Countdown to Confetti: My Heart Trusts

Welcome, 'Fetti Fans to Day 2 of the June Release for Reverse Confetti

I

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

Today, we're showcasing a beautiful new faith-based set called My Heart Trusts
I just love the mix of fonts in this set, as well as the wonderful sentiments!

For my first card, I paired My Heart Trusts with a new die that's
being released this month called Sand Dollar Confetti Cuts.


I started by applying some PTI Fine Linen ink to my white cardstock panel
applying it a bit heavier behind where I would adhere my Sand Dollar Confetti Cuts.
I diecut the Sand Dollar Confetti Cuts from vintage cream cardstock
and blended a little bit of the fine linen ink around the edges.
I used the new Scalloped Cover Panel Confetti Cuts to impress
into a piece of Hawaiian Shores cardstock along the edge of my card. 


To stamp my My Heart Trusts sentiment, I inked the top part of it in
Hawaiian Shores and the bottom in Tropical Teal to give an ombre effect.

On my next card, I paired My Heart Trusts with the new
Scalloped Cover Panel Confetti Cuts.


This time I impressed the Scalloped Cover Panel Confetti Cuts onto a piece of
white cardstock and used inks pressed onto an acrylic block, water & a paint brush
to colour them ink (PTI aqua mist, Hawaiian shores, tropical teal and
Delicata Golden Glitz).
I flicked some of the Golden Glitz and Tropical Teal ink onto the background.
I diecut the Scalloped Cover Panel Confetti Cut from another piece of
white cardstock and layered it over top.
I stamped my sentiment in aqua mist and then sponged some tropical teal
ink onto my sentiment and stamped again, using my MISTI.


I wanted to get a picture so you could see the shimmer from the gold.
It's super pretty in real life!
