Stampin’ Embossing Paste

September Greetings!

Stampin’ Up Embossing Paste has been so much fun to use!  I got it out again tonight to use as a background for a NEW favorite stamp set in the Holiday mini catalog, Painted Harvest

Here’s how to make it…..

  • start with Embossing Paste #141979 – it’s available now
  • Palette Knives are really helpful to have #142808
  • and Pattern Party Decorative Masks #144103
  • take a small amount of paste and put on Stampin’ Up’s Silicone Craft Sheet #127853
  • add a drop of Cajun Craze reindeer #119790 to the Embossing Paste and mix with your palette knife

IMPORTANT!  Work fairly quickly so the embossing paste does not get too dry – that’s the good thing – it does dry quickly!  When you finish spreading it on over the mask, take the template off and set aside…..it should be completely dry in a few minutes depending on size of template and amount of embossing paste used.

IMPORTANT!  Wash off your mask, palette knife, and silicone rubber mat when finished so the embossing paste does not dry attached to you tools.

  • Lay your mask over your card stock and
  • Spread Embossing paste back and forth pushing the Embossing  Paste through the mask onto the card stock
  • Remove the mask and lay card stock aside for Embossing Paste to dry completely
  • For the sunflowers, use Painted Harvest Bundle #146021 ***I absolutely love how the photopolymer stamp has texture in it to hold different amounts of ink so the images come out with lighter parts and darker parts to the image just like you naturally see when looking at a flower in real life
  • Stamp the largest flower part image with Crushed Curry ink
  • Make sure you get the best image by stamping on a Stampin’ Pierce mat #126199

  • Add the smaller flower part in Tangerine Tango ink right over top of the Crushed Curry part

  • Finally, add the center part of the sunflower in Early Espresso or Soft Suede ink

For this card, I cut out all three sunflowers

  • stamp leaf image in Old Olive ink on scrap Very Vanilla card stock and use the Leaf Punch that comes with the Painted Harvest stamp set in the bundle to punch out

  • I love the pattern paper that coordinates with this bundle….it is Painted Autumn DSP # 144613  and used a strip to heat emboss with Copper Embossing Powder

Now layer all your elements together!
