Welcome to the November 2020 Technique Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be part of this fun collaboration with fellow demonstrators. This month’s technique is emboss resist. I can’t wait to show you my projects!
The general idea of the emboss resist technique is that you emboss an image, then add water-based ink to the paper to add color around the embossing. There are a number of ways to use the emboss resist technique, such as incorporating watercolor techniques. For both of my cards, I went with basic embossing and applying ink with a sponge or dauber.
I’ve been wanting to try out the Gold Cards & Envelopes, so for my first card, I did gold embossing.
After embossing, I added Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, and Crushed Curry ink to the cardstock with pieces of Stamping Sponges. After I was done, I wiped the ink off of the embossing with a soft cloth.
Oh, what’s all that on my grid paper? I stamp off my stamps when I’m done before cleaning them off with the Simply Shammy.
Isn’t that gold envelope amazing?
For my second card, I went with a more “typical” look for emboss resist with white embossing. I’ve been wanting to use the A Merry Hello stamp set for a while, which is the host set in the August to December 2020 Mini Catalog.
As a knitter, I couldn’t resist this stocking with its chunky cable.
For the stocking, I added Real Red and Garden Green ink with sponge daubers. The photo above shows what it looked like before wiping the ink off of the embossing.
I almost forgot about the new Essential Tag Punch! It is a great size for a few of the sentiments in the A Merry Hello stamp set. I punched a hole in the tag with the Detailed Trio Punch to add the Real Red 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.
