Hello stampers. Once a month I do this fun class called Sweet Suite Saturday. I do it on a Saturday afternoon at 1pm, usually the last Saturday of the month. The whole idea is to have a super chill, relaxed class that revolves around a beautiful suite of products. Of course there is good food to share as well, hence “Sweet Suite Saturday”. This month it will be featuring Humming Along. If you purchase the bundle the class is free, otherwise it is $25 for four great cards. This blog post is about the last two cards using Humming Along and Brusho. Brusho is a fantastic product that will soon be retiring from our annual catalog. I can’t believe it! I have had so much fun playing and feeling artistic with these vibrant paint crystals. Take a look at what I have made and you might want to get your hands on some Brusho too!
For this card I wanted to use just the leaf stamp to make a background. I inked up the leaf in versamark and then sprinkled with call me clover embossing powder and then embossed with the heat tool. After the embossing was done I spritzed the shimmery white cardstock with water and then sprinkled on yellow Brusho. Then I sprinkled on just a little Prussian Blue Brusho on the outside edges and spritzed the whole thing with water again. Here is the close-up.
The sentiment is also from Humming Along, and I stamped it on whisper white cardstock and cut it out using the stitched shape framelits. The scallop circle is a punch. I added some of our call me clover leaf trim in behind the sentiment (it looks nicer in person).
I have had that flower and hummingbird sitting on my desk for a good long while. They were in the running for my Brusho class and never made it onto a card. I embossed the images in black on watercolour paper and then treated them with Brusho ink crystals. They look great on the background of the Floral Romance specialty designer series paper. This is another great #loveitchopit card. I chopped the leaves paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″ so you get 6 out of one 12″ by 12″ sheet of paper. The wood look paper is a 4″ by 1″ strip. Se keep those scraps and turn them into cards! The sentiment is from Well Said in the Occasions catalog and they are both in blueberry bushel. Here is a closeup:
I just love how the Brusho makes me feel like a “real” artist. So much fun using these paint crystals on either watercolour paper or shimmery white cardstock. With the coordinating framelits it is so very easy to make stunning cards. I made this card into a Mother’s Day card because my mom loves hummingbirds but you could easily turn it into a birthday card or an anniversary or get well card. All these sentiments are available in the Well Said bundle. If you are intrigued by the Brusho, be sure to get them before they are gone. They will not be in the new annual catalog!!
