Emboss Resist Lotus Blossom

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Welcome to day four of Lotus Blossom Week! If you've missed any of the other posts, or you'd like to take another look, here they are... Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Regular readers will know that I've recently discovered the gorgeous emboss resist technique and I'm trying to incorporate it into designs whenever I can. Perhaps I'll add an "Emboss Resist Week" into my to-do schedule for the blog? Please let me know if that's something you'd like to see and if so, which stamp set you'd like me to try it with?

For today's card I've used an emboss resist panel with the foliage from Butterfly Basics as the background for gorgeous Blackberry Bliss Lotus Blossoms...

Card: Whisper White, folded base, panel and extra for the Lotus Blossoms
Ink: Versamark, Pool Party, Blackberry Bliss and Pear Pizzazz
Stamp sets: Butterfly Basics, Lotus Blossom and Painted Petals (sentiment)
Tools: White Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Stamping Sponges and Paper Snips

Stamp the foliage from Butterfly Basics in Versamark 3 times onto the Whisper White panel, varying the height. Cover with White Embossing Powder and heat. Leave to cool.
Stamp the 3 step Lotus Blossoms in Blackberry Bliss onto extra Whisper White, stamping off before layers 2 and 3. Fussy cut with the Paper Snips.
Sponge Pool Party ink over the embossed panel to cover.
Stamp the 2 step Lotus Blossom stems onto the panel in Pear Pizzazz, stamping off before the second and varying the height.
Stamp the sentiment from Painted Petals in Blackberry Bliss onto the panel and attach to the folded base card.
Attach the blossoms to the base with Mini Glue Dots.

Although this card isn't the quickest to create, the finished look is well worth the effort. I love the design! and hope you do too.
