I love Thursdays.

Wanna know why?

This is why…

I love this segment and the heart that the Confetti Crew puts into it!

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.

Today on Confetti Camera is the talented and fun, LEIGH PENNER

The theme for this round of Confetti Camera is “Everything Old is New Again.”

I thought it would be fun to go back several years on my blog to find an old card

that I made and CASE it.

 I decided to go back five years to April 2010, where I posted this card:

LPCC1

It was the card that I made for my husband for our 14th anniversary.

I trimmed out  some patterned paper (I don’t know where it’s from — sorry!

I wasn’t great about details like that on my blog in 2010.)

(Note: I should add that this was how I made cards before stamping and diecutting.

I got my first diecutting machine at Christmas 2010 and got into stamping more a few months later.)

Since I used some patterned paper on the original card, I decided to use some on my CASE.

I was looking through my patterned paper stash recently and came across this

gorgeous piece of patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye

and decided to die cut the flamingos from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set from it.

LPCC2

I used the Fabulous Flaming Confetti Cuts to die cut the flamingos and then stamped their eyes,

beaks and legs using the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set.

I stamped the sentiment (from In A Big Way) in melon berry ink.

As a finishing touch, I die cut the bottom edge using the Double Edge Scallop Border.

Thanks for looking!
