My Brayer & Stampin’ Up! Autumn Days

This is my very first ever attempt at using the brayer to make a background scene. Okay. So , I need some more practice. But I’d say it’s not too shabby for my first attempt. I had a lot of fun with it… That’s what counts. . . . . Right?

Cardstock:  Always Artichoke , Bravo Burgundy, Really Rust and Whisper White 

Ink: More Mustard, So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Night Of Navy and Ruby Red

I also added some linen thread.  I could have went on to add a brad, button or hardware.  maybe I will. looking at it . . seems it could use that added touch.

heart the perfect details texture plate as well. I just spritzed up the cardstock with alcohol before running it through my big shot. It really makes a difference.

Thanks a bunch for looking !



Mojo Monday #97 Bronc Buster


I tried to go with a masculine look this  time around.  step out of my box a little bit. It was harder than I thought it would be. I kept wanting to bling and pretty it up. I think If I were to do this again I would choose brighter happier colors.   If I find the time in the next couple of day’s I may try this sketch again.

I used CTMH paper ( bamboo ) Stamp sets:  Bronc Buster,Fresh Fillers & A Little Something . Ink : staz on  I used the staz on to color my Hodgepodge hardware piece ( it works great) then I dusted off my sewing machine and stitched around a bit.  I also stamped the fresh fillers around the bottom half of the card. and added a couple of big brads.

thanks for looking.  If you’ve never been. You really should check out the sketches over at Mojo Monday . Once you get started with their sketches. It becomes quite addictive.  You’ll find yourself  looking forward to Monday’s!

Have a super fantastic day!


And Many Mower

And Many Mower

Many Mower Stamp Set, Rainbow Sherbet Designers Series paper , basic Black Cardstock , Circle Punches and the stamp-a-ma-jig were used for this card. I colored the picture in with the aqua painter and stampin’ Up! ink pads.

I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to make the words fit in the circle, instead of straight across.

thanks a lot for looking and have a happy day!


Stampin Up Nature Silhouettes


This Stampin Up stamp set  Nature Silhouettes should come in handy for the masculine cards I need to get made. This is my very first attempt. I’ll have to play around with the stamps and see what I can come up with. This was quick and very easy. I made the background with a stipple brush and punched out a circle so I could stipple around it in order to get the moon.  I used the stampin up colors basic black and basic gray . the cardstock is basic black. I added a few brads and some pattern paper.
