Hello and thanks for stopping by to check out today’s new papercraft project. I love a fun technique, especially one that allows me to use the crafts supplies I have on hand. The project I have on hand to share with you today has a vintage look that was really easy to achieve. By adding stamped images in clear embossing over DSP before adding a few colors of ink, the patterned paper transforms into a vintage look that’s easy to achieve.

Vintage Roses with Clear Emboss Resist
The inspiration for this project was born from the Stitched Seasons Framelits dies. They have the great double stitched lines but they also carry a vintage feel for me, with the contoured design. Building on this aspect, I chose to create a look based around the vintage or shabby chic look by adding ink over the embossed images.
I started by choosing a stamp that would give me a nice bit of coverage to let the DSP show through after it’s embossed with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The idea of “emboss resist” is that by trapping the paper design under the clear plastic area, the areas not embossed will take ink and transform the paper into a new look. For example, if I clear embossed a clear image on blue paper, then inked over it with black ink, all of the paper would now be black with the exception of the clear embossed area- that would have remained blue. Cake Soiree is a great stamp set for this technique and the Sweet Cake Framelits have a great rose accent.
The color was applied with a Sponge Brayer in shaded of Blushing Bridge, Flirty Flamingo and Crumb Cake. For a visual demonstration of this project, see the video link below.
