Glittering Peace

2018-09-02 15.06.29
Welcome!  I’m sharing another project today using Brutus Monroe’s Glitter stock!  Have you seen all the gorgeous colors we have?!  Today’s card is made with Gilded and Scarlet and was super easy!  I die-cut Altenew’s Layered Floral Cover die (Plate A) from the Scarlet glitter stock then cut Plate B from a piece of white cardstock.

I attached the floral dies to a white base card, then die-cut Peace from Gilded Glitter stock and adhered it to a strip of vellum.

The last step was to attach the vellum to the card panel, using Thermoweb’s Sticky Tape Runner.  See?!  How easy was that?!  You’ll find more Glitter stock cards and projects made by the Inspiration Team on Brutus Monroe’s blog, so have a look!  And check out the array of colored Glitter stock on the website!

Altenew Meets Brutus Monroe!

  I love this pairing of Altenew’s Layered Floral Cover die with the Drybrush Foil Transfer Sheet from Brutus Monroe! Have you heard about the newest collaboration between Deco Foil and Brutus Monroe?!  A custom line of foils is now available and I used one of them for my card today!  I’m waiting for an Amazon order of a pretty inexpensive laminator to arrive, so in the meantime, I kept this project simple! To create this card, I first cut a sheet of the foil to fit my A2 card base and attached it with adhesive.  I then ran a piece of white cardstock and the bottom layer of the Floral Cover die through my Cuttlebug, and then a piece of black with the top layer of the die.  (The lighting in my photo makes the white cardstock have a pink tinge, but it’s crisp white in real life!)

After I cut the two coordinating dies, I simply attached the white layer to the foil then glued the black layer over it.  How easy was that?!  My sentiment is from Brutus Monroe’s elegant set called Sharon’s Script and I heat-embossed it in black onto a strip of white cardstock, trimmed the end and lifted it with a strip of foam tape.

This was a very simple card to make and I love how the lines on the foil look almost like rain in the background!  There are so many fabulous projects already made by the Inspiration Team so take a look at the blog!  And I hope you’ll take the time to check out all the newly released foils and supplies in stock at the store and online at Brutus Monroe!  I’m eager to stretch myself with these new-to-me products and when that laminator arrives, I’ll find new ways to use them!  Thanks for stopping by today!

More Layered Floral Cover Dies!

These fabulous Layered Floral Cover dies from Altenew are so versatile! And they’re on sale right now!!  For this card, I cut panels of Neenah Index white card stock with both Plate A and Plate B, and then used them as stencils!  How cool is THAT?!  I used Ranger Distress inks in Black Soot, Pumice Stone, Peeled Paint and Worn Lipstick to sponge the color through the “stencils”, creating a quick and easy one-layer card.  I roughed up the edges with my scissors, sponged more Black Soot around the edge and attached it to a layer of white, then the base card of white.  I’m not sure who makes the sentiment I used, but I stamped it onto a strip of vellum with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then attached it with two green brads.  I really love how this turned out!  🙂

In much the same manner, I created this card using Distress inks in Fired Brick, Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint and Broken China.  So simple to just sponge through the stencils I created with regular weight card stock!  I adhered the panel to a piece of Bazzill white and stamped out an older Stampin Up sentiment on a piece of scrap white and lifted it a little with a piece of fun foam beneath.  I hope you like these cards and if you have the dies, make a stencil and have fun!  🙂

Altenew Layered Floral Cover Dies

Altenew Layered Floral Cover Dies are to die for!!  I’ve had my eye on these for some time now and finally bought them last fall and created my first card with them!  The look is so striking and intricate yet they’re easy to use!  Here’s how I made this: I cut the black layer from Plate A then the second layer from Plate B on regular weight ivory card stock.  Using sponge daubers, I lightly sponged color onto the sections with Ranger Distress inks, Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint.

I then adhered the black layer to the lower layer using Crystal Effects as glue and attached them to a card base of smoky gray.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp’s Bouquet of Thanks set which I stamped onto a scrap of card stock and added two little jewels of green.  Now, how simple is that?!
