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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
