Winter Woods by Stampin' Up! | Brusho Technique
Hello Inkredible Friends!
I’m so excited today to collaborate with two other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators to bring you a ‘YouTube’ hop today that you won’t want to miss! All of today’s projects come from the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog and I’ll include the links to those videos below; be sure and ‘hop over to those two other videos. The project I’m sharing today is using Winter Woods by Stampin’ Up! | Brusho Technique. If you have not had a chance to use these watercolor crystals (aka Brusho Crystal Colour page 202 in the Annual Stampin’ Up! catalog) then you’ll love seeing how easy they are to use.
If you’d like to order any of the products in today’s project you can simply click on any image below in the product list or click here. Be sure to use the current host code XG3UZEBN unless your order total is $150 or more. If your order totals $150 or more you will want to use the Stampin’ Rewards on your own order.
ALL orders of $50 or more (as long as you allow Stampin’ Up! to share your contact information with me in the checkout process) will receive a special gift in the mail from me!

Cut card base 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” scored at 4 1/4”
Cut Old Olive layer 5 3/8” x 4 1/8” and another at 3 1/8” x 2 1/8”
Crumb Cake layer 5 1/2” x 4 Emboss using the Woodland Textures embossing folder
Cut a piece of watercolor paper 3 1/2” x 2 1/2”
Cut Very Vanilla 5 1/4” x 4” and you’ll need a scrap piece for your sentiment
1) On the watercolor paper stamp the image using memento black ink.
2) Lightly tap some of the different brusho crystals onto the trees where leaves and colors would naturally appear. Using your spritzer filled with water or a combination of rubbing alcohol & water (the rubbing alcohol dries faster) spritz from about 6-8 inches away until the brusho crystals start to ‘melt’ and spread color. Set aside and let this piece fully dry.
3) Adhere the embossed panel to the Old Olive layer and then center this onto the front of your card base.
4) Take a piece of the copper trim and wrap it around the bottom of the watercolor panel and attach with glue dots. Then adhere this to the 3 1/8” x 2 1/8” Old Olive layer. Attach dimensionals on the back of the panel and place on the card front where desired.
5) Stamp the sentiment on a scrap piece of very vanilla in Old Olive Ink and trim to size. Place a piece of washi tape on the card front in lower left corner; you want the washi tape to be slightly longer than the sentiment. Place dimensionals on the back of the sentiment and adhere on top of the washi tape.
