Waxy Valentine

Tonight my monthly techniques class meets and one of the techniques I'll be showing them is Waxed Paper Resist.  This easy-peasy technique is a fun way to create interesting backgrounds on your projects.  Here is one of the cards we'll be making tonight:

Masculine Valentine's card featuring the Clockworks stamp set with sentiment from Happy Hour.
Ok...the colour in this photo is WAY off!  It is supposed to be Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler...doesn't look anything like those gorgoues shades.  Man, do I need a new camera!! 
Anyhow, the background uses the Wax Paper Resist technique and then I stamped several of the images from the Clock Works set in various neutral shades:  Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso.  I also stamped the hand-drawn heart from the new Hearts A-flutter set in Cherry Cobbler.  The sentiment is from the Happy Hour stamp set, but I think works well with the clock images.  I added just a hint of texture to the card base with the new Needlepoint Border it!  Here is  shot of the inside of the card:

More stamped images from the Clock Works set and a sentiment from last year's P.S. I Love You set.  Here's hoping my class participants will like this technique as much as I do!


  1. Love the use of the heart inside the clock face!

  2. Really cool. Love this card and can't wait to make it!
