Emboss resist is one of my favorite techniques. A simple white embossed background on white cardstock is then layered with one, two or more colors, like I’ve done on today’s Pocketful of Sunshine card. I didn’t have the heart to cover up the spectrum of color so I used a strip of vellum cardstock to house the greeting and the sunglasses. I cut the vellum cardstock 2 1/4″ x 8″, making sure I had enough to overlap to the back layer.
This stamp set and their coordinating Pocket Framelits are currently available as a Bundle (saving you 10%) but only through May 31st. The stamp set and the Pocket Framelits will be in the new catalog but not as a Bundle.
Shimmer is nearly impossible to pick up in a photograph but if you look closely at the picture below you’ll see a few specks of the Clear Wink of Stella that I brushed on the lenses. I stamped the greeting using Basic Black Archival ink then sped up the drying process using the Heat Tool.
The Glitter Enamel Dots used on the vellum to highlight the background are on the retiring products list. The dots come in an ombre of tones in four different colors that are so versatile. I’m certainly going to miss this product! Another retiring product – the Basic Black Archival ink pad!

You might recall another card I created with a similar emboss resist technique and color scheme. If you missed it, you can view it HERE. That card provides more details about how the color was layered.
This look is easily achieved using any background stamp and spectrum of colors . Or, if you’re partial to one color, consider using shades of the same – blues, green, reds, to name a few. The possibilities are endless!
