DSC#277: Eastern Beauty Brusho

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “Home Sweet Home” Challenge.

This week I was inspired by

  • shape of the tiles
  • muted colors reminiscent of sea glass
  • and a card that I saw when I got a sneak peek at the new 2018-19 Annual Catalog (one of my favorite perks of being a part of the Stampin’ Up! family).

I had an idea in my head…

and that is exactly where it stayed.

This isn’t unusual for me because I often get busy creating and soon my original idea has morphed into something very different and often time much better!

Ready to see it?

Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty combined with Brusho Crystal Color. For details click through to my blog. #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #easternbeauty #brusho

I love vibrant blue color and the subtle shimmer combination of this card.

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

Stamp Set: Eastern Beauty

Paper:

  • Thick Whisper White : 4-1/4″ x 11″ card base
  • Shimmery White: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, 2-1/2″ square for sentiment
  • Watercolor Paper
  • Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper: approx. 3″ square
  • Night of Navy: 3″ square

Ink: Night of Navy (sentiment)

Accessories: Brusho Crystal Colour-Prussion Blue, Big Shot, Eastern Medallions Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framlits, Layering Circle Framelits, Tailored Tag Punch, Metallic-Edge Ribbon, SNAIL adhesive, Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals

It’s All in the Details: I love lots of glimmer and shimmer…on everything.

TIP: to add shimmer to EVERYTHING, I took a small spray bottle, filled it with rubbing alcohol and a disassembled Wink of Stella Glitter Pen, give it a shake and spritz away!!
