Brusho Meets Thank You Thinlits, Team Swaps

This was our final project on Saturday. I used Yellow and Moss Green Brusho Crystals onto Watercolor Paper, and then spritzed the paper with Spray Starch. You can see how I did this on this blog post HERE!

I stamped the leaves from Blended Seasons Stamp set (limited time offer, see below for details) in Mango Melody onto a Mango Melody card base.

Once the Brusho is dry, you will cut the Watercolor Paper down to 3″ x 5″, then die cut with the Thank You Thinlits dies. Now you want to be careful to keep all of the pieces, so I used a piece of Press & Seal, sticky side to the back of the die and carefully poked out all of the pieces. Mount the negative part to a piece of Black cardstock cut just a bit smaller than 3 x 5 with a strong adhesive. I used Fast Fuse. Now you will add strips of Dimensionals to the Thank You. I cut off strips of the sides of my Dimensional sheets, attach. Then all those little pieces need to be adhered to the black cardstock. I used Tombow Liquid Adhesive and a pair of tweezers. Its a pain, but worth the trouble.  Next attach that piece with Dimensionals.

To finish off my card, I die cut some Mossy Meadow leaves from the Stitched Seasons Framelits (see below for details on this bundle) and a double Linen Thread Bow. They were all attached with Glue Dots. All most forgot the Basic Adhesive-backed Sequins.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4″ x 11″ Mango Melody cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″

3″ x 5″ Watercolor Color Paper (finished size)

I just realized I didn’t share Carol’s & Sheila’s swap cards for our meeting. Carol made the card on the left using Dandelion Wishes stamp set and Crumb Cake Cardstock. Sheila made the swap on the right using Accented Blooms in Blueberry Bushel onto Blueberry Bushel Cardstock.

We had a fun day!

Blended Seasons Wreath

I didn’t know that when you are stamping on colored cardstock, you use your white pencil to color in first, then add color. My Stamp Club gals will be making this next week. Thank you to my friend Gloria Plunkett for this tip/trick.

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock cut, 4″ x 4 1/4″. Using the 2 1/4″ punch, trace the circle in pencil, then stamp the leaf image in Memento Black Ink. Don’t worry if your wreath isn’t round. Mine isn’t. Once you add the sentiment and the die cut leaves you won’t even notice. Mine looks like a square in the photo below.

Color in your leaves with a White Watercolor Pencil.  It doesn’t have to be all filled in. Then add the Granny Apple Green over the White. I then added a small amount of the Garden Green. Then take your Aqua Painter and smooth out all your coloring lines. I’m sorry the next photo is a bit blurry.

Then I layered, Granny Apple Green & Garden Green leaves and a Lovely Lipstick Flower in the middle using this die that comes in the set. I added my double Linen Thread Bow with a Glue Dot and then layered the leaves on top of that with one Dimensional. I winked the flower and leaves with Wink of Stella, and added a Glitter Enamel Dot in the center of the flower.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ Lovely Lipstick cardstock, scored at 4 1/4″

4″ x 4 1/4″ Crumb Cake cardstock

7/8″ x 3 1/2″ Lovely Lipstick for the sentiment.

Scraps of Granny Apple Green, Garden Green & Lovely Lipstick scraps for the leaves and flower

Now onto some pretty cards.

Have you seen the Graceful Glass 6″ x 6″ Designer Vellum on page 188 of the Annual Catalog? If you like to color, you are going to love this Designer Vellum. On all of my cards I used the Stampin’ Blends. All of the Vellum panels are backed with Whisper White Cardstock, cut just a tiny bit smaller than the vellum. Once you have them colored, you can just go wild! LOL

For my first card I used a Grapefruit Grove base cut, 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″. In fact all the cards are cut this way. I stamped the butterfly in Grapefruit Grove along the right edge. The sentiment is stamped with Memento Black Ink. I used the Banner Triple Punch to do the ends. I added a few sprigs from the Blended Seasons Framelits in Vellum, Coastal Cabana, & Calypso Coral. I adhered them to the sentiment and added a few Dimensionals and then “winked” them with Wink of Stella. The final touch is the Calypso Coral Ombre Ribbon.

For this card I used Daffodil Delight for my card base. I stamped the butterflies on the right hand side and added two panels. I used the White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to finish off the card.

This card base is Fresh Fig embossed with the Striped Scallops Embossing Folder. I added a Pearlized Doily under the sentiment. Actually its just a small piece. I used the Trio Punch to add the little cut out flower on the sentiment. To finish off my card I used the new 3/8″ Mini Ruffled Ribbon. I am in LOVE with this ribbon. I think I’d like in more colors. What do you think? It ties so nicely.

For my final card I used a Grapefruit Grove base and the Ombre Ribbon again, but I put the focal point on the right. See those stitched lines on the right? They are from the Stitched Labels Framelits. I ran it through twice to get 2 stitching lines. I stamped the fun circle on the left side in Grapefruit Grove, and added a pearl from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.

The sentiment has a piece of one of the Colored Doilies. This one is Old Olive. You can find them on page 192 on the top left side of the page. They come in 4 colors.
