Countdown to Confetti - Pattern Blocks & My Tribe

Welcome to day two of the Countdown to Confetti May Release!   Today we are sharing two new stamp sets called Pattern Blocks and My Tribe.

First up for me today, I used the Pattern Block stamp set to create a set of four cards using the rock and roll technique along with some Distress Inks and water.

These are pretty basic cards, using the striped pattern from the set, I stamped it first with the main color and then we along the edges with another Distress Ink color.   Then I spritzed with water and stamped onto some watercolor card stock.

The sentiments stamped so clearly on the watercolor cardstock, I just love the fine line of the font!

Once dry, I stamped a sentiment from the Pattern Blocks stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink.    I then added various wooden accents to each card panel.    The panels were trimmed down.   I popped up each panel with foam tape onto some matching Reverse Confetti card stock:  Avocado, Rose, Navy and Rust.   

Next up, I used the new My Tribe stamp set along with the Diamond Stripe Square Confetti Cut.   I paired this with Build a Bunch stamp set that was previously released.    The new Diamond Stripe Square Confetti cut will create a panel of 4 1/4 square.   

I die cut it from Midnight, Iced Aqua and White card stock and then inlaid some of the white and Iced Aqua card stock into the pattern.   I stamped the main white panel with a sentiment from My Tribe in Midnight ink and then popped this panel up on the card base.    I love that you can create your own pattern in the inlays, you could mix this up several different ways to get such a variety of looks with this Confetti Cut. 

I added some flowers and leaves from the Build a Bunch stamp set that was white heat embossed on various colors of Reverse Confetti cardstock:  Lime, Rose, Sunshine, Flamingo and Iced Aqua.   The flowers and leaves were popped up with foam tape.    You can use your scraps pieces of cardstock and this moves so quick when you work in an assembly type process.   

I love the sentiments in this stamp set, they are such great sentiments that you can use both on the front of a card and on the inside of your cards.
