Shimmery White Embossing Paste (Oh My!)

Do you remember when I posted this project? See the post HERE!

I had some left over Shimmery Embossing Paste that I had added Merry Merlot re-inker to. I couldn’t let it go to waste, so I made another card. Isn’t that what we do? No wasting. LOL

Card Base: 4 14″ x 11″ Crumb Cake Card Stock

3 7/8″ x 5 3/8″ Merry Merlot cardstock

3 3/4″ x 5″ Crumb Cake (this is the layer that is embossed).

You really don’t need a lot, the Embossing Paste makes the card. Notice, I didn’t emboss the whole front layer. I used added a couple of Champagne Foil leaves from the Gathered Leaves Dies. The sentiment comes from the Band Together stamp set. 

Finished off with some Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack (I didn’t use the Cajun Craze Linen Thread), and a few of the Holiday Rhinestones.

If you haven’t used the Shimmery Embossing Paste, you should give it a try. It is AMAZING!

Jingle All The Way Card Class

Thank you to all who attended our class. It was so much fun! A big thank you to Dan at Matrix HG who let us use his conference room. We had a huge table with cushy chairs & bright lights to make all of our cards.

I love how Patty puts her cards together, assembly style.

This was our station for the Shimmery Embossing Paste and to use the Puff Paint with the Heat Tool.

Some Samples by me.

More Samples by Laurie

And you have to have refreshments.

Everyone received one of these Treat Holders with all their card goodies. Laurie brought candy to put inside. This set of candy holders uses the Night Before Christmas DSP & the Brightly Gleaming Stamp Set.

I made these for all the people who work at Matrix HG, as a thank you.  We put candy in these as well.  I used the Come to Gather DSP and the Gather Together Bundle for these Treat Holders. Thank you to Kurstan del Rosario for sharing the directions with me. They are really fun and easy to make. We are going to make one in my Night Before Christmas Banner & Treat Holder Class. See all the info below.

These are the cards we made yesterday.

Final In Color Club Card

Since this was my final card for my In Color Club, I wanted it to be a special one. Many thanks to Mary Deatherage for this card design. While I wanted a monochromatic card, I did end up adding one other In Color to each card.

Card base, 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″

Next layer, 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″

Whisper White layer, 3 3/4″ x 5″

Stamp the wreath from Tidings All Around ( you can get the bundle which includes the All-Around Stamp Set and receive 10% off). Stamp the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set to the top left. I then stamped the pumpkins on Shimmery Paper and water colored them with an Aqua Painter. You really don’t even need additional ink, as the color is picked up from the ink on the pumpkins. Then I die cut lots of the leaves in the Gather Together Bundle (another set you can get as a bundle and save 10%), all in the In Colors. I also die cut the sprig piece from the Christmas Layers Dies. Its a big die and I cut the sprigs apart and stuck them in all over. The leaves were curled a bit with my bone folder and sponged. Attach them with a couple of Glue Dots.

I used our new Delicata Metallic Re-inker in Golden Glitz and spattered on the leaves and pumpkins. Finished off with some of the In Color Faceted Dots.
