CONFETTI CAMERA

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Thursday and time for another great CONFETTI CAMERA!

ConfettiCameraRCblog

A little bit about Confetti Camera…

In this weekly (Thursday) 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 each of our designers are working on Celebrations!  However, there is a little something different…I have challenged them to forego birthdays and to “think outside the card.”  I think you are going to LOVE what you see!

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.

In the spotlight today is our Kiwi pal, the very talented…Sarah Gough!

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, my thoughts turned to the gorgeous Rose Garden stamp set – and how great it would be to send a bouquet of roses that’ll last a little longer than real ones! With that thought in mind I made a card-in-a-box using lots of Confetti Cuts to create a garden of blooms celebrating Mother’s Day.

To create a box this size, I started with a 5×11″ piece of cardstock, scoring at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″ then again at 1.5″. Trim off a 1″ piece and set aside. Cut off the end of the cardstock (crosshatched in the photo) leaving a little tab and cut down the smaller scored lines to create flaps. Using the 1″ piece, create two or three inserts and adhere inside the box as shown (one of mine bent as I put it inside the box, this won’t matter in the long run). Your box will still fold flat, but will also stand upright with sections you can decorate with pop ups!

Using thin strips of acetate and glue dots, I stamped and cut lots of roses and leaves from Rose Garden using the Rose Garden Confetti Cuts. Some are adhered directly to the thin strips of cardstock, others are “floating” on acetate. As I fill the box, I fold it down to see how the flowers will layer when the box is flat.

I also used the Whole Lotta Happy stamp set, the Give Thanks Label Confetti Cuts and added borders to the flaps with the Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts. I used the Leafy Confetti Cuts to add extra leaves and the Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts for some sparkly accents.

When it’s all finished the card-in-a-box should lay relatively flat for easy mailing!

When I was growing up, my mom had a rose garden in our backyard.  I love the smell of the roses growing right outside of my room and the cut blooms that often were displayed on our kitchen counter.  I would have to that memories are a definite point of inspiration when creating with this new set…

ROSE GARDEN

Of course, we have a coordinating Confetti Cuts die set, too…

RoseGardenCC_ProductGraphic

The ROSE GARDEN Confetti Cuts die set has 2 additional greenery pieces for you to adorn your rose die cuts.

My first card today features the large open rose watercolored and die cut…

I stamped, cut and colored 3 of these blooms along with the line-art leaves to create this bouquet placed on top of the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts that is stamped with a sentiment from the ROSE GARDEN set.

I also topped off the roses with a little bit of shimmer using my Sakura Stardust pen.  This picture captures a few of the beautiful sparkles, as well as the watercolor detail…

For my next card, I wanted to keep it very clean and simple because it is a sympathy card.

I lightly watercolored the background with a soft aqua.  I then stamped the “with heartfelt sympathy” sentiment to the left and embellished with the ROSE GARDEN stamps and Confetti Cuts to the right.

The roses and leaves are stamped with dye ink and then detail/shadow lines were added with Copics…
