Brayer Dry Embossing

September 23, 2017

Here is another technique card I made for my Technique Class which will be held in October.  You can check out my Classes and Workshops page to get more details.  For this card, I used Always Artichoke ink to cover the Petal Burst Embossing Folder and then embossed Whisper White card.  I love how this technique really shows off the detail in the embossed panel.  I punched a strip of Always Artichoke card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind one long edge of the embossed card before attaching to Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Best Birds stamp set onto the bottom right hand corner using Always Artichoke ink.  The Whisper White card is attached to scored and folded Crushed Curry card.  I stamped the stem images from the Daisy Delight stamp set onto Whisper White card and cut out the image using the second largest oval in the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  I attached the stamped oval to an Always Artichoke scalloped oval cut using the same Framelits Dies.  The panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped two daisy images onto Whisper White card using Crushed Curry ink and punched them out with the matching Daisy Punch.  I cut one daisy into two sections, one with three petals and one with two petals.  The pieces are attached on top of each other and then I used Glue Dots to attach them to the top of one of the stamped flower stems.  The second flower I cut into two sections, one with four petals and the other with three petals.  The pieces are once more attached to each other and then the card front using Glue Dots.  I stamped the flower centre onto Whisper White card using Crushed Curry ink and punched out the image using the 1/2″ Circle Punch The flower centres are attached to each of the flowers and then just for fun I added a large Clear Faceted Gem as well.

To decorate the inside of the card, I once more embossed a piece of Whisper White card using Always Artichoke ink and attached a piece of Always Artichoke card punched with the Decorative Border Punch behind one long edge.  I stamped another daisy onto Whisper White card using Crushed Curry ink and punched it out.  This flower is cut into two sections, each with four petals before being attached over the embossed card.  I stamped the flower centre once more using Crushed Curry ink and punched it out and attached to the flower.

What a fun technique!  I actually held this Technique Class yesterday for some ladies who can’t come in October and we all got a little inky but everyone enjoyed learning how to get more from one embossing folder.   I am so looking forward to holding more of these classes.  Hope you can make it too.

Bye for now,
