Stencil Emboss Resist – 3 FUN WAYS to use your stencils!

Happy Thursday, all! I’ve been acquiring stencil after stencil recently. There are SO many awesome stencils as of late, right!? So it was time to put some of them to use! Today I have a video for you will three cards made with stencils and emboss resist. These are super fun to create!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

Card 1 – Clear Emboss Resist with Ink Blending

For my first card, I began by created a heart shaped mask using the Nested Hearts die set from Simon Says Stamp and some masking paper. I applied the mask to white cardstock, and then taped the Bold Blooms stencil from Newton’s Nook in place. I pressed my VersaMark ink pad over the stencil. Then I applied clear embossing powder to area and heat set it.

I added color to the card design by ink blending using Life Changing Blender Brushes and inks from Gina K Designs. After the removing the masking paper, I was left with a crisp heart area with the stencil design inside of it. Super cute!

I finished off the card with a greeting from Simon’s Amazing stamp set.

Card 2 – Metallic Emboss Resist with Ink Blending

When I saw the Love Circuit stencil from Heffy Doodle, I knew exactly what I wanted to create! Similar to the first card, I pressed my VersaMark pad onto white cardstock through the stencil. Then I applied Gilded embossing powder and heat set it. This time for the ink blending, I concentrated the deepest colors in the center of the heart and worked out from there.

Once again, I used a stamped greeting from Simon’s Amazing stamp set to finished off the card.

Card 3 – Clear Emboss Resist with Water

For my third and final card for today, I used the same clear emboss resist technique but changed it up by using watercolor–or in this case, ink smooshing with watered inks. I used the Leaves stencil from Simon Says Stamp for this design. I pressed my VersaMark pad onto watercolor paper through the stencil and then applied clear heat embossing powder and heat set it.

I used the same Gina K Designs inks to create a colorful background with ink smooshing.  The clear embossing resisted all of the ink and left the stencil design behind.

For the greeting on this card, I stamped another greeting from the Amazing stamp set on vellum. Then I used the Xyron Creative Station Lite to not only “triple up” on the layers of vellum, but to also adhere the greeting to my card.

For a bit of sparkle, I adhered Crystal sequins from Darice (both 8mm and 5mm sizes).

Thanks for stopping by today!
