APRIL CREATIVE HOP

Hello, 'Fetti Fam!
It's been a minute since I was able to sit down and create and I am so happy that this month's creative hop "forced me" to!  We have a fabulous hop for you today that is full of all sorts of creative projects.  What I want to know is...what inspires you?  I can be inspired by just about anything.  I am often seen taking pictures of random things so I can look later for inspiration for a project or even a product.  Today's inspiration comes to by way of the 80's.  I've been feeling some serious retro 80's vibes lately and I wanted to bring that to this card...
 
 
While I love to send birthday and every kind of holiday card, my favorite kind of card is just a "hello" card because it's often unexpected and such a fun and easy way to brighten up someone's day. 
 
I started with a card base created from Premier Polar White cardstock.  From there, I added a panel that was cut from Along the Dotted Lines Cover Panel and then cut down and rotated (I love using our dies in ways that are less than obvious to make them go a little further). 
 
The "hello" is from the Thanks & Hello words duos Confetti Cuts die set and it is cut four times from RC Aqua cardstock and then the top layer is clear embossed to give it a bit of smooth texture and shine.
 
 
The stamped sentiment is from the This Says it All stamp set and it is stamped in Midnight ink.  The circles are from the Background Builder stamp set and cut out with a punch (I couldn't believe that I still had a few in my drawer!) and they are stamped with Magenta, Parakeet and Bellini inks.
 
 
. . . . . .

Time for me to send you off to see what the rest of the Confetti Crew and our 'Fetti Friends have created!

Hello!  Tricia here today to share with you a tip for stretching your dies with partial die cutting!  This works great for square shaped dies.   I used the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts and changed the square shape to a rectangle.   See below for how I did this.  

 

Starting with the top left, place your die cut onto the card panel and position the die on your plate where you want your initial cut to end.  What is under the plates will be die cut and the portion hanging out will not be die cut.   You will end up with the top right corner, the top half of your panel is die cut.   Bottom left corner, flip your paper and die over and position your die where you want the next die cut.  This die works well because it has the scallops and I can line up the die along the scalloped edge.  Bottom middle, position your die and cardstock that you want cut under the plates. Bottom right corner is the final result! I have a rectangle instead of a square frame! 


Here is a close up shot of the final partial die cut Scalloped Squares Confetti Cut.   I stamped out the images from Rain or Shine and Hop into Spring onto Premier Polar White cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.  I die cut the images out with the Rain or Shine Confetti Cuts and the Hop into Spring Confetti Cuts.




For the main panel, I stamped the images from Rain or Shine with white pigment ink onto a kraft card base.  I repeated the images across the panel to create my own patterned paper.   I then die cut the panel with the Along the Dotted Lines Cover Panel. 



The sentiment is from Hop into Spring stamp set.   I layered a white panel underneath the frame and added the sun and rainbow with liquid adhesive.   The cloud and bunnies were popped up along with the frame with foam tape.  To finish it off, I added some details with a white gel pen and crystal glaze.   I hope you give partial die cutting a try!

Hello 'Fetti Fans!  Amy Kolling and I am excited to share a project with you.

There is not much more you need other than this fabulous HOPE Coordinates Confetti Cut and Hope Coordinates sentiment set.  I did pair it with the Center Circle Cover Panel Confetti Cuts.

Hope

The background of the card was ink blended with Broken China Distress Ink as well as a standard circle die.  The bottom of the word 'hope' was also ink blended just a bit at the bottom leaving the top white.  The shadow part of the word was die cut out of Midnight Cardstock.  The word itself was die cut 4 times and layered together for dimension.  The sun die was sandwiched in between the layers.  A supporting sentiment was stamped and added with foam adhesive.  As a finishing touch, a few white gems were added.

Hope

HAVE A SUPER BIRTHDAY

By Reverse Confetti
on April 05, 2021

Welcome back my 'Fetti Friends! Candice with you today! In our home Superhero's are among our favorites in movies and games so having some extra birthday cards for the superhero's in our house is a great idea!

I used these Reverse Confetti products to create my design:

I began my card with a 5 x 6 1/2 card base.

I first die cut the stitched window panel from yellow cardstock and set aside. For the back sky, I inked a piece of Bristol Smooth with chipped sapphire and blueprint sketch oxide inks, and splattered with white paint.

While I let that dry, I stamped all the images from the So Super stamp set, colored them with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut out.

To put the card together, I glued the skyline to back of the window and used foam tape to adhere the sky background to the window and added it to the center of my card with foam tape. I then die cut the layered YOU from black and red cardstock and put the banner with the sentiment right on top. I finished by adding the rest of my images all around the window with foam tape and a few red gems!

Thank you so much for visiting with me today!

Candice

Sometimes there are no words.  It could be a big or small situation that a friend or family member is experiencing which you want to help them through.  In those times, the best comfort may be to just let them know you're there for them.

 


 For my card, I cut Premier Polar White cardstock with the new Along The Dotted Lines Cover Panel then sprinkled with some bronze paint.  I gold embossed this sentiment from the Mixed Messages set onto Dark Roast cardstock.  These pretty images are from the Lily of the Valley stamp set and coordinating dies.

From Ali Farmer...
My card today could really be used for such a variety of reasons, although I thought given its modern youthfull feel it would be great for a graduate. I used the wonderful You Matter stamp and die sets and a sentiment from Chalk It Up, along with my favorite Stitched Rays Cover Panel.

I began the card by using the cover panel to emboss 2 pieces of white cardstock and using the circle die that comes with the You Matter dies to cut an appeture in one piece. I cut another circle slightly larger from the other piece to sit behind the hands.

I stamped and coloured the hands with copic markers in rainbow colours and added jewelry and details with a Copic Multiliner. I used the corresponding die to cut the middle from the hands and trimmed the outsides with scissors. I adhered the hands behind the front piece and used 3 D foam on the back. I lined up the stitched lines with the 2nd circle piece and adhered all to a white cardbase.

I stamped the sentiment with black ink and punched a circle, adhering it to the centre of the hands.
Such a wonderful, bright and cheerful card with a youthful feel!
Make sure you tag your creations and join in the fun for this month, we love to see all your creations!

YG00 | YG01

The sentiment is from The Lily of the Valley set along with the die cut Mom from Mom & Dad Word Duos.

MAGICAL

Hi Friends! I hope you're having a magical day! I'm smitten with the new Enchanted Garden 
set! It's absolutely magical! You'll find sweet girls with fairy wings and all the accessories you need to create cards with scenes.
These happy figures almost demanded a bright cheery rainbow background! This one was easy to create with Distress Oxide Ink. I used smaller size cosmetic brushes to add more layers of color.

I always arrange the images on a piece of plastic the size of my card front. This helps me decide where to place the images, and where the sentiment will be stamped before I commit and adhere them in place.

Because the plastic is clear it's easy to pick up the entire arrangement and lay it over different color distress ink backgrounds before choosing the perfect one.
These cute little fairies are a sweet escape and sure to put a little twinkle in your eye! They add a little magic wherever they go!

Finished Size 4.25 x 5.5"

BEAUTIFUL HELLO CARD

Hello!  
Amy Kolling here today with a card using Alcohol Inks and Alcohol Lift Ink.  I've had some new synthetic paper I wanted to play with so I brought out the alcohol inks.  

Alcohol ink 

A panel of synthetic paper was made using Cranberry, Pink Sherbet, Watermelon Alcohol Inks along with alcohol blending solution.  I love these colors together.  Once this panel was dry, using alcohol lift ink from Ranger, the bold, thick Peony image from the Peony stamp set was stamped.  The image was repeatedly stamped and then buffed, lifting the ink.  This makes such a subtle background pattern!  This panel was trimmed down and matted with a white panel.


Using the Peony Confetti Cuts, the leaf grouping image was die cut twice out of vellum.  The vellum images were adhered mid panel to the alcohol background.  To ground my die cut sentiment, a thin strip of white cardstock was adhered across the panel.  The word 'hello', from Thanks and Hello Word Duos Confetti Cuts, was die cut three times and adhered together for dimension.  As a last touch, a few small gems were added to the panel.

JUST A NOTE TO SAY...

Hello Fetti Fans! I am super excited to get to share today. The weather is beautiful here in OH and I finally got to color up the Oranges into oranges. I stamped the gorgeous fruit from Orange Blossoms onto Copic friendly paper. I then used the matching Orange Blossom Confetti Cuts to cut each of the images. 


I was also drawn to the wonderful Big Flower Cover Panel. I love it cut from Premium Polar white card stock and layered on the same white card base. I popped up the panel with some foam dots. 

I added a strip of orange polka dotted paper from Darling Dots. I stamped the sentiment from Orange Blossoms in Midnight ink


I tucked in a few orange blossoms in the top corners. I love how the orange just pops against the white background. 


The bright orange and greens just make me so happy. There really is no better smell than fresh citrus, and if I can't smell the oranges, at least I can create them and enjoy a little color therapy. 

Crafty Hugs, 

Lisa
