Thinking About You Card with A Background Stamp

Hey, everyone! Today I am sharing how I used the Brutus Monroe Rose Garden background stamp on a card. Sometimes background stamps can be intimidating, especially when trying to figure out how to use them on cards. So I thought I would share one of my favorite ways to use background stamps.


I first cut a piece of Alabaster Cardstock a little bigger than 4" x 6" so I knew the stamp would fit the cardstock piece. Then using a dauber I randomly started blending some Brutus Monroe Heather Surface Ink into the cardstock but leaving some areas white. In the white areas, I then blended in some Brutus Monroe Sea Surface Ink until I covered the entire piece of cardstock.


Then I stamped the Brutus Monroe Rose Garden stamp with some Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink and embossed it with Alabaster Ultra Fine Embossing Powder. Cut down my cardstock piece to the size of the background stamp and cut it into equal sized strips and adhered to a card base with dimensional foam tape.


I then stamped the "you" stamp from the Brutus Monroe Butterfly Sentiment Stamp Set with the Embossing Ink and embossed it with Gilded Ultra Fine Embossing Powder and die cut it out. Then stamped the "Thinking About" sentiment with the Sea Surface Ink. Adhered the sentiments to the front of my card with dimensional foam tape and added a few sequins.

Pretty In Pink Mixed Media Canvas

Hello, everyone! I love adding different mediums with no real plan and ending up with something beautiful. Fireworks! Sprays from Imagine gave me the pretty in pink look I was going for.


In my video below I share exactly how I created this mixed media canvas.

Happy Mail Card

As many know I love to create mixed media type projects but sometimes it is nice to create a clean and simple card too. This card came about because I was playing around with a scrap piece of Rinea Foil and ended up making a tiny envelope. Now that I have a cute little envelope I have to use it, right? So I made five more little envelopes and came up with this......


Click the video below for a quick tutorial on how I made these envelopes.

Once I had six little envelopes made I adhered them to the front of a card base and stamped the "Happy Mail" sentiment with a Brutus Monroe stamp.
