Howdy ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Hump Day!
We have a very special WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS to share with you today.
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 super clever way to “sprinkle” some fun into your cards and projects!

Hello ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy here today, with two fun ways to use your DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts sprinkles: in a shaker and to spell out letters!
I started by cutting three scalloped rectangles from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts for the shaker: red card stock for the top layer, acetate for the window layer, and a piece of designer paper for the background layer. On the top layer, I cut out a rectangular opening using the rounded rectangle from CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts. I used foam adhesive to sandwich my shaker layers together and filled the shaker with lots and lots of DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts sprinkles in rainbow colors.
For the sentiment (from DONUT YOU KNOW), I stamped in black ink on white card stock, then adhered more of those die-cut sprinkles on the sentiment panel, so it looks like the word “sprinkled” was spelled out of sprinkles. I won’t pretend this isn’t a tiny bit tedious, but I like doing stuff like this, and I think the end result is so worth it! What worked for me as adhesive was to squirt out a drop of matte multi-medium, then pick up each sprinkle using a pick-up tool, touch it lightly to the multi-medium, and then place it on the sentiment.
I die-cut the sentiment panel first with the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set, so that it would fit within the shaker frame, then cut the bottom notch using TAG ME Confetti Cuts.
I kept the background fairly simple to keep the focus on the sentiment shaker: two colors of twine, a white dry embossed background panel, plus some vellum and a tiny strip of designer paper. The embossed stars are coated with a clear Wink of Stella pen for some extra sparkle.
Birthday or not, I hope your day is sprinkled with lots of fun!
