Totally Techniques Design Team Blog Hop

Hello and welcome if you have arrived here from Nadine Weiner's blog as part of the Totally Techniques November Blog Hop.

I'm so excited to share my post today.  I was recently asked to join the Totally Techniques Design Team Monthly Blog Hop and to share some technique cards with you.  Our theme for my first blog hop with the team is Emboss Resist which is a fun technique that can be done in so many ways.  I've gone for a simple use of the technique here using the fabulous Stampin' Up!  Celebrate Today stamp set with Balloon framelits.

I stamped the designs on the balloons in versa mark ink one by one and added whisper white embossing powder each time after I had stamped.  Then using the large balloon shaped stamps I added the colour with basic stamping over the embossed designs.  The embossing resists the ink stamped over them and any excess can be wiped away with a clean tissue making the white design 'pop' just like the printed balloons you can buy with designs on them.

The balloon framelits make it so easy for cutting out the neat little bows that you can add like ribbons tied to the balloons.  I love these bold colours of cucumber crush, daffodil delight and real red and with a few of the self adhesive enamel shapes it makes a fun birthday card for anyone young or old.

Having shopped for myself in the Stampin' Up! extravaganza that's on until Monday 28th November I've got some enamel shapes to give away.  Visit and like my Facebook page to be in the draw to win a pack.  I'll draw a couple of names on Tuesday 29 November.  If you would like to share a post also that would be much appreciated.

Don't forget that you too can shop the Stampin' Up! Sale in my online shop.
