Brutus Monroe Hop - April Subscription Items
Hello crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by my blog! It's Wednesday which means a Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team blog hop! Today we're sharing projects made with some of the subscription items. I chose to use the cute stamp of the month! It's this adorable whimsical birthday cake.
For this card, I also used the aqua pigment of the month, Buttercup, as well as the aqua pigment from last month, Rhubarb. I faded the Rhubarb up into the Buttercup on some aqua pigment paper, so it did take on a more orange tone. By itself it's more yellow. Then I heat embossed one of the laser cut mandalas with Gilded Sparkle EP and attached it over the panel with glue, and placed a heavy book over it while it dried. I stamped the cake in Raven detail in and colored it with my Zig markers. I first cut the image and then heat embossed the sentiments in Gilded. I trimmed the sides off the mandala, and popped the cake up in the center with foam tape. I trimmed the sentiment pieces down into banner shapes and glued them on.
For the second project, I used the Arrow stencil with DecoFoil gel and the purple sketch foil to create a background. I cut it down to a tag shape and set it aside. I painted a piece of scrap aqua pigment paper with the new "Grape" metallic aqua pigment, and dried it with a heat tool. I die cut the circle shape and glued it to the tag front. I stamped the cake three times with Raven detail ink, and colored them with Zig markers.
Then I fussy cut each layer, and built them up with different thickness of foam tape. I used the thickest, the Brutus Monroe foam tape for the bottom layer, then a thinner mounting tape for the middle layer. I glued the finished dimensional cake onto the circle.
