Directions:

  • Place the stencil over the cardstock.  Place a piece of removable tape on the corners to keep the stencil from moving.
  • Rub the ink blending tool over the ink pad.  Rub on a piece of extra paper to smooth out the ink before using it on the stencil.
  • Gently rub over the stencil with the ink blending tool.  I started in the middle and worked my way out towards the edges.

  • Remove the stencil to reveal the design.
  • I forgot to remove the removable tape used to hold the stencil down.   So, I have tape lines.  Mistakes lead to opportunities.  Making the most of it, I cut the stenciled design down to size.

  • I adhered the stenciled design onto a 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of light gray cardstock and onto a 5″ x      5″ card.
  • I added a small greeting on the bottom right of the card.
  • To finish the card, I tied a sheer cream ribbon on the top of the card.

Vintage Home Sweet Home Layout

Home Sweet Home 3088 Lately, I’ve been noticing more and more people using embossing paste on their scrapbook layouts.

Hmmm…. I haven’t used embossing paste in years.

Matter of fact… my jars of embossing paste are over 10 years old.  (and still good)

So, I thought I’d give it a try with a simple layout and this old house picture.

Quick, Simple and adds a subtle punch to this layout.  I think I like it.

Embossing Paste Border 3092

Using embossing paste is easy: 

  • Lay stencil onto cardstock, fix in place with removable masking tape.
  • Apply a thin layer of embossing paste over the stencil using a palette knife.
  • Remove stencil and allow time to fully dry.
  • Make sure to clean embossing paste off stencil right away.
  • It’s as easy as icing a cake.
