Coming Home Christmas card with embossing paste!!

Coming Home Stamp Set, Home Together Dies & Shimmery White Embossing Paste

Have you noticed that lately I've been trying out lots of new techniques?

Today's technique features the Shimmery White Embossing Paste and I love it! 

You can purchase the Embossing Paste from my Stampin' Up! online shop - I'm so glad I got the glittery one but there is a plain option if you don't like too much sparkle!

My favourite Stampin' Up! colour is Pool Party - I haven't used it as much recently so it was time to dust it off!

I've paired lots of Pool Party elements along with a little bit of Smoky Slate and Basic Gray.

I mixed drop of Pool Party ink with a small amount of the Shimmery White Embossing Paste. 

With my spatula I applied it onto Whisper White cardstock through the polka dot Basic Pattern Decorative Mask, scrapping off any excess. 

I then set it aside to dry - it didn't take too long!

Next I adhered it onto my Pool Party cardstock base, adding Pool Party Sheer Ribbon - this ribbon is BEAUTIFUL!

Using the Layering Ovals dies I die cut a scalloped oval in Pool Party cardstock, I then added a a standard oval to fit within it. 

These dies - along with the Layering Circles and Layering Squares - are great staples for your craft stash, I use them so much!

I stamped the house image from the Coming Home stamp set in Memento ink and then coloured it in with Pool Party and Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends.

I honestly never thought I would enjoying colouring so much - I really love the Stampin' Blends, they are such a great product and I am slowly building up my collection of them.
