June's Club Cards.....continued

Here is the 2nd card from Stamp Club.   This card uses one of my favorite techniques and I love, love this Hostess set, Love and Care from the Summer mini catalog which is good til the end of August.

The technique I used is called Emboss Resist.   To start, you take a piece of whisper white card stock, stamp your image using versamark ink and emboss this image using clear embossing powder.  After using the heat tool to emboss the image, let cool a minute or 2 and start sponging colors around and over the embossed image.   When you are satisfied with your sponging, buff the embossed images with a paper towel.   These images "resisted" the ink and now "pop" up..  You can even stamp over these images and the ink will resist on the embossed images.  With the butterfly from Strength and Hope (Making a Difference stamp set) from the Summer Mini catalog (check inside back cover of the Summer Mini for more information on Making a Difference).

 This card is without the butterfly image.   Both cards are Night of Navy card stock for the card, I used Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze (my favorite color, at least now), Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy inks were sponged over the embossed images.   I stamped the sprig stamp with baja breeze ink on and around the embossed images.  I backed the image with baja breeze card stock, punched with the heart border punch and tied it all together with some wonderful night of navy satin ribbon.
The new Idea Book and Catalog arrived at my doorstep today.  Those members of my stamp club get theirs for FREE.  Want yours for FREE, contact me to find out how.
