Papertrey Ink Challenge # 254

The challenge this week is to use texture paste with stencils. I still don’t have any Papertrey Ink stencils, so once again the challenge for me is to find a Papertrey Ink substitute that I can use.

This is another project that looked better in my head than on paper, but it is kind of OK.

The biggest bummer for me was opening four different jars of embossing paste, only to find that they were completely hardened in the jar.  Luckily, my Ranger texture paste was “good to go” and I could just add some spray mist to make it blue.  If anyone has a foolproof way to store embossing paste, please let me know.



Supplies:  Papertrey Ink What the Doodle Wave die (made into a stencil), Papertrey Ink Keep Swimming stamp set, Ranger Texture paste,Radiant Rain Mist, Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp dye inks, recollections cardstock, Hero Arts card base and Scor tape.

Paper Smooches – Challenge Layers

The June challenge at Paper Smooches is to use layers.  It seemed odd to me at first as I think Paper Smooches is the Poster Child for CAS cards (Clean and Simple).

Sandra has made a card that shows that you can do CAS with layers.
