Embossing Paste and Ink Refills

This weekend's classes were really fun but they got a little messy when the embossing paste, ink refills and glitter came out to play.

Did you know that you can colour the Embossing Paste and have it co-ordinate with any of the Stampin' Up! cardstock? There are so many different things you can do with the white stuff -
  • Use it plain
  • Colour it with Ink Refills
  • Do an ombre effect with the Ink Refills
  • Glitter it
Plus other things we didn't get around to trying in the class.

Here's one of my samples that wasn't made at the class.

Embossing Paste, Birthdays, Birthday Blooms

I mixed a little of the Embossing Paste with a couple of drops of Berry Burst ink refill. When completely mixed, the paste was spread across the Whisper White cardstock through the brickwork mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. I didn't want to cover the whole of the card front so I was deliberately random as to where I spread the paste.

I really like this grunge look with the oval sentiment in the centre.

The sentiment from the Birthday Blooms stamp set was stamped in Black Archival Ink and then cut out using an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  To finish, I added a Powder Pink flower that had been cut out using a die from the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits.

This was a pretty easy card to make and could easily be replicated in more masculine colours and with a more masculine font for the sentiment.

Here's one of the cards that was made at class.

The Night of Navy cardstock had the embossing paste spread over it though the large medallion from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and then Dazzling Diamond Glitter was sprinkled over it before the paste had a chance to dry.

You can just make out the sparkle of the glitter on this last picture. 

Do you live in the UK and fancy giving these cards ago and trying the embossing paste for yourself? You can order it (and the masks and palette knives) from my Online Store and if you do, I'll send you the link to the PDF for this weekend's class instructions. The printable instructions are for 4 cards using the colouring, ombre, glitter and square mask effects. 

You can order by clicking any of the supply list pictures below.
