Embossing Paste Stenciling ~ Any Occasion Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

At a recent class I was asked by my card crafting ladies to share how to use the two types of Embossing Paste that Stampin’ UP! offer. It is a fun product to work with and while you can use any of the ready made masks/stencils available in the catalogs, it is fun to make your own! I used the Split Card Texture Dies to create mine then added some heat embossing on vellum and a little vintage’ing as well – so today’s card is packed with techniques!

  • Base Card: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Very Vanilla Thick Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
  • Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Crumb Cake Card
  • Ink Color: Versamark with White Embossing Powder and Crumb Cake

There are two types of Embossing Paste, a matt and shimmery version, I used the matt one for this card and it would work equally as well with the shimmery version!

Using a piece of scrap card I die cut my stencil, then firmly fixing it to my work surface with the Crumb Cake layer underneath and using a Palette Knife to spread the Embossing Paste ~ it is a bit like buttering bread or frosting a cake, very quick and simple to do. Once this was done I removed the stencil immediately and set it aside to dry – this only takes about 10 mins and you can always hurry it along with a Heat Tool.

Remember to keep a pan of warm soapy water and some paper towels handy when you use the Embossing Paste – it helps with clean up!

While the embossing paste is drying I stamped and embossed a couple of poppies from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set then cut with the Poppy Moments dies. Once dry I was able to stamp and heat emboss some leaves onto the Crumb Cake Layer, before adding some Crumb Cake ink with a Blending Brush to soften the edges and give a bit of a vintage look.

I have a series of video’s on using embossing paste, you can check them out here 🙂

Heat Embossing on Vellum

Once assembled I attached the vellum flowers with Mini Glue Dots and added a couple of Pearl Basic Jewels to finish off.
