Blog Hop de Brutus Monroe - Glitter Glaze - español

Image
¡Hola amigos! Bienvenidos a mi primera entrada en español. Esta entrada se enfoque en el producto de Brutus Monroe que se llama ¨Glitter Glaze¨. Si lo traduces exactamente, sería ¨Vidriado de Brillo¨, y es un tipo de pasta de brillo. El uso más común es con plantillas. Cuando se seca, la pasta es transparente y lo único que se ve es el brillo. Brutus Monroe ofrece un club de suscripción mensual que cuesta 8 dólares al mes. ¡Recibes un color exclusivo directo a tu puerta! También te suscribes, recibes un descuento en la mayoría de los otros productos en la tienda en línea de Brutus Monroe.

Fue super difícil escoger los proyectos para esta entrada, porque ¡tengo un montón de fondos hechos con glitter glaze! La primera tarjeta está hecha con los colores ¨Berry¨ y ¨Glacier¨. 

Cuando preparo un fondo con varios colores, y quiero un gradiente suave, suelo agarrar un poco de cada color y los mezclo para crear un tono transicional. Usé la plantilla ¨Snowflake¨ y empecé a extender la pasta Berry…

Brutus Monroe Hop - Glitter Glaze!

Hi crafty friends!

I had the hardest time choosing what projects to use for this hop, which showcases the Brutus Monroe glitter glaze! I have a TON of projects with it, and I really really love it. I own all the colors, and I subscribe to their glitter glaze of the month club as well. I can't get enough! The glitter glaze of the month club is 8.00 shipped, and you'll get an exclusive color sent straight to your door every month!



For the first project, I used the colors Berry and Glacier, which is the November glitter glaze color of the month! It's a really gorgeous icy blue color. To make the ombre background, I take a little scoop of each color and mix it together on my glass mat to make a transitional color. This helps create a smoother flow between colors and no obvious lines. I taped my Snowflake stencil to the Alabaster cardstock panel using purple tape, and began to spread the darkest color Berry along the bottom. I switch…

Brutus Monroe Hop - Honey, I SHRUNK the cards!

Image
Good morning crafty friends! This week's blog hop features the Brutus Monroe shrink film! Every stop on the hop has some fun ideas for shrink film use. I also used it a while back to make Halloween hair bows for my girls. You can check that post out by clicking here.


Both projects today use the "Sprinkled with Love" stamp set. It's so cute! Ice cream is my favorite food. For this card, I stamped the images onto the shrink film using Raven detail ink. Since you can't heat set the ink, and it is a slick surface, I left it overnight to dry, just to be sure it would dry completely. I colored the images the next day with Copic markers. Keep in mind that the colors deepen as they shrink down, so it might look darker than the actual marker you color with. You can also color on the pieces after they have shrunk down! I fussy cut the images and then used my heat tool to shrink them all down. After this, I stamped the images onto aqua pigment paper with Raven detail ink, a…

Brutus Monroe Hop: Shake It Up!

Hi crafty friends! Thanks for hopping along with the Brutus Monroe inspiration team for our shaker card theme! I love shaker cards. Once you get the hang of it, they are not too difficult, and they always wow the recipient! The new Brutus Monroe foam tape is nice and thick, so it leaves a lot of room for your shaker elements to move around.



My card for this hop has the trifecta of shine: glitter glaze, foiling and heat embossing! I started out with a piece of plain Alabaster cardstock, and stenciled snowflakes all over it with Gold Glitter Glaze. I did let that dry overnight, since I was planning to run it through my die cutting machine. The last time I got a little impatient to die cut something with glitter glaze, it was still tacky and got all over my cutting plates! But if you can hold out an hour or so it should be completely fine.
I cut down one of the "loopy" clear toner sheets and ran it through my Minc machine with some Therm-o-Web Champagne foil. I have been watchi…

Brutus Monroe Stamp of the Month - November

Image
Hey crafty friends! I'm here today sharing a card with the hilarious stamp from the Stamp of the Month Club from Brutus Monroe. This protesting turkey cracks me up! The stamp of the month club is really cool; you will receive a 2x3 stamp set for only $5 which includes your shipping and handling! The stamp set is designed each month by Christopher and will be shipped out to you by the 15th of the month (excluding holidays, in the event of a holiday falling on shipment day the stamp will ship on the next business day)



This card background is made with one of the free stencil SVG files on the Brutus Monroe website. To make the stencil, I laminated a piece of plain white printer paper and then used my Cricut to cut the leaf stencil out. It worked perfectly! I used glitter glaze in the colors "Gilded", "Pumpkin" and "Tangerine" on the stencil to make the background. The Berry Twig Leaf die was cut from several shades of brown cardstock, and layered togethe…
