Revisiting the "Brayering Technique"

Happy Weekend Friends!

I came across this card that I made some time back, and thought I'd post the "Brayering Technique" I used on it.  For some reason, brayering has never come easy to me, but this card turned out the way I think brayering should look.  lol

Mr. Mark, from Stamp A Mania stamps likes to tease me about the brayering technique.  If I can't do it so that it looks really good, I'm not happy, ask Mark.   I have to tell you, one year I got the flu when I was supposed to demo the brayering technique for Mark & Cynthia at stamp convention.  Dear Hubby said "I've watched you enough, I can do that, and I'll go to convention and demo!"  Well, you could have knocked me over with a feather....never thought I'd hear those words come out of his mouth.  He went, did the demo all day, and sold lots of product for Stamp A Mania.  Mark said the second day of convention, the ladies returned to the booth and kept asking "where's Randy…

An ATC and a Card - Topic was "Metal"

Hi Friends,

Today I'm sharing an ATC and a card.  One of the women in our group wanted cards, not ATC's, so I was making her a card with the ATC I'd made.  It's pretty easy to incorporate an ATC into a card design.   Here's what I came up with for both.

The topic was "metal."  I used aluminum tape for my metal.  You can see where part of the tape came a apart a bit when I ran it thru the embossing folder.  It's okay tho.....not a biggie.  I suppose I could have gone and looked for mirror paper, but ran out of time.   I think that's what it's called.  Anyway, embossed the tape, punched out a turquoise butterfly with glitter paper, backed both the ATC and butterfly in black.

      Here's the ATC

Here's the card.  I used the same embossing folder for the turquoise paper, and found a piece of paper with some brown and turquoise swirly pattern.  So here's the card made with the ATC.   The card size is an A7 (5" x 7").  Kinda hard …

A Get Well Card for Winnie

Happy Easter Blog Friends!

I didn't get an Easter card photographed in time to put on the blog today, but did find a bunny to post.

This is a card I made for my friend in New York City ..... Winnie.  Glad you're feeling much better these days, my friend.

The stamp is by Stampendous/House Mouse.  Love their stamps.  Colored up with Copics.  I used some scrap paper from my stash for the background.  The tiny "get well wishes" stamp is from SU, and I attached the words with tiny brads.  I punched the little flowers with a punch, and used another punch for the grass and leaves behind the flowers.  Tiny gems are in the center of the flowers.

Wishing you and yours a very Blessed Easter!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Until next time.....
