It is a brand new week, and this week I am going to feature one of my favorite new bundles!  It is called SPOTLIGHT ON NATURE.  The circle dies are what first caught my eye with this bundle, but now that I have it, I am loving the stamp images.

If fact, I shocked myself that I didn't use the dies on every card!

Today's card was one of the cards that I used in my Learning with Friends video last week to demonstrate how to do the Waxed Paper Resist Technique.  If you missed the video, you can still watch the replay.

The Waxed Paper Resist Technique has been around for a long time, but it is usually only shown using Glossy cardstock.  I experimented a bit on my video to see if it would work with regular cardstock, and IT DOES!

This card layout is also one of my favorites.  Typically it is in the Portrait Orientation with a circular element, but I decided to mix it up a bit.  It's a great layout to show off designer series paper, and that is why I thought it also worked well to show off the differences in the technique sheets.

The upper rectangle on the card was made using Glossy White cardstock (Yes, I know it is retired, but I stocked up before it retired and still have some in my stash.)  The smaller, lower rectangle was made with regular Basic White cardstock.

One of the fun things about the Waxed Paper Resist Technique is that you make two technique sheets at the same time.  Watch the video to see how.

These two sheets look very different, but both were made the same and at the same time.  In the video I also showed a 3rd technique sheet made from Photo Paper.  Even though all 3 were made with the same technique, the same Coastal Cabana Ink, and the same So Swirly Embossing Folder, they all look quite different.  

The image was die cut with the Thoughtful Expressions Dies.  

If you like this card layout, use this link to download a free tutorial.  It provides all the dimensional information and step-by-step directions -- including a link to the technique video.

As I mentioned above, each time you use the Waxed Paper Resist Technique you make two sheets, so I had plenty of leftovers to decorate both the inside of my card and the flap of my envelope.  Gotta love those leftovers!

For a list of current products that were used please see the list below.
