You are my Sunshine!

Isn’t this a fun saying? I promise this will be my last “Brusho” card for a while. This too was a “reject” from my Monday card. I used two stamp sets, Stitched All Around Bundle & Painted Glass Stamp Set. I used Gamboge (orange) & Yellow Brusho Crystals onto Watercolor Paper. I also used Spray Starch instead of water to active the Crystals.

Once my Watercolor Paper was dry, I stamped the large circles in Poppy Parade from the Painted Glass Stamp Set. Then I took the Stitched Labels Framelits and embossed with that large die. You can see all the other dies I used in this photo as well.

I stamped the sentiment and die cut, (large circle with the stitches), then started layering all my pieces.

I started with the Burlap Ribbon, both circles adhered together and then put on with Dimensionals. The long label was die cut from Gold Foil Paper, then the Poppy Parade label, and the little heart I used a Mini Dimensional.  I still had the smaller Mango Melody circle, so I added it with Dimensionals too.

My card base is Mango Melody. It goes so well with Poppy Parade.

Blended Seasons & Brusho Crystals

Are you tired of seeing Blended Seasons Bundles and Brusho yet? I actually made this for yesterdays project and decided that I needed to use only the Prussian Blue color.

I started out with a piece of Watercolor Paper and added Moss Green and Prussian Blue in a diagonal across the paper. I used Spray Starch instead of water to active the crystals, then laid down a piece of Plastic Wrap and scrunched it up. It makes for such an interesting pattern. I had a narrow piece of Watercolor Paper that I added the same colors, same process for the leaves. You will notice that I didn’t pick all of the pieces out of the leaves. If they fell out, it was fine, but decided that it gives the leaves a little more texture if you leave some of the piece in. What do you think? Do you like all the pieces out, or is some or all ok to stay?

Once the leaves were dry I coated them with a thin layer of Vaseline. Why? It adds a shine to them.  I got this tip from Jenny Hall. Then I went over them with Wink of Stella. You didn’t think I would forget to “wink” my leaves did you? I added the leaves with Tombow Liquid Glue. Remember, a little goes a LONG way. Less is more!

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment, which is in the Blended Seasons Stamp Set.  Since Watercolor Paper is so porous,  sometimes you need to stamp it a couple of times to get a nice dark stamped image. You can do that with the Stamparatus and know its in the right place.

I finished off my card with a triple Linen Thread bow and attached it with a Glue Dot, and a few Glitter Enamel Dots.

I almost forgot about the inside…….I die cut the medium Label in Whisper White and added the extra leaf I had.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4″ x 11″ Tranquil Tide Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″

4″ x 5 1/4″ Lemon Lime Twist cardstock

3 3/4″ x 5″ Watercolor Paper (my paper was actually bigger and I cut it down after I used the Brusho)

3″ x 4″ Whisper White cardstock

Scraps of the Watercolor Paper for the leaves

Enjoy Life with the Brusho Crystals

This is a project we will be doing in Stamp Club this week. I used just the Prussian Blue Crystals and spray Starch instead of water. I’ve got several posts on how I did this. You need to make sure your Shimmery White Paper is dry before you start stamping. The Stamparatus is a GREAT tool for stamping on paper that was wet and not completely flat. I put the paper in portrait. Stamped the grass using the hinge technique with Black Memento Ink. Stamp once section, then bring the clear plate down one notch and stamp again.

Once I got the grass stamped, stamp the little flowers on the right side of your paper. Then the bicycle and then the sentiment all using the Stamparatus. The butterflies were stamped as an afterthought, but like them in both cards.

For this one the paper is almost all filled in with the Brusho Crystals. The pattern is from using the Plastic Wrap crinkled up and has a double Linen Thread bow.

You can really see the texture on this photo. The Shimmery White Paper really shines too.

For this one I used less Brusho, changed the sentiment and added a single Linen Thread bow.

I like them both, so you choose, which one do you like better? Tell me, really! I love hearing from you.

4 1/4″ x 11″ Pacific Point cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″
