COOKIES, MILK & WARM HUGS

Hi crafty friends! Olga is here and it’s time for my new card.
 I love these adorably critter  images from the Cookies & Milk set so much! Now we already have snow. However, the fall of leaves is not over yet. So we can observe the meeting of autumn with winter. This is the atmosphere I wanted to create in my card with Cookies and Milk set.


As always I started with preparing all the details of the card. I stamped and colored this cute stamps with Copic markers, cut them all with Cookies & Milk Confetti Cuts die set. Also for my card I used several stamp sets: Enchanted Garden with Enchanted Garden Confetti Cuts (mushrooms), Pick of the Patch with Pick of the Patch Confetti Cuts (owl, hedgehog and leaves) and School Days with School Days Confetti Cuts (apple).


Next I made a colorful background. And when the background was done, I foam mounted the images on the card. 


Finally I added a big sentiment banner "Warm hugs" using Warm Hugs Confetti CutsThe little sentiment "lots of" from the Scripty Sentiments set.


Hope you enjoyed today’s project
Thanks so much for stopping by!

LOTS OF HUGS

By Jennifer del Muro
on October 21, 2021

 

Hi Fetti Fans! Ali here today with a wonderful fall card for you using the In All things Stamp and die set along with the Double Stitch Window Cover Panel and the Scripty Sentiments stamp set.

I began by stamping the images on white cardstock with versamark ink and embossing with gold embossing powder. I then used my brushes to blend Distress Oxide Ink in patches over the images. This is the emboss-resist technique and is great for those who are after a fast result or who just need a break from coloring in!

I die cut the images and adhered them in a wreath as shown. I die cut the Double Stitch Widow Cover Panel in a burgundy cardstock and adhered this to a kraft cardbase. 

I stamped a sentiment from the Scripty Sentiments in versamark ink on burgundy cardstock and used a generic circle punch to punch it out along with a slightly larger circle of kraft cardstock for a backing.

I used 3D foam to adhere the wreath and sentiment to the front of the card to finish. 
Hope you enjoyed this inspo and see you again soon!

AUTUMN GREETINGS

By Jennifer del Muro

Hello! Nothing is better on a cold day than cuddling up with a warm flannel blanket and a hot cup of apple cider!  I wanted to create that cozy feeling in the card that I created today.  


I used the Plaid Lines - Small and Plaid Lines - Big Confetti Cuts and die cut from Cloud White and Sand cardstock.   I layered the two panels onto a Dark Roast card base.   This reminded me so much of a warm and cozy flannel blanket! 


I stamped the images from Autumn Apple Cider stamp set and colored with my Copic markers in warm brown, reds and greens.  I die cut the images with the matching Autumn Apple Cider Confetti Cuts.  I love the new Large Detailed Circle Frame Confetti Cuts and die cut from Cloud White cardstock.  I offset the circle on the card base.  Extending your images or die cuts over the A2 base will be unexpected and add interest. You just need to a create your own envelope or use a 5x7 envelope to mail the card!  


I stamped the greeting from the Autumn Apple Cider stamp set and added to the card with some foam tape.   Love this font combination!   Cheers to you and hope you have a wonderful day! 

 

 

EDGE TO EDGE SHAKER

Hello crafty friends! I'm Lien and this week I'm sharing a fun edge to edge shaker with a bold ombre sentiment and some custom die cut shaker pieces. As always, I will leave a video linked below so you can watch the entire process as well!

For this card I started out by doing some ink smooshing with Distress Oxide inks onto scrap pieces of Canson Montval 300 gsm watercolor cardstock. I love Oxide inks for this because they layer beautifully and create really intricate ink smooshed pieces. I made some in pinks (with Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves) and some in oranges (with Dried Marigold and Carved Pumpkin). I then die cut a ton of the individual flower dies that come with the Hello Daisy Cover Panel Confetti Cuts. These will be my shaker bits!

For my big and bold sentiment I used the Hello die from that same die set and cut the shadow layer four times out of thick white cardstock and once from a gold holographic cardstock. For the scripty layer on top I cut it once from a teal cardstock and four times out of thick white cardstock. I wanted to add a little extra interest to that sentiment so I made it ombre with some ink blending! I added Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire on the bottom of the die cut with blending brushes. I layered all those dies together and that holographic gold shadow will add just a touch of amazing shine without being too overpowering. I add some of the daisies on top of the sentiment as well. To add interest to my background I dry embossed the All Lined Up Cover Panel Confetti Cuts onto an A2 sized piece of white cardstock to add embossed stripes.

The way to assemble this shaker is super easy, take some flimsy acetate (any packaging from stamp sets or something similar will work perfectly!) and just fold it around that white embossed background. I add double sided adhesive to the long sides of the panel, fold over the acetate and seal those sides first. I then add double sided adhesive to both the short sides, seal one of them and leave one open to fill the shaker. I add in all my die cuts (making sure the pretty side is facing up) and some chunky pink glitter and silver glitter as well. I adhere that onto a cardbase with more double sided adhesive and then adhere my sentiment right on top with glossy accents. As a finishing touch I added some silver gems into the centers of the daisies and that's it!

SUPER CUTE HALLOWEEN CARD

Hi! It's Candice with you this Monday and I have a fun CAS Halloween card for you today! There is something so fun in using Halloween colors for your designs, don't you agree?!

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 the background, I created the stitched slimline panel by trimming a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock to fit on my card front and die cut with the Along the Dotted Line Cover Panel using the partial die cut method (run partway through, rotate and line up, and run through partway again!).

I then die cut a bunch of strips from Bristol Smooth cardstock and black cardstock, using the longest tag from the Three Tags die set, trimmed them to fit going down my card. I heat embossed every other one with Halloween sentiments and inked some with seedless preserves and mowed lawn.

Next, I stamped the ghost, cat, and bat, colored them with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I then stamped the spider and web near the top. To put the card together, I used foam tape on the strips and then on the images to give great dimension to the design and finished with some green jewels!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

BOO!

Hello friends! Olga Moss is here. I'm continuing my preparation for Halloween and today I want share these projects with you.


I want to create little gifties for my son's friend. So I made these treat holders using Pencil & Treat Holder Confetti CutsI have found a quick and easy way to decorate these holders and I will be glad to share my idea with you.


Sometimes we all need to look at what we have from a different angle and then we can discover something new. I do the same with my stamp sets too. So I discovered there is a ghost silhouette die among the Coordinating dies for the Boo Day stamp set and it can be used without stamps. This decision gave a new look to my work. 
Using the ghost silhouette die I've cut it out in 4 different colors and I used an element on repeat to create a composition. It's so fun! 


I thought for a long time what to use as the eyes and mouth of a ghost and found a solution when I started designing the second holder. So I die cut the big sentiment "Trick or treat" using Trick or Treat Confetti Cuts and I noticed that the remnants of the letters O and A have a suitable shape for the eyes and mouth of the ghost. Bingo! My composition has come together!
For the background I used some patterned paper from This & That 6x6 Paper Pad and Circle Rays Duo Confetti Cuts. To decorate the holders I also used mini sentiments from the Halloween Sentiments stamp set.


I liked these cute ghosts so much that I couldn't resist making a card with them. 


For the background I used the Piggy Bank Cardstock and I heat embossed in gold spiderweb images on it. 


I wanted to add a spectacular design element to my card so I used big Candles Confetti CutsI added the candles panel with the ghosts onto the background. 


And I added the sentiment BOO that I made using Letter Cuts Confetti Cuts and Midnight Cardstock. The card is ready. 


Hope you enjoyed my today’s projects

HELLO

Hello Fetti Fans! Great to have you visit here on the blog again! Ali with you today to bring you a pretty pastel coloured card using the wonderful Big Flower Cover Panel and the Hello Daisy Cover Panel along with one of my new favourite distress Oxide ink colours - Salvaged Patina. I also grabbed Shaded Lilac which I think is a perfect compliment for the light aqua colour.
To start, I die cut a white piece of cardstock using the Big Flower cover Panel. To make the background piece, I cut another white piece of cardstock to size and inked it with patches of Salvaged Patina and Shaded Lilac with my ink brushes. I then splattered the piece with white Gesso and put aside to dry. 

I die cut the Hello pieces from white cardstock and light aqua coloured cardstock and adhered them together. When the coloured piece was dry, I cut to size to fit behind the Flower panel - I like to trim my panel down so that it fits my Aus card size - this doesn't bother me at all and I like the look it creates actually! I adhered this together and then die cut some flowers using the left over coloured piece.

I adhered a purple piece of cardstock to the front of the flower panel piece and then adhered the hello and flowers as shown. I then adhered this to a white cardbase. I love the texture in this card and the little layered flowers that reflect the floral Cover Plate. 
Hope you enjoyed this card and see you again soon!
Ali xx
 

VISITING THE PUMPKIN PATCH

 I am all smiles today because it's the most beautiful time of the year!!  I love to make Fall cards.  I love the colors of Fall, the cooler weather, leaves starting to change and pumpkins everywhere!!  I made this slimline card using the Pick of the Patch stamp set.   


Aren't these little critters just the cutest!  I stamped them out and colored with my Copics.   I also stamped out some trees from Holiday Gnomes stamp set onto Lime Green cardstock. I die cut all my images out with the matching Pick of the Patch Confetti Cuts and Holiday Gnomes Confetti Cuts. 


For my card panel, I trimmed down some kraft cardstock to 3 1/2 inches by 8 3/4 inches.  I ink blended with Distress Inks in Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.   I stamped off a leaf from Fall Flowers and stamped the background.  You just see a hint of falling leaves.  I added a strip of Dark Roast cardstock to the bottom.  I stamped a sentiment from Fall Flowers in Dark Roast ink onto the panel 


I adhered the panel to a kraft card base with liquid adhesive.  I added some twine that I wrapped around the card several times and tied off a bow.  I added a felt flower and a small rhinestone for some sparkle!  


I hope you have a wonderful day!  Thanks for stopping by! 



SEASON’S GREETINGS

Hello crafty friends! I'm Lien and this week I made a very fun non-traditional Christmas cards. I make so many holiday cards every year I get a little bit burnt out with the traditional stuff even though I love that look, so I'm always happy to come up with out of the box Christmas designs and this bear was perfect for it!

For this card I started out by using the Tree Confetti Cuts to die cut a stencil. I just do this out of glossy cardstock, but you can do it out of acetate as well! I do make sure to trim my cardstock down to A2 size, center my die on top of that, so it's easy to align this stencil on my card later. I tape everything temporarily in place with painters tape and then I can blend a galaxy through this tree stencil using Iced Aqua, Lime Green, Baby Blue, Navy and Royal Purple ink by Reverse Confetti, I also added some splatter with silver metallic paint.

I then stamped an image from the The Bear Up There stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Canson Montval 200 gsm watercolor cardstock. I also embossed this with WOW Clear Gloss Super Fine Embossing Powder. Then I can easily paint this image in with my watercolors and fussy cut it out. You could use the matching dies, but honestly I am terrible at lining those up. You can find the dies right here.

I cut down my panel to be slightly smaller than A2 size, added a sentiment from the Sparkle and Shine Sentiments stamp set in silver embossing powder and then it's time to assemble my card. I glued 4 extra pieces of thick white cardstock under my tree panel to prop it up on my cardbase. I then adhere the bear on some foam tape and as a finishing touch I added a couple of holographic gems.

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

WARM HUGS

Hello! Candice with you today and I just love the new Autumn stamp sets from the new release at Reverse Confetti and used them to create this Fall slimline card!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my slimline design:

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

For the background, I trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth to fit my card front, die cut the Circle Elements on each side, inked it with tea dye and antique linen, and splattered with white paint, brown and gold shimmer spray using a damp paintbrush.

While that dried, I inked a scrap piece of Bristol Smooth with crackling campfire and aged mahogany and cut it with the warm hugs die. I layered it on multiples of thick white cardstocks cut from more of the warm hugs die and glued to the center near the top.

Next, I stamped the floral bloom, leaves, cider mug, apple, and cinnamon sticks onto watercolor paper using Versafine Ink, colored them with Zig watercolor markers, and used the coordinating dies listed above to cut them out. I adhered them to the card using glue, foam tape, and double foam tape to really give depth to my images and finished with some dark pink jewels!

Zig colors I used: pale orange, brown, deep red, mid green, and deep green

Thank you for visiting with me today and I hope you are enjoying some beautiful Fall weather!

Candice
