Big Top Stamp Set from Brutus Monroe and Ink Blended Die Cuts!

Hello friends! This week’s card for BRUTUS MONROE is so fun and colorful! Their new circus-themed stamp set, BIG TOP, was a blast to play with. I felt like this card needed lots of color, so I used bright hues on the images, and matched those colors with some inks on my die cuts to create a bright birthday card!

All the images I used from the stamp set were colored with my STYLE FILE MARKERS. These alcohol markers are so easy for even a beginner like myself to use, and they are very affordable compared to other brands. I’d highly recommend checking them out!

I then fussy cut my colored images and set them aside as I worked on my bright background. First, I used a die set from Lawn Fawn- their STITCHED CIRCLE FRAMES. I used both the frames and the inside circles. All the pieces were colored with Distress Ink colors that I chose to try to match the colors on the images.

After my die cut pieces were colored, I used a bit of IRIDESCENT GOLD Glimmer Mist to add some shimmery splatters over the ink. This circus card just needed to look like a celebration!

I arranged all the die cut pieces on the front of the card, overlapping them a bit. Then, for my circus animals, I adhered them with foam adhesive. I love adding a little dimension to most of my cards. It adds so much visual interest and sets the images apart from the background.

To finish my card, I added the sentiment on a matted banner strip, as well as some shiny BOTTLE CAP SEQUINS. These sequins are so cool with their iridescent shine and unique shape! They fit perfectly with this bright card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy this new stamp set from BRUTUS MONROE. Don’t forget to stop by the INSPIRATION TEAM‘s blogs to see what they did with this set, as well!

Until next time,
Marie Nicole
