Video: Coloring Texture Paste + GIVEAWAY

Hi there! Today’s video revisits a fun technique – – coloring texture paste.

[All supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post. Affiliate links used. To watch the video in HD on YouTube, click HERE.]

Coloring texture paste (or any other paste) is simple. For this card, I used a drop of reinker in a small bit of texture paste… resulting in vibrant color. I mixed it together with a palette knife and applied it to a stamped Peep image with a microbrush. (If you don’t have a microbrush, you could use a toothpick or even a fine-tip paintbrush.)

I used My Favorite Things Dye Ink Reinkers for coloring my paste because the colors are oh-so-lovely…

Before the paste dried completely, I also added a pinch of Cool Highlights Glitter from Elizabeth Crafts Design. The results? Very real-Peep-like!

Oh – and that fun stitched rectangle? I created that with a My Favorite Things Inside and Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle die. The sentiment is also from My Favorite Things – the Candy Jar Companions Stamp Set – and is heat embossed with Ranger’s Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder.

By the way, I like the My Favorite Things Dye Ink… especially when they’re “juicy” and well-inked. I usually do not reink my dye ink pads but this one I do (every 6 months or so). And the reinkers are affordable! One big perk of this ink: it is easy to clean off stamp,Β  leaving little-to-no transfer of the previous ink.

  1. I made a card last night using lawn fawn “get well soon set and then mini one as well”. It was a card that I layered the words get well soon the die cut letters and then took the bandaid stamp and cover the background of the card stock and then stuck the letters in the middle of the card.
    I finished the tops of the letters with glossy accents, to give them a pop!
    It turned out super cute!

  2. The most recent card I made was a sweet Thank You card for my aunt! Nothing like a hand-made, hand-written note of appreciation!

  3. The theme of my last card was Birthday. My niece turned 17 years old last week and I made her a card that said “You are a Fabulous Work of Art” and then inside it had a pretty Birthday Sentiment. She Loved it!

  4. Yeah another idea for using my paste….Love these peeps.
    My last card was a birthday theme for my godson. I have another birthday card to get done but you have inspired me to do a few Easter cards first.

  5. The theme of my last card was Easter, which I am planning on sending to my niece. Thank you so much for all your videos, they teach me so much!

  6. The theme of my last card was Thank You that I made to send my out of state Mother-in-law as a follow up to our visit this past weekend. I just discovered your site for the first time to today, and I really am impressed!!!

  7. The last card I made was a Christmas one … I was supposed to be making at least 1 a week, but so far my tally is 5!
    Love your bunny card, what a clever way to add colour to paste πŸ™‚

  8. The theme of my last card (made on Saturday) was birthday — for my cousin’s 4th birthday! I cut out a layered bird image using my Silhouette Cameo and then used sketch pens to write “Happy Bird-day Amelia” on the front of the card. It was a very easy, straightforward card that made a BIG impact with the birthday girl!

  9. Sadly enough it was a sympathy card. I used your technique of stretching my dies and made a leafy border on one side – a very peaceful card.

  10. The last one I did was for my cousin’s birthday so the theme was Birthday but masculine. I used several spellbinders dies that I had that have a sword, a shield and a rampant lion. I put them all with foam dots after painting them over a card that was embossed and inked to look like leather. I even put tiny jewels on the pommel of the sword and on the top of the shield. It looked sooo cool.

  11. Gotta loves those peeps. My grown kids would get a kick out of that card. They always wanted Peeps for Easter. I don’t care for them, myself. The theme of my last card was snowflakes that I made for a challenge. Using the resist embossing technique with water colors.

  12. The last card I made was a birthday card for my Uncle! I’m trying out Silhouette sketch pens to write sentiments so I used that as my sentiment and it turned out wonderful!

  13. I commented before I saw the giveaway prompt. Sorry!!
    The last cards I made were all using a mini banner punch and
    some twine. They are so clean and simple but very very cute.
    I made many of them with different sentiments underneath the
    little banner like thank you, Happy Birthday, Congratulstions, ect.
    to cover a variety of occasions.

  14. Happy to have a chance to win your giveaway! tHANK you! The last card I made was a masculine birthday card for my elderly neighbor using a favorite car stamp that I keep going back to for the masculine birthdays!

  15. The last card I made was a thank you for a dear friend. Those cards are staples for me actually and I make the most of them ans birthday cards! Thanks for your giveaways and wonderful tutorials! I just love them!!

  16. My last card was a new baby girl congrats. πŸ™‚ I love the way the bunnies on your card turned out; the texture is perfect.

  17. I made a cute birthday card with a princess on it (Technique Tuesday) . My sons gave it to one of their school friends.

  18. My last card was for my 5 year old daughter so the theme was basically “glittery sparkly unicorns”. LOL. But no princesses – she’s anti-princess.

  19. The theme of my last card I made was ” hello, you are totally awesome!” I make cards for a co-worker who is a “Soldier’s Angel”, sending cards to soldiers enlisted in the Armed Forces.

  20. My last card was a “thinking of you” theme that I sent to a friend, for no particular reason. It’s just been a while since we’ve seen each other and she was on my mind. I think they are my favourite type of card to send, because who doesn’t love to get a card in the mail, for no reason?

  21. Oh my goodness, those little bunny peeps are the cutest ever! Love the colored texture paste! The last two cards I made were sympathy cards for the family of a 98 year old woman. She loved flowers and birds, so I went with that theme and hope that the family gains comfort from my thoughts.

  22. The last card I made was a sunshine/Spring card for my daughter. She’s away at school and it was really cold and snowy in her part of the state.

  23. I did not like working with glitter. But with all the cool ideas like the Swiffer and the tape I will definitely begin using it. I love the look of the latest happy card. The tips and tricks are so awesome it truly inspires me to use all those products I pay so much for.
    Thanks Jennifer
