Hello! Today’s video shows several fun techniques including DIY colored embossing paste, coloring with gamsol and much more. I also use a new stamp set that has quickly become a favorite!
(Supplies are linked in the thumbnails at the end of this post.)
Coloring your own embossing paste is very easy to do. In this video I show two of my favorite ways – with reinkers and with inks. I used the colored paste with the popular Simon Says Stamp Falling Stars stencil and also added my favorite sparkle embossing powder to the paste before it dried.
In the video I also showed how I used Gamsol for coloring these *adorable* new bunnies from Mama Elephant. (I will be using this cute set a lot!) I used Gamsol and colored pencils for years and have recently fallen back in love with them. I will do more videos in the future. But I will say – it is a less expensive option when compared to Copic Markers… and also easier to use.
The greetings on this card are also from Mama Elephant. If you are looking for a good sentiment stamp set, this is a great option. Many of the messages are great for the insides of cards, too.
How about some links to more inspiration?
- OLD Gamsol Video – This is good for a laugh… a video I did SIX years ago featuring gamsol. It was one of my first videos – don’t laugh! (I didn’t really start seriously doing video until the last couple years. I am a newbie!)
- Mama Elephant Blog – Here are some more card examples using the same great bunny set from Mama Elephant.
- New Mama Elephant – Like these stamps? ME also has a few other great products available. My favorite is Origami.
Thanks for stopping by!
