Merry & Bright Lights

Hello everyone!! Today on the Brutus Monroe blog, we are masking!! Here's what I made for today:


I started by stamping the bulb from this month's stamp club of the month with Sugar Cone ink and colored them with Copics and Stylefile markers. Then I cut out a mask using the Brutus Monroe masking paper, masked each bulb and added a soft 'glow' around them using Cabbage, Sea, Phonebook and Rogue for green, blue, yellow and red respectively! As much as I love coloring with alcohol markers, for the soft glow, I'd still prefer the surface inks. I stamped the sentiment with black Raven ink. I drew the wires with black Stylefile marker.


How do you like my card today? Please do let me know in the comments below. Here's our hop order for today:

Snowflake Birthday

Hello everyone!! I'm on the Brutus Monroe blog today with a beautiful birthday card, that I made for my daughter who just turned 5!


I started by lightly inking an A2 card base with Sea surface ink over the Snowflakes stencil. For the shaker frame, I die cut the Sterling glitter stock with the Snowflakes Border die. For the other 3 sides of the frame, I cut it on my paper trimmer. I also die cut the sentiment "Happy Birthday" using the Happy Birthday Die. Then I assembled the shaker using foam tape, acetate panel and sequins from my stash. I added the glitter frame and sentiment on the acetate panel. 


My daughter loved this card! What do you think? Please do let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!
