WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

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.  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 SARAH GOUGH has a super fun card and video to share!

Sarah here, sharing how I like to color the trophy from the Winning stamp set with Copics. I’ll also show you the assembly of this patriotic looking card using SO STRIPEY, WINNING, WINNING Confetti Cuts and OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts!

Here’s my take on this regal combo…

08colorcard

This scrappy card is perfect for sending a sweet hello to a friend.

The gold cardstock is cut with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER die.  I love the glimmer of the gold, which I mirrored with the sequins.

The main panel consists of the rounded rectangle from the CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set, CHEVRON PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts and the heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

The “oh hello” sentiment from the ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS set is stamped with white pigment ink on the navy panel.

Hello and Happy Sunday!

It’s time for the June Creative Blog Hop and you are going to LOVE what the Confetti Crew has come up with for this hop!

So, grab that cuppa joe, sit back and click on through this amazing hop featuring cards and much much more!  Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store.  Comments are open until this Tuesday at noon and the winner will be announced on the Wednesday in the Works.  Happy hopping and good luck!

In case of a break in the hop or if you miss a hopper, there is a full list of participants at the end of this post.

. . . . .

One of the things I do when designing new products is keep the previously released products in mind. By doing so, I make sure that products are compatible with each other and it’s easy to mix ‘n match them.  I love to mix and match stamps and dies and that is just what I did on this fun and patriotic banner project…

So, how many Reverse Confetti products can you name on this project?  Two? Three??  How about SEVEN! It is so fun to be able to use products over and over and mix ‘n match to create new and unique projects!
