VIDEO | Easy Heat Emboss Resist

Hello there, do you ever have a time when you feel like you are losing your mojo but you still need to make a card? If this happens to me, I pick a technique that I know not only is pretty easy to do but also gives a big impact - heat emboss resist! 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off my card by taking the floral image from the Altenew Mini Delight Light My World Stamp & Die Set and stamped it onto Altenew Lagoon Solid Cardstock using Altenew Embossing Ink. I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. I then cut the panel down to 3" x 4 1/4" and placed it on my sticky mat ready for ink blending. 

I added ink blending around the edges using Altenew Sea Shore Fresh Dye Inks (the three darkest) using an Altenew Small Blending Brush. I wanted a bit more darkness, so I added Altenew Jet Black Fresh Dye Ink just at the very edges with an Altenew Micro Blending Brush. I then blended that out with the small brush again. I removed any excess ink from the embossing using a dry cloth. 

To add a bit of sparkle to the panel, I splattered Altenew Sterling Silver Metallic Watercolor on top and set it aside to dry. Once dry, I adhered it to a US A2 sized white card base with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Altenew Mini Delight Light My World Stamp & Die Set onto more Lagoon cardstock and then cut it into a strip. 

I wanted to make this into a tag, so that I could have it look a little like it was wrapped around the bouquet of flowers, so I took the sentiment strip die from the Altenew Terrific Tags Die Set and instead of cutting it into a fishtail banner shape like the die is, I flipped it over and cut it into an arrow shape instead. I then pierced a hole into it, to look like a tag, before adhering it to the card. I tied a mini bow using Altenew Metallic Thread and adhered it to the tag using a little liquid glue, so it looked like it was coming out from the hole. 


Here is the video showing how I made the card:
