WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

Today, we have a special WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS brought to you by Confetti Crew Member, Amy Sheffer.

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.

Hi ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy here with a fun peek-a-boo tag for today’s Wednesday in the Works.

RCpeekabootag1-1

I started by filling a Frosted Pillow Box with some candy, then added a pretty tag that I die-cut with the Thanks Tag Confetti Cuts. Because the tag is nearly as large as the box, I decided to cut a window into the tag so that the contents would show through. Here’s what I did:

RCpeekabootag1-2

  1. Die-cut two tags using the Thanks Tag die, one from patterned paper and one from acetate.

RCpeekabootag1-3

  1. Die-cut one Globe from white card stock.

RCpeekabootag1-4

  1. Use the Globe die to cut a circle window in the patterned paper tag.

RCpeekabootag1-5

  1. In-lay the white Globe into the circle window and adhere, using the acetate Thanks Tag die-cut as a backer.

RCpeekabootag1-6

  1. Add a Hang Ups tag topper using a coordinating piece of patterned paper and a metallic gold grommet die-cut.

RCpeekabootag1-7

  1. Embellish with Leafy die-cuts and a metallic gold Lovey Words sentiment.

RCpeekabootag1-8

  1. I wrapped my Pillow Box with a coordinating patterned paper, making sure to cut a Globe opening in it as well.

RCpeekabootag1-9

  1. Note: the 6×6 patterned paper is just a smidge short to fully wrap the pillow box, so I just added some sparkly gold washi tape at the seam to hide the gap.

Thanks for joining me for this week’s Wednesday in the Works!

WEEK IN REVERSE

TGIF ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s been an amazing week here at the Reverse Confetti offices and I hope it has been for you, too!  We’re kicking off the weekend with the new Minion movie and hopefully getting some time by the pool, too…especially since our last couple of poolside attempts have gone up in flames.   I’m getting to that point that I am looking forward to the new school year starting…anyone else with me on this one?

. . . . .

It’s been a few Fridays since our last WEEK IN REVERSE, but we are back with it today.  Check out what the (amazing!) Confetti Crew has been up to this week…

Introducing…

GLOBE

This new 2 piece Confetti Cuts die set pairs perfectly with the coordinating…

MY WORLD

. . . . .

Both my cards today feature these new products.  I love how well they play together. Be sure to check out the links to the Confetti Crew below for even more inspiration!

The GLOBE Confetti Cuts die set takes center stage here.  I pieced the paper inside the globe to resemble water and land, but you can mix and match it for endless possibilities.

For an added detail, I used the DOUBLE EDGE WONKY SCALLOPED BORDER on the right side of the card. I like how it compliments the globe.

I may just have to slip this into hubby’s work bag for a little surprise!

I made this card with the inspiration of giving it to someone that is about to travel or go off to college.  I am sure you know someone that could use a card with this sentiment, too!  There are 7 other sentiments in the MY WORLD stamp set just in case this one isn’t fitting at the moment.

Globe2

The flag detail was added by using the STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set and I added the tab with the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts die set.  In addition, I ran the heart from the globe through with the new WOODGRAIN Confetti Cuts to get the debossed detail that you see.
