Emboss Resist Flower

Card made with the Emboss Resist Technique.
Today's card shows an Emboss Resist Flower. This card was one of our projects at the September Stamp-a-Stack.  The emboss resist process is an easy technique that really produces a stunning result.

Are you wondering how the white flower shows through the dark green? The flower and the sentiment are both embossed - the "plastic" embossing powder melts into the paper and makes a layer that the sponged on ink will not stick to - hence the name "Emboss Resist".

Both images were embossed with Stampin'UP!'s white embossing powder. They were first stamped with Stampin'UP!'s white ink. This ink is a Craft Ink and therefore it is "gooier" and helps hold the embossing powder to the paper while its being heat embossed.

Stampin'UP! stamp set: Blooming With KindnessApparently Emboss Resist is a favorite technique of mine because as I look at my list of blog posts I see there are 8 of them showing different samples of Emboss Resist projects.  You can see all 8 emboss resist posts HERE.

Do you like this gorgeous flower and font?  They're from a set called Blooming With Kindness.  As if the flower alone wasn't worth the price of the set, just look at how beautiful the sentiments are.  This is such an elegant stamp set -  and embossing the words just adds to the richness of the look.


Are you inspired to try this project? You can buy the supplies to make this project from my Stampin'UP! Store.
