Stamped Embossed Resist | Concord and 9th

Hi Friends!  Today, I wanted to share with you a technique I am calling Stamp Embossed Resist.  I recently purchased some new products from Concord and 9th, and I thought it would be fun to use the solid heart image from Heart Smile, and combine it with the sentiment heart image, from Cuddles and Hugs.

I made three cards using this technique, and I wanted to share how all three came together.  As always I do have a video tutorial to share, and any of the products I've used are listed/linked below!

First, I have the more "complex" card of the three.  With all of these hearts that you see, I started out by embossing the sentiment heart - two in gold embossing powder, and this one is WOW Red Apple.  I love the look of this red powder! And, it embosses wonderfully!  I didn't line up my stamp as well as I should have as you will see in the video, so I die cut this heart using the Heart Strings Die from Concord and 9th.  For the white card base, I wanted a bit of something extra, so I took my scoring board, and created three scored lines about 1/8" each apart on the top and bottom framing in the heart.

The die cut pieces were left in the die intentionally, and it helped me adhere these small pieces onto my card base.  I added two more complimentary sentiments from Cuddles and Hugs and I stamped and embossed these sentiments giving a nice contrast with the heart design, and white card base.

For the next two cards, I went a bit more simple, and I die cut this heart panel with a Right At Home Stitched Rectangle Frame ( one of my favorites), and this created a nice panel to adhere to some patten papers from Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid Rainbow.  I also added an additional sentiment to finish off this card design.

For the third and final card, I used some pattern papers from Concord and 9th, and I die cut that using a scallop rectangle from Lawn Fawn, and stamped the large HUGS greetings from Cuddles and Hugs - using my MISTI stamping tool.  I added some foam adhesive to the die cut heart, and added this to my black card base.  

I have the video below for more depth into how these cards came together!  Have a great week!
