Adding Color to Embossing Paste

Ok, so I’m jumping around again in the lessons for the Creative Stenciling class over at StampNation. In fact, I’ve decided I’m going to ditch providing the lesson numbers completely and just post my homework projects. It’s a lot easier that way. LOL

For this card, I used a lattice stencil from Heidi Swapp to create the background panel. For a bit of interest, I decided to try my hand at adding color to some pearlescent embossing paste. I wanted to create a bit of an ombre look in pink, so I used the pearlescent embossing paste as is on the top third of the card. For the middle third, I added some Spun Sugar Distress Ink to it. For the bottom third, I added some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to it. I really love how it turned out.

I stamped the sentiment from WPlus9 on a piece of vellum in VersaMark using my MISTI then heat embossed it in gold. I die cut it using the scalloped rectangle die from the Stamp of Approval Young at Heart collection from Catherine Pooler. I then ran it through my Xyron to turn it into a sticker and adhered it to the stenciled background panel once it was dry. I then adhered the panel to my card base made from 100 lb. cotton candy cardstock from Simon Says Stamp using some 1″ wide Scor-Tape. To finish the card, I rounded the corners with the 1/4″ side of my Corner Chomper.

Until next time …
