One of my favourite WOW sessions at Convention was from Paula Dobson - she used the brayer to do the 'bouncing brayer' technique and I loved it! I couldn't wait to try it out for myself, so my stamp club - mainly made up of my team - and I spent the night getting inky!
This first sample is a direct copy of a card she made that didn't make it as a sample for convention (I copied it as I loved it - why mess with perfection??) Check out her version here.
I used Early Espresso cardstock (121686), Whisper White cardstock (106549), Daffodil Delight inkpad (126944), More Mustard inkpad (126964) -which is a retiring colour - , Pumpkin Pie inkpad (126945), the little owl from the Aviary stampset (122051), Bird Builder punch (117191), 2.5cm circle punch (119868), the brayer (102395),white embossing powder (109132), Petite Pairs stampset (122497), and snail to stick it all down (104332).
What do you think? Isn't it cute?
This next one is a simple little bookmark - I was lucky to keep this one away from my 9 year old daughter - she loves it and wants me to make one for each child in her class - that's 32 bookmarks! - maybe I can do it as the 'end-of-term gift' thingy I do each term? If I stick a little wrapped lolly to the bottom, it should be a hit!!
She hasn't posted her original of this sample, but click here to go to her blog. I adored this one too so once again not messing with perfection, copied it straight out.
I used Perfect Plum cardstock (108615), Whisper White cardstock (106549), the brayer (102395), 2.5cm circle punch (119868), Bird Builder punch (117191), rhinestones (119246), Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon (122975), White Bakers Twine (124262), Pool Party inkpad (126982), Perfect Plum inkpad (126963), Elegant Eggplant inkpad (126969), Aviary stamp set (122051), corner rounder punch (119871), Petite Pairs stamp set (122497), and snail to stick it all down (104332).
How cute is it? She is just a really clever stamper!
