Howdy, Friends!

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.  You’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration, as well as get to know each designer a little better through some interview questions that we have prepared.  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 until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member.

. . . . .

Before we jump into the CC post, just a quick reminder that we want to see YOUR Reverse Confetti creations!  Link ‘em up on Monday’s ‘Fetti Finds link list (new link list each Monday).  There’s a find-it-fast button over on the sidebar.  **For this link list only: ‘Fetti Finds will be announced Sunday and the ‘Fetti Fave will be announced Monday**

Post Production Interview

What do you like best about this project?

My favorite thing about this card is the unexpected color scheme.  More often than not, cards/projects centered around a pumpkin theme are going to include colors that tend to have more of a fall vibe.  I like the pop of pink and green on navy!

What was your process on making this project? Did you have a starting point (color, inspiration, sketch)?

The only thing I had my heart set on when creating this card was the sentiment.  I love the “hello pumpkin” sentiment from the Forever Fall stamp set! The font is super cute, and I’m a sucker for the coordinating pumpkin.  I wanted the sentiment and pumpkin image to take center stage, so I opted for a very CAS design.

What inspiration can others take from this project?

This is a toughie! I would have to say if anything, don’t be afraid to step outside the box and try new color combos.  You never know, you might just be (pleasantly) surprised!

Describe/Share your stamping space.

HP Space

My craft room wears a lot of hats, it also functions as our office, extra storage and general catch-all.  We moved into our house 7 1/2 years ago, and always had the intention of doing something fun with the space.  Unfortunately, that has yet to happen! Invariably, something always comes up that needs our attention (like our surprise bathroom remodel), so that room has been a little neglected.  It’s the only room in our house that has yet to even be painted! Lol… So rather than blind everyone with the crazy amount of clutter and old white walls, I’m sharing a pic of my itty bitty stamping area. (Ha!)

Do you have to clean your desk before starting a new project?

I do normally try to put things away between projects.  With such a tiny amount of space, I can’t afford to give up any more real estate!

What is your must-have tool? Why do you like it so much?

Hmm… I think my favorite tool would probably have to be my heat gun.  I have been on a huge heat embossing kick lately, so a fully functioning heat gun is a must.

Do you always make A2 sized cards? If you deviate from the standard size, what favorite size to make?

No, not always. I also like to make 3 1/2 x 5 cards (today’s card), as well as 4 x 4 cards.  It helps break up the monotony.

What is your favorite RC project so far? Why?

My favorite so far would probably have to be this card:

Heather

It just makes me happy!

This card features PEACOCK PRETTIES, DREAM IN COLOR and WHOLE LOTTA DOTS
