Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Hump Day!

We have a fun WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS with Amy Sheffer today!

Are you asking “what exactly 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.

Hello ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy S. here with this week’s Wednesday in the Works. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to stamp a custom background, which is to stamp a random, repeating, multi-colored sentiment background. With Reverse Confetti’s new Confetti Colors and fun Treat Yo’ Self halloween sentiments, this technique is especially fun with the new release!

For my first project, I’ve stamped the “BOO!” sentiment from Treat Yo’ Self in the four current Confetti Colors (Tangerine, Grape Soda, Lime Green, Iced Aqua) plus black onto a Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts die-cut. I added two glittery ghosts that I die-cut with the Halloween Bits Confetti Cuts dies, plus some tinsel, pompom trim and crepe paper, then clipped the tag onto a brown paper sack using a silver glittered clothespin and some Charcoal Twine.

Next I made a super quick card using the same basic idea, this time using the “happy haunting” sentiment, also from Treat Yo’ Self. This time I didn’t repeat to cover the full panel, but stamped a column of sentiments, staggering the amount of indentation each time for variation. Next, I diecut a circle frame out of the upper middle area of the panel, then mounted the panel with foam tape to a green polka dot layer that I pulled out of our Fright Night patterned paper collection. I slipped a pair of spooky ghosts inside the circle frame, tied on some Charcoal Twine, then mounted the whole thing to a black top-fold card base.

I hope you’ll give this sentiment treatment a try! Thanks for joining me today!
