Hi Friends! Today I’m hopping with my Stamping With Friends Blog Hop group and the first Saturday of the month the blog hop theme is always related to a technique. Today’s technique is Emboss Resist and I am using the new Share A Milkshake Bundle from the Jan-Apr Mini Catalog. After reviewing my card and post, be sure to follow-along using the Roll Call below to see the creations by my friends participating in today’s Blog Hop.
First, let’s look at the Share A Milkshake Bundle:
This adorable bundle comes with stamps (set of 16) and dies (set of 12) and is only $44. It is so so cute!
Here are the two cards I made:
Now the Emboss Resist:
I’m featuring this technique in the background of these cards. [I’m sorry to say I did not photograph each step — maybe another post for another time (but my mother is here stamping with me so I’m typing this up quick!)] But, this technique is VERY easy.
- Take a white piece of cardstock, stamp your image in Versamark, emboss in clear or white embossing powder (I used white so my images would really pop) so you have white on white.
- Using a blending brush, sponge, sponge dauber, what have you, add ink over the entire white piece.
- Wipe off with a tissue any excess ink and the ink will not stick to where you emboss. Voila!
Here’s a close up of each card’s background:
Aren’t they fun!? What a sweet background. For both of them, I used a blending brush with Polished Pink ink over the entire background and then I used a sponge dauber in Sweet Sorbet to accent either the cherry (on the left) or the hearts (on the right).
Here’s a look at each card:
That spoon just kills me — it is so stinkin’ cute! And I love that the milkshake die cuts a little slit for the spoon.
Anyway, these were super fun to make and this is a technique I have not thought of for a while. Hope you like them, and be sure to click the next link in the Roll Call below to keep hopping along to see even more great ideas with this technique!
Happy Stamping! Kelly
