WOW! Video: Wash & Emboss Resist Technique

On yesterday’s post here, I shared a pretty love card that was highlighted by a wash of color over a heat embossed sentiment.  Today’s WOW! video offers a demonstration of the simple technique as well as a closer look at the new design of the Stampin’ Up! ink pads.  The newly designed pads will be available June 1, when the annual catalog begins. 

Learn more about the new ink pad design and Stampin’ Up! Color Revamp here.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card base using Thick Whisper White card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer.  The trimmer cuts and scores.

Cut an Old Olive pattern from Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper to 5 1/4″ x 4″.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive.

Dry emboss a 4 5/8″ x 3 3/8″ piece of Whisper White card stock using the Polka Dot Basics Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive to card base.

Stamp the “live laugh love” sentiment from Layering Love stamp set with Versamark Ink on Whisper White card stock.  Heat emboss with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Lightly brush Melon Mambo ink with an Aqua Painter (filled with water to create a “wash”) over the embossed sentiment area.  Allow to dry and lightly dab embossed letters with a paper towel to remove any ink residue.

Crop the sentiment with a coordinating heart die from Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies.  I used the Big Shot Magnetic Platform to keep the die in place during it’s journey through the Big Shot.  Add a single Melon Mambo dot from Brights Enamel Shapes.  Dots are the sweetest little “beauty marks!”

Tie a piece of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine in a bow around a 4″ x 1 1/2″ piece of Melon Mambo card stock.  Adhere to the polka dot embossed pattern using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere heart to the Melon Mambo layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Crop two stems from Old Olive card stock with the Leaf Punch.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive below the heart and baker’s twine (on left).
