Festive Friday: Brusho Country Home

Nov 16, 2018 | Gratitude, Thank You & Thanksgiving Cards | 0 comments

Are you ready for a real challenge?

We’ve got a good one for you over at Festive Friday where we’re celebrating 3D Day (it’s on December 3rd). That means we’re looking for 3D projects OR you can use the other option of a Single Layer project. Combine the two for an extra challenge!

I don’t know what we were thinking with this one. I know it was a big challenge for me as I don’t typically do either type of project. I just love embellishing too much to make a single layer card, and I don’t really have the occasion to do a 3D project. Yikes!

Play along at the Festive Friday Challenge - Earn Fest Points for free stuff! Find us @festivefridaychallenge or festivefridaychallenge.com. New challenges every other Friday! #cardchallenge

Looking for ideas – here’s a few:

  • Create some fun projects for your Holiday home from paper-chain garland to something more complex…
  • Try your hand at a pop-up, explosion, or box card.
  • Keep it minimal with a single layer card – embellishments and texture are your friend!

For the Festive Friday Challenge #FF0021). Featuring: Country Home stamp set, Brusho Crystal Colour. #nicolewatt #pmretreat #stampinup #thankful #thanks #watercolor

If you stopped by yesterday, this card won’t be too much of a surprise. I’ve been exploring Brusho Crystal Colour coupled with Masking Fluid to make these wonderful one-layer cards! For once, I’m content with this simple, flat design, because it’s anything but flat! The Brusho brings the background to life, and watercoloring instantly adds depth to any image if done properly. In the end, this single-layer design leaps off the page!

Today’s project can be completed in no time.

Here's some other projects you'll like!


AECP: Create a Rotating Stamp Design

Today’s technique is going to blow your mind!
I have been a fan of the rotating stamp style, like Concord & 9th’s Turnabout ™ stamps, for a while now. It’s just so cool how you can turn the paper 90-degrees, stamp the same image, and end up with a filled-in design that looks like wallpaper or wrapping paper!

AECP: Double Stencil Technique

Let’s go next-level with stencils!
Stencils are pretty popular right now, and there’s so many ways you can use them. I was inspired by my latest Altenew Academy class to see what new and innovative way I could use them for my latest project.

Festive Friday: Lattice & Rose For Any Occasion
