Default Wax Paper Technique

To update the traditional Wax Paper Technique, we can add Cuttlebug embossing folders to the mix. You will need glossy paper, wax paper, a Cuttlebug embossing folder (or equivalent), an iron, dye inks, a brayer is optional.

TRADITIONAL Wax Paper Technique: (2nd card)
Crumble up the wax paper, smooth it out, then lay it on the glossy cardstock. Use an iron set on hottest setting (dry, no steam) to iron the wax paper to the glossy cardstock. (If you sandwich this between 2 pieces of typing paper, you will protect your iron and surface from wax.) The wax transferred to the cardstock will act as a resist when you add ink. Use a brayer to add ink to the cardstock, or you can just smear ink on if you don't have a brayer.

UPDATED Wax Paper Technique with Cuttlebug embossing folders: (1st card)
Instead of crumbing the wax paper, emboss the wax paper in a cuttlebug folder. Continue as directed above.
(Put the wax paper in the folder. Run through your machine. Remove wax paper from the folder, then iron the wax paper to the cardstock to transfer the design.)

In my sample I stamped the gecko directly over the inked background using Staz-On black ink. The wax paper resisted the ink in some places, so I used a sharpie marker to fill in color where needed.

Have you played with wax paper before? We'd love to see your art. Feel free to share it here.

Nice 'new' twist to an old fav, Deb!

For an additional thrill, sandwich the embossed (or crinkled) wax paper between 2 pieces of glossy cardstock to get both positive & negative resists to play with. Just make sure that the glossy pieces are facing each other with the wax paper in between, then follow the rest of Deb's wonderfully clear instructions.

You are most welcome, Deb!

Who doesn't want to stretch their stamping $ as far as they can by using both sides of a piece of wax paper?

I have tried this one before but only as a background. With the newer inks I see we can stamp on it. Thanks!

Hobbyaholic, we are so glad you have discovered the joy of stamping and have joined us here. Have fun trying this technique. I hope you will post what you make.

Fab (and anyone else), please feel free to post some of your cards with wax paper backgrounds here. I'm sure others, especially newbies, would like to see samples of the variety of wax paper backgrounds!

As you probably can tell, I enjoy sharing my love of stamping!
