Make Your Own Background & Waxpaper Resist

I'm a swap "addict!" I've also decided to become a challenge addict! I just finished this card for blusky's Embossing Folder/Waxpaper Resist swap and then checked out Penny's Challenge #17 and it was to create a project and use no designer/patterned paper! This swap card fits very nicely! The background for my card was created using a SU embossing folder and wax paper to create the resist on glossy cardstock and then I brayered over the waxed impression (after I ironed it onto the glossy CS!). The technique can be found in the resource section at Splitcoaststampers.

Case of Michelle Z

I attended a Michelle Zindorf brayer class in Nashville, Indiana, recently and can say it was awesome! This is a "case" of the warm up card we did! My card is A2 sized while the class cards were close to being A7 sized. For this card, I changed the size as mentioned, and did change the ribbon and added a photo corner, and used SU inks rather than Adirondack inks. I created this card for Forest Ranger's Winter Wonderland card swap.

Life is better in flip flops

I created this card to participate in a challenge blog! BUT, I don't remember which blog! So, as soon as I discover it again, I'll post the link. :)
Here it is! Penny's Challenge This is my first time to play. I love the sketch and as soon as I saw it I knew that the flip flops were my choice. :)
