Have You Tried This Brusho Technique?

0EB70C3B-0155-4E90-8633-F03A3CDF8F95

Have your tried this direct-to-stamp Brusho technique?  It is so artsy and fun!  I just can't say enough good things about Brusho and so happy it is available to use from Stampin' Up!

The colors are so vibrant and there are lots of options depending on how you blend/mix them.


 Package includes 5 pots, 1 each of 5 colors: Brilliant Red, Gamboge (orange), Moss Green, Prussian Blue, Yellow
  

Brusho = Watercolor ink crystals! Sprinkle them directly on water-washed paper and watch the colors burst! Or, sprinkle on watercolor paper and spritz with water! Or, mix with water and watercolor with a brush! There are so many possibilities... there are so many techniques and ways to use this coloring medium. Take a look at the video below.

Click here to see this Brusho Technique video on You Tube.

As you can see in the photos, not two creations ever turn out the same!

Easy Stampin' Up! Birthday Cards

Easy-stampin-up-birthday-card-birthday-memoriesOne of my favorite retiring group of products from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog is this Birthday Delivery stamp set and coordinating framelits bundle and the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper.

The base of this card is one of our colors that is leaving during the new COLOR REVAMP.  If you love "Soft Sky", be sure to get your ink refill and card stock now!

Some crafty folks see fussy cutting as tedious work but I love to do it when chatting on the phone or watching TV.  This paper is awesome with these fun and colorful animal images for birthdays especially for the young folk!   You'll see in today's video tutorial my process of putting this card together.  (Excuse my headset cord!  I'll work on controlling that in future videos!)

Let's take a look at the video...

I'll be sharing some more birthday cards with these products on my Facebook Live tomorrow evening. Be sure to tune in at 7:30 PM, Central Time.

Do You Have A Stamparatus?

Stamparatus146276GDo you have a Stamparatus?   It's a must-have tool for all stampers, the Stamparatus helps you perfectly align stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and precisely, and get complete ink coverage.

It was created by stampers for stampers, so it has all the features you want:

* Compatible with red rubber and photopolymer stamps
* 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
* Rulers on 2 sides for quick measuring
* 2 open sides so you can use larger paper
* Multiple hinges for more placement options
* 2 reversible plates for 4 sides to work with
* 1 foam mat for use with photopolymer
* 1 base with grid
* Magnet storage areas

If you have a Stamparatus, you know what an awesome tool it is for stamp placement!  If you don't have one yet...not to worry! This tool will be available in the new Stampin' Up! catalog in June.

Stampin' Up! has been awesome in providing training videos.  Here's a new one that was released last week.  The trainer gives some advice on using pressure when using the Stamparatus.

If you were not able to get a Stamparatus during the early reserve period, put it on your wish list for June 2018 when it will be available in the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

Make A Gatefold Card with Eastern Palace Suite

Gatefold-card-belly-band-4-2aToday's project is a gatefold cardmaking video makeover featuring the Eastern Palace Suite from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  This is a beautiful set and coordinating designer paper with endless possibilties for cardmaking.  It's been quite a while since I've used this set and paper so wanted to share this one today with you.

That front panel is a bit different than what I use on most belly bands.  The band itself can vary in width according to what you like but it needs to be 11" long so you have plenty of room to wrap it around the card and lap it over to adhere it in the back.

Let's take a look at the original video, a Christmas card, below.

Click HERE to see this video tutorial on You Tube.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • The belly band for today's makeover is 2" wide by 11" long.
  • The panel on the band is 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" in Dapper Denim and 2 1/4" x 4" of Very Vanilla.
  • The flower is colored with a Watercolor Pencil and Blender Pen.
  • For gatefold base, cut cardstock to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Score at 2 1/8" and  6 3/8".
