I shared a card with the Peaceful Reflection set the other day. It was a nice, soft look with heat embossing. (Head back a couple of posts if you missed it). For this card today we are going for a different feel. We are going funky. 🙂
Are they butterflies or flowers?? You be the judge. Pretty funky though do you think?? Can you see that with this set?
Colours are Rich Razzleberry and Flirty Flamingo with some Lemon Lime Twist. The Lemon Lime Twist card was embossed with the Petal Pair Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from Color Me Happy stamp set which is now retired. I had made this card before the retirement list was out.
I made another card similar which I will show you tomorrow.
On a previous post I showed you the cute Thank You cards using the Party Pandas and they had a fun Brusho background. (If you missed it then head back 2 posts).
Today I have a similar little card to show you using the Brusho Crystals but this time using the Charming Cafe set. These little cards are to welcome new members to my team who have joined during Sale-A-Bration. It’s so nice to have them in the JEN’s INK team. 🙂
Here are a couple of them for you to see.
Aren’t they fun backgrounds? Each time they turn out different. The pieces were made in my Brusho classes to demonstrate how they work before each class member made their own. I thought why not use them for these cards rather than waste them.
For these I sprinkled over some Brusho Crystals and I used Glossy card this time. Then I spritzed lightly with water. I also tilted the cards slightly so you get the colour run.
The pieces were then adhered to a small card base made with the Thick Whisper White card. You can make these any size but to give you the approximate size of these.
The Brusho card piece measures 8cm x 12.4cm ( 3 1/8″x 4 7/8″). The card base is 8.4cm x 24.8cm, scored at 12.4cm. (3 3/8″ x 7.3/4″ scored 4 7/8″ ** Please check the imperial size measurements beforehand).
The sweet little cafe chairs and table from the Charming Cafe set was stamped and coloured with Watercolor Pencils then cut with the Framelits. Once I had adhered the Brusho piece to the card base then a vellum circle cut with the Stitched Circle Framelits was lightly adhered to the front. So you couldn’t see the adhesive I added some dabs of snail adhesive near the centre so it would be covered with the table and chairs. Then the Table and chairs were raised up with Dimensionals. The sentiment piece is from the Color Me Happy set and simply stamped in Black and cut around. Before they were adhered down I looped around some Silver Thread.

Thanks for stopping by,
Well, you can make any colour you like!
You might have seen you can colour any embellishment like the Rhinestones and Pearls or ribbon with the Blends BUT I had a play with something else the other day. Did you know you can colour the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with the Stampin’ Blends. Now before you rush off and try it there are a couple of important notes.
** Use the Brush Tip end of your marker and only GENTLY brush over the Glimmer Paper. Too hard a rub may damage the nibs of your marker.
** Only colour the area exposed so you don’t waste the ink. You can see further below.
Here is the card I made with colouring the Glimmer Paper.
This is using the set Color Me Happy now available. I have coloured the bird and the flower with the Stampin’ Blends. Plus I coloured the Adhesive Pearl in too. When I assembled the card I embossed the White card mat with the Softly Falling Embossing Flower and added a strip of white that was cut with the Flourish Thinlits under the Merry Little Christmas DSP. (Don’t just keep this paper for Christmas!).
Getting back to the Scallop Circle. I cut a scallop Circle using the Layering Circles Thinlits from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Then coloured just around the edge of it gently with the Dark Bermuda Bay Blends marker. You don’t want to press hard with the marker. Also, you only need to colour the outside edge that will be seen.
So what colour Glimmer Paper will you make?? Have fun with it.
Have a great weekend,
A bonus of being a demonstrator is that we get to order the products way before customers can. It gives us much more time to play with them. When I first got my Stampin’ Blends a couple of weeks ago I also ordered this new set Color Me Happy. It’s such a sweet set. I shared these cards on Instagram and Facebook but hadn’t got to share them with you as yet. So it seems a good time now to show you what I have been doing.
What do you think of this Color Me Happy Set. Very cute?? This set is $47 W or $33 C.
There is also the Color Me Happy Card Kit. This kit includes card stock and all embellishments to make 16 cards. Cost is $41 which is not bad for $2.60 per card. You would need to buy the stamp set separately to use with this set.
Whether you are wanting to order the Blends, the stamps or any other products you can shop now.
