Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s time for 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 cards completed inside and out from each of our designers. A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such on 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.

On camera today is the ever-so-talented and very sweet, LAURIE SCHMIDLIN


Hi there, it’s Laurie here! I am seriously loving the theme of this Confetti Camera! I

will admit to hardly ever stamping on the inside of my cards, but when I

do I absolutely love it! I need to remember to do it more often…it

just makes the card even more special!

 Old Friend by Laurie Schmidlin

One of my favorite things about this new LOVE BLOOMS set is how I can

create a detailed looking card in a very short amount of time! Using the

coordinating LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts, I cut out the flowers and then

popped them up for some added dimension. Because the papers that I

chose to use are more on the dark side, I wanted to lighten things up

just a little by stamping the LOVE BLOOMS outline flower stamp using

white ink.

 Old Friend (inside) by Laurie Schmidlin

For the inside, I carried over several of the design elements from the

front. I stenciled some stripes on, and then stamped the sentiment

using a black pigment ink. I had a small scrap of the patterned burlap

paper that I used on the front left over, so I added it along with some

more stamped and die cut flowers. I didn’t want to add too much bulk to

the inside, so instead of rhinestones I added glitter to these flowers.

When I do stamp on the inside, I rarely leave room to write. I will,

instead, write my note to the recipient on a blank piece of paper so

that they will be able to reuse the card if they want to! That also

frees me up to stamp as much as I want to on the inside without feeling

limited! Hee!
