ÔĽŅEmbossed Resist Technique Using Dies

by April Williams

Today I hope to inspire you with the embossed resist technique using dies.


  1. white card stock
  2. heart dies
  3. Velvet Sparkle embossing powder EP437
  4. Versa Mark ink pad 99702
  5. heat gun
  6. blue and red ink
  7. sponge applicator
  8. paper towel

I used the Brocade Border stamp from the Brocade Backgrounds set 398. Stamp this across your white card stock with Versa Mark ink  and add the embossing powder and heat set.

Keep doing this until the whole card is embossed.

The next step is to use your heart dies to cut hearts out of the card stock you just embossed.  Here I used the scalloped heart and the smaller heart to cut with.  You will see on the finished card that I laid the smaller heart in the scalloped heart area and formed a white space around the smaller heart on the card. I also did this with the little heart at the top.

I cut a smaller heart at the top of the card.

Now take your sponge applicator and sponge on the blue ink over the whole card.

As you see the embossing powder is showing through as a resist. When you finish, use a paper towel to buff over the card to get any excess ink off the embossed areas.

Now sponge red ink on the hearts and buff with a paper towel.

All you have to do now is to put your card together. I did not like the open cut out on the little heart at the top, so I covered it up with the bird and buttons. I hope you enjoy doing this technique. I will be showing another Valentine card I made with a different technique next Tuesday. I hope to see you back again! Have a wonderful day!
