on July 18, 2014

Hello and Happy Friday, ‘Fetti Fans!

The weekend is just about here…YAY!  I am hoping to get a little time in the pool and soak in the sunshine.   I {heart} summer!  Although, Houston is giving me a deeper love for air conditioning!

Since it’s Friday, it’s time for the WEEK IN REVERSE where we take a peek at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week.  If you missed it, be sure to check out THIS post with tons of fabulously fun inspiration for the new color challenge.

I just ove how she made a flower from the lemon and orange!  That gives new meaning to the “When life hands you lemons…” phrase!

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on July 17, 2014

Hey ‘Fetti Fans!

The weekend is in view…wahooo!

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 how Reverse Confetti stamp sets are compatible with each other and each of the Confetti Crew members is picking a few of their favorites to pair together on their project.

. . . . .

Today on Confetti Camera we have a project from the very talented, JONI ANDAYA

JoniIntroPic

Hello Joni here, for my card I used the FABULOUS FLAMINGO, FABULOUS FLAMINGO Confetti Cuts, PETALS ‘N POSIES, PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts, and the DIAGONAL STRIPE PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts…

thanksAB-rc

I wanted to create another look for the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set. For my flamingo, I created a sorta scarf look using vellum with the sentiment “Thanks A Bunch” from PETALS ‘ POSIES (flowers and leaves cut from coordinating Confetti Cuts die set).

thanksAB2-rc

This will also work for holiday cards, as the image can easily change with different colors we can change the scarf with red vellum or red cardstock instead; I think that would be festive. I really like the scarf look I hope you agree.

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).

This set could not be more fun…and fabulous!  Have you noticed the flamingo trend?  They are everywhere!  I’ve seen swimsuits, notebooks and pattern paper covered with these fabulously fun pink birds.  My daughter and I even have matching flamingo flip flips!

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

I also used the large and small scallop circle from the new CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set for added elements, as well as the new TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die set.  For a finishing touch, I added layered sequins for a “splash” of bling.
