Welcome to the monthly Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  You are currently visiting Stephanie Fischer (The Crafty Thinker) from Australia.

Our theme this month is to highlight our Favourite Technique - I don't really have a favourite technique but I've chosen to highlight the Emboss Resist technique today.

Some Emboss Resist using the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and coordinating dies
I started out with a piece of Pool Party cardstock that I cut to the size I wanted for my card front.  Having swiped it well with my trusty Embossing Buddy, I stamped the image with Versamark, sprinkled with clear embossing powder and used my Heat Tool.

Using a small piece of sponge and Blueberry Bushel ink, I sponged over and around the embossed image, fading the shade out a little bit towards the edges.

Next, I used a Sponge Brayer to apply some Bermuda Bay ink all over the card front.

Since the heat embossing resists the ink, I used a little piece of tissue to remove the ink from the embossed flourish.

To finish the card, I white heat embossed the greeting from the Wonderful Romance stamp set and punched it out with the Tailored Tag punch then arranged it on top of some Blueberry Bushel ribbon and pieces cut from Pool Party cardstock with various dies in the coordinating Flourish Thinlits.

Thank you for visiting.  I hope you enjoyed this card.  You are currently visiting Stephanie Fischer - please see the list below and click on the next person on the list to hop through all of the people to see all of our projects.  You don't want to miss any!
