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.

I've used embossing ink, but not really any embossing paste! Beautiful! Is it too messy and time -consuming to learn in a class?
