Cloud Background Stamp | Partial Heat Embossing 0
December 2017 Stamp Club 0
Hello Crafting Friends,
I am excited to share with you the card I made using the December Stamp Club "Love is in the Air" stamp from Brutus Monroe. I also used a new background stamp by Brutus Monroe called "Cloud Background".
(Stamp Club stamp sets are two by three stamps for just $5 (which includes shipping). They are fun to create with and pair well with other Brutus Monroe stamps.)
I started my card by stamping the hot air balloon in red and fussy cutting it out. I stamped the cloud background in blue on pale blue card stock and cut it down to size. I then began the layering of pieces onto each other. I put the cloud layer on black card stock and then onto the white card base. I used three small heart die cuts in red and added glossy accents to them. I added some silver thread and popped up the hot air balloon over the thread.
I am pleased with the end result and hope you too will share your creations with us at Brutus Monroe Facebook Fan Page.

Happy Tuesday Everyone! Today I've made a love or a Valentine's day card using the new Cloud Background stamp and the Balloon Stamp of the month! I thought they went so well together!
I first inked up the new Cloud Background stamp with Brutus Monroe embossing ink and sprinkled the Brutus Monroe Alabaster embossing powder all over the inked area and then heat set it. I used Ranger distress inks for an ink resist technique over the embossed card in two shades of light blues.
Next I placed the Hot Air Balloon stamp with hearts that come with the stamp into my Misti tool and put my cardstock in place. I inked the balloon and the hearts with Brutus Monroe Rouge Surface Ink and stamped onto my card. I left the stamp in my Misti, by it being in the same place, I then inked the rope and basket with the Brutus Monroe Machiatto Surface ink so they could be brown and then stamped my card again. I now have two colors on my hot air balloon.
I trimmed my cloud background down to 5.5 inches and placed it on a piece of red cardstock slightly larger and adhered those to a 6 x 6 card base. I popped my hot air balloon up on foam adhesive and glued my hearts down flat using Brutus Monroe craft glue.
To finish my card I added acrylic bubbles and glossy accents.
I hope you enjoyed my card and thanks for stopping by!
