EMBOSS RESIST WITH A WATERY SPLASH + VIDEO!

Our Friday Flicks Video today I’m sharing a card with the Emboss Resist Technique. You might have tried it but we are stepping it up.

I am using the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set. Those large sunflowers is so striking with it.

The video is now on YouTube or you can watch it here. Be sure to stay to the end to see a different colour variation.

Here is the card I made from the video.

Any of the products are available to order in my store -> HERE.

Or you can contact me directly.

If you try this technique why don’t you share it with me. Email me at jghayward@yahoo.com

Have a great day,

SOFT PEACEFUL REFLECTION!

A few weeks ago I was playing around with the set Peaceful Reflection.  I share a z-fold card some time ago (if you missed it see it ->HERE)

Today’s card I had in my head and was pleased it turned out as I thought.

Some quick details on it: 

The ripples are stamped in Versamark on Whisper White card and heat embossed in White.  Then sponged over with Pool Party ink to create an emboss resist effect.

The large waterlily is stamped on Vellum in Versamark and heat embossed in White and coloured with the Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.  It was then hand-cut around and adhered on to the white card.

The Dragonfly is stamped on Vellum and heat embossed in Copper powder.  Then coloured with the Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends and hand-cut and adhered on to the card.

The sentiment is from the Petal Palette set and heat embossed in Copper.  It is cut with a label die from the Petals and More Thinlits.  I sponged around the edge with Pool Party ink.

The decorative strip is cut from Copper Foil with the die from the Petals and More Thinlits.  

It was all adhered to a Pool Party card base.

I like the softness of how this card turned out.

Thanks for visiting.  I have more with this set that I will share later in the week.

STARLIGHT EMBOSS RESIST CARD!

This is the 2nd project from my Christmas in July Online event that I thought I would share with you.

This card uses the Emboss Resist Technique.  Heat embossing itself is such a magical technique but add the ink to it and you get a WOW! effect – I think anyway.

Here is the card. I have used the Star of Light Stamp set and the Starlight Thinlits. I have a video below for you to check it out yourself.

Thanks for visiting and checking it out.  Be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel so you get regular updates as I start venturing in to this world.  I would appreciate your feedback too for this Youtube novice. 🙂

HOLIDAY CATALOGUE BLOGHOP!

International blog hop Sep 1

International blog hop images

I’m excited to be a part of this International Blog Hop as we showcase some exciting new products from the Holiday Catalogue! Are you ready?? It’s just a small one but I think you are going to love these projects.  You might have come from Alexe‘s blog or just starting here.  Don’t worry you can hop anywhere.

For my projects today I am showcasing the Paisleys & Posies stamp set and the Paisley Framelits.  These new products are so fun and cheery.  I reckon anyway.

For my first card I thought I would create my own dry embossed background.  Here is my card and then I will show you how I have created it.

Embossed paisleys

The card is on a Thick Whisper White base.  See the background?  I have embossed the Dapper Denim card using the Paisley Framelits. 

To create the background lay the Framelits pieces on to your card making sure the cutting edge of the Framelits face up NOT DOWN on your card.  Position them as you like.  Here is a photo to show you.

Embossing with the thinlits

Run the piece through your Big Shot on the platform you normally would with the Framelits.  Just double check your Framelits are facing up before you roll it through. (I made a little mistake with this the first time!!).  You will see once you run it through that the pieces will be embossed. You could try this with a number of different Framelits.

Embossed card with paisleys

I didn’t want too much to finish the card off so it didn’t hide the embossed pattern. I just cut some Paisleys from Gold Foil Sheet.  The sentiment from Tin of Cards is Heat Embossed with Gold Embossing Powder and cut with the Tags and Labels Framelits.

I have another card to show you using the Paisleys & Posies stamp set. I called on a technique and colour combination I used a little while back.  It was good to pull this one out again.

Emboss resist Paisleys

This one is the Emboss Resist Technique. If you are not familiar with it, Stamp your images in Versamark on white card and then heat emboss in White Embossing Powder. Sponge over the card using your chosen colours.  I have used Tempting Turquoise, Elegant Eggplant and Bermuda Bay.  Once you have inked the card, rub over the card with a tissue to wipe off the excess ink on the embossed parts and you will see your images “POP” even more.  It’s quite magic.

I finished if off by tying around some Thick White Twine then layering it onto Perfect Plum card mat.  I found that a better match than using the other colours that I sponged with.  It was then layered on to a Thick Whisper White card base. Just a note too: I stamped my sentiment from Tin of Cards onto the card before stamping any of the Paisleys so I knew where to position them.

Hope you like these cards?
