Glue Stick Resist Technique

GLUE STICK RESIST TECHNIQUE

Another day and another card share!!  Hello, my friends.  Today’s card share features two items: the Glue Stick Resist Technique, and the ODBD Snowflake Sky Die.

I had never heard of or try the Glue Stick Resist Technique until a challenge on Splitcoaststampers involved using it.  It actually is a fun technique.  It is quite similar to the Color Resist Technique, but using a glue stick instead of VersaMark stamped images covered with clear embossing powder.

To create the card, I applied a SU Glue Stick in a chevron pattern over a piece of water color paper. After the glue dried, I sponged three different colors of blue distress ink onto the panel. Then I removed the glue from the panel with a baby wipe.  If you do not have a baby wipe, a wet paper towel will work.  This photo shows the results, and it is just that simple.

I decided to use the piece of water color paper (i.e., above photo) to cut out a snowflake panel with the ODBD Snowflake Sky Dies.  I really like the outcome.  I also used the ODBD Snow Crystals Dies, which coordinate with the Snowflake Sky Dies, to add two white glitter snowflakes. Then I wrapped this panel with blue ribbon and a bow with a SU Frosted Finishes Embellishment in the center, offsetting the bow.

1 JOHN 4:7-11

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.  Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.  This is how God showed his love among us:  He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loves us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.  Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”

SU Polka Dots & Paisley & Paisley Prints

I enjoyed last week’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge so much that I made a second card using the color combination.  This card features two retired stamp sets; SU Polka Dots & Paisley & Paisley Prints.  The card can serve as a thank you or valentine card.  I added a “thanks” sentiment; however, that can be removed and a valentine sentiment added.

I used the Stamping Color Resist Technique to create the front panel on the card. Using VersaMark Ink, I stamped the paisley stamp from the SU Polka Dots & Paisley Stamp Set around the piece of Neenah Solar White card stock.  I also used VersaMark Ink to stamp a heart around the card.  The heart stamp is from Catherine Pooler’s Candy Cane Stamp Collection.

I then added SU Clear Embossing Powder onto this panel and heat set it.  Using the colors of the Color Challenge (i.e., SU Soft Sky, Wisteria Wonder, and Wild Wasabi), I sponged the ink around the white card stock panel and rubbed off the ink on the embossing. I think it is amazing how the clear embossing powder turns white!  This process is the Color Resist Technique.

I then used two paisley heart stamps from the SU Paisley Prints stamp set, inked them with Wisteria Wonder and Wild Wasabi, and stamped them onto white card stock.  I cut out the hearts using the Hero Arts Hearts Infinity Dies.  I embossed the two small hearts with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and adhered the three hearts onto the panel with double-sided foam tape.  I used the ODBD Thanks Die to cut out my “thanks” sentiment and finished the card.

Feedback I received from Splitcoastampers members is located HERE!

 REVELATION 22:12-13 (NIV)

The writer of Revelations, St. John The Divine, shared the Word of God through Jesus Christ:  “Behold, I am coming soon!  My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.  I am the  Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” 

SU Rose Garden Thinlits Inlay Thank You Card

Hello, my friends!  Thanks for stopping by to view my latest project; SU Rose Garden Thinlits Inlay Thank You Card!  As the title indicates, I used the Inlay Technique to create the card.

I made this card for two reasons: 1) to thank my wonderful daughter who always looks out for me, and 2) to respond to a Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge.  The colors for the challenge is SU Soft Sky, Wisteria Wonder, and Wild Wasabi.

Creating the card, I first used the SU Rose Garden Thinlits Dies to cut out a White, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, and Wisteria Wonder Rose.

I took the negative of the Soft Sky cut out and adhere it to my card base.  Then I attached the White Rose cut out within the Soft Sky cut out.

Using the Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, and Wisteria Wonder cut out pieces, I inlaid them into the White Rose cut out.

I stamped my Thank You sentiment onto a cut out using Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Many Thanks Stamp Set and ODBD Layered Lacey Ovals Dies.  To embellish the card, I added Clear Wink of Stella onto the rose and attached Wild Wasabi and Wisteria Wonder enamel dots (SU retired product) on two corners.  I then added three butterflies I cut out with a retired Sizzix Butterfly Wings Embosslit.

Hopefully you are inspired by my card, and leave a comment!

 JAMES 1:19-21

James writes to the twelve Jewish tribes that are scattered among the nations:  “My dear brothers, take note of this:  Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.  Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.”
