A Nice Cuppa and my first Brusho….
I am excitedly getting ready for an Open House this weekend. We will be making cards, showing items from the Annual Catalog, Occasions Catalog, and Sale-A-Bration Brochure. There will be door prizes. And the Spring card class seclude will be available. (discounts will be available for spring classes)
Today’s card is all about my favorite stamp set from the Occasions Catalog. A Nice Cuppa just makes me smile. I love to have my morning coffee and my afternoon tea. Not to mention that I have spent many a years working at a “coffee shop” So, anything that has to do with coffee and tea I am all about.
This stamp set is also available in a bundle. It is bundled with the Cups and Kettle Framelits. Anytime that Stampin’ Up! bundles items it is an instant 15% savings!!!!
Over the weekend I was working with Brusho. Brusho is this wonderful type of crystal watercolor. Because it is granulated you can sprinkle it out to make lots of cool effect. I am new to Brusho , so I was practicing what I have seen others do with Brusho. And I will have to say. It is pretty cool stuff!!!
A few tips:
- The background is watercolor paper with Turquoise Brusho and Lemon Brusho. Just sprinkle two colors on paper. Then Sprites. Watch the magic happen. Don’t mess with it too much.
- The tea cups are stamped in Basic Gray…I had just reinked the stamp pad so it came out really dark.
- the Watermelon Wonder panel really makes the card stand out. The reddish pink is opposite green on the color wheel. So they make each other shine!
- Don’t forget the inside. I used a small strip of the watercolor background for the bottom of the card inside. Then at the top I stamped the sentiment. This gives me plenty of room to write a little note.
Here is the supply list: (Brusho is available at Dick Blick)
