Die Cutting Technique

Hello Friends Welcome back for another Wednesday Project...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!   The Design Team works very hard to share great inspiration with you!! You can find the hop HERE.   This week we are sharing Die Cutting Techniques.   Today I will be focusing on a very fun fold card design.


CARD DETAILS:

Coordinating Dies and stamps can be used in many different ways, for today's card I created a window trifold card.  I started by cutting two A2 cards and glue them together.  I then ink blend the three panels, I used the coordinating die of this set to cut a window on the front and second panel, I used the first cut panel to cut the second flap by putting the die inside the first panel to fit like a puzzle into the other card so they can be in the exact same spot on the card.


I then emboss the City Sidewalks Orlando with Metallic Embossing Powder Sterling, and adhere the globe to the last card panel.


This is the front of the card, I added some little star sequins for more bling and I also added a sentiment banner with the words Sending love.



The second panel is exactly like the first one I change the color and the sentiment banner to say "From"....




And for the last panel I adhere the Snow globe with foam dots to the last panel.

Color Challenge!!!

Hello Friends Welcome back for another Wednesday Project...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!, the Design Team works very hard to share great inspiration with you!! You can find the hop HERE.   This week we are having a color challenge.  I was very inspired by this combo and I really loved this combination of colors.



CARD DETAILS:

To create this card I started by planning my background... I wanted to create a rainy background, to do that I used Oz Surface ink, to make this rainy day I simply swipe the ink cube across the card, leaving white spots in some areas that I filled with the raindrops stamp on this set.


Here is a closer look to the background, I used Oz Surface ink to stamp the raindrops.


After I finished the background I colored this funky cat inspired on the colors from the challenge.  To create more interest on my card I die cut three clounds in different sizes and adhere them to go along with the sentiment.  To finish this card I glue small gray raindrops and stamped the sentiment.


 Join us on this fun color challenge using the hashtag #brutusmonroecolorchallenge and share your creations on social media, we love to see what you create....

Envelope Art!

Hello Friends Welcome back for another Wednesday Project...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!   The Design Team works very hard to share great inspiration for you!! You can find the hop HERE.   This week we are sharing some "Envelope Art"inspiration.  For today´s project I used Raven Embossing powder and Brutus Monroe Cabbage cardstock to create this envelope.


CARD DETAILS:

I started making the envelope with an Envelope Punch Board, I used Brutus Monroe Cabbage cardstock to create this envelope.  With the envelope open, I started stamping in the corners the beautiful Flourishes that come in the Create a Cameo set with Brutus Monroe Embossing ink.  I wanted an elegant look to this envelope so I used Raven Embossing Ink for all the stamping.


I then stamped the girl cameo, leaving space to stamp the address on the envelope.  I splatter gold watercolor to the front of the stamped piece for more interest to this design.  I stamped the name and address and again I used Raven Embossing ink to unify the design.


I love he raised look of the embossing powder on the envelope, you can use any embossing powder with this idea!!! 


I hope you like this elegant idea to create Evelope Art with embossing powders. Remember also, There are lots of new products at the shop... go grab them before it is too late!!!!

It is a Pijama Party!!! Good Bye to CDD...

Hello CDD Fans Waleska here from craftinglovew, to share with you my last post as a Design Team Member... The theme for this week is "Not a card project" so I got creative inspired on the coming Pijama Party my daughter will be having this Friday!! She loves trolls, I used the Twinkle Twinkle stamp set, so she was thrilled with this little details for her party!!!  It is so fun to craft and even though I love making cards it is so refreshing to do different projects too...



PROJECT DETAILS:

To start this projects I cut a strip of white cardstock 16 x 25 cms to create the milk wrap, I used oxide inks to create the night sky in colors Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves and Black Soot.  To finish the night look I did some splashes with white paint to be the starts.  I adhere the cute girl troll in her pijamas in the center... (so adorable!!!!)



To create the box I used the Treat Bag Die, I cut the two pieces to ensemble the treat bag, and masked around the front of the bag to ink only the front.  I used the same colors I mention before to create the night sky and added white splashes and cute troll.  I am thinking on putting the names of my daughter´s friends on a small tag attached to the bag. What do you think??


I am also thinking on giving them my daughter´s favorite cookies and give them some chocolates inside the treat bag. Sweet enough???


I hope I inspire you to create some cute accesories for your parties!!!! I had the best time on the CDD Team, I learned a lot and made some amazing friends!!! Take care thank you so much for all your kindness during my time as a DT Member!!! 

Keep on Crafting!!!

Love,

Lots of Sentiments

Hello Friends Welcome back for another Wednesday Project...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 sharing what we called "Sentiment Cards".   Today I will be focusing on the beautiful Brutus Monroe "Super Sentimental stamp set.


Card Details:

To create this cards I repeatedly stamped the same sentiment on a front white panel with the same color of ink.  To accentuate the sentiment I use black letters and a black Raven card base!!   This set has lots of different sentiments so you can make this card design for many occasions and have many cards on hand when needed.




For this second design I made a heart mask and stamped inside the shape to create this fun word pattern inside the heart and added the black letters for a focal point on the card.


 

I hope you like this quick and easy cards and can give this idea a try!! Remember the awesome sale at the shop with amazing prizes on lots of products!!!

Sea You Soon! Good Bye to the Drive by Crafts Design Team...


Hello Friends Waleska here from craftinglovew with my last post on the Drive by Crafts Design Team.  Time definetely flies when you are having fun!!! I loved my time on this team and sharing with you my ideas!!! For my last card of course I wanted to create a scene with some of my favorite Lawn Fawn sets from all time, some old and some new!! This long card is very colorful and shows lots of different characters and must haves if you are like me and enjoy making cute cards.



CARD DETAILS:

I started with the card base which is a letter size sheet fold in half, I cut 2 inches so it can fit inside a long business envelope.  I cut different sizes of water waves and colored them with oxide inks in colors: Faded Jeans, Peacoack Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean.  For the little island I used Kraft Cardstock, I splashed all the waves with water for a realistic water look. 


For the sky I used Squeezed Lemonade and Carved Pumpking Oxide Inks.  I planned my scene from top to bottom, my inspiration was an image I found of the ocean with lots and lots of little fishes.  I started stamping and coloring all the characters I wanted to use and placing them on the card without adhering them.  I build this big scene little by little and I tried to use kind of the same colors for a harmonic feel.


After I knew exactly where I wanted all my images I started adhering them to my card, with glue and some with 3D foam.  I used a white gel pen to draw attention to some parts of the images and some glitter glue for sparkle.  I finally stamped the sentiment with black ink.


I hope I inspire you to mix and match some of your stamp sets with this card!!!! I had the best time on the Drive by Crafts Team, I learned a lot and made some great friends!!! Take care and thank you so much for all your kindness during my time as a DT Member!!! 

Keep on Crafting!!!

Love,
