Wax Paper Resist Background

Happy Wednesday!!! 

Today's card is a cute little birthday card that i made using the technique, Wax Paper Resist! I love this technique. I just adds so much meaning behind "homemade DSP":) 

A quick mention before i get into the materials that i used for this card.  I have had some comments and emails lately regarding directions to some of the cards i make! No problem.  However, with projects such as my Post It Note Holder and Step Card (which i did a video for last week), it is easier for me to show how to assemble those projects in video, rather than trying to type it all out to explain it.  Therefore, if you have requested directions for a certain project that you have seen, first and foremost THANK YOU!! and secondly keep coming back i will make sure that i post a video for each request that i get!! I just don't want anyone ever to think that i am ignoring their requests!!

Now, for today's card (which hint, hint, will be a video on one of my Friday Video's) i used my Primrose Petals Ink on Glossy Card Stock after "resisting" my Honeycomb embossing folder on a piece of wax paper!

Here is a little explanation as to what you do to get the Wax paper Resist background.  First, you need to run a piece of wax paper, through your big shot with an embossing folder.  Next, place the "shiny" side of your Glossy Card Stock onto the wax paper that has the embossing on it.  Now, take some sort of "cushion" (i like to use a towel) and place your card stock/wax paper in between two sides of the towel.  With an iron, as hot as it can get, rub over the towel where your card stock/wax paper is.  This is going to transfer the image from the wax paper onto your Glossy Card Stock.  Take your Brayer and then brayer on the ink color of your choice. (whew, see how long that was, lol?)

The stamp set that i used today, and want to showcase, is the "A Cherry On Top" set. It is a hostess set that you can receive if you have a order/party of $150 or more (before s/h & tax).  Here is a closer look:

Well everyone, i hope you enjoyed my post today.  Until next time...
