Inside My Craft Room and a Brusho Project
Valgerdur Rodriguez Stampin' Up! Demonstrator
Do have one of those projects that perpetually remains incomplete? This table is one of a few of my refinishing endeavors that has yet to receive a coat of paint... It is already stripped and sanded, but not done. It found its way into my craft studio and serves as a cutting area and supply station.
I initially planned to do a chalk finish and add an eclectic assortment of refinished chairs to be used as my main craft table for my monthly classes, but I did not quite get there. I plan to get ever increasingly intentional with my unfinished undertakings...soon...
I also have a plethora of cards to share. They go back a year or more. Today's blog will feature a previous Brusho class I held...some time ago.
The first card is a retro card that reminds me of a bowling shirt. Anyway, that was the image I had in my head when the image in my mind's eye came to life on paper.
I forgot to mention the pocket serves as a transparent gift card holder made from vellum (101856) with a heat embossed Stampin' Emboss White Powder (109132) stitched pattern. The shapes in the background using the Tailored Tag Punch (145667), glasses from the Pocket Dies (143750), sentiment, and stars were created using wet watercolor paper (149612) that I sprinkled with Stampin' Up! Pigment Sprinkles (149663).
Here is a closer look. The sunglasses from the Pocket Dies (143750) were embossed in Black Stampin' Emboss Powder (146956) and the stars were punched out and covered with glossy accents. The celebrate sentiment also received a shiny coat.
Here is another card using some of the left over Pigment Sprinkled saturated watercolor paper. In addition to these cards, two more cards were completed using the large images from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set (151257) embossed with clear Stampin' Clear Emboss Powder (109130) onto watercolor paper.
The sentiment was created to look like an I.D. charm bracelet using the Classic Label Punch (141491). There is a coating of glossy accents on this card too. I love adding a little shine to my projects.
The last card to share today started with a card sketch. I really do not use sketches often for inspiration or a jumping off point. I should though...
The design in the background is an Altenew stencil in which I embossed my Whisper White Cardstock (100730). I love stencils! I have a bunch, but I do not use them as often as I should!
Did I mention that my monthly card classes can take up to 4 hours! That might seem like a long class, but the layers of instruction and techniques is something not to be missed! Perhaps, one day, I will venture to video streaming the techniques I continue to learn to do and share.
Thanks for stopping by and return soon to share in a new reveal of another area of my craft studio and another set of cards!
