TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

By admin
on October 28, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY and I am going to squeeze in another Halloween card here before my favorite holiday is all over with and we are left with a sugar high and an hour less time due to Daylight Savings (ending).  For the record, I’m pretty sure that the person that “invented” Daylight Savings did not have early rising children!  I’m thankful my kiddos are now old enough to occupy themselves for a good hour before coming to wake us with, “I’m huuuunggggrrryyy.”

And, with that I will get off my little Daylight Savings soapbox.

Happy (almost) Halloween…

Wickedly

I started with a white card base, as I almost always do, but then decided to switch it up to kraft.  This made it easier to bring in the broom stamped on kraft without making it look out of place.  This is one of the reasons I don’t glue anything down until the card is d-o-n-e.

Detail shot of the clear embossed stars from So Many Stars on the black cardstock.  I love how subtle they are, yet they add so much…

Wickedly1

The main image panel is cut from the (large) GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die and stamped with a sentiment from CAST A SPELL.  The hat, cut from felt, and the broom are also from the same set/coordinating Confetti Cuts die set.  The bow is from the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set (love that bow!).

One more…

Do you love big sentiments on your cards, scrapbook layouts and other paper crafting project?  So do we!

Introducing IN A BIG WAY

InABigWayProductGraphicA

In addition to introducing you to this great new sentiment set, I also want to show you one of the two new PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts that I used on my first couple of cards for this post.

Introducing PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts…

PPTrianglesProductGraphicA

For these cards, I kept it very clean and simple.  I love how the IN A BIG WAY sentiment pops against the colored PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES layer and white base.

TrianglesHelloCard

The PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts die cut is cut from watercolor paper that I colored with pink, orange and yellow.  I then applied a very thin layer Diamond Glaze so that it would have some sheen to it.

TrianglesHello

As you know, I love dimension.  Here is a shot of how it is all popped up…

TrianglesHelloDetail

I had so much fun creating this card, that I also made it in blue and purple with the “Thanks” sentiment from IN A BIG WAY

Yesterday, I showed you the new TREAT TOTE.  That is just one of the totes that we are releasing this month!

TAGGED TOTE

TaggedToteProductGraphicA

This die set contains SEVEN Confetti Cuts dies!

The base of the tote has a rounded top and we have included a rounded top panel to coordinate with it.  This rounded top panel can be used as a layer on the tote (or any other paper crafting project); however, you can also turn it into a tag.  The small round circle acts as a hole punch and then the larger circle is the reinforcer to be placed over the “punched” hole.  You can easily create handles on the tote using the half oval die.  Also included is a bow die, just as a fun detail.

Here’s my sweet birthday tote using the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set and IN A BIG WAY stamp set…

TaggedToteBirthday

TaggedToteBirthdayStarDetail1

The scalloped edge panel was cut using the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die (previously released).  The stars are cut from the OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set (previously released).

As promised yesterday, I have a photo tutorial on how to assemble the two totes that are being released September 8th.  For the tutorial, I have used the TAGGED TOTE, but note that assembly is the same for both totes.

Step 1: Cut 2 of the totes and one of the base of the tote.  I have trimmed the 2 smaller tabs off of one of the totes.

Step1

Step 2: (Optional) You can create handles on your tote by using the half oval die.

Step2

Step3

Step 3: Adhere the two totes together.

Step4

Step 4: Add the bottom of the tote to the small tab in the center.

Step5

Step 5: Assemble into tote, adhering the 2 other side flaps.

Step 6: Fold the bottom in and adhere tabs to it.

Step6

Now your tote is assembled and ready to be embellished.

Step7

Step8

Here’s mine all done up with the “Thanks” sentiment from the new IN A BIG WAY stamp set…

Notice something else that might be new?  Yep, there’s the other PRETTY PANELS Confetti Cuts die AND the brown panel is the new GIVE THANKS LABEL (more on this one tomorrow!).

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!
