Customized paper using Emboss Resist

Hi, Amber here today to show you how to use the emboss resist stamping technique to create a background for a scrapbook layout. Remember that stamps aren't just for cards! Try them on a layout sometime to customize your own paper.

My background paper was just plain white cardstock. I started by randomly stamping two snowflakes from the Falling Snow stamp set in clear Versamark ink all over the cardstock. I then heat embossed it with clear powder.

Once it looked like I had enough snowflakes I then sprayed Glimmer Mist in the color Frost all over the paper. You could also cover it using an inkpad but I wanted the look of the spray.

Use a paper towel to remove the excess spray. The ink will wipe right off of the shiny embossed areas revealing the white paper underneath. Here's the finished background (I purposely didn't stamp where I knew the photos would be):
 I used my embossing gun to help the paper dry faster. The mist will get the paper very wet and it may start to curl up when you are drying it. If so then just dry from underneath the paper to help flatten it out again.

Here's the layout one more time. I just love the way those snowflakes set the tone for the whole page!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to try stamps on your next scrapbook layout!
