Try to RESIST this...

Another reminder about the 50% OFF SALE that is ending January 26th!!! The prices listed on my online store already reflect the sale price, so it makes it easy!! If you are wanting to place an order directly with me, you'll need to email it to me NO LATER than noon on THIS Wednesday the 21st so I can get it sent off before I leave for TAC's Leadership Retreat (can't wait!!).

Tic Tac Love card
Are you guys sick of the 'love' cards yet? Hope not, because I've got another one for you today :) This one was done using heat embossing resist (get the title of the post now?!) technique and spray ink, and I think it makes a really good 'guy' card.

I lined up all of the heart images from Love Doodles & Forever Family on my acrylic handle, and using VersaMark, stamped on a 3"x3" White UltraSmooth square. Then, clear Transcendence Embossing Powder was sprinkled, tapped the excess off, and heated with a Heat Tool.

I sprayed Tsukineko's Eucalyptus Walnut Ink over the upper right corner of the square and blotted off the excess with a paper towel. I repeated this step with Ranger's Denim Spray Ink in the opposite corner. The clear EP resists the ink, so the white shows through.

Then, all that is left to do is layer on top of a white & moss (Bazzill) cardstock mats, stamp the sentiment from Tag Tidbits in Starry Night Palette Ink and pop up with Pop Dots, do a little paper piercing in the lower right corner, and finally, wind some cotton cord around a Bazzill Mono-Blues card base a few times, and knot it up!

What do you think?

I love this! I like how you lined all those stamps up on one block. I've never used the transcendence embossing powder before...is so that you can emboss with regular inks??

Barb - I love this card. But, could you clarify how many times we should knot the string?? *insert evil laugh* Seriously, I think this was my fave at stamp club this week. I can't believe how easy it was to do!
