Winnie and Walter Leading Lady Week 3 – Emboss Resist

Hi everyone!  Welcome back to week 3 of my Leading Lady reign at Winnie and Walter.  Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my first two posts.

For week three, I used the emboss resist technique to create cards using the great Winnie and Walter products.  This technique is designed to leave the stamped image white while adding color to the background.  The stamped image will “resist” the ink (thus the name).

For my first card, I stamped the cascading hearts from the stamp set Scenery: Seeing Hearts in embossing ink, covered it in white embossing powder, and heat set it.  I think inked up that panel using 3 shades of pink Distress ink.  As you can see the hearts “resisted” the ink.  I did the same thing with the You So Much sentiment from In a Word: Love stamp set.  I thought the panel need a little more pizzazz, so I used on of the dies from Georgette Borders to add some detail to the bottom of the panel.

I used the Love die from  In a Word: Love Coordinating Cutaways (have I mentioned I adore this die!)  I die cut it three times and layered them together.  The top layer is in silver glitter paper.  I adhered them to the card base to finish the card.

For the second card, I embossed the sentiment on a scalloped circle, then layered three shades of distress ink on it.  The back panel uses the same three shades of ink with a stencil.  I water colored the bunny using distress inks and fussy cut it out and layered all the pieces onto a gray card base.  The sentiment and bunny are from the Party On with Evilin T Designs stamp set.  I added a few clear Nuvo drops to finish the card.

Thanks again for the love last week, join me next week for the big finally and a chance to win a $30 gift card from Winnie and Walter on my blog.

  2. Really like the stamped hearts background and colors on the first card and how you used the stencil for the second one. Great cards!

  3. Wonderful embossed resist techniques in both of these cards. Really love the colour combination on the last card.

  4. These are two lovely cards !! That’s a technique that gives such cool results. I love your two backgrounds so much and especially how soft your blended colors are, as well as the colors combos you used. They’re really sweet !

  5. Love love love the white heat embossing!! Embossed resist is a technique I really like but always forget to use. The first card is beautifully simple but packs a big punch with that bold die cut word and the cute little hearts.
