We BEE Stamping Blog Hop - Sharing A Technique

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Hi!  Thank you for checking out our blog hop.  We are all sharing a stamping technique with you, so I hope you enjoy and like our ideas.

My technique is the Emboss Resist method.  It is one of my favorite techniques to do and it has been around forever.  I love embossing too!

Emboss resist is when you use embossing powder to resist color added to card stock.  For this project, I used White Embossing Powder on Whisper White card stock then applied my ink colors over top.  You could also use clear embossing powder and also use colored card stock.  The possibilities are endless. 

Card Details:

Stamp Set Bundle:  Snowflake Wishes Bundle

Card Stock:  Balmy Blue, Petal Pink and Whisper White and Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper

Ink:  Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Petal Pink and VersaMark

Accessories:  White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Snowflake Splendor 1/4" Ribbon, Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems, Stampin' Sponges

  • Balmy Blue card base cut to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2.  Scored at 4-1/4 on long side
  • Petal Pink CS cut 4-1/8 x 5-3/8, die cut snowflake from middle and set snowflake to the side. 
  • Adhere Petal Pink 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 piece on top of card base
  • Whisper White CS cut 4 x 5-1/4, randomly stamp snowflakes all over with VersaMark ink
  • Cover snowflakes with White Embossing powder then heat set
  • Sponge Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and Petal Pink over heat embossed snowflakes
    •    work on scrap paper & start swirling ink on from scrap paper to your project.  This helps prevent harsh ink marks

    • my words on Whisper White that is approximately 3/8 x 2-1/2
    • Balmy Blue CS mat is approximately 1/2 x 2-5/8
    • Add to card front with Mini Dimensionals
