Brutus Monroe Decorative Details Inspiration Team Blog Hop

Hello friends!  It’s time for the Brutus Monroe Inspirational Team blog hop today and we’re focusing on the “Decorative Details” line of products to share on our creations.

I am a huge fan of putting “details” on my creations for sure!  There are so many to choose from and sometimes it’s hard to keep from getting them all!  LOL!

For my card today I’ve used a decorative detail (acrylic bubbles) that is one of my faves to use on pretty much ANY style of creation you’re making and here you can see why:


Fall is certainly my most favorite time of the year and I really enjoy creating with all of the fun Autumn style products especially the ones that have just came out from Brutus Monroe.  The wreath and sentiment that I’ve used are from the new Fall Y’All stamp set and I’ve cut it out using the Fall Y’All Cut File that you can get for your cutting machine.  I have a Cricut so I’ve used that to cut it out with.  (Don’t forget that if you’re a subscriber to one of the monthly subscriptions, you can grab that cut file for free!)

Now that cut file does NOT cut out the center of the wreath, so I just poked my scissors in the center of it that made a large enough hole so that I could fussy cut around the inside of it.    The cut file will also cut around for your sentiment.

The base of the card is an A2 top folding Macchiato cardstock (a fave brown color of mine especially for the Autumn theme!)  I took a couple of the leaf images from the Autumn Essentials stamp set and heat embossed a couple of them on the card base with the Gilded EP.

I then glued on the cut out wreath image, popped up the sentiment in the center with foam tape and also added some gold thread behind it before attaching.  I took some alabaster ink and sponged around the edges of the card base and then finally attached the acrylic bubbles over the card.


Here’s a closer look at the image and how I’ve got it colored in.  I’ve used Copic markers to color it along with the leaves on the sentiment.  I also took some distress ink and sponged around the edges of the cut images.

For the sentiment, I first stamped it with the raven detail ink and then cleaned off the stamp and then stamped it again with the embossing ink.  I sprinkled the Gilded EP over the sentiment and then brushed off the EP on the leaf areas as I didn’t want those embossed.  I heat set only the wording.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my creation today and were inspired in some way!

  7. What a beautiful autumn card – I love the “threads” – I really struggle with using thread as I want it to be “perfect” and I don’t think it is supposed to be. Lovely wreath.
