Hello, good to see you here. The Inspiration team at Brutus Monroe have come together again to showcase a wide range of projects using the fabulous Sweet Pops stamp set. The characters in this set are so fun that I decided to use them on their own rather than as a ‘sweet pop’ becuase they are just so adorable!! I created two cards with the same layout and technique and they came together in no time!

Sweet Pops Stamp Card Details
To start off I stamped the little bird 6 times in Raven detailed ink. Once dry, you can watercolour with this ink which is fantastic. I used my Zig Clean Colour Brush markers and a waterbrush to colour in the birds. When they were dry I die cut these out with my Silhouette Cameo, but you can easily dussy cut these out.
To create the card panel background, I used 3 distress oxides – Broken china, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans. I used blending brushes for this to get a soft look that fades out, but you can use the ink blending tool with foam applicators too. To create the look, I blended from the middle outwards in a circular motion. I added a few water droplets which I them soaked up with a paper towel for some variation in the background.
To assemble the card, I foam mounted the birds onto the centre of the panel in a pyramid. I had an idea in my head they were a group of cheerleaders coming to say thank you! I stamped a sentiment in Raven detail ink and forma mounted onto the card panel which was also foam mounted onto a 5″ square white card base. Lastly, I embellished with some Tonic nuvo drops.
Fro the second card, I repeated the process in the same way but changed the colours. I love the bold vibrancy of these carrots! For the background I used Fossilized amber, Spice MArmalade and Abandoned coral distress oxides.
The sentiment was offset to one side and I added some black bakers twine for embellishment. I love the contrast between the black and the orange!
