A Single Suggestion
Layering Colors with Emboss Resist Technique
Hello! This is a fun technique that you can be very creative with. Another oldie, but goodie! I hope you enjoy the video below.
The products I used to create this card are listed below, in text, linked to sites where you can purchase the product if you choose. FYI. A few of the products are no longer available.
The finished card size is 5.5 X 4.25 inches. I applied Cajun Craze and Mint Macaron inks (Stampin' Up) on a 5 X 3.75 inch layer of Solid Bright White Smooth White Card Stock (Paper and More) using Blender Brushes (Simon Says Stamp).
Using the Misti Stamping Tool (My Sweet Petunia); I stamped flowers from the Embroidered Flowers Stamp Set (Gina k. Designs) with Versamark Emboss Ink (Tsukineko), sprinkled Clear Embossing powder (Ranger) over the stamped flowers and heat embossed them with a Heat Tool until the powder was clear.
I paused for about 30 seconds to make sure the embossing powder was dry. For my next step, I applied Basic Gray Ink (Stampin' Up) over the entire stamped/embossed layer using Blender Brushes (Simon Says Stamp) and cleaned off the excess ink, from the flowers, using a tissue.
For my grand finale, I placed the stamped/embossed piece on a layer of silver metallic paper, placed both pieces on the Bright White Linen Card Stock Base (Paper and More), stamped "Heartfelt Sympathy" (discontinued) on a 5.1/8 X 1.5 inch piece of Solid Bright White Card Stock (Paper and More) and adhered it to the front of the card base.
I hope you enjoyed the video. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Happy Crafting!
