Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy *Almost* Friday!

Today, we have a gorgeous Confetti Camera to share with you!

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 CASE-ing a card created from one of the other Confetti Crew members.  In stamping terms, CASE means to Copy And Stamp Exactly.  The Crew is taking a previously made card and making it new.  This is a fun way to see what you can do with your stamps and, I think, that it helps you grow as a creative person as it requires you to think outside the box a bit.

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 sweet and talented, MELISSA PHILLIPS…

. . . . .

“Hi there!  Melissa Phillips here with my very first Confetti Camera.  I’ve selected this beautiful card from Laurie Schmidlin…I’ve been a fan of hers forever and ever and just love her work.

I loved the basic sketch of her card and built mine around that.  I was also drawn to her beautiful watercoloring and incorporated that behind my sentiment just as she did.

Like in Laurie’s card, I used a faith-based stamp set, Easter Blessings, on my card. To make my sentiment stand out I anchored it to a die cut Lacy Scallop Circles Confetti Cut, and then layered it over patterned paper.

 I loved Laurie’s use of the flowers from Blooms ’N Buds stamp set, and used them here on my card as well.  I stamped the detailed flower images on watercolor cardstock using watermark ink, and then heat embossed them using white embossed powder.

I then stamped the solid flower image over the top of my embossing powder and added a bit more color using my Zig Clean Color Markers.

This was such a fun assignment and I found it so inspiring to get to create something inspired by someone I admire so much!”
