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.

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.

Art With Heart Team Showcase: 8 ways with the Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Stamp set / Rose Garden Thinlets.

Hello crafty friends.

Myself and many of the clever ladies in my Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team have been playing with the Rose Wonder stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlit Dies from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue.

8 ways to use the Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlets from the Occasions 2016 Catalogue. Cards by the Art With Heart Team, Australia

 

These two products coordinate perfectly and if you buy them together as a bundle you save 15% (Tip: when you order a bundle make sure you use the bundle code and not just the two individual codes). Here's a look at the products:

Rose Garden Thinlits

 

Now here's a look at some of the way we have used this bundle. This one is by me, I chose to just use the Framelits here. My DSP is from the Love Blooms DSP stack, and my color are Crumb Cake and Rose Red. My greeting is from Party with Cake, which is one of my favourites birthday greeting sets at the moment (LOVE the typewriter font).

My colour scheme is Rose Red and Crumb Cake, with the patterned paper from the Love Blossoms DSP stack. My greeting is from Party with Cake stamp set because I am totally in love with the typewriter font and all the birthday sentiments in this set.

This next card is by Kathryn Mangledorf in South Australia, Kathryn has used the inside cut outs from the Framelits. Learn how on Kathryn's blog post about this card here. Kathryn does regular classes in the Adelaide Hills.

These next two are by Rachel Woollard, who does regular classes and catalogue launches in Ringwood East Victoria. I particularly love how Rachel has layered the stamped and die cut leaves on this first card.

Patterned DSP make a fabulous backing for the die cut rose too.

These two cards were  created by Genna Gifford in Pakenham, for her recent catalogue launch. Isn't this amazing? Genna does classes and catalogue launches.

This bundle also is a great one for making sympathy cards. Here's another card by Genna.

Ros Davidson is another team member who does classes in Skye, south east Melbourne. Ros loved Genna's first card, and wanted to case it.

Finally, here's another card by me. In this card I only wanted to use the single branch from the Framelits.

Stampin' Up! Serene Silhouettes with a watercolour wash background

Today's card is for a friend who needs a cuddle by mail this week. Thinking of you handmade cards do that just perfectly I think, don't you?

Serene Silhouettes stampin up

How I created this card:

  • The shadow effect with the tree was a happy accident! I stamped the image first in Stazon (that I clearly needed to re-ink!) and when it didn't turn out as solid as I liked, I embossed another one a little off centre using black embossing powder.
  • The watercolour background was done before I stamped and embossed (make sure it's completely dry). I used Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry and the Aquapen with the ink from inside the stamp pad lid for the wash (make it nice and watery for this effect). 
  • The base card is Crushed Curry and the next layer Primrose Petals embossed with the Elegant Stripes embossing folder (which sadly I only realised hasn't carried over until after I finished my card - sorry!)
  • My greeting is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments (if you only get one sentiment set - this is the one and all the greetings fit perfectly in the Word Window Punch.

Here's a look at the Stampin' Up! products I have used (click each item number link and it will take you to that item in my online Stampin' Up! store. Saleabration is on, so spend just $90 and you get to choose a free exclusive stamp set, punch, DSP pack, card or embellishment pack or more (you get promoted to choose when you place your order).

Stampin' Up! Simply Sketched

Hello friends,

Today I have a beautiful new stamp set from the 2013 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue called Simply Sketched. 

Simply Sketched Stampin Up

I have used one of the new 2013 In Colours, Baked Brown Sugar as the base of my card. I have stamped onto it using Early Espresso using one of the three gorgeous sentiments that match the 3 images in this set. The DSP on the right is from Quatrefancy Specialty, which is another new DSP and this colour is Coastal Cabana, another of the new 2013 In Colours. I have also used Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar to colour the image (using a Blender Pen). I have also used the Ovals Framelits and the Occasions Paper Piercing Pack.

I think this Simply Sketched stamp set set is going to be VERY popular! As it is a hostess set, you might be interested in knowing how you can get the hostess sets without hosting a party? The answer is my Stampin' Up!  Hostess Clubs.  The next one starts July ready for the release of the new catalogue.

I have a couple more new cards to post showcasing the brand new colours, so I'll be back soon. In the meantime, here's a quick run down of the current specials and offers:
