I had fun with this Flying Home Brusho card 2018 Occasions catalog, a little bit of technique & a little bit of whimsy. I loved the Brusho watercolor crystals when I first saw them, however I had never used them. Since I love a spattered imperfect look, so I tried playing with the spritzer as well as the Stampin Up Aquapainter. They actually give a totally different look as I show in the video below!
You can start with an A2 size card base in Calypso Coral. Cut it at 4.25″ x 11″. Score and fold in half at 5.5″. I chose to assemble this card in a landscape orientation so it opens on the right! I stamped the birdhouses twice. Once on my base piece of white cardstock and again on a scrap paper. I colored the houses on the scrap paper and then fussy cut them out. And on the base I only colored the bottoms since I knew I wanted to pop up the houses!
I loved playing with the Brusho crystal colorand look forward to really perfecting my technique! In the mean time, just remember to have fun! I did find that only one small hole was enough. and I used a pushpin to keep in the lid. My favorite look so far has been sprinkling and then spritzing. However, the possibilities are many!! Remember to make your envelope pretty!

I was inspired to make this Happy birthday card using Christmas in the Making stamp set from my friend Libby! In case you couldn’t tell I love cats! They just make me happy! So thinking outside the box with this stamp set makes it useful year round! I have even seen some super cute Halloween cards using this set!
I also love to color and so I was incredibly excited when Stampin’ Up! brought back their line of Stampin’ Blends Alcohol ink markers complete with skin tones, and color lifter! This was so easy to do it qualified as a quick and easy card!
I started with an A2 card base in the Thick White cardstock. Cut this at 8.5″ x 5.5″. Score and fold in half at 4.25″. The Crumb Cake layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″, the DSP layer is cut at 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″, and the Shimmer White layer is 4 3/4″ x 3.5″ . You don’t have to use Shimmery white card stock with Alcohol markers, but I do love the look and blending smoothness! Stamp the Sentiments in Pool Party ink and remember to make your envelope pretty!
