Emboss Resist Technique and the Lucky You Inspiration Box

Emboss Resist Technique and the Lucky You Inspiration Box

Hello everyone!  Thank you for stopping by today for some Saturday inspiration.  This is Daniel West here with a card I made using multiple emboss resist technique.  This technique utilizes clear embossing powder to trap layers of color, on top of the other to produce a finished card panel with stamped images of different shades.  The process goes like this:

  1. Stamp a card panel a few times with an image in clear embossing ink and emboss the images with clear embossing powder.
  2. Use an ink blending tool to add a layer of one shade of ink over the embossed images and wipe away excess ink from the embossed images.
  3. Repeat this process, each time adding a darker shade of the same color family.  


I used the four leaf clover from the stamp set in this month's Inspiration Box and different green surface inks:  Jurassic, Grass Stain, and Cabbage.

Then I inked up a piece of card stock with more Jurassic Ink, dried it and embossed the horseshoe image with gold embossing powder on it.  I fussy cut the horseshoe image out and set it aside. Then, I embossed a sentiment on another strip of cardstock I had inked up with Jurassic Ink using some green and gold embossing powder I had in my stash--but you can use Emerald Embossing Powder.  

I adhered the horseshoe to the sentiment strip and popped it up on some foam tape onto the front of the panel.  Then I popped up the entire panel with foam tape onto an A2 size card base made from Neenah Solar White.  

I added some gold half pearls from the Inspiration Kit to finish off the card.  

I have added below some links to the products I used for today's card. These are affiliate links, so by using them, you support me at no additional cost to you.  Please let me know if you used one of my affiliate links, I want to send a thank you note. 

Thanks for spending some time with me today and remember to create your own ending.
