Embossing Paste on Cards

Patriot Card

Hello Friends,

Wow, have you ever tried using Embossing Paste on cards?  I was amazed at how quick and easy it is to do and the results are fabulous.  Decorative Masks + Embossing Paste = Playtime in Your Craft Room.  Love the uneven texture of the bricks!

 

 
Embossing Paste Tips and Tricks
 
Clean Up is easy as long as you clean your masks and tools right away before the paste hardens.
 
Use your re-inkers to color your paste.  I used Smoky Slate Ink for the sample above.
 
Relax and enjoy the process!  It should look slight uneven and imperfect.  That's the beauty of it.

So Many Shells

So Many Shells Card

Hello Friends,

Nothing says summer like Sea Shells and Sunshine.  With the official start of summer just days away, I thought that I would make a card with the So Many Shells Stamp set.  Its a two step stamp set which is always beautiful, but today I decided to try something a little different-Emboss Resist and Watercoloring.

 

Heat Embossing So Many Shells

 First, I heat embossed white shells on watercolor paper.  Easy Peasy.

 

Watercoloring So Many Shells

Next, I spritzed the watercolor paper with water, then using my aqua painter I splashed So Saffron and Powder Pink inks across my paper.  For good measure,  I gave it a final spritz to really emphasize the watery look.  After it was completely dry, I stamped Miracles happen with Night of Navy Ink.

Glitter Enamel Dots added the final look of shimmer and shine.  Then, I topped it off with pretty pink washi tape.

Chalkboard Technique in 3, Maybe 4 Easy Steps

Chalkboard Technique for Cards

Hello Friends,

Schools are closing their doors for the summer.  Kids are home.  Let's have one last hurrah!  Learn how to do the Chalkboard Technique in 3, Maybe 4 Easy Steps.  Add Chalkboard to your Card Making Skills.

Chalkboard Technique

Chalkboard Technique in 3, Maybe 4 Easy Steps

Step 1-Stamp and Heat Emboss your images White on Black.  Hint: Remember to use your Embossing Buddy so that the embossing powder only sticks where you want it.  I used the Balloon Adventures Stamp set which will officially be Retired in less than 2 days.  The Balloon Adventures stamp set is on Low Inventory status, so scoop up your set before it's gone.

Step 2-Stamp images again slightly offset with Whisper White Craft Ink to create the shadowed, slightly messy chalk look.

Step 3-Light rub Whisper White Craft ink in circular motions across your "chalkboard" to give it that just erased look.

Step 4-If you would like to add color to you white chalk, scribble across the areas that you want colored with colored pens.

Fusion

I chose to use the Fusion Photo for my inspiration.  I deviated from the baking theme, but I have the same slightly messy chalkboard look with white and colored chalks.
