This week on "Stamp TV" Gina K had a tutorial for a wax paper resist (that's what I call it)...and boy did I have fun with this!! I actually couldn't quit...I have 3 to show today and 3 more for later.
You cut a piece of wax paper to fit an embossing folder, run it thru your machine, stamp an image on cardstock, heat up your iron to high....no steam.....lay a piece of cardstock on a hard surface (I used a cookie sheet), lay your wax embossed sheet over the stamped cardstock, place another piece of cardstock on top, and iron for a few seconds, it doesn't take long,......then the fun begins, just use your ink pads and rub over the cardstock...I used 3 different ones for mine...I went a light color, then my main color, and finished each one with TH distress ink "Old Paper", then when you are satisfied, rub a paper towel across to take up all the excess ink...that's it...so simple! The link is above for her video.
How do you like that silly kitty in the spaghetti ladel??? I saw that stamp a few years ago in a card magazine and ordered him from Viva Las Vegas stamps.....so cute!! The inside of the card simply says "smile"...how can you not smile with that silly kitty! The other 2 stamps used are Unity.
That's it for today...am finishing up some primtive sewing projects to get in the mail this week..............
