Brusho Embossed Vellum Lantern – All Star Tutorial Bundle July Blog Hop

Brusho Crystal Colour meets Clear Embossing Powder!



Hello from New Zealand and welcome to this month’s All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team blog hop! It’s hard to believe that it has been six months since I joined the Design Team – time sure does fly when you are having fun!
The team is ready to help you create beautiful handmade projects featuring current products from Stampin’ Up! We have a Tutorial Bundle and a Blog Hop for you.

All Star Tutorial Bundle  

Our Design team and guest designer – Lori Mueller – have created a ‘super bundle’ of 13 tutorials.
This month the bundle contains tutorials for traditional style cards, 3D packaging, fancy fold cards, a mini album, 12×12 scrapbook page and paper crafting techniques! It’s full of fabulous projects you don’t want to miss out on. Here’s a Sneak Peak of what you will receive in the bundle.

The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and will have both metric and imperial (inches) measurements. So no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase these tutorials and use them to create great projects!
The Tutorial Bundle is $NZ20, or place an order over $NZ50 this month with me to receive this month’s tutorial for free. See the details at the end of the post to find out how you can get this exclusive bundle of tutorials.

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

For our Blog hop to celebrate the release of the March Bundle, we will be showcasing a project using some of the same products or techniques that we used in our tutorial.
Remember, these Blog Hop projects are not the same projects as in our tutorial, as the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else.
I’ve used an exciting new technique in my Tutorial Bundle project and in my Blog Hop Project – Heat Embossed Brusho Colour Crystals!
I’ve not seen this technique used anywhere else, so you may just be seeing it here first!
This is a little Sneak peek of my tutorial project which contains all the details on how to combine heat embossing with the vibrant Brusho Colour Crystals.
For our Blog Hop I’ve made a Vellum Lantern using the Window Box Thinlits as my base and top.

The top and bottom hexagon “boxes” are made in Blueberry Bushel and the bottom is sealed shut, but the lid at the hexagon-shaped top opens.

The ribbon around the base is Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon and I’ve tied Pineapple Punch 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the top.
These colours were chosen to coordinate with the embossed Yellow and Brilliant Blue Brusho colours I used in the image. (You can find all the products I used for the project if you scroll to the bottom of the post.)
Here’s the back view:Vellum Lantern with Heat Embossed Brusho Crystal Colour
I originally had three of the Botanical Tags cut out around the base but the lantern looked way too “busy”. So I settled on one at the back against the Pineapple Punch panel. This panel allowed me to join the Vellum without it being seen and also gave the lantern extra stability.
The photos above don’t really show that the images are the Brusho Crystal Colours heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. This is what the Vellum looked like before constructing the lantern.

You can see I scored the Vellum and spaced the scorelines so I had a crease at each of the edges of the hexagon. You can see the score lines and the embossing a little more clearly below.

And if you zoom in a little closer you can see the speckled look of the Brusho Crystals in the Clear Embossing Powder. As the clear powder melts with the heat, the crystals partially dissolve. This results in the yellow and blue mixing in places to be green – as well as leaving some individual crystals visible.

And if you zoom in a little closer you can see such cool patterns!

Of course, a lantern needs light, and a battery tea light can be added from the top.

I was super pleased with the way this all came together and how the final project showcases my new technique really well!
