Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Embossing Paste

June 25, 2017 25 Comments

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Header

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!!

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Embossing Paste

Paisleys and Posies for Stamping Sunday Blog Hop from theartfulinker.com

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.

    Two very gorgeous projects Sara! I love the mixed media effect with the embossing paste! TFS

    • Sara Levin June 29, 2017 at 9:13 am

      Thanks Anja! Me too. Such an easy way to add a little mixed media feel.

  • Sarah Fleming June 26, 2017 at 10:42 pm

    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!

    • Sara Levin June 27, 2017 at 8:22 pm

      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.

  • Tanya Boser June 26, 2017 at 8:37 pm

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

    • Sara Levin June 27, 2017 at 8:18 pm

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

    • Sara Levin June 27, 2017 at 8:20 pm

      Thanks Tanya! I hate to throw out even my “failed” experiments — because who knows when it comes to creativity?

  • Yvonne van Bruggen June 26, 2017 at 6:46 am

    Beautiful cards Sara!! Love the gold! Thanks for organising the hop 🙂 Love, Yvonne

  • Global Design Project Design Team June 26, 2017 at 4:56 am

    Mixed media is back baby! And I couldn’t be happier! Love your projects Sara

    • Sara Levin June 26, 2017 at 7:33 am

      Thank you Global Design Project Team! I hope we’ll be seeing lots of mixed media (or more of it).

  • Jennifer June 25, 2017 at 11:04 am

    Both of these projects are just wonderful!!! I love the idea of the mixed media piece. So pretty

    • Sara Levin June 26, 2017 at 7:31 am

      Thank you Jennifer! That little mixed media piece is so easy — you’ll have to give it a try.

  • inkythumbs June 25, 2017 at 10:38 am

    Wait! You tinted embossing powder?? What a cool idea! I love both projects – they both have a mixed media feel which is right up my alley!

    • Sara Levin June 26, 2017 at 7:30 am

      Yes, well I tried to Lynsay. Glad you enjoyed the projects. I think there will be many mixed media-like projects to come.

      Thank you Kelly! That embossing paste makes a mixed media effect a snap!

  • Anne Ronsky June 25, 2017 at 7:22 am

    Fabulous card and media piece, love to them both 🙂 the masks look like great fun and so versatile! Thank you for the inspiration and great tips 😉

    I love your creations, Sara. You have created some beautiful makes and I can’t wait to use embossing powder. D x

    • Sara Levin June 26, 2017 at 7:26 am

      Thank you Denita! I’ve been on an embossing kick lately — it’s finding it’s way into to lots of creations.
