Galaxy Powders with LOTS of projects + video!🚀⭐

Hello there friends!  I’m a tad late with my post today, but I ended up hurting my shoulder and it was a bit hard to get on the computer to type things up! LOL!  I tihnk I’ll be able to recover a bit over the weekend…I hope anyway!

So today, I’ve pulled out some media that I hadn’t gotten a chance to REALLY play with until now.  I had so much fun and decided to turn on my camera and do a video with it as well!  (I’m a bit rusty with video making as I haven’t done one for a while and hope to do some more in the near future!)

Here’s my play with the Brutus Monroe Galaxy Powders:

Vicki-BRMSpaceATCs

My first of projects here are ATCs!  Do you remember back in the day for the “older crafters” that we use to trade those ATCs at conventions and such?!  I loved getting them from people from other countries!  ATCs (aka: Artist Trading Cards) are 2.5″ x 3.5″ with info on the back to trade with other artists.  You could even transform these to place on regular cards, etc. which I’ve done before too!

I’ve taken a piece of Midnight cardstock and started playing around with these Galaxy Powders and also used the fun ATC kit for the chipboard backs and the rocket details.

To show how the Galaxy powders work up close, check out my video below!  I started by making the backgrounds and then I worked each background into finished projects…CLICK HERE if you want to see it on You Tube or just watch it below:

Sometimes it’s fun to sit and just have fun playing around getting crafty!  I just got my July Inspiration Box (card kit) from Brutus Monroe and plan on doing the same thing with that too very soon!  So I hope you’ll come back and subscribe to my video channel to watch and see what projects I come up with for it!  I may have something special planned for my viewers too!😉

And for this card, I’ve taken the Brutus Monroe High Tide stencil and went over it on Raven cardstock and brushed over it with the Galaxy Powders.

I’ve used this gorgeous butterfly from the Brutus Monroe 3×4 Take Flight stamp set and attached it over the panel along with the sentiments.  That Mirrorstock paper is really stunning and a little bit goes a long way with that!  (You can check out my video for full instruction on how I put this card together too!)

My last project here shows how I’ve used the Galaxy Powders over a stamp!  I’ve used the 3×4 Brutus Monroe Smile On stamp set for that.  It’s hard to see in the photo the pretty shine on it, so be sure to catch the video to see it in action!  I used a white pencil to highlight some details on the image too.

I used a stitched rectangle die to cut it out and then used a stitched scallop rectangle die to cut out a piece of Alabaster cardstock to layer behind it.  I used Lunchbag cardstock for the A2 sized card base panel and then used the Embossing Ink to randomly stamp the “smile face” image for the background from the So Emotional 3×4 stamp set.

I also layered on a piece of the Sequin Sheets…very cool…between the layers of the sentiment panel and white scallop layered panel to attach to my card and then I used some metallic clear ribbon over that along with a bow before popping up my main image panel with foam tape.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my projects today along with my video on the review of the Galaxy Powders and learned a few things about them!  If there is anything in particular that you’d like to learn more about in a video, please let me know!

Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you again soon!

  9. What an awesome collection you have made (I still have to watch the video) after Cinderella chores are done. I always enjoy your videos. I need to make a few ATCs as you can always use them for focal images on a card. Great collection as always. Have a great Sunday.

  13. It really would be too obvious and too much to say that your first 3 cards are out of this world, so I’m not going to say it. lol But I do love the sparkle on all of the cards, Vicki! I’m going to have to try those Galaxy Powders.

  14. I was almost afraid of reading your post.. more stuff I seem to “need” (want). I was especially drawn to your ATCs, I love how the colors stand out from the background. And the moons/planets got such a great surface to look genuine. Much to admire in this post:)
