Emboss Resist is a technique that creates a lot of impact for very little effort. On a small piece of whisper white card stock, you simply stamp the Brushstrokes image in Versamark ink, sprinkle with clear or white embossing powder, and then melt it with a heat gun. Using sponge wedges, sponge each of the five colors right over the top of the embossing. Wipe the remaining ink off the embossed stripes with a paper towel. So much fun while being a quick technique. Try it out!
It is always a fun time of year when Stampin' UP releases the new in color palette that is good for the next two years. I was ecstatic when I saw the new Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst. It reminds me so much of those neon colors that I grew up with as a teenager in the '80s. Simply fun and beautiful!

At times, it can seem like there are really limited options out there for making a masculine looking card. Stampin' UP has done a great job by creating this bundle of products to do just that. Appropriately named the Nailed It Bundle, this stamp set and coordinating framelits make this task simple. Pair it with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and you have a great looking card with minimal effort. But no one else will guess that!
Today's technique is simply to stamp the dancing girl image from the Beautiful You stamp set on very vanilla cardstock and the DSP. I used early espresso ink for this. I cut around the dress and hat with my paper snips on the DSP piece. Then you simply glue that piece on to the very vanilla piece to get the colorful dress image.
Featuring the new Occasions catalog Carousel Birthday stamp set from Stampin' UP and the matching DSP paper stack, this handmade card makes for a special birthday
This bright color palette makes for a cheerful birthday card. The colors play out in the watercoloring on the sentiment as well as the watercoloring done on the embossed image at the bottom of the card. It is really simple to color the embossing with the matching pencil and use a blender pen to smudge it. The sentiment "Enjoy" was stamped in Stazon and watercolored with the pencils and blended with a blender pen. The sentiment comes from the Everyday Tags stamp set.
