Glittering Peace

Welcome!  I’m sharing another project today using Brutus Monroe’s Glitter stock!  Have you seen all the gorgeous colors we have?!  Today’s card is made with Gilded and Scarlet and was super easy!  I die-cut Altenew’s Layered Floral Cover die (Plate A) from the Scarlet glitter stock then cut Plate B from a piece of white cardstock.

I attached the floral dies to a white base card, then die-cut Peace from Gilded Glitter stock and adhered it to a strip of vellum.

The last step was to attach the vellum to the card panel, using Thermoweb’s Sticky Tape Runner.  See?!  How easy was that?!  You’ll find more Glitter stock cards and projects made by the Inspiration Team on Brutus Monroe’s blog, so have a look!  And check out the array of colored Glitter stock on the website!

All That Glitters Is Glitterstock!

Brutus Monroe is sharing projects made with their glorious GlitterStock and I can’t wait to share mine with you today!  Just look at all that shine!!  There’s just something about glitter card stock that brings a card to the next level of elegance!  I used Gilded which is the perfect weight for die-cutting!  But let me start at the beginning!  To begin my card, I created the background on a piece of watercolor cardstock with Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple distress oxide inks, smooshed, spritzed and blotted onto my paper.  While it was wet, I sprinkled on some kosher salt, dried it with my heat tool and then brushed off the salt.  The result is a different texture than just spritzing with water.

Next I heat-embossed in gold the beautiful spray of roses from Unity Stamps called You Are Forever Beautiful, then carefully colored them in with Copic markers.  You should avoid coloring directly over the embossing as it could damage the nibs.  After layering on a number of colors I trimmed my panel down and added a layer of Gilded Glitterstock behind it to frame it.

I bought this ornate frame die from AC Moore and cut it from another piece of Gilded, and added an oval of white cardstock to the center, upon which I’d stamped my script stamp in gold ink, then heat-embossed the pretty little sentiment from Stampin Up.  I attached the frame with All Purpose Craft glue and then adhered the panel to a white card base.  I have the amazing Sampler Pack with lots of luscious colors and can’t wait to play with them!  I hope you take a minute to see all the glittery goodness at Brutus Monroe and check out what Marie,  Berina and  Heather B. (our current guest designer!) have made for the blog!
