Double inked emboss resist technique How-To:

  1. Ink up your cardstock with light and bright-colored inks. This will be the color that shows through your stamping.
  2. Stamp images with clear embossing ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
  3. Sponge dark ink on top and let it sit for a minute so it absorbs into the paper.
  4. Wipe off the excess with a tissue to reveal the embossed design.

I hope you try this with a variety of stamp images as the possibilities are endless with this technique! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. I just saw a couple of your videos including the embossed card with the winter scene in the middle. I have a question. I am just starting into making cards, etc. and along with some other bits and pieces that I have picked up at thrifts stores, etc. I have gotten embossing cards. I don’t have any machine to use to run them through though and I think if I bring one more machine of any sort into my sewing/craft room it will collapse into the first floor! Besides which I can’t afford one. As you are a frugal crafter 🙂 do you have a way to use these cards without a die machine? I was thinking maybe a rolling pin? Hammer? I’m just not sure, but I do want to use the items I have. I know I am coming late to the party so to speak as in the last 2 years I have picked up so many scrapbooking and card making supplies at my thrift stores as well as never used stamps, etc. I have never been fashionable, so this is par for the course for me. Thanks for any ideas!


    • For embossing folders you can sprits cardstock with paper and let it sit a few minutes and then place it in the folder and roll over it with a rolling pin for a light texture. This is not eough pressure for dies tho. You can also use a ball-end embossing tool and emboss with stencils and texture plates which are a better investment for embossing if you do not with to buy a machine.
