Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop - July Subscription Items

Hello to all the Arties coming by today! Welcome to Del & Artie and the weekly B|M Inspiration Team Blog Hop! The team features the Brutus Monroe subscription items across the blog hop this week. I chose the stencil of the month!

Every month, the Brutus Monroe will ship a beautiful stencil to your door for $8. It’s an great value and it includes shipping.

To create today’s card, I began by die cutting the hello three times from white cardstock. Then I stacked them together using liquid adhesive.

Gina K Stenciled Frame Card

Hello to my dear Arties!! Welcome to the blog today. For Father’s Day I received a gift from my wife — a shopping trip to Gina K’s website! So I chatted a minute with the legend herself for a bit, asking what she thought I should grab. And without hesitation, she recommended the stencils.

I chose the Autumn Sunrise stamp set and a greeting from the Feathered Friends stamp set for my card today.

Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop - ATCs

Trinity Stamps June 2019 Release

Hey everyone!! Today, Trinity Stamps celebrates their one year anniversary! Woohooo!!! Taniesa Vlasak is building a fantastic company because she’s a fantastic human being. And I have the honor of playing with the Ocean themed stamps and stencil in this release. I wanted to show them off here at Del & Artie. These stencils absolutely thrilled me. I can’t say enough good things about them. They have movement, depths, variety and they come with the positives and negative images.

Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop - Color Crush 3

Of course, I wanted to do an ink blended background, seeing as it’s one of my favorite techniques. For Christmas I received the Picket Fence Life-Changing Blender Brushes. And I am thrilled with them. But I needed a set to use just with my Surface Inks because they are a different ink formulation from water-reactive inks like Catherine Pooler Inks or Distress Inks. Surface Inks are permanent once dried which is a fantastic

Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop - Recreate

Hello there to all the Arties hanging out with me today on the blog hop! What an honor to have you all visiting my post for the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop. This week, the team features RECREATIONS of cards other team members have made.

If you watch Sneaky Pete on Amazon Prime, Season 3 involves art counterfeiting. So I kind of felt like a real confidence man as I created the card for this post. I chose Jessica Francisco’s koi fish card from December 31, 2018. I really enjoyed how the white and gold bounced off the dark blue cardstock to create a stark contrast.

Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop - Anything Goes 2

Hey there! Welcome to Del and Artie’s entry in the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop! This week it’s anything goes and I have chosen my favorite medium—Aqua Pigments. If you have yet to try Aqua Pigments, you have to know life is not complete. (Totally kidding, but kinda not!) Aqua Pigments from Brutus Monroe offer a wide array of brilliant, highly pigmented liquid watercolors that you can water down or color with at full strength.

Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop - Foiling

Welcome to my stop on B|M Inspiration Team Blog Hop, today! This week we feature foiling as a technique with products from the latest Brutus Monroe and Therm O Web collaboration.

I spent an hour a few weeks ago making foiled backgrounds. Little by little I have been incorporating them in my projects since. The fun comes in when I imagine the background in a creative way. This week, as Christopher’s Kaleidoscope toner sheet, foiled with his Green Sketched Foil had me mesmerized, I imagined it was the aurora borealis. So I decided to make an arctic scene with the foil in the sky.
