CONFETTI CAMERA

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Thursday!

We have another great Confetti Camera for you today.

In this weekly (usually 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 showcasing our ink and cardstock in their favorite color palette.  This is a fun way to see what you can do with your Confetti Colors!
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 the talented, AMY KOLLING…

Hello Fetti’ Fans! Amy Kolling here for my take on the Color Me Mine challenge for Confetti Camera! I knew I wanted to do blue/aqua florals and add in some of Reverse Confetti pattern paper. My colors were Baby Blue, Navy Blue, Seafoam, RC Aqua, and Sand.
Using the Blooms ‘n Buds stamp set and coordinating Blooms ‘n Buds Confetti cuts, I stamped lots of flowers in different combinations using my color palette above and die cut. I stamped so many that it was hard to choose which ones to use but that means I have more for a card later!
After I arranged my blooms how I wanted them, I used Press ‘n Seal to pick up my arrangement for easy placement later. To a top folding card, I added the striped paper from Warm Heart 6×6 paper pad along with a foam backed, white die cut panel done with the Edgers Confetti Cuts. Picking up my Press ‘n Seal arrangment, I added Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue to my blooms and added my whole arrangement to my card. I added a simple Navy Blue die cut Hello Confetti Cuts as my sentiment and a few clear sparkling confetti to finish!

. . . . .

Welcome, ‘Fetti Fans! It’s Amy here with you today with the latest Confetti Camera theme – Color Me Mine. Loving all things nautical, I naturally adore Reverse Confetti’s Seaside stamp set which inspired my chosen colors. I’d originally intended to use Iced Aqua, Navy, Coral and Sand but decided to add in a happy sunrise in my design and added in Sunshine to round out my palette.

I started by creating the sunrise using the Sunburst Cover Panel Confetti Cuts and then added in ocean waves and a sandy beach. The Iced Aqua waves were created with the Wonky Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts, and the beach was created by tearing a piece of Sand Cardstock and then lightly sponging it with Sand ink.

I then stamped the images from Seaside and cut them out using the coordinating Seaside Confetti Cut dies. To create more dimension, I tucked them between the layers of the beach scene and finished with a stamped sentiment from Seaside in Sand ink.

I hope you’re inspired by my Color Me Mine palette and find a little crafty time to put it into action. Thanks for joining me for today’s Confetti Camera.

Supplies:

Seaside Confetti Cut
Sunburst Cover Panel Confetti Cuts
Iced Aqua Dye Ink

With summer drawing to a close  I was drawn to these bright, yummy colors I found on Pinterest…

Here are the Confetti Colors I chose for my card…

For my card, I created a tropical scene with a tasty, umbrella drink and cute little toucan bird hanging out on a pretty Hawaiian lei.  I can just smell the scent of fragrant flowers and coconut!

Confetti Camera

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy *Almost* Friday!

Today, we have a gorgeous Confetti Camera to share with you!

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 CASE-ing a card created from one of the other Confetti Crew members.  In stamping terms, CASE means to Copy And Stamp Exactly.  The Crew is taking a previously made card and making it new.  This is a fun way to see what you can do with your stamps and, I think, that it helps you grow as a creative person as it requires you to think outside the box a bit.

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 the sweet and talented, MELISSA PHILLIPS…

. . . . .

“Hi there!  Melissa Phillips here with my very first Confetti Camera.  I’ve selected this beautiful card from Laurie Schmidlin…I’ve been a fan of hers forever and ever and just love her work.

I loved the basic sketch of her card and built mine around that.  I was also drawn to her beautiful watercoloring and incorporated that behind my sentiment just as she did.

Like in Laurie’s card, I used a faith-based stamp set, Easter Blessings, on my card. To make my sentiment stand out I anchored it to a die cut Lacy Scallop Circles Confetti Cut, and then layered it over patterned paper.

 I loved Laurie’s use of the flowers from Blooms ’N Buds stamp set, and used them here on my card as well.  I stamped the detailed flower images on watercolor cardstock using watermark ink, and then heat embossed them using white embossed powder.

I then stamped the solid flower image over the top of my embossing powder and added a bit more color using my Zig Clean Color Markers.

This was such a fun assignment and I found it so inspiring to get to create something inspired by someone I admire so much!”
