Sweet Summer – Emboss Resist

Today I have a one layer, emboss-resist card to share with you.

IMG_5436edited_edited-1I used a Little Tangles free digital stamp on this card. I used my VersaMark marker to trace the the Sweet Summer sentiment and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Next, I stamped over the sentiment with a variety of stamps from PTI’s Bitty Bouquets, Wee Folks and Brushed Blooms stamp sets.

Oh! I love those blocks! Too perfect. I want to follow this tutorial and make some of them! 🙂 Squares and rainbows? What’s not to love?

Here’s my card.

IMG_5431editedI used PTI’s Background Basics: Super Gingham Stamps along with 2 stamps from the Make It Market Mini: Clipsters Kit to stamp the images. Then I used 2 different sized square dies to cut out the squares.

Bubbles – Hello

Today I have another embossed-resist technique to share with you.

IMG_4951edited  For this card I used my new ARTplorations bubbles stencil. The stencil is a prize from Shery at Stamplorations for my being the April CASology winner.  Thanks CASology and Shery!

First I used my Embossing Buddy, sponged with VersaMark, applied and heat embossed white embossing powder and then sponged some ink onto the embossed card front. Then I added the sentiment.I’m going to play this over at  SSS’s Wednesday Challenge: Simon Says Stencil It, AAA Card’s: Game #40 For the Guys and STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge.
