Vintage Wallpaper Embossing & Brayer Cards

I was trying to come up with ways to use the brayer. The obvious choice is to use glossy card stock and different colors of ink to create a scenery type background, like a sunset or a sky. To show its versatility and some newer techniques, I opted to use the brayer as a tool for highlighting embossed images.

For this card, I used Early Espresso for the base and Baja Breeze card stock for the embossed layer. The Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and the Big Shot was used to emboss the Baja Breeze layer, then I used the brayer inked up with Early Espresso ink to highlight the raised image.

The scallop circle medallion was made using the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. I found a good video tutorial here. The trick is to punch out 2 scallop circles, cut between one set of scallops to the center of the circle, then fold between each scallop in an accordian fashion. Attach the two scallops together to get a complete circle.

I used the 1/2″ Circle Punch to make a Baja Breeze center and added a Glimmer Brad from the neutrals collection. Attach the medallion to the card with stampin dimensionals.

Victoria Crochet Trim complements the vintage style of the card. The sentiment is from Great Friends stamped in Baja Breeze ink on Very Vanilla, punched out with the Word Window Punch and layered onto Early Espresso Modern Label Punch. Paper piercing highlights the sentiment.


Here is similar card, stepped up version. The base is Naturals Confetti, layered with Early Espresso (embossed with Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder). The top layer is Baja Breeze (embossed and brayered) then cut with the Top Note Die.

Using the Large Oval Punch, I made a window in the Top Note layer, then stamped the sentiment from Thank You Kindly on Very Vanilla scrap in Baja Breeze ink. I layered the card stock behind the window in the Top Note, then added an Early Espresso scallop oval frame around it. To make the frame, punch a large oval out of early espresso card stock, then line up the scallop oval punch around the hole and punch.

I added a Very Vanilla basic brad and Victoria Crochet Trim to finish the card. The medallion is adhered to the base with a stampin dimensional.

Yummy Ice Creamy Card {Sweet Scoops}

I made this card as part of an ice cream gift basket–with cones, sprinkles, hot fudge, etc. The colors were inspired by the basket I used.

The card base is Gina K Luxury White Base Weight card stock, layered with polka dot DSP from Island Oasis. I stamped the cone from Sweet Scoops in Creamy Caramel ink on Whisper white. Then, I stamped the ice cream in Pretty in Pink ink onto a scrap of Whisper White and cut it out. I attached it to the base with a Stampin Dimensional.

The Whisper White is layered with Old Olive. I paper pierced the White and then adhered it to the Old Olive with Stampin Dimensionals. Behind the Old Olive, I added a strip of Rose Red card stock that I punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.

Lastly, the sentiment is from an old SAB set called Yummy. I stamped it on Whisper White and punched it out with the Large Oval Punch. Then, I took Rose Red card stock and punched it with the Scallop Oval Punch, layering the two pieces. That was adhered to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.
