Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Thursday!

It’s an exciting day here in the del Muro household…it’s Meet the Teacher day at the kiddos’ school!  The kids are buzzing with excitement and I may just have a heel kick, too!  Here’s a fair warning of Back to School pics to be posted soon. *wink*

 . . . . .

And, here on the Reverse Confetti blog it’s time for Confetti Camera!


A little bit about 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 each of our designers will be coming up with a SET of something. You’ll see gift sets, card sets, pocket scrapping sets and much more this time around.

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 this week is the super talented AMY KOLLING.  I’m happy that I get to call her friend, too!


So for this round of Confetti Camera, we are showing off the theme “Set ’em Up!”  Since my kids just started back to school last week, I know I’ll be needing small gifts for the teachers here and there.  What a better time to whip up a set of mini cards for the kid’s teachers!

I started by die cutting a black cardstock “frame” using the Shakers ‘N Frames Confetti Cuts.  I love this set of dies and I probably won’t ever cut these 2 rounded squares apart simply because it keeps them evenly spaced for a perfect frame!  I’ve added the frame to a 3×3 white top folding card and trimmed the corners to be rounded like the frame.

There are several sentiments included in the Class Act stamp set, so I stamped these in Versafine Onyx Black ink inside the frame.  To finish these mini cards off, the apple was die cut using the Class Act Confetti Cuts with traditional primary colors and added to my card using foam adhesive.  As a final detail, a 6mm Peridot sequin was added to the edge of the leaf.

Now, you can’t give a set of cards without coordinating envelopes, can you?  Of course not!  I’ve stamped each envelope with stamps from Class Act.  For presentation, I’ve wrapped my set of 4 mini cards and envelopes with twine.  Now, it’s all ready to add to a gift basket for a handmade touch!
