How To Create Whimsical Embossing Paste Backgrounds

I’m in love with this stamp set. And for some reason (even though she’s not a fan of pink), this card always makes me smile and think of my teenage daughter.  When did she grow up and get to be a teenager, anyway? No matter the age, the Quirky Critter stamp set is one of my favorites from the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.

Love the background?  I used the new Embossing Paste and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks, also from the new catalog that debuted in June.  The clouds are a perfect pattern for using with the paste. Whether you get the paste exactly smooth or have a little texture, the effect is terrific.

Meg’s Steps for Using Embossing Paste:

  • Place the Decorative Mask of your choice on the card stock. 
  • Use a palette knife to take Embossing Paste from the container and spread it across the template. 
  • Use palette knife to smooth paste and remove excess back to the container.
  • Close Embossing Paste immediately and wash both decorative mask and palette knife immediately.

This last one is pretty important.  Even though I made 30+ of these cards for a demonstrator swap (I’ve been doing a lot of those lately!), I washed the knife and the template every 3-4 cards.  The paste dries really quickly, so you’ll want to keep it from building up on the template.

Washing was simple – I just carried the template and knife to the bathroom sink and rinsed with water.
