My goal going into the weekend was to make a stack of simple, but cute cards that I could use! I have a box full of these amazing elaborate cards that I've made from past weekends but I can't use them! They're just too cute! So I started the weekend by doing some embossing resist. Mostly I just grabbed some background stamps or stamps that would make a fun background and clear heat embossed them on shimmery white.
I used my sponge daubers to add colors over each of them, some have more of an ombre look then others. But I do love how all that embossing just pops through the colors. So pretty!!!
For all the greetings, I went through my framelits and found greeting that I could cut out that would work. I layered 2 of each greeting together to make it a little sturdier. They're much easier to handle and to attach to cards if they can hold their shape a little better.
I covered each greeting with some clear Wink of Stella then I covered them with some of our Fine Tip Glue. This gives them a glossy look and makes them look almost like enamel words. Plus thanks to the Wink of Stella they sparkle too!
I hope you enjoy these fun bright cards. Embossing resist is one of my favorite techniques. It's so easy and it's always so pretty!!! I have more to share from the weekend. Check back next week!
