CONFETTI CAMERA

Woot, Woot…time for 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 cards completed inside and out 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 follow the same “theme” 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.

On camera today is the sweet, stylish and creatively savvy, LISA HENKE

Hello, sweet Fetti’ Fans! Lisa Henke here bringing you this week’s Confetti Camera Challenge.  I pulled out the adorable Quirky Cutie: MARLEY MOOSE for my Inside & Out card today. I loved this challenge because I admit I have been horrible about doing up the inside of my cards recently. I used to do it all the time.  I forgot how fun (and cute) it is. It adds just that little something extra to your card that the recipient is SURE to love……AND it’s another great way to get more mileage out your supplies.

I used the current Retro Sketch for my layout and added my favorite LET IT SNOW Confetti cuts done in vellum and topped with sequins. I hand cut a snowy hill and accented that with the CIRCLE GARLAND Confetti Cuts die.  I love this Marley Moose stamp set because it’s not just for holiday time. He can be used ALL winter long.  Here’s a closer look.

With all the flakes flying, I decided to give him a hat. I stamped him and the hat on X-Press it blending cardstock and colored them up with Copics. I then cut him out and popped him up with some foam dimensionals.

LH-photo 3-INSIDE

Here is the INSIDE of my card. It’s a great way to pull in colors you used on the outside of your card. So I layered up some coordinating cardstock for the base. When using a line art image, like those from the Quirky Cuties line, I like to add a partially inked image of the same stamp done in a colored ink. I felt like there was a lot going on on the outside of my card, so the INSIDE was the perfect place for the sentiment. I also tied in another vellum Let It Snow flake. Still simple and super sweet! There is also plenty of space for a handwritten note.

I have a lot to share with you today, as I just couldn’t put these new sets and dies down!

My first project today features the new DONUT YOU KNOW stamp set and DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts die set.  Can I just say that I LOVE that donuts are trending!!?

For the icing on this donut, I used white t-shirt paint, clear glass glitter and the “regular” sprinkles from the DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts die set…

My second project today features the new NORTH POLE WISHES stamps and NORTH POLE WISHES Confetti Cuts on a bag cut with the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  This was such a fun and easy project to make.  I can’t wait to make a few more for Christmas packaging…perfect for gift cards and small sweet treats!

One more project before I send you on your way to see all of the fun projects put together by the Confetti Crew and ‘Fetti Friend!

This last project features a tag cut from the (previously released) TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die set and embellised with a sentiment from the new SEASONAL SENTIMENTS stamp set and a layered tree cut from the new BRANCH OUT Confetti Cuts die set.  As you will recall from yesterday’s post, I was having a lot of fun with gold cardstock and I kept that going on this tag by using it with the trunk/branches of the tree.  It’s the perfect bling-y detail for this tag!

Heart cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

I love moose…meese? mooses?

My parents have had a home in Flagstaff, Arizona for several years and when we would visit we would see them in the woods, walking along the street and observing us from afar.  These animals are so beautiful and almost magical.  I remember one taking a drink from my aunt’s pool when I was younger, my eyes wide with amazement at just how huge these beauties are.  So, when it came time to draw inspiration for the latest Quirky Cutie, my mind went straight to moose…meese? mooses?  I digress.

Let me introduce to you, MARLEY MOOSE…

QCMarleyMooseProductGraphic

We’ve made Marley a bit “androgynous” and added a couple of details so that you can use the image as a boy or a girl moose.  I have both to share with you today.

First, Mr. Marley Moose…

Marley2

I stamped Marley on white paper and colored him with Copics and paper pieced his scarf, hat and the gift.  I then mounted him on a TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die cut and layered him on my card.  The snowflakes you see are also part of our new release and I think that you will have lots of fun playing with the different sizes…

LetItSnowProductGraphic

Detail shot…

Marley2detail

I know it’s a bit hard to tell from the pic, but on the “puff” of his hat, I used Stickles and flocking to give some dimension and texture.  The ribbon on the present has Diamond Glaze on it to give it the appearance of a satin bow.  The mistletoe image is also part of the MARLEY MOOSE stamp set and I have stamped in on the smaller solid circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS and colored it with Copics.

. . . . .

And now for Ms. Marley Moose…

MarleyGirl

Ms. Marley is also colored with Copics and partially paper pieced.  To make her a little more feminine, I attached the stamped/colored bow to her head.  I just love that little detail (hehe)!

Marley is mounted on the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts scalloped rectangle that is layered with our new PRETTY PANELS: MINI CIRCLE GARLAND

MiniCircleGarlandPPProductGraphic

The PRETTY PANELS: MINI CIRCLE GARLAND is the latest addition to the very popular PRETTY PANELS line that layers perfectly with the previously released LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts dies.  These panels are an easy way to add great detail to your cards and projects.

Detail shot…

MarleyGirl1detail

For a finishing touch, I added “falling snow” with sequins.  Can’t have a girly card without a little bling!

. . . . .

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

ProductDetails

QUIRKY CUTIES: Marley Moose

Say “Hello” to Marley. He’s the Winter Collection addition to the QUIRKY CUTIES family. Marley is fun to color and/or paper piece or even just stamp alone. This image can be created as a boy or a girl moose. Three sentiments, as well as a separate hat, bow and mistletoe image accompany Marley on this darling must have holiday set.

Designed by Olivia McDaniel

Set of 6 stamps

SIZE REFERENCE:

Moose image 1.73” x 3.27”

4”x4” stamp set

CONFETTI CUTS: Pretty Panels: Mini Circle Garland

Our Pretty Panels line of Confetti Cuts dies are stand-alone dies that can be used on their own, or can be paired with the (same size) rounded rectangle from the Class Act Confetti Cuts die set and are also made to be paired with the Love Note Confetti Cuts die set.

Set of 1 wafer thin dies

 SIZE REFERENCE:

2.17” x 2.63”

CONFETTI CUTS: Let It Snow

Now this is the kind of snow that I can love all winter long…one that doesn’t require a fleece lined coat! This snowflake set contains not just one, but three sizes of the same snowflake, making it easy to layer and create fabulously fun winter themed cards and projects.

Set of 3 wafer thin dies

SIZE REFERENCE:

Large Snowflake 1.91”

Small Snowflake 1.06”

NOTE: Many of our die sets are connected by thin wire and may need to be released from each other. To do so, tin snips are best, but these can often easily be taken apart by a gentle hand. Rough edges where the dies were attached may be sanded lightly (careful not to sand the cutting edge).
