Masculine Card

Hello Crafters and Happy Tuesday!
Today I've created a masculine card using the new release Pipe background stamp!


I stamped the image on light blue cardstock using the Brutus Monroe embossing ink and then I sprinkled Brutus Monroe Icicle Embossing powder all over the inked area and them heat set it. This gave the card a nice tone on tone look along with the texture. I inked the edges with a light blue ink for and added Wink of Stella to all of the pipes.

I used the Happy Birthday To You sentiment from the Birthday Badges stamp set from a previous release, and used the same light blue ink for the sentiment that I used to ink around the edges of the card. Then I die cut the sentiment out with a circle die.

I glued my pipe background down to my card base and then popped my sentiment up on foam tape for dimension.

And that is my card for today, thanks so much for stopping by!

You Are So Loved

Hello everyone! Today I have a love theme card, I know it's way too early for Valentine's Day Cards but I couldn't help myself! Black Friday had lots of great sales and this new stamp set, Valentine Penguins, from Gerda Steiner Designs just won me over, it is so stinking cute! Do you agree?! 


 


I kept it kind of simple. I ink blended the background with Worn Lipstick distress oxide ink at the top and Seedless Preserves distress oxide ink at the bottom. I spritzed the background with water and tapped it dry with a paper towel and then I spritzed some Perfect Pearls on the background. You can see the shine in the photo, I love that stuff!!

For the penguins I used Copic markers in C5, C7, and C9 for the black. W00 for their tummies, YR19, YR68, for their beaks and feet, and R22 for their cheeks. For the hearts I stamped them In Lawn Fawn Lobster Ink and then I used Wink of Stella on the hearts and the penguins for some shine. Then I stamped the sentiment You Are So loved in Raven Detail Ink from Brutus Monroe on the snowbank so I could then begin assembling the card.

I glued the background, the snowbank, and the hearts down with Brutus Monroe craft glue, and popped my penguins up on foam tape. I added glossy accents to the hearts, beaks, and feet of the penguins. I also added a black Glaze pen to the eyes of the penguin for shine and dimension. And that completes my card!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Kaleidoscope Stencil Background Shaker Card

Happy Tuesday everyone! Brutus Monroe has come out with two new stencils this release, and today I'm using the Kaleidoscope stencil with a few other Brutus Monroe products to make a shaker card for Christmas.



I started with a piece of 6 x 6 cardstock and the Kaleidoscope stencil, I taped them both down to my media mat. I used the Brutus Monroe Honeysuckle Surface Ink and a finger dauber to pounce the ink all over the stencil until the entire cardstock was covered.

After I was done I stamped one of the snowmen from the Snow Friends stamp set and colored him with Copics, cut him out, and then prepared my shaker card.

For my shaker card I used some pink beads from my stash and Brutus Monroe Bottle Cap sequins in Ballerina.

I assembled my card using Brutus Monroe craft glue and 3M foam tape and finished by cutting a banner for my sentiment. My sentiment, Merry Christmas, is from the Brutus Monroe Comfort and Joy Holiday Inspiration Box.

That's my card for today, I hope you enjoyed! And thanks so much for stopping by!

Love Is In the Air

Hello Everyone!
Today I've created a love themed card using the new Cloud Background stamp and the Hot Air Balloon Stamp Of The Month from Brutus Monroe! I thought they went so well together! 


I first inked up the new Cloud background stamp with Brutus Monroe embossing ink and sprinkled Brutus Monroe Alabaster embossing powder all over the inked area and then heat set it. I used Ranger distress inks for an ink resist technique in two shades of light blues. 

Next, I placed the Hot Air Balloon stamp with the hearts that come with the stamp set into my Misti tool and put my cardstock in place. I inked the balloon and the hearts with Brutus Monroe Rouge Surface Ink and stamped my card. I left the stamp in place in my Misti, by it being in the same place, I then inked the rope and the basket in Brutus Monroe Machiatto Surface Ink so they would be brown and stamped my card again, I now have two colors on my hot air balloon.

I then trimmed my cloud background down to 5.5 inches and placed it on a piece of red cardstock slightly larger and adhered those to a 6 x 6 top folding card base. I popped my hot air balloon up on foam adhesive and glued my hearts down with Brutus Monroe Craft glue.

To finish my card I added Acrylic Bubbles and glossy accents around my card!

I hope you enjoyed!

Teacher Appreciation Card | Tina's Classroom

Hello and Happy Tuesday! Today I have a Teacher's Appreciation Card I've created with the new release stamp set Tina's Classroom from Brutus Monroe.


Tina's Classroom stamp set is a charity stamp set which means 100% of the profits goes to a cancer foundation. 

Today's card came together pretty easy, I used fun papers from my stash, I especially love the pencil paper and had to use it.
I stamped the chalked board with Raven Detail ink from Brutus Monroe and colored it in with copic markers. I then stamped on the chalk board a sentiment from the stamp set and heat set it with Alabaster embossing powder. I die cut a small circle and stamped the apple with the little worm, which is also from the stamp set, colored it in with copics. I popped the apple and the chalked board up on foam dimensionals and I tied a piece of baker's twine around the chalk board to match.

And that's my card for today, thanks for stopping by,

Snow Friends | Brutus Monroe

Hello Everyone and Happy October!

Today I've created a clean and simple card using the new release stamp Snow Friends from Brutus Monroe! I just love a good snowman and this stamp set really fits the bill. There are four little plump snowmen in this stamp set and they are adorable!


I started my card by cutting three stitched rectangles, the largest I glued directly to the card base. The two smaller rectangles I stamped two of the snowmen from the stamp set with Raven detail ink. And then I did some simple simple copic coloring, I also used the Brutus Monroe Stylefile markers, they all blend together well. Once I finished coloring I popped the two pieces up on foam tape to add dimension. I added sequins and clear gems to accent my card.

To finish my card I used the beautiful sentiment that came with the stamp set.



Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure to visit the Brutus Monroe blog for more inspiration.

When I Grow Up: Astronaut

Happy Tuesday Everyone!
It's release week here at Brutus Monroe and all week we will be showcasing the new product releasing Saturday September 30th! Such an exciting release at that.
Today I'm showing one of the When I Grow Up series stamps called Astronaut. This series of stamps, dedicated to little girls, is an encouraging set to let them know they can be whatever they what to be when they grow up! This is such a cute stamp set with lots of encouraging sentiments and I paired it with another stamp set Brutus Monroe has called Lucky Stars.

For my background I did an ink resist technique. I stamped images from the Lucky Stars stamp set and heat embossed it with Alabaster embossing powder. Next I made a rainbow galaxy with distress oxide inks and spritzed the background with shimmer spray.
I cut the side panel with a scalloped die an popped it up on foam tape.
I colored the little astronaut with copic markers and popped her on foam tape and placed her on the card. She is so stinking cute! I added some star gems to the card and my card was finished.
I hope you enjoyed today's card and thanks for stopping by!
