I have been wanting to try Embossing Paste for a while. I went to Michael's, unsure of what to buy. They do not have any paper craft brands, specifically. I looked at the products in the art department and walked away. I had no idea what was the best choice!
Last week All Scrapbook Steals had a super sale on a Teresa Collins, my second favorite paper company behind PTI. Here is their site http://www.allscrapbooksteals.com/
I ordered the paper and since I was paying shipping, I added this embossing paste:
And this stencil:
I made this card:
I am pretty happy with it. I put a small amount of the paste with the stencil onto some white paper before I went to get my husband at the airport yesterday. This afternoon after a DREADFUL basketball game, I worked with it. I just used my inking tool and lightly inked it to help the pattern show.
Not bad for a first effort...
Next I want to try it on colored card stock.
Thank you for looking at my blog!
I got these, too! They were $3
