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!



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!



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!


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.


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:
