Hero Arts, May Arts, Teresa Collins

This is my second card doing resist stamping - I am taking an online class - Inspiration Showcase taught by Jennifer McGuire.  I am learning lots - I wish I could just stay home every day and play but MaMa has to work to buy new stamping supplies. 

This particular technique is Patterned Paper Trapped Embossed Resist - you stamp your design on pattern paper (I had this great paper with just the word WISH on it - of course you think birthday).  You heat emboss with clear embossing powder and then rub distress ink over the image.  Wipe the ink off the stamped image.  It has the look of fall to it - perfect for a fall birthday.  I made the flower using two Hero Art flower stamps.  I first stamped the flower with distress ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Cut them out and layered them.  I had that great brad which was the perfect center for my flower.  I added the May Arts Ribbon with a little twine across the top.

I think I will enter this at Lily Pad because they have a challenge for the month of September for resist techniques - I am sure I will be making a few more resist cards this month.  I know I will be making a few more of these cards.  They will make great cards for Operation Write Home also - I will just use a smaller brad for the flower center.

Well I need to do dishes before I can play.
