Techniques Series | Tone on Tone Embossing Paste

Stamping Techniques Series

Over the last few weeks we have explored a variety of Masking techniques, but I think this one is my favourite! Tone on Tone Embossing Paste…. now, I know that this isn’t really about the masking… but there is a Mask involved! So… I’m classing it as the final piece in our Masking journey!

Techniques video using Lift me up from Stampin' Up! How to use Embossing Paste

This fun card uses Lift Me Up and the coordinating Up and Away Thinlits…. along with the cloud mask from the Party Pattern Masks pack. I am loving the dimension created by that embossing paste… while it doesn’t distract from the card. I still slightly obsessed with this balloon die…. I really could just die cut it all day long

Top Tips:

  • Move EVERYTHING off your desk before you start…. seriously Embossing Paste gets everywhere (or is that just me?!)
  • Use a tile or Silicone Mat to mix your Embossing Paste and Re-inker
  • Add as little re-inker as possible… add too much as the embossing paste will become runny and you wont get that crisp masked effect

Tone on Tone Embossing Paste Video Tutorial using Happy Birthday Thinlit from Stampin' Up! UK

I am such a Purple girl…. I have a friend who buys me things, just because they are purple! … but I don’t use Wisteria Wonder as much as I should, it is so pretty… especially when paired with Gold.

Tone on Tone Embossing Paste Video Tutorial using Happy Birthday Thinlit from Stampin' Up!The Happy Birthday Thinlit is so pretty… although it can be a bit difficult to adhere to your projects. I would advise that you add Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the reverse of your card stock before running this through your Big Shot, this then gives you a self adhesive die cut for you to stick to your project!

This card is finished with a trio of Gold Stars from the Metallic Enamel Shapes…. gonna need some more of those really soon!

What is your preferred method for adhering detailed die cuts?
