CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on August 07, 2014

Hello, Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

We have a super fun Confetti Camera here for you today!

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 video tutorial put together by the fun and talented, SARAH GOUGH

SarahIntroPic

Today I’m sharing a sweet little basket made from the Tag Me Too Confetti Cuts as well as the Double Edge Scallop Border. Here’s a little tutorial on putting these together and getting even more use out of your fabulous Reverse Confetti dies!

. . . . .

The response to the FABULOUS FLAMINGO set has been…well, FABULOUS! We just received a large order of the stamps over the weekend and they are almost sold out.  The coordinating Confetti Cuts sets are sold out.  Both are on order and I will update the Facebook page and send a newsletter when our stock has been replenished again.  Thank you all for your support and patience!

I have to admit that the above joke is nails on a chalkboard to me.  I remember someone telling it to me in first grade while we waited in line to get our school pictures taken and me rolling my eyes and thinking it was the worst joke ever.  I still think it’s a terrible joke.  So, what’s a girl to do when life hand you a joke like that?  Take that punch line and make cute stamps!

Introducing FRESH ‘N FRUITY and the coordinating FRESH ‘N FRUITY Confetti Cuts die set…

This simple notecard was created using the polka dot orange from the FRESH ‘N FRUITY stamp set, along with cuts from the FRESH ‘N FRUITY Confetti Cuts die set.  The panel that the oranges are mounted on is a combination of cuts from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts (previously released) and the new PRETTY PANELS: DIAGONAL STRIPE Confetti Cuts die sets.

This second card is bunches of fun and uses a sentiment along with the polka dot lemon/lime image from the FRESH ‘N FRUITY stamp set, along with the coordinating FRESH ‘N FRUITY Confetti Cuts die set.

Additionally, I used the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts and TAG ME Confetti Cuts die sets (both previously released).

Here’s a pic of the flamingo that was sitting next to me at lunch on Saturday…

As crafters, we take pride in giving handmade items to those special people in our lives.  That was the thought behind the latest addition to our KEY WORDS COLLECTION

SO VERY SPECIAL

SoVerySpecial250

Here are just a few ways you can build the sentiments in this set…

MixMatch

In addition to SO VERY SPECIAL, I’d also like to introduce you to a new CONFETTI CUTS die set that is sure to stay on your crafting table for a long time…

TAG ME, TOO…

TagMeToo

This is a big tag that is *so much fun* to use!

Here, I combined TAG ME, TOO with the SO VERY SPECIAL set to created a gift set of 4 tags…

Special1

Special2

Using all of the dies in this Confetti Cuts die set as well as dies from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts set, I created this tag…

TagMeToo1

My final card for today features the new SO VERY SPECIAL set along with the new CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set I introduced yesterday.  The scallop border is cut from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts (previously released).

CirclesNScallopsConfettiCuts

These is *a lot* of love put into this next card and I am so happy that I get to give this card to a friend in about a month.

While over the years I have given baby cards to many friends, this one is (so very) extra special.  This card is for my friend, Anne (and her husband).

A few years ago Anne, whom I have known and loved since the 4th grade, was diagnosed with cancer.  I can still see exactly where I was and how I felt when she said the “c word.”  She endured rounds of chemotherapy, radiation and, eventually, a stem cell transplant (from an anonymous donor).  She beat the odds (thank you, God!) and in just a few weeks time, she will be welcoming home a sweet baby boy (via surrogate).  Needless to say, this is a super special delivery!

SpecialDelivery

The bib was created with the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts.

I cut out the smaller of the 2 scallop circles and then used the smallest circle to take out the top portion, creating the bib shape.  I added white linen thread for detail (and cuteness!).  The heart is from the (previously released) LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

SpecialDeliverydetail

There is so much more inspiration to see using these stamps and dies that are releasing on July 8th!

I bet I have your attention now!  This picture made me giggle!

While raccoons can be quirky little rascals, they sure are cute, too!

And, that’s just why ROCKY RACCOON is the latest addition to our QUIRKY CUTIES line!

RockyRaccoon250

Rocky is a lot of fun to color and paper piece!   As I have mentioned before, even if you are not a colorista (that’s a word, right?) these images are a lot of fun to play with!

On this card, Rocky is front and center waving HELLO!  This card uses this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY.  (Click on the sidebar button for more details on how to play and win!)

RockyRaccon2

Can you tell that I love dimension?

RockyRaccon2.1

Our LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set has been very popular and I have developed a new line called PRETTY PANELS that are the perfect compliment to the large scallop rectangle included in that set.  On the card above, I used the PRETTY PANELS: DIAGONAL STRIPE Confetti Cuts backed with gray cardstock (cut from the rounded rectangle in the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts set) and layered it on top of the scallop rectangle from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

The card below used the PRETTY PANELS: CHEVRON Confetti Cuts.

In addition to the PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts, we also are introducing a circle set called CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS.  This set contains FOUR dies: 2 scallop circles and 2 circles.  All of them have a debossed detail on the inside.  The card above uses 3 of the 4 dies in this set: the 2 circles layered under Rocky, as well as the sewn scallop circle at the top of the card containing the sentiment.

Black lines indicate cut lines and gray lines indicate deboss lines.

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on June 19, 2014

It’s Thursday ‘Fetti Fans and it’s time for another fun installment of 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 how Reverse Confetti stamp sets are compatible with each other and each of the Confetti Crew members is picking two of their favorites to pair together on their project.

. . . . .

Today on Confetti Camera, the spotlight is on fun, friendly and super talented AMY KOLLING

Her Confetti Camera project…

6.19.14

I wanted to focus on the newest Color Challenge (link on sidebar) and the large booms from PETALS ‘N POSIES……my favorite RC set.  I decided to mask off my blooms while stamping.  What made this easy was to cut the coordinating Confetti Cuts with typing paper and use that.  I didn’t have to stamp and cut my mask because the dies are a pretty good match.  They are a bit larger than the stamps but it worked well!!  My sentiment was pieced together using 2 stamps from YOU MAKE ME SMILE……..I like how Jen included the large word “SMILE” and then many supporting words or phrases to compliment making it a breeze to stamp in multiple colors.

6.19.14#2

Now to focus on that scallop border down the left side.  The DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts is a brilliant die…..2 in one!!!  Because this die will cut a full length A2 size scallop, I needed to trim it down for my design but wanted it to look “finished”.  I die cut the scallop border and then placed it back into the die but at a shorter length and ran it through my machine cutting off the extra.  This makes a “finished” look to the other end of the scallop!

Tip:  Remember to use those dies in your stash for masks!
