Brusho Cards - One Hour Card Class 042 - OHCC042


Here are the three Brusho cards we made.  It’s kind of addicting and sometimes frustrating as you really don’t have much control over what your background will look like.  No two cards are the same, that’s for sure!

Gold Butterfly Brusho Card 042A


Stamps: Beautiful Day (Occasions 2018).

Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, watercolor paper, Painted with Love DSP (Occasions 2018).

Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Versamark.

Tools: Gold embossing powder, Brilliant Red Brusho Crystals, aqua painter, Wink of Stella, Love Mini Tinsel (Occasions 2018), glue dot, Tombow glue.

Gold emboss the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set on to watercolor paper.  Stamp the phrase from the same stamp set at the bottom in Rich Razzleberry ink. Sprinkle a couple of dabs of Brilliant Red Brusho Crystals on to a clear block.



Use the aqua painter to apply water to 3 or 4 parts of the butterfly. 


Pick up a tiny speck of the red crystals and begin coloring over the water.  Continue painting a couple more parts of the butterfly until you run out of color then pick up another speck of red crystal and repeat until the butterfly is complete.  Let dry. 


Splatter with gold Wink of Stella.


Apply DSP to left side of the panel.  Add gold trim.


Cut another piece of gold trim at 3” long and tie a faux knot.


Stamp a phrase in Rich Razzleberry ink from the Beautiful Day stamp set for the inside of the card.



Decorate an envelope with the butterfly stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink.

Inlaid Embossing technique - One Hour Card Class 064 - OHCC064


Stamps: Birthday Blossoms (2017/18), Afterthoughts (retired - hostess 2010/11).

Cardstock: White, Ruby Red, Old Olive, Turquoise, Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point, Hello Honey.

Ink: Turquoise, Ruby Red.

Tools: Layering Circles Framelits, bone folder, purchased envelope, dimensionals, Tombow adhesive, snail adhesive, Glue Stick, Elegant Dots embossing folder.

Punches: 1-3/4”, 1-3/8”, 1-1/4”, ¾”, ½”, 1” circles.

A very simple and quick card.  The main trick to this card is to adhere each circle securely – I ran a row of Snail down the center, then finished with a Glue Stick right to the edges.

I cut circles as follows:
Ruby Red: 1-3/8”, 1-1/4”, ¾”; Old Olive: ¾”, ½”; Turquoise: 1”, 1-1/4”; Bermuda Bay: 1-3/8”; Pacific Point: 1”; Hello Honey: ¾”, ½”, ½”.

Before adding the phrase, run the panel through the Elegant Dots embossing folder with the circles facing the logo of the embossing folder. 


Add the sentiment with dimensionals. 


Stamp a phrase from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set on Turquoise cardstock with Ruby Red ink.  Punch with the 1-3/4” circle punch.  Adhere to inside of card. 


Decorate a purchased envelope with the Stampin’ Around ‘Spot On’ image with Turquoise ink.

Stamp a row of mountains in full strength Crumb Cake ink about 2-1/2” from bottom of panel.  Immediately paint with the aqua painter brush.  Let dry.

Ink the zig zag image and stamp two rows of grass in full strength Garden Green ink – have the first row touching the bottom of the mountains on the right-hand side.  Immediately paint with the aqua painter brush.  Let dry.

Ink the long narrow image in full strength Sahara Sand ink and fill in the areas around the grass and mountains. Immediately paint with the aqua painter brush.  Let dry. 


Add the pebbles in full strength Soft Suede ink across the dirt/grass. 

Stamp water in full strength Marina Mist ink at the bottom of the card. 


Stamp a second water image in full strength Marina Mist ink that touches the bottom of the grass/dirt.  Immediately paint with the aqua painter brush.  Let dry. 


Ink the water image again in Marina Mist ink, stamp off twice then stamp on the right-hand side of the middle water.  Repeat for the left-hand side.  Immediately paint with the aqua painter brush.  Let dry.


Ink the water image in full strength Soft Sky ink.  Fill in the sky area.  Immediately paint with the aqua painter brush.  Let dry.

Ink the zig zag image in full strength Night of Navy ink.  Stamp on top of the water.  Immediately paint with the aqua painter brush.  Let dry. 


Add the sun with full strength Crushed Curry ink.  Immediately paint with the aqua painter brush.  Let dry.

Ink the trees in full strength Tranquil Tide ink.  Stamp 2 trees on the left side.  Without re-inking, stamp their reflection in the water.  Immediately paint the top trees only with the aqua painter brush.  Let dry.  Repeat with all three trees on the right-hand side. 


Mount on to a 3-3/4” x 5” Garden Green panel – I trimmed it a little closer to the water colored panel then adhered to Marina Mist card.

Stamp Happy Birthday from the Glamper Greetings stamp set with Night of Navy ink on to Marina Mist cardstock.  Punch with the Word Window punch and apply dimenstionals.


Add a phrase and a little scenery to the inside of the card.
