Embossing resist is truly one of my favorite techniques. It is always magic to me.
There is a good tutorial HERE.
I used the Rubbernecker stamp, Journal Circle Flourish. It was originally designed to be a scrapbooking stamp, but I like it as a frame. Especially since Rubbernecker has SO many wonderful phrase stamps.
On both cards I used clear embossing powder, but white would work just as well. I also used the same inks on both. I use Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Dried Marigold and Spun Sugar. (I love to use Dried Marigold with pinks since it has such pretty pink undertones.)
I also used some Stickles (glitter glue) to add a touch of sparkle.
In this first card I used the sentiment stamp: Best Things. I made a simple cut between the lines "aren't things" and "thanks for". I can re-assemble them later if need be.
a true friend" sentiment; it can also be found in the Garden Tree set (one of my favorites).
Thanks for stopping by, today.
VERY soon I will have a tutorial featuring the demo I did at the Novi, MI stamp show in the Rubbernecker Stamp Company booth.
