Make It Monday: Coloring Embossing Paste

This is a very special day, folks! I am so excited to share my very first Make It Monday video for Papertrey Ink with you. It is such an honor for me to make one of these videos…really a dream come true.
PTI~Make It MondayI used Papertrey ink refills to color my embossing paste as well as creating my own stencils from various dies. For this one I used the Mighty Bloom cover plate die.
PTI~Make It MondayBeing able to create your own stencils with dies gives you endless possibilities.

  5. What a great “first” video for PTI! Love all the dies now for making your own stencils for this technique. Got to try this…hope my embossing paste isn’t too old.

  6. The aqua, green and yellow flower, then the pink, orange, and gold alphabet are stunning! Beautiful use of color and diecut/stamped greetings!

  7. I love your style of presentation. I felt I was right there with you. In addition beautiful card and great technique! Keep up the great work.

  8. Tonight’s the night. It’s my night off from putting the little one to bed, I now own embossing paste, and I cannot wait a moment longer to try your technique out. I’ve always adored your cards using embossing paste (and every other card you’ve ever made ever for that matter), and I cannot wait to try it out. Wish we were neighbors and we could try this project together (I’d bring you chocolate), but the video is a great second best option. 🙂

  9. Congratulations on a great video for PTI. These cards are amazing. I’m so happy to see how to make my own stencil from dies. Thank you.

  10. OMG!!! You are totally wicked with all of your card creations. I love today’s ideas – make your own stencils and using an alphabet die …. I’m thinking I have an alphabet die that is still together and I can totally do this. Thank you!!

  11. It’s about time they let you be featured!! I was so disappointed when your name was not listed among the Stamp-A-Fair instructors. Great cards. Love your stuff!!

  12. Laura, I always love your ideas. These are no exception. I bought the embossing paste goodness knows how long ago, buut your colours have me totally inspired. Time to crack the cap and give it a go.

  19. Hi Laura, I look forward to watching your vidoes because I love the way as you say “babble on”!! Makes the videos more enjoyable instead of just watching someone give a play by play on the project they’re making. I also love your realness!! Keep up the great job!!

  21. Congratulations on your first MIM video. I can tell yours are going to be some of my favorites, as I always love your videos. What a cool technique. Only one teeny ‘complaint’–where is your cutie patootie helper? I kept straining to see a peek of sweet Emma, but she was nowhere to be found. Don’t tell me she’s off to school already?

  22. Love your video. You explain it so well and seem very down to earth~ I would like to know where you got your spreaders for your embossing paste. Would love to try this technique~ 🙂
