A Sweet New Year

It’s 2022 and I have a long list of crafty goals. Hopefully many of them will be sweet enough to stick. To kick off this sweet new year, I am sharing my first project for Brutus Monroe’s 2022 Inspiration Team. We are starting the year off on a sweet note with some new Valentine’s products. You can view all those here.

For this card, I used the new “Sweet Candy” stamp set. I started by embossing some of the smaller images on the background with Alabaster Sparkle Embossing Powder. Then I blended Distress Oxide Inks in Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar, and added a bit of Seedless Preserves on the edges. I finished it off by splattering water.

All the images were stamped in Raven Ink and colored with copics. There is also a coordinating die set to go with “Sweet Candy” .

I used Salvaged Patina Distress ink on white cardstock to create a coordinating layer and die cut for the sentiment. The sentiment is also done with Alabaster Sparkle Embossing Powder. I finished it off with some glitter glue and rhinestones for a little extra sparkle.

Don’t forget to checkout all the fun new products at Brutus Monroe and check back next week for more Sweet Inkspiration!

Something spooky this way comes…

Hey gals and ghouls, have you checked out the terrifyingly awesome new fall release at Brutus Monroe? Along with all the gorgeous autumn stamp sets and new fall Chroma Mists, fun and festive papers and creepy Halloween monsters, you will find this adorable set of “Spooky Kids.” They are sure to delight this Halloween. Take a trick-or-treating adventure with them.

This spooky Halloween treat box was made using Brutus Monroe’s Lime Pillow Boxes. Keeping it flat, I used Purple Galaxy Glaze with a star stencil. I layered a black felt doily and a circle die cut of one of the designs from the new “Happy Haunting” paper pad. I colored the witch from the Spooky Kids set with Copics and die cut a few layers to make her stand out. I added some Fabulous Fibers behind her for an accent.

To check out an interactive card I made using some of the other characters from “Spooky Kids,” check out this post. You can see the video here.
