About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Embossing Folder - Wax Resist

Afternoon! Am back with another card to share. This one is the Darice Stars Border Embossing Folder that Fiona will have on the show on Monday on Create and Craft.
For this card, I used Sheena's Stamping Card, as I wanted to use Aquatints. I embossed the card down one edge the A4 card, then scored it to make an A5 card with the border at the bottom. I then coloured in some of the stars with #59 from the Pretty Pastels Aquatint collection.
I then took some wax paper (the kind you used with your dies), and embossed several strips, before sandwiching them between two more pieces of Sheena Stamping Card. I then ironed over the card. It is difficult to see the pattern transferred to the card - but it is there - on both pieces.
I then painted a wash over the cards with #59 from the Pretty Pastels Aquatints, and #56 from the Bright and Beautiful. Then, using my Die'sire Essentials Stars, I cut out several pieces. I did the same with another white piece, with coloured stars.
I then mounted them up with some pearls, and arranged them around the sentiment, which is Sheena's Only Words - From the Heart!!

Make sure to tune in on Monday to see Fiona with this and more Darice Folder.
Enjoy your evening!!
