Technique Tuesday class

November 9, 2011

Have you missed Technique Tuesday?  This class is held on the last Tuesday of every month.  Details can be found here.

In a recent class we learned the Wax Paper Emboss Resist technique.  What a fun one!  The featured project uses the Polar Party stamp set, Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke paper & ink and the new Dazzling Details glitter glue.  WOW it’s much more sparkly in person!  You can see the Wax Paper Emboss resist on the four panels.  We used the Snow Burst embossing folder to create the resist pattern.

Do you know how photos just don’t do a card justice?  This card is one of those cards.  Sometimes when I use shimmer paint, I just can’t get the picture to show just how amazing it is.  This card was featured at November Card Club.  Did you miss it again?  Our next meeting will be in January!  December’s club was cancelled to make way for my Christmas Card Class!  Click here for details.  Hope to see you in a class or club soon!
