*Brushed* Blog Hop!

Welcome to our BLOG HOP!
Today, my creative Close to my Heart
 consultant friends and I
are sharing what we've created
using the "Bring Back my Pack"
BRUSHED special paper
collection and stamp sets!

If you just arrived here from
then you are on the right track.

I absolutely LOVE the beautifully vibrant color
combination options afforded by this updated paper collection!
To make these five standard-sized cards,
I used Archival Black, Canary, Green Apple, Lagoon, 
Pixie, and Smoothie ink pads. If you look closely, you might
notice that I included a little bit of (black) heat embossing
on the "Dream Big" card. I also "stamped on vellum" 
the large black butterfly on the "Life is Beautiful" card.
I used the instruction sheet from the Aurora Cardmaking
Workshop Kit (G1205) as my design inspiration for four of
the cards (as you can see from the images shown below).
I really love that our workshop kit instructions can be
utilized so easily with other papers and stamp sets. I love the creative process of tweaking the designs a little, so they can work with other materials, as I have demonstrated below.

The 5th and final card design (shown above) was 
by a square-shaped card I found on Pinterest that was
designed by Jody Gustafson back in August of 2014.
Thank you Jody for the creative inspiration!

Now you can continue on with the blog hop
and be inspired by more creativity using this 
collection by visiting BRENDA's BLOG next!

These are all so pretty - and I love that you took existing sketches and used them for a completely different paper pack. I will be sharing this post with some friends who are looking for ideas to do just what you did with the sketches! Lovely work :)
