Brayer Oriental Beauty…


Hello, Lakeside Stampers!


This card was made using a fast technique. While the end result might look complicated the technique itself is not. You can use any combinations of inks, card stocks and designer series papers for this. If you want a dramatic look try Basic Black Ink on your Brayer.



I cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ of one of the new Stampin’ Up! In-Colors, Pear Pizzazz Card Stock, and scored it at 4-1/4″.


On the Pear Pizzazz Card Stock, 1/2″ up from the bottom and each side I stamped the block image from the Dream Garden Stamp Set in Versa Mark, sprinkled on Gold Embossing Powder and set it with my Heat Tool.


On a 3′ x 3-1/2′ piece of Peach Parfait Card Stock I stamped the oriental lady in Versa Mark, sprinkled on Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool


I lightly inked my Brayer with Soft Suede Ink and rolled it over the oriental lady stamped image. Because she was embossed with Clear Embossing Powder she will resist the ink.


 With my 1-1/4″ Circle Punch I punched out a circle from a Post-It and placed it over the head and part of her shoulders. I re-inked my Brayer and rolled over the image and Post-It. Here is what I did. I used another color so it would show up better.

DSC_0681  When you remove the Post-It the area it colored will be lighter and create a moon silhouette as shown here.


I removed the Post-It and gently wiped the stamped lady image and tore the edges.

If you tear the card stock towards you, you’ll get a Peach Parfait border and if you tear the card stock away from you, you’ll only have the Soft Suede showing. It really is preference. I wanted the Peach Parfait to shoe for contrast.


I adhered the stamped lady image onto a 3-1/4″ x 3-3/4″  piece of Brushed Gold Paper and mounted both onto the Pear Pizzazz card.


As ever thanks for stopping by. Look for new and fun offers coming to “Lakeside Stamper” soon!
