Hey there, crafty friends! I am so excited that I get to share some new items from Altenew today! These cards were created with some of the new EMBOSSING PASTE and wide WASHI TAPES available at ALTENEW!

I wanted to show how fun this paste is, and how easy it is to add some over stencils. I created two cards using the DAHLIA LAYERING STENCILS and I love how these cards turned out!
I started by ink blending some color over the first stencil, Stencil A. Once I had a layer of ink down, I switched to my Stencil B to add the EMBOSSING PASTE. This paste is light and fluffy- think of the consistency of whipped cream. It was very easy to spread and work with, and also easy to clean up.
After I had paste applied evenly over my stencil, I removed the stencil, cleaned it up with a baby wipe, and sprinkled some GILDED EMBOSSING POWDER over it. Once you hit this EMBOSSING PASTE with your heat tool, it is like magic to watch! The paste puffs up as the powder melts, giving you a raised, textured finish.
I love how this textured finish was just perfect for adding a golden touch to these stenciled Dahlias!
I then fussy cut the flowers out of the stenciled and embossed background. I used these fussy cut flowers to layer over some of the new washi tape. This tape is the GOLD STRING tape. I tore it and applied behind the flowers for a subtle background that coordinated with that gold embossing powder.
I then finished these cards by die cutting some simple sentiments. I wanted these sentiments to almost blend into the cards themselves, so that the embossed flowers could really stand out, so I die cut these words with white cardstock.
This paste was so easy to work with, and the results are stunning!

Your cards are so beautiful, Marie! I so love the embossed gold paste on the flower petals…it makes those blooms really pop! Thanks for sharing your awesome creativity with us!
These are gorgeous!
Beautiful cards. Love the way you have combined the stencils, washi and embossing paste. Looks really gorgeous.
When I saw that Altenew came out with embossing paste, I decided to use it with this stencil in the same way you did! It was so great to see you go through the process in your great video. Your card turned out so very well. Thanks for the inspiration and the video.
