Brayered Background Technique with Wandering Words Stamp Set

Catherine Projects, Techniques, Videos


Hello Stamper Friends!  I wanted to showcase a few of Stampin' Up's Holiday  Mini Catalog stamp sets before they're not available anymore…get them through January 4!

If you look closely, or maybe not so closely, you will see that I should have taken my own advice!  I stamped the main image with Black Craft Ink, which takes a while to dry.  You can heat set it, pour clear or black embossing powder on it and heat it, or you can be patient.  I chose none of the above, thus a smeared card!  yikes!

I had fun working with Stampin' Up's glossy cardstock, my brayer and 2 different pink ink colors.  You'll see on the video, the first AND the second try didn't work out too well.  The third time was a charm!

I also finished it up with a ribbon and the new Jewelry Tag Punch and stamps from Tiny Tags Stamp Set, available in the Occasions Mini Catalog, premiering January 5.  Hint:  stamp the tag outline, then use your 1/16″ hole punch to make a hole, THEN punch it out with the tag punch.  It would be tough to put a tiny hole through the tag once it's already punched out!
