Happy Birthday

Hello everyone! I'm on the Brutus Monroe blog today with this birthday card using the current stencil of the month.


I applied the beautiful Orchid Chroma Glaze on a card base over the Elegant Egg stencil, which is the current stencil of the month. Once it was dry, I inked the Aubergine ink over the card stock. This ink color coordinates perfectly with the Orchid Chroma Glaze. Then I die cut the sentiment with the Happy Birthday die on charcoal glitter stock and adhered it on the card base. The charcoal glitter stock works perfectly with many colors, so it's one that I use often! I wanted to use this stencil for non-Easter/Spring cards too!! So I decided to use it this way.

Hello!

Hello everyone!! Today, for the Brutus Monroe blog hop, we are using the Brutus Monroe dies. Here's my card using the stitched star die set and the 'hello' sentiment die set.


I decided to do a multi-shaker card for today. I used the stitched star die set to make the frames. I die cut the 3 star frames and 2 solid stars from the Rogue card stock. Since these frames are pretty thin, I decided to die cut fun foam sheets instead of using foam tape. So I die cut 2 layers of pink fun foam sheets from Dollar Tree and then glued them together with Brutus Monroe glue. I adhered die cut acetate sheet on this foam frame and then adhered the card stock layer on top. I put some mixed pink sequins (from Dollar Tree) and adhered the shaker frames with acetates on top. Once I had all the 3 shaker elements glued down, I worked on the 2 solid stars. I used the same foam layers for the solid stars too.  Then, I die cut the sentiment "hello" using the Hello Die from the sterling glitter stock. I adhered the sentiment on the parts only where it touches the stars, so that it has a floating look. Doesn't that look cool!
