Stamparatus Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the official Stampin' Up Stamparatus Blog Hop! I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful group. If you've been following me for a while, you've probably seen me use the Stamparatus quite a bit. Since receiving it, it's became a staple in almost every project I make!

I decided to show you my favorite use for the Stamparatus- Background stamps! The Stamparatus makes stamping with these large stamps so easy! You can rein and stamp it several times to create a dark solid image. In my project today, I not only stamped it in black, but also in Versamark to create a "sheen" across the whole image.
Because I was using the motorcycle as my focal point, I wanted a background that coordinates. I thought the marbled background could give us the look of oil you might see on the floor of a garage! Below is the photo I used for inspiration. 

Unfortunately, I just could not capture the shiny texture with my camera. But, you'll be able to see it better int he video hopefully. 

I love to use the Stamparatus for background stamps, but as you've seen in this hop, there are many other ways to use this amazing tool. I also used it to create movement with my motorcycle and to stamp my sentiment. 

Video Direct Link:

This is a great "dude" card and is a great project to try out several different uses of your Stamparatus. I hope you enjoyed it and will give it a try! 

If you'd like to see more posts I've created using the Stamparatus, you click here and scroll through all of them (this post will be the first post that comes up.) You can also check out Stampin' Up's Pinterest Page with some great Stamparatus videos and projects. Remember, this tool won't be available until June 1st! I highly recommend you put it on your first new catalog order that day! 

Alright, it's time for you to hop along to the next wonderful Demonstrator who happens to be Jacque Williams! 

Here is the official Blog Roll of all those participating in this blog hop:

Brusho Punch Art

Hello everyone! I have quite a bit to share with you today! On Friday's Facebook Live, I told you how I had made a special gift tag for my friend Kay Cogbill. Well, that one tag kind of opened the flood gates for me and Brusho! I have been slow to warm up to the watercolor crystals, but I finally found my groove and couldn't stop making these really fun punch art shapes using the Brusho backgrounds. 

Here is the original tag I mad for Kay's little gift. 

And here are all the others I made that day! 

 Some were more red.

Some were a mix. 

 Some were more coral.

Some were blue! 

And some were yellow! All punched from backgrounds I had created with different mixes of Brusho. 

So, I wanted to showcase how fun this is on Facebook Friday and I designed this card, using the Butterfly Framelits. But, sadly, before I could go live- they sold out! 

So, I changed it slightly and went back to the flowers. And that is the video you can see here today! 

You can find all the supplies here:
