SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY CONTINUES

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I was fortunate enough to have a girl’s weekend in Waco visiting Magnolia Market (from the show, Fixer Upper).  It was a much needed getaway after a very trying first half of the year.  Here’s a few pics from our adventure…

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Hi there, Amy S here today with a new Reverse Confetti Wednesday in the
Works video. This week, I’m using the Leaf Lattice Stencil to create
some beautiful ink-blended backgrounds.

I’ve created two cards, same design, just different colors and sentiments.
This first one blends Flamingo and Buttercup in the background. I’m
really liking the light touch you get with stencil brushes, or in this
case, an inexpensive make-up brush (thank you Laurie Willison for that
money-saving tip!). I find they have a lighter touch all the way around, so
your ink blending can be super light (or just keep adding for more
saturation and intensity). Also, I find there’s less pressure on the
stencil, so it doesn’t shift during the ink blending.

The *Round Top Tag* with the window cut out makes a great neutral layer on
the card and is the perfect way to frame a stamped Simply Sentiments
sentiment.

I added a stamped, colored, and die-cut panda bear from Miso Happy, along
with a paper pieced ballon from Take Flight. The pink diagonal striped
pattern is from the True Love 6×6 Paper Pad. I can’t remember the last
time I paper pieced! Such a shame, as it’s so quick and easy and adds great
pattern and visual texture.

I made the second version, with an Iced Aqua, Lime Green, and
Buttercup background, into a baby boy card by adding the baby panda and a
“Hello Baby” sentiment, also from Simply Sentiments.

The baby panda looks especially adorable holding the balloon! This time I
paper pieced the balloon with a pattern from the Pattern Play 6×6 Paper
Pad.

Although the pandas look fantastic just stamped in black ink and left
uncolored, I added some rosy cheeks and some warm gray shadowing around the
faces and bodies just to bring them to life a bit more.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

-Amy

16 New Ink Colors (available in full size ink pads, re-inkers and cube sets)

A little recap of what all is in this release…

16 NEW INK COLORS

These are available in full size ink pads, re-inkers and cube sets (as shown).  Do you have a favorite?  If I had to pick one I think I’d go with Magenta (or Parakeet, or Blueberry, or…yea, I can’t pick just one!)

UNDER THE UMBRELLA 6×6 PAPER PAD

I know a lot of you are swooning over these patterns.  This pad is so much fun and can be used on so many projects year round.

STAMPS

CONFETTI CUTS

PREMIER POLAR WHITE CARDSTOCK

. . . . .

I’ve been sharing all of Amy’s projects throughout the week, but I am so happy that I did get a chance to sit down and make this card to share with you today…

I paired a few of the new release products to create this card with lots of texture and pops of color.  Atop the card base is the new SQUARED OFF COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts and the focal panel is created from a PIERCED ROUND TOP LAYERS cut (flipped upside down) and then layers with the banner and florals from the BANNER IN BLOOM set.

I love the simple texture and detail that the white on white (PREMIER POLAR WHITE) gives.  For a finishing touch, I added sequins.

. . . . .

The Confetti Crew has lots to share with you today, too!  Off you go…

Our first introduction is to the deliciously cute set…

BERRY SWEET

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

. . . . .

Amy’s card features the new BERRY SWEET stamps and Confetti Cuts, along with the new SQUARED OFF COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts and the new PIERCED ROUND TOP LAYERS Confetti Cuts.

I love how she made this PIERCED ROUND TOP LAYERS panel into a tag by adding a hanger from the (previously released) HANG UPS, TOO Confetti Cuts die set.  It’s a great little detail…

The berries on this card are strawberries are blended with Piggy Bank, Coral, and
Flamingo inks.  So pretty!

. . . . .

Nothing says summer fun like a fru-fru drink in a coconut!  Introducing…

MAHALO

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

Doesn’t this set just make you want to call out to the cabana boy? *hehe*

. . . . .

Amy’s card pairs this set with the new BUILD A BUNCH stamps to create the tropical delight…

She pulled out all the stops with the new ink colors on this beautiful tropical creation!  Flowers and leaves are stamped in Bellini, Pistachio, Parakeet, Wisteria, Lagoon, Magenta and the Blue Hawaiian drink is blended with Pistachio, Seafoam and Lagoon.  WOWZAS!

The word “mahalo” is also part of the Confetti Cuts die set…

. . . . .
