Distress Ink Emboss Resist Cards

Hi there and thanks for stopping by! Today I’m going to share a simple and very impactful technique – distress ink resist. You can use this with any stamps you have, heat embossing supplies and distress inks.

With a large background stamp, like I’ve chosen, or any individual image you choose, stamp with an embossing ink such as VersaMark. Sprinkle with embossing powder and heat set. I almost always use white for this but you can use colored powder if you choose.

Next, choose your distress inks and blend them right over the top of your embossing. Once it’s blended how you want, take a clean cloth or paper towel and buff off any ink that’s sitting in top of the embossing. Now you have this fabulous background that on its own is beautiful!

With these two, I trimmed them down to 4×5.25 and glued them to a black card base.

For the green/blue one, I die cut the hugs sentiment from the Avery Elle Simply Said Hugs 4 times from white cardstock and glued them together. Then I glued that to a vellum die cut of the shadow that comes in that same set. I adhered that to the card front. Next, I stamp and heat embossed the other sentiments from the same set, trimmed them into thin strips and popped them up with foam squares.

For the rainbow card, I die cut the Lawn Fawn scripty thanks sentiment 4 times from a teal cardstock and glued them all together. After adhering that to the card front, I stamped and heat embossed the small sentiment underneath from the Avery Elle Peek-a-boo Pals stamp set and popped it up with foam squares.

To finish both of these cards off I scattered sequins randomly from the bottom left to the top right corner.

I hope you’ll give this technique a try. I know you’ll love it!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
