Emboss Resist is a magical stamping technique that is quick & easy, but sure to impress.  It's a technique that I learned in my early days of stamping, but it still never fails to wow me. Today's video tutorial shows you how to do the Emboss Resist technique in just a few simple steps.


The featured cards are this month's Stamping Country Thank You cards. Every order here at Stamping Country receives a card as my way of saying, "Thanks so much".

What's that Color?

  Button Buddies

What's that Color?  That's the question that I am often asked when Rich Razzleberry is included on a card, Scrapbook page or paper craft.  Rich Razzleberry is a color that excites your senses.  Pair it with Pear Pizzazz and Ooh, La La.

Punches save so much time and add so much dimension to my paper craft projects.  The 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch lines up perfectly to punch out the pretty flower from the Button Buddies stamp set. Add a designer Button and watch it all come together.  The little leaves is the branch from the Bird Builder Punch.

Don't you just love the ruffled or pleated paper ribbon?  Let me show you how to make your own pleated paper ribbon in this video tutorial.
