Brusho Butterfly card - new Stampin' Up catalogs




Alert!!  New Stampin' Up catalogs:  Occasions and Sale-A-Bration!!  



You can see them in my online store - I used products from them for my brusho butterfly card I posted earlier this week:


These are the Stampin' Up items I used:

Beautiful Day stamp set  

Brusho (red and blue)  I just spritzed water on watercolor paper, then dropped the brusho on, or blended the brusho with an aqua painter


Picture Perfect Party designer paper

I also used a large pearl, white embossing powder and crochet trim.


Since I made this card for a swap, I had to make a total of 8 cards - with the brusho each card turned out different!  Here are the cards; which ones do you like?  It was sooo fun playing with brusho, but it was a little messy lol


I embossed the butterfly on the watercolor paper in white first, then shook the brusho on - first the red and then the blue.









The heavier watercolor paper was perfect for using brusho; I used the heat embosser to help dry the ink and flatten the paper somewhat.


Stampin' Up has a video on the brusho that you can view on their site, as well as videos on some of the new products, so be sure you check them out.  Here are a couple more projects that Stampin' Up shared:

Christmas Eve decorations


Hope you are ready for Christmas, since it is tomorrow!  Fortunately for me, there are a few stores around here that are open 24/7, so I will be heading out to grab a couple more things lol, then come back and wrap gifts....I already sent out some to my sons and mother - here is the cute angel popsicle sticks ornament that I sent to my mom.  Wish I had gotten one for myself, but settled for taking pictures of it...


We also put up our outside lights and decorations - our theme is dogs, of course!  There are 2 white dogs, a red dog, and a Snoopy.





Did you put up outside decorations this year, and/or inside ones?  BTW, there a few new items in the Stampin' Up clearance rack - quantities are limited.

Have a great Christmas Eve and Christmas day!!

Christmas blog hop - a calendar project


The countdown to Christmas has started…Welcome to this month’s blog hop with Di's Country Inkers!  Our blog hop theme this month is Christmas/New Years. 

Since I make mini-calendars to enclose with my Christmas cards to my family, I wanted to share that with you...here is my purse calendar for this year:

 



Here is a picture of what the back of the calendar looks like:
  


These are the Stampin’ Up products I used:
Scallop tag topper punch (the tag is 2-1/8” x 3-1/4” & folded over at 2-1/8” for flap)
Layering ovals framelits (handle)
Quilted Christmas designer paper 6 x 6
Holly berry builder punch (small bow)
Real red cardstock (back 2-1/8” x 2”)
Rhinestone

The small self-sticking calendar is from Vippies – at www.vippies.com you can find the tutorial I basically used for my purse calendar.  Now I just have to make more of these calendars for my cards ASAP - Good thing they are easy!  I'll just make them up while I watch one of the many Christmas shows on television right now LOL.

You can get all of the Stampin’ Up products I used in my online store:  http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/marynoble/
