Stamping Handmade Hugs

When you can't hug in person, send a Handmade Hug you created, with Stamps, Paper & Ink!

When I heard SU! was going to offer embossing paste in their new product line, I was really jazzed! I figured I could use glitter on it, and it did work beautifully! It is very light weight and very easy to use, it took only seconds to spread the paste where I wanted it. I took a few seconds to secure the cardstock first, then the stencil on top of it. I cut the paper a quarter inch bigger than I wanted the finished piece to be. That way,  I could use the tape and not worry about it not having the embossing paste pattern at the edges. Then, I could trim the paper where the embossing paste missed once it was dry.

After lifting the stencil, I quickly covered all the paste with glitter. I left the glitter heaped on the embossed paper and ran to the bathroom to quickly wash the paste off of the stencil and the palette knife. The paste dries quickly and becomes difficult to wash off if you wait.

The paste covered with the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the Flirty Flamingo mat and Lemon Lime Twist card stock base is stunning, of course, much more so in person. The stamp set is from the Petal Garden Suite on pages 56-57 of the 2017-2018 Catalog-Idea Book, it’s called Graceful Garden.

I did fussy cut the rose, but it was so worth it! I’m finding the more I fussy cut, the less fussy I get about it. It actually goes pretty quick, with just a little practice. I try to stamp the inside of my card and the envelope at the same time I stamp the card front.

The stitched framelits work on so many cards, just the perfect subtle touch of texture.

    Love, love, love the glittered embossing paste.
    I find it easier to move my paper and hold my scissors fairly stationary when I fussy cut.

      Dazzling Diamonds is appropriately named, wherever it’s used, it really does dazzle! Yes, thank you for mentioning the cutting tip, that works well for me too! “Little” tips like that can make all the difference!
