Wax Paper Resist = Fabulous Snow!

I am a technique junkie. When I first encountered this technique, I knew I had to try it. Then, I kept putting it off each month. When the Holiday Mini Catalog featured a new embossing folder, I knew I had to use it with this technique! Here is my card and technique card we made for August's class:

Stamps: Snow Much Fun
Paper: Marina Mist, Glossy White, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue
Ink:  Basic Black, Marina Mist
Accessories: Many Marvelous Markers, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Marina Mist Polka Dot Scalloped Ribbon, Regals Brads, Brayer, Iron, Wax Paper

Take a piece of wax paper and run it through your Big Shot in an embossing folder. Take 2 pieces of glossy cardstock and make a sandwich with the embossed wax paper and the glossy sides of the paper in the middle. Take a piece of copy paper and lay it over the top of your sandwich. Using an iron, iron over the sandwich. Take out the glossy papers and brayer over them with whatever color you want.

We learned a couple of things when we did this in class. First of all, the side of the wax paper does matter. Make sure it's in the embossing folder so that the up parts are the parts you want white. It will make sense when you try it. Also, the more brayered ink, the better.

Happy Stamping!



  1. Very cool technique! I think I have to try this! Super cute card, too!

  2. I've never done this technique. I'll have to try it!

  3. Fabulous technique. I've never tried it before either. Probably because my iron is up in my bedroom and my stamp room is down in the basement. Too far to walk. But I love what you did with it here.


Thanks for commenting! I love feedback!
