Contemporary Christmas Card and Free Shipping Today Only!

This card started out as just an experiment with the new Brusho Crystals that will be available in the 2018 Occasions Catalog in January. These are dry paint crystals that activate with water. They have a ton of possibilities! Unless noted, all products Stampin' Up!

The first thing I did was put the tree from the Santa's Sleigh stamp set on the acrylic block upside down. In other words, I would be using it like a shadow stamp. I stamped it with Lemon Lime Twist on to a watercolor panel. Then I sprinkled some of the Brusho on the paper and gave it a little spritz with water. After it dried, I stamped the actual tree image on top of the shadow image with Emerald Envy ink. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of watercolor paper and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

If you notice that the ribbon doesn't exactly match the DSP I used on the bottom of the card, you are correct! I knew it didn't match perfectly (the darker color in the paper is Tranquil Tide), but I didn't really care. I love that Stampin' Up! has SO many things that coordinate color-wise, but sometimes you need to go outside the box and see that other pairings will work also.

  1. Kim I absolutely love your card, and I adore that stamp set. I have seen it used in a contemporary manner as you just did, and also with a farm house look, and it probably has other endless uses. Thanks for the ideas and your continued dedication to paper crafting!

  2. A lovely card and looks so easy, I am excited to try this technique.
