A week  or so ago I shared with you a video by Stampin’ Up! highlighting a new product Embossing Paste and the tools required.

All these products can be purchased through my shop by clicking on the pictures below


At last my delivery arrived and in my delivery was the Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste and tools…so when I saw what the challenge from Global Design Project

I new what I wanted to do..


The background for this card was created with Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste and I made my own mask..

Other products I used where Stampin’ Up! Rose Garden Thinlits and sentiment is made from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set.

How to Create your own Mask to use with Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste….

  • I created a mask for my card from a piece of Stampin’ Up! Window Sheet…HINT- Make sure it is larger than the card you are working on, mine was smaller and I got paste onto the outer edges of cardstock. Thankfully I was trimming it down to fit.
  • On my grid paper I drew up the mask I wanted to create, the areas blocked out are the areas I want to cut and remove. Place the window sheet over the top and adhered down with washi tapeimage showing Mask to be cut 
  • With a craft knife and metal ruler I cut away the areas not required…there is a self healing mat under my grid paper. If I was cutting curves I would have a glass mat to allow for movement and slip and I would have drawn the image onto window sheet with a permanent marker before cutting.

  • Remove window sheet from grid paper and its ready to use.

  • Place your mask over your cardstock and fix into place with Washi Tape and apply Embossing Paste

*Clean your Mask and tools straight away before Embossing Paste dries as it will not remove once dry.

To complete the card I cut the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and 2 small flowers in Berry Burst from the Rose Garden Thinlits. I layered the Leaf and one of the flowers on top of the other and adhered to card front. The sentiment is two stamps..I Love You & So Much – I lined these up together on the block and used Basic Black Ink to Stamp onto the vellum. I made the length of the vellum longer than card front so I could wrap around to back of the card and adhered with a small amount of Multi Purpose Glue. The second flower was then adhere to the vellum – hiding any glue used on the vellum underneath. The Berry Burst Mat was attached to the card base and the card front raised up above with Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals.

Hope you like my card and if you are wanting any of the products used here are all the links back to my store, any questions please contact me.

Have a wonderful day…and Keep on Stampin’
