Several months ago, my friend Jackie showed a technique using Brusho on foil sheets. It’s spectacular! I used that technique for one of our Friday Challenges with the Tranquil Textures Stamp Set (new in the 2018-19 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog), and you can see that here. Even though I made it for the challenge, it was my son Wesley’s birthday card. He turned 26 on Friday. (Happy birthday, Wes!)
I am working on a swap, and thought about using this technique for it. I haven’t quite decided yet, but here’s a Brusho on Foil card using the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set.
It’s really hard to get a good picture with the foil sheets. There’s always a bright spot where light is reflecting. This shows it off pretty well, though.
I started with a Copper Foil Sheet, then spritzed, added some Prussian Blue and Gamboge color crystals, then spritzed again. I tipped the sheet in all directions, then used my Heat Tool to move the color around a bit more as well as to dry it. It wasn’t quite what I wanted, so I added more crystals and spritzed until I was happy with it.
While it finished drying, I stamped the tree on Very Vanilla Cardstock using Shaded Spruce and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers and my Stamparatus. Then I die-cut with the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies. The Rooted in Nature Stamp Set and Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies are both in the 2018-19 Annual Catalog, and you’ll be able to puchase these two items separately or in a discounted bundle. If this ends up being my swap card, I’m going to die cut all the trees, then use one of the negatives as a template in the Stamparatus. It will go so much faster. You really need to put the Stamparatus stamp positioner on your 2018-19 Annual Catalog wish list. It will totally change the way you stamp; it will make it so much easier to create multiples and to stamp clean images.
I stamped the large and small leaves in Versamark, then heat embossed them with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Finally, I stamped the sentiment in Jet Black StāzOn (it will be back in the new catalog!), and mounted the foil to a Shaded Spruce card base. The tree was popped on last with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Give this technique a try! It’s a lot of fun and almost impossible to mess up. Plus it makes a really cool background.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
