A simple TY

Debra Burgin Simple TYAt this month’s Heartfelt Inkspiration group meeting, we were pondering the technique on a tag I got in a swap.  Did she brayer the embossing folder with craft ink and then emboss the panel?  Which side of the folder got the ink?  Or was the panel brayered after it was embossed?  We experimented with the first two variations, and this morning I tried the third.  That was it.  And I know there’s a tutorial or challenge out there for this technique (and a name!), but I don’t know where or what it is.  (Do you?)

I decided to use the panels I produced to create some quick thank you cards.  No embellishments, just a little piercing to add interest.

  1. Being trained as a librarian, I had to go out and find a tutorial about brayering embossing folders! I know there is more than one way to do it. Here is a photo tutorial from Patty Bennett:

    Here’s the opposite technique from Diana Gibbs and includes a video:

    I have not tried these techniques yet, but I will have to very soon!

    This reminds me to tell you that my MIL kept the card I sent her last year to display at the holidays. It’s these ice skaters that we stamped with StazOn onto a thick transparency. She loves it! Thanks for bringing creative things to our monthly Stamp Camps!
