This is a card I made using the Winter Post stamp set and Heard from the Heart sentiment stamp set. I used the crayon resist technique to add highlighting to the snowflakes and the sentiment. This is one of the prettiest snow flake stamps I've seen. I also wanted to feature the new colors that came in my first SU demonstrator kit which are the Pacific Point, Rich Razzelberry, and Daffodil Delight. I also used the Scallop Trim border punch. Added a little ribbon and cold cording and stick on rhinestones.
For the crayon resist, stamp your image on glossy cardstock with Jet Black StazOn ink. Let it set for a few minutes. Then take your white crayon (traditional Crayola crayon is what I used) and color around your image/sentiment. Use a sponge to apply the dye ink colors directly from the ink pad over the images and sentiment. Then take a paper towel and rub. The crayon wax resists the ink and leaves a nice white highlight to your image. This is one of my favorite techniques because it is so simple and uses so few items.

I'm embarking on a new career. I'm following my passion and starting a career as a demonstrator for Stampin Up. I have been a customer for years and I like the company so much, I decided to demonstrate for them. It is a good way to make some money doing what I love to do in my spare time. I love to play with paper, stamps, ink, and all the other embellishments and tools to create cards and other papercraft items so this is a perfect match for me. Things have changed with my other vocation of medical transcription, and I thought I would take it as a sign to finally begin my career in the crafting world. Stampin Up is a great company and has great products so it will be easy for me to demonstrate and sell. This blog will be for posting my SU only projects. I have another blog Stamping Therapy where I will post everything I make using other products that I love. I would love your feedback and any advice you have.
