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?
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.
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.
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!
