Peace, Love, Joy and embossing paste with Ellen Huston Essentials


Hello everyone! And Happy day after World CardMaking day to you all! I spent the entire day in bed with  a terrible head cold/sinus infection! I am drugged up at the moment so perfect time to blog my next card using the Essentials by Ellen line… Did you see my post yesterday featuring 6 cards from the line? Today I am back with project #7. When I got this release, I just couldn’t put it down! It is all so fantastic! Today’s card uses the Brushstroke Christmas set. I love the big, bold sentiments and the stars and dot splatters on the set! SO much fun.  See the gold dots? Thats the dots! I stamped them in versamark and heat set them with some Enchanted Gold embossing powder!  The sentiment was heat embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder, my favorite embossing powder because it seems to go with everything!


Then I applied some embossing paste to this stencil and let it dry.  As a finishing step, I went over the entire panel with some worn lipstick and pumice stone distress inks and voila… All done… Loving all the texture and shine….

If you wish to see videos on ANY of the Essential by Ellen projects I have made, please let me know which ones in the comments… So far, I have two posts featuring these products!!!
