Hi there, Amy S. with this week’s Wednesday in the Works project and video.
In today’s video, I am sharing how to make a cute Tic Tac (or other treat)
wrap using the Round Top Tag Confetti Cuts die set.
To make the wrap, I started with a piece of Stone cardstock measuring 9
3/4″ x 2″. I scored at 1 1/2″, 4 1/2″ 5 1/4″ and 8 1/4″. Next, I die-cut
the handles on both ends, first rounding the ends by partially cutting just
the top half of the Round Top Tag Confetti Cuts die, and then die-cutting the handle using the semi-circle die that’s also in that set.
Thanks for joining me today!

Hi ‘Fetti Fans, it’s Amy S. here with a *Wednesday in the Works* project
and video for you.
I’m loving the new Hello & Thanks Label Confetti Cuts die set that
Reverse Confetti just released last week! While experimenting with this die
for my release projects, I tried cutting multiple labels out of a single
card panel, then inlaying the label pieces in various bold colors of card
This is what I ended up with. I used a different color card stock for each
label inlay to get that nice color-blocked effect.
The three hello’s were done with the hello die in the Hello & Thanks
I added some hearts, sequins, and tiny wood veneer hearts as
embellishments. The large heart comes from the XOXO Hearts Confetti Cuts set,
and the small heart is from the Circle Wishes Confetti Cuts set.
*Confetti Cuts Dies*: Hello & Thanks Label, XOXO Hearts, Circle Wishes
*Paper*: Cloud White, Buttercup, Flamingo, RC Aqua, and Stone

*Other*: sequins, wood veneer hearts, white linen thread
The background reminded me of honeycomb, so for today’s video, I went
all-out with the honeycomb colors and a whole yellow and black bee theme:
This time I used black for the frame and two shades of yellow, the new
Buttercup and Bumblebee Yellow cardstock colors, for the label inlays.
The bees and stamped sentiment are from The Buzz. Check out the video for

Hi there, it’s Amy S. here today with a new Wednesday in the Works project
and video. Today’s idea is one I’ve been saving for a while just for
Easter. I’ve put together a stained glass inlaid cross design using the Linked
Circles Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die.
To begin, I created two panels for the “glass” parts. One is a background
panel loosely based on sky and grass colors. I did this panel with Distress
Oxide inks. First time playing with those, and I have to say I love them!
The second panel is a shimmery gold panel that will be die-cut and inlaid
to build the cross. For the “lead” parts, I die-cut the Linked Circles
Cover Panel from Lead card stock and then added some metallic sheen.
Only the cross pieces are inlaid. The other openings are just showing through to
the background. (Much easier to assemble the cover panel and cross pieces
onto the Distress Oxide background than to inlay both the cross and
background onto a separate panel, if that makes sense!)
On the inside, I stamped a simple Easter Blessings sentiment in Midnight
Thanks so much for joining me, and Easter Blessings to those who celebrate
Hi ‘Fetti Fans, Amy Sheffer here with today’s Wednesday in the Works
feature. In today’s video, you’ll see a quick review of all the products
that Reverse Confetti has released to go with the Topped Off Tag. I was
surprised by how many different toppers and layers there are now!
I’m also sharing a set of four birthday tags I put together with the Topped
Off Tag, Dots Tag Layer, Pop-Up Circle, Triple Chevies and Circle Wishes
Confetti Cuts. Stay tuned for a trick on how to save time and create
variety when making multiples!

Hi ‘Fetti fans, it’s Amy Sheffer here today with a new Wednesday in the Works installment. I got some questions last month about the nail polish marbling technique that I used for my #beastmode blog hop card, so I thought I’d make a quick video to show you how to do it.
I turned one of those beautiful marbled panels from the video into today’s card.
I used the marbled panel as my background, then combined a stamped and die-cut sentiment using You’re So stamps and a word die from the You’re So Confetti Cuts die set.
I adhered the torn vellum with some liquid adhesive behind the word die-cut and behind the sentiments.
For extra good measure, I wrapped some metallic embroidery floss around the vellum panel too, which helped hold it in place.
Thanks for joining me today! Hope you’re inspired to do some nail polish marbling too. Warning: it’s addictive!
