You're Seriously the Best - Ornate Styles Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a fun little card that doesn't take a lot of supplies and has a technique that everyone should learn so that you can beautiful cards relatively quickly.  My card today features the Emboss Resist Technique.  Which is a fun and easy technique to know how to do because you can make it look clean and simple, more elebrate, or bright and fun.  All depending on how you layer the colors.  I went with bright and fun today.  Here's a look at my card.  


I used the Ornate Styles Stamp Set from the 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog as the main focus on my card.  I stamped the large floral image in Versamark ink and then added White Stampin' Emboss Powder to it.  I then heat set the embossing powder using my Heat Tool set on the high setting.  Which is the setting you want to use when heat embossing.  Another tip is to let it heat up for a few minutes before putting the heat to your cardstock.  By doing this it helps the embossing powder melt a little faster and prevents your paper from wrapping.  


I then masked off (using low tack tape) the area I didn't want ink to be.  I started with this card by adding a piece of tape down the center of the card to make a plus sign.  I then masked off from corner to corner of the little rectangle I created  I used the Brights Family of Ink Pads and a blending blush to apply the colors.  I started Poppy Parade and did my ink blending in that area.  Next, I removed the tape that was masking of the other side of that rectangle and placed it over the Poppy Parade side.  I then ink blended in the bottom part with Gorgeous Grape Classic Ink.  I repeated the process in each rectangle and alternated the colors between on of the Brights Ink Pads to create a nice pretty Rainbow of color all the way around my card front.  


After all the ink blending was complete I removed all the low tack tape (which by the way I use Post it Tape) I was left with this fun colorful pattern.  I love the play of the geometric shapes with the floral image.  I can not remember what stamp set the sentiment came from but I stamped it in Versamark and covered it in White Stampin' Emboss powder and trimmed it down to a very thin banner to add t the front of the card.  When I made this card the Adhesive Backed Sequins where still a current item but they have been retired and replaced by the even better Artistry Blooms Sequins (which have no hole in the middle of them).  
After adding the sentiment strip and the sequins I added the card front to a Basic Black Mat cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 and attached this entire piece to my Thick Whisper White card base that was cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you will give this masking ink blending and emboss resist style of card I try.  I know that you will love doing it.  You will find a full list of the available products in the shopping list below.
