Default TLC641 ~ Everything Old is New Again: Wax Paper Emboss Resist {06/05/2017}

Well, it's a new month already - this year is flying by! Since it's the first Monday of the month, it's time for Everything Old is New Again.


This month, I thought we would revisit the Wax Paper Emboss Resist technique. So I hope you all have an iron in your closet, even if you don't use it very often .


We have a great tutorial in the Resources section - you can view it HERE.
If you prefer not to emboss it, the simpler alternative is simply to scrunch up your waxed paper, open it, and then iron it between two pieces of cardstock as above. We even have a tutorial for that too - you'll find it HERE.
And if you really truly don't have an iron, you can still play along by using Anne's No-Iron Resist technique. But I encourage you to try one of the first two options, and especially the embossing one - we all have loads of folders in our stash and it's a great way of getting extra mileage from them.

If you need to grab some inspiration before you start, you can check out the Wax Paper Resist gallery which covers both techniques (and don't forget to add your own creations to it when you are uploading!).

Technique Basics: take a piece of waxed paper the size of your chosen embossing folder, and emboss it.
Take a piece of (glossy) card twice the size of your embossing folder, score, and fold in half.
Sandwich the embossed wax paper inside the folded card.
Use copy paper to protect your iron from any accidental wax transfer, and iron with a medium to high setting till the wax has transferred to the card.
Sponge colour onto the two pieces of cardstock.
Complete your card.


Both the tutorials I have linked to from the Resources section call for glossy cardstock, and that is what I used the first (and only other time) I tried the wax paper emboss technique. However, I have a finite supply of glossy card and it's more expensive to replenish, so I thought I'd experiment and tried using regular cardstock. To my delight, it turned out very well, so both my samples are made with regular rather than glossy. You may prefer to play safe and stick with glossy - feel free to experiment.

Here's a link to our TLC641 Wax Paper Emboss Resist gallery


Here are my two cards - since this is a two-for-the-price-of-one technique - always a bonus. Interestingly, although I used a feather embossing folder, I decided that one made a good leafy background, and used the other for an underwater scene. Not a bird in sight!


TLC641 Just Beakause

TLC641 Fear Not


Remember to use the keyword TLC641 when you are uploading. It's helpful (to the hostesses for sure!) if you come back and leave a link on this thread .


If you're not sure how to link your card on the thread here, here's how:


1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Sounds like fun...bummer that I don't have an iron! Ours quit working and, since we hardly ever use it, it hasn't been replaced yet. If I ever get back to sewing, I'll need to get one!

Catherine, I did include a no-iron option if you want to try it; it's the 3rd one I linked to. It gives a look quite similar to the version where you don't emboss the wax paper, just crumple it and then smooth it.Because I linked to the TLC where Anne describes her technique, you could view the challenge gallery to check it out.
Yes, I'd say it would be impossible to sew without an iron!

No, sorry, you need the wax to create the resist. I know I had to sit this one out the first time I encountered a challenge with it, wax paper was almost impossible to find here. Luckily somebody sent me a few sheets which kept me going until it became widely available here.

Thanks for bringing this back Sabrina! I have so many embossing folders and many I never use so this got me to find one that needed some extra love.

New to me too, but really enjoyed it. A fun new way to use our embossing folders.

Great challenge, Sabrina; I have never tried this technique before. Had to wait for DH to bring home some wax paper though, before I could try it : )

Thanks Sabrina! I now have 5 more Embossed wax paper resist backgrounds to play with. I did three different folders and then inked each one in a different color! It was fun to see what they would look like.

I have done this technique close to a year ago, so it was fun to use again. I made two cards with this technique and fish. My new monthly club set showed up from The Stamps of Life and it is a fish set, so it was fun to use my backgrounds with the new stamp set. Here are my cards:

So much fun! Sabrina, I knew there was a no ironing option but I wanted to do the iron option. My youngest DD suggested using the heated bottom of a pan so I heated up my frying pan and used it and it worked! She is my MacGyver!
