Hello and Happy Wednesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

We are settling in nicely here in Cypress, TX…and prepping for our first house guests this week.  Needless to say, there hasn’t been a dull moment around here for the past couple weeks! If there are any local ‘Fetti Fans out there, please let me know!

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.

While I have been keeping busy with all of the behind the scenes stuff for Reverse Confetti, my “studio time” has been next to nothing (sniffle, sniffle).  I did, however, get a little play time last week.  I am sure that many of you can relate to what happens when you are away from your stamps/inks/dies for a while…the mojo is a no go.  So, today I want to chat a little bit about the process I went through to create these cards, which ended up being some of my faves of all time.

The first thing I did was grab some paper I that I bought before the move.  I swear it has been calling my name every time I walk into my office!  Next, I thought about a few of the “techniques” or things that I have liked about past projects and I came up with layering the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die along with the large tag from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.  I really love creating “tab tuck” cards (created with the OFFICE EDGES Confetti Cuts – tutorial HERE), too, so I put those few things together and came up with this card trio…

I dressed up the layered LOVE NOTE and TAG ME Confetti Cuts with the new PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts.

The tag is stamped with a sentiment from the PAPER CRANE set and was chosen because I thought it was a great sentiment for these cards that are going to the kiddos’ teachers.

This is just me having some fun with my new camera.  For inquiring minds…SonyHX300.  I have had my eye on a Nikon SLR for a long time, but I haven’t wanted to make that kind of investment.  I came across this one on clearance at Target and I am LOVING it!  Easy to use and I really like the picture quality.
