Check out our designer’s clever tip for making an emboss resist card background in a lot less steps!

It’s really fun to make images “float” on an inked panel and today, with this quick and easy emboss resist card background, you can use a number of images in just one step. That’s right – ONE STEP! Let’s check out how Julie did it.

First, Julie took a piece of white card stock and secured it in her stamp positioner. Then she selected the stamps she wanted to use and arranged them face down over this card stock, closed the top of her positioner and pressed firmly to adhere the stamps to the inside face of the stamping area. She stamped them all – all at once! – with Versamark and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder.

Then she sponged her bright and bold colors from Color Fuse Sets #1, #2 and #4 over this panel starting with the lightest first and working her way to the darker colors which she concentrated near the bottom. When she’d applied all the ink she wanted to create that gorgeous ombre effect with all those colors, she buffed the heat embossed areas with a tissue to remove any extra ink.

For her focal element, Julie stamped one of our Darling Dahlias, colored it in with her Copic markers, cut it out with our coordinating die and popped it onto her beautiful heat embossed panel with some foam tape for some depth and dimension. All that was left was a quick stamped greeting on a card stock scrap and this beauty was ready to go!
