Default Postal Challenge, Love your Brayer Card Swap

New Open Challenge, Love your Brayer Card Swap Due March 1, 2013.

This is a little different then my usual swaps. As it is a technique challenge. It requires you to use a Brayer. If you have never used one you need to get one. There is an instruction link. I think the affect it creates is really neat. So you need to get some scrap paper try it. The possibilities are endless with this technique. We get to bring back to life stamps we got tired of. Plenty of time to play. Plenty of color and wow.

Now who can’t stand to learn or try something new? I know I always want to learn new thing and am always asking questions on here. Be creative and have fun with it. So what are you waiting for? Try different color combos. Ink combos. Spectrum inks are great for this.You’ll never know what you will come up with until you give it a shot.
Sign up for as many spots as you'd like, but please, make a different design and colors for each spot you take.

Make your cards theme related to a theme or image you really like.. The stamps U chose to ink should reflect You. This Ink some ladies with cocktails in hand, ink a beer can any drink you can think of. But have fun doing it. Oh Heck Create a piece of art for your wall using this technique. We want our swapper to feel as if they are receiving a card from a special friend. Be you I encourage Creativity, sense of humor and off the cuff cards. If you are not into this you can still join and pm me and tell me you do not want sassy off the cuff cards. I want everyone to be happy and have fun.


You must check in 2 weeks before the end date and let me know you are still in the swap. If you need to drop out that is fine life happens but I don't have the time to pm 20 people a few times to see if you are still in the swap. If you can't do this then don't sign up. Thank you.


Description requirement:
Full Size Card - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 It could be a regular full size card, Fancy folds, pop ups any style card are always welcome. If you make a long card or different size please include envies.

Quantity: 5+1
(the plus one is for the hostess...that's me

You will make six cards in total and receive five back
You will not get one of your own back, so make sure to make an extra one for yourself!

Vendor products:
No vendor restriction, but please use only good quality card stock
Please use at least 2 layers
Embellishments are optional on this card as the image you ink my stand alone.
Take pride in making fabulous cards with friends in mind
Everyone is welcome. If you never done a swap before take the plunge it will be fun.
Take the plunge try this out. Most of us will be newbie’s at this. We can learn together.

Recipe:
Although a recipe is not required, some folks may want to know how to case your card, or what kind of technique you are using as we are always trying to learn. If you decide to include your recipe please make sure to add Your Real Name, SCS Name, Swap Name, email address, products and techniques used.


Deadline: In my hands by March 1st, 2013 and I will have them postal within 10 days of the due date. Cards not received by then will regrettably be returned to sender as not to hold up the swap.


Mailing instructions: Packaging and Swap Return:
Mailing: Put your cards in a zip lock bag with the swap name, your real name, and your SCS name. Please send a self addressed stamped envelope with the same postage as it took to send to me plus two extra stamps just in case needed. Thanks!
DO NOT send metered postage as we all know they only work for day of purchase!! If you would rather use Priority mail, please include one $5.15 priority stamp and a self-addressed priority label. I will provide priority envelope. If you are mailing from Canada please include $4 US to cover return postage, and I will return whatever is left to you.


All return mail will be sent via First Class unless you request (and provide for) otherwise. NO METERED POSTAGE PLEASE.

Boni is going to give us some of her creations to view for this swap.

In next post I will post 50 ways to love your Brayer which was created by Boni.

Vivian,

Once Christmas is over (and I've finished sewing 4 pj bottoms, one set of pjs, a pair of baby overalls with feet and a baby bunting sleeper, oh yeah, and curtains for my kitchen!) I will be so ready to try something new and not sewing related! So sign me up for one spot right now, please. If I get good at it, I'll sign up for another one.

By the way, I live in Nanticoke, PA, just south of Wilkes-Barre...we're almost neighbors!

Gosh! I forgot this was New Years day!

I got up around 9:30 am this morning, had breakfast, took a shower, got dressed and decided to run some errands.

Guess what?? The bank was closed, the library was closed and a business I wanted to stop at was closed....then I figured out it was Tuesday, New Years day!

I went home terribly embarrassed. Good thing nobody noticed.

Did I mention I'm going to keep my eyes on your swap for a little while? I gotta see how I'm doing with my other swaps in January & February. Don't want to get burn-out and then mess up.

Hi Vivien...Happy New Year!

I'll take 2 slots. It's been awhile since I've used my brayer, it'll be good to get creative with it again!

Thanks, Sue!

Were you going to post something about 50 ways to love your brayer??

I'm still lurking around & thinking.

Ladies:

50 Ways was actually a Boni Boutelle original about 12 years ago. And yes I am Boni Boutelle! Too funny that this thing is still around and apparently gaining some new tricks to add to the list. I love seeing it here. I was actually at an SU! class and the Demonstrator referred to the list in the middle of the class - still had my name on her copy. When I stood up and introduced myself as "The Boni Boutelle" you would have thought a celebrity was in the room. LOL

Glad you all have enjoyed the list and now that it's so old I guess updating it has been taken care. Thank you to all you wonderful ladies who have taken such good care of my silly little list with the title that brings the oldies to mind (which by the way was my intention - couldn't get the darn song out of my head either).
Boni



50 Ways to Love Your Brayer

RUBBER:


1. Stripes: using markers, make stripes on your brayer (this works best if you lie it on its back and turn the roller while holding the marker) all the way around until
the beginning and ending stripe meet. Roll brayer across your paper in whatever direction you desire.
2. Squiggles (technical term): Repeat the same process as for Stripes but make wavy lines instead of straight ones.
3. Confetti/Dots/Raindrops: Randomly make marks on your brayer with your marker (you can use different colors) all over the entire roller. Then roll away.
4. Plaids: Same as with the markers for Stripes except criss-cross pattern.
5. Plaids: You could also outline the stripes for your plaids with the smaller tip of your marker to make the plaid/stripes stand out more.
6. Plaids: Rainbow/Kaliedacolor plaids are made with the brayer being rolled over a KC pad several times then brayering over your paper. Repeat as necessary for
the desired depth of color and surface coverage. Then repeat the process in the opposite direction.
7. KC Backgrounds: Same as above just don't create a plaid design. This works great for those scenery/landscape cards.
8. Reverse/mirror Image: Color your stamp, rubber side up and roll the brayer over the image several times, then roll over your paper (works great with trees,
flowers etc). You can also add this technique to the above KC backgrounds for a great scenic card.
9. Mirror Image: If you have an image that you want to face each other say the Pig from Farm Fun… you would brayer over the stamp like above and then roll onto
your paper then stamp the original pig image nose to nose with the first.
10. Kissing: Brayer over a background stamp like Pindot Plaids then use your other stamps like the Seasonal Solid and stamp onto the background stamp then
stamp onto your card stock - your solid stamp now has a design and you have just multiplied your uses of one set.
11. Ghosting: Stamp an image on your card (say the Snowflake from the "Snowflake" set) several times in clear embossing ink. (DO NOT EMBOSS) Then brayer over
your invisible images with regular dye pad and your snowflakes will start to appear.
12. Resist: Works best with glossy paper. You will need to choose your resist medium; ink, wax or other. I tried with the metallic pens. You color on the glossy card
stock with the pens in any way, or pattern you choose then you use the same technique as the ghosting by brayering over with a different color. The pattern that
you drew or colored will not let the brayered ink absorb through the card stock therefore comes the "resist". (This category could actually count for about 10
different ways to love your brayer as you are only limited by your imagination on what you choose as your resist medium)
Others to try:
13. oil colored pencils (work best with regular matte finished papers);
14. crayons;
15. wax paper;
16. metallic pens;
17. ink;
18. resist ink;
19. emboss ink (try the emboss pens to write a hidden message);
20. rubber cement;
21. masking fluid;
22. white out/correction pen;
23. Gel pens;
24. wax resist sticks;
25. Deka paint (for fabric - much harder to do).
26. Another "Resist" able technique: crumple a piece of wax paper; iron (on hottest setting/no steam) wax paper onto white card stock (be sure to use an
additional sheet of card stock between the wax paper and iron); press for only 2-3 seconds - this will transfer the wax to both sheets of card stock (if you iron too
long the wax will be absorbed into the paper) Ink your brayer and then brayer over card stock. The brayer will resist laying color where the was paper has left its
design (makes a great background paper)
27. Another variation to the above is to use your stylus tool and with the wax paper on the card stock use the tip of your stylus to write your own message or draw
your own design - brayer over to reveal your design or message.
28. Use your brayer for those big background stamps to get an all over inking.
29. You could also use the same technique as above for those bigger solid images that you want to emboss. Brayer over the image with the emboss pad for an
even/smoother finish.
30. Put a piece of cheesecloth down and brayer over the cheesecloth for a different effect.
31. Try the same as above with lace doilies.
32. Lace
33. Bubble wrap
34. Brayer over a leaf (two ways to do this: place card stock over leaf or other nature finds and bring out the textured surfaces below; or use the reverse/mirror
image technique to pick up the pattern of your nature find.)
35. Joseph's Coat: Brayer with a KC pad and cover the entire area of your card (glossy works best). Emboss your image with clear embossing powder/ink on top of
the area colored (this technique works best with the more solid image stamps like the tent from Roughin It or the Kids Prints). Then ink your brayer with Black or
Navy (the darker the better) and cover the entire card again with this new color. Let the overcoat of ink dry, then buff the card with a paper towel to remove
excess ink. What happens is that your KC color will then shine through. Just think of a great landscape card with stars in the sky and trees) WOW!!
36. Ink up your brayer with embossing ink and roll over the entire card then emboss with clear powder.
37. Brayer an intense/brilliant color on glossy card stock then use a speckle background stamp and clear emboss ink, stamp then emboss with Rainbow Razzle or
other multi colored emboss powder. When you heat it will bring out the beautiful play in colors.
38. Watercolor brayer: Ink your brayer with a rainbow pad or markers, then spritz with a water bottle, then roll out for a very pretty watercolor look.
LUCITE/ACRYLIC:


39. Put rubber bands around your brayer for unique background
40. Wrap syran wrap around your brayer for another unique background
41. Try fabric netting or the netting from bags of oranges or marbles as above.
42. Cheesecloth another unique background
43. Try string
44. Yarn
45. Crochet yarn
46. Try the new Encore pads and rolling it out onto liquid appliqué for a faux suede look.
47. Use your acrylic brayer to roll out paperclay
48. Use your acrylic brayer to make sharp creases in your card stock
49. Crinkle up a piece of Mulberry paper, ink up your brayer with the new Encore pads and give your Mulberry paper that guilded look.
50. Faux Suede - squeeze brown liquid appliqué on wax paper or aluminum foil. Roll the brayer until it is coated and smooth. Roll and even coat of the liquid
appliqué on your cut out image (try the gingerbread man die cut) let it set for a minute then heat. This will give you a nice suede feel. Try it with different colors.
But be sure to clean your brayer right away.
51. Use your acrylic brayer with pigment ink on glossy (takes a little while to dry) don't roll use a quick sliding motion to brush the inked brayer across the card
stock, wiggle if you want (the brayer silly!) You can make some awesome plaids or sunbursts.
52. Try the same technique above but tap the brayer around in different areas for an all over colorburst.
FOAM:


53. Use your foam brayer for an all over airbrush effect.
54. Use your foam brayer with your stencils.
55. Use with the KC pads for rainbow effect.
56. Use your foam brayer with markers for an interesting look. I've heard that you can make some great tortoise shell, leopard or gemstone looks on glossy card stock.
57. You can also use the spritz technique with the foam brayer for a watercolor effect.

Great swap - just subbing for now. I took both of Michelle Zindorf's brayer classes a few years ago but I never used her technique outside of her classes so I could really use a refresher (use it or lose it LOL) - her technique is so awesome.
