Stampin’ Up! Video: Working with Brusho

View the Stampin’ Up! Working with Brusho video by clicking above.

Brusho is made up of watercolor ink crystals — Sprinkle them directly on water-washed paper and watch the colors burst!  Stampin’ Up! offers Watercolor Paper #122959 or Shimmery White card stock #101910 that are the perfect “canvas” for this. 

Each Brusho package includes 5 pots, 1 each of 5 colors: Brilliant Red, Gamboge (orange), Moss Green, Prussian Blue, & Yellow.

TIP:  Use a push pin to poke a few holes in the cover and dispense like a salt shaker.   Keep the push pin in place when you are not using.  Don’t remove the top or you’ll end up with a colorful mess!

Bold Butterfly Thank You Card

Stampin Up Butterflies Thinlits Dies butterfly thank you card ideas - Mary Fish StampinUp

I adore the incredible detail of this bold butterfly thank you card created with the Stampin’ Up! Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  It’s perfect timing for spring!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Adhere a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Basic Gray card stock with Stampin’ Dimensionals to a Basic Gray standard card base (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″).  Matching layers look rich and so dapper in gray!

Crop the butterfly from Very Vanilla card stock using the largest die in the Butterflies Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  I highly recommend using the Precision Base Plate (roll back and forth thru the big shot 3 times) for crisp cutting of detailed dies and Big Shot Brush for nudging out the little bits!

Using a Glue Dot, adhere a ribbon bow created with Stampin’ Up! Calypso Coral 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon.  Adhere butterfly with a Glue Dot to card base.

Stamp “thank you” (Eclectic Expressions Stamp Set) in Basic Gray Ink on Calypso Coral card stock measuring 3/4″ high and cropped with a Banner Triple Punch (instant flagged end) to 3″ long.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
