Hi there!  It’s time for a Stamping Sunday Blog Hop!!  This week the international design team has been playing with Embossing Paste.  Have you tried it yet?  This is one awesome, fun product!  Whether you’ve tried it yet or not, we’ve got lots of inspiration for you.  You’ll want to check out the team and this week’s guest designers.  We’re pleased to have Tanya Boser and Sarah Flemming joining us with their beautiful, creative take on the Embossing Paste!  Let’s take a look at those Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Embossing Paste creations starting below!!

Paisleys and Posies with Embossing Paste

Paisleys and Posies for Stamping Sunday Blog Hop from

My first creation is a card.

I started with a Basic Black cardstock base.

Then, I added a diagonally cut Lemon Lime Twist mat.

You’ll notice that it extends completely across the top but

only about three quarters of the way down the side.

Over this is the Whisper White focal layer.

For the focal layer, I started by flicking on Melon Mambo ink refill with an Aqua Painter.

Then, I used on of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and added a bit of

Embossing Paste in a random shape.

I then sprinkled on some embossing powder that I had previously tried to tint with

Melon Mambo ink refill.

While the embossing powder tinted, it no longer embossed.  But, it was perfect for using here

as it did not add any more moisture to the Embossing Paste.

Next, I stamped images from Paisleys and Posies in Melon Mambo and Memento Black.

Then, I cut out these images and a few additional shapes using the Paisley Framelits.

A little layering of die cut pieces and this card was done.

Mixed Media Décor with Embossing Paste

For my second creation, I created a little mixed media piece.

I started with a art canvas cube.

First, I tinted my acrylic paint with some Melon Mambo ink refill

and painted the front of the canvas.

To add some more interest, I tinted the paint a little further and dry brushed on some accents.

Then, I painted the sides of the cube with black acrylic paint.

Next, I used one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and

laid down some Embossing Paste in a rough texture.

Once the Embossing Paste had dried, I painted on some Versamark Refill.

After sliding the mask back on, I sprinkled on Gold Embossing Powder.

Remove the mask before heat setting the embossing powder!


Tips: Rinse the mask and palette knife immediately or set them in a tray of warm water.

This will keep the Embossing Paste from hardening on your tools.

    These are great, Sara! I tried gold and silver embossing on top of the paste and had a total failure. Yours turned out so much better! I love your paisleys card, too! Thanks for inviting me to participate in the hop!

      Thanks for joining us Sarah! You’ll have to try the embossing on the Embossing Paste again and try my technique of painting on the Versamark.

    Love the fun ways you used the embossing paste, and that you turned a previous experiment into a win with this experiment 😉

      Thanks Tanya! I hate to throw out even my “failed” experiments — they might just be waiting for the right ingredient!
