Having Fun With Embossing Paste

Hello Friends!

Embossing Paste has been around for a long time, but I sure don't remember it being this fun! I believe it all has to do with the amazing quality of the Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste.

It is so smooth, and dries in no time at all.  And there are so many techniques you can do with it. (click on the picture to go to my online store for all the details).

When I was first playing with it, I did a few card fronts just using white paste on white cardstock. Then I thought, oh let's colour this.  So I added a few drops of Lemon Lime Twist reinker.  I couldn't stop making art pieces to use.  I took a card from Amy Koenders and turned it into a journal for our recent trip to Asia with Stampin' Up!.  Then I thought, I could do a cover for some note books for my Monthly Stamping Club!  Here's what I came up with for the journal ....

I loved working with the Embossing Paste so much that I created a Technique Class with 3 beautiful cards.  Of course then I could not stop and I have created a few more projects as well.  But those I will share later on.

Yesterday was the Embossing Paste Technique Class, here is one of the cards we created ....

I used the embossing paste "natural" right onto the black cardstock. Then after it dried for a bit it was sponged it using Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Lemon Lime Twist.  I used the Oh So Eclectic bundle (Oh So Eclectic stamp set and Eclectic Layers Dies) to make a floral spray and added some Black Shimmer Ribbon.

It doesn't take any time at all for the paste to dry, we just did the pasting first, then it dried while we created the other elements of the card.  You can also use the heat gun a bit to hurry the drying time along, just be careful you don't burn the paste.

Here's a video by Stampin' Up! on how to use the paste.  If it disappears, CLICK HERE for the link ...

I hope you get a chance to create with the Embossing Paste.  If I can help you get your supplies, CLICK HERE to go to my Canadian Online Store, or EMAIL ME and I will be happy to help.

Seasonal Chums - Rudolf Card

Hello Friends!

Whew what a busy summer.  It's so nice to be back to "normal" again.

It all started with our trip to Asia in June.  I qualified for a one week Grand Vacation to Phuket, Thailand with Stampin' Up!  We decided to extend our trip to S. Korea, Viet Nam and Thailand, and we were gone for 24 days in total.

Then home again and a wonderful visit with our DIL and youngest Grandson.  We headed to our cabin for a few days, and then came home and got some quality time with our local Grandsons and some camping time.

Now the travelling is over, and it's time to get back to classes, blogging and sharing again.

Today's card is one I whipped up for my Wednesday morning Senior's Group.  We meet every Wednesday morning at 9 am at the local rec center.  These ladies are so amazing, and they have been inviting me back for 8 years now.  Some are brand new to stamping, and some have been stamping for 40 years or more.  They often teach me things as well.  This card is a "GMO" which means Glenda Mollet original.  I hope you enjoy.

I knew I wanted to use the Seasonal Chums stamp set and the Rudolf image in particular, because it is just so darned cute.  Here's the card ....

The supplies I used are:
Thick Whisper White card base 8.5 x 5.5
Cherry Cobbler 4 x 5.25
Basic Black 2.25 x 4
Merry Music  Specialty DSP 2 x 4
Basic Black 2.75 x 7/8
Whisper White 3 x 3 and 1 x 3 and 1.5 x 3
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper 1.75 x 2.5

The rest of the supplies can be found below my signature.  Just click on any image to go to my online store where you can order the supplies.  If you need a Canadian Holiday Catalogue please EMAIL ME and I will be happy to mail one out to you.  Please use the Host Code found on the right hand side of my blog and I will send you some card tutorials as a Thank You!

Ready For Christmas Bundle Card Share

Hello Friends!

Whew what a whirlwind few weeks it's been.  We left for our Asian Adventure on June 23 and our first stop was Seoul, Korea.

We discovered a huge underground market / mall in downtown Seoul where we were able to see so many people and foods.  The mall was under a casino, and it went on and on and on.  We had a snack and just sat and people watched once we had wound our way through the market.  We also did some walking around, but it was so hot and humid we didn't stay outside for too long.

Here's a picture from Seoul ....

I will share some pictures over the next few posts.  But  meanwhile, on to the Stamping!

While we were away, we spent the last week in Phuket, Thailand at the Angsana Lagoon Resort.  That was the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip part of our adventure.  Stampin' Up! bought out the entire resort and we had an amazing time.  It was so cool to talk to everyone and know we belong to the same group and could talk Stampin' Up! and Stamping all day long.

We did receive a whole bucket load of goodies from Stampin' Up! as pillow gifts and gifts.  One of the bundles we received is the Ready For Christmas bundle.  It includes the Ready for Christmas stamp set   (photopolymer) and the Christmas Staircase Dies.  I couldn't wait to get this stamp set inky for the first time.  Here is a card I created using the bundle ...

This bundle has so many wonderful pieces to it that you can create cards quick or complicated.  I chose to make this card a mid way one.

There is even a cute little "Weiner" dog image!  How adorable.

This stamp set and matching dies will be available on September 1st when the new 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue goes live.  If you don't have a Canadian Demonstrator yet, I will be pleased to get a copy of the new catalogue to you.  Just EMAIL ME and we can make the arrangements.

During August, if you order the Coffee Cafe bundle from me (see picture below and click on it to go to my online store) and use this month's Host Code  EK66FXHX I will send you the Coffee Break cardstock pack AND Corrugated Elements FOR FREE!!!   If your order is over $200, please don't use the code as your order qualifies you for Stampin' Rewards.  I will still send you the paper and embellishments!!!

Paper:  Real Red, Garden Green, Whisper White, Wood Textures designer paper, Gold Foil
Ink:  Garden Green, Real Red, Marina Mist, Smoky Slate
Marker:  Real Red

You Move Me Bundle Video Share

Hello Friends!

Thanks so much for putting up with my video blog posts.  It's been a while, and I will be keeping it up for a couple of more posts.

The new Stampin' Up! videos are wonderful and I love watching and seeing how different bundles and suites are all about.  Today's video share is the You Move Me Bundle.  You can find this bundle on page 170 of the new 2017-18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.  You are going to "need" to get your hands on this bundle right away.

If this video disappears, please CLICK HERE and you can watch it directly on Youtube.

When I first saw the You Move Me stamp set in the catalogue, I was not interested at all.  Thankfully this was in Calgary at the OnStage Local event.  Stampin' Up! shared how this stamp set works with the Move Me Thinlets Dies, and there was a huge gasp from the Demonstrators in attendance. I am sure it happened at all of the OnStage events just as it did at ours.

The stamps move as you pull them through the die cut.  The wings flap and it appears like the butterfly or hummingbird is flying.

I am hoping to be back with some card shares soon!  Please come back.

CLICK HERE to go to my Online Store and place your order and I will send you a special gift.   If your order is over $200 Canadian, you will qualify for Stampin' Rewards. I will still send you the Special Gift.  I am also available by EMAIL and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Embossing Paste!!!! At Last!!!

Hello Friends!

Such a long wait for Stampin' Up! to come out with Embossing Paste!  I used to play with this a bit in my early days before I became a Demonstrator.  Now it's back and I can't wait to play with it again.

The catalogue also includes Palette Knives that you will need to use the Embossing Paste. These products can be found on page 201 of the 2017-18 Annual Catalogue.

Here's a video for you on this amazing new product.....

I am sure there will be lots of ideas on how to use this paste, but when I am writing this post nothing has been posted yet, because Demonstrators just got access to this product.  But I am sure ideas are coming.

If you can't see the video above, CLICK HERE to watch it on Youtube.

CLICK HERE to go to my Online Store and place your order and I will send you a special gift.   If your order is over $200 Canadian, you will qualify for Stampin' Rewards. I will still send you the Special Gift.  Of course this won't happen until I get back from our trip! I am still available by EMAIL and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Our fantastic vacation is over  :( and I will be back to share some great things with you, I hope.  LOL  Our Grandson from Northern BC is visiting, so we will be having a lot of great playing time, and none of it will be  In My Craft Room.  But I will be back!!!

Have a Crafty Day!
