Ok Nina put up another challenge for us ladies....
Cuttlebug Embossing with wax paper...
so here are my attempts and ladies
let me tell you this was a challenge ...
I had to borrow wax paper from neighbour
that's right ..bought some from the dollar store ...really no wax to speak of
Bare the went to Safeway for me and got some was microwavable...
then I talked to my neighbour ...who said come see me if you can't found the good stuff.
So over I went ...she gave me a few ideas...
and a piece of really wax paper here are my tries
I must say the dark ink looked good..
you can see where the wax  marks are and how nice it showed up..
had to give some other embossing folders I had
a try
then in
and this like the first two ...but done in red ...
I have to say the red was my first try at the challenge
just did not seem able to put it into a card
but I will try ...with the others I made to create something...
all paper used was Recollections card stock
Misc ribbons...flower on green card..from Nina
Now make sure you stop by
Nina and Barb
cause I know there are going to be some awesome cards

Wowza Judy!!!

Looks like you were busy for a loooong time. I think all of your attempts are lovely - I think the red one would be perfect for a love card?

You did great - and as you know I had intended to go el-cheapo and get my wax paper at a dollar store but fate had me go with my Mr into a "real" grocery store and get the good stuff from the get go. I was hugging you in my mind when I heard your trial of the wax paper :(

So fun to do these challenges, can hardly wait for the next one.

Wonderful clean cards Judy, they sure display the results of your hard work nicely and I love all the colours you used. Thank you for trying this technique with me.

I love these, Judy!! Worth the frustration of the search for waxy wax paper :) I think the black might be my favourite! Thanks so much for playing in Paradise with us again :)
