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.

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
