LAST DAY OF THE YEAR

Howdy ‘Fetti Fans and Happy (almost) New Year!

Many take this day to reflect on the year past.  It’s been a good one, indeed.  However, there isn’t too much time to reflect as I have a lot to prep for in the upcoming weeks.  We are so excited for our next release in which we will be release a new product…one that no one else has.  How’s that for a little teaser?

Today, we have a special year end project for WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS.

First, 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 Confetti Crew member, Amy Sheffer, has a fun little way to make confetti and use it on a card.

How about a little confetti to ring in the New Year? Did you know, the little star cut-outs from the Stars Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts die make perfect confetti? Give it a try!

For today’s festive card, I filled a tiny glassine bag with silver and gold stars. The bag is embellished with some loops of silver thread and a silver star that I cut with the Oh My Stars Confetti Cuts die. The sentiment is a combination of the word “celebrate” from Beautiful Banners and numbers from Lighthearted Letters to make the year 2015.

With metallics being super trendy right now, the traditional silver, gold, and black New Year color combo is extra fun to design with. The narrow black and gold striped washi tape from K & Co. was perfect to help frame the card’s focal point.

I stamped an exploding confetti background using an image from Winning and heat embossed it in gold for extra shine. Along the bottom, I added a subtle white-on-white Circle Garland Confetti Cuts die-cut for a little extra interest.

Happy New Year to you and yours! May all your troubles during the coming year be as short as your New Year’s resolutions! (wink!)
