With the new annual Stampin’ Up! catalog just out, I’m getting a lot of questions like “How did they do that?” about cards shown in the catalog.

Like this one that uses the Rubber Brayer Resist Technique

Question: How did they make the Bee Thankful card (green) on page 97?

Answer: Rubber Cement and a Sponge Brayer!

Rubber Cement Resist Technique:

  • Stamp the image in Black StazOn ink.
  • Use a paintbrush to paint rubber cement glue onto the area you don’t want the ink applied. In this case that’s inside the letters and the bee.
  • Let dry.
  • Use a Sponge Brayer to brayer ink (Granny Apple Green) where desired.
  • Gently rub over the dried glue to remove it.


Doesn’t that sound like a fun technique? Let’s all give it a try!

Happy Stamping!
