2nd project for my August 2017 Hostess Club - Brayered Lovely as a Tree   
This is the second card we will make in my August 24, 2017 Hostess Club meeting.  

I used a sponge brayer to apply Marina Mist ink to the inside of the Woodland Embossing Folder, as well as stamped the trees directly to the inside of the embossing folder (ef).  For the card on the right I brayered Soft Suede ink on the trees after I took the cardstock out of the ef.  Which is your favorite?  I used a Fine Tip glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds for some added bling.
Want to learn how to make a card like this one and are not a member of my Hostess Club?  Just look on Youtube and search Stampin' Up brayered embossing folder technique.  Don't worry if you don't get this technique down the first time.  My assistant had many, many unique prototypes that we could not use.  

Recipe:
  • The base is 11 x 4 1/4  piece of Real Red, scored at 5 1/2.
  • The Whisper White layer is 5 3/8 x 4 1/8.
  • The Early Espresso layer is 5 1/8 x 4
  • The next piece of Whisper White is 5 x 3 7/8.  
  • The words are stamped on a 3/4 x 4 piece of Whisper White, and are from Hearts Come Home, a stamp set in the 2017 Holiday mini and will be available for purchase on September 1, 2017. The little deer is from a new set called Carols of Christmas, which is available for purchase right now.  
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!

August 24, 2017 Hostess Club Project-Smackin' Acetate and Gourd Goodness

I made my own background with reinkers and by following Gina K's "Smackin' Acetate" video on Youtube, Here.  

Basically, you drop ink on a piece of acetate or a window sheet, smoosh your cardstock in the mixture, and there you have it, your own one-of-a-kind background.  Awesome!!!

All of my wonderful Hostess Club ladies will learn this technique and make this card when they come to my August 24, 2017 meeting.  I'm excited.

I used the stamp set, Gourd Goodness, in the 2017-18 Holiday Mini, and will be available for purchase September 1, 2017.

Recipe:
  • The base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Garden Green, scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Daffodil Delight piece is 5 1/4 x 4. 
  • I used Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, and Peekaboo Peach reinkers on a Window Sheet, and my Thick Whisper White piece is 5 x 3 3/4.
  • I stamped the leaves and pumpkin stems with Garden Green ink, the pumpkins with a Pumpkin Pie ink pad.
  • I used some retired Daffodil Delight seam binding because it looked wonderful with this card, and because I have three rolls of it. 😀 
  • I used the Layering Squares Framelits Dies for the pumpkins.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!
