Emboss Resist Sunflower for the Paper Players Fall Blog Hop

Blog Hop

Happy Saturday everyone!  If you have been to the Paper Players Blog, you will know we are having a blog hop today!  Everyone on the team has created a Fall project!  We are linking our projects up on our blogs this week, and some of us have blog candy to share! So be sure to check out each blog.  Here is the Blog Hop the names to visit their blogs.

My card was created using the Sunflower background stamp along with Four Frames.  The sentiment is from Petite Pairs.  I used the Embossed resist technique on the background "First Edition" DSP.  I did mix things up just a little though, to make sure that my sunflower image retained it's color.  Of course, I had to add a little butterfly :-)   I did need a layout, so used the FreshlyMadesketches challenge as my inspiration


Card recipe - all ingredients Stampin' Up!:
  • Card stock:  Early Espresso, More Mustard
  • Stamps:  Sunflower (background); Four Frames (frame); Petite Pairs (sentiment); Kindness Matters (butterfly)
  • Inks:  More Mustard, Early Espresso
  • Accessories:  Twill tape (dirtied up with Early Espresso on the Good Grid stamp. 
  • DSP:  First Edition; Neutrals Patterns Pack
  • Tools:  Versamark Pen; Clear Embossing Powder; Heat Gun; Stampin Dimensionals; Mini Glue Dots
  • Card size:  5 1/4" square.  More Mustard Layer 5" square.  First Edition Layer 4 3/4" square
  • I inked up the First Edition with a layer of More Mustard
  • I then inked up my Sunflower stamp with More Mustard and used my Early Espresso marker for the middle - roughing up the application to give more texture
  • I stamped the image onto the First Edition and then used my Versamark Pen to lay down a layer of versamark over the image.  I sprinkled the image with clear embossing powder and heat set
  • Finally, all that was required, was more layers of More Mustard around the edges of the sunflower, making it lighter towards the edges
Tomorrow we will have a lovely challenge hosted by Ann!  What will it be?  Be sure to visit the Paper Players blog tomorrow morning to play along!  For now, please click HERE to visit Julie's Blog.  She is the next person on our blog hop! Thanks for stopping by!

GORGEOUS! I love the technique but I REALLY love the butterfly on the frame!


Jaydee, this is just stunning. I keep thinking I don't need that Sunflower stamp, but cards like this have me longing for it again. I love everything about this one.


Wow Jaydee, this is very effective. I love the flower in the background of the text, fabulous. Happy crafting.
