Taylored Expressions Share Joy Campaign: Inspiration Challenge Week

The Taylored Expressions 5th Birthday Bash is continuing this week with a new Share Joy Campaign, benefitting the Union Rescue Mission of Los Angeles, Prodigal's Home of Phoenix, and Iowa Homeless Youth Shelter of Des Moines. These wonderful charities work tirelessly to bring comfort and care to many homeless individuals and families throughout the year. One way they are sharing joy each and every day is by celebrating the birthdays of their participants, and you can help by sending in your handmade birthday cards! 
This week, Taylored Expressions will help you to create with a different Birthday Inspiration Challenge each day. These charities need birthday cards of all kinds: child, adult, baby. . .so send in your funny, sweet, pretty, elegant, works of art and know that you will be brightening someone's day in a way only a handmade card can do.  To get all the details on how to participate, please hop over to the Taylored Expressions Blog.

Today, I am bringing you the TE Technique Challenge.  It is to create a card using the Dry Emboss Brayering Technique.  What you'll need is neutral cardstock, an ink of your choice, a Taylored Expressions (TE) Cutting Plate, embossing pads, a die cutting machine and a brayer!!  I've created the following video to show you the technique!!

For my card, I used the Kid at Heart set from Taylored Expressions along with the Swirls Cutting Plate.  Some other items I used are the Label Stacklets 4, Band It Die, the Banner Day 1 Die, the Embossing Pad Kit and a sentiment from the Plane Awesome set. 

I hope you'll play along!  I can't wait to see what you create!!  To see more samples using this technique, please visit the Taylored Expressions Blog.   Thanks for stopping by!!
