February 'Fetti Fans Workshop Cards
Well, guess what I'm getting ready for? I'm going to the SCRAPBOOK EXPO tomorrow and Saturday at the Gaylord in Grapevine, TX. For some, that's a far drive, but for me, it's just right up the road. In fact, Audrie was born in Grapevine and often calls it "her town" and that's "her hospital" when we are driving that way. It will be my first time to go!
The Little Blue House team, and hosting the Reverse Confetti Make-n-Take at our booth, so come by and see us (Jen's coming in on Saturday to join me)! Here's just a little peek at what you can make!
Before I designed my Make-n-Take (it's for tomorrow, Saturday's will be Jen's design), I was busy busy making class samples and teaching my 'Fetti Fans Workshop up at the store. Today, I thought I'd share a couple of the cards we completed in the class using my REVERSE CONFETTI supplies.
Since this class fell on an "off month" for a new release and no big holiday to wrap the theme around, I chose to do some casual, every day type of cards. I think this first one was my favorite from the class. I used the TRIPLE CHEVIES Confetti Cuts die to layer underneath my main panel on my card as a good start. Then the dotted burlap (from LBH) was cut using the DOCUMENTED Confetti Cuts for the large rounded rectangle shape and I just cut the green mat to fit and rounded the corners by hand. Several PETALS 'N POSIES stamps and CONFETTI CUTS were used for the flower cluster, along with the WHOLE LOTTA DOTS for the light blue flag banner. The sentiment was stamped from the IN A BIG WAY set on to the sweet scalloped circle from the CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die.
One of the other cards we did (we usually tackle 4 per class), is this girly birthday card using the BE A BARISTA stamp set. I really wanted to use this set, as I hadn't played with it in a while. This was our "easy" card of the class! I stamped the sentiment onto the circle from CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS and layered it onto a trio of fun created with the LOVE NOTE, CLASS ACT and DIAGONAL STRIPE PRETTY PANEL Confetti Cuts dies.
Ok, I've got to go get busy die-cutting and stamping all the pieces for the Make-n-take tomorrow! When is someone going to buy me a Vagabond!?!? If you're going to the EXPO, please stop by The Little Blue House booth, say HI, and pick up some of your favorite REVERSE CONFETTI and LBH kits!
SUSIE Q-TIP: I did have to run the burlap piece back and forth a few times with the die through my Big Shot, as it had a paper backing which made it a bit thicker. It still cut it without much effort. There were a few spots where I had to "help it" with scissors, but the main shape was cut fine. Would I try this with a snowflake or very intricate die? Maybe not. Always test to make sure that your cutting "medium" (other than paper) will work before you get your heart set on making something with an exact look in mind.
