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!

Greetings, ‘Fetti Fans and TGI (almost)F!
Lots of you are getting your new Reverse Confetti goodies and we cannot wait to see what you create!
It’s Thursday, and it’s time for Confetti Camera!
A little bit about Confetti Camera…
In this weekly (Thursday) segment, one of the Confetti Crew designers will have the camera on both themselves, as a designer, and on their Reverse Confetti creations.
For this round each of our designers are CASE-ing a card created from one of the other Confetti Crew members. In stamping terms, CASE means to Copy And Stamp Exactly. The Crew is taking a previously made card and making it new. This is a fun way to see what you can do with your stamps and, I think, that it helps you grow as a creative person as it requires you to think outside the box a bit.
A couple of things to note:
1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such as Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.
2) Each designer will follow the same theme until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member (then it’s a new round with new questions/theme). To see previous Confetti Camera post, simply click on “Confetti Camera” under the categories link on our sidebar.
In the spotlight today is the sweet and talented, AMY SHEFFER…
Happy Thursday, ‘Fetti friends, I’m super excited about our Confetti Camera theme this month! I think there was a collective gasp over the internet the day that Heather Pulvirenti posted this card:
Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and happy Wednesday!
We have a great WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS here for you today! Amy Sheffer has created a fabulous tutorial using the new MAILBOX STARTER Confetti Cuts die set.
Are you asking “what exactly 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.
