Fun with Embossing Paste

Are you loving the new Embossing Paste?  It is SOOO fun and sooooo easy to use.  Clean up is ‘easy breezy’!  This week the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop will be featuring embossing (paste or folder) and I went with paste!

I wanted to feature the embossing paste on dsp and it looks AWESOME!  Here’s the details…

  • Crumb Cake – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Striped dsp (Naturally Eclectic) – 3 3/4 x 5, use stencil and embossing paste, let dry, layer onto Night of Navy 3 7/8 x 5 1/5, add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out Stitched Oval, stamp greeting using Fresh Fig
  • Fresh Fig and Emerald Envy – cut out solid leaves, add Fig one BEHIND oval and add oval to card front using dimensionals.
  • Night of Navy – cut out detailed leaf, add Emerald Envy solid leaf and this one to front of oval
  • Crumb Cake Ribbon – tie into a bow and add to card front to finish off.

Oh So Eclectic

Can you believe it…it’s another Thursday so time for some more inspiration from Create with Connie and Mary.

We once again have a ‘CASE the Catalog’ inspiration and this time we are using a card from page 18.  LOVE the CAS look of the sample and decided to go with the layout (and most of the design team did too!).  I just got my NEW STUFF yesterday.  Unfortunately there was a problem with the set I planned to use (waiting for a replacement) so went this with new set instead!

Here’s the details…

  • Peek-a-boo Peach – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded, stamp the small images in Peek-a-boo Peach
  • Naturally Eclectic – pick two prints – one 4 1/2 x 1 1/4 and the other 4 1/2 x 3/4, layer and add to card front
  • Emerald Envy – 4 3/4 x 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp solid leaf in Lemon Time Twist and outline leaf image in Old Olive, do two, cut out and add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp greeting using Night of Navy, punch out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch
  • Pumpkin Pie – punch out 1 3/8″ circle, layer greeting onto it and add using dimensionals
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off
