Floral Mother’s Day Card with Embossing Paste

Last week, Ellen Hutson’s blog, The Classroom, was featuring Tonic Nuvo Embellishment Mousses. I have none of these mousses. They do look lovely, fun to play with. I really don’t know how often I would use them, and knowing that, how in goodness sakes would I choose which ONE of the 24 colors to buy??? Pink Flambe because hot pink is my favorite color? Or Aquamarine or Powder Blue for the sky/ocean possibilities? In reality, if I do eventually splurge (it is not in the budget for the foreseeable future!) on ONE, I would probably get Pure Platinum, because who can’t use a neutral metallic.

I have a two embossing pastes (clear, white) by Dreamweaver, and these can be colored by adding ink before spreading, and I can potentially sprinkle glitter on top after spreading (before it dries).

Today, I just spread the clear over a floral stencil. This is a card for my Mom.

Supplies: Stamp – Clearly Besotted, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Calypso Coral, Real Red, ink – VersaFine Satin Red, stencil – Heidi Swapp, embossing paste – Dreamweaver/Studio 490/Wendy Vecchi translucent, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – MarkerPop.

Primary Birthday Card

A very basic card! Primary colors and no real embellishments. I embossed only part of the background and then centered the sentiment on that line of demarcation.

Supplies: Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – MarkerPOP.
