Beautiful You – Emboss Resist

By | March 29, 2017

Hi there

As mentioned in my last post I did a bit of a clean up of my computer and found photos of projects that I hadn’t shared with you!  Today’s card was made at the beginning of the year for a very special lady – our very own Stampin’ Up! Country Manager.  Emma works so hard for us – encouraging us, providing training, running events for demos and community groups where we as Stampin’ Up! demos can make a difference –  we all love her.  Thank you Emma for all that you do.

Now onto the card – the background paper for this card is the Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP.  It comes in six different designs  and when you add colour the design stays in white.  This creates the Emboss Resist technique.  You can do this manually yourself by stamping your image in VersaMark then adding Clear Embossing Power.  Once you’ve heated the embossing powder add your colour and you’ll be left with your design in white.  It’s such a fun technque to use.  With this paper the design is already done for you – all you have to do is add the colour.

I’ve gone with Real Red for this card and toned it with Basic Black – it just gives it a nice finish.

The image and sentiment are stamped in Memento Black ink then the ‘dress’ is stamped in Real Red.  I love how the Stitched Framelits nest nicely inside the Layering Ovals Framelits – two of my most used framelit sets.

Check back tomorrow for another project I found in my clean-up.
