Stampin Up Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop JANUARY 2016, Love Is All You Need, Freezer Paper Resist Technique, Rose Wonder Photopolymer Bundle

Good Afternoon!

I am part of the most wonderful blog hop, with super talented demonstrators from all over the world! Please be sure to check out all their work below!

The theme this month is "Love is all you need" and I have a really sweet friend on my mind today.  My dear friend Carol was diagnosed with breast cancer last week, and she's going in for surgery today.  I plan on sending her both these cards.  She is a blessing to so many and to me!
I have been a woman on a mission playing with the freezer paper technique I have to share with you today.

The steps are pretty basic:
  1. Cut some freezer paper (found at the grocery store) out with a big shot die.
  2. Iron it on your paper.
  3. Watercolor on top. (glitter optional too)
  4. Use a heat gun and a pair of paper snips to lift the watercolor paper.
  5. Fill in any imperfections with a white gel pen
  6. Finish your card.
Here is a video I did for you today to show you the steps.



As far as the big shot tips, after showing "how easy" my dies were to cut, i had some trouble and left it in there so you could see how I fixed it.  If you have trouble sometimes with intricate cuts, below are two graphics that can help you with your sandwich when cutting intricate dies.  To see a video all about cutting intricate cuts, check out this video.

Here is another example I made using the same technique and the Bloomin Love Bundle also by Stampin' Up! and I used the above guide for the intricate cut, making it MUCH easier to get a clean cut than before. Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me share with you today.



Please be sure to check out all of the other talented demonstrators on today's hop!

Love,
