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.

This week the Confetti Camera is zooming in on Confetti Crew member Dawn Easton!

Post Production Interview

What do you like best about this project?

I love that the Reverse Confetti stamps have gotten me to step out of my comfort zone and create CAS cards. Who needs designer papers when you can create your own backgrounds?!

Here I’ve used SPOOKY CUTIES and SPOOKY SENTIMENTS.

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

When it comes to Halloween I love to create using purples, oranges and greens. Rather than dark colours I went with a brighter colour scheme. I knew I wanted to use several different images and it’s always fun to mix and match!

What inspiration can others take from this project?

What I think others should take away from my project is how versatile Reverse Confetti stamps are. I often times mix and match several sets to create a card. It’s always so much fun! Making a background as I’ve done here or creating a small scene.

Describe/Share your stamping space.

Aqua Filing Cabinet

I’m currently in the process of setting up my stamping space again. Moving is always difficult but I enjoy decluttering my room and starting fresh in a new space. I have a picture of my filing cabinet that Brian picked up for me a few months ago. My dad painted it a pretty aqua colour and it’s perfect for all my cardstock!

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

Oh most definitely! If I don’t, then I’m yelling for Chloe to help me find my glue dots or something. I have a hard enough time finding things when they are right in front of me, let alone under a mess. Besides I find it easier to concentrate when it’s tidy.

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

Not sure that I can create a project without using my Big Shot and dies. Even the simplest of projects need a little something, right?

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

I quite often create 5 x 5 cards but they aren’t the easiest to find envelopes for. Plus mailing them cost a tad more so most often they are the ones that are hand delivered.

What is your favorite RC project so far? Why?

Oh my gosh….my favourite RC project….hmmmmm…..I love to create with RC stamps and I’ve missed stamping the past two weeks!

Looking back through my posts I would have to say it’s this one:

As I’ve said several times, the RC stamps are so fun to mix and match. That’s exactly what I’ve done here using three different sets: WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS and CELEBRATE CAKE.
