Playing with Embossing Paste - Take 2

Before I show you my card I would like to let you know that I will take a blogging and commenting break to spend some time with my family in Germany.

In my last post I promised to show you the card I made with a stenciled panel that didn't buckle because I used heavy Stampin' Up card stock. Julia inspired me to use colored cardstock. This time I also added some sparkle to the embossing paste. (Can't tell you right now what it was I added because I am not at home while I type this...) You can see it in the close up, although it didn't sparkle as much as I hoped for. This card looks very different from my last one...

Stamps: Altenew (flower, leaves), Uniko (sentiment)
Other: Memory Box (stencil)

Here is a close up to show you the sparkle in the embossing paste.

  2. Love these colors and the sparkly embossing paste! Another fantastic mixed media card, Susanne! Thanks for sharing it with us at CAS Mix Up!

  3. Aus Dir sprudeln die Ideen ja nur so heraus. Auch diese Karte ist wieder eine Augenweide, tolle Effekt das leichte Glitzern. Ich besitze gar keine Strukturpaste ... sollte ich wohl mal ändern!!!
    LG Gundi

  4. Beautiful design, Susanne. LOVE the sparkly embossing paste design on that pretty green background. And your flower is just gorgeous. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! Enjoy your time with your family. xx

  5. Ein toller Effekt mit der glitzernden Strukturpaste!
    Die einzelne Blüte kommt darauf sehr schön zur Geltung.
    Ich wünsche dir eine schöne Zeit mit deiner Familie und eine gute Reise ✈
    Ganz liebe Grüße

  6. Wow, die sieht fantastisch aus! Toll diese​ Struktur! So einfach und so wirkungsvoll!!

  7. Wow, Susanne ... that shimmery embossing is just gorgeous with the soft green ... love the concentric circles ... that beautiful bloom is so perfectly placed against it! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Have a wonderful break, my friend ... happy and safe travels! Hugs, Anita :)

  8. Oh Susanne this m.b. stencil is just fantastic!!! LOve what you've created with it! Such a beauty ... have fun!!!

  9. I'm so happy to hear I inspired you Susanne! and thank you for the shout out! Your full pasted stencil here is beautiful on the light green paper and the circles mimic the edge of your lovely bloom! - and I can see the sparkle - bet it's even better in real life! Thank you for joining us again in the CAS Mix Up challenge! Julia xx

  10. This is my new favorite card of the entire year anywhere in Blogland, Susanne! It is so unusual and so, so cool! Julia was right about using the colored card, too! Just brilliant in every way!! Hugs, Darnell

  11. Have a wonderful trip, Susanne! I'm in awe of this gorgeous card--love the design & colors!

    1. Congrats on the well-deserved shout out at Time Out!

  13. Your design with the embossing paste looks amazing! The shine is so pretty. You've even used my favorite flower stamp! Absolutely brilliant card! Thanks for joining us at TIME OUT and enjoy your holidays in Germany!

  14. Wow the shine looks fabulous and i love the circle stencil you have used. Loving the flower too. Enjoy your time with your family. Hugs Mrs A.

  15. Encore une autre merveille avec cette nouvelle carte, Susanne ! Je devrais penser à utiliser plus souvent la pâte à embosser, et qui plus est sur du papier de couleur ! J'ai l'impression de survoler un champ de blé et de voir tous les sillons laissés par la machine ! Splendide aussi cette fleur ! Vraiment un magnifique ensemble ! Bonnes vacances en Allemagne et profites en bien ! Bises

  16. Gorgeous embossing paste with sparkles and such wonderful texture for your beautiful flower. TFS Susanne and enjoy your time with your family in Germany. So pleased you were able to join us at CAS Mix Up.

  17. Guten Morgen;))
    Wie kann man so ordentlich arbeiten ?? Das sieht so großartig aus!! Vielleicht sollte ich doch mal mehr Farbe einsetzen - du machst richtig Lust darauf !!
    Ganz liebe Grüsse Elisabeth
    Und dir eine großartige Zeit in Deutschland!! Bring dir ein bisschen Sonne mit :))
