Christmas Greetings

The Stampendous Design Team has been sharing their Embossing Paste Creations.

I didn't take any pictures of the process when I made this one but I think this is a great example of coloring your own paste.

All of the green paste on this Christmas Card was made with the Holly Flourish Stencil and Regular Embossing Paste.



Stampendous:SSC1233 Joyful Phrases Perfectly Clear Stamps™
SSH38 Small Perfectly Clear™ Acrylic Handle
MPW811 Mixed Media White Paper
Dreamweaver:
DWLG731 Holly Flourish Stencil
DWDEP Regular Embossing Paste
DWDPK Dreamweaver Palette Knife
DWLM2010 Paste Spreader
Plus:Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®Memento™ Ladybug Red Ink by Tsukineko®
Light Green & Phthalo Green Acrylic Paint by Jack Richeson & Co., Inc.
Red Rhinestones
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives


Instructions:

  1. Mix acrylic paints with embossing paste on a craft mat to create green paste and then emboss the Holly Flourish on to a white cardstock panel.
  2. Add red rhinestones to the panel while the paste is still wet and then set aside to dry.
  3. Stamp sentiment on the lower left corner of the stenciled panel with red ink.
  4. Back the panel with a slightly larger red panel and then adhere to a green card base.
  5. Adhere rhinestones down the right side of the card.


You can see another card I made with colored embossing paste and some pics of the mixing HERE.

So...I hope this shows you how versatile the Regular embossing paste is.
You can just ad paint and create a rainbow of colors!
