Embossing Paste Love and Hugs to You

Today’s project showcases Stampin’ Up!’s Ribbon of Courage stamp set, our new Embossing Paste, and a beautiful butterfly from the Move Me thinlits!

So, confession time. I’ve had the Embossing Paste for months and never opened it until I sat down to make this project! Why did I wait so long??!? This stuff is amazing and so easy to work with! I don’t know what I was so afraid of – silly me.

As I was perusing Pinterest, I was inspired by THIS card by Linda Bauwin and thought it would be a great layout to try the embossing paste for the first time. So easy!

I put about a nickel-sized dollop of it on our Silicone Craft Sheet and mixed in 2 drops of Blushing Bride ink refill using one of the palette knives. It’s just like mixing food coloring into frosting! Then, I placed the brick pattern mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks over the Whisper White card front and spread the embossing paste over the mask from the upper right to the lower left of the cardstock, keeping my palette knife at a 45-degree angle. When you peel away the mask, you will be amazed! It only takes a few minutes to dry – which is also amazing.

I hope you’ll try this stuff! There are so many ways to customize using it by adding color, using different masks, and even sprinkling some embossing powder on it and heat embossing for a super cool effect!
