Hello and welcome to Altenew’s April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new washi tape and embossing paste.  If you arrived here from the talented Alex Syberia blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Let’s take a look at my planner page:

Embossing Paste

I love decorating my planner with card making supplies. Altenew’s new Embossing Paste looks amazing on these pages.

Here’s how I created the two-tone color butterfly:

Embossing Paste

Scoop out a small amount of the embossing paste on a piece of disposable plastic (I used a zip bag, it was on my desk).

Then I added a small amount of color from the Puffy Heart Ink Spray and Sunkissed Metallic Shimmer Ink spray to the embossing paste and mixed it in.

Place the Flowing Butterfly Stencil where you want the image and apply the color paste evenly.

Gently pick up the stencil to see the image.

Embossing Paste

Stamp the sentiment from the Reason to Smile stamp set above and/or below the image.

Let’s take another look:

I also created a bookmark for my planner as well, using the same method as before.

Here’s a close up. Look at that texture and depth.

Take a look at my card:

Happy Holiday (TIMI)

Here in the USA, we are in the middle of fall and winter.  No, snow in my are yet, but they have some 4 hours away from me.  I hope we don’t get any.  I don’t care for the snow to much.  It makes it hard to drive.  Don’t get me wrong, its pretty but its troublesome.

I created this card using Purple Onion Designs Stacey Yacula Studio – Birch (Winter Bunny)!  Such a cute image and fun to color.  I used my Faber-Castel Polychromos Coloring Pencils.

I inked the background, added some embossing past for snow and a stitched hill.

I love how this card turned out!! Super pretty!

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!!

Striped Thanks

Hello everyone!  I’m here with Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #176: Backgrounds with Embossing Paste.  It’s been a while since I’ve played along with them.  So, I’m glad I had a chance to play today.

Laura Bassen showed us how to use our dies to create stencils so that we could make pretty backgrounds using embossing paste.

I’ve done this before so it was nice to do this technique again.

Here is my card:

Thanks {watercolor}2

Here is how I create my card:

1. I used Papertrey Ink’s Stripes Horizontal Cover Plate to create my stencil.  I just ran the cover plate through my big shot twice for some thickness.

2. One at a time I mixed my distress reinkers with Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste.  I mixed the paste and  Mustard Seed Distress Ink and spread my paste on the top of my stencil thick.  Then I mixed Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and spread it in the middle of the stencil, thick.  The last I mixed Picked Raspberry and spread it on the bottom of my stencil, thick.

3.  I lightly spread the paste upwards from the bottom to mix the colors going up.  Once I removed all of the excess paste, I removed my stencil to reveal the colorful stripes.

4. I set my card panel to the side and die cut my middle Papertrey Ink Circle Scribbles Die out of Stampin’ Up! Vellum.

5. Then I die cut Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks out of Basic Black Cardstock.

6. I adhered the vellum scribble to my striped card panel with Glossy Accents.  I added my scripty thanks to the vellum scribble with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

7. I rounded my corners with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper (which by the way broke today, I’m so sad, I have to buy another one.).

8. The “thanks” looked to plain so I added Glossy Accents for a little shine.

That’s how I created this card!!  Oh by the way, my card size is 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 scored at 5-1/2.  My card panel measures 4 x 5-1/4.

So what do you think?  Let me know.
