As promised, this is another card I made using the emboss resist technique. I love the birdcage from Happy Moments that I’ve used on this card! The birdcage is sooo sweeeet 🙂 And I also love the “hello” sentiment, from the Hello Again stamp set. Today is also the last day of the Summer Mini Catalogue, and so it’s also the last day you can purchase Hello Again. The flowers on the background were sparkled up with a touch of Tombow glue and some Olive Fine Supernova glitter – I love bling!
This is another card from the same class – I encourage trying different images and products in classes from what I have available. In this card, I changed the Fine Supernova glitter to Orange. Naturally, the Orange coordinates perfectly with this card!
Emboss resist is a really cool technique which, I thought, looked fab using Close as a Memory. Fortunately, I don’t have anyone to give this card to yet. I made it for a technique workshop the other night.
I stamped the flowers in Versamark, then embossed it with white embossing powder. After that, I sponged Kiwi Kiss ink over the image … and then polished it off with a tissue. Using my double-rectangle punch, I added the Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla satin ribbon which coordinates with the Kiwi Kiss paper I’ve used.
A beautiful little girl we know turns 4 next week and this is the card I’ve made for her. I hope she likes it!
I’ve used the emboss resist technique for the butterflies from Priceless. If you are on my monthly newsletter list then you will receive a tutorial on how to do emboss resist. One of the many advantages of joining my monthly newsletter!
The close-ups below will do the card greater justice …
I’ve used the colours Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac, Tempting Turquoise and Basic Black. I love the textured card stock – it looks great! I used Best Friends numbers for the number 4 and then my Lovely Lilac marker pen to write the “th”.
I also love the Stampin’ Up! Rhinestone brads … these look amazing!
And I tried a new way to use my marker pens! I used my Tempting Turquoise marker pen to colour the edge of my grosgrain ribbon. What do you think? Yet another great use for Stampin’ Up! marker pens!
