WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS!

Hello ‘Fetti Fans!  We have a very special WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS for you today!  Confetti Crew member, Amy Sheffer, has an awesome project to share along with some great tips!

Before we get started, let me just recap what WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS is…

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.

. . . . .

Hey, it’s Amy here!

Today I’m focusing on combining dies in fun, creative ways, as well as using felt to add warmth to your project.

The first thing I did was to make a felt mitten using the tag from the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set and a medium-size paisley from PERFECTLY PAISLEY Confetti Cuts for the thumb.

Felt is a great way to add texture and warmth to your projects, and works especially well for a mitten! When you’re die-cutting felt, it helps to use a metal shim in order to get a nice, clean cut. If you don’t have a metal shim, try running your die through your machine back and forth a few extra times. Then carefully run a pair of scissors along the cuts lines to ensure a clean break when separating the die-cut from the negative. I topped my mitten with a large snowflake from the new LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts die set and a CIRCLE GARLAND Confetti Cuts die-cut. Both were cut from a white flocked paper (my white felt wasn’t quite white enough for my liking!).

My simple design consists of two light gray fishtail banner strips, a stamped sentiment from SEASONAL SENTIMENTS, and a sprinkling of sequins and buttons to give the impression of falling snow.

And, a little announcement…this is the last color challenge for Reverse Confetti.  Why?  Well, to be honest, my heart just isn’t in this challenge.  I started SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY years ago on my old blog (now defunct since I didn’t update my php) and I want to focus on that being the challenge for Reverse Confetti.  I promise there are some fabulous sketches coming your way!  Stay tuned, the next one is coming up October 1st!

Here’s some more fabulous inspiration from the Confetti Crew for our very last Color Challenge…
