Emboss Resist

Last week I shared an Emboss Resist Technique using Wax Paper and on my Wax Paper Resist Video I showed several pieces that I hadn’t made into cards yet. Today, I’m sharing the cards that I made with those pieces.

For the Balmy Blue piece embossed with the Merry Melodies Embossing Folder I teamed it up with the Caroling Mice Hostess set from the July to December Mini Catalog. I even added some puff snow.

For the Pumpkin Pie colored Merry Melodies piece, I pulled out my retired Detailed Pumpkins Bundle and added a heat embossed, copper on pumpkin pie cardstock, pumpkin. Plus some Gold Foil and Mossy Meadow die cut leaves.

While I had my Detailed Pumpkin Bundle out, I pulled out my envelope of left over die cuts and added some of them onto the Crushed Curry piece done with the Leaf Fall Embossing Folder. The glittery pumpkin was done with a SALE-a-bration paper. The other pumpkins are done in Basic Black and Pale Papaya.

This card was completed with the Rich Razzleberry color done with the Fern Embossing Folder. I added some die cuts done in Rich Razzleberry, Evening Evergreen and Gold Foil from the Forever Fern Bundle. The greeting are from the Sending Smiles Bundle. This card seems off balance to me and may end up in the trash yet!

This card uses the negative space from the Sending die cut. The large oval was cut with a retired Oval Die set. The Wax Paper Embossed layer on this card was done in Cherry Cobbler with the Fern Embossing Folder. The hardest part of doing this card was making sure that I had all the little die cut pieces from the centers of the letters.

These last two cards are the ones that I made in the video using the Gingham Embossing Folder. One with So Saffron and Soft Suede.

The other with Crushed Curry and Basic Black.

I’d love to see the cards that you come up with using this fun technique!
