Brayered Specialty Paper

Last night was Technique Tuesday Stamp Class!  Somethings that can be easily overlooked in the Stampin’ Up! catalog are the many kinds of designer papers.  There are lots to choose from to be sure!  Here is a picture of one example of the Bride Specialty Paper (there are two designs – one is this swirl; the other is a stripe):

Although very pretty, it may not jump out at you in the catalog.  At last night’s class, I showed my stampers a great WOW technique – Brayered Specialty Paper. It works best with the Bride paper (white) and the Bridesmaid paper (vanilla), but it doesn’t work with the Groom paper as it is BLACK.  Just by using your brayer/inkpad/soft cloth (to remove excess ink from the glossy parts), you can customize the specialty paper to whatever color you want!  That same paper now coordinates with my Rich Razzleberry cardstock!  I even brayered an extra piece for my punches!

This was definitely the favorite card last night!  I hope you like it too!

All About Men Valentine Card

My customers made this card during my All About Men Stamp Camp last week.  I actually tweaked it a bit and added gold brads on the Real Red piece about the heart corner punch.  This card had pizzazz, but is was not too froo-froo for a male recipient.

The glittery Sending Love DSP is to die for!  I can’t wait to use it all up!  That heart corner punch is darling too!  I absolutely love the font of Whimsical Words.  I am hoping to see more of this style in next year’s catalog.

I enjoy hosting an All About Men Stamp Camp each year.  Most of my customers find it difficult to stamp for the men in their lives.  As I told my stampers, even a floral stamp set can be used to create a masculine-themed card if they plan their colors accordingly.
