Something Lacy Brayered Background card

Hello Everyone,

I have something extremely pretty to show you today.  I've been playing with the new background stamp Something Lacy combined with the Irresistibly Yours Sale-a-bration patterned paper and here is the result on this card.  I must thank Linda Heller (When the rubber Hits the Road) for this idea I saw on her blog.  Let me explain further how this was achieved.

The background was firstly stamped over the Irresistibly yours patterned sheet with Memento Black ink and the excess blotted and wiped off.  I then brayered over the piece with Pink Pirouette ink, again wiping off any excess.  I then completed my card using cardstock of Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White and Basic Black.   The greeting comes from the stamp set Label Love stamped in Blackberry ink and punched with the Artisan Label punch.  The butterfly is cut using the Butterfly Thinlits and in the centre of it is one of our new Something Borrowed embellishments.  Heres the full photo of the card.

I am trying this technique out in a couple more colours, so look out for that in the coming days.  See you next time.


  1. Stunning Carolyn. Will be giving this a try for sure. What did you do for your BB butterfly? Did you just trace and fussy cut?

    1. Thanks very much Louise. For once this card wasn't all about the Butterfly, lol, but yes that's what I did, used the negative from the die cut butterfly as a stencil to trace and hand cut the solid one behind. cheers. xx

  2. HI Carolyn , saw this on Stampin Connection, followed your link and loved the video, was inspired to create a few cards and entered one into the Case-ing the Catty Challenge#16! Just wanted to thank you, Liz
