Thanks for hopping over here from the CLASSroom today!  Everybody’s projects have been so fun!

My project today features these products from the release:

Bottles of Bubbly Die Set

ebe-201712-cue-the-confetti-fw50

Cue the Confetti Stamp Set

 

Poppin-Bottles-001A-je

This is a larger sized bottle die–I love the presence it has–makes for some really fun options!  Here I just die cut it from the fun Happy Hooray Paper pad that’s part of the Party Bundle.

Poppin-Bottles-001B-je

I hand-lettered the “Cheers” die and love using it to accent the the bottle!

Methinks this would make fun New Year’s Party invite, too!  I posted a few weeks ago with a project featuring this die set, check it out HERE.

Thanks for coming by!  As always, the hop starts in the CLASSroom–we’ll have another on Saturday as there are soooooo many ideas and projects to share!

For today’s hop I’ll be featuring the Banner Cake and the YAY! die sets on my projects!

YAY! Die

Cake-Wasted-001A-je

I love that this die cuts out a thick outline image–you can have a lotta fun with this!  Here I just made a simple watercolored background, die cut the cake from smooth bristol and then glued it over the same cut from Craft-a-Board to make my own chipboard type embellishment.  Some of the sentiments from Cue the Confetti are designed specifically to fit in the space between the banner and the top of the cake.

I love cake.

December_2017_release_je_00-4

For this one, I cut the window out of a panel, made a shaker from it and mounted it over the card front where I’d stamped “Cue the Confetti”; the die cut was then mounted a little askew–I love this particular visual effect!

 

Confetti-Balloon-001A-je

The confetti images and the balloon string on this one lead to the inside of the card where I made a pleat inside the gutter crease so I could pop up the YAY! on clear plastic strips–just a fun variation for doing a pop up card!

While it’s not a “kit”, the Party Bundle created for this release is super fun and made it easy for me to pull together lots of card designs!  Hope you’ll pop back by on Saturday–more samples are comin’! :)

ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN DECEMBER RELEASE HOP – DAY 1

ig-20171203-ebe-release-available

Hi, everybody!  Welcome to the December hop for the latest Essentials by Ellen Release!  All the fun starts in the CLASSroom and be sure to scroll down to the end of my post for a link to your next stop for today’s hop!

ebe-201712-cue-the-confetti-fw50 Cue the Confetti

ebe-201712-dies-confetti-flinger-fw50 Confetti Flinger Die Set

ebe-201712-dies-yay-fw50 Yay Die Set

I’m sharing a few projects with Cue the Confetti Stamp Set and the Confetti Flinger Die– I must admit, these are two of my most favorite products I’ve ever designed–they’re just so…. ME! Hah!

 

Confetti-Flinger-001A-je

For this card front, I die cut the YAY!” from different colors of card stock and also from glitter paper and then glued them in offset fashion.  The little sesame seed sequins are just sooooooo perfect for this card design–they literally look like they’re being tossed–such a great effect!

 

Confetti-Flinger-001B-je

Inside, I just had to use the flinger for the inside of this one–it’s just too stinkin’ FUN!  CONFETTI FLINGER ASSEMBLY VIDEO

I love using the glassine paper for the confetti holder–it’s translucent, so no color matching worries AND it’s very lightweight; perfect for releasing the confetti as the card opens.

By the way,  in case you didn’t see my earlier post, I’ve tried the confetti flinger with some DIY Rainbow TISSUE Paper confetti and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it *poofs* out of the card when it’s opened–FLUTTERY!!!  I couldn’t stop playing with it!

December_2017_release_je_00-8

Mixed Cue the Confetti in with the YAY! die set –the front is a clear cellophane envelope I had laying around–I slipped a piece of acetate into it so it would have some body and then slipped some confetti into it, sealed it, and then sandwiched it between two balloon die cuts (the one on the outside of the card was watercolored and die cut from watercolor paper.

December_2017_release_je_00-7

I had made a top-folding card and then whacked off the front so there was only about 1/2″ or so remaining past the score line–I sandwiched that flap between the two die cuts after I adhered the top of the cellophane envelope to it so the card had a nice finished look on the inside.  This is such a fun option for making shaker cards where the front is almost entirely clear.

 

Hope these ideas inspire!

Now, on to the next stop:

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy all the eye candy along the way!
