Howdy ‘Fetti Fans!

Happy Thursday and welcome to the latest 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, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from throwback projects from each of our designers.  I have been stamping for a long time and I have seen things come and go and then come around.  A primary example of this is shaker cards.  We’re taking a look back to those “way back when” projects and breathing new life into them.

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.

I’ve had this great big jar of UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) for a while and thought I’d do a flashback to the Cracked Glass Technique!

I used the thanks stamp from Circle Sentiments.  I stamped and used the coordinating Scalloped Circle Confetti Cuts.  With the die cut sentiment flat on a piece of scrap paper, I pounced my embossing pad on it.   I loaded up the circle with UTEE while it was in my embossing tray.  I heat set and while it was still hot, I loaded up the circle again with UTEE {I did it a total of 3 times}.   
 
Here’s a photo of the triple embossed sentiment circle:
I popped it in the freezer for a couple minute and when I took it out, it was curled.  No worries because the next step is to literally bend the piece until you hear it crack/snap.  I did it a couple of times which then makes the circle ‘flat’ again.  I inked up the cracked piece with brown ink and wiped it off with a clean towel.
 
I incorporated the circle into my card with the July SFYTT as the inspiration!

I distressed the edges of all the card panels with the same brown ink that I used on the sentiment piece.   I also used a flag from the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts.

That was a fun flashback technique for me.  I think that it adds so much interest to my card!  Have you tried the Cracked Glass technique recently?  I would love to see how you would incorporate it in the July SFYTT:
