Immediately, I thought, "No, but I'm ready for some cards!"
Well, you can sure tell where my brain is . . . stamping, stamping, stamping, and more stamping!!!
Here's a great card to share with you using the Love & Sympathy stamp set.
This card was given to me by Lynn Fones, and she's a fellow demonstrator that I met. She used a technique on this card called the Wax Paper Resist Technique.
- To do the Wax Paper Technique you:Take a piece of wax paper that is slightly larger than your glossy card stock. Run it through the Big Shot using an Embossing Folder.
- Using two pieces of Glossy Card Stock, sandwich the wax paper between the two pieces of Glossy Card Stock. Iron over the paper "sandwich" using a high heat with your iron, but no steam. This will actually give you two pieces of card stock to make cards. One will be a positive image, and the other will be a negative image of your embossing folder.
- Take your pieces apart and discard the wax paper. Apply ink to your glossy card stock using a sponge, daubers, or a brayer -- you can even use a blending tool if you want . . . the choice is yours and depends on the look you want.
It's as easy as 1-2-3!
