Stamp Club

Tonight was my monthly Stamp Club meeting and these are the two cards we created. I just purchased a brayer because I wanted to be able to try these techniques.

I am loving these SU! Big Shot Embossing Folders, it seems like I use them on all my cards lately.

In the first card I used the Tropical Party Stamp Set form the Occasions Mini Catalog. The sky is brayered with Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, and Night of Navy, for the sand I used Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake. Card stock: Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand, Early Espresso, and Whisper White.

Now for the second card I used one of my favorite new stamp sets in the new catalog, Just Believe. I received it in my Stampin' Up! convention bag, whoo who!!! Anyway I embossed the crumb cake card stock and then used the brayer to apply the Early Espresso Ink. I used Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, & Very Vanilla card stock.

I am looking forward to using the brayer techniques over and over again.

Dear Rose, Those 2 cards are stunning. I love them. I never tried that technique before. But I might have to right now :) I am not sure if I told you before. But I love your blog and your love for God. It is inspiring. :) Thanks for your little note on my post today. It means a lot to me.
Thansk and take care, Pauline
