pti december blog hop...

Hello friends!!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  I know my boys did and mine wasn't too bad, either.  Playing along with the PTI December blog hop, as well as the current PTI Make It Monday... ala carte.    There were so many fun MIM challenges to choose from, but I decided to have a go at creating a flocked look with dimensional paste, MIM #113.    Working with the dimensional paste was fun, but a bit frustrating... don't even want to say how much cardstock I ruined before I got a piece worth using, lol!

 

I die cut some Rustic White cardstock  using the largest Tipped Top die and then a second one from SU!'s Smoky Slate cardstock.  I created a stencil using the Circles cover plate and a piece of  solid chipboard.  Once that was done I used a small offset spatula to apply the fiber paste.  I removed the stencil and let the piece dry.  The large leaf image from the Harvest Berries set was stamped using Smoky Slate ink and then the berries were added using SU!'s Melon Mambo ink.  The sentiment is from the Boutique Borders:  Thank You set.  I cut three lengths of PTI's cream button twine and tied it round the piece.  The Smoky Slate piece was adhered to the kraft card base and then the Rustic White piece was adhered using foam dimensionals.   Pretty pleased with how this turned out.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft & rustic white; SU! smoky slate; Stamps: PTI Harvest Berries & Boutique Borders:  Thank You; Inks:  SU! Smoky Slate & Melon Mambo, Memento Tuxedo Black; Golden Fiber Paste; PTI Rustic Cream button twine; PTI Tipped Top die, Circles cover plate

Wow! This is gorgeous, Rosemary! I love how much dimension you achieved with the paste and your stamped harvest berries set is such a pretty color combo! Stunning card and worth all the trouble you went through with the paste!

It sure was worth working with the paste - your card is gorgeous - do you know you can make your own paste with water and flour - I made my own - if you are interested you can find the recipe here: http://fun-stamping.blogspot.com/2013/09/make-it-monday-with-homemade-embossing.html, it costs you nothing and its easy to use.

Pleased you should be--this looks fabulous! Love the colors you used & Harvest Berries is one of my favorite stamps--never thought to stamp it in gray. You always inspire me, Rosemary!

Fabulous dimension, Rosemary ... all that hard work was definitely worth that awesome panel ... I want to touch! Gorgeous colours, especially the pop of the berries against the neutrals! Anita :)

Great design and color, Rosemary! I love what you did with the paste. I bought some a while ago and need to use it more.

Such sweet soft colors, Rosemary! Well, must say, had the same experience with my paste. Took a few trys, and never really liked what I came up with! But your's looks great and you finished the card with bright accents! Beautiful!

Ooh this is pretty! I like the colors you choose and the angles are great. Love the texture that paste adds - I find it a bit hard to work with too. Yours turned out great!
