Seaside Bay Emboss Resist Thank You Card


Step 1- Emboss the Watercolor Paper

  1. Using the Versamark Ink stamp the images onto the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.
  2. Stamp two images, then cover them with the White Emboss Powder. Shake off the excess.
  3. Use the Heat Tool to set.
  4. Stamp two more images and repeat.
  5. That way you can see where you stamped to avoid stamping on top of another image.

Step 2- Emboss Resist Technique

  1. Prepare several layers of paper towels to work on.
  2. Squeeze each of the colored ink pads to get ink on the inside of the lid. Open & set up in a line above the paper towels.
  3. Use the Stampin’ Spritzer to spray water on the embossed Watercolor Paper. The water beads up on the paper.
  4. Use the Water Painter to pick up ink from the lid.
  5. Brush the ink onto the moist Watercolor Paper one color at a time.
  6. TIP: In between colors, squeeze water from the Water Brush onto a paper towel until it runs clear.
  7. Dry overnight. Or use the Heat Tool to speed up the drying process.

Step 3- Assembling the Card

  1. Use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Seaside Bay Dies to cut one large & one small algae from the center of the Shaded Spruce Textured Shimmer Paper. C
  2. Cut 2 small & one large seashell from the Crumb Cake cs.
  3. Adhere the Basic White cs to the inside of the Balmy Blue cs card base.
  4. Adhere the Shaded Spruce Textured Shimmer Paper to the card front.
  5. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the embossed & watercolored card piece to the card front.
  6. Adhere the large algae diecut to the bottom left corner of the card front. Adhere the small algae.
  7. Adhere the seashells

Step 4- Bling!

  1. First add some Wink of Stella to the seashells.
  2. Then add some of the Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearls.
