I tried out the new embossing paste from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue last weekend. There are 3 key products in this range:
The masks can be used for spongeing, but in this case when combined with the Embossing Paste and smoothed over with the Palette Knives, you get a lovely raised effect which adds dimension and texture to your papercraft projects. It's super simple to use (just make sure you have a plastic mat) and I was surprised how quickly it dried. I use my Silicone Craft Sheet to create colours by adding a drop or two of re-inker to 3/4 - 1 teaspoon of Embossing Paste (that usually covers a couple of cards. I use the Palette Knives to mix on the Silcone Craft Sheet. There's a video at the end of the post which shows how this is done.
Here's a closer look at the four mask patterns you get in the Party Patterns Decorative masks pack.
Here's two of the cards I made. For this one I have used 2 drops of Powder Pink ink refill in about 1 teaspoon of embossing paste, and then sprinkled some gold glitter randomly over the top (while the embossing paste was still wet) and shook off the excess.
My stamp set is Happy Birthday Gorgeous which is a new set 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. I love the funky font on this set and it has so many other great greetings. The paper is Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.
For this second card I have used the cloud mask and 1 drop of Soft Sky re-inker in about 3/4 teaspoon of Embossing Paste. I love the effect this gives for clouds. I have used the Lift Me Up stamp set and Up & Away Thinlits to complete my card. This is a nice colour combination to use with the new InColour Powder Pink.
Here's a video showing you more about using the new Embossing Paste.
