Double Emboss Resist featuring Dandelion Wishes

Hello Everyone,

Today’s project uses the emboss resist technique with a bit of a twist!

I love how it turned out!

See how I achieved this look by watching my video tutorial….

Using the direct to paper inking method gives a stronger, more solid colour to the background.

Here are both cards side by side for comparison.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Inspire.Create #050

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a sketch challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

And this is what I created!

As you can see, I opted to change the circle to a star….. I have been itching to use the new So Many Stars Bundle!

I prepared a Night of Navy card base and added to this a white layer stamped with the tiny stars in the set using Pacific Point Ink.

A smaller panel was masked off with post it notes and inked with Pacific Point. Stars were stamped over the top with versamark and embossed with clear powder.

The section was inked again, this time with Night Of Navy. Additional stars were embossed with white powder.

The sentiment was added with Pacific Point Ink. The panel was matted with Night Of Navy card stock and adhered to the base with dimensionals.

A large star was stamped and die cut and adhered to the card with dimensionals. A few adhesive sequins completed the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Inspire.Create #045

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a theme challenge.

The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

I have used the emboss resist technique for my project;

I picked out the Stargazing stamp set…. I thought the stars would be perfect for this technique.

First, I applied Balmy Blue ink to some white card stock where the sentiment would be. I then used versamark ink to stamp the images. These were embossed with clear powder.

I then added Pacific Point and Night of Navy ink over the top. A damp cloth rubbed away the excess ink.

The panel was die cut with a Stitched Rectangle and layered on to Whisper White card stock.

A Night of Navy card base was embossed with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder before adding the topper with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

InspireINK Blog Hop – Romance

Good Morning,

Welcome to January’s InspireINK blog hop. This month we are getting romantic with our theme….

As always please click the next button at the bottom of this post to carry on hopping through the other projects.

My project uses the Dear Doily bundle…. It is Pink but there’s not a heart in sight.

To make the background, I heat embossed the small doily image across the bottom corner of the card.

Pink inks were added over the top. The embossed areas resist the ink.

The larger portion of the sentiment was added with Lovely Lipstick ink.

Using the Stamparatus, two of the florals were stamped with Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick inks. These were die cut and adhered to the card.

The second portion of the sentiment was then added over the top of stems with a small Die cut element underneath.

More Quick Cards

Hello there,

Today’s cards are made with the Illuminated Christmas stamp set.

I made the toppers by heat embossing the stars on a separate piece of white card stock.

Sponge dauber were used to add the colour before punching them out. I chose Daffodil Delight and Balmy Blue. As a little extra I also add a vellum starburst behind it before adhering to the card.

The sentiment was added with Blueberry Bushel ink.

Coming Soon…..

Hi Everyone,

I have exciting news. 1st November sees the release of limited edition stamps and dies.

As a demonstrator, I have been able to purchase this early, and as you know, I adore snowflakes for Christmas card making.

This is the idea I am sharing today using a non traditional colour scheme.

First, I stamped the small snowflake cluster across the card using versamark ink and heat embossed with clear powder.

Soft Sea Foam ink was applied over the top with a sponge dauber.

The sentiment was also stamped with Soft Sea Foam ink and cut with the Everyday Label Punch.

The large snowflake was die cut from Whisper White card stock. I then embellished with faceted dots.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Three Wise Men

Hello & Happy Sunday,

Today I am using the Illuminated Christmas stamp set and doing some ink blending.

I started by heat embossing the star in the top corner.

Sponge daubers were used to blend in the background, beginning with So Saffron for the star and working through Pool Party, Balmy Blue and Night of Navy inks. A chalk marker was used to add some other tiny “stars” in the sky.

The three Kings were stamped and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. A stitched circle was used to die cut the image.

The final step was to add the sentiment. This was done simply by stamping in black ink, trimming to size and adhering with dimensionals.

Shine

Hi Everyone,

For today’s project I thought I would use the Making Christmas Bright stamp & punch bundle.

On a Whisper White card layer I stamped the circular motif with versamark and heat embossed with white powder. Balmy Blue ink was sponged over the top.

The sentiment was added with Smoky Slate ink. The layer was mounted on to a white card base with dimensionals.

The bulbs were stamped on to each of the 2018 in colour card stocks with versamark, embossed with clear powder and punch out. The fixings were punched from Basic Gray card stock.

Silver baker’s twine was adhered to the card base with Multipurpose glue. The light bulbs were added with dimensionals.

Merry Christmas To You

Good Morning Everybody,

Today’s card is a C. A. S. E of a card from The Creative Watermelon. You can see her original design here.

I really liked the watercoloured circle of Kaylee’s card. For my version, I used the Emboss resist technique.

The light bulbs from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set was stamped with clear versamark ink and heat embossed with clear powder.

Ink was pressed on to an acrylic block and added over the top of the embossing.

A white card layer Die cut with a layering circle die. The watercoloured piece was adhered behind the aperture and added to a Real Red card base.

Black card stock was die cut with an adhesive sheet on the back. The word could then be adhered straight on to the card.

The rest of the sentiment was heat embossed in white and then adhered with dimensionals.

Perseverance

Good Morning,

I love today’s project! It turned out just as I had hoped. I had seen a short video clip of swimming koi and noticed many of them had large areas of white on them.

I thought about how I could achieve this.

As with my previous card using the smaller fishes; I used the Stamparatus to build the layers.

Using sponge daubers to apply the ink; I started with a little bit of Gray Granite. Added Poppy Parade around the head and tip of the tail, then added some Pumpkin Pie.

I was careful not to add ink to the middle of the body. The final step was inking the whole thing with versamark. This was stamped twice to ensure good coverage and then heat embossed with clear powder.

Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam ink was added around the fish to bring out the “white” parts and the illusion of water. A light spritz with water added to the effect.

The final piece was mounted on to Gray Granite card stock and then a Soft Sea Foam card base.

Ihope you like this as much as I did.

A Special Birthday

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to this month’s InspireInk blog hop.

The theme this month is “Milestone Birthday”

I have to say this was a bit tricky, I really miss the Large Numbers for this sort of card.

Instead, I have used the small numbers in the Pick a Pennant stamp set and used it like confetti in the background.

I started with the large Happy Birthday from the One for All set, stamping this with versamark ink and then heat embossed with clear powder.

This was repeated with the little numbers.

The Pick a Pennant stamp set also had some cute stars which I decided to include in the design.

I wanted these to be yellow so I applied some Pineapple Punch over the card using a sponge. Once dry, the stars were added using versamark ink and embossed.

To complete the card, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Highland Heather inks were sponged over the embossing.

Excess ink was removed from the embossing with a barely damp cloth.

For some added interest I spritzer some water over the piece, lifting a little of the ink. Texture was added with the Scattered Sequins embossing folder.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Amazing Bokeh

Good Morning Everyone,

Sometimes I have absolutely no idea what I am going to make…. This project was one of those, but I am really pleased with the result.

This stamp set immediately caught my eye in the new annual catalogue so I started with the stamp. After trying a few ink colours, I tried heat embossing the image.

I then decided to use the emboss resist technique to bring out the detail. The colours I picked out were Balmy Blue, Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam. The ink was applied with sponge daubers.

For added interest, I lightly spritzed the card with water, dabbed off the excess and dried with a heat tool.

The panel was adhered to some Basic Gray card stock and then added to a Soft Sea Foam card base.

Rather than stamping a sentiment, I used the Celebrate You thinlits. These were cut from Basic Black and Basic Gray card stock. For some dimension, “you” was cut three times and glued together.

Finally, some pearl white adhesive sequins were added to the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Artisan Congrats

Good Morning!

Loving the colour combination on this card today. They are all part of the Neutrals colour family! Following the “Colour Revamp” Mossy Meadow has returned, Night of Navy has moved from the Regal colour family and there is the fabulous new Merry Merlot and Gray Granite!

I have used the Artisan Textures stamp set, (love this set) and combined it with the Lined Alphabet set to create my own bold sentiment.

The letters were stamp first with clear Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear powder.

Each of the inks were used to stamp over the top of the embossed letters, then the excess gently wiped away. This added to the grungy effect.

Gray Granite was used to add some extra texture. The panel was trimmed down and mounted on to black card stock.

Some Linen Thread was wrapped around the bottom of the panel before adhering to the card base.

The additional portion of the sentiment was taken from the Itty Bitty Greetings set. This was also stamped in clear Versamark ink on to black card. This was heat embossed with white powder. This was added to the card using dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.
