Nature’s Peace for The Paper Players

It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players.  Jaydee is hosting a fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for us.  I inked up the large Nature’s Peace stamp and created a very quick and easy emboss resist card.  Enjoy!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ wide by 5-1/2″ long.

  • Don’t resist the urge to resist!  The emboss resist technique packs a punch, but is so easy to do:  Simply stamp and heat emboss your image.  Then apply ink directly over and around the embossed image using a stamping sponge.  Finally, wipe away any excess ink with a tissue.  On today’s card I used Crumb Cake ink, along with Always Artichoke, Pink Pirouette, Crushed Curry and Soft Sky for a muted look.
  • All that glitters isn’t gold! On this card, it’s Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter!
    • Aged, before beauty! The edges of this card were roughed up using the Distress Tool.  Soft Suede ink was then applied with a Sponge Dauber.  A few speckles were added, courtesy of Crumb Cake ink and the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  As a final touch, Pearls were added.

    I had fun with today’s challenge. As you look at the tic-tac-toe grid and my card, can you see which elements I included? It’s probably easier to find the ones I didn’t. What did you think of this quick and easy card? Won’t you let me know in today’s comment? Your comments are important to me.  And remember, if you ever have a question about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away.  Until next time…

    Vicki’s watercoloring is amazing!!! The snowy hills she created are stunning, and create a feeling of depth.
    Ronna Butt
    Ronna’s card is actually an invitation, inviting everyone to attend her 10th annual Christmas Open House.  The torn paper edge adds so much texture!
    Beth McCollough
    Beth CASED this adorable card from Stampin’ Succeess magazine…one of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. I love the simplicity and the quaint, country feel!
