Hello and Happy Thursday!

For those of you following along with my relocation updates…nothing terribly exciting of new.  Things went well on the inspection of our current home and we are awaiting the inspection on our to-be home.  I am getting excited and picked up some new things at Home Goods yesterday for our new home.  I’ll be sharing pictures of the new place as soon as we are there and settled.  I’ve become a pro at unpacking and making a house a home as soon as possible.  I can’t stand to have boxes laying around!

With all of the hustle and bustle of the move, you will see some of the Confetti Crew team members taking over posts here over the next several weeks.  I’ll be busy prepping for the move, as well as our March 8th release.

It’s Thursday and time for CONFETTI CAMERA!

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 a fun tip or technique 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 answer the same set of questions/show a tip 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.

Today the spotlight is on Confetti Crew member, AMY KOLLING

Here’s Amy’s fresh and fun Confetti Camera project using WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS, WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, CRUSHIN’, SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts, TAG ME Confetti Cuts and LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts…

Hi everyone!  I thought I’d show you a smaller than an A2 size card using the Sweet Treat Tent Confetti Cuts.  I love to get more use out of my dies and I especially like to use them in different ways!  The Sweet Treat Tent Die is such a versatile die…….I’ve used it on card fronts, as treat tents, and here as a card base!

I started with a usual fold at the top, A2 size card base.  Placing my folded card just below the cutting line at the top and securing with Washi tape, I ran this through my Big Shot as a normal die.  When it comes out of the die, it makes for a sweet little “skinny” card!  Now, I cut my card the full length which left a tiny score line in my card front.  You can either trim your card down or simply cover this score line like I did here.  Either way works!  I then stamped the card front with Whole Lotta Hearts with pigment ink.  Since GOLD has become popular, I splattered some Color Shine in Gold across my card with a small paintbrush.

Let’s talk about that foil paper……love this stuff.  I took several scrap pieces and placed them on the Sweet Treat Tent Die where I wanted them on my card front once cut and die cut.  I also die cut some Tag Me Dies and stamped a sentiment from Crushin’ in Delicata Gold Ink.  See that tiny gold ring around the tag hole?  Yep….Jen’s included a tag hole dies!  Lastly, I stamped an arrow stamp from Crushin’ randomly over my hearts in Delicata Gold Ink.
