Ink it! Stampit! Blog Hop - Using Embossing Paste


Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop. The Design Team have been busy making projects using specific techniques. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects and we'd love to hear from you on what your favourite technique is.

Once you know a technique you can use it over and over again, for example I can't image card making without the masking technique, it is almost second nature to me lol!  I am still working on water colour backgrounds, and using bleach just scares me silly.  Today I am sharing a project with you using Embossing Paste - a new product in the 2017-2018 Catalogue, it's great way to add colour and texture to your project in your own custom way!

Now if you know me, you know I love a little bling, so I stepped up my project to include glitter



I will admit that this didn't turn out quite to plan, I spritzed some coloured water onto the paste, but my colour was to diluted to make a difference to the colour of the paste, but never fear, glitter to the rescue - it looks fab even without the touch of green I was trying for in the background!



I used the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle for this spectacular bunch of flowers, wrapping Berry Burst Finely Woven ribbon around the stems and attaching the bow separately. There are 21 framelits, so no fussy cutting with this bunch!

Here's a quick video tutorial of how I used the Embossing Paste for this project:



Some key things to remember when using Embossing Paste:
  • try not to leave little bits around the top of your jar, it will dry out 
  • a single drop of colour goes along way - remember less can be more!
  • you only need to apply a light coat over your stencil
  • wash your stencil and palette knife as soon as possible
  • it drys quicker than you think

There are LOTS of different ways to use Embossing Paste, you can also create your own stencils, or if you are really adventurous you don't even need a stencil - I have a plan to use glitter emboss paste on Christmas Trees, stay tuned to see that!

Cool Treats | #WWYS125


Welcome to this weeks challenge at What Will You Stamp? This week the set we are showcasing the super kewl "Cool Treats" stamp set.
This stamp set also has matching Frozen Treats framelits which make this set even more fun. I've made a frosty treat that looks so good I had to go get ice cream from the freezer - topping and sprinkles who can resist!




I die cut Chocolate Chip (I just had to use this, hahaha) cardstock for my topping, then clear embossed it to get this lovely shine.  I applied a generous coating of Wink of Stella to the ice cream too



Lastly I dressed up the bowl with a little silver metallic thread, and applied a selection of iridescent sequins to match my Lime Lime choc chip, So Saffron rainbow, and Flirty Flamingo ice creams.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Jay Soriano


Welcome to another Crazy Crafters Special Guest Blog Hops. Jay Soriano from the UK is joining us today and we've all selected a project to CASE (Copy & Selectively Edit). You can see all Jay's wonderful creations at Mitosu Crafts 

Jay has lots of wonderful creations as well as instructional videos, I decided to CASE this card: 




The streaks of light gave me an idea for a Christmas in July card, here's what I was inspired to create:


I used the emboss resist technique stamping the large star with versamark and clear embossed.  Then I created my "streaks of light" from the centre of the star.  I also stamped smaller stars from the Star of Light stamp set with versamark to create the Night of Navy background - this is a great way to added interest to the background of your card.

Be sure you hop all the way around our Crazy Crafters hop and see all the incredible creations, and if you have a chance please leave a comment, we love receiving comments! You are currently on my blog, Sue Vine - Miss Pinks Craft Spot , check who is below me and that is where to head to next! Thanks for hopping with us.

Daisy Delight | #WWYS124

Welcome to this weeks challenge at What Will You Stamp? This week the set we are showcasing the amazing popular Daisy Delight stamp set


This set also co-ordinates with the Daisy Punch - so popular it went on back order within weeks of launching!  

My project today utilises the smaller flowers in the Daisy Delight set, the set is "double stamp" which means you have one stamp for the detail of the image and another for the background - you can see this with the pink daisies below:




I love how easy photopolymer stamp sets are to use to line up images for stamping, this enables you to use different colours for foliage and flowers with ease.  I was also able to "bend" the long stems of the daisy to create the effect of a bunch below the Scalloped oval sentiment.




I used the masking technique to break up the sentiment so that it fitted perfectly within stitched shape oval - I adore these framelits, the stitching has such a lovely delicate effect, and layer beautifully with the Layering Ovals framelits. I mixed up the Bakers twine for something a bit different, and just love how this turned out.
