Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans!

We’re glad that you are joining us for this week’s 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.

This week the Confetti Camera is zooming in on Confetti Crew member SARAH GOUGH.

I love dies. As my SWEET TREAT TENT Confetti Cuts flew over to NZ, I started day dreaming about ways to get even more fun out of this already awesome die. Thinking about the oval, I thought it might be perfect as a speech bubble! I was so excited to try it out and love how it looks!

Here’s the simple how to:

concamSarahGoughTUTE (1)

Cut the Sweet Treat Tent – you only need the top portion, this is great for using up card scraps.

Trim off the top tab.

Decide which side you want the speech bubble to point – make an angled cut as long as you want your pointy bit.

Make a second cut, straight down.

Voila!

If you like, you can leave your panel edge straight. I wanted my corners to match up. I don’t have a corner punch this exact size, so I used a trick I often utilize with dies (especially when trimming borders to size)

concamSarahGoughTUTE (6)

Lay your panel on the die, making it as long as you want the panel to be.

Using your finger or a bone folder, rub over the die to create an impression in the cardstock.

Trim away on the lines and you’ll have perfectly matching corners!

I also made a panel for the inside of my card – this time I cut the Sweet Treat Tent once, then laid the panel back inside the die and carefully re-cut it, making sure to only run my cutting plates through enough to cut the oval again, then cranking in reverse to avoid cutting too far. I trimmed off the excess and had a fun double bubble panel!
