Stamp of the Month | Stretch Your Stamps

Stamp of the Month | Stretch Your Stamps

Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and received lots of crafty goodies!
It's the end of the month, and at that time here at Brutus Monroe we like to focus on Stamp Club! So today I've combined two previously released stamps from our stamps of the month, this is a good way to stretch our stamps to get more use out of them. I do not own many Valentine stamps so I thought I would take our cute robot stamp which is a birthday stamp and make it into a Valentine's Day Card! I know it's early, but why not.
I started with the background using the smooching technique. I used a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and Distress Oxidess Inks. The colors I used were Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, Broken China, and Wilted Violet. To give the background some shine I spritzed it with Imagine Shimmer Craft Spray in Shine. I colored two of the robots with copic markers and added a bow to one for a little girl, then popped them both up on foam tape for dimension. I also added Stickles to their antenna for some added sparkle. 
For the sentiment it says Happy Botday on the stamp set, I put a piece of tape over "bot", used  the Brutus Monroe embossing ink, removed the tape, and stamped my sentiment on the black strip. I covered it in Alabaster embossing powder and heat set it. I added the heart from the Love Balloon stamp club set in the middle so it could read, Happy Heart Day!  I also popped the strip on foam tape and added Wink of Stella to the heart.
To embellish my card I added some Acrylic bubbles, Ballerina sequins, and Cotton Candy sequins, they matched perfectly! 
I want to tell you a little about the Brutus Monroe Stamp Club.

Super cute. LOVE the robot! I’m always looking for cute robot stamps. Super bummed to discover the robot stamp isn’t available for purchase. Really enjoyed your card though!
