More Brusho Love

More Brusho Love

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m really loving the Brusho Crystal Colour from Stampin’ Up!. It’s a pack of five colors – Prussian Blue, Gamboge (Orange), Brilliant Red, Yellow, and Moss Green. I’ve shown you several fun things you can do with them – and here’s one more.

I mixed some Brilliant Red Brusho Crystals with Silver Embossing Paste, and it was absolutely gorgeous. It ended up a shimmery Sweet Sugarplum, and it’s lovely on Basic Black.

Brusho Crystal Colour, Sunshine Wishes, Stampin' Up!

The Silver Embossing Paste is a bit thinner than the White and Shimmery White pastes, so it takes a little longer to dry. I also used the widest palette knife with it, because it’s so thin. (It also has a bit of a smell, so if you have scent issues, please ask your demonstrator to let you check it out before you buy it. Some scents give me instant migraines, but this one didn’t cause me any problems. Yay!)

I simply spread a bit of paste on a Silicone Craft Sheet, then sprinkled Brilliant Red Brusho in the paste and mixed it up. Then I spread it over the mask and let it dry. Some of the hearts were a bit thick, so I used a paint brush to move the paste around a bit and give the hearts a little more texture. I thought they kind of looked like a box of chocolates when I got finished (and now I have Forrest Gump in my head).

After the paste dried, I added some more hearts. I die cut a few hearts using the Wood Crate Framelits with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and sponged Sweet Sugarplum ink over them. Then I die-cut the heart from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits from Champagne Foil Sheets. And just for a little more glitz, I added some hearts and dots from the Silver Metallic Enamel Shapes. The last step was to add the love die-cut from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits over the center.

This is Mike’s valentine, of course. I hope he likes it! He came home early from a conference (yay!!), so he’ll be here for Valentine’s Day. We’ll also have a little preschooler here for a sleepover, so I’m not sure how romantic it will be. But it will be fun!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

      Thanks, Jackie! I plan on getting my money’s worth with this. So many of the other products we’ve had sat on the shelf until they retired because I didn’t want to use them up.
