Embossing paste is an easy way to add texture and interest to you cards. Using it with stencils you can add all kinds of interesting looks. For this card I took a stencil, masked off a section and applied embossing paste that was mixed with some re-inker. After I lifted the stencil, I added some Dazzling Diamonds for some sparkle. A little piece of glitter paper and a sentiment finished it off.
On this card I did embossing paste over patterned paper. This is one of my favorite looks. Remember that when you use embossing paste you need to wash your stencil and palette knife off right away so that the paste doesn’t dry on your tools. Hugs, Fran
Ribbon of Courage is a wonderful set for cards to cheer those in need of a special word of encouragement. I used the new embossing paste and decorative mask to make the background. The ribbon was stamped in Momento ink so I could use my Copics to color the image. The sentiment is on a banner that I just flagged at the ends. Hugs, Fran
More treats! While I still had my embossing paste out from yesterday’s project, I decided to try to use it on some of these little glassine bags. You have to work quickly on glassine so the paste doesn’t spread. I was still using the Hearts mask and was able to do two bags at a time. Once it was dry, I added a red Glimmer paper “love” and tied it off with some pretty red ribbon. Filled with treats, they look pretty! Hugs, Fran
Here’s another “find” during my cleaning spree – the Hearts Decorative Mask on a petite cafe bag. I did this one with embossing paste which turned out to be a bit harder than I thought since the bag does not lay flat. But I carried on! When it was dry I added the die cut word “love” stacking four of them together to give it some lift. Then I coated it with Crystal Effects for shine. I also added some small hearts from the Confetti Hearts Border punch. Hugs, Fran
