Amazing Silhouettes Emboss Resist

Amazing Silhouettes Emboss Resist Technique

Thanksgiving brings to mind fall and the changing foliage colors. (In Arizona, we see some changing foliage, but not as much as North Dakota and Minnesota where I grew up.) Today’s card uses Stampin’ Up!’s Amazing Silhouettes stamp set and introduces the Emboss Resist technique. A little sponging makes this tree come alive. Check out the how-to video below to watch how I created this handmade card.

Here are a few details of how this handmade card comes together:

  • Start with Shimmery White card stock measuring 2 1/2 inches by 5 1/4 inches.
  • Rub the Embossing Buddy along the paper to remove any static (Note: find this and other embossing tools–Embossing Additions Tool Kit–on page 49 of Stampin’ Up!’s July-December Mini Catalog.)
  • Ink the tree stamp from Amazing Silhouettes with Versarmark and stamp on the Shimmery White.
  • Pour White Embossing Powder on the image, tapping off the excess.
  • Heat with Heat Tool until shiny.
  • Use Sponge Daubers to gently apply desired ink colors. I used Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry. Wipe excess ink with a paper towel.
  • Afix this piece to a Crushed Curry piece measuring 5 1/4 inches by 2 5/8 inches.
  • Add sentiment of choice (I used greetings from the Art Gallery stamp set) and Linen Thread. Any sentiment works for this card including Happy Thanksgiving. You can also use this card design for October and November birthdays. 
  • With Stampin’ Dimensionals, pop this panel up on a 5 1/4 inch x 4 inch Cherry Cobbler card stock embossed with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Attach to Cherry Cobbler card base.
  • Add Champagne Rhinestone Jewels
