It’s Wednesday and time for WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS…

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. Today, Confetti Crew member, Amy Sheffer, shares a fun technique!

Hi ‘Fetti fans, it’s Amy here for Wednesday in the Works. As a BIG coffee drinker, I was so happy to see CAFFEINATED CUPS and FOR THE LOVE OF LATTE in the recent September release. The only thing better than a big ol’ cup of coffee is seven big ol’ cups of coffee! Today I’m going to share how I used the masking technique to create this one-layer coffee-lover’s dream come true.

RC102115_1-1

First, I stamped seven coffee cups onto masking paper, then trimmed them out.

RC102115_1-3

You don’t actually need all seven masks for the stamping part, but I liked being able to use the masks to figure out the placement and positioning before stamping. Here they are arranged the way I wanted them to look on the final card.

RC102115_1-4

On the card front, I first stamped the two cups that appear the closest.

RC102115_1-5

After making sure the ink was dry, I covered those two with their masks.

RC102115_1-6

Next I stamped the next-closest cups.

RC102115_1-7

I repeated that process until all the cups were stamped, then removed all the masks.

RC102115_1-8

I replaced the masks as needed in order to stamp the design on the middle section. (You could also do this while you’re stamping the cups in the first place.)

RC102115_1-9

For the coffee ovals, I mixed the swirled one from CAFFEINATED CUPS with two of the oval designs from the previously released BE A BARISTA.

RCcaffeinatedcups_1021_1-2

Last, I colored with Copics and stamped the “you can do it — coffee” sentiment.

Because the Copics do bleed through on many card stocks, I trimmed the panel to card size (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) and adhered to a card base of the same size.

If you’ve never given masking a try, I hope you’re inspired to give it a go! Thanks so much for joining me today!

Let’s get hoppin’ onto the projects for today!

If you were on Periscope with me yesterday afternoon, you got a sneak peek at the projects that I have to share with you today.   Here’s a little something to get you in the spirit of all things fall…

My first project today is a card featuring the new Fall Fun QUICK CARD PANELS along with the new TOO CUTE TO SPOOK stamps and coordinating Confetti Cuts.  The cat is placed on a black cardstock SCALLOPED CIRCLE Confetti Cuts panel.

These bats are just too cute!  I have them flying around clouds cut from WEATHER IT TOGETHER Confetti Cuts.

This next project features the (previously released) TAGGED TOTE and GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die sets along with the new WALK BY FAITH stamp set and PUMPKIN PATCH stamps and Confetti Cuts die set…

DSC05669

I cut the black panel with the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die and then stamp and embossed the WALK BY FAITH sentiment.  I gave it a bit of a chalkboard look by sketching in the white outline and rubbing white pigment ink on the edges and over the embossing.

The pumpkin is cut from the PUMPKIN PATCH Confetti Cuts die set and then I added the leaves and stamped/cut swirlies and stem.  Inside is a bag of candy pumpkins…yum!

. . . . .

Don’t forget to leave a comment here and on each sneak peek post this week for a chance to win!

In addition to having a chance to win just by leaving a comment on the sneak peek posts, we are also running a Facebook promotion.  After you are done checking out the sneak peeks, head on over to OUR FACEBOOK PAGE and look for this graphic pinned to the top of our feed…

NewRelease

On Facebook, simply leave a comment under the graphic.  One person that comments on the graphic by 1pm EST **TODAY** will be randomly chosen to win one a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Winners for both the blog comments and Facebook comments will be announced here on the Reverse Confetti blog as well as on Facebook.

. . . . .

I’ve mentioned a couple of times over the last few posts that we are listening to YOU and some of our product comes about from ‘Fetti Fan comments.  While we can’t do everything that’s suggested, we really do listen and take to heart what you are saying and we see if it will work with the Reverse Confetti product line.

Why am I saying all this?  It’s because I have heard time and time again that you would LOVE LOVE LOVE a Confetti Cuts die for the cup in the (previously released) BE A BARISTA stamp set.   Yes!!…there is now a die for the BE A BARISTA mug.  **But wait, there’s more!!** (said in cheesy voice).  Introducing…

How’s that for “one upping” myself and giving you just want you want?  *wink*

. . . . .

As you know, I can’t seem to put down the new THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts die set.  It pairs perfectly with just about everything and these new coffee products are no exception…

DSC05583

This set is made so that you can mix and match the word “coffee” with the other sentiments in it.  Here, I stamped the word “coffee” in brown ink and then the remainder of the sentiment in black ink.  I added the coffee cup, also stamped with latte and art for the mug itself, along with a matching ribbon and stitched panel (created with the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts die set).

Detail shots…

**NOTE**  The latte art in the BE A BARISTA set will fit in this mug AND the tall cup in CAFFEINATED CUPS!!!  This makes it easy to get more use from your stamps and create lots of fun new projects!

. . . . .

Of course, the THANKS TAG doesn’t have to be a part of *every* project, just like this card featuring the new CAFFEINATED CUPS stamps and dies along with FOR THE LOVE OF LATTE stamps…

DSC05597

This card features one of the quippy little sentiments and the tall cup, latte art and sleeve.  The heart is from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set and I tied it off with some linen thread.  The splatters are from the COLOR ME HAPPY stamp set.
