I was reading my Paper Crafts magazine when I came across a technique I do not remember trying before and wanted to immediately try this easy technique. It is so cool and easy. All you need is White Pigment ink and regular Classic (dye) ink.

White Pigment Rubber Stamping technique
First I stamped the angled Whisper White card stock with White Pigment ink (must be pigment ink). I chose a smaller image without a lot of surface area. The smaller flower is stamped on the Whisper White card stock with the pigment ink and then allowed to dry. I then stamped the larger flower with more surface area over the dried pigment flowers. Can you see how the White Pigment ink as resisted the dye based ink and you can see the soft flower images coming through?

I like how this card with the new Simple Stems stamp set turned out and know I will be using this technique again. I love the soft image you get with the White Pigment Ink Resist. What do you think of this technique?

I am sending this card out to one of my downline that has just promoted to Senior Associate (Yea!!) and I just had to use the embossed brad technique. I did this recently in a class and just loved the look of the Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder with the Antique brads. I think it gives it an antique jade look.

Check out the close up below to get a better look at the embossed brad. Isn’t it gogeous and it is such an easy rubber stamping technique that can give such a “wow” look. You can color your brads with any colored Embossin’ Powder.

This embossing technique is so cool and I know you will want to order yourself a couple packages of the Designer Builder Brads after you see what you can do with them. I paired the brad here with my favorite Sale-A-Bration set Feeling Sentimental.

While I really love this stamp set, today's post is all about changing the color of the Designer Builder Brads with embossing powder. All you need is the Designer Builder Brad, VersaMark Ink, Colored Embossin' Powder, and a heat tool to complete this technique. I have so many ideas for these colored brads and in fact, I posted a different card over on my Facebook page. Check it out.

Today I have the Emboss Technique of Emboss Resist, but I added the twist of removing the embossing powder after I covered the card stock with ink. By removing the embossing powder you are able to stamp over the masked off areas. Just think you can make background paper with any image that you just love!

Emboss Resist Technique with Collage Curios
The flower that I used to make the "background paper" is from the Oh, Hello set and the embellishing was done with images from the Collage Curios stamp set. I have seen several samples of cards using this grouping effect and I really like it for the Collage Curios stamp set.

Emboss Resist Technique With A Twist
You remove the embossing powder by placing your embossed piece between two pieces of copy paper and then ironing over the top sheet. The heat from the iron will melt the powder and the copy paper will pull it off your card stock into the scrap paper. Now you can stamp over the masked off areas without worrying if it will dry.
