happy Halloween heat embossing and brayer tutorial by sherrill graff

start by stamping the Happy Halloween stamp on your versamark pad
then into your pumpkin pie pad

stamp the image onto white cardstock and heat emboss
using clear powder

Next stamp the spatter image from the grunge set over the 
halloween stamp using wisteria wonder ink.

Stamp the swirl image from the everything elanor set 
using versa mark and white embossing powder

brayer item # 102395

punch out a circle 
from a post it note
so the sticky can keep it in place
Stamp the image below in pumpkin pie

then using your Stampin Up Brayer
and a Daffodil Delight ink pad
cover the entire area

then brayer  wisteria wonder  around the edges
We don't have to be as good at this as 
michelle zindorf 
to still have a LOT of fun!

Michelle was here in Las Vegas with Kay, Barbara and I
I'll see if I can find a photo and post it here later.

Here is my finished card

what do you think?

was this tutorial helpful?

also a brayer is my clue on the treasure hunt we are having
here is a link to that post

The treasure hunt has great prizes too

May God bless you and your family, 
Sherrill Graff  

if you don't own a brayer...
go here and buy a brayer and start creating! 

Brayer And Rubber Attachment102395
Use a brayer for special-effects backgrounds and uniform inking on large stamps.
* Includes handle and soft rubber attachment
* Attachment dimensions 4-1/2” wide by 1-1/4” in diameter

after I posted this I decided to come back today and add these words
Pintrest is such a fun place to find ideas and to share ideas but we NEED TO remember how important it is to walk away from the computer to create that card, or paint that bookshelf, or prepare that meal.

Don't just dream about it, do it!

May God bless all of us that pintrest, facebook and other social media are used as a tool to help us do more, be more, and experience more life. 

so today, I'll be cleaning house, preparing a meal for my family, 
making some cards just for the fun of it.

May you be blessed as you experience LIFE too.

It sure was fun to play around with embossing and the brayer today. I love the layered look. In real life the words show up much better. Maybe I should have stamped them in black.
Good thing I have plenty of time to stamp again today.
Thanks for your nice comment.
Hope you have a good stamping day as well full of inspiration and enjoyment too.
(((hugs))) sherrill
