Here’s a simple technique that can get you WOW’s!

Emboss resist technique

I so love all the fall colors that we have to work with.  One of my favorite combinations is cajun craze and crushed curry.  I combined these two colors when making the following emboss resist card:

???????????????????????????????We used two stamp sets that are featured in our Holiday catalog, For All Things and Seasonally Scattered.

First step is to emboss the “thanks” image on whisper white cardstock with clear embossing powder.  Next step is to us a dauber to apply the colors of your choice.  Here I used the cajun craze in the center over the verse and crushed curry on the top and bottom.  Then I stamped the oak leaf with cajun craze randomly around the verse.  You will want to have a piece of paper towel to wipe over the embossed image after applying all the colors.  Any area that is embossed will resist the inks, hence the name:  emboss resist!

This is a great technique which is relatively fast.  I am planning on using it with my Ornamental Pine stamp set also.

Let me know what you think!

Happy Stamping!
