Ink it! Stampit! Blog Hop - Using Embossing Paste

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop. The Design Team have been busy making projects using specific techniques. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects and we'd love to hear from you on what your favourite technique is.

Once you know a technique you can use it over and over again, for example I can't image card making without the masking technique, it is almost second nature to me lol!  I am still working on water colour backgrounds, and using bleach just scares me silly.  Today I am sharing a project with you using Embossing Paste - a new product in the 2017-2018 Catalogue, it's great way to add colour and texture to your project in your own custom way!

Now if you know me, you know I love a little bling, so I stepped up my project to include glitter

I will admit that this didn't turn out quite to plan, I spritzed some coloured water onto the paste, but my colour was to diluted to make a difference to the colour of the paste, but never fear, glitter to the rescue - it looks fab even without the touch of green I was trying for in the background!

I used the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle for this spectacular bunch of flowers, wrapping Berry Burst Finely Woven ribbon around the stems and attaching the bow separately. There are 21 framelits, so no fussy cutting with this bunch!

Here's a quick video tutorial of how I used the Embossing Paste for this project:

Some key things to remember when using Embossing Paste:
  • try not to leave little bits around the top of your jar, it will dry out 
  • a single drop of colour goes along way - remember less can be more!
  • you only need to apply a light coat over your stencil
  • wash your stencil and palette knife as soon as possible
  • it drys quicker than you think

There are LOTS of different ways to use Embossing Paste, you can also create your own stencils, or if you are really adventurous you don't even need a stencil - I have a plan to use glitter emboss paste on Christmas Trees, stay tuned to see that!

  1. What a beautiful card! I love the subtlety of your glittery background!
    Great minds must think alike - I have just finished a card with glittery embossing paste Xmas trees! It's addictive stuff, isn't it?!

  2. Gorgeous card, so pretty with the sparkle. We did the paste at our stamp club the other night and it was so much fun. The best part was how fast it dried.

  3. WOW Sue, the glittery dazzling diamonds looks just AWESOME over the embossing paste! You have started a new trend I feel! STUNNING effect. Adore your boquet and the way you have wrapped it with your ribbon. Gorgeous!

  4. Beautiful card Sue. Love the glitter background and your pretty bouquet. I haven't tried the embossing paste yet, but might need to get some now.

  5. This is gorgeous. Haven't tried the embossing paste yet. It looks great. Thanks for sharing

  6. This is beautiful the sparkles.
