Embossing Paste

Tool Tuesday: Embossing Paste

Today for Tool Tuesday I wanted to share Stampin' Up's new tool the Embossing Paste. This Paste adds a whole new dimension, literally dimension to your papercrafts! It reminds me of how texturing a wall in your home makes such a difference. The thicker you apply it, the more grooves and depth. Apply a small amount and it provides a point of interest. Cool stuff!!

Features: 
  • Matte finish
  • 4 0z
  • adds various textures


Benefits:
  • dries fast
  • easy to apply
  • can be used with a mask, or applied with tools
  • adds texture and interest
  • glitter or reinker can be added to the embossing paste to add more versatility
  • can make interesting backgrounds to cards and scrapbook pages using the application tools or using a mask

Here is a video from Stampin' Up









Have a great day!!

Stampin' Up Pockets of Sunshine and Wood Crate Texas scrapbook page, treat and card ensemble


On Saturdays I like to post what I call Saturday Series. Which is where I like to take one product and showcase it several ways. Well the last couple of days here in Texas have been a little rough, where everyone is glued to the TV to see about the hurricaine. We live several hours from the eye of the storm, but its hard to watch it unfold. So today I wanted to showcase some TEXAS ideas!! As I was making this scrapbook page and card, I was singing "God Bless Texas!" so if you wanna hum along, so ahead!! :)))





What do you think... pretty cute right!! I thought so!!

Here's a closer look at the scrapbook page.



I really liked the colors, very warm and so TEXAN!! I wanted to show you a closer picture of the pocket and heart, they kinda steal the show!



To make the pocket, I first started out with a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I used the foam brayer and added Night of Navy Ink, until I got the desired 'denim' look I was going for. I wanted it to look faded, so the brayer did the trick. If you haven't tried the new foam brayer, it's pretty easy and to me it seemed easier to control the amount of color. After I used the brayer, I then cut it out using the Pocket Framelits. I tried a couple different colors for the stitching on the pocket....Real Red did the trick!! LOVE it!!



Here's the 2nd page. How much fun is this scrapbook page!! So I made the heart using the Sweet and Sassy Heart Framelits. I cut 3 hearts out of Night of Navy, Real Red and Whisper White cardstock, I then layered and cut them so they resemble the Texas flag!! I really love how this turned out. For the title "Hey Ya'll"  I used the Hand Lettered Alphabet Stamp. This was sooo easy to line up because it's a photopolymer set, and you can see right through it. After I stamped the title I then embossed it with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. I daubed it with Soft Suede.



Here's a card I made. I really like how this turned out. This would be a perfect card for those effected by the storm, or a birthday or just thinking of you!!


Here's a fun treat I made, filled with candy coated nuts!! Yum!!!

I hope you have enjoyed this and feel inspired!!
Have a blessed day!!

Stampin' Up Oh So Eclectic Daisy Scrapbook page

Once  a month I have a big class, it's called Super Saturday! We make scrapbook pages and cards, and laugh and have the best time.
I wanted to share one of the pages we made this month. I truly is one of my favorite scrapbook pages.





This page turned out so pretty. I think it would be perfect for just about any type of photo, a family, one 5x7, or children, or a couple. I used the new Pine wood Planks embossing folder. I spritzed it first with water then ran it through the Big Shot. The Pine Wood Plank is in Crumb Cake, it is big enough I ran it through then lined it up, and ran it through again to finish off the panel. I then used the Triple Banner Punch to make "notches" on the edge, so it resemble more of a wood fence. I then daubed the edges in Soft Suede ink. Here is a closer picture




The embossing on this folder is realistic, it really looks good in real life. :)  The butterflies were cut in So Saffron and sponged in Berry Burst, soooo pretty!! I used the Timeless textures to give the spray of dots. Don't you just LOVE that sentiment?? It's from the stamp set Bookcase Builder. LOVE IT!!




I used the Daisy Punch and made 3 layers of  So Saffron, I daubed the center and used a Glitter Enamel dot in the center. I  used the Oh so Eclectic Bundle to make the stamped flowers. 




Here's the other side of the page. I hope you enjoyed this and feel inspired.

Here's the supplies I used, have a great day!
