Stamp Club February 2016

I demonstrated this card using the Distressed Glue technique.  I put a few drops of Crystal Effects on white card stock, spread it with my finger, and let it dry.  Then I sponged different colors on it, and rubbed it with a paper towel.

The next card uses the Bouncing Brayer technique.  You can ink up your brayer, put one edge in the middle, and bounce/turn the card for a sun/starburst effect.  You have to keep the edge of the brayer in the center of the card stock (which is not as easy as it sounds!)!!

Or, you can bounce the brayer up and down the card stock.  

You can make your own ink pad for multiple colors.  Use a baby wipe, and put 2-4 different reinkers on it.  Run the brayer across the baby wipe so the color is on the brayer.

You can also bounce in 2 different colors!  I wanted blue and a green stripes on this card, so I bounced with blue, then again with green.

If the color is too dark, roll your brayer over scrap paper once to get rid of some of the ink (like stamping off, but with a brayer!).

The next card is an easel card.  I love how is lays flat to mail, but stands up for display!  The glitter tape is a new Sale-A-Bration choice, available until March 31, 2016.

The last card we made uses Corrugated Paper and the Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers.  Did you know that you can put the epoxy heart on the card stock and THEN punch them both out together?!  Much easier than trying to line them up!  I attached the Corrugated Paper to a piece of white card stock first so I could line them up better, and snipped off the parts that didn't line up quite right.

Happy Stamping!
