Hello and Happy Thursday from soaking wet Houston.

Fortunately, my lil’ neighborhood has not had issues with the flooding happening here, but once you get out of the neighborhood it’s kind of a mess.  Thanks for the emails and messages checking up on us!  And, to all our customers that are affected by this…stay safe and dry (I know you have a fun indoor hobby that can keep you busy)!

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.

Hello, Fetti’ Fans! It’s Jean Manis bringing you this week’s Confetti Camera Challenge. I’m sharing two cards featuring color blocking and die cutting. Color blocking is a great technique for CAS cards that adds color and style.

For the both cards, I used the base die from the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts set to cut cardstock rectangles. (The base die from the Treat Tote Confetti Cuts set would also work, as they are the same).

For the first card, I cut rectangles in five colors. Then, starting with the middle strip, I adhered the rectangles to a kraft card base. I cut the sentiment with the Hello Confetti Cuts twice out of white cardstock and adhered it to the card with dimensional adhesive. I used a die from the Shakers ‘n Frames Confetti Cuts set to cut the sequins.

For my second card, I used the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts base die to cut rectangles in five colors and adhered them to a lightweight white cardstock. I trimmed the panel and attached it to a white base to adding a stamped sentiment from the Lots to Say set.

With the color blocking technique, the possibilities are endless – it’s just a matter of changing colors! The rectangular die ensures that the blocks are precise and fit together!
