Love the Scallop Punch!

Filed under: Rubber Stamping, Stampin' Up! — Tags: , , , , , — rozveevers @ 7:34 am

The scallop punch is coming in the new Idea Book & Catalogue. One of my team members already owns it, lucky girl! This was the result of my first play. I have used Seeing Spots, circle punches and the scallop. The colours are Pretty in Pink, Lavender Lace, Mellow Moss and Barely Banana.

I am ordering the Scallop punch in my first order and I can see it playing a HUGE role in future make-and-take’s!


The photo is terrible but the card is really lovely.

Brayer with Stampin’ Spots


Now that we no longer have a multi-coloured ink pad in the catalogue, I put my thinking cap on and came up with this. I don’t know why I did not think of it before, and if it is old hat to you, then I apologise!

Choose your 4 Stampin’ Spots to match your desired card colour. The wonderful thing about this technique is that you can match your brayering to your cardstock, and you can create a million different brayered combinations, depending on your mood.


Ink the brayer with four Stampin’ Spots, starting from the one end of the brayer, working your way to the other end, until you have your four chosen colours in stripes along the brayer.


My chosen colours are from the Rich Regals set, Regal Rose, Brocade Blue, Bordering Blue and So Saffron. Once you are happy with the colours on the brayer, roll it across your piece of gloss card. Roll back and forth really quickly for the best result.


Stamp over the top with your desired image, inked with Stazon. Layer on matching cardstock.


And there you have it. For any comments or questions email

Technique Tuesday

Filed under: Uncategorized — rozveevers @ 9:20 pm

I have started a new project on Stamphappy, called Technique Tuesday. Every Tuesday, someone is going to post a technique, with images and instructions. Here is my contribution for the first week.


Plain card (white or cream)
Dye ink pads

Stamp a background stamp of your choice, I have used French Script, from Stampin’ Up! Rip a piece of paper and place that across the card, so that one corner is left exposed. Sponge the exposed area with the first colour.

TIP: I use a “swishing” motion to sponge, rather than an “up and down” motion


Once you are happy with the first colour, sponge the second colour over the top. You can even add a third colour.


I used the Roses in Winter set to finish my card off. The colours are Old Olive and Real Red, and the French Background is stamped with Sahara Sand. I edged the border with real red on a sponge.


With this background, I tore a wedge out of the piece of scrap paper. The background stamp is Weathered. For this one I used Earth Elements ink pads.


In this picture you can see the way the paper is torn.


Keep moving the scrap paper around the card and sponging, until you are happy with the result. You can create a million backgrounds this way!


Try different colour combinations
Tear the paper into weird and wonderful shapes
Try different sponges- you may get a different result
You can do different “backgrounds” on one piece of card
Use decorative scissors to cut fancy edges
Use a brayer instead of a sponge
Use chalks instead of dye pads
Stamp small stamps randomly instead of using a background stamp
Punch out shapes with punches or use stencils to create interesting shapes to sponge over
Use roller wheels instead of stamps
Mix images to create the background
Try stamping two background stamps over the top of each other
Create a faux background around the border of a layout
Punch holes in the piece of scrap paper and use that as your mask
Use masking tape or sticky notes to create a grid to sponge over

I have been doing some scrapbooking with some of the retiring stamp sets.


This one, Petal Prints, is NOT retiring.
