Lily Pad Cards

Hey there.

I was happy to be a guest over on the new Lily Pad Cards blog today. These folks are so amazingly kind – be sure to check out their site HERE. (And thank you, Lily Pad, for the kind words you wrote about me!)

For my post, I did a set of 5 cards – all using a different type of resist. Here are the projects, but be sure to go HERE for more details and information. You can also see links to supplies below.

This card features traditional resist: Versamark on glossy paper with ink rubbed over…

This next guy is paint resist: Stamp with paint on cardstock and rub ink over. Ugly in the photo but pretty in real life…

This one is kissed resist: Kiss a Versamarked stamp with another inked stamp on glossy paper and rub ink over…

Next we have patterned paper resist: Clear emboss an image on patterned paper and rub ink over…

And finally we have kraft resist: Clear emboss an image on kraft paper and rub over with white pigment ink…

Again, be sure to head over to Lily Pad Cards to see all the details on these cards.

By the way, for traditional resist, you need glossy paper. The best glossy paper by far is from Ranger. You can find it HERE. Just stamp on it with Versamark, heatset it with a heatgun (or let dry for a long time) and then rub pretty much any ink over it for resist. (I like to use Distress Ink, chalk ink or any dye ink.)

See you soon!

  11. Jennifer, you are SUCH an enabler! I LOVE that stamp! I must have that stamp! I really like these cards and the way you changed thm up, they don’t look the same. That means I should definitely get the stamp, right? VERY cost effective, right?
    Thanks for sharing your awesome techniques!

    These are beautiful cards. I do what you’d call Traditional Resist on regular cardstock. I thought that’s what you taught in your “Thinking Ink” series on Two Peas a few years ago. Do you still do this method or have you switched to Glossy Paper?

  14. Jodi A

    Love the cards! All different but the same! Love the color coordination of ink, paper, and buttons! Thanks for sharing!

  15. These were the inspiration for my card today! Thanks so much. Love looking at your work!!

  16. simply beautiful!

  17. Love these! I must be doing something wrong because I tried this technique on glossy paper too. I used Versamark, heat set it and then smeared Distress Ink over top. When I buffed, very little of the ink stayed and it was hard to see the design that the Versamark had stamped. Am I supposed to use clear embossing powder as well?

  18. Melissa B

    Wow – what great examples for resist techniques. I really need to get up the moxie to experiment more with inks and these card will serve as great inspiration!
