Hello everyone. Welcome to another BS & J Productions Stamp Off Challenge. Today’s challenge is to make something using the new Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste. If you haven’t tried this, you really need to. It is different than other embossing pastes because it dries quickly. You are going to love it!
My daughter-in-law to be has decided to go back to school to get her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. I am so proud of her doing this. It is going to be a challenge for her since she works full time, has a 5 month old baby (Emory Jade whom you have all met) and all the other things that need to get done in life. I decided to send her a card telling her how proud I am.
I thought the stamp set called Bike Ride would be perfect for this. It has a set of matching Framelits called Build A Bike (you can save 10% by purchasing both in a Bundle). Although, she is not a kid, school, bikes, books and apples all go together. I used the Embossing Paste to make a brick road. To get this color I added one drop of Cherry Cobbler Ink and one drop of Cajun Craze Ink. Stampin’ Up! sells the Pattern Party Decorative Masks in four different designs (one of which is the brick pattern). They also sell a package of three different Palette Knives to use with the Paste.
The sentiment is from Wild About Flowers. I masked off the different lines so I could stamp them in different places.
Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made using the Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste.
This is one of the cards we made at our monthly Club meeting. It uses the stamp set called Bike Ride. This stamp set has matching Framelits called Build A Bike. I love this set and most of my club members did too. First of all, it has this adorable bike. Then it has all these accessories that go with the bike. There is a basket that you can put flowers or apples in it. There is a dog and books. All of these images are two step stamping which means you use two stamps to make one image. That means you can use different colors without having to mask or use markers. If you buy both the stamp set and the dies in a Bundle you can save 10%!
The Designer Series Paper we used is called Fresh Florals. It has 40 sheets of double sided designs in all the 2017-2019 In Colors.
Bike Ride is one of the cutest sets in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The fun thing about this set is all the pieces of the bike are separate so you can easily use different colors to make it. The tires are separate from the rims so it was easy to stamp the tires in Memento Tuxedo Black and the rims in Bermuda Bay. The same goes for all the pieces. This is because this is a two step stamp set which mean many of the images are made using two stamps instead of one. This stamp set also has matching Framelits so it is easy to cut everything out. You can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle too! Plus, the images you can put on the back or front of the bicycle are adorable. There is a dog, apples, flowers and books. Each of them are two step stamps. Another interesting thing about this set is the pebbles on the road is a die that embosses instead of cuts.
The sentiment is from a stamp set called Colorful Seasons.
