Bouncing Brayers

Just recently I saw a gorgeous card that used the 'bouncing brayer" technique. Of course I had to google it and find out how to do it and saw many beautiful examples.  Thursday night the Cardologists played with brayers making lots of backgrounds.  Suzanne had made some delicious chocolate orange cookies for our dessert but couldn't join us.  (So sad)  But Suzanne, we didn't finish one card!  As soon as we heard the roads were icing up we closed up and hit the road. 

I made a card tonight with one of my backgrounds.  In my rush to post it and get to bed before midnight, I scanned it before the glue on the dew drops was dry.  (That's three more dew drops down and one thousand still to use.)

Stamps:  Hero Arts plant, Stampin Up hello
Dies:  Stampin Up Scallop Circle, Sizzix Circles, Heartfelt Creations posey
Distress Inks:  Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint
Paper;  Stampin Up Certainly Celery

I wish you could see the glimmer mist that was spritzed on.  And now I must say goodnight before I turn into a pumpkin, or loose my shoe, or just fall asleep at the computer and forget to go to bed.  Hope all my friends are safe and snug in their homes. Goodnight.

Happy Valentine's Day

 We are catching the tail end of the storm that covered the country yesterday.  Luckily it didn't start until late last night so the Cardologists were able to hold their Valentine party.  Tina brought wonderful heart cookies for our dessert.  Not much stamping last night, but lots of goodies and laughter among friends.  Here is my Valentine:

Stamps (Retired):  Hero Arts Rose, DOTS balloon string, Stampin Up balloon
Word embossing folder and Ornament punch from Stampin Up

Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's celebration - laughter among friends, chocolate, and time to stamp.
