My New Found Love

I have been fascinated by you tube videos using embossing paste.Like this one or this one.
I finally jumped in and ordered some Dreamweaver embossing paste and the Falling Hearts stencil from Simon Says Stamp.  I'm i love!  I wish I had thought to take photos of the steps, but I was more worried about doing it right and forgot. 

I taped some white card stock onto craft mat and taped the stencil over the card stock.  I put gobs of embossing paste on the stencil and spread it around kind of mashing it in,  then I scraped the excess off.  There was a lot of excess.  lol.

 I will be using it again soon, so I'll take photos!

I made two cards from my embossed paper using the challenge from Pals Paper Arts as a starting point.

I had this image in mind of a bucket catching the hearts, so first I tried to line the stencil up and ink over the dried embossing paste.  I used a few different colors of pink and just let it e what it was going to be.  I cut a bucked from brown card stock and ran it through my cuttle bug with a woodgrain embossing folder and sponged it.  I typed the sentiment and printed and punched it and layered it.  
Then I assembled the card. The card bases are side fold, A2 style cards in pink card stock.  I added ribbon to the embossed layer and adhered it to the card base  I added the bucket on dimensionals and the sentiment on top of that. 

Thanks for looking!
