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.

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Fall Is In The Air

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to our TEAM Blog Hop!  Our theme for September is Fall.  

I am excited as fall is my favorite time of the year.  The fresh, crisp air; warm and sunny days; and cool nights, not too mention the beautiful colors of changing leaves.  And I wouldn't dare leave out my ultimate favorite part, Pumpkin Spice Lattes.  Mmmmm.... I can hardly wait!

So what is your favorite season?

If you like fall too, you are going to love this card featuring the Plaid Tidings 6x6 Designer Series Paper Stack.  Stampin' Up! did such a great job in the plaid patterns and the color combinations.  Speaking of colors, there are at least sixteen, yes, 16 different Stampin' Up! colors featured with this paper, which I think makes it versatile for more than just fall.
