I love the Emboss Resist Technique because it is so easy and has such great results. I used the emboss resist to get the “Congrats” from the Bravo stamp set to pop out from the strokes of color.

Emboss Resist Stamping Technique

To control the color of the sentiment or the image you want to show through, all you have to do is change the color of your card stock. I did this clear embossing over Whisper White card stock so it came through as white. You could always use a different color card stock if you do not want your pop through image white.

I was looking through my sentiments and decided I wanted to make a card that would brighten someone’s day and use the Kinda Eclectic set we received at convention. It has been kind of quiet around here because I was attending Stampin’ Up!’s convention and just returned last night.

I think the starburst image gives kind of an optimistic feeling, like the sun coming up. You just cannot go wrong with butterflies and these butterflies coordinate with the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches so they are easy to punch out. I based this card on a fun sketch.

Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set

I recently asked what kinds of cards people like to send over on my Facebook Business Page and the most popular answer was “Just Because” cards and I think this one would qualify. Wouldn’t it be fun to receive a card to brighten your day? You can find the Kinda Eclectic stamp set in my Online Store.

The new Fabulous Four stamp set from Stampin’ Up! will be one of my “go to” sentiment stamp sets I am sure. I paired the Fabulous Four set with the great new Boys Will Be Boys set for this fun boy’s birthday card.

The vibrant color of the blocks and Legos come from the brand new Blendabilities markers. These alcohol markers are great for blending, but you can also just do a quick color with them and it is fabulous. I highly recommend the Blendabilties for even quick coloring.

You will want the Boys Will Be Boys stamp set if you ever make card for boy occasions. I know this will be one of my favorites with cards I made for my 4 sons.

Those small Zoo Babies make the cutest baby cards and so when I needed a baby girl card, I pulled out the Zoo Babies. The Sentiment from the Bravo stamp set is the perfect greeting for the card.

I like how the size of the images made this so easy to create. A few animals, sentiment and ribbon and that is the focal image. That Bravo set is perfect for so many occasions and you get so many images for a great price because they are Photopolymer. The Photopolymer also makes it so easy to see where you are stamping so you do not need to use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.
