Hello and Happy Monday, ‘Fetti Fans!

Last week I posted my very first video and I’m here today to share my next one.  I’ll be honest with you and say that I like this one a lot better.  The orientation and some of the editing is changed up.  I know that I still have a bit to learn, but I hope that you will watch and like this one about coloring with PolyChromos on white pigment ink:

Wednesday in the Works

By Jen del Muro
on August 23, 2017

Hi there, Amy S. joining you today with a Wednesday in the Works project and video. Today I’ve combined some warm pinks and oranges with floral images from Build A Bunch to create a batik-inspired summery background.

. . . . .


I stamped and embossed a Premier Polar White panel with floral images from Build A Bunch, then did some heavy ink blending with FlamingoRustMagenta, and Peach.

To help give the panel a fabric feel, I creased the paper, distressed the edges, and swiped both top-to-bottom and side-to-side with my Magenta ink pad.

The sentiment, from Sentiment Essentials, was stamped in Midnight, die-cut with the coordinating Sentiment Essentials Confetti Cuts, placed in front of a Premier Polar White stitched circle die-cut, and accented with one small Build A Bunch flower.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Build a Bunch, Sentiment Essentials

Confetti Cuts dies: Sentiment Essentials, Pop-Up Circle

Ink: Midnight, Flamingo, Rust, Magenta, Peach

Paper: Premier Polar White card stock

Other: white embossing powder, distressing tool, ink blending tools and foam, fun foam

Hi ‘Fetti fans, it’s Amy Sheffer here today with a new Wednesday in the Works installment. I got some questions last month about the nail polish marbling technique that I used for my #beastmode blog hop card, so I thought I’d make a quick video to show you how to do it.

I turned one of those beautiful marbled panels from the video into today’s card.

I used the marbled panel as my background, then combined a stamped and die-cut sentiment using You’re So stamps and a word die from the You’re So Confetti Cuts die set.

I adhered the torn vellum with some liquid adhesive behind the word die-cut and behind the sentiments.

For extra good measure, I wrapped some metallic embroidery floss around the vellum panel too, which helped hold it in place.

Thanks for joining me today! Hope you’re inspired to do some nail polish marbling too. Warning: it’s addictive!

Howdy, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s Thursday and time for another great CONFETTI CAMERA!


A little bit about Confetti Camera…

In this weekly (Thursday) 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 each of our designers are working on Celebrations!  However, there is a little something different…I have challenged them to forego birthdays and to “think outside the card.”  I think you are going to LOVE what you see!

A couple of things to note:

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

2) Each designer will follow the same theme 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.

In the spotlight today is our Kiwi pal, the very talented…Sarah Gough!

. . . . .

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, my thoughts turned to the gorgeous Rose Garden stamp set – and how great it would be to send a bouquet of roses that’ll last a little longer than real ones! With that thought in mind I made a card-in-a-box using lots of Confetti Cuts to create a garden of blooms celebrating Mother’s Day.

To create a box this size, I started with a 5×11″ piece of cardstock, scoring at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″ then again at 1.5″. Trim off a 1″ piece and set aside. Cut off the end of the cardstock (crosshatched in the photo) leaving a little tab and cut down the smaller scored lines to create flaps. Using the 1″ piece, create two or three inserts and adhere inside the box as shown (one of mine bent as I put it inside the box, this won’t matter in the long run). Your box will still fold flat, but will also stand upright with sections you can decorate with pop ups!

Using thin strips of acetate and glue dots, I stamped and cut lots of roses and leaves from Rose Garden using the Rose Garden Confetti Cuts. Some are adhered directly to the thin strips of cardstock, others are “floating” on acetate. As I fill the box, I fold it down to see how the flowers will layer when the box is flat.

I also used the Whole Lotta Happy stamp set, the Give Thanks Label Confetti Cuts and added borders to the flaps with the Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts. I used the Leafy Confetti Cuts to add extra leaves and the Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts for some sparkly accents.

When it’s all finished the card-in-a-box should lay relatively flat for easy mailing!

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and HAPPY SPRING!

We’re celebrating the flowers blooming and birds chirping with an inspiration filled SPRING FLING Blog Hop!


We’ll be giving away a $15 gift certificate to one lucky commenter, too!  Just leave a comment at each stop along the way for your chance to win.  Comments will be open today through Sunday with a winner announced next week.

. . . . .

My project today is a sweet and simple treat basket that I created from the GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts die set (how-to information below)…


The “main image panel” on the front of the treat basket is created from the FLOWERS FOR MOM and BUTTERFLY DREAMS Confetti Cuts die sets.  I stamped the “happy spring” sentiment (from HIPPITY HOPPITY) on the banner in white pigment ink…


The treat basket is filled with paper grass and a little plastic carrot “egg” that I picked up at Hobby Lobby (I think)…


While this treat basket is all about “spring,” it will be easy to switch up the color/theme for year-round fun!!

How to create this treat basket…

  • Cut 4 of the GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG from cardstock
  • Cut one 3 3/16″ square from same cardstock as tag
  • Score tags at 1″ from the top of the tag & 3/4″ from bottom
  • Adhere top end of tag to each side of square
  • Wrap with patterned paper and embellish
  • Optional: add a 1/2″ handle (mine started at 8.5″ in length and is adhered almost an inch in on each side)
  • Fill it up and give to a family member or friend

. . . . .

It’s time to get hoppin’ and see what the rest of the Crew came up with!

There is about to be cuteness overload happening here!




and the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set…


. . . . .

Aren’t they just the cutest!?  I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with them and creating Easter and Spring inspired projects like this one…


This lil’ guy is stamped and die cut and layered on top of the tag die found in the IN THE BAG Confetti Cuts die set.  I ran that tag through my Big Shot with the WOODGRAIN Confetti Cuts die to get the woodgrain debossing on it.  Behind the tag is the new “Hippity Hop Hop” QUICK CARD PANEL.  All of it is attached to a little box that I made quickly from a 12″ x 12″ piece of cardstock and the new EDGERS Confetti Cuts.

Here’s how I did it…

Cut a 12″ x 12″ sheet of cardstock to 9″ x 9″ and then score at 2.5″ and 3″ from each side.  Cut out and discard the corners as shown…


Using the EDGERS Confetti Cuts with the circle point on the edge, cut one side.  Note, I tucked the other flaps in to go through the Big Shot.


Fold together and mark the top of the hole.

Cut the tab hole just above your mark (not shown).


Slide tab into hole to close


Viola…darling little box ready for you to fill and embellish.


Detail shots…

Can I just say that I LOVE the Cappuccino TWINE!!



. . . . .

My second project using the new HIPPITY HOPPITY stamps and Confetti Cuts dies is inspired by a project that Confetti Crew member (and bestie extraordinaire) Susan Liles did last month.  You can see her project HERE.

Here’s my Easter/Spring take on it using these new products…


I first cut out three MINI ENVIES from yellow cardstock and then layered a strip of the new green polka dot QUICK CARD PANEL along with a piece of pink striped patterned paper.  The bunny and carrot are popped up on top.


I haven’t shown these to my daughter yet, but when I do I am sure that she is going to want to make a bunch more to pass out to her friends!


. . . . .

We also have a new PRETTY PANEL that we are adding to the line up this month!




As a quick reminder, all of the PRETTY PANELS are made to work with the LOVE NOTE, STAMPED NOTE and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die sets.  We love being able to give you more bang for your buck and have products that work together to give you more creative options!

I created this next set of cards using the new PRETTY PANELS: BOLD LINE along with several previously released products.  Again, showing how many of our products “play nice” together…


Each of these card uses a white card base and then a strip of cardstock set at a diagonal to complement the main image panel.  All of these cards also feature the STAMPED NOTE Confetti Cuts die set and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts die set.


The word “love” is cut twice (red and white cardstock) with the LOVEY WORDS Confetti Cuts.  I then embellished the PRETTY PANELS: BOLD LINE with a heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set and leaves from the LEAFY Confetti Cuts die set.


This card also features hearts from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set and “THANKS” from the THANKS TAG Confetti Cuts die set.

Detail shot…


The third and final card features the HELLO Confetti Cuts along with the sun from the SUN ‘N CLOUDS Confetti Cuts die set and, once again, a heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set…


Detail shot…

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

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.


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:


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


  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!

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

It’s Wednesday and time for WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS exactly?…

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. Today, Confetti Crew member, Amy Sheffer, shares a fun technique with wow factor!



Hi ‘Fetti Fans, Amy here today, with an easy masking technique that gives a fun “how’d she do that?” look.


I’ve used the technique to stamp the ornament on today’s tag. The basic steps are to first die-cut a shape, then, using the negative of the die-cut as a mask, repeatedly stamp a sentiment (or small image) to fill the unmasked area.


First, I die-cut a Gift Card Holder Tag in white card stock along with a second Gift Card Holder Tag from recycled copy paper (this will be the mask, you could also use masking paper). Within the copy paper die-cut, I’ve cut out a large circle using one the dies in the Circles ‘N Scallops die set.


I used a bit of washi to adhere the copy paper tag mask to the card stock tag, then repeatedly stamped the word “Christmas” from Winter Word Coordinates in light grey ink. Before removing the mask, I used a sponge dauber to apply some soft gray shadowing around the outer part of the circle. Remove the mask to reveal your stamped and sponged ornament.


I embellished the bottom of the tag with some black and white striped paper, adorned the ornament with some holly and felt berries (both from the Holly Confetti Cuts die set) as well as a “merry” die-cut (from Winter Words Confetti Cuts), then finished with a Hang Ups tag topper, some Honeydew twine, and some gold sequins.

. . . . .


Hi ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy here today, working with one of my favorite materials — felt. I’ve used the Layered Snowflake die set to create a dimensional ornament perfect for hanging on the tree or using as package toppers.



3 large snowflake base piece die-cuts, one out of felt, two out of card stock

3 medium snowflakes, white felt

3 small snowflakes, aqua felt

2 buttons

1 icicle dangling bead

silver sequins

metallic silver embroidery floss

needle and thread (not shown)

Reverse Confetti WITH LOVE stamp set

Reverse Confetti LAYERED SNOWFLAKE Confetti Cuts die set (not shown)



  1. Onto the large felt snowflake base, layer one white snowflake, then one aqua snowflake, one white, and one aqua.


  1. Machine stitch through all layers along the center of the snowflakes.


  1. Press the seams to give the snowflake dimension.


  1. Optional. I took a third white medium snowflake, cut it in half and adhered each half with fabric glue to the gray backer piece. (That extra felt layer made the stack too thick to stitch easily, so this was my solution.)


  1. Adhere sequins with fabric glue.


  1. Adhere felt snowflake to a large card stock snowflake for stability. Sew a dangling bead to the bottom (or hang with a jump ring)


  1. Add a hanging loop to the top and embellish the snowflake with buttons.


  1. I plan to make these to use as package toppers, so I’ve stamped the “to/from” from With Love to a second card stock snowflake base, heat embossed in white, and adhered to the back of the ornament.

Here’s how it looks in action on a tree:


Thanks for joining me today. Happy Wednesday!

Hello and welcome to DAY TWO of our HAPPY FALL-IDAYS event, ‘Fetti Fans!


I hope everyone enjoyed the first day of this special online showcase event that we are hosting this week!  I’ve had a blast making and sharing my projects, as has the rest of the Confetti Crew Design Team.  There are links to those posting towards the end of this post.

Today is all about Thanksgiving (and, my apologies for being a bit late for Canadian Thanksgiving!).

You are going to see some fabulous place settings and other projects (plus much more) from the Confetti Crew today, but I went in a slightly different direction with my project, a paper wreath…


Coming up with something for today was troubling me for a little white, but then while playing with some stuff on my desk (namely the STITCH FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set), a light bulb went off and this little wreath was born.


Here’s how I created this (it’s really quite simple!)…

I cut an “O” with 2 circles dies (I used my larger Spellbinders circles that I keep in my stash).

Then I cut out 20 of the flag ended panels from the STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set.  I folded them over the “O,” starting at the bottom, then the top, then the sides and then filling in between.  I overlapped 4 of the cuts for a little added dimension, without it being too overpowering.

I noticed that the center did not look quite as “clean” as I would like, so I grabbed my large wreath from the new WREATHS Confetti Cuts and cut one from kraft (I didn’t pop out the centers) and then one from a woodgrain patterned paper and layered them on top of each other and then folded/”fluffed” up the sides on the top one…


It still needed a little something to decorate it and I grabbed the PUMPKIN PATCH stamp and Confetti Cuts, along with the LEAFY Confetti Cuts die set and stamped and layered.  I added a few enamel dots and “dew drops” for a bit of texture and detail to finish it off.


When it was all done and just sitting there, I wasn’t immediately sure how to present it.  A quick call to the bestie for a creative chat and I added a paper straw and popped it in a bunch of mums, making it the perfect hostess gift or centerpiece.


Of course, either of my kids would have loved to have it hanging on their door, too.  It was easy enough that I may just have them make their own!

. . . . .

As you know, there is A LOT more inspiration being shared today by the Confetti Crew.  Happy Fall-idays!
