Sketch Challenge Tutti Frutti

Hello stampers!  We had a sketch challenge with our team and the entries were amazing.  I had to share with you all the amazing creativity that this design inspired.

I used the Tutti Frutti designer series paper black on white print.  I added Lemon Lime Twist to punctuate the color combination.  Isn't the glimmer paper a stunning focal point?  My supplies are detailed at the end of this post.
Our design came from Mojo Monday sketch 485.
Ann-Marie chose the Eastern Palace suite for her card.
Tamara went with black, white and pink for her entry.
The True Gentleman suite is featured in this sharp card by April.
Dani has glamorous paper roses on her card with the dazzling lemon lime twist glimmer paper.
The Petal Passion suite was Cathy's inspiration for her card entry.
Here's a great Father's Day card by Wendee, featuring the True Gentleman suite.
I love the variety of creative ideas that shine from this sketch!  This challenge really inspired our team.  Do you plan to copy any of these combos?

Technique - Embossing Paste

Hello Stamping friends!  Our technique at club this month was learning about embossing paste application. We made a stunning background for this card design.

 I used the new Shimmery White embossing paste with the Sweet Soiree decorative masks for our class.  There is so much sparkle in this paste, it is really eye catching.

I always use my learning experience to teach my class.  This rose mask was instructive to pay attention to the thickness of the paste. You can see such a difference in the thin vs thick areas on this rose.
Fortunately I make a couple of images each time I am trying something new.  So my other rose turned out better: practice makes for improvement!  I fussy cut around the rose to attach it with dimensionals to this card front.
My tips for embossing paste is to be prepared with a pan or deep container of warm soapy water to insert the mask and palette knives immediately after use.  The paste sets up rapidly and you do not want all that texture permanently adhered to your mask.  The shimmery paste has glittery flecks that will scratch the mask surface but it does not effect the functioning of the mask.

Have you used our embossing paste?  You will really love the look of our embossing paste.  You can make it any color by mixing in a few drops from our ink refills.  It is a quick technique to learn for a very professional and unique texture to your card designs. 
Here is a helpful video tutorial from Stampin' Up! 

We also offer matte white or silver embossing paste.
