I have a couple of projects to share with you today and then I am going to send you on your way to see all the Confetti Creativity that the Crew has for you!

First up is a project using the new BITTY BANNERS stamps and Confetti Cuts.  I paired it with the (previously released) YOU ARE A STAR Confetti Cuts and SO STRIPEY stamps for a fun, cute and easy lil’ treat…

I hot glued the stars onto paper straws that I cut down and added them into mini corrugated cups filled with coordinating Sixlets candies.  This would be such a great addition to a place setting for a birthday, graduation, wedding, etc.

As a finishing touch, I added the gold sequins.

These can easily be personalized with just a switch of colors…so many possibilities!

With the end of the school year just around the corner, I find myself wanting to create for my kiddos’ teachers.  I absolutely love the new ALL APPLES stamps and Confetti Cuts dies and I know that I will be reaching for them a lot for upcoming Teacher Appreciation and end of the year projects.

I used the new INSTA-FRAME Confetti Cuts die directly on my card front and added the black cardstock panel that I stamped the dashed lines on (from the RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW stamp set).

I love this sentiment!

TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Tuesday!

Today is the LAST DAY of our 3 day Valentine’s Sale…

SaleGraphic

. . . . .

We know you love fast shipping (so do we!) and we are working hard to get all your orders out the door just as quickly as we can.

 I am glad that I was able to get some creative time in the studio over the past couple of weeks, as I don’t see any happening this week (but it’s still early in the week, so I can still hope for it).  I have March release goodies to play with and they are calling my name!!  Ok, that was a little bit of a tease…sorry! *wink*

 . . . . .

I’ve been playing around with different ink and mediums.  I had my color mists (mainly Heidi Swapp Color Shine, but there are a few others in there, too) and I got playing around and created this fun flowers…

GrowWithLove215_2

Each of the flowers was created my cutting a coffee filter (folder over a few times) with the flowers from the LOVE BLOOMS Confetti Cuts die set.  I then, sprayed them with the color mists and allowed them to dry.  From there, I layered them and pushed a brad through the center and wrinkled/poofed up the layers to create flowers.  In the end, the centers were adorned with sequins and rhinestones and added to this card…

 GrowWithLove215

The main image panel is cut from the rounded rectangle die in the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts die set and then stamped with the horizontal stripes from the SO STRIPEY stamp set and a sentiment from the LOVE BLOOMS stamp set.  I layered the flowers with green linen thread and a gold and black flag ended panel cut from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.  Before added the main image panel to the card base, I flicked (instead of sprayed) gold color mist onto the base of the card.

One more shot…

GrowWithLove215_1

I can’t wait to make more of these.  So easy and fun and they really give this otherwise simple card quite the wow factor!
