Hello and welcome to this week’s Confetti Camera with Kelly Lunceford!
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 each of our designers are showcasing unique ways to use Confetti Cuts dies.
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).

For my card, I wanted to create an inlaid shaker element as well as some fun, coordinating shrinky dink confetti cuts to add as the shaking element in my window.  I think this bear looks adorable surrounded by bushels of juicy apples. To begin, I got to work creating all of the little apples for the shaker element. I stamped the apple images onto “Ruff and Ready” Shrinky Dink sheets using black ink. I also colored them with Copic Markers; some red and some green. I used my heat tool to shrink them lickety split! Once I had enough to fill my shaker window, I set them aside and got to work on the rest of the card.

 

I used the Stitched Rays Cover Panel and then did some ink blending for a sunshine-y background. I also added a strip of Fun Times pattern paper to the bottom to look like grass. Once those two elements were in place, I was able to die cut the larger bear using the Honey Bear Confetti Cuts. After that was done, I was able to stamp the outline of the bear using the Honey Bear stamp set onto the card base. I used the outline as a guide and then stamped the bear through the hole. You could also use a stamp positioning tool if you don’t feel confident in your placement.  I added a piece of acetate onto the back of the die cut panel using scor tape. I colored the bear on the card base using Copic markers. Once that was done, I was able to add the Shrinky Dink shaker elements over the bear and then carefully put the focal piece over the top using foam tape to secure the shaking pieces. I also added foam tape around the rest of the perimeter of the focal piece for stability. 

After I had the shaker element complete, I just had more fun adding the rest of the die cut and stamped pieces for my scene! I hope you will give these techniques a try, because they are so much fun!
