Translucent embossing paste…with a gelato twist!

Hey everyone!

Today I’m sharing a card that I’m entering into two totally awesome challenges:

Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge #12 and Virginia’s View Challenge #2.

Cure For The Monday Blues #12     VV2

I’ve combined these challenges for the simple reason that they are great starting points for colours and techniques. Here’s my card:

©Candles in the Garden. Tinted translucent embossing paste, die cut stars and a peg.

I created the background by tinting some translucent embossing paste with a Metallic Mint Gelato and pushed it through the Texture Cressida stencil from Memory Box onto a white panel. This gave me some wonderful texture and shine!

Once dry, I foam mounted the panel to a white card base and die-cut some stars from neon cardstock using the Hearts and Stars die from Memory Box. I sprinkled these onto the panel along with a large Clearly Besotted Geometric Rose vellum die-cut.

I stuck strips of some striped red and white washitape onto a scrap panel and first die-cut a square, then die-cut a heart in the centre. The gold showing through the heart is some Delicata Golden Glitz smushed onto another scrap panel and is so shiny! The sentiment comes from Clearly Besotted’s A Little Sentimental set and was stamped onto a piece of cardstock that had a light wash of Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

I clipped the sentiment and the die-cut square panel with a wooden peg which I coloured using a sharpie to match the background, and foam mounted to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekends!

    Love this card. The background with translucent embossing paste and Gelatos looks fabulous… and everything else, too.

    Translucent embossing paste is my favorite because it can be transformed with color just as you have SO beautifully demonstrated here. I love the contrast of the bright wash tape against the soft metallic mint too!
