WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS – VIDEO

Hi there, Amy S. with this week’s Wednesday in the Works project and video.

In today’s video, I am sharing how to make a cute Tic Tac (or other treat)
wrap using the Round Top Tag Confetti Cuts die set.

To make the wrap, I started with a piece of Stone cardstock measuring 9
3/4″ x 2″. I scored at 1 1/2″, 4 1/2″ 5 1/4″ and 8 1/4″. Next, I die-cut
the handles on both ends, first rounding the ends by partially cutting just
the top half of the Round Top Tag Confetti Cuts die, and then die-cutting the handle using the semi-circle die that’s also in that set.

After creating the wrap, I decorated it using the Take Flight and Miso
Happy stamps and dies and a tiny bit of patterned paper from the Pattern
Play paper 6×6 paper pad.

The circle tag is from the Goodie Box Additions Confetti Cuts set and the
“smile” sentiment is from Later Alligator.

Thanks for joining me today!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS – VIDEO

Hi ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy S. here with a *Wednesday in the Works* project
and video for you.

I’m loving the new Hello & Thanks Label Confetti Cuts die set that
Reverse Confetti just released last week! While experimenting with this die
for my release projects, I tried cutting multiple labels out of a single
card panel, then inlaying the label pieces in various bold colors of card
stock.

This is what I ended up with. I used a different color card stock for each
label inlay to get that nice color-blocked effect.

The three hello’s were done with the hello die in the Hello & Thanks
Label set.
I added some hearts, sequins, and tiny wood veneer hearts as
embellishments. The large heart comes from the XOXO Hearts Confetti Cuts set,
and the small heart is from the Circle Wishes Confetti Cuts set.

*Confetti Cuts Dies*: Hello & Thanks Label, XOXO Hearts, Circle Wishes

*Paper*: Cloud White, Buttercup, Flamingo, RC Aqua, and Stone

Pattern Play and True Love paper pads

*Other*: sequins, wood veneer hearts, white linen thread

The background reminded me of honeycomb, so for today’s video, I went
all-out with the honeycomb colors and a whole yellow and black bee theme:

This time I used black for the frame and two shades of yellow, the new
Buttercup and Bumblebee Yellow cardstock colors, for the label inlays.

The bees and stamped sentiment are from The Buzz. Check out the video for
more info.

*Stamps*: The Buzz

*Confetti Cuts dies*: Hello & Thanks Label, The Buzz

*Ink*: Midnight, Sunshine

*Paper*: Midnight, Buttercup, Bumblebee Yellow, Cloud White

*Other*: Lotsa Dots stencil, charcoal twine, clear sequins, Copic markers,
Clear Wink of Stella, corner rounder

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!
