Using the Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste

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.

Art With Heart Team May Stampin' Up! Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peeks!

16387394_10154010975516735_4953759083653002070_n

Hello there. It's blog hop time again with my super talented team members from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team in Australia. Today we would like to preview some of the amazing new products from the upcoming 2017/18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue which launches on June 1st. Be sure to ask any of the girls along the way for a copy of the new catalogue! We love to share what we are making with each other and with the stamping community. This is just one of the fun sharing activities we do each month, so if you are looking for a fun community of stampers to join ask us how quick, easy and affordable it is.

I am focusing on the Daisy Delight bundle of stamp set and punch for my cards. These will be available to purchase June 1st and there is a lovely coordinating Designer Series Paper as well.

  Stampin Up 2017/18 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Daisy Delight stamp set / Daisy Punch / emboss resist technique / seaside embossing folder / Powder Pink / Berry Burst

For this card I have embossed the daisy twice onto Shimmery White cardstock and then watercoloured over the top using two of the new InColours, Powder Pink and Berry Burst. Once dry, I cut out with the daisy punch and layered with a dimensional. The new Faceted Gems (also coming June 1st) are perfect flower centres, They come in clear (shown here) and gold.

In my second card, I have featured some of the  Beautiful Daisy Designer paper, along with paper from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (LOVE THIS!). You will also spy a new punch shape, and a new greeting from a great birthday stamp set / bundle called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. This time I have stamped the daisy in Wisteria Wonder ink onto the same coloured cardstock. I have used a cold faceted gem for the flower centre.

My final card features what I am sure is going to be one of my new favourite colour combinations for the new catalogue - Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide. This time I curled the daisy petals a little and added some Lemon Lime Ink (which turned out too hard to see because it's such a perfect match to the cardstock). For the flower centre, I have coloured some of the Perfect White Accents (in current catalogue) with a black sharpie and grouped them together.

For my background, I smooshed (that is a word you know!) onto a non stick BBQ sheet and then spritzed it and pressed the Shimmery White cardstock onto it (I did each colour separately).  You will also notice a new trim - and it's COPPER!! It's a loose -weave copper trim with zig zag stitching and will be available on June 1st. The cool thing is you can spread the fibres out which gives a great distressed look.

Stampin' Up! Moon Baby and Paper Piecing Technique

A lovely friend recently had a baby girl, so I got to make a girly card. This was lots of fun since I have a house full of boys here. I turned to the lovely Stampin' Up! Moon Baby stamp set from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. This stamp set has been proving very popular for colouring, but I decided to use the paper-piecing technique instead.

The beautiful Sweet Sugarplum Gingham paper is from the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper. There's also a little bit of the Falling in Love DSP in there (the small banner piece behind the banner and paper-pieced in the umbrella.
