Emboss Resist Mixed Bunch Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a technique challenge for you – emboss resist.  This technique is lots of fun!  If you haven’t done it before, there’s a great tutorial and video on SCS.  For my card this week I used the Mixed Bunch stamp set and coordinating Blossom punch.  I stamped the flower images then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I added color with sponge daubers and embellished with basic rhinestones colored with Sharpies.  The sentiment is stamped with Versamark and Melon Mambo then heat embossed with clear.  I made a triple loop bow using the 1/2″ Daffodil Delight seam binding.

Color Blocking with a Mixed Bunch

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color blocking technique challenge.  Color blocking can be achieved by using blocks of color.  You can create this technique with ink and stamps or with paper and dies.  My color blocking technique is achieved with die cut flowers made with the Blossom punch and stamped with the Mixed Bunch stamp set.  I wanted to focus on color so I made a clean and simple card with a Whisper White card base and layer.  Each flower is embellished with a rhinestone.  The flowers are stamped tone on tone.
