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.

    Great job Deb! Ive found if I scrape all the paste off the sides and make it kind of a “neat mess” in the middle of the jar then spray a little water over the top THEN put a plastic bag or plastic wrap over the top before screwing the top back on it helps. Or get a few small tupperware pieces to store the paste in since those are more airtight. I hate that feeling when youre all psyched to do a project and then one of the main ingredients is ‘toast.” Lol


    • Thank you. I have now put them in an extra plastic bag and will put some plastic wrap on the top. Interestingly, Tim Holtz said recently in a live chat that it is the additional Air in the jar as you use up the product that tends to dry up the product so I may try moving what is left after a project to a smaller airtight tupperware container.
