Papertrey Emboss Resist Challenge

By Taheerah | 6th February 2010 | 13 Comments

Hey everyone,
Well, I hope you’ll forgive me as it’s really late here and I need to get to bed, so I’ll not be posting as much of a chatty description of this card tonight as I would usually do! I will sort that out as soon as I get a chance!
Nichole posted a challenge to create a card which showcases the emboss resist technique. I had a lot of fun coming up with my creation:
I started by stamping Background Basics: Hearts using Sweet Blush ink on a piece of Stamper’s Select White cardstock. I then stamped the flower trio from Blooming Button Bits with Versamark ink, sprinkled on clear embossing powder and heat embossed.
I then took a tissue and rubbed in some Sweet Blush ink around the blooms to make them pop. Love how this turned out! I then overstamped the largest flourish from Fancy Flourishes using Hibiscus ink. I then took a clean tissue and rubbed over the blooms to remove any ink that was on top of the embossed area.

I chose a trio of clear buttons from my Cream & White buttons and adhered with Pinflair Glue Gel. I then cut my piece of cardstock to my chosen size and stamped my sentiment using True Black ink. I inked the edges with Sweet Blush ink, matted the design onto a piece of Hibiscus Burst cardstock and then adhered that to a Sweet Blush card base.
Finally I punched a butterfly from Sweet Blush cardstock using my Martha Stewart butterfly punch, put a piece of Scor-Tape on it and punched again (not recommended – took ages to de-gunk my punch afterwards!) then sprinkled on different colours of Martha Stewart glitter. The butterfly was adhered using Pinflair Glue Gel.

Phew, guess I had a few words in me after all! I’d love to know what you think of this card, but for now I’m off to bed, night!

  1. Nice job with the technique. Love the little butterfly too. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and leaving such a nice comment about my work as well!

  2. Soooooo pretty! I love the way you've incorporated the flourishes!
    Wish I had a chance to play but feeling very groggy with no mojo at all :o( ah well, I can always play later!
    Aren't you so happy about the new dies and challenge Mondays! A whole new reason to love Mondays!
