Up, Up and Away

April 5, 2019

Today’s card features a product I haven’t used in a while – Brusho.  I wanted to create a card using the balloons from the Lift Me Up stamp set.  I sprinkled a small amount of the Prussian Blue Brusho onto Shimmer Paper and spritzed it with water.  I used a paper towel to soak up some of the water and then left the paper to dry.  Once it was dry I attached the Shimmer Paper to scored and folded Blueberry Bushell card.  I stamped two of the small balloons from the Lift Me Up stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Pool Party ink and cut them out using the co-ordinating Up & Away Thinlits Dies.  I attached one balloon to the top left corner of the Brusho piece and one to the right hand side just above the middle.  I stamped the large balloon from the Lift Me Up stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Bermuda Bay ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Up and Away Thinlits Die.  The large balloon is attached to the card front partially covering the bottom of the small balloon on the right hand side of the card front.  I cut Blueberry Bushell card using the large detailed balloon from the Up and Away Thinlits Dies.  I cut the backing pieces for the balloon from Pool Party card and attached them to the back of the detailed balloon die cut.  The detailed balloon is attached to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the greeting from the Lift Me Up stamp set onto Whisper White card using Blueberry Bushell ink.  I attached a narrow strip of Blueberry Bushell card behind one long edge before attaching the greeting to the card front.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the large balloon from the Lift Me Up stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using Bermuda Bay ink.  I covered the stamped balloon with a post-it-note mask and then stamped the small balloon twice using Pool Party ink so that the images would sit partially on top of the large balloon.  I removed the post-it-note mask and attached the stamped panel to the inside of the card.

I’m pretty happy with the way this card turned out.  I think I am going to have to play some more with my Brusho.

Bye for now,

Kris
