Embossing Times Two

** For my Shopping Our Stash post, please scroll down, or click here. **

One of the things we learned in our Stenciled Online Card Class was how to use embossing powder with embossing paste and stencils. I have had a tough time mastering this, but I finally got it, so I'll share the results.

Here is card #1:

I used the Simon Says Stamp Mosaic Heart stencil with white embossing paste, then covered it with different embossing powders. After it dried and I heat-set it, I had a bunch of red powder all over the white part, so I cut it out.

As an experiment, I covered a piece of card stock with anti-static powder before I added the embossing paste. I was afraid the paste wouldn't stick on top of the powder, but it seemed to do fine.  After heat-embossing, there was less of the stray powder, even though there was still some, so I guess it was a success.

Here's that card:

I think these large stencils are perfect canvases for the large sentiments I have that I so rarely use.

I'm off to stamp some more. Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: vat of clear embossing powder, and the following:


  1. Yea! Don't you just love the feel of the embossed paste? Your cards look great.

  2. LOVE these. I have GOT to get me some of that embossing paste. It's top of my list.

  4. Wow!! That's gorgeous. You have outdone yourself with these cards.

  5. I need rainbow EPs. And modeling paste. And more rainbow from you - I LOVE it :)

  6. The stencil paste and embossing powder is an interesting twist to the whole stencil scene. I like both cards with their funky feel.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
