s challenge: Black & White & _______________.

So, in other words, create a project using only black, white and one other colour.

Now, for me, I have to admit, it was a bit of a challenge. While I normally always include black and white in some form on my cards, limiting myself to only one other colour was difficult.

But here’s what I came up with…



I started with a piece of black and white striped patterned paper as my base. I stamped my Fabulous Flamingo in pink onto its coordinating Fabulous Flamingo Confetti Cuts.




I stamped the legs from the flamingo directly onto my striped patterned paper.






For my sentiment, I stamped part of the “hope your day is as fabulous as you are” sentiment from Fabulous Flamingo in versamark and heat embossed it in white. Then, I stamped the last part of the sentiment in black.

Instead of “fabulous”, I decided to diecut the word “sweet” using the Lovey Words Confetti Cuts. I diecut it three times — twice from white cardstock and a third time from the leftover patterned paper I used, but I reversed the black and white. I stacked them together and adhered it to my card.
