Video Tutorial: Brusho Winter Night

Stampin' Up! handmade Christmas card with Brusho colour crystals, Waterfront stamp set, Christmas Quilt stamp set - video tutorial - two Brusho techniques - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I couldn’t do a Facebook Live this week due to travel, so I made a tutorial video in its place. In the video I demonstrate two different techniques for making this night sky background with Brusho Colour Crystals (coming in the Occasions catalog!). I’m also using the new Waterfront stamp set, also coming in the Occasions catalog.

Picture Perfect Christmas

Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Birthday (coming Occasions 2018), Watercolor Christmas, Foil Snowflakes - handmade Christmas card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey there! I’ll tell ya, I am having a hard time stamping with anything but the new stuff from the Occasions catalog that begins January 3. I always get so excited about a new catalog, and this time is no different!

But it’s also still Christmas time, and there’s a color challenge at Global Design Project that uses a very Christmassy combination, so I compromised and made a Christmas card that uses a birthday stamp set from the new Occasions catalog. Win-win!

Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Birthday (coming Occasions 2018), Watercolor Christmas, Foil Snowflakes - handmade Christmas card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Aren’t those little gift bows cute? They come from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set (I’m in love with the whole Picture Perfect Birthday suite). The main color for the red bows is Real Red, stamped off once on scratch paper and then stamped on the Whisper White cardstock. The shadows on the red bow are done in Real Red but are not stamped off first. The green bows are done the same way, but with Lemon-Lime Twist. The shadows are not stamped off, but the bows are. The sentiment is from Watercolor Christmas, which is retiring (sadface). I popped in a gold Foil Snowflake and some 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon in Crumb Cake. My favorite embellishments, though, are those tiny little epoxy dots. These are from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes, also coming in the Occasions catalog. I colored them with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Marker.

For the inside, I stamped the Real Red bow again in the corner. Just a little extra something.

November Blends Club: Santa’s Sleigh

Here are the projects we made in my Stampin’ Blends Marker Club in November. The stamp set for the club last month was Sleigh Ride, and the Blends included were the Cherry Cobbler (Light and Dark), Old Olive (Light and Dark), and Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends. November also included the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and a set of storage cases for the markers. The club also includes all the supplies for the three projects.

Merry Little Berries

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments bundle, Pretty Pines thinlits, Swirly Snowflakes thinlits, Merry Little Christmas paper, Stampin' Blends - handmade Christmas card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Good morning! Look at that gorgeous paper. Just look at it! Sometimes you make a card that you can’t stop looking at. For you, this might not be that card, but for me it is. Bold, bright, and blingy! That’s my jam.

I’m playing along with the Christmas Joy theme challenge at Global Design Project this week.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments bundle, Pretty Pines thinlits, Swirly Snowflakes thinlits, Merry Little Christmas paper, Stampin' Blends - handmade Christmas card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This piece of paper is probably my favorite piece in the Merry Little Christmas paper pack, because of all the coloring possibilities. I started with coloring the berries/leaves/olives/whatever those things are, and I was thinking of coloring the branches but thought they looked so striking left in white. I colored the berries (for lack of knowing what they are) with Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends. I started with Light, then colored the tips with Dark, then went back over the whole thing with Light again. I went over the dark areas of each berry with my Wink of Stella pen so they shimmer.

My card base is not Cherry Cobbler, but Real Red. I’ve found that the Dark Cherry Cobbler marker is more Cherry Cobbler, but the Light one is a perfect match for Real Red. On top of the card base is a 2″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. The piece of Merry Little Christmas DSP was originally 4″ x 5-1/4″, and I cut off the edge with the decorative edge die from the Swirly Snowflakes thinlits. I just love that little extra detail! The sentiment is from Snowflake Sentiments, and I wanted it without the “from our family to yours”, so I stamped the whole thing in Real Red, cut it out with the Stitched Shapes circle, and then covered the “from our family to yours” part with some Year of Cheer washi tape. The white branches are cut with the Pretty Pines thinlits. Before adding the sentiment to the card, I popped in some Silver Mini Sequin Trim (tacked down with a Glue Dot), then put the sentiment on Dimensionals. The pines are glued to the center of the sentiment, and then I added some Rhinestones, which I colored with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Blends marker.
