Four Feathers Emboss Resist

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!

The delicate Four Feathers stamp set from Stampin' Up! that was in last year's holiday catalog was brought back in the current Occasions catalog. I got mine last year, but because it arrived so close to Christmas and I then got other new goodies from the new catalog, I'm only now getting to play with it. About time!

My first creation might not surprise regular readers and the post title is a bit of a giveaway too. Yep, I've used one of my favorite techniques, emboss resist and a favorite color, Pool Party...

Card: Whisper White (base, panel and a small scrap) and a scrap of Coastal Cabana
Ink: Versamark and Pool Party
Stamp sets: Four Feathers and Bloom with Hope (sentiment)
Tools: White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Feathers Framelits (bundle with stamp set and save 15%), Stamping Sponges

Stamp the feather from Four Feathers in Versamark ink randomly over the Whisper White panel and twice onto the Coastal Cabana scrap. Cover with White EP and heat emboss.
Stamp the feather in Pool Party on Coastal Cabana card and die cut those 3 with the Feathers Framelits.
Sponge Pool Party ink over the embossed panel and also over the small Whisper White scrap.
Stamp the feather in Pool Party ink onto the panel. Attach to folded Whisper White base card.
Stamp the sentiment from the Bloom with Hope hostess stamp set in Pool Party ink onto the scrap and snip into a banner. Pop onto the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Attach the die cut feathers to the card with Mini Glue Dots.

What a soft and lovely Four Feathers creation, Em! I love pool party - well, I love A pool party, too, of course, but I do mean the ink this time! You did a brilliant job with your emboss resist! And, hey, since it is ombre shades of pool party, why don't you edit your post and also link it up to this week's City Crafter Challenge Blog "ombre" challenge? Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS #4 challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

Thanks Darnell. I would link to the City Crafter challenge, but this post went live the day before their challenge and my product links would also invalidate the post. Hugs x
