Welcome to Friday Quickies!!! I am so excited to be stamping with you today–I mean I am every day but I LOVE today's projects because I have something for everyone with this Oldie but Goodie Technique–whether you are feeling fancy or lazy! 😉 Emboss Resist is a technique that has been around forever–you simply stamp an image (usually bolder images work well) and emboss in clear or white powder on white (or light colored paper) and then apply ink over the top. The image resists the ink and creates a fun look! I have two projects in the video for you!
Gather Your Supplies:
- Eastern Palace Premiere Bundle
- One Big Meaning
- 1/2 Sheet of Dapper Denim Cardstock
- 3 5/8 x 4 7/8" Tranquil Tide
- 3 1/2 x 4 3/4" Watercolor Paper
- Dapper Denim, Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig, Versamark Stamp Pads
- Heat gun and White or Clear Embossing Powder
- Gold Natural Trim
Stamp and Heat Emboss the Flower image three times on the Watercolor paper. Color each on in a different color with aqua painters–darkest toward the center, lightest at the tip. You can totally go outside the lines, too! Once dry (or at least mostly dry), "spritz" with coordinating color on the aquapainter over that colored flower.
Add a Tassel on the ribbon and pop up onto card!

I love these cards. Looks unique, creative and classy!
Oh, it is always lovely to be called Classy! 🙂 Thank you so much, Angel!
Hi Dena, I just watched you making the two cards—one from the Eastern Palace and the other one says “Hugs.” I really like both of them. Thank you, too, for the thought that there are no watercolor police out there! Very good to know that. That way we don’t stress out about getting everything perfect.
So glad you enjoyed the cards, Pammylou! 🙂 Never want you to feel stressed about watercoloring!! 🙂
