A Little About Me

Hi My name is Serena also known as "Reenybeanies" I became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator because I enjoy Stamping and Crafting. I love being part of a company that inspires my creativity with exclusive stamps and accessories! I Joined Stampin'Up! in 2004 as a Club member I loved it so much spending time with new friends just sitting and talking and of course learning new and exciting techniques so I decided to become a demonstrator so that I could teach people the exciting world of Rubber Stamps. Where you can create Cards, Scrapbook Pages, Home Decor, Books, and More! its just not a craft its a time to spend a little time on you. I also wanted the versatility of having my own home business. I love being part of a company that allows me to plan my business around my schedule. If you want more information about Stampin’ Up!’s exciting products, or about Stampin’ Up!’s unique business opportunity, please contact me either through email or by phone. I can't wait to talk to you and share some fun and exciting projects.

Brayered Roses Create beautiful softly shaded roses using the Brayer.

· Textured Impressions Die – Manhattan Flower from Stampin’ Up!
· Big Shot, Multipurpose Platform, clear cutting pads
· Shimmery White Cardstock
· Brayer
· 2 to 3 coordinating colors – classic ink pads
· scissors

1. Emboss the Manhattan Flower die onto Shimmery White cardstock with the Multipurpose platform and the Big Shot
2. Turn the finished image over so the raised portion is facing DOWN onto your work surface
3. Ink your brayer in one color (I used Regal Rose) and then ROLL OFF much of the ink onto scrap paper
4. Roll remaining ink onto “debossed” rose image (raised portion facing DOWN) – in a “hit and miss” fashion – do NOT try to cover the image entirely with color
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with a 2nd color – I used Summer Sun
6. Cut image out and adhere to your card or project
You are done! Isn’t that quick and easy and BEAUTIFUL!?
