Countdown to Confetti: Because of the Brave

Welcome, 'Fetti Fans to Day 3 of the June Release for Reverse Confetti

This month is a fantastic release, 
with four new stamps sets & seven new Confetti Cuts!

Today, we're showcasing a wonderful new patriotic set called
Because of the Brave

Now, being Canadian, I don't have a lot of call for USA patriotic cards,
but I really love how this set features sentiments that can be sent to
people serving their country overseas to encourage them!

To make my card, I diecut the new Sunburst Cover Panel Confetti Cuts from
one piece of white cardstock and impressed it onto another.
On the impressed piece, I did a little masking with post it notes
and applied some Altenew Crimson and Sapphire inks using my blending tool.

I stamped the sentiment (from Because of the Brave) in Sapphire
and them impressed two of the stars from Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts,
to add a little extra detail.

For my next card I decided to make a Father's Day Card using the latest

I was inspired by the colours to create a Father's Day card.

I started by smooshing some tropical teal ink onto my white cardstock panel
and adding in some ink with a paint brush.
Then, I added a little more ink and spritzed my card.
I diecut three of the new Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts from white cardstock
and stamped the sentiment from Because of the Brave onto the largest star.

Because it didn't quite tit, I also stamped it onto my background.
I stamped the sentiment from Tie-rific in versamark on a strip of navy cardstock
and heat embossed it in white.
I added a strip of Pink Paislee patterned paper along the said of my card
and finished it off with some wooden stars.

Remember, there's still time to play along with the

Commenting in reverse order this morning (don't want to miss yet another release!). Your cards, as always, are outstanding! Crushing over the bold red/blue showcase of the Sunburst Cover panel; smitten with the blue/black/white of your second. The stars and diagonal stripes: masculine marvelous! Duo of WOW, my friend!

Love your cards. Wish I knew how to do the center stars. I don't know how to use the die cuts without cutting? Maybe you could tell us how it's done?

Love how you sponged the different colors behind the sunburst panel on your first card. The second card was a great masculine layout without using browns, storing that idea away for later!
