Hello, friends! Have you seen the new stamps from Brutus Monroe? The June release was their biggest release yet! There are many new and exciting stamps, as well as a number of additional items. Go check it out if you haven’t yet!
I am playing with the new stamp set, Paper Cranes, today! I love the simple lines on this set, and Im sure this image would look fantastic any way you choose to use it. Today, I am sharing how I stamped it on all these hexagon die cuts and layered them to get one, continuous image.
First, I ink blended a background using my Surface Inks. I used the colors Zest, Apricot, Evening Sky (a Pink and Main color), and Sunny Sky (another Pink and Main). I then used my hexagon dies to cut out as many ink blended shapes as I could in varying sizes.
Next, I trimmed down a panel of white cardstock to create an A10 sized card. An A10 is 4×9, so my front panel was slightly smaller at 3.75×8.75. This gave just a quarter inch border around the edge.
I arranged all my hexagon pieces on the front of the card panel the way I wanted them to be arranged. I then applied some low-tack, temporary adhesive to the back of the hexagons. This way, I could stamp over all of them without them shifting around.
I placed my card panel in my Misti and stamped the Paper Cranes stamp over them using Detail ink.
Once my cranes were stamped, I carefully picked up the hexagons one at a time and adhered them down. I made sure to keep them all exactly where I had them when I stamped over them. This way, all the cranes still lined up and were right in place where they were supposed to be. Some of the hexagons I popped up with foam adhesive.
To finish this card, I added a few gold sequins, and brushed the paper cranes with my gold shimmer Midas Aqua Pen from Tonic!
I love the continuing image of the birds over all the hexagons, even when some are popped up on foam adhesive!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed a look at this new stamp set from Brutus Monroe. If you are interested at all in any of the products I used for this card, I have them listed down below!
Until next time,
