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!”

Hello!  I want to be honest…….this was a hard challenge for me.  I don’t know why other than there was so much inspiration from the DT on the Reverse Confetti Pinterest boards!  Wow!  I had so many cards that I wanted to CASE but it came down to time and design.  This clean and simple card design by Amy Rohl was just what I wanted!
I started with the same frame from All Framed Up Confetti Cuts and added it with foam adhesive.  I changed out the focal points for the large butterfly (which was stamped in Ombre ink) and 2 smaller butterflies added to the side.  Butterfly Dreams is one of my favorite Reverse Confetti sets and works perfectly for ombre inking!
I added some clear sequins for some sparkle and one tiny clothespin to tie in with Amy Rohl’s card design.  It was fun to put my own take on Amy’s card!

Happy Thursday, ‘Fetti friends, I’m super excited about our Confetti Camera theme this month! I think there was a collective gasp over the internet the day that Heather Pulvirenti posted this card:

I’ve been wanting to CASE it ever since! In fact, I was so inspired, I made two cards for today.

For this first one, I simply changed out the colors, making this a winter card instead of holiday-specific. I love how the Reverse Confetti color spectrum is coming along. Putting together color combinations is easy! Here I’ve used Stone, RC Aqua, Iced Aqua, Royal Purple, and Cloud White.
The dies for the layered medallion are: smallest Lacy Scallop Circle in the back, circle from the Fresh ‘N Fruity Confetti Cuts set (the orange), small plain circle that’s included in the Lacy Scallop Circles Confetti Cuts set, and then the smallest snowflake from the Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts set.
For my sentiment, I’ve used Winter Words Confetti Cuts and the Winter Word Coordinates stamp set. The only other change I made was to add a layer of vellum behind the snowflake medallions. I stitched along the top and tore along the bottom. I think the vellum adds a nice frosty look to the card.
For my second card, I changed out the colors to the beautiful reds and pinks from the January release to make a Valentine card.
Instead of snowflakes, I used layered stitched hearts from the XOXO Hearts Confetti Cuts for my medallion centers.
The sentiment is from Crazy About You.
Thanks for joining me today! And a big thanks to Heather for the inspiration!

. . . . .

We have some pretty awesome stamps and Confetti Cuts dies to share with you today, too!

First up is the latest “critter” set and something tells me that this one is going to be a hit (especially since we have had so many requests for it!).

Squeeeeeel, let me introduce to you…

CURED

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts…

Before I get to my first card today, let me share with you another new Confetti Cuts die that is part of the January release…

ALL HEART COVER PANEL

For my first project today, I combined the CURED stamps and Confetti Cuts dies along with the new ALL HEART COVER PANEL

When I received the samples of the CURED set, I immediately sat down to watercolor the images.  I didn’t even have the new ink colors yet, but I got out by watercolor palette and colored the images that I used on the cards that I am sharing today.

I cut the ALL HEART COVER PANEL from white cardstock and then layered it on top of the white card base.  From there, I layered the images from the CURED set on top of a circle cut from the LACY SCALLOP CIRCLES Confetti Cuts die set.  The heart was added at the last moment because I thought that the focal image needed just that “little something”…

One more detail shot…

The finishing touch on this card is the Cappuccino TWINE that I wrapped 3x around the top and tied in a bow.

. . . . .

I pretty much *always* do a white card base.  I don’t have any rhyme or reason to why; it’s just something I started doing way back when and it’s just what I use as my base.  So when I realized just how cute it would be to use MIST cardstock as the base of this card, I may have twitched just a little.  I sure love how it came out though…

To create this scene, I used the rounded edge from the EDGERS Confetti Cuts die set and cut LIME GREEN cardstock.  From there, I added the fence adorned with the heart banner to the top of the “hill” and placed the piggy in a mud puddle.  The puddle is from the WEATHER IT TOGETHER Confetti Cuts die set…

The clouds are also from the WEATHER IT TOGETHER Confetti Cuts die set and I added a button tied off with Cappuccino TWINE.

 . . . . .

One of the things that I love about paper crafting is creating cute lil’ gifties.  With that in mind, I set out to create the perfect (mini) gift box and some fun coordinating Confetti Cuts dies to go with it…

GOODIE BOX

GOODIE BOX ADDITIONS

I created this trio using the GOODIE BOX and GOODIE BOX ADDITIONS Confetti Cuts…

You’ll notice that on the box, two of the flaps are just a bit longer than the other two.  This is so you can (more) easily close the box using a clip, like I did here…

Each side of this box is about 1.74″

This box is cut from the new PIGGY BANK cardstock.  The front of the box is embellished with cuts from the GOODIE BOX ADDITIONS Confetti Cuts (in CLOUD WHITE, FLAMINGO & SALSA).  The top of the box is clipped together with a mini clothespin that has a sparkly pipe cleaner bow…

This next box features a window created with the GOODIE BOX ADDITIONS Confetti Cuts.  The box is cut from FLAMINGO cardstock and the window frame is cut from SALSA.  To close this box, I simply tied a gingham ribbon and tied it on top…

The 3rd box in the trio is cut from ROSE cardstock, tied off with a pink ribbon that has a tag (created with the GOODIE BOX ADDITIONS Confetti Cuts) attached with Maraschino TWINE

 . . . . .

You’ve gotta see what the Confetti Crew has come up with using these fun new products.  You may even see a couple more new products along the way, too!  Don’t forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way to have a chance to win a gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store!

CONFETTI CAMERA WITH DIANE

Hello, Diane here with a card for this week’s Confetti Camera feature!  Today I’m doing a CASE of a beautiful holiday card made by our fearless leader, Jennifer del Muro!

Her card…

https://reverseconfetti.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/DSC_0499-1.jpg
Here’s my New Years take on Jen’s Christmas card.

I used GREETINGS FRAME Confetti Cuts and NAVY BLUE Card Stock to make the frame for my card, inserting some white glitter card stock in the thin strips around the edges.  I changed up the the die cuts and sentiment on my card using the glasses and sentiment from CLINK Confetti Cuts, which I cut from the white glitter card stock.  I used the small greenery and berry dies from LEAFY WREATH Confetti Cuts to decorate my glasses.

For the background behind the glasses I used patterned papers from the WARM HEART 6X6 Paper Pad.  I added some clear sequins above the glasses, don’t they look like champagne bubbles?!  Happy New Year, everyone!
