Office Open + Confetti Camera

Greetings, ‘Fetti Fans!

The office is now back open after a fun and much needed road trip to visit some girlfriends in my old Houston area neighborhood.  Nothing like some girl time, chocolate sundaes and wine to refresh the soul!

It’s back to work today and we will be busy lil’ bees getting the orders placed over the last few days out the door and answering emails, too.  Also, there were *a few* boxes of stamps that we will be putting back into inventory today.  If you’re on a wait list, keep your eye out for the notification email…soon, very soon!

. . . . .

It’s Thursday and time for Confetti Camera!

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 use black, white and ONE other color.  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.

Up in the spotlight today is the sweet and talented, Amy Sheffer

Hello ‘Fetti Fans, what a great theme we have for this round of Confetti Camera: Black, White + One Other Color! I chose black, white, and gold — I just love the elegance of that combo, don’t you?

RCconfetticamera063016-1

I started by stamping one of the pineapple bottoms from Pineapples A Plenty and heat embossing it in gold. Next I die-cut the image with the coordinating Pineapples A Plenty Confetti Cuts die. I finished the pineapple by stamping the top in black, once on the original die-cut and a second time on a top-only die-cut, which I then popped up over the first one using foam tape.

RCconfetticamera063016-2

I placed the pineapple onto a panel of vellum that I spritzed with both gold and clear shimmer mist. The vellum is secured to the black and white striped panel with some adhesive behind the pineapple. I also tied some gold cord around both the striped paper and the vellum to help hold the two layers together. For a final touch, I used a gold ink pad to ink just a thin gold border around the perimeter of the striped panel. Everything is mounted onto a top-fold white card base with foam tape.

RCconfetticamera063016-4

Tip: Vellum is a wonderful component to add to monochromatic cards. Because of its translucency, the vellum creates another shade of whatever color it is placed on. Tearing the vellum, spritzing it, or heat embossing onto it just adds that much more interest!

Hi ‘Fetti Fans, welcome to another round of Confetti Camera!  I was excited to create a card using just black, white and one other color.  I had black, white and YELLOW on my brain, so that’s what I stuck with. I tried to wear those colors the other day, but my kids thought I looked like a bumblebee.  I quickly changed clothes. This was my chance to finally use those colors!

IMG_3937

I’m usually not a “clean and simple” kind of girl, but I kept this card that way, resisting the urge to add “just a little more”.  I stamped around the edges of a piece of white cardstock (the same size as my card base) with the SO STRIPEY stamp set and then topped it off with a white piece a little smaller to create the striped edge around my card.

IMG_3938

I cut a black circle from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts set and embellished it with the bright yellow HELLO Confetti Cut.  I added it to the card using pop dots and then centered the “friend” right below it from the FANCY WORDS Confetti Cuts.

IMG_3939

One thing about this being so sweet and simple, is that it makes it super easy to duplicate!  How fun would it be to create a set of them and just change the “hello” color!?!?!  What a cute gift set that would be!

Introducing…

BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE

BecauseofTheBraveProductGraphic

I really feel that there was a need for this kind of set in our product line.  Not only does it work well for the upcoming 4th of July holiday, but it is designed to extend far beyond that so that it can be used year round on a variety of different projects.

. . . . .

My first card today features the red, white and blue palette that works so well with this stamp set, along with the new SEEING STARS Confetti Cuts die set…

DSC_0110

The red stripes on the left side are stamped with the SO STRIPEY stamp set.  The main image panel is the pierced circle from the FLOWERS FOR MOM Confetti Cuts die set and I layered the sketched stars in a trio on top.  For a finishing touch, I added the button tied off with the new FIRECRACKER TWINE.

. . . . .

For my next card, I also paired the BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE stamp set with the SEEING STARS Confetti Cuts die set…

DSC_0106

I cut out several stars and placed them across my card and then stamped the “I Thank My Lucky Stars For You” sentiment in black under the stars…

As a finishing touch on this card, I scattered gold sequins and topped them with rhinestones.

I have a couple of projects to share with you today and then I am going to send you on your way to see all the Confetti Creativity that the Crew has for you!

First up is a project using the new BITTY BANNERS stamps and Confetti Cuts.  I paired it with the (previously released) YOU ARE A STAR Confetti Cuts and SO STRIPEY stamps for a fun, cute and easy lil’ treat…

I hot glued the stars onto paper straws that I cut down and added them into mini corrugated cups filled with coordinating Sixlets candies.  This would be such a great addition to a place setting for a birthday, graduation, wedding, etc.

As a finishing touch, I added the gold sequins.

These can easily be personalized with just a switch of colors…so many possibilities!

With the end of the school year just around the corner, I find myself wanting to create for my kiddos’ teachers.  I absolutely love the new ALL APPLES stamps and Confetti Cuts dies and I know that I will be reaching for them a lot for upcoming Teacher Appreciation and end of the year projects.

I used the new INSTA-FRAME Confetti Cuts die directly on my card front and added the black cardstock panel that I stamped the dashed lines on (from the RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW stamp set).

I love this sentiment!

Ok, now I am sending you on your way to see more new release goodies in action.  Enjoy the hop and all the Confetti Creativity along the way!
