CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on September 04, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!

We are on the cusp of sneak peeks for our new release happening September 8th.  I so excited to share the new products and projects with all of you!

NewReleaseSept

. . . . .

It’s Thursday and time for another super awesome 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 the fabulously fun and talented, STACEY SCHAFER

Hey there, ‘Fetti Fans!

Stacey here today with this week’s Confetti Camera…bringing you Anything But a Card/Tag!

There’s nothing like some fabulous Reverse Confetti to get you in the mood to try something new!

I’ve collected a few pocket scrapbooking items this summer in hopes of beginning my very first album using this method!

Here are some closeup shots of the Reverse Confetti embellished pocket cards in my 6 x 8 layout!

Hello Pumpkin Pocket Card

I stamped the FOREVER FALL pumpkin and stem twice…once on the card and then again on a separate card and then fussy cut to prop up a bit for some dimension.   The FOREVER FALL sentiment, Hello Pumpkin, was stamped with black ink to accent the upper corner of the card, leaving plenty of room for a photo!

 hello pumpkin card

 Label Me Pocket Card

A LABEL ME CONFETTI CUTS die cut and twine bow were attached with a small staple to keep this card nice and simple.

 label me card

A Grateful Heart – FALL Pocket Card

Partial FOREVER FALL sentiments and the acorn were stamped for this fun card!  I fussy cut the acorn and propped it on a TAG ME CONFETTI CUTS banner.

Today on Confetti Camera we have a project from the uber talented, KATHY MARTIN

KathyMartinIntro

Hey Confetti Fans! I’ve got a colorful happy card to share with you today using the LABEL ME and LET’S CHILL stamp sets along with the LABEL ME and LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts.

140514-Hey-Sweetie-II

Once I decided on these yummy popsicle stamps and polka dotted papers, I ran with a circle theme. To create this card I first cut a white piece of card stock to 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ and folded it in half for my card base. Then I cut the black background paper to 5 1/4″ by 3 3/4″, added a few die cut circles in it and attached it to the card base with foam mounting tape to for dimension. With more foam tape I layered on the popsicles and sentiments.

140514-Hey-Sweetie-Detailst

Finishing touches include a little craft string bow and enamel dots. Notice how the dots are partially tucked under the background paper? This accentuates the layers. Yummy!

Joni just took my breath away with this watercolored PETALS ‘N POSIES card (also using BEAUTIFUL BANNERS and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts).

Stacey checked in with her “artsy” side for this beautiful watercolored card using COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS and TAG ME Confetti Cuts.

Lisa is shooting for the stars with this crazy cool card using WINNING, OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts, DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts and TAG ME Confetti Cuts

Only Leigh would think to make flowers into stars (so clever!).  I love this card using ALL ABOUT YOU and with PETALS ‘N POSIES.

Get ready for your jaw to drop!  This giftie using LABEL ME, LABEL ME Confetti Cuts, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and SO STRIPEY from Sarah is so crazy cute!

Beep! Beep!  Cute card from Kathy cruising by using HERE WE GO along with coordinating HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts.

Shore do love this card from Amy using HAPPY HARBOR and SO STRIPEY.

5.29.14

What a fun card from Lisa using lots of great patterns along with the PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set and PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts.

Susan’s trendy gold stripe notebooks (found at Target in the dollar section!) are perfectly adored with flowers from PETALS ‘N POSIES (and coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts), WHOLE LOTTA DOTS, sentiment from YOU MAKE ME SMILE and additional die cuts using TAG ME Confetti Cuts and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts.

Stay tuned this weekend for a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY coming June 1st!

Made you smile!

Our first set reveal today is the latest addition to our KEY WORDS COLLECTION that features a “key word” that you can mix and match to build a variety of sentiments.

Introducing YOU MAKE ME SMILE, featuring the key word SMILE…

YouMakeMeSmile300

Here’s how you can combine the key word with the various other sentiments…

MixMatch

I had a lot of fun in the studio with this set.  It’s really easy to bring a card together in minutes using this set.  The best part about it is that I know these creations will put a smile on the recipients face!

My first card features not only the new YOU MAKE ME SMILE stamp set, but also the new DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts die that cuts out three different width wavy lines at once.

DoinTheWaveProductGraphic

Smile1

I cut out the wavy lines in each color of the rainbow and then adhered them at an angle on my card base.  The heart is cut out with the large heart die from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

Smile1_detail

. . . . .

This second is just as full of color as the first (I guess that is what makes me SMILE), but with a few more layers…

Smile2

I stamped the key word SMILE in colors that coordinated with the pattern paper that I had chosen and then added the “happy looks good on you” sentiment along the side of the right panel.  The scallop edge was created with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die (love this die!).  As a finishing touch, I added the white enamel dots around the sentiment…

Smile2_detail

. . . . .

As paper crafters, we are always making little gifties and cards for someone special.  From this idea, the new stamp set and coordinating Confetti Cuts were born.

Introducing, LABEL ME…

LabelMe300

LABEL ME Confetti Cuts…

LabelMeConfettiCutsProductGraphic

I have to admit, that these next couple of projects have been my favorite to create for this release.  Of course, give me another hour or two in the studio and that all could change!

First up is a card that isn’t just a regular card.  When I sat down with my notebook to joy down and sketch out ideas I kept thinking about doing a “tab tuck card” (YouTube tutorial video HERE), but I wanted to make it a little different than I had in the past.  What’s a girl to do?  I made a card on top of a card base…

BirthdayCard

In the above photo, you can also see the wavy line cut from the new DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts, as well as the aqua panel stamped in stripes from the SO STRIPEY stamp set.  Yes!…the stripes coordinate with the stripes on the label stamp.  These are the things I think about when creating new sets.  Gotta love being able to coordinate and mix ‘n match your stamps!

The stars on this card were cut from the new OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set (featured yesterday) and topped with sequins and rhinestones.  The flag ended panels that you see are the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.

BirthdayCard_side

The tab, created with the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts…

Opened up…

. . . . .

I was having so much fun with these colors that I decided to keep them around to create these fun lil’ gifties…

Bags

In addition to the new LABEL ME stamps and Confetti Cuts, I used WHOLE LOTTA DOTS on the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set, the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die and the small heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set (adorned with a matching enamel dot)…

There is so much more to see from the Confetti Crew!  Be sure to leave a comment on each stop along the way for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate or even THE ENTIRE RELEASE!
