LET’S CELEBRATE QUICK CARD PANELS

May15QCP_ProductGraphic

QUICK CARD PANELS are limited edition premium heavyweight cardstock panels measuring 3.25″ x 4.5″.  Each package contains 2 of each 8 printed design.  They are designed for A2 card making, but you can easily use them on all of your paper crafting projects!  We will have a new set of QUICK CARD PANELS with each release. Grab them while you can, because once they’re gone, they’re gone!

You’ll see the new limited edition QUICK CARD PANELS used on a variety of projects from the Confetti Crew.  We can’t wait to see how you will use them on your creations!

I think you are just going to love the latest little critter we are adding to our line of stamps illustrated by Dawn Machell.

Introducing (in line with the theme of our birthday)…

MONKEY BUSINESS

and the coordinating Confetti Cuts…

. . . . .

My first project today features this sweet lil’ monkey on a tag cut with the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die (previously released) from 2 of the new LET’S CELEBRATE Quick Card Panels…

MonkeyTag1

I used 2 of the sentiments from the set, along with the balloons to make this a fun and festive tag to attach to a birthday gift.

MonkeyTag3

Both the monkey and the balloons are colored with Copic markers.  I added a little bling to the balloons with a glitter pen.  It’s the perfect amount of sparkle!  Can you see the shimmer?

GlitterBalloons

. . . . .

Consider yourself warned, because you may just be seeing a whole lot of this lil’ guy (gal?) around here!  I had a blast using my Copics again…without spending hours to get an image colored.  And, it was so fun posing him with the coordinating images from the set.

Here (s)he is with a banner and some gifties, along with a sentiment that is perfect for kiddos and adults!  Did you notice the polka dots on the ears?  That’s one of the details included in the stamp set.

MonkeyCard1

The presents are paper pieced.  Paper piecing is one of my favorite techniques for a few reasons.  1) It’s easy 2) It’s not messy 3) You can coordinate just about any image by doing it!

The next set that I am so happy to introduce today is another set that is perfect for celebrations…like Reverse Confetti turning 2!

Introducing…

PARTY HATS

PartyHatsProductGraphic

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

PartyHatCCProductGraphic

I LOVE this set!  It is so much fun to ink and up and play with!  Anyone else thinking Santa hats for year round use? Yea, me too!

Here’s a little party combo that I did using these new PARTY HATS stamps and Confetti Cuts dies…

TimeToPartyDuo

When I was coordinating the design of the Confetti Cuts die set I knew that it had to include a detail that I could make into a fringe to put along the edge of the hat.  I just love how this came out!

Photo tutorial below.

This favor/gift bag came together quite quickly using our TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  The orange polka dot paper is one of the panels from the new LET’S CELEBRATE Quick Card Panels.

PartyTote1

Nom.Nom.

TimeToPartyDuo1

Here’s a little “how-to” on the fringe…

Using the PARTY HAT Confetti Cuts die, cut 3-5 strips of tissue paper.

TissuePaper

Stack the pieces and fold in half as shown.

FoldedTissuePaper

Using sharp pointed scissors, snip the fringe.  Be careful not to cut all the way through.

FringeApart

Separate and lay flat.

Fringed

Apply a thin (I mean super model thin) strip of glue to the bottom of your stamped and die cut hat.

TissuePaperGlue0

Repeat glue and tissue paper layers until all layers have been adhered to the hat.

TissuePaperGlue1

Allow to set (doesn’t have to be completely dry).

TissuePaperAll

Using your fingers, the tip of a pin or with a light touch using your scissors, ruffle the fringe until you achieve the desired poofiness.

TissuePaperFringed

(Repeat for the puff on top of the hat.)

I added a rhinestone to the center for a little bit of bling, too!
