Combining heat embossing with embossing paste

Today I’ve got 3 super easy cards to create so if you’ve not really dabbled in Mix media before this might be a good place to get you going! I like to combine dimension with my stencils and embossing paste or heat embossing is such a great way to do that. But it is even better when we combine the two techniques! I’m also sharing my tips on adding glitter!

Combing heat embossing with embossing paste

Position the Twister Stencil over a white card panel with the centre of the twister towards the top. To keep this in place whilst I work I like to use the Wendy Vechi Make Art Stay-tion.

Next, with a spatula, apply embossing paste through the stencil. Remove the stencil, remembering to wash your stencil and spatula to prevent the paste from drying on them. Next, cover the wet paste with Gitty’s Power Embossing Powder

Once the paste has dried, heat set the embossing powder. This powder is translucent so you will get a nice shine to the dimension. To finish the card add a sentiment from the Love & Hugs Fab Foilers in Blush Fab Foil and embellish with gold sequins. 

Embossing Paste with Embossing Glitter

Again, apply embossing paste through the Twister Stencil over some Coral Hero Hues cardstock. Cover this powder with California Gold embossing glitter

Once dry, heat set the powder. Even with embossing paste , still heat-set embossing glitter from the back to make sure no glitter is lost. 

Trim this panel down and add it to a white card base. Again another sentiment from the Love & Hugs Fab Foilers in Gold Fab Foil onto the front and embellished with clear sequins. 

Transparent paste with Glitter

On a non-porous surface, mix Lobster Eco Sparkles into some Transparent Matte Texture paste. Next, apply this through the Twister Stencil onto white cardstock.

As the glitter is mixed into the paste, you do not need to heat set this panel. Trim the panel down and add to a white card base. 

Lastly, add another Love & Hugs Fab Foilers sentiment in Blush Fab Foil and embellish with gold sequins.
