Hi! Today I have a card I made using the new Embossing Paste!! I love it!
Those clouds just pop off the page! Have you tried the Embossing Paste yet? If not, do NOT wait!! It is so fun and easy to use! Here is what I did:
- Lay a template – this is the Cloud Template from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. Use painter’s tape or a sticky note to keep the cardstock and template in place.
- Use a palette knife to spread the Embossing Paste over the template. If you only want partially – you can mask the template with scrap paper so only the clouds you want to emboss are open.
- Scrape off the excess paste and put it back in the jar.
- Let dry. This is pretty quick. While it is drying, you can work on the rest of your project.
For this card, I decided to finally pull out the Lift Me Up stamp set which thankfully carried over from the Occasions Catalog to the 2017-18 Annual Catalog. I stamped the two hot air balloon images from the set in Crushed Curry and die cut with the coordinating dies.
For the main hot air balloon, I used the Color Theory Designer Series Paper stack and Dapper Denim Cardstock. I love how the different sizes of balloons gives a sense of depth to the card.
So, what do you think? Are you going to give Embossing Paste a try? I sure hope so! If you don’t have any, why don’t you hop over to my on-line store and order some today! Just click here.

Hi,. Does the embossing paste chip away? On some cards that I have seen, not yours, the embossing paste is not a complete image on the beginning and end of the stencilled imaged? Thank you
Debbie – I don’t think it will chip away. I know on my Remarkable You card where I used a stencil, I masked the stencil to get the coverage I wanted and in that case, not all the holes were filled completely. You can see that in this card here: http://teresasstampinspot.com/2017/07/20/remarkable-you/
Thank you very much Teresa!
