WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

We have an awesome WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS for you today!

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 colorful set of pocket scrapbooking cards that will kick start your creative for scrapbooking or cardmaking!

As soon as I saw the Posted Note Sentiments stamp set, I thought how perfect many of the sentiments would be for pocket scrapbooking filler cards. I also pulled out a couple of other sentiment sets that work well for pocket scrapbooking: Shine From Within and God Is Good.

 I started out by watercoloring eight backgrounds and die-cutting them using the rounded rectangle die from Documented Confetti Cuts die set. Just shy of 3″ x 4″, this die is designed for pocket scrapbooking. (It’s also a great size for background panels on cards.)

This first one is super easy. After watercoloring and splattering, I just stamped the big sentiment from Shine From Within and clear embossed to make it extra crisp.

 pocketscrap2_sparkle

Here, I’ve white embossed the sentiment (also from Shine From Within) onto the watercolored Documented panel, then accented with clear sequins, silver star sequins, and some silver metallic embroidery floss.

I love how this one turned out! I adhered a white Geometric Background Confetti Cuts die-cut over the watercolor background, trimmed off the overhang, and embellished at the “intersections” with clear sequins. The sentiment, from Posted Note Sentiments, is stamped on vellum and white embossed, then machine-stitched to the card base.

 pocketscrap4_takenote

I just adore the Posted Note Confetti Cuts die set! Here, I added a faux chalkboard layer by die-cutting a second Posted Note rounded rectangle, trimming it down, and re-rounding the corners. (I trimmed the corners by hand.) I white embossed the sentiment (from Posted Note Sentiments), then used a sponge dauber to lightly smudge on some white pigment ink for the erased chalkboard look.

 pocketscrap5_Godisgood

For this first one in the red/pink/orange/yellow group, I stamped and white embossed a sentiment from God is Good onto a vellum flag that I die-cut using one of the dies from the Layered Banner Duo Confetti Cuts set. I machine-stitched it to the Documented die-cut and embellished with some enamel dots. Last, I added just a touch of gold metallic splatter.

 pocketscrap6_lovelifelivelife

Here, the sentiment (from Posted Note Sentiments) is white embossed onto the Documented die-cut. I embellished with some Star Garland Confetti Cuts and more enamel dots.

 pocketscrap7_greatday

On this one, the sentiment (from Posted Note Sentiments) is stamped in black pigment ink and clear embossed. I machine-stitched some messy circles around the sentiment and embellished with clear sequins.

 pocketscrap8_amazing

Last up is another sentiment from Posted Note Sentiments, again stamped on vellum, white embossed, machine-stitched to the Documented panel. This design leaves lots of open space for optional journaling.

 reverseconfetti_pocketscrapfillercards

That wraps up the collection. Hope you’re inspired to use your stamps and dies in your scrapbooking. And if you’re not a scrapbooker, all of these easily could be turned into cards just by adhering the panels to card bases.

WEEK IN REVERSE

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s been an amazing week here at the Reverse Confetti offices and I hope it has been for you, too!  We’re kicking off the weekend with the new Minion movie and hopefully getting some time by the pool, too…especially since our last couple of poolside attempts have gone up in flames.   I’m getting to that point that I am looking forward to the new school year starting…anyone else with me on this one?

. . . . .

It’s been a few Fridays since our last WEEK IN REVERSE, but we are back with it today.  Check out what the (amazing!) Confetti Crew has been up to this week…

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Hump Day!

This week is zooming on by and we have a great WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS here for you today!

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, Sarah Gough, shows you how she uses the new YOU ARE A STAR stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts, as well as several of her other faves.  You are going to love the video she has come up with for you…and you may learn a trick or two!

. . . . .

SarahIntroPic

I don’t think it’s a secret that I love Confetti Cuts, and the new You Are a star Confetti Cuts and stamp set are so much fun! I use the dies in a number of ways on this card, and show you a couple of pieces that didn’t make the finished card but are ways to stretch your dies even further! And if you don’t know how very simple it is to cut out your stamped images with Confetti Cuts – I’m going to show you that too!
