STV Emerging Image

Dear Ones~
Well, things have settled down here at the 'ole homestead after coming back early from our camping trip to Michigan's Upper Peninsula.  The weather chased us out before we could experience the beautiful color that Michigan's autumn season brings. The trees haven't turned yet, but the temperatures sure did. So now I have some time to play in the Release Party Challenge over at STV. The challenge is to use heat embossing and sponging to bring out an image. You can watch Gina's technique HERE.

This is what I came up with:
This was a fast and easy card. Thanks, Gina, for reminding me of this emboss resist technique. Here I used the GKD Bold and Blooming stamp set. It reminds me of Zentangle, which I LOVE to do. I used Innocent Pink and Dusty Rose, sponging it on after heat embossing Ivory Card Stock with clear embossing powder.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Ivory Card Stock
SU Flirty Flamingo Card Stock
GKD Bold and Blooming Stamp Set
GKD Cottage Garden Stamp Set for Greeting
GKD Dusty Rose and Innocent Pink Ink
Fiskars Lace Corner Punch
SU Balloon Pop Up Thinlits for Bow
Stash Clear Embossing Powder
Ranger Platinum Embossing Powder for Greeting
Stash Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by. My hubby is out picking apples from our 5 trees. I see some applesauce in our future. Oh, and I so appreciate your comments, they make me smile.



  1. Oh Judy, this is so, so pretty and "girley". I just have to pin this one.

  2. WOW, stunning card, I LOVE it!! The last time we went 'north' in your area, we saw the colors just starting to emerge, but not much here yet! sorry you had to 'bail' from your campsite, did you get those high winds that closed the mighty Mack down? Sounds like you had a fabulous time though, we HAVE to meet up next summer, sounds like a plan to me!

  3. I absolutely love it. So very gorgeous and one of my favorite stamp designs used on it too. And the pink is so perfect!

  4. Just GORGEOUS Judy! Sorry your trip was shortened but happy to be inspired again by your designs! I haven't done this technique in ages ... thanks for the reminder! Happy Monday!

  5. This is a great stamp to used with this technique. Usually it is done in bold colors, but this pink is fantastic. You are a great crafty artist. This is a technique that really hows off an image.

  6. Sorry about your trip being short, but I bet you will go up again even if for only a few days. Here, after the 1st frost and if the weather warms up again, we call that an Indian Summer, perhaps you experience them too? This card is gorgeous, your colors are perfect and the images you used look AHmazing! I agree with Barb (as usual) you ARE such a wildly talent ARTIST!

  7. This is so beautiful, Judy. Emboss resist is a great way to show off that stamp.
