Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Thursday!

Welcome to 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.

Hi Fetti’ Fans! It’s Amy Kolling here today sharing my version of the “Everything Old is New Again” challenge. Since watercolor has taken over cardmaking, I thought I’d bring out an “old” product I used when I began stamping. Yes, I still have them!

When I first started stamping, Watercolor Crayons were all the rage. They were one of my favorite mediums to use to color using this simple technique……Watercolor Crayon Stamping. There is nothing more you need to do this technique except solid stamp image, water, watercolor crayons, and paper. You begin by coloring over your solid stamp image…..here I’m working with LOVE BLOOMS. This is key…….lightly spritz water over your stamp. You may need to practice a bit to see just how much water you need. Then stamp! I love the mini droplets of water look over your image once stamped!

I created my focal point by “impressing” the circle die, from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts, into a white panel of cardstock. After stamping my sentiment, from IN A BIG WAY, I began building my floral arrangement. To embellish my flower centers, I thought it would be fun to pull out my Crystal Stickles (I haven’t used it in years!). This panel was all mounted on a 1/2″ scored card front.

That’s it for me today! I hope this has inspired you to get out some of those “old” products and bring them to life again!!!
