The 30 Day Christmas Card Making Challenge was designed to get us ready for the festive season, earlier than we might have without it. Each day a challenge is posted with a card that I have created for the challenge. If you are joining the challenge then please share them using the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge or join the Facebook page. Links to both are available below.
A little about today’s challenge…
Emboss resist is a super fun technique where you can have so many different outcomes. All you need to do is create some type of barrier to prevent the ink for effecting an area.
For today’s challenge I focused the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set  for this technique. I initially spent some time creating a large background however in the end decided to take another direct. As you can see I heat embossed the snowflakes in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder  before apply the ink over the top. Where the image is stamped the ink won’t be absorbed into the card.
I used the colours from the Bright Classic Ink Collection . Our ink pads are a firm favourite of my customers as well as a lot of yours too. Now the all our ink pads are available in colour families bundle were you save 10% or individually. A favourite question of mine is what’s your favourite Stampin’ Up is! colour? For me it is always Balmy Blue which is found in the Subtle Collection. I arranged the colours randomly.
I made this card multiple times, I won’t lie however there was a few elements that I changed for the better. Originally the sentiment was just stamped in Memento Ink  which I switched out of some Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder . This made a huge difference. As well as this, originally I was only going to use just three colours; Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo & Gorgeous Grape. By adding the additional colours the snowflakes from Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set  really pop.
