Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree with Brusho Micropowders

Today I decided to show you another card with Brusho, this time a sympathy or get well card using Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree. I have used the Gamboge pot of Brusho for this card.

Brusho 1

I really love the effect I got with the Brusho as a bright sky or sunset. I am not sure how that small circular gap happened but I quite like that it did, as it kind of looks like a sun or moon. I did the Brusho piece first (again just sprinkling Brusho onto the watercolor paper which I had sprayed a few times with a water mister). When that was dry, I over stamped the Brusho with the the image from Lovely as Tree stamp set using Early Espresso ink. My greeting is from Flourishing Phrases stamp set. I have used  the 1 3/4" circle punch for the greeting and then cut a 2" circle from Copper Foil Cardstock to mat it (I used the Circle Layering Framelits for this step). I carried the Copper Foil Cardstock mat to the stamped image too, and the base card is just Early Espresso.

Brisho 1a

Here's a bit more about how to use Brusho. You can purchase it in my online store using the links at the end of the post.

 

Have fun playing with Brusho.

Stampin' Up! Graceful Garden with some vintage inspired texture.

Hello lovely friends. 

This week I was lucky enough to attend the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, which is a really fabulous floral, backyard and landscape gardening show in Melbourne. Seeing all the beautiful floral displays motivated me to come home and finish this card I had started at a friends last Monday.

Rose 2

This stamp set is called Gracious Garden and it's from the 2017 Annual Catalogue. I hadn't played with it before, but now I really love it! I coloured it with the Stampin' Blends (light and dark Pink Pirouette, light and dark Old Olive and light Rich Razzleberry). I then fussy cut the image and adhered both the stamped image and stamped rectangle using Dimensionals.

Rose 1

I have used the debossed side of the Garden Trellis embossing folder (I really like how this pattern coordinates with the background pattern in the Gracious Garden stamp set. My greeting is from Cake Soiree stamp set and I have stamped in Early Espresso and cut the greeting out with a 1" Circle Punch. A bit of lace tied around the stem and a White Lace Doily finishes off my card.

I met Rachel at a craft show in my very first year as a demonstrator. She soon became a regular customer, and soon after a demonstrator on my team. Rachel would have been with me 10 years in June this year. We love having Rachel in the team and she has become a good friend. We often get together and stamp and her little one (now her big one) used to sleep on my couch while we stamped! Rachel has built a great little team of her own and is now one of my Silver Elite Demonstrators. As well as being a great leader, she is very creative and runs regular Stampin' Up! classes in Ringwood East. Here's what she has coming up over the following months:
