By the Tide (2013 Spring Mini sneak peek!)

Posted by on December 16, 2012 in Heat Embossing | 4 comments

I had my December meeting with my downline yesterday (pictures to follow) and this was my swap:

This is another new set from the upcoming Spring Mini catalog using a technique called “Emboss Resist”.  Here’s the directions:

  • Stamp the coral image in Versamark on Very Vanilla cardstock and emboss with White Embossing powder (remember to use the Embossing Buddy first!)
  • Sponge River Rock ink across the bottom of the cardstock
  • Sponge Baja Breeze ink across the rest of the cardstock
  • Stamp the fish in River Rock
  • Stamp the seahorse in Midnight Muse
  • Stamp the anchor seal in Soft Suede
  • Stamp the writing image in Baja Breeze
  • Tear the right side of the paper
  • Add a strip of Midnight Muse cardstock under the torn ege
  • Paper Pierce the Midnight Muse cardstock strip
  • Add Early Espresso Twine
  • Layer to the front of folded Soft Suede cardstock

Stamps: By the Tide

Ink: River Rock, Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Midnight Muse, Versamark
Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Midnight Buse
Accessories: sponges, White Embossing Powder, Early Espresso Twine
I think I may add a greeting tied to the twine, still not sure.
Happy Stamping!
Brenda 🙂


  1. I think a greeting tied to re twine would be perfect!

  2. That was the first set I got on the pre-order 🙂 I’m so glad to have a card to copy now, thank you Brenda!

  3. Fabulous card, Brenda. Love the colours you have used and the combination of embossing and sponging.

    • Thanks Judy! It is a fun card to make – will be a project at next month’s stamp camp. Hopefully my customers like it too 🙂
