Have You Tried This Brusho Technique?


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!


Lisa's Inklings:

  • Card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".
  • Top layer is 4" x 5 1/4".
  • Stamp set: Stampin' Up! Waterfront Photopolymer

Once you "play" with Brusho, you'll be trying it for your projects in all kinds of ways.  I was a little apprehensive at, I LOVE it!

Make A Fun Background for Cards with Stampin' Up! Tailored Tag Punch

Coffee-card-tailored-tag-punchThe Tailored Tag Punch from Stampin' Up! can be used to make fun backgrounds for your handmade cards.  This one above was made with the Coffee Cafe Photopolymer Stamp Set Bundle and the coordinating designer paper, Coffee Break, which is on the Last Chance List.

Coffee creations are on your horizon with this bundle of products.

The stamp images coordinate seamlessly with the framelits to help you create coffee cups of all shapes and sizes. The die includes a piece to create an embossed cup sleeve for a realistic looking cup.

Coffee Café Photopolymer Stamp Set
Some people firmly believe that coffee is life. And whether that's you or not, you certainly know someone who feels that way. You should probably get a cup of coffee (or water if that's your thing), buy this peppy set, and start creating.

Coffee Cups Framelits Dies
Create die-cut accents in seconds with Framelits dies and the Big Shot. Framelits’ open design allows you to place them where you want for precise cutting.

Wouldn't this make a great background on a scrapbook page?  Even if you just covered part of a 12 x 12 page, it would make a nice accent behind a photo or journaling block.

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.

Hope to Go LIVE on Facebook Tonight!


Happy Thursday and with this writing, I hope to go Live on Facebook tonight at 7:30 PM Central Time (8:30 PM Eastern, 6:30 PM MT, 5:30 PT).  I have been fighting off a head cold but will do my best to go LIVE on my Ink and Inspirations Facebook business page.
