Butterflies & Wax Paper Resist

Today I wanted to share with you a little something I've been working on.  Since school is getting ready to start I'm looking forward to stamping again with kids after school.  I'd really like to start teaching some techniques and since I still need to be schooled in them Splitcoaststampers is always my first stop.
I followed the directions for Wax Paper Resist and was amazed wax paper that I store in my kitchen could make such a wonderful image.  I say the word "store" because I don't cook and am so glad it has another purpose.  lol   Below is my first card with the wax paper, hope you like it. :) 

Supplies used - Wax paper, Stampin Up butterfly & scallop punch, and white pearl buttons.

For the butterflies I used Stampin Up butterfly prints and embossed them with clear powder on colored velum paper.

Faux Silk Miss You Card

This simple but elegant card was so much fun to make.  And I got to use tissue paper in a whole new way. :)
Always learning something new from the wonderful creative people on Splitcoaststampers.  This technique is called Faux Silk.  White tissue paper, stamp it, crinkle it, then spray a glue adhesive, and trim. For dimension I used the Stampin Up bird punch, 3D miss you sticker and a Stampin Up button.  Wanna give it a try?  Here's the link
