Well with a subject like that I could say that ‘resistance is futile’ when it comes to Fifth Avenue Floral! Its a wonderful stamp set and it can be used in so many ways and its just so very versatile.

For today’s Stamp A Stack my sister requested a card that could be used for Engagement congratulations and could be adapted for other occassions. So I put my thinking cap on and remembered a card I saw on the lovely Dawn Griffith’s blog.

Here is what the girls will be making today – well one of the cards at least!

5thAveCherish-CrayonResistThis card is done using the Crayon Resist technique and I’ve done it on gloss cardstock.

On Dawn’s video tutorial she says you can do this technique on whisper white cardstock so I did try that as well but found the sponging came out alot smother and softer on the gloss cardstock.


Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Greetings Eight, Warm Words
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Pirouette Pink, White Gloss, Whisper White
Ink: Baja Breeze, Going Gray, Jet Black Stazon, Pretty in Pink, Pirouette Pink
Accessories: White Oil Pastel, Stampin Sponges, Large Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch, Pink Taffeta Ribbon, Facial Tissue

I really love how this turned out and the colours – its so soft even with the gray rose in the centre.Where I have the word cherish on the oval it actually has the pencil hearts from Greetings Eight behind the word. I inked up in Pirouette Pink and then stamped off first before stamping onto the whisper white piece so there’s two faint hearts behind the word.  If you didnt want the hearts you could do it with any smaller image just to give it a little more style.

With just using the word cherish its suites any occasion – birthday, wedding, engagement, anniversary or get well or even just a thinking of you card!

If you would like to learn how to do the Crayon Resist technique then please feel free to contact me to arrange your class or demonstration.

Now I’d better get off this pc and finish my packing and get myself of the road to my sister’s place!

Till next time ….
