Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Wedding Card

Oh my gosh, Peaches!!!! I'm so over the moon right now! I've been dying to share the news that the brand new annual catalog has finally launched. I apologize for the delay, being that it actually released on June 1st. Unfortunately, I was unable to even enter my craft room for the past week. If you've been following me, you know that my house is in utter chaos with all the construction happening at the moment. Well, it's finally done (for now), so you can bet the first thing I wanted to do was bust in there and get crafting. I am alone in this or do any of you get withdrawals from crafting after being away for too long. It was awful and I constantly felt like something was missing. Well, the timing couldn't be more perfect to get my creative juices flowing again with the new catalog release, and  it is AMAZING!!! There is certainly something for everyone in there and I'm pretty sure I need it all, lol.





To celebrate the new catalog going live, I've created a few cards using a few new products. I wanted to highlight a particular product that I'm so happy has made it into the catalog-the Embossing Paste!!! This embossing paste is smooth and creamy and offers so many possibilities. It has a matte finish which allows you to add any color re-inker to customize your projects. Truly the sky is the limit with this paste.



Along with the paste, 4 new stencils have been released. However, for my first experience with this paste, I've had an idea in mind to try for a few months now. I used the center hexagon die from the Window Box Thinlits to create my own stencil. This is such a creative idea for making your own stencils. Just look through your dies and you might find a fun new way to use them.

I then, mixed some paste with re-inker on my Silicone Craft Sheet, first with Lemon Lime Twist Ink Refill and Bermuda Bay Ink Refill. I placed my stencil over my projects and added the paste with Palette knife. An important note is that you clean your tools right away as the paste can be very difficult to clean once dry.

The paste does dry very quickly, so I just put it aside while I prepared the rest of my projects. For the sentiment and embellishments I used the gorgeous new Colorful Seasons bundle. I watercolored some paper and die cut the leaves. I think these cards are elegant and I'll use one of them as a wedding card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, Peaches, have a beautiful day!
