Snowflake Soiree Christmas Card Making: Clear Emboss Resist Technique

Catherine Christmas, Embossing, Projects, Techniques

I had so much fun stamping yesterday, that I couldn't wait to get out of bed today to stamp some more!  Has that ever happened to you?  It reminds me that I am very blessed to be able to do what I love for a job.  Awesome!

I was even more excited when I saw the challenges at Playdate Cafe and CASE Study today, because they really got my motor running!  The challenges were a card inspiration and color (black, white and plum…Wisteria Wonder…not sure if it's really plum, but I went for it!)

The inspiration photo at CASE Study had Clear Emboss Resist going on and I wanted to do that, too.  I immediately reached for these awesome snowflakes.

First, I stamped the snowflakes from the simply gorgeous Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set in Versamark ink, poured on my Clear Embossing Powder and heated it with my heat tool.

Next, I used a Sponge Dauber to sponge some Wisteria Wonder over the snowflakes.  Now this can be a bit tricky…my first try went in the garbage.  Start in the center, dabbing and rubbing…then, gradually move out from the center.  As you do so, let up on your pressure so by the time you get to the outside of the snowflake, your color is very light.
