CONFETTI CAMERA

Hey, hey, ‘Fetti Fans!

Time for CONFETTI CAMERA…throwback style!

ConfettiCameraRCblog

A little bit about 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 throwback projects from each of our designers.  I have been stamping for a long time and I have seen things come and go and then come around.  A primary example of this is shaker cards.  We’re taking a look back to those “way back when” projects and breathing new life into them.

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). To see previous Confetti Camera post, simply click on “Confetti Camera” under the categories link on our sidebar.

Today on CONFETTI CAMERA, we have the sweet and oh so talented, AMY SHEFFER

Hi ‘Fetti Fans! It’s Amy S. here today with my take on our “Everything Old Is New Again” theme. I went back to the beginning of my blog (2007-2008) to remind myself of some of the things that were trendy back then, and picked out the altered binder clip photo holder for today’s project. The binder clips are super simple to decorate, and make such cute little display stands!

 RC_confetticamerabinderclip_1-1

I started by covering a jumbo binder clip with patterned paper from the Simple Stories I Am collection. Next, I accented with a white card stock scalloped border cut with the Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts die, some turquoise twine, and a layered felt flower die-cut with the Petals ’N’ Posies Confetti Cuts dies. I tied some black and white baker’s twine around the “arms” of the binder clip, then accented with wood veneer hearts.

 RC_confetticamerabinderclip_1-2

RC_confetticamerabinderclip_1-3

Instead of displaying a photo, I created a motivational display piece. I stamped the quote, from Shine From Within, in pink ink onto a cobblestone pattern from the Simple Stories I Am collection, layered it onto some other complimentary patterns from the same collection, and accented with clear sequins, a vellum Double Banner Garland, a white linen thread bow and another wood veneer heart. The three layers of patterned paper are nice and snug in the binder clip, but since they’re not adhered, it’s super easy to swap this out for a photo (or a recipe card or a place card or whatever else you can dream up!).

 RC_confetticamerabinderclip_1-4

That’s it for me today! I hope you’re inspired to breathe new life into something “old” too!

CONFETTI CREATIVE HOP

By admin
on December 08, 2014

Hello and Happy Monday!

It’s the 8th of the month and, as you know, we hop on the 8th of every month.  Since this month is  a non-release month, we “just” have some fabulous Confetti Creativity to share with you.  With the holidays knocking at our front door, we thought it would be perfect to showcase Reverse Confetti products in a hop that features them as part of PRETTY PACKAGING!

You’re at the first stop along the hop.  In case of a break or if you detour, there is a full list of Confetti Crew members and ‘Fetti Friends hopping today later in this post.

Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win!  Comments are open until Wednesday at midnight CST and a winner will be announced on the WEEK IN REVERSE post on Friday.

. . . . .

Let’s get this party started!

Awhile back, I bought a bunch of flat kraft sacks with the intention of filling them with card sets, cookies or embellishments (yes, my mind is all over the place like that!).  I love having these in my stash and they made the perfect base for my project today.  They’re plain, so it’s a great place to start and put your personal touch!

For this project, I layered a doily, a red TAG ME Confetti Cuts die cuts along with a panels cut from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set…

PrettyPackaging1

The sentiment is from the SEASONAL SENTIMENTS stamp set and I embellished it with leaves (PETALS ‘N POSIES) and a heart (LOVE NOTE).  Of course, since I love a little bling on each of my projects, I added some sequins and rhinestones.

PrettyPackaging3

The top of the red tag is topped with chevron ribbon (Hobby Lobby, I think) and linen thread which I left long and let dangle.

PrettyPackaging2

Although there are a few layers on this project, it really came together quite quickly and could easily be mass produced if needed/wanted.  I’m not one for mass producing, but when I am giving to a certain group of people (like teachers or neighbors) I like everything to be similar.  It keeps me from having to reinvent the wheel each time and it keeps everything equal.

. . . . .

I don’t want to keep you here to long, as there is so much more to see on this hop!

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on November 13, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!  We’re pretty excited here today as we start the newest round 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 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.

Today on Confetti Camera we have my bestie and a super talented stamper, SUSAN LILES

SusanIntroPic

Well, today is my turn to have the spotlight for our new Confetti Camera theme, Inside and Out.

 It’s not a new idea to complete the inside of your card, but it’s one that isn’t hardly thought of once the card front is finished.  I know whenever I show my mom a completed card I’ve done, she always wants to open it to see what’s inside!  (Usually nothing.)

 DSC03154

A little about my card:  I used the Fabulous Flamingos stamps and Confetti Cuts for the main focus of my card.  The greeting is from the Lots to Say set.  I had a little fun making everything off-kilter and I used several other Confetti Cuts dies to finish off my embellishing–the Double Edge Scallop Border, a flower from the Petals ‘n Posies set, and a couple of hearts from the Love Note Confetti Cuts.  I love how everything is nestled around and on top of the large scallop circle from Circles ‘n Scallops!  The inside of my card, carried the same theme, but I used the Sweet Thing set for the stamped sentiment.

The inside…

 DSC03156

I have to say that taking the time to do this extra step was super simple, as I already had everything on my desk to do it.  It’s a great way to use up those scraps and extra Confetti Cuts that always seem to be hanging around, waiting for a “home”.  (And my mom was thrilled to see the inside finished out this time!)

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on October 21, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!

I have to admit that most times I create just to create.  Those projects go into my stash to be used later.  However, when I create with a certain person/event in mind, I have so much fun.  That was the case with this card that I made for my hubby’s cousin’s upcoming wedding.

BestWishes

Flowers from the PETALS ‘N POSIES stamp set, along with the coordinating PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts were an obvious choice, but I decided to do a slightly non-traditional color palette for this fun couple.  The sentiment is from the IN A BIG WAY sentiment stamp set and I love how it takes center stage here (on a debossed circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS).

Stop the presses…I got technique-y again.  I had so much fun with embossing paste the last time I used it, I went ahead and reached for it again to create the textured chevron background on the white panel. (Sorry, I don’t know who made the stencil, as it was a find at a craft show with no label).

I put the finishing touches on it with a few sequins…since every wedding card should have a little bling!

Detail shot…

BestWishes_detaill

Guess what?  I had so much fun with the embossing paste again that I made another card.  I’ll be blogging that tomorrow, along with how I took another “technique-y” step with it.
