I Couldn't Resist!

Good Friday Morning to all of you! This week's Blogger's Challenge is to use a favorite resist technique. I have to admit that I don't really know too many techniques when it comes to stamping, let alone resist techniques, but that's why it's called a challenge...right? Then I remembered my Stampin' Up demonstrator showing me how to do the Crayon Resist Technique a while back. Thanks a bunch Clara! You can find step by step directions for this technique over on Splitcoaststampers. Just click here.

My card (just click on it for a closer look at this technique) uses a few of my favorite retired Stampin' Up products...the Delight in Life stamp set, one of the sentiments from the Living Large stamp set, and my most favorite card stock color...Cool Caribbean. The other accents include a black layer embossed with my Swiss Dots folder in my 'bug, a few Kaiser Craft self-adhesive Pearls, and a bit of Swirl ribbon and Polka Dot ribbon from May Arts.

I'm certain that there are a few other Resist Techniques out there in the stamping world, so I'm off to check out what the other members of the group came up with. Just click on the Blogger's Challenge logo in my sidebar to visit their blogs too.

Today is also Kendra Gile's turn to share a Storage Units, Ink & More Sneak Peek. Hop by her blog, Inkin' It Up! to see her adorable creation and a chance to win the Leap Frog set! Thanks so much for stopping by today...Toodles!!! :D
