Layered Resist + GIVEAWAY

Hello! A few weeks ago, I shared a video with several resist techniques. I had such fun bringing back these old techniques, so I thought I would share more! Today is all about layered resist.

Before we get into layered resist, I have a few cards reviewing basic traditional resist. For this technique you need a glossy/coated cardstock. I prefer Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper – the finish is so pretty.

For my first three cards, I stamped flowers from the Altenew Starry Flowers Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) with VersaMark Ink (SSS | EH) on Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper and heat set it completely. (Be sure to watch the video to see how using a guide for stamping gives better results.) I then applied Altenew Ink (SSS | ALT) over the surface and wiped away the extra with a dry cloth. The Versamark Ink “resists” the color on top, leaving a soft, subtle background.

I used the new Altenew Fine Alphabet Die Set (SSS | ALT) to create a stacked “hugs” sentiment with white glitter paper on top… and embossed “sending” from the Altenew Frosted Garden Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). I added Grafix Platinum Vellum leaves cut with the Altenew Garden Silhouette Die Set (SSS | ALT) and pearls.

Here is another example using the same supplies and techniques. The “you amaze me” is from the Altenew New Day Card Kit… and the “from my hands to your heart” on the envelope is from the Altenew Rustic Linen Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

And one more… I really like the resist backgrounds!

Here is one more example of basic resist… just to show how you can control how vibrant the results are. I used the Altenew Rustic Linen Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) for the resist background. Subtle but pretty! I added a fun layered sentiment using the Altenew Botanical You Stamp Set (SSS |ALT).

That layered image is so pretty and easy to create…

Now it’s time for resist with layering! I first did the resist technique for the background with the solid leaf layer of the Altenew Crown Bloom Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). After applying ink and removing the excess, I stamped the detailed layers from the stamp set on top with matching inks. This creates such a unique look!

I added a flower stamped with the Altenew Crown Bloom Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) and a sentiment from the Altenew Starry Flowers Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

This next background also features layered resist. This time I used the Altenew Bride To Be Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

I also added a few playful rings cut with the new Altenew Fine Frames Circles Die (SSS | ALT)…

If you have never tried the resist technique, I recommend it!

  1. I’ve been looking for a linen stamp to use on my cards for the background and I’ve finally found it. I can see many uses for the Rustic Linen stamp in so many colors, Bold or pastel or heat embossed. It’s a must have.

  2. Garden Silhouette stamp set is my favorite but I love all of the products. Your cards are exquisite and you are so talented.

  3. You have outdone yourself again! So so pretty. My favourite item is the garden silhouette stamp set. but truly anything altenew is my favourite.

  4. Love the colors on these cards. My favorite new Altenew is Crown Bloom Stamp Set. I am head over heals over the background. Love all the new ones!!

  5. love the Fabulous Linen stamp and the Fabulous Floral stamp and die set. I want to work with the layers stamps more.
    really liked how you use the MISTI to position your stamps-great tip!

  6. A few months ago I found your YouTube videos searching for ways to use my Distress Ink pads and once I started watching your video’s I was hooked. You have an incredible talent and I just wanted to say thank you for teaching all of us! Since I watched your show I’ve purchased 3 Altenew stamp sets . So far my favorite is the Wild Hibiscus Clear Stamp set various cards I make. I also love that they have steps to show you which ones to use first. I plan on ordering the Bride to be and the Botanical You Stamps too. I have always loved flowers and the assortment Altenew has is in incredible! I may not be as advanced as some that are listed or have as many as they do but Altenew has found a customer for life and with your videos, you make a crafter feel like it’s not impossible 🙂 Have a wonderful blessed day!

    1. Also I meant to say I hope being chosen to win isn’t based on how much Altenew products you have because so far I love what I have because it’s great quality and the creativeness is fantastic. I just found out about this company through your videos so I’m just starting my wonderful Altenew Inventory 🙂

    I love the Starry Flowers and the Garden Silhouette sets but that is only the tip of the iceberg…LOL

  9. My favorite is the delicate circle and retangle die cuts. I love how subtle yet eye catching they are.

  10. What a pretty look the layering resist gives to a card. This is a really pretty release, as always. My favorite is the Starry Flowers Stamp Set. Thank you for showing us another great technique.

  12. Wow, what a release. I think my favorite is the May 2018 Stamp and Die Bundle… :-), I especially love the Fine Frames Dies. Both circle and rectangle.

  17. I love your card with the Crown Bloom set. If I had to pick a favorite from the Altenew release it would be the Crown Blooms or the Garden Silhouette set.

  18. This was like a mini history lesson of the crafting world. I had no idea that versamark on glossy paper was the original resist! You are the keeper of great knowledge, clearly. Thanks for sharing ways to make this work. The layering one in particular is so striking, yet so subtle at the same time. I also really like how you used the circle frames to finish up the last card. You always know how to make the classiest cards.
