Workshop Wow Wednesday

Today I have a really easy WOW to share with you...Bouncing Brayer. Basically all you do is ink up your brayer and then bounce it on your cardstock. I wanted to add a few different colors to my Crumb Cake cardstock to make it look more like wood, so this technique was perfect.  My card is for the photo inspiration challenge at Stampin' Royalty.
Isn't this picture beautiful?!  There are so many different things to choose from to work with!  I loved the wood panel and the window frame, so I decided to use that for my card.  Of course, I had to use some fall pumpkins on there too!
The window pane was so easy to recreate!  I just used my 1" Square Punch to punch out the windows of the larger square.  I colored the individual pumpkins from Halloween Happiness and fussy cut them for the windows. The wood panels were inked using the Bouncing Brayer technique, then run through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder for some added texture.

Stamp Sets: Halloween Happiness, Petite Pairs
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango
Tools: 1" Square Punch, Woodgrain Embossing Folder
Accessories: Twine, Dimensionals


  1. Super cute! I love that you totally recreated the wood look from the photo and that you cut out the pumpkins. :)
