National Craft Month Blog Hop: Epic Celebrations

Good evening!  So March is National Craft Month so I thought it would be perfect to help kick off this fun month by participating in a blog hop to celebrate all the crafty fun.  I had the Brusho Crystal Color out on my desk so I decided to use it a different way to create a really fun and easy background.

I started with Tangerine Tango cardstock for the cardbase and then used Basic Black cardstock as a mat for the Whisper White cardfront.  To create the background I lightly spritzed the cardstock with water and then sprinkled different colors of Brusho for a kind of ombre effect (I used Yellow, Orange and Red) and then I spritzed the cardstock again with water until the crystal color started to spread and create the look I was going for.  To help the cardfront dry faster I did us my Heat Tool.

For the stamped images I used the Epic Celebrations stamp set (a Sale-a-bration Freebie!) and stamped the tennis shoe image on Basic Black ink using Versamark ink and then used Silver Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool to set the image.  I used the Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits to out the tennis shoes.  I wanted to amp up the silver effect on this card so I took a piece of Silver Foil Paper and embossed it with the Big Shot and Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder and cut it to look like a flag.

The greeting was stamped in Basic Black ink on Real Red cardstock and I used the same framelits to cut the greeting before attaching it to the cardfront with dimensionals.  I added a silver star enamel shape, from the Metallics Enamel Shapes for final touch of bling.

This card was so much fun to make and is perfect especially for a teen or other kiddo you want to let them know how special they are.  This is one of the cards we will be making at next weeks Just Cards class so if you haven't had a chance to play with the Brusho Crystal Color before this will be your chance.  Now make sure to check out all the other great projects the blog hoppers are sharing, there is plenty of inspiration to get you through the whole month, and beyond.
