I can be Anything! featuring Brutus Monroe's Nov ATC Kit Unique Pets

 

Today I bring you a fun card featuring the stamp from the November ATC kit-Unique Pet.  I started by choosing a background from my stash that I made with Alcohol ink on Yupo paper.  After treating the front with my antistatic bag, I stamped the Chameleon with the Brutus Monroe Embossing ink and covered it with Raven Detail Embossing Powder.  I carefully heat set the powder, making sure to not get my heat tool too close to the paper (Yupo paper is plastic) and to continue to move my heat tool until all the powder was melted.  

For my back ground I used the Circle Tone stencil and blended Simon Hurley Creates Overzealous ink.  Before I removed my stencil, I spread Fallen Snow Glitter Glaze.  I removed the stencil and cleaned everything up.  While I left my panel to dry, I fussy cut out the Chameleon.  Then I found a light green piece of paper from my scrap bin and stamped the sentiment from the set with Raven Detail ink.  

I took the largest branch from the Birdhouse Builder Set and cut it out of wood grain paper. Once my panel was dry (about 30 mins) I used liquid glue to attach everything the the front of my panel.  Then I used some adhesive to attach the panel to my white A2 card base.

Brutus Monroe Oh My Gourd Aqua Pigment Shaker Card




I started with a piece of Black Watercolor paper and some White and Pearl Aqua Pigments on my glass mat.  I sprayed the Aqua Pigments with a little water and then pressed my watercolor paper into it.  I kept ink smooshing my paper and drying in between until I was happy with my pattern.  Next I used the Oh my Gourd die and ran my panel through my die cut machine, keeping the negative for my card and putting the die cut aside for now.

Then, I cut about 6 -8 more of the negative panels with the die from white scrap cardstock and glued them all together.  I used some strong double sided tape to the back of my black die cut panel and attached a piece of acetate to the panel.  Then I used more strong double sided tape to the front stacked white die cut pieces.   I flipped over the stacked panels with the negative or frame.  I temporarily placed the Oh my Gourd die cut into the center of the negative stacked piece. After spreading liquid glue all over the Oh my Gourd die cut piece and carefully lined up my A2 Card base on top.  After gently flipping it over, I removed the negative/frame piece and pressed the Oh my Gourd die cut piece in place.  



Then I added some glitter and sequins to the center of my card panel, right in the center of the Gourd.  Then I added more double stick tape and some liquid glue to the negative/frame piece.  I attached it to the front of my  card base creating a shaker card.  Then I took a piece of white cardstock and stamped the hell Gourd-Geous sentiment with Raven Detail ink and cut it out with a banner die.  I attached the sentiment to the front of the panel to finish the card.

Brutus Monroe Grateful For You Slim Line Card


I started by taking Bee Sting, Sike! and Slippery When Wet inks from Simon Hurley Creates and blended up a couple of white card panels.  Then I used my antistatic bag to treat the front of the panels, lined them up (individually) in my Original Misti and stamped both of the leaf images from Grateful Greetings with Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink.  I covered the ink with Gilded Embossing Powder and heat set it.  (I repeated this until I had 6 embossed images--I only needed 5).





Next I cut out each of the Embossed panels with the coordinating die, and trimmed the end off with my paper trimmer.  I also cut out 10 pieces of the die cut with Kraft paper.  I stacked two of each die cut together with liquid glue and attached one of my Inkblended/Embossed images on top.  This creates dimension for the front of my card.  I created my card base from some Kraft Colored cardstock.  I cut the 8.5" x 11" cardstock down to 8.5" x 7" and scored at 3.."  This creates a slim line card base that measures 8.5" x 3."




I chose my sentiment from the stamp set and used my die cuts for placement and then stamped it in Embossing Ink.  I also covered it with Gilded Embossing Powder and heat set it.  Then I used liquid glue to attach one of my Embossed Die cuts opposite of my sentiment.  Then I placed two of the Embossed Die cuts to the left side of my card base.  For my last two pieces, I attached them at an angle on the right side of my cardbase in each corner.  Finally, I used my paper trimmer to cut off an overhanging piece of die cuts.

Brutus Monroe Spooky Kids (6 cards)





Today I have 6 cards to share with you from the Spooky Kids Stamps and Coordinating Die set from Brutus Monroe.  Each card also features a different stencil and glaze also from Brutus Monroe. 


VAMPIRE

I started with Raven Cover Cardstock cut down to 4.25" x 5.5". I used some low tack tape to attach the Batty Stencil to my cardstock.  Using a silicone spatula, I spread some of the Night Sky Velveteen Glaze in the upper corner of the stencil and covered just part of it.  I only wanted a small pattern of the bats for this card.  I set the panel aside to dry.  Once it was dry I used the second largest Rectangle Foundation die to cut it out.  I used another Rectangle die from my stash to cut out a mat layer from Scarlet Cover Cardstock.  I used my embossing bag to treat the Scarlet cardstock and stamped the sentiment from Spooky Sentiments with Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink, in the center.  I covered the sticky ink with Raven Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I used a banner die from my stash to cut out the sentiment.   (Using the middle of the mat paper for my sentiment saves on paper and once I mat the Black card panel on the top, no one will ever know that I cut out a piece from the Scarlet mat.)  I stamped the Vampire from the Spooky Kids stamp set with Raven Detail ink on some Perfect Blend Alcohol Paper.  Then I colored him in with a variety of Copic markers and cut him out with the Coordinating Die.  I used liquid glue to put my card panel together with the Image, sentiment and mat.  My cardbase is made from Raven Cardstock and is standard A2 size.  For the inside of the card, I placed another piece of Scarlet cardstock, and stamped a Happy Halloween sentiment with Raven detail ink.



GHOST
I started with Raven Cover Cardstock cut down to 4.25" x 5.5". I used some low tack tape to attach the Hoiden Stencil to my cardstock. I carefully covered just the stencil with Glow in the Dark Chromas Glaze, making sure not to go outside the edges of the stencil (this is a circular stencil). I set this panel aside to dry.  Once it was dry I cut it with the second largest Rectangle Fondation Die and my mat was cut with a large Rectangle die from my stash and a green piece of paper from my scrap bin.  I used my powder tool on the green mat and stamped the sentiment from Spooky kids with Brutus Monroe Embossing ink.  After covering with Raven Embossing Powder, I heat set it and cut it out with a rectangle die.  I stamped the Ghost from Spooky Kids with Raven Detail ink on Perfect Blend Alcohol Paper and colored him in with Copic markers. After I used the coordinating die to cut him out, I used liquid glue to attach my sentiment and image to the front of my panel.  Then I attached the panel to the green amat.  To finish my card,  I chose a white A2 Card base and used liquid glue to attach my matted panel.





ZOMBIE
 I started with Raven Cover Cardstock cut down to 4.25" x 5.5". I used some low tack tape to attach the Slim Line Ripple Stencil to my cardstock at an angle. I covered the edges of my stencil with low tack tape to protect the card panel. Using a Silicone spatula, I spread some Lima Bean Velveteen Glaze across the entire stencil.  (My mind saw this stencil as a brain pattern, which I thought would fit nicely with the zombie.) While the panel was drying, I stamped my image with Raven Detail ink on some Perfect Blend Alcohol Paper,colored it in with Copics, and cut it out with its coordinating die.  Next, I cut down a green piece of paper with a rectangle die from my stash.  I treated the paper with my embossing bag and after stamping my sentiment from Spooky Sentiments with Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink, I covered it with Raven Embossing powder, heat set it and cut it out with a die from my stash.  Once my panel was dry, I used the second largest of the Rectangle Foundation dies to cut it out and mat it on my Green piece.  I used liquid glue to attach my zombie and sentiment to the front of my stenciled panel.  I attached the entire thing to a Raven A2 card base.  Inside I included another piece of green paper with a Happy Halloween Sentiment stamped on it.



WITCH
Taking a piece of white cardstock I attached the Random Dots Stencil with low tack tape.  I took some Marmalade and Amethyst Glitter Glaze and spread each color on a different side.  Then I carefully combined the colors in the middle.  I set the panel aside to dry and worked on my image.  The Spooky Kids witch was stamped on Perfect Blend Alcohol paper with Raven Detail ink and colored in with Copic markers.  I used the Coordinating die to cut her out.  Next, I looked through my scrap bin and found a light purple piece of patterned paper and cut it out with a rectangle die from my stash.  I cut a circle out of the center of the purple panel.  After treating the circle with my embossing bag, I stamped the sentiment from the set with Embossing Ink and covered it with Alabaster Embossing powder.  After heat setting it, I attached it to the front of my card panel along with my colored witch with liquid glue.  Then I glued the panel to my purple mat and then glued the whole thing to the front of my landscaped A2 white card base.



FRANKIE
I started with Raven Cover Cardstock cut down to 4.25" x 5.5". I used some low tack tape to attach the Slim Line Pathway Stencil to my cardstock. I covered the right edge of my card panel with low tack tape to protect it from my glaze.  I used a silicone spatula to spread the Purple Galaxy Glaze over the stencil.  Once I removed the stencil, I sprinkled some Fallen Snow Glitter over parts of the wet glaze for some sparkle and set the panel aside to dry. Next, I stamped the zombie image on some Perfect Blend Alcohol Paper with Raven Detail ink, I colored it in with Copic markers and cut it out with the coordinating die.  Using a scrap piece of purple paper cut down with a Rectangle die from my stash, I stamped my sentiment from the set with Embossing ink.  I sprinkled it with Alabaster Embossing Powder and heat set it.  Then I used a rectangle die to cut it out of the center of my mat.  Once.my Galaxy glaze panel was dry, I used the second largest Rectangle Foundation die to trim it down and attach it to my purple mat.  I used liquid glue to attach my sentiment and Frankie to the front of my panel.  Then I attached the entire thing to a white A2 card base.



PUMPKIN
I started with a piece of white cardstock cut down to 4.25" x 5.5". I used some low tack tape to attach the Kramer Stencil to my cardstock.  I used a silicone spatula to spread some Lima Bean Velveteen Glaze over the entire panel and then set it aside to dry.  One it was dry, I cut it out with the second largest Rectangle Foundation die.  I matted the panel on a piece of orange with white polkadot paper from my scrap bin.  This patterned paper was cut down to a mat side with another rectangle die from my stash.  Before I attached the panel to the patterned paper, I cut out a rectangle from the center with a die from my stash.  I treated this rectangle with my antistatic bag and stamped my sentiment with Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink.  I covered the ink with Raven Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I attached the Pumpkin girl and sentiment to the front of my matted Velveteen panel with liquid glue.  Then I attached the entire thing to my white A2 card base.

Stocking Shaped Card with Brutus Monroe

I started by taking an A2 card base and placing the solid outline of the Stocking Die with the left edge hanging over the fold of my cardbase and running it through my Big Shot.  Then I ran it through again with a piece of white cardstock and attached it to my stocking Cardbase.  This covers up the unfinished edge along the fold on my card base.



Taking a piece of white cardstock I sprayed the entire piece with Candy Apple Chroma Mist and Pearl Shimmer Mist and then set it aside to dry.  Once it was dry I ran the piece through my Big Shot with the Decorative (inside) Stocking Die and removed all the inside pieces.  Then I took another scrap piece of white cardstock and ran the Decorative (Inside) piece with just the top "cuff" part of the die.  Then I punched out the holes.  Using a paintbrush I covered the "cuff" piece with Pearl Aqua Pigment.  After about 10 mins of drying time, I trimmed the bottom edge of the cuff with my scissors to match the top edge of the die.  Then I used liquid glue to attach it to the Candy Apple/Pearl stocking piece.

For the backer of the stocking, I ran the outline die through with a piece of dark green cardstock scrap.  Using liquid glue to attach it to the Green outline piece to my cardbase.  Then I attached the Candy Apple/Pearl stocking piece.  Using some clear jewels and tiny green gems, I used some liquid glue to attach them to each of the circles on the Cuff part of the stock.  For a sentiment I used a Christmas Wishes die from my stash and die cut some Silver Mirror card scrap and attached it with liquid glue.  For a finishing touch, I used liquid glue to attach another of the tiny green gems to the "i' in Christmas.

Got Brains? Halloween Card with Brutus Monore

Today's card was inspired by one of my favorite TV shows. I started by stamping the adorable Zombie from Spooky Kids with Raven Detail ink on Perfect Blend Alcohol Paper.  Then I colored him in with some Copic Markers.  I used the coordinating die to cut out the image and then I cut 4 more zombies out of white scatch paper and glued them all together.  This builds dimension behind my colored image.

My cardbase is made from Raven Cardstock and is an side folding A2 card. I placed it in my splat box and splattered some Pearl Shimmer Spray.  Next a peice of gray cardstock and stamped it with a woodgrain stamp from my stash with Woof! ink from Simon Hurley Creates.  Then I cut it out twice with the Woodland Forest Die.  

For my zombie herd, I cut several from black cardstock scraps.  I used a blending tool and Pumice Stone Distress Oxide ink on each of the zombies to give a little shadow to each diecut.  Once my background was dry, I layed the black zombie die cuts and once I was happy with the placement, I used some press n seal to pull my zombies up all together.  I flipped the press n seal over and used liquid glue to attach all the zombie together.  Then I covered the entire herd with liquid glue and flipped it over on top of my background.  Then I carefully removed the press and seal, which helped my place the zombie right where I wanted them.

Then I used some glue to attach my Woodland Forest Die Cuts on top of my zombie herd.  Next, I cut off any overhang.  For a sentiment I grabbed an older stamp set and stamped the Got Brains? with Raven Detail ink on a scrap of Perfect Blend Alcohol paper and used my trimmer to cut it down.

Finally, I used more liquid glue to attach my colored Zombie to the lower right corner of my card. Because of the dimension, I used an acrylic block to hold him in place until the glue dried.

STAMPtember 2021 Brutus Monroe Limited Edition Set


Today is the day for the Limited Edition Brutus Monroe #Stamptember set with Simon Says Stamp. This set is only availble in September and while supplies lasts over at Simon Says Stamp.


Apple Card: 

I started by stamping out the apple and sticking with Raven Detail ink on Brutus Monroe Perfect Blend Alcohol Paper. Next, I colored them in with Copic Markers.  Then, using my Scan and cut to Cut the images out and attach the stick to the back of my apple with a piece of washi tape.  For my card panel, I took a piece of Brutus Monroe Scarlet Cardstock and cut it down to 4.25" x 5.5."  Using my Misti, I stamped the caramel apple image all over the paper with Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink.  Then I covered the entire panel with Pearl Embossing Powder from Brutus Monroe and heat set it.  I cut down the panel to about 4" x 5.25" and attached it the front of my top folding A2 white card base.  To attach my colored image, I used some of Brutus Monroe's Easy Foam Tabs.  I stamped the sentiment with Simon Hurley Creates Bee Sting ink and used a sentiment strip die to cut it out.  Finally, I attached the sentiment to the front of my card and trimmed off any overhang.  


Snowman Card:

I started out stamping the snoman image on Brutus Monroe Perfect Blend Alcohol Paper with Raven Detail ink.  I used Copics to color in my image and then fussy cut it out.
Using an older Darice Embossing folder, I ran my white card panel through my Big Shot and trimmed it down to about 4" x 5.25."  I chose a piece of paper from the Brutus Monroe Playful Plaid pack and cut it down to A2 card front size.  Using a small piece of the same paper,  I cut an rectangle to mat behind my Snowman piece and attached it to my embossed white panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the set with Raven Detail ink in the top left corner above my image and then matted the panel to the plaid mat.  After I attached the matted panel to my A2 Card base, I used some glossy accents on the eyes, mouth and hat brim of my image for some shine.



Halloween Card:
I stated with a Precut Slim line panel from Brutus Monroe and placed it in my splat box.  I used some Cobweb Limited edition to spray the front of my panel.  Then I used  Tangerine Orange Chroma Mist, (removing the nozzle and using the tube) to splatter over the background.  Next, I used some Creamy Green and Pearl Aqua Pigments which I mixed with some water on an acrylic block, and splattered this over the entire panel with a paint brush.  I repeated this with Hunter mixed with Pearl Aqua Pigments.  To speed the drying, I heated the panel with my heat tool.  Then I used the Spooky Eyes Slim Line Stencil and  spread the Glow in the Dark Chroma glaze over the panel.  After removing and cleaning my tools, I set the panel aside to dry. While the panel dried, I stamped my images with Raven Detail ink on Perfect Blend Alcohol paper and colored them in with Copic Markers. Once my panel was dry, I cut it down to 3" x 8.25" and matted it on a piece of Raven Cardstock that measured 3.5" x 8.5."  I arranged the panel in my Misti and stamped the Spooky sentiment in Raven Detail Ink, using the mummy apples for placement.  I attached the Mummy Apples with liquid glue.  Then I adhered the entire panel to my Precut Slim line card base from Brutus Monroe.  Finally, I added some Glow in the Dark Chroma Glaze to the eyes of my images with a fine tip paint brush. 

Here is a close up of the Pearl Embossing Powder on my apple card:

Trio of Halloween Slimline Cards with Brutus Monroe

 

Today I am up on the Brutus Monroe Blog.  Fall is tied as my favorite season along with winter (shocking I know).  However I love Halloween, my daughter was born in October and fittingly could celebrate Halloween all year round.  I always tried to make Halloween special for her and I love making her Halloween cards.

Today I have three cards for you featuring the witches from the Crafty Witch and Witches Brew Stamp sets.  All three cards were made the same but with different stamps, inks and stencils.

To start, I cut down three heavy white cardstock to 8.5" x 7" panels, scored each at 3.5" to create my card bases.  Each 8.5" x 11" cardstock gives me one card base and a card panel.  The card panels measure 8.5" x 4" which I cut down to 8.5" x 3."  First I used Raven Detail ink to stamp the three witches on the bottom half of the card panels.  Then, I used Copic markers to color them.  

Before I inkblended my backgrounds, I created masks for each witch with Masking Paper (or you could use Post-it note paper).  I trimmed each mask down the middle of the outside edge of each stamp.  This gives me masks that are slightly smaller than my image, but yet still cover up the image completely.

Once I covered each colored image with their coordinating masks, I used Distressed inks to lightly ink each background.  Then I used the same ink and a stencil to heavily apply the pattern to a few areas around the panel.
For the Spell Book witch, I used Seedless Preserves and the Batty Stencil.
For the Pumpkin witch, I used Twisted Citron and the Hidden Temple Stencil.
For the Cauldron witch, I used Carved Pumpkin and the Honeycomb Stencil.

Next, keeping the masks in place, I place the three panels in my splat box so I could add some splatter.  For the Black Splatter, I used Raven detail reinker and a tiny bit of water to thin it out on an acrylic block and a paint brush to flick it over the card panels.  For the Shimmer splatter, I removed the pump/sprayer from the Pearl Shimmer Mist and used the plastic tube and lightly shook it over the card panels.

Once the panels dried, (it took about 15 mins) I placed each panel in my Original Misti and stamped the sentiments from Crafty Witch with Raven Detail ink towards the top of each panel.  Then I matted each panel on some Raven Cardstock that measured about 3.25" x 8.5" and then finally glued the panels to my white card bases.

Which card is your favorite?  Do you decorate for fall or  Halloween? Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.

Oh my Gourd & Glitter Glaze from Brutus Monroe


Start by cutting out an Orange cardstock A2 panel.  Using the Misti for placement, stamp the Pumpkin from Oh My Gourd in the bottom left corner of the panel with Raven Detail ink.  Using a green Copic marker, color in the leaves and vines of the image.  While the stamp is still in your Misti, stamp out the three squash blossoms on yellow cardstock scraps.   Next, stamp the pumpkin image on masking paper and fussy cut out.

Arrange the mask over the pumpkin image.  Using the Batty Stencil, place toward the top of the panel, covering up any bats that you do not want to use with low tack tape.  Using a palette knife, carefully smooth over Raven Glitter Glaze over the three bats desired.  Remove stencil and mask carefully.  Set the panel aside to dry. Quickly clean up the palette knife and any glaze on the stencil.

Once the panel is dry, arrange the Spooky eyes stencil on the background, covering unwanted eyes with low tack tape.  Using a palette knife, smooth Key Lime Glitter Glaze over eyes.  Remove and clean stencil, letting the panel dry. Continue these steps until you have the desired number of eyes in the background. Remember to dry between steps when placing the stencil in a new area.


Once the panel is completely dry, line up the Happiest Halloween stamp (or sentiment of choice) in the open space and use the Misti to stamp it in Raven Detail ink.  Using a blending tool, lightly blend some Raven Detail ink around the edges of the panel.

Fussy cut out the yellow squash blossoms and use liquid glue to attach over the image. To make the "cinderella pumpkin," place some Pearl Aqua Pigment on a glass mat and use a small paintbrush to paint the pumpkin.  Once the panel is fully dry, cut it down slightly and mat it on a black mat measuring 4.25" x 5."  Finally, attach the matted panel to a white A2 card base.

Haunted House Slim Line Card with Brutus Monroe


 


Starting with a 8.5" x 3.5" white card panel, I placed the Simple Blends Circle stencil in the middle of my panel.  Using a blending tool, I inked the center of the stencil with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink and the outer part with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink. Once I was happy with the blend, I removed the stencil and covered my inked Circle with the Negative from the Simple Blends Circle Stencil.  I lightly blended the edges with Antique Linen and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks to create a halo effect around my Moon.

Next I blended Stormy Sly and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks to create a dark night sky.  To increase the effect, I blended a little Black Soot Distress Ink around the edge of the panel to deepen the darkness.  Next, I lightly misted the background with water and Pearl Chroma Mist to create "stars" in the sky.

While I let my ink dry into the paper, I stamped out the house from Beware Blvd on Perfect Blend Alcohol Paper with Raved Detail ink.  I let the ink dry for about a minute and then colored it in with a variety of Grey Copic Markers. I used W9, W7, W5, W3 on the house and chimney.  For the Room I used C7, C5, and C3.
For the eyes I used YR23 and W1 for the windows.  Then I used my scissors to fussy cut it out.  To clean up any edges, I used my Memento Black marker to go around the edges. I used Y06 to color in the space between the house and the pipe to match my moon.

Once my background panel was dry, I used my antistatic powder bag over the front of my panel and placed it in my Misti.  I lined up the tree from the Crafty Witch stamp set and stamped it several times with Embossing Ink.  I covered the sticky ink with Raven Sparkle Embossing Powder and set it with my heat tool.  I repeated this with the other side of my panel.

I used liquid glue to attach my haunted house to the middle of my panel.  For my sentiment I used the Enter if you Dare stamp from Beware Blvd and stamped it on vellum with Embossing ink.  I covered it with Raven Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I cut it out with a Circle Foundation Die and used my finger to smear some liquid glue on the back to attach it to the right of my Haunted House.  Finally, I cut my panel down about 1/8" and matted it on black cardstock and then onto a 8.5" x 3.5" white cardbase.

Full Panel Shaker using Chroma Mists and Preprinted Watercolor Panels from Brutus Monroe


Lightly spray out a small amount of Chroma Mists in Bumblebee Yellow, Tangerine Orange, and Candy Apple Red on a Glass Mat or Pallet.  Then take the leaf panel from the Preprinted Watercolor Panel - Fall.  Using a waterbrush, paint each of the leaves with water.  Pick up a Chroma Mist color of choice and drop the color on each leaf.  I chose to let some of the colors mix.  Then either let the panel dry or use a heat tool to dry.  

Repeat with the background, painting on water and dropping in Chroma Mist colors.  Drying between layers, repeat until the colors are what you want.  Using a Rectangle foundation die, cut the panel down to desired size.  

Next, cut down recycled stamp (or other) packaging to 1/2" bigger than your panel.  Then, using Double Sided Tissue Tape - 3/8" on all sides on the back of your dry water colored panel.  Remove three sides of the backing from the Tissue tape and fold over the packaging, wrapping it snuggly against the sides of the panel.  Fill the front panel through the fourth side with desired, sequins, glitter, or shaker fillings.  Remove tape from the fourth side and fold over packaging.  You can carefully trim the corners that overlap to remove extra bulk.

Using more Tissue Tape, over the edges of the packaging and back of the panel and remove release paper.  Attach to a red panel, leaving a 1/4" border.  Adhere matted panel to the front of a Kraft A2 Card base.

For a sentiment,  take some Aqua pigment paper and lightly spray some Tangerine Orange and Bumblebee Yellow Chroma Mist.  Let dry and use the Thanks script from Christopher's Sentiments Cutting die and a die cut machine.  Cut the Shadow layer from some Kraft cardstock and adhere the sentiment together.  Use Liquid Glue to attach the sentiment to the front of the shaker pouch.
