Sneak Peek! Sale-a-Bration Second Release Painted Season Bundle! Use the beautiful new Painted Season Designer Paper and Painted Season stamp set to repurpose a Stampin’ UP! framelit package!! This set and designer paper bundle is a free gift choice with your $100 Stampin’ UP! order starting on Friday, Feb. 15, 2019!
I hope you will enjoy the video below in this post – I will share all the details of how to repurpose the Stampin’ UP! framelit packaging and decorate it with the Painted Seasons bundle from Stampin’ UP!
I store my Stampin’ UP! framelits on magnet sheets (see this post), so I have lots of left over plastic framelit packages and I have been decorating them and repuposing them to fill with embellishments and give as gifts. The 3 framelit pouches I decorated with the Painted Seasons bundle in this post are for my Luv 2 Stamp group. They are prizes for an extra creative challenge for the month of February. (See This Post for my previous framlelit gift packaging idea for my team)
I stamped and die cut the Painted Seasons flowers and leaves, and spritzed them with Champagne Mist shimmer spray. (Mix rubbing alcohol and Champagne Mist shimmer paint in a Stampin’ Spritzer, shake well and spray). The Painted Seasons Framelits will be available for purchase starting March 1, 2019.
To decorate the framelit package flap, I used Tear & Tape, and added the Painted Season designer paper to the flap, then I die cut a Be Mine Stitched Heart with the Grapefruit Grove Sale-a-Bration foil and embossed that with the Country Floral Embossing Folder (also a free Sale-a-Bration gift choice coming on Feb. 15). I layered the flowers and leaves onto the flap with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the heart. I tied it all up with some Petal Pink Variegated Ribbon.
Below: the inside flap.

Please enjoy my video today with all the details about creating a Brusho Watercolor background and then watch how I used it to die cut the Butterfly Beauty thinlit dies from Stampin’ UP! You’ll see how I made these cards which also feature the Sale-a-Brtation Butterfly Elements!
How to Create a Brusho Watercolor Background:
To help avoid curling, you can tape down the watercolor paper to a piece of cardboard with Washi Tape or painters tape
Place the cardboard with Watercolor paper inside a box, or otherwise protect your work surface
Use a Stampin’ Spritzer or spray bottle and dampen watercolor paper
Add more water and more Brusho until you achieve the desired effect
TIP! Watch the video at the bottom of this post for another tip to protect your work surface when using Brusho!
I created this background and the cards while stamping with Cindee a few months ago, and I’m super excited to finally share these with you! I love the backgrounds and I love how the butterfly cards turned out!
I also decided to spritz water and sprinkle Brusho on the Butterfly elements wood sheets of flowers and butterflies (a free gift choice during Stampin’ Up! 2019 Sale-a-Bration). Let’s say that the yellows, oranges and reds probably turned our better than the blues and greens… those dried a bit too dark.
This is the finished result of our pretty butterfly elements and flowers with the red, orange and yellow Brusho colors.
For my first card, I layered the 2 pieces from the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits, and I elected to have the Brusho detailed die cut piece on top, and die cut a cardstock piece in Pool Party and another one with Daffodil Delight, then add some sponged color and piece them together as my background piece. This will make a lot more sense when you watch the video at the bottom of this post 🙂
Below: Here you can see what I was describing in the photo above.. the sponged Pool Party and Daffodil Delight butterfly die cut cardstock piece is behind the Brusho die cut butterfly piece. I layered them onto a background of Blueberry Bushel cardstock embossed with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder. If you are looking for any of these Stampin’ UP! supplies, please check out my online store here, or go to any of the product photos at the bottom of my blog post to shop online.
Above: I added one of my pretty Brusho Butterfly wood element pieces right in the middle. Mulitpurpose Liquid glue works great for the wood elements.
Below: for this card, I did not layer the butterfly die cut piece, I simply used the single Butterfly Beauty thinlit that I die cut from the Brusho Watercolor background, and added it to my card. The background layers are Daffodil Delight, Garden Green and Blueberry Bushel.
Please enjoy this replay of my Facebook LIve video with instructions for making these cards!
I have a video tutorial today for you in this post with lots of card making tips for creating your own Tea Together Note Cards featuring Stampin’ UP! Floral Romance vellum and Tea Time framelits!!
The tea pots and tea cups from the Tea Together set (#148779) were stamped with StazOn ink onto the beautiful leafy pattern vellum, and die cut with the Sale-a-Bration 2019 Tea Time Framelits!! You can select these framelits as your free Sale-a-Bration gift through March 31, 2019 with your $100 online order!
Each Whisper White Note Card (#131527) has a strip of the Petal Pink floral vellum paper at the bottom (from the Floral Romance designer paper pack), and then the tea pot and/or tea cup and a stamped flower from the Tea Together stamp set that I colored with my Stampin’ Blends markers.
