Emboss Resist Technique – Inked & Tiled Stamp Set

The Emboss Resist Technique is so simple but yields such effective results. If you have not heard of this technique – you heat emboss an image and then when you add colour over it, the heat embossed image ‘resists’ the colour and the stamped image shows through while the colour is in the background.

Inspired by Susan Wong’s creation for the Global Design Project GDP404 – Case the Designer Challenge I wanted to recreate the blended circle element Susan had on her project along withe the colour palette.

I stamped the leaf image from the Inked & Tiled stamp set inVersamark and heat embossed it in White. Then I blended a range of blue inks from lightest to darkest, over the samped images. I wiped back the colour off the leaves with a tissue which brought up the white.

For the matte layer I cut apart one of the cards from the Kraft Notecards & Envelopes pack. This pack comes with 20 notecards and envelopes plus a box to assemble which you can put the cards in once you’ve created them. It’s great for gift giving.

The card had a score line in the centre so I added some additional score lines using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool.

I added some leaves in Garden Green die cut from the Meadow Dies to resemble the trees in the original image. Another leaf die cut from the Kraft notecards tied the matte layer in with the focal image. You can see another card I made some years back using the Emboss Resist technique here.

I kept the rest of the card clean with a simple White heat embossed sentiment with the ‘happy’ taken from the Ringed with Nature stamp set.

New at su Blog Hop – In the Country

Hello and welcome to our New at SU Blog Hop for January. Our theme this month is Sale-A-Bration and a matching envelope. If you are coming over from Loni’s blog, I’m sure you would have been treated to something amazing. How cute are those carrots? Make sure you check out all the inspiration from our team using our fabulous SAB products.

I’ve used the beautiful In the Country stamp set which you can earn free with a $90 order during Sale-A-Bration. There are a range of products you can take your pick from and every $90 you spend will earn you a free product. This stamp set appealed to me right from the start.

I used the Layering Vellum Paper to create a vintage look for my cards with some ink blending.The stamped images were coloured with Watercolour Pencils which I just love working with.

I used the Biggest Wish stamp set to create my layered sentiments. Fussy cutting around a large sentiment and layering it makes it really stand out against these scenic images.

For my matching envelope I embellished them in 2 different ways. For the first card I embossed the flap with the Timber Embossing Folder to coordinate with my card. However, the embossing folder didn’t reach right to the top so I used a scrap piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock to fix that (meant to be!).

For the second card I stamped the image and simply blended Cajun Craze ink lightly over it.

I created a similar card on my weekly Creative Escape FB Live which I hope you enjoy. Please subscribe to my channel to be notified when I go Live.

Thank you for stopping my blog and please leave me a comment as you follow through to visit my friend Angie Mckenzie at Nature’s INKspirations where you are sure to be inspired by her beautiful project.

New at su Blog Hop – Peaceful Cabin

Hello and welcome to our masculine themed New at SU Blog Hop for October. At Stampin’ Up! there is no shortage of stamp sets to feature on projects for the guys – from sports to nature, wildlife, coastal and much more. I couldn’t go past the Peaceful Cabin bundle for my creation today.

New at Su Blog Hop Header

Timing was perfect for this blog hop as it was my partner’s birthday yesterday. So it was great that I could make a masculine card for this blog hop while having someone in mind while I made it.

Adrian is very much an outdoors guy, lives on the water but loves a bit of camping. This cabin made a great base for his card. I have never attempted the Northern Lights technique and thought it would be fun to try and create it on this card as a background for the cabin.

There’s a lot of colours and messy hands involved but it creates a fun effect. I started by stamping the trees in Night of Navy then sponging around the trees with Granny Apple Green and Just Jade. Then using my sponge daubers I added the rest of the colours in strong brush like strokes to create the markings across the sky.

Using a Water Painter I added highlights with Craft Ink.

I stamped the cabin in Early Espresso on Soft Suede Cardstock. I stamped another one on White Cardstock, fussy cut and layered it on top. The window was stamped in Bumblebee, fussy cut and adhered on top. Some Embossing Paste was added to resemble snow.

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the ‘Happy’directly onto the blended background. This allowed me to add Versamark a couple of times to get a crisper image. ‘Birthday’ was heat embossed on Night of Navy and cut out as a contrast against all the colours.

Colour Combo Blog Hop – June 2021

Hi, Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. Today we’re enjoying some lovely sunshine in the middle of winter and it’s a long weekend. So even better! Our Colour Combo this month has one of our new In-Colours – Polished Pink, so I have made it the main colour in my card.

I’ve been having so much fun with the Color & Contour bundle. The stamp set has pretty line images and the accompanying dies cut out the flowers. However, the pick of those dies is the nested scallop rectangles. So many uses and I just can’t get enough of them.

For this card I heat embossed the flowers in white on Basic White cardstock then applied Polished Pink ink using a Blending Brush. I rubbed back over the flowers with a tissue to bring out the white embossing.

The label from the Dandy Laser Cut Paper has been embossed with a new favourite product of mine – the Checks and Dots Embossing Folders. Then I individually coloured each dot with the Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend.

Now where is that Poppy Parade? I added some in the centre of the die cut flower and blended it out to the petals with the Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends.

If there’s a stamp sentiment you need to get for sentiments, it’s the Biggest Wish stamp set. Great large sentiments that can be mixed to form different combinations. At $30 it’s a stamp set that will be used many times over …. and that’s just the birthday greeting.
