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.

Awow Blog Hop – Spring Blooms

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop. This month we celebrate the start of our 4th year as a group and I want to thank Angie Mckenzie who puts in so much effort to organising everything and keeping us running smoothly. I love this group and am grateful to be part of such a beautiful community.

Around the World on Wednesday Design Team Header March 2021, This is us

This month our theme is April Showers bring May flowers. Over in Melbourne we’re in Autumn so there are showers but not many flowers and it’s getting a little bit chilly.

We were given a double challenge to create something that reminds us of spring along with a technique. Didn’t matter that spring is gone, I still chose some spring colours and have followed the sketch at Sunday Stamps for my creation.

I started off by creating the 3 centre panels using the Emboss Resist technique.

EMBOSS RESIST PANEL
  • Using the Artistic Mix Decorative Mask, add Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Coastal Cabana ink randomly with a Blending Brush. Use Lighter tones.
  • Stamp the 2 different leaves with Versamark ink over the entire panel
  • Add clear embossing powder
  • Melt embossing powder with Heat Tool
  • With Blending Brush, go over the entire panel in the same colours. Apply colours a little bit darker over embossed leaves.
  • Wipe back colour from embossed leaves with a paper wipe.

I used the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies to die cut the 3 panels and then matte it onto Kraft Cardstock.

The card base was covered with a layer of Vellum with a subtle leafy pattern. On this, I added the 3 small emboss resist panels which had been layered onto a long die cut piece from the Irresistible Blooms dies. This was then added to an embossed panel matte with the Naturally Gilded Designer Series Paper. For the strip of Textured Shimmer Paper, I used the Balmy Blue sheet and blended Coastal Cabana over it to coordinate with my colours.

The flower was stamped twice, fussy cut and layered with some heat embossed leaves and smaller Early Espresso Leaves die cut using the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies.

I had to include my favourite Linen Thread and some simple pearls to complete this spring blooms card.

Thank you for visiting me here in cool Melbourne. A full product list can be found at the bottom of this post. Please note that some of these products are on the Last Chance list and are available only while supplies last.

Awow Blog Hop – Embossing Technique

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world in Melbourne, Australia. Great to have you here for our monthly, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop. If you are stopping by from my friend Leonie Stuart’s blog, I’m sure you would have been inspired by her beautiful take on an Embossing Technique.

For my card, I started off with a heat embossed border using the Decorative Borders stamp set. Over the White embossing I blended Pear Pizzazz, Soft Succulent and Parakeet Party inks which created the embossing resist technique. I added a bit more blending in Coastal Cabana on the top part of the Stitched Rectangle panel.

Using the Stamparatus to position my Butterfly Brilliance stamp, I heat embossed the large butterfly in White. Then I coloured it in Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay Watercolour Pencils. I used a Stampin’ Blend Color Lifted to blend sections of the colours.

On the card base I layered a piece of Vellum Basics and a layer of Basic White Cardstock embossed with the Hive Embossing Folder. Currently you can get this embossing folder free with a $90 order during Sale-A-Bration.

Inbetween the layers I also added some strips of Textured Shimmer Paper which adds a beautiful subtle textured look.

A wave die cut from Shimmer Vellum and some coordinating ribbon and Opal Dots complete my card with … a bit more embossing for the sentiment.

I hope you have enjoyed my embossing inspiration and give one of these techniques a try. Please get in touch with me if you have any questions. Don’t forget to follow our hop through for lots of beautiful creations and please leave us a comment as you stop by.

Next on our hop is the very talented Cheryll Miller.

Esad Blog Hop – Farewell to the 2020 Annual Catalogue

Hello and welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. I’m glad you are here and if it’s your first time here, I hope you find lots of inspiration to keep you coming back.

Today,I’m blog hopping with my demonstrator friends from the ESAD Facebook Group. We are sharing projects which will be farewelling products from the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.

ESAD Blog Hop, Farewell 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue, What is ESAD?

I’ve chosen the Seaside Notions stamp set and combined it with retiring and current product to create this beachy card. Every time there is a nautical or beachy stamp set, I always ‘need that’. So I’ve collected these stamp sets (a bit like collecting shells!).

The centre label was die cut with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies from one of the note cards in the Sweet Little Valentines Cards & More. This is one of the hidden gems in the current Mini Catalogue. The cards are printed on the front and back so you can stretch this out by cutting them in half to get more . You can see some other cards I made using this mini card pack here.

I stamped the sea horse and shells in Saddle Brown Stazon ink on Fluid 100 Watercolour paper. Then using Water Painters, they were coloured with Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral.

For the background I used the Emboss Resist Technique, heat embossing some of the coral with White Embossing Powder. Then I lightly blended some Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral over this, rubbing back over the image with a tissue to show up the embossing.

The sentiment was stamped on the other half of the notecard in the pack.

Emboss Resist Technique Challenge

The Emboss Resist Technique is such a fun technique and a great challenge for Day 14 of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge . Emboss Resist is a technique of stamping an image with Versamark and heat embossing it. Then when you stamp or add ink over it, the embossing ‘resists’ the ink and is visible while the background takes on the ink colour.

I chose the Peaceful Boughs and Christmas Gleaming stamp set to work with and then selected my colour palette.

The boughs were heat embossed in White Embossing Powder. Then I used a sponge brayer to add Bumble Bee, Terracotta Tile and Melon Mambo over the entire piece of Whisper White cardstock. I didn’t worry about the ink going over the embossing as it resists the colour and a bit of tissue would wipe that clean.

Once I had applied and blended all 3 colours, I wiped the excess off using a tissue. I found that the darker colours still didn’t make my embossing as white as I wanted. Using a cotton bud, I dabbed some Stampin’ Mist on it and set about rubbing the colour off the embossing. This brought up the white lots more and made it brighter.

The bauble was heat embossed in white and then I coloured it with Stampin’ Blends. I love how the embossing shines through.

I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink using the Stamparatus. This let me stamp it a couple of times so the sentiment was nice and clear. Then I die cut the word Joy from Whisper White cardstock and offset it giving it a shadow effect.

This Peace & Joy bundle has been getting a lot of use in my craft room as it’s so versatile with it’s layering options. A full list of the products I’ve used are at the bottom of this post. Every $50 spent in my store earns you 1 Stamping Flair loyalty point. Once you get 10 points , you get to select $40 of products from my Online Store.

Hope you have a joy-filled day.
