Hey ‘Fetti Fans!

I am ready for this weekend to begin…are you?  This weekend a few girls from the Confetti Crew are making their way down to Houston for CKC!  Reverse Confetti will be doing Make ‘n Takes at The Little Blue House booth #500.  If you are planning to be at the event, be sure to stop by and give us a big hug!

. . . . .

It’s Thursday and time for another great 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 a fun tip or technique 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 answer the same set of questions/show a tip 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.

3) For this round we are focusing on ABC (anything but a card) projects.  Keep your eyes peeled for some fabulous ways to use your Reverse Confetti stamps!

Today on Confetti Camera we have a great home decor project from the super sweet and ever so talented, LISA HENKE

I always get excited to share on the Reverse Confetti Blog. Today I’m showing you how easy it is to use the great stamps and Confetti Cut dies to make a burlap frame for your home. Yep, I said home decor….don’t freak. It’s just like working on a card, but on a little larger space. To me, that means you get to add some extra little pretties to fill in the spaces.

I started by covering a 6×6 canvas frame with burlap. It’s a NO sew project, just use a strong adhesive, like Scor-Tape to secure the burlap to the back of the frame.

I start with a focal point. Today, I used the FABULOUS FLAMINGO stamp set for my inspiration. I just love the beautiful sentiments included in the set. I then began layering. I pulled out TAG ME, TOO, CIRCLES ‘ N SCALLOPS and the banner piece from TAG ME. I cut all my pieces, stamped the sentiment, and decided to add some black accent to the banner piece. The trendy diagonal stripe from SO STRIPEY was perfect for the job.

Once I had my focal point complete, I moved outward from there adding bits and pieces of handmade embellies. It’s easy when you have such pretty Confetti Cut dies to work with. I die cut plenty of flowers with PETALS ‘N POSIES and two FABULOUS FLAMINGOS. I like to use papers from within the same paper pad, that way I know they will look great together.

After I have all my pieces cut and stamped, I layered them up and place them on my frame where I think I want them. I take a step back and make sure I have a good balance of embellies. Then I adhere the pieces down and added the sequins. The last step was to add the ribbon to hang the frame.
