SNOW MUCH FUN

By Jennifer del Muro
on December 03, 2021

 


I am always constantly in search of new and interesting sketches for my cards. And all my non-standard experiments are inspired by Reverse Confetti products. So for today's post I made this fun winter scene card using new big sentiment Layered Joy Confetti Cuts and absolutely adorable Snow Bunnies stamp set.  And I can't wait to share it with you!


The images were stamped in a black hybrid ink, colored with copic markers, and die cut out with the Snow Bunnies Confetti Cuts. I  also used some trees from the Cookies & Milk set. I created an ink blended background. Then I remove the top of my background. So I got a view of a big snowy hill.


Next I heat embossed in white the sentiment from our FREEBIE stamp set called Snowy Sentiments. This is available at no charge with orders of $60+.  Please note, it MUST BE ADDED to your cart to receive this set.  It is also available to purchase separately.


I have placed at the top of my card a 2 piece word "joy" in a scripty font. I cut out the bottom layer of the sentiment from craft cardstock and the letters on top from a white sheet of paper. And I decorated it with glitter. I think it looks so fun.


Finally I added all the images and the sentiment to the card base with foam tape. Also to complete the composition I added the multicolored snowflakes from the polymer clay.


Hope you play along this month - can't wait to see what you create!

STUNNING ORNAMENTS

By Jennifer del Muro
on December 02, 2021

Hello Fetti Fans! Ali here today with some lovely Christmas tags that can also be made as tree ornaments. I've used the Open Drop Cover Panel centre die to form the shape of the tags/ornaments and the beautiful Snowflake Season images for the embossed feature. The Blessed and Love and XOXO Word Duos Confetti Cut word dies are perfect to complete them.  

I began by die cutting two centre pieces with the die from matt silver cardstock. I then embossed the snowflake images in versamark ink on navy cardstock and embossed with silver holographic embossing powder. Hint: when heat setting glitter embossing powder, heat from the back as this avoids blowing off the glitter with your heat gun. 
Using the corresponding dies from the set, I cut out the snowflakes and adhered them to the front of the centre pieces. I die cut the words and adhered as shown. I punched holes in the top and threaded ribbon in silver and navy blue to finish. 

Hope this inspires you to create some handmade tree decorations! See you again soon

RADIATING CHRISTMAS TREE

By Jennifer del Muro
on November 30, 2021

Hello crafty friends! I'm Lien and this week I'm sharing a clean and simple circle card using some die cut inlay! As always you can find the video at the bottom of the blogpost!

For this card I started out by stamping the lovely little Christmas tree image from the Polar Party stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink (any alcohol marker friendly ink will do!) onto Clairefontaine DCP 250 gsm cardstock. I quickly colored this in with my markers and then fussy cut it out. If you're not as much a fan of fussy cutting as I am, you can use the matching dies. Now I'm going to zhuzh up this tree a little bit more later, but let's get started on our cardbase and background, shall we?

To make this circle card I die cut three circles of the same size, using some regular old nesting circle dies. I put two aside, those will form my cardbase later and from the third one I can die cut the Circle Element Confetti Cuts die right from the center of it. I also die cut that same die from some holographic gold cardstock, any specialty cardstock will really pack a punch here!

I then used my scoring tool to put a score line near the top of one of the plain circles. I reinforce that with my bonefolder and put some liquid glue on everything above the scoreline then adhere it to the second plain circle. I then glue the white circle with the circle element die cut from it right to the front of my card. Now using some more liquid glue, I fill in some of the gaps and I use a jewel picker to insert the gold holographic pieces for a fun die cut inlay look. Once I've done all that I can mount the tree on top with some foam adhesive. To finish the tree I put some Wink of Stella Clear Brush pen on the stars and some Glossy Accents on the red baubles.

If you'd like to see how I made this card plus a fun matching envelope, please watch the video below! Thank you so much for visiting!

ORNAMENT FUN!

Candice with you today sharing a quick and fun ornament you could make with your children for Christmas! One of our family traditions is to make a yearly ornament so that by the time my kids get their own tree they will have ornaments with memories to go on their tree!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my ornaments:

I die cut 3 of the green dots, 3 of the striped, and 6 of the shimmer white cardstocks from the inside drop cover, scored them down the center and adhered all of them together except closing it together using strong double-sided tape.

To assemble the ornaments, I trimmed pieces of gold twine, tied a knot on the bottoms, and closed the ornaments together with the twine in the center. To add a bit more sparkle, I glued some gold domes on the white inside pieces.

You can make these with all that Christmas pattern paper you have and you can also add extra layers to make it thicker if you would like to!

Thank you for visiting today!

Candice

Hello again! Candice with you today sharing a great way to combine your word dies to create a great focal point sentiment on your card!

I used these Reverse Confetti products to create my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For my background, I trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth a little smaller than my card front, inked it with broken china, tumbled glass, mowed lawn and bundled sage, and splattered with white paint and gold shimmer spray using a damp paintbrush.

While that dried, I die cut the PEACE from a piece of Bristol Smooth inked with the broken china and tumbled glass, and the JOY from another piece inked with the mowed lawn and bundled sage and layered the 2. I then used my Cameo Silhouette to cut out the & from some pattern paper.

Next, I stamped Mary, Joseph, and Jesus and the doves colored them with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I then heat embossed the stars in gold and cut out with the matching dies and heat embossed the sentiment on a small banner. To put the card together, I first arranged my word die sentiment and placed the sentiment banner along the bottom of the JOY. The images I placed around the words to draw your eye in and finished with some gold domes!

I hope you try to use your word dies to create a great focal point on your next card!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Candice

PEACE, LOVE & JOY

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Hello Fetti Fans! Ali here today. What a fabulous Retro Holiday vibe I had when creating this week - such fun!! I was using the Retro Holiday stamps of course and I just had to go for a true retro colour combination of orange and pink with yellow too. So different but I love this look! I'll be creating a lot more with this set.
To begin, I created the background by stamping the dotted lines for bauble cords, along with the mini star images with the 3 coloured inks on white cardstock. You can use any bright inks you have. I then splattered with black ink mixed with water. 
I stamped the images using my misti in all of the 3 colours and fussy cut them which was super easy to do (as I wanted them all separate). I layered them on the background piece as shown and adhered in place. I stamped the sentiment using my misti so I could get a nice clear image by stamping 2-3 times. I used an orange piece of card as a backing before adhering to a white cardbase.
I really love how this set is so different to anything I have seen before - loving the retro look, are you?
See you again soon, Ali xx

WARM WINTER GREETINGS

Hello 'Fetti Friends!   I love snowflake images and this new set Snowflake Season does not disappoint!   It has some beautiful images both small and large snowflakes.   

 
I started with Navy cardstock and cut it down to 3 1/2 inches by 8 1/4 inches.   I used my embossing buddy across the cardstock I started by embossing my sentiment so that I could build my snowflakes around the card panel.  


I used my MISTI and was able to rotate my card around with the larger stamped images.   I then filled in the rest of the panel with the smaller snowflakes.  I embossed the snowflakes with silver detailed embossing powder.   To finish off the card panel, I inked the edges with Abyss ink to darken the outer edges of the panel.  I then used a paper towel and wiped my card panel of the dust and ink from the stamped and embossed snowflakes. 


 I hope you have a wonderful day!  Be sure to check out the Thankful sale and stock up on your wish list items!!   Happy Thanksgiving!
