Today’s card features two of my favorite NEW Occasions products: the Beautiful Day stamp set and Brusho Crystal Color watercolor crystals!
The new Beautiful Day stamp set features five rubber stamps, including a large butterfly, a large flower, two sentiments, and an accent stamp. It’s available in both wood mount and clear mount, and will be available to order starting January 3rd! For this card, I used the flower stamp, along with a sentiment from a different set called Petal Palette (also a new Occasions product!) Here’s a peek at the full Beautiful Day set:
To start, I heat embossed the flower in white embossing powder on watercolor paper. I then applied the Brusho, and colored with an Aquapainter to get the bright, bold colors! (I am not going to talk too much about the Brusho today, as I plan to do a whole post about it tomorrow. I hope you’ll check back for the details then!) But I will say this: it is SUCH a fun product to use! If you love watercoloring, or love how watercoloring looks on projects, you are definitely going to want to give it a try!
Here’s a peek at the Brusho packaging:
Don’t let the plain black and white packaging fool you! There’s a whole bunch of color in that unassuming little box!
Once the flower was colored and dry, I layered the top layer of the card with Real Red cardstock on a Basic Black base, stamped the sentiment from Petal Palette in black, and added some leaves in Lemon Lime Twist. (I stamped and punched the leaves with the Painted Harvest Bundle, and used Versamark ink on the veins of the leaves, just to add a hint of detail.) The flower was fussy cut with Paper Snips, and applied to the card with Dimensionals, so it pops off the card a bit and really stands out!
Tomorrow’s post will be all about Brusho! Hope you’ll check back to learn more about this new product and how fun it can be to use! Have a great day!
