SU! Embossing Paste - Technique Club

So my Technique Clubs were so much fun this month as we worked with Stampin' Up's! new embossing pastes.  These are amazing and a little addictive to work with.   Below is a sampling of the plain white paste added to some colored cardstock.  It was much easier to work with than I thought it might be - the key though is 1) to have a tub of warm soapy water on the table to through the stencils and tools into as soon as you are done using; and 2) to be sure to keep the lid tightly on the paste when not in use - as it dries out pretty quickly.
Below is the Technique instruction card with the little sample that each lady made to put on it.  We used the Shimmer paste for this card - and added several drops of re-inker to make it colored - then applied the same as above and let dry.
So here is a sample of the same shimmer paste used with the lattice stencil - and then I popped up the sentiment and mermaid from the Magical Day Bundle.
 And yet another sample with the Magical Day bundle - but this one used the Silver paste - which is a bit different than the others.  I love how it looks, but 1) it is a little bit more liquidy to work with - works, but just thinner in consistency; and 2) it takes about 30 min to dry as opposed to the 10 min with the white and shimmer.  So although I really love the look - we did not do at a workshop.
And here is the same card from an angle so you can see the texture of the bricks - as well as the dragon and knight popped up on dimensionals.
This is really fun to work with - and like I said a little addictive.  The extra texture on the cards make them truly pop - and all for very little effort.  Just a little patience.  Hope you like what I've shown  you - let me know if you have any questions on the paste or any other SU products!  If you live in the Prescott, AZ area and are interested in joining one of my Technique clubs please contact me and I'll get you all the details!  ~Maureen
