Wow! I was going through some cards that I made previously and decided to post a plethora of projects for your perusal (that's a lot of p's)!

This first set of cards showcases the January Stamp of the Month, Eastertime.

The background on this card was created with a rubber brayer, some rubber bands and ink. Just remove the roller part of the brayer and wrap rubber bands of varying thicknesses around the roller. I kept my rubber bands in somewhat straight lines for this background. Re-attach the roller to the handle and roll the brayer over the lightest color ink first and across your card base. You will need roll the color on vertically and horizontally to create the plaid effect. Clean brayer on scratch paper and then repeat with your second color.

Very easy to do and it adds so much to your artwork!

The cards you see here show the versatility of the Eastertime set.

When using a seasonal stamp set, think outside the box. That way you can use the set year round!
