WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

We have a very special WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS for 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 awesome way to add dimension, color and WOW FACTOR to your card using the new GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die.

Hi ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy today, with this week’s Wednesday in the Works. I love the new GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts die, and wanted to share with you a prism idea I came up with. I was in the process of creating a shaker using this die, and had about six or so white GEOMETRIC BACKGROUND Confetti Cuts panels cut, so that I could build up enough depth for a shaker. When I went to stack the die-cuts together, they were ever so slightly out of alignment. I thought it looked really cool, and would look even cooler with rainbow panels instead of all white. So I got to work cutting out one panel from white glitter paper, and 7 more ROYGBIV panels.

I used liquid glue to adhere the layers to one another, which gave me enough dry time that I could slide each panel right into the desired offset position. To keep the liquid glue mess in check, I only used the glue at the intersections and around the perimeter. That seemed to be plenty of glue to hold everything together.

The sentiment, from SHINE FROM WITHIN, is heat embossed in white onto a vellum banner, then layered onto more of the same glitter paper that I used for the top layer of the prism.

An ombre version of this would look great too! Just use different shades of the same color.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope your day is filled with sparkle and color!
