What a fabulous week this has been, sharing our love of Dreamweaver by Stampendous Embossing Pastes with all of YOU! Today our expert Dreamweaver gals are showing off with some amazing creations featuring this fabulous product. But first, we’d like to share this project/tutorial as a bonus:
Welcome back to our Playing with Paste week here on our blog. There is a fabulous crackle embossing paste featured in our tutorial today that will have your mojo stirring up projects to make and there are also some great projects posted by some of our design team that you won’t want to miss. Take the links below to see their projects now then come back to see the tutorial with a crackling effect!
This great tutorial originally posted on the Paper Craft Planet blog by alumni design team member Cyndi Bundy and we’re happy to bring it to this week of special how-to’s with embossing paste. The tutorial includes all the materials and instructions to make the completed card from Cyndi’s project, however to create the crackle technique the first seven steps can be followed along with supplies marked with an asterisk (*) in the list below.
Cleaning supplies (shallow container with water, soft hand brush, paper towels and soft cloth)*
Alcohol Ink Pad
Removable clear tape*
Tape Mittens stencil down on all 4 sides making sure to start with the top so you will have a hinge.
Apply the Matte Black Embossing Paste using the Paste Spreader. (The first layer will be the color that peeks through the crackle so a darker shade gives a nice contrast.)
Scrape off the excess paste from around the edges and return it to container, cleaning rim before tightly putting on the lid.
Remove tape working backwards. Remove stencil using the tape hinge technique. Let this layer dry thoroughly.
Clean your stencil in water with soft brush and dry then reapply the stencil over the first layer of paste. Line it up almost perfectly, but at a slight diagonal. This will allow for the stencil to sit on top of the paste and the bridges of the stencil will have a higher surface to lie on.
Tape down stencil and apply crackle paste.
Remove tape and clean the stencil. Allow the paste to dry. And then magic happens; the crackles will appear when it dries!
At this point you can leave the crackle paste as is for a matte white finish or add color and shine with the following steps.
Apply ink with sponge applicator to crackle paste until desired look is achieved. Ink can be applied through a cleaned stencil (as shown) or without the stencil for a distressed look.
Sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder over wet ink, tap off the excess returning to container and heat being careful to stop before the stenciled paste starts to bubble.
Glue finished stenciling onto cardstock mat and adhere to cardstock base.
Place sentiment from Tis The Season Perfectly Clear Stamps Set onto acrylic stamp handle and stamp onto coordinating paper with Versamark Watermark ink.
Emboss with Chinese Red embossing powder. Trim and fold to look like banner.
Adhere sentiment onto card base.
The finished effect creates an amazing project, just think of all the possibilities for decor and gifts with this technique. See you tomorrow for more great projects and another video tutorial.
Hello and happy Friday afternoon. There have been so many great pretty poinsettia projects this week that we’re sure you have some new inspiration for your holiday projects.
Here’s a round-up of the week and access to the blog post for details are included so you can hop on over for review. We introduced Cling Create A Poinsettia Stamp Set on Monday and Tuesday with the coordinating Create A Poinsettia Die Cut Set and a great video from Fran with tips and techniques. Wednesday was scrapbooking day for a great use of your Stampendous stamps with memories in an economical way.
There are some fabulous stencils in our Dreamweaver Stencils Christmas section that we peeked at on Thursday with a step photo on how to combine stencils into a DIY ornament card. Today we are adding some of those sweet little mice from House-Mouse Designs to the inspiration palette.
Amanda and Mudpie share a solemn moment atop a Christmas poinsettia in this HMR41 Poinsettia Candle Rubber Stamp. The card below is done with colored pencils and all sorts of fun circles die cut, punched and embossed with our DWLX7029 Spiral Dots Stencil. The added sentiment from the new SSC1231 Holiday Expressions Perfectly Clear Stamp Set pulls it all together.
We hope you enjoyed our selection of poinsettia images and all the inspiration you’ve seen this week. There are even more design team blogs who are awaiting your arrival with more inspiring projects.

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Today we’re taking a quick look at our Cling Create A Poinsettia stamp to design terrific layouts for the holidays! This week is turning out some fantastic projects with this pointed leaf and we wouldn’t want to forget our scrapbooking peeps who love to use their Stampendous stamps on layouts.
This layouts is very festive and quick with large amounts of journal space.
Welcome back to another day of pretty poinsettias! We had a chance to see in video we posted yesterday all the possibilities using Create A Poinsettia Cling Stamp and Die Cut Set, but did you spot Fran’s great idea for keeping track of the parts of the free template included in the stamp package? How about her tip for lining up the dies onto the image for cutting quickly and efficiently every time? If not, stop by Monday’s blog post and see the video.
Today is a sneak peek at the products themselves before a little project treat or two as well. This gorgeous poinsettia flower arrangement is accompanied by a vintage style greeting for a great card or scrapbook page and yes holiday ornaments, too!
The coordinating die cut set will help layer the poinsettia flower into four sections, but really you can stamp and layer until it looks just they way you want. Just stamp out a few extra flowers from to create a beautiful three-dimensional effect with it.
One of the possibilities Fran shared in the video is to use thin chipboard cut with the dies to add stability to each flower layer and then add a jump rings to attach beads and a hook or loop for a pretty ornament. Here’s her finished sample she started in the video and it turned out beautiful!
Thank you for stopping by today and be sure to hop on over and see the wonderful project from our designer today —
