STRENGTH & HOPE, BRAYING TECHNIQUE, INSPIRED BY STAMPIN'

Today, I used the new Strength & Hope stamp set. I absolutely love this set. Stampin’ Up! is donating $2 from your purchase of this set to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Please click here to view the items. I stamped my sentiment using Perfect Plum. I then stamped my frame image using a Pale Plum SU! Marker. Both the 3-1/2” & 3” Original Die circles are carry over items from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I gently cut out my butterflies and then added Pearls to them. I new bow technique for you! Super Duper excited! I will be showing you another “how to video” on Thursday!

    By the way I forgot to mention this on my other post, but you mentioned on the brayer that you are using the rubber one. Are there different ones to order. In the catalog it does not show different attachments. Thanks

    Good Morning Joanna! I LOVE your tutorial this morning of brayering on embossed images. I have a question for you: How do you clean your brayer when you’re finished with it? What’s the best way to keep it clean after brayering and getting all of the ink off of it? Thanks for sharing – I love your daily blogs!

  21. Susie Smith says:

    Love the card and the brayer tutorial. Does the brayer clean up easily with Stampin’ mist clearner?
