Happy Spring Embossed Resist Card

Today I am sharing this emboss resist card using Club Scrap's Spring WOW UM rubber stamps.

After a long winter here in the Northeast, I needed a bit of color to get me in the spirit of the spring season.

Follow these steps to create this card.

1. Use the word collage stamp to create the resist.

2. Stamp the image on white paper with white pigment ink pad.

3. Heat emboss with Club Scrap ultra fine clear embossing powder.

4. Color the panel using Ranger Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade, and Mowed Lawn.

5. Use the spritz and flick technique to create water drop marks in the Distress inks which react with water. Use a paper towel to dab off any excess inks that may still be on the embossed words.

6. Add stamped flowers from the UM Spring WOW set and accent areas of the image with white gel pen.

7. Punch flowers using Fiskars, Recollections and Martha Stewart daisy punches and create an embellishment paired with some sheer purple ribbon. The center is a Silver Dazzle sticker included with the Club Scrap Constellations kit.

Dark Purple - Sonoma kit
Dark Pink and Light Blue - Picnic kit
8. Complete the finished A2 sized card.

Card base Light Blue paper from the Picnic Kit.

  1. Fun bright and colorful card,Julie.
    This is such a fun technique.

  2. What a cute, happy card. Thank you for sharing!

  3. I really needed that colorful card today. It's been SO gloomy this week!

  4. Ok so this is funny but I am actually super impressed with you dumping the embossing powder into that plastic container for easier use. I have tons of those and putting the powder back in the little vial each time is such a pain...

    1. LOL - Janet, I got the idea online, go figure. I had gotten a bunch of those powder ziplock bags from Club Scrap a while back when they came in the Apothecary kit as a goodie with the blue tray. So I had plenty to justify getting dumped in the little plastic container. I LOVE IT!! Best thing I have ever done!

  5. Beautiful card, Julie! Love, love, LOVE the colors!

  6. What a cheerful, colorfilled card, Julie! I love the dimension you added to the flowers!
