Brusho Class Vintage Leaves

We had so much fun at my recent Brusho class.  It was a three hour afternoon class.  I took the first hour to walk the participants through several techniques.  Then, we had another hour for everyone to play with the techniques they liked best.  The last hour was spent making some of the samples into cards.

This was one of my samples.  I took a piece of watercolor paper that had been colored with Brusho, stamped the leaf in Early Espresso, and cut it with the matching framelit.

Stamps:  Vintage Leaves, Better Together

Cardstock:  Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Watercolor Paper

Ink:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso

Dies:  Leaflets Framelits

Other:  Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Linen Thread

I hope you’ve enjoyed this card.  I have a couple more Brusho samples to show you, so be sure to visit again.

The Vintage Leaves and Leaflets Framelits are retiring, so be sure to get them before the end of the month.



Eastern Palace Class II

Another card from my Eastern Palace class.  This class was so much fun!  I offered it FREE to those who had purchased the Early Release Premiere bundle.  They brought all their supplies and made these projects from start to finish.

Because these colors, the leaf image, and the embossing folder weren’t included in their bundle, I provided some of the supplies for this card.

Stamps:  Eastern Beauty, Vintage Leaves

Cardstock:  Thick Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Old Olive

Inks:  Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Crushed Curry

Dies/Punches:  Eastern Medallion Thinlits, Layering Circles Framelits,  Leaflets Framelits

Other:  Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers, Oh My Stars TIEF

I love sunflowers!  My dad grows them and dries them to feed the birds during the winter.  The cardinals especially like them.

Thanks for visiting, and if you have any questions or comments, please leave me a note below.

October Ds Stamping Team USA Giving Thanks


This is my very first blog hop.  Thank you, Darla Roberts, for inviting me to participate!

What better subject could there be than Giving Thanks?  I have so much to be grateful for, that I couldn’t even begin to count my blessings!

Fall is my very favorite time of year, and I love to watch the leaves turn from green to a rainbow of glorious color!  I hope you enjoy my card.

October Blog Hop5

I started with a base of Chocolate Chip.  The next layer is Very Vanilla.  If you’re wondering which embossing folder I used….surprise!  I took the Stampin’ Score and scored every other line with the cardstock horizontal, then turned it, and (on the same side) scored every other line with the cardstock vertical.  I used the Vintage Leaves stamp set, stamping the leaves in Chocolate Chip, sponging with a combination of Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive inks, then cutting out with the matching framelits.  The greeting is from Lighthearted Leaves, a set that goes with the same framelits!  It’s stamped on a 2″ circle, pierced, then matted onto a Chocolate Chip 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle.  A double linen thread bow was glued to the stems of the leaves, and a few rhinestones were sprinkled on using the Multipurpose Glue.  The leaves and the scallop circle are popped up with dimensionals.  I hope you like it!

All of the supplies used to create this card may be purchased in my Online Store.  If you don’t already have a demonstrator, I’d love to be yours!

Until next time……stay inky, my friends!
