WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Wednesday!

We have a great new WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS for you today!

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.  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.

Homemade baking – it’s the perfect gift, especially when packaged up with a gorgeous tag. The Easy as Pie stamp set and Confetti Cuts make giving your sweet treats, well, easy as pie! I’ve used them to create three tags, one for Christmas, one that would look excellent on a hostess gift and one that is just sweet for sweetness sake. I also discovered a fun little Confetti Cut combo, the Thanks Tag works perfectly with one of the very first Confetti Cuts sets ever released!

The black tag is cut from the TAG ME, TOO Confetti Cuts die set and then I just started layering!  The gray polka dot panel is cut from the GIVE THANKS LABEL Confetti Cuts die set and is topped off with the tall coffee cup from the new CAFFEINATED CUPS stamp set (cut with coordinating die set).  To give this card a bit of fall flair, I stamped the “Eat, Drink & Be Scary” sentiment from Spooky Sentiments (a Halloween lovers must have) and topped it off with a bat from the SPOOKY CUTIES stamp set.

Detail shots…

The latte art from the CAFFEINATED CUPS stamp set looks good enough to drink!  Did you know that the latte art from this set and the BE A BARISTA stamp set work with BOTH sets?  Also, the mug from the CAFFEINATED CUPS Confetti Cuts die set works with both sets…just another way to get more bang for your buck with Reverse Confetti!

This card uses the latest Reverse Confetti SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  All details on how to play along and win can be found HERE.

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Hump Day!

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.  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. Today, Confetti Crew member, Sarah Gough,

I’m about to be an Aunt for the first time, any day now in fact. While we wait for an overdue little miss to make an appearance, of course I’ve been shopping! And that means lovely tags on pretty baby bundles. Today I wanted to combine the FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts die with a larger tag base for a combo tag/card that can be filled out and sent on its way just as soon as the little sweetie arrives!

tagcard (1)

I’m using the FOLDED TAG SENTIMENTS stamp set and coordinating FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts along with the LOVE NOTE, TAG ME and TAG ME TOO  Confetti Cuts dies today.

tagcard (3)

I wanted the FOLDED TAG Confetti die to have the same design on both the front and the back, so I cut a second piece and simply trimmed along the score line.

tagcard (4)

This is a great way to cover up using a single sided paper for the tag, and gives a cohesive look. tagcard (2)

I’ve cut the TAG ME TOO Confetti Cuts die from designer paper, and layered with a vellum LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die cut. I love the way these two scalloped pieces look together.

tagcard (5)

To top the layered tags, I cut the long flag ended piece from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set, and curled it in my fingers before adhering it over the layered piece with glue dots. This stops it from creasing when you bend it around your piece.

I love that the FOLDED TAG Confetti Cuts die gives you lots of space for a personal message, and I think it looks amazing layered on any of the other larger Reverse Confetti tags!

The weather is cooling down here in New Zealand, so it’s a good time for some summer escapism with the fab LET’S CHILL stamp set and LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts. I’ll show you how I make an icy popsicle…and let you in on the silly name we have for these summer treats downunder! I’m also making a fun messy background that features the Color Me Happy Stamp Set.
