My jar of Embossing Paste has been sitting in my craft cupboards for about two weeks. I decided to crack open the seal on the jar and try a few different techniques.
There are three products you will need:
- Embossing Paste
- Palette Knives
- Pattern Party Decorative Masks (4)
This is a birthday card using the Happiest of Days Stamp Set. I spread a thin layer of Embossing Paste with a Palette Knife across the brick decorative mask. Removed the mask and let it dry.
The card base is Soft Suede Cardstock and the top layer is Whisper White Cardstock. The sentiment is stamped with Soft Suede Ink and colored with the 2016-2017 In Color Markers. I used a Sponge Dauber in the Soft Suede Ink across the bricks. Learn from my overzealous sponging--use a light touch because mine looks like blobs.
To detract from the sponging, I decided to add a bow from the Peekaboo Peach 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding. NOTE: I wasn't going to show you this card, but wanted you to see my projects don't always turn out.
This is a thank you or congratulations card using the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set. I spread a thin layer of Embossing Paste with a Palette Knife across the medallion decorative mask. Removed the mask and poured Silver Embossing Powder over it. Used the Heat Tool to dry it.
The card base is Dapper Denim Cardstock, the second layer is from the Silver Foil sheet and the top layer is from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack (DSP). The sentiment is stamped with VersaMark Ink on DSP with Silver Embossing Powder poured over it. Used the Heat Tool to dry it.
Punched the sentiment out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. Added a Silver Foil Paper mat using a 1 3/8" Circle Punch. This was added to a Dapper Denim Pretty Label Punch and attached to the card front with Dimensionals. Two Rhinestone Jewels finish off this card.
This is a birthday card using the Happy Birthday Thinlit. I spread a thin layer of Embossing Paste with a Palette Knife across the diamond decorative mask. Removed the mask and let it dry. My first attempt at coloring the dried Embossing Paste was to use rubbing alcohol and a few drops of Lemon Lime Twist re-inker in a spray bottle. That worked, but the color wasn't dark enough for me. I ended up using a Sponge in the Lemon Lime Twist Ink Pad and rubbing color everywhere. That worked much better.
The card base is Basic Black Cardstock and the top layer is Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock. I used a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the Basic Black Cardstock Happy Birthday Thinlit. Peeled off the backing and attached it to the card front. The balloons are from Basic Black Cardstock and a Silver Foil Sheet using the Balloon Bouquet Punch.
A Lemon Lime Twist Bitty Bow on the balloons and a Rhinestone Jewel on the "i" finish off this card.
This is a thinking of you card using the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set. I spread a thin layer of Embossing Paste with a Palette Knife on the left side of the card front. I opened the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder and pressed it on top of the Embossing Paste. Remove it and let it dry. Wash the embossing folder with warm water.
The card base is Whisper White Cardstock and the next layer is Crumb Cake Cardstock. The Crumb Cake Cardstock edges are sponged in Crumb Cake Ink. A Whisper White Cardstock banner was created from the Banner Triple Punch. A Delicate White Doily was sponged with Crumb Cake Ink and peeks out from behind the banner. The banner is attached to the card with Dimensionals.
A small flower from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits was cut in Crumb Cake Cardstock and sponged with Crumb Cake Ink. It is attached to the banner with Glue Dots. A Pearl Jewel finishes off this card.
This project uses the Wood Crate Framelits from a piece of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack, cut through the Big Shot. Tear & Tape Adhesive was used to assemble the crate. It is decorated with a flower medallion from the Paint Play Stamp Set.
- Put a nickle-size amount of Embossing Paste in a plastic artist palette.
- Stir in two drops of Berry Burst re-inker.
- Punch out a Whisper White Cardstock 1 3/8" Circle and tack down to scratch paper with a small amount of SNAIL Adhesive.
- Spread a thin layer of the Embossing Paste with a Palette Knife across the circle.
- Dip the floral image in water and press on the circle.
- Remove the stamp, wash in warm water, and let the medallion dry.
- Wrap Silver Thread around your fingers and attach to the back of the medallion with Glue Dots.
- Put Dimensionals on the back of the medallion and attach to the crate.
- A Rhinestone Jewel to the center of the flower and a cellophane bag of candy finishes off this project.

If you live in the United States, you can purchase the supplies to make these project from my 24/7 store here.
Here is part of my table in my studio. It was fun creating projects to share with you. Now it is time to clean up!
Sorry for only two blog posts this week, though today's is very long to make up for it. It has been a busy around our house. I've been helping my brother look for a new house. He put an offer on one, which is contingent upon the inspection on Monday. Dan and I have been chauffeuring our two oldest grandgirls to Summer Academy. Sometimes the chauffeuring turns into lunch and an adventure, which we love doing. We've also been dealing with our insurance company and the contractor to get our siding and roof replaced from the hail storm earlier in the month. And, last, but not least, I've been working on tomorrow's New Catalog Product Extravaganza. If your plans have changed and you can make it, please stop by. No RSVP needed.
