Hi card making friends, my share today is a sneak peek of Thoughtful Branches and the resist technique.
Thoughtful Branches is an Exclusive Limited Time Bundle from Stampin Up. It will be available for customer purchase Aug 2 – 31st – however, Demonstrators are able to receive it as a pre-order in the month of July.
This is my first card with this amazing bundle and I’m in love.
On to the details of my Thoughtful Branches and the Resist Technique share for today:
Sandi’s Tips and Tricks:
- Use VersaMark Ink to stamp the solid leaf repeatedly on a piece of Shimmery White card stock.
- Cover with White Embossing Powder, shake off the excess and heat set.
- When Cool, use Sponges and a circular motion to add ink over the entire piece. I started with Mint Macaron and added Bermuda Bay around the edges.
- The embossed images will “resist” the ink (hence the name of the technique), and will pop up as white with your beautiful sponged background.
- I stamped the little “dots” in the stamp set (small flower top), with Crumb Cake (stamped off technique) to add further interest to the background.
- Attach the art piece to the mat and then to the card base.
- Attach the three layers of ribbon
- Repeat the “resist” technique for the sentiment and then use the Layering Circles Framelits to cut it and the Bermuda Bay mat out.
- Attach to the card with Dimensionals.
- The layers of green and white leaves are cut out using the Beautiful Branches Thinlits (part of the new exclusive bundle),
- Attach them with Multipurpose glue.
- add a Linen Thread Bow, a Brights Enamel Shapes and a couple of pearls and you are done!
