what a beautiful card


Beautiful card, Julie! Great easy way to add a bicolored background.
Hugs and smiles


Hi Julie! I CASE'd your card and I just need to say THANK YOU so much! I am one who hasn't mucked with a brayer much either so this was an awesome tutorial. I'm going to prep enough cardstock for my Saturday evening workshop and show off this technique! Thanks!!!

Lori Craig

I cannot WAIT to try this. Thank you so much for your tutorial! :) Way cool and gorgeous card!

Michelle B. aka JustPaintingAround

Wow! I gave this a shot and am very impressed with the results. I consider myself ok with a brayer but this made things MUCH easier and MUCH prettier. I even used 3 colors (just did the technique 2 x and repeated the middle color both times). Here's mine:

As I am mostly a scene stamper, this will save me tons of time and ensure perfect results the first time. Thanks so much for the tutorial!

Julie, this is just an jaw-dropping card! Thanks for the tutorial! I'm going to give it a try!


What a beautiful card and technique Julie.
Could tell me what size brayer you have ?
Just wondering....

Sharon in NE

Crystal (SCS happy2stamp4ever)

Ooooh, how GORGEOUS!!! Thanks so much for the tutorial - I can't wait to try it out! :)

Deb Wood

Soooo beautiful, love it!!


Oh Jules just beautiful. I will definitely give this a try.


Absolutely beautiful!!!

Kathy Brown

Hey Julie, it's Kathy Brown again. I was just wondering about the butterfly.....which stamp set is that from and how did you do it?

Kathy Brown


This is soo BEAUTIFUL!! WOW, I'm amazed at how easy that looks. And ya know... I was taught to use the brayer by picking it up at the end of my c.s. and I always got streaks. I gave up on it, but I'll have to try it again your way. Hey, if a non-stamper can do it, I should be able to, LOL. THANKS, and your card came out soo gorgeous. Love the butterfly too.


Julie you are one of the best, when I open my emails I always look at yours first. This tutorial is just great. A+++++

tina khoudoud

That has got to be the coolest!!!Amazing how many compliments too!!Just cause your the best!!!Keep up the awesome work Julie!


Wow, and so easy....thanks!!!


BEAUTIFUL; I never use my brayer enough; but this is simple and looks stunning!!


Wow! This is really cool! Guess I'll get out my brayer and put it to use! Thanks for the tutorial!


Very pretty! Thanks for the tutorial!

Kathy Brown

OMGoodness Julie, this is awesome and yes I'm doing it later this morning. Once again, you are awesome. TFS...........


How DOES it feel to be such a stampin' DIVA??!! I love this and am definitely trying it ASAP. You rock!!


Really great tutorial. It made a beautiful card!


Great card Julie and thanks so much for the tutorial that is not video for us stampers that do not have Road Runner or similiar "fast" computers. My dial-up is so slow. Yuck. Have done background skies before but never putting two colors together on one brayer. This saves so much time and is just GREAT!!! Ya made my day.


Your blog is absolutely wonderful, i can't wait to get it and see what you have for the day. got a quick question on brayering. When you get ready to put it on the CS, do you start kind of off the cs and roll in one continous roll? I know you said it was important not to lift. I hope this makes sense on what i am asking.


Thank you so much for posting this info on brayering. I tried and tried and mine always looked horrible. I will give it a try again after reading your tutorial.


Toni K

Great tutorial, and awesome card!

Karen (stampin3)

gorgeous card - I wouldn't have thought to put those 2 colors together, but will have to try now!! love it!!


Beautiful card Julie! Love the brayered background and the pretty image. TFS!


TFS that's very effective.



This is just beautiful. I love the colors, layout, and the monochromatic. Your tutorial was so easy to follow.


I just discovered your blog yesterday and I already enjoy it so much! Your tutorials are Awesome! You are so talented and just have so much to share! I love it! Thank you! Oh-and I can't wait to try this technique-I do alot of pics from hubby & kids fishing and Florida and want to try this for my scrapbooking! Thanks again!


Great card and tutorial, I can see how even beginners can do this. Nice blog too. Have a great weekend.


Beautiful! I've been looking for cards that don't use a lot of different items...monochromatic, a stamp or two and still have that "wow!" -- this is perfect! Thanks for the inspiration!
