Background Stamping + Emboss Resist

Welcome back crafters! This weeks Tuesday card making video is a little different, due to some computer issues I haven’t included a voice over and instead I’ve added some music to the video. I hopes you guys don’t mind, hey maybe you enjoy not having to listen to my rambling! (To skip straight to the video click here)

IMG_6937For todays card I have used the leaves background stamp that the nice folks over at Simon Says Stamp have released as part of STAMPtember. As soon as I saw this stamp I just knew I had to have it, it is a great background stamp for many techniques and I’m sure I will be  using this one lots over on my YouTube channel and maybe even on Periscope. If you haven’t downloaded periscope yet you are missing out but hey I can feel myself getting distracted.

On to the card. I used a patterned paper for my background stamping and I embossed the leaves design with clear ink. The clear embossing will resist the ink applied over the top and so by using the black soot distress ink I was able to turn the patterned paper black except for where the leaf pattern was embossed. I think this is a really great technique that you can use with many patterned papers and ink combinations.

IMG_6938To finish off this card I cut a simple blue circle frame and framed up a “Handmade with Love” button die cut. This made sure that the attention wasn’t taken away from the background and the embossed resist technique was the centre of attention.
