Crop and Create Event 7 - Brutus Monroe

This is post 7 for the Crop and Create Card Making Event - featuring Brutus Monroe products. 

This was not a formal class but a quick learn session. The products included a large stamp set with a coordinating die and stencil. There were also two sheets of mixed coloured patterned paper included. 

The leaves on the Kraft tree were die cut from the mixed coloured cardstock. There are a bunch of tiny leaf images in this stamp set and for the card on the left, it was suggested to simply place the stamps on our fingertips and ink and stamp them that way. It was SO much faster and easier than using blocks! 

The stencilled tree was stamped first and then stencilled in various fall colours. The edge around that card was created using the roots part of the stencil around the edge of the card - such a neat idea! 

Products used are as follows:

Paper: White Cardstock (Hammermill), Kraft Cardstock, Patterned Paper ( Brutus Monroe)

Stamps: Tree of Life plus dies and stencil

Inks: Premium Black Ink (Gina K. Designs), Marigold, Clementine, Persimmon, Candy Apple, Grassy Knoll (all Pink Fresh Studio) 

Accessories: Foam Tape
