Trendy Trees Rock N Roll Technique

Sure wish the leaves were still on the trees!  They have been gone for a while.  Over the summer, I joined a swap where stampers created One Sheet Wonders – this is one of my favorites!

The focal image is a 2-step stamp set called Trendy Trees.   When stamping the leaf portion, I first inked the stamp in More Mustard, and then I rolled the edges in Cajun Craze.  This is a technique called rock and roll.

Autumn Harvest Fossil Stone

Fossil stone is a fabulously easy technique you can create with very few supplies.

  • Plastic Card Protector Sleeve (sides cut)
  • 2 Coordinating Inkpads
  • 2 Pieces of Glossy Paper
  • Brayer
  1. Open card protector sleeve.  With an open inkpad, smoosh one ink on the inside of each sleeve side.
  2. Put the glossy paper pieces back to back with the glossy sides on the outside.
  3. Put in sleeve and flip the top sleeve side down.
  4. Rub the brayer back and forth.
  5. Lift off the top part of the sleeve and set pieces aside to dry (a minute or two).
  6. Use as a background or stamp on top of it!

Here is an example of a card using this technique:

I also used the new waffle paper and antique brads.  On the Cajun Craze layer, I sprayed some Shimmer Spray.
