WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Happy Hump Day…the weekend is now in sight!  Do you have fun plans?  I’ll be burying myself in the studio in preparation for the JULY 8th release.  Mark you calendars as this release is gonna knock your socks off!

. . . . .

It’s Wednesday and time for WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS? It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between.

Today, I’m focusing on our current color challenge (yes, again…I LOVE IT and you should play along!).

Color challenges are such a great way to kick start your mojo.  Be inspired by the colors and let them lead the (creative) way!

Here’s this month’s color palette once again.  You can click on the pic to go to the post with the link list to upload your project for a chance to win!

A few months ago I got a new camera (thank you Target clearance!) and I’ve been playing around with different photography techniques.  I did some research and took some tips from a few sources to change the look of my photo set up.  I love the results and this might just be one of my favorite cards I have done with Reverse Confetti…

To create this card…

I started with a A2 card base.  For anyone wondering, I do not buy my bases.  Simply, it’s a piece of white cardstock cut in half and then folded.

I then cut a panel 1/4″ smaller on each side.  On this panel I added the large star strips from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set and sewed across each of them.

Here’s what the back of the panel looked like when I was done sewing and tucking the remaining thread on the back (I didn’t want to just snip off the ends)…

From there,  stamped the sentiment, plane trail and added the plane from HERE WE GO (cut from the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set, HERE WE GO).

Next, I added the stars with rhinestones popped up on dimensional adhesive.

Finally, I rounded the corners of the card base and large panel and adhered the large panel to the card base with dimensional adhesive.

Finally? Wait…”Something’s missing!” I thought.

The kraft strips were a complete afterthought, but I love what they brought to this project.  Something so simple and it was such a great finishing touch!
