Embossing Paste

Beautiful Bouquet Touches of Nature cards

 I am determined to use my Stampin' Up! accessories and embellishments this year (see this post), and so I am keeping little dishes and containers of embellishments like the one below on my stamping desk so that I use them!!  I LOVED adding the Touches of Nature wood embellishments to these 2 "Beautiful Bouquet" stamped cards!

 

Beautful Bouquet stamp set card featuring Stampin Up touches of nature wood elements and embossing paste by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

 These cards were so easy to create! Both are "top fold" cards created with Thick Whisper White cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11' and folded in 1/2.  Each one had a piece of cardstock that is 4" x 5-1/4" and decorated with embossing paste and the Pattern Party masks (SEE THIS POST and VIDEO), and then a 2"x4-1/4" piece of Delightful Daisy designer paper was adhered on top with Fast Fuse.  I tied them both up with the wonderful Crushyed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron ribbon.

The focal points on my cards are an oval Stitched Shape framlit (die cut in the Big Shot) and matted with a Scalloped Oval  die cut in Old Olive. 

They are stamped with the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive.  The thanks a bunch sentiment also comes from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  If you are looking for a GREAT all occasion set with greeting, this is definitely your best bet!!

The final touches:

1.  add centers to the flowers:  I colored Perfect White Accents with a black sharpie marker and added them to the centers of the yellow flowers

2.  I used the Touches of Nature wood embellishments - both the white side and the wood side, on my cards. I added them with some Multipurpose glue, and while they dried, I just grabbed a "chip clip" and clamped them down so they'd stick!! LOL

And for something really fun, mix Gold Glitter into your Stampin' Up! embossing paste and add Crushed Curry reinker for some snazzy gold bricks!!!  SEE THIS POST for more info about that fun technique!

Carols of Christmas - New Bundle! card idea

Starting Tomorrow, August 1st, you can order this fun Carols of Christmas bundle - an early pre-release purchase opportunity one month ahead of the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday Catalog release!  I am sharing a pretty card and fun embossing paste & glitter "snow" technique with you today!  I made this card when I stamped with Cindee a couple weeks ago!!! So fun!

 

  Carols of Christmas Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog Peace on Earth pine tree card featuring embossing paste and glitter snowy trees by Patty Bennett

 

You might be asking... #1, how did you get that amazing fun glittery snow?? (read on in this post for the secret using Embossing Paste!) and #2, how did you get 3 colors on your Peace on Earth stamp!?  For that trick, we inked the top 1/2 of the stamp on a Dapper Denim pad, then the bottom 1/2 on a Tranquil Tide pad, and then used a black Stampin' Write marker to go over the center... then stamped on Whisper White die cut with a Stitched Shape framelit.

This is what the stamp set and framelit die bundle looks like... order #146036 for wood mount and #146037 for clear mount rubber here in my online Stampin' UP! store.

Now, on to the secret of the snowy, glittery hillside and trees!  Spread Embossing Paste onto cardstock with your palette knife, making it somewhat uneven to resemble a snowy blown wintery hillside, then sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter while the paste is still wet!!!! (yes!! I actually used glitter!!!)

Basket of Sunflower Note Card Set

 

I'm wondering if you would have guessed that these sweet sunflower baskets were stamped with images from the Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set!? 

Sunflower Basket ovals on cards and gold striped treat bags.  Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set and Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  by Patty Bennett

I stamped these sweet "sunflower baskets" on Whisper White Stitched Shape oval framelits, and then added them to cards and a gift bag!  I love the new Gold Striped Treat bags from Stampin' Up! (find the bags on page 195, #144255)

Each basket and sunflower bouquet is stamped with the Bike Ride stamp set (pg 20, #143716) in Archival Black ink onto a Whisper White stitched shape oval and layered onto a scalloped Layering Oval die cut in Old Olive cardstock.  I stamped "Thanks a bunch" in Pumpkin Pie ink from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (pg 93, #143666) onto each oval.

 

  Sunflower Basket ovals.  Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set and Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  by Patty Bennett

 

Tip for the sunflower centers ... color the White Perfect Accents with your Black Sharpie marker and add one to each flower center!

White perfect accents colored with black sharpie marker stampin up 138416 pattystamps tip

 

Below:  On the first card, I added a little Old Olive 1/8" sheer ribbon bow to the basket, and then added the entire oval onto a card that I embellished with some embossing paste bricks... the REALLY cool thing about these bricks is that I added Gold Glitter to the embossing paste along with the Cajun Craze ink refill.. it gives the "brick wall" amazing texture!!  CLICK HERE to learn how to use embossing paste!

I tied up the card with some 1/4" Copper Trim and "frayed out" the ends to create more neat texture on the card.

Above:  I mixed Lemon Lime Twist reinker with my embossing paste and spread it on Basic Black cardstock using the Palette knives and Pattern Party Masks for this dramatic background for this sunflower basket card.  I added just a small strip of  Delightful Daisy designer paper to the bottom of the card, then tied it off with Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron ribbon in 2 places.

Above:  with my 4th sunflower basket oval, I decided to layer it onto a Gold Striped Treat Bag, and use a strip of Gold Foil paper that I had punched with the Decorative Ribbon punch, plus a gold metallic doily to dress it up a bit.  Then I added some Pear Pizzazz 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon to bring out the green scalloped oval.

Not sure about you, but I would LOVE to be sitting in this beach chair right now!  Can't you just feel the cool breeze, warm sun and the sand in your toes!?  Well, ok, maybe not.. but it was a good thought :)

Tip #1:

Create a cloudy sky using the Stampin' Up! Pattern Party cloud mask and embossing paste (or you could sponge white ink over the stencil, too!)

And Bonus Cloud Tip:  use a piece of printed background paper for the sky! I used a piece from the Naturally Eclectic DSP package (pg 188, #144185).

 

Supplies and Details to create this card:

  • Card Base: 4-1/4" x 11" "top fold" card with Bermuda Bay cardstock
  • Use embossing paste & cloud stencil on Naturally Eclectic printed paper for the sky
  • stamp the "water" image from Fabulous Flamingo onto Pool Party cardstock
  • Tear a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock for the sand, and stamp with the Sheltering Tree image (see info below)
  • Die cut the adirondack chair with Real Red cardstock (using the Seasonal Layers framelits)
  • Create a punch art sun using the Starburst punch (details below)
  • Add a 1/2" wide Whisper White "flag" punched with the Triple Banner punch and stamped with stars and "hello friend" both from the Wood Words stamp set, then embellished with enamel shape stars

I put on a really light coat of embossing paste to try to make the clouds look fluffy and wind blown.  You can also put on a thicker coat of embossing paste and create thick white clouds.

Tip #2:

Stampin UP! embossing paste background card idea featuring Delightful Daisy punch and Oh So Eclectic stamp set. Lovely Words thinlit dies embellishment. by Patty Bennett

 You know how much I love flowers.. in my garden AND in my stamping projects... I really love these beautiful flower cards that I came up with showcasing embossing paste backgrounds, new Stampin' UP! In Colors, and the the Lovely Words Thinlit dies.  On the left card I decorated it with punched Daisy images, new Decorative Ribbon border punch, and a Clear Faceted Gem.  On the right card, I stamped and die cut with the Oh So Eclectic stamp set for the flowers and die cut Lemon Lime twist leaves with the Ribbon of Courage/Support Ribbon framelit dies.

Stampin UP! embossing paste background card idea featuring Delightful Daisy punch and Lovely Words thinlit dies embellishment. by Patty Bennett

 

The best secret for the fun Daisy punch is to stamp and punch it twice, then layer them together and add them to your project.  I also like to "curl" the petals gently backwards to give it some volume and interest.  On the Daisy below, I stamped in Berry Burst ink on Whisper White, then just "blended" the color a bit with a Clear Wink of Stella pen.. so it glistens and has some fun variations in color.

Patriotic 4th of July Bike Ride Card

 

The Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set and framelit bundle is AMAZING and sooo much fun to play with!  I created this cute patriotic / 4th of July card idea after die cutting lots of fun bike and accessory pieces with this bundle!

 

Bike Ride 4th of July patrioit card idea featuring brick embossing paste background, die cut doggie, sunflowers, and baskets. Card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

You can see this darling Bike Ride bundle (stamp set & framelits) on page 20 of the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog, or here in my online Stampin' UP! store.

I started by stamping and die cutting all of the pieces in this set, including the bike, wheels, baskets, doggie, flowers, apples, books, and all the other little accessory pieces.  I did stamp the bike frame and wheels on Glossy Cardstock.. it gives such a great solid image!

Then I created a background for my card by applying embossing paste (mixed with glitter) onto a vanilla 4"x5-1/4" panel, and adding a strip of Pick a Pattern Washi tape as the "road".  I adhered the brick panel to a folded Real Red card.  For more info on applying the embossing paste brick background to your card click to watch my free Embossing Paste video tutorial.

 

Stamped and Die cut pieces for Bike Ride 4th of July patrioit card, die cut doggie, sunflowers, bike and baskets. Card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

Step 1:  stamp Bike Ride images

Step 2: color in images with makers, or, stamp with the coordinating stamps as I did here

Step 3: die cut with matching Bike Ride framelit dies in the Big Shot

Step 4: assemble pieces on your card

Step 5: store extra pieces in little containers for future use

Above is a different version of the same card, and I added a "hello friend" greeting banner.

Special Notes:

  • be sure to add the cute handle streamers.. they are die cuts in the framelit set. I put one drop of fine-tip glue on the handles and added the streamers... so cute!  I mean SERIOUSLY so cute!
  • for fun glossy accents, color some White Perfect Accents with a Black Sharpie marker and add to the sunflower centers and on the center of the wheels!

Daisy Delight bundle card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste, medallion mask, Daisy Delight stamp set and punch and Delightful Daisy designer paper. Topped off with Night of Navy Ginham ribbon. By Patty Bennett

 

I demonstrated how to use the Embossing Paste and Pattern Party decorative masks at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator event, and I also shared the Embossing Paste instructions in THIS video.  For this card, I used the medallion mask and colored my Embossing Paste with Crushed Curry ink refill!

  Daisy Delight bundle card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste, medallion mask, Daisy Delight stamp set and punch and Delightful Daisy designer paper. Topped off with Night of Navy Ginham ribbon. By Patty Bennett

Per my instructions above, "coloring in" the stamped daisy with a Wink of Stella pen gives just the right amount of color to the petals, AND of course makes them glimmer!!!  I stamped the daisy center stamp in the center with Daffodil Delight ink and then added an Enamel Glitter dot to the center. 

Be sure you punch and layer 2 daisies for the effect above.  I think it also helps to "curve" the petals using the Stampin' Pierce mat and the bone folder.. see my instructions above for the details.

Finish off the card with a sentiment stamped onto a die cut banner, a strip of daisy paper and the Night of Navy gingham ribbon!!

I took these display boards to the meeting and did a demonstration showing how to use the embossing paste, masks, palette knives and silicone mat, and all participants were able to create some backgrounds with the embossing paste.  I think they enjoyed learning how to use it!
