I was thrilled when I picked up my mail yesterday to see that the
embossing paste I'd ordered had arrived! I love happy mail!!
I've never used embossing paste before and I'd been waiting eagerly to play with it.
I just have to say that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!
The texture that it gives a card is simply fantastic!!! And the fact that you can make
it any color you want - well that just makes me smile!
I used two or three drops of crumb cake ink and mixed into a little bit
of the paste. I used the Tim Holtz burlap stencil and a regular butter knife to
spread on the paste. When I pulled off the stencil I think I literally squealed
After it dried, I decided to just layer things on, and make it a birthday card
since I seem to be needing those lately. I know I have a punch that would punch
those flowers out beautifully but I cut them out this time as I wanted very little of
the white showing on the edge.
Looking at it now I have another idea :)
card stock: whisper white, crumb cake, pear pizzazz
stamp set: flower shop, something to celebrate
ink: pool party, calypso coral, crumb cake
stencil: burlap stencil (Tim Holtz)
punch: bird builder
embellishments: white embossing paste (Dreamweaver).
