Basic Embossing with Emboss Resist Technique

Friday, June 11, 2010

Last week thursday I met with a potential new recruit.? She had been emailing me and asking me about Stampin’ Up! and the products we offer.? She said she was interested in signing on but had never seen or used the products before.? Wow, that was great wanting to sign on before ever even seeing the products.? I told her I would love to meet with her and show her the products and talk about becoming a Demonstrator.? I also told her it was smart to sign on right away, I wish I had 13 years ago because I would have saved myself lots of money and would have made that many more new friends thru stamping.? We agreed to meet at a local coffee shop.? Before I left for our meeting I received an email from her asking if I could answer a few questions she had regarding the products.? I said, No problem and I brought along the list of items she was asking about.

Here are?3 things that were on her list of questions:
What?s the difference between the Classic & Craft Ink Pads?
How does the Embossing work?
What does Versamark do?

Wow, I totally forgot what it is like to be a new stamper; all these things were just old hat to me.? This got me thinking; I know there are new stampers everyday looking for answers to their questions.? With this in mind I am weekly going to answer stamping questions as well as post videos on the different basic stamping techniques.?? So today’s video is about Basic Embossing using the Versamark ink and Craft Inks.

Is that all you can do with Versamark, embossing and craft inks?? No, that is not all; you will have to come back to see what else you can do with these wonderful products.?

Here is a better picture of the card I made in the video using the Versamark Ink and the White embossing powder.? After embossing I then I brayered over the embossed image with the Old Olive ink creating the Embossed Resist technique.? The card layout was for the Mojo Monday Sketch challenge.

So let me hear your questions.? I will answer them to the best of my?ability and if it requires a technique I’ll do a video.

I hope you enjoyed this Back to the Basics Video.

Oh and Yes, she did sign on!? Would you like to sign on too?? Now is a perfect time with the $99.00 starter kit.? You can click on the $99.00 starter kit image in the left hand side bar to see all the details.? If you have any questions or would like more information please don’t hesitate to drop me an email.? If you would like to join me and my girls go?into my Stampin? Up! website: and click on Start Your Own Business, then click on Join Now, when asked for a password type in Red Hot Stamper.? With the fantastic Special on this new Starter Kit NOW is a great time to sign on and begin your new adventure.

Have a Great Day!

    Thanks for the Back to Basics video! I first thought to myself when looking at the title of your post, I probably don’t need to watch it because I do a lot of embossing already. But I decided to watch you anyway and sure enough, I learned something new! I have never seen the brayer technique – super cool!! Can’t wait to see what other Back to Basic videos you post! Thanks!

    Glenda, I did the exact same thing! I decided one day that I wanted to be a SU Demo, even though I had never ever been to a workshop or even touched the product. Heck, I had never even stamped! I had to go hunt for a Demo in my area…emailed her…asked if she could at least show me some of the product before I signed up. That was two years ago. I knew NOTHING about stamping or the technques. She has since quit, but I’m still going strong. :=)
