Embossing and emboss resist techniques


Attended a great class last Friday night with Karen Rogers.  The first card we made featured sponging and the emboss resist technique.  The butterfly was made using the new Blossom punch and the Mixed Bunch stamp.  Looks great doesn’t it.

The lace effect was achieved by punching out a couple of strips with the lace ribbon border punch and using a temporary adhesive place it on your card front then sponge the background of the card.  When removed you have the lacy pattern showing on your card.  Very effective.



My first Christmas card for this year.  Karen showed us this simple, yet beautiful card using the same stamp from the Mixed Bunch set as the main focus.  It was embossed using the Iridescent Ice emboss powder which makes it nice and sparkly.

Hope you are having a great week.  Looks like the weather for the next two or three days will be spent keeping warm and dry inside – yep, perfect crafting weather.


Thanks for popping in to catch up on what is happening in my life. I enjoy sharing my love of stamping and cardmaking and invite you to have a look at the projects I have made. You are welcome to take my ideas and use them in your own creations.
