Happy Monday!

Wanted to share a couple of new techniques I learned @ my Southern Crafter's class Thursday.
We used all Stampin Up products (except the wax paper!!)
The first one is a resist technique using was paper.  Amazing what we can craft with isn't it!

You can either run a piece of wax paper thru your Big Shot using an embossing folder or just scrunch it up & smooth it back out.  Then you'll put it between a glossy sided paper.   Then you are going to iron it-that's right IRON IT.  To protect your cardstock, we ironed it between a plain piece of paper.  15-20 seconds on each side.

The wax comes off onto the glossy paper.  You then sponge ink -any color. You can think die cut it any shape.  We just used a rectangle piece in the middle of our card front.

Do you see all the texture on it?  Love it!

This blue card is really easy.  Ink your silouette stamp really good.  After you press down-lift & press again a little off set from the first one.  Really makes a nice shadow.  We punch 2 holes on the side of the card stock & ran our ribbon thru.
