Hello everyone , hope you all are keeping yourself safe during this tough time of Corona Pandemic. All we do right now is to evolve the ways to stay safe and work together simultaneously. We should be extra careful and smart to deal with this virus, as we do not know for how long it is going to stay.
Now coming to this blog post ... I will be sharing with you a tag and a card using Butter cup stamp set by Tubby Craft. For the tag I will be using Emboss resist technique.Emboss resist is such a versatile technique, it’s one of those that has been around for a while, but with all the new inks and embossing powders coming onto the market, it continues to evolve. This feature shows some fun ways to use Tubby Craft Ink with this emboss-resist technique.
Below we share a complete step by step in how to emboss resist for beginners showing how to achieve the perfect embossed resist with Tubby Craft Ink.
This technique can be achieved with a variety of different inks and embossing powders, but the main advantage of using Tubby Craft Ink , or even Distress Ink too, is that you can lift the colour from the card by adding water, this gives you countless more options for creating unique backgrounds.
In the advanced illustrated step-by-step guide I show how you can protect part of your background by using your clear heat embossing to protect the white card stock. In the intermediate-level tutorial I heat embossed first, then used the embossing to protect the card stock from the ink blending and from when I stamped over the top
- Use an anti-static powder tool to prep your card stock, this just eliminates the embossing powder from sticking to any latent fingerprints on your card, and will give you a lovely crisp result to your embossing.
- Ink the outline stamp from Buttercup Stamp with black ink to create an overall pattern on the panel. I have applied a washi tape for masking along the Tag.
- Add clear embossing powder to the solid stamp images now and heat until it melts and takes on a shiny finish.
- Apply your first Tubby Craft Ink colour over the embossing using a blending tool and blend it slightly further up the Tag than you want the first colour to be, this will help you get a nice blend as you overlap two colours to make an in-between shade. Repeat for all of your chosen colours.
- Now spritz some water to add some Interest to the background.
- Gently rub kitchen roll over the surface to remove any excess ink – this will help the stamping pop even more giving you a nice white crisp image.
Here is the final look of the Tag.
I also made this simple card as well . For this I just gave a water color wash in the background on water color paper. Later I stamped floral images from butter cup stamp set with various shades of Tubby Craft inks and mounted on a Die cut circular ring, Isn't this card perfect for the Mother's Day around the corner.
