How to Emboss resist dramatic backgrounds | Catherine Pooler Coming Up roses

One of the first heat embossing techniques that I learnt with emboss resist. It is such a fun and easy technique and you can create backgrounds in no time! These two cards feature the beautiful new Comming Up Roses background stamp set and I’ve got two beautiful colours ways to create dramatic backgrounds that just pop. This background releases with the Celebrate Spring release on 9th March, but if you’re a StampNation member, you’ll get early access on the 8th of March!

EMBOSS RESIST DRAMTIC BACKGROUNDS

EMBOSS RESIST DRAMTIC BACKGROUNDS: FIRST COLOURWAY

Stamp in WOW! Clear Ultra Slow drying embossing ink the Comming Up Roses background stamp set . Next, cover this in WOW! Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder and heat set. 

EMBOSS RESIST DRAMTIC BACKGROUNDS

With an ink blending brush, start to blend Serenade ink in circular motions fading this out into the middle. Next, ink blend Drive-in but do not bring the colour in as much. Repeat with Grape Crush and finish by just darkening the edges with Dress Blue. 

Use a dry cloth to remove excess ink from the embossing. Add a heat embossed sentiment from the Mother & Daughter Sentiments stamp set and embellish with gold matt sequins. 

EMBOSS RESIST DRAMTIC BACKGROUNDS: SECOND COLOURWAY

For this card, I started off with a soft pink cardstock. Once you’ve stamped and heat embossed the Comming Up Roses background stamp set in WOW! Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder , ink blend Be Mine ink onto the card. 

EMBOSS RESIST DRAMTIC BACKGROUNDS

Next, ink blend Pucker Up and Glam ink onto the card to darken up the edges to add drama.

 Again this card with finished with another sentiment from the Mother & Daughter Sentiments stamp set and finish with sequins from the Helsinki Sequin mix.
