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!!

Eastern Beauty Brusho
  1. On Shimmery White cardstock, stamp sentiment with Night of Navy ink, die cut with Stitched Shape Framelits. Adhere to scalloped circle die cut with Layering Circle Framelits. Adhere sentiment layers to Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper medallion die cut with Eastern Medallions Thinlits.
  2. Sprinkle Brusho Crystal Colour onto Watercolor Paper, spritz with water or wink of stella shimmer spritz (see TIP above). Set aside to dry.
  3. Use Tailored Tag punch to create several “tiles” from colored watercolor paper. Arrange on Shimmery White panel, adhere with SNAIL and trim any that is hanging over edge.
  4. Attach Metallic-Edge ribbon with glue dots, trim ends. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhere sentiment medallion to card front.
  5. Address an envelope, write a message inside and drop in the mailbox to brighten someone’s day.

Where do you find your inspiration?

Lately, I’ve been turning to the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog…it may be small but it is MIGHTY!

  • nifty ways to use products in ways I may not have thought of

Stampin’ Up! has done the work for you…feel free to CaSE it!

Copy and Selectively Edit or Copy and Share Everything

For ShowCASE Sunday, page 51 in 2017 Holiday Catalog from Stampin' Up! For details click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #smittenmittens #handstamped

One of the reasons this image was chosen is because of the versatility but also because I love the layer of vellum and it’s ability to tone down the images in the background designer series paper.

It is amazing what a layer of translucent vellum can do for a card, it adds a touch of softness while simultaneously allowing the focal point to take center stage.

Bravo Vellum Cardstock! Bravo!

I would encourage you to try this on your next card and see what a difference it makes.
