CARD DETAILS:

I started by creating the background for the flowers.   I used Brutus Monroe Watercolor paper, I put a little of the Watercolor powder in the center of the card and to achieve the soft splashes I add very little water with a brush.  I also added some black splashes to unify the design. 


For the flowers I stamped them on Brutus Monroe Watercolor Cardstock with Brutus Monroe Embossing ink and Raven Embossing powder.  I added water to all the stamped flowers and added the powder.  I really like the irregular look of the color.  To finish the card I adhere the flowers and stamped the sentiment.

Pool Party Unicorn

Hello CDD Fans, Waleska here to share with you on Day 4 of our June Release the new Stamp Set "100% Magical"... This set is truly magical with lots of summer Unicorns having fun in the Sun, I know you will love this  new set.  I created this adorable unicorn having fun on a pool maybe in her backyard or on a friend's house... let me share with you now I create this fun card.



CARD DETAILS:

To make this card, I created my own glitter paper by putting Double Sided adhesive tape  (you can find this at the CDD Shop in various sizes) on a white card base and then adding the colored glitter I wanted.  I loove the look of glitter shiny water don´t you?


This adhesive works great and the glitter stays very well.  I then cut this piece with a wave die from the Ocean Border Dies to create the pool water, with a strip of gray cardstock I created the pool border.


I also wanted to create a wood fence, to do that I cut a strip of kraft cardstock, with a scoring board I score every 1/2 inch to create the wood logs after that I used distress inks in a swiping motion in the bottom and on top with colors Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo.  You should totally try this technique the wood looks awesome.


For the Sun I used the Bright Horizons Stencil with two Oxide inks colors Squeezed Lemonade and  Fossilized Amber.  I adhere every piece to the front part of the card, with an exacto knife I cut a little line in the glitter water to put the unicorn floating.  I finally stamped the sentiment in the right up corner of the card.


I hope you like this card as much as I do and can be as excited as we are for this new Release!!!  Be ready to get your new stamps and dies from this release on June 15th at 3pm.

Have a wonderful day!!!

What is Canoe with you?

Hello Friends Waleska here, today I want to share with you a card I created with one of the most adorable Sugar Pea Designs set called Indian Summer. This set is full of racoons in different poses to create great outdoor scenes.  Let me share with you how I created this card.


CARD DETAILS:

To create this card I used many different Oxide Ink colors, I wanted to make a night scene on a lake with this cute guys.  To make the this scene I tear a piece of white cardstock trying to form the shape of a lakeside.


I used this piece as a mask to apply the Oxide Ink colors Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo  ans Faded Jeansfor the forest.  I used Mermaid Lagoon Oxide Ink for the water.  


I added some water splashes and colored  with markers three of the racoons from the set.  I also created a moon with a circle die, gray ink and water splases.


I stamped the sentiment and adhere all the elements to the front panel of my card.  I hope you like my card and I hace inspired you to create something amazing today!

Surface Sprays!!!

Hello Friends Welcome back for another Wednesday Quick Tip...using Brutus Monroe stamps and products, every Wednesday you can find a blog hop at the Brutus Monroe blog featuring a product or technique of the week!, all the Design Team works very hard to share great inspiration with you!! You can find the hop HERE.   This week we are showcasing  "Surface Sprays".  There are so many things you can do with this Sprays but today I will be focusing on how to create an easy background.


CARD DETAILS:

For my card today, I wanted to create an easy galaxy background.  To do this front panel I sprayed a couple of times the OZ Surface Spray into Premium Gloss Stock.  I mix this color with other two for a variation of color.  I then die cut lots of stars from that sprayed panel. I die cut more stars from Glitter Cardstock and I inlay all the stars on this panel.


I adhere the sprayed panel to a black card base to make the stars pop!

 

To continue with the galaxy theme I stamped and color one of my favorite girls from the "When I grow up collection"... I adhere this adorable Astronaut to the card and I added a sentiment on a flag banner.

Out of This World Reveal Wheel!

Hello everyone Waleska here, thank you so much for stopping by for my weekly blog, today with a new, interactive and fun card.  If you follow me you already know I am a big, huge Lawn Fawn Fan... This recent release in my opinion was one of the best.  One of my absolute favorite was the Reveal Wheel Die Set... this die is a total must have in your die arsenal... It is so easy to ensemble and so fun to make cards...


CARD DETAILS:

To start my card I die cut three of the main pieces with white cardstock.  I wanted to use the 
Beam Me Up stamp set to create a galaxy scene so I first place the spaceship where I wanted the reveal wheel to rotate and drew with a pencil around it to know where to cut the space window for the aliens to be.  After I cut the window I trace on the rotating wheel three times the window to know where to stamp the cute aliens.  After this I started creating the galaxy on the front panel with Oxide Inks Seedless PreservesBlueprint Sketch and Black Soot, I used lots of water and some little star sequins to create the galaxy.


After the background was completed I started the assembly of the card,  I stamped other images from the set to create a scene, where the alien dad is at the galaxy spaceship stop to leave his son who is going on a field trip to the earth.  The light from the spaceship was made with tracing paper that I colored with a yellow marker.  I used black cardstock for the card base as well as for the sentiment.  


Every time you turn the wheel a different Alien shows on the spaceship window...  This card was so much fun to make... look on your stamps and dies for other fun ideas to use the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel... I guarantee you will have a blast creating one of this.
