CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge for our June.

Our theme is Take a Technique!

This months challenge is going to be super fun!!  Its all about texture!

This means using texture paste or embossing paste on your project or using a technique such as embossing, either embossing powder or embossing folders. Anything that gives your project a “touchy-feely” style!!

Wait, don’t forget the stamping, that with your texture should be fun!!

Take a look at my card:

Smile (CSTIMI)

Take a look at that textured background!!  I love it.

Here is how I created this card:

1. I taped my card base down to my work surface to keep it from moving.

2. I taped the Simon Says Stamp Grid Stencil on top of my card base.

3. I spread Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste on top of the Grid Stencil from the top left corner to the bottom right corner.

4.  While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled some Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Clear Rock Candy on top of the paste for a glittery look.


5. I set the card base down to dry.

6. I die cut Stampin’ Up! Butterflies Thinlits Dies out of a watercolor piece that I created awhile back.

Watercolor scrap

I love keeping scraps, you never know when you will need them.

7. I attach the butterfly with Glossy Accents.

8. I stamped the sentiment using Simon Says Clear Stamps Happy and Smile to the bottom right side of his card.

Nice and easy!!
