LET’S CELEBRATE

I’m using the Amazing You stamp set and matching Celebrate You Thinlits Dies for today’s card.  Both of these excellent products are available as a FREE choice in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

You can find them on pages 16 & 17 along with some amazing samples to give you more inspiration.

Note that I used three colours for the “celebrate”!  The entire word was cut out with Powder Pink, Calypso Coral and Gold Foil.  Then I cut the Gold Foil and Calypso Coral into pieces and glued each piece over the main part using our fabulous Liquid Multipurpose Glue.

NEED A BIRTHDAY CARD?

Do you need a birthday card?  I created this one with the hilarious Birthday Wit stamp set and a little Brusho®Crystal Colour!

I was really excited to see that Stampin’ Up! has added the Brusho®Crystal Colour to their line-up and couldn’t wait to give it a try.  I started out with a simple application for the background of that very funny greeting!

TIP:  The very first thing you should do is poke about 2-3 holes in the lid of each container to avoid ending up with those tiny crystals all over your working space.

Then, you can cover them with a small piece of tape to keep them from “escaping”.

It is recommended that you use Shimmery White or Watercolour Paper for this technique.  Apply a few drops of water, sprinkle the crystals and then use an Aqua Painter to spread them around.  Let it dry and then stamp the image over top.  Presto, a really great, instant background!

Here’s a video showing a few ideas for using Brusho®Crystal Colour.

Have fun with this and Happy Stamping!
