Dragon Kisses 0
Hello everyone! Aletha Jane here with a little more Brutus/Monroe inspiration to add to the amazing creations by our talented Inspirations team.
For my project I decided to use the new “Dragon Kisses” clear stamp set. I love all this in the mythical and magical realm. Dragons are included!
I stamped one of the dragons with our Raven Ink for alcohol markers. Love this amazing ink! It loves water and alcohol! You will love this ink so much that we suggest getting the Raven re-inker.
My next step was the coloring. I did use markers in my stash, but I cannot wait to work with Brutus/Monroe’s alcohol markers.
To finish my birthday card I trimmed some designer paper, from my stash, down to the right size, and edged those with more Raven cardstock. All pieces were then attached to my card base with our craft glue. The last three things were stamping the sentiment, trimming that with Raven cardstock, added black flat-back pearls and glitter pens from my stash.
Thanks so much for stopping by our Brutus/Monroe’s Inspiration blog. Check back every day for more inspiration from our team. On Wednesday, July 18, we will have an inspirational blog hop. You'll not want to miss that!Have a great week and "create your own ending"!

Celebrate Today With a Birthday Bear 0
Hi all! Aletha Jane here. This will be my first post on Brutus/Monroe’s blog as a new designer. I am excited and honored to be working with Brutus/Monroe and their talented designers I love everything about our products. They range from card making, tags, ATCs, to mixed media (and much more), whatever is your delight.
On to my project…I have a very cute and fun birthday card to share. I first stamped this little chubby bear from the “Birthday Bears” set in B/M’s Raven ink. This ink has the most important attributes that I would look for in a hybrid ink, waterproof and alcohol marker safe. With that said, after the ink was set I colored with Copic markers. Most of the bear was colored with the warm greys.
My next step is to stamp the “Watercolor” background stamp with Sidewalk Surface Ink. The surface inks are going to be another favorite. My next step is to cut all my layers with B/M’s 8 piece stitched square die. The top dark brown layer was embossed with our embossing ink and our ultra-fine alabaster embossing powder. The sentiment "Celebrate Today" is included with the "Birthday Bear" stamp set. Finally assemble your card. I did fussy cut the bear and pop it up with foam squares.
Thanks so much for stopping by. More inspiration will be coming your way tomorrow. We hope you will check out our Brutus/Monroe's blog every day.

Color Burst and Raven Embossing Powder 0
Hello Friends Waleska here!!! Today I want to share with you a fun and easy card you can create for many occasions with two beautiful supplies Color Bursts and Brutus Monroe Ultra Fine Embossing powders.
To create this card I started with the color burst background, by sprinkle the rouge color burst to my card base and add water. I let it dry and added embossing ink to the beautiful 6 x 6 stamp set and stamped it on the color burst background.
I added Raven embossing ink for a dramatic look, and finally die cut the word prayers on the front panel and inlay the word with white cardstock.
In my opinion this is a beautiful look and you can use this design to create elegant and shiny cards. Take out your background stamps and color burst and start creating something amazing today!
I hope your week is amazing
