Emboss Resist Paper Blooms Challenge

Over at the Paper Blooms blog the challenge this week was to use the emboss resist technique.  I like challenges like this, because it's typically something I wouldn't do but like to do.
Stamps:  Beautiful Butterfly (CD Stamps)
Ink:  Versamark, Orchid Opulence, Mellow Moss
Paper:  Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories:  handmade blooms from Paper Blooms, clear embossing powder, sponge, green dew drops, Peony Nestabilities

Remember you don't have to have any of Leah's gorgeous blooms to play along, but if you want you can go check out her stash at her Etsy Shop.  We'd love to see what you come up with.


  1. THIS IS GORGEOUS! WOW! I love this!
    I cant wait to try out this technique!

  2. This is gorgeous Cassie! Love your colors, design, embossing resist and crocheted flowers!!

  3. Really, another new nestie? Stay strong Christi, stay strong...
    Anyway, thanks for the inspiration and the link for the tutorial. I really had fun with this! Your example is breathtaking!

  4. This is just STUNNING!!!!!! I really love how you used two colors - I used two - but they were in the same color family so it didn't give as much impact as this - this is just STUNNING!!!! Wonderful job!

  5. Cassie, this is gorgeous! You definitely rocked this technique!
    Great job!
    Blessings, Maria

  7. Oh so springy and soft. I like the butterflies in the white with the colors behind them. Great job.

  8. Sometin' you don't typically do, but it looks professional as anythin' I've ever seen! I should recommend you to my friends who are gettin' married, they'd love to have fancy invitations 'n such!
