Ink It Stamp It Blog Hop - Technique - Beautiful Brusho's


Hello all 😉
Welcome back to my blog.
Today I myself and the rest of the Ink It Stamp It DT are sharing some Techniques with you.

For those visiting my blog for the very first time, my name is Kim Oliver and I live in Tasmania.

 To continue moving through the hop today I have towards the end of this post a list of names. Please click the name directly after mine to keep seeing more gorgeous ideas and techniques.

I have chosen to give the Brusho's a bit of a whirl today. 
WOW They are really interesting to work with.
I have also supplied the Stampin Up! video on 'HOW TO APPLY' for the Brusho's.

Here is the Video



AND
Here is my card

Beautiful Day

I haven't added a sentiment as yet. 
Not even sure I will.
 What do you think?



I got my inspiration for the gold on the back ground from some new DSP that is available from the 2018 Occasions catalogue. It has brushed on gold over brushed colours and looks amazing.

I have made up a picture tutorial of the steps I used to create my butterfly..

Below is an a progress shot plus a peak of another card I was working on at the same time. This card was blogged a couple of days ago. 
You can see that card HERE.

 There is also another new product that was used also pictured below called Petal Pair textured embossing folders.

Can you see what I have done with the embossing folders?

I finished of my card by adding pearls to the embossed background and gold thread to the middle of the butterfly.

I am participating today with the Fabulous Stamin' Dreams DT for a blog hop all about 

L💗VE.

I have a complete list of all hop participants closer to the end of this post.


I am using the gorgeous new Cake Soirée suite along with the Sweet and Sassy Framelits to create a gorgeous Wedding/Engagement style card.

Cake Soirée is available from the NEW 2018 Occasion's Catalogue on page 12.
You can purchase the bundle and save 10%  PLUS just by purchasing the bundle you automatically earn a FREE item from the SALE-A-BRATION catalogue!
HOW AWESOME IS THAT!

CELEBRATE

#KOCreationscards #Weddings #Engagements #Cakesoirée #Celebrate #Love #Cardmaking #Stampinup

I have used the Cake Soirée suite to create my card. The suite includes the Stamp & Thinlits bundle, matching ribbon, Stunning Designer Series Paper. 
It also includes a number of other items and embellishments (now shown on my card)
That's one of the things I adore about Stampin' Up. Things are made to work together!

Angled View


#KOCreationscards #Weddings #Engagements #Cakesoirée #Celebrate #Love #Cardmaking #Stampinup

This card was created using a scrap piece of the Berry Burst floral DSP that was left when I was creating during December. You can see that card HERE.

The cake itself has been fussy cut from the DSP . I have overlaid a piece of vellum with a heart shape over the DSP. This has been accentuated with a heart frame in silver foil.
I have then bought the Berry Burst colour to the front my adding two Berry Burst hearts and the silver trimmed ribbon.

This card would be perfect for a Wedding, Engagement or even a Birthday!

SSBH - Sale-A-Bration - Monochrome Heartfelt Blooms

No automatic alt text available. 

Hello everyone 😊
Welcome to the 2018 Stampin' Sunday Blog Hop.
Our theme this month is Sale-A-Bration!
What an awesome way to kick of the New Year!

I have a full list of our hop participants closer to the end of this post.


Here are my cards.

MONOCHROME HEARTFELT BLOOMS


#KOCreationscards #Saleabration #Heartfeltblooms #Cardmaking #Occasionalcards #Monochromecards #Stampinup #Flowers #Wedding #Engagement #Sympathy

For my card projects today I have chosen to use the Heartfelt Blooms stamp that you can earn FREE during SALE-A-BRATION *more info further down.

I chose a monochrome colour scheme of black, grey,white with silver to finish for my first card.

Here is a close up of the layers.

Close Up View

#KOCreationscards #Saleabration #Heartfeltblooms #Cardmaking #Occasionalcards #Monochromecards #Stampinup #Flowers #Wedding #Engagement #Sympathy

I used a few little bits'n'bobs from previous makes to finish this card. 
The vellum heart frame, the sequin trim and the black leaves are all from previous cards.
I have overlaid a sheet of vellum over the DSP in the background. This was done to soften the look of the black polka dots.

LOVE

#KOCreationscards #Saleabration #Heartfeltblooms #Cardmaking #Occasionalcards #Monochromecards #Stampinup #Flowers #Wedding #Engagement #Sympathy
For this card I decided that a splash of colour was needed. I chose to colour one flower image in Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie.
I also went with a mixed metals approach adding metallic sequins to the card front and metallic gold thread behind the focal layers.
This card was created using bits'n'bobs that I had been playing with trying some of my new product out and getting a feel for them.
The vellum overlay on this card has only been stuck firmly down in the centre behind the floral image. This was done to give a loser feel to the overall structure of the card.

*Kim's tip

Have you ever wondered how to apply your vellum so it stays flat and have the glued area barely noticed?
Then I have your solution!
Apply Fast Fuse along the edges of the vellum.
NOTE: When applying always make sure that you have no balled up bits of the glue and that it doesn't double on itself - Those two things will make it visible.

I hope you liked my card projects today.

Crazy Crafters Occasions and Sale-A-Bration inspiration - I Just Love You



Hello and welcome 😊

I am participating with my team today as part of a blog hop showcasing our projects inspired by the 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Brations catalogues.


You are here with Kim Oliver and I will have a  full list of participants closer to the end of this post to enable you to keep moving through the hop.

Here is my card

I Just Love You 


I was inspired today by a set called 'A Good Day'  and it can be found on page 14 of the Occasions catalogue.
 I really adore the mini embroidery hoops that are part of this suite. they remind me of a more romantic time. I think that is why I chose the sentiment 'I Just Love You'
I also used as accessories another suite available in the catalogue called 'Petal Passion'. This can be found on pages 23 and 24.



The So Saffron  doily behind my embroidery hoop has been cut from the Eastern Medallion thinlits.
The sentiment is stamped and die cut using the Petal Palette bundle.

I have added a few sequin to help finish my card and help tie in the sequin trim in the background.

I hope you enjoy my card today.

HEARTFELT

#KOCreationscards #Flowers #Interantionalhighlightstopten #Heartfeltblooms #2018Saleabration #Freestamps #2018occasionscatalogue #Cardmaking #Alloccasionscards


I have chosen to keep my colour scheme from my previous card in the December hop.

Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White and Old Olive.

To create my card I started by looking at some of my bit's and pieces created from previous makes and wondered how I could incorporate them into my design.

 Here is a close up picture showing my bits'n'bobs

#KOCreationscards #Flowers #Interantionalhighlightstopten #Heartfeltblooms #2018Saleabration #Freestamps #2018occasionscatalogue #Cardmaking #Alloccasionscards


The Heartfelt Blooms stamp has been stamped in Smoky Slate. I then coloured the stamped image with my Stampin' Blends.
The sentiment has been done by adding Basic Black to the 'HEARTFELT' word only using a black Stampin' Write marker.

I do hope you like my card contribution today.
I also hope I have inspired you to go through some of your left over bits and put them to good use!

To continue moving through our hop please click the name directly after mine.






I think this style of card would be suitable for so many different occasions.

BEAUTIFUL PEACOCK

#KOCreationscards #2018Saleabration #2018Occasionscatalogue #Freestamps #Stampinup #Cardmaking #Peacocks #Birthdays #Showoffs #Birds #Nature

I kept  my card simple as I wanted to showcase the gorgeous vibrancy of the Brusho's.
I heat embossed the tail/flourish in white before *wetting my paper and sprinkling the brusho's over water. I tipped up the paper to make the colours bleed and fade while I spritzed extra water over the crystals of colour.

I am really impressed with how this finished.

#KOCreationscards #2018Saleabration #2018Occasionscatalogue #Freestamps #Stampinup #Cardmaking #Peacocks #Birthdays #Showoffs #Birds #Nature

For the actual Peacock image I used my Stampin' Write markers to colour the tail then spritzed the colours with water before stamping, this gave the tail area that water colour effect.
Once dry I fussy cut and mounted over my brusho background.

*Kims tip

When applying Brusho's thoroughly wet your area first. TAP GENTLY on your Brusho's as a little powder goes a LONG way! NOTE for this style of application: If you have the Brusho colour fall onto a dry area and then spritz, I find you get colour where it is not wanted. The force of the spritz pushes the powder over the paper. You can see some above and that was me being careful.
