WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Welcome to a very special edition of WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!  Confetti Crew member, Amy Sheffer has a few fabulous creations to share with you!

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.

. . . . .

Hello, Reverse Confetti friends, it’s Amy here today with some cute swivel-flap Valentine riddles. As soon as I saw the square tag, it reminded me of this little swivel cover on my bed post that covers up a bolt hole. To access the bolt, just rotate the cover. Inspired by that, I thought I’d try making some sort of project where the tag rotates and underneath is a surprise. First, I thought about having the tag cover a circle window to a treat box. But then lift-the-flap books came to mind, and I knew some punny Valentine riddles would be perfect! I looked up lots and lots of Valentine riddles, keeping Reverse Confetti products in mind, and came up with quite a few ideas using various images and sentiments, plus some computer-generated text. I’m showing four of those ideas today.

First, a look at all four Valentines closed, where you can see the riddles:

RC_WIW0114_valentinequartet

And here they are with the tag rotated out of the way to reveal the answers:

RC_WIW0114_valentinequartetopen

I started all four Valentines with the large rounded rectangle from DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts. Each riddle and answer is printed and/or stamped on a SQUARE TAG and tied onto the rounded rectangle. I kept the same color scheme for all four, embellishing each with a white embossed row of dots from I LIKE YOU, a row of hearts from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, a strip with a stamped XOXOXO from CRUSHIN’, and a “Happy Valentine’s Day” sentiment from PUPPY LOVE. The riddles are all done with computer-generated text, then stamped with dotted lines from ROUNDABOUT.

Bat Valentine:

The bats are from SPOOKY CUTIES. Inside, I stamped Batty for You from SPOOKY SENTIMENTS, the word “I’M” from SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS, and another bat from SPOOKY CUTIES.

Envelope Valentine:

The envelope and postal stripes are from NORTH POLE WISHES. Inside is computer generated text die-cut into a scalloped circle using a die from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS, and a trio of hearts from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts

 RC_WIW0114_valentine2A

RC_WIW0114_valentine2B

Whale Valentine:

The whale is from HAPPY HARBOR. Inside I stamped “i love you a” from BE A BARISTA onto pink card stock, heat embossed in white, and die-cut into a scalloped circle using CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts. The red heart is die-cut using HEART TO HEART Confetti Cuts, and the word “ton” is done by combining individual letters from SPOOKY SENTIMENTS.

 RC_WIW0114_valentine3A

Pink Car Valentine:

The car is from HERE WE GO. Inside is computer generated text, another scalloped circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS, a heart die-cut from PUPPY LOVE and a smaller heart die-cut from LOVE NOTE.

 RC_WIW0114_valentine4A

RC_WIW0114_valentine4B

It’s fun to look at stamps and sentiments you already have, mixing, matching, combining in new ways! Here are a few other ideas:

  • the fish from HAPPY HARBOR + o-fish-al sentiment from SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS.
  • the fish from HAPPY HARBOR + hugs and fishes (use stamps from I LIKE YOU, making the word “fishes” from individual letters)
  • the plane from HERE WE GO + “it’s plane to see” on the top tag, and “you’re the Valentine for me” underneath
  • one of the sweet poochies from PUPPY LOVE + the “I Woof You” sentiment, also in PUPPY LOVE
  • a Valentine-themed donut with heart sprinkles + “donut you know” on the outside, and “you’re the best” on the inside, all from DONUT YOU KNOW
  • the acorn from SAMMY SQUIRREL or FOREVER FALL + “What did the squirrel say to his true love on Valentines Day?” on the outside and “I’m nuts about you” underneath
  • the cat from SPOOKY CUTIES + “you’re purr-fect for me, Valentine”

I’d love to hear your ideas as well! Thanks for joining me today!

Happy Monday, ‘Fetti Fans!

I gotta say that starting a new week with a new release is pretty darn fabulous!

 

NowAvailable

. . . . .

All of the new release are available in the store now.

To celebrate the new release, the Confetti Crew has put together a fabulous hop with a ton of “Confetti Creativity” using the new stamps and Confetti Cuts dies.

Note, there is a full list of hoppers at the bottom of this post in case there are any breaks along the way.

My first project for you today features the new TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

TreatTote1

Tutorial for how to assemble both of our new totes can be found HERE (video) and HERE (picture tutorial).

To create this TREAT TOTE, I used black and white patterned paper as I really wanted the colors on the “TREATS” panel to pop.  I cut 2 “TREATS” sentiments out…one in orange and one in white and layered them, slightly offset.  The circle reinforcer at the top of the bag is from the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shot…

. . . . .

My second project today features a fun mix of new and previously released Reverse Confetti products…

GotCandy1

I saw these cute bags at Michaels and immediately knew what I wanted to do with them!

First things first…fill them with candy.  I put 2 mini Hershey bars in the bags.

Second…make them cute!

To do that, I cut the rounded top tag from the new TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die (I love when I get to use these dies in fun and different ways) and then made a score mark 1 inch in from the straight end (opposite the rounded end).  This is where the tag is folded over the bag.  I wanted a little more detail, so before I attached them to the bag I used the perforation line from the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts to add the perforation/dashed line.  To attach the tag to the bag, I simply used a small stapler.

On the bottom/round portion of the tag, I added patterned paper and then layered my embellishments.  The Kraft panel is cut from the new GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts and then stamped with the large dots from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS.  I created the spider with circles from the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set, a small circle punch, enamel dots and strips of black cardstock.  The orange panel is cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set and is stamped with a sentiment from SPOOKY SENTIMENTS.

I’ll be giving these out to my kiddos’ teachers for Halloween.

SQUIRREL!

These funny lil’ creatures make me and my children smile as they race across our fence, steal food from the bird feeders and make our dogs go, well…NUTS!

Introducing the latest addition to the QUIRKY CUTIES line, SAMMY SQUIRREL

SammyProductGraphicA

Sammy is a lot of fun to color and paper piece!   As I have mentioned before, even if you are not a colorista these QUIRKY CUTIES images are a lot of fun to play with!

Sammy takes center stage on this birthday card, where I colored him in brown with my Copics.  I colored and cut a couple of the acorns for fun element to add to this card…

Sammy

Here he does a color change into some gray tones…

The scallop edge detail on this card is from the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die (previously released).

. . . . .

In addition to Sammy, I have a couple of more fabulous new Reverse Confetti products to introduce you to!

I know you love packaging just as much as I do, so I am thrilled to introduce the TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

TreatToteProductGraphicA

To use this Confetti Cuts die, you cut 2 along with the rectangular base and assemble.

This Confetti Cuts die set also come with the word “Treats” that you can use on all your sweet gifties.

This sweet lil’ tote will fit snack size goodies, like M&M’s, perfectly.  I actually went out and bought a bag of the snack size treats when I was designing this!

***Please Note: I will have an  assembly (photo) tutorial tomorrow, along with a sneak peek of the other tote that is part of this release (which you may just see on a few of the Confetti Crew members’ sneak peeks today)***

Confetti Crew member, Sarah, has created a great assembly video:

My Halloween inspired TREAT TOTE

Also featured on this Treat Tote is the our new background set which is perfect for everyday use and all the holidays that are coming up quickly.

Introducing SO MANY STARS

SoManyStarsProductGraphicA

I stamped the stars in white pigment ink on the green paper behind the “TREATS” panel.

TreatTote2detail2

I complemented the star background with OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts (previously released) and some color coordinated enamel dots…

TreatTote2detail

I just adore the big pinked edge on this tote!  I cut pieces of tissue paper out with the die so that I could have pinked tissue paper to coordinate with the tote itself…

TreatTote2_top

As a finishing touch, I created a handle with 2 pieces of jute.

. . . . .

There is so much more inspiration to see using these stamps and dies that are releasing on September 8th!

Pretty packaging makes a treat or gift extra special.

NOTE: Many of our die sets are connected by thin wire and may need to be released from each other. To do so, tin snips are best, but these can often easily be taken apart by a gentle hand. Rough edges where the dies were attached may be sanded lightly (careful not to sand the cutting edge).
