Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

We are so pleased to be part of Tracey McNeeley’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags this year (year #4 for her!) both as participants and sponsors!  You can find out more about how you can win HERE.

25 Days of Christmas Tags

. . . . .

I think you all know that I LOVE making tags so, of course, when we were invited to participate I jumped at the chance to create a fun tag!

Tag2

This is a shaker tag that is embellished with a 3-dimensional tree (BRANCH OUT Confetti Cuts).

I was recently asked how I create my 3d elements.  It’s really very simple…

1. Cut 4-5 of the same shape and score in half

2. Adhere back together along score line

3. Fan out and adhere to project

Detail of tree, felt heart (LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set) and shaker filled with tiny sequins and sentiment from the new SEASONAL SENTIMENTS stamp set…

Tag4

The bottom portion of the tag (TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die) is cut from white cardstock, covered (generously) in Diamond Stickles and sprinkled with (Martha Stewart) glitter. It is so sparkly!  I love creating sparkly snow like this on my winter/holiday projects!

For the icing on this donut, I used white t-shirt paint, clear glass glitter and the “regular” sprinkles from the DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts die set…

My second project today features the new NORTH POLE WISHES stamps and NORTH POLE WISHES Confetti Cuts on a bag cut with the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  This was such a fun and easy project to make.  I can’t wait to make a few more for Christmas packaging…perfect for gift cards and small sweet treats!

One more project before I send you on your way to see all of the fun projects put together by the Confetti Crew and ‘Fetti Friend!

This last project features a tag cut from the (previously released) TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die set and embellised with a sentiment from the new SEASONAL SENTIMENTS stamp set and a layered tree cut from the new BRANCH OUT Confetti Cuts die set.  As you will recall from yesterday’s post, I was having a lot of fun with gold cardstock and I kept that going on this tag by using it with the trunk/branches of the tree.  It’s the perfect bling-y detail for this tag!

PeaceLoveJoyTag1

Heart cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

The black and white striped ribbon is tied off with double bows of red and green linen thread to match the tree and heart.

Christmas Porch Decorating Ideas-01-1 Kindesign

The holidays are just around the corner and we have a few products that are going to become staples in your holiday stash.  You know, those ones that you reach for time and time again because they are fun and easy to use and make all your projects look like a million bucks!

The first set we are introducing today is NORTH POLE WISHES

NorthPoleWishesProductGraphic

This set features 2 large sentiments that fit perfectly on our TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts and on the rounded top panel from the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set (shown in my projects).  There are 7 images to complement the sentiments, including a variety of patterned holly leaves, holly berries, an envelope and what I like to refer to as a “postal element.”

Of course, there is a coordinating Confetti Cuts die set!

NORTH POLE WISHES Confetti Cuts…

CCNorthPoleWishesProductGraphic

My first project today uses the “Express Mail…” sentiment, along with an envelope popped up in the center.  That lil’ heart sealing the envelope is a sprinkle from the DONUT YOU KNOW Confetti Cuts die set that was introduced yesterday.

NorthPoleWishes1

Notice anything else that might be new?  Yep. those chevrons are one of our new Confetti Cuts die sets!

TRIPLE CHEVIES Confetti Cuts die set…

TripleCheviesProductGraphic

This is a single die that cuts 3 different size chevrons at once.  Mix and match to create fun and unique designs!

Detail shot of my card…

NorthPoleWishes1detail

. . . . .

Next up is a couple of tags that I created using the new NORTH POLE WISHES stamp set and coordinating dies…

NPWTags

For these tags, I used the “Holly Jolly” sentiment and added the stamped/die cut holly leaves and berries in the center.

Detail shot…

NPWTags1

For this tag, I dressed it up a little by adding pattern paper on the bottom and for the reinforcer.  In addition, I added bit of bling for a little sparkle and added detail.

. . . . .

Looking for that perfect sentiment set for all your holiday cards?  Look no further!

Introducing SEASONAL SENTIMENTS

SeasonalSentimentsProductGraphic

I couldn’t decide which sentiment to reach for first, so I created a card set with 3 different sentiments!

‘Tis The Season

CardTrio

Peace, Love & Joy

CardTrio_Peace

Holiday Wishes

CardTrio_Holiday

Each of the sentiments is stamped on a white piece of cardstock that I sewed around the edges.

The trees?  Oh, yes, the trees are also new!

Introducing BRANCH OUT

BranchOutProductGraphic

This Confetti Cuts die set features a tree base, a layering triangle, scalloped detail edge and trunk/branches.

For the cards above, I cut the trees from 2 different color felt and then added the trunk/branches cut from brown cardstock.

Can I tell you a secret?  I didn’t really plan on using the sequins in my original design plan. Don’t get me wrong, I love the way they look.  However, they came to the cards as a necessity to cover up a sloppy sewing corner (Peace, Love & Joy card).  Shhhh…don’t tell anyone!

Moving on…

. . . . .

My next card is perfect for the impending Polar Vortex hitting part of the US soon…

ColdOutside

All kidding aside, this is a “cool” sentiment for any of your winter themed cards, tags, scrapbook pages and home decor projects.

The snowflakes are cut from both gold and white cardstock and layered together.  I think I may be ruined for all other snowflake colors now.  I am swooning over the gold!

ColdOutsideDetail1

The snowflakes are from the new LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts die set that features 3 sizes of this great snowflake shape.  Perfect for lots of layers or on their own…

LetItSnowProductGraphic

Since I couldn’t stop at gold snowflakes, I added the gold scalloped panel cut with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die to tie it all together.  Then, I kept going.  Love those gold sequins, too!

ColdOutsideDetail

. . . . .

Did I mention that I was having fun with gold cardstock? Haha… It didn’t stop there!

WarmWinterWishes1

The gold on this card is used with the LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts snowflake dies and with the new PRETTY PANELS: MINI CIRCLE GARLAND Confetti Cuts panel.  This is another one of the eight sentiments included in the SEASONAL SENTIMENTS stamp set and it is stamped on the smaller scalloped circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts.

Detail shot…

WarmWinterWishes1detail

I just love this new Confetti Cuts panel!

. . . . .

Just a reminder: Tomorrow we’ll be hopping with even more inspiration using all the new products!

There is so much more inspiration to see using these stamps and dies that are releasing tomorrow (technically tonight at midnight EST)!

Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win!  Winners will be announced later today.

CONFETTI CAMERA

By admin
on October 30, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Merry Halloween Eve…or as I’ve seen it called Elsaween.  Just how many Elsa costumes will we be seeing tomorrow?  I’m glad that my kids did not go the Frozen  route (I’m Frozened out!) and will be dressing up as a pirate and a vampire.  Yes, my 4 year old is going to be a vampire…”with bloooood,” as he says.  Needless to say, it should be interesting.  Let’s see if I can remember to take pictures!

. . . . .

In this weekly segment, one of the Confetti Crew designers will have the camera on both themselves, as a designer, and on their Reverse Confetti creations. For this round, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from an ANYTHING BUT A CARD project from each of our designers. A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such on Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will answer the same set of questions/show a tip until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member (then it’s a new round with new questions/theme). To see previous Confetti Camera post, simply click on “Confetti Camera” under the categories link on our sidebar.

Today on Confetti Camera we have the very kindhearted and over the top talented, AMY SHEFFER

AmySIntroPic

. . . . .

Hi everyone, Amy here today for this week’s Confetti Camera installment. Today, I’ve created a gift for a very dear friend who is undergoing chemo treatments for breast cancer. She is nearing the end of her eighteen treatments, and I thought I’d give her a way to count down the very last of these treatments and get to the finish line.

 The outer packaging is a matchbook-style wrap, with the bound side held together with a binder clip.

chemocountdown1

For the front label, I used the ENVIE WRAP Confetti Cuts die, topped with a circle from CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts. The sentiment is made up of the word “count” from COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, plus the word “chemo” and “down,” which were done by combining individual letters in the same font from a whole bunch of different sets. I added in some die-cuts for extra design elements: DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts, PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts , and BEAUTIFUL BANNERS Confetti Cuts.

chemocountdown3

 On the inside are three tiny paper gift sacks, one for each chemo treatment that’s left. The outsides of the each bag are numbered, and the inside has a motivational tag (plus a Ghirardelli chocolate square).

chemocountdown2

The #3 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: DIAGONAL STRIPE Confetti Cuts , ARROW Confetti Cuts and LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts. The tag inside has a motivational sentiment from ALL ABOUT YOU.

 The #2 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: CHEVRON Confetti Cuts and TAG ME Confetti Cuts. The sentiment on the inside tag was cut on my Silhouette.

 The #1 bag features the PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts , OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts, and TAG ME Confetti Cuts. The tag inside uses the PRETTY PANELS: TRIANGLES Confetti Cuts again, as well as a sentiment from WINNING and a star accent from OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts.

One last view, from the side:

chemocountdown4

This same idea could easily be repurposed for any type of countdown, or simply used as a mini-album for photos, a collection of favorite quotes, funny kid sayings, even a collection of gift cards for a teacher or coach.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on October 22, 2014

Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Wednesday and time for a fun and kind of technique-y WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS.  I know what you’re thinking…two days in a row with techniques(s).  Parenthesis around the “s” because it’s the same technique, but YES!  I am having quite a bit of fun adding texture to my Reverse Confetti projects.  So much so, that I thought that I would share a little “how to.”

First, 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.  And, as I noted above, I am sharing how to add some fun texture to your Reverse Confetti cards and projects…with embossing paste.

So, here it goes…

First, what you are going to need are a stencil, embossing paste and color/shimmer spray (totally optional, but wait ’til you see how cool it looks with the embossing paste).  Of course, the other elements of your card, too.  I am showing you how to use the stencil and paste on a TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die cut…

Supplies

I cut out one TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die cut and then applied the embossing paste to it using a piece of cardstock (no fancy tools, here).  After I peeled up the stencil and allowed it to dry, this is what it looked like…

TagWithEP

I then sprayed the color spray on top of the embossed tag.  I used the amethyst that is shown above and it made gigantic mess because there was a clog in the sprayer (ugh!).  Fortunately, when I buy things I sometimes buy them in just about every color I can get my hands on.  Then it was off to the aqua color color spray, which I actually like a lot better!

I apologize that I don’t have a stop out picture showing just the die cut, embossing pasted, color sprayed tag, but here it is on my completed card…

(pardon the smudgy marks…that was me trying some new settings on the camera).

TreatsCard2

The main image panel has a sentiment created from the LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS stamp set, along with the “TREATS” die from the TREAT TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  The debossed circle is part of the CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set.

TreatsCard_detail

Recognize the sketch?  Yep, it’s this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  There are still a few more days to play along for a chance to win.  All the details can be found HERE.

Oct14

And, one more shot of the completed card.  I just love the texture and color pop of the tag behind the main image panel!

TIME FOR A…TAG TUESDAY

By admin
on October 14, 2014

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!

Oh.My.Goodness.

I have to tell you that we (I) have been working on some super fabulous stuff for upcoming releases!

Prepare to be amazed.  Seriously.  I am so excited about what is about to be in store in the upcoming months.

I have had several people ask when the holiday release is coming out.  Our winter holiday release is on November 8th.  I promise that it is worth the wait.

For now, it’s TIME FOR A CARD TAG TUESDAY!

I’ve been having a lot of fun using the extra circles that are part of the brand new ROUNDABOUT stamp set.   I stamped them in pink and gold here on a TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die cut (this may be one of my favorite dies EVER) and stamped a sentiment from the new IN A BIG WAY stamp set…

BokehTag

The circles are stamped and stamped again in pink and orange and then I added the sequin stamped in gold for a fun bokeh effect. I didn’t want to take away from the colors in the bokeh, so I kept the reinforcer circle white and then added pink ribbon and tied it off with orange/white baker’s twine.

I’m keeping it short and sweet today, my friends.  Have a great day!

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

By admin
on September 10, 2014

Hello and Happy Hump Day!

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, I am focusing on something super simple and a way to get more out of your stamps and Confetti Cuts dies…create your own embellishments.

I’ve done that here on this tag (TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts) I attached to a few cookies in a cello bag…

CookieTag

I have to admit, that I first reached for some pre-fabricated embellishments that I bought at a big box store, but then I thought better of it as I looked at the CAST A SPELL stamps on my studio desk.

I layered the broom and and witch hat, both cut from the coordinating CAST A SPELL Confetti Cuts die set.  To dress it up a little, I paper pieced the ribbon around the hat and added a star (OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts) topped with a sequin and rhinestone.

Easy peasy, right?

Here’s a few tips to keep in mind when creating your own embellishments…

Keep it simple.  I stamped in black on kraft paper.  Because of the subdued color, it doesn’t take away from the main focal point, but rather enhances it.  I also want to mention, that I brought this project to the CKC convention last week and A LOT of people commented on how they loved the look of the black on kraft.

Still keeping it simple, layer coordinating images to create a fun, clustered look.

Dress it up a little if needed.  I added the paper pieced strip (same paper as the top of the tag) and the embellished star for just a little pop of color and bling.

I’m keepin’ it short and sweet as I have all your orders to get out the door!  Have a great day!
