Holidays From the Heart Blog Hop


The Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide is fun of wonderful new products and beautiful artwork. I used the Sparkle and Shine paper pack and the ever so cute Santa Claus (C1567) stamp set to create this card.

I embossed the Merry Christmas word stamp with VersaMark ink and Clear Embossing powder onto a perfectly cut shape from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge out of the candy cane striped Sparkle and Shine paper.

After heat setting, I used a rubber brayer to cover the piece with Ruby ink.

Wipe away the the ink that beads up the on top of the embossed area leaving the words and a small border to absorb the ink.  I added Red Glitz Glitter Gel to Santa's hat and let that dry. I then added Liquid Applique to the hat border and ball.  Heat the Liquid Applique and watch it puff up.

Here is another example of the Emboss Resist technique, again stamped on B&T paper, using the beautful stamp from In the Moment stamp set.

Hop on over to my web site to see all of the beautiful new items.
