Hello and welcome to this week’s Confetti Camera with Tricia Barber!
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).

Hello ‘Fetti Friends!   It’s Tricia here today to share with you another creative way to use your Confetti Cuts.  Today, I thought I would share one of the things that I love to do to stretch my supplies using the partial die cutting technique.   You can change the shape of your die cut images and stretch or shorten them to be used in new ways.    Today, I am using the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts.  

To partial die cut, you place your die on your cardstock and when you place the die on your die cutting plate, leave it partial hanging off.    Send it thru your die cutting machine and it will only cut what is under the plate.   Next you will shift the die either smaller or larger depending on what you want to create.  I use the grooves in the die to line it back up with the already cut lines.   Then place on your cutting plate again hanging off the paper that has already been cut.   You can trim off the paper around the die cut so that you can see where the cut edge ends and see where to line up the die for the second cut.   Then send it thru the die cutting machine again and you will either stretch or shorten the the shape of your die cut!   See the pictures below to see the different shapes that I made from the Scalloped Square Confetti Cuts.  


 I used the Large Scalloped Square and shortened the die cut using the partial die cutting technique to create a Scalloped Rectangle.   I inked blended on the background piece with Pistachio and Parakeet dye inks.   I stamped a sentiment from the Simply Sentiments stamp set using Midnight ink.     I used the Heart Spots stamp set and stamped on Premier Polar White cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.  I die cut my images with the Heart Spots Confetti Cuts and created a small scene for my Scalloped Rectangle.    I used Elemental Stripes to create my tone on tone background.


I hope that I have inspired you to look at your Confetti Cuts and see what other shapes you can create with them!   I hope you give this technique a try!
