Brusho Baby, Brusho

If you like individuality, then Brusho Crystal Colour is for you!  These were so simple to make and every one is different.  You will never have two cards that look the same.

Whisper White - 6" x 3", scored and folded at 3"
Whisper White Thick - 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"

Stamp image with VersaMark then add White Embossing Powder.  Heat set with Heat Tool until the powder is shiny.

Spritz a bit of water onto the image and then sprinkle with Brusho color of choice.  If the colors don't spread as much as you want, spritz with a little more water.  Dab any extra water up with a folded tissue or paper towel.  I used my heat tool again to dry them so I could finish them off.  You could also just let them set over night.

To straighten them out a bit more - as they were still curled - I used my bone folder and very gently curled them (uncurled) them.

Instead of dimensionals - because of the curling - I used Foam Adhesive Strips.  They worked wonderfully.

Thank you for looking in today.  It's Finally Friday!

Have a great weekend!

Thank You - Later...

On Tuesday night I made chocolate chip cookies and a thank you card for my UPS Man because I knew he was bringing my workshop order from last weekend.  He loves my chocolate chip cookies, don't tell him they are made straight from the Toll-House package! 

Since I had to go to work, hubby was in charge of watching for him to be sure #1 that it was our regular guy and #2 that he didn't get away without his cookies.  I even put a note on the door outside for him to wait after he knocked.

In the afternoon, I received my email stating my package was delivered - I love that service from UPS!  So I called home and yes, my package arrived, but it wasn't "my guy".  Drats.  Thankfully hubby had the door open, so the driver never saw the note about waiting.  I guess next time.

So, here's the card.

Recipe - Basic Black - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Petal Passion DSP - 5 1/4" x 4"
Island Indigo - 4 1/4" x 2 1/4"
Whisper White - 4" x 2"
Whisper White - 5 1/4" x 4" (inside)

Petal Palette (Thank You)
Party Panda (Panda... )  only a little longer to get yours for FREE!

Clean and simple and very easy to do.  Inside I wrote a note thanking him for bringing me all my Stampin' Up! goodies!  Guess I'll have to change the date when I do give it to him! 

Thanks for looking in today!  It's Friday Eve!  Yipppeee!

My apologies on the sentiment, off the top of my head I don't remember what stamp set it's from as I stamped it a while ago and put it with my "ready to use" sentiments.  I think I should write on the back of them so I know where they are from next time! 

Thank you for looking in today!  It's HUMP Day!  Yayyy!
