Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day February 25th!

Hey there! Today is Sunday, so it's time to share some swaps!

First, Carol Slack used the Occasions Catalog set, Flying Home for her card. She colored it beautifully with Stampin' Blends Markers and used the Bridge Fold. Perfect!

On the back side she used a sentiment from Special Celebrations, so sweet!

Next, Rhonda Bassler used Frienship's Sweetest Thoughts, another Occasions Catalog set, with the Brushstrokes Background for her adorable slider card.

The sentiment is also from Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts!

Finally, Cathy Miller combined Picture Perfect Birthday, Picture Perfect Party 6" x 6" Designer Paper, and Peekaboo Peach 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding for her cute creation! She hand-cut the party blowers with Paper Snips and embossed the Bermuda Bay background with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. She used a Stitched Shapes Framelit and a Layering Oval Framelit to showcase the greeting.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brusho!

Hey there! Today I'm going to share with you a card that in the past I might have thrown in the trash because it didn't turn out as planned,  but I think you'll see why I decided to share it anyway.

I wanted to try the Brusho "spritz" technique of sprinkling the crystals on the paper and then spritzing with water, which is a completely different look than when you paint with Brusho.

I stamped the butterfly on Shimmery White paper with Tangerine Tango ink and the Picture Perfect Birthday greeting with Memento Tuxedo Black. I sprinkled both Yellow and Gamboge Brusho Crystal Colour on the paper and then spritzed with water.

The Brusho exploded into these brilliant colors, which was expected. What I didn't expect was how it overpowered the stamped image!

And it also made the greeting smear a little, but you know, overall I like the look!

Inside is a prim and proper contrast without Brusho.

Can you see why I couldn't throw this creation away? I'm kind of lovin' it!

Stampin' Up! Brusho Bloom and Black!

Hey there! Today's card is a happy accident! Brusho crystals bled over the embossed edges, so I cut away the rest of the square. The the vibrantly painted bloom is a striking contrast with the black!

Yellow Brusho for the center, Brilliant Red for the Bloom, and Moss Green, Yellow, and Prussian Blue for the leaf. I sprinkled Moss Green on a clear block, swirled with a little AquaPainter water, then sprinkled & swirled yellow separately.  I added a bit of yellow to the green, then I added a tiny bit of water swirled Prussian Blue. The color combos are endless!

The rest of the card is the same as my earlier version, with the exception I added a layer of Smokey Slate under the stamped white layer.

Stampin' Up! Brusho Bloom!

Hey there! Finally Typepad is up  so I can share this pretty card created with Beautiful Day and Brusho Colour Crystals!

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps1

Today's bloom was white heat-embossed on Shimmery White, then I used the "sprinkle and paint" method with Yellow Brusho in the center and Gamboge Brusho for the petals.

 To "sprinkle an paint" I sprinkled a bit of the crystals I wanted (gamboge) directly on the bloom, then used an Aqua Painter to activate the color and paint. Where the crystals are concentrated is where the color will be the most intense.

For the background I first stamped Crumb Cake with images from the SAB set, Amazing You, with Soft Suede, then embossed with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic folder that I had inked with my Crumb Cake ink pad.

The greeting is Gold Foil cut with a Celebrate You Thinlet die, another SAB freebie.

Inside I used the same inking technique on the Pinewood Planks folder after stamping my sentiment and image.
