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.”
