Valentine Cards with Brutus Monore

 

For my card today, I started by placing some media paste on two different piles on my glass mat and I mixed in Cherry Aqua Pigment into one pile and Fuschia into another pile and mixed them until I got the colors I wanted.  Next, I took a piece of paper and smooshed it into the two different colored paste until I was happy.  (I didn't leave any behind. I made several backgrounds with as much paste as there was left on my mat until it was all gone.) Then I left the backgrounds to dry overnight and cleaned up the left over residue from my mat, palette knife.

I ran my dried background with a stitched rectangle die from my stash.  Next I ran some red scrap paper through my Big Shot twice with one of the border dies from Lace Borders Cutting Die Set.  I also cut one layer from Prom Night Glamour Gloss Cardstock and glued them all together to create a thick die for texture.  I also did the same thing to the Love die from With Love and White cardstock three times.  I attached both stacked die cuts to the front of my card panel.  I used liquid glue to attach my card panel to a pink A2 card base.  To finish off my card, I used a small heart die from my stash to cut more hearts from leftovers of my Prom Night Glamour Gloss and glued them around my die sentiment.

For this project I started with an aqua pigment smooshed background.  Then I used the Flower Burst Stencil and an ink blending tool to pounce the Alabaster Pigment ink all over the front of my panel.  I set it aside to dry and in the meantime I cut a heart makeshift stencil from acetate with a die from my stash.  Once the inked panel was dry, I used a palette knife to spread the Bubble Gum Chroma Glaze and Some Happy Heather Velveteen glaze over the center of my card panel (through my makeshift stencil).  I scooped a little of each glaze onto my Stencil pal and then spread them together to create a mix.  Before the glaze was completely dry I pressed my Glamour Gloss Prom Night Heart from the Heart Petals Die Cut into the center of the heart and put the whole thing aside to dry overnight.

Once my panel was completely dry, I put it in my spatter blox and splattered both white acrylic paint and Aubergine Surface spray over it for some more pattern.  I cut the panel down with a stitched rectangle die from my stash and attached it to an A2 white card panel.  I used some white cardstock and cut out three of the Love word die from With Love die set and stacked them together with liquid glue.  I attached the stacked die to the front of my card along with a few white small hearts.

Did you make any valentines this year?  What is your favorite die or stamp set to use for Valentines?

Growing in Unity Blog Hop--Birthday Card


Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I had the priveledge of being the Unity Girl of the Week for the last week of 2020.  I have one more post tied to this week as I participate in today's Growing In Unity Blog Hop.  I am the first stop along the hop and I have the list below so you can hop along an leave comments.


My card for the hop uses the Smak Kit that I chose for my participation for the week.  I had to get the November 2019 Smak kit for its winter beauty and this big snowflake.  This card is for my mama as her birthday is coming up next month and her favorite color is blue and she loves snowflakes and snowman.  I started by taking the snowflake stamp in my Original Misti and stamped it out with My Favorite Things Nightshift Blue Ink.  I then used a ranger foam dauber and used my finger to apply thermoweb transfer gel to the stamp and applied that right over the blue image.  I set the panel aside to dry for about 20 mins and let my laminator warm up.

Once the gel was dry, I used some Opal Deco Foil and ran my panel through a laminator, twice.  I peeled back the foil and it left just the right amount of shine to the stamped image.  It was not perfect, but that is what I wanted.  Next, I took a blending brush and inked the same Nightshift blue ink the rest of my panel making the edges extra dark.  

I placed my panel in my splat box and splattered on some shimmer spray and some waterdown blue ink.  I used a sentiment from Birthday Go Round with the same ink on some heat resistant vellum from Brutus Monroe and covered the ink with some Pearl Embossing Powder.  After I heat set the powder, I used a circle die to cut it out and attach it to my card panel.  

Before I attached my card panel to my white A2 card base, I used the same simmer spray and a paint brush to cover the edges of my card base.  I used liquid glue to attach my panel to my card and that finishes my card.   I  hope you like my card and Happy Birthday mom!


 Here is the order stop by and leave a comment on each blog and you have a chance to win one of TWO Unity filled prize packs.

2020 Growing In Unity Week Post #5

Happy New Year!  Welcome to 2021!  Best of wishes for everyone this year!

For my last post I had to create a Slim Line Card.  I stamped out a variety of Angie Girls with Copic friendly ink and colored them in with a very limited Christmas Color pallet.  Next, I looked through my dies and found a rectangle and rectangle frame set to cut out the images and framed each one with a evergreen die cut frame.  I like how this looked because they look like snapshots and one of the Angie girls is holding a camera, so I imagine this is a fun day with the girls and we are getting three glimpses into their party. (I used girls from Ember Girl, Planner Gal: Merry Doe, Planner Gal Kit: Tell Me A Story.)


Next, I looked through my pile of patterned paper, (we all have a stash we never use right or is it just me?) to find a red plaid paper and cut it down to just shy of 3.5" x 8.5" panel.  I used the camera stamp from Free Your Dream May 2017 Kit of the month with black ink all over the panel, varying the image for interest.  

You know what comes next right, I used the half Doily stamp from the Happy Little Moment Smak Kit (July 2015) at the top and bottom of my panel using the same method as I mention earlier this week.  I used my Misti and a Ranger Blending Tool with a Circle Foam and Deco Foil Transfer Gel as ink on my stamp.  I also did this for the polka dot stamp (used at an angle on the top and bottom of my panel opposite of the doily). (Polka Dot stamp from Love Life As It Is set).

I set my panel aside to dry (about 30 mins or so).  In the meantime, I used the sentiment from Ember Girl with embossing ink on a piece of vellum and then heat set some Black Embossing Powder and cut out the sentiment with a circle die.


Once my background panel was dry, I cover the two doily image with Green Foil and the polkadots wtih Opal Foil (both from Deco Foil/Thermoweb) and then ran it through my laminator twice.  I peeled back the foil and Voila!  I attached my three Angie Girls at angles down my panel and glue the panel down to my white slim line cardbase.  I then affixed my sentiment.  Finally, for some more glitz, I used Diamond Stickles to all the accents on the Angie Girl images.

Do you have a favorite project from me this week? Do you have a favorite Angie Girl?  Let me know below.

2020 Growing In Unity Week Post #4

I can't believe the week is almost over (and 2020).  I am going to end 2020 with another card featuring Diana Girl (from the Angie girls by Angie Blom).




I stared by stamping with a black Copic friendly ink and coloring up Diana with Copic Markers in the Red, Blue and Gold theme.  I used a grey marker on the bottom to ground her.  Next, I used my scan and cut to cut her out.  I used a straight blade to carefully cut a slit inside her legs and then my super pointy fussy cutting scissors to finish removing the white uncolored cardstock.

Next taking an A2 white card panel, I used a blue and red ink from my stash to ink blend a very loose background.  I didnt blend the colors together much or concentrate on making a very smooth blend as I was leaving some white to show through and I knew I would be using a background stamp as well.

I lined up my blended card panel and the Hit the Brick background stamp (a Unity Stamp Co and Brutus Monroe Collaboration) in my Mini Misti.  I first stamped the background with some black ink.  Then I wiped of my stamp and using a Ranger blending tool and foam circle, I added Deco Foil Transfergel to the stamp.  I applied the gel to the foam circle with my finger and carefully pounced the stamp over the entire background stamp, adding more transfer gel to the foam as needed.  I stamped the background and when I lifted the Misti lid the panel stuck to my stamp, (this is fine, I ran my fingers over the backside to make sure the transfer gel attached the the panel).  I carefully removed the panel and set it aside to dry. (about 30-60 mins)  Next I took a small paintbrush and carefully brushed the 
parts of my Diana stamp that I wanted to be gold (belt, necklace, tiara, boots, cuffs) and set that aside to dry.  I very quick cleaned my stamp, paintbrush and even my foam circle with some water to remove any leftover transfer gel.

I found a piece of red cardstock from my scratch paper and cut it down to just shy of 4.25" x 5.5" to be a mat for my colored panel.  I used a circle die that would fit around the sentiment from the Diana girl set and cut it out of the center of the red panel.  Using my powder bag to treat the circle, I stamped the sentiment with embossing ink (with the help of my mini Misti) and covered the sentiment in Gilded Embossing Powder from Brutus Monroe.  I set the sentiment wiht my heat tool.

Once my panel and Diana Girl were dry, I covered them with Deco Foil Gold Foil and ran them through my preheated laminator (twice).  I just love the reveal of peeling back the foil to see the final results.
I used liquid glue to attach my sentiment circle and Diana to my Brick Wall background and then that panel to my red mat.  After attaching everything to my card panel, I decided I wanted to enchance the stars on her costume.  I used a star border die from my stash to cut out the stars and attach them to the thigh and breast of Diana (where the black star stamped).  I also added a few of these white star around my sentiment.

Here is a close up of the foil, the picture does not do the shine justice. But oooh and look at the texture on the bricks.


What do you think?  Don't you just love it?  The inspiration for this card is my Aunt who is undergoing Chemotherapy this week. She is a wonderful woman and I admire her so much.  I plan on mailing this card to her right after the new year.

2020 Growing in Unity Post #3

Today's card was a super fun one for me to create.  I started with an A2 white card panel and ink blended on some pink and grey inks.  Next, I took the script stamp from the (be fearless) June 2017 SMAK kit and inked with some Red ink and randomly stamped it over my background.  I also took the doily stamp fromt this kit and stamped it in a couple of place in a grey ink.


The next thing I did, I totally give credit to Whitney for showing this in a live this past week.  I used the hearts from ...don't give up and stamped them in grey ink along the top of my panel.  After cleaning off my stamp, I then using a ranger blending tool with a foam circle, I added Deco Foil Transfer Gel to the stamp in a pouncing motion and stamped it to my card panel.  I cleaned off the stamp well and repeated the process towards the bottom of my panel.  Two tips I have for this, use your finger to spread the Transfer Gel onto the foam circle and make sure you clean your stamps off right away.

I let the panel dry for a few minutes (the transfer gel does not take long for this techinique but the longer you let it set the better the results- I try to wait at least 30 mins).  While my panel was drying I cut out a variety of hearts from vellum and white scraps.  I also created my card base out of white cardstock and cut down a mat from grey card stock.

Next I stamped out the heart from Love Makes the World with Copic friendly Black ink and colored it in with a couple of Pink and Grey markers.  I used my Scan and Cut to cut it out.

Finally my panel was ready for the next step,  I used opal foil from Deco/Thermoweb and ran my panel through my laminator twice.  This was the first time I personally had tried this techinque and I love it so much I have been making many backgrounds with foil, stamps and transfer gel this week.

To complete my card, I glued the panel down to the mat and then to my card base.  I used liquid glue to attached the Copic colored heart image and many of the small die cut hearts.  For some dimension I used some foam squares to attached a few of the hearts.


Here is my attempt to show the shimmer, which does not photograph well.

I really love this techinque and thinkg this card turned out so fun.  I can't wait to send it to someone.

What techinque is new to you that you ahve recently used that you have fallen in love with?

2020 Growing In Unity Week Post #2

For my second Growing in Unity Week post, I focus again on an Angie Blom stamp, but this time I had to include the guys.  I used the Forrest Guy stamp set to create a birthday card for my guy.  His birthday is coming up and I thought this would be a perfect chance to be ahead in my card making for once.  

I started by stamping out "Forrest" in Copic friendly ink on an A2 card panel made from Neenah 110 lb cardstock.  I colored him in with Copic markers.  Next, I cut him down using some rectangle dies from Hero Arts.  I wanted the panel to be smaller so we could see the other panel I made.



My second panel was very fun to make.  I just took a green piece of cardstock from my scrap bin and cut it down to A2 card panel size.  I used the Vintage Burlap Background stamp in my Misit with Embossing Ink.  Next I usedBrutus Monroe Raven Sparkle Embossing Powder in a couple of spots on my background and carefully flipped over my panel to "throw" off the extra powder onto a scrap sheet of copy paper.  I did this careful "throw" technique because I wanted to used a second embossing powder on the rest of the background.  I chose a clear powder from Brutus Monore and followed the same steps as above.  Then I used my heat tool to set both embossing powders.  I like the two tone look that the embossing powders givee my background. (In hindsight, I would do the clear first and then the black, as there is always some leftover and I do not want to contaminate or waste any embossing powder.)

Here is a close up of the two different embossing powders.  The Raven Sparkle has a little glitter in it which is why its one of my favorite black Embossing Powders.


I also used the same ink and Raven Sparkle Embossing Powder for my sentiment on another piece of the same green cardstock and attached it to the front of my colored panel.

I glued both the background and colored panel down on an A2 Black Card Base.  For the inside of my card I messily stamped the same Vintage Burlap stamp in the corner of a white card panel with a light green ink and a sentiment for my honey with black ink.

2020 Growing in Unity Post #1


Happy Monday!  We have made it to the last week of the year.  I was lucky enough to be chosen to be the Growing in Unity Girl of the week.  I will be posting a project every day this week (M-F) using different Unity Stamp Company products.  Make sure to stop back every day and comment for a chance to win one of two prizes from Unity Stamp Co

I first heard of Unity during one of Angela and Whitney's lives on Facebook.  I thought they were so fun and engaging.  I then met them when I took a class at Junkiefest in 2019 not knowing that they were a company located in my home state of Minnesota.  I fell in love with their Angie Girl stamps and the obsession began.  Over the past two years, I have grown my Unity stamp collection which is primarily made up of  the faceless girls and background stamps.

Today's card is a very simple one that was inspired by my daughter, who lives over 1,000 miles away from me. The stamp I featured is the Wear Confidence stamp set by Angie Blom.  I started by stamping out our girl on some white cardstock with a Copic friendly ink and then colored her in with some teal as that is my daughters favorite color.  She has beautiful long brown hair that I also included in my coloring.  I fussy cut her out and then started on the rest of my card.

Close up to show the shimmer on the corset, which of course is super sparkly in person.


I decided to make a mini slim card.  I took a Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110 lb cardstock, cut down to  7x6 inches and scored at 3.5 inches to make a 3.5x6" card Portrait card base.  I cut another piece of white cardstock down to 3.5x6" and used an oval die from my stash to cut out a window in the panel.  Then I ran the panel through my Big Shot using the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  (The panel is a little long, so I flipped it around and ran it partially through my machine again to finish the pattern, keeping just a very small space that did not emboss all the way.)

I used some Guppy Ink from Simon Hurley Creates and a blending brush to ink my card base just were it would show through the window.  I used a thank you sentiment (with a teal ink) from Brian guy in the small unembossed area on my Swiss Dot panel. If any dots where there, I used my bone folder to press them down and make the area smooth.  Next I glued the panel to my card base.  I used liquid glue to the back of my Copic colored girl and used my tweezers to slip it behind my embossed panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set inside my card in the same teal ink I used on the front of the card.

Finally, I added some clear wink of stella to the corset top and center of the yellow flowers of my colored image to give a little sparkle. This card fits in a standard letter envelope, which is one of the reasons I really like the mini slim size.

I love this card and it just reminds me so much of my girl.  I love how she is not afraid to wear what she wants and do her makeup as her mood fits her.  She has a saying she used in high school show choir and dance; "fake it to you make it!" and I think this saying just fits so well with that.  Be confident. no matter what you are wearing.  If you like it, then go for it.  I wish all of our young ladies and little girls could just have that embedded in their heads.  

What do you think of my project?  Do you have a favorite Angie Girl? If so, which one? (I have used one on 4 of my 5 projects this week)  

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to come by tomorrow where I will share a fun birthday card I made for my honey's upcoming birthday!

December 2020 Brutus Monroe Stencil of the Month

For my card project this week, I started by using the Stencil of the month and some Orange Chroma Glaze on a 5.5 X 4.25" white card panel.  Once it was dry, my card took off in a whole new direction.  I cut my panel down the white sections in the middle creating four sections.  I used the two "pentagon" shape pieces on my card panel and had two leftover triangle pieces for another project.  I glued the two pentagon shapes to the top and bottom of a piece of orange cardstock that I cut down to just shy of 3.5" x 8.5." I planned on making a slim line card and wanted a little bit of white showing around the edges of my panel. 

Next I took some 0.25" white strips and using my grid mat, I lined them up as straight as possible on my card panel and used liquid glue to attach them.  Next I took the hello and shadow dies that came with slim line panel dies during the Black Friday free gift with purchase and cut them out with coordinating cardstock.  I attached the hello letters to the shadow (using the negative to line them up properly).  I attached this at an angle to the center of my card panel and then affixed the whole thing to my white slim line card base.


For a little added dimension, I used some of the Flat Back Pearls in the Orange color to the portions of the stenciled panel and some in the white color to each of the skinny white strips at the top and bottom.

Brutus Monroe Stamp of the Month (December 2020)


Can you believe it's finally December 2020?  That means one last Stamp of the Month from Brutus Monroe. This month is an adorable Snowman!


My card this week's features a couple of stamp sets and lots of masking.  I started out by stamping the Snowman from the December Stamp of Month, the Christmas Tree and the Gift (two times) from the Good Tidings stamp set on Masking Paper.  I used my Brutus Monroe scissors to fussy cut all of the images out.

I started with the Snowman, and stamped him on my card panel with Brutus Monroe Raven Detail ink.  I covered the snowman with the mask and then stamped out the gift pile, masked and stamped it again.  I covered the second pile of gifts with a mask and then stamped out the Christmas tree.  I wanted the tree in the background with the presents in the front.  I wanted the Snowman in the very front.  (Stamping tip, always stamp the image you want in the front first.)  I did cover the tree with a mask as well because I planned on ink blending my background and wanted the images to stay white.  

For my background, I used some post-it notes to create some snowdrifts and attached those to the bottom of my card panel.  Then, I used a light, medium and dark blue Distress Oxide inks.  Using blending tools, I started with the lightest color just around my tree and towards the bottom of where the snow piles would be.  I then used the darkest ink around the top and sides of my panel leaving a little white space between it and the lightest blue. I blended my medium in between both light and dark.  To smooth out the colors and make them blend, I went back and forth between the colors until I was happy.  I added a small amount of black soot to the very edges to make it more of a night scene and blended it down with my dark blue ink.

Next, keeping my masks in place, I used some water in my spritzer to add water spots to my background.  I placed my panel in my splat box and using some White and Pearl Aqua Pigments (separately), with a tiny bit of water, I flicked the color on my panel all over.  I also used some shimmer spritz from my stash to add some more splatter as well.

Then, the moment of truth, peeling off my masks.  I used the tip of my pick tool to carefully help me lift the edges and pull back all of my masks.  My next step was to color all of my images with a variety of Copic markers.  I stayed with a limited color pallet, using a red, green, yellow, and grey color scheme.  Once finished, I used my Pearl Aqua pigment to add shimmer to the stars, presents, and the band of the snowman's hat.  

Before I added my panel to my card base or my sentiment, I put the whole panel back in my splat box and followed the same steps as above to add splatter to my card. (It is snowing so the tree, snowman and presents all need some snow too.)  Next I took the snowflakes from the December stamp of the month to an acrylic block and stamped them around the edge of my A2 white card base, just around the edges, with the medium blue Distress Oxide ink, making sure to rotate the snowflakes around to make a varied pattern. I used any leftover ink from my blending brush on just the very edge of the card base as well.

I trimmed down my card panel with a Rectangle die from my stash and attached it to the front of my card base.  Lastly, I used a foiled Merry Christmas sentiment that was leftover from another project and glued it to the top right corner of my card base.

Once again, listed below are aflliated links to the products I used that are available in the Brutus Monroe store, (As usual, there is no additional cost to you, however, I do receive a small compensation from these links which helps fund my page.)

Brutus Monroe Christmas Tag Project

 This week I made a set of Christmas Tags.  I pulled out some blue card stock from my stash and used a Stitched Tag die to cut our four tags.  


First, I stamped a To:/From: stamp on the back of all four tags using Raven Detail ink.  Then, I used all of the snowflakes from the new Snow Scenes stamp set with the Alabaster Pigment ink.  I set these aside to dry (pigment ink takes a little while to dry).  Next, I took this adorable snowman from the Stamp of the Month, with some Raven Detail ink and stamped it four times on the Perfect Blend Alcohol Paper.
I used a few Copic markers to color in the hat, band, and nose for the snowman.  I used my scan and cut to cut out all four Snowman leaving a 0.04 border. I used liquid glue to attach them to my dry tags and then used Diamond Stickles to add sparkle to the hat brim and puff ball.  Once the stickles dried, I lined up my tags in my Mini Misti to stamp the Sentiment from Jolly Snowman in the corner also using Raven Detail in.  

Next, I used some scrap white paper to cut out the smallest of the Simple Snowflake dies a dozen or so times.  Using some Pearl Aqua Pigment with just a small spritz of water, I painted all the snowman bodies and all of the die cut snowflakes.  (I love using the Pearl Aqua Pigment to give shimmer and shine to my projects.). Once the snowflakes dried (It only takes a min or so), I attached 3 each to the tags, cutting off any overhang around the edges.  I looked through my ribbon stash and found some sheer ribbon,  red and white, & blue and white bakers twine, cut  a few inches off and threaded them through the hole of my tags to finish off my project.



Here is a slo-mo video trying to show you the  shimmer from the Pearl Aqua Pigment, on the snowman and snowflakes.


Thanks for stopping by.  Do you make Christmas Tags?  Leave me a comment below.

Roundimals Stamps and Dies From Brutus Monroe

 Have you seen the adorable new Roundimals stamps and die combos from Brutus Monroe?  So far there are four sets that have been released with plans for more animals added in the future.  I absolutely ADORE these animals and could not wait to color them up.


I decided to make a  quick notecard set featuring each Animal and pair them with a stencil, one ink color and one kind of embellishment.  These cards came together so quickly.  The longest part was choosing the Copic colors and apply the makers.  All of my cards are top folding A2 cards with white card bases.  The four animals were stamped with Raven detail ink on Perfect blend paper, colored with a variety of Copics and cut out with the coordinating dies.

Here is the full set of cards together in one photo



Onto how I made the individual cards.  The first is our adorable awesome Polly Pig.  I paired Polly with the Fallin Hearts Stencil and actually used Bee Sting Ink from Simon Hurley Creates.  I used a light hand with my blending tool to give the ink a lighter color and not such a dark "red" color.  I arranged the card in my Misti and stamped the sentiment from the set with the Bee Sting Ink as well. After I attached my piggie, I dug out some Pink Confetti Sequins that I received in the April Inspiration box early this year.  Do you just want to squeeze him? 


Next up is our Roundimal Owl-Hoot.  The eyelashes on this stamp.  So so cute! I pared Hoot with the Turbine stencil and Later Gator Ink from Simon Hurley Creates.  The turbine stencil is a past stencil of the month and one of my absolute favorites of all time.  Once again I used the same ink to stamp out the sentiment and found the Prism Sequins - Green to finish off my card.


Next up is the totally squishable Katie Koala.  I paired Katie with the Deco Flower Stencil and Grr! Ink (also from Simon Hurley Creates). After stamping the sentiment with the Grr! Ink and attaching the Koala, I used liquid glue to add some Prism Sequins - Gold for a final touch,


The final Roundimal that was released this time is a sweet Penny Penguin.  Penny had to be paired with High Tide stencil. I chose to use the Slippery When Wet ink from Simon Hurley Creates because when I was coloring my Penguin, I looked up some images on google.  I added a little yellow fir to the belly and sides of my penguins face.  Once again I used the same ink to stamp the sentiment and some of the Prism Sequins in Marigold.


Thank you for stopping by.  Which Roundimal is your favorite so far?  What animal do you hope to see as a Roundimal in the future?  Leave a comment below.


Here is a list of products that I used.  All of these products are available at the Brutus Monroe Store. (Affiliated links are at no additional cost to you, however they do help support content on my page.)


Valentine Cards with Brutus Monore

  For my card today, I started by placing some media paste on two different piles on my glass mat and I mixed in Cherry Aqua Pigment into on...
