Getting to know my brayer – 101

I salivate over the lovely things pieces of work that Zindorf produces, and have resolved to definitely get to know my brayer.

I’ve set myself the target of doing 101 pieces of artwork with it – not every day, but at least once a week is the plan – and then hopefully by the end of that the brayer and I will be best buds.

So, this is number 101 on the countdown.

I’m quite pleased with it, but do still need to work on keeping the middle section a defined colour.


  • Whispers White Cardstock (SU)
  • Seahorse stamp (Anita’s)
  • Fern & starfish stamps (Stampington Bolio set)
  • SU Dye Inks in Bareley Banana, Certain Celery, Old Olive & Chocolate Chip
  • Denim Adirondak Dye Ink
  • Palette Noir ink
  • Versamark Pen
  • Chiaro Flo Clear Embossing Powder
  • COPIC Markers in Flesh, Pink & Yellow

Beside the Sea Card



How to:-

  1. Make 6×6 cardblank using Scor-it board.

  2. Cut pattern paper to 5.5 x 5.5.  Punch ticket corners and run round the edge with the Perfect Pulmaria Versamagic.

  3. Place a piece of the word vellum down the left hand side, and mount onto the card.

  4. Cut a piece of Papaya Puree Medium cardstock to about 4.5 x 4.5.  Stamp with the Stampington cube in both Perfect Pulmaria and Pearlescent Purple – I used the starfish and mesh images.  Run round the edge with the Perfect Pulmaria ink, and place on the card at a jaunty angle.

  5. Cut a piece of the Sage Green Medium cardstock to about 4.5 x 4.5, and tie round a piece of cream ribbon.  Mount to the card at an opposite jaunty angle to the Papaya.

  6. With the A5 Purple Cow cutter and the fluted blade, cut a piece of white cardstock to about 3.5 x 3.5 and stamp the mermaid image with Palette Noir.  Heat set and colour in with the COPICs (I only have a limited range, and there is a list of the colours somewhere on the blog).   Add the giveaway photocorner to the top righthand side and mount on the green matt.

  7. Line the inside of the card – I stamped the starfish image on mine.  I also tend to stamp the envelope with a co-ordinating image.

Humpty Dumpty Sat on the Wall


How to:

  1. Take a piece of 12×12 white cardstock, and cut in half to measure 6×12. Using the Scor-it board, score in half. With the front facing cut the card diagonally.
  2. Line the inside of the card with the paper from English Paper Company, and stamp “A Big Happy Birthday” down the side in Black Memories Ink.
  3. Stamp the circle from the Paper Salon Tin on each of the squares on the paper with the Whispers Azure Seas ink.
  4. Take the green with blue dots border strip from the Get Groovy English Paper Border pack, and add to the front of the card.
  5. Stamp the swirl from the Paper Salon Tin using Grand Cranberry on the right side of the front.
  6. Take a spare piece of white cardstock and stamp the Humpty image in Art Print Brown Memories. Zap with a heat gun to set, and colour in with COPIC markers.
  7. Matt this onto a piece of bright blue from the River Deep Papermania pack, and punch the corners with the star punch. Add 3-d pads to the back, and mount across the front of the card over the green/blue dots paper. Run the Grand Cranberry Whispers Ink down the diagonal of the card.

Loving my Humpty Dumpty Stamp

I stamped it out last night, and coloured two different versions with my COPICS (what else I hear you say, the girl doesn’t use anything else recently).

I love him, he is so very, very cute. Just waiting for my Pearlidoodles to dry, and I will upload a piccie.

I broke out some more the English Paper Company paper – I don’t understand why it’s not selling, it really is lovely….. – I just wonder if maybe nobody realises what fabulous quality it is, and the designs are just super.

Back in a bit with the photo. Actually I had to patch the card up, ‘cos I did one corner version and them accidentally dropped a stamp block on the Pearlidooles and smudged it – so the corner you will be able to see is an alternative (and cover up one).

My entry in Clare’s CJ

we all had to do file folders to go inside the lunch pail, and this was my entry.
On the outside (which was covered with SEI) I used my large Stampington Cube, a Paper Artsy image and one of the butterflies images from the Walk in the Garden Cartridge (Cricut), oh and a load of Hero Art 3mm gems. The whole thing was edged with Whispers Dye Ink in Plum.
The inside was painted with Twinkling H20’s and then stamped with Hero Arts Butterfly Border and a very old swirly stamp, then a piece of cream ric rac and a purple and white hydrangea by Angel Kisses.

Quick card

with pink card blank, Stampington Cube and my favourite Sea Horse stamp from Anita’s.
Fluid chalk ink in Wisteria and Coral, and Azurite, and StazOn in Timber Brown.
It’s great to have a Mum to make you a card at 30 seconds notice isn’t it!

Quick Altered Notebook last night

Lydia and I had a little bit of a falling out briefly last night, which is highly unusual as she is usually an uber good girl (all sorted now), so to please her a little afterwards I altered a really cute plain notebook we picked up from Paperchase in Tunbridge Wells.
On the back I used the Paper Artsy Kids Plate 2 with my selection of Whispers Dye Inks, and the front the Shore Cliff Trim set with the same inks. Then just ran an Azurite Fluid Chalk Ink around the edges, and tied ribbon to the spine – she loves it, we are friends again, and the world is rosie.
I can’t wait to I get home from the Kingdom of Blahhell, as there will be a new Webisode to watch from Craft TV – yay!!

This afternoon, I have mostly been

fiddling around with dye ink. This is a small piece of the SEI green dots paper, with Dusty Concord Distress Ink rubbed on my craft sheet, spritzed and the paper run through it. I then add some sea salt and leave to dry.
Trimmed with my A5 Multi Trimmer with the wavy blade in, and added the Shore Cliffe Trim and wording (Stampington) down one side, Judikins Floral Fabric cube images in the background stamped in Starry Starry Night, and the tiny swirl is from my Hero Arts stamped in Savoy Green.
The oriental lady was stamped on cream cardstock and embossed with Galactic Gold Embossing Powder. Then she was coloured with Sakura Glaze Pens, cut out and added on top with silicon glue.
Then I just ran a Brilliance Moonlight White inkpad around the edge.
I’ve also laminated the index sheets of the new Aud Design stamps, in readiness to cut out the stamps. I’ve also got quite a few Paper Artsy sheets to cut out – I hate cutting out stamps really I do – I’m seriously considering buying Guy a scroll saw and getting him to do them for me.
