Initially I The Spot Challenge #136 – Emboss Resist Snowflake Wishes. What a great selection of projects the Design Team have for you today, all using the Emboss Resist technique. Remember you can see the other designs simply by clicking the Challenge Image.
Initially I was unsure where to start, but then I decided to us some of the Snowflake Splendour Suite of products, and especially some of the Designer Series Paper. I started by cutting a piece of paper larger than I would need for the final card. Using just two stamps, I stamped a few snowflakes in Versamark and used Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then heated the powder. I wanted to do a couple of layers of Emboss Resist, so added some Coastal Cabana and Highland Heather Ink all over the paper before heat setting and stamping more snowflakes to heat emboss.
After adding the second layer of Heat Embossing, I added some Night of Navy ink over the whole of the paper background. By having two separate layers of embossing, it meant that some of the snowflakes showed through as the pale Pool Party from the paper, while some were the darker Coastal Cabana and Highland Heather.
The result was close to what I had been looking for, but I decided it needed some more shimmer, so sprayed the paper with Rubbing Alcohol and Frost White Shimmer Paint using a Stampin’ Spritzer. This gave a wonderful all over shimmer. The sentiment was made in the same way as the background, but with just Night of Navy and no spritzing.
The Background piece was trimmed to size and mounted on a piece of Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper (which was gutted first). The spare Glimmer Paper was sued to may the sentiment. All the pieces were added to a Thick Whisper White Card base and then I added some Basic Rhinestones to bring more ‘bling’ to the project.
