CONFETTI CAMERA WITH JEANNE

 

 

Hello and welcome to this week’s Confetti Camera with Jeanne Jachna!
In this weekly segment, one of the Confetti Crew designers will have the camera on both themselves, as a designer, and on their Reverse Confetti creations.
For this round each of our designers are showcasing unique ways to use Confetti Cuts dies.
A couple of things to note:
1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.
2) Each designer will follow the same theme until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member (then it’s a new round with new questions/theme).

Jeanne here with today’s Confetti Camera!  I’m sharing some methods to stretch your dies by using them in different and unique ways.  Dies are my favorite paper crafting product so I had lots of fun making this card for today!

I started by water coloring a border of Salty Ocean Distress Ink on a piece of watercolor paper.  When it was dry, I used the Reverse CHEVRON PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cut as a stencil to add more color.  I used a stencil brush to add stripes of color in the white spaces around the design.  Since the pattern repeats it’s easy to lift the die cut, match the pattern and extend the lines.

I die cut the “Thanks” word die from the HELLO & THANKS LABEL set from the watercolor panel.  I cut the die 3 more times – stacking the dies to add some dimension and make the thanks message easy to see.

Finally I added some texture by spreading light molding paste over the CHEVRON PRETTY PANELS die cut (make sure you use a clean one – the distress ink will color the paste!)   When I removed the panel I gave the molding paste a sprinkle of fine white glitter.   Clean up is easy – no stencil to wash – just toss the die cut paper panel.

With the background panel complete, it was time to embellish it!  I layered die cut WHEAT and LEAFY and LAYERED LAURELS behind a stamped and die cut BUTTERFLY DREAMS Butterfly.
Try cutting your dies from different materials like glitter or pattern paper, foil, vellum, wood veneer or felt for different looks.

Sometimes a solid image gives better contrast on a busy background.  I didn’t remove the die cut pieces from the WHEAT Confetti Cut on this project.  The solid gold foil images break up the background design.

I hope this card gives you ideas for different ways to use your die cuts.  You’ll get more use from your die cuts and be delighted with the things you make!
