TGIF #118 | Embossed Resist


I know you weren’t expecting a blog post on a Sunday afternoon…. but I am aiming to add weekend posts back into my blog in the very near future… and when I saw this weeks TGIF Challenge I couldn’t pass it up!

Regular visitors to my little corner of the internet will be well aware of my love for techniques, and this week TGIF challenge is one of my favourites; Embossed Resist

TGIF Challenge Emboss Resist Thank You card using Bunch of Blossoms from Stampin' Up!

The Embossed Resist technique is really simple. Stamp your image (in this case, its leaves) in Versamark ink and emboss with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Then add ink over the top… the area with the embossing powder resists the ink and stays white. Simple. I used the leaves from Bunch of Blossoms in the background, and added Old Olive ink with a sponge over the top. For some added texture I varied my usual technique of swirling ink, adding some stippled areas too.

The flower is also from Bunch of Blossoms and is stamped in Flirty Flamingo and Smoky Slate, then each petal is individually punched out using the Blossom Builder Punch. I don’t make this flower very often, its a bit fiddly if truth be told… but I fancied something a bit special! That and while I’ve been clearing my craftroom as part of preparations for The Big Move! I found my glue gun…. which is another must for this particular flower!

The card is finished with a trio of glitter Enamel Dots, a sentiment and a few dots of Fine Tip Glue

  2. What a lovely card! You used this technique perfectly with the leaves as a background. It just sets of the rest of the card. Thanks for joining us at TGIF this week!
