Comfort and Joy Stamp Set with Colorburst
Hi Everybody, Regina here.....
Have you started playing around with your new Brutus Monroe Colorbursts? I am just in awe watching those little specks turn into beautiful, colorful backgrounds, like the one on the card I made for today's post.
I'm using the stamp set from the Comfort and Joy Holiday Card Kit. I LOVE THESE STAMPS! They are all large sized and so much fun to stamp and also color. I colored and fussy cut several of these with Copics because I couldn't decide what I wanted to do so I'll use the Copic colored ones for another card.
I love the contrast between the white embossing powder and the background. I used every single image stamp in this set!
I used the MISTI to position the stamps where I wanted them to get them to all fit on the cardstock, embossed using the Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink and with Brutus Monroe Alabaster Embossing Powder (white). As a matter of fact, there is a cube size embossing ink in the Comfort and Joy Holiday Card Kit so if you are interested in this stamp set, it is a chance to try several other products. There is also a full size embossing powder in the kit.
PLEASE NOTE: This Comfort and Joy Holiday Card Kit is not the same thing as the monthly Inspiration Box. There will be a November Inspiration Box as well.
I used the Brutus Monroe Colorbursts in Cornflower, Marsala and Rouge. The paper I'm using here is Bristol Smooth. I sprinkled the powder randomly on the paper and then spritzed with water until all the little beads of Colorburst were gone and then I used the heat gun on it. I added a little more powder in the places that I felt needed more, spritzed and used the heat gun on it again.
Finally I added some Brutus Monroe Bottlecap Sequins in Crystal, Cotton Candy and Rose. These sequins are so pretty. They are flat and have grooves in them which give them even more shine. I used Brutus Monroe Glue to adhere the sequins.
Did I inspire you to use Colorburst on your Christmas cards? I do sometimes like to use non-traditional colors on my cards, just for a change.
