Embossing Paste Pizzazz, Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of my Embossing Paste Pizzazz. Today's techniques are the more advanced techniques, but as you'll see they aren't that hard!

First up, the basic supplies, once again.

Technique #4: Embossed Embossing Paste

When I first heard of embossing paste, I thought it was a way to adhere embossing powder. It really is designed to stand alone, but it also can be used to emboss and the results are A-MAH-ZING! 

For this card, I applied the embossing paste, and then added Copper Embossing Powder and heat set it. So very cool. I then added the branch and leaves from the Seasonal Layers Bundle. For the leaves, I did the rock and roll technique with Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze. I then added the vein framelit on top of one for added flair. The banner was cut with the Banner Punch out of Crumb Cake with Early Espresso Ink. 

Technique #5: Multicolored Embossing Paste

I had the most fun with this technique and love the colors created! 

Cool, huh? I used Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise, and Melon Mambo Reinkers for this embossing paste. I mixed up a couple of drops of reinker and paste, then applied one color at a time. Where the colors mixed, I got even cooler colors. The video shows it better, but here are my other cards:

See the variety? The all pinkish one is when I was running out of paste, so mixed them up and made extra backgrounds. I love ice cream and I love playing with the Cool Treats photopolymer stamp set and the Frozen Treat Framelits. I went out of my comfort area by using Lemon Lime Twist as a background. The rest just came together. 

Technique #6: Painted Paste

This technique scared me. I was afraid it would be too messy, but actually, it wasn't so bad. Clean up was easy, especially since I kept a dish of water nearby to soak my materials until I could clean up.  I decided that painting on a die cut would be better so I used the whipped cream from the Coffee Cup Framelits to make a cupcake:

Mixing up just a small amount of paste is challenging so I had extra to use on many cupcake tops.

I loved playing around with different layouts. Nothing boring here! The Designer Series Paper is from the Oh So Eclectic Bundle- proving that even the flowery bundles can make not flowery cards. I made the straw into a candle. The Peek-a-boo Peach flame was created by punch a 1/2 circle, and then punching it again to get the ovalish shape. 

I hope you enjoyed this class!

Happy Stamping!
