Brusho Floral Statements

Have you  tried Brushos?  There is a really nice selection of Brushos in the Occasions catalog.  These are powdered crystals that react to water, can be painted like watercolor or sprinkled on wet paper.  They are addicting!  I started with the Floral Statements stamp set on water color paper, stamped in Archival Black, and painted the blue rose with the Brushos.  Then I started doing the background by shaking on the Brushos in Green and Yellow.  The mat behind the stamp is also done the same way.  I used Nuvo Drops in Simple White to add some accents.  Hugs, Fran


Building Cages

This new set is Builder Birdcage and it comes with lots of pieces to create all sorts of birdcage scenes.  For this first card I just made a basic cage with one little bird.  The paper is Sweet Sugarplum and the Sweet Sugarplum Designer Series paper.  To make the chain that holds the perch fit on the cage, I used a post it note to cover the top of cage (the chain is long)  Hugs, Fran

Party Pop Up

Party Pop Up 01

Another catalog case using the new Party Pop Up dies.  These easy to use dies make your cards hold a fun surprise.  I used the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack.  It has 48 sheets of cute designs!  That’s a lot of paper 🙂

Party Pop Up 01 inside

Inside is the other die – popping out to celebrate.  That’s a fun card!  Hugs, Fran

Beautiful Ride

Beautiful Ride 01

This is my take on the Beautiful Ride card shown on page 15 in the Occasions Catalog. I used Pacific Point and Pool Party. (I believe the sample is Bermuda Bay and Pool Party – but hey!) I stamped the car in Pacific Point on Pool Party yardstick and added some color using a blender pen.  The suitcases were colored with Stampin Write Markers, fussy cut and adhered to the top of the card.  Hugs, Fran

Suite Sayings Bakers Box

Suite Sayings 01

This is one of my favorite sets in the Occasions Mini catalog – Suite Sayings.  It’s all sentiments and greetings and they are really nice AND pretty fonts.  For this catalog case, I stamped the sentiment and die cut it using Lots of Labels Framelits.  I die cut 2 leaves using the Botanicals Builder Framelits dies and stamped them with the matching Botanical Blooms stamp set.  The color in the center of the tag is done with a sponge dauber, Hello Honey and Cajun Craze ink.  Hugs, Fran
