Every year Stampin’ Up! comes out with a list of retiring products to make room for brand new items! While it is exciting, it’s always sad to say goodbye to some of our favourites! From now until May 31st is your chance to get these products (some only while supplies last) before they are gone forever!
Please take a look at the lists below to see what is retiring:
Welcome friends! Today I am talking about Brusho and I have a video tutorial on how to create this stunning card using these Watercolour Crystals!
You might have heard of the new Brusho Crystal Colour from Stampin’ Up! already, but just in case you haven’t, let me tell you about it! Brusho Crystal Colour is really a unique and highly pigmented watercolour powder and currently Stampin’ Up! offers a set 5 different colours. These include Prussian Blue, Brilliant Red, Gamboge, Moss Green, and Yellow.
The powder can be applied to a variety of mediums including: watercolour, mixing with acrylics, simple sprinkling techniques and even wood staining! But for the purpose of this post, I did some good ole’ fashioned watercolour painting.
Before you get started, be sure to gather some of the additional watercolour painting supplies (as noted in the video below). You’ll also find a full supply list at the bottom of this post:
Two Mason Jars for water
A small bowl or other dish
A Paint Brush
Look how pretty this is! I love it SO much! This would make a perfect birthday or Mother’s Day card too!
But to get the most out of Brusho, I have some tips for you and really think you’ll find them useful. They are:
Brusho is a highly pigmented product, which means it’s really rich in colour and a little goes a long way!
I suggest you do not fully open the Brusho jar, but rather poke a couple of holes in the top with your Paper Piercing Tool (or other). This way you can ‘sprinkle’ on the colour when needed. Think of it as using a salt shaker!
You don’t always need to add water to your paper first, simply sprinkle and spritz! Sprinkle your Brusho colours directly on your Watercolour Paper and then spritz with your Stampin’ Spritzer! You can then blend with your paint brush or leave it as-is for a crystalized effect.
Watercolour Paper is optimal when using Brusho, but if you don’t have that on hand, use heavy cardstock.
It’s messy and spontaneous, and FUN!
If you have some tips to share yourself, please comment on the post as I’d love to learn as well!

Hello friends! I’m in the midst of an unexpected two weeks off at my day job, so that means I’ve been spending more time in the craft room – and I’m loving it! To be honest though, I’ve needed a bit of a mental break and am getting some much needed rest and time to really just do nothing. It’s been good for me and a much needed break for sure.
But let’s get on with today’s card because I am in LOVE! It features the new Perennial Birthdays Stamp Set from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue. I can already tell that this set is going to get a lot of use; not just for birthday cards, but I foresee all sorts of occasions being used with this fun floral set.
I stamped this card using the masking technique and did some watercoloring with our Aqua Painters. I used a Berry Burst for the card based, and then Berry Burst, Pool Party, and Cucumber Crush Ink for the stamped images. If you don’t happen to have Cucumber Crush Ink, Wild Wasabi is an excellent substitute!
It really turned out lovely, don’t you think?

I decided to enter the Global Design Project Challenge #123 at the last minute, and I’m super excited to show you what I came up with! I’ve done the challenge before, but I admit, it’s been a while!
This challenge (#GDP123) is all about new beginnings, and I think this is something we can all relate to. Whether it’s a new job, you’re a new Stampin’ Up! Demo (or want to be!), retirement, wedding…the list can go on! We’ve all started anew at one point or other, so what a perfect theme!
For this particular card, I had two things in mind; retirement and/or new job. I think it suits either occasion as its bright, cheery, and really shows excitement!
The layout of the card is cased from the lovely Lauren Alarid, who is a fellow demonstrator and a 2018 Artisan Design Team Member. Her cards are always so lovely, but the layout in which this one is based, is probably one of my faves!

Hello Friends! I have a super cute card to share with you today! It’s featuring the CUTEST set from the new Sale-A-Bration Brochure – the Party Pandas! Seriously, these little guys are so adorable I know you will love them.
Also featured on this card is a favourite of mine from the Annual Catalogue, the Birthday Delivery Bundle. So cute, right?!
I made this card on Saturday afternoon when I went live on my Stampin’ Girl Facebook Page, but I also uploaded the video to my brand-new YouTube Channel (please subscribe)! I’ll post more on YouTube later, but be sure to ‘like’ my Facebook Page so you never miss a live video!
Hi Friends! I hope you’re having an amazing week so far! I’ve been busy this week; both at work and at play, but I am happy to bring you a card featuring the new Truly Tailored Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalogue that went live on January 3rd!

From the moment I opened the Occasions Catalogue, the True Gentlemen Suite instantly caught my eye. I’m not sure if was the colours (my fave colours are blue/turquoise), or if it’s because masculine cards are what I struggle with most, but this set really has it all for me. Plus, I thought that this suite would make the masculine cards come a bit easier for me.
And let me tell you, this suite has helped so much!
I decided to go with something a bit more simple this time, but this suite really allows you to get creative with the sentiments and embellishments. The colour, sentiments; everything about this set just speaks to me and has so much to offer.
I think aside from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set itself, the True Gentlemen Designer Series Paper may be one of my most favourite Designer Series Paper that Stampin’ Up! has ever had. I say this because of it’s level of details, it’s classiness, and I think it can appeal to both kids and adults alike. Just think of the gift packaging you can create with it too!
If you like this suite as much as I do, but are not too sure what to get, I’ve put together this little bundle for you to give you a hand. It’s an easy way to earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!
