WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By Jen del Muro

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

Today on WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS we have quick, easy and fun technique to share with you to add texture and dimension to your projects.  Be sure to check out Amy’s Instagram later today, too, where she’ll have a quick how to video on how she did this darling card!

It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  It’s us taking a closer look at how something is created, etc.  A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between.

Hello ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy Sheffer with this week’s Wednesday in the Works. Today I’m sharing a creative stitching idea using the Edge Essentials Confetti Cuts and some embroidery floss. I’ve had this idea in my head for two months, so I’m excited to finally share!

RC_WIW052515_1

What I’ve done is to create the look of preschool/kindergarten writing paper using stitched lines. I used one of the Edge Essentials dies to cut three rows of holes along the bottom of a card stock panel. Then, using a combination of blue and red embroidery floss, I stitched the lines. I used a running stitch, which is basically up one hole, down the next, and so on.

RC_WIW052515_3

The running stitch gives you the dashed line that you see on the middle line. For the top and bottom lines, I stitched the length of the card, then reversed direction to fill in all the open stitches. All that was left was to stamp and die-cut two apples from All Apples and adhere them to the bottom right corner.

RC_WIW052515_2

Everything is mounted onto a white card base for a clean and simple look. Thanks for joining me today! I hope you’re inspired to look at all the different ways you can use your Confetti Cuts dies!

I have a couple of projects to share with you today and then I am going to send you on your way to see all the Confetti Creativity that the Crew has for you!

First up is a project using the new BITTY BANNERS stamps and Confetti Cuts.  I paired it with the (previously released) YOU ARE A STAR Confetti Cuts and SO STRIPEY stamps for a fun, cute and easy lil’ treat…

I hot glued the stars onto paper straws that I cut down and added them into mini corrugated cups filled with coordinating Sixlets candies.  This would be such a great addition to a place setting for a birthday, graduation, wedding, etc.

As a finishing touch, I added the gold sequins.

These can easily be personalized with just a switch of colors…so many possibilities!

. . . . .

With the end of the school year just around the corner, I find myself wanting to create for my kiddos’ teachers.  I absolutely love the new ALL APPLES stamps and Confetti Cuts dies and I know that I will be reaching for them a lot for upcoming Teacher Appreciation and end of the year projects.

Apples2

I used the new INSTA-FRAME Confetti Cuts die directly on my card front and added the black cardstock panel that I stamped the dashed lines on (from the RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW stamp set).

I love this sentiment!

Introducing…

ALL APPLES

AllApplesStamps_ProductImage

And, the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…

AllApplesCC_ProductImage

. . . . .

I love creating for my kids teachers!

The cards I am sharing with you today are end of year teacher cards.  Even if it’s not Teacher Appreciation or end of the year stuff, it’s always nice to send them a note of thanks, etc. during the year and this set is full of great apple images perfect for that!

AppleCard1

This card features one of the new panels from the SCHOOL DAYS Quick Card Panels along with the “Thanks for a Great Year” apple image.  The other apple is cut with the ALL APPLES Confetti Cuts and then stamped with the large dots from the WHOLE LOTTA DOTS stamp set.  One of the great things about this Confetti Cuts die set is that it can be used with or without the stamp set.

Detail shot…

EdgeEssentials

The details on this card were created using another new Confetti Cuts die set!

Introducing…

EDGE ESSENTIALS

EdgeEssentialsCC_ProductImage

On the card above, I used the small scalloped edge and the dot dies from this Confetti Cuts die set.  I love the finishing touch that they give to this card.  Each of the dies measures 5.5″ so that you can use them on entire panel either horizontal or vertical.  I’ve had a lot of fun with this die set and look forward to creating unique edges on my projects.

. . . . .

AppleCard2

Much like the card above, this card uses the same sentiment and shows layered apples as a main image mounted on a panel from the SCHOOL DAYS Quick Card Panels.

Detail shot…

AppleCardDetail1

. . . . .

I loved creating the box that I showed in THIS post.  With that idea in mind, I set off to create a box from scratch.  Here’s what I came up with (tutorial below)…

AppleBox2

This came together very easily and added the ALL APPLES images along with a belly band to create a fun and easy teacher gift.  It’s filled with apple flavored Jolly Ranchers (yum!)…

Apples1

As you can see from the photo above, the edges of the box are pinked using the pinked edge die from the new EDGE ESSENTIALS Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shot…

AppleBox1

Dots along the belly band created with the dotted die from the new EDGE ESSENTIALS Confetti Cuts die set (I love this sweet simple detail!)…

AppleBox

. . . . .

As promised above, here is a tutorial on how to create this box.  (Psst…sorry these aren’t the greatest tutorial pics).

1. Cut 2 pieces of cardstock measuring 3″ x 10″  and score at 3.5″ and 6.5″.

DSC_0765

2. Cut the edges of each end using the pinked edge die from the EDGE ESSENTIALS set.

DSC_0766

DSC_0767

3. Score .75″ from each end to create a fold over “flap.”

DSC_0769

4. Lay panels across each other and adhere together.

DSC_0770

From here, you will fold sides up and embellish as desired.  A belly band is necessary to have the sides stay up.  The width, etc. of this will depend on what you desire for your project.  If you do create one (or more!) of these, please share with us on Instagram or Facebook!

. . . . .

We have more product introductions for you today!  I think you’ll agree that this is one of those “must-have” “everyday use” type of stamp sets (and coordinating Confetti Cuts dies).  Introducing…

BITTY BANNERS

BittyBannersStamps_ProductImage

The coordinating Confetti Cuts die set features 1 die to cut the Bitty Banners image and also one that is slightly larger for layering…

BittyBannersCC_ProductImage

. . . . .

This set plays well with just about every one of our other products, making it super fun to mix and match products for lots and lots of fun and creative projects!  In addition, it covers just about anything you could be making a card, tag, etc. for!

My first project using the BITTY BANNERS stamps and Confetti Cuts dies is a tag that has a few other products worked in, too…

CongratsTag

The base of the tag is the TOPPED OFF TAG Confetti Cuts and along with the new BITTY BANNERS stamps and Confetti Cuts dies, I have added LEAFY, BUTTERFLY DREAMS and HANG UPS Confetti Cuts.  Do you spy one more, too?  Yep, that’s a new topper for the TOPPED OFF TAG!  Introducing…

SQUARED OFF TAG TOPPER

I have one more project (and product!) to share with you today before I send your way to see all of the Confetti Creativity from the Confetti Crew.

I’m going to guess that you want to see the new product before my project.  Introducing the “sister” the DOUBLE PANEL HEARTS

DOUBLE PANEL CIRCLES

DoublePanelCirclesCC_ProductImage

Like the heart version of this, these 2 dies are meant to be layered together for a fun and detailed panel to add to your cards, layouts and tags.  They can also be used on their own.

For this card, I cut 2 sets of the DOUBLE PANEL CIRCLE Confetti Cuts.  The bottom layer is in navy and the top in white.  I love the “pop” that it gives to this baby card…

BabyCard

Detail of the DOUBLE PANEL CIRCLES (along with the PRETTY PANELS: STRAIGHT STRIPES that is layered over the rounded rectangles from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set)…

BabyCardDetail1

The “oh, baby” BITTY BANNERS is stamped in navy, cut with coordinating Confetti Cuts die set and layered on a gray heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set…
