Scrapbook with Embossing Paste – 242

Do you have a lot of technique and color media products that don’t get enough use?

If so, you might ask yourself why you would buy another one. Here’s why…

Because there’s one other multi-media product that can help you use just about all of your other ones.

Once you try Embossing Paste, you’ll want to see what you can do when you combine it with all your other supplies.

I demonstrated some of those possibilities in a video, and also showed how you can use it your scrapbooking. Embossing Paste is so much fun to use and I love the added dimension on my pages! If you’re a member you can watch this video tutorial now. You’ll find it in the Member’s Area and on iTunes.

  • I’m watching the video and just heard something like “embossing paste is called like that because it’s often used with embossing powder”; I totally disagree with that.
    IMHO, I think it’s called like that because of the embossing effect, I mean, whether you use embossing powder for heat embossing or embossing paste with stencils, you obtain the raised image effect.

    I hope that paste has an unfavorable scent to it because it sure does look like frosting! Makes me of the time that I gave into the temptation to find out what vanilla extract tastes like because it smelled so good…. it was horrible!

  • Unless I misunderstood her, I thought that’s what Jen McGuire said, but maybe not. You make a good point and you might be right.

  • I’m sorry to say that I haven’t smelled any scent at all, so might be taking some risks if you try it out! Ha ha!

    Noell – what was the clear stuff you used on the yellow-pink-orange-purpleish card you made?

  • That was just a basic clear embossing powder. It makes the white shiny but most importantly for this it acts as a resist.

  • Melissa LaFavers

    I really love this technique! I can’t wait to give it a try. Thank you for sharing it, Noell.

  • There is a discussion over at the Get It Scrapped forums about the Pantone upcoming trends – and I thought I saw embossing, tone on tone, more purple – and more organic designs – which made me thing of you, Noell – I think you are always mentioning how you prefer organic over graphic designs. I’ll be interested to see those new trends show up in scrapbooking.

  • Yes, but i’ve been happy over the past year with the way all the geometrics have incorporated organic qualities via watercolor and ombré effects. So it doesn’t surprise me that we’re continuing to move more toward organics. Do you have a link you can share?

    Finally got some embossing paste and I am certainly going to try it out soon.

    did I miss it – or could you show us how you made the template on your cameo? Love the sunburst – I’m off to look for that cut file!

  • Leslie, I’m not sure what you mean about the template??

  • Leslie McLaughlin

    what design is it in the silhouette store? it’s so cute!

  • Oh, I see what you’re asking. :)
