Laura Liddell: Create Kraft Resist Card

Currently Kraft Resist cardstock seems to be quite the thing. Here I will show you one way to create your own.

I am using both Kraft card and Cream card to show the technique. A background stamp. I have chosen to use this Tim Holtz script stamp. Also I use Archival ink.

This is after I have stamped the image. You can see the difference between a brand new stamp pad and an older one. The Archival Coffee is much wetter than the black and the image is not quite as fine.

I then chose some more textural background stamps. I really like these ones from The Artistic Stamper. Versamark ink pad and clear embossing powder.

Stamp these background stamps over the other images and cover with clear embossing powder.

Heat set with heat gun

Choose some distress inks to further colour the card. I just had to play with the new limited edition fall colours.

Just apply the colours with sponges to really show up the resist.

The card is then ready for you to use in your projects.


  1. Fab look with the distress colours over the top. Thanks for the tutorial!

    Happy Pink Saturday greetings from Holland,

  11. This is amazing, Laura - I cannot wait to do this technique!

  12. What a fun new way to try out Tim's new colors for fall! I especially like your rainbow-stripish look, the way you've blended artfully at the edges, along with your cute layout overtopping all.
    Gotta try this one out soon!

  13. oh, lovely! Thanks for the lesson.

  14. I love the resist technique it always gives a bit of wow factor to what could often end up a boring flat background. I love how you have used these images together to create a seamless design. It could easily pass for a background stamp taht was bought ready made.

  15. What a fab technique and tutorial! Thank you so much, Laura,
