February 1


I have been working on a lot of things, the HOF, RS Craft day tomorrow, working out (made it to the gym again today!!), and of course cleaning the house....but I actually found time today to stamp. I needed to prep for a brayer class I have this Saturday night so with that focus I came up with some cute brayer cards. This is the one that Maegan liked the best. I used the All about You set as well as a tiny flower from Something sweet. I brayered my glossy paper with pretty in pink and then taped lines using strips of painters tape. Then I brayered over that with the cotton candy. After that dried for almost long enough I took of the tape and stamped the love, hearts and flowers all over the background in the rose red from the cotton candy pad. I stamped the U on another piece of glossy using the middle of the cotton candy pad and just traced around the edges with a regal rose marker to make it pop. It is hard to see, but I rubbed the edges of the paper with the U across the rose red on the CC pad to give it a border. I stamped Love in black and then....I don't know why but...this card yelled for glitter! I don't usually use a lot of glitter because it gets in my eyes and everywhere else, but this card was really askin for it! So I used the 2-way glue pen to "color" over the U everywhere except where the Love was. Then, I tied it all up with my absoulte Favorite ribbon, the black gingham and popped some dimensionals on the back of the U and voila! Done! Hope you all like it! If you want to see more brayering ideas...pop on over! Now....if I can just figure out how to get these images on here better....

totally cut card! I love the cotton candy pad! And this is one of my favorite stamp sets. I've been ignoring it during SAB though. I think it's time to pull it out and case your card! Thanks
