EZ with CZ: Easy Emboss Resist Backgrounds

Hi friends! Happy Saturday! Please join me in a warm welcome back to special guest Cathy Zielske! Read on and be sure to check out the video! Enjoy!

Hi crafty friends! It’s Cathy Z. here back with another installment of EZ with CZ. Today I’m sharing an easy emboss resist background using the always forgiving Distress Oxide inks!

I have an ever growing stash of red rubber cling background stamps (like this Deco Squares cling stamp) and they stamp so wonderfully every time! Stamp with some embossing ink and add some clear embossing powder, heat, and start adding your color!

I used to use white embossing powder for this technique but lately I’ve switched over the the Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder. When you’re using a bright white cardstock, it simply preserves that white color below the stamped and embossed image. Here’s my tutorial to show you how simple this can be.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Cathy for being our guest!

  1. Loved the background stamp and realize I have to use mine more. The colors were wonderful with the ink blending. Like you, I find the Oxides much easier to blend. Thanks for all you do!

  2. Thanks for another wonderful card and video, Cathy! I need to get my hands on more background stamps and give this a try. :)
