Hello Stampin’ Friends! Today I want to share some fun card ideas with all of you that showcase the Frosted Medallions stamp set and the emboss resist technique. I was attracted to the Frosted Medallions stamps set because of the large beautiful medallion that comes in the set as well as the color combos used with this product suite in the holiday catalog. The medallion is perfect for the emboss resist technique!
Heat embossing is one of my favorite things to do! I love the look of the images when they are embossed. To make these cards, you want to start out by embossing white on white. So start with a whisper white card base or cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock to do your stamping on. Rub the embossing buddy across the white cardstock. This prevents the stray bits of embossing powder from ending up in places on your card that you don’t want them to be! Grab the large medallion image and ink it up with versa mark. Stamp it on your white cardstock. Sprinkle some white embossing powder all over the versa marked image, tap off the excess powder and heat to set. Note: It will be a little difficult to see the image because you are embossing white on white so tilt the cardstock as you heat set it so that you can see when it is set.
Once you have embossed the image, start sponging color onto the embossed image. The color will not stick to the embossed image but it will stick to the white cardstock in between all of the fine details of the embossed image! I typically start sponging in the middle of the embossed image and work my way out. For these particular cards, I used Sweet Sugarplum and Soft Sky ink for the sponging. You can design these cards any way you like! Here are a few examples! Enjoy!
