Happy Everything

Hello, fellow crafters!

Hope you are having a great week. The month is just zipping by but I did find time to play along with this month’s Inspiration Emporium challenge to use paste. Easy peasy and you can find all of the details on the challenge HERE. There is a great prize and we’d be delighted to have you play along.

For my card I paired some Texture Paste with a stencil and gold embossing powder. I LOVE the final look. So much squishy gold goodness.

To duplicate the look, start with a piece of cream cardstock and tape a stencil to it. I used the Tim Holtz Typo Stencil and I also like to tape the stencil in place so that it doesn’t shift. Next apply some Texture Paste, completely covering the piece of cream cardstock. While still wet, remove the stencil and then cover the paste with gold embossing powder. Tap off the excess powder and heat set with a heat tool. Tip – don’t hold the heat tool in one spot too long or the paste will puff up too much.

To decorate the the main panel I used the Think Happy Thoughts stamp/die set from Taylored Expression. I die cut the happy multiple times and adhered them together with Glossy Accents. I also coated the stacked die with Glossy Accents for more shine. I used a couple of Heirloom Roses (Idea-ology) and a white paper flower for decoration. The “everything” sentiment was stamped in Emboss It! ink and heat set with more of the gold embossing powder.
