A few weeks back now I had a big Brusho Weekend on the blog here.  You might remember it.  If not then head back some posts and you will see lots of fun projects with these great Brusho Crystals. Recently I made up some mini Thank You cards for people who bought the Brusho Crystals over the weekend.  I thought it was time I showed you some of them.

Gotta love those Party Pandas.  I will miss these little fellows.

The base card measures 10.5cm x 15cm (approximately 4 1/8″ x 6 1/8″).  They are scored half way on the long side.  The card piece  that I created the background with was slightly smaller and I used Shimmery White for this.

To create the background I sprinkled over some Prussian Blue Brusho Crystals and then used the Spritzer with water and sprayed lightly over the card.  You can watch the Crystals change before your eyes.  It’s quite magical to watch.  The more water you add the more “dilute” or “whispery” it becomes.  Each card piece you do will end up different.  Just amazing really!

I let the card pieces dry and then stamped the little Panda in Memento Black and coloured the envelope he has with the Stampin’  Blends.  The heart was coloured with the Stampin’  Write Markers.  Just a simple sentiment is all that is required I think.  That was stamped on a small piece of Daffodil Delight and snipped down to size.  The sentiment and Panda were raised up with Dimensionals on the coloured card piece which had been adhered to the White card base.

Thanks for looking.


PS: Not much time left to get your Party Panda set or other Sale-A-Bration choice Free with your qualifying order.  Don’t leave it too late.

You have probably seen the new release Sale-A-Bration items especially the Blooming Basket Bundle.  I have just received this bundle so I was interested to see what can be done with it.  I thought I would focus on this bundle for Wednesday’s WOW! today.

I came across this video from Stampin’  Up! that highlights this set and shows some gorgeous ways to colour it.  I will share the cards featured in it further below.

Isn’t this colouring gorgeous???

How do you feel about cutting around the basket?  Just a tip in cutting the handle:  If you snip the handle down near the flowers on one side it is much easier to cut inside the handle area.  Then when you adhere it down you can tuck the handle back behind the handle and no one will even know.  Saves so much aggravation. 🙂


How clever is this idea in the card below?  Snip the flowers and leaves off the basket and add them to the card in a different way.  Gorgeous!!!

Now I am excited to play with this bundle.  Stay tuned to see what I get to do.


You can grab this bundle FREE as a Level 2 Sale-A-Bration choice.   Which means for orders from $180 AUS you can pick up the stamp set and the Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Do you still need to stock up on card and ink?  Head to my store -> HERE, shop away and then remember to select your Sale-A-Bration choice.

A couple of posts back I showed you a card with the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.  If you missed it then just head back -> HERE.

After a little discussion with a lovely friend, a different colour was suggested – Pool Party.  I thought that sounded a great idea.  How would this gorgeous paper turn out in other colours? I had a little time on Saturday and quickly whipped up this card.  I think the longest part was colouring the sentiment from the Label Me Pretty set.  I haven’t used this set very much so it was good to play with it and I dusted off the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.  

So what do you think of this version?

For this one to be quick I patted the Pool Party ink pad over the paper then I used a sponge to rub over it to smooth out the ink.  I was impatient. 🙂

I kept the card simple layering it on to a black card mat and then a Pool Party card base.  I added the line of dragonflies from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.

The sentiment from Label Me Pretty was coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  I added a few loops of the Copper Thread under the sentiment and added some tiny Pearls in the flower centres.

Still shiny and sparkly!  Thanks Lynda for the tip to try another colour. 🙂

See you next time,
