Wax Paper Resist

Hello there, friends!  Thanks for stopping by.

Today, I am sharing two of the cards from my last Technique Night Class.  Technique Night is a class I offer every month.  We learn two new techniques, each with it's own instruction sheet, and we also make 4 cards.  (2 from each technique.)

One of the techniques we learned in February was Wax Paper Resist.  I had not done this technique before.  It was  lot of fun.  (Just be sure your iron isn't too hot, and that your ink pad is freshly inked!)

This is one of our wax paper resist cards.  I just love this.  I chose the color combination from the color coach.  I am surprised by that fabulous little tool each time I use it.  On the cards from the coach, I am often unsure of how it will all look together.  But then, once the card is finished, I am pleasantly surprised.  I was happy to use my new Ornate Tag Topper punch for the first time.  I love how using it on both ends makes this adorable shape, ready for mounting to any card!

This was our second card.  I love it for many reasons.  It uses some of my favorite products from the Occasions Catalog.  I just love the Happy Hearts embossing folder.  I love both sides of it, and always struggle on which side to pick.  LOL.  There is *no* wrong side to an embossing folder!  This card also features our new chalkboard paper, and chalk ink.  I really like how the chalkboard paper feels.  It is quite a bit heavier than our regular card stock, and on one side has a smooth finish that feels just like a chalkboard.  The inks are great too.  We have them in three colors right now; Aquamarine, Rose Coral, and Yellow Citrus.  For this card, I used the Rose Coral.  I love that these chalk inks have just enough color in them so you can tell it is there, but the ink is still opaque enough to really look like chalk.

You can see the opaque-ness of the chalk ink here in this photo.  It is just so fun to work with!

Well, that is all I have to share for today.  I hope you are having a great week so far!

Thanks for stopping by!

Here's what I used on the Awesomeness card:  (Plus Blushing Bride Ink used for the technique.)
