Brutus Monroe Hop - Favorite Product

Image
Hello crafty friends! Thanks for joining me today on my blog. It's another Wednesday blog hop for the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team, and the theme this week is "Favorite Products"! I had a hard time choosing a favorite...there are so many fun products. My first Brutus Monroe love was the embossing powders, but in the last year, I think I've enjoyed the glitter glaze the most! I've created two cards using the glitter glaze to share with you. One of the cool things about glitter glaze is that the backgrounds don't need much added to them. Both cards have such a bold, sparkly background that all I had to do was put a sentiment on and call it a day!



For this first card, I used the colors Lilac, Sugar Plum, Grape and Raspberry. Lilac and Plum Perfect are colors from the Glitter Glaze of the Month subscription. I really enjoy the subscription because the lighter or darker shades that arrive often help me make a pretty ombre effect when combined with the existing c…

Brutus Monroe Blog Hop - Ornaments

Image
Hello crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Today is another Wednesday hop day for the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team, and our theme is ornaments. I made a shaker ornament with the "Oh Deer" stamp set.


This is one of my favorite holiday stamp sets! The deer and their hilarious facial expressions crack me up! I stamped the images in Raven detail ink, and used masking fluid to give the impression the the one that's floating away was behind the others. I masked them all off and used Cornflower surface ink to blend the sky in the background. Once the masking was off, I used Alabaster EP to heat emboss snowflakes in the sky. Using alcohol markers, I colored the deer, and used a white gel pen for the spots on the deer and some extra snowy dots in the sky.


I used one of the chipboard picture frames and embossed 3 layers of alabaster EP to make the frame white. I adhered clear plastic to the back of the window, and lined it with foam tape. I sprinkled some of the Blue …

Brutus Monroe Blog Hop - Fall / Autumn

Image
Hello crafty friends! Welcome to another blog hop Wednesday for the Brutus Monroe Inspiration team. This week the theme is Fall/Autumn, and I chose to use the wreath and sentiment from the "Autumn Essentials" stamp set in all warm neutral brown tones.



I started by blending some "Suede" surface ink around the edge of Lunch Bag cardstock. I heat embossed the wreath from the stamp set using the "Coffee Grounds" embossing powder, which is a rich dark brown. I then heat embossed the sentiment onto a scrap of Lunch Bag cardstock, and used a circle die to cut it out. I inked the edges of the circle with "Suede" surface ink as well, and popped it up in the middle with foam tape. I glued the whole panel onto a piece of the wood circle cardstock from the "Winter Cabin" pack to finish it off.


Now that Halloween is over, it's time for all the fall things! Have you made any autumn cards or decor yet?
