CONFETTI CAMERA WITH TRICIA

Hello!   I am up this week on the Confetti Camera sharing with you a unique card and gift idea for the holidays that you can share with a friend.   Around the holidays, I am always looking or ways to add my crafty touch to my holiday gifts.   Tags are the best way to add that little something to a present.   So I thought I would make a set of tags in a cute little bag to share with a friend.  
 
 
 
 
 
First up, I made a card using the Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator.   Instead of the card opening up with a fold, the greeting can be placed on the pull out Grid Stitched Tag or you could attach a gift card to the pull out and write your message on the back of the card.    I die cut two pieces of Iced Aqua card stock with the Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator and then ran one of the pieces back with my die machine using the Criss Cross Cover Panel to emboss it onto the cut card stock.   I did this for both the card and the bag for my tags.   
 
 
 
 
 
The pull out is made with the new Grid Stitched Tag and die cut from Polar White card stock.  I just added a ribbon and a bell to the top.   
 
 
 
 
I stamped and die cut the images from Holiday Gnomes using Premier Polar White card stock.   I also die cut and stamped some trees onto some green patterned papers from Under the Umbrella and Cheerful & Kind paper pads.   I die cut more Polar White card stock with the Scalloped Bag & Tags Creator Confetti Cut and then die cut a small piece with the border die from Nuts about You to create my snow banks on both the bag and card.    
 
 
 
 
 
 
I stamped several tags out with the Christmas Circles stamp set and then die cut some Iced Aqua, Salsa and Polar White card stock with the tag die.    I added some twine to the package and then stapled it closed and stapled to the back of the bag.  I closed up the bag with a cute red clip and added a bow.   I thought about adding some sequins but I did not want to cover up the embossing.   It adds texture to the plain card stock.  But I did add a little sparkle with my glitter pen to the star and the heart.   
 
 
 
 
 
 
  Happy Holidays to all!   I hope you have a wonderful holiday!  
 
Supplies:

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS | VIDEO

Good morning! Heather here today to share some fun sparkly Christmas tags - just in time for packaging up those Christmas gifts and goodies and making them sparkly and fun!


Here is this week's video detailing my process:



I used lots of different Confetti Cuts for these - mixing together some older and newer ones.

The base of the die is from Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts, die cut from Stone Cardstock.

I used Stitched Rays Cover Panel to add the texture to the tag, and Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts to die cut the sparkly snowflakes.

The sentiment from Triangle Trees is stamped on a thin strip of Iced Aqua Cardstock. A bit of glitter washi tape and a jewel for the center of the snowflakes finishes these off!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

DECEMBER CONFETTI CREATIVE HOP

Hello 'Fetti Fans and welcome to the December Hop!
We are taking a look back on the past year and sharing some new projects, as well.  You'll find a full hop list at the end of this post. 
I've been running a touch behind on things with the holiday season in full swing and a full calendar.  I had set aside all of yesterday afternoon to create and photograph a really cute project that I have an idea for and then IT happened.
What is IT?  IT is walking into my house and thinking "what is that smell?" and then realizing that our senior dog, Abby, had a #2 accident.  We have 3 dogs so a little poo does not scare me.  Of course, it's gross but nothing a little (A LOT) of Lysol and paper towels can't conquer.  The accident wasn't actually IT.  IT was the accident combined with the fact that our Roomba had been running ALL MORNING.  All morning.  Through the poo.  Dragging the poo.  Poo everywhere.
Needless to say, my creative time was spent cleaning and then cleaning the area I just cleaned (repeat, repeat, repeat).  I really wanted to cry, but I laughed as I mopped 3 times with 3 different kinds of disinfecting cleaner and then some. 
. . . . .
So, I don't have a new project to share with you, but I want to share with you my top 3 favorite projects from this year...

Hi!  Jeanne here today with our Confetti Camera feature.  We’ve been focusing on friendship, and after recently returning from vacation I’ve decided there is no better friend than the one who agrees to watch your pet while you’re away!  It’s got to be someone you trust.. but but more than that.. someone your furry friend adores!

I made this card and gift tag for my good friend who totally meets all the requirements and more.   She literally has my fur baby eating out of her pocket!   No easy task when your pet is a 100 lb Akita!
 
The base of my card is the Diamond Stripe Square Confetti Cut.  I layered beautiful shades of blue Confetti Colors card stock uner the striped openings. 
 
It’s the perfect setting for the Furever Friends pup In his soft bed!   
 
I surrounded the pup with lots of tennis balls because I know he loves to play catch!
I used the Two Way Stripes Tag Layer die to repeat the angled stripes on the card.  Repeating the pattern and colors help coordinate the card and the tag. 
I know my friend will adore this card and tag on her favorite box of chocolates  as much as she loves my pup. 
 
Supplies:
Card Finished Size 4 ¾” x 4 ¾”
Stamps | Furever Friends
Dies | Diamond Stripe Square Confetti Cut, Furever Friends, Two Way Stripes Tag Layer

Confetti Camera with Amy Kolling

 

Hello Reverse Confetti friends!  Amy Kolling here hosting the Confetti Camera theme:  For a Friend!  It's so much fun to add a homemade touch to a gift for a friend!

 I created this card and gift duo perfect for a friend.  Let's start with the mini hoop.  I started with a 3" hoop and fitted it with a piece of muslin.  The outline of the Hello Confetti Cuts was drawn using a fine tip black marker onto the muslin.  Using embroidery thread, the outline was stitched using black thread.  This took a while but it was worth it in the end.  I love felt and I knew I wanted to embellish the bottom with some SIMPLE felt florals.  Using my favorite stamp and die set, Blooms 'n Buds, I die cut 3 flowers and leaves out of felt.  To the centers of the yellow part of the flower, I stitched the center with black thread.  After arranging the flowers at the bottom of the hoop, I added the leaves.  When I was happy with the layout, the flowers and leaves were added using a hot glue gun.

 

For the matching card, I created a similar layout onto a white Stitched Rays Cover Panel using the same Blooms 'n Buds Confetti Cuts.  Again, simple but effective.  I added a layered Hello Confetti Cut done in Midnight Cardstock along with a supporting "friend" sentiment from A Friend Like You.  As a finishing touch, I added white iridescent gems.

Hello! Heather here today to share a unique twist on a Christmas card - creating a Christmas tree using Tall Triangles Confetti Cuts! I was flipping through my collection looking for another die, and as this one flew past, all I could see was a Christmas tree! Maybe I have Christmas on my mind, but I'm so glad it worked out just like I pictured in my head at that first glance!
Here is this week's video detailing my process:



I love using the Stitched Rays Cover Panel for backgrounds on my cards - it works for almost any occasion! And even on white cardstock like this it is stunning!
I also love adding splatters to my projects - and thought the gold and white splatters added such a festive and fun touch to this card.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

NEW VIDEO WITH HEATHER

By Reverse Confetti

Happy Thanksgiving, 'Fetti Fans!  We have another fabulous video to share with you today!
 . . . . .
Greetings! Heather here today to share a fun night sky scene using alcohol inks to create the night sky background! Alcohol inks have been so popular lately - and are so addicting and simple to play with!


Here is this week's video detailing my process:



It is so fun to watch the inks react and do their magic - no two backgrounds will ever be the same! And the sparkly silver mixative is so perfect for this background of a night sky.

I absolutely love how the coordinating Confetti Cuts for Snow Bunnies not only cut out the outline of the image, but some of the cute inner details - isn't that fun?

How do you feel about alcohol inks? Have you tried them yet? I was so fascinated watching other crafters use them, that I couldn't resist for long - and I'm glad I gave in and finally tried them. I was intimidated for quite a while, but they really are super simple and fun! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
