Techniques, Tutorials, and Tips - Wax Paper Resist Technique!

Happy Monday, everyone! I pray that all of you Mothers and Grandmothers out there had a beautiful and blessed weekend! This time around on "Techniques, Tutorials, and Tips", we have a very fun and easy technique to share with you....Wax Paper Resist! You will be amazed how easy it is to do and it's not messy at all....yay!!!

The basic supplies you will need are: 
Wax Paper (from your kitchen); 
Glossy Cardstock; 
Paper Towel; 
Clothes Iron (or craft iron if you have one); 
Ink pads....any type of dye ink or distress ink will work; 
Sponges or a brayer....either will work excellently!

The video tutorial below shows step by step how to do the Wax Paper Resist Technique....enjoy!

As mentioned in the video, there are many ways to do this technique.  Place your wax paper in your embossing folders or use with embossing plates/texture plate, just as you would with cardstock.  Once you have the pattern in the wax paper, iron onto the glossy paper as shown in the video.  Use your imagination....there are endless possibilities!! Have fun!!

The card below is the sample made during the video.  Here are the supplies used:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Happy Retirement';
Cardstock: Stampin Up Island Indigo, Whisper White, and Glossy White Cardstock:
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Stampin Up Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Ruby Red, Garden Green, Close to Cocoa, and Crumb Cake;
Accessories: Wax Paper, Iron, Paper Towel, Spellbinders Square Nestabilities, Craft knife, Paper Piercer and Template, Dew Drops, foam tape, sponge daubers, scratch paper, May Arts Twill Ribbon;
Size: 5-1/2 x 5-1/2.

My second card sample was created using the Our Daily Bread designs "Vintage Background" embossing plate.  I placed the wax paper over the embossing plate, covered the wax paper with a piece of scratch paper, then ran through my Cuttlebug.  The pattern transferred really well from the wax it!!!

Other supplies used for this card:
Cardstock: Stampin Up Peach Parfait, Whisper White, and Glossy White;
Designer Paper: Prima 'Sun Kiss';
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Stampin Up Peach Parfait, Crumb Cake, and Mellow Moss;

Why not use another sheet of glossy cardstock on top to get two designs for the effort of sdoing just one?
