Emboss Resist Tags - Frosted Designs Crop

Howdy fellow bloggers! Are you having a great NSD so far? 
Welcome to the second annual crop with Frosted Designs.
Hopefully, I am not your first stop on the crop today and you have 
been enjoying the goodness all day long. Remember, the crop is on the Frosted Designs 
BLOG and our Facebook Page, and it is going on all day today and tomorrow!
In order to participate in the prize drawing, you must post your project in the comments section of my post on the Frosted Design Blog and then leave a comment here on my blog.
You have until Midnight, Monday the 7th to get your project done.

My challenge for the blog is to make a project with resist embossing.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can see a tutorial on it on my blog
HERE and I have another layout with the technique HERE 
For today I have some fun tags. I am thinking they will be perfect to use as gift tags!
For all three tags I have used the larger Ranger manilla tags and stamped them with the same stamp using VersaMark ink. I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I also used phrase stamps from Dyan Reaveley on each of them.

  I used a variety of spray inks and Inka Gold to add the color and show off the embossing. 
For this tag I used a Prima mistable, some seam binding, beaded ribbon, flowers, beads, and pearls.

 For this one, I also used the wings stamp from Dyan Reaveley, my star punch from Fiskars, some pearls and bling, chipboard butterfly - colored with Inka Gold, and Impression Obsession stamp.
   This one has some ribbon, some old sheet music punched with my Fiskars scalloped heart punch, twine, button from Basic Grey, Pearls, Mica flakes, and stamp from Just Right stamps.

Here is a close up of the embossing. You can see how the clear embossing powder resists the color that I added, giving it a very nice look. This is a very easy technique to do - you will really like it!

Here is the RAK I am offering for for participating in my challenge

Be sure to keep an eye on the BLOG and the Facebook page thruout the weekend.
There will be challenges, games and RAKs. Lots going on!!!

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to leave me a comment and follow my blog.

  1. Your tags are beautiful! Well done!

  2. Your lovely tags inspired me to get out my new Dylusions sprays and TH texture stamps. I made a tag and put it on a stamped card. After seeing your Dyan R stamps I can see my wish list growing! Thanks for the challenge! Sue :)

  4. Great challenge, I love this technique! Gorgeous tags! Thanks for the chance to win!

  5. Hiya, very rarely do I get right off my bum and try a new technique but this one just looked breathtaking. You can make it childish and cute or mature and elegant. How often can you go to different ways for such a simple project. Simple, ha! I am having difficulty but I will keep going with it, its to amazing of an outcome not to perfect! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity I enjoyed making my project and will make more attempts!
