Stencils and Embossing Paste are HOT on the paper crafting scene right now, right?  I’ve been playing with EP for several months now and the other day I thought, HEY!  What about colored Embossing Paste?

Sounds pretty fabulous, right?  I got out my Stampin’ Up Reinkers (Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight here) and mixed…the result was phenomenal!  Imagine the possibilities.

The entire process here, including how I colored the Embossing Paste, used my Wilton’s frosting spreader to apply the EP, my thought process behind making this card (seriously, the white flower piece sat on my desk…naked and alone….for about 3 days because I couldn’t figure out what to do with it.  Does that happen to you?) and the second card I made which I like MUCH MORE than I like this card.

Supplies (All Stampin’ Up unless otherwise noted):

  • My Favorite Stamp Set (Hero Arts)
  • Cardstock:  So Saffron, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
  • Ink:  Midnight Muse
  • Reinkers:  Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight
  • Accessories:  Sequins (I think I went a bit overboard with these, to be honest with you!), Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape, Rhinestones, Night Flower Stencil (Hero Arts), Embossing Paste,


Here’s a peek at the StampNation exclusive video tutorial project:

Have you joined us for the Basics & Beyond Online Class yet?  After months of work, it was released yesterday and already it’s a smashing success and getting rave reviews.  Thank you to all that have subscribed and left your feedback.  We appreciate you and if you haven’t hopped on board yet, well, we hope you will join us!

So now, leave me a note…what is the longest amount of time you have had a partially made project on your desk?  

Right now, I have three sitting on my desk from….wait for it…SEPTEMBER!  OYE!  Can’t wait to hear about yours.

    I have had one on my desk for a week. Finally the inspiration came and I went forward ad finished it. It was an anniversary card for my daughter and son-in-law..
