HAPPY FALL-IDAYS: CHRISTMAS

By Jen del Muro
on October 15, 2015

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the third and final day of the first annual HAPPY FALL-IDAYS showcase event!  Over the last 2 days we have shared numerous Halloween and Thanksgiving projects and today we are sharing Christmas projects.  You are going to LOVE what the Confetti Crew has put together today (full link list of those blogging today toward the end of this post)!

. . . . .

My project for you today was really fun to put together and can be enjoyed by all ages…as proven by my kiddos that just want to shake it!

DSC05982

I bought this snow globe last year (or possibly the year before that) at Hobby Lobby and I have just been holding onto it waiting for the right opportunity to use it.  The Santa from the new JOLLY HOLIDAY set, along with the BRANCH OUT Confetti Cuts die set.

Side view so you can see how they stand up…

I cut 2 of the Santa and 2 of the branches so that when I put them down on the “puddle” of hot glue, they would stick and stay upright better.

From the Santa pic above, you can also see the fluffy detail on Santa’s hat (Stickles + Flower Soft).  The tree branches also have Stickles on them for the appearance of snow.  And, of course, the bottom is filled with “snow,” as well.

I wrapped ribbon around the base of the snow globe, as to cover up the opaque plastic that is there and then I decided to dress up the top of the snow globe, too!

The holly leaves are cut from the *new* HOLLY Confetti Cuts die set and I embellished it with a wood ball/bead that is painted red and covered in ultrafine red glitter and topped off with a red rhinestone.  The finishing touch is 2 jingle bells tied off with a piece of Cappuccino TWINE (have I mentioned I love this stuff!?!)

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on December 09, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s time for a special TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY!  You may recall, over the summer Confetti Crew member, Heather, made this card…

I just adore this clever card!  So much so that I asked if she would be willing to make a Christmas/wreath card using the same concept to showcase the versatility of this Confetti Cuts die set.  Well she did, and I am so excited that Heather is here sharing it with you today!

. . . . .

HeatherIntroPic

Hi, everyone! Heather P. here with a festive take on a card I created using  Fresh ‘n Fruity Confetti Cuts.  A few months ago, I created the card above using the lemon and orange dies to create a flower, and paired it with one of the lovely sentiments from Fabulous Flamingo.  I love using dies in unexpected ways, it’s a great way to stretch your stash!

 120914

To create my wreath, I used the following Confetti Cuts dies:

Fresh ‘n Fruity

Donut You Know

Circles ‘n Scallops

Branch Out

Tagged Tote

Here’s how:  I started with a piece of light green card stock, and layered together the circle die from the  Donut You Know Confetti Cuts with the largest circle die from the Circles ‘n Scallops Confetti Cuts.  Once run through my machine, this game me a thin, hollow circle to use a guide for my leaf placement.  I die cut 10 green lemons using the Fresh ‘n Fruity Confetti Cuts, and adhered 5 of them (evenly spaced) to the top of the hollow circle.

120914b

I then used my bone folder to score a line down the center of the remaining die cuts, and adhered them to the hollow circle (using pop dots) between the first set of die cuts.  So easy!

120914c

Next, I used the Triple Chevies Confetti Cuts to die cut some vellum, and adhered the strips to a medium gray card base.  I then stamped one of the sentiments from Seasonal Sentiments in Versamark ink onto a piece of aqua card stock before heat embossing with white powder.  I then adhered the sentiment to the card base with pop dots.

Once I figured out how much of the wreath I wanted to display on my card, I used my guillotine paper trimmer to cut off the excess.  I then adhered the wreath to the card front with pop dots.  To decorate the wreath, I used the bare tree from the Branch Out Confetti Cuts on silver glitter paper, and secured them to the petals leaves with Tombo multi-glue.  I die cut a pink bow from the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts, adhered it to the wreath with pop dots, and covered it with Stickles.  To finish up, I embellished with white enamel dots.

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on November 18, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans…

Happy Tuesday!  Instead of Time for a CARD Tuesday, I thought that I would have a fun winter/Christmas PROJECT to share with you today.

I love working with wood blocks and making lil’ gifties.  HERE is one that I did a couple of years ago (a pin, because my former blog is no longer in use).

. . . . .

TTSBlock

This project makes a wonderful gift without breaking the bank or taking up too much time.  The length of what you will need to make one might seem long, but chances are that you have a lot (most) of this stuff in your craft stash.

Supplies:

Seasonal Sentiments Stamp Set

Confetti Cuts Dies: Branch Out, Let It Snow, Tag Me (flag ended panel)

Ink

Wood Block (Mine is one of the photo blocks from Michaels.  They come with metal swirlies coming out the top, but are easily removed.  I think I picked them up for a $1 each last year).

Wood Balls

Patterned Paper

Felt (I used 2 different colors of green)

White Cardstock

Brown Cardstock

White Paint

Paint Brush

Stencil

Embossing Paste (I used translucent)

Glitter

Sequins

Rhinestones

Ribbon

Button

Linen Thread or Baker’s Twine

Jingle Bells

Hot Glue

Adhesive (Dimensional and Liquid)

TTSBlock3

The How-To:

1. Paint and sand wood block.

2. Adhere pattern paper to front of blog and apply embossing paste over stencil, sprinkle with glitter and allow to dry.

3. Cut tree pieces from felt and trunk from brown cardstock. Add white cardstock detail covered in glitter to bottom of scalloped tree. Assemble, add sequins & rhinestones and add to block using dimensional adhesive

4. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock piece cut from the flag ended panel from TAG ME Confetti Cuts.  Tuck under tree and adhere to block with dimensional adhesive.

5. Cut snowflakes from LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts dies and adhere to block, adding sequins, as well.

6. Paint wood balls, allow to dry.  Cover in adhesive (such as Mod Podge or Martha Stewart Glitter glue) and roll in glitter.  Allow to dry and adhere to base of wood block using hot glue.

7. For the topper, stack ribbon (in a double bow), snowflake (cut from LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts) and button tied off with linen thread and jingle bells.  Attach to top of block with hot glue.

25 Days of Christmas Tags

. . . . .

I think you all know that I LOVE making tags so, of course, when we were invited to participate I jumped at the chance to create a fun tag!

Tag2

This is a shaker tag that is embellished with a 3-dimensional tree (BRANCH OUT Confetti Cuts).

I was recently asked how I create my 3d elements.  It’s really very simple…

1. Cut 4-5 of the same shape and score in half

2. Adhere back together along score line

3. Fan out and adhere to project

Detail of tree, felt heart (LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set) and shaker filled with tiny sequins and sentiment from the new SEASONAL SENTIMENTS stamp set…

Tag4

The bottom portion of the tag (TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die) is cut from white cardstock, covered (generously) in Diamond Stickles and sprinkled with (Martha Stewart) glitter. It is so sparkly!  I love creating sparkly snow like this on my winter/holiday projects!

This last project features a tag cut from the (previously released) TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die set and embellised with a sentiment from the new SEASONAL SENTIMENTS stamp set and a layered tree cut from the new BRANCH OUT Confetti Cuts die set.  As you will recall from yesterday’s post, I was having a lot of fun with gold cardstock and I kept that going on this tag by using it with the trunk/branches of the tree.  It’s the perfect bling-y detail for this tag!
