Welcome to 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.  As noted yesterday, design team members will be taking over some of the blog duties here at Reverse Confetti while I get ready for my family’s big move and prep for the March release…which will be here in a jiffy!

Hi ‘Fetti Fans!

Sarah here today to share a couple of ways you can get even more out of your fabulous Confetti Cuts, namely the Arrow Die! We’re also going to talk about using vellum to tone down color or an intricate design.

It’s no secret I love the Arrow Die, and I’ve used it in two ways on this card. Can’t spot it? Look closely under the vellum!

I cut a few arrows, and laid them out heads and tails style.

I cut a circle frame, and adhered the arrows underneath, trimming off the excess to end up with this funky circle element. Your only limit is your imagination here, try different arrow formations, colors and frame shapes!

I loved the detail in this piece, but also wanted to use some bright, fresh papers. It was all looking a little too busy so using the Love Note die I cut a vellum layer to tone everything down a little. Now I have some awesome detail for my focal layer, without it being super crazy!

I paper pieced the cup from Be a Barista, adding some copic shading to the rim and stamping the sentiment right on the vellum. We all know what a pain vellum can be with adhesive, so I’ve hid my pop dots behind the cup – easy! You’ll also spot the Tag Me Confetti Cuts used as banners behind the focal layer.

Want another little hint for the arrow die? Adhere two together as shown and you get an awesome border that is the exact width of a standard card base!
