Last weekend I had a fun Zoom get together with some of my class attendees. We created a couple of cards together using whatever supplies each one had. One of the cards was a mystery card. It was even a mystery to me!. I provided instructions as we went along. It was quite interesting to see what each of us came up with. I’m sharing with you the card I came up with using the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.
By adding a Smoky Slate card base, it shifted the card from being very bright to a more subtle look which is what I was going for. I stamped the sentiment in Basic Gray to complement the Purple Posy cardstock it was layered on.
The lipsticks were fussy cut out of the DSP and arranged with the flowers, which I coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

Make this card at home
It’s my first time participating in the Colour Combo Blog Hop and I am so excited to be part of it. I love my pinks and for my first challenge I don’t just get 1 but wait … I get 2 pinks to work with.
Welcome to those of you who are visiting me for the first time today and for those of you who are regulars here. I’m so glad you have been able to take some time to stop by and see what I have got to share with you today.
I’ve got a couple of cards today using the Wax Resist technique and the Dressed to Impress bundle. The first card uses Melon Mambo over the Wax Resist Technique. I used a sponge dauber to add Blushing Bride to the perfume bottle which was inspired by one those famous brands!
Wax Resist Technique
- Wax paper
- Whisper White cardstock
- Embossing Folder
- 1 piece A3 paper
- Cut your 2 pieces of Whisper White cardstock and wax paper to the same size. For these cards I cut mine to 9.3cm x 13.6cm
- Place the wax paper in the embossing folder and emboss as normal. You may need to add an extra shim if it doesn’t have enough pressure going through the die cutting machine. Take your wax paper out of the embossing folder.
- Place wax paper in-between the 2 pieces of Whisper White cardstock
- Take an A3 sheet of paper (I used a sheet of grid paper) and fold in half. Place the wax paper/cardstock sandwich within the A3/grid paper.
- Using a very hot iron (no steam), iron over the folded paper, ensuring that you iron over every section of the wax paper. This doesn’t take long. Probably about 20-30 seconds.
- The side of the 2 pieces of cardstock which were facing the wax paper will have the image of the embossing folder. Ensure that you keep those sides facing up as it’s hard to tell which side is embossed. This will give you 2 card fronts.
- Using a sponge dauber, add colour over the embossed card. The wax will ‘resist’ the colour. Using a tissue, wipe over the card to take off any excess ink and it will make the embossed image stand out even more.
This second card has a Blushing Bride Wax Resist base. The shoes were coloured with Stampin’ Write markers and the flowers with a sponge dauber. I love using a sponge dauber to add subtle colour to a project – in this case, I didn’t want the Crushed Curry to be too strong so i just sponged a bit of colour in.
Hope you have enjoyed this technique and I’d love to see you back again for more papercrafting fun. You can find all the products I have used, listed at the bottom of this post.
