Less is More week 304 - Emboss Resist
Hi LIMettes, we've got a challenge this week at Less is More that I think a lot of you will love! We want you to make Clean and Simple cards using the emboss resist technique.
There are actually a few ways of doing emboss resist, but here's a link to a tutorial on the Craftsy blog for one of them in case you're new to this.
My first card uses snowflakes stamped and heat embossed in clear embossing powder, inked over with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks, and die cut into a frame using Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frames. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Hand Lettered Christmas, stamped using Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Stormy Sky Distress Inks to create an ombre effect. The stitched panel is Lawn Fawn Large Sitched Rectangles and I used a matching blue card stock for the base layer.
My second card would be perfect for batch making Christmas cards - so quick and simple! I used the Papermania wooden stamp PMA 9062901 Bauble Decoration, stamped and heat embossed in white embossing powder, then softly inked over it with Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks. The stitched panel is again from Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles, and I used a matching card stock for the base layer.
Why not head over to the blog to see the other DT cards and get some inspiration from our challenge gallery? Remember to get your entries in by Friday 2nd December at 10 pm GMT! Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!
